For the Eagle.
Why am I given a heart
With the iceen and bitter woe
Of knowing that we must part,
That forever you must go.
Why must we long in vain
For the bliss that others know;
Suffer the deepest pain
For our faith why is it so?
Why doos the God of love
Raise the cross of Christ on high,
Leading us both above
By different paths O, why?
Savior in mercy, help me!
No other strength Is nigh,
While I wait the great hereafter.
When God shall tell me why.

OUB FOREMAN'S BOQUET.
There Are Two Sides to This Life.
The editor of the Winfield Visitor finds
tho sentiment expressed by tho Eaole,
touching tho reception of a boquet In our
composing rooms, too much for h'u mate
rialistic nature. So it goes; one-half the
world is being continually misjudged and
misinterpreted by the othor half. But noth
ing better could be expected from a town
where they arrest and fine harmless street-
preachers yet where they license loud
mouthed fakers and yawping quacks to
render life hideous.
The Eaglz, for its part, prefers
flowers, women, prayers and heaven and the
sentiments which cluster about these, to tho
eternal grind of the money-gettingside oflife.
Tho spirit which largely animates tho people
of some towns that wo know of is of a new
revalation, a revalation begotten of the devil.
Girls, whose eyes ought to be a guaranteo of
sweetness, give their paper bustles an extra
hitch upward and talk of business, and in-nocent-cyod
boys, wIioeq heads should
know nothing harder than their mothers'
breasts and loving arms, earnestly discuss
options and talk about the prospect of real
izing on speculative investments. Wives
become discontented and find fault with
their lot because their husbands fail to
catch-on as does somebody cho's "husband.
And now, hero comes a nowspaper to criti
cize another newspaper for indulging in
elevating sentiment. Wo wero nover more
greatly impressed with the restless spirit of
greed and gain which animates
the west than during a rido
the other afternoon down through
Connecticut. Wo wero going from New
York up to Norwich. What glimpses of
quiet life, of ocean beaches and sleepy vil
lages. A gontlo rain was falling all through
tho afternoon, with tho peace and comfort of
an old civilization UDOn every hand. Tho
low green hills rolled smoothly away upon
every side, burthened only with moss-grown
rocks and ox-eyed daisies, while tho dripping,
fern-adorned and brook-drained woodland
pastures wero redolont with butter-cups and
tho bloom of the capo laurel which crowned
every break and bank. All tb o faces on tho
trim that afternoon were strango to us, to
we sat and looked out through rain and
drank in and thought in our long continued
revory. Tho picture would probably hive-
never been recalled again but for tho criti
cism aboyo alluded to, which had tho cfloct
of bringing out tho harder, tbo more salCsh,
tho faster and strained hfo of tho west and
its almost utter lack of higher ideals and en
nobling sentiment unless tho almighty dol
lar can bo in somo way connected with it.
The poor preacher at Winfield was only ar
rested and fined bocauso be preached on the
streets. Had ho proposed to build a church
or a thnological school, or to do anythin;
which would havo meant dollars and cents
rather than God's First Temples and Eter
nal Life, all Winfield would havo fcsted
and toastod him, and novor havo thought of
sending him to a felon's cclL

The Wichita Street Hallway company bc-
There were numerous threats of mobbing
mo yesterday, but I'm on deck yot and my
i..ni, ; fairiv rmnil. No -sooner had I
reached the street than I was told that I had
played thunder with tho O. O. Brown gold
mine scheme. The minions of the law and
Mr. Brown, it was said had a job put up to
capture the representative of tho Mexican
mine, but 1 gavo the whole snap away, -too
plan was to have the marshal go on aneaa
to Fort Scott while Mr. Brown ana we goia
kintr would tako the next train.
A bogus check was made out for tho
$10,000, and when they got to the
spot where tho treasure was concealed
Brown was to give each of tho fellows S5,
so as to have thedead woadjon them, then
a signal was arranged upon which the offi
cer j were to mako a rush and capture the
pane-. Tho fellow tbreated Mr. B. with
dire vengeance if ho told anything about
tho racket, and now Mrs. Brown is badly
scared ; but there would be far greater dan
cer of him if he went with the fellow and
gavo a signal for tho officers. A friend met
mo with an immenso scheme, which he
wanted me to work up. It was tho biggest
thing ever broached here, and 1 began to
