The pilgrims went by (God's command- So you will go through Slumberland. Upon what ocean blue and deep, Across what mountains fierce and cold, With snow-wrapped summits, fold on fold, Or through what valley, safe and low, Will my wee bed-time traveler go? While Ia tender vigil keep Over the fortunes of her sleep.

THE CHRONICLE. ('OLFAX. - LOUISIANA THE JUNE CRICKET. In the Madison Square Park. Tented in the short ,reen grass. While the moon shone in the sky A crloket, close to those who pass, Uttered the old familiar cry, Little heeded he the no se Of the crowded city str, et, But blew his flute with strdent voice Unmindful of the tramp of feet. Hundreds briskly hurry by,. Listless to thie song they pass; No policeman stops his cry. Or orders him: "Keep off the grass!" I who note the steady tune That he with such relish plays, Wonder how this note of June Came to take the city ways. Far from native haunts withdrawn, He sings the old song at my feet The prelude of a country lawn Salutes the curious city street. Rustic scenes are not at hand; No rippling rivulet wanders near: Hard it is to understand This voice in such an atmosphere. Brave I ttle cricket, pipe away; Let your blitheness melt in songi 'Tis the cheeriest roundelay; I shall thank you for it long. Torn from spriag-time, robbed of J...
