For President of tie United States,
GEN. JAMES A. GARFIELD.
BT ARTHUR 0BHACQHNK8ST.
One of the workers of the world
Living toiled and toiling died;
But ethers worked and the world went oa
And was not changed when he was gone,
A strong arm stricken, a wild sail furled;
And only a few me a sighed.
One of the heroes of the world
Fought to conquer, then fought to fall.
And fell down slain in his blood-stainod mail(
And over his form they slept ;
His cause was lost and his banner furled ;
And only a woman wept.
One of the singers among mankind
Sang healing songs from au o'erwrought
Bnt ere men listened the grass and wind
Were wasting the rest nnsung like a ware;
And now of his fame that will ne'er depart
He has never heard in his grave.
One of the women who only love
Loved and grieved and faded away
Ah met are these gone to the God above,
What more of each can I say?
They are human flowers that flower and fall.
This is the song and the end ef the"" alL
TRAPPED BY AN HEIItESS.
A cosier place than the big sitting
room nt Ilillcrest would liaro been
hard to fin. I, if 0110 had travelled from
Land's End to John O'Groats; and
this eventful evening, when the des
tinies ef two worthy people wero
about taking definite form two peo
ple who had never seen each other,
and who had heard of each other so
often that they were both curiously
eager to meet on this important even
ing the sitting-room at Ilillcrest had
naver looked pleasantcr or cosier.
A huge fire of logs glowed like mol
ten carbuncles in the open llrc-place;
on fhe table in the centre of tho lloor
!i jsc cover matched the glowing
crimson of the carpet, with a silver
stand that held a dozen snowy wax
tapers, whose beaming light contrast
ed exquisitely whh tho ruddy glow
of the fire.
Beside the tabic, in a big cushioned
chair, with his feet thrust toward tho
genial warmth of the hearth, his gray
uressing-gown sitting comfortably on
his portly form, his golden-rimmed
glasses on his nose, sat the owner and
master of Ilillcrest, Mr. Abiah Cress
ingt.011, rich, good-natured, and fond
ol his own way. Opposite him was
the mistress of the placc,littie, shrewd
faced, sharp -nosed, merry Aunt Cora,
Lis sister, who, since her widowhood,
had come to Ilillcrest to make her
bachelor brother's homo as pleasant
ag she could.
That she had succeeded was very
evident by the way now in which he
looked up from a letter hej had. been
reading the conhMeniial, kindly way
in which he did it.
"Walter writes a curious letter in
response to my invitation 10 come and
spend a few weeks at Ilillcrest as soon
as ho gets over his fatigue from his
ocean voyago home, after his five
cars' tour abroad. I'll read it to
lie leaned near the softly glowing
light, ami began the short, concise
reply that Walter Austin had written
troin hi chamber in tho Temple :
"You are very kind, indeed, Uncle
Abiah, to ask me down to Ilillcrest
lor as long us 1 wish to stay, and 1 can
as? urc you that 1 have been so long a
wanderer that the idea of a home is
pleasant to me, But when I take into
consideration the peculiar importance
yuu propose attaching to my viit, I
am unwilling to accept this invit .tioii.
To me, the idea othaving my fancies
end inclinations put into harness, and
to feel that 1 am on continual duty to
win my way into tho good graces of
my second cousin, Mabel, whom you
are good enough to wish mo to mar
ry" Mrs. Cora interrupted sharply,
"Abiah, you never surely went and
told our grandmother that you had in
view his marriage with Mabel?"
ller tone was energetic, almost ap
prehensive. "Wiry not? I certainly did. I told
him in my letter that it "was a chance
for him he'd never get again, and that
lie needn't feel under such terrible ob
ligations to take a fancy to Phil's lit
tle Mabel, but to come down and bo
cousinly, an 1 if anything should hap
pen, it'd be ri.uht all around."
Mrs. Cora knitted vigorously, her
lavender cap-ribbons quivering in the
melloAV taper gtow.
"All I have to say is, you'r a fool,
Abiah I Walter is right. A young
man doesn't like to have his fancies
under l-eiu and whip, and the very
fact that we want him to marry will
make him indisposed to do it. You've
made a great mistake in the begiu
nin." Mr. Cressington looked aghast at
his sister's determined face.
"Why, I really didn't suppose "
'Of course you didn't. It's only
natural stupidity, you dear old fellow!
Men are all alike. Don't I know them
like a book? And you've ruined your
hopes for Mabel aud Walter at the
Mr, Crcssingtou started disconifit
dly. I am sure 1 meant it all right
enough, Cora. 1 certainly wanted
V.'alur to know what little darling
it Mabel is and what a nice little
vife she would make for any man."
"Very commendable, indeed; only,
if you had consulted me upon the let
ter you sent, 1 should have edviecd
you'tosay nothing about Mabel, or
her charms or her expectations. I
should have simply asked him to

