No. 31.- Rirtdle. I am ever in gight With all that is bright, Eut I melt in a laugh or a sigh, Though I'm bidden by night, I am taken in flight, While 1 cling to whatever is nigh. I am found with the sought, And I'm held with those caught, And am shadowed in many designs. I am lost much in thought, Though I am silent for nonght, But signal my presence in .signs. I am mom with the rough, And dumb with the tough, And glum when I'm canght in a plight, Close moutbed with enongh, Without breath for a songh, And still I am found in the right. No. 33. - Tile Box Prohlm. A roerchant had a certain line of goods vrhich were graded in quality, and for each quality had certain letters marked on his boxes.
