If I had my wish, a pink jellyfish Is the fellow I ' d choose to be, Adrift in space in the calm embrace Of a tideless, twilight sea. Mid the world ' s alarm, he fears no harm From carking care he ' s free; Though the sea -i- ' ull screams, he sleeps and dreams So tranquil of heart is he. When in hungry mood, he gathers his food As it floats obligingly near. And he don ' t have to think where to look for a drink. For never he lacks that cheer. No wiser sage ever conned a page Or taught us deeper lore, Than this peaceful fool in his deep, green pool On the sandy, shell-strewn shore. Then, oh, for the balm of the jellyfish calm! And, oh, for his placid mien! No knowledge of sorrow, no thought of tomorrow, Just drift through the days serene. L. F. W.

The furniture of the rooms, like that of the dinner table, was collected here and there, no two pieces being alike. As a general rule, these little makeshifts gave the girls no concern, but in one case there was cause of dis- content. Human nature, and especially school girl nature, does not change much. A mirror had by great exertion been procured for every room but one, and the unfortunate inmates of that room were doomed to make their toilets without that very necessary aid. Patience at last ceased to be a virtue, and with almost tearful entreaty they begged Miss Baldwin to try yet once again; they had looked at themselves in the water bowl until they were tired, and they did want a looking-glass. Miss Baldwin set out and r;turned triumphant, bringing the panel of an old fashioned clock in which was set a mirror. A friend to whom she told her trouble had unearthed it from the dust and cob- webs of her garret. No plate-glass mirror was ever received with such joyful acclamations. Yet with all their interruptions and inconveniences these young girls steadily trod the path of learning. What cared they if every girl in the arithmetic class did have a different text-book, so long as they had teachers capable of surmounting the difficulty? And what mattered it if their new pieces, the present glory of the music pupil, were leaves torn from an old song- book, so long as they were sung into the admiring ears of our handsome soldier boys? — Extracts from Joseph A. Waridell ' s History oj Mary Baldwin Seminary.
