A Foem by the tVltim eo the St. Lenat
The following verses, published in the 8L
Louis Oloe-Democret, are from the pen of
the late Colonel A. W. Slaybemk:
Upon my mantel in a row
Four simple pictures glow,
With shining frames about them placed
Of neat and modest taste;
Four images of daughters mine.
Whose faces beam with light divine,
And here I've made my shrine.
The place is more like sacred ground
Than any I have found;
No dome of fresoo reared by art
Can so impress my heart;
'Tas here I feel remorse begin,
With contrite grief for every sin;
And faults that close to crime skin,
Make heaven so hard to win.
And here my soul, remote from erowds,
Is shadowed by no clouds;
Aloof at last from tangling care,
I lift to God my prayer,
And he that doth in secret see
In secret seems to answer me,
For sake of these that I may be
From secret sin kept free.
Alone, I seek at this pure shrine
The face of God divine,
In public no one is sincere,
For all are tinged with fear;
But here my heart is all laid bare
To him who doth for sparrow care;
To him I lift a parent's prayer:
"Wilt thou these children spare?"
This is my prayer I say and feel,
As at my shrine I kneel,
And lo! though absent far and wide;
I think them at my side,
And hosts celestial come and go
On radiant wings as white as snow
Till heaven above and heaven below
Have made my shrine aglow.
But no intruding eye could see
The light that shines on me;
Four little pictures on the wall
To others would be all;
And yet to me the thought is given
Of such the kingdom is of heaven,
And from this shrine despair is driven.
By hope to be forgiven.

Warm around its feet

With a yawn and a gap,
And a dreamy little cap
We will go, we wall go
To the Landy-andy-pandy
Of Noddy-eddy poddy,
To the Landy-andy-pand
There in the shadow-maker's tent,
After the twilight's soft descent,
We'll lie down to dreams .
Of milk in flowing streams;
Aun the shadow.-maker's baby
WIn lie down with us, may be,
On thesoft, mossy pillow of the sod.
In a drowse and a dose,
All asleep from head to toes;
We will lie, we will lie
In the Landy-andy-pandy
Of the Neddy-oddy-poddy
In the Landyandy-pand
Then when the morning breaks,
Then when the lark awakes,
We wall leave the drowsy dreams,
And the twinkling, starry streams;
We will leave the little tent,
And the wonders in it pent,
To return to our native sod.
With a whoop and a skip,
And ajemp And slip.
We will some, we will come

Last nilb as a Commercial re
porter was loesing through the car
ridors of the Gait Howe listening to
the friendly clatter of the ea
tgneers, a group of veterans, seated around
one of the pillars, laughing over old stores,
drew the news man tward them. "Did
you ever hear how Jim HBamtt brought De
runlak from Nashville to Louisville' asked
one of the Loouville engineers. "Well, you
all know Jim, I gues, or know of him. He
can make the fletest time on the Louisville
and ashville when he wants to. He has
been in a dosen wrecks and got ht In all
of them. I don't believe there is a sound
bone in little Jim's body, but the more
bumps and knocks he gets, the faster he
wants to ran. About two years
ago De Funaak was down at Nashville and
had important business that requlred his
immediate presence in Louisville. He was
then general manager of the Louisville and
Nashville and ordered the road clear bo
tween the two cities. Then he looked for
an engineer to haul him through. Hamett
was just in off of his run and De Funlak
knew he was just the man. He sent for him
"'Mr. Hamett, I want to get to Louisville
as soon as possible. The road's clear; you
won't find any obstruction. Will you take
"Hamett's eyes sparkled, but he touched
his hat and said quietly: 'I'll try, sir.' Any
man who knows Jim Hamett would know
what that meant. Deo lunlak had his car
coupled on right next to the tender and an
other car behind. Jim climbed up into his
engine (he can't walk straight since the last
wreek,) and there was, a kind of a smile
hanging around his mouth. The train
pulled out of the depot at Nashville as the
negro porter was Axing the dishes in the
side-beard. They started ouat a pretty
lively gait and went on increasing it. The
conductor in the back car began to get un
easy for be hadn't heard Jam's instructions.
Every minute the train went faster and fast
er. Houses and trees and fences became a
blurred line. The cars Jumped and rolled
and rocked like mad animals wanting to
leap from their place of confinement. The
porter began to look frightened. The train
instead of slacking increased its speed. No
body in De Funlak's car could remain in the
seats without desperately clutching to the
seat in front. It seemed impossible for the
cars to remain on the track, they bounded
and rolled so violently. The dishes in the
sideboard rolled out, the bed fell In the
middle of the floor, chairs were rent from
their fastenings; but the porter didn't care a
straw for that-he thought his time had
come, and was praying desperately.
"De Funlak, with his expressionless face,
was calmly holding on to some straps bang
ing from the ceiling and waving at Hamett
through the back door to go on. The con
ductor grabbed the bell cord and nearly
jerked it off. He firmly believed that if
they escaped with their lives both he and
the engineer would be discharged as soon as
they reached the city. Jim was sitting oe
his seat in the engine calmly smiling and
paying not the least attentiou to the frantic
conductor. About a hundred miles from
Nashville Jim got a couple of hot boxes and
had to stop. He made the hundred miles in
about 87 minutes, about the fastest time on
the road. There wasn't a bit of furniture
left in De auniak's car. There was a con
fused heap of broken plates, pictures and
chairs and that was all. Jim was outside
calmly limping around, and cursing the hot
boxes between times, when De Funlak came
out of the car aid brusquely told Jim he
had made a fast run.
"'Not very fast, sir,' said Jim. 'If I bad
run as fast as she can go it wouldn't have
only broke your plates and pietures, but
there wouldn't bhave been a bit of the isdlee
of the car left. That was a mighty peoor run
sIr, a mighty poor run.' The porter resigned
a soon as he got to town and always goes
I by boat now, when be can."

