Right up to tUo mnrkot stntl strodo lie,
And bought n bird that was ton pounds three
Then quickly homo to his wlfo ho sped,
And told hor nil that tho mnn hnd said
Of how to pick nnd stuff nnil cook.
' And so with loving hand sho took
That tough old bird Hint was hard nnd gray
And Into tho nvoii sho stowed him away.
And thon for tholr married lifo was young
Wlth joyous hearts they sat and suns
Until, as around tho clock hnuds spun,
Sho said with n smllo that tho bird was dono.
And ho laughed aloud, and his Joy was great,
For his stomach told that tho hour was lato.
And ho kissed his wlfo and ho cried In glco
At tho flno old bird that was ten isiunds three.
And said, "I will out him now In two;"
And took his knlfo that was bright and now
And Lacked away for an hour or so,
Till his blado got dull and his movements slow;
And then, with prayer and n moment's rest,
He took off his coat and then his vest.
And hacked away till twilight camo.
And bis arms wero soroand his hack was lame.
And tho hours woro on and tho weeks sped by,
And still, with a sunken check and oye.
Ho worked uway, and his w ifo sat there,
With patient face, in tho samo old chair.
Until ono day, as his knlfo blado broke,,
And his withered f ramo sank down, sho spoke,
And said, with a smllo that was half a sneer,
"I should think you would learn to carvo, my
dear." Thomas Lansing.

The icccnt death of n young fireman from

duty and thu fatal shooting of a somew hat
notorious character havo both shocked thu
community In an unusual degree. For thu
onotheio is admiration, for the other pity,
but in both cases Hie sensibilities of people
havo been strongly ntrected. It goes to
show how dear life is to till of us. It com
pels us to pause a moment In our careless,
every day occupations, and biiugs homo to
us a realization of thu fact that nn accident
or nn net of another may stop our earthly
caieer at nny moment. Theio nro several
lessons to be drawn fiom these facts. They
should tench us to sut our houses in order
and bo ever reudy for thu dread summons.
It should teach us tho value of the services
pf tho men who risk their lives for tho pub

greater charity for those who may bo op.'ii
to criticism, but of whoso inner lives wo
know little. Lifo is the most precious thing
on em tli, death tho most solemn. Tho du
