They may talk of leva in a cottage, And bowers of trelllsed vine— Of nature bewltchlngly simple, And milkmaids half divine. They may talk of the pleasures of sleeping In the shade of a spreading tree, And a walk in the fields at morning, By the side of a footstep free. But give me a sly flirtation, By the light of a chandelier— With music to play in the pauses, And nobody very near; Or a seat on a silken sofa, With a glass of pure old wine. And mamma too blind to discover The small white hand in mine. Yonr love In a cottage is hungry, Yonr vine a nest for flies— Your milkmaid shocks the Qraoes, And simplicity talks of pies. You He down in your shady slumber, And wake with a bug in your ear, And the damsel that walks in the morning is shod like a mountaineer. True love is at home on a carpet, And mightily likes his ease; And true love has an oye for a dinner, And starves beneath shady trees. His wing is the fan of a lady. His foot's And his arrow is tipped with a Jewel, Ana shot from a silver sti lug. invisible thing, •SLY A WOMAN'S «MILE. Only a woman's smile, did I say?

Boautilul she looked as she lay there in quiet slumber, on the sofa in the drawing-room ol the Howard mansion, which is situated in the town of Deep dale, in the eastern partof Suffolk. Her complexion was of that marble white ness which contrasts so well with black hair; clear, defined oyebrows; long and heavy eyelashes; a full, led mouth; a straight delicate nose; a beautiful chin; iu fact, a face of exquisite loveliness.— She might have made a fit subject for a Madonna, only that there was too much pride, too little meekness in the contour or her fkce. "If she Is lovely in repose, what must she be when animation and activity light up tbat wonderful face? Ask him who stands by her; he will tell you her rare beauty, and her exquisite figure.— In short, she seems "a daughter of the gods, divinely fair." He who stands by ber side, and looks at ber so lovingly, is Guy Wilford, who loves her so passionately, devotedly, but who also loves her in vain; for he is the soil of a poor gentleman, while she is the daughter and heiress of the wealth iest man in Deepdale. Guy bad come to see old Mr. Howard ou some matters pertaining to his pro fession (that of a lawyer), and had been ushered into the drawing-room to await his appearance. There on the couch lay Helen Howard asleep. Guy stood look ing at her when Mr. Howard entered the room. He seemed considerably prised at witnessing such a tableau. He must have read tbe loveligbt in Guy's eyes, for he crossed over to him, laid his hand on his shoulder, and said in a kind voice. "Wilford, you love ray daugh ter? Ah, I kuow you do? Well, my boy, you have my permission to woo her; though whether you win her or not8he will decide. I know of no man to whom I would so readily give my daughter as to you. Money does not make the man in my estimation." And he smiled pleasantly upon per ceiving tho Joyous look on Guy's face as he caught bis hands, thanking him, and declaring his love for his daughter. "Well, well, Guy, I understand you," said Mr. Howard, whith a shake of his head. "But don't be so enthusiastic, you will arouso my lady, will withdraw before-she discovers presence." They left the room quietly; Helen sleeping on, all unconscious oi what had transpired. or Come, we cur * * * "Helen, do you love me? Will you be my wife?" Guy Wilford leaned toward her as be spoke, reaching out his hands; but she put them back coldly, saying: "Mr. Wil ford, if I bad anticipated a declaration of love, I should have excused myself from seeing you this afternoon. 1 have given no encouragement to warrant such a course; and you will excuse me, but I think you too presumptuous. I have always regarded you as a friend, but never supposed you would aspire to Helen Howard*« love—or money." "Helen—Mine Howard, you wrong me!" cried Guy, "I have naught but the purest love for you. I am sorry I have so displeased you by my presumption, but I oouId not, remain in uncertainty any longer; slnoe you look so unfavora bly upon my suit, I bid you farewell." And almost before she was aware of it, be was gone. She wished then that she could take back all the harsh words she had spok en. Not that he had shown any suffer ing or sorrow; but she herself experi enced a lonely geling, as if she had de prived herself of some good. And this was increased upon hearing of his de parture for Indie, where he would re main for five years or more. Her father guessed the cause of Guy Wilford's departure, man's nature, afld that it was Helen he loved, not her money; but he said noth ing, when she told him all about it. Helen was more brilliant than ever that season; notwithstanding wbicb,she was always possessed with a dissatisfied feeling, which seemed to mar all pleas ure. She could not define it. She had at first tried company as a remedy; but she soon discovered faults and flaws in those whom she had considered her friends. So at last she begged her father to take her abroad, which he did. Three years passed before they re turned to Deepdale. They had gone through nearly all the countries of the Continent, met With a great many new forma and faces, and yet Helen Howard was Helen Howard still. Old friends had again flocked around her, and she threatened te become as much a hello of old. He knew the Rosa Carrington cams to stay with her—a guahlng bright young lady ol eighteen or thereabout. One evening a large party had congregated on the la* n of the Howard mansion, carrying on a perfect tide of conversation, when Miss Rose exclaimed, "News—new«! who can guoss? Brother Harry tells a good piece of news. The one who guesses shall have the right ot the first introduction." "Half told, petite Rose," said Helen; "some one is coming. It must bo no loss rrtWPlMlf * J '"*rjri u T « disturb fnyîttikflPMtdÿ* G rami Mogul, to s equanimity so." Then there were cries of "Who? Who? We can never guess—let us know," Ac., before Rose would condescend to satisfy their cariosity. "Well, you all remember Guy Wil ford, who flourished in this town about five years ago, and who left very sud denly for India? It is than he, came back wealthy, polished, traveled—the handsomest man in the world, my brother says, with the form of an Apollo, the pride of Lucifer, the wealth of Croesus, th ill? What is tbe matter," she suddenly cried, as she happened to glance where Helen stood, and saw her reeling, and trying to support herself by the col less a person Helen are you umn. Guy Wilford was immediately forgot ton; all attention now turned to Helen. She soon recovered, excused herself on the plea of sickness, and retired to her room. "Why should I be so disturbed be cause Guy Wilford has come? I don't love him. Pshaw! I'm foolish." Sho laid herself down In her bed and tried to sleep, for she was weak and faint. She was now possessed with a longing to see Guy, which increased every day. She heard two weeks after that first announcement, when Rosa received Intelligence that Guy Wilford would accompany her brother to the ball, which was to be giv en by one of tbe leading families in the tow'n. She determlnd to be present. On the night of the ball Helen How ard stood before the mirror Just from the hands of her maid. Beautiful sho always was, but this night she was su perb. A slight flush lit up her usually pale face, and increased her loveliness tenfold. She was attired in a robe of dove color, draped with black lace, ber marble-white shoulders fairly gleaming against the costly fhbric. Her eyes al most outvied the diamonds on her neck and hair. She felt strangely uneasy. Upon entering tbe ball-room, Helen saw Guy Milford, the center of an ad miring group. Five yeara since last she saw him! Ah, me! how things have changed. more of him until abou* She had no chance to syeak to him till the latter partof the evening, when Rose Carrington brought him to her and in troduced them, thinking they had never met. She was glad he hurried her off to dauce; tor she felt almost faint now that she was at last with him again. They separated after the dance, Helen retiring Into a deep bay-window, com plaining of weariness. He soon returned, hardly expecting to find her alone, and requested her to ac in company him to the conservatory, to view a large cactus they had been dis cussing. Whilst there, almost befbro he knew it, be had her in his arms, telling her how he loved her, and aakiug her again tD become his wife. Oh, how happy and peaceful she felt at last! After five long years she had found contentment! They had much to say to each other; and though she danced little, and was in the company of him whom she had once termed presumptuous, she afterwards said that It the most pleasent even ing she had spent in five years. to it, of Rose Carrington often visits Mrs. Wil ford, and declares tbat she never saw such a case of "ioVOat first sight."

