1 dfd not think that I was old,
Albeit in my hair
2 not ced that soroo silver threads
Were scattered here and there.
IThe age in which we live, they say
Makes people prematurely gray.
Though dependent on my glasses,
It gave me no surprise
Sewing nd reading as I do,
Would try most people's eyes
And half our young folks now. you know.
Wear glasses everywhere they go.
Kheumatlc twinges might have been
A hint of age to me
They used to be old folks' complaints,
But doctors all agree
That changes of the weather tell
On young folks nowadays as well.
I Know I'm getting "fussy ways,"
I want ihingb plumb and true
I like my cup of tea at noon,
My qu et corner too
But such thing-, come about I've found.
Where children are no more around.
But I am old. Ti tell you why
A fact 1 ve seen and felt, and one
That holds xindoubted sway.
Yes, grandmother' That used to bo
A name that sounded old to me.
But with such a compensation,
How blessed to be old'
A little grandchild form own,
To love, to kiss, to hold!
A benediction gift fie jrood.

They did and for many a month neither
heard or knew aught more of the would-be
farmer, though Katharine wisely opined,
that since he was quite free to select his
own "locality," it would not be Glastonbury,
or any place near relatives of hers.
They tired of Europe at last, for though
Kate was gay, she was restless, and her
mother was glad enough to improve the
first suggestion to "g home." There they
found a letter waiting

ofLong Acre were emptied ol their splendid

she was quite ready to accept her cousin's
invitation to visit the grounds.

It was a noisy, crowded place and finding
"Exhibition Hall" and the numberless tents
uncomfortable, she wanderer! off towards
the rear of the grounds, and found herself
among rows of frame cattle-sheds, where
were her cousin's "quarters." An attendant
brought her a camp-chair, and placed her
comfortably, where she was glad to rest and
watch the midday milkrng. Now she was
here, she wondered about "Susan Nipper,"
and wished she could see that fateful animal
just once, herself unseen. "Where is the

But he was not, and she ventured to ap

CARVING IN STONE.
The Utility of Doing I After I I in Posi
tion in Buildings.
A great deal of the ornamenlal htonp
work which has been done in. some of
our be- buildings in recent years lia
been cut after tho stone was in position.
This is common indeed in large cities.
Within a short time this process was
rare. We can remember, in 1873, that
in Boston the practice was only "then
coming into general use. It was intro
duced by a number of architects who
had studied abroad. At that time in a
number of cases it was more of a fad
than a necessity, as considerable stone
cutting was done in the building which
might better have been done elsewhere.
But as the general character of the de
sign changed, work of this kind be
came more rational though in some
cases, as at the present time, it wa
carried to an unwarrantable extent.
The practice of stone-carving was
probably developed most fully in
France, where an extended use is mads
of the soft Caen sto-\e. There the
mouldings, as well as tho more orna
mental carved and decorated portions,
are worked out on the bnilding. It ia
quite absurd to do this to its fullest ex
tent in the case of granite, hard lime
stone, and even brown sandstone, a9
was done to a certain extent in the
East several years ago. Certain carved
and highly decorative portions can
best be done after the building has been
finished otherwise. But a mere mania
for imitating foreign methods without
the exercise of reason is absurd indeed.
Some of the foreign methods of build
ing are better than ours: some of them
are not so good. If we ean only us"e
sense enough to discriminate we Will
be fortunate, indeed. The extremes of
patriotism, or mania for foreign imita
tions are alike unsatisfactory. We re
member a visit to Trinity College at
Hartford, a few years ago. They had
some very beautiful buildingrs after the
designs of Mr. Burges, the English
architect. They had this work in all
its beauty, but they had not imported
the English climate they had the same
old New England climate, with English
windows, sashes and grates. We weru
in a number of students' rooms, and
found them cold and miserable. There
is nothing better than American win
dows for the North American climate,
particularly that of the colder portion.
The English windows are suited to the
English people and their climate. In
the matter of stone-carving there is no
need of doing it in the building merely
because somebody'else does it. I may
be done because there is a good reason
for it. Under certain conditions the rea
son may not exist. Mere imitation is 8

Dear Sir:In April, 1885, while thinking ot
tak v.g orders in September 1 suddenly received
notice that my ordination examination would
bo held a fortnight. I had only ten (10) daya
in which to prepare for the Exam. I should
recommend a year's preparation in the case
anyone so utterly unp epared as I was: but your
System had so sti enqtheued my natural tntmory,
that I was able to remember and give the gisi
of any book aft r&admq it once. I therefore
read Lightfoot, Proctor, Harold Browne, Mos*
heim, &c &c, once, and was successful in every
one of the mne papers. Th present Bishop
Edmburg knows the facts. Faithfully yours.
