'Tis the saddest?'tis tho sweetest,
?Tis the loYellcflt of the year ;
The time of summer's last sad Bmilc,
Ere she's laid upon her bier.
Me thought she had departed,
With all her radiance wild ;
Gono, stranger lands to gladden
With her balmy airs and mild.
Out no ! ah, at ill e\\Q tarrlcth, J j
Sho smileth once again;
And from the forests echocth
A low, sad, mournful strain
Sweet songs of rich, glad melody,
Hath she been singing long; :
And now, with strangely warning tone,
She chants her own death-song.
Gray hill, and bleuk, wild mountain,
Woodland, and glen and vale;
Hcsoundeth with the requiem,
The solemn, dirge like wail.
All gcorgcoua in her winding-sheet.
Green golden-hued and red;
O'er which a shadowy, dimness reigns,
As o'er the features of the dead.
Her voice Ilka the seer's, now sounduth
In her sorrowful parting lay ;
And mcthinks it loudly spcakcth,
Of. the comiug ,of decay. i:4
It tells that the lovely fadeth, '
That the beautiful lasts not long:
Such to mo the burden secmeth,
Of the dying summer's song.
To Husbands.
The' edict is spoken,
And skirts shall no more,
Of daughters and wives swocp
Society's floor.
Hut, husbands, rejoicing
Too soon would be wrong;
If the dresses aro short,
Still your bills will be long.

Miss. AyrtoH's Ride.
MYes, I hate ltiui 1" said Kato Ayrton, the
hot crimson flushing her check, and the light
leaped to hor dark oyc?"I hate hitu with tny
whole soul 1"
Sho flung down a spray of purple hclitropc
od tho dressing table, as it' it had done her
some deadly injury, and glanced at it a mo
ment as it' the insensible thing could bo made
to understand how sho felt toward it.
Then she looked in the glass, which is a very
natural thing for a woman to do under all cir
It was a beautiful face that she saw there?
and if sho had not been in such an ill humor
sho would have smiled with pleasure at the re
flection. A clear brunette complexion lighted
up with great dark eyes, and shaded by heavy
bands of raven hair, broakiog over tho low
broad forehead into mazes and ripples which
wore novcr made by crimping pins or curling
Then Kato eat down in an easy chair?
picked up the heilitropo and pulled it vindic
tively to pieces.
'?To think that he should refuse my request,
aud put me off with this!" said she, looking
savagely at tho now generally dilapidated blos
soms?"to thiuk of it! and worso than all
that ho should give the flower I asked for, to
that dumpling-faced Jennie Raring ! Yes, I
hate him!"
Now Jennie Baring was uot dumpling-faced
by any means, she was a very pretty, sparkling
eyed blonde, and half tho young men in town
were in lovo with her.
Kate looked arouud spitefully after having
thus relieved herself?and thou she put her
head down on the tublo aud began to cry.
Well, I supposo by this time you want to
know who it was that Kate hated, and what ho
had done to deserve her hatred. I can tell
you in a very few words.
Oilbcrt Argcnson was a man of thirty or
thereabout, who hud recently come to Sprueo
ville, and entered upon tho practice of medi
Kato Ayrton was the bollo of Spruceville,
and had been accuHtomed to seo overy ono bend
boforo her shrino. Dr. Argenson docfined to
bend. He was the first man who had uot been
vanquished at once, and on tho principle that
as all, most desire those things out of and be
yond our reach?his admiration was what
Kate coveted more than anything else.
lie was polite and courteous, always to her,
bot never anything more.
The night on which Kate is toought before
the render, there had 'Keen a party at the. house
of Mrs. Cassel', and Kate and Dr. Argenson
were both present.
Tho Doctor had a bunch-of-jWfld violets and
i a spray of hclitrope in hia button hole. Kate
was fond of wild violets, and besides she want
ed to tarry her power over" the Doctor: . 80
she admired tho violets, and asked him to give
them to I r. ?
; lie Smiled gravely.
!'I atn very sorry, to refuse a lady's request,"
he replied, "but I brought these for Miss Bar
ing. You know that she came from, tbo coun
try?that she still is fondly attached to it, and
I thought those forest flowers would pleasant
ly remind her of old home. Accept the holli
trope, if you please," and he laitf' the purple
fragrant thing in her ban*).
If Kate had obeyed tho impulse of her
heart, sbo would have flung down the flower
and tratnpted on it, but you know it is never
just the thing to act as you feel.
So she thanked him very sweetly. Put the
hellitrope away in her boquct, and fell to hat
ing him with her soul.
