A bsbe Is born, and Us sobbing breath
Htw touched 00 the shores of life and death.
Rocking to rest In a mstber's arms,
The world swlnxt by with IU lurking harms.
Sweet border-laad ef her lot be his
What more have king made their dynasties?
Youth comes space as a day In June
The song In bis heart has love's law tune.
He reels the flutter of passing wings.
While he singing toils and tolling siags.
Ijve beckons afar to Howery strands
He dreams ta the light of Its border-lands.
Now the man delves deep la mines of thought,
Till Ambition's sword with tUme Is wrought,
. On the border-land mirages loom,
And hi heart goes down In wares of gloom.
O, temple of love and tender youth.
Awake your altar with Hps of truth.
Keturn with lilies so white and rare
Totwlao on the fevered brow of care.
He-give the charm of your lotus-leaves,
While peace reblods her gloryebeaves.
And boe with justice be Interwoven
'Till the race shall ken the Joy of heaven,
Whose border land and Its halo be
The life and love of eternity.

The Country Couple Want Home
With a Bad Opinion of New York
A sailor-looking man, willi hi arm

Battery recently, and nearly every
citicu of the town who passed him
for half an hour dropped a piece of
money into his palm without qiiea

'noticed that ho looked pule and
wcuk, and that wn sufliciciit. Pre-t-iit
ly there came along u middle-aged
married couple who were taking in the
flight, and instenl of contributing
something the niHn quuircd: .
"Want money, eh? What's the

"I'm A sailor."
"Y-e-s. Mary, does he look Jike (lie
tramp who tin-owed me over the
barnyard fence in April?"
"I think so."
"May not be, though. We don't
want to do hint an in justice. Ever

"Ever trump any?"
"Git drunk every day or two, I sup

"Sure you don't set on the fence all

"Well, I don't know but you are al)

"Don't you give him a cent!" whis

may go right off and buy burglar
tools with it!"
"By George! but I Jie.ver thought of

is really broke, and if you are a sailor
and if you are honest but unfortunate,
I'm kinder sorry for you, but I'll
have to think it over and gee you in

only be able to corroborate the testimony
given by Mrs. Few Tails, but add much
strength to the circumstantial evidence
that will be forthcoming as the trial
proceeds. Judge Polk opened the de
fense by giving a detailed account of
the facts they would be able to estab
lish with sn elaborate array of unques
tionable testimony. Three of the de
fendants testified In their own behalf,
telling substantially the same
story, which was that when
tbey discovered a band of
ten or fifteen Indians attempting
to drive off altnut :'M ties 1 of horses on
the morning of January II, a party of
sis settlers, the four defendants lieinj;
nieaibers of the party, armed them
selves wit'a ff'.ins,fnrniHhed by tlie state,
and started out to round up the red
skins. When within about 100 yards
of the Indians tbey demanded the
horses, but instead of securing their
stock they were fired upon, one of the
boys being slightly wounded on tho
hand. A lively skirmixh followed and
Indians, horses and whites scattered in

Miles' staff was subpeensed by the de

a state of war at that time, but he
declined to give testimony as to such

closely on the beets of the Spanish Cu
ban proclsuistiou. It is uders tood that
the details have gone forward . to the
point where the formalities of ratifica
tion may soon be exchanged between
the two countries. Mr, (Jalran, ths
special commissioner from San Domia
go, bal several interviews with Secre
tary Blaine before the latter was taken
sick, aud the foundations were' then
laid for reciprocal trade, Santo Domin
go has a population not far from 1.),0u0.
Its chief export are coffee, tobacco and
sngar. To keep its sugar market in the
United States and possibly enlarge it a
reciprocity arrangement was ; nec
essary. In return it will make ens
toms concessious on grain, breadstuff,
canned goods, machinery and cotton
manufactures, all of whUb are among
its main imports. Last year .San Do
mingo exported to this country a trills
under -.',ksi,000 worth of product, cf
which fl,Tl.,000 was sugai. In retur-i
the United Htates sent good to the
anion lit of tU-.'tf.OOO. of which wheat
flour amounted to $140,(104, lard $.'0.000,
iron and steel and their manufairtureii
f 170,000, wood and its manufactures
$117,tMiO. and cottons I ii.(SK); under
reciprocity the imjiortatlons will grow.
While the trade arrangeaietit does not

ing is that the Kan Domioeans will be

Paris, June 00. Dispatches from
Tunis report that the Italian Mafia is
doing deadly work there. A series of
outrages have been committed and
friends of the murdered aad detectives
seeking to discover the perpetrators,
as they were on the point of succeeding,
bars been atilettoed ' in ths streets.
Susa, a Sicilian, has been arrested and
confessed to three murders. Ths terri
ble work of the Mafia, nevertheless,
till goes on, aud at last accounts the
number of undetected homicides aver
agsd four a week. Each crime projMt-
gates others to conceal it and something
like a reiaii of terror prevails, resem
bling in so toe degree the condition in
!'ew Orleans before the lynching.
The French authorities of the French
Srotectorats have so far been unable to
eul efficiently with this outburst of
crime, and the French resiilents iu their
wrath may rise take a fearful venge
ance ou the Italians without discrimina
tion of the Innocent aud guilty. In the
meantime the protectorate is inclined
to expel ths entira Italian population
from ths country. Either of ' these
courses could not fail to arouse tlie
indignation of Italy, aud serious com
plications are possible at any moment
in the already precarious state of re
lations between the French and Italian
governments iu th Mediterranean.

Lonwin, June 30. The Eev, Dr. Par
ker, in his sermon in the temple, severe
ly denounced the selection of Sunday as
ths date of the kaiser proposed visit to
the naval exhibition. The preacher
nrgei that it was a bad lesson for Eng
lishmen to thus desecrate the Lords
day in pursuit of secular amusement
and instruction, and that the ruler of
the German Empire ought to give a bet
ter example. The reverend doctor al
luded to the ample time which royal
and imperial personages appeared to
have for amusement on week days, and
thought the emperor might, without
loss to himself or his people, spare a lit
tle of such time for the occasion in ques
tion. It was noticed that the remarks
did not evoke signs of earnest approba
tion. The fact is that everybody is tired
of the sensational whacking at royalty,
and assaults that might have been pop
ular two weeks ago are received now
with imliQerence and aversion.
