(iitil name into existence as a subject
of Miiuintic (piest and endeavor. In
stead of roving over the earth t'j lind
a lady-love, the knight of licti jci set
forth to search for the Grail, which
lad vanished from mortal sight. Not
only has France used the Holy ;rail
as a subject for many works of art,
but it has also been used by other na
tions. 'Thetfreat German composer, l.'ich
ard Wagner, in his much discussed
opera, --Parsifal." treats of the Grail
and its immediate keepers. In this
opera, JClingsor, a magician hassinned
and canuot become a Grail kniirht,
He seeks revenge by tempting the
knight. Here the Grail king cuice
fell from grace. He was wounded by
the magician and could only be cured
by a 'sinKs fool enlightened through
pity.' This character Is Parsifal. An
old woman, sometimes under the spell
of Klingsor, enlightens him through
pity for his mother. After many
years Parsifal cures the Grail king,
and lie, himself, becomes the Grail
"Tennyson, the great English poet
has also used the the Holy Grail as the
subject for many of his poems. One
of these, 'The Holy Grail,' gives us
the Knglish legend that if a man could
see or touch the Grail, by his faith, he
was at once cured of all his ills. Put
the times grew to such evil that the
cup disappeared. Several knights
started out upon the search for it.
ne of these knights was called 'The
Pure.' Of another knight it was said.
'God made thee good as though art
beautiful.' Another was Lancelot,
the king's mightiest night, a man
with strength and will to right the
"When from the vainless jiicst they
all returned, the king said, 'Did I not
speak iruiy, my knights, when 1 said
to those that went upon the holy
uest, that most of them would fob
low wandering fires'' Tennyson has
made Sir Galahan the subject of one
of the most exquisite of his poems.
Mr Galahad says, 'My strength Is as
the strength of ten liecause my heart
is pure;' and for this reason he hones
to find tho Holy Grail.

Railroad Rumors Across the River,
I.ailroad rumors are still matters of
large interest in the town. A large
number of changes were billed for the
first of June. Agent W. J. Hewitt
has left the service of the road and will
go to Des Moines to serve as road mas
ter for the C. - N. W. To succeed
him G. W. Shreves Is nromoted to
serve as day yard master and as agent.
Mike Mack will be night yard master
Changes in the freight and express ser
vice are also on the tapis. It is said
that the freight house will be closed,
that no transfers will be made here
and that local freight will be handled
at the station. L. (). .ornes will go
hack to the depot as baggage master.
Against this change in the freight ac
commodations there is a vigorous re
monstrance by the business men. It is
not easy to get to the depot to get
freight out and the merchants do not
like the idea of having it hauled from
there. They have sent a petition to
the railroad oMIcials asking that the
change be not made. IS. F. Frederick
son, an old employe of the company, Is
tube let out by the reduction In the
forces. It is reported that former
master inecluinic P.eckwith has been
reduced in service on the road and that
he Is looking for a better position in
