Seated one day at the organ,
I was weary and ill at ease,
And my fingers wandered idly
Over tie noisy keys.
I Jo not know what I was playing,
Or what I was dreaming then,
JJ.it I struck one chord of music
Like the sound of a great Amen.
It flooded the crimson twilight,
Like the close of an angel's psalm,
And it lay on ruy fevered spirit
With a touch of infinite calm.
It quieted paui and sorrow
Like love overcoming strife ;
It eemed the harmonious echo
From our discordant life.
It linked all perplexed meanings
Into one perfect peace,
And trembled away into silence
A if it were loth to cease.
1 have sought, but I seek it vainly,
That one lost chord divine.
That came from the soul of the organ,
And entered into mine.
It may be that death's bright angel
Will speak in that chord again ;
It may be that only in heaven.
I shall hear that grand amen.
Knin, rain, rain a hopeless day, with an
o.-terly wind and a pky of lead. The streets
were dirty and floppy, and muddy and mis
erable. Women hurried along with drag
gled skirts ; men plunged through the slip-j.i-ry
mud with Umbrellas and sulky faces.
A dark, dreary, miserable day ; and all of
ir gloom was reflecting in Miss Evelyn's
lac.-:-, as .'he stood looking out of her bou
doir window.
She was tall and stately, and beautifully
t'.ressed, too, this Miss Evelyn ; and young
that is to say, twenty-five, so she- need
hardly have worn that weary, miserable look
c:ie may think, if the weather was bad.
I'.fidos one would have thought it a fine
tliiiijr to be Miss Constance Evelyn, with a
f-Ttune of one huudred thousand dollars and
s'Kii a pretty room to nestle in on wet days.
Mi-a Evelyn dropped the curtains as the
little ormolu clock struck eleven, and began
walking up and down, up and down, with
the shadow in her face depeuing and dark
rnitiir every moment.
Presently she stopped before a great mir
ror that reflected her from top to toe, and
pa'-d long and fixedly at the pale, proud
face, black, glossy hair, and blue eyes that
gazed back.
"Am I handsome?" thought Miss Eve
lyn, '"or is it only the wretched flattery that

And, am I growing old?" thought Miss

She began walking up and down again,
li'-r thoughts wandering gloomily into tho
"And what a useless life it has been 1
hat a deceit society is ! What a shallow,
vajiid, empty mockery I I am weariness to
ni.vself, and a useless thing to my fellow-cri-atures.
If we are all born with a destiny
to accomplish, and work to do, it is time I
found mine out, and began it. What is an
old maid's mission, any way? To talk
Kandal, drink tea, and be snubbed? Come
in !"
There had been a modest rap at the door.
Mary, the housemaid, appeared.
"If you pleas, Miss, Mr. Undcrhill is in
tho drawing room."
Miss Evelyn started.
'Mr. I'nderhill? Such a morning. Well
go Juwn, Mary, and tell him I'll be there in
a moment."
J'he shook out her flowing morning robes,
( noothed her glossy braids, and slowly de
scend J. Mr. Underbill. Miss Evelyn's
lawyer, a sober elderly man, rose up at her
' Good morning, Miss Evelyn. Dreary
day. in't it ? You didn't expect a visitor
' Hardly," Miss Evelyn answered, lan
Etiilly. "But you are very welcome, Mr.
"Thank you, Miss Evelyn. I wish I
brought more welcome news."
r or the first time, now, the young lady
noticed the trouble in his face and voice.
"What is it ?" she asked quietly, "trou
k'e for me!"'
"'Yes, Mi Evelyn."
"About money matters, of course."
"You seem rather reluctant to tell it,
Mr. U nderhilL I beg you will think better
f me. Whatever it is, I shall be glad to
fc?ar it at once."
"I have cause to hesitate in telling it,der
young lady, for it is very unpleasant very,
nidoed. You remember the conditions of
Jour late guardian's will?"
"Perfectly, sir."
ill you have the goodness to repeat
ttemtome, Miss Evelyn?"
"Certainly. Ilia whole fortune one nrfn
dred thousand dollars, and this house, as it
stands, became mine unconditionally, pro
vided his nephew, supposed to be dead in
California, never appear something highly
improbable the fortune passed from me to
him at once."
"Precisely, Miss Evelyn. And there my
bad news begins."
"You mean the sephew is alive, after
She drew a fluttering breath turned a
littla pale and cold that was all.
"Is he here in the city?"
"I regret, for your sake, to say he is."
