The Dead Snuuncr.
Ah, how abe came and Went! ?o stealthily
That ono can make the short-lived periods
EverTwifch their wealth o! blooms, and
songs of birds,
No other than a dream.
And yot tho summer has withhold no gift,
Buch as God annually sends. The grate?
ful Bhowor, j'" - . ,.?_.,
The glorious sunshine, and tho healthful
Have blessed each passing hnnr.
The seed-time and its eli cerf ul promises
Of rich reward for labor have boen given,
"frith luscious fruits and flowers, like cen?
With the sweet breath of Heaven.
Even now, while wrapped ba royal drapery,
Lifeless upon her bier tho summer Hos,
Tho hills, aa if unconscious of her fate,
Still wear their rich green dyes.
80 quietly ehe left us, and so fair
The blushing blossoms looked that last
We did not doom that anywhere on earth
So soon sho wonld bb missed.
JBnn now the sun-light falls with paler
And sadder looks upon tho fonder grass,
And winds, ah, me! tho plaintive, wander
Chant dirges as they passl
While tho lone cricket by my cottage door,
All tendency to lighter moods restraining.
Breaks tho deep stillness of this autumnal
With rythmlcal complaining. .
?Somewhere a snmmor waits that in duo
Will come and amilo upon this dead ono s
And open into bloom the folded buds
Whioh spring has in her keeping.
. And thoso who wait and watch will greet
. Each Joyous signal of her queenly coming,
And nature will break out in songs again,
8 weet as the brooklet's humming.
Thus one by one the hurrying soasons pass,
Bach cycle narrower to our human seem?
Til!, glancing backward, lol the brief years
Liko some delusivo dreaming.
Only the good and true, of all our aots,
Iiike timid stars from out tho darkness
-Strike their pare lights along tho slopo of j
Life's real worth revealing.
BT BAXTH HUMPHREYS.
Yon cnn read npon our sign
"Smith Brothers." "Smith Bro?
thers" heads our advertisements. We
have always been "Smith Brothers"
at heart, except for one brief space.
We are ia tho wholesale dry goods
line, as our father was before us
When he died he left ns his store and
his business, and "Smith Brothers"
took the place of the old sign
We were not young when our father
departed this life. I, Absalom, was
thirty-five, and my brother Abi jab
-vas thirty-three. Oar mother died
when we were ohildren, and her last
charge, as they say in novels, was
that we should love each other, and
try to console father. We can re
member her very distinctly, both of
ns. She was a fair little worn au,
with a pale face and gentle eyes, of a
.ort of a brownish blue. Her voice
was very sweet and low, and she
loved us as no one will ever love us
again. To this day I can recall her
cooing, murmurous intonations, as
she called us by a mother's thousand
endearing names; the warm clasp of
her soft arms; the sweetness of her
smiles; the delicacy of her beanty,
80 can Abijah. It is not strange
that after her death, as our lives ex
?anded from boyhood toward man
hood, our mother, as we remember
her, became to onr dreaming fancies
the type of all that was lovely in
woman. The fnture wife, of whom
'We both dreamed, was a little, fair
-creature, with brownish bluo eyes
.weet voice aud tender smile. We
used to talk about her freely with
each other, and tho one who found
his mate first was to marry and tako
his brother to live with him.
It was a queer life whioh we led
all through our boyhood and young
manhood. The servants who had
lived with us at my father's death
two staid, church-going spinsters, all
lineB and angles, and a gray-haired
.ervin gm an, who looked like the very
incarnation of the family respectabil?
ity. Besides these we bad no house?
keeper. My father did not like a
stranger about the house, and him?
self bestowed upon the domestic
affairs the slight amount of supervi?
sion necessary, until I bpcime old
enough to relieve him. We went to
school till we were shy boys, nud,
.besides each other, made no intimate
When we wero sixteen, our father
took us into his store. This pleased
ns vastly better than a longer school
life. We were contemplative, rather
than communicative, and we used to
like to sit, when the duy's work was
over, and look from an upper win?
dow down the harbor and watch tho
.hips ooming homo, bearing to tem?
perate New England, oriential musks
.nd spices and essences; shawls and
robes wronght with many a strauge
Eastern device-hints of acacias and
Indian palms and dusky women rov?
ing under them. I speak foi us
both; oar tastes were as one taste;
what one liked, tho other liked also.
We used to assooiato the gentle wo?
man of our dreams with all our
oriental fancies. She should wear
tho bright-hued silks; fold her light
figaro in the quaint, rieh shawls; hour
?he odor of tua spices in her soft hair
.and the folds of her garments.
But.when my fathor died and,we
?ot along into our thirties, wo were
no nearer the dream wifo than in our
boyhood. Wo saw no company save
the people we mob in our business.
Year in nod year out, no female foot?
steps lighter or quicker than Jane's
ana Hopsibah's ? ever .wandered np
and down the stairs, in and out of the
rooms of our spacious, old-fashioned
house. We dreamed of the future
still, with the shy tenderness of our
boyhood. We did not at all realize
that wo were growing old, growing
away from the possibilities of youth
and beauty and tenderness. Our life
had boen so quiet, so barren of
events, that it seemed short urcon
soious of tho hostages time was leav?
ing with us in tho8hape of gray hairs
It was a sudden shook, rather thau
a bitter grief, when our father died.
His heart had been buried, twenty
five years ago, in the grave of our
-mother, and, since that time, though
kind and just to ali, thero had been
no sun to melt for bim tho ice of
life's long winter. Wo lovo him.
Thero was a saddening sense of loss
and absence when we looked at his
vacant chair at homo, or iu his count?
ing-room, when we saw "Smith Bro?
thers" ou tho sign, in piaco of the
honored name which had hung there
for forty years, but thero was none
of the anguish of desolation which
rends tho heart when ono is takon
whom we loved, who loved us.
"It would not have been right tc
marry while father lived," I Baid to
Abijah, ono evening, as we sat bv
the library fire. "It would have
pained him to bring a wife home
whore mother died. But now-"
"Yes, I think it is time now, bro?
ther Absalom; but of courso wo must
wait till our year of mourning ii
Oar eyes mot each other, and w<
smiled. Wo made no confession ir
words, but tho truth came homo tc
us both that we had lived so long ou
of the world, it would bo a work ol
more magnitude than wo had real
ized, to go into society and choos<
tho household angel we both coveted
And BO it went on foranotheryear
tho houso quietand silent ns ever; th?
old servants; and "Smith Brothers'
growing old 'together. Our fathe
had been dead something over i
twelve-month, when thero carno to u
a letter superscribed in a femal
hand. It was a very unusual event
and wo speculated a little os to it
possible origiu before we opened it
It proved to be from a lady of whon
wo had often heard us our mother'
most intimate friend. This was wha
it said :
"I write to you, gentlemen, a
surely Mary Chelmsford may foe
privileged to write to the children o
Margaret Smith. Your mother am
I loved each other with a tonderncs
deeper than most sisters know. Al
that one woman could have done o
ventured for another Bho would hav
done for mo, or I for her. Since Bh
died I have seen neither of you, bu
I remember the promise of your boy
hood. Yon, Absalom, badi your mc
thor's smile, and you, Abijah, you
mother's kindly eyes. I will believ
that you both inherit your mother'
tender heart. At any rato, this is m
only hope. Under heaven, I hav
nowhere else to turn. I am dying i
a strange place, of slow desline, goin
to join my husband. I have no nea
friends or kindred to look to-onl
you. I am not harassed by an
anxieties for myself. My soul is c
rest, for I know in whom I have b(
lieved. I have property enough t
make my last days comfortabli
and to leave a provision for my on]
child, my daughter Margaret, wh
was named for your mother. It is i
her behalf that I appeal to you. SL

