For the Enterprise.
The beautiful Summer ia ended
The Sells and the forests now tell!
Green, yellow, and bl own, are all blended,
t Aai naturostesis whispering fnrw)L ''"
The birds are all gathered in crowds,
And send forth a diige for the leaves,
That" fall as the dark 'railing clouds f i C I
Are borne through the heavens in reefa.
. i' ' ..II 1 1
The flowers now shrink from the fiost,
And the insects retire to sleep; , , , ,
While the beauty of earth forever seems lost,
And the wind o'er the ruins to weep,
Like the voice ol a friend that stands by
And mourns o'er the deutli-bed in gloom
While rain-drops, the tears or the sky,
Fall down on the head of each bloom.
Now slowly, and sadly, the trees ..'
For wintery hours prepare ;
And colder and colder each bieeze,
Till stript of their folhige bare.
Oh ! I sigh as I look o'er the scene,
Prophetic of man's own decay,
For he fudee like the foliage green
How soon he is withered away I ,
But yet, it is sweet consolation,
To know thnt the storm and the rain, .
Though they bring for awhile desolation,
ill restore u the sunshine again.
And oh ! Winter is not all dreary,
Foi whoin bis stormiest nighl,
Ol'the (ire-side has ever grown weary f
I turn to its charms, with delight I
'Tie nn Eden of social enjoyment,
' From which, there is Bone that would part ; i
When we rest from every employment,
And friendship entwines round each heirtl
Then let the fierce storms l. uilly blow,
Though we sigh fur the spring of the year ;
For we cannot but welcome the snow,
And this then should solace einh cure.
Second Love.
Tlio November afternoon was darken.
hi"; into nilit ul l'luieiitu mid I drove
back lYoni tlio cemetery win re wo hud
seen our futber luul lo rest ' I vut twenty-two,
tuut nuinuier, ami tbo utliunct'd
bride of Allien Freemuii ; but, Binee uiy
fulliei't) deulli, I hud Uol heeu hiiu, una
my heart told nie only too plainly, tlml
thulove whicb had been givui to Muriun
Wilbor, tlie favorod of foitune, had not
been tiunnfeired to Munon AV.lbor, Ihe
hiiineless orphan. '
Florence, though yoanger limn I, was
mitn ied; bail her home and her husband,
and couid afford to look upon my fithtiB
lailure and death calmly; but I what
was I lo do? I miibt bcjiii the uoild,
and earn u living for mywlf.
We stopped before the mnnsion that
hid so Ion;,' beeu home that., alter to
night would be home no longer.
.; -I wish to tpmik to you, Marion,"
Florence said.
I led the way into the library. -
"Well V" I said, sitting down in the
gloom. "What is it Florence ?'' .
"It m this Muriou. Whut do you
mean to do?" ... ...
"I don t know," I said drearily enough
"It is lime you did," said Florence.
"You must earn your own living. I ttli
you frankly that I cunnot offer you a
home, und you must get some situation.
To-morrow you must leavo tin house.
You have no mouey. "Where are you
going?" ,
I droppod my bead on the table nnd
burst imo tears. Oh Ihe unspiakable
desolation and misery I felt ut that mo
ment ! My sister had never been over
stocked with affection for her family, and
thoughts of the world had always filled
a large place in her heart ; but it did
seem us if she might at lenst give me
time to bury my father bifot'e thrusting
me into it and not my father only, but
my lover, for was he not dead to me also,
and must I not bury him out of my
sight? " .
"I havo been niore thoughtful for you
th.'.n you have bet n for yourself,' pur
sued Florence. "I have found you a
temporary home. Mrs. Brown is in
want ti a seamstress. Ihuvespoken for
you; her terms are liberal, and you ore
to go there ut once." ,
Marion Wilbor go out. aR a sc'tuntstrcss !
How coolly she talked of it! It is as
tonishing how persons w,l! talk oi dis
comfort when they tire not the parlies
concerned. I made no answer. . I did
not lift my head, but cried on, silent,
wretelipd tears us ever n woman wept.
"You will go there to-morrow morn
ing, when yon leave here, and while there
you can ndvertiso for another place. I
must be going now. Good by." .
