With clouds that muI tne beaTcns throuftu ; And moantain slopes so broad and (air, With here and there, amongst the green, A maple or an ash-tree seen In glowing color, bright and rare. Green fields, where silvery ripples fade. With cattle resting in the shade; Far mountains, touched with purple haze That, like a reil of morning mist. By gleams of golden sunslight kissed.

And purple asters blooming still, into sir. Scribner for November. An Autumn Eve. From the Boston Transcript. The autumn niebt is cold and drear. The whirling leaves are blown and sear, The winds that whirl tbem to ana fro, With sad forebodings of the snow. Battle the casements, shake the door. And round the house, with lusty roar, Sway, the bare trees, and then away Dart madly in their noisy play. Within, the fire burns warm and bright, Tne dog lies passing in toe light. The boys about their father's Knee List to some tale of land or sea. While grandpa in the ruddy glow Sees scenes forgotten long ago, And mother sews with loving eyes, As fast the happy evening flies. The Velley of the Yomouri. ISLAND OF CUBA. ISLAND OF CUBA. I. When the dull gray mists of the morning Hung over tne land ana sea, We rode to the heights o'erlooking The Vale of the Yomouri; Thither we rode, and waited ' Till the sun, like an Angel of Light, Touched with transfiguring glory The vaporous ghost ot night. While over the sea behind us The clouds yet darkly lie, Tbey are silvery on the hill-sides. They are crimsoned up in the sky; And with noiseless smoke-surf drifting And breaking on palmy knolls, With its great drop-curtain lifting, The tropical scene outrolls! In the lap of the verdant mountains, In many a mural chain, Here ripens the golden orange, Here sweetens the sugar-cane; Not fairer the Happy Valley Of the Abyssinian tale; And the giant Pan of Matanzas Is monarch of the vale. With glistening eyes, as of childhood, O'er the summer bills I glance, .With eyes that the unfamiliar Enchants with the hues of romance. Oh, I stood there, as Youth stands ever, With the morning light on the earth, Yet near the veiled ocean, shadowing The mystery of Birth. ISLAND OF CUBA. I. II. We rode through the valley at evening A golden sunset burned. And against it the piny summits Were black, as we returned; The mountain shadows lengthened, The sun went down behind, And in streamers of rosy color Grew the twilight arch define. With luminous interspaces Of that glory in the west, The feathering palm-trees tapered Up from each hillock's crest; Than columns of human temples More tall and graceful far; Their broad leaves faintly silvered By the rays of the evening star. It was beautiful as a vision! But ire passed a gap in the hills, . By a river and lo 1 the ocean The vast horizon fills! No more as it was at morning, Wrapped in a misty cioud, It stretched to the north in its grandeur, With the gathering bight its shroud; And I thought of the valley's legend-' Of the chief in battle slain, Whose soul went forth as thy winds go, Thou melancholy main! Oh, often in pleasant places Our lines of life may be, But Joy casts a shadow and round us Forever flows the sea! William Gibson, in Harper's Magazine for November. ALICE'S VOCATION. It was a large elegant room. The pale flame of the lamp on the centre ta ble which was the only light, was hard ly sufficient to more than dimly define the earrings of the massive furniture. At the table were two girlo, one busily engaged in writing, and the other standing with her hand on her sister's shoulder, watching the rapid pen. A little way from the light was a del icate, fragile looking lady reclining in an invalid chair, while at her feet qui etly played two golden-haired children. ''Mamma, dear, it is finished. See If it will answer." The pen stopped, and pushing her hair back from her finely shaped fore head, Alice began : A young lady wishes to obtain a position as companion to an elderly la dy or an invalid. She is well educated and refined, and wonld be willing and obliging in any way in her power." "Oh, Allie, broke in her sister, "How queer it seems just a month ago you were 'Miss Justin of Beech- wood,' and now willing and oblig ing,' " (with a bitter emphasis on the words). "Josie!" the soft voice had a tone of rebuke, as Alice glanced toward her mother 8 chair. Mrs. Justin s face was bidden by one thin, white hand, and through the slight fingers the tears were stealing. In a moment both girls were bv her side. Josie impulsively flinging her arms around her neck, while Alice gent ly drew down the hand, and kissed away the falling tears. A month ago things had been very different for the Justin's. An indul gent father had supplied them with ev ery luxury,and the great halls of Beech wood had echoed voices of youthful gayety. But the "grim destroyer" had come and stricken down in his prime the indulgent father, and the widow who for some time had been in delicate health had found herself and children