DAY AND TO-MORROW. Old Time U the drollest of wap. And puzzles tbe world with bis rulea: lie ere all to-day to the wise, Tmnnmw he promised the fools. At first he made nought but to-day. With its Joys, its successes, and sorrow; Then to keep od good terms with the world, He promised he'd make a to-morroui. Tbe Idle rejoiced at tbe news, Put their hands in theirpockeU and slept, Believing the promise of Time Would be most religiously kept. . They never conceived that the rogue Had promised to-morrow in fun, 80 quietly went to decay. Leaving all to-day's woik to be done. At last they woke op but to find To-morrow was really a myth. And thought what they'd do when too late, If they had the time to do with- They prayed old Time to return, Twas merely the wasting of breath, For tbey found, as he laughed and flew on, That to-morrow was nothing but death. T Harper's Bazar. The Playmate. Tbe pines were dark on Ramoth Hill, Their songs were soft and low, Tbe blossoms in the sweet May wind Were falling like the snow- Tbe blossoms drifted at our feet, Tbe orchard birds sang clear, Tbe sweetest and the saddest day It seemed of all the year. For more to me than bird or flowers, My playmate left her borne, And took with her tbe laughing Spring The music, and the bloom. She kissed the lips of kith and kin, 6 lie laid her hand In mine: What more could ask tbe bashful boy Who fed her father's kine T She left us In the bloom of May; The constant years told o'er Their sessons with as sweet May morns. But she came back no more. I walked, with noiseless feet, the round Of uneventful years; 8UU o'er and o'er I sow tbe Spring And reap the Autumn ears. She lives where all tbe golden year Her summer roses blow ; The dusky children of the sun : Before her come and go. " There, haply, with her jeweled hands, She smooths her silken gown No more the homespun lap wherein I shook the walnuts down. Tbe wild-grapes wait us by the brook, Tbe brown nuts on tbe hill, . And still the May-day flowers make sweet The woods of Folly MilL The lilies blossom in the pond, The bird builds In the tree. The dark pines sing on Ramoth Hill The slow song of tbe sea. I wonder if she thinks of them, . And how the old time seems If e'er the pines of llainoth Wood - Are sounding in her dreams. I see her face I hear her voice; Does she remember mine? And what to her is now the boy Who fed her father's kine? - What cares she that the orioles build For others eyes thaa ours? , That other hands with nuU are filled, Aud others lays wilb flowers ? - Tbe winds, so sweet with birch and fern, 1 - A sweeter memory fclow; - Tnd then in Spring tbe veeries sing The song of long ago. . And still the pines of Ramoth Hill Are moaning like the sea The moaning of a sea of change Between myself and tbee. J. G. Whittier. THE LITTLE SCHOOL TEACHER. "Mother, you are making me misera ble very miserable, indeed, aud only a month ago I was unutterably happy." "Your misery is ephemeral, my dear son. Tbe time will come, perhaps, when you will bless me for my interfe . rence that now you consider unwise and cruel." The soft summer sun, delicately tem pered by clouds of pearl ; and gold, would have shown on a pretty and peaceful scene of nature only for the . human passion that marred it. On every side were green meadows, thick with clover bloom, and fields of wheat and corn yellowing in the sun. In the center of the scene stood theSev erne homestead with its tall walls of pale-grey stone, its lofty observatory with glittering glass windows and its shining, brazen weather-cock, and with its wide, handsome portico, the slendet uiaiuie puiars ih wuicu were wuuuu with rare vines, heavy with Sweet-scent- ed flowers. From the broad, high parlor windows, open to the balmy wind, and flung ajar to the low, antiquely-concreted floor of . this portico came those earnest,aggriev- In the middle of the room, in a quaint lyKSushioned chair sat Mrs. Severene a proud, matronly-faced lady, who was Rwifllr nenrino- her thrpA np.nrp. veara. Her only child Leo, stootl beside her. He was the son of her youth, and the pride of her long widowhood, and the only reminder she jealously held of her dead husband, except the fair and goodly estate that la- so smilingly in the summer sun. Leo Severne was nearly forty, and people marveled that he had remained unmarried, whereas he was handsome and winning, being- superbly framed flkflfl nnhlv fnt.iirpri finelv ivlnpfttivl nnrl j , -v highly eultured, and had airays been, moreover, the favorite of all women. "Why have you never taken a wife, Mr. Scverner maid and matron had asked him; "surely so kind and amia ble a man sho'd have done so long ago." ."When I meet a woman whom I can love more than my mother, I shall mar ry her if she will have me," the devoted son would always reply. But the question was never asked him after dark-eyed RossieLynde had"come to teach the unruly boys and mischiev- nna crtrla rf t ho x-1 1 1 a nro ai- 1. rrl tfVit anmw " ' ""o """"1 gossiping spy thereabout knew and talked of the change that had come up on him since that spring