CALLING THE NGELS IN.
We mean to do it. Soino da-, some day,
17c mean to slacken this fevered rash
That is wearing our very souls awa-;
And grant to our loaded hearts a hush
That is only enough to let them hear
Tho footsteps of angels drawing near.
Wo mean to do it. Oh, never dou'it,
When the burden of daytime broil is o'er,
We'll sit and muss while the stars come out,
As the patriarchs sat ac the open door
Of their tents, with a heavenward-gazing
To watch for the angels passing by.
We've seen them afar at high noontide,
When fiercely tho world's hot flashing beat;
Yet never have bidden them turn aside,
And tarry awhilo in converse sweet,
Nor praj'ed them to hallow tho cheer we
To drink of our wine and break our bread.
Wo promise our hearts that when the stress
Of tho life-work reaches tha longed-for
"When the weight that we groan with, hinders
We'll loosen our thoughts to such reposo
As banishes care's distui bing din,
And then we'll call the angels in.
Tho day that wo dreamed of comes at length,
"When, tired of every mocking quest,
And broken in spirit and shorn of strength,
"We drop, indeed, at the door of rest,
And wait and watch as tho day wanes on
But the angels we meant to call aic gone!

IN A MEXICAN SCHOOL HO USE
Unpaged Urcliln-i Shouting 'I hoir T,essons
in Sincins Chorus Tho Small Uoy.
"While tho mules were resting and tho
drivers enjoying their usual siesta, we wan
dered out to view the village, v-hoe low
i oofed and no-roofed casss are nestled at tho
foot of darl: hills. Ifc quaint church as
usual, the prominent feature of tho place
rejoices under a fresh coat of sky-blue plaster
without and much gilding iithin, spread
over lhe mold and ciaeLs of centuries, which
gives it the appearance of a wrinhbd octoge
narian fashionably bewigged. The v.ecdy m
closurc behind that serves as a campo sante,
or graveyard, has rows of grinning 'kulls
ranged all along its adobe all- I pi kod up
one of these w itli the intention of adding it to
my vnncv.hat varied collection of "iccucnlas
ile- lexico," but it crumbled to duit at a
touch and filled the air -with line powder.
Then we strayed into the school house, where
a licvy of ragged urchins were shouting their
logons in ring-song chorus. In .Mexican
schoolchildren never study silently, but all
ta':s are committed to memory by loud lepi
tition, making, as may bo imagined, lhe
vicinity of lhr-e temples of ilincrva by no
means dcsn able pkices of abode. Here the
noise was deafening, and the poor, pale,
shabby-looking old woman who presided
.scenic. I half ck traced, a. no doubt she was.
The dog- aivd 5 -oks w Inch 1 he-e childi en w ere
using had been selected by some local
priests years and yea re before. The girls
wele jil-.o taught needlewoik to the extent
of embroil' 'iing altar cloths for tho village
sanctuary and vestments for the Virgin, wlulo
upon the blackboai d were some lessons in
spelling and arithmetic, which weio given by
thopreccptie 'out of her own head,' as sho
explained to us.
It was immensely hot, vith thotiopie sun
beating upon the roof without a tree to izilv
cept its r.iys, and streaming into tho un cur
tained windows, eerjboly was sleepy, tho
lca"heiv cio5 and tho pupils liied'mably
stupid. A fat centipede was slowly dragging
his Io'ilhsome, greenish-yellow body and hun
dred legs, mii charged w itli poison, along tho
lloor in a coni'r, and I counted moie than a
deven scorpions d-u ting about tho walK; but
nobody minds such trifles as these in ilexico.
I ob-crved that tho l innate cuddliest,"' of tho
small boy seems to be about the same the
w ide w 01 Id over, for a little Mexican urchin,
who had evidently been made to stand up in
tho corner for some misdemeanor, was de

tho wail by the tail, sticking pins into it and
otherwise proing tho dootrina of total ile
