J, II. Hahucy, Druggist, Lincoln, Neb.
Written for the Coumkh.
I WANTED YOU.
I stood upon tho mountain,
In tho glow of suniinor day,
Where tho countless chords of nature
Hang In symphonies of praise,
Lovely veils were round about iho,
When, In oiio harmonious view,
Natures handiwork was blended,
Then my lone heart wanted you.
Hugged hills, Iiuko master pieces
Of creations higher art,
First to Krcot tho leaping sunbeams,
Whcu tho day gates swing apart.
Lifted high tholr tree clad summits,
With tho green against tho blue,
But boy ond It all, was something
Dearer still I wanted you.
Cloud Mosaics, over changing,
Under swung the urchltig sky
lllrds with olear-toncd voices caroled,
Wild wood lucouso, lloated by.
Nature's fuco upturned to greet mo,
Thrilled my lono heart, through and
Yet my eyes were wet with weeping,
All tho while I wanted ou,
Angels watching from tho star lands,
Caught the gllltcr of my tears,
As they foil unon tho mosses,
Oh I Those silent restful tours,
Through tho rifted mists thoy whispered,
To your heart's test love, bcltrue.
And thoy knew thoo heavenly angels
Thut my sad heart wanted you.
On tho Galilean mountain,
Towering high abovo tho Bea,
Christ unlocked tho bonds of vision, ,
And revealed divinity.
In my waking soul transfigured,
Lovo rovealed himself anew,
On the mountain by tho sea shoro,
And I knew I wanted you.
Let tho by goncs ho forgotten,
Let tho days to come bd ours,
llrtuglug peace that we shall welcomo
As tho lilies greet fio showers.
Let tho heart, that now confessing,
Heat In sympathy, bo true,
Joy be with us after coping.
Kor you know I wanted you.

Fio I Krue, while traveling in Iowa for John
Prlt7b.iH"s Hnrdwaro Co., makes Chicago
occasionally and hunts up his foimur Lin

ten daj s ago for a few hours. Huso persis

In Chicago Saturday uftei noon. It was my

so gracious, ami never I m font was she quite
null u decided brunette. She Is a handsome
woman and was dressed with a quiet rich
ness that announced hor pel feel tasto. She
sang for encores, during her three concerts,
"II lliiclo,"' "Ooinlng thro' the Hyo,"
"Home Sweet Home," in tho same old stereo

Innluiid Modjeska aro enjoying phcomuii-
ally good houses this week, the former at
Hooley's; tho latter at tho Chicago Opera
house. Their engagements nre for but ono
week however, und this has boon thu almost
invariable rule with tho lest attractions this
season. They evidently take the city for a
country village, and aro afraid to make long
engagements. Sol Smith stu is I three w eeks

A story not generally known has come
under my notice, and knowing it to bo a
true one, I think it will loar rotating.
While Hussoll was plajlng "A Peaceful
Valley," ono evening in a certain town In
Texas, n very noted gambler was so impress
ed by the earnest pathos u the incident thut
Sol Smith relates concerning tho Chatham
Square drive, that he rose to his feet and ex
citedly cried "If I thought that man was In
euruest, and meant wiiat lie says, I would
beg him on bonded knee,"
A Ikix party noticed nt tho Grand lately,
consisted of six young und very pretty
women, their chaH-rone and one young man.
The young women were overwhelming hint
with their attention and lie poor fellow, wus
trying to look pleased and was making a dis
mal falluio, When you see a young woman
with a young man for uu escort, you are
struck by tho discrepancy in their ages.
Nine times out of ten he Is old enough to lie
tier father, Jet one call plainly set lie is not.
Let mo say to tho society girls and young
women of Lincoln, never complain again of
Lincoln and Lincoln men. To thoroughly
appreciate them -come to Chicago.
