WE ARE CHANGE©. We feel our love has long* grown cold And yet we dare not own That day by day, a silent change Has o'er our spirit grown. We see It though our eyes the while Are blinded by our tears: With words of former tenderness We strive to mock our fears. But we are changed. We are not one. As we were once of old. O, would to God that we had died Before our love grew cold. We've struggled hard against our fate Our hearts still warm to keep. As wayworn men strive with the cold That numbs them into sleep. We have not let one unkind word The bitter truth reveal; The world knows not. must never know. What both of us now feel. That we are changed. We are not one. As we were once of old. O. would to God that we had died Before our love grew coldl Bound, like the felon bound of yore. Unto the lifeless clay- Linked to a lovelong dead that shows Each moment more decay — In secret we must hug our bonds Till death will set us free. I weep, my wife, to think that I Have forged these chains for thee; For we are changed. We are not one, As we were once of old. O. would to God that we had died Before our love grew coldl — G. Halliburton in Blackwood's Magazine. m ___ ONE LOVE AND TWO LETTEES. . Life is at best a tangled maze, A web of woven chances — We grope away thro' cloud and haze, Mere toys of circumstances. There were two letters awaiting Miss Stanhope on her writing-desk as she en tered her room that morning. She was not yet in a mood for wading through any very long epistles received from former society friends since her return from the seashore. They all contained the same story— a charming summer; a happy engagement perhaps not for the first time, yet just as happy; requests for sympathy for broken hearts, or a feminine chuckle over hearts broken. Ordinarily she had taken an interest in these light confidences. But now she appeared "glum," as her brother Fred expressed it Several of these letters had been only half read, and lay in a pile at one side of her writing-desk. Yes, she had dressed just as well as any one else; she had had her horses, parties and her admirers. But she did not care much for them; she had always had them; other girls had them; any one might have them who had the money. That is not to say she was not fond ef attention. She liked society, and she had a wholesome craving to be recognized at her full worth. In this respect too, bad she been satisfied from her youth ud. No! She had not been exactly "snubbed;" she had been "hurt" There's a vast amount of comfort to be extracted from the difference we can put between those two •j words. ; Stanley Newton had not had much in . the way of either money or looks to recom i mend him when he first attracted her at ' tention in society the winter before. He J was tall and rather awkward when he came I to begin life as a clerk in a well-known law [office. But as he had many good friends : and was himself of a once aristocratic family, the doors of society had been squeezed open for him. It had happened that each time he had "gone out" he had met Miss Stanhope, and each time it had been his good fortune to see more of her than of any other young lady. With all his college experiences and vacancies behind him he had fancied himself entirely unsusceptible now — at least until he could see his way to an income a little larger than bis board bill. Of course he was mistaken. The story is an old one, yet it is ever being repeated — the first young woman who really charmed him, who impressed him with her intel ligence, beauty, grace and sweetness, that woman could henceforth command him. Evelyn Stanhope was that woman. She knew it, and the knowledge had brought with it a deeper sense of pleasure than she had ever expected in any half-way similar ca«e before. As the season wore on and the spring came she ceased to blush when the maid told her that he was waiting for her in the parlor. On his side, he began to venture the necessity of his strict attention to busi ness as an excuse for an occasional unex pected absence. It had its end. It gave her material for witticisms, and he may have gotten from the whole strength enough to help him through one or two hard days at the office. Her regular summer trip to the sea shore bade fair to separate them for a time when matters were quite critical. Nevertheless he did have means enough to allow of bis getting out of the city for a time, and by judiciously hoarding them he might— yes, he promised that he would "come down for a day or two occasionally." "Rumor" had it that they were engaged. They were not Who ever knew such a couple to confess it. no matter how good the mutual "understanding," until formal words, deprived of their force by their de lay, are sealed with a ring? If a ring went with every first kiss more young men would be bankrupt than are now. Frank Pascal had, however, no let or hindrance to his going to the shore for one month or oue year. He didn't depend on the height of any office stool for his income. He traced back his ancestry in lines which didn't fail to include the