1» O 1£ X K v . For the Press.) Is it Miraugc, 1m It strange that the flower, Bpriuging up from the earth, Where uo depth of rich soil can be found, Should receive ol the life-giving juices & dearth, Should wither and die almost at its birth, Should gladden no cottage—should sweeten no hearth, With no full]|ierfeciioii bo crowned? Dear, dear, Is it strange no trait should appear? Is it strange that the stream that is born of o show er, With no living spring tor its source, Should give to the poor little perishing floret That grows on its brink, such a miserable dower, And rushing a wav, be lost in ttn hour, Leaving nothing to toil of its swill, pausing power, i • But a barren and desolate course/ Dear, dear, la it strange such streams disappear? Is it Btraugo that life’s web should be poor and un true. If tangled and knotted the thread? Its texture Imperfect—its pattern askew, The fabric, while yet it is seemingly new All thread-bare, and rusty and nearly worn through, II the shuttle with shoddy be fed? Dear, dear, Is it strange sad rents should appear? Is it strange that paste jewels should lose their soil light, And dim shonld become, when they’re old? That treasures which seem so charmingly bright, Which glitter and sparkle and dazzle the sight, With bright scintillations illumine the night. So soon should grow dull, and cease to delight, If pyrites bo taken for gold? Dear, dear, Is it strange that the gems are not clear? Oh Love! beauteous Lovo! the pure and the true, Filling the earth and the sky, Thou art ire6h every evening—each morning art new, Thou leadest us tenderly life’s Journey through, Strewing bright fragrant flowers, where sharp briers grew, And mingling sweet balm with bitterest rue, ’Tis only sham love that will die. «Joy» joy, Pure love, true lovo cannot cloy.

Eleclianecring in England. A story is troing about the London clubs of a candidate lor a vacant seat in Parliament. H? was walking through the stieets of the borough with his attorney, when a neutral voter was pointed out. ' The legal adviser said that the candidate had better tackle the voter at once. “What is his profession?” said the candidate. “1 am not sure,” was the re ply, “but I rather think that he is a truak maker.,’ “How do you do, how. do you do, my dear sir ?” says the candidate. “How very fortunate that I have made your acquaintance. Mrs. X. has been travelling about a good deal lately, and has worn out "her trunk. Please make me the very best trunk that you jiossi biy can.” “I am much flattered by your com mands,” said the voter, “but I am not a trunk maker.” “O yes, you are,” says the candi date. “No, iudeed, 1 am not,” says the voter. “Then, pray, what are you ?” says the candi date. “It you please, sir, I am a coffin maker.” “O, that will do just as well,” said Mr. X. the candidate. “Please make me a coffin; the very best coffin you possibly can.” The voter said: “Please, sir, you arc joking; now I don't like that.” Mr. X. in reply, “Never was more serious in my tile.” “Well,” says the voter, “all is lair in the way of business. But be good enough to give me a written order.”— “By all manner of means,” said Mr. X., who at once gave the written order. About a week afterwards a hearse with plumes and feathers drew up at a comforta ble family mansion in one of the London parks, and out came a coffin. The seivants were horrified, and declined to take the dark object indoors. The undertaker was inexora ble. Mr. X. was at dinner; and, being inter rogated by his servant, desired the coffin to be brought into the house. But where shall we put it, said Mrs. X.? Under the bed, said Mr. X. To this Mrs. X. decidedly objected.— Soon all tiic ser- auts came and began to in sinuate symptoms of giving warning. They could not think of abiding in the house with a cottin. Mr. X. then ordered it to he taken to htschambers in the <Teniple. On one of his friends asking him what he had done with his coffin, he admitted that lie bad put a whole set of voluminous law reports into it. The said candidate is likely to hear more of this when lie goes among his newly formed ac qualutanee in tlie borough. A Parisian Incident. The other day a wedding took place at the * Madeleine church m Paris, between a very no bic gentleman and lady, and among the gathered outside to see the splen (lid bridal p-rty was a miserable beggar about twelve years old. Now in l*aris every one wbo has not something to sell is carried off to a police house—if they stop in the streets • as this one did—and accordingly an officer was just asking her if she had anything to dispose of, and the poor thing was trembling iu every limb tor tear of imprisonment, when a sweet little girl, a sister of the bride, hap pened to overbear the policeman as she pas ed by. and to save the ragged otiender, she quickly placed in her hand a superb boquet she was carrying, and answering lor her said, ‘ie,, she has these flowers, but she asks too much and 1 cannot buy them.'’ As she turn ed to go on, an old gentleman, who saw and understood it all, stepped forward, and put mg a go d piece into the poor child's palm, Snf" TlU give ,we“tv francs for it," and presented it to the amiable little arum! bautiiru'rM1'^,^'1 '’-'Cantand graced*! garden?6 cho cest blos.som that ever International Telegraph company.

