The moon is low in tbe sky,
And a sweet south wind la blowing
TYhero the bcrsramot blossoms breathe aad dio
In the orchard's scented snowing;
Cut the start are lew, and scattered lie
Where the siskins moon is going.
With a lure sweet ache a strain
Of the night's delicious fluting
Stirs in the hsart, with as sweet a paiu
As the flower feels in limiting.
And the soft air breathes a breath ol rain
Over bads and tendril shooting.
For the sweet night faints and dies.
Like the blush when lore confesses
Its passion dusk to the check and eyes
And dies in iu sweet distresses.
And the radlent mystery fills the skies
Of possible happiness.
Till the sun breaks out on slicuvcs
And mouths of a pink perfume.
Where the milky bergainot slakes its leaves;
And the rainbow's ribbon bloom.
Of the soft gray mist of the mornlny, weaves
A rose in the roso's loom.
The feg, like a great white cloth,
Iraws out of the orchard and corn.
And melts away tn a film of froth
Like the milk spray on the thorn;
And out of her chamber's blush and loath,
Like a bride, comes the girlish mvrn.

she left the room ere he could pre

acter and sallv forth ia search of a
Across the street, in a neat cottage,
lived three sisters of less than thirty
yers, and many longing glances had
been seat tb.ouph it closed parlor
blinds toward hm dwelling; many
times his passing figure bad set their
hearts w ildly uuttcring, only to sink
in disappointed vexation as he failed
to come in, aud at this cottage Jere
miah resolved to make his first mat
riaionia! venture.
We will pass over the prepara
tions incident to this momentous er
rand without comment. Tbe atten
dant fijaicial damages were tbe com
ple'e demoralization of half & dozen
silk ties and three cambric handker
chiefs, of which he anointed one with
hair oil and deluged another with
liquid blacking before recovering his
senses sufficiently to render the third
redolent of the "I love you," as a
delicate interpretation of his senti
ments; so that it was in no enviable
state of mind that he brought np at
last on the Misses Simpson's door
step and knocked for admittance.
Tbe door was opened promptly by
a slip shod damsel of fourteen, who
stood pushing a disordered crop ol
bair out of her eyes.
"Is is Miss Simpson in V stam
mered Jeremiah.
The child gave her L ad an Affir
mative plunge, and was immediately
extinguished by t'.e precipitated
shock of hair.
"One on 'em is !" she replied sen
tentiously. !

Our hero was ushered into a dark
ened parlor, and banging the door
shut she left him to grope his way
to a chair. Presently foot steps were
beard; Jeremiah's heart began an
obstieperou3 thnmping, and had there
been an open door or window handy,
to his eternal disgrace be it 5poken,
he woold have embraced the mode of
escape. But there was something
vastly better to be embraced, and in
another moment Miss Simpson stood
before him.
"So delighted to sec vou, Mr.
Sykes! Isn't it a lovely day ?"
"Yes, yes !" stammered Jeremiah ;
"so pleasant I thought I'd come
and "
"Yes, Mr. Sykes!" prompted his
hestesj, as ocr, hero appeared to be
falling into a state of hopeless im
becility. "I thought I'd come to to it's
such a beautiful day !"
"Very!" endorsing the sentiment
as emhusiasticly as if it was perfect
ly original; "add your farm looks so
attractive. 'I often envy you your
"Yes, 1 like it!" murmered Jere
miah, showing symptoms of recovery.
"Oh, yoa must! and you have a
good housekeeper? It's so hard for
a single man to get suited in that re
spect." "Yes," Jeremiah sighed, "mine
does ve.- well, but I feel the need
of a a "
"A wife 1" said Miss Simpson ap
preciatively; "yes, you should Lave
one." .,
"I'm going to!" energetically
"and you live so near, perhaps "
Miss Simpsoa became delightfully
confused. .
"Please to speak a little plainer,
Mr. Sykes."
"I I want a wife. Miss Simpson 1
Will you have me?"
. A in iu tried eob aBd chuckle escap
ed Miss Simpson's lips; and this be
ing tbe appropriate crisis, she let her
head sink upon bis shoulder. - :, j
"Oh, Jeremiah ! are you sincere ?
Of course I am! Aint yon?"j
said Jeremiah, taking the cue. j
"Sineere now and always 1 and 1'llj
prove it by fixing aa early day," andj
the customary lover's seal" served
as aa appropriate punctuation point. 1
"Now it's all done !" ezclainied tbe
reileved lover; "only don't tell any
body yet awnile!. It'll make such
talk , and I feel so 60 nervous!"
"Your wish shall be my law, Jere
miah!" was the obedient response;
and an hour subsequently Jeremiah
took his departure, leaving his fiance
in a delightfully satisSed state, and
finding bis housekeeper in a commen
surate consternation at his prolonged
absence, and on tbe point of investi
gating tbe well to ascertain if he bad
committed suicide therein.
"I didn't know sparking was so
easy," be soliloquized over his even
ing pipe; "bnt there! I've no idea
which ono of the three 1 proposed
to! I must reraembe; and ask to-mor
row. bne'U Know anynow 1"
On tbe morrow, however, Jerusha.
the fortunate one, found to her vexa
tion that she had a business errand
that must be attended to. Her sis
ters were likewise gone out ; and be
fore starting she called her Abigail.
' Betsy, if Mr. Sykes calls o-day
tell him I'm out. Do you hear?"
"Yes, 'm" said Betsy looking as
stupid as possible. .
"Don't forget," and Jerusha de
parted; while two hours later Jere
miah again stood at his inamorata's;
door, but in some uncertainty as to

