The men among the barley
Are pinging as they reap,
While up the planting cornfield
The dusky shaduwp creep.
And the msbling scarlet poppies
Talk of sleep!
The sun is swathed ia purple
A* he slowly ainks to rest.
But he leaves a g<»ldra gladness
In the rosy gleaming West—
Every littie bird is "ingiug
In her tient.
The dew on the daisies
As they elose their eoral lips
, In the field beyond the hedge-row
Bed with wealth ot glossy hip*—
All the grass blade* dally diasu<>tida
On their tip*.
Far across the dim horiton
Bolls a veil of toft, blue mist.
All the roof* down in the valley
By the last warm sunbeam* ki**ed,
dl'tf—til! the pink clouds change to
Amethyst!
High up, beyond the houses,
Just above the village spire
Trembles forth the star of evening
Like a Spark -of pure, white fire—
And the reu|»e», reaping, singing,
Sm»n will tire.
Oh music of the phadows!
Sweet music of the light!
*Tis the folding of the sunshine
Neath the mystic pall of night.
Dear angels stand around u*

Hiere are a great mi tuber of babies in

When very Htnall, they arc called infant*,

tine Sometime* turpentine rise* to their
heads, and they behave in a most outrage
on* manner, i once saw- an iniant who
had drank too much turpentine hitting on
i pillow on the ground, veiling ul a tespec
table looking oM Judy, the infant'* grand
hunt, who had a lot ol money in the fund*.
Whenever ulie pointed her finger at the
infant, it yelled louder than ever, and trie l
to bite. The grand aunt left the house, *ud
~-*uied all her money ori an institution lor
elderly unmarried women.

very backward state indeed they do not

Bahiea do not dill'er much iu temper,

the size of a pillow, and covetous.
I once saw a baby with a cork screw, a