' I did not answer, nnd she was gone;
then I sank down in my loneliness,
poverty and misery, and cried until I
could cry no longer.
"O Alden, Alden !" I cried, in my great
wretchedness. ( "Is this the love you
professed for me ?"
And so that long night pisst-d, as all
trghts must; but the morning found me
a changed woman. It si enied as if in
that one night I had given up everything
that had bebu dear to me. It did not
break my heart, either; Alden Freeman
should never do that; when my heart
broke it should be for a worthier object.
No ! I thanked God that I had learned
Alden Freomun's tuivftf-lh so boon. '
With no choice left, I took my way to
Mis. Brown, and remained for three
months it' 'member of her family. One
moaning, nn advertisement in the paper
attracted my attention, and I determined
to answer it. ' It was for a copyist. . A
few hours laler I knocked at the office
door of Edwin Graham. He' was a
lawyer, and , one of the most talented
jaieu.ut the New York bur. ' ,
"You advertised font copyist," I said,;
and I called to eee if I, could do what
you require'.", :.:.!.?'.,
'i "Will you write something for me?"
he said, placing willing muteriuls before
in.' ' - .t i..- .; -
- I wrote several lines, which be esam
ined, r.nd then -said they "would do."
' ' I found the terms liberal, and carried
home quite' a large roll of pnpers. It
wasurrungfd that after this the office
boy was lo call for my writings, and
bring me further orders. ' '
Mr. Graham tailed occassional)- to give
some directions about the law papers;
he witil h nan of about thirty-five, very
kind in his manner, and be occnnionnlly
brought mfl a book lo rend. His little
kiudncKsts were very welcome tg nie in
my gicat loneliness. " ' ' i '
I have forgotten to sny tlm(I had
gone to live with nn old Judy ' whpm I
had once bifrietidi-d during long ill
uess, but who had since rcc rived a f mull
h-gmy which enabled her to live com
fori ably. i ' ' '. , '
'In time, wy writings grew to be-other
than the) copying of law papers, t Firht,
I wrote n short sketch, and sent it lo one
of the lending journals; it was'rtceived
and paid for, nnd I continued vtriting.
Soon after, a new book wns girt'to the
public, und loudly npplamlcd.; A ' few
evenings afterward Mr. Gralnim called
and brought me ' the book, fnyittg he
wished me to rend it, us he felt mre I
would like it The author was tyiknown
he said; the only gave a fictii'ons nnme;
nnd till the i flbrts nf (hc'pnl lie Lad been
unsuccessful in finding her out I suid
nothing. I chose lo keep my secret. '
I had made up my mind to give np
copying, and told hi in so. He looked nt
me in astu piiscd way for a moment
then said ' ' . '
"May I ask why, Mifs Willbor? Are
you to l;e married T Tell me that it is
not go !" He took niy hand, then went
on hurriedly,
"I love yon; yon ennnot he surprised
at this; 3 on must have seen ' It before;
tell me that no one tl&e has a claim upon
your heart "
I told him the stcy of my past life.
"You cannot care for second love," I
said. , ' ' '
Bui ho only clasped me in his nrnip,
"Your second love is more precious
to me than the first love of any other
I told him that night, who was the
authoress of the book he so much ad
n.U'cd. A look of proud joy came into
his face.
"I thought it was like you; it made
me think of you when I read it; but I
did not dream of this; why have yon
kept it such secnt?"
"Can yon womlei ?"' I 6nid. "Hnve I
not hained what it was to be lovi d for
my good fortune, nnd 1'orMiktn when
that forsook me ?'' I wished to be loved
for myself idono."
Only nee have I met Alden Freemen ;
i' was seven years after my father's deal b.
He did not know of my marriage, and
begged me to fo'give him.
"O Ma ion !" he said, "jori'wonld fol
give and pity roe if you knew what I
have suffered. Only forgive me, Marion
and let me win your heart once more.
Promise to be my wife, and nothing on
earth shall pint us."
What a flood of bitter memories op
pressed my heart !
"There was a time long past," Inn
swered, "when my heart was nil your
own; but yon cast it back as worthless;
have I not suffered, think you ? . I would
not trust you with my heart if it were
ever so free; but it is not; I have given
it to one who loves mc not for my gold
but for myi-elf." "I inn married to a good
and noble man, and I love him with my
whole heait" '
A Quaker's Letter.
