O, golden threads of silver sons;
That fall across my path to-day.
If I a garnered sheaf may bind
Of tender trifles, light and strong.
Lend me sweet words to ring along.
And o'er the ways to sometimes find
Where Summer tells her dreams to me.
Her prosy toil It laid away.
And with book she comes to stay,
To wake the page with golden key,
And thrill us with a roundelay
Of woven song where roses fine
And tendrils round the windows twine.
While shining bars drip mist and spray
And lily-cups onoe held their wine,
Sad rains rehearse their melody.
Yet no tear dims this heart of mine.
The leaning grasses look within
The open volume In ber hand.
And warning echoes from the glen
Are calling all thu minstrels in,
While higher notes Dot known of men
Arc trilled along the prairie land.
Tho' twilight falls on borrowed leaves
In summer's binding, red and gold,
And wheaten ears from harvest sheaves,
'Neath sunset light and amber stars
A harp-like lute the blue-stem weaves.
And lovers' call from pasture bars
Repeats a song of rarest gold.
The same sweet song the ancients told
Beneath the moon's pale scimitars.
That "1 jve so new Is strangely old."
Tho moon's red light is growing wan,
My scroll unlearned floats swift away;
The stats grow dim, each voice is gone,
The voices from the valleys borne
To upland seas of ripening corn.
I clamor vain for longer stay,
"Dear guest, 'bide yet a brief delay,"
But Summer olosed her book to day.
She takes the volume from my band
Tho' few the notes that are my own.
She leaves me dreams of mignlonette
And b -eath of hay on prairies wet.
, I see from this my morning laud
Her golden boat, the morning star;
Her zone has touched the autumn-strand,
Her vail a lost cloud's gray cymar.

Clearwater, Neb., Aug. 31, 1881.
Where thy Footsteps led, we Follow.
Not for thee the requiem strain,
Friend beloved and comrade truest!
Gazing upward, we would fain
Watch the path that tbon pursuest;
But from yearning mortal sight,
Clouds of heaven, do ye receive him.
Ah, the gateway opening bright,
Closes dark for us who grieve hiin.
Fought the fight, and kept the faith!
Not for him be wild lamenting,
He unrecking life or death . s -
Gave his gifts without repenting.
Shall we falter, shall we fail
We who named him friend and brother?
Still his memory shall prevail,
Kindling Hunt Time cannot smother.
When did Freedom's roll-call sound,
That she found her son not ready,
Foremost still to take the ground,
' Eye alert, and footstep steady?
"Forward March !" the bugles rang;
Old the fight, yet just beginning.
Why the stern, relentless clang
Of the "Halt!" that stayed his winning?
Why! oh, why! We may not ask.
Ours to tread where duty beckonB;
Ours the faith, the hope, the task;
God alone the future reckons.
Press we where our hero fell!
Fell? Nay! Hose to heights supernal!
Yet, with us his thought must dwell,
Even 'mid the peace eternal.
Beating heart t'uat, full and warm,
Pulsed with human Joy and sorrow
Soul for sunshine and for storm!
Not fer thee earth's brief to-morrow.
Loosed the clasp of mortal hand;
But the Spirit, what can sever?
liife, nor death, can break the strand
Love and truth have knit forever.
Not for thee the requiem strain,
Tho' our lips with sorrow quiver,
And the tears, that fall like rain,
Mingle in grief's ceaseless river.
Friend beloved, and comrade tried!
Hearts are faint and eyes are hollow;
But, whatever fate betide.
Where thy footsteps led, we follow.

We find the following gem in the
New York Standard. It refers to the
death of Wm. T. Croasdale, late editor
of that paper. It will be s. surprise to
most people that a poet at once so
tender and so strong is so near us. He
should be cherished.
Heis dead, our defender and leader.
Our fearless and forcible pleader;
No more shall wo see him or hear him ;
No more shall his enemies fear him:
His eloquence, brilliant and clever, "
Is silenced forever, forever.
His mind was a mind of great splendor;
His soul was exalted and tender.
He loved Right and worked to sustain it;
He loathed Wrong and strove to restrain it.
Truth and Justice he honestly sought for,
Earnestly thought for, and wrought for.
He cared not for creeds, cliques, nor classes;
He trusted and toiled for the masses;
He sacrificed self for all others;
He looked upon all men as brothers:
He labored to have all wrongs righted,
And have all the nations united.
The selfish and ignorant sneered him;
The proud and the opulent jeered him;
Old friends and companions denied him;
Herce loes and opponents defied him;
Still he preached from humanity's altar
As unmoved as tho rocks of Gibraltar.
Ho died fljfhting wrongs, grim and hoary;
Passed from lite to a death of true glory.
But the cause that he nobly defended
Will survive until all thltigs are ended.
Wrong withers, but Right remains vernal;
Truth, Justice, and Right arc eternal.

