I Ml in the fonder
When the flowers
had doomed awhile,
*1 am weary of this wild beauty,
And I long for the Summer's smile.
The glorious passionate Summer—
A ll glowing with ferrent heat,
'When the winds corn© ap from the southland
* And the days are long and sweet.' '
The Summer slept on the hill tops—
The south-wind wailed and sighed,
The robins' song grew drowsy,
And the roses bloomed and died ;
And then I thought of the Autumn,
And longed for the dream v days
When the trees should don their purple,
And the hill-tops hide in hare.
The Autumn «une in her grandeur—
The grass grew gold and
And splendor lay in the forest,
And the leaves came drifting down.
And then I longed for the Winter—
The Winter, cold and pale,
And my restless heart grew weary,
And the Autumn's charms grew stale.
And now in the heart of winter,
I ftigh Tor the Spring again ;
And think in wild impatience
Of the flowers ou hill and plain
And ^et, ere the Spring has vanished,
My heart will tire 1 know,
And the jewel content —I seek for,
Will never be mine below.
A Clever Joke.
A gentleman played off a rieb joke on
bis better-half the other day. Being some
what of an epicure, he took it into his head
that he should like to have a first-rate din
ner. So he addressed her a note, politely
informing her that a gentleman of her ac
quaintance—an old and true friend—wonld
diue with her that day. As Boon as she
received it, all bands went to work to get
everything in order. Precisely at twelve
o'clock she was prepared to receive her
guest. The house was.as clean as a new
pin—at sumptuous dinner wus on the table,
and she was arrayed iu her best attire. A
gentle knock was heard, and she started
with a palpitating heart to the door. She
thought it must be an old friend, perhaps
a brother, from the place whence they once
moved. On opening the door she saw her
husband, with smiling countenance.
'•Why, my dear," said she, in an an
xious touc, "where is the gentleman of
whom you spoke in vour note ?"
■''Why,*' replied the husband, compla
cently, '-here lie is."
"You said a gentleman of my acquain
tance—an old and true friend—would dine
with us to day."
"Well," said he, good-humoredly,
I not a gentleman of your acquaiutance,
an old and true friend ?"
"O!" she cried, distressingly, "is there
nobody bat you ?"
"Well, I declare this is too bad
the wife iu an angry tone.
The husband laughed immoderately, but
finally husband and wife sat down cosily
togetb er, and for once lie had a good din
ner without having company.
"Wiiy tiies£ Odd Fashions?— Men flat
ter themselves that ladies dress to please
them. They are utterly mistaken. La
dies know very well that men are not
picked with the present style of costume
— paniers iu the street und trains in the

ffmned gill spoil the symmetry of her fi
e ure by huge everescuces bulged out with
uckram ; uor do they like to see a ladv
•nveloped in a mass of dry goods so iin
snensc that she requires a whole room to
turn in. They do not like the largo horse
hair things which ladies wear under their
hair, nor the funny little boots with heels
«.the middle of the sole. Least of all do
tWby like the fashionable style of head
dress, which is a pile of flowers, ribbons,
and feathers, that towers aloft, in the air
to a great height. Every man laughs at
these follies, and ladies know it well. But
If they do not dress to please men, what
do they dress for? A wicked lady of
acquaintance says, they dress to give pain
