Twes milkinug time, and the cows came up Froun the meadluows sweet with clover, And stood in the lane, while pretty Jane Sy Had a quiet chat witb the drover Such a quiet chat that it scarcely seemed That a singlle word wasu siken; While a magic spell with night dews fell, And the rhyme of song was spoken. h The cattle stood at the lovers' side, Without any .how of vetiml, . As though impressed that a five-bar rest ii Was a part of their rest-ration. A And as Jane litenedl to the notes that came ai Right under the bars slid over, Her heart took winllg, the silly thing, Is And nestled up clse to the drover. II io She heard hint say his home was poor, That hee'l nothing but love to give her: And she smiled toutent, as though love had spet - - Every arrow he had in his quiver, o And bshe smiled content, when-the evening air With voices of birds are ringing, Asd her lips conteaned that a lowly nest 8o-~iiUi never prevent her singing. tl 8o over the amrs the lovers lean, In the joy of their sweet communion; And their looks declaredl that poverty ne'er Shall be a bar to their union; O, sweetest music, go thread youer rhymesl. ?Now under the bar satd over!

It was perfectly delightful every way. Mr. Granville posessed none ( but high-bred, intelligent frienda, and the Mises Meltons were treat- d ed acoordingly. The mnsic was heavenly, and u from her seat where abe sat like a queen in state, Rose watched the a handanme host, who had bowed low i over her hand when lie was intro duced-watched him as, in his quiet, f self-t.possaeaed manner, he went amnotng his guests. c iHer heart was beating; would he; t oh! would he ask her for the first dlance, or would he go among the c groups of stylish ladies froea the city, any of whom would be so hon ored by his attentiont And then Rose saw Mr. Gran. ville go straight across the room, right by her, and bow slowly to Bell as he said a few words and offered her his arm. Bell! Bell to lead the grand quad. rille! Bell on Lionel Granville's c arimi, the observed of all obsrververs -an fair an a sea nymph, and no 1 graceful,so sweetly unconscious of her radiant beauty! Rose sat gloomily through the I first quadrille, aml'wateled Lionel's pale, hamndsone face as lie bent it over Bell's golden curls, his ardent, admniring eyes, that looked so eager. ly into the sweet, girlish face, that others beside Bose noted his atten tion. Then the dance over, Lionel gave Bell his arm. "That has been a delightful quadl rille, Miss Melton. By the way, did 3.ou know I have something that belongs to your They had reached Rose's chair by this time, and Bell turned laughing. ly to him. "Something of mine!

But the invalid mothehe's a NB long horne amid the luarils at Fernle'y Court, and Bell is Lhapp than the birds that slog in the trees of the big old perk. -v A family while at the breakfast table one morning pledged to ob serve the strictest veracity for that day. A member of the family tells the "consequence" in a commuml cation to the -Intelllgeseer: As a first fruit of the resolve, we asked the one who had suggested it: "WhaTt made you so late at break fast this morningF She hesitated, began with, "Be cause I couldu't"-and then, true to her compact, said: "The truth is, I was lay sad didn't burry, or 1 might have been down long ago." Presently another one remarked that she had been very cold, add ing: ,"I never was so cold in my life.' An inquiring look caused the last sp.ealer to modify this statemeet instantly with: "Oh, I don't mean that! Of course I've been much colder many times, and I don't think it was so cold after all." A third remark to the effect that ",Miss So-and so was the homeliest girl in the city," was recalled as soon as made, the speaker beig compelled to own that Miss sBud. so was only rather plain lnstead of excessively homely. So it went on throughout the day, causing much merriment, wiubk was good-naturedly aeaspted by the sulbjects, and giving rise to e-s. stunt corrections in the Interest of truth. One thing became moreand more nsurprising, however, to eaeb oe of t us. and that was the amount of ant/ ling downl which our most areless statements demanded under Itis new rule. t The "e of AM.
