talent and ingenuity of a family, for
years known not only for strength
and value of character, but for
its hospitality and the art and
skill o! cuisine as well as the abun
dance of the larder.
This was one of the pleasures of
the reunion, but greater will be the
memory of the day as it afforded
the sisters, the sons and daughters,
an opportunity to enjoy the pleasure
of the visit home and the scenes of
days gone by, together with loved

Still a Boy.
"Still a boy," we heard one say
To another, half In jest.
Then fun-wrinkles joined In play
With a laugh of merry zest ;
And the jolly frame of him
Shook with bursts of sheerest Joy
As he answered back with vim,
"Well, I'm glad I'm still a boy!"
Still a boy aye, true enough-
Glad, yet gentle pure and kind ;
Molded sure of manly stuff
Kind of boy it's hard to And.
Kind of boy it's good to see
Man-boy, wholesome, simple, true-
Kind of, boy you'd like to be
If the" choice were left to you.
Still a boy how many now
Have forgot the solemn eye
Have forgot the wrinkled brow
Is the boys that once came by ?
Call him back It Is his due ;
Let him come with youth and joy
Back Into the heart of you.
Laughingly, and still a boy.
Still a boy ah, well aday,
Boys ara scarce enough at best.
With the rippliDg roundelay
Let the boy still beyour guest ;
Let him cleave unto your heart
In boy confidence and hold
Still a boy the man apart,
Long, long after he is old.
