A TRUE IOYER OJ 1646.
- Thsy say loving has gono out of fashion,
6irocthcart; then am I saro that neither you
nor I can bo in tho fashion. For surely, if
lovo bo out cf fashion, kissing must lilrc-vire
bo; and that vas a kis3 you gavo mo
tvhen you took leave of no (and sad leave it
was, sxvcetheait!) both ray mouth and thino
will testify. Your lips trembled, eweet, and
tho teara stood in your oyes, and yet I loved
that gentle quivering better far than even
tho brightest smilo you ever gavo me, when
first I saiv you sweetheart, ah, so long ago!
Do you remember tho first time? You
have blushed at it many times privateby, I'll
warrant, for Ihero was neither sho nor stock
ing on your foot. You -.vera daintily fording
a swollen brook when my horse neighed, and
heigh, presto! your gown was dropped, and"
at sight of mc tho blood cams surging up in
to your cheek.
Sncethcart, that was long ago!
Jiany a blush you havo blushed, and many
a tear you have shed (for the which I beg
your pardon on my bended laiccs), for my
sake, sinco then!
Kow you have become the very soul of my
soul. I tell you this, not because you do not
know it well, but because it pleases mo might
ily to write it Soul of my soul, 111 writo it
ten thousand times, with ten thousand now
meanings each tune. Janet, can you imagine,
sweetheart, what pain 'twas to leave you,
and what greater, sweeter pain to seo ycu
giSGV-e at leaving mc2 I would not loso that
greater pain for all tho joys of heaven!
Rwovt, I'm not blasphemous. I could not
think of you and blaspheme; moreover, my
dear and honored chief would not allow a
blasphemous man to fight in his great cause.
Janet, do 3-ou know the one rival you have?
!ow bo jealous. I love a jealous woman.
Though jealousy is impossible 'twist 3011
and me. Lovo such as ours closes tho door
on jealousy. You have divined 3our rival,
Bwoct, without ouo word from me.
I always loved James Graham. Janet, and
now that ho liaj striven with all his might to
raise an array to avengo tho death of tho most
blessed murtyr Charles, I lovo him so intensely
that my pulsc3 lx-at and my breath quickens
at mere sound cf lib name.
Therefore I havo unsheathed my good
sword, which h keen oven as I am, to do bat
tlo in tho cans'. Therefore havo I bidden you
good-bj', nij Janet, and am sitting on an old
dram 12 our camp near Dun-bath, penning
these few line:, v. Inch may Lc an cvci lasting
Janet, it is r.ot a light thing io be a soldier a
love; haul it is for ou, sweet, and heavy to
bear, that I know full well, but you aro the
bra vast woman in tho whole world, and did
not flinch though tho tears stood in your
eyes when you kissed inc.
Fcrgivo me, sweetheart, for referring to
that kiss perchance tho last you may ever
givo me. Do 3-011 remember the horoscope
cast for me,' Sweet, if I am to die tho bloody
lcalh foretold for me, I pray that it may bo
on tho field cf battle. I spoko to tho noble
marques.: concerning this but ho has a higher,
purer faith than mine. Ho said that tho man
ner of dying mattered but little, piovided
that wo fell in a true cause.
It seems that ho never doubts. I havo
doubted everything savo on!' Janet.
Montrosn is a truo lover. IIo and I spend
many a night speaking about tho ladies wo
lovo best. Perchance his lady resembles you,
for 3011 haw much in common, inasmuch as
you scorn each to Lo tho loveliest, tniesr, dear
est of your sex. I do not tell my chief eo,
but I know my mistress is tho more loval.lo
cf thj two. Sweet, how rnany oyes liavo you?
For, when I lay awako at nights liider heav
en's canopy, each star looks at me with your
C3es. I lay and talk to them, and tell them
how I lovo -gu, and that I know you never
Will be mine. Sweetheart, tho thought kills
me. I am only as other men, and I long for
you night and da-. I try to pray that in
das to come, when I lio under tho sods, 'ou
will lovo some other man, and tho very
thought chokes me. Janet, you will never
lovo another man! Dear, it is widowhood
without over a bridal I am condemning
You will ask why these black thoughts and
terrors. Alas! the3 aro only too well founded.
I am 1.0 coward, Janet, and do not dread to
die, sw ord in hand, fighting to avciigo tho
blool of nij' murdered king. Hut, Janet,
Col. Straughau is upon lis with 112,000 men.
If I could but die at the side of ilonlrosol
f ,. . -will yon ever forget me, Janet?
Alas! that I ever met 30:1. But no, that is
heresy toward nry sweet. I lovo you with tho
whole of in' heart, dear, so farewell. 1 trust
his letter lo Duncan, who lniow3 crcr3" pass
and will biing theso lines to you though tho
enemy guard ovcry stone on the road.
If I wero but Diincan, to seo 3-our fa-o

