Do what thou dost with all thy might;
Be thou truel Be thou true!
Let thy love be sincere

Bince our Joys must pass away,
Like the dewdrop or the spray;
Wherefore should our sorrows stay?
Be thou true! le thou true!
Friendshiii's very hard to flud,

But trust not too much to t'ate,
Be tiou truot le thou true!
Like the sununer's fragrant flowers,
Be thou true!
Like the suinniur's coining showers,

Like the mountain looking high,
And the river rolling by
Like the blue and arching sky,
le thou true! Be thou true

Among Paris ltag-Pickers.
Great precautions are being taken by the
sanitary authorities o prevent the cholera
from being introduced into France. The
harbor-master at every port has had in
structions to submit every suspected vessel
to quarantine, and every guarantee has
been given those who are anxious for the
public health. If the cholera can only be
imported, the Parisians have nothing to
appiehend, but if the fell disease is of
spontaneous generation, fostered by bad
drainage and by the odor arising from
fermenting garbage, the hot weather will
soon produce an epidemic calculated to
decimate the densely popula ted quarters of
the city. The smell in the streets at night
is becoming worse and worse, and those
who venture further towards the fortifica
tions on the northern side are halt suffo
cated by the pestilential air they are
compelled to breathe. The lodging-hoises
are to be rigorously visited and disinfected
by order of the Prefect of Police, but
nothing is likely to be done to introduce
proper sanitary measures in the 1ndustrial
quarters, such as thr ltoue de la Revolte,
where ee men employed in the sugar
refineries mingle with the rag-pickers
nuddled together in huts and surrounded
by the rags, bones, etc., which make up
the midnight harvest of the chiff mnier.

No one would ever think that such a
clean, neat establishmeui as this grocery
shop could adjoin the (lark, disin-t-looking
bunette where the rag-picker spends his
ioney in drinking and gambling. The
walls are covered with roughly executed
sketches. There is the portrait of the
"Matelot," or sailor-the Garibaldi of the
rag-pickers. He ha9 been all around the
world in a mau-ot war, and had served in

The 1ilcyoel and the Tiger.
Forty yards, however, 1 thought was
near enough for safety. The tiger was
in the road behind me now; so 1 pulled
myself together and began to quicken
pace. Would he stop, disgusted, after
the first hundred yards, and give up
the chase, or would he stick to it? I
quite hoped he would follow me, and
already pictured in my mind the graphic
description I would write home of my
race with a tiger. Little did I think
what a terrible race it was going to be.
I looked behind me, By Jovel he was
"sticking to It," I could not judge the
distance; but, at any rate, I was no
further from him than when we started.
Now for a spurtl I rode the next half
mile as hard as I could; but, on looking
round, found 1 had not gained a yard.
Who tignz. was on my track, moving with
a long swinging trot, and going quite as
quickly as I was. Fr the first time I
began to feel anxious, and. thought un
easily of ten long miles which separated
me from safety. However, it was no
good thinking now; it was my muscle
and iron steed against the brute. I
could only do my best, and trust in
providence. Now there was no doubt
about the tiger's intention; his blood
was up, and on lie came, occasionally
giving vent to a roar which made the
ground tremble. Another mile had
been traversed, and the tiger was slow
ly but surely closing up. I daahed my
pouch to the ground, hoping it would
stop him for a ew seconds; but he kept
steadily on, and I felt it was then grim
earnest. 1 calculated we must be about
seven miles from camp now, and before
I could ride another four my pursuer, I
knew, must reach me. 0, the agouy of
those mnutes, which seemed to mne like
long hoursl Another mile passed and
then another. I could hear him behind
me now--paed, pad. pad, quicker, louder
and louder. I turned in my saddle for
a moment, and saw thire were not
twenty yards ecpariatting us! How enor
mous the brute looked, and how ter
riblel His huge tongue hung out, and
the only sound lie made was a continual
hoarse growl of rage, while his eyes
seemed to literally hash tire. It was
like some awful nightmare, and, with a
shudder, I bent down over the handles
and flew on. As I now sit quietly in my
chair writing I find it hard to analyze
the ert,wd of memories that went rush
ing through my brain during that fear
fut ride. I saw long forgotten events
in which I had taken part rise up die
tinctly before me, and while every
muscle was racked with my terrible ex
ertion my mind was clear, and my life
seemed to pass before me like one long
panorama. On, on, on; the slightest
slip I knew would be fatal, a sudden jolt,
a screw giving, and I should be hurled
to instant death. Human strength
would not stand miuci more: the pro
longed strain had told upon me, and I
felt it would soon be all over. My
breath came in thick sobs, a mist
gathered before my eyes-I was stop

The WVoning of Montezuma.
