Vben you a pair of bright cyesencct.
That makes your heart in rapture beat;
When one voice .sera, to you more sweet
Than any other voice you know
Go slow, my fricad, go slow !
For brightest crcs have oft bctjhyed.
And sweetest voice of youth ana maid
The very fairest thing; have s4d,
And thereby wrought a deal of woe;
Go slow, my friend, go slow !
When you're convinced you are a poet,
And, wishing all the world to know it.
Call on some editor to show it,
Your verses full of glow and blow.
Go alow, my friend, go slow !
For many a one has done the aaiue,
'And thought tograsp the hand of fume.
And yet ha. never seen hi. nasse
In print. And why waste basket know,
Go slow my friend, g. slow !
When you to greed for money yield.
And long the mifrhty power to wield
That's always found in golden netil.
With senseless p.mp and pride and show,
Go slow, my friend, go slow !
For thousands tempted by the glare
Of wealth, have fallen in the snare
Set for the thief. And now despair,
Rcgtet and shame have broughtthera low;
Go slow, my friend, go slow !
The good old earth is never wrong;
Each of her works take just so long;
Months pass before a happy throng
Of daisies in the meadows grow;
Go slow, my friend, go slow !
And spring give, life to summer's fiow'rs
And summers, sun and summer'! ahow'rs.
Prepare the fruit for autumn', bow'rs.
And autumn frost bringa winter snow;
Go slow, my friend, go slow !

And gentle, motherly Mrs. Burn-
ham knelt down on the rich carpet,
and slipped her pleading arms
round the slender figure before her.
"I have considered, Aunt Helena,"
the girl said, coldly. Yu ask me
what do we know of Jean D'Eaterre ?
And I answer we know he is a gen
tleman. That is the only kuowledga
I value. If you will not consent to
our marriage now, we shall wait for a
year, and then I shall be my own

with a suddeu softening in the proud
voice, "do be my friend in this ! You
have been so kind to me all my life,

For Ianthe Howard stood quite
still nnd motionless, looking before
her with blind, unseeing eyes. She
lifted one hand confusedly to hor head;
all the hot flamo faded from her
"I don't belWe it," she said, slow-,

don't believe it."

How Marbles are Made.
Nearly all marbles are made at
Oberstcin, Germany. Theie are
large agate quarries and mills in that
neighborhood, and the refuse is turn
ed to good account in providing the
small stone balls for experts to
knuckle" with. The 'stone is bro
ken into small cubes by blows of .a
light hammer. The small blocks of
stone are thrown by the the shovelful
into the hopper of a small mill, form
ed ef a bedstone, bavin? its surface
grooved with concentrate furrows;
above this is the "runners," which is
of some hard wood, having a level
face on its lower surface. The upper
block is made to revolve rapidly, wa
ter being delivered upon the grooves
of the bedstone where the marbles
are being rounded. It Lakes about
fifteeu minutes to finish a half bushel
of good marbles.. One 'mill will turn
out 160,000 marbles per week.
