Tlie June number of Harper's
Magazine gives the readers of tbat
attractive periodical a pleasant sni
prise. The pages have been increased
in width and the type is larger and
handsomer than the old. No change
is made in the external appearance of
the magazine, the tint and the design
.of the cover having been retained.
The increased size of the page alfords
better scope for illustration a feature
for which Harper's is distinguished
both for the quality and the number
of the wood engravings that adorn its
pages. With this beautiful and at
tractive number the magazine begins
in its fifty-ninth semi-annual volume.

There are so many strange freaks in
published in 1448, and republished in
1641. It is as follews:
Carriages without horses shall go,
And accidents till the world with woe ;
Around the earth thoughts shall fly,
Jn the twinkling of an eye;
The world upside down shall be,
A nil gold be found at the root of a tree,
Through hills man shall ride,
And no horse be at his side:
Under water maw shall walk,
Shall ride, shall sleep, shall talk;
In the air man shall be seen,
In black, in white, in green;
Iron in the water shall float,
As easily as a wooden boat ;
Gold shall be found and shown,
In a land that's not now known :
Fire and water shall wonders do,
England shall at last admit a foe;
The world at an end shall come.
In eighteen hundred and eighty-one.
Swallows Homeward Fly.
"One swallow does not make a sum
mer." But many do. One can see
hundreds of them twittering over a
moist spot in the roadway and alight
ing to collect mortar for their nests.
The swallow is a mason. He glues
his nest under the eaves of a house,
and if there is a knot-hole or open
window, he goes inside and chooses a
ratter wiiere tlie coupieounu aim rear;
Mimr voimir. One mav see along the '
sea-shore the soft chalk rock, perfora
ted with holes which these swallows
had made for nests. Sometimes a dry
bank is chosen for the same purpose.
But when the June days come the
horizon towards evening, is flecked all
over u ith sailing sv. allows. The whole
insect tribe is aiive and astir, and they
go upward with the warm columns of
air. He takes his supper as he sails.
Ever3r one of his motions at that time
is controlled by his desire to "whoop
'em up!" He opens his mouth like
the mouth of an India rubber bag,
and on the wing himself, takes his
game on the wing, and has one long
frolic at supper time. By the millions
of swallows sailing over head at even
time, know that summer has come.
The fly, the mosquito, the junebug
find it out to their cost every evening.
Summer has come at last.
