A HUMBLE THANKSGIVING. We cannot show a grand army Of toothsome things Thanksgiving I)ay? The day so very near; Our little pautry will not boast Delicious viands by tke host To every palate dear. 'Neath weight of all the good things known Our little table will not groan. No, not the very least; Our little home will not be blest With many a weicome, joyous guest To help us at the feast. Yet, notwithstanding what we lack, We'll not regretfully look back And sigh for better days; But we will fill in every part The spac ious store rooms of our heart With gratitude and praise. We'll count our present blessings o'er, And we shall find they number more Than all our trials do; Our happy, thoughtful hearts shall be Deli?htful guests?right royally They will reward us, too. To seats we once did occupy We'll not look up with wistful eye And covetous unrest; But bending low down our gaze To poorer homes, to sadder ways, Thank God we are so blest. Thank God that though our homo is small, It still...

For all end everything that Rives Our lives so much of pleasure We Offer thanks. Long may we taste Thine overaowiuc: measure. OUR THANKSGIVING. The morning came. It came as other Thanksgiving mornings had come ? with fresh, frolicking winds and sunlight, and blue skies; with merry voices, with cloudless faces and hnppy hearts. I remember just how yellow and murky the sunshine lay on tho floors that morning, and how I thought the wind wailed about the corners of the houso?to me it had no frolic. The children caine in from play while I was at work, all flushed and eager, and happy, jostling and pushing each other good naturedly in the entry. Dinner time came at last and they gathered round the table tfloefuily?just as gleefully, I thought, with a half bitterness, as if they had all been there. "Why, what's this for?" asked Ha...

A WOMAN'S BARGAIN. 1 ou will love nie ? Ali, I know As men love?no better, dear. VYorsbip'.' Yes, a month or so. Tenderness? Perhaps a year. After that, the quiet sense Of possession; careless care, And the calm indifference That all married lovers wear. Blame you, dearest? Not at all.

Yet how strange is Love's deep law! lean look you through and through, Tracing plainly Nature's flaw In the heart she gave to you; Knowing all my heart must stake, All the danger, all the fear, And vet glad, even so, to make This, my losing bargain, dear!

THE BRIDGE. I stood on the bridge at midnight. As the clocks wore striking the hour, And the moon rose o'er the city, Behind the dark church-tower, I saw her bright reflection fin the waters under me, Like a golden goblet falling, And sinking into the sea. And far in the hazy distance Of that lovely night in June, The blaze of the flaming furnace Gleamed redder than the moon. Among the long black rafters The wavering shadows lay, And the current that came from the ocean Seemed to lift and bear them away. As sweeping and eddying through them Rose die belated tide, And streaming into the moonlight The sea-weed floated wide, And like those waters rushing Among the wooden piers, A Hood of thought came o'er me That filled my eyes with tears. IIow often, 0 how often, In the days that had uxine by, I had stood oil that bridge at midnight And gazed on that wave and sky. How often, 0 how often, Had I wished that the ebbing tide Would bear me away on its bosom, O'er the ocean wild and wide I ...
