All down the long narrow street
The windows wore wide all day;
The musks and the pinks smell sweet
In the hoxe; over the way.
The night is a iii'ht of June.
When the summer Howe's are born
And, above a sickle moon
Hangs over the coming corn.
No sigh of the past is there,
And the silence spellful feels;
When out on the dreamy air
The Old-Maid's music steals.
lhat must fill the eye with teal's
So sweet, so wistful, so old,
That ility of fifty years!
Even as I listen and hear,
Those years roll hack between,
And the long ago draws near,
Till 1 look on what has been.
And a sound of footsteps rings,
And the shadows move below
While she lifts her voice and
That ditv of loni; a!0.
And I see two figures pace
Together with lingering feet;
And now 'tis a girl's white face
That looks down the empty street.
And I see her lean and gaze,
And the crowd is black below-
But the Old Maid sits and plays
That dity of long ago!

lay is the longest day;
The musks and the pinks smell sweet
In the boxes over the way.

An English View.
The following editorial pub
lished in the London Times the
day after our election, shows the
interest manifested by the En
glish in the success of the dem
ocratic and President Cleveland :
Our advices this morning
would seem to indicate that Mr.
Cleveland has been re-elected
to the presidency of the United
States. Missouri and Arkansas
two of the strongest republican
Utatqs, have xptqrned- democrat
ic congressmen, while Maryland
and Florida are overwhelmingly
democratic. It will require
several weeks perhaps to hear
from Illinois, lying as it does
west of the Kocky mountains,
but Nevada, New Jersey, and
other of the so-called gulf states
would doubtless give the admin
istration their support. Mr.
Carter Harrison, the republican
candidate for the presidency, is
now in Europe. Apparently he
has takent but little interest in
the contest. England has been
brought into the American po
litical fight by men who know
nothing of this country, its peo
pie, or even its geography. It
is surprising how densly ignor
ant of English affairs the Amer
icans are. A later dispatch
says that Ex-Governor Hill of
Georgia has been defeated for
the mayoralty in New York."

He Knew What it Was.
A teacher in the High street
school, during the progress of a
lesson in physiology the other
day, used herself as a subject in
illustrating the different parts
of the body. No difficulty was
experienced in eliciting correct
answers as to the position of the
head, arms and lim!.s. "When,
however, the teacher described
something that was invisible the
scholars were mystified. She
asked about the location of the
backbone, and, indicating its
position in her own body, she
asked what it was. Nobody
could answer at first. Sudden
ly a bright thought occurred to
an observing youngster. His
eyes sparkled, and lie raised his
hand to attract the teachers at
tention. ""Well, John," she said,
"what do you call it?"
"Yer bustle," answered the
The information was too
" much for the school, and the
laughter that followed indicated
that the innocent mistake was
perceived by the other pupils.
