Whatever is a cruel wrong.
Whatever la unjust.
The honest years that speed alone
Will trample In the dust.
In restless youth I railed at fata
With all my puny might.
But now I know It I but wait
It all will come out right
Though Vice may don the Judge's gown,
And play the censor's part,
And Fact be cowed by Falsehood's frown,
And Nature ruled by Art;
Though Labor toils through blinding tears
And idle Wealth is might,
I know the honest, earnest years
Will bring It all out right.
Though poor and loveless creeds may pass
For pure religion's gold;
Though ignorance may rule the mass,
While truth meets glances cold,
I know a law complete, sublime,
Controls us with its might.
And in God's own appointed time
It all will come out right

Of the various companies working
the Mill Valley phosphate lauds, the
most popular among the employes was
that of Thomas & Jay a fact chiefly
due to the kindly deportment and Just
Idea of its members. Walter Thomas,
tne Junior partner, had gone from
Sibley to Mill Valley and purchased
a considerable tract, and as it proved
rich In phosphates, he was soon on
the road to fortune. A few months
afterward be had sold an interest to
Jay, who was in needy circumstances,
although a capable business man. The
esteem in which the partners were
held was especially demonstrated dur
ing the first strike of the laborers
a week of rioting, called Black Week
by some of the companies; for Thomas
& Jay's men remained at work in spite
of every effort made to bring them
A few days before Black Week
Thomas announced that he was go
ing to claim a month off, averring that
he needed a change.
"That's all right, of course," said
Jay. "But I trust your health Is not
"No," replied the latter. "There
are rumors that many of the men are
dissatisfied with the scale of wages;
do you think you can get along by
yourself if they go out?"
"I think I can. The truth is, I have
no fears as to the course of our em
ployes. I trust you will return re
juvenated, so to speak."
There was something In his part-
Ths Colonel protested,
aer's tone that caught the attention
of Thomas. He looked up and noted
a droll look on his friend's features.
"Come, now," said Thomas, slightly
Irritated, "what Is the meaning of
that horrible look?"
"Is It horrible?" Jay laughed. "It
was Intended for a look of commisera
tion. Look here, Waldo I'm on!
Will yon consider mo presumptuous
If I volunteer a little advice?"
"Wstt la It r' was as much at
Thomas would agree, drawing at his
; tfSar wltii unusual energy.

