A L'rniidslro's Itrcnui.
It is within my ingle-uook,
So old and gray, I know:
I close my eyes and backward look:
'lis fifty years avo
irs youth baa ll.d, or bops if dead.
And life's Nanus ruuuiug low.
The ChriatmaB bells are cbimtrg A6t
(Tin fifty years ago),
There comes the full of fairy feet
Across the trackless enow;
And hearts boat high, to pluaeurcs ni i; h ,
Just fifty years ago.
From cut the weird n.,n:or-hou?e
I see a golden glow;
And many voices welcome na
("Tis fifty years Ego)
A laughing band stand hand in band,
A crowd pass to and fro.
In hall and homestead, great and email
Sing blithely as thoy go;
The smile of one is smile of all
(Tis fifty years ago),
And hearts are light and eyes are bright,
That Christmas long ago.
A face looks out from wealth cf hair, ,
That waves o'er brow of suow;
And brown eyes droop with tbyest air
Tis fifty yoarB ago,
And cheeks are flushed and voices hushed
To nbippers swcot and low.
A kerchief crossed a swelling breast,
The heart that throbbed below
Grew restless with its own nnreet;
For. ah, how could yon know
That I loved yon, so nell, to true,
Just fifty years ego?
We trod a measnre through the hall
With stately steps and slow
Once more I hear yonr footsteps fall;
Your bright chocks brighter glow,
And yon aro mine, by right divine,
Of love, long years ago!
Vonr dainty cap, your golden hair,
Your muslin kercbiif'u suow,
Your tiny feet that cross the stair
Less swift tbau mine, I know;
All these I hear, and see, my dear,
As fifty years ago.
How fair you lookid! How fond I loved!
Tis weh it should bo so;
I gaze upon your picture now
Till tears begin tu flow;
And all ti e pant is li.ld as fast
As filty years ago.
It is not fifty years and time
Has stayed for u, I kuow;
We hear tho met ry Christmas chime,
We see the falling suow,
And hand in hand so closo we stand,
My love of long ago.
The voices sweet of friends who greet
Are cIobo to me, I trow,
Tue firo-glcams dauce iu radiant boat,
The holly-btrries glow:
I have tut dienmt of dayB I've epcut
fiiuco fifty year ago.
Alas, who stands demurely hero,
With eyes of tender glow,
Bo like tho eyes of you my dear,
la days of long age?
She. smiles, I weeu, at graudtire's dro.'.m
Of fifty year ago.
'I ilo solemnly.'
'Forever?' continue J tho Boleruti, brok
'Forever,' echoed tbo weeping maiden
by the bedHiele.
The wasted lmndx were raised over
the beads of the kneeling figures; the
pale lips of the dying womiin patted
the tongue tried to utter a blessing; but
all brightness faded from (he eyes. The
woman was dead.
Two young girls knelt at the bedside.
Constance Owen was tho name of one,
with sallow skin and largo brown eyes,
and Edith Ormoud, she was called, with
ringlets of gold floatiug around her fair
nack, and whose head was leaning npon
the shoulders of Constance, who had
promised the dying woman to be a sister,
protector mother even to the fair
maiden at her side.
The strong, faithful, homely girl
oallcd Constnueo was an adopted daugh
ter of tho dead lady one of thoae waifs
of tho street, whone only hoi e of life is
in the charity of some tender-hearted
trangor. Blie, however, repaid her
protector by a love and regard as filial
as that of her own daughter, and when
upon her deathbud Mrs. Ormond bade
Constance Owen make her the solemn
promise recorded, the brave girl not
only did not falter, but whispered onee
more to the stricken girl at her side:
'Ten, kUitli, for tho sake of the love
yonr dear mother gave to the orphan
will I love you better than myself for
ever. And darkness was in that chamber,
desolation in the hearts of the mourn
Two years passed two years since
F.dith the beautiful and Constance the
brave had lost their best earthly friend.
The former had grown more lovely even
than the protuino of the dawn of her
radiant maidenhood; the latter more
homely, larger-featured, in face, but
with the two years an added dignity of
ruoin, a more intelligent light in the
quiet, tender brown eyes, and foroe of
diameter better defined iu every move
ment. There carae many suitors to Bon
nybrnok bo the littlo country-seat be
longing to Edith was called but, so far,
the little coquette did not pay much
heed to any of them. BLe was chasing
tho butterflies of Fancy around that
Garden of E len first youth. But at
length her beauty, grace and perhaps
high sceial position, brought one day to
the pates of Bonuybrook one Doctor
Paulding, superior and rising young
phyiioiaD, who lived Sn the city close by,
and wlieu he had found his way t o thut
pleasant cuiutry ntxilr, somehow 1
discovered patients in that vicinity very
frcnttentlv. Was it F.lilh's fak face
that ruudo him tnko that, bloominp, .hinli
wny so often?
lie was indeed fasciuate.l by her
bright, girlish beauty, nud one nv suing
after he had becu wandering in thi . gar
dens, under tin) moon, soft pl naant
words mtiht have becu npoken, for nftor
he had kouo. Edith, with a Unshod fne
dashed iuto tho room whero C'jiistanee
was awaiting her, and throwing ha rnrms
around hor, said in a hnppy, frenbliug
'Oh! darlincr. I am sohnpiiy. Helms
told me ho loved mo.'
Constance ppoko not a word; E.lith
was hold a moment to a beating heart,
a soft kiss touched her forehf ad, ana
the next moment she wai alone.
Ho loves rael lie loves roe!" And
E.lith looked out over tho garden s from
which tho dews of night were distilling
all their odors; she gazed it the rewin d,
beautiful moon, and peopled the Hhado ws
with tho imago of the man who had 0 rat
stirred hor young life with the divino
music of love.
A month after tho pleasant confer siou
had beeu made, Edith was calliil tf the
mountains of Vermont to attend a dying
aunt, the only sister of her dear mother,
and tho had to proceed aionc, as Bonny
broeik would havo lacked a gunrdiau if
Constance had accompanied her--Dr.
Paulding's duties utterly denying him
Cjnstance was engrossed in her borne
duties and saw but littlo society, pave a
few rustic neighbors, who only ricom
mended themselves by their good., ens of
hoert, and certainly not by the brilliancy
of their wit or understanding. Once un i