morning when he had found her amone; the winter greens on her way to the brick gothic structure where she was expected to fill young minds with old book lore at the rate of two dollars a head for a term of three months, and found her weeping bitterly because among so many strang "ers, no one seemed anvthing more than strange. And all these watchful gos sips knew and talked about the gentle way with which he had comforted her, of how he had walked, and" rode, and sung with ber, and of the great bouquets of roses and lilies that he had sent to qer. "He is bewitched by that girl," said the gossips, with comments that refined senses shrink from hearing. Perhaps none would have been hard upon the friendless girl only for the sneers of the rich and popular Mrs. Leonie Chisholm, who was a permanent boarder at the Severne mansion, and usually had her will with the aged mother of the bachelor renegade. .ulfj.W!. L.I II 1- - T . . , jirs; vjuisuinm wuuiu ue just me match for Mr. Severne," they assented: "she is about his age, and certainly he could not find a finer nor more elegant creature. This was just what his mother tho L and this is just whr she had brought herself to reason with her obstiuate son on that sweet, summer day. The time will come, perhaps, when you will bless me for my interference, that now vou consiuer unwise anu cruel." "What objection have you to Rossie to Miss Lvnae mother, as my wife?" asked her son. "What objection? IIow can you ask? Do you does any one know anything about her or her antecedents'? It is true that she was brought to the village by an apparently very venerable and respectable person. Her certificates of character and ability seemed to be ev erything irreproachable; I admit, but not one of us not one member of the Board of Education had ever before heard the names of the honorable and reverend gentlemen whose names were annexed to those certificates. They may be forgeries, and she an adventu ress; and indeed, that is the general opinion since you "Since I have openly expressed my respect for her, and publicly announced my intention of making her my wife, interrupted Mr. Leo Severne. "Has it come to that, my son?' Her son was deeply moved by her hurt and reproachful voice. "Mother !" he said in kind remon strance, "I love Rossie Lynde so well that unless 6 he becomes my wife, I shall never many. "And you have repeatedly said, my boy, that you would never wed a wom an whom you could not love better than the mother who idolizes you. U, Leo If you disobey me it will be my death !" she cried, in anguish. "If vou must marry, why not turn your heart toward our dear Leonie. Indeed, my boy, I have long had my mind fixed on your union with her." Leo Severne gazed at his parent in amazement for a long moment. "My mother, j'ou must be out of your senses quite, he gasped. "Do you know her record A faint flush wavered over the with ered cheeks. "Do you know anything more than mere rumorr she inquired, huskily. "Such a rumor is quite enough, I think," he answered. "Two cousins, possible heirs to the will of a capricious uncle, loved her: she schemed to marry the richest. Believing that the uncle's choice was made, she made every prep aration for her nuptials With the puta tive favorite. On the eve of her wed ding she learned her mistake and eloped with and manied the true heir. The deserted bridegroom went mad, and killed himself. When tbe deceived hus band learned the truth a year after, be took his baby daughter and left her forever, assured that her sordid soul would be consoled by the fortune for which she had married him, and which he left subject to her control for a time. A few months after, the tidings came that the husband and child had been lost at sea. That is how Mrs. Chis holm became a rich widow." "You have almost a fool's faculty of exaggerating things said to have occur red years ago, and a thousand miles from here. Indeed, you speak assured ly," responded the lady, with a bitter ness that ill became the sweet old face. "I speak knowingly," returned the agitated gentleman, with quite as much bitterness; "and if not, mv assertions surely could be no more malevolent than those of these village croakers and nonentities, who are only invidious to my Rossie because I have refused to take a help-mate at their liking or among them rather. Oh, mother dear, do not oppose me in the dearest wish of my life. We could live so happily together1 you, Kossie and I. "We will not discuss this matter any longer to day, said Mrs. Severne, set ting her firm teeth sternly upon her thin white lips, as she dismissed him with a gesture of outraged dignity. As the door closed behind him she arose from her luxurious chair, and go ing to the window watched him passing down the walk. "He is too good a son to marry with out my consent; and that, he will never have unless he gives up this girl for Le onie," she mused, and then she grew strangely pale. "The Severnes have never yet stooped to sly deeds even to gain a worthy end, but alas! I fear it is left to me to be a diplomatist My son, I shall become an intriguer for your sake. What she meant was in that moment only a chaotic idea, but it found shape and form the next day in a laconic let ter sent to Rossie Lynde, without s signature. Rossie was sitting at her desk when it came, and her weary, dark eyes grew troubled as she broke the seal, for there was something ominous i to her sensi tive perceptions in the very perfume of the envelope that bore her name in quaint, heavy, and nervous strokes, bhereaa swittly, taking in every word with a clear intensity that was the pain of pains. "His infatuation of many a girl like you has lasted but for a day. With him "what's won is done.'