I romninkor when wo parted
On that glnriour summer inoni,
llow the pearly tear drop started,—
Tlutiking how the rose and thorn
■ E’er on coith must grow together,
And who seeks and plucks the one,
That he would oi would not slum !
I remember well the sorrow
Wo were doomed at. heart to feel,
Knowing that wl.on came the morrow,
And o’er earth its blush shall steal,
Then we should not see each other,
Nor rejoice in converse sweet, —
But wo each must from another
Some cold, heartless welcome great!
I remember then a vision
r Had wc of a happier day,
When should come life’s joys elysian,
Cheering all its ragged way.
And we little thought that never
Should wo meet, each other more,
In a land where chill winds ever
Poison pleasure's golden store !
But how sail indeed the real,
Like a dread o’orshadowing cloud,
Banishing each dream ideal,
Willi its cold and dreary shroud.
Fur hi ! tliou art gone before mo
To a land unseen, unknown,
And what pangs of grief steal o’er mo
When I feel that Pm alone 1
When I feel that l shall never
See again those soul lit eyes;
That thy voice is hushed forever.

almost completely from the world. He ‘

He asked his father for his mother's
Initial certificate. The father was ex
tremely embarrassed by this appeal; hat
no hands could he published until the buri
al certificate had been lodged at the may

He carried his son, who was trembling
with emotion, into on old tower which
formed psst-t of tho architecture of the

The ehamber on tlio last floor was tho lu

bestowed on his wreck for qo many years

the story that the wife was dead and the
story that sho was crazy, seemed some
thing awkward, which needed explana

down to the distant cfiatcau, and the poor
lunatic was introduced. As soon oh she
saw herself surrounded by witnesses, she
said in a calm tone : “1 am not toad. My

In no particular lias the present genera

they should incur tho calamity of a sun

afraid of cold water, and delicately wiped ‘
their laces with the corner of a towel no

were those among them who boasted that
they had never washed their faces in tlioir 1
