TRI-EEKY EITIN. - INNBOR. S ..-APRL 2. 186.ESTABLISHED 1848.
The wild wor[d hastens on its way;
The gray haired century nears its close
Its sorrow deepens day by day;
The summer blush forsakes the rose.
But, darling, while your voice I hear,
And while your dark-brown eyes I see,
Sad months and sunless, seasons drear,
Are all the same, all glad, to me.
Despair can neve- reach me
While your soft haud I hold;
While your eyes love and teach me,
I never shall grow old!
They say that love forsakes the old;
That passion palea an- Ihdes away;
That even love's britht locks of gold
Must lose their charm and change to gray
But, darling, while Sour heart is mine,
And while I feel that you are true,
For me the skies viI1 ever shine
With summer light and tenderest blue.
Yes, let old age deride met
I scorn his mocking tongue,
Dear love with you .beside me,
I am forever youngi
Rachel Ramsay looked very pretty,
indeed, as she .came down the narrow
wooden staircase of the little browia
farm-house, that afternoon, dressed In
a white muslin dress, strewn all ovet
with tiny pink rosebuds, and a fresh
lace frill around her neck, tied with
Ink ribbon, while her pretty feet were

pan, now and then pausing to bru

rolled down her cheeks.

THIN PROPER THING FOIZ A
Correct Dress and Expression of thi
Geutlemen at a Wedding
The fact is that at a wedding, so far
as more dress is concerned, there Is no
.distinction between usher, groom, or
best man, each being clad essentially
alike, although slight and immaterial
variations are admissible. As a rule,
the trousers should not be tod dark,
neither should the cra r

whole party wearing gloves or not, or
buttonhole bouquets or not, just as they
may prefer, except that the groom may
decide that lie and his best man ale*xe
shall carry boutonnicres, in order to
note their superior importance. If the t
entire party should be made to stand I
up* in a row, each animated by the same
sentiment, thF re would be no iais C
whatsoever of distinguishing a groom
from an usher.
The'whole distinction is found In the

groom-his expression is bound to vary c
somewhat according to character and a C
lot of other circumstances, but still it
must fall within certain limits which v
common sense, the universal ruler, t
prescribes. He should not lonk too
