Sp anb otun the Coaet [Selected]. THE FA EM. The blackbird's song, the farm gate's click-a-clack; The smaiil birds' twitter in the eaves and thatch; The swift wind swishes through the wavy grass, Ducks gobble, cocks crow, far away dogs bar k Children's voices and sounds of joTting carts, The tinkle, tinkle of the sprawling stream, Rattle of horse chains, the moo and low of cows, Clang of milking cans, the bleatings of sheep, The housewife's shrill call and the maid's reply, And the tick, tick, tick of the brass-faced clock; Over all sunshine and the floating clouds. Then nightfall and the work of day is done. PULSING LIFE. Once more the hedgerows in the lanes are green, Once more the winter's harshness turns to mellow. New-mated birds their ruffled feathers preen, And fields late ashen grey are tinted yellow. Behind the sod and husk and fur and feather Is pulsing life responding to spring weather. OBSERVATIONS. Men despairingly pray to God to give them blessings which are placed within easy reach of them. Men make wars and then foolishly pray to be saved from the disastrous conse- quences of their own acts. It is absurd to spend one half of life in struggling for riches or power and the other half in wondering why you are not possessed of happiness which has nothing to do with either. The ostentatious display of the rich is an attempt to purchase from the poor something which the possession of wealth does not confer. It may require greater power to control an appetite or a passion than to rule a kingdom. A wise man would not exchange his obscurity and seclusion for all the glitter and parade of kings and princes. The sea. and the sky and the hills and the woods have said mora to me than all the books I have ever read. There is much that I think I need, but i,ery little that I think is worth what it would cost to get. The best thing for a fool is his forly. To force wisdom upon him would only make him miserable. The marvel of folly is that it cures itself in the long run. The Coast J.G.
