A wild rose, by the wayside hong Dew-glittering, on the morning air A pare, scarce conscious, perfume dung ; I tooled, sad found the gow'ret fair go fair, I sought, with sudden rest To weir its bbauty on my breast. The trembling petal* at my touch A sweeter, subtler fragrance shed ; Tie strange 1 loved that flower so much, And—it was dead. In that high mood when thought hath wings. And finds alone its speech in aong, I struck an old harp'* slumbering atrtiiga, Aiul drew an idle hand along ; Nor deemed the careleea chorda had caught. The life-note that my spirit sought. Till sndjen on my star Jed ear IU dnwro-created accents woke. Alack 1 1 bought the rapture dear The string had broke. 1 heard a wild hird on the shore. Singing a wild aong to the sea ; And bold the bnrden that it bore, And sweater than all else to me— So swvel, 1 caged the bird to hear His magic nunstrvlsy more near. Untamed, the captive's swelling throat In one sad song his whole soul cast; Too well 1 knew his loveliest note Had been his last. And yet while nKtmwy hath power To ooont the boars too vaiuly spent. The fragrance o! that faded flower. That harp's last dying music, blent VTilh the wild bird's weird death-song, will Haunt every srakuvg moment still. . Teaching my heart tlie bitter cost Of all the eye of hope hath seen, Of all that life hath wou and lost— That might have been. On With The Old Love. A THANXSOIVISO STOKT. Miss Jane Rath was louelv ; the sen* ration WAS au odd one. And she was At A loss what to do with it. She had lived for fifteen years a solitary life, had prided herself for a decade and a half on being independent of and indifferent to the rest of the great human family, and now she grew suddenly weanr of her Belf-iniposed solitude. It might be be cause it was Thanksgiving week, and everybody about her was so busy and bustling and happy, or it might be from many other reasons; but whatever the cause, the fact remains that, on a certain sunny moraiug in November, Miss Pinch nwoke to the knowledge that her condi tion was not to be envied. In vaiu she tried to argue herself back into her old self-satisfaction. It was just as true now as it was yesterday that her brother James had married Sarah Jones—a girl she thought she had good reasou to hate : but, someway, there was no pleasure to be gained from comparing their jpoverty with her riches. A monster turkey was just being brought into her next door neighbor's ; it reminded her that the following day was Thanksgiving, and also reminded her that she hail yet to provide herself with the culinary wherewithal without which no Thanksgiving dinner might be properly celebrated. It always made Miss Pinch's face burn to think of Captain Abel Jones—first cousin to her obnoxious sister-in-law. Long ago, when she was in her teens, they hail been lovers, and everybody knew that, as soon as he got his" ship, A Del Jones sad Jenny Pinch were to be man and wife; but cine evening she ran over to Sarah's (they had once been bosom friends), and hearing voices in the parlor, had stopped a moment todiaoover who was there. In that moment she had seen Miss Sarah crying, as if her heart would break, with her head on Mr. Abel's shoulder. Quite ignoring the fact that these two had been brought up together, and that Abel had time and again told her that Sarah was jnst the same to him as a dear sister. Miss Finch grew righteously in dignant; yet she was just—very jnst, in deed she would not judge them on this evidence, although to most anv one it would have been proof enough of a very disagreeable fact; but she would wait, ami see how their conversation accorded with their position. So she waited. "Don't crv," said Mr. Abel Jones, pleadingly, "I am sure I can fix it all right She isn't nearly so fond of me as you think; and you know, Sarah, how "dear yon are to her. HI break it to her gently, and Tm sure she'll give me up of her own accord." Now, Miss Finch hadn't a jealous na ture, not at all! but the most unsuspi cious idiot in the universe could not have , misunderstood that speech. It was very evident he wanted to be free from her. So she stole gently out, without letting them know of her presence, walked home at railroad speed, and, with a very proper self-respect, immediately tied up his picture, his few presents and his fewer letters, and sent them back to him with the pretty falsehood that she found she didn't like him well enongh to marry him, and should bs obliged if he would release her from the engagement. She didn't propose to be jilted by him —and she wasn't Then she went off on s visit, staid two months, and came home to find her brother engaged to her false friend, and her false lover nowhere. In vain she endeavored to prevent this marriage. Her brother would not be convinced, without absolute proof, that Sarah Jones was not a perfect woman. She begged, pleaded and nrge<L But pride prevented her giving him the one fact of which she had become pos sessed, and so the two were married, and she took her fortune (left her by her father's