FOR THE CHILDREN.
The cold mow rests upon tbo earth,
King Winter rel;;ns supreme,
And pencils pictures on the pane. ,
While children sweetly deam.
ThenhlnlugcrysUls brightly glow
I'pon the lofty trues,
And fl;ishllku Jowuls as tlicy swing
Buneuth the morning broezo.
No path leads straightway to tbe wood,
Through all the field of Ice;
And muster squirrel duella alone,
Left to his ow n device.
He cuddles In a tiny heap,
f.ufe from the cold und storm,
Within bis burrow, where he keeps
AH happy, suug'und ivarm.
He cracks the nuts which he has stored
A hen autumn iltiya were fine,
And takes a peep from out tlio wood
When golden sunbeams shine.
He knows that God is evjr good,
And keeps him free from harm,
And that the winter bean for him '
No cause lor dread alarm. .
Oh, Httlo children, when the stow
'Ltesclose aboat your oor, v,
Aud you who, like the squirrel amal, '
Are blessed with ample store,
Remember there are little ones
Not very far away,
Who shiver through the wintry wiads
Through all the chilly day.
Will you nottako from out your store
Some little warmth and food,
And give to those who suffer so,
In need of something good?
For God who reigns In heaven above
Will bless yon night and day
When you remember those In woe
And wipe the r tears away. I.

Any one walking through the streets
of Iondon lately can hardly fail to have
been struck with tho number of people
of both sexes who havo adopted, tha
military stylo of mourning, and wear it
band of black cloth round the arm,
just above the elbow, in place of tha
conventional black broadcloth hatband
for men and heavy swathings of crapo
ii wonuin. Prnhnlilv no rount.rv In
the world is more wedded to old-fash
ioned observances than this, and I haw
