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

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."

"Johnnie," quoted the socialist agitator
to his ten-year-old, "did you sell that old

"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.

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?"

A Story WliicU Throws That off
Gulliver in the Shade- Ruled by
Savaje Women.
"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.

He Certainly rut His Foot In It.
Chicago Tribune.
A prominent Chicago real estate man and
his partner were the best of friends, and
their intimacy extended to personal as well
as business matters. His partner was a
bachelor, and was In the habit of reading
him letters of an ardent and affectionate
nature from- a young lady who signed
herself "Susie." The hero of the ston
went away on an extended trip and re
turned just in time to attend the wedding
of his partner. Wishing to show his good
will he sent the happy couple a wedding
present and at the wedding reception
stepped gallantly forward to pay his re
spects.
"1 hardly feel like a stranger," he said
in his sweetest tones, addressing the bride.
"In fact, I feel as though I ought to be
quite well acquainted with my partner's
wife, since he has often done me the honor
to read me extracts from his dear Susie's
letters."
The faces of the husband and the speaker
■were studies as the bride drew herself up
and said emphatically and distantly:
"I beg your pardon, sir, my name is
Helen."
Seasonable Hot Drinks.
"Locomotive" is a trifle complicated; bat
is merely made up of half an egg yelk, a
tablespoonful of honey, a dash of cloves and
curacoa. whisked thoroughly together in a
quarter of a pint of hot Burgundy.
A bishop is a good, warm drink for win
ter, but it is something which is better man
ufactured at home than called for over a
counter, as it requires more or less prepara
tion a day or two before it is made. You
take a lemon — four of them, and roast
them, and after laying them on the bottom
of a punch-bowl, buried in half a pound of
white sugar and three glasses of port wine,
you cover the bowl and let it stand for
twenty-four hours. Now, boll the rest of
your bottle of port, press the juice out of
the lemons with a tablespoon, strain it put
it into the boiled wine and drink it warm.
For an apple toddy take half a baked
apple, tablespoonful of white sugar, wine
glass of cider brandy and hot water to suit
the taste. ' * -/■ .

So Did He.
Detroit Fre e Press.
An agent for the sale of rugs bad rung
the door-bell of a house on Montcalm street
several times when a man came to the door
with a squalling baby under his arm and
ashed what was wanted.
: "I'd like to see the lady of the house!"
was the reply.
"And so would I! She ran away three
days ago, and I'd like to see her long
enough to give her a piece of my mind
about leaving this howling kid behind
her."