until death, Jonx SrcrrioWOODi:.
P. S. It seems I am not in the fashion,
sweet, for I find I lovo 301 more than ever.
A fig for the fashion, say I! Zly fashion of
loving you Ls tho best and truest part of inc.
Shall I Ioso that? In ever! Even as I writo I
hear tho call 10 arms. I fear you will learn
tho issue of this light Ixtforo you receive this.
The little srifj of rosemary 3 cu plucked for
mo in happier times lies cloo to m3' heart; it
speaks to mo of 3-ou; but thcro was no need of
rosenwiy for remembrance. If I could but
forget 3'ou, dear heart, and you w ould but
forget me, I should go to battlo with a lighter
spirit; but my lovo weighs mo down, tho
sweetest burden that a man ever carried.
Again, farewell, sweetheart!
Alas! for my foreboding spirit, Janet, havo
3'ou heard of tho disaster that has befallen
us? Swoet, I trust that tho news of our de
feat has b t-n broken to you gently. I could
not rest all night after my capture for think
ing of N'ou, and how 3011 would lo ablo to
bear tho evils that havo como upon 113. In
fanc have I seen your cheek palo mid your
lips quiver, have seen tho glitter of your cyo
nn:l tho j.-uh of tears that will have dimmed
its brightness. I am costing 3-011 tears again,
Janet! I, w hoso onh' J03 'twas to fee you
smile. And now, sw cot heart, expect no quar

do I care to accept pit' from any man. Your

"Now that I am no longer free, I wear' for
a sight of the bonny heather, for a w hill of
tho fresh sea, for a sight of 'ou, Janet. I
tried not lo writo this last, because it is not
only weariug, it is too hopeless, too deep a
yearning. I would die content could I but
seo your face once more, but that will never
be. Dream visions of 3-ou will como to visit
mo; dreams remove bars nnd blots: dreams
scoff at prison walls; Janst glides in lo com
fort me, whether my jailers will or no. ily

