PFLOOD' TIDE. eCaine up as thp sun went down, And the river was full to its very brim, ad a little boat crept up to the town On the muddy wave, in the morning dim. But that little boat with its reed-like oar Brought news to the town that made it weep, And the people were never so gay before, And they never slept so sound a sleep. News of a wreck that the boatman had seen Off in the bay, in a fierce wild gale; Common enough such things, I ween, Yet the women cried and the men were pale. lStrange that a little boat could bring Tidings to plunge a town in tears; strange how often some small thing May shatter and shiver the hope of years. bh, cohe but the angel with silver wings That broods o'er the river and guards the town, Reeds half the woe each evening brings, As the tide comes up and the sun goes down. -Philade~phia Press.

?ROSUE DOO OLD * FASHIONED FOLKS. Somehow the people of to-day ain't as they used to be, At any rate, I'm pretty sure they're not the same to me. And while they're many just as good as those I used to know, There're scores and scores among them that are only so and so. We used to always take a man exactly as he said, But now it's safe to take him just the other way instead. It doc°s my hsa!t just lot4 of good to meet once in a while some of those good old-cashioned folks so nearly out of style. I wouldn't say the world in honesty is slipping back, I wouldn't say that Christians hunting grace have lost the track, I wouldn't say that men to-day are less the friends of truth, liecause they seem to differ from the ones I knew in youth.
