Some of the History and the Legends of
tne Beautiful recos vauey.
The Birthplace and Church of Montezu
ma, the Messiah of the Aztecs.
Albuo.ui-rq.ue, April 10. Between Las
Vegas and Sitila Fe lies an impassible
range of mountains the GloriiU range of
the Itockic a lib running out from the
spine of the continent, which contains vast
ttcasurcs of gold and silver that arc now
tempting adventurous prospectors. There
are trails over the mountains that can be
followed b) surefooted mules, and those
who have rid.lenovcrthem are cnthtistaslic
about the glorious scenery and the charm
ing atmosphere, but the slopes of the passes
are too narrow and steep for wagons, and
defied the genius of the engineers wbo have
conquered next to impossible obstacles In
building raila)s through the mountain
gorges of the bouthvvtst. The old Santa
Fe trail doubled the range and the railroad
has followed it, mikinga V-shaped line six
ty mile long, with Laney Junction at the
angle, while the distance across the base of
the triangle is ouly about twenty miles.
But in this instance, as is almost always
tho case, the compensation Is more than
equivalent to the loss, for the road passes
through a regiou that is rich in history and
romance. The alley ou the east side of the
mountains is one of the most beautiful and
fertile in the world.
Just before reaching Lag Vegas there is a
station bearing the name of the ex-Senator
Irom Arkansas, who is now the defendant
in a celebrated case at Washington. Uc
owns, or has owned, one of the finest ranch
es iu the world, a few miles to the southeast
and a herd of T.'i.OCO cattle graze upon bis
range, which extends over iuto the Pan
handle of Texas, upon the tract whiib the
Farwell, A liner Taj lor and AmosBabcock,
received as thiir pay for erecting a capltol
for the State, and which the papers to day
report them to have sold lor $10,000,000.
During his last) car iu the United Slates
Senate Mr. Dorsey erected a magnificent
residence here a baronial castle and en
tertained his friends in princely style. It is
said, however, that he has been compelled
to dispose of the propcrey in order to meet
the enormous expense of the star-route tri
ais, and that it now stands in the name of
James W. Boslcr. the well-known contract
or and State Senator or Pennsylvania.
A part of Dorse j 's rnnch lies upon the
celebrated JItxn ell grant, which will fur
nish litigation enough to keep the courts of
New Mexico busy for a century.
A century or two ago an old reprobate,
who ruled over this Territory, gave two
million acres or so of land in Its northeast
corner to a couple of Spaniards by the names
ol Beaubieu and Miranda. What they did
for him to secure such a reward 1 do not
know, but they got a magnificent price for
thcirseivice. It Is the lincstgrazing ground
on the continent, and Its water privileges
arc almost pricelcs, but in granting them
this land the old Spanish v Iceroy gav e aw ay
the homes of a couple ot thousand people
vv illiout so much as sa) lug "by your leav e."
I do not know what the Spanish grantees
ever did with their princely domaio.but the
daughter of Miranda married an old hunter
by the name or Maxwell, and he was Kit
Carson's churn. Hunters, and scout. and
miners alna)s travel in couples; they did
so fifty vear ago as they do to-day, atrd Kit
Carson and Maxwell were "pards." To
gether they hunted and trapped for the
Hudson Bay Company, and sold their skins
at St. Vrala'a fort, near where Denver now
stauds; together they fought the Indiana
and rescued beleaguered travelers over the
plains; together they piloted Fremont
across the continent, and the Pathfinder's
"Narrative." is a tribute to their skill as
guides aud scouts,
Kit Carson married a Mexican woman and
settled do wn at the old Pueblo of Taos when
he became old and weary, and told the story
of his life to the writers of legendy and
plalnscraft. Fifteen years ago he died poor
but famous at Fort Lyon, Colorado! on the
Los Animas river. Maxwell survives! him
a Tew years, rich but hated, on the princely
domain which he inherited from his father-in-law.
