Chosen for large designs, he had the art  
Of winning with his humor, and he went  
Straight to his mark, which was the lnnnan heart ;

Upon his back a more than Atlas—load-—  
The burden of the Connnonwealth was laid ; -  
He stooped, and rose up to it, though the road  
Shot suddenly downwards, not a whit dismayed.  
Hold. warriors, counselors, kings I All now give place  
To this dear benefactor of the race.

  The Vernal Touch. i
  STERN \Vinter meets his annual \\'aterloo the fourteenth of
 i February, and St. Valentine is the victor who bows t11e
I  hoary helmet of the Sovereign of the the Snows. For, what-
  ever the proclamation of the ground-hog and the goose·bone,
  it is then that Nature stirs from her slumbers and pushes back
  tl1e fringe of frost and whispers to the waiting soul a prophecy I
 I of spring. The season has a softness in harmony with its sen-
 j timent, and the day of dainty favors comes not in vain either V
  to the birds or to those not less callow though nnfeathered
  creatures whom we know as boys and girls. ’l`he projected I `
  influence of the spring turns backward, as it were. and fills .
  their blood with an anticipated warmth that has not yet come
  to vegetation; for the unmistakable thrill that pervades the
  earth when the old world turns over on his axis and begins
  his fresh dreams has not yet made the ground fecund or
  coaxed the shrubs and vines to let their little buds venture
 · forth in unequal battle with the nipping air. '
  And while the birds are mating and Nature murmurs her
  desires, tl1e boys and girls seein to know, sonnehow, that the
  period of sweet passion is upon ns: for they feel tl1e spring-
  tide dwelling in their veins before the vine’s vegetation dares
  to give visible sign of the snnnner’s coming. lt happens that
 ii` my domicile is directly on the line which these young things

sunshine breaks into a smile as it splinters itself against the  
frosty past.  
1 love to see these young spoonbills so lull of vernal sus-  
ceptibility and so unconscious of their outward manifestations  
of it. In good sooth, their love will not amount to much, and  
their gentle dalliauce is, in the main, but harmless by-play.  

 ,.I~ W4- _   E
  Yet their love is real love while it lasts ; and when it has ·
fi  passed and both of them have learned to smile at tl1e folly of
  it, they can look back upon it without a pang ; and the quiet
  laugh that comes to their hearts because of it is not unaccom-
  panied with a sigh—a sigh not of sorrow. with not one grain
  of bitterness in it, but merely the natural regret for days that
 i have gone which while they lasted were full of sweetness and
  when they died left roses of remembrance to make their graves
  fragrant. Now alone of all times in their lives can these
  young students love without suspicion, and trust without the ‘
  shadow of a doubt, and caress without tl1e intention to betray.
 T \\/ith a beautiful ignorance which is tl1e highest innocence do
 f they bare their transparent bosoms to the eye of every passer- l
  by, so that he who runs may count their heart·throbs as he
  l passes them upon tl1e street, and the secret that they think
  _ hidden in the sanctuary of their souls becomes tl1e property of
  every one who wills to read it. Unknown microcosms of
  Nature tl1ey are, and one with the April shower and the open—
  ing rose of May;
  This thing of love is a mystery anyhow——the sweetest
 g and the strangest of all mysteries--:-ind in its very likeness
  the nearest to the heart of Nature. The man whoiseeks so
 _ ardently possession of the maiden whom he loves; and who
  trembles with delightat the touch of her finger—tips ; and who
 __ would prefer the deep stake-pierced grave of the suicide to the
’   loss of her, in a little while after she has yielded l1er sweetness
`   to him bruises her cheek with his cruel blows and ` drives her ‘
·   crying, from his sight as he spurns her loathed `preseuce from
  him. And the woman wl1o to-day would give her heart‘sbl00d
Y   to ease the smallest pain that racks her lover‘s nerves, to—n10r-
`   row turns away from him, tl1ough he encompass her with all
l   the rich passion of an ardent and faithful heart, and waste her
V   worship on some worthless rival who has bought her with a
f ,  bauble and would sell her for a song. So stern Nature, fickle
  and unrelenting turn from us when we love her most; and
`   when she gives promise of most blithesorne sunshine hurls the
    Sharp sleet into our faces, When we seek her she avoids us,
i  , and when we would fly from her she environs us wish charms.

