Think (So J tor the things that we have iiot,
The things we have hoped in vain ;
There are blessings as great or greater.
Sometimes, than those we obtain.
There was orce a dream that I cherished
In the days of long afro.
In the halcyon days of beyhood
And youth's niaturcr glae,
It was uot a dream of ambition,
Nora vlfinu of fame and power ;
Twas only the hope of posseslnR
A Fimle, God-made flower.
It was not my lot to reach It.
Secure in its natal spot ;
It grew among ruses and lilie?,
A.t blue forgct-me-nct.
And yet like a star from heaven.
Like a crag on the summit hli;li;
That allures the spirit toward
The abyss of the fathomless sky.
So far from the ptU lu the vallny.
As it grows on its eunny height,
It drew my spirit upward
With the gleam of ita heaven-bom light.
My heart with its beauty and fragrance,
My life with its joy it filled ;
So meaner thing could eochain me,
While its love iny being m edi
I thtni'ht that porhaps In the future
lVrhaps when life's battle was won,
Tu..t flower of tuy heart might blossom
I'.adiant a? star or sun.
Bull missed, and with dimming vision
lieheld the receding shore
The abysses lie between ,
I shall never s3 tt more.
And yet I do not regret it,
Or if caue of regret I see,
Tis regret of the things that make iw
Vet know no t how prized tney be.
God knows that I nevr harmed it,
Or shaded ths sunlight fair ;
Cut If prayers return iu blessing.
That flowers has blessings rare.
God bless it now jnd forever
For the good it did for me.
For the power which drew me up ward.
And the thing which yet shall he.
And God be orulsed forever
For the hopes we have hoped in vain.
The prayers which remain unanswered,
And the things we can never attain.
Samuel B. Foster.
Bend o'er me, Miie as summer skies.
The azure eplendor of thine eyes.
And smile with Hps whose murmur tells.
Like lingering Round of far-off bells
O'er shining seas ; that thou for me
Art pklcs and sound and summer sea !
Skies that contain the eun and moon.
The stars . the birds, the wind of June,
And tones that, swelling far and near.
Bear more than music in mine ear ;
and sea, above whose changeless hue
The suu is bright, the sky is blue !
Art thou my star? Sweet love, thour't more
Than all that ever twilight bore ;
Art thou my song? Dear love, from thee
Tiie whole world takes its melody
Art thou? nay ! what can words Impart
To tell one dram of what thou art.
Thou art my all : I know that love
Rains from the deepening dome above
In silver dew-drops, that the earth
Receives wit'i hushed and solemn mlr'.h ;
So thou all seasons linked In one
Art flower, :ia I bird and breeze and sun !
His Arguments and His Methods.
Mr. Inge rsoll says that Christ was a
great man, a manly man, a lover of
freedom, but no more. Tbat He was
enthusiastic, but not inspired. The
position ad mil 6 of but little argument.
It is above the cackle of the present
and the turmoil of petty reasonings.
The divinity of Christ must rest upon
belief. It is Dot a subject to be made
the football of pros and' cons. The
grand simplicity of the life He led,
aud the pastoral beauty of llis wander
ings and teachings along the highways
and through the byways of Galileo,
the epleiioid courage with which lie
taught Hi ; truth that was to be the
lLjht of f.ii wo. Id, in thu face of the
death which was sure to come, the
marvelous quality of His words which
gave them a universality which will
reach to the end of time, the sweet
manliness, the exquisite justice, the
broad genrosity which marked II;s
every step all these may belong to
earth and to man, but have never been
repeated in any life which has been
lived since, nor were they known in any
tif, wbteh bad t:n Ilv before Him.
Ho preserved the harmony to tho last
against temporal and church jower,
and at the end He was the joint sacri
fice of both. Only in His utterances
in'the last hours is there found any
thing for' the quibblers to pick over,
and theso are His words in the garden.
And wjiat is there in them? When
tho stern starless darkness hung over
the olives of Gethsemanr , and the dis
ciples who could "not watch one hour"
were asleep, when the winds shuddered
eerily Jhrouh the shrinking loaves,
WhfS the Spirit of Dread stood like a
sentinel between the time that had gone
and tho tomorrow that was to be au
eud.yet n beginning, when the God life
that "had been a poem of grace and
love and light was .vaudvriog down
the Valley of I he Shadow to tho deepei
blackness of a tragedy. Is it tlranye
that ll.e Rieal sud cy-d Soul of Hu
manity who w;is both nun and God
should have suffered like the one ami
eudured like the other? It is the ac
cepted theory of free thought that it
was the tear of death, born of the hu -man
in Him, which thrilled through
the pathos of that wild cry: "Father,
if it be possible, let this cup pass from
tue!' Yet is it not tuwrc rotable that
it was the profound sorrow and pity
that His people were about to commit
a great and causeless crime that forced
the words? Does not the later prayer
which came from His whitening lips
when, with ttuutleruble love, He looked
from his dimmed uud ding eyes upo i
His murderers, and a Mediator in the
death which was life cried out: "Fath
er, forgive them, for they know nut what
they do!'' support newer theory.
