Still sits the school-house by the road, A ragged beggar sunning; Around it still the sumachs grow, And blackberry vines are running. Within, the master’s desk is seen, Deep scarred by raps official; The warping floor, the battered seats, The jack-knife’s carved initial; The charcoal ft cscoes on its wall; Its door’s worn sill, betraying The feet that, creeping slow to school, Went storming out to playing! Long years ago a winter eun Shone over it at setting; Lit up its western window panes, And low eaves’ icy fretting. It touched the tangled golden curls, And brown eyes full of grieving, Of one who still her steps delayed When all the school were leaving, For near her stood the little boy Her childish favor singled; His cap pulled low upon a face Where pride and shame were mingled. Pushing with restless feet the snow To right and left, he lingered;— As restlessly her tiny hands The blue-checked apron fingered. He saw her lift her eyes; he felt The soft hand’s light caressing, And heard the tremble of her voice, As if a fault confessing. “I’m sorry that I spelt the word; I hate to go above you, Because,”—the brown eves lower fell,— “Because, you see, I love you!” Still memory to a gray-haired man That sweet child-face is showing. Dear girl! the grasses on he r grave Have forty years been growing! He lives to learn, in life’s hard school, How few w ho pass above him Lameut their triumph and his loss, Like her,—because they love him. HOW MONKEYS ARE CAl'UHT. From tlie chapter on Menageries, in Olive Logan’s readable volume, “Before the Foot-lights and Behind the Scenes,” we make the following extract: Monkeys are such cunning creatures, that one would suppose them much more difficult to catch than other wild animals, l'itfalls will take a lion, and the famished monarch ot the forest will, after a few days’ starvation, dart into a cage contain ing food, and tints be secured. But how are monkeys caught? The ape family re semble man. Their vices are human. They love liquor and tall. In Danlour and Scunaar the natives make fermented beer, of which the monkeys are passion ately fond. Aware of this” the natives go to the parts of the forests frequented by the monkeys, and set on the ground cal abashes full of the enticing liquor. As soon as a monkey sees ana tastes it, he utters loud cries of joy, that soon attract his comrades. Then an orgie begins, and in a short time the beasts show all degrees of intoxication. Then the negroes appear. The drinkers are too far gone to distrust them, but apparently take them for larger species of their own genius. The negroes take some up, and these immediately be- j gin to weep and cover them with maudlin kisses. When a negro takes one by the \ hand to lead him off, the nearest monkey ! willcling to the one who thus tiuds a sup port, and endeavor to go off also. Anoth er will grasp at him, and so on, till the ne- j gro leads a staggering line of ten or a, dozen tipsy monkeys. When finally i brought to the village they are securely | caged, and gradually sober down; but for two or three days, a gradually dimin ishing supply of liquor is given them, so as to reconcile them by degrees to their state of captivity.

For sale by Clapp & North. Harper & Brothers have reproduced from the press the “Adventures of Caleb Wil liams,” written in 1794 by William Godwin, an author of rare ability and much industry. The author says in his preface to the first edi tion that it was proposed, in the invention of his work, “to comprehend, as far as the pro gressive nature of a single story would allow, a general review of the modes of domestic and unrecorded despotism bv which man be comes the destroyer of man.” The volume is one of exciting interest. Price 37 cents. For sale by Clapp & North.

Harper & Brothers add to their educational works previously published, a ’‘German Course,” adapted to use in colleges, high schools and academies, the author of which is Geo. F. Comfort.
