He Could Not Tell a Lie. It was the solemn poet man. Full haggard and forlorn, That came unto the editor One summer sunny morn. And placed within his jeweled hand, That erstwhile in a mood Of loving kindness written had Of foeman something good, Some manuscript, and seating then Himself in cushioned chair, Spoke boldly out, first smoothing down His tangled locks of hair. “I know full well,” the poet said, “That ofUntimcs it is The pain'ul duty of your craft To run their little sciesOrs through the thoughts of other men Which may not be expressed Within your columns—as, perchance, An antiquated jest. Or verses on an oil-lamp death— All these, I know, must fall Beneath the awful ban that spreads Above them like a pall. “But I have hero a little thing, Quito touching In its way, That tells of ripling waters And the smell of new-mown hay; The bashful maiden’s witching smile, The lowing of the kine ; The meadows, spangled o’er wit flow (re The sunset most divine, Are also pictured by the...

MEMENTOES IN HAIR. A Jeweler whose Wnole Time la Occupied In Mnklns Ualr Trinket*. “Trinkets made ont of human hair will always be popular and fashionable as long as love and affection have a proper place in the breast of humanity,” was the remark of a Philadelphia jeweler whose energies are entirely occupied in tne manufacture of hair mementoes and keepsakes. “Lovers are your best customers, I suppose?” he was asked. “By no means. My principal business is confined to filling rings or lockets, or brooches, with the hair of dead relatives or friends. Hair can be so easily preserved in the fornl of a trinket, and as it is something that once formed part of the deceased person, it cannot fail to keep green the memory of its natural possessor. Lockets are the most popular trinkets. The hair reposing between the glass is constantly in view, and is less likely to suffer from damage than in any other way. In the shape of a ring or a bracelet, it is liable to become frayed or coated with du...

( C*U What is Lore! What is true love ? I pray thee, O heart of mine, make known : “ Two souls with one emotion, Two hearts that beat as one.” And tell me how love cometh ; “ It comes and still extends.” And tell me how love endeth : “ That is not love which ends 1 ” And say, what love is purest ? “ That which no sell-love knows.” And when does love flow deepest ? “ When it the stillest flows.” And when is love the richest ? “ When most to give it moves.” And tell me how love speaketh ? “ It does not speak—it loves.” BATTLE WITH A SHARK.

The Spider and the Fly. Bo rotund and beaming, apparently kind, Type of generous living and smallness of mind, In each corner and crevice of alley or street This flourishing spider we everywhere meet, Entrenched and alluring, ’lore glittering arrays Of divers inducements in lavish displays. Brilliant I%’ day and gorgeous by night, Ensnaring each trustful and unlucky wight; Sporting unfairly with cobwebbed brain, Degradation and ruin add to his gain ; And helpless his victim squirms in fhe toils, While the huge spider his life-blood despoils. The incautious fly, once scorched and besmirched, In the torchlight—on ruin’s rough pinnacle perched, Slips down in a rapid and fearful descent, No help to the rescue—no use “good intent.” To a brightness of eye and faultless attire Boon succeeds a mad thirst, an eager desire That glares through the sight in demoniac hate, And the once proud mien now is a shambling gait. By vapid discourse and flattering thanks, The spider hourly adds to the ran...

AGRICULTURAL. For Headache. The sedative lotion is an excellent external application for the headache or neuralgic pains in any part of the body. Take two ounces of spirits of ammonia, two and a half drachms of tincture of camphor, and three tablespoonfuls of common salt and mix with them two pints of cold water. Put into a bottle when the salt is di«solved, and dip a piece of linen into the lotion and lay it on the aching head, or any part of the body where pain exists. Under a highsounding name this lotion is cold’ns a patent medicine in England, and it is much in use in France. • Air Slaked l.lme. Air slaked lime loses none of its virtues as a fertilizer by ceasing to be quick'lime. On the contrary, by being air slacked it is exactly what a limeless soil needs. It is the carbonate of lime, precisely what it was in the qnarry before it was sent to the limekiln. The fire of the limekiln drives out the carbonic acid, and leaves nothing but quick lime. By being exposed to the atmosph...

The Postman. The postman up the village street Should come this hour. Alas for me ! I hear no tread of nearing feet, No sound save wind and wandering bee The long vines stir ; how dim the room 1 A singio ray slants by my chair ; An insect, soaring in the gloom, Like a chance firefly flashes there. Be silent, heart! Adown the street The postman loiters on bis way ; The grass is green the flowers are sweet; The waving branches bid him stay. Perchance his love trips down the path. (So merely human, could he haste ?) Sweet, shining, hazel eyes she hath, Sweet lips in daelmg carmine traced. The postman comes ! At last, his feet! Oh Jagging steps, so faint, so far I Advance, lest my poor heart should beat Its warm, imprisoning walls ajar. He nears the gate ; his coat of gray And leathern bag make oath to it. Whore is my letter ? Hush I sway, A thousand lights before mo flit. The postman paces up the street With quickened steps. It cannot be An anxious face he dreads to meet ? He cannot gu...

THE TWO MISS AMBERLEYS. Within the vine-clad window two charming girls, in the simple attire that fashion prescribes for traveling. Without, a long, well-knit, masculine figure lies in the grass, face invisible, being covered by the owner’s hat. To him there saunters another gentleman, dark, stylish, wide-awake. “Hullo, Kingston! Wake up; got something to tell you; 1 ’ and he unkindly draws away the sheltering hat, disclosing a handsome, angry face. “Confound you! What makes you pester a fellow so in this warm weather?” says the victim, sitting up disconsolately. “Did I spoil your nap? Have a cigar, instead. 1 wanted to tell you of the new arrival, Aggie Amberlev, the great heiress, with her cousin and companion. There’s a chance for you to get a rich wife, my boy!” “Don’t want one. Hang this ci*ai! it don’t draw! A poor man like myself can’t afford to marry a rich wife.” “I should say that he couldn’t afford to marry anything else,” laughed the other; “and Aggie Amberley is a beaut...

Silver Hairs. Silently they steal upon us, Oft unnoticed, unawares, In the glow of life’s warm summer, Heaven’s blossoms—silver hairs. Tender thoughts that once wo cherished, Hopes and fears and loving cares, Treasured still, or long since perished, Leave their tokens—silver hairs. One by one we climb them slowly, Life’s ascending golden stairs ; Till at last, as with a glory, We are crowned with silver hairs. Zn the home of the immortals, Far beyond the radiant stars, Where no thought of sorrow enters, Where no imperfection mars. Where the good, ne true forever Each some glorious emblem wears, There the immortelles celestial Rest above bright silver hairs.
