From the great tire's birth to the last mom's breaking There were tempest, sunshine, fruit and frost. And the sea was calm or the sea was shaking His mighty main like the lion crossed, And ever this cry the heart was making Longing, loving, losing, lost. Forever the wild w ind wanders, crying.

And one worn song the fields are 6ighlng, 1 Sowing, growing, harvest, rest," And tho tired thought of the world, replying Like an echo to what ia last and lest, Murmurs ''Rest." A COSTLY BARGAIN. Two lovely women, sitting in a room that, in its luxurious adornments and furnishings, ils cheery sunshine and delicious faint perfume, was a fitting surrounding for its fair occupants, little Mrs. Deluiiiiue, dark and bewitching as a gipsy princess, in her pink cashmere dressing-gown, with its big square but tons of solid gold, and stately Myra Bellairs, fair as a blushing rose, with her haughty red mouth and bewilder ing violet bine-eyes that to everyone in the world were cold and serene, except 10 Ariuur lorrens, the only man in tho world who had ever won her love, and who had won it and held it, and made her absolutely hapiiv. But Myra and her chief friend, Lucy jjeituaine, were not uisctis-ung her lov er just at this niomeut, Jjtit the object 01 iiieir aniiuateti conversation lay care fully displayed on the rose silken couch. a marvellously magnificent dress of foamy lace. "And only thirty pounds! It seems incredible." Mrs. Delmaine caressed it with, her fair diamond hand. "It wast lie oreatest bargain I ever hean.1 of," Mvrasaid, in her low. exnuis- ite voice. "I havo always wanted a real lace dress, but 1 certainly never ex pected to fiiul one so cheap and so mag- miiccnt as this, it is worth a hundred and fifty pounds." "I think so," Mrs. Delmaine return ed. "How did you happen to secure such a wonderful" bargain, dear?" "I saw an advertisement in tho Queen, saying that a real lace dress must be disposed of at a groat sacrifice. So I went to tho address a very re spectable lodging house, in Blooms bury, and found the dress and the own er a pale, miserable-looking creature, but a lady born aud bred and she had been very beautiful once, I think." Mrs. Delmaine listened attentively. "What a charming story! Do con tinue, Myra, dear." "There is really very little to tell," she said. "I asked to be shown the dress, and she opened tho square cedar box, lined with satiu, that contained it, and I at oneo fell in love with it, although I took care not to let her know that.' Mrs. Delmaine laughed softly. "Of course not." "She told me it was the sole remain ing relic of former wealth. She said she had parted with everything. They had been wealthy French people, it seemed and really she was most re fined and ladylike but so ill and weak she could not speak much without coughing. This," and Myra laid her dainty, pearl kidded hand on the dress, "was her wedding-dress, and never worn but once; cost two hundred pounds when lace was not so expensive as now." "And yourgot it for less than a quar ter of its proper value. Mvra. how did you do it?'' 1 0" at 5 1 Myra lifted her eyebrows ia ft cofil posed way. .. "I simply told her what I would givo her, and although I knew she would think it a terrible sacrifice, she would also know that thirty pounda in cash was better than the useless garment in the box." "Of course she was not foolish enough to refuse it, but Myra it was a tremendous bargain for vou. "Of course," Miss Btllairs said, com placently, "but people in reduced cir cumstances must expect to make sacri fices. I could have given her a hundred pounds and still secured the dress cheap ly; but I preferred to do tho best J could." Her blue eyes rested in loving prido on the dress. 'And only' thirty pounds!" sighed ill's. Delmaine. "1 am afraiul am en vious, alyra: hv, the box alone is a treasure it is .worth five pounds at the least. "I rather admire it," Myra said, com placently. "Did you see the name on the inner lid? ' u-i-aceuse L)e L,tslai. Avec amour. Dieu vous garde? Just atnilo romantic, isn t it.'' ' A look of womanly sadness was tern porarily in Mrs. Delmaine's bright dark eyes. And pitiful Mvra Miss Bellairs arose to finish her call, while Mrs. Delmaine's deft-fingered maid returned the dress to its box. "I certainly feel very sorry for the poor thing, she saul, cokily, "but tlare say the money will do her a great oeai 01 goou. 1 nope Arthur will like it." She went down to her carriage, beau tiful, stately, high-bred as some young princess, and Arthur Torren's who was as much. at homo in Mrs. Delmaine's house as in his mother's, by virtue of cou3inship, took himself up from the lounge in the room adjoining that in which his cousin ana his betrothed, both profoundly unaware of his prox imity, had discussed the purchase. "Can it be possible, can it bo possi ble, that of all women in tho world, the woman 1 love is a grasping, unscrupu lous bargain-maker and that, too, towara a sister woman, sick ana in want? Can it bo possible?