I am glad to sec that some of the coun cillors resented the tone of Mr Stephen's letter. Judging from the report of the Central Board of Health-who describe the sample of the stagnant water for warded lo them as foul and stinkiDg there was nothing half as imaginative in the " stink" as Mr Resident Engi neer Stephen's sense of smell would lead him to believe.

You might as well attempt to shampoo ail elephant With a thimbleful of soapsuds as attempt to do business aud ignore advertising, A constant dropping will wear a rock Keep dropping your advertisements on the public and they will soon melt under it like rock f-ait.

Clear and cool, clear and cool, By laughing shallow and dreaming pool; Cool and clear, cool and clear, By shining shingle end foaming weir; Under the crag where the ouzel sings, Arid the ivied wall where the church-bell rings, UndefiLed for the nndefiled; Play by me, bathe in me, mother and child. Dank and foul, dank and foul, By the smoky town in its murky cowl; Foul and dauk, foul and dauk, By wharf, aud sewer, and slimy bank; Darker and darker, the further I go, Baser and baser the richer I grow; Who dare sport with the sin-detiled ? shrink from me, turn frem me, mother and child. Strong and free, strong and free, The flood gates are open, away to the sea ; Free and strong, free and strong, Cleansing my streams as I hurry along. To the golden sands and the leaping bar, And the taintless tide that awaits ma afar, As Ilose myself in the infinite main, Like a s >ul that has sinn'd and is pardoned again, Undefiled for the undefiled; Play by me...
