In piteous tremor by her side The voice of each warm wish replied words of duty, home, and pride— Here, certain peace—there, hopes untried ; And now she mused, and now she sighed ; But scarce she strives to speak.

A LONE WOMAN. "If you please, ma'am, won't you give me a drink of milk ?" Miss Fydget had just come in from a long and bootless search through the pasture for a wandering brood of young turkeys, which had been missing since morning. She was warm and tired; one boot was burst open on the side, her sun-bonnet hung limp at^ the back of her head, her gray curls were in true artistic confusion, and a vicious blackberry briar had torn- her hands, until she looked as if she might have been in a skirmish with the Zulus. But I wouldn't have minded all that," was Miss Fydget's melancholy comment to herself, "if I only "could have found my young turkeys. They do say there is a company of tramps loafing about the country, and Jnsfc then the mild voice at an o who knows but I maybe murdered within the next five minutes ?" " Thud ! thud!" came the sound of the axe, descending with slow, regiilar strokes upon the knotty stumps of yd low pine; and Miss Fydget listanel with a sort of terrible fascination, wondering, as she did so, what sort of relation, in the matter of sound, the humito* tympanum might bear to £he pine' stumps. ; " What a fool I was!" said she to her-self. . . L And, with noiseless movement^, she went across the kitchen floor and jtoofe down a rusty musket, which had fyung suspended over the old brick c. iney ever since she was a little child, "I don't know as I could fire it said she; "but I'll try, if I signs of mischief."

Some Beautiful Features of the Hea i " ' , vens in 1881. •' '* ' #|P quantity. tore Detectives. The motions of the planets this year will be as follows : The general impression that it is practically impossible to see. the planet Mercury without a glass is incorrect and arises from "not knowing where to look." Six or seven times each year it is from eighteen to twenty-eight degrees from the sun, and, although there are seldom more than two of these occasions available, once in the spring as evening star and once in the fall as morning star, it may at these times be readily perceived by. the naked eye. A favorable opportunity will be presented on the 23d of February, and for two or three days before and after, as the planet, besides being then at an elongation, will be on the north side of the ecliptic and in perihelion, and if looked for a little to the north of the sunset point, may be easily seen, as it will not set for more than an hour and a quarter after the sun. A still better opportunity, however, will be presented on the morning of December 4th, Mercury being then in conjunction with Venus. The two planets will rise an hour and a half before the sun and be of nearly the same declination. Yenus will never appear more brilliant or be seen under more favorable circumstances than during this year. During the last three and a half months of the year it will be visible for from 3 to 4 hours after sunset, aud during the latter part of March, being near its greatest northern latitude while as its great brilliancy, may be seen in full daylight. On February 22 it will be in conjunction with Jupiter, and although not a "close" conjuction, passing more than three degrees north of the latter, the sight presented will be a most beautiful one, for as Jupiter will be but five months past the perihelion and nearly three hours cast of the sun, he will shine with a brilliancy but little inferior to that of Yenus. On March 1 Yonus will pass five and a half degrees north of Saturn, and the varying positions of the three planets will form an interesting sight for many nights. Being in retrograde motion from April 11 to May 24, Yenus will pass her inferior conjunction May 2, repass Jupiter May 11 and Saturn May 15.

