Oh, Autumn Leaves!
My spirit grieves
That you soon should fade,
The beauty bright
That charms our sight
Ou the earth's cold breast he laid.
Oh, leaves so fair!
Your colors rare
A sweeter mem'ry bring,
Than all the flowers
Of summer hours.
Or all the buds of Spring.
Your haughty pride
Could not abide
The Summer's changeless green,
But you must wear
Those garments rare
Like mantles of a queen.
You rob the skies
Of sunset dyes
And morning's crimson flush;
And then by day
Your trophies gay
Bedeck each tree and bush.
The wrathful sky
Will lay your beauty low,
And o'er your forms
Sweep wide the drifting snow.
Then praise be still
To artist skill,
That spit: 2f wiu%. or storms,
Gives to our sight
In co!ors bright
The beauty of your forms.

I took it mechanically. What
did this mean?
She pouted, alb ! those cherry

impatiently on the floor.
L "You don't seem very glad to
see me," she said. pettishly.
I murmured that I was delight

Then she walked up and down
"How do you like my dress?"
she a1sked, revolving before me as
if' on a pivot.
I murmured something about
anglCie su perbness !
"I did intend," she said, halt
doubtingly, "to get a dress of' gray

she was talking aboutn o h t

bre'ath; but then I did ngt knowv
what she was saying.
"But," saidl she, "I bought the

"I admire your taste," I said
faintly, for 1 was fasst losing my
se'nses, though wondering as to
who and what she was.
"You're a dear good fellow !"
said she, rapturously ; "and I know
we'll get on famously together !"
So she intended to stay here! I
was~ getting' into very deep water.
"Now then," she continued,
" show me some place to put my
thin;s, and then y>u and I will
have a talk."
I mechanically pointed out a
small room opening out of a libra
r'v. She hurried in. I sat like a
statueo carved from adamant. Deep
Presently she returned, divested
of' little hat. pongec and kids.
She east a searching glance
arocund the library.
"Horrid dirtv!" she said. dis
* "About a year ago." I said.
She gav'e vent to a pretty little
"A vear' ? Shocking ! Oh, I
couldn't sit down in a room that
hasn't been cleaued for a year.
This must be put to rights."
She said this in a very deter
c-ed tone and then set to work.
She converted my linen coat into
an apron, tied a cunninglittle hand
kerchief over that pretty head7
and snatching up the fly-duster
dusted away valiantly-raised a
cloud of dust in which I sat gazing
on the vision. What did thi:
mean ? I consulted Moliere, my
standing authority, but Moliere
could give no explanation. Could
she be an angel sent to cast a ray
of light over my dismal path of
life ? Perhaps. But did angels
wear white Marseilles, and talk
about satteens and paniers ? Im.
possible! It must be a dream.
She suddenly paused, and held
out her arms and said
"Roll up my sleeves, please. I
can work better with them up."
I did roll the white sleeve up,
and then immediately scouted the
idea of its being a dream. Couldn't
dream of such arms, with a dimple
in each elbow.
Certainly not! They were real.
I did not think that a sculptor
would have been proud to have
them for a model, because I was
morally certain that any sculptor
would have been distracted at the
sight, and dropped his chisel, de
spairing of ever doing them jus
And then she dusted, and while
she dusted she sang. What a
voice! Don't mention Nilsson-I
won't hear of it.
And then she drew up a chair
and sat down be-ide me, having
first removed the handkerchief
and the improvised al)on. Then
she shook her curls and addressed
"My dear uncle, let us have a
Her uncle! If my heart- had
suddenly changed to a lump of
lead, it couldn't have sunk any
quicker than it did then.
"You know," she continued,
"that you wrote me a letter, say
ing that you considered it .est for
me to stay at the farm until you
wrote again. But, then, I didn't
want to stay ; I felt so lonely away
out there, hardly saw a new face

I have been there-for you know
you left me there when I was six
years old. Well, I thought I
would come to the city, so I took
the fifty dollars and bought this
suit. Mrs. Marsh picked it out
for me. You know she has been
in the city. so I came ; and you
are not angry, areIou ? Because
if you are, I'll go right back again,
uncle-indeed I will."
My feelings during this brief
speech had been very painful. I
gradually awoke to the fact that
it was all a blunder that the visit
of thi- angel was not intended for
me, and I felt very bitter over the
discovery ; but my duty was plain.
"Mv dear child," said I, humbly,
*swill you have the kindness to in
form me what your name is ?"
She opened her eyes, and then
"Why," she said, "surely you
cannot have forgotten mc? Little

"Little Bess ?" I repeated.
"Bessie Ludlow," she s a i d,
gravely, "your niece."
"No," said I, sadly; "not my
niece. I have no niece. There
has been some error-my name is

Now y-ou do remember me, don't
"Sorry to disappoint you, Miss
Ludlow," said I, calmly, "but I am
not your uncle."
"You saw the name of R. Floyd
on the door ; my name is Ro bert.'
"Then,'' said she. helplessly
"where is my uncle ?"'
I feit bound to confess my igno.

