TRE LOST KISS.
SIpUt by the halt written rem,
WIle the pen, idly trailed n my hand,
Writes on, "Had I words to complete It,
Who'd read it or who'd understand?"'
But the little bare feet on the stairway,
And the faint, smothered lauh in the halIl,
And the eerie low lsp ol the~silence
Cry up to me over it all.
So I gathered-it up-where was broken
* The tear faded thread of my tieme,
Telling how, as one night I sat writing,
A fairy broke in on my dreani
A little inquisitive fairy
* My own little girl witti the gold
Of the sun In her hair and the dewy
Blue eyes of the fairies of old.
'Twas the dear little girl that I scolded --
"For was it a moment like this."
I said, "when she knew I was bluty
To come romplug in for a kiss'?
Come rowdying up from her mothier,
And clamoring there at my knee
For 'one 'ittle kiss for my dolly
And one 'ittle uzzer for me!'
God pity the heart that repelledl her
And the col hiand thtat turned hetr away,
--And take fromt thle Iips thIat den-iiedthr
'This answerless prayer of toda%?'
Take, Lord, from may mvim ry torek Ir
That pitiful sob of deNpait,
And thepatter and I rip o tihe littIa t . et
And the one piercing eri ,in I a' tair !
I put by the half wr-itten poem,,
While the pen, itily trailed in mly ainad,
Writes on, "Illad I wools to) comph101-te it,
Who'd read it, or who'dtjiuietNand''"'
But the little hare feet oln tihae st;airwav,
And the fainit, ttmnotheret< Il4lah inl the hall,
And the cefio low liip on the iht
Ury up to tme over it all.

Y CIARLESTON, S. C., ,1une 7.-At a
special meeting of, the Charleston
Chamber of Cominerce, held today, res
'c oliltions were passed deiouncing the
II Sherman silver purchasing law as a
ie failure, and calling upon Congress to
repeal it as speedily as possible.
at In presenting the resolutions, Jaines
le S. Murdoch, a prominent marchant and
10 navufacturer, stated that as an extra
e session of Congress was to he hold in
0' September, it woull oe well for the
ne Chamber of Conmerce, representing
e the commercial interests of Charleston,
Ll* to give expressior to its views on this
Y, important q'iestion, and endeavor to
)u Impress upon our representatives in
a both branches of Congress to what ex
ti tent our State, both comnercial and
is agricultural, is devendent on their ac
k, tion. "With banks sc:ttered throush
ot all sections or the St tte," he said, "on
,t which the country can m?wiuly depend,
he our planters will litit it dill icilt this
Ou year to get their ncew,sary stipl lies,
while thos dependent on nierehants
i and factors will not be much butter off.
c I'he sanie ( midition exists in ill parts
el of the coitry and in all lines of bisi
- ness. With greater ritural res-murces
t than any ol !er conit ry, and witn a
L1.h greater proportion of our population
devoting t.hemselves to work and
n uoney-imiking than awy o6her people
n in the world, we are toihay paying froin
at six to( eight per cent. for 1110tuony in the
he large imoney centres, on the best secur
to ities, while interest is (ioted in Eng.
'ed land at 21 to 3, in France 2 to 214, in
,. l-'lgirm, 1olland and Germany at the
saine rate, anl inI ltissial at 4 to 41.
ier ''It. whole trotible under whien the
,e- ca,intry is now laboring is want of con.

n' .Sherman act was pissed in 8t), and
helias been working with increasing bad
as effects from that day to this. Tlie laws
io f1 coilitnerce cainolt be violated with
nl imptinity any more than the laws of
iatitre, and, like them, they are often
o -lov in action, but just a sire. We
are now seeing thi effect-, of this sil
% er leirislation of 1il00. It, is very n uch
