NEW THOUGHTS.

By Lilian Wooster Greaves

Ages agone God's finger touched & star, And. like a runner eager for the nace,

The light leaped o'er the wide-spread

fields of space.

The centuries had left their gates .ajar. Milleniums were mountains to be passed;

Planets the lampe that lit each heavenly

street ;

Meteors the dust beneath his flying

feet;

Aeons were deserts crossed; until at

last

The i>mner, all unwearied, reached his

goal.

Hailey thc fair earth, and lit my lattice

pane.

Tlie old eternal law is ever 6o

The newest thought that luminates a

soul,

Th« latent truth to penetrate a brain God touched t\iem into being long ago.

* » » *

Not Science with his many-leu sed <f*a

Not Labour with bis super-cunning hand. Can tell us ought God's wisdom had not

planned.

Can build us aught that can Hts power

defy.

Man's newest thoughts are older than

the hi"*.

The wave that breaks., upon to-day'a

bright shore

Brines messages from all tho seas ,of

vore.

Each modern moment, ancient law ful-

fils.

O blessíd Bible-book! O wosdrovfi

Word!

No secret of the seer, saint or sage.

No nropheev from Nature's .farthest

field.

No utterance in Truth's high temph

hfeBrd.

Bot al' wes writ upo'i thv golden page, And newly every morning stands re-

vealed- ?

It was announced last week that Mr. T. P. Draper, K.C. would enter on hia duties as a Judge of the Supreme Court on May

1 next.
