Alf the World.
All the world is full of babies,
Sobbing, sighing everywhere;
Looking out, with eyes of terror,
Beating at the empty air.
Do they soe tho strife before them,
That they sob and tremble bo?
Oh, the helpless, frightened babies?
Still they come, and still they go.
All the world is full of children,
Laughing over little ioys,
Sighing over little troubles,
Fingers bruised, and broken toys;
Wishing to be older, larger,
Weeping at some fancied woe,
Oh, the happy, hapless children,
Still they come, and still they go.
All the world is full of lovers,
Walking slowly whispering sweet;
Dreaming dreams, and Duilding castles,
That must crumble at their feet;
Breaking vows, and burning letters,
Smiling, lest the world shall know,
Oh, the foolish, trusting lovers?
Still fhey come, and still they go.
All the world is full of people,
Hurrying, rushing, pushing by,
Bearing burdens, carrying crosses,
Passing onward, with a sigh;
Some there are, with smiling faces,
But with heavy hearts below,
Oh, the sad-eyed, burdened people.
How they come, and how they go.
All the earth is. full of corpses;
Dust and bones laid there to rest; j
This tho end that babes and children,
Lovers, people find at best.
All their fears, and all their crosses,
All their sorrows wearing so,
Oh, the silent, happy corpses,
Sleeping soundly, lying low.
What a Nevada Editob Has Accumu?
lated in His Sanctum.?Sitting here in
our sanctum .and, .thinking, our eye
musingly falls'-Hjp?ri, and the hand toys
with a little trinket, a keepsake, as the
world goes, a vade mtcum. It is of no
particular value as values are reckoned,
but it is useful to tho hand and a trea?
sure to the heart. A thousand times
taken up, a thousand times found in
readiness, it has come to be like a fond
friend waiting to anticipate a want and
ready to supply it And yet it is but a
trinket?a 'senseless thing?merely the
old dragoon revolver^we-wrenched from
Buffalo'HIB,^hen he camo charging in
here to ^pUursie vus from writing a
police iteWabfraVflim. Wo buried him -
in our little grave-yard, baok of tho
office; but wo can never gaze upon that
little pistol without a feeling of admira?
tion for his misplaced and unfortunate
temerity. _ < . fj ;< . ?
That classically moulded limb, pickled
and dried, hanging 'cn the wall, is the
left shank of Six-toed Pete, the great
Mud Springs desperado, who came to re?
monstrate" with'us for publishing his
marriage under the head of "deaths."
It was a printer's blunder, not ours; but
no matter, we riddled him with that re?
volver, and then toe!; off his leg at the
hip joint with the first slash of our truBty
little hatchet; wo should have completed
his dismemberment, had he not run
away, coward that he was, His two big
brothers, who came for that leg and
revenge, both rest in our little grave?
yard,'back of tho office; peace to their
The jagged and knotty old Feejee war
club in the corner, this dilapidated noso
and broken jaw, as well as this bullet,
which we still feel over more stinging
away in tho interior of our right lung,
were left us by old Blifkins, the editor
of the Gospel Eagle, who came on from
the East to kill us for connecting his
name with the Beeoher soandal and
proving that he was tho father of Bessio
Turner, as well as the bosom friend of
Susan B. Anthony., Our trusty pistol
and little hatchet did not fail us, and
he, too, lies, editorially, in our quiet
little grave-yard, at the back of the office.
That elongated scoop-shaped memento
which wo use for a waste basket was
once the ear of a Virginia City news?
paper reporter. He would persist in
stealing our item, so wo were obliged to
fo and cut off his ear. with our litt 1 o
stehet, fallaciously thinking that would
stop him. His head goes next We
cannot gaze upon that ere waste basket
without a sentimental degree of reflec?
tion stealing diagonally across our sen?
sibilities. Overflowing as it now is with
rejected manuscript in exasperating
prose, abortive poetry, obituary rhymes
and soul-harrowing, literary trash gene?
rally, was it not always crammed full of
still worse trash, iri the way of no ac?
count items, dog-fights, swill-cart acci
ofeuta^?tfd ail sorts of sensations, lies,
gauzy humbugs and cock and bull
stories? Ah! bow eagerly that capacious
gullible ear drink them in. May it not,
in Borne unknown and mysterious way,
have become so saturated with those
items that perhaps somo may yet eling
to it as the perfumo of flowers around a
vase which held them? It is a thing of
more use than beauty, but it is like
our other keep-sakes, overflowing with
subtle emanations and personal re?
minders. All this may bo sentimental
fanoy, but it is fanoy without a fault; it
may be nonsense, but it is a nonsense
which will make the world better if acted
upon, for thoughts may bo thus kept
from wandering and hearts from stray?
ing till the feet learn to tread the upper
paths of life and love the better way!

It is a difficult matter to associate the
ridiculous with so grave a business ru?
hanging a man, but there is something
very funny in the farewell letter of a co?
lored murderer who expiated his crime in
Atlanta, Qa., lost Friday. He took oc?
casion in his letter to say to his father
that he would bo as dead in four hours
'as a dead pig in the sunshine," because
"a dead pig would know nothing and so
would he. For a serio-comic simile
under the shadow of death, this may not
be equal to the last words of some of the
historic wits, but it is quite as original
and entirely true to nature.