The property the grant which
bears bla name passed Into the hands of
Holland capitalists, wbo now are In posses
sion ol two million acres of land aad five
thousand law suits. Frank Sherwin, who
Is well known is Chicago, Is their agent,
and but I won't go Into the details of bis
transactions. Justly or unjustly, he has
had a hard row to hoe, bnt he lives in a cas
tle near the town of Springer, the manager
of the finest cattle ranch la the world. The
house is a magnificent structure, lunrioua
ly furnished, aad the equipraeat of the
ranch are In corresponding style, Bait for
with the funds of the AsaUrtaas Dutch
men whom be represents. The Maxwell
ranch, as it Is knows, has upon It not ely

KANSAS, THURSDAY, MAY 3, 1883k
the story remains one of the moat charming
that was errer found in the folk-lore of our
U.f.i V.' "3 ill
These people are remarkaele for many
things, but for nothing more than their sin
cere and abiding faith in the sacred truth
of the' stories of their redeemer's birth. Ac-
cording to their traditions Montezuaia-wsteries, and once occupied by the Coefeder-
born at Pecos, and the circumstances of his
birth and yontbhood arc strangely similar
to those that we read in the New Teitaraeut
the Pueblo near the cluster of shanties that
surround a railroad tank, and is known by
the Iaraelltish name of Levy, he built a
church, at which, according to their tradi
tional the Aztec religion was born. They
are not true, as I have said, but they are,
nevertheless, charmingly Interesting. The
Aztecs worshipped fire, and Montezuma's
principal business, wheu he grew to man
hood, was to keep the flames opoji the'jiid
eous old altar alive. ""
One day a great white eagle came and
bore Montezuma away on his back. Every
Where the eagle alighted on the journey
south wild a pueblo arose, and the end of
tight was at the base of Popocatapetl,
where the City of Mexico was rounded bv
Montezuma, and a long line or Lings or bis
me reigned for centuries at the great seat
of the Aztee faith aud power.'-Then' Cor-'
tea came with bis galllons, captured theclt)
of the Montezuma., murdered the king,
stole hia, gold, and ssnt the treasure across,
the water to the balls of the Alhambra.
BeforeMontezuma left Pecos, so they say,
he told them he would come again as he
went, and through the long centuries when
they suffered the most cruel peonage that
ever enslaved a people from their Spanish
conqueror, the devout and confiding Aztec
would go up to his house-top at sunrise,
and, shading his eves with bis dusky hand,
would scan the far horizon of the South in
the hope that his messiah would appearand
be does it to this day, not only at Pecos but
at all the pueblos which remain as relics of
the Aztec days.
When Montezuma sailed away he told bis
people that they must keep the fire on the
altar burning until he reappeared, and at
the old church, whose walls he laid of adobe
sir feet thick, this injunction was observed
until the travel became so frequent along
tho Santa Fc trail that the priests reared the
impious would extinguish it, and prevent
the coming or their redeemer, so tbey took
it one day with great ceremony over the
mountains to the pueblo or Taos, where,
according to traditiou, Montezuma's eagle,
first alighted in his flight from Pecos. There
it is supposed to burn to-day in a secluded
tttufa, or temple, piously guarded from the
sight or touch or the unbelievers, and safe
from tho sacrilegious hand of the cowboy,
whom the Pueblos fear as much as the rev
erence thtir mythical redeemer.
At Pecos there used to be a pinion tree
which was planted by Montezuma, and the
old priests riay that sitting tinder Us shade
be used to make his prophesies, aud talk in
parable, as the rounder of the Christian re
ligion did. Here be foretold, several ecu
turies in advance ol Us occurrence, the
Spanish invasion. He warned his people
that the conquerors would come Irom the
south, and make them slaves for i'0 years,
and that then a white race of might) war
riors gifted in the arts of war a'nd peaie,
riding upon snon-vvhitc chargers, vvoull
arrive from tbe east and rescue them; that
the earth then should be fertilized by rain,
that the mountaius would yield up their
treasures to the pale faces, and that the peo
ple would grow rich aud fat with herds of
cattle and sheep.