not married till late in life, son:
years after your mother died. SI
has a gentle, loving nature, whicl
save at her father's death, bas nev
yet been subjected to any of tl
harsh discipline of life. It is fro
this that I beg you to save her. SI
will not suffer from any bodily want
but do not let her soul starve. DOD
let her feel herself friendless, lone
and loveless in life. By this time 01
or both of you must surely ha1
chosen some gentle woman to ble
your home, who will not refuso a m

We wero of ouo mind and 01
heart io the matter, my brother and
If Mrs. Chelmsford would confide h
to our oare, the daughter of our m
thor's friend should seek no farther f
a home. I do not think tho prospe
at first afforded either of ns mu
pleasure. A young lady in our ve
house wouli sadly disturb our wont

guyety, and wanted to go into soc:

n my journoy the next morning, j:
reached tho village among
the lakes, I fonpd tho invalid more
feeblo tuan I had expected. She had
evidently noe many days to live. I
resolved to remnin till all was over.
She. welcomed me with feverish
eagerness; entrusted to my care all
the papers which concerned her
daughter's inheritance, leaving the
settlement of her affairs in my hands.
I bad somo hesitation in proposing
to her that Margaret should reside,
henceforth, with my brother and my?
self; some donbt as to whether she
wonld not think us too young to re?
ceive such a ward. I was glad to
find that she saw no impropriety in
it. I suppose I did not look at thir?
ty-six, very dangerously youthful.
She accepted my offer with tears of
joy and many thanks. It seemed to
have been the one pang of her doatli
struggle, that she must leave her
daughter so lonely in the world.
Now she was ready to depart.
"I know you will bo a brother to
hor," she said, holding my hand, on
the day she died. "I have no fears
about her, and I am very glad to go.
Lifo is so weary at best, aud so many
whom I loved have gone bofoi e-my
husband, tue little boy, my first
child, who died in babyhood, and my
mother, my truest friend. Moro ure
