Mr. John Burns has made his will. The docu-

sound constitution to his son, his books to his
parish, and his debts to his country.
Messrs. Harland and Woolf, the great Bel-

largest ship in the world. The vessel is 2o,000
tons, and will carry 3000. She was built for the
Hamburg-American line, and is named the

He hears in the sluices the water rushing As the buckets drain and the doors fall back : When the early dawn in the east is blushing, He is limping still round the old, old track.
Now he pricks his ears, with a neigh replying To a call unspoken, with eyes aglow,
And he sways and sinks in the circle, dying ; From the ring no more will the grey horse go.

And the bush creeps back on a worked-out claim, And then sleepy crows in the sun sit dreaming On the timbers grey and a charred hot frame,

See the old horse take, like a creature dreaming, On the ring once more his accustomed place ; But the moonbeams run on the ruins screaming Shows the timbers and grass-grown brace.
Yet he hears the sled in the smithy falling, And the empty truck as it rattles back,
And the boy who stands by the anvil, calling ; And he turns and backs, and he " takes up slack."

And with hanging head by the bow he ponders
Where the whim boy's gone—why the shifts don't come.

HE'S an old grey horse, with his head bowed
sadly,
And with dim old eyes and n queer roll aft,
With the off-fore sprung and the hind screwed
badly
And he bears all over the brands of graft ;
And he lifts his head from the grass to wonder
Why night and day now the whim is still,
Why the silence is, and the stampers thunder
Sounds forth no more from the shattered mill.
In that whim he worked when the night winds
On the riven summit of Giant's Hand,
And by day when prodigal Spring had yellowed
All the wide, long sweep of enchanted land ;
And he knew his shift, and the whistle's warning,
And he knew the calls of the boys below ;
Through the years, unbidden, at night or morning,
He had taken his stand by the old whim bow.
But the whim stands still, and the wheeling swallow
In the silent shaft hangs her home of clay,
And the lizards flirt and the swift makes follow
O'er the grass-grown brace in the summer day;
And the corn springs high in the cracks and corners
Of the forge, and down where the timber lies
And the crows are perched like a band of mourners
On the broken hut on the Hermit's Rise.
