THE HEART.
Oh I could we read the iunman heairt.
Its strango mysterious depihs explore,
what, tongue could tell or pen impart
The ricics of its hidden lore?
Safe from the wothl's distruetful eye.
What deep and burning feelings play,
Which o'eu stern reason's power dory,
And wear the sands of life away.
Think not, beneathi a smiling brow,
Lo alwnys find a joyousc heart,
For wits bright glow, and reasoin fl'J
Too often hide a. cankuring dirt.
The bird with broised and broken wing,
Oft tries to inonut I he air again,
Among its mat es to gladly sing
its last melodious dying strain.
The tire that lighis i flashing ey,
MayV by s btsining heari Ie fel,
Which in its anguisl yearns to dio,
While yet it scems to pleasures wed.
Oh, (10 not har;lley juilgo the heart.,
T1hough 00141 and vini it. seems to be
Nor rudely seek I-lo veil to part,
That hides its deep4 deep mystery I

Let us for a momentlko aivantage of' the
mysterious power wih which we feel our
selves endowed, by taking a passiug glance
info the hearts of sonic, and a passing look .
at. others who may be within hearing of the
sound as the clock at rikou the hour o' twolve.
First, look at the happy and contented man;
no unruly passions list urb the calu and
