QUERY.
Whit know we, of the inner life,
Of the souls that move around us
The innr life that forms two lives.
With the humau ties that bind us;
Though often a word, a look, a tone,
May seem to express true feeling,
Still ofteaer leaviuga vai-uo distrust.
Or suspicion of unfair deiling.
'Actions speak louder than words' 'iisaaid,
By whom, though, I do not remember,
Many a one, to be judged by this, !
Are cold hearted aa bleak December:
And those whose actions in every day life,
Aro strikingly ki .d and loving,
Carelessly live, and carelessly die,
Their want of affection proving
For they that cherish deepest love,
Will aro to-day audio-morrow,
I Seeking in every way to shield,
Tiio loved from cure and sorrow:
Knowing that life can never be given,
When onco it is taken away,
And they as truly murderers are,
That only byinches slay .,
Then it appears a most serious thing,
To know how to manage each other,
Mother and maiden, sister and wife,
Faiher. and son. and brother.
I Husbands and wives, living two lives,
Nor ever the problem solving,
Though science mount higher than vaulted
skies
Among the planets revolving.

I THEY DIDN'T THINK.
. Once a trap was baited with & piece of 1
cheese ;
It tickled so a little mouse, it almost made
him sneeze ;
An old rat said, 'There's danger ; be care
ful where you go !'
'Nonsense!' said the other, 'I do not think
you know ; '
So he walked in boldly nobody in night;
First he took a nibble, then he took a bite;
Close the trap together snapped as quick
as wink,
Catching 'mousey' fast there, 'cause he
didn't think.
Once a little turkey, fond of her own way,
Wouldn't ask the old ones where to go or
strav.
She oaid, 'I'm not a baby ; here I am, half
grown j
Surely I am big encugh to ru n about alone !'
Off she went, but Mr, Fox, hiding, saw her
pass ;
. Soon, like snow, her feathers covered all
the grass.
So she was a supper ere the sun did sink,
'Cause she was so head-strong that she
wouldn't think 1
m Now, then, dearest child ren, you who read
Bi this soi g,
BB Don't you see what trouble c mes of
thinking wrong?
And can't ywu take a warning from their
dreadful fatft,
Who began their thinking when it was too
late?
Don't tbink there's always safety where
no danger shows ;
Don't suppose you know more than any
body knows ;
But when you're warued of ruin, pause
upon the briuk ;
And don't go ovr headlong, 'cause you
didn't thiuk. Selected
MAKE HOME BEAUTIFUL.
Man may be refitted and happy
without a garden ; he miy even have
a hooie of taste, we suppose, without
a tree, shrub or flower j yet, when
the Groat or made 'Heaven and Earth'
and wished to prepare a proper home
for man, whom He made in His own
image, He planted a garden and plared
this noblest specimen of creative
power in it to dress it, and to keep it.
We could have pleasant homes and
beautiful gardens now, if we wished,
as it costs but little io ornament and
beautify ihem with ornamental trees,
shrubs and flowers as well as fruit
trees and vines,
Vick's Floral Guide says: ''Few
things pleased us more when in Europe
than the skill exhibited in giving an
air of rural taste to small city lots,
many of them so very small that few
Americans would be willing to attempt
ornamental gardening on so diminutive
a scale. And yet, if we can make a
parlor or sitting-room bi autilul in
winter with a few plants, why can we
not make a small paradise of a twenty-foot-square
'front yard.' Many of the
yards we refer to were"not more than
twenty feet in width, and yet remark
able as specimens of taste. Some of
i these little gardens were attached to
m,,, Mtt,. -imw?i i . -----
bouses in rows ; others belonged to
what are known as semi-detached cot- tt
tages that is. two onlj joined togeth-
er. JH
We give a specimen of one of these
little front gardens, or, as they are
sometimes called, entrance courts
Thf; lots are sometimes so narrow that
the raised bed is made several feet
from the centre o allow of free pas- B
sage on one side. The English peo B
pie seem to love seclusion, and so the H
front yard is usually bounded by a B
wall ou every side, as we have, in B
a measure, shown in the engraving, B
and would be fearfully unsightly but B
for the fact that these walls are orna- B
mented. and so'uetimes concealed with fl
I climbers and other beautiful plants S
The ornamental border that surrounds B
the central bed is ucualiy rich, and - fl
made to resemble stone. The border
for the beds on the sides ia generally
common burnt clay tiles of neat de- , jB
signs. The smnll engraving on last V A TM
page shows a very good pattern. J yfl jl
Sometimes a bold vase is used for the j 1
centre j und we have seen a little rock- j 1
ery occtipy the place, but it is not the
place for a rockeiy. The space not
occupied by beds is covered with flag
ging or gravel."
ft is easy to make your homes beau
tiful and attractive if you are so in
clined, but those who have noinclina- ;
! tion to beautify find it very irksome to 4
do so. Every home should have its , "
neat little flower garden, interspersed i I
with evergreen shrubbery, to atttact j
the children's attention, and they will
enjoy themselves picking and playing ( -
with the flowers and examining the , ;
evergreens. Make home attractive
and, it will promote happiness, - '