This prediction, made before or after the
fact, as the case may be. was strangely ful
ol the days of the Child CbriiL When het The work wai assigned to General Sibley of
grew to maahoosi he became their prophet, iib ' Cn(eMrSfc annf, Aholfis .famUIar
priest, and 'king. 2nd a few miles south offwiththe conhtrV, an,uhemarcnod,it 'the

Phil Kearney came down tbe valley, mount
ed upon a magnificent white stallion, at the
head or 3,000 pale-faced soldiers, aud tipped
over the deputy throne that the Viccrov
Arroijo had set up at Santa Fe.
Tbe pious Pueblos believe that Keamej
was their deliverer from the Spanish yoke,
and every morning when they go to the
bouse tops to look for the coming or Mon
tezuma, tbey take from tbe bucksbin pouch
es tbey wear upon their breast, a pinch of
sacred -powder made from tbe flour of
parched corn, and puif it into tbe air, breath,
ing a praxer for the repose or Kearney's
soul, and begging a blessing from Montezu
ma, and the sun which he taught them to
worship, upon tbe work or the day.
It Is in this Oriental act that tbe strange
auomaly in their mixed religion appears, as
It does in so many other ways. Tbe o'd
n?trilli lnsrrtt.iti.rti tslis Initiln.l llifrf liinl '
were pious cut-throats, and brought their
priest with tbem when they came. At the
head of Coronado'i army a tress was borne
and tbe church militant was the church tri
umphant. Everywhere a garrison wai left
remained Franciscan monks, who, with tho
aid ol the soldiery, compelled the Aztecs to
adopt tbe religion of Rome. Religion w&s
shot into them, and tbe prajers or tbe fri
ars arose In tbe smoke of battle The Inva
sion was a grand, bloody, missionary tour,
and the peaceful heathens were compelled
to bow before tbe cross while tbe Spanish J
steel cut their barn-strings,
The monk did their work thorough!,
and after a few generations every pueblo
contained a church, and every time the
shadow of tbe cross fell upon their ejes the
people bowed to a symbol tbat represented
at once tbe sacrifice and the, triumph of tbe
Montazumn of Nazareth.
There were never more sincere or devout
adherents to tbe church ot Home than are
these people lo day, but in their piety .ip-
pears that strange and striking contrast, to '
which I have alluded. Tbe priests were I
able to persuade them to adopt a new reli- j
glon, but they were never able to persuade j
them to abandon the old. Tbey go to the
hous2 tops at sunrise to watch for the com-
ing of one Messiah, and then entering their
bouses drop upon their knees before the
cross upon which another Messiah died.
Tbe Catholic faith was firmly and eternal!)
engrafted upon tbe pre-hlstoric religion of
the Aztecs, but the old faith did not expire
in the process. The sacred fires from the
estufa send to tbe skies to-day as tbey did
five centuries ago the Incense of Ibeplniotyi.
but It is now upon tbe same altar that hears
the wafers and tbe wire tb it typify the body
and the blood of Christ.
Tbe two religions, essentially so far apart
In theory, are perfectly blended, and when
tbe Spaniards were driven from tbir Terri
tory every trace or them was destroyed but
their language and their religious teachings.
Tbe cross Is rev erenced ev en as much as the
memories of Montezuma, and in both trusts
the Ignorant, unlettered people are sincere.

no one knows wbeu. as there are no records
and tradition is a lie. It can be seen at the

spot where stood Montezuma's church. It

Mormon aid, and Duke Q win prvnlsed that
tiUfornli.V'uis4isjJ,tWti)at or the
folds of the flag if guaranteed co-operation
fi om the South. It waa a lair prospect and
a tempting opportunity. There were few
soldiers in New Mexico or the othetTerri
ate forces, It would require an enormous
army to recover tbepossession or the Rocky
Mountain region and tbe great Paclficslepe
bead or an invading army or 10,000 Texans.
