S SOME RAMBLING THOUGHTS.

STKEKOTII TIIKOUOII CONFLICT.

Staunch and etllT
On n rugged cllll',
A iiino trpu liold faced the bitter cold,
Holding IIh pott on tho shelving cruM
OiilnM tho wanton winds In their cruel lust,
And uheii tho blast
Deeper and ileuper Its roots wero tlinrit.
Thoro camo a day when tho earthquake hiiuckn
Tortured tho valley and rent the rocks,
And tho elm treo fell at Fortune's frown,
With Its tender twigs and Its sunny crown,
Hut tho pine treo, bnfo In Its deep bet bed,
Still reared high Its oft scarred kead,
Look at tho bicycle and learn,
thou Btrlvlng and panting otie I The
swifter tho progress tho greater the
resistance; tho rider makes his own
brcoio, holdlug him back in a measure
but fanning him meanwhile. Rojoice

rest in your tracks supinely, and all
resistance will vanish; no ouo will find
in you then causo for fear, and there
fore no ono will oppose you. Look
again nt tho bicyclo and bo wise I Do
scent is over easier and swifter than
uscont. Years may bo givon to char
actor building or to fortune hunting
a moment may undo it all. Never
mind though your progress bo slow;
lot it be upward and upward only.
That is tho way tho man ought to go if
ho is to bo true to the history of his
whole race, which has had an ascent of
toilsome length and bloodstained steps.
To lovo tho easy, slothful, backward
ways to violence and vice, is to be a
traitoi to our iccoid.
Tho iiencli'ss soul. KOft bleeped in hunsuul
Whoso Idlo humors, with thulr fungus growth,
Have cer rustled fclnio tho world began,
Tho Iron case that mules a man a man
Looks longing from iilsloungo with hojf closed
To whero some dazzllugEI Uoradollcs;
And "Oh I" ho sigh", "'for some celestial car
Some magic charm to waft mo thus afar
bo might I gather gems and garner gold
To deck my jouth In (cmblaueoasof old I"
And, dreaming, longing thus he waits ami
While Indolence fresh cobweb fetters wcac,
Till, liko poor (iiillher, his strength Is bound
With light mid trivial chains so thickly wound
That In their weldcii strength he inn) not light,
Hut jlelds him 1 1 liU tn rltut cjiiiiiori' mllii
And from his gathering tramels bra vely burst,
Taking whatever ship might holp his quo st,
Pointing his prow towards tho golden west.
Still faring forward spite of wayward blast.
Columbus like ho may have won at last
And, with his trembling banner novcr furled,
becklug an E 1 Dorado, found tho world!
Seek no hurried distinction. Novor
wiser wot ds weto uttered than those
concerning the man who took a humble

rather than a blower of a personal
trumpet, Be capable Hist, bo the ser
vant of all second, and having done all
bo content to have terved rather than
to li'ive demanded service. Tho man
whom his fellows extol in their heaits
is tho ouo who lives broadly and guuul
ly and ynt lives humbly. Bear in mind
that good woik done out of sight is
none the lebs good work. It is to some
of us, likotho misei's gold, a thing to
rejoice over with supremo satisfaction,
wheio there is neither oyo to see nor
oar to listen. By all tho standards at
unlvoisal righteousness, call up your
doings to tho judgment bur of your

more important is tho sweat-begrimed

Shoveling coal and carrying ashes are

there Is honor in it.

us to live to ourselves alone. All our

It is always silly to quarrel, and tho
man who will quarrel over political
questions hasn't enough souse to last
him oves night. In U10 humble opinion
of this department tho average man is
prone to ilovoto too much attention to
politics. It is all right to grow excited
when a hot campaign is on, hut when
thero is no campaign, nnd ovorything
Is running smoothly in its accustomed
groovo, it is widely absurd to koop on
thicshing old straw Thero aro homo
men in Benttieo who can talk nothing
hut politics, and they don't know
enough about that to he intelligent. It
is needless to add that they aro insuf
ferable bores; and that busy people
hate to goo them around. Beatrice

Weducsday of this week M. S. Marsh

Dear Sir I have just rocoived tba

Those New Trains.
Railway eiicles in Oxfoul have boon
agitated of into by reports that a num
ber of new passenger trains nro to bo
put back on the road soon. It is said
to he a foregone conclusion that one

fourteen, tho old vnlloy trains, will
also in all probability bo restored. Of
com so such talk has been indulged in
boforo, but thoro aro numorous indica
tions to confirm tho belief that tho
manngomont has decided upou such a
move Oxford Standard.
