A SECRET.- - -.
v - mmmm y
It Is your secret and mine, love !
Ah inw ! how the dreary rain,
Whh a slow persistence all day Iodr,
Dripped on the wiudow pane!
The chamber was weird with, shadows,
And dark with the deepening gloom.
Where you in your royal womanhood "J
Lay waiting for the tomb!
They had robed you all in white, love
In your hair was a i in vie rose ; '
A marble rose it might Well hare -been.
In its cold and still repose !
O. paler than yonder earven saint,
XAnd calm as the angels are.
You seemed so near in, my beloved,
Yet were, alas, so far !
I -do not know if I wept. love.
Rut my soul rose np and said ; -"My
heart shall speak unto her heart.
Though here she is lying-r-dead!
I will give her a hist lof e-token , .
That shall be to ber a sign
In the dirk grave--or beyond it ! ,
Of this deathless love of mine."
So I sought me a little scroll, love
And thereon in eager haste, ' -Lest
another's eye should r ad them.
Some mystic, words I trated.
Then close in your clasped fingers,
Olose in your waxen hand,
I placed the scroll as an amulet.
Sure you would understand!
The secret is your's and mine, love !
Only we lwo may know
What words shone clear in the darkness
Of your grave no green and low,
But if. when we meet hereafter
In the dawn of a failure day.
You whimper those mystical words, love.
Jt is all I would have you say !

blank in a lottery went to bis death after
the following unique and elaborate pre
parations : He first procured a loaded
revolver and connected it with clock-work,
so that it should be fired off at a certain
time. He then got into bed, and, after
placing the pistol behind bis ear, took a
dose ot chloroform. Under the influence
of the narcotic he then went asleep. At
the given lime the dock work pressed the
trigger, discharging the pistol and launch

device is an accession to the plain self
