Song to the Rose Legend,
"rUNE-I Am a Poor, Forsaken Lover."
Oh, to the ,god and the lovely
goddess,
. Whose hearts are linked by
Beauty's hand;
Oh, peace and, love to the angel
goddess,
Where ro.es bloom in the fairy
land.
The god of Love in the land of
roses,
In smiles of love saw the god
dess, too;
4 From the lips oh, then, of the
angel goddess,
The beautiful rose received
its hue.
Oh, may the god of Love and
Beauty
And that of the rosebud never
part;
it3 shapes are all so sweet and
lovely,
Its shaped so near like the god
dess Heart.
Its folds are filled with :ove and
bdauty,
So is the life of the golde33,
too;
J8Q from the lips of the angel
goddess
The beautiful rose received
its hue.
Here's to the god of Love and
Beauty,
. Here's to the angel goddess,
too;
Who breathed the roses full of
sweetness,
And kissed them full of love
for you.
.Sweet is the story of the
roses
We know the words we've
used are so;
T' e key that will unlock this
story,
This wide old worhl shall
never know.
Now, if their hearts were linked
as lovers,
With Love's sweet links of
precious gold;
You need not wonder of the
sweetness
In the rose leoend that we
have told.
With angel goddess sweetly
sleeping,
We know this story she will
keep);
When the god and goddess meet
in glory,
Tfhis rose leg mnd they still will
keep. H. J. BROWN.
Plainville, Ga., April 29.
In the Cool of the Evening.
In the cool of the evening,
when the low, sweet whis
pers waken,
When the laborers turn them
homeward, and the weary
have their will,
When the censers of the roses
o'er the forest-aisles are
shaken,
Is it but the wind that cometh
o'er the far green hill?
F'or they say 'tis but the sunset
winds that wander thro'
the heather,
Rustle all the meadow-grass
and bend the dewy fern;
They say 'tis but the winds that
bow the *reeds in prayer
together,
And fill the shaken pools wvith
fire fliong the sadoiwy
burn.
In the beauty of the twilight,
in the Garden that He
loveth,
They have sveiled His lovely
vesture with the darkness
of a name!
Ti.hrough His Garden, through
His Garden it is but the
wind th t m weth.
No iMore; but 0, the miracle,
the miracle is the same.
In the cool of the evening, when
the sky is an old story
Sldwly dying, but remember
- ed, -ay, and loved with
passion still.
Hush! . . . the fringes of His
garment,, in the fading
golden glory,
Softly rustling as He conieth
o'er the far green hill.
--LAlfred Noyes.
"War is Hell."
"War is hell."
Ah, well!
We pray, "Our Father,
Thy kingdom come."
Then build our ships
And forge our guns
To kill Thy sons,
Our brothers.
Then pray that Thou wilt well
Direct our shot and shell,
And give us help
In making hell.
"War is hell."
Ah, well!
I"Peace on earth"
The angels sang.
Ah, Christ, we worshil) Thee
'Mid clang of arni
And battle's roar,
Where hate and wrath
Shed human gore,
And think we serve Thee w'ell
With cruel shot an'l deadly shell,
In making hell.
"War is hell."
Ah, well!
"God is love" we say
To Hin we pray
To win the day,
To help us slay
That we may well
Perform our part
In making hell.
"War is hell."
Ah, well!
"Thy will be done on earth;"
Not yet.
Useless the prayers we raise,
God will not change our ways.
Man car ses all man's woe,
Man is man's friend or foe;
His to say, war or no,
His to stop shot and shell,
His to quit making hell.
-[David B. Page.
Optimistic to the End.
Some time ago there was a
flood in western Pennsylvania.
An old fellow who had lost
nearly everything he possessed
was sitting on the roof of the
house as it floated along, when
a boat aphroached.
"Hello, John."
"Hello, Dave."
"Are your fowls all washed
away, John?"
"Yes; but the ducks can
swim," replied the old man.
"Apple trees gone?"
"Well they said the crop
w~ould be0 a failure, anyhow."
"I notice .the flood's away
abos e your window."
"That's all right, Dave.
Thenm winders needed washin',
anyhow. "-Phila. Ledger.

