By dock and slip and bonding willow sweep its noiscless waters. But wheti we reach the windiu;lrook, singinif over the white, shining iebtles, inurmurinjt around tlie VMUf rocks, wliisifiiiir through the swayinj leeds, we sit dmvn and listen, and the iiuisic and i Imnii of its inressanl babble drive away every care and every though of soitow aud trouhle. Who U t th:i said the miificof runnino: water produce in a mild insanity .i gomething like that? 'l'rue It is, "the shallows niuiniur but the deeps are dumb," and so we lov the shallows.
