Day follows day, unci night
to night is hung;
Year after year tho sea
eons madly roll,
Yet Had me still no near
cr to my goal
Than when I roamed the flow-
7y hills among,
A free and happy child.
When I was young
Hope dwelt with me, and to
my yearning soul
Glad peans sung, now solemn
And Hope is dead, sweet Hope
to whom I clung.
Well for the slave who on
ly asks for Bleep,
The blessed sleep that is
too deep for dreams.
He nothing sees of sil
ver ladders steep
Let down from Heaven to
rivulets and streams.
And. seeing uot, will nev

Up to the light from which
the beacon gleams.

General P.iniel B. Sickles, who was
one of several war generals who spoke
at the Lansing a few weeks ago, is an
object of constant interest to New
Yorkers. The papers never let him
alone. Town Topics say?:
Frequenters of the Metropolitan opera
house and other halls of liht have long
been familiar with the noble intellectual
beauty of Gen. Daniel B. Sickles, more
affectionately known as D.in'l of Posin'.
It would be impossible for the opera to
proceed without the presence and co
operation of that illustrious warrior and
statesman. Few people care for the
opera. There is no admirer of beauty
and genius and true philosophic thought
who does not love to gaze upon the
shrinking but lovely form of Dan'l of
Posin'. Every heart jumps to the
mouth when the tap, tap of tho hero's
crutches is heard, as he comes into the
show about fifteen minutes after it has
begun. Ho never comes in be
fore for fear of attracting attention.
And between the acts how eagerly
are beautiful necks craned forward and
do beautiful eyes expand with interest
as tho great ex sheriff surveys and is
surveyed by the audience and hobbles
in and out :is quiet as an earthquake.

THE TIME TO SUBSCRIBE.
The old newspaper saying, "now is the
time to subscribe," was never more true
than at present. The timea are so full
of incident, so many important national

for a change, that no one can afford to
be without a metropolitan daily or
weekly. The St. Louis Republic, the
greatest democratic newspaper, it mak
ing a Fpeciai offer of ifs daily and Sun
day paper for three months at SI f.0. It
is SG a year by mail. The Twice-a-Week
Republic is sent two times a week
104 papers for only SI a year. In
addition to all the political news, it
prints every day a spread of general
news and features not equalled by any