greatest of that name. And he was by no means the least He was the resultant — financially. Still he had good points. Miss Stanhope recog nized them if Stanley Newton did not Perhaps he did, only he was not eager to say. Mr. Pascal had an extremely irritating little cough that was made worse by the sea breeze. But when he heard Miss Stan hope sighing for fear none of her old friends would be at the shore he turned a deaf ear to doctors and hastened to disap point her. Now as Stanley Newton had also been one of the party when she expressed her re gret about her summers prospects. Miss Stanhope could but smile to herself at the outcome when Mr. Pascal drove up in front of the hotel the day after her arrival She was almost tempted to sit down that night and write to Stanley about the drive and what a comical fellow she had suddenly come to find her old friend Pascal. All that prevented her was a vow she had entered into with Stanley to the effect that they never should write to each other before — well, unless in case of dire necessity. It was one of his humored eccentricities. In this case, moreover, did it not mean she would see him more.for.of course. they must exchange opinions some way? It was Tues day — long time to Sunday; but then she would tell him everything, the peculiar new light in which she beheld Pascal and every one else. Yes, she knew it was the glamour of first love. So the next afternoon, too, she started for another drive, her mother accompan. - ing her, of course, in good European style, just about the time that Stanley Newton was taking the train for the shore and was wondering how she would receive bis little surprise. It was a short ride, and Stanley was not long in making himself presentable for "tea," Then he loitered about waiting for the Stanhopes to appear. They did not come. It was not until he had lighted , his cigar and was sitting on the piazza that they drove up with Mr. Pascal. He saw them alight and heard their friendly inter change of gratitude— friendly, very friendly, indeed. He would wait till after "tea" before presenting himself. But they did not come down again. Next morning he was compelled to return to the city before any one was up. Some bow, it was not convenient for him to go to the shore Saturday night A fellow clerk went, however, and returned to tell him what a happy couple Pascal and Miss Stanhope made. It was just as well; Pascal had money and was much the better match for her. The next Wednesday night, however, found the temptation greater than the ab surd resolve, and he went down again. There was a "hop" at the hotel. Miss Stanhope already had about all her dances engaged, and Mr. Pascal was her partner. Stanley fancied she did not regret this t much, notwithstanding that she said she did in the only tete-a-tete they had. He bad no time to go again till the day before she came home. There was no mistaking the frigidity of her manner then. . And, although he was bold enough to ask for it while advancing none on his own part, she was right iv thinking that that frigid ity needed no explanation. He could not help feeling somewhat guilty; yet so warmly did he go against his conscience and defend his fancied rights in that inter view that he returned to the city feeling like a criminal. He was now positive that he was no person for Miss Stanhope. On the other hand, pique completely mas tered the young lady. She saw it all, she thought, . and her indignation rose as her range of vision increased. Pascal came home with her and had been a constant caller at the bouse since. She delighted in his company so she told herself. He was a thorough gentleman with no mean sus picions. - . Of the two letters lying on her table that morning she recognized one as in the hand writing of Pascal,. which had become famil iar to her long before she had heard of Mr. Newton. The other bore an address not exactly in a business band, yet decidedly masculine and rather sprawling. She had never seen it before; doubtless, though, it was some bill that some blunderer had sent to her instead of to her father; or St might be a circular. She did not stop long to speculate over it She tossed it to one side in her eagerness to see what Mr. Pascal could be writing about broke the dainty seal of this young man's missive, and, with a half sarcastic smile, read as follows: My Dear Miss Stanhope: Witn your kind permission I shall call to take you to drive this afternoon. As I wish to see you on important business please do not disap point me. Reverentially, Frank Pascal. Merton Place, Sept. 20, 1880. '•Important business?" What could it be? Something whispered a suggestion which sent the hot blood to her face. The something that whispered a sugges tion was not far from right Before it was time to go to the seashore another year she was Mrs. Frank Pascal, and the doctor easily had his way about the trip to the mountains for his health. That trip did not improve the cou gh any, however. Neither did one trip to Europe. Before two years were past Frank Pascal's rather empty