Do you know my sweetheart, sir?
She has fled and gone away ;
r ve lost my love ; pray tell to me
Have you seen her pass to-day?
Dewy bluebells are lier eyes :
Golden corn lier waving hair ;
Her cheeks are of the sweet blush-roses :
Have yon been this maiden fair?
White lilies are her neck, sir ;
And her breath the eglantine;
Her rosy lips I he red carnations ;
Such is she, thu maiden mine.
The light wind Is her laughter :
Ihe murmuring brooks her song ;
Her tears, so full of tender pity.
In the clouds are borne along.
The sunbeams are her smiles ;
The leaves her footsteps light ;
To kts e.ch coy llower Into life
Is my true love's delight.
I will tell ye who she Is,
And how all things become her,
Bend down, that I may whisper,
My sweetheart's name is Summer."

BT SIDNEY TUORNE.
So Aunt Susan had left me heir of her
little all. I had often been to the small
house in the out-of-the-way country vil
lage, and it must have been that my via
its had pleased lier. At any rate, in the
letter I now held, she wrote :
"My Dear IIehjiekt: I havn'tmueh
to leave, as my annuity dies with inv; but
my house and furuiture, such as it is, I
wish you to have. Of ail my nephews,
you have been the only one who lias
seemed to care for nie. and 1 w ished my
possessions were more valuable for your
sake. You are at liU-ity to sell the house
if you wisli and a!l it contains, excepting
one thin";, and that is the picture of my
giaudiiiotlu-r, which was left me in lier
will. That I have always valued, and I
would like you to value it also, for my
This was part of the letter handed to
me by the lawyer, when I came to my
aunts on receiving news of her death.
I had entered into my inheritance, but,
as Aunt Susan had said, there was cer
tainly nothing of muc h value. The house
was old and rickety, and the furniture in
the last stages of wear. Before the pic
ture in the sitting-room I paused. It was,
as I remembered it before, a full-length
portrait of a very handsome woman with
a dark, haughty beauty, dressed in a rich,
old-time costume of velvet and lace, and
with diamonds around her white neck and
Leaving things in old Margery's charge
I went back to uiv ollice in the city.
There I found a little note on my desk,
inviting me trie following week to "Cragg
head,"' .Mr. Uoscoc s county seat to attend
a garden party.
i must now describe the girl whom for
a vear I had loved to distraction (though,
as I felt) hopelessly

her father during one of my business

TL-ith an introduction to his daughter. Mr
ltosroe was a selt-made man, one to wnom
the "chink, chink, c hink " of gold was
sweeter than any sound beside, as one
could easily see. I had in some way lounu

the slightest that the poor struggling law

I took the day boat and arrived at
"Cragghead' late in the afternoon. Ihe
partv was at its lull neignr, ai:u, auer
making myself presentable, I sauntered
down to find my host and his daughter.
Such a cordial "rasp ot the nanii I naa
seldom seen Mr. lioscoc bestow, and then,
after conversing a few moments, he said,
it seemed to me a very significant tone,
"Have vou seen Adrienne yet J"
Just then the came toward us. 1 naa
never shown by word or look my darling
love; but as she approached in an ethere
al costume (which surely could nave ieen
fashioned by none but fairy fingers) 1
stood rooted" to the spot, every motion
merged into one wild wi.-h to then and
there throw myself at her feet and declare
But ot course all 1 did was to take tne
sweet hand so frankly extended, and utter
a few words of greeting. Just then a
group of gay girls flitted towards us call
ing "Adrienne!"' and in their midst she
was wafted away.
My host and I wandered to a grove near
by, and under the shallow of an old elm
we seated ourselve?. Mr. Boscoe had al
ways lcen polite and courteous to me, but
to-day I felt a difference in Ins manner,
and by-and-by something he said sent the
blood bounding at fever heat through my
Laying his hand (with the large soli
taire on the little finger) confidentially on
my arni, he said :
"Herbert, I think a father s eye cannot

In surprise I looked into ins lace, ana
then with a sudden w ild hope at my heart
as I saw the benignant, kindly look with
which he regarded me, I told him all
how passionately I worshipped Adrienne,
and that it was through tear that, because
of my poverlv, I w ould be no fitting mate
for her, I had not ventured to ueciare my
feelings. As I spoke, a rather jecu.iar
smile oassed over his features, but it van
ibhed quickly, and in tne same Kiuuiy
tone lie replied:
"Mr. Lisle, you underrate yourself.

So I was free to love, and, if jossibie,
to win the oueen-lady of mv dreams.
Not then, while my pulses throbbed so
w ildly, could I trust myself to express my
sentiments in fitting words. Evening
came. Surely such a fairy scene never
existed on this prosaic globe before. A
flood of golden moonlight paled and put
to shame the myriad ot colored lights,
which made the spacious grounds as light

