TIlE LITTLE ROBE OF t
In a rosewood cradle a baby,ay;
Its mother was stitch ip; stitching away
On a little robe of white.
One foot on the rocker she hoped to keep
Her frolicsome baby fast asleep,
To finis t her work that night.
In a rosewood coffin the-baby lay;
Its mother had wept the night away
Watching its dying breath.
With it pressed to her bosom she prayed to
Her darling baby from going to sleep r
In the cold, cold arms of death.
In the Savior's arms the baby lay,
From the rosewood coffin far away, C
In the realms of love and light. #
The angels a garment had folded about
Its little form, which will never wear out
A seamless robe of white.

A DARK DAY.
Hetty Lockwood sat at the
open window-a big basket of un- t
darned stockings by her side, a Ii
new copy of a Ladies' Magazine sl
on the table close by, while within
reach a bright butterfly hovered d
xbout a newly opened honeysuckle Si
rowing against the window. The f.
spring breeze breathed balmily in
Jo the apartment, filling her senses la
with a delicious dreaminess, and
er eyes wandered wistfully out
eyond the shaded village street P
be green fields and burning wil- M
ows bordering the sparkling tl
-iver. On a morning such as this cc
vho could endure to stay in
loors ? Who could endure to sit
uietly down and darn stockings?
A girlish voice aroused Hetty. la
looking from the window, she to
aw Susie Lake leaning on the be
ront garden gate. h<

vith me down to Aunt Ellen's. t;

A vivid blush dyed Hletty's fair a

a shawl, seated herself at the
window and looked listlessly out.
A few people were passing. She
hardly noticed them, until she
suddenly met a pair of brown
eyes; and she drew back with
burning cheeks and a beating
heart as Walter Hayes passed.
How handsome he looked! and
as her mother had observed, how

I took a little more lemon juice.
I kept my pulse at from sixty to

then bid good-bye to lemon juice

look upon it as a specific of as

give it a fair trial and report the
result to me.

INToxICATroN AND PROFANITY.
-it is no longer 'good form' in
society to be seen intoxicated ;it
is as vulgar as profanity, and the
society of gentlemen in England
is day by day freeing itself from

believe, dying out, in the refine
mnent of the age just as the indul
gence in profane swearing it. It
is not so long ago that men used
to swear in the presence of ladies,
nor is it an age that even ladies
could rip out a round oath on oc
