You placed this flower in her hand you say? This pure pale rose in her hand of clay! Methinks could she lift her sealed eyes They woujd meet your own with a grieved surprise! She has been your wife for many a year. When clouds hung low and when skies were clear; At your feet she laid he_r life's glad spring, And her summer's glorious blossoming. Her whole heart went with the hand you won; If its warm love waned as the years went on, !f it chilled in the grasp of an icy spell, What was the reason? I pray you tell. You can not? I can! and beside her bier My soul must speak, and your soul must hear, If she was not all that she might have been, Her's was the the sin! Whose was the fault if she did not grow Like a rose in the summer? Do you know? Does a lily grow when its leaves are chilled? Docs it bloom when its root is winter killed? For a little while, when you first were wed, Your love was like sunshine round her shed; Then a something crept between you two, You led where she could not follow you. With a man's firm tread you went and came; You lived for wealth, for power, for fame; Shut into her woman's work and ways. She heard the Nation chant your praise. But ah! you had dropped her hand the while; What time had you for a kiss, a smile? You two, with the same roof overhead, Were as far apart as the sundered dead. You in your manhood's strength and prime; and faded before her time, "Tis a common story. This rose you say You laid in her palid hand to-day? When did you give her a flower before? Ah, well! What matter, when all is o'er? Yet stay a moment; you'll wed again; I mean no reproach; 'tis the way of men. But I pray you think when some fairer face Shines like a star from her wonted place, That love will starve if it is not fed, That true hearts pray for their daily bread, Afternoon for March. LOSING THEM BOTH. The dearest little rosebud of a girl, with cheeks where a pink flush came and went, and blue eyes, with long golden-lrowa Jashes, aud hair that waved without the aid of pins or irons. I always thought her name the most suitable that could have been chosen fur her, though the only wonder is that old Farmer Bndd did not name his daughter Dehorah, Rebecca or Sarah Jane. Roseanna bad fortunately been her fa- ther's grandmother's name, however, and so she came as Rose Budd into the world; for Mr. Budd had made the Anna a mid- dle name instead of the first and dropped it. When I began to like Rose Budd so much that I seriously thought of proposing to her, Riram Roper liked her too. He was five years older than I; a plain man of twenty-nine, with faint sears on his face, and a .bald spot on the top of hi? head. A poor man, studying medicine late in life because he had not been able to study in his hoping for his diploma in a year, with a practice all in the future; and I, at twenty-four, had the Mosswood estate fur my own, and money enough to live on comfortably. There eould he no comparison drawn be- tween us, I fundly hoped, that, would not be favorable to uie; and I coolly, though politely, took my place before him, and cut him on all occasions with Rosebud. I, young, rit'h and handsome, and, as I supposed, elegantly dressed; he, plain, poor and shabby, looking ten years older than he really was. What chance had he against me? And so he slipped quietly into the back- ground, and I made love to Rosebud, and one day kissed her on the cheek, and told her life would not be worth having if I could not win her, and she said nothing, but outblushed all the roses, and she let me kiss her again. After that we walked boldly arm in arm through the village, and friends teased me, and the beaux dropped away, and one day I gave her a ring to wear upon her left band forefinger. Two weeks from that day I went to Lon- don on business. 1 intended to stay a week, but I was so successful that I remained longer; finally I went into business in the city and began to know people. I visited at the houses of wealthy mer- chants and mol their wives and daughters, I shall not copy that cowardly letter love me then and does not now, and I had here. lost her. And Roper had won her.

I life fragrant. After that, no more letters in yellow en- velopes came to trouble me, and I paid at- tention to Miss Hanover, and invested my money according to Mr. Hanover's advice. And days and weeks and months rolled by, and if I thought of my little Rosebud, withering because the sunlight of my love was withdrawn from it, crossed my mind, I drove it away with a sigh. I could not help it, I was fate. Fate meant me for Miss Hanover, and we had met, that was all. No, not quite all; for one remem- ber it was the day after a splendid ball, and I called on Miss Hanover, whose escort I AKIGHT TO BE REMEMBERED. Six Attempts to Destroy Colnmbus by Fire on a Sunday Wildest Excitement in. tne Capital City. COLUMBUS, March night was one that will be long remembered by the citizens of Columbus. About 8 o'clock the alarm of fire was sounded calling the depart- ment over the river and into the eastern portion of the city. The fire was found to be in the three story extensive brick ware- house of William Moneypenny, which was i filled with graiu, stearine, flower, etc. j By the time the fire department reached Painful Consequence of Swallowing- His the premises the flames had gained such headway that all hopes .of saving the build- ing were abandoned.