There were snowy flowers in her liair,
and with the moon's pale beams bathing
in an almost spiritual radience the white
robe which fell softly and clingiugly about j
her, and disclosing the rapt glow in her
sweet, fond eyes, it was no wonder that
she seemed to me not a mortal, but like
unto the angels.
The following day we parted, and Mr.
Roscoe himself drove me down to the sta
tion in his stylish dog-cart, drawn by a
spirited team of bays.
"Truly how different he is," I thought,
"from what I have always judged him to
"Come acrain soon, Herbert," Adrienne
had whispered, as I pressed a kiss upon
her lovely lips.
My ollice seemed meaner ana auuer
than ever before when I entered it, and,
sitting down I tried to realize wnat a
change had come to my future within the
last lew hours. Then I settled down to
business again. No hanger-on upon a rich
father-in-law would I be, and if I meant
to have a home and a wife, I must work.
The davs passed latnnnjily along, until
the time came in which I intended to vis
it "Cragghead" again. But that morning
the postman Bonded me a letter, a large,
cream-tinted, monogrammed enveloiio
with my name Herbert Lisle in a uoia
hand. I opened and read. Then how
long I sat there in the same position i
know not; tut wnen i came uacs. i my
self, and chanced to glance up into the
dingy little glass hanging over my desk,
I vaguely wondered if that pale, drawn
face could be my own.
"I was deceived," the letter ran, "and
mv daughter was too. Ve heard ol an
inheritance left to you by a deceased aunt.
and have only just ascertained its amount.
It is out of the question that Adrienne
should marry a poor man " and so
"I was deceived, and my daughter was
too." Could it be that Adrienne was mer
cenary? In sudden fury I cast the cruel
letter from me. Then a man's hard, bit
ter tears rose to my eyes, and leaning my
head on mv desk. I fought them back. A
fentle. footfall came un the stairs, through
the narrow hall, and paused at my door.
Some one tapped.
"I am engaged," I cried, in a voice I
tried to render calm; but the door opened,
anil there, enveloped in a dark mantle,
with a veil cociing her face, was a slight
It was Adrienne! She flung back her
veil and sprang to my side.
'Herbert, my love! I have come to you.
What care I tor riches? Make me your
wife now! for then nothing can part us.
I clasiMHl her convulsively to me; we
kissed each other, and then holding her
awav, I looked into her tearful eyes.
"Adrienne," I said, solemnly, "do you
realize that you will leave a life of luxury
to be a poor man s witef
"I have made up my mind," she an
swered, resolutely. "It is the only thing
I can do. My lather declares that in a
week's time he will expect me to marry

less than half an hour's time we were man
Adrienne wrote to her father, telling
him of what she had done, and pleading
The auswer said : "When I can visit
Mrs. Lisle in a home as handsome as the

not till then, will I forgive my uudutiful
We were happy, my wife and I, in the
little home which was my inheritance, and
after awhile a visitant strayed from Para
dise to till our hearts with her cluldisli
grace and beauty. The little one used to
sit for hours before the portrait of mv an
cestress. The dark, haughty face seemed
to. fascinate her.
One dav, as I sat quietly with Adrienne
by my side, on the piazza, a sudden crash
brought us both to our feet Then came
a child's cry of distress. We both ran to
the sitting room, whence the sounds had
proceeded. There on the floor lay little
Addic, almost concealed by the great pic
ture, which had tollen lrom its lasten-
After Addie had been picked up and
consoled, I turned my attention to the
mischief which hod been done. As I
raised the heavy picture, the broken frame
fell apart, and a long, narrow, oblong
uackaire dropped at my feet. Adrienne
stood with wondering eyes, as, after re
moving the wrappings, a leather case was
What a strange hiding-place ! and what
can it be? she cxcloimcd.
It was opened, and there before our
dazzled eves flashed a necklace of dia
monds. Three rows of large brilliants,
each having one magnificent gem for its
central ornament; and a pair of old lash
ioned bracelets, studded with the same
priceless stones. I could not estimate the
value of this discovery, although I knew
it must be immense. In the case was a
paier, and on it was written:
".My wedding jewels.
Jst SAN DlNSCOMB."
And as I read, I remembered hearing of
the creat fear of robbery, amounting at
most to a mama uion tne sunjeci, which
, . ,i i i.

and ot the strange places lrom which tne

So Adrienne and 1 found ourselves rich
neople. The iewels realized lar more than
I imagined they would; and, by buying
more ground, on the spot ot the old house
I bunt sucn a nonie as jarienne was ut
ted to adorn.

We did not tell him of the difference in

Washington, May 20. The mes
sage announcing the veto of the legis
lative appropriation bill was received
in the House to-day about 12:30, and
read at once. The reading was listen
ed to with marked attention, as no
part of the message had been made
public. The passage which refers to
the usefulness of the election laws in
lt76 was received with a shout of de
rision oh the Democratic side and ap
plause on the Republican side. Mr,
Cox wanted the paragraph read over
again, but Randall w ould not allow it.
As soon as the reading was finished a
formal vote was taken, and the veto
sustained. The messaage was referred
to the Judiciary Committee.
The Democrats will have a general
caucus soon. How soon depends tipor
the tide of sentiment. If the caucus
shou.d be held now there would be
general break-up, so it is postponed to
avoid l oth. There are several plans,
each of which has its advocates, and
so marked is the differencu of opinion
upon the proper course of procedure,
that the Democratic Committee of
Safety dare put none of them to thw
test. The plans are as follows:
The first is to pass the appropriation
bills, pure and simple, issue an address
to the country, which Proetor Knott
had ready, and adjourn.
The second is. to pass a joint reso
lution continuing the appropriations'
on the basis of those last year until
Jan. 1, renew the struggle at the next
session, if the fall elections favor ther
Democrats, and abandon it if the Re
publicans are. successful.
The third plan is to pass the legisla
tive bill, divested of all extraneous le
gislation, except the jurors' test oath,
and let the army bill fail.
The fourth plan is similar to the
foregoing, except that, instead of per
mitting the army bill to fail outright,
it is proposed to impose such condi
tions upon the use of the money ap
propriated as will restrict the trans
portation of troops, and prevent the
President from iuoviug them at pleas
Uie. The fifth proposition emanates from
ti e irreconcilables, and i3 to pass nci-
hrr bill and adjourn.
