I have two little anjjels wsiiting for me On the beautiful banks of the crystal sea; Not impatiently wait ray darlings there, For smiles light up their brows so fair; And their little harps ring out so clear, So soothingly sweet to faith's listening ear, And they live in the smile of tho Savior's love, Who so early called my darlings above. I have two little angels waiting for me On the beautiful banks of the crystal sea; Forever free from sorrow and pain, Spotless and pure from all earthly stain; Never in erring paths to rove Safe iu the bosom of Infinite love, Evermore, evermore walking in light, Thooe beautiful angels robed iu white. I have two little angels waiting for me On the beautiful banks of the orystal sea; When my weary heart is throbbing with pain, And 1 fain would clasp my darlings again, I look away from this earthly strand' To the beautiful fields of the "Better Land." I will think of the angels waiting theio, And offer to Qod a thankful prayer. t have two little angels to welcome me When I too shall, stand by the crystal sea; When the Great Refiner His image may trace In the heart lie has won by His saving grace, And in robes of Christ's own righteousness drest.

" II. concluded : Send Roy to me," said Doctor Strat- ton to a servant. And shortly Roy appeared! I started to go to Doctor John Dol trey's yesterday," said the old gentle man to his son. "but met him at Grof- ton. He has not been at home for a couple of weeks. Zounds ! Sir, why did you not tell me you had not met him ?" Roy muttered eonie reply that was not intelligible. "As it chanced, Miss Doltrey was with him," pursued Doctor Stratton, not heeding his son. "She was quite unwell, but ahem 1" Evidently Doctor Stratton had somc thinq; on his mind "Go on. sir," said Roy quietly. "She and Doctor John Doltrey and I fixed up the matter."- "What!" exclaimed Roy. "You are to be jiarried next week." Roy sprang to his feet. "Why, I thought I supposed I Intended," he stammered. "Silence!" interrupted his father. "You told me that you were willing she should become Mrs. Roy Stratton, and I took you at your word." The old gentleman, now that he had unburdened his mind, was as cool as ever. "Richard was himself aain." "The wedding will, as I said, be next week. The word and honor of the Strattons are pledged, and you will pre pare." . "But, father" "Not another word. You understand me. I dismiss the subject. You told me you were willing." And Doctor Strafcton resumed his pa per with an air that said he would not speak another word. Roy was coin pellfd to be satisfied. Well, the affair had not been managed as he would have wished, but still he could not help feeling blissful. Rose Doltrey to be his wife! Of course Doc tor Doltrey and his father had arranged the affair, but Roy hoped that it would be pleasant to her. And she must have been taken ill very suddenly,he thought, for five days before he had left her at her auut's in good health. She could never have gone to Pittsburgh at all. Roy prepared for the wedding. And Tues'lay evening of the next week, found Doctor Stratton and Roy walking up the avenue in front of Dr. Johu Doltrey's residence "I will go to John's office," said Dr. Stratton, "and you can be shown into the parlor. Tuey are expecting us." Roy's heart was beating tumultuons ly. lie would soon behold Rose, his Rose. A servaut ushered him into the par lor and retired. A woman, tall, angu lar. a genuine old maid, rose to' meet him. - ' And this is my Roy," she said gush ingly. "Welcome!" "What !" cried Rry. "My betrothed," she returned. "I repeat welcome !" "There must be some mistake," gasp ed Roy. "Who are you ?" "Tell me first,nre you Roy Stratton?'' "I am." "Then there is no mistake, for I am Miss Rose Doltrey." . "Madam, I fear there is," said the bewildered Roy. "No, there is not," cried the lady. "I love you already, and will fly to your arms." But Roy suddenly disappeared through the door. "Madam, there is a mistake," he shouted back. "Good-bye." "If I stay, she'll marrv me against my will," he said to himself as he mao good time down the avenue. " 'i' The next day when Dr. Stratton Im met him, there was a stormy scene. ' "Humph !" ejaculated tho Doetor$n grily. i.' "Yes," rejoiued Roy, equally angry,, "You have made a fool of mo." "You've made a fool of us both."..-r; "Doltrey will never forgive us.". : "I hope he won't?" You said you toere trilling, &nx way." "I didn't. I never saw your old.maiJ. There is a mistake." "Humph !" foamed Dr. Stratton,daVa- ins his spectacles on the floor. , Tl for a uiiuute Lis anger was top LCa4j But he found his tongue. 'Old maid !' he shouted. 