' To the man who waits for llCl' blessings they never come, and `
, upon hin1 wl1o can comniand them they are showered.  
  It is the province of us old chaps who lI£1\’€ passed our ,
l day of action to sit back and moralize over tl1ese things, 2llI(l >
I they do afford us Zll1ll)lC food for thought. The philosopher 5
at best is but an anatomist who disseets the frame which has  
‘ been tl1e l1on1e of life without {lPpl'Cl'l€l\(`llllg the suitable ez<·  
istence which eludes l1i111. He can not lay bare his own being. ? 
with the sealpel, and the nerves and muscles which he traces.  
` connect not with the impulses of his own intelligence. He  
can only know what is—-—the why and wherefore flee at his ap·  
proaeh, and leave him in tl1e midst of speculation,  
So he sees that the young men and maidens give premoniy  
tion of the spring before the spring has eome——they thrill with  
_ the impulses of tl1e world-soul before the sun has kissed the  
earth to sweet awakening from its slumbers. »\\·’hy is it and  
wherefore he can l]Ot know; he only knows it is, and knowing  
tl1at rejoices because the life he has felt and can feel no more  `
does not die because his blood is cold. I mind me, too, that  
with all his wise philosophy he is not insensible to the coming  
I of the vernal sun. The antie of these youngsters strangely  
interest him. and at times he almost wishes he were young  I
again and ganiboling among them. It takes a long time for  
the heart to die, and oftentimes when it seems dead there  
comes to it an unexpected waking. Then as the sun warms  
the chilled marrow in his old bones he is tempted to ery out:  
"And tl1e world-soul dare not harm me, , Z 
For a heaven-soul is 11lll`1CQ  
And my blood in its flaccid vessels  
Iioams like tl1e yeasty wine.  
Yea. the winter of death but brings me  
Into a blithcr spring,  
Where the dcwy stars are pansies I  
V In my garden blossoming." é·  
As I write these lines the storm howls outside my door  
and rain patters down froin a welkin of unrifted cloud. Yet  
can I enter fully inter the feeling which prompted the111 ? There  
is some suggestion of thunder amid the roar of the rushing

if wind, and a faint flash of sheet lightning quivers with blue
  phosphorescence through the closed shutters of 1ny window.
.— I hear the clown-pour from tl1e gutters tinkle on the tin con-
’ duits which relieve the roof above me from its load of mois-
  ture. and the dull monotony of sound would lull me to a slum-
  berous night of dreams were it not that tl1e innnortal mind is
  busy, pondering upon the universe and seeking some new ap-
i  plication of its treasure to the cravings of mankind. The
  thunder rolls more distinctly, spectres of the lightning dart
uf Htfully through the crevices of my window blinds. There '
  seems little under the firmament to be desired, or to be expect-
  ed or worth hoping for. It looks as if the Devil had tl1e round
  earth in a sling, like one of David’s pebbles, wherewith he
  might smite Chaos between the eyes and make a corpse of the
  fruitful but unguilded and unruled universe. _
  But as I turn in my revolving chair my foot strikes some-
‘   thing on the floor It is a leather top-string with a button on
 ` the end of it. The little beggar who is the owner of it lies
i   sleeping in his bed upstairs- I remember when he coaxed me
‘   for the nickel to buy tl1e top because tl1e bipger boys had won
‘   the last top that he had in "plngging for keeps." Without
{   going upstairs to look I can see him now, with tl1e long curls
F   of silken gold falling over his round chee
