WHAT I WOULD BE,
t would be young -but not for ckarma.
Of Joys whiek years 'can trace, ,
Not for the witchinglpells tbat lie
In beauteous farm end fee ;
Bat for the winning cbild-Iike truit,
. The ardent lore of truth, '
The innoeence that brightest shLne
Cpou the brow of youth.
' I would be eloqneat but, oh! ' 1
Tbat thrilling powur I'd ute, '
Te right Ute wreogs of safTering Mi,a ,.
And hidden light diffuse.
X would be great but not for fame,
That liTelh but a day,
And while we list, its flattering speech
Is raniihiog away. -I
would be rich to bring to light
The hidden gems ef earth, ''
Which warmed by friendship', genial glow,
Would prove of priceless worth. .
I wonld be lored but not for wealth,
Or beauty's winniug smile;
For these can wake no antwsriag chord .
Within my heart the whilo.
I would be lored for spirit, pare,
For loveliness ef soul,
For over thcte the coming years
Can nerer hare control.
I wsul J be good oh ! yes, and then
The earth wetJd all be bright, .
' And life would sees oae pleasMS dreess-
Of pore,; BmU:d Se.igut:r:
And when the semmons earns, "Depart! .
For this is not your resv".- r
I'd gently Uy me down to eleep, ; , .', ,
Te wake among the bltit. '
Take from mo, then, the spell of yonth,
And talent, if yon will j
Be eloquence, as now, unknown,
Andjrre&tne-, stranger lull;
Let riobei plnme their wibgs and fly
In their cspriciou, mood j
Let no kiad words of lore be mine,
But oh ! Ut oe be gooi.
"WB.Q IS YOUR FRIEKD ?"
st cie. a. aicis.
Vet he whe puts en friendship's gniee
To flatter to your face, '
' And says you are both just and U,
A paragon ef grace.
Kot he who comes when fortune smiles, ..
To rerel at your board; . '
And thus "lbs idle hours" bsgvile,
While riches you afford.' "
Kot he who comes with- solemn strains
And toll) what others de;
Aad of bis fellow-man complains
Beware, he talks of yoa. ,
Kot bs who says a snare ts laid
"I'll toll yon if you choose :"
Ofsueh a friend lam afraid;
- A rajKsw doih bring good news.
But he who loves you still the seme.
In sickness ss iu health;
'Ti he who merits friendship's asms,
Ia poverty er wealth.
And he who tries te hide yoer faults,
And bids you strive to uend;
Who in kin-loess doth your wrongs assault,
lie truly is your friend.
' A Good Josb. A loafer; while
slopping at a tavern up eoun ry, utd
to Itungc Aout thu b r and drink
oilier people' liquor. Not a glass
could le le'it alono lor a mim-ni, but
he would slip up, nud drink its con
tenia. One day a 8f.e driver came
in, an I calle d fur a atitf horn of bran
dy toddy. Jehu immediately played
posum bv leaving his brandy while
he sUpped lo the door. The bait took.
On returning he saw "Li pi .ss empty,
and exclaimed, with nil the diabolic
horror he cau'd nQ'ect,
- "Unndy and I'pium enough to kill
forty men! . Who drunk that piaeu?"
stasamered the loafer, ready
to yield up tb ghost witli.aiTrig'it,,
"You're b dead man!" eatd lie dri
ver. 'Wlat shall I do?" fcj8ir.ched Ihe
other, who thought liintsijf 9. g nu
"Down wiili pint of lamp o I, or
you're a dead man in three minute!"
answered the wicked driver. ' And
d jwn went the lamp oil, and up came
the brandy and opium, together with
his breakfast. The joke waa told, and
he has never drunk other people's If
rjuor since.- .-",'
dyQuWp says that women who insist
on the pririlcijes should exhibit the qual
ities of their sex. She Vbo shovs the
impudence of the rowdy, has na right
to expect the deference whiob is duu to
a lady In short, if a woman forgot tbo
dalicacy of bor. sx, no gcotloujau .is
bound to remcinher it for hor,
False happiness renders raen stern

times arrives from a superabundance)
of qnatities in themselves good from"
a eunsciene too sensitive, a taste too

will not eo so far as to say, with a li