Perhars not! They eay that lie was
only a man. Ah, well! We are men
?Jso. Has tho work two meanings?
Mr. Ingersoll says that the life of Christ
and the doctrines Qf Christ are similar
to the life of liuddha and the docttines
of Buddha. This has been s.v.d often
enough before, but repetition dors uot
make it tiuc The statement only
provts a lack of analytical knowledge
There are resemblances but they are
n!y sn:fac. 3i.ddha was a prince
Hu lived in the languid luxuriance of
an Oriental court until he became tired
of life and all that pertainc J to it. He
saw sickness and sorrow and death
about him, and the belief that to exist
was to suffer became a conviction. All
was vanity and vexation. Therefore
he abandoned his tnaguificeucc, desert
ed his wife, assnmed the garb of a beg
gar, humiliated himself ai:d went out
into the world for the secret of happi
ness. For seven years he sat under a
tree and meditated, aad when the sev
en years wero ended, he found his an
swer, and went abroad preaching that
happiness lay in utter annihilation, in
a 6tate 3 of Nivana. in which there was
nor thought, cor action, nor hope, nor
fear, nor love, nor hate, tlis heaven is
a voiceless void. His reward i3 a se
rene nothing. He believed in doiDg
good, and tie taught his belief but in
this the resemblance begins and ends.
Ilia doctrine is a doctrine of skepti
cism, a weariness of life, a dread of
action, a repugnance to responsibility,
an appeal for extinction. The par
allel between Christ an Z Buddha is
drawn by ignorance
Very frequently during the past
year, we have reminded the democratic
masses of the fact, that, their psuedo
leaders were a parcel of insincere po
lilical mountebanks, parading the free
trade humbug for the purpose of
catching a certain class of sentimental
ist3, or theorists, upon the economic
question ot government, who other
wise would fiud no place of refuge
within the democratic camp.
We have charged the whole thing
was a humbug, which no political party
dared champion in a national campaign.
We have charged that the moment the
campaign was opened upon the coun
try for the selection of a national ticket
the democratic party would give the
free trade foundling the grand bounce.
We witnessed the first knock down
and out, of this British beggar, in Ohio,
when the "glorious Hoadly," as Doc
tor Miller calls the present governor
of that State, was nominated; the next
and most humiliating episode, was,
when the Carlisle-Morrison combina
tion tendered the country their dis
honest, horizontal, war tax reduction
measure which the other day met its
untimely and deserved fate at the
hands of both republicans and demo
crats in CoDgress by having its head
amputated; aud now in our own State4
In free trade Nebraska (?) we behold
the amuaiug f arc$ nlayed with a bolder
and more tinblushirfg effrontery then
has yet been exhibited in any demo
cratic convention. "We behold tho
great attorney of tho Union Pacific
monopoly, the detender and
champion of Oakes Ames and
Credit Mobiiier, patronizingly talc
ing charge of our Nebraska
democracy and, as chairman of IU
committee on platform, bringing into
its councils a cut and dried resolution
saying that our protective tariff 'should
"be so adjusted as to prevent as farc.it
"possible uuequal burdens upon labor,
and to bear most heavily upon arti
cles of luxury and lightly upon articles
"We desire to have all our democratic
friends read this deft aad liim state
ment of the tariff Question by Mr. Pop-
pleton, the great attorney of the Union
Pacific railro ul, aid then remember
how they lvtvt; been cursing the repub
lican party for advocating the same
doctrine from time immemorial. Fol
lowing this resolution, wo call upon
our tree trade neighbors to gaze upon
the distinguished free trader and anti-1
monopolist from .."Arbor Springs
Lodge," sailing down to Chicago upon
this tariff plunk and the picture is coot.
plete;didthe democratic convention,
just over, at Lincoln iiecu anytuing
more than Mr. Poppltton and his plat
form to cap the climax f its ridicu
lousness. Mr. Poppletou himself, fur
nished it in his address when ho de
nounced monopolies and national
banks. Had Jay Gould and "William
H. Vauderbilt been present as vice
presidents of this convention and been
members of the committee on reeolu
tioas the absurdity of the farce would
not have been heightened thereby.
