When the lessons and tasks are all ended
And the school for the day Is dismissed,
And the little ones gather around me
To bid me good-night and be kissed ;
Oh, the little white arms that encircle
My neck In a tender embrace!
Oh, the smiles that are halos ol Heaven,
Shedding sunshine of love on my lace!
And when they are gone. I sit dreaming
Of my childhood, too lovely to Inst ;
Of love that my heart will remember
When it wakes to the pulse of the past,
Ere the world and its wickedness made me
A partner and ol sorrow and sin,
When the glory of God was about me,
And the glory ot gladness within
Oh, my heart grows weak as a woman's
.mil the fountains of feeling will How
When I think of the paths steep and stony,
Where the feet of the dear ones must go ;
Of tiie mountains of sin hanging o'er them,
Of the tempest of Fate blowing wild ;
Oh, there Is nothing on earth half so holy
As the innocent heart of a child!
They are idols of heart and of household ;
Thay are ante's ot God In disguise;
His sun'ight still sleeps in their tresses,
His glory .still gleams in their eyes :
Oh, those tiuauts frdnY home and from
They have made me moie manly and mild,
And 1 know now how Jesns could liken
The kingdom of God to a child.
I ask not a life to the dear ones
All radiant, as others have done,
lint that lite may have.jus.t enough shadow
To temper the glare of the sun :
I would pray God to guard them fiom evil,
But my prayer would bouu't back to myself;
Ah ! a yeraph may pray for a sinner,
But a sinner must pray for himsell.
The twig is so easily btnded,
I have banished the rule of the rod ;
I have taught them the goodness of knowledge,
They have taught me the goodness of God ;
My heart is a dungeon of darkness.
Where 1 shut them from breaking a rule ;
My frown Js sufficient correction ;
My love is the law ot the school.
1 shall leave the old home in the autumn,
To traverse its threshold no more :
Ah ! how 1 shall sigh for the dear ones,
That meet me each morn at the door!
I shall miss and the kisses,
And the gush of their innocent glee,
The group of the green, and the flowers
That are brought every morning to me.
I shall miss them at morn and at even,
Their song in the school and the street
I shall miss the low tne hum of the voices,
And the tramp of theirdelicate feet.
When the lessons and tasks are all ended,
And dentil says, "The school is dismissed !"
May the little ones gather around me,
To bid me good-night and bo kissed.

John Cox's goat has been transported
for wilful destruction of property and other
misdemeanors. As a kid, it was the pet
and companion of all the children in the
West-end and was a welcome guest in most
households. But age and bad associations
of late barred his goatship from his former
walks and youthful relations.
Last Sunday while the family of 4W. II.
Fjtch were at church, his goatship made
his way into the house through the parlor
window and after making way with
and overturning choice flowers and devouring
artificial grasses, a large quantity
of wasdemolished. Becoming
envious of his own reflection he went
through the parlor mirror, and notsatisfied
with the destruction made seeing a country
picture on the wall representing sheep, he
turned his battery upon it and mounting
the piano with a run and jump planted his
horns through the picture. When discovered
by the family he was on the mantel
piece taking distances to the suspended
lamp, the only article in the apartment that

The St. Valentino Masquerade at the

It was a happy nflair and terminated most ,.
successfully. But we must record an incident
not down on the programme.
Two tobacco growers who were camping
with a load to be delivered next day met
the hideous maskers and were told they
were small-pox patients, who were permitted
to meet only at night. They took
fright, left for home and made thirteen
miles in very quick time. A neighbor
who had had the disease came into town
and delivered the tobacco for the boys ancL
returned with the money. As ho was .
aching to have some fun he couldn't leave
without first giving the item to the Bulletin's
Treed by Alligators.
A man who attempted last summer to
cross Cnddo lake, in Texas, ill a skiff containing
a quarter of beef was actually
pursued by a school of alligators. When
about a quarter of a mile from the shore
eight of the monsters,attracted by the fresh
beef, attacked the boat, endeavoring to
upset it. By hard rowing the boatman
reached a cypress tree some distance from
shore, which he seized, and abandoned the -skiff,
He remained in the tree until the- ,
next day, when two fishermen, who werev ,
crossing the lake, heard his cricsand went""
to his assistance. The alligators attacked
the rescuers, but by a dexterous use of
their oars and a shotgun
they succeeded in keeping the enemy at
bay until the unfortunate man, more (lead
than alive, could be gotten out of the tree
and rowed safely to shore.