left, not wealthy as everyone supposed. but absolutely not knowing where next to tarn for the necessities of life. Mr. Justin, like too many others, had lived, spending freely and carelessly as he went along, and not looking out for the future; and when his affairs were settled and all his debts paid, there was nothing left At first Mrs. Justin was stunned; but she had risen to the emergency. She rented a small cot tage, and there with the help of ener getic Josie, was to keep boarders, and thus support herself and children. It was a bitter blow for her to consent to Hhe carrying out of Alice's plan of going ms a companion; but "necessity knows no law," and so the advertisement which we have read came to be written. As Alice alighted from the cars af ter her journey to the home of Miss Grey, who had answered her advertise merit, a gentleman approached her, and in a pleasant voice, asked if she were "Miss Justin." On her assenting, he motioned to the driver of a luxurious coupe near by, and assisting her to en ter, lifted his hat courteously and walk ed away. Alice found her employer to be an old withered-lip lady, with the blackest. honest pair of eyes that could be set in a human head. As she entered the room the old lady rose and took her hand, saving in short abrupt sentences: "So this is to be my companion, lou look young, child. Alice Justin, I think what vou wrote was vour same'; Well 1 will call you Alice." And so Alice became an inmate of the quiet house. Her duties were light and she fonnd a great deal of time to write loving letters to the dear ones at home. Before long she met the gentleman whose face had been the first she saw on her arrival. He was Miss Grey's lawyer, and often spent a great deal of time in the old ladrs library, writing at her dictation, while she knit and her companion read. Youth is always at tracted to youth, and Roland Hall was young; and when his writing was done he would chat animatedly with the lit tle old lady, who evidently thought him perfection, and, liked nothing better than to draw him out nI show off to advantage his fluent conversational powers. So it was that as time passed, Alice grew to look forward with delight to the young lawyer's visits. Her life was monotonous: but she had grown to love the eccentric old lady who was so stern and bitter to the outside world, but so tender and kind to- her. One day, as they were sitting in the library, Roland with them, the bell rang and in a moment the door new open, and in rushed a radiant vision It was a beautiful girl, tall and ex quisitely formed. The golden curls, flowing from beneath a jaunty cap, glit tering down over an elegant cloak, which, falling carelessly from her shoul ders, showed the snowy fur lining She sprang to Miss Grey's side, and clasp ing her arms around her neck, literally deluged her with kisses. "Here I am, my dear Miss Grey, back again. How glad I am to see you. Mamma has given me permission to spend a whole week !with you. Isn't that grandf Then turning and greeting Roland she smiled up into his lace, as she held out her little gloved hand. J ust then the quiet figure, in its simple dark dress, by Miss Grey's side, attracted her notice. "And what quiet little body is this?" Alice crimsoned at the rather con temptuous tone of the address, and. raising her dark eyes, calmly surveyed the saucy beauty. "Julia, let me make you acquainted with Miss Justin. Miss Justin Miss Luttrell." The girls bowed, but a hostile look shot from the wide open blue orbs as Julia Luttrell mentally said : "Only passable as regards looks; but with dangerous eyes. I suppose she has been flashing them at Roland be fore now." She threw off her wraps, and soon was in the midstof a lively, interesting account of the travels from which she had just returned. As Alice watched the rose tint come and go on the dainty cheek, and the mischievous dimples now disclose and now hide themselves, as the red lips curved away from the tiny pearl-shaped teeth in the charming smiles Miss Luttrell was very lavish of, she thought to hersolf, with a dull pain at her heart. "No man living could resist such fas cinations." Roland seemed to know his fair en tertainer very well, and Alice soon found herself and Miss Grey only spec tators, as the two jested and laughed together. Alice's was a proud nature. She was one of the kind who guard their love as a queen guards her most precious jew els; but that love once bestowed, neith er time nor eternity could cause it to falter or change, and she had known for some time that her heait had found its master. She had felt, too, that Ro land Hall cherished for herself some thing warmer than mere friendship, al though no words had been spoken. Roland had to come very often that week, and Julia Luttrel made herself more bewitching each time. i One day when the girls were alone together, Julia suddenly said: "Well, Miss Justin, how do you like Mr. Hall?" Alice colored