A Wife Wanted. I want a wife To cheer my life ; I care not what she lacks of beauty, So I but find That she is kind, And knows and practices her duty. I want a wife Averse to strife — A geptle, unaffected creature; One who can pass A looking glass, ■ Nor stop to glance at every feature. I want a wife With vigor rife, Whose nerves are never in a flutter ; Who will not roam, But stay at home, And brew and bake, and make tho butter. I want a wife Who through her life Was never known to be a flirt; Who'll bring to me A recipe To keep the buttons on a shirt. If such a one Dwells 'neath the sun, And dont mind leaving friends behind her, With the author of this She'll find true bliss By informing him where he may find her. Dew Drops. A girl is a sum when she causes one to sigh-for-her. Wanted—a life-boat that will float on the 1 *sea of troubles. The radical party would heal the wounded Constitution by putting its heel upon it. When have married people passed through the alphabet of love? ...

The Delicious Little Cheat. She said she loved mo, oftentimes She gave me kisses warm and sweet, And I expended scores of rhymes On the delicious little cheat. I called her darling, angel, dove, My bosom's queen; exhausting quite The whole vocabulary of love, And, sure, I thought that all was right. But, when I pressed her to consent, To name the happy bridal day, Her cream to bonnyclaDber went — She laughed, and said it wouldn't pay. For I was poor, and she was worse — For I had truth and constancy— But then the fascinating curse Had more of common sense than I. She wed a millionaire, and now, W T hen age has silvered o'er my head, And brought some wrinkles to my brow, I thank her for the words she said. For had we two joined heart and hand For "better or for w r orse" alway, The worse would have grown worser, and The devil would have been to pay. Mullen Stalles.

The Discontented Mamma. We used to live so eozily When John and I were young, Before our Sal and Jane grew up To teach us what was wrong. They raise a noise if even I dust the parlor now ; The say that I've grown a lady And oughtn't to know how. If I call for pork at dinner They cough and look forlorn : As if I hadn't done it Before these two were born ! If I chat with Kate, the housemaid, There's sure to be some : strife, And oh ! the groans and blushes When I eat peas with my knife. They say our fine new waiter Declares he will not stay If I still behave at the table In that "horrid vulgar way." Once, when Sal gave a party, I asked a friend or two, . But that unlucky moment I' vc since had cause to rue. They buy me handsome dresses And teach me how to walk : They make me hide my wrinkles By filling 'em with chalk. They tell me to be And when I smirk and smile They hold their sides with laughter, And cry: "That's not the style!" Once, at a nabob's party, The people played a game; A...

Sleeping in the Cars. The cars were full of passengers, I can't recall the number, For 1 had just awakened from An unrefreshing slumber— When a lady, who sat facing me, Directly met my eye, But turned away immediately, And smiled —I knew not why. When youthful folks, who strangers are, Are seated face to face, In the silence of a railroad car— A grave and formal place— Their wandering ej-es wiil sometimes meet, By some strange fascination, And they cannot keep their faces straight, Though dying of vexation. Simpletons they doubtless are, Whose mouths are always stretching, But the guileless mirth of maiden's eyes And dimpled cheeks is catching; First she laughed, and then I laughed— I couldn't say what at; Then she looked grave and I looked grave, And then she laughed at that. She endeavored to repress her mirth, But couldn't hold it half in, For, with face concealed behind a book, She almost died a laughing. She pouted when she found her lips Determined on a smile, But 'twas very p...

-Spring is Coming. 11Y A. J. REQUIEn. I know it by the hyacynths Which now begin to blow. And flitting voices strangely sweet And tremulously low. By something purer in the sun, And softer in the air, And holier in the twilight stars, That Spring will soon be here. The almanacs are well enough For gardeners and for cooks— I see the seasons in the sky, And find them by the brooks: I hear them on the breezy hills, And, in the hollows, see Their tok. n-flowers and signs that speak Their messages to me. And thus, I glean from gleaming isles Of sunset in the West; From wavings of untiring wings That will not go to rest; From spells of fragrance spiced afar, And peeping spears of green, And silver bugles m the wind. The advent of a Queen ! 1 know it by the hyacinths Which now begin to blow, That Winter, on his icy bod, Is dead or nearly so. And soon will come, with flaxen curls. Led by the laughing hours, The blue-eyed daughter ofthe Sun, In glorifying showers! Outrages and Insults. The U...
