POETRY. , _____ The Doom of Araclme. BY ATLANTA. Tin April bub lit up tlie lovely land, And in the fields tho early flowers did grow, And laughing childreu wandered hand in hand To gather them; and the south wind did blow, And In the evening, when the moon, a-low, Shone through gray oli7C boughs’ HgW-1 rcL shades Walked in Its silver path*, tho ArgRo jnai Whether the moonlight or Jl10 Phon0' Y«t did Ani'ljWbreath of blossoms blown, ZaZZrZ* ton-. Siaiul patiently before her fljiug loom, And still ber busy shuttle like a dart Unerring flew—such was tlie maiden’s art. Here, it one hand, were tints of primrose pale, And here a deep sea-blue that changed to green, At this side kingly purple did prevail, Like darkeyed pansies; and again between The glowing hues, black threads and dun were seen; And a sort gray, like uines, was round one part Where flushed the color of tho peachflower’s heart: And In her pride Araclme scorned the song Thit echoed through the fields at early morn: Hor cared the simple folk to talk among; And when, by maids up to the temple borne, 8ho saw tho golden vase oi golden corn With violet wreaths twtncd round, she only said. “Why to a goddess Is this honor paid? “I know Demcter gives ns wealth of grain; Artemis lights the red moon evory night Before she leads the chase across the plain; To ns, through ocean waves are lifted white The li inds of rtnrtQ full of oearls. and bright They gleam: bnt pearls must dim, moons wane, seeds die— While gods and men live in my tapestry. “And if this hour, the gray sisters three, That spin the threads of life and calmly sit Watching the woes of men, should come to me For trial of skill, I would not flinch from it; My spindle faster still than theirs should flit: Twisting the rapid thread; and so hereby Goddess or mortal woman I defy 1“ Scarce were the words said, when with sudden fear Of her own voice, Arachne—though alone She deemed herself, and with no listener near— Looked back, and in the doorway saw a crone Who might be Eld itself, gray as a stone, Withered and bent, wrapped in a faded cloak; And to Arachne thus the old one spoke: “Who mocks the gods has only grief and death For that ho would; and they that heaven deflod, And would have likened them that are beneath To those above, have miserably diod; Such is the punishment of mortal pride: It is not yet too late—thy words recall”— But pale Arachne said, “I hold them all.” Ths aged woman suddenly let fall The cloak that covered her, and standing there Pallas appeared, statel., and calm and tall, In heavy trailing garments elothid fair, With clear blue eyes and knotted golden hair; In one hand was her shuttle—one hand grasped The faded cloak that she had just unclasped. Arachne for one moment silently Looked on her, and beheld how pitiless Was her still face, and terrified thereby, Although abe would, dared not her fhult confess; And in her quivering fingers did she press Her shuttle, knowing not what woe should come Upon her, waiting for her bitter doom. In silence still the busy fingers ply, And rapidly upon the webs there grew, In liveliest colors, many a history Of gods and men, and legends old and new; And faster yet the well-filled shuttles,flew; And all the day they wove, until at night The wondrous web of each was finished quite. Pallas bad wrought the high Olympian hill Whereon sat Jovo himself, and there near by Bode Aphrodite drawn by doves, and still Artemis stood serene, and brilliantly Of Here’s peacock glittered every eye: And in the border were the stories wrought Of mortals whom the gods had set at naught. Bnt pictured in Arachne’s web there stood Injustice of the gods, and wrongs of man; Woven of scarlet threads were drops of blood, And many silver threads like sad tears ran, And in dark colors, tragedies began, Lit up with brighter only when the maid Red lightnings flash, or yellow flame portrayed. Tjon fro-a their looms they stepped, and twilight brown Filled all the room, yet could Arachne see, By the dim light, avenging Pallas’ frown; And, standing there before her silently With folded hands and down-dropt eyelids, she Waited awhile, then a cold hand was laid Slowly upon the forehead of the maid. The night came heavily upon the land, In the gray rack the moon was hid away, And still Aracbnc, cold and tearless lay, Fearing not night, nor loving light of day; Knowing that now for her all Joy was past— And knowing not what woe should be her last. The morning dawned; and many a smiling maid Came, garlanded with roses red ami white; And stopped upon the threshold, half afraid. Seeing the chamber was deserted quite, And shadows hang about it, as if night Still lingered in its comers—and in one A spider sat within her web, and spun.

It increases the quantity of Nature’s Own Vitalizing Agent, Iron in the blood, and cures “a thousand ills,” simply by Toning up,Invigorating and Vitalizing the System. The en riched and vitalized blood per meates every part of the body, repairing damages and waste, searching out morbid secre tions, and leaving nothing for disease to feed upon. This is the secret of the won derful success of this remedy in curing Dyspepsia, Liver Com plaint, Dropsy, cnronic mar rhcea, Boils,If crvous Affections, Chills and Fevers, Humors, Loss of Constitutional Vigor, Diseases of the Kidneys and Bladder, Female Complaints, and all diseases originating in a bad state of the blood, or ac companied by debility or a lout state of the system.
