Siffns of affection
And fond recollection
Of joys that outrival mere mortal esteem;
Each withered blossom
That drooped on her bosom
An Eden blown harbinger born of o dream!
Words cannot measura
How dearly I treasure
Thosa tender and delicate tokens that prove
The truth and eteadf astness
And undefined vastness
Of constant devotion end undying lorel
Heaven knows the story;
Tho uarcvealed glory
Of memories sacred their odors Impart,
In kisses I'll steep them,
And cherish and keep them

A Bird's Drinking Fountain.
In June of 1SS9 1 had occasion to be out a
milo or thereabout from the town of Kent
ville, and was for some time detained in a
strip of clearing about forty rods wide. Whils
there I noticed woodpeckers continually cross
ing this clearing from ono block of woods tc
the other. I thought nothing of it at first, as
these birds aro very common here, but after
a constant stream of them had been going and
coming for some time I determined to go
across a small field to a point of hard woods,
where they all seemed to be going, and see il
I could find tho cause. I discovered that th
woodpeckers were Hying to and from the top
of a living white birch tree. About forty
five feet up this tree the woodpeckers had
thickly perforated tho bark a spaco of about
ten inches around tho trunk, causing tho sap
to flow freely. I soon discovered that thii
was a drinking fountain, not only for the
birds that had so diligently worked to bor
these holes, but it seemed that all the small
birds in the neighborhood were coming hert
to get a share of the sweet sap that was con
tinually flowing from the wounded treo,