Santa Fc, Albuquerque, and other Mexi
can towns yielded without a struggle, and
welcomed tbe rangers with open arms. At
Ltlie formerplsoE was FortMarcy, an arsenal
which furnished arms and ammunition 'to
the Invaders, permitting tbe equipment of
3,000 Mexican soldiers and Indians, wbo
filled the gaps made by tbe garrisons that
were left at sevjemi posnU atojUbe road. '
""The Union men "ol tlie Abutter were
alarmed, and dispatched couriers tcf the
East with the news of Sibley's advance and
petitions for military aid. But tbe 'situa
tion was as critical in Virginia as it was in
the West, and the cntlro attention of the
administration was directed to tbe weak
ened and disheartened armies of the Poto
mac. Despairing or government aid, the
patriot of Colorado and New Mexico deter
mined to organize resistance on their ac
count. A regiment was organized at Den
ver, composed ot hardy frontiersmen, of
which Chlvington was coloucl.init KltCar
son was the major and actual commander,
The men would follow Kit Carson wherever
he w ould lead, and Kit uevcr felt nor could
he imagine the tensatiotl of fear, lie was
a quIcL uuasnumlng, undemonstrative man
ths very opposite of the traditional fron
tiersman ; he never made about, and never
left a duty unfulfilled. His word was high
er law than the edicts or the courts, and
what Kit Caison said was gospel, from the
Wahsatch Mountains to tbe raoutb of the
While Siblej and hia Iroopi were drink
iu3' the native wines of Bernalllla and de
bauching Mexican women. Kit Carson's
patriots, with no equipments hut theirown
rifles and blankets, no commissions but their
own patriotism, and no piy but tbe con
sciousness of loyalty, came down the foot
hills of the Itocky Mountains and spread
their blankets (n Glorietta Pass. The odds
were teu to one, but when tbe clash came,
in the Apithe Canon, the dead Texans were
piled up in heaps for three miles, and the
live ones fled across tbe country into their
own State. Santa Fe and the rest ot the
Territory was recaptured, and the great
U est was saved to the Union.
It was more than three months before the
news of this battle reached the ears or tbe
authorities at Vasblngton,and It came like
a gleam of sunshine iu a depressing storm
or continued adversities. Tbe modest Kit
Carson was seut for and made a brigadier
ceucral, but the Senate refused to confirm
him under the Influence, It Is said, ot tbe
carpet knights wbo were banging around
Washington, wearing the unllorms ot Cu
pid instead of those of Mars. In no other
way was this inc-tirutble service acknowl
edged; !hc.Colondo regiment never re
ceived an) pav from the gouernaient, and
to the shame'of Congress be it said that a
proposition lor their compensation was lelt
in a plgcon-bole where some antiquarian
will find It undisturbed a huudred jeam to
LET HIM SLEEP.
Don't call your boy in the morning with
a sudden shake and a loud voice, dragging
him out of some fairy land or dreams to
strain sleenv eves open, with the first Im-
the necessity or a struggle to keep him
from falling asleep again. If need bo that
he shall get up early, send b'tn to tied early.
He cannot sleep forever, an) more than be
can hurt hlmsell sleeping just as long as
bis r) cs will remain elosed. Let him sleep
till hi sleep Is finished : till be can't help
waking up. The time will come soon
enough when all night Ioug he'll lie awake;
or when troubled dreams will wake him at
tbe cock crowing, though he could not
shut his c)cs until after midnight. Let him
wake up slowly, too, and uever get up till
he's wide awake. Though be be but two
years old be will be a happier child all day
for it; aud a happier man his life long, if
through tbe morning of that life be sleeps
enough and wakens casih. Watch him
some morning while be is waking. Take
lime enough, for he will be a good hair
hour about it; and it will be a safe venture
to say tint never again will you wake a
child in tbe morning unless tbe house is
burning or some like contingency. Sit by
the bedside. Do not take your eyes of!, or
jou will miss something. Two little arms
are thrown up above tbe head ; one little
foot outside the blanket is crossed upon
the other Underneath. He U flat upon his
back, his bead thrown over and nose tuck
ed under his night-gown sleeve, a picture
or perfect case, with rosy pouting lips, and
chubby Hovers ball clutched. Watch for
tbe first sign or Morpheus loosening his
grasp, when tbe little fingers slowly
straighten, till rijid and far apart each
trembles to its very tips ; aud tbe Up quiv
ers, and naked toes arc stretched just as
far as the foot can carry them, while he
holds his breath for an instant, and (hen
with' a long comlortable sigh turns Upside
down and Is fast asleep again, with tbe
soles of bis little feet turned upward, and
two little palms far spart upou the bed.
