An editor, Dctvid Parker Eiq.. who
has produced some of tlio best poetry
ever written by a cracked mar., pleased
at a lit' le incident that happened in
his family (the first occurrence of the
kind) gives vent to his feelings in the

tled MY CHILD'S OIUOIX.
One nlirht a old St. Peter slept.
He leu the door of heaven ajar.
When through a little anjrel crept.
And cuuie down with a falling star.
One summer as the uleesed beams
Of moru approached, my Mushing bride
Awoke from sweet and ple-sam dreanix,
An J fwuud that angel by her sidek
God prnnt but thin. I ask no more.
That tt hen he leaves tnie world of em.
He'll wing his way to that bright shore.
And find the door of Heaven Hpiin.
Whereupon some fellow of a 1 r:u-: iral turn of

There was uo little anirel strave i.
Nor one bceu missing all the while.
I did not sleep as you supposed.
Nor left the door of heaven ajar,
Nor lias a little angel left.
And gone down v uli a falling star.

Mr. Finch'! Hesiiiution. ,
The Lincoln Tribune and Mr. ,1'iudi
appear to have left the teiupeiuncc
work together. The Juniata Herald
says that in the last issue of that pa
per Mr. Finch "attempts to play the
role of a martyr to the temperance
c.tiise, in assigning as the reason lor
his resignation as G. V. u. T that of
duly lo his wife and child, and that
his salary has not been promptly paid by
the grand lodge." The J uuiata Herald
asserts that this does not state Mr.
Finch's true reasons for withdi awing,
and goes on to make a very serious
charge against Mr. Finch. The Her
ald is a responsible journal, and has
been one of the most able and consis
tent advocates of the temperance cause
in the slate. The Herald states that
Mr. Finch was confronted with a cer
tain document of which he was the
author, and "vras given the choice of
either resigning, or having the whole
matter made public, and he chose the
former ; hence his resignation." The
Republican was considered, on n for
mer occasion, to have misjudged Mr.
Finch; and on being convinced that it
had been misinformed made a disavow
al, so far as it was concerned, of a
charge which it had quoted from a
contemporary. That course on our
part, taken in response to Mr. r inch s
solicitations And seconded by those ef
some of his personal friends, did not
prevent Mr. Finch from engaging in a
camnaien of falsehood against The
Hepul hcan last winter and persisting
in it after he had far better reason to
retract it than we had to disclaim
statements which we had quoted.
Notwithstanding this, The Republican
lias no disposition to do other than
justice to Mr. F.nch, and therefore
foregoes prestnt lepublication of the
very grave charge made by the Juniata
Herald. If Mr. Fiuch is still as much
disposed to seek vindiction for wound
ed honor in the courts as he was when
he bi ought suit against the editor of
the Lincoln Democrat and threatened
the papers of the state promiscuously
with libel suits, the Juniata Heraid
has certainly afforded him ample oc
casion, and an occasion which he cau
notaffoidto neglect if, as we trust,
tlte charge brought by the Juniata
Herald, and the statements it has
made are without foundation in fact.
We thought that fallow would meet
justice after awhile.
We take the following from a paper
by Dr. Holland in The Century Maga
zir.e for November 'recently Scrib
ner'sj: There is no point at which personal
memness betrays itself so strongiy
and surely as it does when brought in
to relation to schemes of public im-
(S -days fle
proVement. Set a subscription paper
going through a community, to raise
money for some public object, and it
will usually sift out the mean men as
certainly as a screen will sift the dust
from a bushel of coal. We have a
great many men who are not stingy
with thtir families, who are by no
means parsimonious, yet who have
insuperable objections to giving away
any thing that does not minister
directly to their personal comfort or
gratification. A church is wanted, or
a public library, or a park, or some
thiug else for the common benefit, aud
the want and the effort to meet it
furnish a very reliable test of the
character of those appealed to. We
have rich men iu every community so
notoriously stingy, and so unfriendly
to all schemes of public improvement.
I thatjthey are not even approached for
a contribution, un me owier iiano,
we have men iu every community who
have what we call "public spirit."
Nothing that can minister to the gen
eral good ever receives a cold welcome
from them, or a niggardly response to

