Why build upon a dreary ground.
With sharp detraction everywhere, ?
And eril mists to cloud around? e

A bird-filled, rosv atmosphere, 1

With twisted turrets to the clouds, <
With azure bastions, cloud-impearled, J
Fkir mantled in aerial nhrouda,
It dominate* a weary world.
And pain and grief are far away.
Am words unkind, and cruel calls.
From day to night. from night to day,
No care can climb my castle walls.
'And when, serene. I enter here.
Yon know, I never lonely move,
I built my eastle for you, dear,
I share my house with you, my lovn!
My choice in these gray days, how wise!
I hold a dream of love?and you.
Look, sweetheart, when those towers rise
Our flattering pennants cleave the blue!

tickets are not, as might be supposed,
printed in large sheets and afterward
cut up. The cardboard is cut Into
tickets first and printed one by one afterward.
The little blank cards are
nut in a nilp in kind of Deroendicular
spout, and the machine slips a bit
of metal underneath the bottom of the
spout and pushes out the lowest ticket
in the pile to be printed and consecutively
numbered. "It is of no use trying
to print a bad ticket," says the attendant.
"The machine finds out an
Imperfect blank In an Instant and flatly

of one of the bits of card and puts