only sister) and herself to an other town, gradually withdrew herself more and more from the world, until, at twenty-six, she was s confirmed misan thrope, seeing no one. This sort of existence she had kept up until the time onr story opens. Why Sarah Jones married James Finch, and why Abel Jones was still s bachelor sea-captain, were mysteries she did not trouble herself to explain. Sure of their treachery, what mattered it to her how they spent their livee ? To-dav Miss Finch, in thinking over her past, acknowledged to herself for for the first time that she might have been hasty ; not so far as the stalwart sailor was concerned, bat about her brother. " I don't suppose I ought to have ex pected him to give up his sweetheart without any reason," she thought " I wouldn't have done it myself. I believe J'll send them a good Thanksgiving din der. From all I can hear, they ain't able to do much in that line for them selves ; and with a sudden twinge of conscience, the mote acute from being unusual, Miss Pinch hurried on her bon net sad shawl, and started off to market. Oh, the marvelous purchases she made f Pumpkins, and cranberries, and turkeys, and chickens, and barrels of potatoes, onions, apples, flour and evf rvthing else in tha eating line that conld be desired. "I'll give 'em a Thanksgiving that ■will last the winter," ahe aaid, grimly; and then, all of a sudden, ah ■ felt "a great desire to partake of the good thing* she had generously provided I've a good mind to go down and oat dinner with 'em. I don't know as I'll be welcome, but they can't do more than shut the door in my face. I believe T'll try it, any way. .fames and I are +he only ones left, and I don't think it ia right we should live any longer in this way. According to all accounts, Sarah's been a good wife to him." .And so that night Miss Finoh started off for a visit to her brother' 6. James Finch looked forward to Thanksgiving Day with no great pleasure. Captain Abel Jones had just returned from a voyage to the Indies, and, as was his custom, repaired immediately to the home of his oousin Sarah, there to re main until such time as his ship should Ire ready to start again. "And yn hear nothing at all from Jenny ?" T# him Jane Finch, spinster, aged forty-one, was not the grim, formidable woman she seemed to everybody else. He had not seen her Bince her girl hood, and bis memories of her were all of that happy time. " Jio. p.uid James Finch, sadly. " We hear of her, but nothing from hair. She still livee alone, and atill rofuaea to hold communication with any of ua. " Captain Jones looked around the p orly furnished little mom, and sighed. " She has changed greatly," lie said ; "if she can enjoy her wealth, while you are struggling on iu this style, 1 cannot understand it. But there's do use in talking it over. Years ago we decided that it was incomprehensible. Gome, to-morrow is Thanksgiving, and we must bestir ourselves to give it a lieaVty re ception. ' The husband and wife well knew what that meant. Captain Jouca proposed to provide the Thanksgiving dinner. James Finch, with all his poverty wns a proud man. " I can't take it," said ho, resolutely. "If 1 was iu need, Jones. I'd come to von ; but I can get along very well with out that; and so, until I'm unable to provide myself with oue, I wou't have an v." What tlie captain would have said, must forever remain a mystery, as, just at that moment, the disputed dinner, in the shapeof Miss Jane's dotation, drove up to tlie door. It was in vain that Mr. Finch protest ed that the load was not for him. His name and address on the card wore cor rect, and the expressman refused to ln> convinced. Then the captain was impaled as the aender : but his astouiahmeut was so evidently genuine, that the veriest skeptic in the universe could uot but have believed him innocent. Hut that mystery ! Mrs. Sarah was a tilitarian. She did uot waste her ener gies in trying to imagine where the things oame from —uot she ! She rolled up her sleeves, put ou a big apron, and weut townrk. • Oh, the marvelous time she made that day! But, after all, it was little wonder, for she impressed every body—from the big, good-natured captain to little six rear-old-Jimmy—into service. Miss Jane made her appearance, bright ami early, ou Thauksgiviug uiorn iug. Mrs. Sarah was alone in the kitchen when alie entered. "How do you do, Sarah?" said she, not very cordially, it must be confessed, for, although prepared to extend the right hand of fellowship to James and tlie little ones, she cr.nld not, even now, look upon her aister-iu-law except as a traitor, whom ahe would be obliged to make the best of. " Oh, Jane !" and Mrs, Sarah, with one rush, left her cranberries to take care of themselves, and gave her hus band's sister a heartier welcome than ahe deserved by a good sight. Miss Jane didn't return her kiss, but ahe snffered it; and though she did mut ter " Judas!" under her breath, I think she was a good deal more comfortable than ahe would have been if her hostess had been as cold