The Wisdom of AIL
Tbe Prophet once, ii In calm debate,
Said: I am Wisdom fortreM; but the rate
Thereof la All." Wherefore, some who heard.
With unbelieving jealousy were attired;
And, that they might on him confusion bring.
Ten of the boldost joined to prove the thing,
"liet us in turn to All go," they said,
' And ask if Wisdom sheuid te sought instead
Of earthly lichee; then, if hi reply
To each of us, in thought, accordantly.
And yet te none in speech or phrase the same.
His shall tbe honor be, and ours tbe shsme."
Now, when the first his bold demand did make.
These were the words which All ttraigbtway
"Wisdom Is the inheritance of those
Whom Alia!: favors: riches, of his foes." .
Cnto the second he said : "Thyself must be
Guard to thy wea.th; but wisdom guardeth
Unto the third: "By wisdom wealth is won;
But riebes purchased wisdom yet for none."
Vnto the fourth : "Thy goods the thief may
But into Wlfdom's house he canjot break."
Unto the fifth: "Thy goods decrease the more
Thou giv'st; but use enlarges Wisdom's
Cnto the sixth: "Wealth tempts to evil ways:
But the desire of Wisdom is God's praise,"
Unto the seventh: "Divide thy wealth, each
Becomes a pittance Give with open heart
Thy witdoin, and each separate gift shall bo
AU that thou hast, yet not Impoverish thee."
Unto the eighth; "Wealth cannot keep it
But Wltdom is tho steward even ef pelf."
Unto the ninth : "The camels slowly bring
Thy goods; but Wisdow has the swallow's
And lastly, when tbe tenth did question make,
These were the ready words which All spake:
"Wealth Is a darkness which the soul should
But Wisdom is the lamp that makes It clear."
Crimson with shame tho questioners with
drew, And they declared: 'The Pronhet's words
Tbe mouth of All is tbe golden dcor
When his friends te AU fcore
These words, he smiled and said: "Ana
Ehould they ask
The same until my dying day, the task
Were easy; for the stream from Wisdom's
Which God supplies, is inexhaustible.'
From the Desert I come to thee
On a stallion shod with fire;
And the winds are left behind
In the speed of my desire.
Under" thy window I stand,
And the midnight hears my cry:
1 love thee, I love but thee,
With a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold,
And the stars are eld,
And the leaves of the Judgment
Look from thy window and see
My passion and my pain;
I lie on the sands below,
And I faint in thy disdain,
Let the night winds touch thy brow
With the heat of my burning sigh,
And melt thee to hear the vow
Uf a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold.
And the stars are old,
And the leans of the Judgmtnt
My steps are nightly driven
By the fever in my breast,
To hear from thy lattice breathed
The word that shall give me rest.
Open the doo:' of thy heart,
And open tby chamber door.
And my kisses shall teach thy lips
The love that shall fade no more
Till the snn grows cold.
And the stars are old,
And the leaves of the Judgment
i CONVICTS WILL BE RETURNED.
Governor Buchanan Says He Will Put
Them to Work In the Mines,
Nashville, Dec. 1. "The convicts
shall be returned to the mines if it takes
every able bodied man in the state to do
it," said Governor Buchanan. Although
the governor is reticent, from other
sources the information is gathered con
cerning the matter. The lessees have
made a demand npon the state for the
convicts. This demand was answered
promptly that when the convicts were
captured they would be returned if sup
plied with sufficient guard and proper
quarters. The proper quarters will be
built at once. This will take about two
The guards will not be taken from tho
existing militia companies of the state,
but men will be enlisted for the purpose.
About 300 of the 453 released convicts
have been recaptured.

Situation in Brazil Mayor
Grant in Ireland.
Pahb, Dec. 1. A diplomatic commu
nication from Russia brings terrible
news. Over 30,000,000 of human beings
are literally dying of hunger. In some
of the Russian provinces bordering on
the Volga the people are keeping them
selves alive by eating the bark of trees.
This awful state of things is aggravated
by the blundering method of the Russian
administration. A few weeks before the
issue of the ukase absolutely forbidding
the exportation of cereals, the railway
companies were ordered to allow none
of their cars to be nsed for the transport
of this grain. The companies improv
ing on this, order stopped the trans
port of corn. Two million sacks of corn
were actually rotting in the province of
Odessa,, while a few miles away men and
women were starving. And all this

been devoting a few hours to recreation.
He visited Bessbrook and Spring Mills,

Santiago, Dec. 1. Advices from Bra
zil are that the outlook is less peacoful
than given out by the official statement.
A conflict is anticipated between the
troops of President Peixotto and the
troops of the province of Rio Grande do

