The fault of the age is a mad endeavor To leap' to heights • that were made to climb, By a burst of strength or a thought that is clever . ' We plan to outwit and forestall Time. We wait for the thing worth noon at the day's dim scorn to having; We want high dawn; We find no pleasure in toiling ftnd saving As our forefathers did in the good times gone. We forfce our roses before their season To bloom and blossom that we may wear; And then we wonder and ask the reason Why perfect buds are so few and rare. We crave the gain, but despise the getting; We want wealth, not as reward, but dower; And the strength that is wasted in useless fretting Would fell a forest or build a tower. To covet the prize, yet to shrink from the winning; . To thirst for glory, yet fear the fight— Why, what can it lead to at last but sinning, To mental languor and moral blight? Better the old slow way of thriving And counting small gains when the year is done, Than*to use our forces all in contriving To grasp for pleasures we have not won ftorg, OHLY A FLIRTATION. "Well, Earle, it seems that we are to lose you. You have snapped at the bait held so alluringly before you, and have allowed yourself to be caught by a stray curl, a winsome smile, and a pair, of dark eyes turned bewitchingly upon you. The tempter hps been caught, and Florence Dinsmore is triumphant. I congratulate you." The handsome lips of Cecil Hamilton curled sarcastically as he spoke thus to his friend, Earle Cathcart. The two young men were sitting on the piazza of a Beach Cliff hotel, enjoying an after-dinner smoke, as we introduce them to the reader. "You do her injustice, Cecil," answered his companion, as hfc took his cigar from his mouth, while a long wreath of smoke fiftated upward in the warm sunshine. "Florence Dinsmore is pure and true, a perfect lady. She has never tried to win me by any art of hers. There is no bait or trap in the question. And as for me, I am proud to confess that it is the love of my life." I i.-- chanced to stumble in one of his ruifi sojourns' among the green hills of Ve: mont. Poor, beautiful, and romanti her fresh, young heart was. easily won the careless, polished young man of t] world. It was "only a flirtation" to Cathcart, but to the unsophisticated the moonlight walks, the low whisperin and the tender glances were so more than amusement for an idle But it had passed. .What she had 0: deemed sacred memories to be cherishl while life endured, and carried even yond the grave, had turned to bit ashes and consuming hate. She was haughty, imperious woman now; a bel in social circles, and ready to retu: scorn with scorn with the betrayer of h affections. Her appearance at Cliff Beach hotel w particularly distasteful to Earle Cathcari To do him justice, his whole heart's was given to Miss Dinsmore, and to b hold this perpetual reminder of his -dayt of folly was unpleasant and irritating!* Besides, in spite of all his remonstrances^: saying that Miss Grahame left him. He broke the seal and read: Cathcart, I hate you with the of a scorned woman. For five long I have had but one thought—re- 1 Now I strike the blow. You love Dinsmore.

