Swift swtUlowa, sUy, we oanuot spare you yet No chilly breath lnuj struck you with -alarm ; -Why should you lill our souls with vague regret In these sweet tlays of golden rest and calm? Let us awhile travel and change tor get. Why should you roam ! The gardens are aglow With brighter colors than they wore in June, The tall, white liilieft make a queer ly show. The. gadding vine with many a wild festoon Still hides your not ; we cannot let you go. Why should you leave U"? Summers are so brief, It seems but one bright week, or scarce ly more. Since every day showed some new tree in leaf. Pleasant it was from window and from door To hail, in your glad coming, Spring's relict To sl.md w ithin the gateway of the year, As at the entrance of an unknown wood, Hearing the songs of unseen birds so near. It seemed we might have caught them where they stood False cuckoo notes of joy that dUap-jK-ar ! Swallows ye brought upc-n jour glossy wings A humlred visions Irom beyond the sea; Though your hist nest was mid the tombs ol kings. Our thatch from ailen touch U not less free Thau those grand ruins round which silence clings. Say, do ye tear ye may not see again The largc-browed Sphynx traziug with human eyes Through countless centuries across the plain Of arid sands, beneath the shadeless skies. Where C'arnac's sculptured glories yet remain ? Is there in Loxor, neath a lotus flower. Carved when the world was young, a hiding place Dear to you never moistened by a show er Since first a bold adventurer of your race Chose if, and made it your a ncestrtil tower? Xow, if you must go, quickly take fare well. For many a dim eye that has watched you play Shall lill with tears, taking yonr flight for knell Of life and season, ebbinr; both away In that long struggle words are weak to tell. Uare are the happy f.elds ; on every side The plow already has ifs work begun ; Part, swallows, fly in peace sure is our guide Cross seas and seek the countries ot the sun But come again to us wbate'er be tide. S. Germtti. WHOSE H'AKTHE Ull LI T KIlis TreroajDelaid his fork down witb a gesture half of impatience, half of discouragement, and a frown that bad do business on the forebead of a six montbrt' married man, and tbe husband of tbe prettiest of wo men corrugated bis handsome white forebead. "You seem to have not the slight est appreciation of affairs, Edie. I have explained time and time again that I m living up to mv ioconie uot saving a penny aud jet jou still pernist ia demandicg money for every trifle tbat takes jour fancj." EllitkTremavne spoke more decisive ly than EtTie bad ever beard bim, ami she uitulaliy rowed him horribly cross, aod parted ber red lips aod leaDed back in ber chair with a very aggrieved look on her lovely face. And yet it was lovely. Mr. Tremajoe thought so tbat same moment as be looked at the delicate pink-and-snow complexion, and tbe large dark blue eyes that bad played such mad havoc witb his heart a year ago at tbe full, exquis ite lips tbat bad only seemed made for smiles and kisses then, tbat now were rapidly coDsnmating their tack of discovering tbo clay feet of bis idol .bat now were parting to utter words be knew were coming, and tha did come. "You are just as mean and cross as jou can be ! Wbat's tbe use of living at all if jou can t have wbat jou want if von can't have things like other people ? 1 tell jou I do think jou might let me have some monej this morning; I need it most awful ly." Her blue eyes certainly looked pleading enough to give entire cre dence to ber assertions. "I am almost tempted to say that cannot be true, Effie, tince it was on ly a week ago to-day I banded yon twenty-five pounds a sum amplv sufficient for even the most inexperi enced financier on which to keep a fauiilv of two." Darker frowns were gathering on Tremayne's forehead, but Eflie an swered with a sneer: 'Tweotv Gve pounds! You speak as if it were a fortune! I tell oc, Ellis, I must have things like like other people, liow on earth do you suppose I feel ben Mrs. Coddington or Mies Dellburn calls for me to drive. weanug tbeir elegant carriage cos tumes, and I in tbe same dress I ap pear in io tbe street or at church ?" Treinaj ne smiled contemptuously. "So You hope to rival tbe wife ot a millionaire and the only daughter of a weahbj banker, do jou? joo, tbe ife of a cashier at H ingneld .V Sons, on &even hundred a jear? Ef fie, have nothing to do witb women bo are, unconsciously, perhaps. sowing seeds of discontentment and extravagance in jour heart" "I am neither discontented nor ex travagant. Ellis joa shall not ear so. liut 1 must bare some monej to get a new soil Oh, Ellis such a bearenlj shade of prune, and you know I can wear so well one particu lar shade. Honestly, I haven't ft JL T A IUj I R IT-E D , 18 2 PA., WEDNESDAY, dress to wear to Mrs. Lamar's recep tion." Ellis ate his eggs with very little show of satisfaction,! and his silence, while better thongbUi were rushing through bis mind, was taken by Kftic as a sign of consent, j She was not slow in pressing her advantage "It won't cost ovef; twentj pounds, Ellis verj reasonable? indeed, for I shall make it nearlj all myself, and I'm sure jou cant be displeased at that. Then say 'jes,' won't you El lis dear ?" A settled, white look came around bis handsome month.: "if you care more for show aod fine clothes than for mj respect and con sciousness tbat you are mj economic al, and prudent wife wo is helping her husband save instead of almost goading him into debt, jou can have the money." ' Her eJes flashed as delightedly as a child'8 