I am fair with tbe Sunn of girlhood,
My heart is as light as air,
My futnre is brilliant with, promise
Of days wuioh will bold no care.
I am clothed in silks and satin,
The belle of the ball-room I,
While envious tycs are watching
As haughtily I pam by.
I am Unrolling in far-off countries,
Idling 'Death Italy's skies,
Eoohaurtfd with scenes that dolight me
Whene'er I may turn my eyes.
I have suitors yea, by tho dozen
Eueeliug so low at my feet,
While pride in my heart rnns riot,
.. And the bodbo of triumph is ewett.
'I am queen iu a lordly castlo,
With servants at my command,
' Ami Hie and comfort and pleasure
Close within reach of my hand.
Lol tbe Are ia burned to eitbors,
Tbe room is chilly and daik,
There's a well kuoffn step at the doorway,
For John is coming; and, haik!
The coo of my own dear baby,
Ljiug awake In her next.
And we welcome papa together,
I aud tho ohild ou my breast;
For though my castles have fallen,
And grandenr hag vaLinktd away,
No o,ueeu oould be prouder or richer
Than I with my dear ocos to-day.
"Conic, Helen, deur, go with us ti
the meadows to come home with
brother John do!"
And Lilly Leslie's voice grew plead
ing tis she watched the sobrr fact- of the
girl who stood in the door looking !own
across the cooi jrreen lawn that sloprd
away from the house toward tho river
"I wish school was not done. Is thi
what makes you so sober to day?" ques
tioned Amy in a whisper, as Lilly stood
looking wistfully toward the meadows
Before tho young governess could
answer Lilly called
"Will you come, dear Miss Helon,
and meet brother John? There ho is."
Helen Arnold shook her head, and
the two girls ran down to meet the tall,
sturdy young man, who seemed to bring
with him the scent of the hay that lay
freshly cut in the meadows. The beauty
and brightness of the summer seemed
doubled as he came up across the lawn,
li'teninj; eagerly to the clear, happy
voices of the girls.
llelea Arnold stood in the front door
way, waiting with a trembling yearn
ing to unsay the hasty words ot yester
day, but he gavo her no opportunity,
passing in nt the side door and seeminp
not to notice her.
All day, as Helen Arnold had toiled in
the little schoolroom she had though
of John Leslie, and wished (oh, how
earnestly!) that she had waited bifort
saying that "Xo," which she did not
mean. She began to fee) how loiu-1
life could be even among the pleasant
-i ghts and f-ounds of the country, ami
that her buoyancy and brii.'htnep.s of
spirit during the long hippy summer
had not been all on account of pleasant
and healthy surroundings. She went
into (he house and up to her room tu
hide her face ns she brooded over un
pleasant thoughts. One ot life's golden
opportunities had been offered her, and
she had cast it aside, and now it wa
gone forever. This was the lust diiy ol
her engagement as governess, and she
would soon be at home, and he wouiil
soon forget her. But perhaps he might
give her a chance yet to return a differ
cut answer. A blush mantled her pale
check, and the blue eyes grew strangely
dark and bright, as she went to the
mirror to arrange the gold brown hair
that fe 1 over her neck in graceful curls.
Shu Bmiled as alie saw reflected the
faultless picture, and with a new hope
went 1 wn to join the.Iamily at the
John sat in his accustomed scat, very
quiet as usual, but his eager eye drank
in the exquisite loveliness of tho young
girl's face and figure as she came round
to her place. lYrl.aps he read in her
downcast, tender eyes, Ihechimge that
had come over her, but he gave her no
intimation of it, and after suppr r, when
tWo children romped about her and
called brother John toj place a wreath
of wild flowers on her head, he showod
no signs of embarrassment or emotion,
but talked to her coolly as it she too
had been his sister. Helen was a little
angry. Is it n wonder? for she thought
ho had been trilling, and that she could
not bear. A tire blazed up in her deep
blue eyes, and burned brightly on her
soft checks. John watched her beau
tiful face and varying color, and gloried
in his triumph; but, oh.when was glory
not bought too dearly t He leaned over
her, and touched lightly her soft hand.
"lid you not mean yesP I know
you love inc. We shall be very liuppy."
" Impudent! Do I not know my own
mind? Love you?"
Anger prompted the words, nnd ns
soon as tliey were uttered she wished
they were unsiiid; but John Leslie
could not know it; and if he had, per
haps he would not have forgiven her
His face grew very paic, and he tur:n-d
away without a word. ;
Years pas-srd away, and fortune fa
vui'ed John Leslie. He became a sui-..5!-lul
merchant, nnd therefore was a
mark for m iirimonial speculation; but
still he troubled not his bend about
marriage. At last the pleasant, insinu
ating mammas, who talked to him so
sweety and affectionately about the
dear girls who were their trrcatest treas
urii", got to saving ut.kind things about
the "iiis old li.n helor" hctiind his
Lack. Of what Um- was it, to be sun , t
always Im h:t e yn prcMi'y t sueh a w
served old f Mow? Hi-seemed to care
uothing at all lor lad its.