I hardly think it will last," and the speaker tilted back his chair, and resumed his half-burned cigar. A flush mantled the cheek of Earle Cathcart. "You are an incorrigible cynic, Cecil," he said, "and it will take one of the fair sex to convert you. The time may come when you will regard matrimony in a different light from that you now do." "Whew! A Daniel come to judgment. But don't flatter yourself, old boy. I fancy I have seen enough of the tender passion not to be taken in by afiy of the fair creatures at this late hour. By-the-by, Earle, have you seen the last arrival?" "No; whonis it? Nobody that I know, of course." "I am not so sure of that," replied Cecil. "If I am not mistaken she is an old friend of yonrs. I recollect \vell the glowing letters you wrote me at the time. You were staying in some out-of-the-way place, and this charming Diana crossed your path. Whether you left her as you found her is not to my knowledge." "Can't you let the past be by-gones, Cecil?" cried Earle,- with a darkening brow.' "Stop your trifling now, and tell me who it is." "Of course, you can have no idea, there are so many of them in that forbidden past. And you, could not have seen her arrive, for you were playing the sweet to that fiancee of yours. She is a stunner, I tell you; one of your tall, stately creatures. Florence Dinsmore is a wax-doll compared with her. She must have changed greatly since you knew her. Why, I should as soon think of playing with a panther, as mailing love to such a woman." .. ... - "Well?" - "Oh, you are waiting for her name! Well, it is Ardelle Grahame."/ Earle Cathcart's dark face paled suddenly, ~&nd there was a perceptible quiver in his voice as he exclaimed: "Ardelle Grahame! • What is she here for? Are you sure it is her?" "Quite sure; I read the.^alae"i^tiie hotel register. The familiarity of the name struck me, a"nd straightway I recollected your letter. Hist! there she goes now, and Miss Dinsmore is with her. Do you not recognize her?" "By jove! Yes," responded Earle, as he gazed down upon the croquet ground, where a party of players " were strolling. "She has changed, as you say; but I should know her anywhere. I must warn Florence against her. I shall not like to have them intimate. It seems like a ghost of the past to meet her here.''f - • - "You speak as if you hated her." "I do not like her. Five years is not so short a period but that a revulsion oflfeel-ing may occur. It was only a flirtation on my part, tlibugh she was as lovely a flower as one could wish to meet. But the simple thing thought I was in deadly earnest, and took it greatly to heart, as. I afterwards learned. I thought she was dead; but it seems that she lived over her troubles, and has become quite a star in society." vM& J£- It was tirue?" Five' years ^^efodrArdelle Grahame bad been a thoughtless, happy maiden niton whpm; Earle Cathcart had m & beauty daily increased, and he had fevf opportunities of seeing her alone. " The days and weeks went by. Ardel Graham and Florence Dinsmore becam like sisters, and were seldom separate! They read together, rode together, an went boating together. Indeed theti seemed something remarkable in this su den friendship which had grown up b tween the fair girl and her more stron minded companion. Earle Cathcart coiili not conceal his vexation.

How beautiful she looked as she stood there on the beach with the sunshine rippling over the graceful folds of her jaunty dress, her golden hair flowing out on the warm breeze! It was a picture he remembered well in after years. »He saw them sail away, and anticipated no danger. Why should he? The waters were calm and-bright, and Miss Grahame was a capital oarsman; she had been known to venture out to sea in her frail boat, even in the ipidst of storms. So through the long bright day he waited for his loved ones. But when evening came and the wanderers had not returned Earle Cathcart grew worried and anxious. To make matters worse, black clouds were thronging from, the west with every indication of a storm; He went out and paiced wildly to and fro, upon the sand, peering anxiously at the dark sea and black clouds. A great horror came upon him. - What had happened? Would Florence never return? Would the storm overtake them and keep his loved one from his sight forever? ' He shuddered with deadly anguish at the thought, and the first prayer he had uttered for many a long year arose from his heart. jnow, Earle Cathcart has never been seen \to smile.

While it is true that many who at one time indulged in ardent spirits have abstained later in life, it is not believed that there is any real cure for the thirst created by alcoholism. But a person that claims to have.cured himself gives a remedy that there would be no harm in trying. We reproduce it in the rescued person's own words: " I was one of those unfortunates given to strong drink. When I left it off I felt a horrid want of something I must have or go distracted. I could neither eat, work nor sleep. Explaining my affliction to a man of much education and experience, lie advised me to make a decoction of ground quassia, a half ounce steeped in a pint of vinegar, and to put about a small teaspoonful of it in a little water, and to drink it down every time the liquor thirst came on me violently. I found it satisfied the cravings, and it also gave a feeling of stimulus and strength. I continued this cure, and persevered till the thirst was conquered. For two years I have not tasted liquor, and I have no desire for it. Lately, to try my strength, I have handled and smelt whiskey, but I have no temptation to take It. 1 give this for the consideration of the unfortunate, several of whom I know liavt; recovered by means which I no longer require." a NO. llf Hints for Hot Weather, Don't shake the hornet's nest to see if any of the family are at home.

