Fifty years of winter's gloom, We I lave traveled on together, Through life's joy and through its sorrow joy to-day and grief to-morrow. Fifty years?—how long, my lote : Then your cheeks were like the roses ; Yet lie knows, who rules ala vs. Every year its charm disckMcs. Now upon the brow do clutter Asphodels of fadeless lustre.

Tin the curtain falling rijuni us Seats in licaven the love pat bound us. Washington, ». c., 1871 . [ Sensible Words Akopt Advertising. The New York J&uraU of Commerce of a recent date has an able tpücle on the impor tance of judicious advertising. We make the following extract: j "People who sit nervously in counting houses, or behind their goods, waiting for distorters to take them by storm, and make no cffijrt to let the world know the bargains they| have to offer, will find the season very unpropitious. Many of those who have spent large sums in hiring drummers and paying for other well-known appliances of trade, have effected large stiles but swallowed up too large a share of the re ceipts in such enormous attendant expenses. The best remuneration has been found by those who have returned to more legitimate old-fashioned methods of pushing their busi ness. We say it, not simply because we are interested in this line of expenditure, but as our best advice to all who wish to be enter prising and to secure a large custom, there is nothing now so effective to this end as judi cious advertising. A little advertising might lie like a gentle touch of the whip to poor Dobbins horse, 'a mercy thrown away; but a liberal outlay is almost certain to bring in a large return ; and this will last even beyond the current season. We do not believe that any one who has valuable service or desira ble property to offer, can fail of reaping a vieil harvest by continuous advertising on a large scal e." Tlie Local paper. The New York Times says that you might nearly as well forget your churches, your academics and school houses, as to forget your local paper. It speaks to ten times the audience that your local preacher does, and if it has any ability at all, it is read eagerly each week from beginning to end. It reaches you all, and if it has a lower spirit and less wisdom than a sermon, it has a thousand times better chance at you. Lying as it does, open on ever}' table; in almost every house, you owe it to yourselves to rally liberally to its support, and extract from it as able, as high-toned a character, as you do from any educater in your midst. ït is in no sense beneath your -unless you yourself are be -fo notice and care neath notice and care—for it is your repre sentative. Indeed in its character it is the s ummation of tlie importance, interest and welfare of you all. It is the aggregate of your own consequence, and you cannot ignore it without miserably depreciating yourselves. -A Southwestern editor remarks : "If in married only fourteen ontjis.