Kansas Cttt, Sept. 7. The unprece
dented movement of grain from the
west has choked the market. There are
mil of sidetracks fall of loaded ears
here, and the grain men and railroad
men are working night and day to clear
the jam. The necessity for mills, for
transit work, and more elevators was
never more severely felt All of the
thirteen ejevator at the mouth of the
Kaw are crowded to their utmost ca
pacity. One hundred cars of wheat
were turned over to a Chicago road to
be shipped direct from Kansas through
Kansas Ciiy to Chicago. Owing to a
new practice the railroads have adopt
ed, the danger of a car shortage is
greatly reduced. Each road now
uses its own cars exclusively. No cars
from the west., a roads can go farther
east than St. Louis or Chicago, unless
an equal number of empty cars from
the receiving road replace those taken
loaded. This plan is proving successful.
It keeps the cars well scattered over the
western territory. The Union Pacific
not being a through road is ehoving the
grain into the city. The Chicago, Santa
Fe and California road cannot furnish
enough engines to haul the cars alrea dy
here to Chicago. The Santa Fe yards
as a consequence of this are stuffed to
overflowing. There are now over one
thousand cars loaded with grain in their
yards. There are 7U0 cars in the Mis
souri Pacific yards.

Tho Remodelled White House.
Ilawley to Succeed Proctor.
Washington, Sept 7. An unfortun
ate condition of affairs has just come
before the interior department. The
forest fires which have swept oyer many
sections of the northwest have partially
destroyed large tracts of government
timber, which must go to waste unless
it i saved this fall and winter. Much
of the land is in contest, and the people
who hope to secure title are anxious to
save the timber before it is lost, but
they are debarred from doing bo by the
timber laws, which prevent the cutting
of timber while contests are in prog
ress. Many applications have been made to
Land Commissioner Carter for permits
to cut the partially burned timber, and
thus avoid the waste. The commis
sioner says, however, that he can give
no relief to these applications.
It would be unwise, he thinks, to let
aside the law protecting government
timber whenever there was a forest
fire, for such a precedent would induce
fraud and there would be forest fires
started all over the country in order to
base an application for a permit to cut
timber. Ji! a case of impending waste
is made very clear to him by affidavits
showing the exact amount of timber to
be cut the commissioner says he might
grant a hearing, although the proof
would have to be so elaborate that the
waste would occur before the permit
could be grunted. In view of this feel
ing at the land office much of this tim
ber in the northwest, which has been
partially burned, will be a total loss.
The Remoiloled While House.
Washington', Sept. 7. The president
and family will be back in the White
House by the middle of September. At
least such is the notice that comes from
Cape May to those in charge of improve
ments. It has been many years since
the living part of the mansion has been
given such an overhauling. When Mrs.
Harrison retuns she will scarcely recog
nize the beautiful room at the south
west angle of the White House, which
is devoted to ber use. Silver and gold
abound in the decoration of the apart
ment, and her boudoir adjacent is fitted
up in a style and with n taste which
could not fail to satisfy the most exact
ing of her sex. Just across the hall,
in - what used to fe Mrs. Cleve
land's charming morning room, the
children of the family will hold high
carnival with their dolls and toys, a
new dado and draperies at the north
west window being conspicuous among
the new features. President Harrison's
bed room is the one known as the
Prince of Wales apartment from the
fact that his royal highness slept in the
room during his short stay at the White
House early in the '60s. A cardinal silk
canopy, with drawn folds, surmounts
the splendidly carved walnut bedstead,
and above all is a new gold shield bear
ing the coat-of-artns of the United
States, the eagle seeming to spread his
outstretched wings protectingly over
the president while he slumbers at night.
During President Cleveland's adminis
tration a wooden partition was con
structed in the large corridor, but this
has been removed and the family will
have a clear range of the big room thus
created, and which was such a source of
pride and decoration for the la to Presi
dent Arthur.
Meeting with Success.
Washington, Sept. 7. The consul
general of Germany at San Jose, Costa
Rica, has made an official report to his
government, under date of June 30, 1891,
in which he says:
"There is no doubt that the extra
ordinary endeavors which the American
industrial world, backed up by the
government, is making to increase its
trade with Spanish American countries
are meeting with success. The differ
ence in price, if any, is more than com
pensated for by the attractive and
handy get-up of American goods. Ger
many, however, plays a large part in
the import trade of this country having
shipped $179,367 worth of merchandise
in 1890 us against $175,621 in 1M81.
Still our trade is closely pressed by
Great Britain and the United States.
"The German, American and British
industrial worlds are now doing their
level bust to crush each other's trade in
ironware of ail kinds, cotton shirts,
underclothing, preserves and the like;
this is more especially the case as re
gards cotton piece goods, cheap calicos
at about 7 pence per yard and common
handkerchiefs cannot be got from Ger
many, owing to the great distance; but
in tho dearer qualities we compete suc
cessfully. Proctor' Successor.
Washington, Sept. 7, Private ad
vices received here state that Senator
Hawley of Connecticut has been offered
the war office, to succeed Secretary
Proctor. General Hawley is at Cape
May conferring with President Harri
son alwut the matter. Friends of the
senator's who are familiar with Con
necticut politics, and informed as to
his chances for renomination as
again'i, Governor Bolkeley, and re
election to the United States senate for
the term beginning in 18915. think it
very probable that ho will accept the
offer and be the next secretary of war.

of great peril in the days of the break

was formed to kill him and other federal
officers and secure the territory for the
secessionists. The scheme failed, and
nothing went further to defeat the plans
of the rebels than the ruling of Judge

that in the cases of armed rebellion

The people only need a leader. The op

citizens of the United States, and es
pecially those of Texas, The success of

has given the dissatisfied Mexicans
great hope, and many believe an out
break is not far distant,
