Seven Years Old.
Seven white roses on one tree.
Seven white loves of tilnmele'S leaven,
Seven white sails on one soft sea, -Seven
white swans on one lake's lee.
Seven white llower-liko stars in heaven.
All are types unmeet to be
For a birthday's crown of seven.
Not the radiance of the roses.
Not the bles-dntr of the bread.
Not the breeze thut ere day grow is
Fresh for sails and swun?, aud closes
Wings above tho sun's irreat spread.
When the stnrshine on the snow is
Sweet as sleep on sorrow shed.
Nothing sweetest, nothing best,
Holds so good and swoot a treasure
As the love wherewith once blest
Joy grows holy, grief takes rest,
- Life, half tired with hours to measure.
Fills his eyes and lips and breast
- With most light and breuth of pleasure.
As the rapture unpolluted.
As the pnssion undefiled.
By whose force all pains heart-rooted
Are transfigured end transmuted.
Recompensed and reconf iled,
Through the imperial, undisputed.
Present godhead of a child!.
Brown, bright eyes and fair, bright head.
Worth a worthier crown than this is,
Worth a worthier son; instead;
Sweet, grave, wise, round mouth, full fed
With the Joy of love, whose bliss is
Mora than mortal wine and' bread.
Lips whose words arc sweet as kisses.
Little hands so glnd of giving,
Littlo heart so iflad of love.
Little soul so glad of living.
While the s'trong, swift hours sre wea inar
Light with darkness woven above.
Time for mirth and t'mo for grieving,
Plume of ruven and plume of dove.
VII. . - i . ,
I can give you but a word, .
Warm with love therein for leaven,
But a song that falls unheard,
YTet on ears of sense unstirred,
- Yet by song so far from heaven.
Whence you came, the brightest bird.
Seven years since, of seVen times seven.
Pretty? Yes, rather pretty, but per
fectly heartless!" said Mrs, Ilolmes to
Dr. Stanley, a young- aud talented pby
iician, with whom she waa eonversinr,
at a large and brilliant entertainment.
..'Heartless! with, that sensitive
mouth, and those eyes, so deep and full
of expression?" said the physician mus
ingly. "I don't admire her style of beauty at
all. She looks like a wax doll, and her
heartlessness is proverbial. Since her
ancle left her so wealthy she has had
suitors by the score, and flirts with ev
;ry one. Why, look at her now?"
Dr. Stanley s eyes iallowetl the direc
tion in which the lady waved her fan.
and rested on the central ligure of a
Sroup round the piano. Jt . was it lady,
,-ounff and fair-i With a tall, exceedingly
raceiul figure, pure 'Greek features,
&nd large blue eyes. Her hair was
short, but the soft, full curls made a
lovely frame for the fair face. Her
dress was of dark lace; and twisted
amongst the golden curls were deep
crimson flowers, with dark green
leaves; and on the snowy throat and
arms glittered blood-red rubies. She
was conversing gayly with a knot of
gentlemen, and Dr. Stanley sauntered
over to the group.
'Miss Marston," said one gentle
man, "what has become of Harold Gra
ham, the artist?"
The tiny hands swept oyer- the Ivory
keys of the. grand piano, in the measure
of 'a brilliant waltz; and another of the
group, supposing Miss Marston did not
hear the question, said,
"Out at elbows, and can't appear." .
' "He was wretchedly pot or, there is no
doubt," said a third. -
'Perhaps he has committed suicide.
It is three weeks since he disappeared,"
"Oh, I hope not!" said Miss Marston;
"we want his tenor for our next musi
cal soiree. It would be too provoking
for him to commit suicide!"
"Mrs. Holmes was right,", thought
the doctor; "she i3 perfectly heartless.
Poor Harold!" . '
He turned from the piano, but stop
ped as a full, rich voice broke out into
tong. Eva Marston was singing Schu
bert's "Last Greeting;" and into the
mournful words she poured such wilLng
energy and deep pathos, that group af
ter group, in the large rooms, ceased
their gar conversation to listen to the
"Can she sing so without heart . or
feeling?", murmured the doctor, again
drawing nearer to the piano. ,
"Eva," said a young lady, as the last
notes of the song died, away-r-"Eva,
play a polka, "won t you?" "
A contemptuous smile quivered, for a
moment on Eva Marston's lip; then,
nodding good naturedly, she gashed off
into a lively polka, which soon melted
the group round the piano into merry,
pght-footed dancers; and . Pr Stanley
yent with the rest.
The next morning Miss Marston sat
tn her own room, writing a letter. Let
us peep over "her shoulder at one sen
tence: All hollow,--all heartless, Miriam!
You blame me for flirting; you are not
here to see how they follow me merely
for my money; not one. true heart
among them alL :There was one
A knock at the door interrupted her,
."Come in!" and a needle-woman en
tered with a basket pf work. ' '
.Good-morn fng,' said Ea, pleasant
ly, Vljow ts Terence this morning?"
'Oh! miss, it's beautiful. he is to day.
Sure, marm, I'm sorry, ye've had to
wait so long for the needle-work.'?
"Never mind that. How could "you
work with the poor fellow so ill?"
"Sure, miss, it's many a one expects
their work, sick or well; and isn't Jerry
sitting up the day playing with the toys
ye sint him and Pat, that I kept home
from school, a-minding him."
"How much, Marv?" said Eva, tak
ing out her purse.
"Oh! miss, you don't owe Marv.Dan
nis a farden. 'There's the docllier ye
left ihe money to pay and the wood ye
sint and the parties and milks-and the
