READING.–LESSON 23.

The 137th Psalm.
1. Where Babylon's proud waters roll',

In exile', we sat down to weep';
For thoughts of Zion', o'er our soul',
Came like departed joys of sleep',
Whose forms to sad remembrance risé.

Though lost, forever, from our eyes'.
2: Our harps upon the willow hung',
Where', worn with toil', our limbs reclin'd'; .
The chords', untun'd and trembling,' rung?
With mournful music to the wind'. .
While foes', insulting o'er our wrongs',

Cry'd,' "sing us one of Zion's songs'.
3. How can we sing the song we love',

Far from our own delightful land?
If I prefer thee not above
My chiefest joy', may this right hand,

Jerusalem', forget her skill',
My tongue lie mute', my pulse lie stills

EXERCISES IN PUNCTUATION. LESSON 24:
When life as opening bud is sweet
And golden hopes the fancy greet
And youth prefers its joys to meet
Alas how hard it is to die
When trembling limbs refuse their weight
And films stow gathering Çim the sight

And clouds obscure the mental light

Oh what a precious boon to die IIail meek ey'd maiden clad in sober gray Whose soft approach the weary woodman loves As homeward bent to kiss his prattling babes Jocund he whistles through the twilight groves

Scar'd at thy frown terrific fly

Self-pleasing follies' idle brood · Wild laughter noise and thoughtless joy

and leave us leisure to be good,
