THE VOICE AND THE TEAK.
HY ALFRED TEHNTE0JC.
The yoiee and the peak
Far over summit and lawn.
The. lone glow and lor.o roar,
Green rushing from tho rosy thrones of
All night have I heard the tho voico
Rave over the rocky bar;
Bui thou wort silent in heaven
Above thee glided tho star.
Hast thott no yoiee, oh, peak.
That ntandcth high abave all?
"I am the voice of the peak,
I roar and rave for I fall."
A thousand voices go
To north, south, east and west ;
They leave the heights and are troub!c J,
And moan and sink to their rest.
The field are fair Inside them.
The chestnut tr,vr rs iz. his bloom;
But ihey they feel the desire of th deep
F;dl and follow iliei. doom.
The deep Las power on the height,
Ana the height ius power on tho Jeop;
They ure raised for ever and ever.
And sink again into sleep.
Not raised for ever and ever.
But whm their cyclers o'er,
Tho valley, the voice, the peak, the star
Pass and are found no more.
The peak is high, and flush 'd
At his highest wilh sunrise tiro;
The peak i.: high, and the stars are high,
And the thought of a mau is higher.
A voice IkIow the voice.
And ft height leyond tho height;
Our hearing is not hearing.
And our seeing is not flight.
The voice of the peak,
Far into the heavtn withdrawn;
The lone glow and Iougroar,
Green rushing from the rosy thrones of
A MATRIMONIAL LECTURE.
After having been married some
weeks, it enmo into tho head of a
young husband iu this city, one
Sunday, when hs had but littlo to
occupy his mind, to tsuygest to hi;
wife that they should plainly find
honeHtlv state the faults that each
had discovered in tho other sinco
they had been man end wife. After
some hesitation tho wife agreed to tho
proposition, but stipulated that tho
rehersal should be made iu all nin
cer'ty and with an honest view to
the bettering of each other, as oth
erwise it would bo of no use to
r'age had opened their eves. The
husband was of tho samo mind, and
hiH wife asked him
to beiu with
her faults. lie was Fomewhat re
luctant, but his wife insisted that
ho was the first to propose tho mat
ter, and as he was at the head of
tho house it was his place to take
the lead. Thus urged, he began the
recital. He said:
"My dear, one of tho first faults I
observed in you after we began keep
ing house was that you a good deal
neglected the tinware. You didn't
keep it scoured as bright as it should
bo. My mother always took great
pride in her tinware and kept it as
bright as a dollar."
l am glad that you havo men
tioned it, dear," said tho wife.blush
inga littlo; "hereafter you shall see
no speck on cup or pau. Pray pro
ceed. 'T ' (
I have often observed," srad the
husband, "that you often use your
dish-rags a long time without wash
ing them, and then finally throw
them away. Now, when at home I
remember that my mother always
used to wash out her dish-rags when
she was done using them, and then
hang them up where they would dry
ready for the next time sho would
Blushing as before, tho young
wife promised to amend this fault.
The husband continued with a
most formidable list of similar faults
many more than we havo space to
enumerate, when he declared that
he could think of nothing more that
was worthy of mention .
"Now said he, "my dear, you
begin and tell me all the faults you
have observed in me since wo have
The young housewife sat in si
lence; her face flushed to the tem
ples, and a great lump camo in her
throat, which sho seemed to be
striving hard to swallow.
"Prcosd, my dear; tell mo all the
faults you have observed in me,
sparing none V
Arising suddenly from her seat,
the little wife burst into tears, and
throwing both arms about her hus
"Myjdear husband, you havo not
a fault in the world. If you have
even'one, my eyeaj havo been so
blinded by my love for you that as
long as wo have bosn married I have
never once observed it. In rnv exes
you are perfect, and r.U thr.t you do
seems to me to be done in the best
manner and ju t what ehould be
"But, my dear," said the husband,
his face reddening nnd his voice
growing husky rzith emotion, "just
think ; I have gone p.nd found r.ll
manner of fault with you. Now do
tell ms some of my faults; I know I
have many ten times as many as
you ever had or everjwillfchave. Let
mo hear them."
"Indeed, husband, itisjas I tell
you; you have net a singlo fault th it
I can sec. "Whatever you do seem?
right in my eyes; and now that -I
know what a good-for-nothing little
wretch I am, I sLMl at once begin
the work o? reform and try to make
myself more worthy of you."
"Nous n e, my dep.r, you krorr
sometimes I go away and lcavo yoi
without any wood cut; If;:pcad my
money for drinki and cigars when I
ought to bring it'homc to you; I "
"Xo, you don't" crie l his wifo;
"von do nothing of the kind. I like
to fO) you enjoy yourself; I should
bo unhappy were you to do otherwise
than just exactly as you do!"
"(icd bless vou Jittlo wife!" cried
the now thoroughly subjugated hus
band; "from this moment you have
net a fault ia tho world! Indeed you
never had a fault: I was but joking
don't remember a word I said!"
and he kissed away the tears that
still trembled in tho littlo w6man's
Never ng.un did the husband scru
tin'zo tho tinware nor examino the
dish-rag never r.o much as mention
one of the faults ho had enumerated;
but soon after tho neighbor women
were wont to say:
"It is wonderful hovr neat Mrs.
keeps everything alout Iter house.
Her tinware is always bright as a
new dollar; and I do believe she not
only washes but eiren irons her
dish-rags!" And the neighbor men
were heard to say : "What a steady
fellow M has got to be of late; ho
don't spend a dime where he used to
spend dollars, and can never be kept
from home half an hour when ho is
not at work. He seems almost to
worship that wife of his." Tho Vir

Stop again and give her hand a

However, that depends entirely on

can go on:
"Before I mot you, thi world
was a desert to me. I didn't take
any pleasure in going blackberrying
and stealing rare-i ipo peaches, and it
didn't matter whether tho sun shone