'She is not." "She is." . ' . "Weil she's handsome, any how." She isivt." i 'I, zounds !" you shall marry her at any rate." "I won't " I. "Humph!" "Yes." "You mock me. Villain, out of my sight. I am the victim of base ingrati tude. Begone!" Roy left his presence. For a day or two there was coldness between the two. But Roy soon got in a good humor.r And Dr. Stratton could not withstand good humored Roy. He chose to soem to forget that young gentleman's offen ding. The sul ject of the Doltrcys was? a forbidden one, however. A month slipped by. Three months sped away. A half year was gone. Roy had not heard from his Rose. A sad thought became his. Would he ever behold her again ? He feared not. She had said that he might call on her at Doltrey place at the end of the year. But he felt that he would never dare go there now, alter what had happened Almost a year had passed since Roy had beheld Rose Doltrey, when one evening his father met him as he was coming out of the house. The old gen tleman's face wore an unusually serious look. "Come into the library, Roy," he sakt.' Roy followed him. ' : "My dear son," he sid mournfully. "I have to inform you that owing to an unlucky speculation of mine, we are bankrupt." It was unwelcome news, but Roy bore it like a man. "I am young and strong," he 9aid bravely. Misfortunes never come singly. The very next morning Roy was summoned into his father's bedroom. The old gentleman was lying prostrate upon h; coucn. "Roy," he said, "my lower limbs Ir completely paralysed 1 fenowr the Iwillbvtf.frr year,, b.U HjfW aref now sold. ae perfectly helpless. My mfsfortnAcs1, monetary aaairs nave caused tnis j Roy mourned more over this tha wle did over the loss of the money. Bit he ftrove to talk cheerfully to his father. During their conversation Doctor Strat ton asked him to telegraph for Doctor John Doltrey. And Roy did so soon as possible, af ter he left his father's side. That same evening Doctor Doltrey came and re mained till the next day. Roy chose not to see him. After Dr. Doltrey was gone, Roy's father snt for him to come to his room "Koy," said Doctor Stratton, "I want yon to marry Rose Doltrey." Roy was startled. But his father pre sented the matter to him in a forcible manner, telling him they must starve unless he married well. "Besides I have set my heart on this matter," Doctor Stratton concluded, "and I helieve if you refuse, it will be the death of me." ' That last argument forced Roy to consent as formerly to a compromise. He promised that he would go and con sult Miss Doltrey upon tho subject. He had a very strong hope that she. would refuse to consent to the proposed ar ranfjement. "You will have to apologize to Doc tor John Doltrey," said Doctor Strat ton ; "but he is cood-natured, and will foraive yon, I thiuk." Behold Roy once more at the entrance or the Doltrey residence He would be m despair if he did not hope that his reception would be a very cold one. But even as it. is he fears, for the vision of the tall Miss Doltrey rushing toward him with outstretched arms, rises be fore him. He rang and was ushered in. At the parlor door he paused. His heart boun ded, his pulses thrilled, his veins felt like C re. Before him was a beautiful creature, the Rose Doltrey that' he lov ed. For a moment he stood bewilder ed; then he forgot all but that. ' "Rose, my Rose!" he cried, "I iove you!" Dfflr reader, you may be surprised, but Roy succeeded in inducing Rose to consent to making the attempt of agree ably surprising his father. She loved him, and Doctor Doltrey Jiciug willing'; they were married immediately. The fact is Doctor Stratton had smoothed the way with him. It was the niece this time instead of the sister, aud" he had consented that Roy might make the attempt to win her love. He hud jt al ready, and the result is seen. Pooi Mins Rose, his sister, wa dead. She had died six months previously, leaving all of her fortune to her niece, named Rose as well as herself.' Well, Rov returned home with his bride. He found his father sitting in an easy-chair in the library. J "This is Mrs. Roy Stratton.duce Miss Rose Doltrey," said Roy. Then there was a mutual surprise. Doctor Stratton sprang to his' feet and began to caper around the apartment. "Humph !" he exclaimed, .good for you, Roy. I'll give you fifty thousand dollars with which to begin life." "But I thought you were bankrupt," said Roy. "Ruukrupl! humbug! just like my paralysis. I thought I'd bring you to terms. Humph !" And Doctor Stratton kissed Rose on both checks Roy laughed. "But lather," said Roy presently, "why didn't you tell me that it was Rose Doltrey, the niece, and not Rose Dol trey the sifter of Doctor Doltrey, whom you wanted me to many this time?" . "Humph ! Didn't I ?" -v ..No "Yon might have told me that Miss Rose Doltrey, the eldpr, was dead You knew it, didn't you ?"' Doctor Stratton rubbed the bald spot on his head vigorously. "Humph!" he returned. "Ye9, I know it! Didn't I tell youV" "If you had told me you might have saved your little plot, for I had beheld Ross before and loved her." "Humph!" "Yes!" . Good bye, reader, in a moment.

