When the day in beauty Jiu tied. A curtain N dropped on the hillIde. When the mists urcririlting their blue; And swallows have s waved in the noon tide Where the light sifts dreamily through. The orioles flash thro' the azure That veiN the horizon around; And larks are piping a measure, Only branches shall echo the sound. here brown leaves eddying, quiuer, The trees their helpless arms hold; Gray waves with blades all a-shiver Where October is weaving its gold. When the blue.j.iys meet in the willows We hear their call with a sigh; They fear the down-coming billows That press from a cold northern sky. We mourn for the days that are going Abroad iu the sad Autumn wind; For landscapes that russet are growing And sorrow that lingers behind. Gray shadows are drawing around us. And the sweetness of Summer has flown; When the bleakness ot Winter has found us We remember the joys that are gone. l'atron, Neb. A IIKAVE GISCU. Firsl, I must tell you who I nin and how I came (o be in the Buys villc Hank iu the "wee sum' hours" one dreary December night some three ycnis ago. My name, then, is Olive Hudson, and I was n years old on the same December niglit, mid so very small that Mrs. Knight's Dolly, who was not 13, was hall a head taller than mysclt. We were rich folks once, but falli cr died and left us very poor. Mother struggled along in a weary land-to-haiid light with poverty till I was 1G, and died. Site had rented (wo rooms of Mrs. Knight, u widow also with two stalwart sons, an aged father, and two daughters. After mother died I was adopted by the Knights, and although I wa earn ing a support as inusie teacher iu Uaysville Academy, I was like one of the family when I was in my good landlady's homo. """ I hey were all in good positions, although by no means an aristocratic lamiiy. .lolin. the eldest son, was in New York, in a wbolecalo sugar house; Tom was the night watch man of the Uaysville bank building, and grandpa wo all called him graodp'!. was telegraph operator of the town. Mary was a milliner, and .Dolly still at school. Uaysviile bank building was ii large granite structure, containing the. post-oliice and the bank on the first floor, and the telegraph and a number of private offices on the second floor, and other private offi ces on the. third floor. In the base ment were the post-office rooms lor sorting the mail, and also the large bank vaults. I knew the building well, for I was fond of telegraphing and epent half my leisure lime perched up be side grandpa in his office sending and receiving messages, while he slept peacefully or read the news papers. And that was the begin ning of my amusement at Dryden, next station. liic operator at lJrydcn was a wit, and flashed nonsense to our office when business was dull. It feil flat when grandpa was in the office. He cal ed himself Lynn, and I for nonsense signed mjself Kle phat, laughing as I did so at the re flection of my tiny figure in the office mirror. Ueyond Dryden, and only five miles from Uaysville, was C- , a large commercial town, the near est railway station, and where the office was open for the accommoda tion of travelers. As I have said, Tom Knight was the night watchman of Uaysville Uank building. The bank closed at 3, and by G every office was desert ed for the night. At 7 Tom was on duty, and grandpa, who was restless at night, was in the habit of taking down some coflec and luncheon, as the building was only a stone's throw from our house. On the December night already mentioned it nad stormed heavily all day, and I had taken a new class at the Academy, coming home later in the day than usual. Everybody else bad gone to bed, and I stood lingering over the kitchen fire with Mrs. Knight. The clock struck twelve, and Mrs. Knight said: "Do call grandpa, Olive; he's asleep on the sofa in the sitting room. I'll have Tom's basket ready by the time grandpa has his hat and coat on." "Let him sleep," I said. "I'll run over with the basket. It's not a step." "Well, if you will, though I'm afraid Tom will scold at my letting you go. Go to the basement door. He leaves that open for grandpa." I hurried across the space between the building and the houe, and stole softly in at the rear basement door; in pursuance oF my plan to drop my basket and run. In my rubber shoes my steps were noiseless, and I had scarcely passed the threshold when I stood rooted to the floor in terrified amazement. Somebody