encircled by the Alps and the sea, boundaries marked out by the finger of God for a people of giants. And you must be such, or nothing. Let not a man of that twenty-four millions remain excluded from the fraternal bond which shall join you together; let not a look be raised to that Heaven, which is not that of a free man. Love humanity. You can only ascertain your own mission from the aim placed by God before humanity at large. Beyond the Alps, beyond the sea, are other peoples, now fighting, or preparing to fight, the holy fight of independence, of nationality, of liberty; other peoples striving by different routes to reach the same goal. Unite with them,—they will unite with you.

And love, young men, love and reverence the Ideal; it is the country of the spirit, the city of the soul, in which all are brethren who believe in the inviolability of thought, and in the dignity of our immortal natures. From that high sphere spring the principles which alone can redeem the peoples. Love enthusiasm,—the pure dreams of the virgin soul, and the lofty visions of early youth; for they are the perfume of Paradise, which the soul preserves in issuing from the hands of its Creator. Respect, above all things, your conscience; have upon your lips the truth that God has placed in your hearts; and, while working together in harmony in all that tends to the emancipation of our soil, even with those who differ from you, yet ever bear erect your own banner, and boldly promulgate your faith.

Such words, young men, would the martyrs of Cosenza have spoken, had they been living amongst you. And here, where, perhaps, invoked by our love, their holy spirits hover near us, I call upon you to gather them up in your hearts, and to make of them a treasure amid the storms that yet threaten you; but which, with the name of our martyrs on your lips, and their faith in your hearts, you will overcome.

ENTERTAINMENT.

Supposing.

HELEN WAITHMAN.

They met beneath a tree and lingered talking,

Her eyes were very sweet and clear and blue; He said, “Supposing we continue walking,

For I should like so much to talk to you.” She answered with a blush and softly smiling,

"Supposing-we—supposing that we do."

He said, "If I should tell you that I love you,

Have loved you long and tenderly and true, Supposing—I am only just supposing

That you for answer said, 'I love you too ?'” The answer came softly through the twilight,

“Supposing—ah-supposing that I do ?”

а

He said, “If I should ask

you

for kiss dear, And were not quite content with one or two, I wonder, would you take it much amiss, dear

Supposing, pretty sweetheart, that I do ?” The answer, like echo of a whisper

“Supposing—oh—supposing that you do."
