Bcforo I trust my fata to thee,
Or place my hand in tlitno,
Bcforo I lot thy luture givo
Color and form to mine,
Boforo I paril all for thee,
Question thy aoul to-night for mo.
I break all slighter bonds, nor feci
A shadow of rcRrot;
Is thcro ono link In tho past,
That holds thy spirit yet ?
Or is thy fate so clear and froo
As that whloh I can plodgo to thec?
Docs thero within thy dimmer t dreams
A nosslblo futuro shlno,
Wherein thy lifo could honccforth broatho
Untouched, unshared by mlno?
If so, at any pain or cost,
0, tell me, boforo all is lost I
Look deeper still. If thou enns't feel
Within thy inmost soul,
That thou halt kept a portion back,
While I have, staked tho wholo j
Lot no falso pity sparo the blow,
But in truo mercy toll me so.
Is thcro within thy heart a need
Thatmiuo connot fulfill ?
Ono chord that noy other hand
Could bottor wako, or still?
Spotk now, lost at aomo futuro day
My wholo lifo wither and decay.
Lives thcro within thy nature, hid,
Tho demon-spirit, Change,
Shedding a pasting glory still
On all things now and strange?
It may not bo thy fault alono
But shield my hoart against thy own.
Coulas't thou withdraw thy hand ono day
And answer to thy claim,
That fate and that to-day's inlatako
Not thou had bcon to blamo ?
Somosootho thoir conscience thus; but thou
Wilt surely warn and savo mo now.
Nay answer not I dare not hoar
Tho words would corr.o too late;
Yet I would sparo thee all remorse;

Thoro aro ninety and nlnothat work and die,
In want and hungar and cold,
That onr may Ho in luxury,
And bo lapped In the silicon fold,
And ninety and nino, In their hovels bare,
And one in a palaco with riches rare.
By the sweat of their brow the desert blooms,
And tho forest before them falls ;
Their labor has builded humble homes,
And cities with lofty halls.
And the one owns cities and homes and lands,
And the ninety and nino have empty hands.
But the night so dreary and dark and long
At last shall the morning bring;
And over the land tho viotor'a song
Of the ninety and nino shall ring
And echo afar, from zone to zone,
" Rejoice! for Labor shall havo its ownt"
Wo givo below recipes from various
sources out of which Christinas dinnors
can bo composed to suit different tastes
and purees :
Honst Turkey. Pluck, singe, draw,
wipo throufrhly and truss a fine turkey ;
stufl' it with celery niuloystor dressing,
and cover with a shoot of buttered papor ;
roast in a stoady oven, basting frequently
with button A quarter of an hour bcforo

salt just bcforo serving; garnish with
browned sausages, and servo with a bout
of gravy. Timo of roasting, two or thrco
hours, necording to sizo.

basting, for five or six minutes, to kcop
tho gravy in.aftorward basto incessantly
with plenty of butter. A fow minutes
before serving lightly dredgo with flour,
then basto and send to table brown and
frothed. .Wild duck, if overdone, loses its
flavor; twonty to twenty-fivo minutos,
before tho right kind of fire, will bo
eutlicicnt. Serve on a very' hot, dry dish.
If dressed to porfection, tho duck will
givo sufficient gravy. Send to tho tablo