was talking. AVhile I listened some one said : "There's a confounded draft here. Did you shut the door, Smith?" "Yes; but the wind may have blown it open." I had just time to dart under the stair-case and crouch down, when the door of the vault opened and a man came out. He crossed the entry, drew the two heavy, noisy bolts, fastened the door by which I had entered, and returned without closing the vault door. I could look in bv the dim light and see two men working at the S'lfc. locks by the stream of light thrown from a dark lantern. There was the outline of a man bound and gagged upon the floor, but I could only conjecture was Tom. 1 There I was nicely caged, for it 'would bp impossible fur me to draw those heavy bolts without attracting notice, ivnd the bank was being robbed, that was evident. How could I prevent it? Suddenly I re membered the telegraph office on the second floor. If I could sum mon help from C ! It wa9 'iuily five miles, and there was a long job for the burglars before I hey could open the safe. Gould I creep around the stair case? If one of those busy men turned his head I was lost. I softly crept out on all fours, slowly, watch ful, and gained the stairs. Up I darted, blessing my india-rubber shoes, till I gained the door of the telegraph office. All dark there and I dared not strike a match. I listened, and then groped my way to the well-known desk, and sent this message: "Burglars in the BaysvilU Bank vault! Watchman gaggi d and bound. Can von send hep?'' Again the agony of suspense iu listening, but at last the sound reached me : "Will send help imidediately !" I crept to the head of the stair case, afraid the clear ring of the in strument had been heard in the vault. The window of the telegraph olliee faced tin; street, so I returned, bolted myself in safety, and sat down to watch. 1 was utiiiib with the cold, when I heard afar of' the sound of horses leet. The building made a corner of two streets, and I saw eight mount ed men dash up the road, separate and while four dismounted in front, four went to the rear. The burglars were unprepared for this flank movement, for whiic the police in trout were thundering at the main entrance, the robbers rushed lo the rear basement door right into the arms of the police stationed there. I could hear the hubbub, pistol shots fired, the scuflle of feel, cries, oaths, and geriiral confusion, and I slipped down sunt-, out ot the now deserted main entrance, and home. Everybody was abed, and I went to in v own loom, had a good cr ing spell, and comforted my half frozen body iu blankets, where I soon tell asleep. All this happened on Friday night and I had no teaching to do until Monday, so I slept late; but coming down I found all the family prepar ed lo make a heroine of me. I tried to make the Knights prom ise not lo tell my adventure, but could not. Uefore night all Uays ville knew how Olive Hudson had caught the burglars. I was in the office with grandpa when over the wire came this message. "What does Olive Hudson look like? Everybody in Dryden is talk ing of her gnat exploit." I flashed back : "What do you suppose such a woman would look like? ohc is nearly six feel, broad-shouldered and loud voiced a perfect elephant." "Was it really yourself, elephant ?" "Dear Lvon, it really wis." "Do you know I want to see you ? I nin going to New York to-day, but I'll be back next spring. If he came to Uaysville he did not see mo; I ran away in a fit of shy ness. My mother's brother, who had been seventeen years nearly all his liletime in Cuba, came home toXew York, found mo out, and took me into a life of case and luxury. One day Uncle George brought home a stranger whom' he intro duced as "The son of an old friend, Olive dear- -Mr. Uoberls." I made myself agreeable, as iu duly bound, to Mr. Iioberts, a man of 30, or thereabouts, with a face that was downright ugly, but pleas ant from the expression of frank and good humor and intelligence upon it. We talked of everything, and 1 was surprised at the congeni ality of tastes we soon discovered. In an animated di-cussiou of hero ines Mr. Uoberts turning to Uncle George, said : "You were kindly inquiring this morning about mv fortune since father did. but I did not tell you of one little episode. But I wasfortu- nate enough to obtain my present lucrative situation I was for a time telegraph operator in a small place called Dryden, and then