PERHAPS A FAI'NCY. I stood by the .ide of a r'ver, And around me the dark waters rolled, The sands that kirsed 'he bright cry stals Were ti aikling with atoms of vold; The waxes, as they passed on t eir journey. ieemtd t lit d with the spirit of w oe, Yet o.ward they passed to 'he danger That lurk' d in Ihe rapids below. 'I he sands. as each wave departed, Seemed purer than ever before, And seon a bright sight of glory Gleamed hither and ) on Jong the shore. I stood at d gazed at the darkness, Then turned to teýe glittering gold, Then watched the dark waves as they journeyed Swiftly on, on their journey untold. 'I he river, so dark and foreboding, So ful of the spirit of woe, Scems d narrow to grow in the gloaming, As it sped in the rapids below; The banks, as they reached toward each other, Grew bright with a glory untold, And as the last wave departed United their pathways of gold. Every trace of the dark waves had vanished, But faintly the evening breeze Stee.e through the damp c...

AIX AND END. Alone with my soul and the silence, I sit In the twilight sweet, And the past and the future are mingled As daylight and darkness meet. I sit alone in the shadows I wonder, and dre am, and recall, And I ask, with a laith half-faing, What is the end of it a.l ? What is the aim of the struggle ? The end of this strain and strife, The toil and endeavor and longing, That make up the sum of life ! The gain. for a few tweet hours; The loss, for the long, long years; The patience that waits and wearies; The prayers and regrets and tears; The hopes, that in sweet self denial Sank one by one to the past; The desire that died near fulfillment; The dream-and the waking at last! I sit alone in the twilight, And my lips with pain are dumb, But my heart cries out in anguish, 'Jntil an answer come. And at last, as the arms of darkness Fold me close around, It comes as the moonlight cometh. Without stir and without sound: "If thou hast loved, and given Faithfully of thy best, If thou h...

FLOATING FANOIES. Some folks they are so good thomselves, So pious and so holy, They've naught to do but mark and tell Their neighbors' faults and folly. The favorite number--number one. Let Guiteau's epitaph be-"Poor but high strung." Sow good services; sweet remembrances will grow from them. Trust a man to be good, and even if he is not, your trust may make him such. Instead of complaining of the thorns among the roses, we should be thankful there are roses among the thorns. A burglar got into the house of a country editor the other night. After a desperate struggle the editor succeeded in robbing him. A truly good man had rather be deceived than be suspicious, and rather forego his own right than run the venture of doing even a hard thing. A Vermont couple have married, after a courtship of twelve years, during which the bride's father has put seven sets of hinges on the front gate. An eastern exchange advises those young ladies that preserve pieces of their dresses in their albu...

UNGRANTED. Where do they go-the ungranted prayers, The baffled hope, lost love, and wasted yearning: The sweet vain dreams, the patient slighted cares, Cast on the tireless tide that has no turning ? The sleepless nights, the weary, anxious days, The eager joy that blossoms but for blighting, Tmocking gleams that glitter on our ways, To vanish in one moment of delighting ? Are they stored up in some great solemn bank, Where Time hold for Eternity the key ? As the rich hues that in the westward sank, May sleep enshrined beneath the sleeping sea ? Or do they, bleLded in a gracious breath, Pervade the atmosphere .,f common I fe, Softening the terror of the doom of death, Lulling the fret and fever of the strife ? Who knows, who knows? Our darlings from us glide; Imploring clasp and passionate prayer are vain; Oar trust betrayed, missed aim, or shattered pride, The great dumb river sweeps them to the main. And yet, for something every gift is given,, Through age on age, so priest and po...

GOOD-NIGHT. God keep you safe, my little love, All through the night; I Rest close in his encircling arms Until the light. Mfy heart is with you as I kneel to pray. Good night! God keep you in his care alway. Thick shadows creep like silent ghosts About my head; I lose myself in tender dreams, While overhead The moon comes stealing through the window bars, A silver sickle gleaming 'mid the stars. For I, though I am far away, Feel safe and strong To trust you thus, dear love-and yet The night is long- I say with sobbing breath the old fond prayer, Good night, little one. God keep you everywhere. C A Victim of Charity. It was at a church fair, and he had come there at the special request of his "cousin," who was at the head of the flower table.