-' Ho went up and down, up and down the room, his rapid, emphatic steps at tracting Mrs. Delmaine's attention. "Arthur! Why, I did not hear you como in." "Nevertheless, I came in as I usually come, and havo had the pleasure of hearing the report ol islyra s success in cheating Madame Gracieuse De Lesley on the lace dress question. And you "Were either not brave enough or not honorable enough to brand the tran saction, the swindle it was." Mrs. Delmaine looked at him in sur prise. "Arthur! what do you mean? Why you are; " "Yes, I am if you mean astonished and indignant beyond measure. I would not havo thought Mvra could be guilty of such well, we won't speak of Twenty-four hours lator Mr. Toirens, reading his morning paper, uttered an exclamation of almost horror, for amongst tho news was a paragraph to the effect that a Madame Gracieuse Do Lesley, a most estimable lady of reduc ed circumstances, had committed sui cide, leaving as her reason a noto writ ten to her daughter, that she had paid away her last penny, received for the disposal of her wedding dres3, to satis fy her creditors that death was prefer able tQ starvation. And that the daugh ter etching home to her dead motEer was nearly heart-broken with grief and horror, and had not a friend or relative in the world. Arthur Ton-ens read it over with in tense interest. Then he ordered a han som, and drove to where fair littie Vi vian De Lesley met him, her bonnie blue eyes all disfigured with weeping, her rosebud of a mouth quivering like a baby's. "You must let mo bo your friend," he said so earnestly, so gravely, that she believed him and trusted him at once, and told him all her sorrowful story. And that same hour, Myra Bellairs wondered why her lover did not come to escort her "to select her antique jew elry. And again- -not many weeks after wards Myra learned that Arthur Tor rens wi.ul.l never escort her anywhere a :;n as !,er lover, for in binding up. a v.i.wiid her own fair, cruel hands had helped to make, he had found a truer, higher, womanhood, and gave his hon or and love into Vivian De Lesley's gen tle keeping. H lulo the lace dress, with the satin-lined box, whose inscription reads, "Avee amour. Dieu vous garde," never sees tho light of day, and a fair faced, haughty woman often cries over it as she thinks its price was Arthur Torrens and his love. The Eyesight of Readers. A writer in the Library Journal calls attention to the dangers which readers run of injuring their eyesight by the use of a bad light. He remarks that engravers, watchmakers, and all othera who use the eyes constantly in their work, take extra care to preserve them by getting the best possiblo light by dav, and using the best artificial light at night. The great army, of readers are careless, and have, sooner or later, to pay the penalty of their carelessness by giving up night work entirely, and sometimes reading, except at short intervals and under the best conditions, All departures from common type, making the matter more difficult for the eye to take in, increase the danger. Ihe magnitude of the physical labor of reading is not appreciated. A book of 500 pages, forty lines to tho page and fifty letters, to the line, contains 1,000, 000 of letters, all of which tho eye has to take in, identify and combine each with its neighbor. Yet many readers will go through such a book in a day. The task is one he would shrink from if he should stop to measure it before hand. Tho best position and best lights, clear type, plain inks, with the best paper of yellowish tints and abund ant space between the lines, atlord the best safeguards against harm. a3 Origin of "Boycotting." "In his lecture, James Redpath relat ed how the term 'Boycotting' first came to be coined and applied, lie had been breakfasting with Rev. John O'Mally, parish priest of the Lough Mask district at the time that Captain Boycott and the tenants of the estate of which he was agent were at daggers' points. 'I am troubled,' said Kedpath to Father O'Mally, 'to find an apt word by which to call this Land League, and I can't get at it. bupposo you try your hand at it, irather John.-" ' hy not can it Boycotting? replied t ather O Mally, promptly. That's tho idea, Father John!' said Kedpath, 'you have hit the nail on the head; soshall it be baptized. Now, Father John, you give the cue to our parishioners and I U post the chiefs of the Land League, and the thing is done. ' Ayer's Sarsaparilla is the proper remedy to take in the spring of the year to purify the blood, invigorate the system, .excite the lver to actiou, and restore the healthy one and vigor of the whole physical rne- hauisiii, which olten becomes impaired tiring the winter, by lack of open air ex ercise, and the want of sufficient care in the matter of diet. marlw2 say do [Correspondence of the News. INAUGURATION NOTES. BY ONE WHO WAS THERE. The great stand erected for the inauguration ceremonies was direct ly east of the east front of the Cap itol building. We watched the crowd gather, and at noon the mounted police coming up Pennsyl vania Avenue, through, tho Capitol grounds, rounding the