The Coquette's Valentine.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

WHAT shall I write in this valentine?

The old refrain, "My heart is thine";

The sweetest flower of rarest hue,

Is paltry when compared with you"?

No, no, I'll write in grander strain,

And throw aside that old refrain.

What shall I write in this valentine?

O for a laurel, the conqueror's sign!

Many a hope, full many a heart,

Hath fallen before thy Cupid's dart;

Many a victim bowed to thy rule,

And played his part in the lover's school.

Ay! twine a wreath of fairest flowers,

With here and there, from bygone hours,

Some withered rosebud, some crumpled glove,

That seemed a pledge of faithful love;

And as you crown your haughty head,

May you find a cypress wreath instead!

A MEETING of the '76 and '77 editors of this paper will be held at No. 9 Holworthy, on Monday, at 3.30 P. M.

THE Captain of the University Crew has sent out lists of daily training to the different applicants. The list includes one thousand strokes at the weights, and either a four-mile run or a two-mile walk.

MANY a word of deep and mystic meaning

Hidden in a dark and curious speech,

In the hours of thought and contemplation,

Finds the hearer's heart within its reach.

Many a maid with fond and laughing glances

Weighs her answer with a no and yes,

Leaving to her lover's ardent fancy

Right and power and privilege to guess.

Thus hath Nature hid her many mysteries

In a rich and ever-varying guise,

Open to the lover of her secrets,

To the contemplation of the wise.

EDITOR MAGENTA: "Percy Starke" sends this ingenious Chess puzzle, found pasted on the back of an old Chess Book. By beginning at the right word, and going from square to square as a Knight moves, he found eight lines of poetry.

Yours truly,

S. F. STEARNS.
