Sweet moon, I lovo thee, yet I grieve
To gaze on that nalo orb to-night !
It tells mo of tint last dear ovo
I passed Willi her-my soul's delight,
Hill, vale nnd wood nnd stream were dyed
Hi tho palo glory of thy beams,
As forth wo wandered, sldo by sldo
Onco moro to tell love's burning dreams.
My fond arm was her living zone,
Jly hand within her hand was press'd.
And lovo was lncach earnest tone,
And rapture In cacli heaving breast.
And many a high nnd fervent vow
as breathed from her full heart and mine,
While thy calm light was on her brow
l.lko puro i ellglou's seal ami sign.
Wo knew, alas I that wo must p.nt,
Wo knew we must bo severed long,
i'ctjoy was lu each throbbing heart,
l'or love was deep, and fnlth was strong.
A thousaud memories of tho past
Were busy In each glowing breast.
And hopo upon tho futuro csst,
Her rainbow llucsand wo were West,
I craved a boon Oh I lu that boon
Thero was a wild, delirious bliss
Ah, didst thou ever gaze, sweet moon,
Upon a moro Impassioned kiss?
Tho pai ting came ono moment brief
Her dim and fading form I viewed
Twas gono and thero I stood In grief
Amid Ule's awful solitude.
Tell ine, sweet moon, for thou cau'sl tell,
If passion's still unchanged In tier's
Do thoughts of mo her heart still swell
Amoug her many worshipers?
Say, docs she sometlmos wander now.
At ovo beneath thy gcntlo llame,
To ralso to heaven her nngel brow
And brcalho her nbstnt lover's name?
Oh, w hen her gentle lids are wet,
I pray thee, mark each falling gem,
Aud tell mo If my Imago yet
Is pictured tremblingly lu thcinl
Ay, tell me, docs her bosom thrill
As wildly as of yoro for mo
Docs her young heal t adoro mo still,
Or Is that young heart changed llko theo?
Oh, let thy beams, that softest shlno,
If still my lovo to her is dear,
Bear to her gcntlo heart from rnluo
A sigh, a blessing, and a tear.

Just about az ccriinonys creep into

An Industrious man is seldom a bad
Men will believe thelrpashuns quick

yet their pashuns aro generally wrong.
and their consciences aiwus right.
It ain't much troublo tow bear tho
pain of sum body elso's lamo back, but
tew hav the lamo back oneself ain't so
Despising fortune is notn euro way to
gain her favors pipo to her, and alio
may danco to you.
Tako all tho interest out of this world
and thero wouldn't bo friendship

Sekrcts aro a burden, and that is ono
reason why wo aro anxious lo have
somebody help us carry them.

not stand n moment nt n street corner,