Lilly thought surely at her wedding
with Dr. Mavmrd, brother John would
come out ot his retirement and make
some of the marriageable ladies of her
acquaintance happy thereby, and he
did ; but it was a short-lived happiness,
for it was a long time before he again
left his business.
The truth was but tho young Indies
did not stem to know it if John Leslie
and wanted to marry any one of them,
nr all of ihein together, he would have
Ifed them. Being well satisfied to let
flings tike their course he did not
r )ii!)lu himself mueli about what wna
.lassing outside of his busim ss, but
.iioddeJ Bteadily onward. Now, when
he went out to Dr. Maynard's, lie had
the little Lilian to caress and talk to, as
well as her proud and happy mamma,
and lie went oftener than before the
baby came. One day while baby sat on
her uncle's knee, Mrs. Maynard said:
"My old friend Helen Arnold is com
ing to stay awhile with us, John, and 1
want you to run out as often as you can,
for flie is so very quiet and reserved
that I want to stir her up n little. You
need not bo afriid of her talking too
much. She never does that."
John tossed the baby, and the baby's
mother was so pletisi d to see the little
one's delight, that she forgot her brother
did not reply. However, it was several
weeks before lie ventured to visit Dr.
Maynard's again. Thm it was only
after an an urgent entreaty from Lil
ian. " We are so lonely," she wrote. " The
doctor U away, and though Helen is the
best friend in the world, and baby loves
her so dearly ; I want you to come out.
I miss my dear old brother John. Do
come by the lu xt train. I will send to
meet you. Lilian."
Helen Arnold sat at the piano, sing
ing softly, and toiiehing the keys lightly ;
nd Lilian plnyid with the baby, and
laughed at In r running wajs one
niiuub the next looked out of the win
dow and fretted at John's delay.
" Dear me, 1 don't see why he doesn't
come!" and she went to tho window for
the fiftieth time and had almost began
to imagine something dreadful had
happened, when she suddenly whirled
round with a cry of delight.
"I was looking at a beautiful pie
ture," said John, in the doorway; and
as she sprang forward he caught her in
his arms and gave a return for the
caresses she showered upon him. He
fore she had time to think of Helen,
baby set up a cry of dciighl too, of
course. She ,vas such a knowing child ;
and her frightened mamma took her up,
and talking sweet baby talk to her, car
ried her up to the mirs 'rv- After she
was quieted and peliod n liltle, sl.e was
left with Susan, and Lilian ran down
to tho drawing-room to see "dear old
John," wondering all the time if he
would be polite to Helen.
"flood gracious!" This was all she
said, as she opened the door aghast.
What do you suppose she saw? There
was John, brown, handsome John,
sitting on tLe sofa, smiling, and ap
parently very happy; ami Helen Ar
nold, with a crimson face, sat quietly
in the shelter of his arms.
" Come in, Lilian darling, I want to
tell you about it. I have proposed,"
" Proposed!" said his sister,
"Yes," said John. "This is tin
Lilian laughed, nnd as she came up to
her brother , he drew her down beside
the in. Then he told her all about it,
and added :
"This time she has not said no; and
we will have a happy home, too, will
we not, dear Helen?"
And he turned his beaming face from
his sister to look at the lovely one upon
his shoulder, grown thiuner and paler
than when he saw her last, but now
most rweet and womanly, as he drew
the encircling arm closer about her.
He did not seem to think there was
any danger of a " No," nor did she, judg
ing by tbe confiding look she gave him,
at the same time saying, softly:
" I always thought you would ask me
again, so I waited."
John's face was but tho reflection ol
ihe happiness within, as lie answered :
"U seems a foolish thing to do, but
et I am not sorry I hat I proposed three
Lilian laughed, and ran upstairs to
ee the baby.
The ltoirns Pearls.
A cut'io.is stoiy is in 1 ..f a J.ib
street old gold man. A j.eiillcuian'v
individual onee called on him to sc. I ;i
pair of pearl eanings in n very heavy
old-fashi ined gold ctting. "The
pearls are bogus,'' he said. "My win
got them once when she had to raise
money on the rial otn-s." The dealer,
on this, simply stripped the setiiug of!
nnd paid a tew dollars for it by weight.
As the imitation pearls were a very
handsome pair, however, ho tossed
them into his odd. and ends box, on
the chance of a collet-tor's giving a dol
lar or two for them. The latter, as
soon as he saw them, a- ked :
" Why, where did you get these
" Out of a selling, ot course. They're
real beauties, ain't tiny "
"They ure, just, l'il give you three
hundred for them "
Tl.e dealer, who regarded the oll'i r a
aj ke of course, replied lauhhigly Iha:
he would not take twice as muto.
The collector then Increased his olttr

began to look serious, the old gold man

"THE A I'M) ttll-E."
