Only a brief summary of Mr. Cleve
land's two recent lectures on the Vene
zuela Affair was given to the public,
the lectures having been especially copy
righted for appearance in the June and
July numbers of The Century Magazine.
Few except speciaLatudents are aware
of the long history of the connection of
the United States- with the subject.
-AtnoDg the interesting points brought
out in the lectures, and not reported,
may be mentioned Mr. Cleveland's
scathing remarks on the relation of the
senate to treaties formulated by the ex
ecutive branch of the government. The
lectures constitute Mr. Cleveland's most
important contribution to history.
The Blessing of Silence.

thinking resembles the hunter who
shoots without aiming," says the noted
This is essentially an age of confusion.
8itting in our offices or walking on the
streets our senses are confused by a
medley of discordant sounds the con

the shrieking of whistles, the clamor of
newsboys and peanut venders, all to

Lord, give me sleep or I die,
From night till morning k my cry;
My heart beak so wearily,
Tae hours pass so drearily.
If my work on earth k done,
If my race k nearly run,
Oh, give me sweet patience to bear
whatever thy loving care
Sees fstttag, that I may be
Prepared for Eternity.
