I marked the Spring as she passed along With her eye of light and lip of song; While she stole in peace o'er the green earth's breast, While the streams sprang forth from their icy rest. The buds bent low in the breezes' sigh And their (breath went forth in the scented sky; Where fields looked fresh in their sweet repose And the young dews slept on the new-born rose. I looked upon Summer the golden sun Poured joy over all that he looked upon His glance was cast like a gift abroad. Like the boundless smile of a perfect God; The stream bhown glad in its magic ray The fleecy clouds o'er the green hills lay; Over rich, dark woodlands their shadows went, As they floated in light through the firmament. The scene was changed it was Autumn's hour A frost had discolored the Summer bower ; The blast wailed sad midst the cankered leaves, The reaper stood musing by ered sheaves; The meadow pomp of the rainbow woods Was stirred by the sound of the rising floods; THE HONOLULU TIMES. And I knew by the clouds by the wild wind's strain, That Winter drew near with his storms again. I stood by the ocean its waters rolled In their changeful beauty of sapphire and gold; And Day looked clown with its radiant smiles, Where the blue waves dance round a thousand isles; The ships went forth on the trackless seas, Their white wings played on the joyous breeze; The prows rushed on midst the parting foam, While the wanderer was rapt in a dream of home. I stood where the deepening tempest passed, The strong trees groaned in the sounding blast; The murmuring deep with its wrecks rolled on, The clouds o'er shadowed the mighty sun; The low reeds bent by the streamlet's side, And hills to the thunder peals replied; The lightning burst forth on its fearful way, While the heavens were lit with its red array. And hath men the power with his pride and skill To arouse all Nature with storms at will? I lath he power to color the Summer cloud To allay the tempest when hills are bowed? Can he waken the Spring with her fqstal wreath, Can the sun grow dim by his lightest breath? Will he come again when Death's vale is trod? Who then shall dare murmur. "There is no God?"

(By the Bishop of Tennessee.) At the beginning of the twentieth century, when our Nation is face to face with new and untried problems, which, we believe, are going to be solved, not only rightly, but righteously; and which, in the very struggle for that solution, are going to carry us, as a people, into great and splendid and, we hope, reverent possession and use of power there are two things for which, above all others, Christians ought to work and pray. Those two things arc (1) the union of the American people, North, South, East and West in mind and heart without friction of sectional distrust or jealousy of mere political traditions ; and (2) the consecration of this union in the Name and faith of Tcsus Christ.