Many a man a lit lo past tbe so-called
prime of life, looking at his pr-tty
youug daughter just blowomit g into
girlish beauty, loves hei nil the better
for the thought that comes to him, like
a thrilling realization of bis youth nguin,
that she is the very picture of what her
mother nvrs at her ajre. And tin n nti
unconscious sigh disturbs Liui u be
glances at tho mother, and i-eis the
havoc rhnt has been wrought in tba
cnee rnioolh fair fiico as the years have
been Hlipping by, faking mmy things
with them besides rosy bloom and dim
ples, bright teeth and lnxniiint locks.
He is not so fo dish us to complain of
the inevitable, to ask why sho caiitot
always be yonng, or to forgot that he
himself ht suffered a change, tba' his
forehead is very much higher than it
used to be, aud that Lis old NTcuding
coat NTsmld not by any means meet
across his sbonlders now. But, never
theless, he feels it a subject of regret,
even if ho does not acknowledge it to
himself, that wheu heauly dies, the love
of beauty does not die as well, or that
some other and more ratihfactory and
lasting beanty, the beauty of the hoiiI,
which transfigures the worn and weary
flei-b, does cot alwavs and rarely takes
its plaoe, Perh'ips he is bo fortunate,
Nvhen gazing in his wife's foeo, ss t see
this beauty of the soul that has grown
there, till now, illnmiuuting aud irradi
ating, it shines like a cnino burning in
an nlu ranter vase. Or perhaps, nn iu n
very few extraordinary instances it has
happened, the original beunty is all that
it ever was, even after the lapse of very
many years, and his only mollowe.l an!
deepened with time. But neither of
these rossibilities is a nnivt rsnl or fre
If, towever, ho som neither the origi
nal beauty, nor tho npirilual beauty that
has growa under tho discipline of life to
replace the other, there is 6ome reason
for his sighing; aud if any little ehado
of sslf-reproach minftlod with the fiih.
there would often again be retson.
For how many times has he paused,
for all his love of her, nnd thought, as
their youth was deepening into mi bile
life, how best to save that bloom on the
cheek, to spare that, smooth forehead,
to keep the old sweetness that be loved
round the eye and lip? Cares must como
in spite of him, cares luul griefs and
troubles, sinoe the tale of no one's life
is made wifhont them. Bnt has he con
stantly remembered to make himself
the wall against which they first should
break, or to be personally the means of
bringing none of them upon her? II s
his pride, his ambition, biH lovo of
pleasure, exceeded his means, unl re
quired her, in the effort for respectabil
ity, to do something much like making
bricks without straw? Has he allowed
his unquiet temper to keep her nerves
always at concert pitch, with fri tting
and fault finding and exi.e'ious, till she
has b' come little but nerves? H is ho
demanded of her in all her departments
a perfection that he has not reudero.l in
any of his? Has he given her auy cause
for conteaipt of him as for one curing
more fortating and dridktng thau for
anything else? Has he forgoHou all the
strain ouad dicate framo tint the birth
and bringing up of children are, not, t )
speak of homework or the direction of
servants, if she has them? Has be taken
care to remember that even if snppliol
with every bodily comfort, aud pjibaps
lnxury, her soul yearns for nnre after
the old tender ARMiriwveK and words of
admiration? Has he, in fact, just s.ifur
as in his poivcr, warded off trouble,
bronght home happiness, taken paii:s to
put on a smiling face when coming in
the door, and added to her stojk no un
Of course almost very wife knows
that she is indispensable to ono phase
of her husband's contentment, t the
managumeut of his fond juat as the ex
periecc5 of years has tansht her his
fasti s, the care of his clothes, the cheer
fulness of his home. But the ro is lo
wifo living who does uot long to be made
constantly aware that she is indispensa
ble to him for herself, and herf elf alone,
as well as all the rst, anl there sr - tco
many wives dead for no otber reason
than that the SRsnrare-is foiled to come,
aid so life lost its savor, and they slip
ped out of it unheeding and nnho ded.
That husband ho wants to see the
beanty of yonth ou the "anil wife's"
face, or as mil Mi of it as tbe positive
awsof nitnrecan spare him, h-ts loa led
ber with no care that eould be avoid 1,
and if he eonld not g-vo silk gowns nnd
plnra cakfs, has soi n to it that ho gave
her no anxieties either. Physical bur
dens greater than the streugth do much
toward uu lermiuing tho good bioks of
youth, bnt ther are, other destroying
influence1! inoie potent yet. It i- nx
ioly and tho wear and tear of tired out
nerves that whiten and thin the hair,
that engrave the lie.es upon the fore
head and about the mouth, and that, far
sooner than time would do it, make the
weary muscles fiascid, and let down all
the pump roundness and lovely curves
into loose skin, and call the bln-xl from
th cheek to the aching hf art. The
wife, too, Nvhoio hnsb.iu 1 doei uot now
sod then glance at her teeth, is apt to
let the time for going to the dentist slip
by; whose husband do-,s uot ever pass a
caressing hand over the hair, cease to
cure how it is drrFsed. "There is much

asked him why he did uot advertise in