money ye gave me last week; sure,
miss, it's in your debt I am for the rest
of your life."
"What I gave Terence has nothing to
do with my bill." said Eva, rapidly
counting out some money.
"Miss Eva ," said tho poor Irish
needle-woman, and then stopped.
"Sure, miss, you do so much good
with your money, I'm ashamed to tell
"Tell me what?"
"Well, miss, it's about the yonng
gentleman that's, rinted niv room. You
mind where the widdcr ilied last au
tumn. He came a we?k back, miss,
and he niver come down stairs for three
days; so this morning I wint up, and
he s sick with a fever, out of his head
entirely, miss. Ii j-ou would coma
"Wait, Mary; I'll go with you."
"He's dreadful poor, I think, miss;
for it's precious little furniture nothing
Wit a bed, and a table, and chair, and
no thrunk at all, at all, but a bit of a
Ihrowingoff her silk wrapper, Eva
put on a dark gray dress and cloak, and
added a close silk bonnet with a thick
"Come, Mary !"
And the two left the house together.
In a low, close room, on a pallet-bed,
lay Mary Dennis' lodger. The face
against the coarse ticking pillow was
such as one fancies for that of his favorite
poet. The hair was dark, waving over
abroad, white forehead; and the deep-
set eyes were hazel, large and full; and
the features delicate. Usually the face
was pale, but now it was crimson with
fever. The eves, too, licrce and wild.
But, even with all this, that face was
beautiful with an almost unearthly
beauty. Into that poor, low room, Eva,
with her sombre dress and radiant
beauty, came like a pitying angel. She
gave one glance at the invalid's face,
and then crossed the room to his side.
"Eva!" said the sick man "Eva!"
"He knew me, she murmured, draw
ing back. liut the j'oung man moaned
her name again, and then broke forth
in wild, delirious ravings.
"Mary," said Eva, "send Patrick to
me. 1 will hnd pencil and paper.
Mary left the room, and Eva turned
to the table, to lirid paper and pencil.
She wrote two hasty notes. One was to
her housekeeper, fr pillows and sheets;
the other was to Dr. Stanley, who did
not conjecture who was the friend that
sent him so much practice among, poor
patients, and saw that the young physi
cian was well paid.
Having despatched ratnek with the
notes, Eva tried to make the desolate
room more home-like. Lifting from the
table a waistcoat, something dropped
from the pocket to the floor. She pick
ed it up. It was a small miniature
case, open; and painted on the ivory,
Eva Marston's beautiful face.
A smile, gentle and pitving, came on
"lie did love me, then really love
me and would not seek me with the
herd of fortune hunters who follow me
and that is the reason whv I have miss
ed him for so long."
"Arrah, miS3, here s the-docther!
"Stop him, Mar I will go in here.
Remember, Mary, you don't know niv
name!" and Eva went into another lit
tle room, vacant, and adjoining that of
the invalid's. The dqcr atooil ajar, and
Dr. Stanley's firi exclamation after en
tering reached her.
'Harold! have I found you at last.
and in such a place?"
tva s eyes ranged over the capabili
ties of tho room in which she stood, and
she nodded, saying,
"it will do larger and better than
the other, but a poor place at best."
Ihe next day, when Dr. Stanley call
ed to see his patient, Mary, with a par
donable pride, ushered him into the
room that had been vacant before. A
soft carpet was on the floor, and a lire
in the grate. Soft muslin curtains,
snowy white, draped the window. The
bed could scarcely bo recognized, with
its pure white pillows, counterpane, and
sheeti. A little table stood beside the
bed, with the medicines, the doctor had
ordered, and a decanter of cooling
"The lady ye mind 1 told you of, that
sent ye to Terry," said Mary. "We ar
ranged . tho . room yesterday, and my
good man and I moved him to-day, so
she'll find him here when she comes.
It's sound asleep he's been for better
than three hours, sir."
Two hours later Harold was still
asleep, but then he opened his ej es.
The cold, cheerless room was changed,
as if by enchantment; and (Harold
thought he was dreaming) an angel face
bent over him, with pitying eyes, and a
smile tender as ft mother's over her
"Eva!" he whispered. "Oh, that I
could die in such a dream, and never
awako to the bitter, hopeless love! Let
me die now!"
Was it a dream, that sweet, low voice
Vllarold, you will not die j-ou will
live live for me! Your genius shall be
recognized, your pictures sought. No
more struggling for life, but only for
And the tears fell as she spoke.
Dr. Stanley, standing in the doorway,
recognized the ball-room belle, and the
object of his friend's long-silent, hope
less love. Softly ho glided down the
stairs, for he knew that a better medi
cine than he .could prescriba was within
the patient's grasp.
And the world said: "Just think of
Eva Marston,' rich, and such a belle,
marrying Harold Graham, the artist,
who was as poor as a church mouse!"
Professor Williams, of Yale College,
says the story of the beheading of Chin
Chin Chai, formerly a student in New
Haven, Conn., must be apocryphal. He
cannot trace the letter said to hv
been recei ved, and is certain no behead
ing could be done atJIong Kong, as re-
fiorted, for that i" an English province,
le knew that the Government does not
behead for Christianity, nor as a penalty
for an affection for Christian girls,
llector dishing, who was Chin's teach