There was a pause. She sat very still
pale and cold her hands folded in her lap.
"You have seen him, of course, Mr. Un
derbill?" "Yes, Miss Evelyn, Mr. George Thome
came tomy office yesterday, and proved his
identity beyond the shadow of a doubt.
But he has acted very generously very no
bly, I must say. I told him the condition
of his uncle's will, and that I had no doubt
you were ready to abide by it. His answer
was : 'The young lady shall do as she pleas
es. If her conscience and her honor tell
her to resign it, of course I take it ; if not,
let her rest assured I shall never disturb her
in its possession.' I was surprised; very
few men in his position would say as much,
I assure you."
"He is very kind," said Miss Evelyn,
slowly, and whiter than marble, "and very
generous. Tell George j Thorne tell Mr.
Thorne, that my conscience and my honor
command me to resign his fortune without
a moment's delay. It is his from this
"But, my dear Miss Evelyn, hear roe,
There may be a compromise, a half, a quar
ter, of it may be retained;;! It is too much
for you to resign what has been yours forso
long, like this."
"Not a whit too much. There can be no
compromise ; I would not take a dollar of it,
hardly to save me from starving. It is his,
not mine. Do you think I could accept the
charity of a stranger? You ought to know
me better, Mr. Underbill.' '
Mr. Underbill bowed. lie did not un
derstand this sort of a thing himself. It
was not in his line. But he did understand
the flafhing of those blue eyes, the ringing
of that proud voice. He had seen both
before, and knew that the laws of Draco
were nothing to that fiat of Miss Evelyn.
"I shall depart to-day," said she, rising,
with a certain queenliness of bearing that
always overawed ordinary mortals. "Mr.
Thorne can take possession of his house and
fortune at once. Good day, Mr. Under-j
hill." ., '
The smile that accompanied the little
white hand was very sweet and gracious,
but the lawyer did not dare to question her.
She was gone a moment after, and was up
in her boudoir one more, looking out at
the slanting rain and gloomy sky, with
something altogether new to think about.
Miss Constance Evelyn disappeared very
suddenly from the brilliant society of which
she had been one of the most brilliant stars.
It was a nine-days wonder, this romantic
whirl of fortune ; and society was on the
qui rive to catch a gli.rpse of Mr. George
Thorne and make a hero of him : but Mr.
Thorne fought shy of society and didn't
show. They wondered hr dear five hun
dred friends what had become of her, poor
thing ! and went on dressing and dining.and
party-giving, and presently forgot she had
ever existed.
And all the men who had loved her, or
told her so, which is he same thing where
were they now ? One only, a simple heart
ed young millionaire of twenty-one, whom
the world had not yet quite spoiled, and
who viewed in fear and trembling the haugh
ty belle, wrote her an offer of his hand and
heart. Young Mr. Millionaire got an an
swer by return of post very civil, bat very
cold. "Miss Evelyn was much obliged to
him, but begged to decline."
Miss Evelyn was residing with a widow
lady somewhere in Edinburg. Miss Evelyn
had advertised for music pupils on such
reasonable terms that she had got some,
and in x few weeks had her hands full, and
was kept on the tread-mill from morning
till night She and that heartless society,
with which she had found so much fault,
were never likely to trouble each other
again. ne could nave Dorne ine jailing
off of "summer friends" without one pang,
but she could not bear that "he" should be
so utterly heartless. It was Mr. Chilling-
ham, who was handsome and an author,
and with whom she had been in love for
the past six months in spite of herself. She
had not wanted to love him she had fought
like a heroine against it but, ah ! who
could resist the seductive eloquence of those
deep, dark eyes, persuasive sweetness of
that earnest voice ? He was so diHerent
from other men so noble, so girled, so per
fect in his every manner that she could as
soon stopped the beating of her heart as
stopped its beating for htm. And she had
thought that he had loved her had he not
given ber every reason to think so, except
the three toor words. "I love you I And
now, and now.
Miss Evelyn never complained1 never
shirked her duties fought the battle of
lite bravely, and wore away to a shadow.
No weather kept her in doors, no cold con'
fined her to her bed she went on and gave
her lessons, and drudged and drudged, week
after week, until the good widow'- heart
ached to see her.
"You're killing yourself, that's what
you're doing, she said to her; look at
your feet, soaking wet and you with that
cold! why doa't you let your pupils wait
when the weather's not fit for a stray dog
to be out ! You'll be in your grave in six
months I"
Miss Erelyn laughed a mirthless sort of
laugh though.
