LIFE. Give me a taste of life! Not the tang of -a seasoned wie Not the drug of an unearned broad Not the grape of an untitled vine. The life that ia really life: That comes from no fount afar, But springs from the toil and strife In the world of things as they are. Give 'me the whole of life 1 The joy, the hope and the pain, Thestroggle whose end is strength, The loss that is infinite gain. Not the drought of a cloudless sky, Not the rust of a fruitless rest : Give me the sun and the storm; The calm and the white Sea-crest. Give me the best of life! To live in the woi-M with God, Where the seed that is sown and dies Lifts a harvest over the sod. Where beauty and truth are one. Where the right must have its way, Where the storm-clouds part for stars,' And the starlight heralds the day. Give me the toil of life ! The muscle and mind to dare, No luxury's lap for my head, No idly won wealth to share. Whether by pick or plane, Whether by tongue or pen, Let me not live in vain ; Let me do...

IMU RE AND A WOMAN'S WORK Nature and a woman's work combined nave produced the grandest remedy for woman's ills thafcHhe world has ever known. In the good old-fashioned days of our grandmothers they relied upon the roots and herbs of the field to cure disease and mitigate suffering. The Indians on our Western Plains to-day can produce roots and herbs for every ailment, and cure diseases that baffle the most skilled physicians who have spent years in the study of drugs. From the roots and herbs of the field Lydia E. Pinkham more than thirty years ago gave to the women of the world a remedy for their peculiar ills, more potent and efficacious than any combination of drugs. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is now recognized as the standard remedy for woman's ills. Mrs. Bertha Muff, of 615 N.C. St., Louisiana, Mo., writes : ' " Complete restoration to health means so much to me that for the sake of other suffering women I am willing to make my troubles public "For twelve years I ha...

SONGS UNSUNG. Let no poet, great or small, Say that be will sing a song) For song cometh, if at nil, Not because we woo it long, But because it suits its will, Tired at last of being still. Every song that has been sung Was before it took a voice, Waiting since the world was young, For the poet of its choice.. O, if any, waiting be, May they come to-day to me I I am ready to repeat Whatsoever they impart; Sorrows sent by them are sweet. They know how to heal the .heart ; Ay, and in the slightest strain Something serious doth remain. What are my white hairs forsooth, And the wrinkles on my brow? I have still the soul of youth, Try me, merry Muses, now ! I can still with numbers fleet Pill the world with dancing feet. No. I am no longer young. Old am I this many a year; But my songs will yet be sung. Though I shall not live to hear. O, my son that is to be, Sing my songs and think of me ! BichanJ Henry Stoddard.
