When I first knew Bob lie was in the war ,ifli4ce. A very good-natured fellow lie was tl in those dtlys, too. I lie was to have been manlied to one of the best and truest-helarted girls ever born. He had a decent in come. iHer parents were quite agreealnle, and nothing seeCmed to mar their hanlppinss. I recollect her ,myselfas it were only ti yesterday-a bright, faicinating little darling, with duisky brown hair, lind g an11d1 soft, liquid e,"es, so brlighit and sparklilng you conuld never guess the 8' color. One lmomenllt vol would vow " the were brown. The next, le pre pared to make soleminn nasseveration " they were gra1y. So petite and child like she was, so pretty, andl so fond f' of liuoir lio. lle, in Ii s turni, coni pletely idolizcud her, so that it seem ed, fomr oncle, true love would colndes conei to run ki 4llv in hi'eiics. t Au uncle ot Mohll's died and left him " a thou~id at year. The Wari Otliee ' clerki's liaie'1 W.as fixedil to take Il p:lace six lmonths afterwarllds.q Yet it was not to he, 1llu ni e Shirt molnth before the wed ding day, pretty., right-eyed ilorie n was taken nillddenly ill, landl lhob was robbedl of his hiealt' hIlst treasurcby that dreadi foe COlnsumptiolln. She died in Bob's arl, with her hand in his, an1d her bonnie head on i his shoulder. s Poor Boil! I shall never forget his grief ; it was souetlhing terrible at S the time. He made a rigid vow that lie would t never inlrry, and lie has kept it faith- r fully. t And now, althoung lie is only 30, t his hair is tinged with gray, and the lines in his face would make you fancy lie was nearer 50. I People who donl't know his sad a story wonder why that quiet, grave. looking Ilortescne hlat never married, 1 and thoughtless liarly Lawless says, "D)rnt it yon know, Blen (that's me), t your friend Fortescue is a capital fel. t low, but lie's a trifle too gloomy for t me, l1e'dl make an excelellnt hermit, I with those strange ileas of his on celibacy: Why don't lie start a cave on his own account I I don't believe lie's ever jolly, ot plays at billiards, or any thing like thlit, you know." But Harry is not a bad fellow. He's only a happy-go-hluky individual, who is always getting into trouble, and coming out of it right side upper most. He like the rest of the world, puts down Bob Fortescue as a gloomy melancholy misanthrope. But Bob is nothing of the kind. He only cherishes tie mnemory of the past and his poor lost love too 1'ondly to allow himself to again mix. in the gayety of stchthy. Whose hair is that chain made of that hle Wears t-and whose portrait does that massive gold locket contain I attalhod to it f And let os take one peep at his little diawing-room. To Whomili, think ynn, did that piano belong, and whose the pile of music i I mention the mnsic because it is Soprano music, and Bob's voice is still a good, rich baritone. Can you iot guess I Ah ! you can I know you can ! The hair, the portrait, the piano, and the music, were his dear little dark eyed Florries; and Bob values these treasures more than ever abbot vanlued the most sacred relies olf a de parted saint, or miser loved his pre ciolls hoarded gold. So, you see, Bob has still these son renirs of the past left to conllsole hlis wounded heart; and, after all, lie en joys life in his quiet way quite as well as any other individual who hIas Snever known sorrow. Perhaps 30on may shake your head, and say that hlie cannot find much I pleasure in the memories of the past, e and must be continually lamenting the happy days lie spent before his -great sorrow overtook him. Take as an ezamnple, Bob Fortescne. Yet, every Sunday does lie visit a tastefili grave in a quiet little church yard, not a huudred miles from Lou. don. r A pretty little resting-place it is, overgrown with flowers, that are evidently tended with :ehalou care with a lheat little cross at the fool. I and a little tombstone at the head, on which rests the last iinaitortelle Bob placed there. Every Sunlday does Bob visit that 1: retired spot, and always Idoes he s leave a bouquet of fresh-cut flwers ; tl for Florrie loed loved fowers, and tloweits a are the only offerings he can make to II her he! loved so dearly, who now s4 sleeps beIeath the soft turf. it And if becaes there is no bright a smile, or there are no preltty Votl ai nI to thank him as in the golden days of tl yore, Blob returns lhome sald and| lone ly, and perhaps plays over on the sl piano whose keys will never IIlmore echo to her touch, her favorite air. % think you that, if his eyes do fill, and t a great lump does seem to rise in - his t throat-thinlk you that lie duoes not li do so