After the rain hath wailed her garments
Over the field and over the pUia ,
Then coaaeth jocund'. Usuhiag sunshmr
A work! of joy ia her gleamfflg tram .
Dowa from thebluey vatths of the heavens
Sheer from the heights the swntMnr falls,
GiVJiag the earth wife a sudden glory ,
Ffaag from the lucent, azure walk.
Joy unfurk all her flaming banners,
Life leaps up from the sluggish dust,
And hope returns with returning sunlight
Hope for the future, hope and trust.
After the ram. hath traued her garment
Silvery fringed over field and dam,
The glorious suashme follows after
AadfiBs the world with song again.

Out from the fkecy folds of the clouds ,
Ob hffl aad prakie and plam ,
The Spring god shakes with a liberal hand
The silvery guerdon of rata .
And the sleeping grasses lift their heads
And peep from the sodden earth ,
And the flowers stir m the wombs of mould
And keg for their hour of birth.
And the sound of the ram is sweet to the ear
Like the rustle of stik on the floor ,
And its message tells us the spring is here
In waiting outside the door.
William Reed Duoroyv in
Sioux City Tribune.
London, because there was man I
knew comin' here, too, an' I wrote to
Cynthy to come right over as bood as
she could, an we'd live aour lives aout
here; fer bad as it was here, nothin' on
top of creation could temp' me to go
back, not even her pretty face."
He stopped a minute and a halt closed
his eyes, and I fancy he was calling her
pretty face back through the thirty

"Yes, but it was wusa when 1 got ber
reply. She told me she hedn't bed a
happy minute Eence 1 left, although she
hedgone up toSaratogy, but the water
tasted like something was into it, an
she'd .come away after one day, an' was
now on the farm at Goodspeed's Land
ing. An' she said that ef rd been bo
sick the'd proba'ly die, an' Bhe couldn't
bear to think of bein' heaved into the
Atlantic, an' must stop where she was.
Ah me! Sence then we've be'n as lovin,
as we could be, writin' reg'Iar an' re
memberin' each other's birthdays an'
aour weddin' annivetsariee; but we aint
Bot eyes on each other, an' won't until
we're' both safe on that other shore they
tell us abaout. An' I hope thet trip'll
be a smooth one.'

"She runs the old 'farm as I never
could have run it. She's a born farm
er, that wife of mine is. She has a
hired man to help, but she does a good
share of the work herself, an' every year
she sen's me halt the airnieg'e; an' I
live on here, hatin' it all an' hopin' for
the time to come when the ocean'll eith

will overcome her dislike to the trip.
Married life aint e'zac'Iy pleasant so fur
apart, but I c'n truthfully say we've
never quar'led sence I come here, an' I
aint seen a woman sence I landed that
could hold a candle to Cynthy. Cynthy
is a pretty gal."
Shortly afterward the old man retired
to his own room, and then my friend,
who bad not spoken once since we came
out, wickedly hinted that maybe Mr.
Talntoronly imagined that he loved
Cynthy. and that they were happier
separated; but I hate to spoil idyls in
thpt way. To me it is very beautiful,
the thought of that dear old lady in
Connecticut, who runs the farm and
writes loving letters to hnr expatriated
spouse and sends him a share ot the
profits, but who cannot overcome her
antipathy to the unstable sea. And
when I think of Mr. Taintor as he ap
peared that evening in Bloomsbury,
with his honest Yankee face, and his
loya'ty to Yankee traditions, and his
ardent love for his absent wife, I say,
"Hurrah for both of them!'

The hope of the leaders in the move,

sleeping rooms forout-of-ton members,

April the fifteenth, sys of "Town Top
re," who are at the Oliver Theatre this
afternoon and evening:
"The biggest bit that has been made
in St Joseph this season was that made
by Mr. W. H. Mack and his company of
camedianB at the Lyceum yesterday af
ternoon and evening. Two good audi
ences greeted both performances and the
applause at times was deafening. The
company is composed of actors of un
usual ability. Mr. W. H. Mack, in the
double role of "Willie Pay" and "Bertie
Chiuaway,' is completely satisfactory.
Willie Dunlay, who also has a double
role, that ot the tramp and the detec
tive, is better than the average actor
seen in roles ot this kind. Emma Lit
tlefield is a clever actress, and captured
the audience at the start. May Phelps,
in singing the ''New Born King," dem
onstrated the fact that she has a su.
perior voice." The company will close
its engagement here with tonight's per