Over and over a,r-iln be will go through
the motions, each time- a little more of a
stretch than before, until bis fato is as
puckered and wrinkled as it will be In three
score years and ten Indelibly, and becomes
fairly purple with tbe straining, And by
ami by his eyes will open just a bit, ami
Tall on von. Ab I the sleepy smile that on
ly uncovers tbe tips or the teeth, and the
whispered "Papa," will well repay your

HAIR AFTER DEATH.
Tbe extraordinary fact noted in tbe sub
joined narrative is now for tbe drst time
published : '
In tbe year 16t)3 the bodies iu the vaults
of the church which then stood on tbe north
side of Carmine street, near tbe junction or
Variek aud Clarkson streets, were removed.
In some or tbe vaults tbe coffins had been
ranged In rows, at many as ten being plac
ed on top or tbe other. Up to the time
tbat tbe removal or the bodies was begun
there had not been a burial if the placing
of a body In the vaults can be so termed
underneath tbe church for seventeen years.
It was not surprising, therefore, that when
tbe men went to work most or the coffins
were lound decayed, and that where there
bad originally been several coffins nothing
was found but a mass of rotton wood.
remnants or bones, and now and then frag
ments or bodies that held together but had
only the bare rrsemblence to skeletons or
tbe human body.
There were, however, a few coffins
which went found to be in a fair state of
preservation, but even tbe majority or
these Tell to pieces at the slightest touch.
The work bail lasted nearly a week when
one day a vault was reached in which every
coffin but one bad crumbled. Their con
tents lay In scattered heaps on the top of
the casket which bad been tbe lint to be
placed In tbe vaults. Strange to say, al
though the workmen made rough use ot
their shovels, this coffin remained Intact,
and when the last shovelful of "rubbish'
as tbe men called it bad been scraped off
the lid there was no indication that the
casket was not as strong as the da when it
was tenderly laid, as tbe friends or the dead
one fondly hoped, never to be disturbed-
from Its resting place.
One of the laborers with a broom swept
off the mold and dust or years that covered
portions or tbe lid, and a faint glinting near
tbe center of it caught tbelr watchful eyes.
Holding a lantern over the coffin, one or
the men found this to proceed Irom the
plate a heavy silver one. Bending down
and scraping it with a trowel, tbe work
men Jescrled tbe name and age ot tbe per
son who bad been burled in tbe casket. It
showed that the body was tbat of a boy of
twelve years which bad lain there for up
wards of sixteen years. In attempting to
lift the coffin the lid came off, the worn and
rusted screws railing to the ground.
The sight tbat met the eyes ol the lookers-on
they will probably never forget.
