An Autumn Picture.
Sky deep, Intense, and wondrous blue.
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.
Seems but a breath of by -gone days.
And clover which has bloomed anew -Since
shining scythes did cut it through.
And corn-fields with their harvest fair.
And golden-rod upon the hill.
And purple asters blooming still,
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
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,

In a moment both girls were bv her

away the falling tears.
A month ago things had been very
different for the Justin's. An indul

wood had echoed voices of youthful
gayety. But the "grim destroyer" had
come and stricken down in his prime

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

in a pleasant voice, asked if she were
"Miss Justin." On her assenting, he

a human head.
As she entered the room the old lady
rose and took her hand, saving in short
"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
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
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
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
"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
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
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
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
Alice colored at the unexpected ques
tion, and replied, evasively, that of
course she thought him a very fine
"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
Julia blushed and laughed, and an
swered the look by holding up her

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
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
"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

A dark flush rose to the young man's
cheek as he assented to her words.
Well, Roland," she continued.

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
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
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.

Miss Grej- said she was too old to at

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
