Why is it that the silence which fol
lows after noise seemB more oppressive
than the silence which has never been
disturbed? The contrast, I suppose,
emphasizes it. The heart of the uni
verse seems beating low and slow to
night. The moon wanes feebly through
light scattered clouds and the stars look
very far and pale. The earth seems
like a death chamber, where a painful
struggle has ended in defeat.
The echoes of dirges, marches and
sobs rise, now and then, like ghosts to
baunt the memory. The air seems full
of intangible murmurs. "The vanish
ing encounter and endeavor, of things
what are and are not in the room."
The assassin's bullet stilled forever
only one heart, but it wounded millions.
It detached countless thoughtless soula
from the feverish maelstrom of rushing,
Btrenuous, every day life and brought
them still and shocked face to face with
the uncertainty and futility of human
ity. We may drape the very sun of this
free land in mourning; we may muflle
every drum, and tune our very breath
to funeral notes, aud yet we cannot now
or ever hide our bleeding wound. To
the uttermost ends of the earth our
impotence is punished. We may hedge
about and perhaps save others, yet the
horrible, hopeless fact ilames red, that
this man, in the fullness of life and
strength, died ignominiously for what?
The highest skill ministered and when
ministration was no longer of avail, dis
sected, and showed us, learnedly, the
path the fatal ballet took. It is dis
mal comfort to learn it was a weak bul
let! It was strong enough, God knows,
to quench the light. Now it is time
Bome inspired prophet looked to the
living. If cancer lurks beneath the
fair tlesh of the Republic, then the
knife rather than decay. Abraham pre
pared to sacrifice his best-beloved. God
gave His son. Has he allowed this man
to be an expiatory offering for the mil
lions "lest they forget?"
If our well-beloved martyr, as he
passed over to the Beyond, could Bee eo
clearly "It is God's way,"' what are wo
that we dare, so long aa we wait hero,
But we do forget! Alas how easily.
"The funeral baked meats" coldly fur
nish forth the marriage feast. Scarcely
have the last strains of the dead march
from sau! died away until the tom-toms
of the Midway and the fifes of the drum
corps bhrilly sound out invitation to the
dance. Wo perhaps weep no less sin
cerely with one breath because we are
likely to laugh with the next.
If we hold high festival when our
neighbor mourns, it is not fair to hate
him, because we know he will give par
ties when crepe floats at our front door.
It is the way of the world, and the
world's way seems very heartless some
times. King Ak-Sar-Ben entered a rather
sloppy kingdom Thursday, and found a
