A HAPPY TRYST. With Madge the miller's daughter. * While song birds were a-wins, ••■',' I wandered 'mid the waving corn. With its golden tassrliujj; And down the crested hillside swept The yellow sunlight's tide. ' i''"'*:s;~x And 01 the gray old world looked bright As we walked side by side. With arm around her lissome waist, I whlsper'd words endearing; And sweet and low her answer came— . Almost too low for hearing; And bide and seek the frolic winds ' ; Play'd 'mid the rustling corn; ■ * And 01 our hearts with love were full On that fair summer morn. But ah, love's wings are very fleet. And sweetest hours have ending; Too soon we heard the old mill's sails Beneath their labor bending; , But long before we left the corn My gentle Madge 1 kist, fAnd 0! me thought its tasseled sheaves Had ne'er hid happier tryst. —Abrara Lent Smith A Pretty Little Scene.

. BumUo Women In the Past. In olden times the position of women in Russia was deplorable, and as else where, it has only i improved by de -fees. Herbci-tein declares that no lonian was deemed virtuous unless ■he lived in domestic seclusion and waS never seen outside home; and Jenlrinson says that, except on their w av to church at Christmas and Easter or when paying visits, it "was an acci j dent if y°u ever saw a Russian lady. This habit has survived more or less even tc this century, for Bremner speaks of the women as "guarded with Oriental seclusion," and Theophile Gautier attests the same thing. So j strong in the Sixteenth century was ] the prejudice against women that even fowls or animals killed by their hands were regarded as unclean; and often. ! if their husbands were absent, they j might be seen standing at their doors j and begging some passer-by to per form for them the butcher's office. Not infrequently the murder of I husbands avenged the maltreatment of wives; to mee...

BEAUTIES OF THE GREAT WEST. [•he Woiulrrful Scenery Viewed from an Arti-tio Standpoint. The beauties of the "Great West," of ,vhich poots have sung and artists I Raved, is an interesting theme when lescribed by the painter from the ar tistic point of view. J. K. Stuart, a member of this profession, whose i studio is in New York, and who spends ?very summer sketching scenery in the west, was at the Grand Pacific a few [lays ago. Every spring finds him headed toward the wonderful Rocky mountains. Last season he spent in Oregon, Washington territory and British Co- j lumbia. To say that he was en rapt- i ured with the marvelous beauties to ' be seen there would be giving his feel i ing the mildest forms of expression. He says the atmosphere is ! imply ray- j ishing, and to one of artistic sensibili ties it gives a hue to every scene of rock or earth or foliage that a painter would give years of life to be able to copy. From the Dalles to Portland, \ on the Columbia river, the scenery i...

The insignificant ! monument that covers his remains, and the tenth rate statue, if such it can be called, that adjoins it, are in a state of decay that does the greatest discredit to Goldsmith's fellow countrymen. On the one side of the stone is the inscription: "Hero lies Oliver Goldsmith," and on the other. "Born 10 Nov., 1728. Died 4th April, 1774." Many of the letters and figures on the stone are well nigh oblit erated, while the inscription underneath ' the statue it is absolutely impossible to decipher. This is no new tale. *;';?'

* „'■ .-.- Giant Glacier* of Alaska. The south western face of St. Elias, it i. safe to say. will never be climed; it resents a mass of broken snow, beauti ful vet forbidding.