I trembled at this outburst.
"But., however," she said, laugh

to see me once-I suppose because
I am a poor relation."
Here she laughed, as if being a
poor relation was something fun
ny-which it is not.
Then we tried the second Mr.

"Uncle ?" said she.
"Niece," said he, "do as I bid

'Chicago Bound to be Ahead.'
TIORRORS OF THE BOSTON FIRE.
Another amusing diversion was
created by a tall, well-knit and ra

who stood gazing at the fir'e with
the deepest interest. Every nowv

ke noflagging, but without
taking his eves from the fire,
svhieb appeared to fascinate him.
As the flames made headway he
moved uneasily, shifted his weight
from one foot to the other, and
Ichewved with renewed animation.
Each new building that fell a prey
to the fire seemed to cause him to
experienee the most poignie 2t de
spair. His glance was not so
strongly marked by sympathy as
by anxiety. His sallow jaws seem
edI to elongate with every fresh
Ibuilding that went down. His
dress and appearance did not be
token a man, who had any enor
mous amount of' property at stake,
and the generai impression among
those who observed him was that
his alarm was caused by a pros
pect of losingr his situation. Pres
ently, when the flames seemed as
though they would engulph the
whole city, lie turned hik pale face
f'rom the flames, and addressing a
party by his side, exclaimed with
no less pride than disgust, "Psho!
it can't be done. The place ain't
big enough ! The Chicago fire
knocked this all to splinters. Yes
it did, I tell you. I was born
there, and I ought to know. I
tell you, sir, Chicago is bound to
be ahead on this fire yet," and he
Iwalked away, his face glowing1
with patriotic fervor and an ex
prsso of the most unbounded
contempt, overspreading his coun
tenance for the miserable failure
that was certain to attend all en
vious attemp)ts of Boston to rival
Chicago in the matter of' fires.

A large temnporary paviion was erected

The Case of Young Bangs.
. BY 'MAX ADELER.
When Mr. Bangs, the cider. re
turned from Europe he brought
with him from Geneva a minia
ture musical box, long and very
narrow, and altogether of hardly
greater dimensions, say, than a
large pocket-knife. The instru
ment played four cheerful little
tunes for the benefit of the Bangs
family, and they enjoyed it very
much. Young William Bangs en
joyed it to such an extent that,
Dne day just after the machine
had been wound up ready for ac
Lion, he got up sucking the end
>f it, and in a moment of inadver
,ence it slipped and he swallowed
the wlhole concern. The only im
miediate consequence of the acci
lent was that a harmonic stom
ich-ache was immediately organ
zed upon the interior of Wiliiam
Bangs, and he experienced a rest
essness which he well knew
xvould defy the soothing tenden
ics of peppermint and make a
'nockery of paregoric.
And William Banks kept his se
.ret in his own soul, and in his
tomach also, determined to hide
is misery from his father and to
pare the rod to the spoiled child
-spoiled at any rate as far as his
iigestive a)paratus was concerned.
But that evening at the supper
;abic W. Bangs had eaten but one
nouthful o. bread when strains ofi
,vild, mysterious music were sud
lenly wafted from under %he ta
>le. The entire family immiedi
tely groped around upon the
loor, tryiug to discover whence
,he sounds came, although Wil

le well knew that Mary Ann

nuch an insolvable problem as it

throat, the harmonium within
would give a fresh spurt and joy

Mocking Bird," or "Thou'lt Never

So they abandoned the attempt,
and were compelled to permit the
musical-box to remain within the
epulchral recesses of' the epigas
trium of' William Bangs. To say
that the unfortunate victim of tihe
disaster was madi'e miserable by
h~is condition, wvould l)e to express
in tihe feeblest manner the state
of his mind. The more music

