LISTENING.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

I AM listening for the echoes,

As they tremble in the gloom, -

Ere they seek the final slumber,

Of the lonely silence's tomb.

Listening while the joyful paean

Fills with hope the weary heart,

Or the gentle chord of sorrow

Bids the throbbing tear to start.

Listening for a tread that comes not,

For a voice that speaks no more,

For the welcome word that tells us

That the waiting time is o'er.

Listening, waiting, hoping, praying,

As the daylight fades to gray,

Sink to rest the vesper echoes,

In the dreamland far away.

ANY one who has in his possession any of the foot-balls belonging to the University Eleven will please return them to 51 Thayer.

SCENE, Friday dinner. - 1ST BOARDER (on discovering a piece of ham in his fish). Well, I'll be dashed if they don't fry their fish in ham!

2D BOARDER (scorning such extravagant conclusion). Fry, man? Why, that was the bait.

SCENE, Pluto's den. - D-N. Well, Mr. X., I sent you six summonses last week; why did n't you come?

SENIOR (affecting great surprise). Why, I thought attendance was voluntary at everything but examinations and prayers!