with tho old ease, grace and spirit.
What had como between Constance
Owen and himself? Something Ui.'iph
uable. The noble womun found a fitrauge,
rare pleabtire in the society of the gifted
man; the scholarly man a sympathy with
the large hearted, intellectual wemnn
which he had never known or experienced
in any of her sex. 'True,' Le said to
himself, 'sho is not beautiful; indeed,
measured by tho rules of beauty, (die is
positively ugly. But who oau, gnugo

pause and think of that clinging tendril,
not as helping the growth of the oak,
but as drawing from its strength. Yet
from all snch thoughts as theso her
staunch and loyal heart would resolutely
turn away yet for ail this her speech

seemed only conscious that the hours

loyal woman. Yet how hearts delude
themselves. In the very pride of his

him. His impatient herse was biting
the rcugu old hitching-post and throw

He had been kept there four hours, and
be seemed more eager than his master
to leave Bonnybrook behind him. Tho
doctor idly plucked some heliotropes
as they strolled down the rose-bordered
paths, and mingled with the flowers
eome dainty mignonette and a vale bud
or two of the tea rose. At hut ho placed

Botanist. Here you have 'beauty in

and 'I am not a summer friend' that is
better than all. But you flatter with

'Not j ou,' he replied eagerly, almost
tenderly, and in a voice that somehow

Night vs. Days.
Iu the novel Tug (l.-au !issimAs,' now
running iu Sarilnv ', occurs this re
flective and tiuthful passage : Do we
not fail to accord to our nights their
true value ? We aro ever giving to our
days tho credit and blame of nil wo iV'
and mis-de, forgetting those hileut,
glimmering hours when plans nud
BomeliiUc-s plots aro hud; when resolu
tioi's aro firmed or changed; when
Heaven, and sometimes Heave'n's ene
mies, are invoked; wheu anger and evil
thoughts are rec-lbid, and sometimes
bate made to inflame and fester; when
problems nro solved, riddles guested,
aud things nindo apparent in the dart
which day refused to reveal. Oumihts
nre the Leys to our diys. They esphin
there. They nre also the days' cor
rectors. Nipht's leisuro untangles the
mistakes cf day's haste. We should cot
attempt to comprise our pasts in the
phrase, 'in thoso days;' we shonld
rather say 'in those ilays and nights.'