Janet, I think I hear -our crying wnen cu
read this. Do not cry, sweet; for wcro you a
thousand mKcs away your tears would rend
my heart. It is not so great a loss to lose life
when one lias loc-t all else. Do not weep, my
Janet, for this poor, desperate lover of yours,
who is -xmiiing this. Bio enrcs not greatly to
live. Toancsile, hunted down by pitdo
foes, what would bo tho worth of life! Xo
worth a tear of 'oars, Janet!
And yet I lovo your tearj. Sometimes
when I think of tho feelings of a man who
has no one to weep over him, I count thos-j
tears of 3-ours, Janet, as the brightest gems 1
Sweet, this will bo a farewell nolo, for my
enemies will surely cany mo to Edinburgh,
where I shall meet in- doom. If 3-011 could
but tell the delight and the dread of writing
ti rcu. I t vet r-iih var whila I write. ab
tho baro thought fills mo with joy; and then
a fear follows that those poor words of mina
ma- fall in other hands bat yours. I choko
the outpourings of my poor heart, lest other
eyes but yours should read them, --ily sacred
lovo to bo prof aned by being laid open to
scoffers' fa a thought that fills mo w ith dread.
Tho ribald can find a jest in tho holiest of
matters, and to havo your sweet uamo made
n byword by tho careless would wound mo
keenly. But, of a surety, 1 shall find some
means of sending a few words tO-ou, and
perhaps you may hear concerning mo from
my enemies, who make a loud boast that
they havo crushed and takon prisoner Mont
roso and his army. Therefore, sweet, 'tis
only farewell for a fow days that I am writ
ing now. Only, Janet, do not flatter your
self with false hopes. There will bo no par
don for me. Nor do I desiro ono. Uontroso
doomed to die, I could not wish to live.
Heaven holp me if these words seom unloving
to my sweetheart. Bat my life has proven
so unlike my imaginings of it My sweets
have becomo bitter, my golden vMons black
realities; all my ends so different from my
beginnings. I am too near my death to think
of new possibilities. I can but go over tho
events of my life, and dream of my Janet!
Sweetheart, fare thea well, and griovo not
mightily over your truo lovor, J. S.
P. S. Tho sun' is shining brightly to-day,
Janet, and I long for ou with a consuming
longing. A littlo gust of wind, full of tho
fragrance of tho heather, has brought back
to mo memories of 3'ou. Tho glad days wo
spent together among tho heather, sweet! It
maddens mo to thin!: of them. How careless
and happy we were, and how bonny you
were! Janet, thoughts of joy, when tho soul
is overcast by sorrow, aro liko tho tortures of
Janet, in reviewing thoso graces in 3-ou
that I had loved I had often been in doubt as
to what manner of yours pleased me best. I
doubt no longer, for I know now that I loved
3-our manner most when 3-ou braved bolta
and bars and tho tyranny of m' enemies
(whom I fully forgive, even as I pray tho
Lord may forgivo me), and tho churiLhness
of rudo jailers, so that -ou could kiss mo
The jo- of it! Janet, 3-ou cannot imagine
what this glimpse of 3-ou has beon to mo.
Suro am I that there nover b rallied so
proud a condemned felon, nor ono with half
such just reason to rejoice. Sinco Janet her
fears forgotten camo to mo in my prison
cell, what matter fetters or aught that my
enemies can urgo against 1110? If all that
which their malice can invent be chronicled
to my disparagement, no ono will believe
aught that is bad, sinco Janet lassed mo!
"When 3 0:1 entered my cell perchanco 'ou
observed that I was tongue-tied, that no
words could force their wa3' to my lips, that
my e-es seemed dared and could not realize
that it was my dcaiest mistress s-tanding be
fore mi-. You wero o palo and wan, love,
3'our pitiful faco has haunted mo ever sinco.
Sweet, I am to dio; -cu know it. I swear
to 'ou that death has lost its bitterness sinco
I havo seen 3-ou. You cannot imagine how
tho thought that I never should seo 3ou more
has pursued me. Night and da-, since tho
disastrous da- when vo lost all, I havo
yearned for a glimpse of 3-ou, and 3-csteiday
you gavo it to me.
Sweetheart, who was to havo been my wife,
if it wero not for 3-ou I should feel right glad
that nry short jpan of lifo is nearly over.
Twenty-dxj-ears only have I lived, and havo
already seen the death of all I cared for.
I fear no death, not even that on tho scaf
fold, but I fear to carry about with mo into
tho next woild that great unassuaged desiro
tho desiro for 3011, Janet. I cannot shako it
oil; it o crpowers mc. ' It will outlast lifo, 1133-,
outlast death. Yea, on tho very judgment
da- 'twill bo you onJ3 that will bring peaco
to my tortured soul. Bravo heart! You havo
suffered so much for mo that I ecarco liko to
lay another sufferance on 3ou. 'Tis a great
boon I cravo of you no need to urgo you by
telling 3011 'tis tho last. I know 3-ou well,
Janet, and, knowing 3-ou, scarco hesitato to
cravo this last favor, which, if it bo not too
great, I pra3 3-ou grant
Janet, will 3-011 seo mo dio?
Not in the midst of the crowd, sweet, but in
como secluded spot, whence, when my last
moment comes, 3-ou will murmur through
your tears, "Dear soul! God givo hhnrcst.
He loved me well!"
To tell 3'ou how I lovo 3ou were impossible;
to make you understand what -ou havo been
to mo in sweetness and tenderness sinco tho
first day 1113- eyes fell on 3-ou, equally impos
sible, and to bid -ou good-by most impos
sible of tho threo. For though my pen ceaso
writing, I shall not ceaso bidding -ou fare
well until thQ ax severs my head from my
body (if, indeed, I am favored so much as to
dio by steel in lieu of rope, though it matters
but little to mc) ; even then a long '-good-by''