conic and see us, and have left the rest
to Mabel's blue eyes, You see,
His lips compressed slowly.
"I think I see. And my hopes in
that direction arc all ruined I"
The silver needles clicked rapidly,
and tho 6iiow-whiteyarn came reeling
merrily off the ball under her arm.
"Not at all. Leave that to me, and
I'll sec what can be done. Trust a
woman's wit to jret even a blundering
old fellow like" yourself out of
She smiled and nodded, and looked
altogether 60 mischievous that Mr.
Cressington became quite excited over
her little mystery.
"Do explain, Cora."
And when sho explained he leaned
back in his chair, with an expression
of positive awe and admiration on his
"AVhata woman you are, Coral I
declare, it beats anything 1 ever heard
in the whole course of my lite I"
After dusk, a glorious winter day,
with here and there a star twinkling
in the pale gray sky, and the light3
ami li res in the Ilillcrest sitting-room
making an eloquent welcome to Wal
ter Austin, as he stood in the midst of
the home circle, tall, gentlemanly,
handsome and self-possessed.
Old Mr. Cressington was in tho
richest humor as he led forward two
"Come, don't be shy, now. Walter
this is your cousin, Mabel Cressington,
and this is her good friend and insep
arable companion, Irene Vance, come
to help entertain you. My nephew,
Mr. Walter Austin, girls. And this
is Aunt Cora you remember her well
And so the presentation was mer
rily gotten over; and Walter found
himself in the most pleasant family
he had ever known.
They were remarkably pretty girls,
with blue eyes although Miss
Vance's were decidedly the deeper
blue and more bewitching and love
ly, yellow gold hair. Walter found
himself admiring the style of Miss
Vance's coiffure before he had known
her an hour; and when he went up to
his room that nizut he tclt as it uc
tween the two, roguish Mabel and
sweet, liltle Irene, he never would
come out heart-whole.
"For Mabel is a good little darling,"
thought he, "and 1 will take Oreat
uuclc Abiah'a advice and fall in lov
with her, and thoreby secure a gener
ous share of the Cressington estates.
Egad! that's a happy thought I"
"But the handsome young gentleman
went to sleep and dreamed, instead of
Mabel's laughing eyes, of Irene's gen
tle tender ones; and awoke some

And the after days were not much
better. Despite tho golden value of
Mabel, there was something about
Irene Vance that made this headstrong
lellow very foolishly indifferent to" the
advice he had sworn to follow.
"Iiecatisc, by Jove! a fellow would
have to be made out of granite to re
sist the sweet, shy ways of such a
little darling as Irene 1 And I'll mar
ry her if she'll have ine, and the mon
ey and the property may go to the
dogs ! I've a head and a pair of hands,
and blue-eyed Irene shall not suffer I"
It was not an hour later that he met
her in the hall, carrying great boughs
of holly, with which to festoon, down
tho walnut staircase.
-Give me your burden, Irene," said
he. "Why aid you not tell me you
were going to gather it, and let mo go
with you t It is altogether too heavy
a burden for your arms to bear."
lie managed to get the lovely sprays
from her arms, but it required au im
mense amount of tardy effort on his
part, and shy, sncet blushing on hers.
"Answer me, Irene. Why didn't
you let me go with you? Wouldn't
you have liked it?"
lie dennnded her answer in tho
most captivating, lordly way, and she
dropped her eves in groat confusion.
"Then why were you so cruel to
"I am not cruel to anybody. Indeed
1 must go now."
Walter placed himself squarely in
the way, and was looking down at
her rosy-tinted face.
"No, vou can't go yet. Irene, you
are cruel, or you would never deprive
me of the opportunity to enjoy tho
blessedness ot your society."
His voice lowered tenderly, and he
dropped his hand nearer her curls.
"You know 1 think it cruel in you
to be so distant and reserved don't

drooiinglike a lily, her cheeks hang
iug out the signals of distress and
"Oh, please don't talk so to me. In

for the holly, and she they won't
like it if"
But she was a prisoner in hi3 tight
"If they find you and me talking so
conli ieutly together?"
"No ! 1 menu if I don't take tho

Walter put his arms aroucd her
waist before she kuew what he was
-Irene, look up. You shall not go
ouiii you let me see iii -our eyes if
you love me as well as I love you 1
Irene, icy dear little girl, I do love
you very dearly I"
She was silent for one second, aud
he saw the quiver ou her red lips.
Then she raised her head slowly, 6hy-
"You lovome? Oh, Walter, what
will they all say? Don't you know
that it is Mabel that you should say
that to? lam uobody, Walter, and
Mabel is au heiress."
Walter had both arms around her
by this time, and was looking ardent
ly in her glowing face.
"1 know Mabel is an heiress, and a
nice little girl ; and I also know you
are a darling my darling and the
only girl 1 ever asked to be my wife,
or ever shall ask. Say yes, pet."
His tone was low and tender, but
"And you can deliberately glvo up
so much for only just me?"
Her wondrous eyes met his bravely
now, and thrilled him with tho lov
light in them.
"Only just you, my own darling!
Why you are all the world to me!
Come, we will go tell Uncle Abiah at
once. Just one kiss first you must."
And lie had more than one or two,
bci'oro he led her, blushimr, with tears
trembling on her lashes, likcdiainonds

