''W'TSfWlrt fflftrs. * 4' There is a wonder in the woods . More sweet than ocean calm ; v , And sonnas more pure than surging floods, lx ,;_r Or organ-sounded psalm. Deep arches stretch as holUy j As winster-aislas by night, When shades in dim ithmensltr ^ Utnn forth the Infinite. And oft when nut a leaf is stirred ÄtttÄg, heard The footsteps of its God. Thca comas a qaiet deep as death, And awful as the prayer Of the last sigh of saintly breath *«* X Upborne bn silent air. Like angels o'crsepulohral urn, öu seem to pray the trees ; We hear our heating hearts, and yearn To hâve repose like these. hi Mitm <0ur <y)lio. r THE BREAD-FRUIT TREE. bit yon ever hear of tt tree bearing ]*lne anti towels and cloth and tinder and bread t Th'erè is just such a wonder. It is found.jgd''dye Pacific Islands, and is ■ oalled the Bread-fruit tree. . It is abont forty-feet in height, or high u in ordinary three-story dwetling house ; its trunk grows to be nearly foot in diameter or thickness, anil branches eotne out straight from the tree, like dosena of out-stretebed arms, long at first, but getting shorter and shorter as they near tho top. These aro furnished ""with beautiful dark-green leaves, nearly two feet long, and deeply gashed at the edges ; while half hidden among them is the fruit, growing like apples on short ■terns, but larger, aud with a thick, tough, yellow rind. This fruit is very like bread, some describe it, like penny-rolls ; and it is in season during eight months of the year, the natives during that time have no other kind of bread. They gath er it while it is green, as soon as it attains its full size, ana bake it, just as it is, in an oven. Scraping off its outer blackened erust, they come to the loaf, which has hard aeed nor stone inside, but is very like pure, white wheaten bread. The only trouble is, they must eat it soon after th^bak ing, because in a few hoars it grows harsh and choky and loses its pleas ant taste. But just think how pleasant it most be to be able, during eight months of the year, to gather one's loaves from the tree all ready for baking ! As for the glue, that is a kind of sticky fluid which oozes from the trunk, and is found very useful for muBy purposes ; the leaves make excellent towels for the few natives who care to wash their hands and frees ; and from the inuer bark a kind of coarse cloth is made which makes capital «vory-day garments. Besides this, the dried blossoms are used for tinder in light ing fires, and the wood of the tree is in great demand for building huts and boats nnd reugh bridges. So you see no part of the bread-fruit treo grows in vain. Perhaps this could be said, in some sense, of every kind of tree—though really there *nm nbt many that accomplish as much as this. ono the or, as M ' 1'hx Ladi's Maid.—T he following de •eriptlon of the dnties of an Kngliwn la dy'* maid, by one of that not-to-be-envied CH**, will no doubt interest onr readers *• te the habits of English fashionable la ^ diet of the period : " \Ve must, above all, be very punctual, for fashionable ladies change their dresses at least five times a -thy during the season.