and stiff as herself. " Draw right up to the stove, and take off your things," and the little woman bustled about, in a whirl of delight, j'* Oh, wou't James be glad ! Dear, dear ! He onght to be here this min ute. And to thiuk it's Thanksgiving Day, and we've got so much to be thank ful for !" And then her thoughts went back to their unknown friend of the day before, and, like s flash the truth came to her. " Oh, Jane !" she went on, with m grasp, " I see now, it Vas you sent us i the things. Oh. dear! how can we ever thank yon ?" Then she rushed back to the cranberries, which showed sigu* of stewing over, and, for the first time siuce her entrance. Miss Jane had a chance to pnt in a word. She hail just opened her month to say something in explanation of her sudden appearance, when the door opened, and in walked Captain Abel. " Got anything for me to do, Sally ?" he asked, with a laugh; and then the great-whiskered man stopped short, per ceiving the stranger, who sat just in front of the fire. Miss Jane had been a beauty in her youth, and even now was not at all ugly. Her eyes were bright, her teeth were as white as ever, and her dimples were not things of the past, by any manner of means. But for a few wrinkles, and a hard look, which was the natural result of her hard life, she would ha* e been a very handsome woman. She had not changed so much as had the captain; but both were recognizable, and each, after one glance, knew the other. Mr*. Sarah looked up from her cranberries eagerlv. "Oh. Abel, here's Jane—Jane Finch 1" Captain Abel came forward, and ex tended his hand; bnt it was an awkward meeting. They hail not seen each other ainee the breaking off of their engage ment—over a score of years Ivefore—and both of them were uncomfortably eon scions of the fact. But Captaiu Abel draw a chair up to the stove, and tried to talk as if he hail forgotten all about it; they discussed the weather, the crops, and everything else they cared nothing about, until Mrs. Sarah, who was all in a whirl with the surprise of Mis* Jane's visit, and who could not keep still—try as she would—broke into the conversa tion with : " Oh, Abel, do yon rememl>er the last day we saw Jane, dear? What a mess I was in ! I was engaged to Jim. and no body knew it; and mother was Itound yon and I ahonld make a match of it. I never shall forget the afternoon we de cided to tell her all abont it Good ness, how I cried—on your shoulder, too, Abe—and how yon tried to convince me that poor ma didn't care mnch about yon, and had jnst as lieve I'd take some body else, if yon only explained it to her properly—and you were right, too 1" And the little woman, quite overcome by these reminiscences, opened the oven-door, and commenced sn energetic basting of the turkey contained therein. Poor Miss Jane was too much aston ished bv this revelation to be prudent " And wasn't yon in love with Sarah ?" she asked, breathlessly, of the captnin. "In love with Sarah!" he repeated. '• Why, I was engaged to yon." " I know it 1" she said. " Bnt I thought yon—" " Thought what ?" and the captain drew his chair eagerly toward her. " Wa* that the reason you acted sa toward me ?" If silence gives consent, Miss Jane confessed that it was, and he went on ; " Well, now that you know it wasn't so, what are you going to do -sliont it?" And Captain Abel hitched his chair closer still. Miss Jane didn't pretend not to under stand. " We're too old!" she murmnred. Bat, a week after, she was Mrs. Abel Jones : so it is to be supposed that Cap tain Abel vetoed the motion. How Texan Forger* Worked. The Kansas City Times, in an account of the Texas land swindle, saya : One of the Urgent hanking bouses in Austin, Texas, two Chicago houses, bankers, and two real estate dealers, and two attor ney* in St. Louis, a bank and two real estate dealers in Indianapolis, and other* in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Pittsburg, are to be, or have been arrested for be ing connected with the fraud. It also says there has been a well-organized system of forgery in full practice in the Western country for the past eight or nine years. Tfie same organization which ia now forcing the Texas scrip on the market has been perpetrating some of the most terrible forgeries ever perpe trated. Tho mode of working by the gang is this: They have agents in each district with attorneys in the cities. An old man or woman of wealth falls snk, and the doctor* give her or h m np as likely to die. In some places the gtng have a doctor as one of their agents, and he assumes the death of the victim at the proper time. A. person having been assumed to die, and the gang, having examined the record of the property belonging to the doomed person, the heirs are sought for and duly examined by the gang. Then deeds are prepared in due form, and a woman or man (each members of the gang) appear be fore a justice or notary, and the dying man's property is duly deeded away be fore his death,'his name forged, and that of his wife, and the same placed on reoord.