After that, whenever jhe met Dr. Argenson.
she was cold and formal, and he was fully her
equal in that respect. In fact they acted as
much like two spoiled children as grown peo
pie ever do.
A month afterward it was time to go the
country, and Mrs. Cassell went up to Rose
lawn?lier country seat on Blue River.
Mrs. Cassell was a leader of society, and
very foud of company, 30 as soon as she was
established at Roselawn, she scut invitations to
half a score of friends to come up and spend
July with her.
Everybody knew what a charming hostess
Mrs. Cassell was, and of course her invitations
were all accepted.
Dr. Argenson, M iss Baring and Kate Ayr
tou were of the party.
Roselawn was delightful. A large roomy
house, with wide, shady poiticoes, and viuc
wreathed piazzas?just the' very situation for
lovers?and then there were immense shade
trees and vine harbors, und winding drives and
walks?to say nothing of the charming coun
try roads all round?the cool forests, the river
which Trout Brook afforded.
Kate said to herself, when she learned that
'Argenson was to be of the party, that if she had
known it before she would not have gone her
self?but still she went.
Argenson was very attentive to Miss Bar
ing. Toward Kate he was kiud and polite, be
cause he was a thorough gentleman, and gentle
men never take any oi cnae at a lady's coolness,
you know.
The Roselawn party were extremely gay,
and enjoyed themselves wonderfully. And
for real enjoyment, commend us to the month
of June or July-?a large old country house
and card: blanche to do as we choose?casting
etiquette aside, and substituting common seuae
in its place.
Miss Ayrton was appropriated to Guy Hath
court, a young.gent lemau of wealth and talent
who resided in the neighborhood.
So it went on for a couple of weeks, and
Kate grew colder aud colder towurd the Doctor,
and he took it as coolly as if every beautiful
woman in the world was accustomed to change
herself into an icicle at his approach.
One delightful evening of stars and moon
light, and south winds, they went boating ou
tho river. A vory . little accident occurred.
The plank on which Miss Baring was about
leaving the boat, tilted, and the young lady
was precipitated into the water.
Every one screamed, and Dr. Argenson
pluugcd in after her and brought her to tho
shore?wrapped hor in his great cloak aud
kopt hia arm round her all the way to Rose
And Kate went to bed that night angry
with everybody, and horsclf particularly.
Shu did not sleep all night, and rose in tho
morning unrcfreshed, and exceedingly anxious
to do something desperate.
We all, at somo timo or othor, havo got into
that frame of mind when we feel as if fate
were closing round us, and that tho only relief
for the dull, blinding ache, caused by the pres
sure of circumstances, would be found in doing
something desperate.
Of course, Kato did not put any of this into
words?into definite thoughts even, but she
felt it, nevertheless.
She wout down to breakfast, with a hot flush
on her face, and thought sbo would take a turn
or two up nud down the piazza to cool the fev
er in her blood.
Going out there for that purpore, she oh
countered Dr. ArgonBon. Ho was lcoking at
tho horses, as Jack, the groom, was lending
thorn down to tho spring to water.
He bade her good morning, and called her
attcution to a fiery-eyed, coal black marc, that
was cantering past all the other animals.
"A tine horse, Miss Ayrton,'; he said admir
ingly. "It is a pit ty sho cannot bo subdued
sufficiently to answer tho purpose for which
she was .purchased."
flj And what was tbat, pray ?" inquired Kate.
a'Sho was selected for Miss Cussell. But
lief ?psrits are so high that no lady would ever
daro mount her."
"indeed, I think I will ride her atVefofcak
mit^laid K?l?itidiffeVently: > ****
''Certainly not," said Argcnson, decidedly,
"it Would be jU& next thing to sclf-destruc
US*onsense I I am not afraid of a horse, I
believe. And think I can manage one tolera
bly well-_1??' t
??i do hut dispute your skill, Miss Ayrton,
but'i do claim the right to prevent you from
putjting yourself in peril.
Rut, before hu had finished the sentence,
Kate had sauntered off, and directly Argensoh
wo lit in to find her at the breakfast table
flushed and animated.
Kate knew well enough that Mrs. Casscll
would hot permit her to ride Juno, if she asked
her j fo she decided not to ask her. She was
good friends with Jack, for Jack liked any one
who liked horses, and Kato had a great affec
tion for all animals.
So. after breakfast, while the others were
planning the day's programme, Kate put ou
her riding habit, and stolo stealthily to the
Jack'was astounded at her request. His
eyes grew big and round with wonder, he ask
ed her over again what sho said, in order to
fciakc sure that he had heard aright.
