"Do they Miss Me!"
Do the j mUs ine at home? Do they miss me
'Twould be en aseuiance most dear,
To know at this moment some loved one
Was taring I wish he was here!'
To frel that the group at the fire6ule
WJurc thinking of ine as 1 roam!
Oh yet! 'twould be joy byond measure,
To know that they missed me at home.
When twilight approaches the season
That was ever sairod to soup,
Does come one ifieat my name over,
Ann figrt inat 1 tarry so long?
And is il.ere a choid in the music,
That's missed when my voice is away 1
And a chord in each heart that maketh
Eegret at my wearisome stay?
Do they place me a chair at the table,
When evening' home pleasure are nigh,
And limps aie lit in the parlor,
And sturs in the calm azure skr,
And when tie -Good Nights' are repeated,
And each lay him down to sleep,
I'o thev think of the abtrnt and waft me
A whiskered -Good Night' o'er the deep?
Do thev miss meat home! Do they nuts me,
At morning, at noon, and at night'
And lingers one gloomy shade round uVm,
That only my presence can light I
Are joys less invitingly welcomed,
Are. (ilrotuics lr liaitcd than bfor,
Because one is misted from the circle ?
Because 1 am with than no mote ?
Oh yes ! they do miss me ! Kind voicts
Are calling me back as I roam,
And eyes are grown weary with wearing,
And watch but to welcome me home.
Kind freiiuls, ye shall wail no longer ;
I'll hurry me back o'er the seas,
For how con 1 tuny, when followed
By watchnigs and players such as these.
WIT AND SENTIMENT.
How few people see things just ns

I understand your father is dead?'
said a man to a little boy, as he entered

It is certain that either w ise bearing

take diseases, one of another; therefore
Jet men take heed of their company.

The march of civilization is onward

(OT A lawyer once approached a
pretty Quakeress and said she looked
so charming he couldn't help giving
her a kiss.
"Friend," said she, "thee must not

"Oh, by heavens I will!" replied the
barrister.
"Well, friendj as thou hast sworn,
the may do it, but thee must not make
a practice of it."
Fine sense and exalted sense are not
