Complete Sets of The Living Age,
At a Large Discount.
The publishers have a small number of Complete Sets of LITTELL'S LIVING AGE, which they offer at a large reduction from former prices.
As the Sets cannot be reprinted, the last opportunity is now offered not only to procure them cheaply, but to procure them at all.
The last number of the year 1872 completed the Fourth Series, and the One Hundred and lifteenth Volume, from the beginning of the publication. The regular price of volumes has been, in numbers, two dollars per volume, or, bound in cloth, three dollars per volume. The publishers now offer the Complete Sets (115 volumes), as follows:
In numbers, or sheets, ready for binding, at one-half the subscription price, viz: $1.00 per volume; or, bound in black cloth, gilt backs, at $1.75 per volume.
A few surplus Sets of the First Series (36 volumes), and of the Second Series (volumes), remain, which will be sold separately, at the same rate, if desired. None of the Third or Fourth Series can be sold separately, and the publishers can no longer supply any odd volumes, or numbers, published prior to Jan’y 1, 1868. A few of the Sets of the First Series, only, are bound in red leather backs, cloth sides, which will be sold to those preferring them to the cloth bound sets, at the same rate per volume. With this exception, those desiring a leather, or half leather binding, should purchase the numbers and have them bound in such style as they may prefer.
It is hardly necessary to say to those acquainted with the work, that the same amount of such valuable reading cannot otherwise be purchased with three times the money for which it is here offered ; and while this reduction in price places Sets within the reach of individuals possessing or forining private libraries, the attention of those interested in State, City, Town, College or School Libraries, is particularly called to this last opportunity of supplying their shelves with a complete work which it is believed no library in the country can (under this offer) afford to be without.
Applications for Sets should be made immediately.
When packing boxes are necessary in forwarding Sets, the cost of the boxes will be added to the bill.

A WINTER WEDDING.
Did never season fall so glad (At Chiselhurst Church, January 9, 1873.)
As that, before our corn was stored
(And now himself is reaped, and set BY THE AUTHOR OF JOHN HALIFAX, GENTLEMAN."
Safe in the garner of the Lord)?
God knows how fair a face can show
Flush'd in the golden evening's glow.
I mind the day the news was told, Whom Christ wash clean, and God make whole; And how the village heard the tale, And we stand in the light of two happy faces,
Our manhood with a lusty shout,
For I had none closely near
Only this playmate, and you know
We were no lovers, he and I:
And yet methinks I too was pale
At telling of yon woeful tale.
I mind the last long look he gave “God give them all that the dead man lacked Just as he turned him from the door, (As men dare judge him) in thought, word, act; My hand was throbbing from his touchDeny them all that to him was given,
Poor hand that throbbeth never more! Lest earth's doors opened, shut doors of heav- Look in my eyes this cheek is dry,
We were but friends to say good-bye. Blessed is the bridegroom without crown or land;
Now the night cometh - I shall sleep; Blessed is the bride with the ring on her hand. And he too sleepeth far away;
My dreams may picture me a face
Turned patient up to wait the day:
Sleep sweet upon the blood-stain'd sod, God makes happiness, God makes pain,
Dear playmate, that has gone to God! Summer and winter a good tree grows,
C. C. FRASER-TYTLER A strong soul strengthens through weal and "Be not afraid,” says the wild, sobbing wind; “ Weep,” sigh the clouds, “but the blue is behind.”
BRAMBLEBERRIES. Blessed is the bridegroom under shower or sun,
Two KINDS OF DISCONTENT.
A BASE and selfish discontent
That, cowardice and low desire
Fill with unrest;
This, the soul's longings that aspire When summer falleth, and the corn,
To find the Best. And now the places where he stood
Peer dimly through the misty morn; The hillock where the roses blow
TO AN ANGEL PICTURED LOOKING THROUGH Hath never roses now to show.
THE SKY. The pathway to the distanť town,
High Creature, watching twirl'd As ever, windeth low and high;
This cloudy world, And yet methinks it wears a look
See, for a seven times seven It wore not in the days gone by :
Refulgent Heaven, Maybe it is I wait to catch
What belts of hope and fear No footstep, and no lifted latch.
Involve our sphere,
Deep gloom, with fitful flash; Beside the window in the gloam
And be not rash I stand as I have stood before;
In blame, lest One discern I cannot sew, the light is done,
Thy need to learn Nor is there need to ope the door;
How man's faint orison For he that used to come, they say,
Strives to His Throne. Has travelled on another way.