life was closed. The world did not heed this fact half as much as he had thought it would, nor yet did the Stan hopes feel incline to bury themselves in ashes. They had never been satisfied with Evelyn's unaccountable change of mind. All questions that they put to her about Newton were wasted. Her father heard from him occasionally in a business way; he was doing very well, though traveling from one place to another a great deal. And that was about all that Evelyn knew, though she knew that much thoroughly. When away on their trio a succession of pleasing dreams had almost made up for her lack of information. To be sure, there was a never-failing resolve to be a good wife. But that did not mean much for Pascal. A good nag or the billiard table had made up his summum bonum till bis strength had failed with his fortune, and then a light novel had Deen his most de sired solace. After his death Evelyn had returned to her oWn home, a changed being. People remarked upon how much she seemed to miss her husband. For two months she had lost ali trace of Mr. Newton in his travels. Her own troubles had engrossed her, for with all her faults she had a warm and true heart She was given to dwelling much upon her lost opportun ities to have made Frank Pascal happier. She was sorry that she was as she was. Yet as time wore on she found that she could not change her nature and she gave herself up to it. She had loved but one man. The acuteness of her indignation had grown less, indeed, as time had gone on. The fact began to force itself upon her, as she observed year after year that Newton never married, that he might not have been the only one who had misjudged and who therefore owed an aoology. Still, he had erred first and it had been his duty, in what seemed now like that bitter long ago, to have made the first explanation. No. she had been deceived in him, and it was strange that she should allow this memory to linger so long. It was while indulging in such reflections as these that she was rearranging the ar ticles in her room one day. The old writ ing desk had come in for a ''good, thorough cleaning." In her abstraction she pulled the drawer out too far and it fell to the floor with a crash. Patieutly gathering up its contents — she had nothing else in the world now to occupy her time she tried to push the un ruly receptacle back into its place. ' It would not go. Drawing it forth once more she put her hand into the opening to learn what the obstacle was. It was an old let ter, directed in a masculine, yet not ex actly business, hand, and unopened. That was rather strange at the date — "Sept. 20, 1880." Should she ever forget that date? Memories came rushing back to her. The heaving of her bosom threw the blood to her head so fast that she could not see. As she read her senses came gradually back to her. The letter was from Edward Colton, a friend of Stanley Newton's, written at his request. For weeks, it said, he bad been ill of a fever, and now. as he began to recover, his first thought was of the necessity to ask her forgiveness — for what the note did not say. At the end was one trembling line in pencil, "Yours ever, S. N." As she finished and laid the paper down a servant came in with a lady's card. "I am not at home," said Mrs. Pascal, and then with a sudden recollection that the latter had been a friend of Newton's, she added: "No; say I will come dowu at once." Presently, to her question of New ton's whereabouts, Mrs. Wharton was say ing: "He is in town for the first time in more than a year and is going to dine with my father tonight." "Will you give him a message from me?" asked Evelyn. "Tell him to come and see me; I want to reply to a note ot his which should have been answered long ago." A True Socialist. The Rambler. "Johnnie," quoted the socialist agitator to his ten-year-old, "did you sell that old iron to-day?" "Yes. pa." "Well what did you get for it?" "Five dollars." "That's good," and the silver-tongued orator of the hoodlums rubbed his hands joyfully. "Give it to me." "Give it to you, pa! why, I haven't got it all Here's your share one dollar." "My share, you young reprobate! what do you mean?" roared the advocate of plunder. "Well, I'll tell you, pa.* Me an' Jimmie. an' some other fellows formed a society, you know, for making things equaL You see we heard you speak once, and ever since : we've believed in dividing things equally, so we just divided up that So." As the two returned from the woodshed Johnnie was very thoughtful, and he walked with a painful limp. "Pa." he said at last, "these here ideas aint meant to apply to us, I guess. They're only for other people who have money, aint they?" And then the father's heart was glad, for he knew that his son' would make a ttue socialist . - ■ _■ ■ . ./''/ Theological Item.

