Mine Is nn humble, toilsome lot.
My home n lowly little cot.
And pleasant trips oYr land and sea
Nor wheel nor sail e'er proffers me.
Day holds nu can-bound, but the night.
Cheery with hearthftre's glowing light.
Vouchsafes rare journeys with the clvej
That bide in covers on my shelves.
From open page these curious friends,
cone out at rail, with power that send'
Me in their wake, at lightning pace,
Through storied realms of tfme and
From frozen fields of Arctic snow
To vales where tropic splendors glow.
Fast craggy heights, o'er waters wide.
Fearless we soar, we glance, we glide.
Famed kings and lovely queens we greet;
Knights-erinnt In their tourneys meet;
With founders and explorers stray.
Or talk with scholars by the way*.
Sages look on with solemn eyes.
Dropping their queries and replies.
While mystics breathe bewildering
Till all the air with wonder teems.
The sweet hours come, the sweet hours
Upon the hearth the tire burns low;
Then dainty singers, dreamy-eyed,
From rhythmic covers softly glide,
Crooning their low, delicious runes.
And. lulled by cadence of the tunes,
I fall asleep amid the elves
That hide In covers on my shelves.

How Damsels of Babylon Were Once
An million of unmarried ladies used
to take place annually in Babylon. In
every district they assembled on a
certain daj of every year all tlie vir
gins of marriageable age. The most
remarkable was first put up, and the
man who bid the largest sum of
money gained possession of her.
The second in personal appearan e fol
lowed, and the bidders gratified them
selves with handsome wives accord
ing to the depth of their purses. But
alas! It seems that there were in
Babylon some ladies l'or whom no
money was likely to he offered, yet
these also were disposed of so provi
dent were the Babylonians. When all
the beautiful virgins were sold, the

would marry her wiih a small sum,
she was at length adjudged to the
man who would be satisfied with the
least, and in this manner the mo i .