who can 1 end such language. Even now I
havo omitted to givo 3-011 thanks for 3our
sweet pleadings in 1113- behaV. 'Twas great
grief to think that you should thus humblo
3o:ns3lf for my worthless lifo's Rako; 3-et was
it gi i f mingLd with sweetness, for had 3ou
not braved all for mc? And nothing can hu
miliito ou, sweetheart; not even tho churl
ish denial v. hich tho boon 3011 craved met

for your courage. I lovo you for it; 'twas
The littlo sprig of rosemary, Janet, still lies
close to my Itcart Thcro will it lio until my
heart beat no more; and then, when I am
dead, methinks it must blossom out afresh
from my grave. "Was it not a lovo token from
you? Can such lovo as ours, or its emblems,
ever die? It must lw everlasting. A littlo
stir in my cell tells me they aro coming to
announco that I must soon mako ready to
die that death will claim me from Janet.
If I but dio as nobly as Montroso died, so
that my dearest heart, in days to come (when
sho can bear to talk of it), will narrate, her
voico thrilled with pain, and I hopo a little
pride, how her truo lover met his death! You
will be quite old then, Janet, 3-our soft brown
hair silvered, our eyes dimmed, 3our voico
quavering, and I shall be everlasting 3oung,
Janet, gone to 1113' death in tho fullness of U13
years. I wonder shall I havo long to wait for
ou, Janet? Are you going to leavo ine
lonely for long, 1113 bride?
Oh! Janet, I must now writo my last, last
words to 3ou. I feel that I have not lived my
lifo quite in vain, since ic lias been given to mo
to gain our love. 21y wholo being gives you
unutterable thanks for tho inestimable boon

tho infant king of Spain continues to

without counting extra donations to alms

Tho Cyitor and His Shell.'
Supposo that, placing two oyster shell?
in their natural position, wo insert a
piece of India rubber between tho valves
at tho point whero they aro hinged to
gether. If we now forcibly clcse the
shells by pressure, tho India rubber is
compressed. When wo release the press
uro of our fingers, the elasticity and re
coil of tho India rubber forces the valve3
apart. In such a fashion, then, doe3
nature provide for the constant main
tenance of the unclosed condition, Tha
"ligaments" of the shell aro natural
elastic pads existing at tho hinge line.
By their elasticity they keep the valves
unclosed. There is no strain involved in
the action, winch is a merely mechanical
one after all.
But when the more infrequent act of
closure has to be performed, theu mus
cular energy requires to be displayed. The
quick snap of the valves reminds us that
muscular exertion, even if necessitating
vital wear and tear, has its corresponding
advantage in tlic rapidity and efTcctive
ness with which it provides for protection
against the entrance of disagreeable or
noxious elements into the internr.1 ar
rangements cf oyster or mussel life.

splendent as a circus chariot and com
mands as much attention as it rolls along
a crowded street. But it is tho loading or
unloading that is particular!- an amuse

every way as conspicuous as a queen of
