B The Village Doctor.
B Along the village streets where maples lean
B Together like old friends ahout the way,
B A faithful pair oft and anon were seen
B He and his nag both growing old and gray.
B What secrets lurked within that old soul's breast,
B Of mother-love, of throb of pains and ills,
B All safely kept beneath that buttoned vest,
B Receptacle of powders and of pills.
B Thrice happy he when some fond mother's eyes
B Giew moist with love unspeakable to And
B Snugged to her breast her babe whose paradise
B Within her soul and bosom were entwined.
B How oft he held the wrist to mark the slow
B Pulsations of the feebly ilut'ring heart,
B While his kind words, soft-murmuring and low,
B Essayed to calm the mourner's pain and smart.
B He was to all a father, brother, friend;
B Their joys were his, their sorrows were his own.
B He sleeps in peace where yonder willows bend
B Above the violets that kiss the stone.
B Horace Seymour Keller in New York Sun.
B The reproduction of the Robert Burns cottage,
B with Stirling Castle, which has been, planned for
B the World's Fair, will cost about $25,000. The
B Burns cottage would be too small for an exhibit
B ot the poet's manuscripts and other relics and
B these will therefore be displayed in the replica of
B the castle.
H My Friends and I.
H Mj little, low room is live flights high,
B And some might think that its walls are bare,
B But sweetest communion my friends and I
B Have often held in the silence there;
IB Noble, exalted, they come to me,
IB Fair as they were in the earth's first bloom,
B Whispering hope for the time to be
H These are my friends in the little, low room .
H Shakespeare of Stratford, Bacon, Carlyle;
H Emerson, dreaming his long, long dream;
H Dickens, with, sighs that are lost in a smile;
Bj Milton unblinded the gods for his theme;
H Goldsmith, weary no more, nor lone:
H Chatterton, safe, though the storm rides high;
H Byron, unto his horitage grown
H Royal companionship here have I.
Bj Bound to my room, and touched by pain,
Bj Hither they come to talk with me
Bj They who have trodden the higher plain, ,
H They who have seen what the angels see.
H Bearing their messages, lo! they come,
H Of all of earth's children, the truly great,
B Whispering, "Peace though the heart be numb."
H These, my friends of the high estate.

Wk Than regal state and golden store,
H Tlio crowd's mad clamor, the cannon's boom.
Wk Shades of the mighty come to me,
H Sit and chat as the hours go by,
H Piophesy things that the soul shall see -
B And so we are happy, my friends and I.

Finance" is a clever article for women. The Mont
Pelee disaster is pictured most vividly in this
