Then, if fingers stayed together Round the soft morocco leather, In that song; If in singing, I leant nearer To her cheek, to read the clearer, Was it wrong? Was it wrong ? The cheek was blu3& ing Next to mine, and mine was flushing Next her sighs. If I thrilled was it amazing A.t the unexpected raising Of her eyes? •»**** And, I always shall remember, Twas a morning in December, Frosty, bright ; That, in church again together, She was rightly—'spite the weather— Dressed in white.

TUIAL BY JURY. Many stories have been told of Sir WillfaBJ Maulo's humorous satire as a judge, but whether it was always appreciated by hil hearers is doubtful. Probably a certain jury, who had found a man guilty, folt a trifle un easy when they heard the prisoner sentenced by Maulo as follows:—" Prisoner at the bar— Your counsel believes you innocent; the coua> ■el for tho prosecution believes you innocent J I believe yon innooent. But a jury of yoni fellow countrymen, in the eseroise of such intelligence as they possess, which does not appear to be much, has found you guiltyt »nd it remains for me to pass upon you tn« sentence of the law, which is that you be jro prisoned for one day; and as that day war yesterday, you may go about your bus; aesB."

" I haven't tasted ii yet,'" replied thf patron coldly. The waiter said, " All right, sah." and moved to the other side of the table. When the steak had been tried, he ven tured— " Rare enough, sar ?" " It will do." There was another pause,and then the waiter asked— " Potatoes cooked right, sah?" The patron beckoned for him to come nearer. " When I came in here," he said,-" 1 supposed everything would be all right.' " Yes, sah."