'Twant Juno saddled !" said she, impera
tively "I am going to ride her."
"Itldade, mum,'' said Jack, "an axing ycr
pardittg for argufying wid ye, but there never
was a female woman on the crater's back in
the world I"
"Hut there will bo a femalo woman on her
back before she's nn hour older," said Kate.
?Tut on tho saddle, Jack."
''But tho mistress '11 be as mad aB-"
"Send Mrs. Cassel) to mc. I'll settle with
"Alt,, maybe ye will ! But ye'11 be dead if J
ye ride Jo no, and, then how the divil can ye
sittle it ?"
"Oh; Mrs. CamoII w?U forgive mo doadl"
lant'Wl Kate, and sliuped ajlolhir into tho
quicken your motions any."
The man still demurred inwardly, but the
sight of the crisp ucw dollar bill was too much
for his scruples, and he led Juno out to be
saddled. ' ?
A fiery-eye, viscions looking crcaturo sho
was, too; aud it was all that Jaek could do
to hold her while Miss Ayrton got into her
She took the bridle, bowed mockingly at
Jack, and dashed off.
Do you think the girl was crary ? I do uot,
she only wanted, as I said before, to do some
thing desperate. She could not conquer Gil
bert Argcnson, porhaps she might conquer
black Juuo, which would be some satisfaction.
For the first mile or two of tho way, Juuo,
did not seem to clearly understand tho nspect
of affairs. Sho hud uot been saddled for
months, aud it was quite a task on her memo
ry to remember if ever anything of the kind
had occurred in her equine experience.
So, while she wus considering the matter,
she paced along gingerly, with her neck
bowed, aud her ears pricked forward, evident
ly trying hard to sec something at which she
might make an excuse for being frightened.
Kate got out of patience with the slow gate,
and gave the mare a cut of the whip.
The effect was even more than tho girl had
expected. Juno bounded forward like a wild
creature, seized the bit in her teeth, and
dashed down the steep hill just before her like
I nil arrow,
Kate Was. a good equestrian, and though
her check blanched, as she saw tho raviuo and
tho rocky bed of a stream just ahead, she
brought all her strength to bear upon the
the curb and did not for a moment loose her
prcscucu of mind.
Just before .Juno's feet struck the loose
plunks of the bridge which spanned the
stream, the strain excited by horse and rider
on the bridle, snapped one of tho buckles, and
Juuo had it all her own way.
Kate remembered that the mare leaped, as
it were, into tho air; that sho folt dizzy, and
remarked that she seemed to fall through
interminable space, that she experienced a
great shock, and then all was blank.
Sho came to herself by-and-by, feeling
strangely peaceful and content. She did not
know where she was. She only knew that
she was vory comfortable aud happy. By-and
by it occurred to her that she had better open
her eyes and take an observation.
And, when she did so, sho saw that sho was
in Dr. A igen son's arms, with her head lying
ou his breast, and his handsome face vory
suspiciously near her own.
An angry flush rose to her cheek, and sho
mado a quick movement to escape from him,
but he hold her fast.
"Be qa,'et, Kate," he said gently-?"be
quiet wncre yoii arc. It fa your rightful
*a! tt ? i i - -. ; - ?: r..
place, for you know Katio, that I loye you,
and tl:at you lovo me.'*
It was A; very;, boldl assertion for Dr. Ar
genson to make,, and Kate was going to make
some indignant reply but he stopped the words
on her lips with kisses. Tho very best way in
the world to stop any pretty girl from scold
ing you.
j .Then Kate kept quiet,. and learned that
Dr. Argenson had fallen in love with her at
tho . very first, but had boon held.back by the
fear that she would only flirt with him, as
she had with others.
And theo, after a while, when he had be
gun to understand that hers was a noble na
ture, she had been so cold that he cold not
approach her. And if it had not been for
Juno's delightful conduct?Argenson said-?he
never should have known how ,woll his Kate
loved him.
For he had been close behind her when
she was thrown, and he was positive that she
cried out;
"Gilbertl Oh, Gilbert!"
But Kate declared that she did not ory out
at all, and they had quito a delicious little
dispute over it, which ended as all lovers'
disputes usually do.
What of Miss Baring? Why, Kate thought
she was a lovely little thing when Gilbert
told her that she was his brotbers's betrothed
wifel And, after that, Kate and Miss Baring
were hand and glove. And early in the au
tumn there was a graud ceremony at St.
John's Church in Sprnceville, and that same
ceremony made Jennie Baring and Kate
Ayrton sisters.
