The following Valentine, written by a lady
near ninety years of age, residing in Stratford,
Ct., to an equally venerable citizen of Bridge
port, Ct., is a pleasant memento of olden times.
REMINISCENCE OF EARLY DAYS:
To my early friend andonly surviving Schgolrnate,
'Tis mnre•than three score years and ten,
Our life's allotted span, •
Since firs in youthful happy days
Our friendship true began.
'Tis more tbas tbree score years and ten,
Since as a joyous child,
I played with you on "Stratford Green,"
In„,may a frolic wild.
As I look back upon,those years,
Three score. and ten, and five,
Of all the mates we - numbered; then,
But we too are aliye I
We two—of all thaelittle band
Of sportive girls and boys, •
Who wept together in childish grief,
'And smiled o'er childish joys.,
And we're far down the vale of years,
And time is fleeting fast—
Yet I would be a child once more,
,And live again the past! '
Tears seventy-five I how thrills my heart,
As memory bears me back, "
To tread again with buoyant steps,
DIY girlhood's sunny track.
But in life's retrospect, I see
Full many a saddened scene,
For life has not been all'a play.
On dear old Stratford Green.
We've drank, dear, friend, its mingled cup
Of sorrow And of joy,
ciu4e I was but a sportive girl,
And you a.ltppy boy.
We both were blessed with many friends,
How few are left alive!
The dearly loved hare passed away,
And yet we stil survive !
We stills'urvive—itod it maybe
:A year—perhaps a day— I.
\rhea like the loved ones gone before,
We too shall paes away. j
God grant that inllife's partiUg hour,
Our toils and. I.thor done,
We nifty go gently to our rest,
As sinks on setting sun.
When we were yonag,'twas stirring times—
The age of iron men,
Who rAng the trumpet's warlike shout
From every.hill and glen;.
IN:ho for their .country and their homes,
Their liberty -itud life,
"God and the r.eht." their battle cry,
They conquered iu the strife.
•Tis true we were but children then,
But we remember well
Bow many a hearth-was desolate,
How many, a patriot fell !
For oft the parent on his knee
Wbtild seat his lisping child,
And tell strange tales of battle scenes, !!
And legends stern and wild.
And oft our childish cheeks were blancl;ed
And childish tears would !flow,
s wonderingly we listened then,
To deeds of blood and woe.
But joy best suits the youthful heart,
'Tis always light and free;
And so as it hath ever been,
It was with you and me.
And still your boyhood sports went on--
Diy girlhood's laughter rung,
For iu those days of sternest deeds,
Both you and I were young!
Do you remember, dear cildTriend,
The simple "village school,
Wheie "Mr. Ayres" taught little folks
To read and write by rule?
Children were timid—teachers stern,
In those our youthful day's,
Vnen copy books in band we went,
. Trembling to teek his praise.
And when you won the wished for book,
And I stood sadly by, •
You often caused a ray of hope i
' To light my downcast eye.
No matter what the teachers said,
Fresh from your geuerout ,briasf,
Came to my ear the flattering words,
That mine was "arrays b l est."
Do you remember that I sent
You then a "Valentine?"'.
Fine sentiment perhaps it lacked,
But loved breathed in each line
It seems but yesterday—these "fire
And seventy years" ago
You•then had own' d no other,belle,
And I no other beau.
I in return a ribbon got,
• Bright•with true love's own line;
And much it pleased my girlish taste,
For 'twas the honest blue.
But childhood gaickly sped away,
And hearts were lost and won,
And soon you owned another love,
And I anothir . "John I" ,
With him I journeyed many years,
Happy a:;d blest were we '
He lived to see his -bairnii bairns,"
Prattling upbn his kneel
"We elamb thegither np the
But down alone I go I
"And soon thegitber at.its :foot"
With hini I'll lap-me love._

UDERSPORT, POTTER COIMTY,
Yet rot alone tor loing hearts
Arejleft m childhood de:li,
Who in my dotfuward path of life,.
SmOoth each declining year.
And oft to glad mine aged eyes,
My childhood's children come,
And merry laughter rings again
In my old happy home. •
For you,;sole mate of my early days
I've cast a bdckward eye
Along' the changing track of time
Asp it has hurried by.
And forward. may we dare to look !
Another opening year
Has dawned upon us, and its close
May scarcely find us here !
One may be taken. one be left,
It May be me, or yon
Still while we lire, my early friend,
Shall live out friendship true.
My years now number eighty-eight!
And yours are eighty-nine!
Then once more, as in days of yore,
Accept my Valentine.
Febrdary 14th. MRS. R. T.
"Where's Jamie ?" asked Madge, tim
idly, coming into the rcorm- cheery with
its pretty crimson coal firm and bright
yellow jets of gas-light.
Her cousin looked up coldly at the
question, Uncle Gould frowned ominously
over his paper, and Aunt Gould juk
said, very drily :
"In his room."
Itlatige looked uneasily from one to the
other; but no single pair of eyes .turned
upon her with sympathy or explanation,
and after a few moments of irresolu.ion,
she laid down her sehool•books, and stole
from the room. In the bail she wet the
house-maid: . •
-Oh! Betty, please tell me, has any
thing happened, and Why didn't Jathie
come to school this afternoon ?".
Betty shook her head. ,
"WCII, Miss, I don't like to grieve ion,
but yOur brother has done a horrible
thing, feud if he was a poor boy now, I
suppose he'd be looking through iron
bars a;-night in the county jail !" I
"Oh', Betty, what do you mean ?" said
Madge, turning quite pale.
"Well. Miss." said Betty, sinking her
voice to a Whisper, "you'd. have to know

I"Never !" cried Madge, vehemently.
"Now tell Inn all about it. Bow could i
any one dare to say so ?"
"I hardly know where to begin," said
Jamie with a great effort at self-control
"I'll have to tell you something I've been
keeping a secret ever since last summer.
You see when Consist Bell had her birth
day party last June, and all, the girls',
swept around in such pretty shining silks,
or else dresses half clouds and half cob
webs; and you only had that pink calico
—it hurt me, I don't know why.. You
looked just as sweet as any,yes, the
prettiest of all I thought ; but when Fish

Isn't4lle.pretty, and doesn't her diess
look as, if she bad bought three or four
yards of sunset, and had the moon up' all
night sawing stars en it ?' Then the boys
laughed, and I. sald—' And isn't my sister
pretty, too ?" for you did look as sweet as
a rose, I thought; but that proud Fisher
. laughed just like , a knife-1
mean it seemed to cut right into me, and
he said--'O, ,yes, and how kind Betty
was to lend her that dress.' Some of the
boys said--. Too bad ?' but that only hurt
we more, and I crept away pretty soon,
and 'lay.behind the thick snow-ball bitsh
es, and 'looked 'up in the great, still sky,
and wondered why God couldn't have
taken you and we too wbeu father ; and
mother died, and not left us to come to
this:proud, rich uncle, who 1i0e.4 not Noce
us, and who treats us like little beggars."
"Oh, don't say so, Jamie," said Madge
