'Ohnrter Onk' wherein the brnve Cap
tain Wndsworth concealed the charter
for the colonies of Connecticut. This
charter contained many privileges which
the liberty-loving people of that time
valued very highly.
"Penn made his treaty with the In
dians beneath a spacious , tall elm tree.
The savages said they 'would live in
love with "William Peuu and his child
ren as long as the sun , moon and stars
phould stand. '
' It was beneath the branches of the
old elm at Cambridge where George
"Washington took command and with
an army of true and brave patriots won
liberty for our land. Thus we see that
the trees of history have an intimate
connection with our country's early
"Bryant in his Thauatopsis says :
'To him who in the love of Nature
holds communion with her visible forms
she speaks a various language. '
"What of the forms of Nature are
more visible than the tree ? Let us learn
to hold communion with these visible
forms that we may listen to their various
languages. Perhaps it will come from
the rustling leaves and maybe from our
pure thoughts as we repair beneath her
shades for an hour of study , meditation
or repose. By so doing wo learn to ap
preciate these glorious manifestations
of the goodness of Almighty God to
mortal man. "
. late republican leg
islature of Nebraska has been accused
and convicted by the Omaha Daily Bee
of having enacted a very good law which
the populist Governor Poynter vetoed.
Therefore , the subjoined is reproduced
from the Bee of the 28th ultimo with
the hope that somebody will soon pub
lish the bill vetoed and the veto :
" J. Sterling Morton in his paper , THE
CONSERVATIVE , among other things up
braids the late republican legislature
because no law was enacted to enable
the people of the entire county to have
a voice in the election of all members of
their county board. Mr. Morton in this
is wide of the mark , probably from mis
information. He should know that the
legislature passed a bill restoring to the
people of this county their right to
choose their commissioners , but the bill
was vetoed by the populist governor out
of political motives. "
The June Atlantic Monthly will con
tain the opening chapters of a new ser
ial story entitled , "To Have and to
Hold , ' ' by Miss Mary Johnston , the rising
and popular young author of the bril
liant historical romance , "Prisoners of
Hope , " which has been so successful
during the past season. Miss Johnston's
work not only became immediately and
unusually popular , but is admitted by the
best critics to bo of the highest order of
historical lictiou , full of vigor and in
terest , and yet accurate and true to life
Miss Johnston's Atlantic story is
placed at a much earlier period of Vir
ginian history , that of Pocahontas and
her husband , John Kolfe. It is , how
ever , permeated with the same fullness
and accuracy of historical description
and detail , while the freshness and ex
ceeding interest of the plot will hold the
reader's attention from the very open