I herewith send thee my pocket clock,
which staudeth in need ot thy friendly
correction. The hint time he was at thy
friendly school, he wns in no way re
formed nor in the least, benefitted there
by; for I perceive by the index of his
mind that he is a liar r.nd the truth is
not in him; that bis pulse is sometimes
slow, which betokenelh not a even tem
per; at other times it wnseth sluggish,
notwithstanding I frequently urge him;
when' he sh'inld be on duty; s lion
knowest his'himd dcnotelh, I find him
slumbering, or, as the vanity of bumu:t
reason phrases it, I caught him napping.
Examine him, therefore, nnd prove him,
I beseech thee, -thorou.hly, tbiit thon
may est, being well acquainted with his
inward frame ana disposition, draw him
from the error ol his way, and show him
the path where lie should go.- It grieves
n.e t . t ink, i nd r, h n I ponder tier in
I am vi lily of the opinion that his hod.v
ia foul, nnd the whiJenissKiscumrpted.
Cleanse him, therefore, wiih thy charm
ing physic, from all pollution, that may
vibrate nnd circulate according to the
truth I wilf place him for a few days
under thy care, and pay for his board as
thou requirest. ' I entreat thee, friend
John, to demean thyself n this occasion
with judgment, nctording to the gift
which is in thee, and piove thyself a
workman; and when thou lajest thy
corn cling hand upon him let it be
without passion, lest thou should.st di ive
him o destruction Do tbnvy regulate
his motion for a time to come by the
motion of the light thnt rnleih the day,
and when thou findest bira converted
from the error of his ' ways, find more
coufotmable to the above-nrettioned
rules, then do thou nenrVhim homo with
a just bill of charges-drawn out in the
spirit of moderaiion, nnd it shall be sent
to thco in the root of all evil.

' -A Sad; Sad Story.- -
Twenty-five years ago, says n letter
writer, a company of young people,
farmers'; sons and daughters, to the
number of thirty-two, drove in tho early
morning down lo the anciei.t little city
of Amboy, New Jeisey, to tmbuik in "a
sloop for a sail down tlie waters of ono
of Ihe prettiest bays that wash the At
lantic coast. rArrived t Sandy Hook,
they feasted, fished nnr frolicked and
flirted, too, no doubt, for, the wash-tub
and the dairy can never deprive the
daughters of Eve uf ther prerogative.
At tho close of the afternoon they pre.
pared for glorious bath in the surf ot
Florida Grv ve, the young men retiring
round ti e point, leaving their fair friends
in unciiibaimssed enjoyment of the sit
uation. ' Upon their return the young
farmers saw tight that might well
strike terror to the stoutest heart. The
cniol undertow . hnd sucked the poor
girls down to their deaths, nnd the
waves had cast their bodies on to the
sands from whence they had dnshed so
merrily into the rolling sui t a short half
hour before mid not one of the whole
parly was left alive. Sadly tho young
men bore the remains of sisters, friend
and sweetheait back to their homes, now
made desolate indeed, nnd wido-spresd
was the grief and anguish in the hither
to happy township of Piseataway. There
was not a family that did not niouru the
loss of a beloved child and daughter;
and such was the shock produced by
Ihe terrible occurrence throughout the
whole State of New Jersey that the
memory of it is preserved to this day,
and the story told by those who listened
to it first, perhaps, from the .lips of a
sorrowful eye-witness.
An Indian's Mistake.
Some months ago a lot of Sioux In
dians robbed a stage couch on tho plains,
and found among the packages of freight
a clothes wringer. One of the chiefs
had observed certain beings grinding
tii iilrc music out of a machine with the
same kind of a crank as that upon the
wringer, ro a conviction f-eized his soul
that that was a barrel organ. He had
the wringer carefully carried back lo
cauip, and he made up his mind that
from that day forward the silence of that
solitary wilderness was going to be
broken by a ceaseless round of tunes
and vibrations. First be grasped tlie
crank nnd began to turn it, in order to
show his braves how the thing w as done.
