Vkno things aever come again:
8aow may vanish (rem the plain.
Blossoms from ths dewy sod.
Verdure from taw broken clod.
Water froia the river's bed.
Forests from the mountain's bead,
Night may brighten into day.
Noon In midnight fad away.
Yet the snow shell ccmo once mora
When the winter tempests roar.
Blossoms each rcturetnj spring
In her laden arm3 shall bring,
Qrcss h? crecn irho o ii'ousharcs run,
R.tctj fla-,h in autumn's sun.
T mo shall bid the f.irsbts grow.
Noon and inidnigu t itmt and go;
But though all thy soul complain.
Three things, bll not coma again.
Never to the bow thut bends
Comes the arrow that it sends;
Spent in &pacc, its airy flight
Vcsiihcs like lost delight.
When iv.th rapid elm it sprang
From the bovstring'j shivering twang
Straight to brain or heart it Ced,
Ono i for nil itsoarac was sped.
No w:ld iva-.l ur)on its track
Brings the barb of vengeance back.
Bold thy hand before lto;
Pause beside the bended bow;
Hurtled onoc across the plain.
No spent arrow come again.
Never comes the change that passed!
That one moment was its last.
Though thy life upon it hnng.
Though thy death beneath it swung
If thy future ell tho way
Now In darkucs gees astray.
When the instant born of fate
Passes through tho golden gate;
When the hour, but not the man,
Comes and goes from Nature's plan;
Nevermore its countenance
Beams upon thy slow advance.
Never more that time shall be
Burden hearer unto thec
Weep r.nd search o'er land and main,
Lost cliasce ne er oonies again.
Never shall thy !nola word

the curioas piece of workmanship up and
examining it, with the air of a connois

Dorothy's cup of bitterness which was al
ready overflowing. She had let them enter
her house, given tnem their breakfast, and
now, after allowing them all these liberties,
always under protest, that they would now
begin to confiscate her DmmrhrvM tM

to go on.
"Well, if I must I suppose I must, but if
ever I wished a feather bed was filled with
ino needles, I wish that thar one was,"
and with that she opened a door disclosing
a comfortable bed-room. Thev silonttw n.
tered tho room, and she, with a baag of tho

sho said, suddenly, turaisg to the boy who
was the solo occupant of the room and who
was gazing at her in bewilderment, " I've