Paris, Dec. 1. The French senate de

Freight Teams Fail to Go Over the Conti
Denver, Dec. 1. Information from
Sidney, Colo., says the freight teams
which started from North Park last
week, hauling over the surplus grain,
have returned with loaded wagons. On
the summit of the continental divide
snow drifts were encountered from ten
to twelve feet deep. It was impossible
to break through them. It is feared
that hardships will result to the ranchers

sold in North Park for the purchase of
Corn Reaches OOc.
New York, Dec, 1. On the Produce
Exchange there were no new develop
ments in the Field, Lindley, Weichers
& Co. failure. It is believed all the out
standing November corn obligations of
the firm havo been discharged. There
was considerable flurry on the floor of
the exchange over November corn. It
opened at 7So and sold at 80c. Shortly
1 o'clock it jumped to the phenomenal
figure of OOc, the highest price reached
in years. It is not thought, however,
that there are many outstanding deliv
eries, most of them having been already
settled around 80c.
Cattle for British Columbia.
Ottawa, Ont., Dec. 1. As some dis
satisfaction exists in British Columbia
regarding the regulations as to the in
spection and quarantine of cattle euter
ing for local consumption from the
United States, the dominion government
has decided to suspend that part of the
regulations requiring cattle to be quar
antined ninety days before entering the

GROVER'S THANX8 FOR SUGAR.
He Writes t the Xorfolk People Aa

Norfolk, Neb., Dec 1. A ten pound
package of Norfolk beet sugar was re
cently forwarded by Secretary Hamilton
to Grover Cleveland. Xhe sugar wai
accompanied by a short letter from the
secretary outlining the new industry in
the state. The following was receiveJ
To Jas. G. Hamilton, Secretary:
Dear Sir I received the bag of susaf
you sent me as a specimen of the product
of your company's factory, and I desire to
return my thanks for the same. This in
dustry has grown up so quietly nud
quickly In our western country that the ex
tent to which the manufacture of augur is
carried on in Norfolk as stated in your let
ter, is a matter of great surprise to me,
though I believe my gratification la even
greater than my surprise. Yours very
truly, Groveb Cleveland.
John Koenigstein, mayor of this dry,
comes out in an open letter, making
proposition to Norfolk or any other Ne
braska city or town to build, equip Bnd
operate a beet sugar factory. Mr. Ko
enigstein states that he has ample capital
and an experienced company back of
him. He proposes to pay $1.50 per ton
for beets, regardless of the saccharine
percentage, and offers a premium of $50
to anyone raising 100 tons. At least
5,000 acres of beets must be guaranteed.
Minority Faction of the Evangelical As
sociation Take Their Troubles In
Cleveland, O., Dec. 1. The minority
party in the Evangelical association be
gan quo warranto proceedings which
will have the effect of bringing the con
troversy which' has raged so long and
bitterly in this religious denomination
to a speedy issue. The minority faction
held their general conference a short
time ago in Philadelphia and elected
bishops and officers for the church and
the branches of the 1 great publishing
house in this city. The majority faction
did likewise at Indianapolis, and as they
were already in possession of the offices
their decrees have gone into effect. ' The
relators in the case are the new officers
of the minority party and the defend
ants are the officers of the majority.
The claim made is that the Indianapo
lis conference was illegal, and its decrees
therefore are of no effect. The circuit
court is asked to oust the majority from
the church offices and install the bishops
and officials elected in Philadelphia.
CENSUS OF SAVAGES.
An Enumerator at Work In the Wilds of
Westminster, Eritish Columbia, Dec.
1. Fred R. Greer, government census
enumerator for the tribes of Indians on
the mainland, has returned. Greer left
Victoria June 1 for the purpose of taking
a census of the Omineca country, going
as far as Thomas creek to the gold mines,
also to Fort Simpson, at the head waters
of Frazer river, where Stewart's lake is
Greer says that throughout the whole
of his journey he saw no land worth any
thing at all for any purpose whatever.
The Indians were fairly friendly. His
mode of procedure on entering an Indian
village was to lean his loaded rifle up
against the house of an Indian, take off
his belt containing his bowie knife, lay
it alongside, and then proceed about his
work. By so doing he convinced tho
aborigines that he meant no harm, and
they would thun approach him and ask
what he wanted. And on his replying
they would become perfectly tractable.
Part of the month of August was exces
sively hot, the glass registering as high
as 136 deg. in the aun. The thunder and
lightning at times were something ter
rific. The Indians he says are very poor.
The savages are all naked.
Remains of Mrs. Tracy and Daughter.
New York, Dec. 1. The bodies of the
wife 'and daughter of Secretary of the
Navy Benjamin F. Tracy are now bur
ied in Greenwood cemetery, near tho
grave of the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher.
The transfer from Rock Creek cemetery
to Greenwood was made secretly, as
Secretary Tracy shrunk from publicity
in the matter. In speakyig of the rein
terment a Greenwood cftnetery official
said: "The reinterment took place some
months ago. Secretary Tracy was anx
ious that nothing should be said about it
at the time the lamentable nffair hail
attracted enough attention. The attend
ance was limited to a few relatives,
though I believe the president took a
kindly interest in the matter."