"and that sbe sbe said 'yes.'
Anyhow, I'll ask her again to make

Meanwhile tbe second sister, hav
ing coje earlier than usual, was
seated deep in meditation and em
broidery in the parlo". The slip-shod
Abigail, on duty, as usual, answered
bis modest knock. :
"Is Miss Simpson in?" Jeremiah
asked, in a low tone.
The girl treated him to a stupid
stare, and then her usual plunge:
"Une on 'em is."
"Waiting for me, of course : I'm
right," murmered our hero.
"She's ia the parlor," pursued
BeUv, with a dive of her hand in
that direction.
"All right," and Jeremiah slipped
a five cent piece into ber willing
hand: "go on with your work I
know the way."
The slight noise had not disturbed
Melinda, and for a moment Jeremiah
cofT:emp!ated his inamorate. ! Yes,
sbe was the" at least as far as his
short sight and the dark room reveal
ed; and, stealing up behind her, he
bent down and treated himself and
herself !a such cases it's generally
a mutual treat, is it not reader ? to
a hearty smack. Melinda turned
with a shrill scream. :
"Ob, oh, Mr.fiykes!" she faltered,
hiding her face. . ' .. : -

around ber jvaist, his courage rising
"Yo j. ain't mad, are you ? Don't

"Love you ?" echoed Melinda ; "ob,
Jeremiah II love you now, and I'll
love you forever 1 You may claim
my-my hand whenever yoa please!"
"I declare I never loved anybody
so before!" protested the happy
8ivaio ; "give me a kiss ,my angel, to
make certain."
His fiance obeyed with alacrity,
and Jeremiah at last arose to go.
"When will you come again,
Jerry," his lady-love asked.
"1 shall be away to town a few
days after a ring and thing. And
don't tell anybody we're engaged
yet a while," with a slight lingering
trepidation. " ' ; 5

response, "and yen won t won t '

Jeremiah walked home, feeling tol-

Another plunge.

murmered Jerusha, and Betsv de
parted, not feeling called upon to vol

Fr several days Alvina noticed
an anxiety on tbe part of her sisters
which they vainly strove to bide.
Jerusha, especially, grew alarmed at
ber lover's absence, and doubts of
bis constancy and visions f "breach
of promise" suits haunted . her dis
turbed fancies, while Melinda for a
while bore her lovers absence with
great equanimity, but as it grew pro
longed became nervous in her turn.
Finally, the two sisters bad another
call from home, leaving Alvina in
charge of tbe bonse, acd each one
soognt tier witn toe identical re
quest : ' -,
"If Mr. Sykes,' or any one" the
"anyone" to lull suspicion "calls
for me, tell them I'll be home by

A'.rina assented; but when alone
gave ber besd a contemptuous little
"Mr. Sykes visit won't be for you.

Late that afternoon, Alvina, from
the . parlor , window, : saw Jeremiah
leave bis gate, and actually enter
hers! She gave ber bands one elas

Sally, Jeremiah once more faced his
destiny, bat entirely bereft, during
his short absence, of every spark of
courage or confidence. - - -

said Alvina, with ready comprehen

ears, as Melinda and Jerusha, un

Jeremiah; "what have I done?"

Melinda; you have excuses enough,

"For heaven's sake, ladies, whom
have I made love to?" cried Jeremiah
"To me ! and I thought you meant

Jeremiah made three frantic dives
for his hat, the door, and the street,
bringing up in a heap in bis arm
chair, with his housekeeper nearly
strangling him in trying to loosen his
cravat, and asking, "if he had a fit,
or wa3 crazy, or what ?"
"What ! i guess," he responded,
and an hour later wrote to inform
Aunt Sally of his misfortunes; and
beg her to come and take care of him
for awhile. Sbe came, bringing with
her a rosy-cheeked niece, at sight of
whom Jeremiah fled precipitately to
his room. Two days Aunt Sally
spent in railing unmercifully at her
unlucky nephew; and thea, fairly
starved out, he was obliged to come
down stairs and meet bis consin. Ar
5rst he was dreadfully shy; then
Susies's merry way captivated him
in spite of himself; and at last ac
counts he had found 'balm in Gillead,'
and the Misses Simpson were not
present at the wedding.