at the unexpected ques tion, and replied, evasively, that of course she thought him a very fine young man. "Oh! how glad I am every one ad mires him so." Something very significant in the speaker's tone caused Alice to raise her dark eyes questioningly to her corapan ion's face. Julia blushed and laughed, and an swered the look by holding up her shapely hand, On its forefinger gleam ed a large solitaire! Poor Alice ! she bore her agony brave ly until all alone, and then, in her out burst of passionate anguish, she real ized the depth of her love for one whom she knew belonged to another, and whom she must tear from her heart The next day Julia left for her own home, and things went along quietly again. Miss Grey's sharp eyes noticed the change in her young companion, and shrewdly suspected the cause. One day she asked Roland to come up to her room as she wished to talk to him a little while. Roland Hall was the son of an old schoolmate and when years before he had been left an orphan, Miss Grey had taken him into her lonely home, and he had grown up to look upon her with the affection a son yields to a dearly-loved mother. "Roland," the old lady began when they were alone, "you know how much I have thought of Julia how, years ago, while she was yet a little, winning gin, 1 set my heart upon you two mar ryjng when you grew up!" A dark flush rose to the young man's cheek as he assented to her words. Well, Roland," she continued. I have noticed for some time back, or thought I noticed, that those plans conceived in my romantic old brain were only air-castles, after alL T have thought I saw an expression dawning in your eyes, my boy, when they looked upon another dear girl, very different to that with which they ever looked upon Julia, and I was glad, for as Julia has matured I miss in her those noble, womanly qualities I would like to see in my dear Roland's wife, yet, if Julia is your choice, I will never say another word." Roland started to his feet, and clasping the old lady's hand, in a voice trembling with suppressed emotion, ex claimed: My dear friend my more than mother you have seen rightly. I do loveyour gentle companion who could know her but to love her? But I knew your plans for Julia and myself, and I feared to give 3011 pain. But " here he paused suddenly. 'But what Roland? ' "I do not think Alice loves me. I thought at one time I could win her sweet affections; but of late she is changed. She avoids me." The keen eves softened as they rest ed on the voting roan's ingenious fea tures, and Miss Gre3- softl- said: "Ask her. Roland, 'taint heart nev er won fair lady,' and never deserved to, either." And so it was that when Alice stole away one afternoon to her favorite nook a little vine-wreathed arbor in the garden Roland found her there. As he entered, Alice rose to go: but his firm clasp detained her, while in ardent, impetuous words, he flooded her heart with the bliss of knowing her se cret love need be a secret no longer. Timidly Alice raised her gloiious eyes her only beauty and read his face. Then she falteringly whispered, "Ju lia." "Julia ! And what of her? Ah f ( as a light broke in upon him) "did you think 1 loved her loved her when I knew you, my darling? Why, we were never more than friends never! and then the small figure was gathered close, and the young iips met in that never-to-be forgotten first kiss of love. The next letter Alice received from home contained news which made her feel sadly. Beechwood, their dear old home, had been sold. "Allie,'' wrote Josie. "we do not know. who is the piiivliasrr; but whoever it is he is having it fitted up in princely style." Then, with favorable reports of the mother s health and many ques tions about the "new brother, the lat ter closed. Of course Alice had to go home to make her preparations for her marriage, which Roland wished to be very soon Miss Grej- said she was too old to at tempt to come to the wedding. As Al ice bade her good -by the old lady held her to her heart for a moment and then kissing the sweet face to which she had been the means of bringing so happy a look, placed her in her betrothed hus band's care for the homeward journey. It did not take many days to con vince the mother that her child had cho sen wisely and well, and Josie and the little brothers gave him a place in their (hearts right away. So no cloud, even "as large as a man s hand," obscured the sun of Alice's hap piness, as 6he stood by Roland's side and promised to "love, honor and ooey. The wedding tour was a long one. After many delicious days, spent first in one beautiful spot and then in an other, they bent their steps homeward. It had been decided ' that they were first to spend some time at Alice's own home. So when the depot carriage did not stop at the cottage door, but drove on into the grounds of her old home Beechwood, and there, under the great carved stone porch stood hei mother, sister, brothers and Miss