of winning and each express the belief
that the contest will be short, sharp and
decisive. Springer, McMillan and Hatch

the vote will be of considerable dura
tion. The headquarters of the various can
didates were crowded with their friends
until late in the evening. There were
no new developments so far as is known,
and the battle is still between the five
avowed candidates. There is as yet no
talk of any withdrawals from the race.
ach candidate, according to the state
ments of his friends, is in the contest to
stay to the end. 1

little indeed, of a probable dark horse in
the event of a protracted struggle.

several new arrivals that they would
vote for their candidate. ,
Mr. Mills received a telegram from

Considerable attention is given in the
report to the subject of overtime claims
of letter carriers, under the act of March
24, 1888, limiting the number of hours
earners shall be employed per day. So
many important questions relating to
the construction of this act have arisen
in attempting to adjust overtime claims
that it has been deemed best, in the in

of justice to the carriers, to await a con
struction of the law by a court having

The officials of the Adams Express
company declare that the robbers did
not secure any more than $20,000. Be
yond this they would say nothing about
the roblcry. At the general offices of
the 'Frisco road, however, the officials
were more communicative. The train
had reached Old Orchard, eight miles
from this city, when four robbers
boarded the cars. Two of them got on
the front end of the express car next to
the engine and two on the rear platform
of tho express car. When the train left
Old Orchard the two on the front plat
form climbed over the tender into the cab
and complied the engineer to stop the
train. The robbers on the rear platform
then put giant powder under the door of
the car and blew it partly off. Entering
the car they beat the messenger - into
submission and forced open the safe and
rifled it of its contents. Meantime the
other two men were firing revolvers and
ordering the passengers to keen inside
the cars. When the bandits had se
cured the valuables they disappeared in
the woods beside the track.
The express messenger is at Spring
field and is reported badly injured. The
engineer describes the men who were on

build and light complexion and the
other a heavy man, with a black mous

The Tunnel Accident.
Toledo, O., Dec. 1. The coroner's
inquest to inquire into the railroad acci
dent last Saturday night was commenced.
The inquest will last several days. The
railroads will make a strong fight to
prove that the accident was the act of
God with nobody to blame. Lyons, the
engineer of the Pere Marquette train
that collided with the rear car of the
Lake Shore express, is at present con
demned by the public for running faster
than the company's rules allow, All at
tempts to interview Lyons and Con
ductor Hunter have failed. Maude Mo
Kenzie aged 4, daughter of J. A. Mc
Kenzie of Minneapolis, died at 4:30 at St.

eighth victim of the- accident. Her
mother, Mrs. J. A. Mckenzie is very low

tracted over the probability of his wife's
injuries proving fatal and it is feared he
will lose his mind.
New York Waterways.
Albany, Dec. 1. At midnight the
the canals of the state, the Champlain,
Black Kiver, Oswego and Cayuga, closed
for the winter. Superintendent of Pub
lic Works Hannah said that business on
the canals this year has been very Large.
There have been fewer breaks and less
trouble along the entire lines of canal
than for many previous years. The Erie
canal, however, does not close until Dec.
5, unless the recent cold wave renders
the use of the locks impossible by ice
forming. It was at the request of the
Chamber of Commerce of New York
City and Buffalo and the Rochester mill
ers that this extention was granted.
Their losses will be great if the accumu
lated grain does not find its way to
seaboard before cold weather closes

severely criticise our immigration laws.

been opened to thugs, garroters, anarch
ists, nihilists and other pests, and they
were permitted to roam freely and com
mit every conceivable variety of crime.
The event in New York, tho attack on
Mr. Hall, was of a kind. New York and
New Jersey can and will compel the
putting up of the bars of Castle Garden
and stop tliis dreadful state of affairs.