He revolved it for sixteen hours, but no
music came. Then the other Indians
took a hand, one after , another, for a
week. Then tho squaws were turned
on. bnt with i:o effect ; - : '
1 ben Ihe chief went out ond stole a
mule and a threshing machine, and rig
ged np a lot of blocks and pulleys, and
ran a bell over the ( rank; then exploded
pow der under the hind legs of Hint mule,
so that he kept charging up the inclined
plane of that threashing machine, and
the wringer mude sixty revolutions a
minute. But 'it wouldn't work. So
Ihe chief came to the conclusion that the
concern was under some kind of a curse,
and he ran out the medicine man, and
had a war dance, and drove yellow pine
slukis through a couple of white cap
lives, and jumped some wild mysterious
mns'c on the drum. Then the medicine
man filched np the mule again, and.
aftr starting Ihe machine, he leaned up
against it while he muttered an exorcism
In a couple of minutes the rubber rol
lers clenched his breech clout nnd began
to haul l.im in with his knees doubled
up against his face. When ho got hall
way through he stuck, and the machine
stopped. He couldn't move, and the
chief was afraid to touch the wringer;
so the braves fell ou the rloctor. and
jabbed him with a knife, and sc ilped
him; then they buried him and the na
chino as tiny were. This wns the last
attempt of the Sioux Indians to culti
vate the fine arts.
Terrible Sentence.
The Iiev. Oial Oielscn a Norwegian
rniuister, was beheaJed on the 20th of
July, ut Tromsoe, in the extreme north
of Norway. He had been- convicted of
having poisoned his aged father, and
having assassinated his three ille"ititrit
children. He was arrested at the insti
gation of his former mistress, Bertha
Hilgren, und, iu consequence of his
strenous denials of cult, sul'iiected to the
torture of being deprived of water for
ttiree days, nnd once, for twenty-four
hours ho was chained to the wall of his
dungeon in an erect posit ion. The sen
tence .linuiiy piouounced against him
w as that for tw enty-four hours he should
be exr.osed to the pillory with his rwht
hand nailed to the board of infamy, and
that he should then hsve his rr'trht hand
chopped off nnd his head cut off with an
axe. Upon bearing his doom, the uu-
lorinnatemun tell on his knees and mi
plorcd tho audience to shoot bun. in or
der to put an end lo his miscty. Nearly
20,000 people witnots the execution of
tlie ci wnnul. ; ' . :
A good story is told of a widow lady
in town. Her husband . died fur nvyiy
from home, and it took so long for his
remains to reach Now York that his relict
had quite recovered from her grief and
was giving a large lunch party when they
finully arrived.,! A wagon drove up' to
the door,, and a long box was handed
out. Curiosity ran high among the .a .
dies nt the window, and with one accord
they exclaimtd, "Why, Mis. Jones, what
can it be?" Up went Mrs. Jones' eye
glasses, nnd after a glance she coolly
said, "Why,, it must be. Jones come
homo. Charley, ran down and open the
door for your father.
Ono of the saddest sights in this
season of ihe yhec is a young man who

' .The Way to Keep Sunday. - -. .
The Lord's day is a good day in which
to learn to love you neighbor as your
self. I do not thiuk- it is a great sin if
your neighbor has his side door opeu ou
the Sabbath day for you1 to walk serosa
the lawn and sit on his porch, and tnllr
with him of seemly things. -1 think the
Lord hkel that I do Mot think that if
your household is more radiant, and
yonr children wake and say, (as I never
did). "Thank God, it 'is Suiiday"!
don't think that if you wake it the best
day of the week, aud your children are
good uutured, and joyful that Hay are
any the worse.' I believa in letting out
the harness a lit tie. I believe hi making
the holes for the buckle a little. lower
down. Let our Lord's day be a church
day in the iroriiing and a family day the
rest of Ihe time. I thiuk that we pre'uch
too much. I think we overteach and
overtax in the Sabbalh-school. I thinl
we are' waking iWlViud'a.cta.vluhaiuiaaw-
I do not think we use Sunduy enough
to mako the family finer,- bwscter, morg
homogeneous, more social and so more
religious. I see ninny, many men who
come to church stern and stiff. " They
wonld not for all the world ride in a
street car on Sunduy no; nor go over
the ferry on Suuday uo; . nor do any
thing at home that made them agreeable
nil!. I do not hold up their way of
keeping Ihe Sablmth as a model. Sun
day is n day of household love. It is n
day in which the children ought lo fuel
that their father ajid mother never wete
so handsome before, and never ho good.
