THIE FADED ROSE.
Wore you borne hither by the wind
That rustles through the bowers,
Or did the 1uneful nigltingalo
That, flutters o'er I ho flowers
Make you, poor rose, his prey?
No, under the dancers' careless feet
Fromi a robe at the ball you tumb>le,
Pale enablemn of those liting flowers
That like you, too, must crumble.
Under their feet. they crush the bid,
Until it dancer stoppin g
Lifts and hurls it through the sash,
Into the garden dropplng
The rose J ust born to-day.
But, t, who glean the bruised ear,
Press to iy heart the vagrant.
And search for sanet.hing 'neath its leaf
Besides its odor fragrant.
How often, there in heart beats' count,
As you rest, on my bosom,
A deathless dreani controls my thouigh ts,
Poor, pale and laded blossom.

father should go lome; but his words
only seemed to strengthen the inat's
obstinacy, and all the boy could do was
to get his father to turn aside from the
high road into a field close by, where
the man threw himself full at lengl i
oi the glass, soiewhal under the shade
of the hedge, and in a few mlinutes lie
was sleeping heavily. whilst the child
sat down at a little distance, with a
strange kind of uinchildisli patience on
his features. to wait until his fiather
should wake. P'oor little Charlie ! lie
knew too well how useless any attempt
on his part would be -to rouse his father
from that sort of sleep.
liather iore than half an hour had
passed in this dreary waiting, and Char

sources of amluseilent fail him. le
had watched a large bee that kept hover
ig over the convolvnlus blossoms inl
the hedge, and, wondered if he had not
nearly tinished his day's work ; had
placed a snail out of harm's way, and
had been tempted to chase a beautiful
1)aiiited butterfly that flitted past him -
but i eegiu at Iat to lose n11 ilierest
in bees and butterflies, for it was now
tea-tiine, and Charlie was growing ter
ribly hiugry. Still he did not think of
(deserting his post, for no one. but the
child himself knew how often he had
kept his tipsy father off the country
road when carts or carriages were coim
ing along, Iior how he had managed to
guide him ill safety over the narrow
bridge that led across the river to their

The leading poliololls plant is that
y's comumnonly known as the poison-vine,
'as poison-oak or poisont-ivy. It is a very
ch graceful, abundant climber, ait som1e

lat seinbles the beautiful Virginia-creoper,
he which is sometimes- blamed for sins not

be confounded. '1'he poison-vine hears
3e its leaves in clusters of threes-the Vir
ginia-creeper in clusters of lives. Witli
its this simple rule in mind one(,- is always
Ih- safe. But the poisol-vine, dreaded as
we it universally is, is not equally poison
pds ous to everybody. Some persons break
out into a rash if even the wind from it
blows upon them; others can go anmong

ne rule, a light person Is instantly alffected
by it, while a dark oneIl may escape 11n