Didn't you rend it to me the other night, about this new millinery storebuving conceiv ed a new assortment of pitators from New York?" Ike nods. "There now, you needn't be skeered; ain't no revenue deceptive," Milliner smiles. "Madam, you have made a mistake. Our advertisement announces a new ar ticle of female apparel wilh which young ladies, whose bosoms are not fully de veloped, are enabled to beautify their forms, and render preceptible tbe affec tionate emotions of their loving bearts. Hence they are called palpitators." 4; La, me! your advertisement didn't say about barades enveloping female bosoms to show their notions of aflec tien. Now, if you denounce them as bosom pitators, you would be more in telligent. Well, I'm arter stomach pi tatoes, which I bave much affection for, besides my bosom is parallel enough, and I pretend in the future to keep it so without putting pitators in it anyhow.— Good-bye, Mrs. Milliner. Come, Ike, lot's tramp." ol a n a to MUSICAL. Many years ago there r as in the East ern part of Massachusetts a worthy D. D., mid although he was an eminently beuovolont man, and a good Christian, yet it must be confessed that he loved a good joke much bettor than even the most inveterate jokers. It was before church organs were much iu use; it so happened that(he choir of the church had recently purchased a double bass viol. Not far Jrom the church wts a large pasture, and in it u huge town bull. Ono hot Sabbath in the Summer he got out of the pasture, and came bel' lowing up the street. About the church there was plenty of untrodden grass ( green and good, and Mr. Bull stopped to try the quality; perchance to ascertain if its location had improved its flavor. At any rate, the doctor was iu the midst of his sermon when : "Boo-woo-woo" we.it the ball. The doctor paused, looked up at the singing seats, and, with a grave face, said : "I would thank the musicians not to tune their instruments during service; it annoys me very much." The people tittered, for they well knew what the real state of the case was. The minister went on again with his discourse, but be bad not proceeded far before another "boo-woo-woo" came from Mr. Bull. The parson paused once more, and again exclaimed : "I have twice already requested the musicians in the gallery not to tune their instruments during tbe sermon. I now particularly request Mr. Lafevor tuat he will not tune his double bass viol while I am preaching," This was too mneh. Mr. Lafevor got up, much agitated at the thought of speaking out in church, and stammered out: "It isn't me, Parson B-; it's th—that mischievous town bull !" a An Infantile Inpostoh.—C hicago boasts, among her flagrant successes, au infantile impostor.

