Theory of Color int Leavos,
The various amnd gorgeous tints which

is the formation of ani acidl, and this acid

assired, dear coz, that my friendship
for you e warm as the material, active
as th ,ger-work, and generous as the I
donation. But 1 consider the prosot d
asl pecaliqrly appropriate ot the ocea
sion of your marrasge. You will remark, u
in the Grdt place, tiat they are two In
dividuals united in one pair, who are to'
walc side by side, guarding against cold I
ness4, and giving confort as long as they
last. The thread of- their texture " is
inixed ; and so, ias, is the thread of life.
In tiese, however, the whiteis made to

confidence that thus it will be with tlec
color of your e:istence. No black is
used, -forT bIelievo you will be wholl y

and jealonsy. The darkest color is blue,
which is excellent who we do not ulko

Other appropriite thoughts riso in

Tlho most Idifferent subjects, when
viewed by the mind in a suitable frame,

saith the po')t:
"The iron dogm, tho fuel and tongo,

The firewood, ashes~and stuoke,
Do all to righteousness provoke."'
But to the subject. You will per
ceive that the lops of those stockings
(by which suppose courtship to be rep
resented) are seamed, and by mieaus of
soaming are drawin into a snarl, bit af.

end and final -towing off. By this I
wish to congratulate you that you ire

como to plain reality. Again, as the
whole of-thes comely stockings were
not made at once, but by the addition
-of on'o stitch after another, put in
with skill and discretion, until the wholo
presents the fair and equal pieco of work
which you see, so like does not consist

Thus every stitch of life made right,

too large or too small, too tight or too
