Thou risest with the morning sun7

And when thy daily task is done, .
Then scek'st thy peaceful hearth.
Thou lovest not the gaudy town,
Tik its tumultuous roar,
Plenty and peace thy fire-side crown,
And thou dost ask no more.
Monarchs in robes with crimson dj-ed,
Arc low compared with thee,
They are pampered sons of pride,
Thou art God's nobility.
Go on, thou sturdT farmer,
Tread proudly on the sod,
Thy proud and goodly heritage,
Thou chosen son of God.

The Elixir of Life.
In all ages and countries the search for
an Elixir of Life has consumed the time
of philosophers and impoverished their
wealthiest patrons. And" yet few persons
even if they could, would choose to live
forever on earth. Our happiness here is
so involved with that of others, that he
who survives his family and friends has
little left for which to live. Could a man's
existentCJ do protracted to hve hundred
years, he would spend at least the last
