An Old Ciinoe.
Overgrown with briars brown.
Tangled grasses for its gown,
Hattorcd. torn, and weather-worn,
Long forgotten, lost, forlorn.
Cast-oil liko n worn-out shoe
An old rotting birch canoe.
Soft the Indian-Summer light
Fnding, dies to forest-night;
Great pines loom in growing gloom
And interloping day gives room
To shades nil silent, stalking through
The woods around an old canoe.

rules last year at M ; and how he likes to
go to "shows;'' and what a dandy wheel his
father gave him; and many other things of
equal interest to him. He then saunters
away whistling We'll have a hot time."

the first month; remark, if you will, about
the man who doesn't stand up for the TJni. in
athletics and oratory, forensic and otherwise,
discourse, as you please, about? slate officials
who "grab" the "plunks" of the common
wealth; dilate to satiety upon th'a domestic
relations of Chicago sausage grinders; but 1
can present a subject more contemptible still.
What of the individual who, like the hyena
on the battle field, hovel's about the hall till
the college papers are distributed that he may
