O! valley of the Illinois:
Tears 'neutli mine oyclhU swell,
As pi.hi;; on thy beauteous face,
I take in J lift farewell!
y last farewell, my fund goml-byi',
Of vale, and lilutr, und stream and sky.
I've loved thine, every varying scene,
Thy every varying iiuumI;
Thy summers with their smiling mien,
Thy winters rouijh and rude;
Thy sprin.ir.s reluetmit, coy mid chill.
Thine iiiituunis rich, end Mr, and still.
When others chid with critic air
My voice spoke naught hut praise;
I plead thy present beauties rare,
Thine old historic days,
Thine Indian tstory of romance,
Thy hold llr.-t settlers from France.
Iu life's spring-time 1 eaine to thee
A cheerful, happy bride;
Love vs hUpercd fondly in mine ear,
While joy walked at my side,
And hope her sweetest music suiitf,
For life was fair and I w.is yotin.
In autumn-time, ull tired and faint,
Fair vale, I leave thee now;
Hope' voice is hushed, but memory's plaint
Bemoans llu loiu' uifo;
Joy has (.Town shy and walks apart,
While loe lies slain by death's keen dart.
lint blessini;j on the gentle homes
Which thou doftt soft enfold,
And blessings on the warm, true heart,
Fair vale, which thou djt hold.
With loving si'hs I sriy it o'er
Peace be upon thee evermore!
I hoped when oilier hopes were (b ad,
At lea.-t, that on thy breast,
I might at la.-t lay down my head
I welcome, dreamless rest!
It may not be, ufar I dwell;
Home of in v heart! Farewell! Far
A tr.iin bound for .St. Louis had just left the

tered the Miioking car, ami laid his hand up

"I'm coming to that. The whole party

Such a be luty ! .She dried tin; mother's tear,
:i:ul wiped the childivns' noses. She is a di
vinity! She only needs a lew feathers on her
shoulder blades to make a full-IIcdgal angel
of her. If I was not a married man, I'd nev

"That's a speech which I shall faithfully

gentleman addressed us Marey, rising. "1

traveling satchel and shawl from the rack,
"as we stop at the next station, which is due

This said, KicliarJ .Marey threw his sliaivi
over his shoulder, and sauntered leisurely
through the long train, rushing blindly and
calmly to bis fate. For, as he entered the last
ear but one, he became- a witness ami an ali

Flushed and breathless he burst into the
next room upon hi friend.
"Townsend," cried lis, "I've got the w rong

Dick. "Cigars, and u hairbrush, and a pack

"And 'this 1 look for a clean shirt," and
Dick held up a frilled and Muted sacque, such
as do duty lor more exlensire night-dresses
with ladies when traveling. "I'd like to see

And Dick fell to musing, with the slipper

Iii the upper apartment of a handsome
mansion in St. Louis, on the esening or the
day our heroine first made the reader's ac
quaintance, beautiful lirace Kdgerly, the pet
led and only daughter of the house, sat con
templating the various articles her confiden
tial maid was disposing upon the labk ar
'.ides taken from no lets a receptacle ih.in
Dick Marey "s traveling bag.
The cards and cigar case lay side by side,
and a highly scented party they were.
"What's in that little silver Mask, KosaV
said the fair heiress.
"Ihiinily," replied the maid.
"He can't be verv dissipated to travel with
such a little bottle. That's in ci.se of sickness,
I suppose," returned Urace.
"It's my belief," said Uosa, w ho w as a sharp
I'irl. "that the gentleman was a nice one, else
you'd not so readily excuse ihe cards and the
brandy bottle."
"For shame, Kosa!" All gentlemen play
euchre traveling, and ev. a clergymen take a
little brandy in ease- of sickness. And this
man was a gentleman, and a liberal one, too,
for he gave the poor emigrant woman ten dol
lars. What's that, Ilosit."
For at that moment l.is,i held between lo r
linger a letter.
Whether it was wrong to i .-ad a stranger's
letter perplexed (iraeeii-r a moment, usher

"Why.ol'all liiings!" ex. Limed the delight

Europe when we two raotuti d at Madam

When a French orator had finished an do

them cried out, "I should like a lock of that

to grant the favor loan admiring auditor.

which the politeness of the Mattered Cicero

the speech had consumed, the speaker w as
