No sound of hammer e'er was heard

My rastle In Spain Is built of dreams,
Of fancies fair and free;
Of hoe that ever brightly beams,
Of Jujs I yet nisy see.
And when my heart is worn with care,
With strife and toil and pain;
I leave them snd go swiftly where
My csKtle stands in Spain.
There dwell the days of my lot youth.
With each high hoi fulfilled;
There ahllies full-orbed each sacred truth,
That through my life ha thrilled;
There wait fur me my loved and lost.
With all life's Joys attained.
Life's Kiihlcon In safety crossed,
And all life's empire gained.
The little rares that round my soul
Like little snakes have curled
Uncoil and loose earh poisoned fold,
Outside that fairer world;
Old sorrows dead, old paina forgot.
Old grief come not again,
The beat burn not, the cold chills not.

Oh. Ship of Thought, that leaves behind
The lightning and the light.

that Mils ailment Is a stopimge of the

worse than uselows. Thus, the opium
treatment relieves pain and discomfort,

decitk- not only as to the diagnosis, but
a to the result nnd course probably of