An experiment with an ingenious device
by the Pennsylvania Railroad Company will
prove costly to the family of August Seeds,
a reliable employee of the concern, who has
held his position as engineer for tweaty
years. The omclals of the company on the
New York division were favorably impressed
with a patent contrivance which was lntend
ed to supersede the safety valve. This ap
paratus was to relieve the pressure on the
boiler when it reaheod 132 pounds and car
ry off the steam and heat through pipes to

WAsl2esaor, October 2S.-If one feels a
desire to sup full on honors in Washington,
thee is no way in which success is so speedy
nd certaln as an ascent o the 876 feet of
the unfinished Washington monument. Al
though no accident of any kind whaterer
has happened slnme the work was begun, ow.
g to the admirable precautions that have
been observed, the mere coontemplation of
the dangers to be avoided would give Gen.
Washington blhmeel, It he were alive, the
cold creeps. It must be remembered that
the monument is already among the highest
structurse in the world, while the transporta
tion of the gigantle blocks of stone to the
top is something which has no parallel in
this country, and has seldom been equalled
anywhere. Whether the ascent is calculated
to inspire fear or not may be Imagined frheom
the reply made by one of the highest omclals
lt Washlsgton to the inquiry: "Were you
not just a little frightened going pP'
",Frightened! I was perfectly terrifiedi" was
the hearty reponse given with all the force
The ascent is made by the elevator, which
runs through the middle of the great obe
lisk. This elevator is a mere open platform,
which does not deserve the name of the alll
vator, as Mrs. Gen. Gillory puts it; it is
rather the terrifier. Every time It goes up It
carries from five to ten tens of stone, and
the only way for visitors to get to the top is
to huddle around the immense mass of stone
on the diabolical looking machine. The
platform begins to move slowly and laborl
ously upward, grinding and creaking at every
inch from the enormous weght It lifts. In
half a minute the light of day totally dis
appears, and at that moment the horrors of
the position suddenly swoop down upon me.
To be dangling hundreds of feet above a
chasm with only a rope between a fall to
bottom with 10,000 pounds of stone is
enough to appal any Imagination. Although
the darkness is blackness inconceivable, and
the intense silence broken only by thegroan
ing of the great mas feeling Its way pain
fully upward, yet the frightful abyss appears
to become of itself both audible and visible.
The last 150 feet of balancing between
heaven and earth is like hanging between
life and death. Even the elevator man gives
up his heroic efforts to keep up the spirits of
At length light from the top begins to ap
pear, and In a minute or two a pallid party
of pleasure seekers step out on the platform
at the top, nearly four hundred feet in the
air. There is an enormous iron structure
running through the middle of the obelisk
and around this the stone Is blocked. S1i
feet are added every week in three tiers of
two foot blocks. The structure is then six
feet above the temporary platform, which is
thereupon raised, and the work of bringing
it six feet above the level is recommenced.
A net work of rope is securely fixed around
the top of the shaft, extending several feet
off, to catch any unfortunate man who might
drop ever-the workmen are compelled to be
on the very verge in order to complete the
outer layer of stone. A young lady not long
since, In a spirit of bravado, threw herself
into this life saving net. A weak spot ton the
rope would have sent her nearly 400 feet to
the earth. A contrivance like the rigging of
a ship is on top of the shbaft, and the wind
howls through it with ominous force. When
a tier or two of stone is laid the workmen
are protected in a measure fromthe violence
of the wind, but they acknowledge that
when they are working on a level it Is some.
If anythlug could repay one for the bor.
rors of the ascent it would be the view after
reaching the top. Even the moat hardened
sightaeer must be enthusiastic at the great
panorama spread out before him. The vast
Treasury building looks like a Lilliputian
house. The plan of Washington becomes
as well defined as achecker board. The full
grandeaur of the Capitol is then for the first
time realised. When it is remembered that
the Capitol is of almost the identical dimes.
slonu of the great pyramid and of St. Pe
ter's, being perhaps a few feet longer than
either, it may seem that it has nothing to
lose by looking at it from any point of eleva.
tion. Everything else grows minute from
the top of the monument except the white
splendor of the Capitol. It seems to be on
a mountain instead of a hill, anud amid the
diminishing of every other object the great
white dome stands grandly out, so high that
it looks as though poised in air.
A look at the elevator and a proposition
to descend is enough to kill any enthusiasm,
however. But it is by comparison with the
ascent simply delightful. There is no moun
tlan of stone to make one faney how it would
make one feel to go to the bottom of the
hideous bole with it. To the simultaneous
and earnest assurances made to the elevator
man that nobody in the party would ever do
so any more, he sardonically replied, "All of
'em say' that."
