mother.sono. • J\ jy ’ Blee P 1 *he Christmas stars are bright the Christmas stars climb up the vaulted sky; Low bangs the pale moon in the west declining, Bleep, baby, sleep I the Christmas morn is nigh I Hush, baby, hush I for Earth her watch is keeping; Watches and waits she the angels’ song to hear; Listening for the swift rash of their wings down sweeping, Joy and peace proclaiming through the midnight clear. Dream, baby, dream ! the far-off chimes are ringing; Tenderly and solemnly the music soars and swells; With soft reverberation the happy bells are •winging, While each to each responsive the same sweet story tells. Hark, baby, bark ! bear how the choral voices, All jubilantly singing, lake up the glad refrain, &lt;‘Unto yon is born a Saviour !” while heaven and earth rejoices , And all its lofty battlements re-echo with the strain. Wake, baby, wake I for, 10, in floods of glory The Christmas day advances over the bills of morn 1 Wake, baby, wake! and smile to hear ...

A fair »*ai\ 44 Doctor, if you will only keep them out of the grave you can have the whole lot of ’em.”— Puck. Electric lng3cts. Some of the savants are investigating electric insects. General Davis, of the British army, who was a famous insect collector, once picked up a “wheel bug” in the West Indies and received a shock which paralyzed his arm, and. on shaking the insect off, he noticed six red marks on his skin —the impression of its feet. This particular bug is now being studied closely, to discover the peculiaiities of its electric power. Although the scientists seem to have waked up to this fact for the first time, it has- long been an open secret that many insects have this peculiarity. We distinctly remember years ago, making a scientific investigation of the domicil of an aeuleated, hymenopterous insect, of the genus vespa, at a picnic—in fact we sat down on its nest —and the result was an electric shock that did not exactly create paralysis, but caused a number of red mar...

THANKSOIVimi DA 7. Ah I on Thanksgiving Day, when from East and from West. From North and from Bontb come the pilgrim and guest; When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his board The old broken link of affection restored; When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more, And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before, What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye? What calls back the past like the rich pumpkin pie? O, fruit loved of boyhood ! the old days recall h»g, When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling, When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin, Glaring out through the dark with a candle within; When we laughed round the corn heap with hearts all in tune— Our chair the broad pumpkin, our lantern the moon— Telling tales of jthe fairy who traveled like steam In a pumpkin-shell coach, with two rats for her team! Whittier. “SARAIMVAS THERE.” ’ * BT OHAi.-KS BAENABD. “Call your grandmother, child. Tell her I've come home.” The old man drew t...

A Dakota Snow Storm. Neighborly communication after a week’s steady snowing. Hunting the Buffalo. “As we were ascending a hill, keeping S sharp lookout for game, suddenly the taptain bawled out: ‘By George, boys, there’s a buffalo, or I’m a sucker.’ “ ‘Where?’ cried Mel and I at the same time. “ ‘On that hill over there to the right,’ veiled Cap, ‘Dont’t you see him? Why, lie’s as big as a house.’ “ ‘There he was, indeed. And in the haze that perpetually surround these kills he appeared to be forty feet high, «nd to grow bigger every time we looked »t him. Til tell you how we’ll fix him,’ said Cap. ‘We’ll tie the horses here. Then I’ll surround him, and drive him flown that ravine, and you can hide at the mouth, and shoot him when he comes out.’ The plan looked feasible to us, mcl we concealed ourselves near the mo.uth ot the ravine and waited, our hearts in our mouths, for the noble game. The captain had about a mile to go to round him up, and we were getting awfully impatient, whe...

CYPRESS AND MISTLETOE. Within the broad, old-fashioned room The yule log burns with a ruddy glow; The walls are decked with evergreens, And, true to the custom of long ago, From the chandlier, in the antique room. Is pendent a spray of the mistletoe. In and out 'mid the light and shade, Made by the yule log’s flickering glow, Happy youth and blushing maid Kiss, as they pass 'noatb the mistletoe. Sweet is the vintHge of love they quaff, And quaint the humor, and glad th&lt; laugh Of the group, who by the fireside Have gathered to spend the Christmastide All ages blend in the picture therein life’s first notes in the baby’s crow To faces worn by life’s ebb and flow. ’Neath the mistletoe, a year ago, I saw another maiden stand. And I was he, who landing low Kissed her cheek and pressed her hand; But now I know, beneath the snow, She lies at rest witbiu the grave. The winds that blow are moaning low, As ever the fronds Jf the cypress wave, And tho’ the bells of Noel are chiming,...

But what inspires the reflection?” “I was just reading in a paper about a woman who has just married her eighth husband."— Blizzard. The Schoolmaster. —A late Without Words. He Was Just Like ...
