Some Gems From His Pen.
There is a Reaper whose name is Death,
And, with iiis sickle keen,
He reaps the bearded grain at a breadth,
And the flowers that grow between.
I sne the lights oi the village
Gleam through I lie rain and the mist,
And feeling of sadness comes o'er me
That my soul cannot resist
A feellngoi sadness and longing
That is not akin to pain.
And resembles sorrow only
As the mist resembles the rain.
As come the white sails of ships
O'er the ocean's verge ;
As comes the smiles to the lips,
The foam to the surge.
So come to the Poet his songs,
All hitheitward blown
From the misty realm that belongs
To the vast unknown.
Hi. and not his, are the laws
He sings; and their fume
Is his, and not his ; and Nie praise
And the pride ol a name.
For voices pursue him day by day
And haunt him by niaht.
And he listens and must obey
When the angel says: "Write !"
But why, you ask me. should this tale be told
To meii grown old. or who are growing old ?
It is too late ! Ah ! nothing is too late
Till the tired heart shall case to palpitate,
('ato learned Greek at eighty ; Sophocles
Wrote liis graud CEdipus, and Simonides
Bore oil the prize oi verse from his compeers
When each had numbered more than fourscore
And Theoplmistus, at fourscore and ten,
Had but begun his ''Characters of Men."
Chaucer, at Woodstock with the nighingales,
At sixty wrote the 'Canterbury Tales ;'r
Goethe, at Weimar, tolling to the last,
Completed " Faust " when eighty years were
These ar, indeed, exceptions , but they show
How far the gulf stream of our youth may flow
Into the arctic regions of our lives,
When little less than life itself survive?,
For age is opportunity no less
Than youth Itself, though in another dress.
Aud as the evening twilight fades away
The sky is tilled with stars, invisible by day.
I remember the black wharves and the slips,
And the sea-tides tossing free;
And Span with bearded lips,
And the beauty and mystery of the ships,
And the magic of the sea.
And the voice of the wayward song
Is singing and saying still :
"A boy's will is the wind's will,
And the thoughts of youth are -Jong, long
I remember the bulwarks of the shore,
And the fort upon the hill ;
The sunrise gun, with the hollow roar,
The drum beat, repeated o'er and o'er,
And the bugle wild and shrill.
And the music of that old song
Throbs in my memory still ,
"A boy's will is the wind's will,
Aud the thoughts of youth are long, loug
I.iemembe: the sea-light faraway,
How it thundered o'er the tide !
And the dead captains, as they lay
In their graves, o'erlooking the tranquil bay
Wheie they in buttle died
And the sound of that mournful song
Goes through me with a thrill :
"A boy's will is the wind's will.
And the thought of youth aie long, long
EASTER CAEDS AT PHISTER'S.

I A sealskin sacqne costs fiftv per cent.
' more than it did five years ago. Sealskirs
i have not been worn more than fifteen
1 years. Fashion and the discovery of new
methods of preparing and dyeing, or first
the latter and second the former, brought
them into use. The seal fur, as seen here,
is the inner .coat. When on the back of
the seal this fine fur is hid by coarse hairs,
which are removed by a process of paring
down the under side of the skin. The
color of the fur as known to wearers is
artificial. If the government had not
taken measures to protect the seal new
wearers of seal sacques would be few in a
short time. The Shetland seals were once
numerous, but have been exterminated.
The Newfoundland seal is in the market,
but is inferior to the seal of Alaska. The
islands of the iehrinr Sea are the only
ones in the world where seal-catching has
great commercial importance.
From 1751 to 1870 the scientific world
knew nothing in regard to the history of
the seal. The Smithsonian institution did
not possess a perfect skin and skeleton of
the seal, although thousands of men and
millions of dollars have been employed in
capturing, dressing and selling fur seal
skin for the last hundred years. The vast
breeding grounds bordering on the An-
tarctic have been entirely depopulated.
Between the years 1797 and 1821, 1,232,374
seal skins were taken in the Pcibyloy islands:
between 1821 and 1845, 458,502
! skins, and from 1842 to 1861, 372,000 skins.
In the year 186S the number of skins
taken was 342,000. In 1870 only 9,965
were captured. During the last ten years
the catch has been a little less than 100,-000
per vear. The whole number taken
between1790 and 1880 was 3,562,051 skins.
The seal catching is done in June and
July. After that time the fur begins to
"shed" and is worthless. The natives are
paid forty cents a skin for their labor.
"Well," said the laborer in the saw-mill,
as they carried him home, " there is one
consolation; that durnedcorn won'ttrouble
me any more."
Some of the papers want a gospel car
attached to all railroad trains. Just imagine
the interior of such a car with the
train two hours behind time. -
George Washington never told a lie, and
he got" to be president of the republic.
Times have changed, George couldn't be
elected to the legislature it he lived in
"What's the difference, asked the
teacher in arithmetic, " between one yard
and two yards?" A fence," said Tommy
Beals. Then Tommy sat on the rule fourteen
"Johnny," said a mother to her little
boy, "you must not interrupt me when I
am talking with ladies. You must wait
till we stop, and then you can talk."
"But you never stop," replied the boy.
