A BOY'S TIUIUTF.
Prettiest girl I've ever seen
Lovelier than any queen
Girls with curls go walking by.
Dainty, graceful, bold and shy,
But the one that takes my evo
Every girl made into one
Sweetest girl to look upon
Seen 'em short and seeu 'em tall,
Seen 'em big and seen 'em small,
But the finest one of all
Best of all the girls on earth
One that all the rest is worth
Some have beauty, some have grace
Some look nice in silk and lace,
But the one that takes first place
Sweetest singer in the land
She that has the softest hand
Tenderest, gentlest nurse is she,
Full of fun as she can be,
An' the only girl for me
Bet If there's an eugel here
If God has a sweetheart dear.
Take the girls that artists draw.
An' all the girls I ever saw,
The only one without a flaw

When wo uro In trouble we ure

When things go well with us wo tuke
It as a mutter of courso that so It

Some one muy have a better dress,
or a handsomer car, or muy entertain
more elaborately, or Is greater In
popular favor than ourselves. There
is something that does not please us.
Instead of being glad tluU there are
so ninny things to make Us happy
we complain and find fault. Wo let
a "crumpled roseleaf" spoil our Joy
; amidst a wealth of things that should

j Why not sot the mind on the good

that are pretty and of really small
consequence. Cultivate a cheurful
habit of mind, looking for all that Is
good and appreciating the blessings
that luivo fallen to our share.
For every one thoro Is something
to enjoy. The sun at least shines