Work on the buildings in which the New Orleans Cotton Exposition is to be held is being rapidly pushed forward. It is thought that all the buildings will be completed and exhibits in position on the opening day. This exposition promises to be one of the grandest that has ever been held in this country, and its friends claim it will rival the Centennial of 187G, held in Philadelphia. It will certainly be a. great event for New Orleans and the South in general. Undoubtedly many people of the Northern States will visit this exposition and compare notes with their business brethren of the South. Such a comparison can only result in a better understanding between all sections, and acknowledge of the needs of our whole :^'6PLI^^J*WHY-D4DN%+^OUNTRYR'V'"--F •' "God help her!

Driven into tumult by the fury of the storm, the white crested, waves foamed and dashed against the beach where he stood, as if to mock his grief. Many anxious groups gathered-in the hotel parlors, and fires were built upon the beach, which blazed up despite the flood of water, flashing their spectral light far out on the mad billows. Then came a call for a boat, and as it-was brought forward Earle Cathcart sprang within and seized the oars. But before he stirred from the shore Cecil Hamilton seized his friend's hand. "Earle Cathcart, are you mad? Yotir boat would crack like an egg shell in yonder foaming waters. Besides, there; is no need. God help you to bear up, b'ut Florence " ' "Is dead." • • .

When the darkness closes in about him jpihd he is alone, and compelled to be honest with himself. And not a bright thbught, not a generous impulse, not a manly act, not a word of blessing, not a grateful look, comes to bless him again. Not a penny dropped into the outstretched hand of poverty, nor the balm of a loving word dropped into an aching heart; no .sunbeam of encouragement cast upon a struggling life; the strong right hand of fellowship reached out to help some fallen nian to his feet—when none of these things come to him / as the '^God bless you" of the departed day, how lie must hate himself.

After being there a year, he began to flatter himself that his sister was proof against such nonsense when he received a letter signed Jessica instead of Jessie, as heretofore. In answering he wrote something like this : " Dear Sister Jessica—Your welcome letter received. &ammaica and papaica are well.

The World's Exposition that is to be opened at New Orleans is so far perfected in all its departments that it is now in order to state that it will be the largest world's fair ever held. , The exhibits outnumber those of any previous exposition. Each of the States, except possibly one or two, will be represented by an exhibit. Congress has made a loan of $l,000,000-in favor of this centennial exposition. The United States Government will make a special exhibit, the largest it has ever attempted, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, and to that end a mammoth building is being erected in the group of exposition buildings. The Mexican Government has appropriated $200,000, and will erect a special building for its unique display. The Central American republics have been aroused from their long slumber and will be "fully represented for tli* first time among the great nations of the earth.

COAL. • * The best article of Coal always on hand and at the lowest prices. G. W. WATROUS, Windsor Locks, Conn. - You go to a summer liotel down by the sounding sea or away up in the frowning mountains. Well, there comes a day raw, foggy, cold, the mercury drops thirty-eight degrees an two hours. You wander all over the house, up stairs and down, shivering in your summer clothes, hunting a fire. There is none. There isn't a' fireplace in; the house. Nora stove. Nor any place to put one. You can't have a fire. You can sit around and shiver, and that's the best you can do, and you don't have to make any effort to do it. Who ever heard of fires in a summer hotel ? the proprietor scornfully asks, and the clerk says, with great scorn, that nobody eVer asks for such a thing except .some greenhorn from the West.. That's all right, you are accustomed to have the proprietor and clerk use you for an ottoman, so you don't mind that^But about 2 o'clock the next week, when you are in bed snatching a moment's sleep, while the mosquitoes go out and sing, -when it is so hot that the shingles on . the house warp and curl up, the hotel catches lire in six places, burns to the ground and you escape with the clothes that you wear in bed. That's what makes yori -mad. • . PMRMS,BLACKHEADS,ETC.—Permanently cured by the use of Pearl's White Glycerine.