- The only lady he will make his wife, is Leonie Chisholm, to whom he is betrothed. Go to her and ask her, if yon will not believe one who, though friendly to you, must remain unknown. His moth er despises you as you must know al ready from the manner with which she has persistently ignored your presence in the place. Take warning and leave the village if you would not be nndone. Ut course you Know what they are saying about yon here in consequence of his secret and doubtful attentions. Many things little slights and hints from the watchful villagers came now to her memory, and these things seem ed to exaggerate the subtle poison of the letter. She would go away at once and for ever. ''I am really glad that you have re signed vour oosition and are coins J . jr o away, Miss Lynde," said her landlady, standing on tne tnresnoia 01 her nar row doot and curiously watching the slim, shrinking figure; "I would have advised you to do this long ago, if I had thought you would have taken it kindly. You see it hurts a poor girl young as you, when rich bachelors, not too old, take a fancy to them, 'special ly, miss, when it is all secret like." "I do not understand you," was the proud and indifferent answer. "I am afraid Mrs. Chisholm would pretend not to understand, too," was the last significant and cruel thrust "I will send for my baggage," re turned Rossie, quietly, as she walked away. That afternoon when Leo Severne came into the room, he found a dainty KttU ..it;,. ,:.., a : tained Rossie Lynde's farewell. As he , read, his keen lover perceptions caught the guarded anguish of every line, and he knew instinctively that only the grossest of falsehoods could have wrought so Budden a separation. "I will find you, my love, and make you mine if the world opposes me," he cried. But albeit his firm determination, he was very desolate. He wandered into the garden, and from thence into a parlor fitted up exclusively for the most favored guests. It was a beautiful rcom, with ex quisitely rich walls and ceilings painted as his own quaint fancy had suggested. One standing at the entrance would imagine a bower of living foliage and flowers, behind and above which were glimpses of a blue summer sky touch ed with rosy clouds. The carpet was like a still amber lake with golden pet aled water lilies strewn over it in natural confusion. Only the caived table, the ottomans and chairs, the vases and the ormolu clock with .its ceaseless ticking on the mantle only these things could dispel tbe illusion. In this room he had meant to bring Rossie, and ask his mother to bless their love. But she was gone, and unless he found her, life would never be the same again. He threw himself in a chair and buried his head in his arms upon the chill, cold marble of the table. Presently a little rustle of perfumed air swept over hi in. He did not hear nor heed it A woman, magnificently beautiful, came through the length of the room toward him, but he was unconscious of her presence. Neither the fall of her dainty feet nor the sweep of her roval train, made a single sound as thev crossed the rich carpet And yet this woman was beautiful perilously, magnetically beautiful. Her hair, black as night was bound in great, lustrous coils about her small imperial bead, ana held there by a diamond hilted dagger. Her skin was colorless and satiny; her eyes, like burning iet were veiled with lashes of lovely length; her lips were like a cleft cherry ; her every feature was perfec tion. She wore some queenly dress of purple velvet minglea with satin that had the glint of mther-of-pearl, and diamonds and pearls blazed on her bosom and on her delicate fingers and wrists. Many a man had knelt at the feet of the haughty and peerless .Leonie Cms holm, but none had stirred her heart as did Leo Severne in this hour as she saw him there, bowed low in his sud den miser'. "I have come to comfort j'ou if you will listen to what I have to say," said the fair woman, tenderly touching his bowed head with her jeweled hands. ne lifted himself and looked at her. His blue eyes darkened with resent ment "Whatdoj-ou know of my trouble, that j-ou can help nie?" he asked, al most sternly. The woman could not command the skill of her coquetry just then. His steady eyes confused her, and she for got the prelude of the pretty speech she had coined for the occasion, and like Vivien, she used her hints inop portunely, and faltered