He had an extraordinary fondness for great oxen, and took great pains to pos sess the choicest breeds; He liked a good horse, and appreciated the fine points of that anima]; but be was not a lover of the horse, says Mr. Curtis, "that he cared anyth ng for dogs, although, in his most active days of shooting, lie may have kept a spaniel or a pointer. But of all the brute creation, he loved the ox. Oxen were the pets of bis lurge agricultural tastes* and when he could not see and feed them he missed one of his greatest pleas ures. He had comedown one fine morn ing, after a night of pain, and was seated in one of the parlors that looked upon the lawn. There he had u herd of his best oxen driveu in front of the window, that he might look once more into their great gentle eyes, and &oe them crop the grass.'* Porter Wright, who was superinten dent of Mr. Webster's farm, gives the following account of the cattle : "He had one hundred and ten head of cattle when he had the most. He raised some, but, when Le went up into New Hampshire, he'd buy a great many; he'd buy all tbe handsome oxen he saw— twenty at a time some years. He was fonder of stock than any « tber part of a farm. Wheu he had friends with him, he would have some of his finest oxen yoked up and driven to the house, that they might see them. That is the way he saw them last from his window. It was not a large lot, but they were his best oxen.

Fifteen years ago John Sherman, of Ohio, a brother of Tecumseh Sherman, the General, first went into Congress.— At that time John Sherinan was worth about ¥2,000. Now look! The wealth of the very honorable John Sherman, of Ohio, is not to be computed. He has $75,000 in real estate in Mans field, Ohio; owns the greater part oT a street-railroad in Washington; has $700, 000 in bonds and money, besides having large interests in immense tracts of Western lands. Where did John Sherman get all this? During the fifteen years he has been in Congress his salary has never been more than $5,000 a year, and many years it has not beon so much as that. But we will concede that his income has been five thousand dollars each year, and that he has saved every cent ff it—which is beyond possibility—and then he would have but $75,000! Of course Senator John Sherman did not use any corrupt or dishonest means to make money while acting as a servant of the people! He is too loyal for that. Bui, nevertheles, the very Honorable John Sborman has accumulated hun dreds of thousands of dollars above his legitimate income, and somebody has been made so much poorer thereby.— They do say that railroad stocks, bonds, and Government lands bave something to do with these things sometimes.

Jijvmtltttrttl, a a a of a How to Test the Richness of Milk* It is of no little importance to have at hand a convenient and reliable mode for testing the richness of milk. This is usually done by the mere rule of guess 4 We will give a more reliable way, with in the reach of all, and one whereby any person may safely govern himself in de ciding upon which ol any number of milkmen ho will patronize, or of whieh of auy number of cows he will purchase. Procure any long glass vessel—a co logne bottle or a long phial. Take a narrow strip of paper, just the length from the neck to the bottom of the pi ial, and mark it off with one hundred lines at equal distancos; or, if more conven* lent, and to obtain greater exactness« into fifty lines, and count each as two and paste it upon the phial, so ns to di vide its longth into a hundred equal parts.^Fill it, to the highest mark, with milk fresh from the cow, and allow it to stand in a perpendicular position tweu ty-four hours. The number of spaces occupied by the cream will give you Its exact per cenlage in the milk, without any guess work. / Now, if you wish to carry the experi ment further, and ascertain the per cent Hgo of butter, sot the milk in a largo 200 ounces of dish, and collect, say 100 cream; make your butter in the by ascertaining the nuinbei of ounces of butter you have made. Thus, if one hundred ounces of oream givo five ouncesof butter,you will know that one hundred ounces of milk will give fivo ounces of cream. '•i cam Such experiments are worth being made, and made carefully. f In no other way can you know what you ba7e in a cow or milk, or what you are buying._ In this way, also, you may test the exact nutritive value of different kindsof milk from your cows—a very important mat ter. Farmers may derive much benefit by making a few simple experiment!», now and then. They need not interfere with any of tbe regular duties of tho farm; and nothing but a spirit of habit ual indolence of thought and action will keep them from doing so.
