Midnight has past, and all too quick,
The Chronicle's Chief Ed.
With temples throbbing, brain quito sick,
Betakes himself to bed.
There is no copy on his tile,
His basket's flowing o'er
With worthless notes that are so vile
They make him thirst for gore.
lie lies and thinks, he thinks all night,
Poor chap ! he's almost dead ;
The editorials he must write
Keep him in constant dread.
If we are late the reason's plain,
I don't mind telling you,

One night my heart sang strangely, sadly sweet—
In low, soft, mournful cadence thrilled and thrilled;
With all a heart's dull sorrowing replete
It throbbed, and then its moaning song was stilled.
That night my dear love died—ah ! who can say
Might she not come in ghostly wanderings!
Ilaybap her grieving spirit passed this way,
And breathed its loving sorrow o'er the strings.

When tho grain Is gold as the autumn sun,
And the "harvest home" has just begun,
Along the dykes where grasses nod
Is seen the gleam of the golden rod.
And by the shore whore the eat-tails wave,
The long green reeds the waters lave,
And nature seetnv at peace with God
When the land is bright with golden rod. —Sequoia
A lacing of a ladye's shoe
Once loosed itself, as lacings doe,
And tyeing it, in gallantrie,
A youthful lover bent his knee.
But soon once more It came untyed,
And then the ladye showed with pryde
How she herself a knot could tye
Which would both tyme and chance de
Long years since then have passed away
The hair of both has turned to gray ;
A ladye's shoe is loose again,
A man, now old, stoops clown as then.
He tyes it as in days of yore
A ladye taught him, years before ;
And looking in her eyes he sees
Sad tears for ancient memories.
She is most charming, I admit,
And bath a fund of ready wit,
But yet -
She naught will say that is not truth,
And tells me I ain but a youth
As yet.
When other girls will say , you men,"
She miles most graciously, and then
Exclaims: •
No youth is man unless he thrive,
Amid reach the age . of twenty-live.

When I get time—
I know what I shall do ;
I'll cut the leaves of all my books
And read them through and through
When I get time—
I'll write some letters then
That I have owed for weeks and weeks
To many, many men.
When 1 get time—
I'll pay those calls I owe,
And with those bills, those countless bills
I will not be so low.
When I get time
-I'u regulate my life
In such a way that I may got
Acquainted with my wife.
When I get time—
Oh, glorious dream of bliss 1
A month, a year, ten years from now—
But I can't finish Me—
-1 have no time.
