Dear Eleanor: 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, "forget?" 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 n ;: m no I T t: Bring your Fur Garments and have them repaired or remod eled, because it will be cold again this year. By the way, you can order a Fur Garment made in the latest style at 0. STEELE. ?VlRRW 143 SO. I2TH ST. - - LINCOLN. NEBR da TowNEysd caimu.
