Of hungry faces, hurrying Ood knows where?

Tho Unfiled Pessimist.
I sat mo down to write a rhymo of gloom.
All was In Hi no for It; my temples throbbed)
In semldnrkuess was my cheerless room,
And through tho trees tho sad hroczo soughed
. and sobbed;
My heart was burning with a fancied woo;
Digestion waited not on nptietltc;
My spirits rainu In dull and sluggish flow;
Naught was there In tho world that pleased
My pen Itself would not putdown tho thought
Tho pessimistic thought that held my mind.
Try as I would tho fancy Hew uncnught,
Uncatchablo as any truant wind.
Yet I wrote, on, and when tho rhymo complete
Stared boldly at 11111 from tho saffron page
I found myself n victim to defeat
I'd written this a truly happy age!
I'd said that In this llfo wero more of good
Than wicked things; dosplto tho heavy mist
Of present trial, those who understood
Life ns It really Is could hot resist
The truo conclusion, tried nnd guaranteed,
That wo havo many blessings; and no grief,
Ilowover much because of It tho heart may
lias over been without some sweet relief.
Alasl that I, disciple, truo of gloom,
Philosopher of woe, should o'er confess
That Joy upon this earth hath any room,
That mortals find hero aught of happiness!
And yet, though I scorn faithless to my creed
In writing then that optimistic song,
I am not so. It proves Its truth, Indeed,
When even I, Its follower, go wrong.
If ow to Vote.
Let everv man who has a vote
Vote for "Irogressl"
Not for party, Teaca or pleasure)
Not for favor, fame or treasure;
Voto for every honest measure
Voto for 'I'rogrcssI"
Voto as If our voto might enrry
Voto for "ITogrcssI"
Franchise Is a gift from heaven,
Eacrcd trust to manhood given;
Be not llko dumb cattle. driven
Vote for "I'rogrcssI"
Vote for men above suspicion
Men of "Progress!"
No, not wirepullers! nay, forsooth!
But men who from their enrly youth
Lov'd Justice, honor, Ood and truth
Fought for "Progress!"
That man who sells his voto for gold
Should be a slave!
What! sell thy birthright for a bribe.
And kinship claim with Ksau's trlbeT
Buch meanness sesreo can wo describe,
Uoth fool and knave!
Tot for your country, Ood and boms.
And for "Progressl"
Don't say, "Let well enough alone,"
But kick aside each stumbling stone
As If this land were all your own
Vote for "Progress!"
Ah, what is llfeT. so brief at best
A waking between rest and rest;
An Insect's trail along the sand;
A gem's bright Hash upon tho hand;
A wave line traced on ocean's Bhore,
Just rippled them, then seen no more;
A breath ujion a frosted pane,
A moment warmed, then chilled again;
The shadow of a cloud that stays
Until obscured by passing haze.
Canst think of aught more brief, more fleet,
To imago forth Time's flying feet?
Yet in tho "shadow," In the "breath,"
Our love awakes, which knows no death.
And life, which seems so brief to )o,
Isurowned by Immortality!
Death to the virtuous no terror brings.
But inthe tyrant's ear there ever rings
A knell Imaginary, which cants a 'fear
Throughout his soul; he thinks the tlmo Is near
When shall pass from him nil his 111 gotower,
And, as he thtnkson death, ho dreads the hour.
For him no heaven unbars its golden gate.
But in his bosom burns tho hell of hate.
Strange that a man, who knows how short is
Should waste his hours lu most Ignoble strife
Instead of cultivating heavenly love
The only passport to the realms above;
riio only way to erring mortals given
to make this beauteous eai th resemble heaven.
George Mnrklmtn Twcddoll
