LYRICS FROM THE POETS. In childhood, when with eager eyes TIio season-measured years I view'd, All, garb'd in fairy guise, Pledged constantly ' ol you. ' Spring sans of heaven; Iho summit flowers Bade mo gazo on, and did 11 >t £ade: Even suns o'er autumn's huwers Heard iny strong wish, Mid 'stay'd. They came and went, the short-h\ed f-t m' four;* - Yet, as their varying daneo they wove, To. my young heart each bee His own sure claim of lovo. . F.t different now;-the whirling year . Vainly my dizzy evos ourriiu.*; . And its fair tints appear All blent in one dusk hue. Then what this world **to thee, my heart? Its gifts nor feed thee, nor can bless, - Thou hast no owner's part, In all its fleetingness. -J. M. Card. Newman.

CHAPTER LIV. Thus even-handed justice doth commend The ingredients ot the poisoned clmlico To our own lips. - Shakespeare. Tho Princess Troubotskoi was probably tho only ncrson in the government of Cheritz Klmn who wotdd treat, with a shadow of independence, tho authority of its ehiof. Having accompanied her hus band voluntarily into exile, sho was ex empt many of tho regulations and potty annoyances to which those who had been condemned for offences, real and imagin ary, were subjected., Added to which, tho facLs of her receiving anuually from St.-Petersburg a pittance from her vast fortune, and the interest which tho Em press was supposed to take in her suffer ings, were not without their weight. But all these considerations might have proved ineffectual with tho Governor but for tho diamonds of Charles Vavas sour, and the disappointment ho liad ex perienced in his search after tho money buried by Islnuael. llis first impression was that the assassin deceived him; tho second, that...

.POVERTY AS A BLESSING. Although it is generally a most un Qomfortablo feeling to bo poor, it can not ' ho denied tliat the world owes linro to poverty than to any other single factor in its development. l'ropare a list of tiie world's great est men, says Mr. Graham iiouci, and yon will iind that nine out ol; ten of them began . lifo as poor boys. Then prepare, another list embracing the world's great achievements, and you will discover f that the majority of these great' deeds wero performed by men who knew something about the pangs of poverty. Strange as this fact may seem at first thought, thoro is really nothing very remarkable about it when you corno to view the situation closely, for there is actually no greater hind rance to personal. development than the possession' of riches. It is- a well-established fact ' that men aro so constituted that 'they are unable to do .thehv"bost work except undur forced pressuro. .