curve of the hill and coming into view, were the forerunners of greater things. The nodding yellow crests of the mili tary guard of honor, from Ohio, were caught by the late sunshine, and looked beautiful, as they defiled in front of the great length of the snow white Capitol. Shouts went up from thousands, as the carriage, drawn by four bay horses, cama over the hill, in which were seated the President-elect and President Hayes. Next came the carriage with the Vice-President elect and Hon. Geo. H. Pendleton, and then the trim ship from the Navy-Yard. Sailors reclined on its deck, and stood aloft in the rigging. After the ship, soldiers in blue, sol diers in gray, scldiers in white and blue, soldiers in abundance, until they extended in rows of blue, red and gray from the central stand far out into the streets around. Mo tionless these soldier-boys stood, with their bayonets flashing like " siver threads," along tho continu ous file. When the venerable Fred Doug lass came out of the Senate Cham ber and ascended the main stand, erected over the steps of the central portion of the Capitol, followed by the President-elect, the waiting crowd cheered wildly. Gen. Gar field advanced to the front of the flag-draped elevation, where he was introduced by Senator Pendleton, and there was a little group around him that was the center of the gaze of many thousand anxious eyes. On the President's right were the Chief Justice and his associates, in gowns of black. Near by sat Gen. Hancock, and at his side could be distinguished the silvery hair and white cap frills of Gan. Garfield's aged mother. It is said that she is about eighty years old. I could not help thinking that any mother who had raised as good a son as she had, must be a grand, good woman, and that James A. ought to be proud of the old lady who wore the plain cot tage bonnet, and take pleasure in at tributing to his mother's influence and guidance all his success if? life, and that she ought to feel proud to see her son standing on the highest pinnacle of worldly greatness, as President of the United States of America. Mrs. Hayes' white bonnet shone like a star, a3 serenely as ever. Her true womanly face inspired respect, and seemed to light the way of the new comers to the White Housa I hope that we will all feel as proud of Mrs. Garfield on the 4th dav of March, lSSo, as we are of Mrs. Hayes to-day. After the oath was administered. President Garfield kissed the Bible, and then turned and kissed his mother and wife. We pitied poor Chester Arthur, as he had no wife to kiss. William English was not in attend ance. I suppose Mr. English couldn't get a free pass, and . there was no emigrant train goiDg direct to Washington, D. C. Or perhaps he was unable to foreclose a mort gage, in order to pay tho regular fare on the B. & O. E. R. Besides, he lost five cents down a crack in the floor. ''Who is there to mourn" for poor Bill English ? "Not one !" We saw a great many distinguish ed men during our three days' so journ, and in our strolling around we saw enough to convince us that some of them devote a great deal of time to the importunities of "John Barleycorn." There are somo very heavy drinkers in both Houses of Congress, men who are as straight a dart at home. I was credibly informed that some Congressmen were unable to leave their beds for weeks at a time on account of "malaria!" It seems as if the mem bers are like some of our folks at home they drink until their stom achs are all gone and they are un able to eat or drink anything, and have to lay by for a week or two. Thoy account for their condition with the general explanation, "mala laria." Malaria fiddlesticks ! It is more like -Mt-atics ! Our people ought not to countenance this fash ionable drinking. Tho physicians of Washington un derstand their business.- When they find an honorable Senator or Repre sentative suffering from too much rum, they tell him he has the "mala ria.'' They charge him an extra ten dollars, but he is willing to pay it to deceive his constituents, his family and friends. But we don't mean to that all Congressmen drink whis ky doubtless at least half of them not. We are proud to know that neither of our Ohio Senators drinks a of and Pendleton representative, of commanding influence. The administration of President Garfield starts out under very favor able circumstances. No American citizen should fail to see the Capitol of his country. Like the Capitol of ancient Rome, it stands upon a hill, commanding a view westward, one of the most beau tiful my eyes have ever seen. The Capitol is 751 feet in leDgtb, the greatest breadth 324 feet. The whole covers an area of three and one-half acres, or 153,112 square feet The next place that I saw, that was of special interest,was the little frame "Christian," or Campbellite Church, on Vermont Avenue, be tween N and O streets N. W., where President Garfield and family have heretofore attended divine services. Long may our new and trusted President livo to go to meeting at the little church aforesaid ! liquors.

