I was bus}- storing away my numerous traps, and did not hear what was said, . until, as it was getting near the time to start, Hall observed that he must go and see all clear.

"I knew by the smoke that so gracefully curled Above the green elms that a cottage was near, And I said, "If there's peace to be found ? in the world, A heart that was humble might hope for it here.!" . It was noon, and on flowers that languished around In silence repos'd the voluptuous bee; Ev'ry leaf-Was at rest, and I heard not a a sound But the woodpecker tapping the hollow beech tree.
