Tho Lovers' Walk. Come, darling, put you ban r in mine, And let us roam together. That we may drink with quickened heart. The joys of summer weather. Fair little hand-dear, busy hand For ever some good doing Reet now within this eager palm, In easnation of my woolog. The lilies great us, white and tall, Like sentinels'on duty; The fair queen roes nod and beak At as from bowere of beauty. The odour of the new.mown hay, Nature', sweec breath, gives greeting, As down the rosy Inoe we go, The walk so oft repeating. The buins skines bend hbove no, dear, In eilent benediction, Whle earthb and air and seas declare That true love is no ficsion. No darling I love Is very sweet Fr foud hearts brought together, But swereter stil it seems to uas In emiling summer weather. I now release this little hand As sunsoet shadows careep, love, And only pray that some glad day It may be mine to keep, love. -A-Ha, rd, A. KinoDD.

A GB1OULMURAL NOTES. The position V both tne farmer and graziler is just now far more serisus than is realised by the publio. The srainfall since the beginning of the year hasa been ununsually emall, end the wonder is how the pasturee haro managed to carry so much stook through the. winter. ID Is everywhere noticeable that the grass h"s not been so much affooted by the dry weather as the erops. At this season of toe year the wheat crops in the early districts ought to hbe at least lit. high, yet what do we find ? Orops sown as far back as Maroh and April are scarcely covering the ground, the young planto wearing quite a dwarfed, and froet.bitten appearanae. Some nloeehowers fell last week, about :1i. being registered in scmo places; but this has only been suffilent to the surface, and, unlers more rain fallas very soon, will damage the orops rather than otherwise, by attracting the roots along the surface soil in quest of too moiotare, and thus expcoee them to the high and drying wi...
