When I was dead, my spirit turned
To seek the much-frequented house ;
I passed the door, and saw my friends
Feasting beneath green orange-boughs,
From hand to hand they pushed the wine,
rl hey sucked the pulp of plum and peach ;
They sang, they Jested, and they laughed,
For each was loved of each.
I listened to their honest chat :
Said ono ; "To-morrow we shall be
Plodding along the featureless sands.
And coasting miles and miles ot sea."
Said one : Before the turn of tide
We will achieve the eyry-seat."
Said ono : "To-morrow shall be like
To-day, but much more sweet."
"To-morrow,"' said they, strong with hope,
And dwell upon the pleasant way :
"To-morrow," cried they, one and aU,
While no one spoke of yesterday.
Their It e stood full at blessed noon :
I, only I, had pasied away ;
"To-morrow and to-day," they cried !
1 was ot esterday.
I shivered comfortless, but cast
No chill across the table-cloth ;
I, all forgotten, shivered, sad
To stay, and et to part how loath I
I passed from the familiar room,
I, who from lovo had passed away,
Like the remembrance of a guest
That tarrletu but a day.

We have already had a great deal of com

pondents about mistakes which appear in
their articles when they come out In print.
We are awaro that In many cases the fault
Is ours, but wo are confident tho matter
ciuld bo remedied If our correspondents
would pay a little moro attention to the pre
paration of their manuscript. Printers are
not Infallible, and our proof readers do some
times make mistnkes, Wut we havo prepared
a few practical hints and Instructions, and if
our friends who writo to the paper once in a
while will kindly act upon our suggestions,
we will be personally responsible for all er
rors that our compositors may make in set
ting (not sitting) up their manuscript.
Never write with pen or ink. It is alto

If you nrc compelled to use ink never use
thnt vulgarity known as the blotting pad.
If you drop a blot of ink.on the paper, lick
it off. The Intelligent Compositor loves
nothing so dearly us the smear this will

have seen him hang over such a piece of
copy half an hour, swearing like a pirate all
the time he felt that good.
Don't punctuate. We prefer to punctu-
ato all manuscript sent to us. And don't
use capitals. Then we can punctuate nnd
capitalize to suit ourselves, nnd your article,
when you seo it in print, will astonish, even
if it does not please you.
Don't try 'to write too plainly. It is a sign
of plebeian origin' and public school breed
ing. Poor writing is an Indication of gen
ius. It's about the only Indication of gen
ius that a great many men possess. Scrawl
your article with your eyes shut, and make
every word as illegible ai you can. We get
the same price for it from the rag-man as
though it were covered with copper-plate

We know the full name of every man, wo
man nnd child In the United States, and the
merest hint at the name is sufficient. For
instance, if you write a character something
liko a drunken figure 8, and then draw a
wavy line, and the letter M nnd another
waving line, we will know at once that you
mean Samuel Morrison, even though you
may think you mean "Lemuel Messenger."

When your article is completed, crunch

If correspondent! will observe these direc
