No more the primrose fair Is seen ,
Upon ( he grass the white hoar frost
Has left Its markm And In the vale
Are wrecks of battles , won and lost ,
Twixt roses red and rotes pale.
Still there are joys In this old time ,

The things which keep out winter * rime

The edncatlon of deaf mutes has made
remarkable progresi during the last de
cade , and it teems highly probable that the
old system of talking by signs Is about to
undergo a revolution or to be entirely dis
pensed with. A few years ago an attempt
was made in the Clark institution for
deaf mutes , at Northampton , Massachu
setts , to teach the inmates an articulate
speech , and from the recently issued re
port now before us seems that the effort has
passed the stage of experiment and has
been crowned with the most trratifjlni ;
success. Thn report contains numerous
letters from former pupils who were un
able to express any thought by articulate
sounds when they entered the institution ,
but they are now able to make themrelves
understood. One writes from New York
that every girl In the packing room , where
she works , understands all she says , and
she can understand thorn by the system of
lip reading. Another , a dressmaker , writes :
"I work from 8 in the morning to 8 at
night , so you see that there is little time
left for my recreation. I do not know
whether I have gained In lip reading and
speech , bat I think I have gained more in
lip reading than speech. My mother ,
slaten , and brothers nay that my speech is
very peed , and they can understand every
word I say. My employers can understand
all I say , and I can read their lips well. "
