TRI-W { EKLY EDITION. WINNSBORO, S. C., JULY 3, 1879. VOL. IV.-NO. 14. WHAT MY LIFE 18 LIKE,. My life is like the shattered wreck, Cast by the waves upon the shore ; The broken mast, the rifted deck, Tell of the shipwreck that is o'er t Yet from the relics of the storm The mariner his raft will fo in .Again tA0ompt the faithless sea; But hope rebuilds no barquo for mo. My life is like the blighted oak, - That lifts its sere and withered form, Scathed by the lightning's Huddon stroke, Sternly to meet the coming storm ; t Yet round that sapless trunk will twine The curling tendrils of the vino, And life and frosbness there impart, Not to the passion-blighted heart. My life is like the desert rock, In the midocean, lone and droar, Worn by the wild waves' coaseless shock That round its base their surges rear ; Yet there the sea-moss still will cling, Some flower will find a cleft to spring, And breathe e'wn there a sweet perfiuno ; For me life's flowers no more will bloom. My life is li...

Scottish Abbeys. In the crowded and busy manufact. r1inu town of Dunfermllne, on the high bank of a river's bed, stand the walls of one of the grand old palaces of the Scottish kings; a reminder of the greatness of the ancient realn of North Britain. Close by them is the large abbey, still retaining sone beau tiful portions of its original structure. The ancient transepts and choir were destroyed, and their place has been supplied by a large, but painfully modern structure, in tended as a memorial to King Hobert the Bruce, whose body was laid in front of the altar of the old building ; it is now under the pulpit of the new. With cuestionable taste, his name and title are displayed in huge letters of stone arotini the top of the central tower. The nave. however, stood through the reformation. It has siu tiered from the Iands of restorers who have re placed some of its ancient windows by those of more iodern shape, and have built against its walls, supposed to be in lainger of lalling...