English thorn is the fashionable wo.od for sticks and umbrella hatuUcs. Lizard gre?n seems to he the most fashionable of colors. It is universally worn. Italian kids are beginning to be worn very extensively Here, on account of their cheapness. V Low shoes and stockings of gorgeous colors and patterns are to be worn by gentlemen this Summer. : Plain white note paper, very thick and heavy, with a crest in clack outline, is now declared to be the proper thing. Very pretty chatelaines and their at tachments are now made of vulcanized India rubber, oi name n ted with gold. . Suits of purplish-blue English water proof, with buttons of oxydized silver, are the proper castume fur long sea voy ages. Pale blue camel's hair suits, embroid ered. with white and edged with white yak lace, are imported for carriage cos tutnes. ' Pink and Hue silk vests trimmed with applique embroidery and Valencienses lace, are to be worn over white dresses for Summer. Fashion and common sense now go hand in hand as regards feminine foot .gear. The broader the sole the more stylish the boot. ' A new style of embroidery is intro duced upon evening dress that of ara besque patterns worked in white satin beads.

It is said he prefers to execute orders for American ladies, above all others, be cause they never dispute his charges. For full dress gentlemen wear instead of a watch chain a. fob ribbon after the fashion of their grandfathers with a seal attached, the older looking the better. This taste for old jewelry is in opposi tion to shoddyism, the olject being to show that tho wearer is not the first of his family who ever possessed any jew elry. There have been two marked improve ments made by glove manufacturers. The first consists in riveting the buttons to the kid, instead of sewtng them on Tho second is in a lock stitch in seam ing up, instead of the 'old-fashioned whipping or overseaming. Tho new stitch is a locked over-seam smooth stitch, almost indestructible, and certain ly "unrippable;" if such a word may be coined. Two, three and four buttons are worn on street gloves ; from five to eight on those for evening dress. Seam less kid glove are no longer worn to any extent. Fashion has sealed their fate.

If they are kept in smaller paddocks they must be supplied with lood by artificial means. A stone wall of three or four feet will generally keep them in Some farmers have adop ted an incubator, and by its mean3 have raised a considerable number of young bird3, which at the age of a month are worth 10 each. Others allow the birds to hatch their own eggs. The feathers (which are plucked in a narrow pen into which the birds are euticed one by one) vary in quality and price according to t he age of the bird, and the portion of the body from which they are plucked, some of the best being worth about 45 per pound. The farming of the ostrich if well and carefully conducted upon a suitable farm with the necessary enclosures aud plenty of feed, is found to bo very profitable ; and it is, now becoming quite a common thing among the sheep farmers to keep ostriches as well as sheep ; but the birds are easily injured a slight blow from a stone or stick will break their legs, in which case the bird inevitably dies. The cock birds, whose plumage is black and white, are often exceedingly fierce, especially at or after pairing sea son, when it is dangerous for a man on foot to approach them, as they will at once give chase ; when they overtake the fugitive they knock him down with their foot, as a man would with his fist, and strike and trample their victim on the ground, often inflicting very serious in juries. A Lost Patient and a Bad PbysU cian. A foreign scientific periodical relates this suggestive story : Some time since a lady called upon a celebrated occulint. in order to consult him on account of her eyes, complaining that their power of vision had .of late considerably diminished." At a glaiice rank amr wcamrityjoot'tttiOaiLeyeCvJ shook his heud, and thought the treat ment would require much time, as thera was reason to fear amaurosis in her case, He roust advise her, first of ad, that as she had informed him she was residing a considerable distance in the country, she mus-t move into the city at once, aud thus enable him to see her frequently, if possible daily. The lady then .rented an elegant man sion ; moved into the city, and the phy sician was punctual in his attendance He prescribed this and that, and thus days run into weeks and weeks into months. The cure, however, was Btill coming. The physician tried to console her. . One day the patient hit upon a curi ous scheme, and she waited not long to carry it into effect. She procured for herself a very old and poor attire, put a hood of tremen dous size upon her head, took au old umbrella and a market basket in her hand, and in these habiliments she visi ted the physician, selecting for the pur pose a very rainv day. She had so well succeeded in distorting and disguis herself that the eye even of a lover could scarcely have recognized her. She was obliged to wait a long time in the ante room of the physician, with many others, who, like her, were seeking relief. At last her turn came. . "Well,my good woman, what have you to complain of? "Very bad eyes, doctor," she answer ed He took her to the light, looked into her eyes, but failed to recognize his pa tient. Shrugging his shoulders, he said "Your eyes are well enough." "Well ?" she said. "Yes; I know what 1 am saying." 'But I have been told that I was get ting the a a forget how it is called." "Amaurosis?" "Yes ; that is it, doctor." "Don't you; let' them make you believe any such, .nonsense, ' Your physician is an ass!"" ' An ?" "Yes, an ass I Tell him boldly that I said so." ' The lady now arose, and in her cjs tomary voice, said, "Sir, you are my physician; don't you know mo?" Tue fuce the sage counsellor made is easier to imagine than to describe. "Gracious madame," he commenced to stammer au "apology, but the lady would not listen him, and left him in dignantly. ,, She "never saw the gentle man any more. To lieep IMovvsJioni llustins.