"I sailed from Liverpool for South Amer ica April 23, 1882, in ths steamer Ella I West, commissioned as a missionary of the I Women's Presbyterian Foreign Missionary j society," said the Rev. Howard Chumley to a Philadelphia News reporter. "We j reached Rio Janeiro May 20, after a rough' : voyage, and after a short rest 1 entered on !my labors in Brazil. I did not make much ! headway except among the poorer natives, but my success was sufficiently encourag ! ing. During a year and a half I traversed | the empire, and. with God's assistance, ! made a small array of converts. 1 pene trated to Bolivia, and at last, going north on the Guapore river, struck a densely wooded country. The climate is extremely hot all the year round. "In September, 1884, 1 was stricken with intermittent fever. My two Brazilian at tendants cared for me faithfully, but in a frenzy I left the tent and wandered off into the forest When 1 became conscious I became extremely weak, and found my self absolutely naked, lying on a heap of dead leaves in a sort of crate constructed of stout sticks. My body was thickly cov ered with a yellow ointment which had re moved every hair. My head was iv the same condition. Looking around to dis cover where I was, 1 found myself evi dently in the center of a village. The houses or huts were evidently of mud, stones and trees. In a few minutes, it having been noticed that I was moving about, people began to gather around my cage. They examined me with great interest, and I had a great interest In ex amining them. They were mostly women, tail, well-formed, and of a nut-brown color. The few men I saw were absolutely dwarfs, and nearly every one carried a female in fant in his arms. The women were armed with clubs and sharpened points, and were evidently prepared for some violent out break on my part Some of them poked me with sticks, and seemed astonished that I did not tear around my cage. I addressed them in Spanish and several of the patois I had acquired, but they did not under stand me, and jabbered in a guttural dia lect. I made them understand that I desired something to eat and drink by pontomime, which they understood, and I was brought some liquor which derived its strength from chewed maize and some raw flesh. The latter I could not bring myself to eat, but I drank the liquor. A child pushed a thick cake into my cage. It was composed of pounded maize and water. This I ate with avidity, and more of the same kind was given me. "I was not taken from the cage for over a month, but was fed on the - maize cake and liquor and raw meat, which in time I became able to eat. The crate was moved daily and a fresh bed of leaves given me. I could observe but littie in such a position, except to see that the females were numer ically and physically . superior to the men. I was able to pick up a few sentences of the language, and it was from my repetition of the words of a child begging that I was eventually released. I suppose, however, my captors had become convinced that I was not dangerous, though I learned that during my fever I had been very violent I had been given to understand by the woman who had been placed as guard in charge of me that I would be so severely dealt with in case I attempted to escape and such a close watch was left on my movements that I lived more than a year and a half among these people — the Uncapalitzms. as nearly as I can spell before the opportunity of fered to escape. In that time I learned much that will astonish the scientific world. Briefly stated, the women are the ruling sex. and the government is vested in an elected female triumvirate., whose sway is absolute. The men are in a ratio of one In twelve, and the horrible custom prevails of murdering the male infants by driving a stake through them, except such as are born during a period corresponding with the first twenty-six days of July in each year. The growth of those who are allowed to live is restricted by artificial means. All the peo ple, numbering about 1,000, gather in the village square at noon every day and wor ship an idol representing a woman with three heads. Maize is cultivated, together with some vegetables that grow wild, and the people live on these, together with the flesh of animals and birds, wild and domestic which are killed with clubs and stones. The bodies are anointed with a gum drawn from a tree and mixed with grease, which remove? all hair, which is considered unclean. This gum has curative properties of great value. Of horses and oxen there are several hundred in the village, which have neither tails nor ears, and are hairless through the agency of the napatam, as the ointment I speak of is termed. There is a remarkable bird among the domestic pets. It resembles a pelican, but the neck is from three to five feet long, and the un gainly fowl can twist its neck into a knot or wrap it around its body. It lives on smaller birds, which it catches by darting the head forward with lightning-like rapid ity. "Fire is unknown in the region. The meat is eaten in the raw state, and as there seems to be no hard stone or hard metal in the country, I could not obtain a flint "The people, I forgot to say, are barbar ous and without literature or any form of science. Four months ago I eluded the vigilance of those who kept watch