Let others write of battles fought
On bloody, ghastly fields,
Whence honor greets the man who wins,
And death the man who yields;
But I will write of him wdio fights
And vanquishes his sins,
Who struggles on through weary years
Against himself, and wins.
Here is a hero staunch and brave,
Who fights an unseen foe,
And puts at last beneath his feet
His passions base and low,
And stands erect in manhood's might,
The bravest man that drew a sword
In foray or in raid.
It calls for something more than brawn
Or muscle to o'ercoiue
An enemy who niarcheth not
With banner, plume and drum ?
A foe forever lurking nigh,
With silent, stealthy tread,
Forever near your board to-day,
At night beside your bed.
All honor, then, to that brave heart,
Though poor or rich he be,
Who struggles with bin baser part?
Who conquers, and is free.
He may not wear a hero's crown,
Or fill a hero's grave;
But truth will place his name among
The bravest of tho brave.
How Ccrprx) Stubbeb his Toe. ?Jersey
City is amusing itself with a bit of gossip
which in very funny to all save one per?
son, that person a young lady. Some
time ago, a grocer of Jersey City, well
to-do, young and handsome, fell in love
with a pretty school teacher, and was
apparently loved tremendously in re?
turn. The two became engaged, and
would perhaps now he married but for
an accident The school mann, on talk?
ing with a young lady friend one day,
confided to her the fact that the grocer
had plenty of money, and that as soon
as they were married, they were going
to live in a brown stone house on a cer?
tain fashionable street. The friend told
another friend in confidence, and so the
thing traveled until it reached the ears
of the grocer. He was astonished. Ho
had dreamed of a pleasant little home
over Iub store, with a wife to sympathize
with his objects and to aid him, not a
wife to spend his start toward a fortune
in mejre display. It dawned upon him
that the school teacher might be in love
with bis money rather than with him,
and he consulted an old friend, a regu?
lar Mnj. Pendennis. Maj. Pendcnnis
had a suggestion. He proposed that the
lover should put on an air of deep de?
jection before his lady love, and only
after a time explain reluctantly that he
had loaned his money without good se?
curity, and had been ruined. The grocer,
graceless wretch! followed the advice of
the heartless bachelor, and was dumb?
founded at the result. The school
teacher becama as cold as Diana,
and finally jilted him. He got back
some silverware and a gold watch and a
ring and other things that he had given
her, and that was the end of tin; love;
affair. Eventually tho truth came out
and there was woe in the school ma'am's
family. Her mother made advances to
the grocer, with a view to u reconcilia?
tion, but the grocer wouldn't reconcile.
And Jersey City, jnstas any other city
would, rolls the gossip under its tongue
Thomas Honesty was instantly killed
near the chain bridge, Washington, on
Tuesday last, by being struck on the hf ad
by a fragment of stone w hich he was
engaged in blasting.
