A REPENTED HEROISM. It was not poor Ethel's fault in the least. She could not prevent Tom Ken dall loving her any more than she could help being the dimpled, merry little body that she was. Tom could not have told you when he began to care for her, be cause as far back as he could remember Ethel had been thg prettiest girl in the world to him. Only a low garden wall separated the two houses, and it was quite natural that Tom should come over it every day. It was a little shorter way than around through the gate, he would say; and Ethel gazed admiringly at him as he cleared the wall at a bound. Itwas lone some at home for him with only the old housekeeper and his father, and they did not take the lively interest which Ethel did in kites and dead insects. Tom's mother had died in giving birth to him; s...

BIRD-TIME. When rills from icy pris race, Like children ou to play, When meads with mantles green replace Their sleeping-gowns of gray, When tassels dec4t the forest tents In wizard silence spun, And pliant earth no more resents The fondness of the sun. What joy along the breezes bland At morn and eve to hear The music of the plumed band That hails the wakening year ! A winged voice is everywhere, The sunbeams singing shine. And every breath of tuneful air Is light as beaded wine. Unworn the ancient carols pour From throat of living bird, j The very strains that o'er and o'er, In venal gladness heard, 'he turtles cooed in fir and pine, And 'mid the myrtles sung The nightingales of Palestines, When Solomon was young. As dulcet fine, as crystal pure, The bluebird's warbled overture Wakes in our homestead tree; And the song-sparrow, April's pet, Salutes his fellows small, Aad trills his tremulous canzonet On every garden wall.