It is a day in which ever part of the
household should, at the going down of
the sun, be able to say, "Thank God for
this open door of heaven, which bus
poured ou'. so munv happy hours on
us?" .
Not a Pleasant Ride.
' Interesting accounts have b""cn given
of rides with actual or supposed lunatics,
and some of the criminal records of the
Europer.n cities givo graphic leiniuis
cenceaof criminals as companions on
railway and coach routes. But 'one 'ex
perience of a Warder of Newgate prison,
in a van loaded with criminals, is told
in the Pall Hall Uuzttte, as follows:
It scums that tho prison van was con
veying fifteen convicts who had been
sentenced to long terms of pennl servi
tude at the last session of the Criminal
Court from Newguto to the House of
Correction at Pentoiivillc. . One warder
was stationed inside the van, in a small
space frclwcen tho compartments-,' and
another wurder on Ihe step of the ve
hiclei The journey passed offplcasanjly
enough until the van reached Islington,
when one rf thepnsoiiers begun to break
in the inner iiariel of his cell.. His ex
ample was followed by three others, and
there appeared every prospect of a des-
perato truggle ensuing; iu the mean
time the warder inside had given the
alarm to the wurder outside, who com
municated the danger lo the driver.
The horses were accordingly urged to a
rapid pace, and dashed niiwprd toward
Pen ton ville Prison in the lopes of nr-
nving there before the convicts succeed
ed iu regaining their liberty. It must
have been an exciting moment a the van
flew through the narrow streets with
this wild turmoil going on wilhin its
gloomy panels. At lust the haven was
reached in safety, and the relief of the
wurder insido when lie found himself
within its gates and handed over hs
passengers to the rcntonville officials
niay be more easily imagined than de
scribed. Realities of Manhood.
To the boy, tho world beyond his im
mediate surroundinds is only a picture.
He does not know how real arc the sor
rows, the passions, the ambitions of nun.
Its absorbing interest, its heroes and its
martyrs, are heard of by hiiu without
understanding, or with indifl'eronco
His sport, his lessons, his homo life, are
alone real,. But thero will conic a change.
The ordinary slow growth into manhood,
with its business or professional pursuits
and widening relations, or btarlling
event, such as the death of a parent, or
some intellectual or spiritual appeal,
striking out the latent soul, will mako
vivid and earnest what was indistinct
and uninteresting. Like a sterescopio
picture bifore it is put in the storescopic,
tlie life of men has no body or reality;
but when the hoy awakens as with the
picture within the instrument so with
him. a solidity and naturalncsss w ill bo
acquired by the external world, und he
will feel that it is henceforth to live and
move amongst these granderand graver
forms. Many mistakes will he commit,
falso estimates will he form of propor
tion and perspective, the earnestness of
new conceptions wiil hurry him into ex
travagances and generous errors, but if
there is truth in his nature, and noble
ness in his spirit,'' just views will be
formed, and the day in which it is given
him to work will find him not unmind
ful of the responsibility which arises
from a knowledge of the coming night.
Vfuhian's Smile.
' A beautiful smilo'is to" the femnla
countenance what the sunbeam is to the
landscape; it embellishes an inferior hce
and redeems an ngly one. A smile,
however, should not .becomo habitual,
or insipidity is the result; nor slypuld
tho mouth break -into-a' smile on ono
side, the other remaining passive aud
unmoved, for this imparts an air of de
ceitful i grotesqueness to the fuce. A
disagreeable ,smile distorts the line cf
beauty and is more repulsive than a
frown. There ore many kinds of smiles,
each having' ' distinctive, character;
some announce goodness and sweetness;
others betray sarcasm, bitterness, and
pride; some soften, the conntouance by
thoir brilliant and' spiritual yivncity.
Gazing and poring over a mirrnw can
not, aid in acquiring beaatiful smiles half
so v ell as to tain the gaze inward, to
watch that the iieart keeps unsullied '
from the reflection of evil, and is illu
mined and beautified by sweet throbs.
