Wisconsin Patriot (Newspaper) - November 12, 1859, Madison, Wisconsin BY CARPENTER MADISON SATURDAY NOVEMBER 12 1859 34 Summer Beauty id a voice of complaining Comes from the hillside and are ringing

in generous soil And reapers were swinging their cradles and singing Blithe strains to enliven the toil are where are shading The low bed of the stream floating is sadly denoting That summer will like a dream Thf harvest moon sailing t rough mist is Her like a shield While school boy and maiden their baskets fruit laden Hie home from the blackberry field IHrk swells of ocean with Ions measured

a mild loneliness reigns A sweet haunting sadness though vanished a gladness And glory frum HOP VILLA This remark called forth quite a chorus of regretful expressions and made me for information as to the cause of such universal interest i Patience said Swinton and said a servant at the sime moment so I was fain to marshal my hostess to the dining room ana endure uncomplainingly several jocose

departing lover that he d t nd radiant in her i g carried her point iti till head to kiss her 1 a n to call this not look so grave surely a hasty better in the breach than in the observance But she had turned from him and glided si the room ere he could follow Sad and bitter were her reflections as she sat in her own luxurious chamber at She red glow of the low clear fire in the grate and the moonlight radiance of a single perfumed tiper burning through the transparent urn of an alabaster lamp fell on a troubled brow and tearful eyes Poor the wreaths of let in her hair were not yet withered the diamonds were yet flashing on her breast yet the sweet blossoms of hope were dead forever Her sorrowful resolution was soon u lay 1 and i She felt that she could never place all a wife's

young Altamont Effingham stopped in at his at the Nicholas the same afternoon said St James carelessly putting never more to rise again was mournful night of the The perfumed into darkness the bright fire died out into ashy chilliness and gloom and still ahe sat there her fair young head drooping on her rippling around her hand its bright curls is below ma'am vant the next noon as Lilly sat pale

tell you tnat tne oia vine we lamented the death of to-day is a veritable scion of the one which laid the foundation of tyrants these women arc St James made some so be patient a while longer ed to

having gained these would I en- danger then for money only think you need not enlarge upon it 20 to tae mistress of Hop illi light ruply but in and irritated both and Lilly Perhaps he thought she had been both unreasonable Beyond all the handsomest couple at Mrs giand soiree that night were St James im and Lillian Brooke and many an ing an I admiring glance was I cist on them they parsed amid the crowd Love youth we i was tinge I Fit for their they v I cove full of roses waltz ic beauty every hausted in her apartment are not shall I say you Tell said nay I will write a message And she hastily inscribed on a card the lowing But why are you so inquired Lilly you usually keep much better hours than this I know it he said moving the easy arm chair yet nearer to the blaze but to-night just as I was starting for home I was ed to the hospital to attend a poor wretch just brought thither So to the hospital I went though after all I was unable to be of any use to the poor fellow who was dying when I ar- rived What was the matter enquired Mrs ham Why it was tremens I think that long exposure to this bitter weather was the more immediate cause acting upon an un- constitution It was one of the est examples of intemperance I ever unfortunate man raved wildly and edly yet in language which led me to him to be far above the common class of ards But he was delirious up to the very time death He must have been a splendid looking fellow once for I never saw a finer or nobler even though ance had left its stamp everywhere Could you not ascertain who he We found his name on a few memoranda on his person after was it Strange that I should forget for I remember at the sime of being impressed with the idea that it was rather an and romantic I have it now It was James A sudden pang shot through Lilly's heart as her husband spoke the words but it was no sorrowing affection for the dead a tribute of memory to the beautiful and noble being of other days who to her had been long a corpse in burial vaults of the past And aa she drew nearer to her husband's manly form a silent thanksgiving went up from the depths of her soul that she had been blessed with hia deep love and tenderness through life instead of being irrevocably linked to the stormy ence and dark fate of him who had that night passed into eternity My darling said Woodman I have made you sad with this professional she said tenderly lying her cheek against his shoulder I was only thanking heaven that our lives had been so bright while so many around us are wretched Meanwhile the wintry blast wailed sadly and wildly round the lonely room where lay the ice-cold corpse of St James Effingham another victim to the monster Intemperance EXPERIENCE WITH A HEW SET OF We have been very much amused in listening to an acquaintance of ours when describing his experience with new set of teeth He re- have had all my teeth pulled out for to tell you the think they have been a curse to me always rather than a Now in their place I have had false ones put in and I must tell you my experience with my new masticators I felt when the set was lough I had a couple barrows full of paving stones laying around loose in my mouth and it seemed as if they were going to spilled out at every The first day I waited until every one had done not darine to make an exhibition of my teeth and run the risk of their dropping on the table Well I chewed a little and stopped chewed again and stopped and finally went to my room and laid the darned things on the back part of an upper shelf thinking they were no go The next day I tried them again bat with little ter success and after this I would carry them in my pocket occasionally trying the things on and every time experiencing some new One day they would feel M much like a great horse shoe with nails in it as anything and then again I could be certain had a great circular wheel stowed under my Some of my experiences were very They served me so many times that I was And so although it was like the tearing firat in M though I had a couple oV der of soul and body she laid away her dead u J ting rather tired of my bargain bat by The broken promise
