fti.5 §tf Satnektowi Sty*' E. H. & C. II. FOSTER, Publisher*, JAMESTOWN. What is Animal Magnetism I had at one time a fine flock of white turkeys, which were always shy, though much petted by the family because of their great beauty. There was a covered gallery between the dinning-room and the kitchen, with broad folding-doors afreach end, in which we were in the h&bbit of sitting to read, sew, as women will, and where was a cradle for the baby. Our turkeys would sometimes stalk rapidly through this gallery as a sort of short cut on their way to the poultry yard. On'j day I was sitting here, the baby in the cradle asleep, when in strutted a tali hen-turkey, and instead of hurrying through as was the habit, she stopped in front of the cradle, stretched out her long neck and began a sort of guttural cry, and stcod motionless. Preseutly another and another entered, and were each trans­ fixed in the same way. I arose and ap­ proached them, but not one stirred aside, as was their...

A Fall-Opening: Tragedy. Before a brilliant window full A wretched father stood, And gazed at silks, and lace, and tulle, In tierce, despairing mood, And beat his breast and muttered, "fool!" And shook his fist quite rude. For there, within that gorgeous store, He saw Wis daughters three, Before a counter running o'er With heaped-up iineree, Keeping the clerks —perhaps a score, As busy as could be. That father smiled a fiendish grip, Then turned and lied away. Back home again he ne'er has been—, Those bills he didn't pay: And his three daughters now take in Plain sewing by the day. THE GHOST AT HOLLY LODGE. "The old lady has taken Holly lodge for three years." A low whistle escaped from the lips of a somewhat "swell" specimen of the clerk variety at this announcement.

•r JJL 12 I The crowded Streets. WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT. Let me move slowly through the street, Filled with an ever shifting train, Amid the sounds of steps that beat The murmuring walKs like autumn rain. Ilow fast the flitting figures come! The mild, the fierce, the stony face— Some bright with thoughtless smiles, and some Where secret tears have left their trace. They pass to toil, to strife, to rest To balls in which the feast is spread To chambers where the funeral guest In silence sits beside the bed. And some to happy homes repair, Where children pressing cheek to cheek, With mute caresses shall declare The tenderness they cannot speak, And some who walk in calmness here, Shall shudder as they reach the door Where one who made their dwelling dear, Its flower, its light, is seen no more. Youth, with pale cheek and tender frame, And dreams of irreatness in thine eye, Go'st thou to build aD early name, Or early in the task to die? Keen son of trade, with eager brow, Who is now flu...
