3$rw A TEST OF LOVE. It had blown a perfect huricane all day, and early in the afternoon the snow had commenced to fall, increas­ ing in violence until at 6 o'clock,when Lottie started home, Tottenham eonrt-road and the by-streets were full of drifts, the air was a blinding haze, and the wind fiercer than ever. "Oh, how pleasant home will look!" •he said to herself, pulling her collar op about her ear®, and tucking her music-roll securely under her arm. How happy I ought to be that I have it to so to, even if it is only a little room all by myself! What do poor girls do who have none, no work, no home—and no Robert?" Then she laughed shyly to herself, and blushed—a happy, rosy blush down inside the collar, and walked faster than ever. Home was quit® a distance but her fleet steps carried her quickly there, and the hall door had flown open in response to her latch-key, when, from somewhere in the darkness near, a voice came—a tremulous, pleading voice,—' Pity, oh, for the love of God...

•Thereare in all our lives episodes Which we should be glad to forget of Which we are so much ashamed, that we scarcely dare to think of theft, and When we do, find Ourselves hurriedly muttering the Worus we imagine we ougfit to have said, or making audi­ ble apologies for our conduct to the air and yet these are not always epi­ sodes which necessarily involve a tan­ gible sense of wrong done either to out aelves or to others. Some such epi­ sodes in a commonplace life, such as must have fallen to the lot of many men, we would here reveal. Once upon a time—to commence in an orthodox fashion—a man and a maid lived and loved. On the wom­ an's part the affection was as pure and generous as ever filled the breast a maiden on the man's as warm as iiis nature permitted. His love did not absorb his whole soul, it rather permeated his mind and colored his being. Like most men of his uncom mon stamp, his affection once given, was given forever. He was not of a ju­ bilant natui-e, nor did his...

Hayne of South Carolina, a poet whose performances ranked him with the masters of song, was a nephew of Robert Y. Hayne, senator from South Carolina, who met Webster in the great debate of filty years ago. If in a total vote of nearly 8,000, 006, the majority for the so-called Unionist cause in the United Kingdom is only a little over 70,000, it can hardly be said that the people of the country are overwhelmingly opposed to Irish home rule. An eastern journal complains that the base ball situation is becoming so demoralized that it is impossible to tell when an honest game is played, and it is broadly asserted that boat races, and even "agricultural hoss trots," are often tainted with fraud.
