Tlie last rose of summer is dead, ,
And the leaves are now dead on the tree,
The hwcet woodland song-birds have lied
To the s-outli, with its wild balmy breeze.
i We havo roamed in the sweet-scented bow
Whe:: the woodlands in glorious array
Were gorgeously covered with tloweis',
But their beauty has all passed away.
And a .silence so painful mi sad
Falls pensive and deep in our heart ;
Not a t-ound, not a voice, that seems glad,
Do the wonders of natine impart.
And no with our summer-time joys.
They are s cut but they soon tias away ;
Some canker worm conies anil destroys
Their beauty or life in a day.
And then all Ik sadiu ss anil gloom,
Kclipscd is our summer of Joy,
And we sigh for a region of bloom,
Where naught can our pleasures destroy.
We cannot trust nature for bliss,
For all is deceptive and vain.
For what wo love best we first miss,
And the (lower never blossoms anain.
The sweet voice in silence is hushed,
Anil tho form almost angel-like lied:
No pleasure on eaith can we trust.
As we weep o'er the graven of our dead.
But when nature's Cod we shall tee,
in the beautiful land faraway,
ICternal our summer shall be,
And our joys never blight or decay.
In that land is no parting or pain.
And a cloud never shadows the kky;
It's the land where the loved meet again
Wc call It tho -sweet bye and bye."

There are in every city some young

see themselves, as others of different
tastes seo them, they would, had they
any respect for themselves or others,
most certainly desist. It might be
well for young men knowing themsel
ves given to tho uso of such detestiblo
language, to refrain hereafter and cul