"I don't know that that would be much
loss to the world, Mrs. Norris. But you
really fret yourself about me for nothing.
You don't know how1 strong I am. Nothing
hurts me."
It was a week after this that, coming to
the house of one of her wealthiest patrons,
Miss Evelyn found company in the parlor, a
gentleman talking to her pupil. The pupil
was a pretty young lady of eighteen the
gentleman, Mr. Chillingham. It was an
other wet morning and the musio teacher's
garments were dripping.
"Really, Miss Evelyn, I hardly expeeted
you in this shower," the young lady said,
not over-graciously, "I am engaged (his
morning, and don't think 1 shall take my
"Pray don't let me prevent you," said
Mr. Chillingham. "Miss Evelyn and I are
old friends, and I am more than happy to
meet her again."
He extended his hand ; she just touched
it. Her fingers like ice her hand cold and
still as marble told no tales. She could
almost forgive him his sudden appearance,
remembering that Mr. Chillingham remain
ed all through the lesson, sitting in a distant
corner holding a book, and furtively watch
ing tho musie teacher. It might have touch
ed any heart that cared for her the hagard
change in the once beautiful face. But the
book made a shield for Mr. Chillingham ;
and, besides there was no one there to see.
After that, Miss Evelyn met Mr. Chil
lingham very often at the house of her pret
ty pupiL But the old intimacy was not re
newed. Miss Evelyn was like flint colder
to him than any stone. She listened, if he
would persist in talking to her, and answer
ed in monosyllables. She declined haught
ily and peremptorily when he asked per
mission to see her home ; and three days
after wrote a note to the young lady, beg
ging to be excused from further attendance.
Two days after, coming home late in
the evening, fagged and nearly worn to
death with a hard day's work, she found a
visitor awaiting her in the parlor. Going
in, she saw to her surprise and anger, Mr.
Chillingham. She stood before him, more
queenly than in the days of old, haughtily
questioning with fixed blue eyes.
"Pardon me, Miss Evelyn, for this intru
sion," he said, coming forward ; "but you
shun me so persistently in other places,that
I had no alternative. You have given me
no chance to say what 1 have been longing
to say since I have found you that 1 love
you Constance, that I want you to be my
She stood in pale amaze, looking at him.
She had loved him she did loye him dear
er than life. She clasped her hands over
her fluttering heart, not able to speak.
"You are the noblest and bravest woman
I ever met," he went on "I thought so
long ago and loved you ;' but I never knew
it so fully, and never loved you so dearly as
since your generous renunciation of fortune.
It I waited for a time, Constance, it was
not that taj love ever faltered, but I wished
to see if you could brave adversity. Yon
have, heroically ; and now, loving you, I
think, better than man ever loved woman, I
ask you, Constance Evelyn, to be my wife."
He held out his arms. With a great sob,
she was caught and held to his true heart,
happy at last.
There was an hour's delicious quiet in the
widow's parlor. Then iMr. Chillingham,
holding both ner bands, and looking at her
earnestly, said, "But I have a revelation to
make, and pardon to crave, my queenly
Constance. I have deceived you I
"Deceived me !" she cried turning pale.
"Yes; my dear, and many others. My
name is not Chillingham !"
She sat looking at him white and turn
ing cold.
'I am George Chillingbam Thorne, your
guardian's nephew, long since supposed to
be dead in California, and I am the heart
less scamp who has robbed yon of your for
She gave a little rasping cry. Mr. G. C.
Thorne laughed in her face, went on : . I
did it with malice aforethought. I wanted
to try you as tftey try" gold in a crucible,
You have come out a thousand fold bright
er, and I am rewarded. Can you forgive
me ?"
I suppose she did, for she married him
and went back into society more regal and
uplifted than ever. And as marriage is the
ultimatum of womanly hopes and the acme
of early bliss, I presume I may leave ber,
The Two Farmers. A good story u
told of a couple of Farmers who lived a few
miles apart. One day one called on the
other happening round at dinner time. The
person called upon, by the way was a penu
rious old fellow. He was seated at the ta
ble enjoying his meaL The visitor drew up
to the stove, looking very wiotfully at the
farmer to ask him to dine. The old farmer
kept on eating.