I had come to the city with a moderate competence. I dad increased it by speculation, until I was IS STILL IS THE Clothing Bnsinss AT.

There remained to me only the Mosswood property, which must bo turned into a farm, and I myself must leave my hope of being one of the city millionaires behind mo and become a plain man of the same social status as Rose Budd's father, without his comfortable knowledge of money in the bank to co_mfort me. However, with the burstinjr of the bub- ble fortune, the circle which gathered about Hanover had been seemingly scattered to the wiiids, the people knew that Miss Vio- lette had jilted me, and knew also that my money was gone. The city had lost many of its charms and I wrote to the old woman who had kept the house at Mosswood for my widowed father until his death, to make it ready for my return. Then sending the furniture of my bache- lor rooms, and packing my smaller belong- ings in a trunk, I started homeward. I must go back to Moscwood and become a farmer. I should find Rosebud fading gradually away, of course, aud yet I knew that she would be prettier than ever. How she had loved ungrateful I had been for that love. Now I would make amends. I would write as many repentant letters as were necessary, and she would, of course, for- give me. No woman ever forgets or ceases to love any man she has ever loved, you know. Yes, after a little maidenly resis- tance, Rosebud would bloom again fur me. I WHS sure of this as the train bore me oo- ward. as I was sure that the moon would rise that night. There is no adage more true than the one that declares that misfortunes never come alone, but always in troops. Often, of course, one brings the other. In my case, the anxieties that had trooped so thickly about me made me uervoasf and so led to a severe accident. Having alighted at a certain station, I delayed my return to the carriages until they had started. I remember running af- ter them, and do I remember then! Darkneei, dreams, pain, an awaken- ing in a little room, with white curtains and a toilet table, and a vision charmingly dressed. Then some one saying: "Yes, yes, yes; I think he'll do." And, understanding that this was my friend, Hiram Roper, I asked: "How did I come trying to sit up and failing in the attempt. said Hiram, "wife and I were at the station, and I saw you were a good deal and wo brought you on. You know this is my said I. "And you are mar- ried and in practice, I suppose." said Roper. "Oh, yes; getting on famously. And you've had a bad time, but you'll be all rightsoon. Come and tel! him he will, Rosebud." And there was Rose. After 1 had ruminated on that fact a few minutes I felt that truth was stranger than fiction. "Are you better, Mr. saic died here on the 4th singular circumstances. His name was Wagonseller. He was thirty-eight rears of age and was employed in a cotton 'actory at Fairtnount. One evening in De- cember last he entered a Chestnut street to get supper. When about lalf through the meal he suddenly felt something sharp and pointed going down iis throat, causing him intense pain. For i moment he thought he had swallowed a large sharp piece of bone, but putting his land to his mouth instinctively on feeling the pain, he found that his false teeth were missing, and he knew that it must bave been they which had gone down his ihroat. The teeth were three in number. They were fastened to a silver plate, and bad been in his mouth for many years. Recently the hooks holding them in place had worn loose, and the artificial teeth had annoyed him by falling from his mouth several times. Plate and all had gone iown his throat, and he could feel them lodged against his breast. Alarmed and suffering intensely, Wagonseller went to his home, which was in a suburb of the iity in Paxson street, be- tween Fifty-first and Fifty-second. He could cat no solid food, and for two days took nothing into his stomach. On the third day he managed to force down a lit- tle bread and milk. On this day the suf- ferer went to the University Hospital to see Dr. Agnuw, who, after examining him, seemed to have little hope of saving 1 1'J? Ins life. Wagonseller then came to Philadelphia to stop at his sister's house to receive treatment from her physician, Dr. Stew- art, of No, Green street. THE MAN GROWS WORSE. Dr. Stewart was called on to visit the paaent on the fifth day after the occur- rence. He advised him to take a swallow of gin as the readiest means of dislodging the teeth, which still remained in his throat. The patient followed his advice, and almost immediately felt the teeth go- ing down. But this only lead to a worse result. The teeth moved down and lodged consumed. Just about the time the fire per a man 8pent jts fury and the firemen were under very I thjnidna, of eoine back to their resoective and by degrees I began to understand that bendiDg t'oward- avelini aseiits for this Plow, an only sold in thl y a little party of masked freebooters, tut the foot-pads had the drop upon