one day last week. Four of them
are living and doing well.

Little Things. Little martin-boxes
of homes are general the
most happy and cosy. Little vil
lages are nearer to being atoms of
a shattered paradise than any
thing we know of. Little fortu
nes bring-the most content, and
little hopes the least disappoint
ment. Little words are the sweet
est to. hear. Little charities fly
further, and stay the longest on
the wing. Little lakes are "the
stillest,- little hearts- the fullest,
and little farms the best tilled.
Little books are the most read,
and little songs the most loved.

poet who sounds his barbaric
yawp over the roofs of the world,
but she has her Reavis. She also
has her McKee, and she has him.
