CUPUID IN THE SCHOOL ROOM,

lives in Nazareth, Pa.
It seems that this child asks

AT THE END OF THE WAY.
Have done with love forever—
\X’iih all its peace and pain,
And nevermore—ah, never
Shall we twain meet again !
Not as in days departed—
Not as in rose-sweet years;
You leave me broken-hearted—
Your gift 10 me was rears!
Not that 1 dpubt you love me—
Or did, through wreck and wrong;
From Mower-fair heights above me
You love me for a song !
()ndreamed-of bells were ringing.
Skies that were dark seemed blue;
And all my sweetest singing
Was of the love of you !
Strange stars above you gleaming.
Lost ships that come to shore;
You know that you were dreaming
Whom now must dream no more.
With far and certain seeing
1 mark the dream’s decline
•And feel your radiant being
Slip from the clasp of mine.
With tears, perchance, and sighing,
Where all is gloom and blight,
I feel It Is the dying
Feel the vague loss of light;
And as the showers darken,
Stretch unavailing hands
To where no loved ones hearken
In undiscovered lands.
Farewell, Love’s richest treasure—
The beauty and tlie beam !
I'arewell the pain, the pleasure.
Farewell the dream—the dream !
The future is adorning
F'or you a splendid sky;
Love only said “(loud nioiiuug,"

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO-DAY ?
We shall do so much in the years to come,
But what have we done to-day ?l
We shall give our gold in a princely sum.
But what did we give to-day?
We shall lift the heart and dry the tear,
We shall plant a hope In the place of fear,
We shall speak the words of love and cheer.
But what did we speak to-day ?
We shall be so kind in the after-a-while.
But what have we been to-day?
We shall bring to each lonely life a smile.
But what have we brought to-day?
We shall give to truth a grander birth.
And to standfast faith a deeper worth.
We shall feed the hungering souls of earth,
But whom have we fed to-day?
We shall reap such joys in the by-and-by,
But what have we sown to-day ?
We shall build large mansions towering so high.
But what have we built to-day ?
'Tis sweet in idle dreams to bask.
But, here and now, do we do our task ?
Yes, this is the thing our soul must ask,
"What have we done to-day?"
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART
A crust of bread, a pitcher of
v.’ater, a log cabin and perfect
love—there is hapjiiness for you
'vhether the day be rainy or
fihiny. It is the Iieart that
makes the eye rest on a potato
patch or flower garden. The
heart makes home precious,and
it is the only thing that can.

BEWARE THE DOQ.
A family moved from the
city to a suburban locality and
were told that they should get
a watchdog to guard the prem
ises at night. So they bought
the largest dog that was for
sale in the kennels of a neigh
boring ilog fancier, who was a
German. Shortly afterward
the house was entered by bur
glars, who made a good haul,
while the big dog slept. The
man went to the dog fancier
ar\d told him about it,
“ Veil,vat you want now,” said
the dog merchant, “is a leedle
dog to vake up the big dog,’’—
BABIES AND MUSIC.
Baby Often Has More Intelll-
Kence Than Both Parents Put
Habies have a lot of sense.
T hey usually know a great deal
better than their parents what
is good for them. If a baby’s
wishes were consulted in the
mutter, it «>uld never choose
to go to a public concert or or-
giin recital or church service
where a crowd of grown ups
sit around in siletice and listen
to sounds that are either unin-'
telligible or irritating to the
infant ear. Hut baby isn't iti-
vited. He is bundled up aud
lugged along willy-nilly.
When this happens, the baby,
having a great deal more in-
telligenc.e than both itspareltts
put together, realizes before its
parents do that it is in a place
where it oughtn’t to he. Where
upon it sets up a lusty howling,
or if it is a loiigsiiH'eriiig kind
of baby with a forgiving dis
position towards the grown-
ttjis, it sets about to jirovide it
self sonu' legitimate amuse
ment that is not olTered on the
progiam. either pulling the os
trich plnnu'.s out of a noighbor-
ing lady's hat, or making a
rattle out of its mother's ]iock-
etbuok. No sensible, healthy
infant woulii>be foolish enough
to sit in silence without protest
through a three-liour musical
program in which it isn't in
terested. It takes grown men
and women to do that.

HE WAS A COOL MAN.
“He was the coolest man 1 ever
saw,” said a Philadelphia clubman,
speaking of young athlete of
this city, who has won considera
ble renown for his prowess.
“Why, one day,’’ continued the
clubman, “we were standing on a
pier at i’alm Beach when I was
suddenly startled to see a man’s
head appear above the waves. Bob
never paid a bit of attention to the
fellow, but took out a malch and
started to till his pipe.
“ ‘Help, man !' cried the chap
in the water. “Can't you see I
am overboard?’ 1 can’t swim.’
“ ‘How often have you been
down?’ asked'Bob, shielding the
nickering match from the wind.
“ ‘Once, 1 believe, but hurry up
man, give me a hand.'
“ ‘You wait. You have two
times yet to go down and I have
only one match. I'll get you on
the last trip,' replied Bob, and he

was his word of consolation,
