Never again will the roses blow
For us as the roses we used to know.
Oh I never again will the wide sky hold
Such wealth of glory and sunset gold ;
And never again will I whisper, dear.
The pleasant fancies you smiled to hear ;
And never again, at the day's decline.
Shall I sit with your little hand in mine,
And look at the beauty of sunset skies.
And the sweeter beauty of your sweet eyes.
Never again ! for the dream is done
That a word. and a look, and a touch begun.
Love, if we always could dream, ah, then ! -
The words are as sad as "it mifcht have been !"
For us there is nothing but memory.
In the coming days, of what could not be !
Love, you are near me, and yet as far
As the round earth is from the furtherest rtar.
Kiss me and smile in my eyes once more,
Tho your lips should quiver and tears ruu o'er
Put your band in mine for one moment, one,
And then, good-bye, for the dream Is done !

Small birds chase each other about
in filav ; but, perhaps, the conduct of
the crane and the trumpeter is most
extraordinary. The hitter stands ou

tric manner, and throws somersets.

dive after each other, and clear the

enjrage in sham battle, or trial of
strength, by twisting their horns to
gether and pushing for the mastery.
All animals pretending violence in
their play stop short of exercising it;
me uog takes the greatest precaution
not to injure by his bite; and tho
ourang-outang, in wrestling with his
Keener, pretends to throw Jam. and
makes feints of biting him. Some ani
mals carry out in their play the semb
lance ot catching their prey. Young
cat.?, for instance, leap after every
small and moving object, even to tho
leaves strewed by the autumn-wind.
They crouch and steal forward, ready
for the spring, the body quivering and
mo tail vibrating with emotion: thev
bound on the moving leaf, and again
spring forward to another. Benger

busily employed in a garden gathering
peonies, ana witn much solemnity and
a studied air burying them in a holo

triumphantly, and set off for another.
On examining the spot, a poor toad

A Scotch advocato writes a pleasant

greasy. Then in summer they are hot
and tight on the head. Yet we all
wear them. We are not compelled to
do so. We must wear a gown; that
is our mandate. The abolition of the
gown I shall regret. Its several parts
involve not a little curious history.
For instance, we carry at the back of
the gown a little pocket which, though
still worn, is now sewn up. The ap
pendage takes you back more than
three hundred years to the days before
the Reformation, when the advocates
were churchmen. No churchman was
allowed to accept a regular payment
for his services, liut.it he was pro
hibited from handling the money, that
was no reason why you, if you wanted
your case particularly attended to,
should not put a couple of gold pieces
into the bag which he carried at his
back. So you sec we still have some
relics of the past surviving in this re
forming age. Many of our names even
strike a stranger as peculiar. The offi
cial head of the B ir is called 'Dean of
the Faculty.' Ah," said Sidney Smith,
when he heard the title for the first
time, 'that's very odd now. With us
in England our Deans have no facul
ties Absurd as these old customs
and names may be, it cannot be denied
that the country has reason to.be
proud of her judicial arrangements,
not merely in the Supreme Court, but
down to the humblest judicatory."
New York Times.
About eight years ago an alarm
reached the Chief Folh-.c office in Lon
don that jewels of great value had
been stolen from a lady of hili rank
while a guest at a q'liet northern coun
try house. A handsome reward was
offered, and not long afterward it bo
CHiue known that the property had
been recovered. Astounding as it may
seem, it U nevertheless true, that the
temporary a pproprla: or of these line
things was a million tire Peer, who,
albeit in nowise pi-ntirious, is singu
larly simple in his personal habits,
and does not ppend one-lour. h of his
income. The matter was all hushed
up, and very few persons o'itsid the
family knew who the thief, if we can
so call him, really was. This was a
genuine cise of kleptomania, aud
proves beyond doubt that it re.illy ex
ists. An'English Earl of high dis
tinction had this weakness from boy
hood, and it iuvoived his leaving
Eton. When, in after years he enter
ed the Cabinet, it was' rumored that
Lord had entirely conquered tho
propensity, "except that at a Cabinet
council he never could resist 'Dizzy's
new green kid gloves. The alarming
disappearance of wax caudles at the
Traveler's Club, London, some years
ago, caused much dismay. The mys
tery was at length solved by a mem
ber of the Committee seeing the old

