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 rise.

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
Ilail meek ey'd maiden clad in sober gray
Whose soft approach the weary woodınan loves
As homeward bent to kiss his prattling babes
Jocund he whistles through the twilight groves

Scard at thy frown terrific fly
Self-pleasing follies' idle brood
Wild laughter noise and thoughtless joy
And leave us leisure to be good,
