THE GAZETTE.
FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMB. 28.
OL1) TIMES.
There's a beautiful sod/? ou the slumbrous air
That drifts through the valley of dreams;
It comes from a ciime where the roses were,
Aod a tuoeful heart aud bright browu hair
That waved io the moruing beams.
Soft eyes of azure aod eyes of browo
And snow-white foreheads are there ;
A glimmering Cross aod a glittering Crown,
A thorny bed and a couch ot down,
Lost hopes and leaflets of prayer.
A rosy wreath in a dimpled hand,
A ring and a slighted vow;
Three golden links on a broken band,
A tiny traek on the snow-white saLd,
A tear and a siuless brow.
There's a tincture of grief in the beautiful song
That sobs on the summer air,
And loneliness felt in the festive throng
Sinks down in the soul as it trembles along
From a clime where the roses are.
We heard it first at the dawn of day,
And it mingles with matin chimes;
But years have distanced the beautiful lay,
And its melody fl.iweth far away,
Aud we call it now **01d Times."
An Iowa minister, in discoursing to his au
dience a few Sundays ago, said: "Religion in
the heart, my friends, is like four aces in the
deck?without it no man can hold a certain
hand." To some of his audience his illustra
tion was forcible. In their judgment the "deck"
would be a barren pack without the four aces.
A few, however, "flushed" with indignation,
rose "straight" up, aod "passed" out the door.