Chubb' Chimney.
We had quite an exciteing time
over at Chubb's the other day. His
chimney wo Id not draw, and he
sent for a n an to examine it. Tbe
man went out on the roof, and, tying
a broom to a rope, dropped it down
to see if the flue was clear. Mean
time Chubb got inside tie flue below.
and just as he did so the soft end of
the broom touched his head two or
three time3, as the man jerked it up
acd down. Chubb sprang out into
the room in a condition of frantic
excitement He was certain there
was a wild animal of some kind in
the chimney choking it up. He seiz
ed his gun and determined to kill it.
So, boluilg the muzzle ia the flue.
he pulled the trigger. While he was
getting tha gun, the man on the roof
completed his inestigations and sat
down on the top of the chimney to
rest himself and enjoy the scenery.
As soon as Chubbs gun went off, the
man knew about it, and did not wait
for further suggestions. He sudden
ly slid to the roof and from thence to
to the shed, where he relied about
ia great agony. He weighed one
pound more when they took him
home than be did when he came,
and the doctors cousider it doubtful

How to Dress Salad.
Ia tie spring of the year there h
nothing which comes upon the tablo
that is more pleasant, palatable and
refreshing, than salad properly dress
ed. We may add that, to our taste,
there are few thiDgs Jess inviting
when poorly dressed, or not dressed
atalL How often have our palaces
been dit-gusted and our feeling shock
ed by sitting at a table on which was
a beautiful dish of tender early let
tuce, but no'hing whatever to use
upon it save vinegar and (maybe)
sugar, or Itorrdxo referens!) a boua
tiful supply of bacon grease. Here
is a receipt for salad dressing which
we have often used and vre guaran
tee that it will augment the flavor
and promote the digestibility of the
salad. Take the yolks of three hard
boilded eggs, crurublo them with a
fork or spoon using silver, if you
have it add about a teaspoonful of
grauad mustard, a teaspoonful each
of sugar and salt, and mix all well
together. Then add in three por
tions a desert spoonful of pure olive
oil, and rub the whole to a uniform
smoothne;S. The addition of twice
the ri.uan.Ly of oil add to the flaor
with many, acd is certainly very
healthy. Next, give a dash ol Cay
enne pepper or pepper sauce; finally
add a gill of vinegar. With a little
experience, tact and patience, adding
to or lessening any of the ingredients
according to taste, any of our lady
readers will be enabled to furnish
their salads in such a style as will
delight the palate and call for a bless
ing upon the head of the housewife.
When brought to the table it will be
well to have the salad plentifully
sprinkled with slices of hard boiled

Ancient Ink a.
The ink used by ancient writers
were formed of lampblack, or tbe
black taken from bornt ivory, and
soot from furnaces and baths. Some
have supposed that the black liqio.
which the cuttle fish yields was fre
quently employed. One thing is cer
tain, that whatever were tbe compo
nent ingredients, irom tho blackness
and solidity in the most ancie n man
uscript from an inkstand found at
Herculaneum, in which the ink ap
pears as thick as oil, and fro n chem
ical analysis, the 'nL of antiquity was
much more opaque, as well as encaus
tic, than that which is used ia mod
ern timc3. loks of different colors
were much in vogue; red, purple,
blue, and gold and silve inks, were
the principal varieties. The red was
made from vermilion, cinnabar and
carmine; tbe purple from murex; one
kind of which, called the purple en
caustic, was appropriated to the ex
clusive use of the emperors. Gold
ink was much more p' pu'.ar among
tbe Greeks than amon- the Iiomana. j
During the middle or ilark ages, the I
manufacture both of ;c and silver
ink was an extensive and lucrative
braneh of trade, and the illuminated
mauuscripts whieh remain aro a strik
ing proof of tbe highest degree of
perfection to which tho art was car

it owed its origin, was, that of in

Imitation or Free Ions Stones.
There ia iu Paris a vast estaliab

pearls, diamonds, and precious stones

skill which modem ingeucity renders
possible, and those productions are
sent to the shops of all lands. Here
the whole process of transforming a
few grains of dirty, h rvy looking
sand inm diamonds of sparkling hue
is connant'y going on. The sand
thus caiplocd, and upon which tho!
whole art depends, is found in the!
forests of Fontaineblenu ; it appears
to possess some peculiar qualities cf

The coloring matter for imitating
emeralds, rubies, and sapphires is en

to high pcfeetion. Hundreds of op

on that basis with Miss Labor, tbe

during two years they lived affec
