Thc Wandering JOWCH.
ET JANE T. H. GROSS, II
"On?e CTery hundred years th? Wander-',
ing Jew and the Wandering Jeweas, api
proaoh Behring's Strait, and, kneeling,
vainly Btretch forth their arma over the
water toward each other."-OW Legend.
Once more a hundred years have paused,
A hundred years with all thou* toil and
Once moro I kneel upon this icy shore,
And reach my arms to theo, but roach
I wait, BO wearily, I wait;
One pressure of thy baud I crave;
Between na rolls tho sullen wave -
The cruel wave of Behring's Strait.
I've strayed .through forest green and
Havo heard the gladsome children at
Havo seen collected round tho ancient
Young men and maidens at the close of
And on I've walked by gato and stile,
Nor rested 'neath the shady tree,
Where all might rest-yes, all but
But on I'vo walked through many a
I've gorle through scenes of revel, mad
Have passed unheeded through the
Have paused with envy by the dying child,
And threaded haunts of waut, andcriuie,
Then on I've walked by hall and hut,
Nor wept with these, nor smiled with
- - Alone I boro my weight of woes,
For every heart was closely shut.
I've Been the foolish fears that mortals
Tho tear ia dried, the little life is past;
They sleep, oh, God! so calmly midst tho
Why weep for woes which novor long
While wrecks of years around mo lie,
I shed no tear;" I H till walk on
Aye, centuries have come and gone,
But on I walk with tearless eye.
Tve lived and lived, and weary am of lifo
Would it might cease-this maddening
Thie everlasting war of sin and.strife,
Thia suffering with ita never ending
And still moro tiresome ia the mirth,
The senseless joy, tho giddy dance,
On which the ceuturieB advance,
And trample them unto the earth.
And what are friends? Full fifty ageB gone
I bad a friend whoso life was twined with
Her presence. like a star about me shone,
Her love WAB liko the fragrant breath of
But abo was happy, for she died
Hore than a thousand years ago;
And Ht ill I feel the fatal blow
That took her, blooming, from my side.
I seek her grave-men say I must be
They laugh and jeer whene'er I ask the
The very city where she lived is razed,
Its towers, ita walls, its aite are all
Hy pretty babes so full of gloe
Aro dead-I know not where they
I say thia with a tearless eye;
"They used to play about my knee."
None joy or grieve to Bee mo oome or go,
No sympathizing glance recalls the past;
Thia deathless life-this never-ending woe;
Ah, may I hope that it shall end at last?
I can t grow old, I cannot die,
I range and still forever rango,
I tire of change that is no change,
And look on all with vacant eye.
And only thou canst understand my dirge,
Thou wanderer, too, npon tho tcemiug
Once in a hundred years our pathB con?
This is our death, and this another
Surrounded by eternal snows,
Where icebergs lift their awful head,
We, deathless stand where all is
And Behring's flood between us flows.
Thine arms are also reaching forth to me,
Aa mine to thee, and all aliko in vain;
Between us mils tho unfathomable sea
There is no sympathy, but only pain.
Above the separating wave
Our wild and half-despairing cries
Ascend and penetrate the skies,
And ask this only boon-a grave!
Thc Two Merchant*.
When trade grew slack and notes
fell due, the merchant's face grew
long and blue; his dreams were
trouble through the night, with
sheriff's bailiffs all in sight. At lust
his wife unto him said: Bise up at
once, get out of bed, and get your
paper, ink and pen, nnd say these
-words unto all men :
My goods I wish to sell to you,
and to your wives and daughters,
too; my prices they shall be so low,
that each will buy before they go.
He did as his good wife advised,
and in the "papers advertised."
Crowds came and bought of all he
had; his notes were paid, his dreams
made glad; and he will tell to you
this day, how well did printer's ink
repay. He told us this with a know?
ing wink, how he was saved by prin?
The other in a place as tight, con?
tented was the press to slight; and
did not let tho people know, of what
he did or where to go. His drafts
fell due and were not paid, and a
levy on his goods was made; the
store was closed nu t il tho sale, and
for some time ho was in jail. A bank?
rupt now without n cont, at leisure ho
can deep repent, that he was foolish
and unwise, and did not freely ad?

story wise, yon should not neglect to
