A son" of the early times out West,
And our green old forest home,
Whoe plensnnt memories freshly yet
Across the bosom eome!
A sonjr for the fresh and gladsome life,
In those early days we led,
With a teeming soil beneath our feet,
And fl smiling heaven o're our bean1 1
Oh ! the waves bf life danced merrily,
And hnd a joyous flov)
In the days when we Were rioneer,
Fifty years ago. '
The hunt, the shot, the glotious chase,
The captured elk or deer;
The camp, the big bright fire, and then
Hie rKh and wholesome cheer
The sweet, sound sleep at dead of nl't,
By our camp fire blaring high,
Unbroken by the wolf's long howl,
And the panther springing by.
Oh 1 merrily passed the time, despite
Our wily Indian foe, ' ',
In the days wlien'.we were Pioneers,
Fifty years ago. ' '
We shunned not labor; when 'twas done
We wrought with right good will :
And for the homes we wrought for them,
Our children bless us still.
We liyed not hermit lives, but oft
In social converse met " 1
And fires of love were kindled there,
That burn as warmly yet.
Oh 1 pleasantly the stream of life
Pu-sued its constant (low,
In the days when we were Pioneers,
Fifty years ago.
We felt that we were fellow men j
We felt we were a band, ;
Sustained here In the wilderness, .
By Heaven's upholding hand.
, And when the solemn Sabbath came,
We gathered In the wood,
And lifted tip our hearts in prayer
To God, the only good..
Our temples then were earth and sky ;
None others did we know, '
' In the days when w were Pioneers,
...Fifty years ago. -
Our forest life was rouj-h and rude, .
And dangers closed ns round ; (
Hut here amid tie green old trees,
We freedom sought and found. .
Oft through oar dwellings, wintry blast
Would rush with shriek. and moan; ,
We ared net, though they were but frail,
We felt they were our own.
Oh 1 free and manly lives we led,
Mid verdure or mid snow,
In the days when we were Pioneers,
( Fifty years iigo. , .
But now our course of life is short j
And as from day to day,
We're marching on with halting step,
And fainting by the Way, " '.
Another land, rfi'dre blight than this,
To our diin sight appears,
And on our way to it we'll soon ,
Again be Tionecrs. . '
Yet while w linger we may all ,
A backward glauce still throve,
To the days when we were Pioneers,
Fifty jean ago. ',

have inliuituly more to recommend them

Detroit Free Press relates a Robinson,,
Crusoo story of three young lads who ran'
nwny from their anxious mammas in that '
city, took to the lake in an old skilT, and
wero hunted after by the police for some
time. It says:
It beinf known that they were sometimes '
in the h 1 tit of gdlng to Belle Isle, two 1
miles above the city, to fish. Search was s
iustituted in that direction.
An old Frenchman on the Island
reported that a colony of some mysterious
description was sottled on the upper end
of the Island, but he was unable to say ''
who its members were composed of. '
'uriher investigations, however, revealed ' n
the fact that the new colony was made up q
of tho romautic young runaways whose
mammas were in search of them. They
were snugly domiciled in an old fishing ' I
hut of small dimensions, the cracks of ;
which they had stopped with grass and :i
weeds. An old lire placo in one corner, , ,
with a mud chimney, was well supplied
with driftwood from the beach, aud a skil- , ?
let and tin kettle constituted their cooking" 1
utensils. - Ihree blankets and . a bench. ?
completed the outfiit. On the walls were) t ,
hung the fishing tackle.
When firs-t suprised, the runaways'"
wero enguged in the agreeable occupation "
of demolishing a large pike, which bad
uecu cooiiod m tne sKiuet, wan no seas ;;
onipg but ea't. They said they had had '
lots of fun, and pleniy of fish to eat, and
were intending W remain All summer lft!l
they had n Jt been dincovered. The oldest ,n
only about twelve years of age, said that lt
tho idea had been put into his head by ,
reading IiMnson ' CYusoe, and that he '
had persuaded the other i off. - Their feU'-'
icuy was complete, with the eiception;
that they wanted a roan Friday, to secure ,v
whom they had contemplated, crossing ( ,
over to Canada and kidnapping a small
Kanuck boy. This was abandoned as tod '
dangerous, considering the small vaiU'-
able force, and it was then ' planned thaf
one of them should return td the city nd
coax his sweeihart, a little girl,, to come;
and live with them and cook 'the fish.'
This plan would have been carried oat ;!
had they not been found, f Thar were
returned to . their mammas with eolde
from aleeping on the floor. . f r ;. j
