To-day we were working in the
hay harvest. Whilst some of the
halo of the poet is destroyed by the
vigorous use of the-fork and rake
and mower, yet the “ sweet scented

an excellent crop of grass because
of a few weeds ? This would be
the height of folly. Or shall we
aver that our meadows are all
weeds ? No. This would be a
plain prevariation. But thia is -
