Where hlrrh rocks throw,
Through deeps below,
A duplicated golden glow.

Whilo on Vesuvius' misty brim,
With outstretched hands,

And yonder, bluest of the Isles,
Calm Capri waits,
Her sapphire gates
Beguiling to her bright estates.

With dreamful eyes

Among her future oll und wines.

With tipsy calls.

That poets sang, and heroos wrought.

First Cost Not tho Cheapest.
Tho first cost of an article does not
necessarily determine its cheapness.
For instance, a sack of "Clifton" Hour
may cost you a little moro than other
so-called patent Hours, but it will bo
cheaper to you in the end. Whj V Be
cause it will not only make moro bread
to the sack, but tako less lard and soda