those who seek his daughters In mar

In this case, he has no right to ob

Jay had correctly surmised the cause
of his friend's discontent Love af
fairs are more difficult to be kept se
cret than the schemes of armies. All
the parties concerned were residents
of Sibley, and the unsuccessful woo
ing of Thomas was known and dis
cussed by the gossips, though the
young man was blissfully Ignorant of
Thomas wag handsome, prosperous
in his present undertaking, if be had
not been before in other enterprises,
and was the soul of honor. He had,
however, at least two reasons for be
lieving In the assertion of Joaqulm
"I tell you that love Is the bitterest sweet
That ever laid hold on the heart ot a
One was that Colonel Lovell was
unalterably opposed to his marriage
to his daughter, Mary; the other was
that Mary, while confessing her love
for Thomas, was averse to becoming
his wife without the consent of her
father. Two of Colonel Lovell's
daughters had been compelled to elope,
for their lovers met no favor in his
eyes. His wife considered them with
more favor, and when she asked him
timorously why be opposed them, had
to put up with the reply, "Just be
cause I am, and that's sufficient"
The truth was that Thomas was in
need of a little advice at the time his
partner made his suggestion. Like
a drowning man, ready to grasp a
straw, he listened with patience to
Jay, now that the subject hsd been
mentioned.- He very naturally asked:
"What do you mean by appealing
to the young lady's fear?"
"Simply this: Tell her with all the
resolution you can command tbat you
propose asking her but once more to
listen to love and reason; and tbat
if she remains obdurate, you are go
ing away with the firm determination
to forget her. I am quite sure this
will bring her around she's a wom
an, you know! Then when she con
sents, let the next thing be a wedding
before the old men can change her by
appeal or threat."
Thomas felt that this was the
dernier resort, and he would adopt
it If it should fail, be would be In
no worse condition than at present.
He accordingly repaired to Sibley.
While there vacillating between his
resolve and trepidation, and almost
decided to press his , suit no farther,
be received this letter from his part'
"The men have gone out on their
threatened strike at last tbat Is to
say, all save ours. An ugly feeling
prevails. The companies are trying
to get other laborers by train, but the
strikers declare they shall not work
the phosphate beds If Uiey come. I
fear trouble. Both aides are equally
determined, but the sheriff appears to
be In sympathy with the laborers.
Hare you delivered that ultimatum
yet? Be sure that you do not let your
courage oose out at the last moment
It la sure to work.
"WILLIAM If. JAY."
This decided Thomas. He had aa
Interview with Miss lmli at
which must have proved satisfactory.
for that evening he wire nis psnaoi r
"Will arrive by 4 o'clock train, ar
at latest by 4:40. Have Rev. Whit
man at City Hotel."
Jay smiled, notwithstanding the ser
iousness of the tabor situation, and
went about putting things in readi
ness; then waited impatiently for the
earliest train. It was delayed, for it
wag crowded with Uborers coming to
take the place of' the strikers, and
there came nigh being a wreck at one
At last the 4 o'clock train hove in
sight, but Just behind was also the
4:40. What If Colonel Lovell naa
learned of the elopement and followed
on the latter? The mob of miners
urrou nded both trains, and refused
to let any one get out There was s
great hubbub, and it was made wors
as nen in charge of the laborers suc
ceeded in breaking through the cordon
of miners. There were two or three
shots fired, and, rushing to the win
dow, Thomas saw that Colonel Lovell
had got out of the hindmost train and
was making frantic efforts to reach
the one in which he and Miss Lovell
were. The old gentleman was very
red in the face, and he was not using
the choicest language as the strikers
endeavored to check his advance.
After the report of firearms sounded,
Thomas heard the sheriff demanding
to know who had made matters worse
by such a resort to violence.
"See that old gentleman yonder with
the long gray hair and side-whiskers?"
said Thomas quickly, directing the
sheriff toward Colonel Lovell. "He
is the man most to blame; arrest him,
and I think comparative quiet can be
The sheriff rushed off and selied the
colonel. The latter protested, but
bis protests were ignored. He was
dragged off by a deputy at the sug
gestion Of the sheriff, and was soon
out of sight; though before he disap
peared he shook his fist at Thomas,
who knew by that that lie had been
seen, and that the sheriff had in all
probability i'.vsa. tne name of bl ac
cuser to the old gentleman in durance
Late that evening, while Thomas
and his bride were sitting In the par
lor of the City Hotel, Colonel Lovell
came in In custody of an officer. He
bad recovered from bis rage, and there
was a grim smile on bis face.
"The fool sheriff does not seem to
"The sheriff doesn't seem to know
know me," he said. "I guess. Thomas,
you will have to become bond for my
appearance before the magistrate to
morrow. I don't want to pass tha
night In Jail!"
Took Him at Hit Word.
A Cbtcagoan tells a most amusing
story of an incident in the experience
of a newspaper friend of his. The
friend was city editor of a great daily,
and In the course of his manifold du
ties it fell to his lot to take to task
one of his reporters. The reporter in
question was an Englishman, slow of
thought and action and miserly ot
speech. Through the tirade to which
be was subjected he said nothing, and
when it finally ended he lefj. the pres
ence of his superior without any com
ment. But, as the result proved, he
did some tall thinking. City editors
when "riled," aa is well known are
not particularly choice or economical
in the language they bestow on their
unfortunate reporters, and among oth
er things the Englishman had been
told that he was no better than In
fact, was a crazy man, and tbat his
proper habitat was a lunatic asylum
and not the ball bedroom of a Chicago
boarding house, which be occupied.
Tbe Englishman took bis part of the
city editor's remarks as his text and
acted upon tbem. He promptly went
to an asylum, had himself thoroughly
examined by three or four alienists,
and secured from them an official cer
tificate to tbe fact that he was sane.
With this he appeared at the office of
bis paper tbe next day, and, entering
the city editor's sanctum, be slapped
It down "before his astonished and dis
mayed superior. "Now, you go and
get one," was bis only comment, and
for once that city editor capitulated.

The agents of tbe Canadian govern
ment whose advertisement appear
elsewhere In your paper and who will
be pleased to furnish full information,
tell me tbat within the limits of the
tract there are two distinct varieties
of solL One la a rich blsck loam, and
the other Is a somewhat lighter loam,
containing a small admixture of asnd.
There appears to he no appreciable
difference between the fertility of these
two kinds or soil. Both are alluvial
In their characteristics, both are mar
velously productive, and both rest
upon a subsoil of clay. Tbe ad
vantage of this formation Is that it
retains the heat ot the day during the
night, and Is favorable to the early
maturity of crops. Every kind of
crop will here attain the highest per
fection ot quality. Tbe land Is admir
ably adapted for stock-raising and
dairy farming, aa well as growing
grain. Some Idea of the richness of
the natural grasses of the prairie may
be formed from tbe fact that mors
than 200 tons of bay were gathered,
within a short distance of Saskatoon
and stored up for use during the win
ter. A growth so luxuriant demon
strates beyond all possible question tbe
suitability of tbe land for pasturing
cattle, and no doubt this Important In
dustry will be largely carried on.
Nature has been lavish In her gifts
to this territory. Not only is the soli
of unexampled fertility, hut the climate
is delightful and healthy. Such is the
testimony of every settler, and this
testimony is confirmed by enthusiastic)
opinions from every traveler, explorer,
missionary or newspaper correspond
ent who has ever visited this far
famed Saskatchewan Valley. In form
er years vast herds of buffalo came
here to winter from tha elevated
storm-swept regions south of the
United States boundary line, proving
thereby the adaptation of these rolling
prairies to the purpose of raising
stock. The land Is dry, with sufficient,
but not excessive rainfall, capable of
early cultivation In the spring, and
free from summer frosts. The config
uration of the country renders artifi
cial drainage unnecessary, and pre
vents tbe accumulation of stagnant
pools; mists and fogs are seldom seen.
The days of summer are full of sun
shine, under tbe genial Influence of
which crops rapidly ripen. Autumn
is characterised by an almost unbroken
succession of fine weather, during
which the crops are safely garnered.
In winter It la cold, but extremely ex
hilarating and pleasant, owing to tha
wonderful dryness and bracing quail