OfR IlANDS.-The human hand is so beau
tifully formed, it has so fine a sensibility,
that sensibility governs its motions so cor
rectly, every effort of the will is answered
so instinctly, as if the hand itself were the
seat of the will ; its actions are so free, so
powerful and yet so delicate, that it seems
to possess a quality instinct in itself, and we
use it as we draw our breath, unconsciously,
and have lost all recollections of the feeble
and ill-directed efforts of its first exercises,
by which it has been perfected. In the
hand there are twenty-nine bones from the
mechanism of which result strength.mobility
and elasticity.' On the length, strength,
free lateral motion, and perfect mobility of
the thumb, depends the power of the hand,
its strength being equal to that of all the
fingers. Without the fleshy ball of the
thumb, the power of the' fingers would avail
nothing ; and accordingly the large ball form
ed by the muscles of the thumb is the
distinguishing character of the human hand.
A Negro's Idea or Liberal nr.
Bishop Thompson, in recently giving a
sketch of his experience among some of the
southern conferences, referred to a sermon
which he had heard from a colored preacher
upon the text. "It is more blessed to give
than' to receive." In the course of his
remarks the preacher said. "Ise known
many a church to die cou.se it oidn't give
enough, but I neber knowed a church to die
cause it give too much. Dey don't die dat
way. Bredern has any of you knowed a
church dat died cause it give too much ?
It ye do, just let me know, and I'll make a
pilgrimage to dat church, and I'll climb by
the soft light of the moon to its moss-covered
roof, and I'll stand there and lift my hands
to hebbrn and say, "Blessed are de dead dat
die in de Lord."
At the theatre one night John Phoenix
thought he saw an acquaintance sitting a
few seats in front, and asked a gentleman
between them to poke him with his cane.
When he turned around John discovered
his mistake. Fixing his attention on the
play, and affecting indifference of tho whole
affair, he left the man with the cane to set
tle the disturbance, and he, being wholly
without an excuse, there was, of course, a
udicrous and embarrassing scene, during
all of which Phoenix was profoundly inter
ested in the play. At last the man suited
indignantly : "Did you tell me to poke that
man with my stick ?" "Yes." "Aod what
did you want?" "I wanted to sec whether
you would poke him or not"
A brother editor wants an almanac that
will tell him when "next month," expires.
The cause of this "want" the editor says,
is because he has a number of accounts the
payment of which was promised next month

last, he wants the almanac to ascertain when
he may expect the fulfillment of said prom

The Kidneys are twoin number, situated at the'
upper part ot the loin, surrounded by fat. and
consisting of three parts, vis; th Anterior, th
Interior, and the Exterior.
The anterior absorbs Interior consist of tia
sues or veins, which serve as a deposit for tho
urine and convey it to the exterior. Tb xto-"
rior is a conductor also, terminating in a single
tube, and called the Ureter. The ureters ar oon-'
nected with th bladder.
The bladder is composed of vaiiou covering
r tissues, divided into parts, vis: the Upper, th
Lower, the Nervous, and the Mucous. Th upper
expels, th lower retains. Many hav a desire to'
urinate without the ability, others urinate with-"
out the ability to retaid. This frequently occur
in children.
To cure these affections, w must bring into ao
tion the muscles, which are engaged in their va
rious functions. If they ere neglected, Gravel or
Dropsy may ensue.

U. T, IIiLiiBOLO. Druggist:
Deae Sir: I Ave been a sufforer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, daring whfen time I have used various'
medicinal preparations, and been under the treat
ment ef the most eminent Physicians, experien
cing but little rolicf.
Having soon your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician in
regard to using yur Extract Bnchu.
I did this because 1 had used all kinds of a'd-
vertfied remedies, and had found them worthless.
and some quit injurious ; in fact, I despaired ef
ever getting well, and determined te use n rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of the fng'redient.
It was this that prompted nre to ire youT remedy.
As you advertised that ft was composed of buchu,
cubebs and juniper berries. It occurred to me aad
my physician as an excellent combination, and1,
ith his advice, after aa examination; of th arti
cle, and conulting aain With th druggist,!
Concluded to try it. f commenced its use about
eight months ago, at which time I was confined
to my room From tie first bottle I was astonish
ed and gratified at the beneficial effoct. and after
using ii three weeks was able to walk out. I folt
much lit writing you a full statement of my case
at that tinie but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to'
defer and see if it would effect a perfect care,
knowing then it would be of greater vado to yon
and tuore satisfactbry to me.
I am now abl to report that a cure is effected;
after using th remdy for five months.
I have not need any now for three months, ant
feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Your Bucau being devoid of any onpleasanf
taste and odor, a nice Unie and invigoratorof th)'
system, I do not mean to be' without it whenever
occasion may require its use in sttch affection.