the unsuspecting passengers, and what could ihey do? The officers may have been neg- igentinnot having their arms in their lands, instead of underneath the seats of their vehicles, and in not having their guard immediately at hand, but when they were ordered to throw up their hands in .he presence of experienced road agents ,he time for the exercise of valor was past, and discretion was about all that was left. All the circumstantial evidence now at land leads to the belief that, the robbery was deliberately planned, and that the 'ootpads knew that the ambulance con- tained a considerable sum of money. Lieut. Rioe inquired of the captain of the road-agents whether any wagon had passed on in advance, and was answered in she negative. But then the robbers were not communicative by any means. The robbers spoke to each other by numbers instead of by names. While they were ;oing through the officers and Mr. Cohn, _jieut. Ricegnizzed "Number Two" about the Indians in the country, and the robber Tell into the lieutenant's trap, but was quickly snatched out by the captain of the gang singing out, "Number Two don't talk so much." Rice wanted to see what kind of a voice the robber had. The captain saw the point, and kept his numbers one, two and three quiet. The captain did what little talking was necessary. "Silence was golden." Talking of legs, Mr. Cohn says that they were about all of the person that was visi- ble, the black masks completely Covering their faces, and their buttoned coats giving all of them a similar appearance. Mr. Cohn critically examined one of the two pads, whose legs was encased in dirty- brown overalls, and he was about to pur- sue his inspection, when the road agent in his rear ordered him to keep his eyes to the front if he wanted to save his head. Colin remarked that his hands were cold and he was trying to keep them warm. "Stand just where you are and I'll get your and going to the ambulance, be got the gloves and gave them to Cohn. These road agents, by the way, were cour- teous and high-toned and though occasion- ally harsh in their language, they were not disposed to treat their victims with un- necessary violence.

UTICA, N. Y., February weeks ago the Italian Consul at New York city received a plaintive letter, dated at Syra- cuse, from four young Italian musicians, praying tu be taken anayiug from a brutal padrone named Giovanni The Consul laid the case before the Socie- ty for t-he Prevention of Cruelty to Chil- dien. The padrone, hearing officers were on his track, fled to Canada with the boys, where he remained one month. Recently the padrone tod his four little slaves came to Utica. The boys had been instructed by the padrone to give fictitious names, in hopes of throwing the officers off the scent. The Utica police finally succeeded in estab- lishing the identity of the padrone, and he was yesterday arraigned before the Record- er of this city. The testimony developed was pitiful to the degree of tragedy. The musicians told of the brutality of the padrone, and of their own starvation and suffering from cold. The boys are all below thirteen years, but with violins and harps have made an average of per day for the padrone. Returning with a less amount they have been kicked, starved aud beaten. The padrone, when arrested, had nearly on his person, of which was is gold pieces, sewed in the lining of his eoat. The Superintendent of the New York Society appeared as prosecutor, aid- ed by eminent counsel. The padrone was ably defended. After hearing the evidenee the Recorder fined the padrone, and com- pelled him to pay each musician The evidence shows that the padrone system prevails throughout the United States and Canada. The padrones are banded to carry on this traffic in musicians. They have large funds at their command. Letters found on the person of. the padrone convicted here to-day show that in the past eighteen months he has sent to Italy- over realized from the four boys just released. The Superintendent of the flew York society says Romagnano will now he prosecuted in the United States Courts, and that conviction is assured. The boys left for New York last night, and will be sent back to Italy. The padrone has a handsome estate in Italy, and the Italian Consul gives assurances that the authori- ties there will proceed against Romagnano for violation of Italian law in taking chil- dren from parents under false representa- tions. The padrone is a brother-in-law of Antonio Brigliors arrested in New York for a dastardly assault on the persons of little girls whom he held in slavery as mu- sicians. The New York Society is deter- mined to break up the padrone system. Killing of Onail Prohibited. Following is a copy of the bill which has passed both branches of the General As- sembly, and is now a law, prohibiting the killing or injuring of quail, or Virginia par- tridge, or prairie chickens in this State: To prevent the killing or injuring of quail, or Virginia partridge, and prairie chick- ens.
