After Many Days.
We read Aurora Leigh together
XX'e two, in the golden autumn weather;
The fire of the season was in our blood
Within and without it ws very good.
And what if I read It noft and low,
XVhew the rhythmic words would ebb and
With our own happy heart-beats to and fro,
And were all divine w.ttt the added glow!
And how yon wound your finger adown
The fsilirg length of my hair's Rent brown,
And yoa miled, in the pauses of the verse
"They ar getting entangled worso and
And was It my smile that drew yon nearer,
And 'tempted the whisper closer and clearer;
'Rut my heart is in a worse tanjle, dear,"
And I read the grand words an, calm and
Until the shadows went out with dsy,
And you bade me put the volume away,
"Becanae yo'j. are better than any b-KW"
And then but indeed I forgjt to look,
To see If the stars came down, or we
Were drawn up to their burning purity;
It was one of the two, they were all so ner!
TUey have been far, far, for many a year.
Do you mind you how we talked that night,
XX'i'.h the three b'.cjsed isles fall close in aight!
Yon have sailed oa many a ea since then
You have rea l tli9 best of books and men.
XYill yon say again a yon did that n'ght,
"You are belter than any book," with bright
And loving eyes that helped your speech?
Shall we be wliat we have been, each to each I
For I, if I could inir.e eyes
From naicr the light of that glad surprise,
Jdy h?art it kept on in its undertone
"You are better than heaveu cud earth, my
And I whose hunger of soul evermore
Has t;uetlone i through Eastern and Westere
For the deepest wisdom of books aa J taea

3Ir. Thornton returned homo at h!
usual midday hour, and as he p-.ssed
by I'.if! parlor door, he Rivy K" d tigh

iiijf oa the tofa with a book in her
hand. The whirr of his wife's cev.-in
mnchlne struck on ilia car at the rarue
moment. Without patisia;' at the
parlor doer, he kept on to tho room
horn xvhich cmac tie soitiul ol iiKiu
tsy. ilrs. Thornton did not ob rvo the
fiiti-unce of her liu-biud. She was
bending cloj down ovorhi' work,and
the noise of her niac'iin'j wr.s louder
than li is footsteps cn the floor. 31r.

Then xvhy oo you sit killing your
self there?" said Mr. Thornton.
Mr, Thornton's aspect was unusual
" "Wliat's the matter? Why do you
look so serious?" asked his wife.
"lias anything gone wron?" Mrs.
Thornton's countenance grew slightly
troubled. Things had gone xvrong1 in
her husband's businesj raoi-c than
once, and she fiad. learned the occur
ence of 'iisaster.
--Things are wrong nil the time," he
replied, in some impatience of man
ner. "Iu your business?" Mrs. Thornton
spoke a little faintly.
"No, nothing' especially out of the
wuy there, but it's wrong at home."
"J don't understand you, Harvey
what is xvrong' at home, pray?"
" Wrontr for you to sit in pain and
exhaustion o'er thut sewing machine
while itn idle ibiiig-htcr lounjres orer
a novel in the parlor. That's what
I xvish to say."
'It isn't Erne's fault. She often
asks to help me. But I can't see the
child put doxvn to household drud
gery, ilcr time xvill come soon enough.
Let her have a little ease and comfort

"If we said that of our sons," re
plied iir. Thornton, "and actsd on the
word, x hat eillcieiit men they would

"You are wronf? in "this thinjr all

Mu. Editor: Whenever yoa meet
Michael Archer, (Itock Bluff's long

and say good morning "Squire." For
that is what a good lonz petition is
going up to the County Commission
ers for, to have him appointed a Jus
tice of the Peace, ia the place of Jack
Graves, who has resigned that ofBce
and intends to remove from our town
to Fairbury, in Jefferson county. Jack
would have bee ready to movo ere
this time, but has been detained on
account of the sickness of his father,
Mr. Wm. Graves, xvho ha3 been very
sick with lung fever. We are noxv
glad to be able to state, that he is now
ia a fair way to recover, which was
thought very doubtful at first.
Dsath has again visited the family
of Mr. John Farthing, this time it is
his gob Charles, a young man groxvn,
he w;i3 buried last Sunday, the 15th.
This makes three deaths in the family
in two months and three days. His
son Sabastion was buried the 12th of
last December, and Mrs. Farthing, the
mother of the two young men, was
buried the 22d of January. There is
and has been a good deal of sickness iu
Litis x'icinity this vrinler.
Txvo more houses are being torn
down and taken out of town, this time
it is Win. llhoden, xvho has bought the
property of Lester Lampman, and is
removing the houses out to his farm
about threo miles xvest of town.
Mr. Eampman and hia brother-in-laxv,
TIios. 0. Smith, intend to move
to Platlsmouth to resido. We wonder
if you couldn't take our town in as a
suburb and save so much moving.
That Boss washing machine man
that xve apoka of, "salted" two of our
citizens to tho tune of five hunudred
dollars, for the territory in ten coun

are intending to try their hand at wash