I heard of a real heroine of whom the world will probably never hear." I knew wiiat was coming, hut I kept my face composed to listen. When the story was finished, giving Uncle George a sly pinch to keep him quiet, I said: "What kind of a looking person was this wouderful heroine?" "I never saw her; for, although Uiysville was the next village to Dryden, I never went there. Hut she was described to me as tall, strong, and quite masculine." "In short, my dear Lion," I said, gravefv, "she was a perfect ele phant." Such a stare as greited me lam certain never came on Leo Koberts face before or after that hour. His eyes dilated till I thought they would pop out of his dear, ugly face, and his mouth opened in utter amazement "Uncle George," I said, "will you please introduce me properly to Mr. Uoberts? I believe he thinks your niece must share your name." Alter that we could not certainly be strangers, and Mr. Roberts came "many a time and oft," to dine with Uncle George. One day there was a wedding, where the bride was very small, buried iu lace and orange blossoms, and the bridegroom was ugly and good-natured ; but it was a true love-match, a most fit ending for the flirtation commenced over the wire. the: two robs. Ilohrrt Iag-tntoU on Robert Ham Infffrsoll'H Notion of Poet Some Uulqar Vltns. Chickering hiII was crowded last evening with an audience of well dressed people who had assembled to hear Col. Robert G. Ingersoll lecture upon "itobert Burns." I'tinc lually at 8 o'clock Col. Ingersoll bustled through the Mftlc door at the roar of the plnttonmtnd up to the foot-lights, and with a familiar sort ot nod to the audience began his discourse, lie began with a definition of poetry iu the abstract, remarking that it was much like religion in one way, which' was that few people cared lo express distinct opinions with regard to it. Iu his opinion poetry must, of all things, be natural nothing unnatural could be poetic. Then he gave his opin ion of the poets. "Dante," he said, "was a wonderful poet. I was told so. I read bis works. He was ex ceedingly sublime; but 1 could find nothing iu them but those vicious twins, solemnity and stupidity, born of superstition, struggling for the uiAStery. So I also heard a good deal of the sonnets of Petrarch. They are polished and grammatical, but I found they were written about another man's wife, who had twelve or ihirteen healthy children ; that he was all a pretense, in fact, and that not a Hue was torn bleed ing from his heart. Milton is a sublime writer, a magnificent wri ter! I was told so: I always be- lieved it. I have read "Paradise Lost" once. "Flying with indefa tigable wings over the vast abrupt" is much too sublime for me. I ab ruptly admit that I do not under stand it. Milton organized Jie UliiUJV-UlJieavi:ii-imt-opauleLi.oii t.hc shoulders .qftiml.. That may be poetry, hut it does not strike me as such." Mr. Ingersoll dwelt for some time in the poetry of Milton, and was very felicitous on his de scription ol the first courtship, wncre imam is made to talk in a philosophical style about the laws of the universe. J'ollok, loo, he had lead. He was another of the same sort. He described damned souls impiisoued iu the coils of worms and snakes. "As a matter of fact," .-aid the lecturer, pausing in his rapid walk round the platform, "no Calvanist ever wrote a poem, and never will. C:tl vanjsiii is a world Willi lc poetry IeliMir.iu(lbel I e it in.: lie had read these sublime gentlemen, and must admit they were not poets. His conception of a poet was somebody who told exactly what he thought and fell; who "gave a real transcript of bis heart. The old writers went to the cemeteries ot literature andr,uad the past, and then fancied they were equipped to write about the jots and grids of actual life. They were literary me chanics, word carpenters, not poets. "Shakespeare," he said, "was the first to breakdown the classic mud dle and write something natural." So poem was a poem without di gression, without episode. There could not possibly bo a long poem. "You might as well talk of n kiss in three volumes as a poem in three volumes."

The latter, he said, would complain that the nightingale did not sing by note, and would have the clouds square. "What we want is the natural," he repeated, and I am going to talk to you about one natural poet, and, in my judgment, the second poet the world has thus far produced."

