In this illustrated monthly can be found valuable genealogical information on the Joseph Loomis family. Loomis was the father of the Loomis family in America, sailing on "The Susan and Ellen" and arriving in Boston (Newtown) in 1638. The article written by a Loomis is invaluable, as the information, discovered a hundred or more years ago, has certainly been lost to many of the descendents of this family, and to find the book here is so great. I ordered it and cannot wait for its arrival.

Page 337 - This well may be The Day of Judgment which the world awaits ; But be it so or not, I only know My present duty, and my Lord's command To occupy till He come.

Bring in the candles.
Page 136 - Great GOD ! we thank thee for this home — This bounteous birthland of the free ; Where wanderers from afar may come, And breathe the air of liberty ! — Still may her flowers untrampled spring, Her harvests wave, her cities rise ; And yet, till Time shall fold his wing, Remain Earth's loveliest paradise ; THE WOMEN OF THE MAYFLOWER.

Page 576 - You know the rest. In the books you have read, How the British Regulars fired and fled, — How the farmers gave them ball for ball, From behind each fence and farm-yard wall, Chasing the red-coats down the lane, Then crossing the fields to emerge again Under the trees at the turn of the road, And only pausing to fire and load.
Page 401 - AT midnight, in his guarded tent, The Turk was dreaming of the hour When Greece, her knee in suppliance bent, Should tremble at his power ; In dreams, through camp and court, he bore The trophies of a conqueror ; In dreams his song of triumph heard. Then wore his monarch's signet ring, Then pressed that monarch's throne — a King ; As wild his thoughts, and gay of wing, As Eden's garden bird.
Page 623 - Life lies behind us as the quarry from whence we get tiles and copestones for the masonry of to-day. This is the way to learn grammar. Colleges and books only copy the language which the field and the work-yard made.
