MEASURING THE BABY. Wo measured the riotous baby Against the cottage wall. A lily grew on the threshold, And the baby was just as tall; The wee pink fists of the baby Were never a moment still, Snatching at shine and shadow That danced on the lattice sill. His eyes were wide and sparkling, His mouth like a flower unblown. Two little feet, like funny white mice, Peeped out from his snowy gown; And we thought with a thrill of rapture That yet had a touch of pain, When June comes round with her roses We'd uieasuic the boy again. Ah. me! in a darkened chamber, With the sunshine shut away, Through tears that felt like bitter rain, We measured the boy to-day. And the little bare feet that were dimpled, And sweet as a budding ros^ Lay side by side together In a hush of long repose. Up from the dainty pillow, White as the risen dawn, The fair little face lay smiling. With the light of heaven thereon: And the dear little hands, like rose leaves Dropped from a rose, lay still, Never to snatch...

GEORGE WASHINGTON.! A Study of His Personality as Soldier, States man and Citizen. MONO great historical characters there is none exerting a wider or more potcut influence upon succeeding generations . than that of George Washington. It is conceded that all k history furnishes not another character so symmetrical in all pits parts as that of the first President of the United States. As a patriot, a citizen, a soldier and a statesman, Washing ton stands out in bold relief on the pages of history, the greatest American that ever lived. It is this magnificent equipoise of cbaractt r attributes that most strikingly im presses the student of his personality and achievements. It may be said of Washington as was said of Louis Phillipe: "He had no youth; he was born a man." Washington re ceived only a common school education. He was ever sen sitive of his educational limitations, and even after he had served as commauder-in-chief of the army, acted as President for two terms and indelibly s...
