Such as these have lived and died! LONGFELLOW-Footsteps of Angels. The good one, after every action closes His volume, and ascends with it to God. The other keeps his dreadful day-book open Till sunset, that we may repent; which doing, The record of the action fades away, And leaves a line of white across the page. Now if my act be good, as I believe, It cannot be recalled. It is already Sealed up in heaven, as a good deed accomplished.

The rest is yours.

LONGFELLOW-Christus, The Golden
Legend. Pt. VI.

All God's angels come to us disguised;
Sorrow and sickness, poverty and death,
One after other lift their frowning masks,
And we behold the seraph's face beneath,
All radiant with the glory and the calm
Of having looked upon the front of God.
i. LOWELL-On the Death of a Friend's
Child. Line 21.

An angel stood and met my gaze,
Through the low doorway of my tent;
The tent is struck, the vision stays

I only know she came and went.

Thus use your frog: put your hook, I mean the arming wire, through his mouth, and out at his gills, and then with a fine needle and silk sew the upper part of his leg with only one stitch to the arming wire of your hook, or tie the frog's leg above the upper joint to the armed wire; and in so doing use him as though you loved him.

ს. WALTON-The Complete Angler. Pt. I. Ch. V.

We may say of angling as Dr. Boteler said of strawberries: "Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did ;" and so, if I might be judge, God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling.

ANIMALS.

The jackal's troop, in gather'd cry,
Bay'd from afar complainingly,
With a mix'd and mournful sound,
Like crying babe, and beaten hound.
