Original Poetry. REMEMBRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 20 September 1892

(Spinat Ioctl. i REMEMBRANCE. I STOOD in a garden fair to see, One summer's day long long ago, The breeze from heaven blew pleasantly, And waved the flowrets to and fro. The roses bloomed in fair array, And modest rivulets were seen, The sunflowers shone that bright May day, And pansies reigned in pride serene. I marked the lilies purity, The delicate tints of lovely rose. The fern-like ponsiana tree, Whose scarlet foliage arose. But sweeter far than flowrets hue, Was my darling's face wliich smiled on rae, I knew lier love was deep and true, And life was full of joy for me. The summer passed, when winter came, Aud faded leaves o'er earth were spread, Then, then began my bitter pain, I'or she I loved so well was dead. J. F. McC. August 25tli, 1892.

When Barold saw her next, he was-struck by a slight bat distinctly definable change be recognised in her dress and coiffure. Her pretty hair had a rather less " professional" appearance ; he had thc pleasure of observing, for the first time, how very white her forehead was, and how delicate the arch of her eyebrows ; her dress bad a novel air of simplicity, and the diamond rings were nowhere to.be seen. " She's better dressed than usual," he said to himself. " And she's always well dressed, j rather too well dressed, the fact ...
