In the multiplicity of fairs this season,

Beneath the Mask.
Once there came to us en angel
Bearing glory on its wings ;
And within our ear it whispered
All the softest, sweetest things.
Long we looked, and long we listened,
While the murmurs, glad and gay,
So enraptured, so entranced us,
That we could not turn away.
Deep those music tones, and deeper
In our heart of hearts they went,
And within its quiet chambers '
Kindled doubt and discontent.
All the perfect peace of childhood,
All the simple trust of years,
Fled away before its presence,
Leaving shadows—leaving tears.
Then, like angry waves uprising
In continual unrest,
Dashed the dark and angry surges
Of a tempest in our breast.
Yet, for all the grief it brought us,
Still we loved the angel so,
That, for fear of painful parting,
We were loth to let it go.
0111 the wildness of that worship
Oh I the blindness dim and dark!
Fearful, quenchless flame enkindled
By a single passing spark.
Viewed we still the face of glory
Which the angel always wore;
And each time we gnzeil upon it,
Loved and worshipped more and more
Till ns bending fondly o'er um,
Full of tenderness it leaned,
Lot the mask fell off—betraying
Not an angel, hut a fiend
Shrank we then away in terror,
Full of morrow and nurprine,
With the Minty veil uplifted
From our folly-blinded eyes.
Forced into the dread conviction,
That however it appear
Gentle spirits are among on,
Fallen angels too are here.
And though face and form possesses
All the beauty one could ask,
We have learned to look still deeper,
Pi the heart beneath the mask
Come to me In my Dreams
111: E. D. PRENTICE.
Come in beautiful dreams, love,
Oh come to me oft,
When the light wing of sleep,
On my bosom lies soft.
.Oh I come when the sea, '
In the moon's gentle light,
Beats low on the ear,
Like the pulse of the night—
When the eke and the wave,
Wear their loveliest blue,
When the dew's on the flower
And the star on the dew.
Come in beautiful dreams, love,
WI I come and we'll stray,
Where the whole year is crowned,
With the blossoms of May—
Where each sound is as sweet
As the song ofa dove,
And th e gala s tire ns SAM
As the "breathing of love
Where the beams kiss the ware,
And the waves kiss the beach,
And our warm lips may catch
The sweet lesson they teach.
Come iu beautiful dreams, love,
Oh ! come and we'll fly,
Like two winged spirits,
)1' lore, through the sky ;
,With hand clasped in band
On our dream wings we'll go,
'Where the starlight and moonlight,
Are blending their glow ,
And on bright clouds we'll linger
Through long dreamy hours,
Till lures angels envy

The Heart's Flowers.
The human heart is like a garden hedg
ed with Chorus. You must 'pars through
the difficult enclosures before you can
pluck its blossoms. As one will take
most pains to secure a violet that flourishes
iu a dangerous place—for we are naturally
fond of hazard, and prize a treasure by its
cost—so the fair growths of the heart,
when gained after much seeking, become
of exceeding value. They are worth
striving after—for where aro the flowers
with tints so exquisite, with odors so
trusporting, as those that shoot, from the
rich soil of the human bosom.
It is proper that each one should culti
vate his own domains. He who neglects
his lousehold is worse than an infidel—
and he who neglects his - land shall come
to want. But we may bestow all necessa
ry attention upon our own fields, and still
have leisure to inspire and assist others.—
We may raise the blossom that bas been
beaten down by the storm—we may train
the vine that has become misshapen—we
may relieve the plant diet is choked by
weeds—and direct the tendril that is look
ing for support. There is work to do for
others as well as for ourselves.
There may be hearts in which such aid
seems useless. There are. We can call

can reviva their blighted blossoms—no
sun that can warm to life their dead fruit.
