nterpart. The rose that makes the summer fair, The velvet robe that sovereigns wear, The red revealment could not spare. And men who conquer deadly odds By fields of ice, and raging floods, Take the red passion from the gods. Now, Love is red, and Wisdom pale, But human hearts are faint and frail Till Love meets Love, and bids it hail. I see the chasm, yawning dread; I see the flaming arch o'erhead: I stake my life upon the red. J. W. H.

We have seen that little Julia Ward began her ministrations in the nursery. At eight years old she was adjuring her little cousin to love God and he would see death approaching with joy. At eleven she was writing her Invitation to youth :-- Invitation to youth! Oh! let thy meditations be of God, Who guides thy footsteps with unerring eye; And who, until the path of life is trod, Will never leave thee by thyself to die. When morning's rays so joyously do shine, And nature brightens at the face of day, Oh! think then on

nt, Stop a minutes she cries. I cannot bear it! --and the reader must pause while she gathers courage to face disaster with the hero, or dash with him through peril to safety. She would almost be sorry when the doorbell announced a visitor; almost, not quite, for flesh and blood were better than fiction. If the caller were a familiar friend, how her face lighted up! Oh! Now we can have whist! The table is brought out, the mother-of-pearl counters (a Cutler relic: we remember that Mr. Ward did not allow cards in his house!), and the order for the rest of the evening is A clear fire, a clean hearth, and the rigor of the game! -- It was a happy day when, as chanced once or twice, Mr. Ernest Schelling, coming on from New York to play with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, offered to come and play to her, all by herself, whatever she wanted, and for as long as she liked.