During the last eight months of the year Venus will be seen as morning star, brilliant during summer and autumn, but growing faint during December. Mars, the planet, usually the most interesting of all in its motions among the fixed stars, will be scarcely noticed by the casual observer, during the greater part of the year, but the careful watcher of the sky will not fail to notice the gradual increasing in size and brilliancy of the fiery little planet. During the first halt of the year its eastward motion is so rapid that it is but two and three-quarter hours further behind the sun on July 1 than on Janu-ary 1. j " July 6 it will pass about one degree north of Saturn, and sixteen days later will be only six minutes south of Jupiter, where the two planets could scarcely be separated by the naked eye. As the conjunction takes place in the day-time, however, it will not be visible, though the early riser on the 2d will see them apparently very close to each other, if Mars is not extinguished by the superior brilliancy of Jupiter. On the 27th of December Mars will be in opposition, and, although not so brilliant as in 1877 or 1879, will blaze brightly among the smaller stars of Gemini, fifteen tp twenty degrees west of Pollux. Qor. Commerce in 1880, takingthe _ sjasd their Je. »o ,reooFd untiI lie t^irihfeaha w Cast-iron was not in commercial use bafore the year 1700, when Abraham Darby, an intelligent mechanic, who hadjbrought some Dutch workmen to establish a brass foundry at Bristol, Eng., conceived the idea that iron might be substituted for braas. This his workmen did not succeed in effecting, being probably too much prejudiced in favor of the metal with which they were best acquainted. A Welsh shepherd-boy named John Thomas had, some little time previous to this, been received by Abraham Darby into his workshop on the recommendation of a distant relative. While looking on during the experiments of the Dutch workmen, he said to Abraham Darby that he thought he saw where they had missed it. He begged to be allowed to try; so he and Abraham Darby remained alone in the workshop all night struggling with the refractory metal and imperfect molds. The hours passed on and daylight appeared, but neither would leave his task; and just -as morning dawned they succeeded in casting an iron pot complete. The boy entered into an agreement with Abraham Darby to serve him and keep the secret. He was enticed by the offer of double wages to leave his master, but he continued faithful; and from 1709 to 1828 the family of Thomas were confidential and much valued agents to the descendants of Abraham Darby. For more than one hundred years after the night in which Thomas and his master succeeded in making an iron casting in a mold of fine sand contained in frames and with air-holes the same process was practiced and kept secret at Colebrook Dale with plugged keyholes and barred doors. .-•• • Russian Exploring Expeditions. Russian geographical exploration has been carried on with energy for 200 years. Even her recent troubles have not can sed Russia to relax in the least her exertions in this field. During the past year quite a host of expeditions have been sent out* One explorer has filled up a blank in the north of the Tobolsk Government between the Obi and the Arctic Circle, discovering between the 70th and 78th degree of east longitude forests of enormous pines considerably beyond the conjectural limits of wood. Another explorer from Omsk crossei the Kirghis st^iritfflMiLvke^ the past year. 'Two d£ these pied with the exploration of Asia—that under Colonel Pre, and another under M. Potani western Mongolia, which had to back because of the relations bet\? Russia and China. Two other explorers have been examining the Uzboi bed of the Amou-Darya and the mouths of that river, in connection with the proposed improvements in the water communication with Central Asia. Another traveler has been exploring the glacier of Zarafshan, one of the greatest in Central Asia, with peaks aroun d it rising to 20,000 feet. In the Ural region traces have been found of an ancientpreliistoric city. It is a pity that the complete results of so important work are so inaccessible to Western geographers of Europe. - ^?%It$The Stewart Palace. I'm: letter ' E,' is like many men.

Dressing for the Sioux. ; A Washington correspondent says Shortly after I congratulated an army officer lately on his promotion to be Colonel in command of a regiment, his senior having been promoted still higher, he was handed a postal card'from his wife, who was in New York, making her winter purchases. "I wrote her," said he, "that she might expect to exhibit her wardrobe to the Sioux or Utes, as my promotion will send me to one of. the outposts, where the regiment to which I am to be assigned-is stationed." The wife had bravely replied : "I am not at all scared. I have been through all , that before." But it seems promotion in the army has its drawbacks. The couple to whom 1 have referred and their children have been living very comfortably in Washington, where they have a pleasant circle of acquaintances, so in spite of their courage in facing the inevitable the change will doubtless be anything else than a pleasant one to them. . ^ ;- J iiie exhibit of the commerce of the lifted States for the fiscal year ending n£e 30, 1880, is very gratifying.

All <*f j most remarkable memory ever Civilized Indians; A New York correspondent says:— This establishment is for the second time covered with the shadow of death. Five years ago Mrs. Stewart lost her husband, and now her brother is carried to the grave. Her case i? indeed one of painful bereavement. The Stewart palace has been in no small degree marked by misfortune. Its builder was ten years in the task, but though he made every effort to attain perfection such was not the result. The building, which cost a million, is tjo splendid to be really comfortable. . Stewart was obliged to occupy it before it was finished by the smallpox which broke out among his servants and compelled him to an unexpected removal. The palace was in muoh confusion for a while, and then after it was finished he had but little time to stay. He occupied the palace, however, long enough to learn the mistake made in constructing ceilings twenty feet high without the convenience of an elevator. The lofty stair, whose ascent was necessary in order to reach the sleeping rooms, became a dread, and on one occasion Mrs. Stewart fell while making such an effort, and she still suffers from the injury thus received. How, little the public can imagine that some of the grandest houses in this city are built r !*hout any idea of.personal comfort. ^ fare of the Stewart palace is frequently ^ matter of surmise. It is hoped that its present proprietor will bequeath it to public use, and if the picture gallery be included in such a bequest, the establishment will be the chief ornament of the avenue. , , | p g , A Bright Dog. ; !v^he'dEarlottesville (Va.)

HE came in yesterday, and taking a seat at the desk, asked, "Well, what shall I write about ?
