"Go forth, my dlear little angel band, In holiday paths to roam, matter like flowers throughout the land, Bring joy to each home. sweet home, Till September." A father stood on his own high stoop, A cloud of woe in his eon: He thinks of that ranting. roaring troop Fo soon to be heard and seen. "All! they come! they come. the demon throng. To harrow my soul with care. But I have a cane full thick and long, And I warn them to beware. Till September." The dogs all fly to the cellar dark, The cats get under the bed. The sparrows twitter in as-uare and park, The Chinaman h des his head. The organ-monkey is sick and sad, The horses are scared and shy: For lo' here corres the holiday lad. Jumping. shouting and running like msa. Tremble, ye mothers, an l shake each dad, And the storm will rage full high ...

Ariaes al Nedlelas, I T ýp tupre of arnlea so ertenahely employed s n outward sfpliction to sorbs and braises, Is prepared from plants nearly related to the common wild asters. There are numerous spe cies, mostly natives of Europe, with two or three of North American origin. The one most valued is the Arnica mon tana, common throughout the greater part of Northern Europe and Asia, from the%ea level to the region of perpetual snow on the mountains. It is a peren nial, hairy plant, with large entire op posite leaves, the lower ones obovate oblong, with fine nerves. The stems are branohing, each bearing a termin:al cluster of yellow flowers. It is a viru lent plant, possessing powerful narcotic properties, which are said by Lindley, an his "Medical Flora," to be due to the presence of an acid substance known as eytesine. The active properties of arnica have probably been greatly exagerated, fot in some parts of Europe, especially in Germany, it is supposed to cure fever and ague, pals...

And black and golden curls. He takes them out a-rtding, He takes them to the hope. And often in their honor Visits the candy-shops. With them he goes a-bathing Upon the shinlng strand, And then they sit and gossip Upon the shelly sand He takes them to the races, And on the horses bets, And writing not a letter, Matilda he forgets.