Fair* aro of very early origin. Wo aoo thorn in their inaipient stages a* far back ae the time of Constant mo, when wo read that Hebrews, Gentiles and Christians assembled in treat numbers to perform their several rites about a tree reported to be the oak under which Abraham received the angels. At the same time, adds Tosaiiuua, there also oame together many traders, Indh for the sale and purchase of wares. St Basil, toward the close of the sixth cen tury, complained that his church was profaned by the public fairs held at the martvr's shrine, and under the Fatimite eal.plis, in the eleventh century, there was an annual fair held even on Mount Calvary. 'lhe most ancient fair known in France appears to have been that of Troves, iu which mention is uisdc m a letter of Sidoniu* Apollouartus, toward the eud of the fifth century. More than two centuries after llagobert 1 founded tlie fair of St. Denis. This fair was not only tlie oldest, but it was one of the most iwlrbratal fairs of France. It lxgan on October 10 and lasted ten days. It was opened by a procession of mouks from the Abbey of St. l>euis, ami iu later times it was usual for the parliameut of I'aris to allow itself a holiday during lite time of tlie fail iu order that its members might attend. The great fair* of France began with tlie celcbrwt d " Ptirt* dr Chatapayiu tt dr Brie " m the twelfth century. To these fairs docked mer chants from ail tue provinces of France and also from foreign lands. Ihe duration of each of these faint was six weeks, and there were an in the course of a year, so that they occupied aim? uiouths out of twelve. The great fairs in Germany were those at Frankfort ami Magdeburg. In Kugland the great fair was that of St. Bartholomew, whose memoirs are act forth in a very interesting maimer by Heury Morley. This fair lasted from 1138, wheu it was fouuded by Haver, a prior tf the abbey of St. Bartholomew and former jester of King Heury I, by a charter from the royal hand, to the year 1855. when it was proclaimed for the last time. In old times fair-goers were a priv ilegcd class of persona and were granted certain immunities. The lords of tlie land through which merchants pa-o-cd were obliged to requite whatever loss traders suffered by spoliation in passing through their territory. The importance of these faint was recoguiSi-d thus early in their history. They had an im|>rtaut effect not only upou the wealth of the country, but upou tlie social relations of the |>eopte, and U|hhi the language itself. At what time amusemeuts were first introduced to add to tlie attraction of fairs is not definitely known, but it was quite early iu their history . They began, probablv. with miracle plays, given in connection with the religious festivals, and as the religious element faded slowly away, we may suppose that these amuse ments became of a until at last they formed the principal features of tlie present fair. In this country the yearly agricultural show is perhaps tlie nearest approach to the time-honored institution. What we commonly call a " fair" is, however, but the ghost of that old. rollicking figure of the past.— Wuontijrkrt Patriot. Curious Phenomenon > n the Oil Region*. A correspondent of the Jiattimorr American rays that at Titusville, Pa.. Senator Anderson's beautiful ground*, on the suburbs of the citv, present a splendid sight every clear night during summer. The great attraction is the fact that they are brilliantlv illuminated by natural gas from the Newtown well, about four miles distant. This well yields nothing but gas, and whentirst opened the n>ar of the eaotping gas conld Ih> heard, it is said, for a distance of seven miles. The gas ha* since been confined so a* to l>e conveyed in pipes to the city and is used extenaivelv for eooking and heating purpose*. In the house of Senator Anderson not s stick of wood or lump of coal is used during the year either for cooking or heating. He uses the gas in cooking stoves and in open grates in his parlors, sitting rooms, and chambers. It gives too tnnch smoke to be used for light indoors, and simply takes the place of fnel. There sre about twenty standards on the lawns and around the fountain and lake in the senator's gronnds, and one magnificent arch, the innnmerable jet* from the pipe each throwing ont a flame sltont twelve inohe* long. There are about twenty standards in all, with about thirty jets, each jet throwing out a fierce flame from twelve to eighteen inches long. The portion of the grounds illuminated is to the extent of about four acres, ami is a* light a* day in everv part. The fountain is a magnificent work of art, surmounted by a nymph pouring wnter from sn urn into a goblet, and four nwans. each throwing stream* into the basin below, while there is a beautiful floral display at the base of the foun tain and on the gronnd surrounding it. The lawn is kept in splendid condition, intersperse.! with variegated flowers, and the effect of this brilliant illumina tion may be imagined ami.l such a scene of floral attractions. The ga* is also nsed for