mat rney cannot, see inai luctuuersoip
in a family involves certain duties
toward the family support, protec
tion, mutual assistance. The head of
a family no matter how selfish and
stingy lie may be recognizes the fad
that he owes to that family shelter,
sustenance, clothing, education, etc.
Very few, too, fail to see that, as citi
zens, they owe certain duties to the
town they live in, to the state, to the
nation., They pay their taxes, and
expect to pay them. It cannot be said
that they always do this willingly or
honestly, but they know that they
must pay something for the laws that
protect them, for the roads that give
them passage across the country, and
for the support of the Government.
As heads of families and citizens of
the state, they apprehend the fact that
they owe duties whose fulfillment
costs money. What is neccessary be
yond this is that they should sea that
membership in'a social community in
volves duties just as really and dis
tinctly as family ties or citizenship.
No man cau belong to a social com
munity as all men do who are not
hermits without having imposed up
on him a great many duties. He owes
it to that community to make it, so far
as he can, intelligent, comfortable, re
spectable. There is no wise scheme of
improvement to which he does not
owe his support and .encouragement ;
and he cannot turn his back upon any
such scheme without a failure in the
ffices of good neighborhood, or with
out convicting himself of a mean sel
fishness that is disgraceful to hit, and
to the family and town to which he

Tha Power of tlio ?ti?,s.
One of the old-time e litoi s of Mich
ig.tn, says the Dctro't Free Press. w:n
boasting the otlior d-iy I hat ho had nev
er been sued fn- libel, or attacked in
his sanctum, but he wo'dd re -a'l niriny
narrow escapes. Twenty-livo )ears
a?;o ho w.ns rttnning a rod-hot paper on
the line of the Mieiiigan Central Rail
road. A man named Carson, who was
running for sonio county olliee, was
given a bad racket, and the editor re
ceived a note that if he. had anything
more to say ho might expect to receive
a good pounding. He had a still moro
bitter attack tho next week, and tho
paper was hardly mailed before in
walked Carson, tho ca-ididate, accom
panied by a brother and two cousins.
The four were strapping big fellows,
and each was armed with a horsewhip.
Tho two compositors and tlio "devil"
got out with all speed, leaving tlio ed
itor without support. Ho realized tho
situation at once, and began:
"Walk in, gentlemen; I presume you
have come to horsewhip me?"
"Wo have," they answered.
'Very well. Have you thoroughly
considered this matter?"
"It doesn't need any consideration,"
repl'cd Carson. "Yoti have lied about
ine, and I'm going t lick you within
.in inch of your life!''
'Just so, my friend, bnt first hear
what I have to say. Did you ever hear
of tho press being stopped because the
editor was cowhided?"'
Well, you never lid. Lick mo all
you chooso and my paper comes out
week after week just tlio same. Tho
power of the press is next to t!io lever
which moves tho universe. It makes
or breaks parties, builds up or tears
down, plants or destroys. Aggravate
tho editor and the press becomes a
sword to wound and kill. Wollop mo
if you will, but next week I'll come out
more bitter than ever."
There was an embarras-ing silence
right here, and the face of each horse
whippcr had an anxious look.
"It will go out to tho world to
America, Canada, England, France
aye! clear to Jerusalem, that tho Car
son family of this county live on roots
and johnny-cake; that they st'dc a dog
from a blind man; that they murdered
a peddler for a pair of two-shilling sus
penders; that the women arc club-footed
and the men work their cats when
they f-ing; that the ."
"What is the regular subscription
price to the Herald ? ' interrupted Car
son. "Only twelve shillings a year."
"Put us four down."
"Very well six djilars that's cor
rect. Run m and see me all of you,
and if any of you want to see any of
my Detroit exchanges I shall be only
too glad to serve you."
A Lion in the Wayi
Lions are one of the dangers between
Zanzibar and the great lakes. 'They
sometimes hunt game in packs of six
or eight.. Some animals show light
against them successfully. Lions nev
er venture to attack the adult elephant,
and even avoid the buffalo, unless they
are more than two to one. In general
they do not attack caravans, and never
in daytime. At m -sr. a hungry lion
may spring upon and carry oil" a strag
gler while passing through the brakes
and jungles. Hut it is otherwise at
nifht. When lious scent tho caravan
from afar, particularly if it contains
goats or b'-asts of burden, they ap
proach, and announce their vicinity by
terrific roars. Nevertheless, in a well-in-closed
camp there is no danger; tho
lions never attempt to clear tho obsta
cles, and marksmen from behind tho
palis:;d -;s can pick them lift" with al
most unfailing aim. There is danger
only when the camp is not completely
inclosed, or when those i side o 'ut
lo attack them.
