These deadeaves were a violet once,
A tender, timid thir er,
A sleeping beautyftill the wind
Kissed it awake in spring.
Then for one little, little) hour
It knew love's deep delight ;
Unto th wjooing wind ijt gave ,.
AU that a violet might.
And then it drooped and faded happily :
For, having loved, it
la not pain to die.

WHAT SHERMAN KNOWS ABOUT

that city, he let slip a few tacts wiiicnougni

The high road to poverty is the road
many people train their children to walk
in. They let them grow up without work.
They are rich, and children needn't work
that's the idea : but by and by fortune
abases them, and their families iink down
to tbe bottom of society and swell the
ranks ot tbe poor.

head to use it in. They have, in fact, a
small shop of life to work in. :
They are weak,flccid, poor in brain
fibre. They are easily discouraged. They
are shiftless, transplanting their tree once
iu evrry twentyfoCir hours. These are
the port yon bear called 'Nd shakes,"
and "No count." When physiology tell
the whole story we shall find that it is the
grandfather if not the father of characty.
To throw a man weak in brain power,
small in the cheat, ricketty in the limbs,
into the world is almost certain poverty to
to him. He can't help it. He didn't give
the measure tor his body and limbs. It
id not his fault that he is like a bag with
out a backbone. There are thousands of
which poverty reaps its bosom full.
There are others azain who possess iu-
rtiiBtrv and pood health, but they have
no tact. Thev are ne'er-do-wells, dream
ers, without organizing power. They are
fit tor routine wora, Dm mrow mem uut
of that and they are good fornothiug.
These causes ot i poverty come to man
everywhere. aBut there are orue cauie

bottom, among the poor, and irom tnem

But who can tell where ail tne young men

They disappear like snow no cne can
tell where the flakes go to.
The city had peculiar temptations to
lead men into habits that brought poverty.
In some villages there are as many cor
rupting influences. But in cities tempta
tions to the young were made more attrac
tive and alluring. Many young men who
have come to New lork conld have suc
ceeded but for self indulgence. They
break down. They have no glaring vices,
but some secret indulgence has wasted
the j-nrd of life. Iu cities, too. you find
the sittings of society, men and women
driven there from various causes mis
fortune, sickness, betrayal. 1 here are
the settings, also, of the great stream of
immigration. In our seaports there are
tho infernal sharks who rob the sailors
and the emigrants, consume them in purse
or virtue. Talk of cannibals. If you
want cannibals come to New York, and
you'll find tbem down at Castle Garden.

grant clean they cast him out.