over me. I was allowed a good many privileges and obtained back my clothing, which I was al lowed to wear. I crept away in the dark one evening, and following the course of a stream about two miles from the village of the Uncapalitzms, came after about two weeks to the Bolivian town of Cavnias. Thence I made my way to the coast and begged of a ship captain to allow me to work my way to Boston, where I arrived Monday of last week." "MEN'S GARMENTS. Seme Valuable Points as to When and How to Wear Clothing*. Boston Herald. That the clothing of men should be large enough to permit every movement of the body to be made with ease is an injunction which applies alike to them and to women. Reform need not be idle among the sterner sex. Growing corpulency can only be dis guised by unhealthy restraint; bodily dis comfort is the penalty imposed for the ob servation of many of fashion's demands. The tight and contracting pantaloons dis play a shapely leg. yet are extremely in convenient They disturb circulation by pressure and prevent active movements. The exquisite who courts strangulation in the collar ot the period, prevents easy flow of blood to and from the brain, renders himself uncomfortable aud . bis movements awkward. It has been well said that while we have re jected all coverings of the necks of children as being troublesome and useless, yet in defiance of reason and experience, we con tinue to incumber our necks with senseless bandages. The neck and throat being con stantly in use, it is highly imprudent to obstruct its motion for the sake of appear ance, vanity or fashions. All coverings should be worn loosely. The shirt should be comfortably high in front, and the form of collar chosen which is most easy and agreeable. Practically, " the collar and necktie will be sufficient protection for the throat The fashionable neck-handkerchiefs are abominations; they overheat the parts they cover and render them unnaturally sensitive to every change of the atmos phere. When the cold is intense, turning up the coat collar will be sufficient addi tional protection. . Those who are subject to sore throats especially others may wisely observe this rule — should select one fashion of collar and necktie early In the autumn, and vary little or none from it until late in the soring. Their shirts Should also be uni formly fitted about the neck; frequent changes from the standing to the turn-down collar are a common cause of throat affec tions and catarrhal disorders. As a general rule, men will do well to wear warmer underclothing and lighter coats; exercise can then be more freely in dulged in. The overcoat should be loosely fitting, as easy aoross the breast when buttoned as when - unbuttoned. Long ••coat-skirts" seriously interfere | with walking, and are but little * pro tection • against oold, - certainly not sufficient to compensate for their inconven ience, '1 hose men who are obliged to I take long drives in winter will do well to provide themselves with a large cape of coarse material lined with flannel. 'If the same be provided with a large collar no more comfortable garment can be imagined. It can bo made with openings on the aides, . through which the arms can be passed for driving. Gentlemen would do well to wear hate made of felt It is by far the moat suitable material for the cooler months. If heavy "bell-tops" or silk . bats are worn continuously, early baldness Is the conse quence. ' The subject of ladies' hats may soon be dismissed, as one writer says: "As for those of the present time, little can be said of them on the score of quantity. What next will follow nobody can tell." It will, perhaps, lend Interest to the sub ject of clothing, if the following general rules are added: Leave off your winter clothes late in the spring and put them on early In the autumn. Clothes should be warm enough to protect the body against cold, and largo enough to permit every movement to be made with as much ease when they are on as when they are off. When leaving the cold air and entering warm rooms remove the outer wraps at once. If ladies would observe this rule colds would be much less common among them. ' They too often visit churches and places of amusement, and there remain for a time in their costumes entire. On leaving they enter their carriages or the street cars, and reach home chilled and shivering. It would be wisdom on all such occasions, when suddenly leaving a high temperature and entering a much lower, to walk until the body is accustomed to the change and circulation is active. For languid circulation, the cause of chilliness and cold feet the best treatment is exercise. A walk of twenty minutes in the open air three or four times a day will be mainly instrumental in the accomplish ment of a cure. Weak people, who in very cold weather cannot walk fast enough to excite sufficiently increased action in their systems to make and keep themselves warm, will do well, just before starting, to drink a small quantity of hot broth or tea to stimu late circulation. _____ Over 100 Years Old.
