stream. "Twas long ere the dark clouds quite pass'd away From the high mountain summits, but at length The glorious sunshine scatter'd them afar, Careering in the greatness of his strength; And then I mark'd that on Llewellyn's height, And Carnedd Davydd, and on Snowdon's brow, Fairer than moonbeams, purer than the dew, There rested a bright diadem of snow. Do we not marvel oft when sorrow comes In springtide or the summer hours of life? Mourn we not sadly o'er some cherish'd one Whose lot it is to brave the tempest's strife? Ah, let us hush our murmurings-true, the clouds Óf earthly woe from earth's dark scenes arise; But, though they shroud awhile the Christian's path, Sunlight shall chase them soon-the sunlight of the skies. TRIFLES. HARD words mostly flow from soft heads. THERE is more to do with one jackanapes than all the bears. THREE things affect a man's spirits:-A dull day, an empty pocket, and being in love. THE most fashionable way of using books is to serve them as men do lords-learn their titles, and brag of their acquaintance. BISHOP BUTLER Says:-"A sot is like a statue in a moist air-all the lineaments of his humanity are mouldered away with the moisture. AN American paper says:-We have a correspondent in the West country who writes us such long letters that they never reach us. A MAN'S character is frequently treated like a grate-blackened all over first, to come out the brighter afterwards. D-E-B-T are the initial letters of "Dun Every Body Twice." C-R-E-D-I-T are the initial letters of "Call Regularly Every Day-I'll trust." PLATO compared his wise master, Socrates, to the gallipot of an apothecary, which had on the outside apes, owls, and satyrs, but within, precious drugs.

P chain is to turn, and must be made at the end of every row, otherwise one stitch would be diminished. This chain must never be worked into.) The Boot is to be worked in idged crochet, which is the same as the ordinary Dc, only, after having worked a row, turn it on the reverse side, and work every row into the lower loop instead of the upper. Now work 10 rows, or 5 ridges, of this crochet, increasing in the centre 1 chain of every row, as in the 6th loop of foundation row; then make 1 chain to turn, and join on the White with a weaver's knot, and work 8 rows or 4 more ridges. (The ridge is complete when it terminates the same side as the end of the foundation.) Then work another half row, as far as the 1 chain in the centre of the front, which will be 23 stitches; but not increase in this 1 chain. Then make 13 chain, turn, and De down this to where the 13 chains commence, and also into the 1 chain. (There should be only 12 stitches, as the 13th was the turn stitch.) Then continue to work the ridged crochet to the end of the front; then turn, and continue working ridged crochet for the half of the leg, working 20 rows, or ten ridges; then cut off the wool to within four inches. Then commence for the other side of the leg, working De down the leg, on the 12 chain; then down the front, having only 23 stitches on the front, and work the same number of rows as the first side of the leg. Then, with needle and White wool, join up the leg behind on the wrong side, joining every loop together, but not so tight as to cause the wool to snap with stretching. For the Border which turns over the top. With Pink make a chain of 63 stitches, and unite. (This chain must be made of sufficient length to go round the top; but as the size of this depends on the manner the Boot is worked, the number of stitches must be left, in some measure, to the Worker's judgment-so that it is an uneven number.) Then work 3 rows of De round this; but in the last two rows, in the centre loop of whatever number of stitches there may be, increase, by working 1 Dc, 1 chain, 1 Dc, more into same loop. Then take the White work 2 stitches White and 2 of Pink al 30 ASTRY ternately, without increasing; then a row of White without increase. Then the Pink Fringe must be worked thus:- Make a De stitch in one loop of last row, then 1 chain, then draw the loop that is now on the hook through, of sufficient length for the loop of fringe, which should be rather more than an inch in length, that is, two inches the double length; then withdraw the hook from this double loop, place it through the chain, and through the next stitch of Border; now repeat from *. This border must be sewed on the wrong side of Border, but right side of Boot, to the top of the leg. OPEN-WORKed knitted STOCKING FOR A CHILD. NEEDLES No. 21. No. 40 Evans's Boar's Head Cotton. For the Sote. Make 15 chain, turn back, having previously made the 1 chain at the end, and work sufficient rows in De backwards and forwards, but not in ridged crochet (28 rows will be sufficient, but this, again, depends on the manner the Boot is worked). Then for three rows decrease one stitch at every row, break off the wool; commence at the other end, and decrease a stitch every row for 3 rows. Then sew the sole very neatly, inside of the Boot, and carefully run in the ends.
