CONSTANCY. Although our bauds may never clasp In greeting With warm, fond pressure, whose de lightTbespeaks The heart's too sudden and too conscious beating That sends confessing blushes to our chocks* ? Although my lips drink not in draughts elysian The love that trembles in thy tearful eyes, And destiny with wondering, harsh de rision Doth sever all our dear remembered ties; Although our paths through alien lands are turning, Thine toward the sunrise where a new light gleams; Mine toward the sunset where all hope seems burning As night enfolds me with its bitter dreams; Although Fate reaches out with cruel ?uger And points to ways far off from thee and thine, My heart with thine in every grief will linger, Thy heart will answer every joy of mine. ?Daniel E. O'Sullivan in The Current. Women at a Watering-Place. But the 18-year-old maiden is prepared as for the marriage feast.

The Tarifl'. Editor Times and Demokrat: What we need in this country is more cotton and woolen goods, more hats, more shoes, more tools, more money, in fact more of everything than we have, and the way to get more of everything than we have, is to reduce taxation, open our ports to the world, and allow our citi zens to buv where they can buy the cheapest, and sell where they can ob tain the highest prices for what they have to sell. I have heard men of this country say, '?well there is no tariff on cotton, and why not make plenty of cotton, and sell it, and take the money and buy what we want." Geographically and numerically speaking, this is taking rather a contracted and diminutive view of the subject. True, there is no duty on raw cotton, but there is a duty on cotton frabrics and everything else which raw cotton is sold or exchanged for, except quinine, matches, coffee, and one or two other articles. And this duty on the things for which raw cotton is sold or exchanged in foreig...

I had lately returned to my native place after several years spent in travel, und was living ou my*uncle's little estate in Galicia. which was situated near the chief town of the district and uot far from the Russian frontier. When the weather was fine I used to hunt. When it rained I read Walter Scott. And as there were.some days when the weather, although not rainy, was anything but agreeable, these were usually passed in paying visits to such of the ueighboring families as had the good fortune to possess some part icu lar attraction at their residences in the form of a pretty woman or a graceful young girl. In order to make such visits, a new suit wa...

It bad bee a a sudden sickness and a dread ful giddiness that had caused Jenny to sink on the floor, from which she recovered soon after her father had quitted the house for his visit to Greystone school. The wild distrac tion in her eyes had repelled Mrs. Strang fleld, and for mercy and dread the mother asked no questions, but sat, silent and sighing, watching her daughter with piteous concern. Then her duties calling her, and thinking besides that solitude would be precious to suoh bitter grief as Jenny's, Mrs. Strangfleld gently left the room. No sooner was she gone than Jenny started to her feet, and paced about as though seized with madness, with a frown upon her forehead, and her hands pressing tightly bo low hor hipaC Full realization of what had befallen her had come to her heart, and she was driven by intolerable agony of spirit That Cnthbert had ...

"No Stories Wanted," reads the large, red-lettered sign at the entrance to the publication office of a leading New York story paper.

For many years old Uncle Jake had {kept a little tavern neur one end of the in lets where the sea. breaks tbrough the long eandbar into the Great South bay, a point About Of teen miles from New York. Of a pleasant Sunday in summer it was a pretty lively resort. Uncle Jake made a jovial ihost, and people used to say that he owed ills good health in a great measure to the frequency with which he drank to it him self. Most of the lishing parties from the larbors along the nay stopped here for a clambake and a cocktail; yachtsmen nn ' ehored near the inlet, and sportsmen ?would put up at the tavern for a week or two at a time. But in winter it was a dreary spot. The monotonous turmoil of the surf was broken only now and then by the shrill cry of a gull or the shrieking of the wind as it whirled across the bar. During t lie long storms only an occasional Wrecker or a patrol from tlio life saving Btation v...