would slip back agai.' to "Life on

te out that tune with variations~
and fragments of the scales until
William Bang's bi-other would
kick him out of bed in wild de
spair, and sit on him in vain effort
to subdue tile serenade, which,
however, invariably proceeded
with fresh vigor w~heni subjected
to unusual pr1essur'e.
And when William Bangs went
to chiuireb it frequently occurred
that, in thle ver-y midst of the
most sobonmi por:ion of the ser
mon, hue would f'eel a gentle dis
turbance under the lowest button
of' his jacket ; and presently,when
everything was hushed, the undi
gested engine would give a pre
liminar-y buzz. and then reel off
"TLiten to tha Mocking Bird"nand
"Thou'lt Never Cease to Love,"
and scales and exercises. until the
clergyman would stop and glare
at William over his spectacles,
and whisper to one of the dea.
cons. Then the sexton would
suddenly take up the aisle and
clutch the unhappy Mr. Bangs by
the collar, and z.eud down the
aisle again to the accompani
ment of "A Life on the Ocean
Wave and a Home on the Rolling
Deep," and then incarcerate Wil
liam in the upper portion of the
steeple until after church.
But the end came at last, and
the miserable offspring of the se
nior Bangs found peace. One day,
while be was sitting in the school
endeavoring to learn his Inultifi
cation table to the tune of "Home
Sweet Home," his gastric juice
triumphed. Something or other
in the music-box gave way all at
once, the springs were unrolled
with alarming force, aad William
Bangs, as lie felt the fragments of
the instrument hurled right and
left among his vitals, tumbled over
on the floor and expired.
At the post -mortem examination
they found several pieces of
"Home, Sweet Home" in his liver.
while one of his lungs was severe
ly torn by a fragment of "A Life
on the Ocean Wave.' Small par
ticles of' "Listen to the Mocking
Bird" were removed from his heart
and breast-bone, an<l three brass
pegs of -ThonIt Never Cease to
Love" were found firmly driven
into his fifth rib.

Grammar as Connected with
Kissing and Hugging.
The Hudson Register deals hu
merously with a question of gram
mlar as follows :
sA searcher after truth writes
to us, 'Which is gramrnatically
correct,' to say 'The house is
buidding. or 'The house is being
built;' 'The street is paving,' or
-Tihe street is being paved?' There
is a wide diversity of opinion up
on this subject, but we incline to
favor 'is being built,' for the fol
lowing reason : Suppose you wish
to express another kind of an
idea, would you say, for instance,
'Johnny is spanking,' or 'Johnny 1
is being spanked ?' The differ
ence to you may seem immaterial,
but it is a matter of considerable
importance to Johnny ; and it is
probable thatU if any choice were
given him. he would sud<lenly se
lect the for*mer alternative. You
say, again, that the 'missionary is
eating.' Certainly this expresses
a very different and much pleas
anter idea than the fornm: 'The
missionary is being caten.' and
the sensation is very different for
the missionary, too. We have
consulted several missionaries a
bout it. and they all seem to think
that the two things ai e somehow
not the same, no matter what the
"But it is to be confessed that
there are occasions when the dif
ference in the form. is not so
marked. You assert, we say,
that -Hannah is hugging,'-which,1
by the way, would be a very im
proper thing for Hannah to do ;
it would be positively scandalous,
indeed. Precisely a similar idea
is conveyed if you say, 'Hannah,
is being hugged,' because it is a
peculiarity of the act that it is
hardly ever one-sided ; there is no
selfishness about it. And it is the
same with kissing. 'Jane is kiss
ing'-and her mother ought to
know about it if she is-is just
exactly as if we say, 'Jane is be
ing kissed ;" and the sensation is
the same, ulthough none of the
grammars, by a singular inadver.
tance, mention the fact. It will
not be necessary, however, for
our correspondent to attempt to
prove these last mentioned facts
by practice. He must take our
word for them. Unless lie does
so, we shall answer no more ques
tions in syntax for him, or any
one else. Our duty is to conserve
the morals of the community, not
to start the people to playing pri

TuE HABIT OF GoOD WALKING.
-Very few people ever learn to
walk properly. Men and women.
who are particular cuonrli about
their dress, pay no attention to
thbeir car-riagre andl gait, but sham
ble, trot or waddle along without
much apparent regar-d for the ap
pearance they make. One of the
secr-ets of good walking is to be
able to balance the body easily,
first on one foot, and then on the
other. When the soldier has
learned to stand steadily on one
foot, he can then walk without
swaying, and1 pr-eserve that stead
iness in marching which is always
a mark of wvell-drillcd troops. So,
if civilians wish to walk as well as
soldiers. they must, like them,
fm-st learn scmething of the mys
teries of balancing. But it is not
an easy thing to stand steady on
a narrow sole with a small heel,
and.this is just the difficulty wvith
the walking of fashionable people.
The san daled feet of those ancient
beauties, whose forms have come
dlown to be preserved in marble,
are beautiful in their uni-estrained
natraralness, and vei-y unlike
those of modeirn belles, or beaux
either, for- that matter. With
low heels and bronad soles, it is
not difficult to balance the body,
wvhile by drnawing in the chin the
shoulders are naturally thrown
back, the lungs given full oppor
tunity to expand, and the head
carried ei-ect. Fashionable boots
and high heels must be discarded,
or it useless to make the experi
mient of learning to walk well.
