The Problem of the Future Life Had
the Dominant Intercut.
A reader of the "Life of Tennyson , "
by his son , will be struck by the facb
that no subject interested him so deep
ly as the problem of the future life. He
will also observe that it was always a
problem to him , one that he was con
stantly raising , that wonld not stay set
tled. To be sure , he was a believer in
immortality , bnt not a restful believer.
He was all the time digging up the
roots of his faith to be euro they were
alive. The old question wonld not stay
unanswered. The reader of his poetry
observes the same thing. He is always
on the side of faith , but of a somewhat
disturbed faith. He belonged to that
"metaphysical society" which invited
into its membership believers of all
shades , with all shades of nnbelievers ,
whose object was to raise and answer
doubts about God and the future life.
He was the spokesman of the scientific
doubt of the age , fluttering over the
dovecots of faith , but hardly settling
and resting and nesting therein.
One observes the contrast with this
fluttering faith who reads the poems of
Milton , with their aoidingjfaith in the
future life. This is the spiritual con
trast between "In Meraoriam" and
"Lycidas. " In Milton's requiem , even
under its paganized form , there is a ro
bust and jubilant faith in God and
eternal life. No question enters. The
mind and heart are satisfied. The dear
friend is beyond all doubt among the
saints and choirs above. One regrets
that Tennyson's mental structure per
haps could find positiveness and rest on
questions of politics or poetry , but
mnst perennially dnbitate to be sure ,
with the hopeful balance of probability
over questions of faith. "I believe I
know , " he once said , "the quantity of
every word in the English language
except scissors , " but one seems to de
tect a tremnlonsness in his best expres
sion of faith , "I hope to meet my Pilot
face to face , when I have crossed the
bar. " Independent.
Made From the Stoutest of Leather.
A Word About Hand Hold * .
The reins of a set of single harness
are each about 13 feet in length , those
of a double harness about 15 feet. For
business harness reina are made of
leather , tanned black ; the reins of car
riage harness are made of russet colored
Reins require to be very stout , and
they are almost always made of steer
hide , the leather of which traces are
made , these , however , being of more
than one thickness. Occasionally linea
for light or for cheap harness are made
of cowhide , but not often. As a rule the
best of leather is used for the reins ,
even in cheap harness. There can be ob
tained from the hides of leather suitable
for reins strips from seven to nine feet
in length , so that reins are always of
necessity made in two pieces.
The loops , or hand holds , often seen
on the reins of track or road horses are
commonly made of lighter leather
stitched together and then sometimes
stitched to the reins , bnt more often se
cured to them in such a manner that
they can be shifted on the reins to suit
the convenience of the driver. The
three loop hold , which is called the
Boston hand hold , is commonly used for
track driving. The single loop is the
one used by most drivers on the road.
There are patent hand holds made of
metal. The wooden buttons sometimes
seen on reins , used as hand holds , are
made in pairs , one button of each pair
having a stem , with a thread cut on it ,
which goes through the rein and is
screwed into the other button of the
pair on the opposite side. Now York
Sowing Pansy Seed.
During early October is a good time
for sowing pansy seed for next spring's
supply of plants for bedding out. The
reason for fall sowing out of doors is
that the plants are not then subjected
to the hot , drying influences of- the
house , which are so likely to bring on
red spider and other tioublcs.
Prepare a bed of very rich , porous
loam on a well drained location. Place
over it a fiamo to be filled with forest
leaves as a protection to the little plants
over winter. After sowing the seed in
the bed sift a very light covering of soil
over the seed , merely enough to hide
them. During the process of germina
tion never allow the bed to dry'out , as
moisture is essential to perfect germina
tion of any seed.
As severe weather approaches cover
the bed with a few inches of litter of
some sort , forest leaves being preferable.
At the proper time in the spring the
seedlings may bo pricked out of the soil
in the seedbed and transferred to the
bed in which they are to bloom. Wom

One Day at n. Time.
It is a blessed secret , says the British
Weekly , this of living by the day.
Any one can carry his burden , however
heavy , till nightfall. Any one can live
sweetly , patiently , lovingly , purely ,
till the sun goes down. And this is all
that life ever really means to us just
one little day. Do today's duty. Fight
today's temptations , and do not weaken
and distract yourself by looking for
ward to things you cannot see and could
not understand if you saw them. God
gives us nights to stint down the cur-
bain of darkness on our little days. We
cannot see beyond. Short horizons
make life easier and give us one of
brave , true , holy living.
