consideration the great number of pikes all graveled and levI and no toll gates and fine school Uandbrick building no one should grumble at their tax Land sells in this Valley from to 8100 per acre I have trav eled the road from Seymour to Columbus five or six times and only two lit tie rises in tbe road from one city to the other It is a pleasure to travel over such roads I took toe advantage of

arrayed as no ly woman ever was arrayedqueenI jewelsonce shale it so that will fall off and you may sprInkle water over it as you please yet it can never be again what it was when the dew fell silently on it from Heaven On a frosty morning you may see panes of glass covered with a landscape mountains lakes trees blended in a beautif ulpicture Now lay your hand upon the glass and by the scratch of your finger or warmth of your hand that delicate tracery will be obliterated So there is in youth a beauty and purity of charity which when once touched and defiled cannever be restored a fringe more delicate than frostwork and which when torn and brokenvill never be embroidered- He who hath spotted and spoiled hi garments in youth though he may seek to make them white again can never wholly do it even were he to wash them with tears When ayoung man leaves his fathers house with the blessing ota mothers tears still wet upon his brow if he once lose the brow if he once lose that
