Of the latter there are two forms: (a) the "gree. gree" that is administered to a perEon, and most usually conesists of an infusion made of roots, leaves or bark from trees supposcd to have the desired properties; (1) the " gree gres " that is prepared agains; a person.

Ioettp.; HERE'S A HEALTH TO THOSE WHO LOVE US. 5-4t--- Here's a health to those who love us, And a smile for those who hate; Kind heaven is above us And we may trust our fate. It loved ones fly before us, And those who hate betray, God's mercy still is o'er us On sorrow's darkest day. Then a health to those who love us, And a smile for those who hate ; Kind heaven is above us, And we may trust our fate. The love that in an hour WolI plume its wings and fly Elsewhere to try its power, Is hardly worth a sigh.

The world is full of sorrow, But has its pleasures, too Then do not trouble borrow, Life's bright side only view. Then a health to those who love us, And a...