I'll tell you how tho leaves camo down;
Tho great treo to his children said:
"You'ro getting sleepy, Yellow and Brown,
Yes, very sleepy, littlo Keel;
It's quito time you went to bed."
"Ah," begged each silly, pouting leaf.
"Let us a littlo longer stay;
Dear Father Tree, behold our grief,
'Tis such a very pleasant day,
Wo do not want to go away.'
So just for ono moro morry day
To tho great trco tho leaflets clung,
Frolicked and danced and had their way,
Upon tho autumn breezes swung,
Whispering all their sports amongt
"Perhaps tho great trco will forget,
And let us stay until tho spring
If wo all beg and coax and fret,"
But tho great Trco did no such thing;
lie smiled to hear the whispering,
"Como, children, all to bed," ho cried;
And ero tho leaves could urgo their prayer
Ho shook his head, and far and wide,
Fluttorcd and rustled overywhero
Down sped tho leaflets through tlin air.
I saw them! on tho ground thoy Isy,
Qoldcn and red, n huddled swarm,
Waiting till ono from far away,
Whito bcd'clothos heaped upon her arm,
Should como to wrap them safe and warm.
The great, b:ro Trco looked down, and milled,
"Good night, dear littlo leaves," ho said;
And from bolow caoh sleepy child
Replied "Good night," and murmured,
"It is to nice to go to bed."
Onco moro tho liberal year laughs out
O'er richer shores than gems or gold;
Onco mora with harvest song and shout
Is Nature's bloodless triumph told.
Our common mother rests and liugs,
Ltko Iluth among tho garnered sheaves;
Ilcr lap It full of good things,
Her brow is bright with autumn leaves.
0, favors every year mado new,
0 gifts with rain and sunshine sont I
Tho bounty overruns our due,
Tho fullness shames our discontent.
Wo shut our eyes, tho flowers bloom om
Wo murmur, but tho corn-oars fill;
Wo choose tho shadow; but tho sun,
That cast it, shines behind us still.
Thcro aro four letters on hand this
wock, which shows that thoro is still an
interest in tho Lcttor Box. Most of tho
writers send n riddlo to solvo. Aunt
Hotty has found somo good ones, too,
nnd hopos that thoro will 1k enough in
terest shown to encourngo her to keep it
up. Wo w5b1i to givo somo that will
mako tho girls and boys think aud study,
thoso that will call out a knowledgo of
things that will improvo tho mind. AVo
will givo ono this week, and givo tho an
swer nt tho samo timo, so that it can bo
shown how to solvo another of tho samo
Littlo Eflio comos this week to do her
part by writing a letter; sho is ono of tho
dear littlo girls who helps hor mother
about tho house, loving and taking enro
of baby sister. It is great fun to hunt
up tho eggs ; Aunt Hetty don't forget
how happy sho was to find n nest full
hid nwny so carefully in tho clean hay.
Efllo must remember that tho chick
must bo woll fod to bo nblo to get eggs
now, that sho must gather nil tho old
bones and burn tkoni, pounding thom
up fine, eo that there shall bo no excuse
for Mrs. Biddy to neglect her duty.
Then Eflio must look out for all tho
scraps of fresh moat, cutting up rofuso
pieces whonovcr an animal is killed to
oat, tor thcro are not many bugs aud
worms to cat at this season. Keep tho
chicks tamo, too, so that they can ho
called up to feed. It is very conveniont
sometimes to bo ablo to catch a fowl
in a hurry; it seems so cruel to havo to
shoot chickens, then no animal thrives
that is afraid and wild.
Dccdio writes tho first, too. Tho rid
dlo sho sonds is a very old-fashioned
one, so no doubt that somo father or
mother will romomicr long enough
back to help tho littlo ones out with tho
answer. Ueodio must tell us next timo
what hor littlo hands can do to help.
Victoria has a riddle, too. Sho cooks
and sweeps ; wo wondor if Mio always
sweeps in tho corners, and if sho moves
tho chairs nnd tnbles so as to sweep
clean ; thon does sho leavo tho broom
just anywhere. There is an art in sweep
ing i well, so as not to wear out tho
cariot; even wliero there is no car
pet on the floor ono should use
tho broom lightly and with quick
strokes. Then after tho dust bottles
thero must bo a cloth kept in n handy
placo so that tho dust may bo wijxxl off
tho chairs, tables and wood work. This
should bo dono every timo n room is
swept, and every little girl will do it.
Mamio's letter is too short. Wo think
all of those littlo girls might have
thought of something moro to tell about.
Wo aro suro if any ono of them had mot
a littlo friend thero would havo been
plenty of news to toll each other. Ma
mio writes carefully and neatly and must
try again.

A Truo Coon Story.
Willio lay on tho floor crying.
Nothing special was the inattet ; ho
had only been having his afternoon nap,
and ho had. waked up cross, ns three-year-old
boys often do. Ho would Ijo all right
when ho was nwnko enough. Nolxxly
paid much attention to his crying at
such times ; they wero all used to it.
Tho door oponcd, and boino ono camo
in. SoiiifHing soft was put on tho floor
by his side, and then his father spoko ;
"Look thcro I Willie."
Willio stopped crying and looked up.
Something stood there on tho floor look
ing at him a littlo coon I Willio thought
it was a kitton,and said, "Kitty I"
"No," said his father, "Coony."
"Coonyl" said Willio, nnd from that
timo that was tho now pot's name, which
ho learned to know as well ns you do
Willie's fnthcr took him on his kneo
nnd told him whero ho found Coony.
IIo wns coming homo through tho woods
whon ho saw u coon come out of a
hollow trco n- littlo way off. Ho hurried
to the treo and reached into tho holo (I
wonder ho was not afrnid of snnkes),
and thero wero two baby coons just big
enough to walk. So ho brought ono
homo to Willie.
How pleased Willio wns with his pet,
for he hud no kitten! His littlo dog had
been bitten by n nittlcsuitko nnd died not
loin: before. Coonv seemed pleased with
his now homo nnd ntoinilk like n kitten.
IIo looked n good denl like n kitten, too,
except that his tail was striped in
regular rings of blown and black. Ho
becaino greatly attached to Willio and
followed him around all summer. Wher
ever Willio wns, out in the middle of tho
road making dirt-pies, in tho garden
pulling oil' tho flowers boforo they wore
fairly budded, or down nt tho dangerous
mill where ho wasn't allowed to go at nil,
Coony was closo nthis heels If at any
timo his pet wns missing, Willio's call,
"Coonyl Coony!'' would bring him very
Ono day in tho fall' when tho flies
wero very troublesome, Willio was tnking
his nap, and his mother set hor pinto of
fly paper down on tho floor, that tho flies
might hnvo u bottor chuueo nt it. it
wouldn't do to try that when Willio was
nwnko, of course.
Sho never thought of Coony, and tho
first sho know ho had lapped all tho
water oil' tho fly-paper I
Poor littlo fellow I It was poison, and
vory soon ho was hick enough, nnd be
fore Willio nwnko Coony wns dead I
Willio woke up quite happy and soon
called for Coony. Then his mother had
to tell him what had happened.
Poor Willio I Ho just laid down on
tho floor and cried, and I do not blamo
him, either.
So wo lenvo him where wo found him.
Lying on the floor and crying!
Eulalin (sentimentally) "Ob, no! T
have no desire for great wealth. I
should bo happy as the wife of u nohlo
Ocorgo (practically) "Aud I should
bo happy, vory happy, ns tho husband of
a good bread-maker."
