such unusual beauty, grandeur, and
fascinating loveliness, as to hold the
visitor wrapt in astonishment and awe,
entranced by scenery midst which an-
goels might dwell in contentment.
Bee trees, although now rarely found
there, were once so common in South-
west Missouri that the oioneers in that
section, contracted honey in any desir-
o'd quantity to the local merchants
without ever going into the wools to
locate the supply. It was no trouble to
find a wild swarm of bees anywhere.-

Mr. Gasaway-I shall never marry
unless I find a young lady who is in all
resneots exactly my opposite.
Nellie Chafie-In that case I don't
understand why are not married al-
ready. There are any number of girls
who are intelligent and handsome.-

Or a mother's prayer to teaven,
Or only a beggar's grateful thanks
For a culp of water given.
Better to weave in the wet, of life
A bright and golden filling,
And to do God's will with a ready heart,
And hands that are switt and willing,.
Than to snap the delicate silver threads
Of our curious lives asunder,
And then blame heavei for the tangled ends.
And sit to grieve and wonder,
