I'm In love, but I've never told her, Never told the maiden I love; I lie !n tho long, green grass and behold her, A one swing all day in the boughs above. I'm a Kiudent with toil o'erladen, And a rtudent ever should books prefer, Hut shu's such a darling, dainty maiden, My thoughts go swinging away with her. See saw 1 Margery Daw 1 Up in the apple tree Margery swings; And I, lying under, Watch her, and wonder What is the ditty that Margery sings. And she gees swinging; and I go slaving, Turning the leaves of a musty book; Hut surely that was her white hand waving, And surely that was my darling's look. A perfect fortress of books I sit in, Ethics, economy, politics, law. But all the pages I vow were written By that little philosopher, Margery Daw. See saw ! Margery Daw ! Up in the apple tree Margery swings; And I, lying under, Watch her, and wonder What is the ditty that Margery sings. The light is fading, the day grown older And now the west ering sun is gone, And Margery 1 no more behold her; In the deep, cool grass I lie alone. For Margery she was a sunbeam only, And I was a fool for all my pain, But whenever I'm sad and whenever I'm lonely, Hack comes Margery, back again. See saw ! Margery Daw 1 Up in the apple-tree Margery swings; For "Life's a dream, And love's a shadow !" And that is the ditty that Margery sings. Temple Bar. Senator Conkling once facitiously dubbed Hon. David Davis. The great American reservoir of political soothing syrup," and however apt the figure was at the time his recent record has effect ually dispellect the illusion that sooth ing sweetness predominates to any very large extent in his make-up large as he is. His course recently; has been enigmatical in the extreme. Like the Irishman's ilea "whin ye think you've got'im, bedad. he's somewhere else thin." He first voted with the Kepub Means to admit the three new Senators before organizing, and thus disappoint ed the Democrats and set the Repub licans to figuring upon his influence and then disappointed both parties by re fusing to support Edmunds amendment substituting Anthony for Bayard. These apparently contradictory posi tions coming so close together have made him an object of unusual interest to both parties. In case the Democrats persist in organizing the Senate before the admission of the new Senators, and choose Bayard President pro lem; it is not improbable that when the new Senators do come in the Republicans will insist upon, choosing a successor to Mr. Bayard, and then if Senator Davis should vot e with the Republicans, or should abstain from voting, which is more probable; they can easily elect their man. In view of the fact that Davis whole political life has shown liim to be pre-eminently in favor of "fair play," and that the ultimate ob ject of Democratic Senators in forcing the organization, is a possible presi dential succession; we deem it safe to predict that his course will prevent the peculiar circumstances of the present from being thus questionable, utilized for Democratic advantage. The pres ent indications are that the special ses sion of the Senate will develop much of the partizan bitterness and retaliatory obstruction to business by which the last session was characterized and that much time will be occupied in a heated contest over the admission of Lapham and Miller of New York as the commit tee appointed to examine the creden tials authorized to take into consider ation the protest of the Democratic Senators of the New York legislature. Some man has recently said that the fact of giving Guiteau a fair trial, would do much to evince the stability of our institutions. We suggest in all reason that if we are to win fame and honor as a nation, by "gushing" over Guiteau, that.thc most distinguished and ex travagant nonsense that can be indulged will add the more to the lustre of ou na tional renown. Then let his trial have all the show and glitter and gorgeous ness that can be thrown around it. Separate him in his trial as far as pos sible from the common criminal, and it won't be long before some other crank seeking morbidly for notoriety,, will strike down another President just to make himself famous. Fattening For Marriage. A lady correspondent at Saratoga says: I met a girl at Saratoga w ho told me that she was trying to fatten her self for bridal. The afhanced husband was an ardent admirer of plumpness, and she was rather lean. The amount of oatmcl and cream she consumed was marvelous, and she lolled around all daylong, refusing to dance even, for fear of working off an ounce of ilesli. A month of that kind of treatment in creased her weight nine pounds, but it did'nt improve her appearance, to my mind, because she had a fat, porky leek in her face, and her skin became bad from indigestion. The wiser sys tem commonly adopted by affianced wives is a plain, nourishing diet, plenty of exercise, and long, regular hours of sleep. These brace her up iu health, and an improved appearance is the consequence. ('. E. Wencbe'a Price Lint. Choice Rio coffee per lb., 151. Mocha coffee per lb. 3ó. Powdered Sugar, per lb. 14.