Cutting the Tops of Trees.
A correspondent writing to the Cot
tage Gardener says: "Excepting with
the more experienced cultivators, a
practice, on receiving trees from the
nurseries is to reduce the tops consider
ably. This is a common practice with
some growers, but a greater mistake
could not possibly bo perpetrated.
The more branches and foliage a tree
is allowed to carry the more roots it
will make, and tho less chance is there
of its producing strong gross shoot:
but on the other hand cut it back, and
its growth and strength are concent rat
ed in a few buds that start away most
strongly in the Spring. Healthy trees
such as are generally supplied, if plant
ed early, will always alTonl. plenty of
shoots io choose from without having
their tops reduced. We never shorten
under any circumstances, unless it be
the extreme tips not quite right, or
any bruised through packing or car
riage, but plant with the branches al
most entire mid properly laid in and
trained. By this treatment they cov
er more than double the space the first
year than they otherwise would, aud
bear in less than half the time, and we
are sure that those who may feel dis
posed to give this system a fair trial
will never resort to the old practice
Jersey Cattle for Beef.
Correspondence American Cultivator.
It seems to be a prevalent idea that
Jersey cattle are of no account, except
for their butter producing qualities;
that it is not profitable to raise them
for meat. This is an error. My expe
rience has taught me that Jersey cattle
not only make a much finer grade of
beef than other cattle, but that they
are very profitable for that purpose.
They consume less while growing than
the largo-boned Durham cattle, and
come to maturity earlier.
This last season I had an Alderney
calf "of the male persuasion," and not
desiring any veal, and with something
of a prospect of a sale for stock pur
poses, kept him along with only a fair
amount of food for a growing animal.
I kept him until upwards of ten
months old, the latter portion of the
time giving somewhat better feed and
larger quantities, but never feeding
him high. When I had him killed,
the dressed meat weighed a little over
150 pounds, which I call good weight
for an animal of that age. Every one
who partook of the meat, and the
number was not small, declared it to
be the finest they ever tasted.
Last fall I had a Jersey cow whoso
teats were so small I thought best not
keep her for milk. When sho was
taken in from pasture she was in good
condition. I put her in the stable, and
fed her upon good hay and gave her
but little meal, perhaps 150 pounds.
I kept her until the last of December,
when 1 had her killed and sho dressed
off some 540 pounds of the handsomest
meat old butchers say they ever saw.
Certainly I have never seen anything
ahead of it. The lean meat was very
rioh iu color, and the fat looked the
color of the richest Jersey butter.
while it retained its rich color when
baked or broiled. The taste of the fat
meat was rich and sweet, entirety dif
ferent from the tallowy taste of ordi
nary fat beef.
It is agreed by au epicureans who
have been so fortunate as to feast ou
good well-fatted Jersey beef, that it
tar excels any other beer that is pro
duced in this section of the country or
is readily obtained anvwhere. Tho
corned beef very much resembles the
far-famed Gardeners Island beef.
Even with Jersey beef at tho same
price of other beef it is fully as profit
able to raise the Jerseys for the rea
sons before stated. Again they ma
ture quickly and consume but little
food in fact they have not the amount
of waste bone, aud coarse tissue tViat
coarser cattle require feed to produce.
My experience has shown they d pro
duce a good quantity of meat per ani
mal. Curiosities of a Yankee Will.
In tho old records in the Probate
Court much that is curious may be
found, but there is nothing more pe
culiar than the will of David Ogden,
who kept a tavern where the Tontine
Hotel now stands. The will was
made in 1789, and contains the follow
ing: "In the name of God, sole Governor
of the worlds, the Holy Ghost, tho
twelve apostles, saints thrones, pow
ers, virtues, angels, arch-angels, cher
ubims and seraphims, amen I, David
Ogden, of New Haven in the State of
Couuecticut, being in. uncommonly
good health and spirits and in my
right mind and wits, do in the follow

not what all besides I commit when

clothes to its deep, dark, silent grave.
Tis a dismal house I am to dwell in,
yea, verily a mournful one ; therefore,
the dress for mourning is the most
E roper one for me. Then let this
ody be dressed for its coffin, which I
pray to be made of sound mahogany
wood and not ornamented with brass
mils aud tin plates, telling my name,
age or death. My head will tell these
things to the inquisitive in the grave.
When this mass of corruption is so
equipped let it be borne on the shoul
ders of four steady youth to its long
home, the narrow grave, whom I wish
should be rewarded for their trouble
with decent pairs of gloves each. By
tho way, should Dr. Edwards, the

They Wouldn't Fight That Way.
A good story is told of Judge John
Rice, in connection with the late war.
He was a violent secessionist, and, in
a speech urging secession, said: "Why,
the Yankees! If they show fight
wo can whip them with popguns!"
The Yankees did show fight, and with
what result is well known.. A short
time after tho war Judge Rice was
making a speech at the same crossroads
where he had made his boasting speech
before the war. One of the audience
asked him if he was not the same Judge
Rico that spoke there in ld60. "I am,"
he replied. "Well, didn't you say that
we could whip the Yankees with pop-
Suns!" "1 did, and we could have
one it; but, 'cm, they wouldn't

Taking Time by the Forelock.
A well-dre3scd lady called at a carpet-warehouse
and asked to look at
some carpets. The goo ts were shown,
every pattern in the shop being spread
out lor examination. Alter looking
at everything about the plucc,aud driv
ing some very clo-o bargtins in the
matter of price, the lady selected a
carpet for each room iu her house,
running up a bill which filled tho
salesman heart with joy; when all
was completed, he asked where the
carpets were to be sent. The lady re

A Sea Woudcr. -A
monstrous submarine plant is
growing in the Northern Pacific
Ocean. It is one of the Melano
sperms, and known to botanists as the
Macrocystis Pyritcra, and is said to
dwarf all vegetable products yet
known by its prodigious proportions.
It grows sometimes to such a si.e as
to cover great areas of sea-bed, one
specimen having been discovered that
occupied by measurement three square
miles, while the stem was eight feet
thick. It is difficult to conceive of
such a plant, and to understand how
any adequate system . of . nourishment
can bo maintained through so extend
ed channels. The macrocistis leaves
the famous big trees of California im
measurably behind, making them
seem, indeed, like small reods. It has
an infinite variety, some specimens
being so small as to be visible only
under a powerful microscope. "The
much-talkcd-of wonders of nature are
more wonderful than has ever been
conjectured, as research and science
are daily teaching us. And still it is
fair to presume that we have not yet
crossed tho threshold of the temple of
discovery within which are hidden
marvels that the most active and exu
berant imagination is unable to con
ceive. The realm of poetry is beauti
ful and inspiring; but the world of
fact exceeds it iu everv way, illustra
ting constantly the old idea that truth
is stranger than fiction. Indeed, fic
tion seems, even when most exaggerat
ed, to be little more than tho pale
shadow of truth. . .
