being 92 and the younger 87 years.

of powder, but fortunately for the
family this failed to take fire. Young

"The Blind Canary.”—The second
edition of these poems has just been
published. The author, Hugh Farrar
McDermott, of Jersey City, has often,
and very appropriately, too, been
called “The Bard of Nature.” His
poems are full of grand sentiments
that stir the heart, beautiful imagery
that gives pleasure to the mind, a
melodious cadence grateful to the ear,
and, in some of them, pathos that fills
the soul ;with sadness. There is an
originality in all his verses. He never
imitates or strains after effect. There
ilV/lUUlj, U1U 111 11 13 miij^UU^C)
anil none of those mysterious conceits
anil unintelligible sentences that are
affected by the lesser poets. His
poems come from the heart filled with
an unaffected sympathy, nature anil
humanity. Some of McDermott's
poems will live as long as our language
is spoken or written.—Texas Siftings.

New York the other day: “I believe I
