When the tangled cobweb pulls The corn flower’s blue cap away, And tbe lilies tall lean over the wall To bow to tbe buttcifly, It is July. When the heat like a mist vail floats, And poppies flame in the rye, And the silver note in the streamlet’s Hi real Has softened almost (o a sigh, It is July. When tho hours are so still that time Foigcts them, and lets them lie ’Neath petals pink till the night stars wink At the sunset iu the sky, It is J uly. When each finger post by the way Says that Slumbcrtown is nigh ; When the grass is tall, and the roses fall, And nobody wonders why It is July. A STRANGE STORY. “Yes, sir, it was (hestrangeat thing that ever happened to me. I didn't believe it could be, but it came right along, and I ain’t a bit sorry for it now. I’ll tell you how it was, and then you'll see the strangeness of it. "I was young and foolish, sir. Most girls are at mv age. I was just sixteen, and I'd read ell about Cin derella, and I thought my prmoe'd tome one ol these bright days and say tome, ‘come, Julia, and We’ll laugh and dance and bo merry all our lives.' “J don't suppose there was any particular harm for a girl like me (who had to work so hard and please a cross missus, who the harder you tried to please her tho less satisfied she was) to dream at work, which wa from the rising of the sun to near midnight, of ptinoes and beaux and such like. “Well, one day my heart gave n great big thump, and I thought it'd rise right up in my throat and choke me. I'd been dreaming more than ever on that particular day about Prince Charming, and as I was trudging through the street where I'd gone on an errand, a nice young gentleman stepped quietly up to my side, and with a smile that was all sunshine on his handsome face—and it was handsome, sir—said ; “ ‘Pardon me, miss, but I’m a stranger in this town, and I'm in search of the house of Mr. Rodgers, the lawyer. Can you direct me to his residence ?’ “ ‘Why, yes, sir,’ I said, ‘I live with Mrs. Rodgers—she’s my mis tress.' “ ‘Aunt Rodgers—Aunt Becky Rodgers !' ha repeated. ‘l’m so glad.' “Now, sir, wasn’t itqueer he should say on such short acquaintance that he was glad? I know I was more than glad. Oh, he was good-looking. Was he the one I'd been dreaming and tbit king of so long? But, per haps, after sll he moant that he was glad he had found out wheze his cross aunt lived. “I took him directly to the door of the house, and I warned him on the way not to say to his aunt that he had seen and talked with me. ‘‘‘Why?’ ne asked. “'Became,' I said, and blushing, I know, like a cabbage rose, ‘if you do she'll he veiy atigty with me and scold me, and say I was presuming and all that.’ “ Julia,’ he murmured ever so softly. You see, sir, I told him my name. “Well, sir, I tan down the base ment steps and was in the kitchen as unconcerned like as possible where Mrs. Rodgers just then happened to he, when a tremendous ringing at the door-bell began. “ ‘Gracious I' exclaimed mistress, 'who can that be? Julia, run up and see who that is, and if it is any one for me show 'em into the front par lor and tell 'em I'll he up presently. And then you come right down and tell me who it is, do you hear?’ “ ‘Ycs'm’ I said, and with my face all afire, I bounded up tho basement stairs and into the hall. I flew io tbe front door and opened it. Here was tbe handsome young gentleman. I said to him 'Walk into the parlor. Your aunt will ha with you in a min ute.’ "He followed me to the room, and all at once, sir, he put an arm around me, and stooping until his sunshiny face was on a level With mine, whis pered as he looked right into my eyefi ‘Remember, Julia, we areto ho friends, and this shall he our pledge.' "And all at once, sir, Its kissed me. It my face had been afire before, what was it now, and there was mistress to meet. “But 1 was in good fortune that day. I broke away from the young man, George Bigart hi*- name was, and ran back into the hall. Then I went to the basement stairs, which were dark like, and there I met mis tress coming up them. “ ‘You have been a long time a let tin' 'em in,' she said, sharply. ‘Who is it?' “ ‘A young gentleman, ma’am, ns says he wishes to see you particular >y-' “ ‘A yeunggentleman,' she repeal ed. ‘What does he look like ; what is his name ?' “He said, ma'am, that his name was George Bigart. “ ‘Oil, George, is it ? My nephew.’ “The old lady hurtied along tie hall ti tho front parlor, and when she got to thedoar she cried ; “ ‘What, Georj 0, t-i it jou ?’ “‘fes, aunt. I've come down fo see vou.’ “Then I heard !.or kiss him. “ ‘And now that I’ve got vo: , i mean to keep you for a good while.' she added. “I hurried down stidis all of a flutter and instead of going about my work J went todrean.ing of Ihe sweet prince who had just arrived. “For several days the young gen tleman kept in Lis rrom, and when ever Mrs. Rodgers went nut of the house, and she always did her own murks'ing, h d be down in the kitchen, and ho hung around me just ns if he was my shadow. Oh, he courted mo desperately. Well, sir, how could I refuse tho attentions of so nice a young man ? And ha would kiss me at least a dozen times a day. “Now, wasn't it natural that a young girl, such as I then was, always dreaming as truth the story ot Cin derella, her heart not being made to learn to like so nice a gentleman as was George Bigart ? "I was in constant dread lest his aunt should notice his coming near me. Should shesitrpriso him, wouldn’t there have been trouble, and I'd not only only have got a good molding, hut told to go home, and I knew my folks were not in such a condition as to support mo in idleness. “One day Gecrge came to mo as full of love as an egg is of meat, and I told him what I’d been thinking and what I feared. Ho laughed and said he’d k he more careful in the future, and added if by his indiscretion his aunt should discharge me he’d make it up by giving mo money to go to school and stay at home. “I grew very angry at that and told him he had insulted me ; hut he de clared he had no thought of doing so, that he loved me dearly, and 0110 day ho would, if I con-onted, mike me his wife. “ ‘And now, Julia,’ ho continued, after he had kissed and kissed me uu til I was in a good humoi again, ‘now that v.e understand each other I want you to do me an especial favor. Bit yon must solemnly promise (list yim will do precisely as I as., yon, ad that until I give you p.rmiseion, you will never divulge it to anyone—<o not even your' mother, my aunt, or any one, man, woman or child.' "If there's nothing wrong in t, George, lieturned—l'd got to calling him, familiar like, by hie Christian name—l ddo anything you ask me to do. “ ‘Wrocg I’ he reported. Why should I ask you to do that which was wrong? Are we not all but as one to each other? If you love me, Julia yon must have entire confi lence in mo.’ “ ‘What is it you ask of mo, George ?' I said. “ 'This,' he answered, and he rpoke scarcely above his breath, while the color iu his face turned to an ashen like hue. ‘I have a great ties I of money. It’s in gold and hank notes, and a lot cf diamond rings, and three or four gold watches, and I want you to hide them away. They’re up stairs in ray room, hut I’m afraid some sharp-eyed fellow'll come along and 1 $1.50 per annum-ln advance. WHOLE NUMBER, 615. weed them out.