heat in the conservatory, and we are informed by the gardener that the entire cost of the gas used for domes tic purpose* and illumination of the gronmls is but 8100 per annum. The force of thiaga* is so grant that recently, in tapping the pipe to pnt in a service pipe for a dwelling, the particles of iron were forced ont with such velocity as to enter the flesh of the plumber's srm. The ga* from the Newtown well is exten sively used in Titusville in place of fuel,"similar to its nse in the mansion of Senator Anderson, and thorp is some talk of nsing it for the general lighting of the city. Air and Light. Air is essential to human life, and AH respiration destroy* its vital qualities, the ventilation of moma which are in tended for habitation should be a primary object in all architectural plana. Architects, however, seldom provide for the ventilation of rooms otherwise than as they provide for the admission of light Now, the properties of light and air, with reference to our domestic re quirements, differ in some im]ortant particulars—of which it may not be amiss to give a brief enumeration. Light moves with nniform velocity ; air is sometimes quiescent, and sometimes moves at the rate of thirty miles an hour. Light diffuses itself with much uniformity; air posses in a current from the point of its entrance to that of its exit. Light, whatever lie its velocity, has no sensible effect on the human frame. Air, in the shape of a partial current, is both offensive to the feelings and productive of serious diseases. Light, once admitted, nupplieH our wants till nightfall. Air requires to he replaced at very short intervals. Light may be conveniently admitted from above : nir requires to be admitted on the level of the sitter. Light, by the aid of ground glass, may be modified permanently. Air requires to be vari ously adjusted according to its direction, its velocity, the seasons, the time of the day, the number of persons assembled, etc. Mountain Climbing. The greatest altitude which has been reached by mountain climbers was at tuned in Cashmere by Mr. Johnson, who some years ago mounted to a spot 22,200 feet above the sea. Aeronauts have ascended 30,600 feet and rctnrned with safety. It is supposed the most height that life can be supported at this alti tude has been proved by the adven turers who have dared the clangers of the upper air in a balloon. During the last summer M. Weiuor ascended Mount lUimori, one of the loftiest peaks of the Bob vain Andds. The height of this mountain has been variously estimated, Mr. Pen*land giving it an altitude of 24,200 feet-; Mr. Micbm setting it at 21,224 feet, and Mr. Weiner himw If making it to be only 20.112 feet. Few asoents to the height of 21,00" feet have been recorded. Hunters on the Hima layas often chase their game to the height of 20,000 feet, and natives living near Mount Demnrend, near Teheran, frequently climb to the summit above, 20,000 feet, to gather sulphur from the crater.

A elnirt time ago a traveler took liia flr*t stroll among the hill* which etnnrrle Asheville.X.C., the North Conwuy of the Carolina*. After a toilaoine a*ceiit, he reached the brow of a precipitous hill side overlooking the town, and panned to enjoy the far-reaching prospect. Hud denly there appeared unto him the lov lieet woman he had ever seen. Among thoae handsome hills, hi* eve* had falleu upon many a lieauty with ifark eye*, rich complexion and shapely figure, but never upon auch a splendid creature aa thin. She had been gathering chestnut*, and was hastening homeward with two lad*, brother Tim and brother John, at her heel*. Roadside greeting* between stranger* are onstomnrv in western Car olia, and it wit* not mirprisiug that she smiled, and said, "Good evening." Hut the traveler, not content with a passing glimpse of so fair ft face, detained her with a gesture. " Pardon me," he said, "can you tell me the name of this moun tain ?" "It is the Heau-Catcher, sir," she aaid, demurely. " A very oild name," was the traveler's response; " and the next peak yonder?" "Oh, that is ilon eylip; and the one far off to the right we girls call the Hride'a Bonnet, Imcanse the trees are so gav and bright ill the fall." Brothers Tim and John were hun gry. " Come, His, the victuals will be cold, I reckon," shouted one of the lads impatiently, and in a moment the gleam ing of her whito teeth and the glitter of her dark eyes vanished in tlie darkness, and the traveler was left to continue his sentimental journey alone.

He owns 593,000 acres, a large part of which is in Canada and at the West." I wish to correct this by saying that Wilson Waddingham, now of New York, is believed to bo the largest landowner iu the United States. He owns in one compact body on the Canadian river in Eastern New Mexico 655,000 acres, for which be has a United States government patent, and improvements that represent a large sum of money. On this estate he has, in connection with another gen tleman, about 3,000 head of cattle and 12,000 head of sheep, the nucleus of a live-stock-growing operation.
