It is a significsat fact that the
democratic party ha# not furniahed
a President since the days of Jack
son, that they are enthusiastic over
ordure bold up to the people as an
example of greatness and ability.
The only one they seek to leven the
whole obsolete lump with is the
ghost of Thomas Jefferson, and on
the question of expansion he was at
absolute devotee. Jacksons polit
ical principle’s were so far ahead of
democratic ideas of to-day, that the
party has clearly retrograded instead
of keeping up with modern ideas
since his time. Since Jacksons
death they have not had a patriot in
the White House, and their national
policy for the past sixty years has
been so weak and unpatriotic that
conservative thinking men cannot
endorse it. At no time in that pe
riod has their administrations been
of advantage to the Republic. Al
though the Republican party lays do
claim to iufalibility, yet a traitor to
the Hug has never been found in their
ranks, and when the foundation of
the Republic haa been in danger the
voice of the people ia always beard
en ing aloud for the Moaea that baa
been their hope in the past. A party
that has been so untrue to their trust,
so false to the best interests of the
Republic, so shamefully unpatriotic
and whose every act is and has been
a blight to prosperity for more than
half a century, can never hope to en
list the sympathies of the masses.
“Nothing wasted” appears to be
the order of the day in every branch
of industry. The use of discarded
locomotive tines fur the manufact
ure of iron fence posts is the latest
illustration of this fact. The idea was
put in practice some time ago by T.
E. Culvert, General Superintendent
of the Hurlingtons Lines at Lincoln,
Neb. The advantages the Burlington
finds in its new posts are that they
will not burn nor decay like the old
style posts of wood. The cause of
failure of more than onehalf the
wooden fence posts aloDg the Bur
lington lines has been fire. The de
tails of the manufactures of the new
posts from old engine flues are so ar
ranged that two workmen can turn
out fifty posts per day. The Burling
ton will use a large number this year
to replace wooden posts. Valuing the
discarded engine flues at what they
would bring for iron fence posts are
tuined out for 15 cents a piece, about
the same as a wooden fence post

A DARK SHADOW. '»
1 never saw my mother** face;
God drew a shadow o'er my baby eye*
And there it liea
rnohangedh>y»tlme or plaoa;
But I have felt her loving breast
Breathe heart aore sighing for the Joys I miss
And felt her kiss
Upon my eyelids pressed.
I never saw God's lovely world.
But I have listened to the whispering trees
And felt the breese
That spring's sweet leaves uncurled.
1 never gased upon a rose,
But I have laid the flower against my cheek
And heard God speak
And mysteries disclose.
And he has made me understand;
Though dark the shadow that now holds me
God is behind.
Unseen 1 feel his hand
And know that from my darkened eyea
The lifelong shadow will be rolled away
One solemn day.
Oh, rapturous •urprise!
My happy lips e’en now must sing.
These ayes, unclosing In the streets of gold.
WIU first behold
The fsoe of Christ, my King.
—Feodora Bell in Good Woods.

“Soon after I entered the fire depart
ment,” remarked a hoetler of tbe city
fire department, “it was my hard lock
in responding to an alarm to rna over
and terribly injure a small boy, who
was playing in tbe street It was an
unavoidable accident, but just the same
it had its effect upon me, and for • a
time it preyed heavily on my mind and
probably would have done so until to
day had it not been for the sequel,
which righted up matters somewhat
“I kept myself pretty well informed
as to the condition of the boy, and was
extremely happy when I saw him on
the streets again and to all appearances
fully recovered from tbe injury which I
had inflicted upon him. Well, time
passed along, and, tbe boy's family hav
ing moved from the bouse where be re
sided and where we took him after tbe
injury, for awhile I did not see him,
though I occasionally beard from him.
“One rather rough night about a
year afterward our company responded
to an alarm in the northwestern part of
tbe city. On arriving at the fire I was
sent to one of tbe upper rooma of the
burning building to rescue some chil
dren who were in the room ynd who
were terribly frightened, as they had
good reasons to be, for they were in
considerable danger. There was a light
burning in the room, and the moment
I entered it I recognized the little fel
low that I bad driven over and injured.
If there ever was a little fellow who
wus carefully wrapped up in bedclothes
and with his little sister taken down
stairs and to a place of safety, you can
bet it was that boy and girl. Tbe same
look of fright was upon his face, which
I had not forgotten, but I don't think
my face looked as bad as when I had
picked him up in my arms before. I
was supremely happy in being able to
return some good for the ill I had done

Her pianissimo was like a dawn, which
crescendo’d presently into a glorious
noon of tone, which then did die away
into a quiet gray twilight of clear, me

or light or merely taking. Handel's
“Angels Ever Bright and Fair,” solo; a
duet with Brignoli, by Blangini, and a