and untrue. .

Special Dinpatch to the Globe-Democrat.
Winston, X. C, Feb. 22. A singular
and terrible affair occurred in Kow&n
County to day. A barn-raising was go'
ing on upon the plantation of Major
Lws, and John Held and Peter Jo
seph, two of the workmen upon the
building, g ot into a quarrel, and Held
threw an ax at Joseph, the keen blade
literally spatting his head in two,
scattering bis brains and killing him
instantly. As Held threw the ax he
lost his foothold and fell from the
building, breaking his neck. Three
men were on the ground at the time,
James Cephas, Richard Wiley and Ned
Blandford, engaged in raising a heavy
log. They became so much excited at
the tracedies they bad just witnessed
that Cephas lost his hold on the log
and caused it to fall. As it came down
it caught Wiley and crushed his abdo
men, inflicting injuries from which lie
died. - Of the five men at work on the
building only two remained alive.
The Weather of 1SS1.
From a review of the Meteorology
of Nebraska for the year 18S1, issued
by the Volunteer Weather Service of
the state, S. Ii. Thompson, Director,
we learn that there are forty observers
representing twenty counties extend
ing from Washington to Pawnee, and
from the Missouri river to Lincoln
One great peculiarity of the rainfall
of 1SS1 was its unequal distribution.
The northeastern part of the state had
the most rain, the southeastern the
least, the northeastern average being
41.68 inches; the southeastern, 2P.C2.
Along the range of the Platte as far
west as Kearney there was abundant
rain; the rainfall of September has
been exceeded but five times in thirty
years. The humidity of the first five
months and October was above the
mean, of the remaining months below.
More snow fell duriug the first three
months than during any correspond
ing period since 1837. January and
February were the coldest since 1875.
The total number of miles traveled
by the wind during the year was 84.-
.971 which is 5,733 miles more than the
average of the last eight years, but C,
870 less' than in 18S0. TLe most des
tructive storm of the season occurred
at Stanton and other points in the vi
cinity the blind asylum and other
buildings were injured at Neb. City,
and other points sustained much in
jury, ibis storm extended irom
Minnesota to New Mexico, including
Iowa, Missouri and the eastern part of
Kansas and Nebraska.
The year 1881 was characterized
throughout the whole United States
by extreme, variations of heat and
cold, by droughts and floods that were
very damaging to agricultural interest.
Nebraska suffered, probably, from
these less than most other states.

As Mad as a Hatter.
The mpt striking (in two senses)
thing about the hatter's art. in the old
time when felt hats were made by hand,
was the heating up of the felt. Dipping
the mass of wool and hair, from which
his fabric was to be for.ned, frequently
into hot water the hatter wa3 then wont
to fly at it, as if in passion, and give it
a violent beating with two sticks, one
held in each hand, till it was matted to
gether into felt, which, in time after
numerous combings and dressings and
shearings, became the stjlish beaver
worn by the men of fifty years ago. The
hatter seemed to be very mail at this ob
ject of his labor, and "mad as a hatter"
needed no explanation in those days.

How some People Talk.
Most people talk nonsense when they
are idle. The human brain is naturally
vivacious and elastic, hence that pro
nounced mental versatility which is al
ways to be found in men of sen sc. Sensi
ble people talk about the weather when
there is no sense in talking about it, just
as naturally as they do anything that
suggests itself to them when they are
unengaged. For instance we heard a
gentleman say recently: "We need snow
badly." Uf course, he did not know
why we needed snow; but such was the
circumstanses under which this pro
found declaration was delivered that tho
words seemed Ut come naturally, and
with an honestness which proved that
their conception and pronunciation was
irresistable to the man. This is a world
of lips and downs, turbulences and
mutabilities; and one of the oldest yet
most reasonable peculiarities of its in

I was taken with a violent bleed
ing of the lungs followed by a se

time that I could not leave my bed.
In the snmme;- of 1877 I was admitted
to the Cm v I7os,"tal. While there the
doctors Sri'd I h;td a hole in my left
lung as b' r as ;i half dollar. I expend
ed over a :nnidred dollars in doctors
and medicines. I gave up hope, but a
friend told me of DR. HALL'S BAL

bottle to satisfy him, when to my. sur
prise and gratification, 1 commenced