Grey what wonder was it that Alice became so dazed that her husband had to lift her in his strong arms and carry her into the midst of the eager group before she realized or understood anahing? That evening, when they were all as sembled in the dear familiar library, now ablaze with light, which touched and brought out even- luxurious detail, Alice was told a wonderful story. Miss Grey was her mother's own aunt Years before, the old lady, then not old, but just recovering from grief at the loss of her betrothed husband, had taken her dead sister's infant daughter under her roof, and into her heart, as later she had taken Roland. The infant grew up into a lovely girl, and became attached to a gentleman whom Miss Grey did not like. The young couple had been torbidden to meet; but taking matters in her own bands, had eloped. "That girl, Alice, was your mother. I have an unforgiving nature, my dear," Miss Grey continued, "and when I found what she had done, I vowed I never could see or forgive her. But child, God's ways are mysterious; when I read your advertisement and recog nized your name Alice Justin your mother's name, I had given it to her myself all the old love for your moth er came back to my heart and I sent for j-ou. And so my precious Alice, you have been the means of bringing back to me my youthful heart, for I have never been really happy since your mother and I parted." By this time Mrs. J ustin's arms were around the old lady's neck, and they were sobbing together from very hap piness. Beechwood had been purchased by Miss Grey for Roland to whom after his engagement with Alice she had told ail the above story. Miss Grey did not go back to her lonely home; and Beechwood again rings with the music of youthful voices. Mrs. Justin's health is steadily im proving, and Josie queens it right roy ally as Miss Justin, of Beechwood. Roland and Alice vie with each other in smoothing their dear old friend's declining years, and it is a pretty sight to see the look of peace and content which lights up the withered face, as her eyes looked upon their wedded hap piness. I True Gentlemen. "I beg your pardon," and with a smile and a touch of his hat, Harry Edmond handed to an old man against whom he accidentally stumbled, the cane which he had knocked from his band. "Not a bit! not a bit!" said the old man cheerily. "Boys will be boys, and it's best they should be. You didn't harm me." "I'm glad to hear it;" and, lifting his bat again, Harry turned to join the playmates with whom be was frolics ing at the time of the accident. "What do you raise your bat to that old fellow for?" aiked his companion. Charley Gray. "He's only Giles, the huckster." "That makes no difference," said Harry. "The question is not whether he is a gentleman, but whether I am one; and no true gentleman will be less polite to a man because he wears a shabby coat, or hawks vegetables through the streets, instead or sitting in a counting-house." W hich was right? A woman who takes a woman to her friends introduces her into life as tbey do the bearer of a flag of trace into the enemy's camp unharmed and blind' folded. Man goes to the dogmas; woman is satisfied with sacraments. Her instinct apprehends what his reason is slow to admit; that God allows himself to be approached more readily than to be un derstood.

A great merchant was accustomed to tell his many clerks that he laid the foundation of his property when he used to chop wood at twenty-five cents a cord. Whenever he was tempted to squander a quarter, he would say, "There goes a cord of wood." He learned in very early years a lesson in practical economy. An eld woman had been seen for many years hanging about the wharves where vessels were loaded and unload ed in New York harhor, intent on pick ing up grains of coffee, corn, rice, etc., that by chance scattered on the piers.

Words of Wisdom. Great gifts make beggars bold. Be wise worldly, but not worldly wise. It is right to be contented with what we have; never with what we are. Many people find their only happi ness in forcing themselves to lie un happy. Virtue requires no other recompense than the tribute of self-approbation nnd respect. The flower which we do not pluck is the only one which never loses its beauty or its fragrance. He who will not reason is a bigot; he who cannot is a fool; and he who dares not is a slave. Truth is ei lipsed often, and it sets for a night, but never is it turned aside from its eternal path. , Truth will never die: the stars will grow dim, the sun will pale his glory; out trutn win ever do young.

Instead of Jbnl ing the hair with a pasty sediment, it will keep it dean and rigorous. Its occasional use will prevent the hair from turning; gray or falling off, and consequently prevent baldness.

Containing neither oil nor dye, it does not soil white cambric, and yet lasts long on the hair, gmr it a rich, glossy lusts and a grateso perfume. Prepared by Dr. J. C.