ver DeW t0T- na aecompli.shed ber desire, aud bis cold yet tone0'0' words-had fallen un heeded before that "You can haetbe money." She sprung from her chair behind tbe coffee urn, and threw her arms around his neck, kissing his hand sorre worried forehead. "You darling! I knew you would not say 'no,' for all you read me snch a lecture on econemy.j Really. Ellis, when vou see Low lovelr I shall look in my new silk, you will not prude the money, will yon? You like to soe roe look as pretty as I used before we were married, don't vou ? And you'r not angry dear ? You do love me !" f Her sweet, girlish face all alight with enthusiasm, her blue eyes danc ing such honest delieht. her smooth chpek layinc aeainst his. and her dainty little hand strokinsr bis whisk ers of course Ellis laid down his napkin and pushed hack from the ta ble and kisspd her. She was bis wife sweet, pretty, and delicate as a mountain pink, and he loved her loved ber dearly, truly, as in the davs when he bad won her, thinking what a rare Bow er she wan. He loved her. and wta willing, yes anxious to increase her happiness by every honest means in l is power cn ly Effie was extravagant and unreas onable in ber demand for dress and style that were bevond the capabili ties of the well salaried man that he was. So now he kissed her tenderly, and then took out bis purse and laid a bank bote on the tablecloth. "There's your new silk, dear may yon enjoy it." - His forbidding manner bad so en tirely disappeared, that J-: die's heart was encouraged to undrtake a '(.oth er pet plan. So ' as "'she demurely folded the note away in her pretty little crimson Russia pocketbook, she began so quietly tbat Ellis was cap tured by storm: "I was wondering if it would not be a good plan if we shut up tbe bouse for August, dear, and went somewhere. It will do you so niueb good, I'm sure, and there will be no expenses here while we're away. Can't we go to Hastings?" She opened tbe battery very sud denly, almost staggering Tremayne. "Oh, Effie no. It would involve a larger expense, ten times, than it costs at borne."

The latter title being one not ordinarily understood to belong to the Father of His Country, an old letter has been found from G. W. I'arke Custis, dated in loT, which explains how General Washington came by tbe American Marshal of France, writes Mr. Cus tis, is simplv this: "When, in 1731, Colonel Laurene went to France as special embassador, a difficulty arose between him and the French Minis try as to tbe command of the com bined armies in America. Our heroic Laurens said : "Our Chief must command ; it is our cause, and the battle is on our soil." "C'est impossible," exclaimed the Frenchman ; "by the etiquette of tbe French service the Count de Rochambeau being an old lieutenant general, can only be commanded by the King in person or a Marechal de France.'' "Then, exclaimed Laurens, "make our Washington a Marechal de France, and the difficulty is at an end. It was done. A friend of mine beard Washington spoken of as Monsieur le Marechel at tbe siege of lorktown. Onr beloved Washington never coveted or desired rank or title; but it is beyond a doubt that, from tbe force of circumstance jnst related, (he rar.k and title of Marechel de France was conferred upon tbe Ge eral-in-Chief of the com bleed armies of America and France." t rack Hkwto of Hraksk A Keokuk darkey was caught in the act of robbing a deck passenger on tbe Rob Roy, early Saturday morning.

The effect of removing the litter of a mature forest is really far greater than would result from the mere re moval of so many pounds of nitrogen phosphoric acid and potash. When the litter is allowed to accumulate from year to year, and to undergo its natural slow decomposition, the re sult is tbe formation of a forest soil exceedingly rich in bumua ; the for mation of sjch a soil is often of price less) value to the forrester. A rough, sterile, rocky soil becomes, when penetrated with hurous, capable of retaining water, and tbus able to withstand drought. By the action of humus the mineral plant food which tbe soil contains is also brought into a more soluablo and available form ; while tbe greatly increased porosity of the soil protects all soluable plant focd from beiDg washed out by heavy rains, a calamity to which the origin al rocky soil was constantly liable. So great is the importance of humus, tbat in many forest soils its presence is the one ameliorating principle which renders cultivation possible. Especially niut this be the case en the hillsides so frequently devoted to the growth cf timber. Nor in this case are tbe advantages of the deep humus soil confined to tbe trees growing upoa it Owing to the enormous power of retaining water possessed by a spongy vegetable soil, the adjacent valleys are effectually protected against disastrous floods. Storm water is retained or delayed, is stored up in tbe forest soil for use in summer drought, instead of de scending in violent streams, tearing up the soil and spreading havoc all around. The careful maintenance of forests upon hillsides becomes in this view a question which is in many eas es of national importance. To produce in its fullest tent the bumus covering of tbe soil it is nec essary that tbe forest should be plant ed sufficiently close ; in open spaces admitting light and air the bumua will rapidly oxidize and disappear. For tbe same reason care should be taken that planting immediately fol lows tbe felling of limber ; the ground as far as possible, should never be suffered to lie open and uncovered.