forth a quota tion: "of some who prized him more Than who should prize him most." And, like King Arthur, the gentle man gazed upon her blankly. I would never have run away from you in such a secret and cowardly way, Leo," she continued, in a nervous frenzy of ardor and embarrassment "Please speak plain, Mrs. Chisholm, and tell me exactly what you mean, said Severne, with a shadow . of vexa tion and disgust creeping over his face. "UU, .Lee, 1 thought you knew, an swered the woman, in the random of ntter confusion. "I have been led to suppose that you only fancied that creature, Rossie Lynde, and that you really loved me. Oh, I did believe it indeed I did!" Her hard, black eyes grew soft with weak, pitiful tears, that another man might not have resisted at such a time. But Mrs. Leonie Chisholm as she looked upon him knew her doom. And Mrs. Severne coming in hur riedly, saw that one of her dearest hopes was wholly, frustrated. "Come away, my dearest Leonie," she said, "you have visitors. -I ! Who?' "Ah, that &tupid servant! They have been brought here, returned Mrs. Severne, stepping back politely, as a grey-haired, sad-looking man entered, followed by a slim, shrinking girl closely veiled. Mrs. fJuisholrn looked, and with a shrill cry of liorror and alarm, fell for ward upon a couch and hid her whit ening face. "She knows m, it seems," said the visitor, in tones that rung sardonically through the beautiful room. "You may have heard something of her hus band and child who were lost at sea years ago. ion may nave heard now she appropriated the worldly goods be longing to them, and left her native place leaving no trace behind her. I shall say nothing of that part of her history that made her life hateful to her in her old home, for I am that hns band, and this is her child and mine.' He lifted the veil from the face of the reluctant girl, and Leo Severne looked upon the beloved face of Rossie Lynde. Mrs. Chisholm uttered one startled shriek. ' Look at your wronged daughter, madame," said her husband, sternly. Look at the child, whom, but for my timely discoveries, vou would have slandered into her grave, for what pur pose only your own guilty soul can know. . After all these years of search it was willed I should find you to save you from a sin greater than all. What have you to say i She tried to speak, but her few words were faint and broken. God forgive me. IIow could I know?" she gasped, and then was si lent And that silence was the silence of death. The living could not have judged her then, if they would, seeing the bit ter agony of the man whom she had wronged. "I loved her once fondly and wholly, Rossie," he said, "and you and I will forget her faults.' So the evil she had done was "inter red with her bones," and her name was rarely mentioned, and never by Rossie Lynde Chisholm, who had nev er known the care nor love of the moth er whom she had found but to lose. In all his wandering, fortunes and failures, after that disastrous ship wreck from which they had been saved, Willard Lynde Chisholm had never told his daughter anything of her 'mater nal parentage, until these late and ro-l mantic developments had forced him to do so. It was then, for the first time, -that she knew that her father had a right to the distinguished cognomen by which he had refused to be known for so long. But Rossie Chisholm was just as dear to Leo Severne as Rossie Lynde had been, and at an early day he told her so. A grand and joyous wedding follow ed after a becoming time, and none congratulated her more lovingly than Leo s mother. And Rossie never spoke of the cruel letter that had caused her flight for she well knew who had instigated the action. And so well loved did Mrs. Rossie Severne become, that the most inimic al of the villagers found it the fashion to copy her virtues as well as her"gar menta, and those who had once reviled most, now praised most the whilom little school teacher. . - c a. - C -I 8i "S3 O.

This Sarsaparilla is a combination of vegetable alteratives Stillingia, Man drake, Yellow Dock with the Iodides of Potassium and Iron, and is the most efficacious medicine yet known for the diseases it is intended to cure, Its ingredients are so skilfully com bined, that the full alterative effect of each is assured, and while it is so mild as to be harmless even to children, it is still so effectual as to purge out from the system those impurities and corruptions which develop into loathsome disease. The reputation it enjoys is derived from its cures, and the confidence which prominent physicians all over the coun try repose in it, prove their experience of its usefulness. Certificates attesting its virtues have accumulated, and are constantly being received, and as many of these eases are publicly known, they furnish convincing evidence of the superiority of this Sar eaparilla, over every other alterative medicine. So generally is its superi ority to any other medicine known, thai we need do no more than to assure the public that the best qualities it hs ever possessed are strictly maintained.
