Through groves tnd uie..ds,o'er grass and heather, With littlo playmates, to and fro, We wandered hand in hand together; Hut that was sixty years ago. Yon grew a lovely roseate maiden, And still our early love was strong j Still with no care our davs woro laden, They glided joyously s( ng ; And did I hue yon, very dearly How dearly, words want power to show i I thought your heart was touched as nearly j Hut that" was titty years ago. Then other lovers came around you, Your beauty grew from year to year, And many a 'splendid circle found you The ceiiter of its glittering sphere. I saw you then, first vows forsaking, On rank and wealth your band bestow j Oh, then I thought my heart was breaking, Hut that was forty years ago. And I lived on to wed another; No cause she pave me to repine: And when I learned you were a mother, 1 did not wish the children initio. My own young Hock In fair progression, liol': up a pleasant Christinas row ; Mv joy iu them was past expression ; 'But that was thirty years ugo.

In our old fields of childish pleasure, Where now. as thon. tho cowslips blow, She tills her basket's ample measure ; Aul that is not ten years ago. Hut though first love's impassioned blindness Has passed away in colder light, still have thought of you with kindness, And shall do until our last good night.

(From the Cincinnati Gazette.) of 1 to in Tho suiontifio world, for tho a-.iUe of tech nicalitioH, p;ives vuriou nbstniae- tliuories concoi iiing tho formation of snow ; hut tlio generally accepted conclusion is. that biiow is formed, in tlio middle region of air, of vapor, rnina J from bodiea of water by I he action of tho buii, or else by BiibtcrraneoiiH fires, it parts enntftipatod, its upcc'iRc grav. iiy increased, and thus relumed to the oartli in the b.rin ol little white villi, or flakes. The Htiow which reaches tho earth may propel ly ho ascribed to t'io atmosphere, I ihroujjli which it pnsBes. If the tempera ture a low hundred foot above the ground is intoiiHely cold we liavo hail ; if, not so coM, we have snow. If inodorttto, tho con gctiLng process dissolves into rain. Place a Minall quantity of snow under a powerful microscope and the s:uall particles will bo found to have many lorms. Loi-Uo, Mitchell, and others, attribute this to t loctiicul ac tion. Snow is simply in t it ice ; its appar ent lightness is owing to the ercat bui laco it presnnts tor its real weight 5 mis m me same with gold j if you take a small piece ot this precious metal, it will appear quite htavy, but havo the gold beater mako it into foil, and it will scein to have lost its weight, although nearly as heavy as before tho tkilU'ul artisan by his manipulations changed its form. Various virtues are ascribed to, (ho U1J Crone's Chickens."

The latter idea he derived from tlio fact, that the Alpine and other pooplo who live in the mountains where snow is almost perpetual, are noiuu for longevity. In Norway, during the winter, the inhabitants drink snow-water exclusively J and persons who have been bewildered and lost iu the snow, have sua lained life for ten days without any other food than snow, which proves that it has n.mm nutritious iironerties.

Bui beforo they are worn iu the wet, the soles should be hi Id Ihe lire until wi ll warmed; then warm kouio tar and apply it with n swab to tho bottom of the shoe, but nut hot enough to bum the leather, then let il be well diied iu before the lire. This will never work out whilo wai niing the teet ; but this tar should be applied the first of inch month until May, if tho boots are worn much in the wet. This tar ouctratos the sole to the eighth of nn inch, and renders it almost as raid ns horn. Urease of anv kind will soften the leather and make il porous. Without this lar npi liga tion, the fust wetting oT the soles will coo trait thoni, nnd make them fit not so well, sometimes making them loo small nlto gether.

VARNISH FOR SHOES. It is a bad plan to greaso the upper leather of alines lor the porposo of keeping them soft : it rots ths b ather and udmits dampness more roadily. It is bettor to make a vai iiinh thus : Put halt a pound of gum sholhro, broken up in small pieces, in a quart bottle or jug cover it with alcohol, cork it tight; nnd pu it on a shelf iu a warm pl.ico ; shake it wi 1 several times a day, tin 11 add a piece ol gum camphor as large as nn ben's egg ; shake it well, ami 111 a lew hours tl.nke 11 again nnd add one ounce of lamp-black ; il the alcohol is good, il will 1 0 dihsolved in three days ; limn shake and us . If it gets too thick add tdcoh.d pour out two or three toaspooiisful it. a saucer, ui d apply it with a small paint-brush, It the materials are all good, it Will dry in about livo minute and will bo removed only I y wearing- if off. giving h gloss ahiinft equal to patent loiilhei . Tho advantage of this preparation above others is, that it does not strike into the leather nnd nmke it I'.ard, hut remains on the surface, and vet excludes the water al most perfectly. This same preparation is admirable for harness, nud does not soil when touched us lamp-black mixtures do. COLD FEET WHILE TRAVELING. If boots are treated as above, and just bo- fine goinir out of doors Ihe stockings are well dried before tho fire, the feet will feel comfortably warm fur Several hours; it is the moisture or steam uliout ttvo leet winch often makes them feel cold by the out door uir condensing them. No one Should travel in it inteiwith tight fitting shoes) they ar- eut tho circulation : this imluees cohluess, causiiut a irenerul foelinrr of discomfort nil over Ihu body, even making the mind fret ful ami irritable. A woolen stocking will alone keop the foot warmer than the same slocking anil a pair ol litfht linota Desules. II a person lias a uooil circulation, me leei will get warm ot memseivus 11 ine iigni boots are removed. Nono can go to bed with cold leet without doing themselves a noKtive mini v : and it in always liest in winter time, even il mo loet cio not leei colli, tit lieil-tuno 10 nraw ou 1110 siocKiugs and hold Ihe foot to tho fire or stove, rub bincr them meanwhile with the hand, until they aro perfectly dry and comfortably warm iu every part j it is a pleasant opera tiou of ilseif and ought not to be dispensed with for a single night from October to May ; il is one of Ihe best annodyncs ; it allow b a person lo fall atloep iu livo min utes, who, with coM teet, would nave re niaiued awake for hull an hour or more, und oven then the sleep will bo very uiiiufresh- ing aud dreamy. BURNING FEET. If the Boles ure hot and dry at bod-tirne rub patiently under each one of them, with the hand, half a teaspoonful of sweet oil night after night, until tho difficulty is re moved. Sotllo persons always have cold foct on getting into bed 5 a robust person may rem edy this in time by dipping bom ici ni a tni.e in cold wafer jnstileip euongu 10 cover the toes; let mcui remain 111 uuiu thirty are counted, wipe dry, bold to the lire, and jump into bed. V ( elilo persons ami invalids stumm pur sue a different course. But both feet 111 hot water half 1-- deep; add hot water from time to I'm-) for rit:een minutes, so that Ihe water shall bo hotter when they are taken out than when they are put in, then dip lliein in cold ater as before , while you count ten. wipe warm und get into bed. As cold fuel induces a number ol diseases, aggravates others, and delays tho cure ot all, it is worm all the trouble one can tai;e. it thereby, even in the couise ol uicinns, the delightlul. condition can be broiKiil about wherein the feet ure in such a nat ural and h alihfnl stato, thai tho in.iii! is never attracted toward Jheni unpleasantly.

In this way they can be cleaned without scarcely soil itig the fingers at all, and a great dial ul oxtra brushing will lie iiaved. Boots And Shoes for ihe Winter should be larg'o enough to admit of cork (tides, which, if taken out and dried Will, will keep the leet warm all the time, without which con dition no person can possibly have good health, while there are many whose only obstacle to good health is cold feet.
