LOVE A SHAM. At church I sit within her pew. Oh, pugh! But there I heard No pious word — I saw alone her eyes of blue. I saw her bow her head so gracious— Oh, gracious! The choir sang, The organ rang, And seemed to fill the building spacious. I could not hear the gospel law, Oh, la! My future briie Was by my side — I found all else a mighty law. And so, when pealed the organ's thunder, Oh, thunder 1 I fixed my eyes In mute surprise On her whose beauty was a wonder. To me_the maiden was most dear, Oh, dear! And she was mine, Joy too divine For human words to picture here. Her love seemed like a prayer to bless me, Oh, bless me! Before she came My life was tarne — My rarest joys could but oppress.me. The service done, we sought the shore, Oh, pshaw 1 And there we walked And sadly talked More sadly .than c' er before. I thought she was a type of goodness, Oh, goodness! But on that day I heard her say whose very tone was rudeness. We strayed_beyond the tide's mill-dam— Oh, dam! She jilt...

Gaiter Gapers vs. Gaiter Wearers.—A gaiter-gaper and step-waiter, incensed at the charge that all the wearing in and around our churches is done by the masculine creatures, and that that portion of creation known as a "sideissue'' alias feminine?, don't do any of the peeping at all, sends us the following: CHURCH BELLES. Coming in couples, Smiling so sweetly, Up the long aisle Tripping so neatly. Envying bonnets, Envying laces, Nodding at neighbors, Peering at faces, Whispering softly, Heeding no sermon: What they go there for Hard to determine. On all around them, Gazing benignly, Wholly unconsciously, Singing divinely, Prosy discoursing, Don't suit their whims; Plain they assemble Just for "the "hims." 1 -»■ A Boston poet says : I have lingering love, I owi, For an old doctrine held by some, That woman's truest sphere is found Within the hallowed walls of home.

A Ramble Among Authors. Though man with man can scarce agree Upon a given thing, There are to whom we bow the knee, And to jfhose names we cling. Few ladies are without a "Hood," And ey'ry way you turn You meet with many people "Gay," And silent ones quite "Sterne." The race is seldom to the "Swift," (This fact is true, I "Hope ;'') The sternest Protestants admire A certain famous "Pope." The butcher has bis harmless "Lamb," (Which, sooth to say, he kills ;) And almost ev'ry country known Claims its especial "Mills." "Holland" is taken by the Dutch, And there awhile we'll staj ; While folks who like not brighter hues Aro partial to the "Gray."

The Roman Sentinel. Death or dishonor, which is best to taste? A Roman sentinel in Pompeii, When God's hot anger laid that city waste, Answered the question, and resolved to die. His duty was, upon his post to bide Till the relief came, let what might betide. He stood forgotten by the fleeing guard, Choosing that part which is the bitterest still, His face with its fixed purpose cold and hard, Cut in the resolute granite of his will. "Better," he said, "to die, than live in shame; Death wreathes fresh flowers round a brave man's name." Life is the wave's deep whisper on the shore, Of a great sea beyond. The sentry saw That day the light in broad sails hoisted ocr The drifting boat of dawn; nor dreamed the flaw, . , , The puff called death, would blow him with them by Out to the boundless sea beyond the sky. The sentry watched the mountain's fire-gashed cheeks, And saw come up the sand's entombing shower. The storm darts out its red tongue when it speaks, And fierce Vesuvius, in that...