Burns' poetry was natural and hoiin est and true. He touched the chrys alis of common life, and filled the air with colored wings. He did many things that would have been better left undone: but he was no sneak; he did nothing behind the door. He was not a candidate on the prohibition ticket and drunk on the day of election. That he did get drunk once iu a way there was no doubt, and he (Mr. Ingersoll) liked him the better for it; men were natural when they were drunk. But that Burns wa's besot ted he denied.

JYec York Times. The Teacher. The great secret of success in teaching, lies iu showing how much there is of real interest and beauty that can be. easily and interestingly barnetli It is absurd lo think that success depends upon impressing pupils with the idea that the teach er is the prodigy of learning. Let his own soul be iu the work. Let him appear before his school as an enthusiastic investigator and learn er, advanced further than they, always ready and anxious lo help them iu finding the why to higher elevations, and he will succeed. Good temper, punctuality and meth od, arc indications of a good teach er; but their qualifies, with many others equally excellent, may be lound where, there is no teaching capacity. . A still and oiderly school may be a very poor one, while ex cellent results may sometimes come from a noisy and confused one. "We admit that noise and confusion are not desirable, but method and quiet are not certain evidences of schol arship. There is something of vastly more importance than rules and programme?. It is enthusiasm. Every truly successful teacher ap pears as a lcai iter with them. He is just as eager, patieutaiid thorough as he wants they should be. He is iu close and real sympathy with his pupils. He steps with them, thinks, acts and investigates as they do. For this reason many great teachers have possessed a child-like spirit, and iu this is found the secret of their great success. It is not in a system, nor iu a text hook, hut be cause the heart and intellect of the teacher comes down to a child's way ot acquiring truth. This is something more than adoption, it is for the time becoming like those we teach, and seeing the world as they see it. We have seen pupils after long and patient study, run to the teacher, with countenance beaming with the joy of success, to tell the news of victory, only to be met by his cold and uninteresting gaze. To them it. was a moment of intense interest. They had the same en thusiasm that Columbus, Newton and Kepler felt when they first proved their theories tine. The teachers said nothing and yet spoke volumes. We have seen other teachers look with utmost care over the whole work, even though cverv line and figure were as familiar as the alphabet, and evince great joy iu finding the whole correct. The. warm, genial summer sun is infinitely more brilliant than the cold sparkle of the iceberg. Some teachers arc sunny, genial and in spiring. Others are cold, brilliant and learned. They never laugh nor love, don't enjoy a joke, nor do they want Jo be loved. For them there is no conquest iu acquisition. They have great heads hut cold hearts. They know even thing, but love nothing. Truly great men have hearts larger than their brain, and a really successful teacher knows much but he loves more. Thc WoiMlcrlu! Icep. The great ocean is the extreme type of solitude. One who has never voyaged evpects lo find it somewhat thickly populated. He thinks of the vast travel and traffic that goes over Ihe waleis, and he is ready to imagine that Ihe great deep is alive with this hurrying to and fro of nations. He reads of lands whose commerce whitens every sea, and he is ready to think that the ocean itself is as full of sails as the harbor of some mighty metropolis. But he finds his mistake. As he leavisthc laud, the ship3 begin to disappear; as he goes on his way they soon all vanish, and there is nothing about him but the blue sea and ihe bended sky. Sometimes he may meet or overtake a solitary ship through the day; but then, again, there will bo unny days when not a single sail will be seen.

Henry Carey, cousin to Queen Elizabeth, after having enjoyed her Majesty's favor lor several years, lost it iu the following manner: As he was walking one day full of thought in the garden of the palace, under the Queen's window, she per ceived him, and said to him in a jocular manner: "What does a man think of when he is thinking of nothing ?" "Upon a woman's promise," re plied Carey. "Well done, cousin," answenl Elizabeth. She retired, but did no forget Carey's answer. Some time ulter he solicited the honor of a peerage, anp reminded the Queen that she had promised it to him. "True," said she, "but that was a woman's promise." papkr :i o:irv.
