To kindle all my aoe with sudden flame,
And all my heart with secret rapture iill.
I listen calmly to it, wondarlc j
Where vanished they taoau old time hopes and
That used to blanch 1117 cheek or swiftly bring
Before my sight a blinding mist ot tears.
I meet the eyes now. tranquil, unconcerned.
Where once a single friulit-med kUdc I stole
Those eyes that long a a pathway Imrned
Into the inner temple of my souL
I hear the old, familiar voice, unmoved,
Whose faintest tone was music in thai, day;
No quickened pulse proclaims the voij beloved,
- My quiet heart goes steadfast on its w ay.
No bitterness, no shadow of re;;!
Comes up to mar my peac9 wi.Ii secnit doubt;
I would not live th3 past usain, nor yet
Be quite content to have it blou.it I out.
Wan niem'ry, hovering near th-. far-yflf i;rave
Of our youajj love, calls back, across t to waste.

Thy lif wis bittar. but thy rest U svre it;

It is approached by cono save unshod feet.
DEACON VS. PAESON.
The Rev. Josiah Franklin Sqaintye bad
only accepted the pastorate of thp Porcu
pine Hollow charge three months jirevious
to the time of which we write, yet daring
this time the parson had made a great host
of friends especially ii this assertion true
so far as the female portion of his flock
It is a well established fart that the two
pie of Porcupine Hollow believe and prac
tice the doctrine of liiarryinar. and multi

fullest sense of the term, and if 11 man's
wife dies he has another selected to take
ner place by bis fireside Ix-fore I. is "late
lamented" get3 cold, so that accounts for
the scarcity of widows and widowers in
As before intimated, the parson was cut
ting a big swath among the marriageable
women of bis charge, lu some manner
the intelligence preceded him that he was
a baciielor, and the fair members of his
flock formulated a series of resolutions,
eacn in ner own imua, to outrival her sis
ters. r.very art known to the feminine
mind was brought into requisition, and
lor two months it would have bisen ex
tremely difficult to conjecture who would
gain the ultimate victorv.
After two months had flown by on ranid
wings, however, the parson's heart lay at
the feet of an unpretentious but lovable
damsel, aud for the next month bin atten
tions were given to her exclusively. That
fact bad caused many of the good sisters
to grow green with envy, because one of
iucir more mouesc numoer liart won so
much attention from the parson, while
they were left at the mercy of the few
eligible men in the matrimonial market
Outside of this there had been iothiug
to mar tne rraternal harmony of the par
ish, nor had anything of an exciting char
acter happened since the parson's 1 id vent.
On Saturday evening, however, Deacon
Derby sentjfor the parson to visit his wife,
who was then wading out into the chilly
waters of death, and she passed over the
divide in a few minutes after the arrival
of tne parson.
The parson tried to console the deacon
on the ground that this loss was his wife's
gain, and spake in very flattering terms of
the departed, to which the deacon replied:
la-as, Mndy wui! er mighty djotiful
wife, an' wuz er mos' powerful hard wurk-
er, an' only las' week she bned th ir ter
backer down in ther bottom field, cut ther
sprouts outen the noo gronn' corn c n ther

"Oh," said the parson. "I know it would
i le hard to find her equal, and reali e that
ou will miss her very much, but her lot
here was full of lalwr, and now that she is
t rest you shnuid look forward to the time
vi lien you will meet attain."
f "Ya-as, mebbe t hat air so, but it do 'pear

now, my dear brother, and then your wife
was a faithful Christian, and has gone to
that blissful clime where the weary are at
rest, and therefore we should be nlaU even
in our sorrow for her blessed hopo of a

"That 'pears ter be all ye preacher fellers

"I will do so," said the parson, "but
when will the funeral take place?"
"Termorry, o' co's."
The funeral was largely attended , and
being the first at which the parson bad
officiated in the parish he delivered aa elo
The next uay bait a dozen men were

"Get out of here, I tell you," shouted the
girl, as she made for bim with the broom,
and he got up and shook the dust of the
Wells plantation off his feet.
Returning home he took a short cut
through the mountains, and as he passed
along the narrow path under the bluff on
the river bank he met the parson, who, un
conscious that they were rivals, extended
his hand to the enracred ilpumn Tnt in.
stead of grasping the parson's hand the
ueacou uegan to tate on bis coat, and said:
"Say, parson, yer've got me ter whup."
"What in the world is the matter with
you, I should like to know?"
"Thar's matter ernuff. I'll whup ye er
yell whup me, one er tuther."
"Why, man, what have I done to incur
your displeasure in such a manner?"
"Done ernuff, an' I'll pitch ye offen ther
bank inter the river," and be caught the
parson in his arms.
The parson was by far the smaller man,
but he decided to stick to the deacon closer
t han a brother, while the irate dearnn
-roenced backing off toward the bank, and.
is ne thought, to burl the little parson into
the cooling stream, they both fell over, and
the parson seemingly rode down the em
bankment on the carcass of the deacon.
The water was not very deep, but the
parson was the best man of the two in the
water, and after dipping the deacon under
three times he asked:
"Have you got enough?"
"Then I'll put you under until you do,"
and he dipped him three times more, and
the old fellow yelled:
" 'Nuff. Lemme outen yere."
W hen both were out and standing on the
bank the parson said:
"Well, deacon, as the matter is now over
I would like to know what I have done to
make you treat me in this manner?"
"Wal, ye've did a right smart. Fust,
ye've spiled ther gal I wui er goin' ter her

"I have done nothing of the kind."

for the parson, who was standing between
bim and the water, but the sprightly par
son stepped to one side and the deacon
went in head first.
"Now," said the parson, "I'll keep yon
in there until next Sunday if you don't
take that back,"
"IH never cutter," said the deacon, but
the parson was firm and pushed him off
every time he came near the bank, and at
last the deacon said:
"Wal, mebbe I wuz er jedgin ye wrong,"
and the parson helped bim out, and each
man went his way home.
A month after that the parson and Ma
lindy were married, and when the deacon
heard of it he said, regretfully:
"It's purty dadgasted hard on er feller
w'en his wife's gone an' died jes' w'en ha
needs er wife ther wust, an' 'specshally
w'en ther crap's sufferin'; but w'at I hat