Lilhe Tyler, a relative of Mr. William Tyler, the Postmaster at this place, has been an invalid for upward of six years. Doctors have termed her complaint heart disease. She has been treated by some of the most noted medical men in the coun try and has used all kinds of medi cines she could hear of, with no re lief. About a month ago Miss Tyler heard of a lady living in Connecti cut, who cured long standing dis eases by prayer. A letter was sent to this lady, and an answer received from the worker of miracles, appoint ing the day and the hour when Lil- lie and her friends should engage in prayer for her restoration to health. The lady came at lust, and the in valid's friends gathered at her bed side. This was about a week 8go. Miss Tyler was, at the time, too weak to raise her head from the pillow, and the company present in cluded her uncle and aunt, Mr. and and Mrs. Nathan Tyler, and her pastor, the Rev. Thomas Westcott At the appointed time the young lady and her assembled relatives en gaged in prayer. As remarkable as it may seem, before the hour had elapsed the young lady was suffi ciently recovered to sit up in bed, and has been rapidly improving ever since. She is to-day in such an im proved condition that she is able to ride out, and her relatives are con vinced that her complete cure will result "Facts are stubborn things," aud so are coughs and colds, bnt the lutter will in variably yield to Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup, which costs but 25 cents. His Solemn Warning. Tall Street Dally Sews.. "Yaas, there's money made in stocks, no doubt," said the old man, as, ha removed his hat and ran his fingers through his gray hair locks, "but it's a reesky bizness; it's suthia' like betting on whar lightning's going to strike, with the odds in favor of hitting the tree you stand under." "Then you never speculate?" "Never. I dig along the old farm, takin' one crop with another, and pull ing out stumps when I've nothing else to do; and if I don't make any great shakes, I haven't anything to worry over. I hed a puity solemn warning during the coal He excitement, and it cured ma o' speculaiin."' "How was that?" "Waal, I was a widower then; wife fell down the well and was drawed out as stiff as a poker. I had a big farm, lots of stock, and was called purty solid. We all got excited about ile, and all of less boles in search us dug more or of the stuff. All of a sudden a widder living about two miles from me found ile in a dozen.plaees on her farm. She was a widder with a bad nose, freckles all over her face, eyes on the squint, and built up like a camel. But when she struck ile that was a different thing. Old Deacon Spooner, who was a wid ower, got mashed right awav. Our preacher, who had lost his third wife, saw the spec. I thought it over and concluded she was an angel. I guess some six or seven of us begun courtin' that widder within sixteen hours after the first sight of ile. I know the pro cession reached from the gate to the house." "And you got her?1' "Not much I didn't, and that's what I'm thankful for. Somehow or other I couldn't work up the p'int That nose kinder stood in tho way every time was ready to pop the question. She acted like she wanted me, but Deacon Spooner got the best of all of us and they made a hitch." "And what?" "Nothing, except she had dosed that farm with a barrel of ile, and thus got a husband for herself and a home for her five children. When the news came out I was so cold along the backbone that they had to kiver me up with a boss blanket, and since that time I haven't had the nerve to buy eggs at seven cent a dozen and hoUt'cm for a rise."
