There are flowers that never wither,
There are skies that never fade,
Ttere are trees that cast forever
Cooling bowers of leafy shade.
There are silver wavelets flowing
With a lulling sound of rest,
tfhere the west wind, softly blow
Fans the fair land of the blest.
Tbitherward our steps are tending,

More of grief than pleasure blending 1
In the darsening wwj u jwo.
Often would our footsteps weary
Sink upon the winding way,

O'er us beams a cheering ray.
Thus the Father who hath made as
Tenants of this world of care,

Toward the home it doth inherit,
Far behind tne azure tK..
There's a voice that whimpers lowly
Down within this heart of mine,
Where emotions the most holy
Ever make their sacred shrine,
And It tells a thrilling story
Of the great Redeemer's love,
And the all bewildering story
Of the better land above.
Oh, this life, with all its sorrows,
Hasteth onward to a clote !

MY FIRST LOVE.
BY M. K. D.
When I was a little boy twelve
fuin old, I fell in love with my
first sweetheart. She was apretty,
Mr little creature, with long, yel-
h.v hair and lived only a few doors
fv-ay from us. At first I nsed to
ratch her playing with her doll, in
fcrr little front garden, without
during to speak to her. Her parents

rre not acquainted with them ;

rhiMish overtures to acquaintance

ing at her pate, and at last In a
rniechles3 offer of candy through
the palings. The candy was ac
cepted and we were friends hence
forth. Often I used to take my little
cart and go to her gate and whistle
there. Then she would bring out
her doll, dressed In hat and shawl t
and put it in the wagon, and take
hold of the cross-handle, of which
I held one side, and away we would
go down the road, generally stop
ping at the graveyard, which was
preen and pretty and bad neither
terrors nor sad associations to us.
There we would play until we
heard the clock strike six.
It was always after school that
ve started on these excursions, and
then we would pack the doll into
the wagon and go home again. We
ilways talked a great 'deal on the
vray, and I suppose a listener would
have been much amused at our
chat. We however thought it very

The process of diamond cutting is
a very simple matter to those ac

are cemented n two sticks, and

one of the stones is changed, c tid

Too Many Lovers.
Young ladies sometimes get
themselves Into trouble by having
two lovers, both of whom are pay
ing assiduous at once. An instance
of the truth of this occurred to a cer
tain young lady In this city a few
days ago. . One of the lovers invit
ed her to attend the theatre with
him, which invitation she accepted
with evident pleasure. The other
lover, however, had invltedt her to
go with him the same evening, and
having also accepted this invitation
she was in a quandary what to do.
In the afternoon preceding the
evening she was to see the play,
lover No. 1 received a perfumed
note from her, stating that she was
unable to go with him on account
of illness. The explanation was
satisfactory to him, but having
purchased reserved-seat tickets he
concluded he would go alone. What
was his surprise shortly after his
arrival there to behold the young
lady enter leaning on the arm of I
lover No. 2 and both take their 1
seats near him. He was thunder
struck, and of course had no relish
during the evening for the beauties
of the play. The next evening he
prom ded to the lady's house for
an explanation of the matter, hav
ing understood himself to be her
accepted lover. Loer No. 2 hap-

than when he came, but ignorant
of the fact that his rival was in the
