Oh ! the snow, the beautiful snowi
Filling the sky and earth below ;
Over the housetops, over the street,
Over the beads of the people you meet.
Beautiful snow ! it can do no wrong !
Flying to kiss a fair lady's cheek,
Clinging to lips it: a frolicsome freak ;
Beautiful snow from the heaven above
Pure as an ar.ge! gentle as love !
Oh ! Ihe snow, the beautiful snow
How the fUke gather and laughs they go,
Whirling about in the maddening fon !
It p'ys in its glae with 9very one,
! iiuis un me lace auu u pparmen hid
And tbe dogs, with a bark and a bound,
Snap at the crystals that eJdy around.
The town is alive, and ii heart in a glow
To welcome the coming of beau'iful snow.
How wild the crod goes swaying alortg,
Hailing each othr with tcmor and song.
How ths gay sledges, like meteors flash by,
Bright for the moment, then lost to the eye !
Dashing they go,
Over the crust of the beautiful snow
Snow so pore when it falls from the sky,
To be trampled in mud by the crowd rush .
To be trampled and tracked by tha thou
sands of feet,
Tiil it blends with the filth in tbe horrible
Onca I wa pcre as the snow bjit I fell !

Fell, like the snow fUkas, from heaven to hell j
Fell, to be trampled as fihh in the street,
Feil to be scoffed, to ba spit oa and teat;
Dreading to die,
Selling my soul to whoever would bey";
Dealing in shame for a morsel of bread.
Hating the living and fearing the dead.
Merciful God ! have I fallen to low ?
And yet I was once like the beautiful scow.

With an eye like the crystal, a heart like its

Flittered and sought" for the charms of my

Tin veriest wretch that goes shivering by
Will make a wide swcop lest I wander too
For all that is on or above ma, I know,
There's nothing that's pure as tbe beautiful
How strange it shoald bo thai this beautiful
Should fall oa a sinner with nowhere to go !
Hovy strange it should be, when the nigh:
If the snow and the ice struck my desperate

Too wicked for prayer,too weak for a moan,
To be heird in tbe streets of the crazy town,
Gone mad in the joy ol the snow coming

A great many years ago there stood a

for a rich and powerful baron, but the bar

small, dilapiJated apartment, that appear

"The room is in there," said ihe child.
'To. where! Why, no. Duu'i you sea

"There ta door,"said Alice. "The room

John, the el lest son, was carefully feel-

"Father," he cried, quite fiueheJ, "I feel

a sreal wood picture in that other room,
and the chet is behind it.
Much excited, fa'.he' and son went to
work. The paper soon lay in strips on the
floor. Yes, there was a door, carefully
wedged cp. It was not the work of many
moments to dislodge the hindrances, and
soon the little party socd in a close, muv.y

thick, preen plas were nearly emirelr ob

And to work they went, clearing away
old planks and useless lumber.
"There's the wood picture,'' said little
It was a painted panel. John Thorpe, as
soon as he saw it, caught the child in his

Ard k'tSiioii her, he sat her down, crying
cut again, "No.v J"hn Wilired, to work."
They could make no impressi dv, c.pyn the
panel, howr-ver, till the son had brought a
hoavy axe to tt father's aid. Then they
split the thick wood, and behind it appear

like the ott.er. Tt-.ere, in troth, was a cav

they co!d see nothing in the darkness.
"A lamp, good wife," said John Tflorpe.
And a lamp was brought.
Cautiously the elder eon entered this