Mrs. Manchester—Dear Madam:—When you were in Bangor last summer, I called to sec you with a child of mine that had been sick for fonr years. 1 bad taken her to a number of i4iysiriaus, and none could tell what ailed lier or even her symptoms. You examined her ease, and told me exactly her symp toms from the commencement of her sickness, which were very peculiar; also told me that there was something alive in her, and also said there was a num ber of them, and told me that she drank them from a rain-matt r cistern. You said flu) yon wpiM not warrant a cure, but would try anjl do the test you could for her. She commenced taking your medicine in August last, and from that time until December, the oliiltl 1cm passed off large quantities of what we coll Tadpoles, from rain-water, and 1 think, und am certain that the child must have died had it not been for you. And 1 advise everybody to see Mrs. Man chester, for 1 know' tluit she lias the power of know ing the condition of a person diseased tetter than any peysieian thot 1 liavc ever heard of.

As Ttake cold very easily, 1 have had great opportunity to tost the virtues o' this valuable remedy, and it has never failed me l yet. however violent the disease.

Yours, W. K. BOWEN, 8G llunover St. CROUP. Mr??. J. R. Bitbsis, 114 East 23dSt, N.

At the instance of our pastor. Rev. Mr. Stiles, 1 tried Larookah’s Pulmonic Syrup, which promptly relieved them, and in a very short time they entirely recovered. In gratitude for tliy: benefit conferred, I cannot refrain from making tins testimony public.” WHOOPING COUGH. E. W. Mayer, of Carleton, N.

I gave him Laroo kah’s Pnimpilic Syrup according to dir ctions and soon began to see improvement. The Cough became easier— the expectoration freer, and in two weeks the malady was entirely overcome.” BRONCHITIS AND CATARRH. A. W.

While using your Syrup 1 have enjoyed better health tnan 1 iiad enjoyed lor years. 1 have had slight attacks of hoarseness, but the Syrup would soon remove it. 1 find it is a mild aud sate remedy also in Spasmodic Bilious attacks to which 1 am constitutionally sub ject.” E.

I believe the Syrup the surest remedy lor Pul monary Complaints that has ever been made avail able to the aliiieted.” CONSUMPTION WONDEKFUL CfTRE OF A CHILD TWO AND A HALF Years Old. Gents:—My grandchild, a little girl of 2 12 years old, was taken sick iu Portland, Me., in January. 185". No one could tell what was the mat ter with her. But she was much pressed lor breath; had a hard, tight cough; could not raise; her ihroat troubled her greatly; she seemed to he filling up, and though attended by the best physicians in Port land, they could not help her and she declined; and for some three months was not expected to live. Her doctors aud at length her friends gave up all hope s of her recovery. Slio was brought home to my house in Phipsburg, Me. We tried Cod Liver Oil, but tbe effect seemed rather opposite from good. She now could not move her hand, so reduced was she. 1 was taking Larookali’s Syrup at the time, and commenc ed giving it to her and in a week she showed quite a change lor the better, aud vve continued giving it to her. She gradually improved, aud is now a perfect ly healthy child. People were astonished to see what effect the medicine had on Huh cbil< 4 and to see her get well by the use of Larookah’s Syrup, which we believe lo be the best medicine tor Pulmonary Com plaints in the world. Yours, H. LARABEL, Phipsburg, Me. Space will permit the publication of but a tithe of the certificates which are constantly coming iu from all quarters of the globe.
