(By Wm. H. Perkins.)
Oh,, time; stay yot a moment, In thy flight,
Nor hasten on tho coming flood of years
Till wo who stand expectant on the shore
Looking with eager eyes to pierce the mists
That shut trom view the sorrow3 and the Joys
That shall bo ours In measure full and deep
May once again clasp hand and vow anew
To keep the fires of friendship ever bright,
To quit U3 worthy of our mentors' love,
To trim our sails, no matter where tho winds,
The ebb and flow of Btrong, rslitless tides
May dash our barks, that when tho cnll fs made '
And wo our homo wnrd nennants holnf ninf
The self-same port may meek whera shines the 'Light,

sailed, well' done, re?t here for nve."
Hnply, there may bo times when, weak and faint,
The rudder from Borne nervelesi hand may Blip;
Oh, weary, heartsick, one' mny sink him down
In sl'imber, while tho fateful, sullen tldo
Shall carry him to unknown, stngnnnt seas
Where black oblivion reign;, 'supremo and, lone.
But bark, a cheer! a shout off courage deep
That rings In lUtlcss cars; nnd firm, strong hands
Shall reach them forth, nnd he who slumbers deep
Shnll wuko to find true friends who know him best
Eager to set him on 'his course onco more
And side by side, guide safely into port.
Oh, friendship! When the singing heart is young A
When deep affection puts her tendrils forth
Renchlng for that which holds and nourishes
And meetq her kind on similar purpose bent,
0,'then It is the plants shall intertwlno ,
And bo ns one nnd no known human pow'r
Shall sever them, but they shall stronger grow;
The wlndB mny blow, their loaves bo scattered far,
Their flowerB fade, their fruit fall to the earth
Tho Btorms of winter strain their twined nrms-' '.
Yet staunch they stand, for In their Inmost hearts '
They know the qulck'nlng rnin nnd kindly sun
Shall come again, and they shall blossom forth '
BlesBlng tho pregnant earth wlht bounty free.
O, this friendship, Bncred, mystic word
That binds our hearts together by Its spell.
Comrades of mine, you of the storner sex,
Whoso mcttlo oft wns tried In school nnd field,
Gird well. yourselves agnlnst the coming dny
When we shall wrest from fnto bur lawful due.
Full well I know your courage deep nnd strong,
Full well I know tho world will better be
Thnt you have lived and striven through your day
And earned from tlmo its meed of honest praise.
And you of fairer mould, what,.fthall I cay
To you, who merit all the wraith of lovo
That shall bo yoprs so lonR'.ns lifo shall last.
Yours was the quiet, gentlo influenco
That conquorod our half-savrlge, wilful hearts
And mndo us what we aro, not perfect, nay,
Perfection is a word that nono but Eve
Or her fair daughters may with justness wear,
But wo aro vastly hotter than we wero
When first our hnlting steps tho threshold passed
That led ub hero, blessed by ycjr presence Bwcet.'
O, happy mothers of the world to bo
Full earnestly wo wlsli you all the Joy
That life can give. 0, may your lives be sweet,
Your daughters virtuous,, your sons all brave;
May all your fondest hopes bo fully met '
And all your days be full of lovo and peace.
And ono thoro was who staid with us a while
And mingled with us in our dally round;
Kindly of heart, full earnest In his tasks ''
Beloved by us, his clnssmnt03 and hU friends.
But God knows best; wo know not tho hour
When Ho shall say, "Stand forth, my chosen qne."
0, let us llvo that wo may stand erect
Nor fear tho kindly voice that bids us come.
Hall classmate, not farewell; Jn life's thick fray
Always and evor side by side we press;
The victory shall be ours; guard well tho day,
Our noblest efforts God will surely bless.