* * * But there is that
which is stronger than the indi
vidual preference for Mr. Bryan
-deeper than personal synipha
thy and sentiment-the convic
tion that he stands for some
thing other than equivocal com
promises working their ends'
through the arts of expediency
laid in dicker and barter; that
he means something not em
braced by private arrangement,
reached in dark and distant
places; that his very simplicity
and lack of prudence give the
people guarantees that he can
not be cajoled or bought or bul
lied, but may be relied on to get
his face against low politics and
high finance, sending the Bel
monts aid Ryans of Democracy
to keep company with the Har
rimans and Morgans of IRepub
licanism.
It is unfortunate for Gov.
Johnson that he should even
seem to be the choice of the
men who stood immeCiately be
hind Judge Parker four years
ago that he should appear at
Denver under the patronage of
a group of unififiuential though
pretentious newspapers, 'which,
as a rule, voice the plans and
schemes of these, and thaiit
money to finance his candidacy
should appear anywhere Upon
the scene as it has appeared.
These men plainly tell us that
if we nominate Bryan they
won't give us a cent. They ai:e
supported by a local press, stand
ing for little else than .corporate
wealth, knoving nothing of the
country at largre, not caring for)
anything outside the confines of
a dollar-grabbing, sky-scraping
provincialism-of big houses and
little mien -vhose business has
grown as corrupt as its society,
and whose politics is more cor
rupt than either. They insult
decent people alike by their
effrontery an( their money.
They furnish us so many addi
tional reasons for declaring that
upon a straight issue between
the republic and the plutocrocy,
we shall stand for the republic.I
In short, and, in fine, gentle
men of the East, if you are re
solved to have it so, we have
come to a parting of the ways.
But, if you will take the coun
sels of an 01(d friend, you wvill
stop a little and think a lick or
two. You cannot beat Bryan
at Denver. If you could, you
would have on your hands a re
production of 1904. And then?
Why, this, that, instead of
Bryan you would have Hearst
to reckon with; Rienzi of the
sections and of the yellow press,
with a bag of gold, maybe as
big as your owvn. Better take
Bryan wvhile you may. If you
be Democrats, good and true,
swvallowi ng your doubts as we
have swallowed ours, you wvill

Carlotta and Napoleon.
Gen. Henrico d'Alnionte Nas
from 1863 to 1866 the ambassador
of Emperor Maximilian of Mex
ico to the court of Napolean III.
The most 'interesting and - most
pathetic episode to whiqh d'A
monte was a witnessand which
is vividly described in his ne
moirs is the meeting between
the scheming French emperor
and Maximilian's wife, the beau
tiful and ambitious Carlotta,
who shortly before the catastro
plie at Queretaro had come to
Paris to invoke Napoleon's aid
for the tottering throne of her
husband. . But Napoleon III.,
who for his own perfidious, pur
poses had by promises and allure
ments induced Maximilian, then
archduke of Austria, to accept
the "restored" throne of Monte
zuma, faithlessly abandoned the
unfortunate prince to his cruel
fate as soon as he realized his
schemes to be impracticable.
Even at her arrival in Paris,
Carlotta's mind was already in
such a high state of irritation
that it was deemed advisable to
have Gen. d'Almonte at her
side during the meeting with
Napoleon, which took place in
the enipress' -apartments at the
Grand Hotel do Paris.
What lends special interest to
that interviewv is the fact that
the empress, crazed by despera
tion and fear for her husband's
safety and by Napoleon's un
sympathetic attitude, hurled a
curse at the latter which in time
was indeed fulfilled to the very
letter.
"The empress." says Gen.
('Aliioite, "pleaded, partly on
her knees and in the most be
seeching terms, with the stony
Frenchnaii to no avail. Then
it was that I witnessed the most
harrowing and dramatic scene
of my life. Frantic with grief
and excitement, the empress,
wiih drain mouth and flashing
eyes, spraig to her feet, extend
ing )both her hafnds toward the
retreating emperor.
"'Leave me,' she yelled in a
voice that cut through me like
a sword-'leave me, but go laden
with Imly curse-the same curse
that God hurled at the first mur,
derer. May your own house and
throne perish amid flames and
blood, and when you are hum
bled in the dust, powerless and
disgraced, then shall the angel
of revenge trumpet into your
ears the names of Maximilian
andl Carlottat'"
At Sedan and by the revolu
tion in Paris, Sept. 4, 1870, the
unhappy Carlotta's curse was
fulfilled to the letter.-[Capt.
Charles Kiener.
The Poorest Scholar Imaginable.
The other day a professor leaving the
tuiversity was approached by a seedy
indlividual, who pathetically asked:
"Won't you help a poor scholar with
ai dime?"
The coin bestowed, the learned man
said:
"You tell me you are a poor scholat?'
"sure," answered the other. "I nev
er wvent to school in me life. So long."

Preparing Hubby Por the Woret.
A hospital sister summoned the wife
of one of her patients. into her private
room and began to tell the womian
gently that the doctors thought very
badly of her husband.
"Well, miss, that's jes' wot I sez to
'in iawst visitini' day. 'Trm' I sea,
'I think you're breakin' up,' I sel. 'But
we'd miss yer wages of. a Saturday,' I
sez, 'if so be as it pleased the Lord to
talk. e r. ".-Cruhil.,m
