Summer, with her gleaming wings,
To the coming Autumn sings,

Chanting all her wrong
Autumn, in her robes of gold,
Showering wealth from cvery fold,

Listens to her song.

“Sister, tell me, tell me why
Now has come my time to die?

Why must I sorrow ?
Hidden in the darksome grave
Is there nothing that can save ?

Is there no morrow ?

"Joy and beauty I bestow Freely on the earth below,

Yet I breathe my last." Autumn, bending low, replied : “I will hasten to thy side

When my time is past.

"Fleck'd with white the moaning sea
Weeps a requiem for thee,

Sighing in sadness.
Flowers around thy tomb shall cling ;
Rest thee, then, until the Spring
Wakes thee in gladness."

-The Academy.

CIDENTS AND ACCIDENTS OF THE JOURNEY. It was a merry party of Brooklyn teachers and a few outside friends which started from Jersey City, July 3d, to attend the National Educational Association at Denver. As I reached Jersey City that warm July day, I found all our party there waiting for the gates to be opened; there was the usual greetings of friends as they arrived, then came the call to start, the usual good-byes now said, a few tears shed as a beloved daughter said good-bye to a dear old mother left behind, the usual promises to write and the loving injunctions to “take good care of yourself,” and then the stepping out to the platform to our special car waiting for use, the usual rush for our seats, al. ready engaged, the placing of wraps, bags and bundles, etc., a few last good-byes, and the bell rang, the whistle blew and we were fairly started on our long journey.

I ponder if people in general know what a jolly crowd teachers are when they are out of the treadmill of every day school life and off for a two months vacation. I doubt it, and I wish you could all have enjoyed as I did the quick repartee, the genuine wit and bright stories they told; making every one happy and doing all they possibly could to make those of us who were not teachers and every day companions feel at home and comfortable in their midst.

There was a dining car in, of course, which some patronized, and others took lunches which provided for a part of the journey, we had planned our money so as to use it to the best possible advantage that we might see all we could with the money at our disposal, and many chose to take lunches and so save a large item on the journey.

I must not spend time to discuss these merry lunches, the demands on the porter to bring hot water to make coffee, tea or bouillon, the good things eaten in true Bohemian style, but basten on to describe in a very meagre fashion some points of interest on our way to Denver.

We went via the Erie R. Ř. from Jersey City to Cincinnati without stopping. Reaching Cincinnati at about four o'clock the 4th of July, some of us hired carriages and drove for two hours around the city. Such a smoky city! The buildings are really fine, but 80 vered by smoke that it is hard to believe them 80. We had not time to drive out into the suburbs where the wealthier residents live, so we had to content ourselves with the business portion of the city, which I presume looked dirtier than usual, for the streets and side. walks were covered with the remains of the Fourth, and little children of all conditions, color and nationalities were constantly adding to the debris. After our drive we again boarded our car and the next morning early we found ourselves in St. Louis, in time for a hearty breakfast. Then the party dispersed to amuse themselves about the city for the entire day, as we were not to leave St. Louis until late in the evening.
