And shades of nlfht was golug;
The ground was paved with shifting sleet,

The sailor clinched a tmmbUutt matt

To the World's Unknown.
Our land abounds with monuments of art,
Memorial halls, flue statues, bronze, and
To heroes, sages, let the world impart
Her praise; I sing one song to the unknown.
The unknown heroes who have lived and died.
In silence suffering, scorning all complaint,
The hurled hopes, their Ideals and their pride,
And burdens bore when weary, worn and
The recluse soul to all the world unknown,
Save to one fait hf ul heart powerless to save,
Whose cloistered cell the world misnamed a
The path of life around an open grave.
I sing to poets whose pale lips aro dumb,
Whose ears are heavy with the din of toll.
Who to their full estate could never come
Slaves to hard circumstances and life's tur
I sing to artists whose souls caught the beam
Of light refulgent from the perfect day.
Whose hearts' recesses with rare pictures
That hands grown hard with toil fail to por
I sing to all the good, the wise, the true.
Who walk with bleeding feet life's dreary
I sing because I catch a heavenly view
Of their grand souls in more congenial

on the weatlier and other things, This

The man with mi Important iiir took the
seat next to the nmiuble looking man and
'Vacation trip, 1 s'pose," ventured the
important one. The other nodded.
Kver hear of the engagement insurance

You know in summer how very impress
ionable men are. Well, 1 represent a scheme
that is simply grejit. A man may become
engaged to a beautiful girl during his vaca
tion and upon his return to town totally
forget the fact, owing to pressure of busi
ness, hard work, and so on. Hut the girl
may remember, and then there is likely to
be trouble. Now, you take out. a policy in
our company, ami we insure you against
further worrv. t urtiiermorn
But," interposed the amiable man, "1
That may be," continued the other.
'You do not seem to be that kind, but
there's no telling what may happen. Now,
for tl a month you become a member of
our company, ami if you should be engaged
and afterward suffer with lack of memory,
and a breach of promise case looms up,
why, then we take the matter out of your
bands and settle it. See? Only one paltry
dollar a month insures perfect liberty to
you. Do you not think it would be well to
take out a policy?"
The amiable man shook his head sadly
"No," he answered, "it is too lat e. I have
been married several years." New York

What DewdropH Are.
One autumn evening when the stars were bright
1 paused to contemplate their huHt uutold,
All glittering with refulgence of pure gold.
Like gilt eyed daisies In a field of night!
And as I watched them with a deep delight
1 saw one quiver and then lose Its hold
And drop to nowhere. Soon another rolled
Adown the sky and Altered out of sight.
So, one by one, full many slipped from view;
And wondering where they fell, my couch I
When I awoke, the Dawn, behind its bars.
Was flushing pink, while sparkling drops of
Lay on the grass, and then there camo this
That dewdrops are the ghosts of falling stars!

Friendship Is not Uke love. It cannot say:
"Now la fruition given me, and uow
The crown of me Is set on mine own brow.
This is the minute, the hour and the day."
It cannot find a moment which It mar
Call that for wldch It lived. There Is no vow.
Nor pledge thereof, nor first fruits of Its hough.
Nor harvest, and no myrtle crown nor bay,
Love lives for what it may win or has won,
But friendship has no guerdon save to be.
Itself Is Its own goal, and In the past
Or future can no dearer dreams be done
Or hoped for, save Its own dear self to see
The same, and evermore unchanged to the last.

The Star is a new paper and has introduced
California!! methods of journalism into Hawaii, where,
before its advent, the Massachusetts newspaper tra
ditions of 1824 held sway. It has three prime objects:
To support the cause of Annexation of Hawaii
to the United States and assist all other movements,
political, social or religious, which are of benefit to
these Islands and their people.
To print all the news of its parish without fear
or favor, telling what gous on with freshness and
accuracy, suppressing nothing which the public has
the right to know.
To make itself indispensable to the. family circle
by a wise selection of miscellaneous reading matter.