who sat in his library with Mrs. Co
ra, industriously looking over a re
ceipt book. They looked up in sur-
!me as Walter marched in, Irene on
lis arm, a picture of confusion.
"If you please, Uncle Abiah, I
want your blessing and cordial con
sent to receive this little girl for your
niece. I love her and she loves me."
Uncle Abiah looked over his glasses
at Mrs. Cora.
"Well, sister, what nhall we say to
this youth's demand?"
A broad 6mile of perfect delight
Was on her merry face.
"Say? AVhy tell them j'cs, and

Walter looked astonished, and felt
Irene's hand tremble on his arm.
"What is it, dear?"
She smiled through her tears as she
looked up into his inquiring eyes.
"Oh, Waiter, I am afraid you will
be angry. I am Mabel after all, and
"And you have made love to your
cousin, the heiress, in spite of your

"Don't scold, Walter!" Mabel plead
ed, in a low voice, with her eyes look
ing into his.
"As if I could scold you my love I
Since I have you what need I care?"
And Mrs. Cora turned over tho
leaves of the receipt book until sho
came to the "wedding cake," and avers
that she made the match herself.
liome, Sweet Home.
When the poor wandering minstrel
that wrote "Home, sweet home" ram
bled about the streets of London,
without a roof to cover him, and
heard the sad voices of wretched ballad-singers
chanting "Home, sweet
homo !" how his desolation must havo
crushed his mind. The world was be
fore him, but no home for him that
sang of a happy home. Verily, the
tender sensibilities of fine minds are
often tried with a vengeance. He
who felt most keenly the charms of
home and domestic bliss could never
call them his own.
"Home, sweet home!" How little
do we think of home when intoxicated
with the gaieties of fashionable life ;
yet homo is the haven of rest, whero
the weary 6pirit seeks repose, where
the affections bloom and blossom. If
assailed with bodily or mental trouble
where can wc turn tor pure sympathy
but at home. You may have wealth,
and wealth without sympathy, but
not without admiration and envy.
Admiration will not make us happy
without love and sympathy; and
where will these be found in all their
depth and purity, but at home. Homo
is the union ot all these social ties
that bind brothers aud sisters, parents
and children, in one holy bond a
holy bond of mutual love and broth
erhood. A man of a loving heart, with good
moral resolution, and the genius of
moral discipline, can mako home a
paradise indeed. Home Is woman's
province ; the sphere of her love aud
duty; it is her kingdom; and how
grandly does a wise woman rule her
empire. Her words are words of
peace aud love. She rules her house
hold with a moral influence that de
lights the heart of her husband.
Young men are too apt to be taken
with, the allurements of society ; still
these charms possess nothing so en
dearing as the sweets of domestio af
fection. These expand the heart with
the trttest sensations. What artificial
enjoyments can compare to the greet
ing smile of a fond wifo or the prat
tling of pretty babes? There is 110
charm of society so dear as that.

A Home for Aged (jlcrgrymcn.
Troy (N. T.) Times.
Very few Trojans are aware of what
lias been done during the last four
years at East Line. Sir acreo of wild
woodland have been purcliascd, a neat
little church erected, r.ud a spacious
and beautiful house completed as a
home for aged ministers. A garden
well-stocked with vegetable? has been
started, shade trees planted, and tho
whole face of the scene metamorphos
ed. Features of the exercises were
not only the fourth ancircrsary of
this work, but especially tho recogni
tion of the completion cf the Home
for Aged Clergymen. It is intended
as a quiet country residence for a few
aged ministers who have passed the
limit cf active work by reason of
years and infirmities. The spacious
rooms are neatly fnuheJ, showing the
natural grain of the wood. On one
side of the central hMI is a large room
for social purposes that may be called
a reading-room. On the other sido
are a parlor and dining-room, and back
of thee a large kitchen and inclosed
wood-shed. On the second floor are
six sleeping apartments and a spacious
central hall. The building is tho de
sign of Col. Gregg, of Granville. Ono
pretty feature of tho parlor and read-ing-rooir
is tho Queen Anno lire
places. One of these is the gift of Mrs.
Erastus Corning and Mrs. J. V. L.
J'ruyu, of Albany, the other of Miss
Tweedle, of the same city. Tho stair
case was given by MLs Electa Mann,
of Balis ton. talker prominent mru
of the building trcro gifts of lion.
James M. Maun, of Saratoga, and oth
ers. By the tide of the house is a well
of clear, cold water. Tho first use the
water was put to was to bautizo tho
child of the man who duf the well.
Building materials at low figures (at
the time of its erection) aud economy
in management have brought the cost
of tho house -within $ 3,000.
