Oi ««ih| udcracify
i world!" from ancient days
( e'er has been its r~
Or kiadto martyr' fane;
While ell God's earth that flower «round.
Hare eeboed forth with song and sound,
That man was made to lore.
It caaaot watch thee from my soali
It eaaaoteraahthee there!
Hor d^At tilia thaitewaid thee roll
' Thai soul wiAlt thine to share.
Within the hidden caree of earth j
Where tidea unseen, whose ware* unheard,
▲re Ska my love for thee.
Reoeipt For Happiness.
Just wealth enough to keep away
Of want the direful scene;
Jast health enough to gild the day,
And make life's course serene;
Virtue enough to act that part
Whiefc is devoid of sia;
Courage enough to aak the heart,
"Art thou secure within?"
The Trianon morning attire is the
simplest and prettiest summer ideas,
oi which the following is the receipt:
—Take a plain white or rtraw col-
~ cotton or muslin material; have
nnderakiit made with flounce
the bottom either pleated or
téd on the crgss with a frill at' the
heading. Have a waist or bodice
mad* high, with somewhat tight
sleeves and at tbe cuff and armholer,
- trimmed round with small frill.
Than have a fichn, just large enough
to come down to tbe waist and frilled
rostid in keeping with tbe under-
akirt; and sciurf ends with a bow are
also frilled for behind. The over-
skirt will b* Dade plain in front
but will he tied np at the back by
means of tapes sewn on seauis under-
neath at distances not far down from
tb^ waist. A pique, with pinked
' 4ot ruche, somewhat fnll and called
chicotee in French (endive), which is
■lade with light taffeta, produces a
rich and pastoral effect. A white
twill than trimmed with hlne, or a
straw colored or maize liuen material
with black, is very good style.
Straw hats worn with these des*
habillea are raised on one side and
have a handsome flower in front.
Some of tbe summer Louis XV. des-
habilled ale made quite loose, with
deep folds from tbe neck downwards,
and ara looped over colored «lips,
mite muslin thuB trimmed with,
pink, ever pink, is the great reception

The Compost Heap.—The most
important thing for any man who
cultivates a garden is to have an
abundance of manure. While many
think their soil rich enongb without
manure, we bave never seen any yet
that was too good, or tbat manare
would not greatly help in most pro-
ductions of the" garden, and we will
add, of the field. The heap should
he tbe receptacle of everything in and
•boot the premises that will add Value
to it. Weeds that have not gone to
seed, the «weepings of the stable and
yard, tbe night soil, all th- bones from
the bouse, everything of this cbar
scter, should be gathered op and tbe
heap should he forked once every
month or two till tbe mass is thorough-
ly mixed. When ready, nse at dis-
cretion, yon will hardly place it
where it will not yield a kuger return.
When one* a concealment or deceit
baa been practised in matters where
ait ahottld be fair and open as tbe day,
coufidence can never be restored,
any move than yen can restore the
bloom to the grape or tbe plum tbat
yon bave once pressed in your hand.
Ma Kino VtxEGAR—To one gallon
of molaases add nine gallons of soft
water, and pnt the mixture in an
open beaded barrel . It should then
hie stirred, and the barrel covered «nth
. a cloth and board, that nothing but
the air can get in,
