llinn I could tell or he eiiher, for he sunn
forgot a great deal of it. lint they were not
nlwnys learning ; they hnd the merriest gnmea

nctive on hprselmek nt rrieket, nnd nil
gnipea nt hall ; nt prisonera' base, bare and
hounds, follow my lender, nnd moro spots
il.on I can think of; nobody rnuld bent them.
They bad holidays, too, nnd Twelfth eakes,
nml parties where they danced nil night till

that 1 wnnt the timo to reckon them up.
They were oil young, like the handsome hoy,
and, wrrP pecr to be atrulige lo one miullier
jiil their lives through,
Still, ono day, in the mid: of nil these
pleasures, the traveller pl tho boy ns he bnd

went for n little while without seeing any,
Until nt Inst he enmo to n joung mnn. 80,

and presently they camn to ono of the pret
tiest ifirlstha't ever wns seen just like Funny
in thn nnmer there nnd shu bad pyea like
Fnppy, nnd bnir like Fanny, nn.l dimplea
like Fnnny's, and she laughed nnd colored

Well! He win tensed BOliielimea just ns
Homebody used lo bo by Funny ; nnd they

Ho they umne to an avenue Hint wasdnrk

And the traveller nnd he were lull alone to

they cnnie to very nenr tho end of the wood;
so near, that they could see the aunsel hm-

Yet, once more, while ho broke his wny

So, the traveller Bnt ilown by tho side of

BY FRANCES D. GAGE.
Xow, boys, ere you chnoso your Valentine,
Just listen to these few hints ot mine;
Don't pick out the girl with tho li'.y hands
With taper fingers in golden bands;
Nor ono with a check that' Jily white,
Unless the lily mid roso unite
Nor one that rustle tho lilks so gny,
Or thrum the guitar thro' the livelong dny,
While mother, In kitchen, is working away,
No matter bow lustrous her oyo may be
Her lauijb how awect, or her step how free j
Tho' her finger draw from tho sounding key
Tho muic that might an archangel please,
Or paint tho wild bird on the flitting W'ing,
So truo thut you funcy you hear it aing,
Or stitch the old ent in the cushioned rhuir
Till you hear her purr in her lumhor there ;
No matter if in tho dnnco sio whirl
Till you feel your ense ro nil a twirl,
If hc spurn life's duty and earnest enro
As too vulsar a.nd mean tor her to share ;
If folly and fuahion engross her hour
Sho ports, a butterfly, 'inong the (lowers,
lie careful, my boy, hoed these words of mine,
Don't choose such tin one for your Valentine
Hut if she be gontlo and good nnd truo
With a heart a puro a her eye is blue
With a oul unchanging, and strong and warm,
To answer life's unnhino or hido its storm,
If labor and love make her spirit light,
a.nd the roses glow on her cheek moro bright
If tho children love her on tho stroot,
And tho poor all milo when they chance
If her mother blcssc her day by day,
A ho smooth tho care from her path away
If a smilo over tho father' brow still play
As ho tutpn at evo to hrr merry ly i
Then let her rustlo tho silk to Hue,
And tune tho guitar with a grnco divine
I,ct her linger fly o'er tho aounding key,
If they fly tho loved one at homo to plcuse
J,et her paint if slio will, and crutuhot too--She'
all tho better if sho be true;
l.ct her whirl in the dance with a fairy glee,
U in kitchen nnd 'U'k room her tcp is freo ;
She can't bo too beautiful, learned or bright,
If her heart be pure if her heart be right.
If you know such an one, heed word of mine,
Make her, if you can, boys, your Yalpiitino.
