Стр. 112 - The sky is changed! - and such a change! Oh night, And storm, and darkness, ye are wondrous strong, Yet lovely in your strength, as is the light Of a dark eye in woman!

Not from one lone cloud, But every mountain now hath found a tongue, And Jura answers, through her misty shroud, Back to the joyous Alps, who call to her aloud!

Like a lion growling low, — Like a night-storm rising slow, — Like the tread of unseen foe, — It is coming, — it is nigh ! Stand your homes and altars by ; On your own free thresholds die. Clang the bells in all your spires ; On the gray hills of your sires Fling to heaven your signal-fires.
Стр. 218 - The next arrival brought nearly half a million to the insolvents, but it was too late ; they were ruined, because their agent, in remitting, had been behind time. A condemned man was being led out for execution. He had taken human life, but under circumstances of the greatest provocation, and public sympathy was active in his behalf. Thousands had signed petitions for a reprieve...
Стр. 243 - Little deeds of kindness, Little words of love, Make our earth an Eden, Like the heaven above.
Стр. 215 - KIND words can never die ; Cherished and blest, God knows how deep they lie Stored in the breast...
Стр. 217 - The conductor was late, so late that the period during which the down train was to wait had nearly elapsed; but he hoped yet to pass the curve safely. Suddenly a locomotive dashed into sight right ahead. In an instant there was a collision. A shriek, a shock, and fifty souls were in eternity; and all because an engineer had been "behind time.
