I dreamed of a mound in God's acre,
Where the dying sunbeam lay;
(Where they buried my heart with my darl
ing, When they layed him, to rest, away.)
By his grave I was kneeling, sobbing
When a low voice spoke my name,
And it called again, as I listened,
Wondering whence it came.
Then a hand clasped mine,
And I saw a face, wonderous, divinely fair
And. knew God had sent his angel
Kneeling beside me there.
The words of comfort, and healing
"At last reached my aching heart
And I thought "Of the Kings great diadem,
My boy is forming a part. "
That in all the world
There was not a gem save mine could fill
But he, thank God, was ready
Though Christ's dear love aud grace,
Close to theeruery-wheel; his life
Had been held by a master-hand
Till God said a soul so true, so fair,
Must at my right handstand.
How the heart-ache changed to gladness.
How proud I was, that my boy,
Striving to noble manhood
Had given his Savior joy.
How glad to think that his faith
In the Master to save from sin.
Would, though his life was endea,
Be a power, souls to win.

from the Brooklyn Eagle, headed "Chest

by a partj' of eminent divines to Fire
Island, recalls the days of 'GO aud '01.
"Dr." Pentecost, or "Pente" as we all
called him, was a printer twenty-five yea re
ago, and worked in the office of the Kan
sas National Democrat, a paper published
by W. DriartT"?, whom von, George Mar
tin and many others well remember. At
the time Geo. M. Rcebc was holding down
the gubernatorial chair, young Sam Medary
had the contract for piinting the territorial
laws, journals, etc., and the work was be
ing done in the Democrat ollice, which was
then in the basement of the building oppo
site the old Roweua hotel, in Lccomplon.
Among others who worked in the ollice at
that time was George Fred Pentecost, now
an eminent minister in Brooklyn Hew York.
When I remember the fearful amount of
"cussing"' "Pente" used to do on the
slightest provocation, how strange it
seemed to me when I learned soon after the
war that he was preaching. But I recol
lect him as a fine specimen of physical
manhood, verj' bright and intelligent, and
full of life and fun, and a good printer as I
have no doubt he is a good preacher none
of your dismal, long-faced .fellows, but a
bright, cheerful laborer in the Master's
vineyard, whom it does one good to talk to.

To the Editor of tiic Eagle.
All cities that make great commercial
centeis, are built upon direct lines of travel
either bjr i ail way or water communication.
The Mississippi river, the lakes, the gulf,
as well as the seaboards, attest the fact that
direct communication with the world is the
only way to build up great trade centers.
Wichita must be made a great trade center,
and she can put herself t the forefront by
securing an Atlantic and Pacific railway
outlet. A railroad from Norfolk on the
Atlantic to Santa Diego on the Pacific,
making Wichita its central or terminal
points, would, in many lespects, be the
greatest road on the American continent.
When we look at the magnitude of such
an enterprise, we are almost ready to say
it is too great to be undertaken
at present. But when we
consider the transcendent importance of
such a railroad to Wichita. We arc per
suaded it is wisdom to take hold of such an
enterprise and never let it go until it is
built. A young friend of ours who is con
versant with the proposed line of railway,
who has made it a study for years, has pre
pared a charter and communicated with
many leading railroad men, who are con
vinced of the immense shipping and travel
such a road would readily command, and
who are ready and willing to take hold of
the enterprise and push it to completion.
Such a road would be the most direct
route for all time to the capital of our coun
try, as it would traverse the central portion
of the United States. Let anyone examine
the map of the United States and sec New
York, Cairo, Wichita and Sandiego, and
notice the rivers as well as all the material
interest of the central half of the United
States, and the intelligent will trace the
lines of the proposed road, which can and
will be fed bv the rivers aud the states de
siring to get the most speedy communica
tion with the markets of the world.

In five years there have been many
changes in the Garfield family. There
have been no deaths, but the children of
whom the father was so fond have grown
up. The two older boys have just begun
a course in the Columbia law school, and
Harry, the elder, has been teaching in
some eastern school. Both are graduates
of Williams college. James It. Garfield
has been studying law with Judge Boyn
ton in Cleveland, and is looked upon by
friends of his father as the son most like
him in every way. He has his father's
size, complexion and manner. Both sons
are now men, and have, it is said, great am
bition. Miss Mollie, the only daughter,
is now a young woman taller than her
mother, and has about finished her studies.
The two j'oungcr sons, Abram and Irwin
the latter named for General Irwin Mc
Dowell have entered a school on the Hud
son, Mrs. Garfield's family circle is there
fore not large, with her four boys all away.
The old house at Mentor, now the home
of the family, has had added to it a palatial
"Queen Anne" structure, which cost $30.
000, It is the" most imposing home in the
country, although the new part is behind
and wholly subservient to the old house in
which the president lived. A S30, 000 addition
to a $o,000 house is a curiosity in modern
architecture, but sentiment for the past and
its illustrious dead inspired it. There are
probably sixty rooms in both the old and
the new houses. They are all furnished in
modern style, and with considerable ele
gance, and there is an air of aristocracy
about the interior which Garfield in life
did not know in his own home. Although
the house is far in the country, it has all
the conveniences of a city home, in lumb-
ing, gas-fitting and steam-heating, A nat
ural gas well has been bored on the farm,
and the j'ard is kept lighted day and night.
With Mrs. Garfield live her father, Mr.
Rudolph, a brother and his family, and
also the two Misses Mason, of Cleveland,
whose mother and sister are now in Eu
rope. There are sixteen in the family, and
five servants. A half dozen men
are employed on the farm, which
consists of 200 acres. It is paying, al

in my mind that the state of Kansas is but

states. Again to become fully known
would cause Mich a rush to the state as was
never known in any country in the last
quarter of a century. The health giving

and its delightful fall and spring. Few
men are aware that one man can"do more
