A Ballade of Lonnlud.
In Loversland the skies are bine
Or barred with rosy clouds between.
The flowers are fairer far of hoe
Than ever flow era of earth were wen.
And all day long through meadow* grM
Beside the river, hand in hand.
Walk youths and maidens of gentle mi*s
In Lover aland, in Loversland.
And some there are that lightly strew
With roses all the way serene,
And some that pleasant odors brew
From elder flower and eglantine.
And others still, in dell and dene,
With brows the kindly son has tanned.
Who sow the grain and harvest gleaa
In Loversland. Is Lorersland.
Don Cnpid school* a merry crew
Beneath the beeches' leafy screen
And bida each ardent swain construe
The glanoes from his mistress' en
No harder task than this, I ween.
Was ever there for scholar planned?
To sing and serve his fancy's queaa
In Loversland, in Lovorsland.
Ah, can it be that we have been,
Sweetheart, on that enohanted strand;
That we, too, know what life may me?

An Informal Prayer.
**The proper way for a man to pray,"
Said Deacon Lemuel Keys,
"And the only proper attitude
Is down upon his kneea."
"No; 1 should say the way to pray,"
Baid Bev. Dr. Wise,
-Is standing straight, with outstretched
And rapt and upturned eyes."
"Oh, no, no, not" said Elder Blow.
"Bach posture is too proud. i
A mas should pray with eyes fast oloeei I
And heed oontritely bowed." a
"It seems to me his hands should be !
Austerely clasped in front, I
With both thumbs pointed toward tka

"With both bjt heels a-iUckin up, I
My head a-p latin down, I
An I made a prayer right than ail than
Beat prayer I ever said.
The prayln'aat prayer I ever prayed?
A-cUndin on my head."
She landscape, like the awed faoe of a ahlaf,
Grew oorioualy blurred; a huh of death
fall on the fields, and in the darknesa wild
The zephyr held ita breath.
No wavering glamour work of light and shada
Dappled the shivering surface of the brook.
The frightened ripples in their ambasoade
Of willows thrilled and shook.
The snllen day grew darker, and anoa
Divers flashes of pent anger lit the sky.
With rambling wheels of wrath came rolling oa
* The storm's artillery. /
The cloud put oa ita blackest frown, I
And then, aa with a vengeful cry of pain, 1
The lightr'r.g snatched it, ripped and flung tt *
In raveled shreds of rain, *
While 1, transfigured by some wondrous art
Bowed with the thirsty lilies to the sod, .
My empty soul brimmed over and my heart
Drenched with the love of God.

Hla little head low bowed upon my knee
As sweetly offered he hla baby prayer,
"B ee* papa an my ma an all who need
An make of me a dood boy, 1 am p'ayin.
An if at Are', dear Dod, 'on don't aataeed
Den twy, twy adainl"
I ami led, but on the am lie there also went
-To God another aimple prayer from me,
BeoMted now, with tear drops aadly blanK
For the dear boy wherever he may be:
"If he should stumble In the untried way,
Still plead with thy dear spirit from aloft
Be patient should hla feet be led astray.

Vitality inheres in truth, not in error.
Though accepted error haaalways the strength
of habit and authority,
Though the battle against it mart always be
hard at first,
The tendency of dlaouaaion la to make the
truth steadily clearer.
That error holds Its ground despite long discussion
. Euould prompt its opponents to inqulr
whether their arguments have gone
the roota of popular belief.
Whether this belief does not derive its support
from truths they have not considered.

Once on a lime I knew a man
Who gaid it didu't pay
To advertise the goods be bad
To sell or trade away.
To prove tbat he was off bis base
Aod make him clearly see
/ I gave him half a page of space
And let bim have it free.
It almost scared bim into fits
To see himself displaced
As I displayed him, but be felt
Its influence on his trade.
I kept it up. His business boomed.
The customers swooped down
Upon his store until he bad
The biggest rush in town.
One day J went around to call
And found bim on tbe run, C
With people waiting for their turn
When those ahead were done.
j 11 Well, well!" I cried, in great delight ^
To see things boom that way.

Ado think my plan t-o Dice
That he'd not only praise my wares,
But pay me double price. ?
And did be do it? Listen, please.
I thought that I'd drop dead
When suddenly he turned on me
And vigorously said:
\"Take out that advertisement quick.
Gol dern yer pesky skin!
I'll never get a chance to rest
