What life and death, what love and pain, What nights of gloom and days of gold, Have passed beneath their leafy reign Yet still their ancient pride they hold, Still tower oer roof and slope and plain, And link the new years to the old. FOR two hundred years the have been growing on a grassy bank in Newton, Massachusetts. Harps for the winds, they have thrilled to the breath of June, or bent in the blasts Under tbe Old Elms. of December.

Fearing the parson would have finished his opening exer cises before I should reach the corner of the great square pew where he Under the Old Elms. always looked to see me, and from which I was seldom absent, I alighted and broke froma tree by the roadside a small elm sapling, which would serve as an incentive to old Dobbin to hasten his steps.