with a chastened heIart, anad aa fervent prayer of thankfuilless that si he has still the memory of the past wherewith to comfltort his wounided s heart I And does he not ind in that si weekly visit more real ha1ppiness' than either you or I could ill the most entrancing pleasure with which this I gay and thollghtless world abiounll ? b I an certain lie does ; andl if you h wish to know why, I will tell you. i One evening I called on Bob nn- 1i expectedly. His servant told me I li shonld find himt in the drawing-roon. I As I never stalnd on ceremlUony with, I hitm, I Inade my way to that apart- tI lent, and wasalout to enter la nnU l nounced, wheun I stopped suddenly c on the threshold. tl Bob was sitting at the piano wheln I reached the door of the room, which 41 was standing open, but he never noticed me. He sat there alone, e dreamilv gazing at vacancy, appar- d antly absorbed in his own secret s thoughts. I wondered whether they I were sad or happy. I did lnot enter C the room, but paused unconsciously, o I knew not why. u Presently his hand wandered over sI the ivory keys; softly they echoed to I his masterly touch. I knew those tl chords; I had heard them nany a ti time and oft a few years before. ri 'Twas the song she used to sing; ; and as Bob sat there, seemingly n dreaming of the past, a soft ray of II the sitting sun stole gently through si the conservatory window, setting on " his dreamy face lighting it up witlt a to golden halo. As it did so, Bob smiled. tl I vow to you that if ever an angelic it smile lit up the face of mortal man, so n was Bob's lit up then. j Perhaps, I thought as his hand ti wantdered over the keys, hle was list- 'E ening for her voice in the spirt land d far away-ay, and may be he heard it, too ! Who knows I lie may lare dlone so ; I cannot tell; but Ican say this muich-I did not take one step further into that riomr. I instinctively felt I had no right to be there ; so, gently and ii quietly turning, I stole softly on tip. toe down the stairs, took miy hat, and ' said to the servant, "Do not tell your I. li;aster I have heen here this evening. I will call again to.morrow." t The man looked surlprised, but res pectfully nodded assent. t So I left the house, feeling that I had no right to intrude on Bob at ellth a moment. Alh, Bob-dear old Bob-I know a you are happy, and that, were this whole world's riches laid at your feet, they could not purchase for you such c real pure happiness as yon feel during those sacred mniintes, when your gen tie soul wanders into spirit land And that, gentle reader, is my story. A very little story, is it not ?-and perhaps youl will think little of it now you haove read it. It's only an old reminiscence raked ip from tile melnory of the past. There is a dear old ballad of lBalfe's, the last line of which often recalls its truth to me. I dare say yon all know the bftllad i refer to; the last line ""Memory is the oily joy' That grief can call its ow.i' So poor Bob Fortescue has fonund it; so, perIhaps, lhave thousands of oth ers. AnouT MARRIAOB--TO TilHE MEN.- A physician writes thle following sen sible advice My profession has tlhrown mne among women of all clas ses, anid my eeiperience teaches nme that God never gave man a greater Sproof of his love than to place womnan here ithl him. My advice is: Go Spropose to the most sensible girl you know. If she says yes, tell her how Smuch ytur inconle is, from what source t derioved, and tell her you will divite Sthe last shlilling with her, and love her with all your heart in the bargain. SAnd then keep your promise. My word for it, she will live within your Sincome, and to your last hour you Swill regret that you didn't marry sooner. Gentlemen, doll't worry about female extravagance and femi nine nutruth. Just you be true to her, love her sincerely, and don't be chary in telling her so, and a more fonld, faithful foolish slave you will niever meet inywhlere. You won't Sdeserve her, I know, bit she will Snever know it. Now throw aside . pride and selfishness, and see what , will come of it. w A FaE CotheTsr--An old cutmud Sgeo was sunning himself onl tile Ipost Sofice steps yesterday forenoon when Sa lady came along, having a letter in ShIler hand. She looked up and down tile bnilding, hesitated, anid asked the man t , "Where do yoa mail your letters t lhere 1" "I always mail mine inside the is building," le calmly replied, "but you can do as you please about it there's no law to compel you to t" a The look she gave him would have Sknocked a street car off the track. * Detroit Free Pres. e A cir cular saw- a proverb thbt gocs the round of sociely.