One of them, a Catholic, knelt down on
tbe stone floor and devoutly made tbe sign
or the cross. Tbe Interior or the coffin
tbe satin lining and tbe delicate fringe that
bordered it was yellow and moldy, but the
body of the boy a handsome boy be must
bare been in Its white shroud, with a
broad white silk ribbon about the waist,
looked as if it bad but recently been laid
In tbe coffin. The face was marble white,
the lips were hair parted, as ir In a smile,
and beneath tbe partly closed eyelids could
be seen by tbe lantern' rays tbe eye them
selves. The little hand were folded across
the breast, and most wonderful or all, per
haps was tbe hair. It was neatly parted at
the side, and appeared as it it had just
been combed, for tbe danipnessot the vault
was upon it, and Ibis dampuess seemed
like the trace or a welted brush. Tbe hair
fell in long tressea on either side and had
curled and stretched down aad along aud
over tbe body to the waist, covering it here
sad there like a thin veil
All this was aeeu at a glance. 1 be won
derful appearance or tbe body remained
unchanged for a much less time than it takes
to tell it, for as the men stood ss ir trans
fixed to the spot, gazing upon the child, an
almost Imperceptible motion was discerned
shout the face. The e)es commenced slow
ly to sink, the shroud to crumble, and In
an Instant almost, the air bad done its work
and tbe frail shell tbat had once doubtless
been the pet or a household faded Into
nothingness. When those present (and tbe
writer of this sketch was ono of tbem) bad
regained their composure they stood be
fore aa almost empty totBo ; for, besides a
skeleton tbat fell to fragments when touch
ed, there lay at tbe boltosB of Ibe casket

from the Woman's Journal .
CLARA BARTON IN THE PATENT OF
FICE. Miss Barton's early lire. like tbat oi so
many New England girl, was spent In
teaching school. To ber belongs the credit
of having assisted In organizing the public
school system of New Jersey. When she
went there the State bad a number of good
private schools, but only two "free schools"
which were making a rather doubltu! trial
of tbe new State taw Iu regard to public
schools, which up to this time bad been re
garded as, and styled "pauper schools."
Mis Barton organized a public school, in
Bordentown. She began with six scholars
in a dilapidated old house with capacity for
20, aud left It at tbe year's end with 000 In a
fine brick building, newly erected for berat
a cost of 4,000 the present public school
building at Bordentown. Severe exertion
told on her health, aud she lost ber voice,
She went to Washington torecuperate.
At tbat time Judge Mason, of Iowa, was
commissioner or patents. He was in a good
deal or distress because or the difficulty ot
finding a clerk who could keep a secret.
After a man had applied for a patent, and
before It could be granted, the confidential
clerks in the patent office would reveal his
Invention to some other person, wbo would
thereupon come forward and claim to have
inuented'thc thing before him. People
were willing to pay almost any pricft for
such information. The secrets or tbe office
bad been several times betrayed, and Judge
Mason was at his wits' end. In this dilemma
it was suggested to hint tbat Mias Barton
would be competent to do hi work, and
could be tnuteJ to not fell his secrets. He
sent for her and engaged bar.
At this time there were no regularly ap
pointed female clerks in any of the depart
ments at Washington. There were three
young ladies in this office wbo were tempo
rarily occupying tbe desks or tbelr tick or
deceased fathers. Tbey came with veils
over their faces, scudded away borne as fast
as they could when their 'work was done,
and drew their pay in their fathers' names.
It was distinctly understood tbat tbey were
merely substitutes, and tbe male clerks did
not object to tbem. But when Miss Barton
was eugaged as a regular clerk, and her
own name went onto tbe pay-roll, there was
great commotion among the government
employes. For, If one woman could, wby
not more ? Tbe craft was in danger. Tbey
determined tbat they must get rid of Miss
Barton ; and tbey look a noble and manly
way to do It. First they tried to stare her
out. She bad to come In lo her work
through a long hall and corridor. They
used to form two long rows along the walls
on each side, so that she had to pas between
tbem. They stared at her, and uttered oc
casional little soft whistle as she went by.
"I have never encountered anything like
this before," said Mis Barton, "and my
Yankee blood did not like it. I passed
through with my eyes on the floor I saw
nothing or them above tbelr knees but
every morning there were all those rows of
legs. Still there was a principle involved,
knd I determined not to yield It."
Then tbey tried slander. Tbey found a
spokesman in the personal acquaintance ol
Judge Mason, and preferred a charge agaluat
her moral character. The Judge asked for
tbe proof, ami give until 5 o'clock Saturday
night to collect the cv Idencc. "But under
stand," be said, "things lll not remain
just aa they are Iu tills office. If you prov c
tbischsrge. Miss Barton goes; lf)ou rail
to prove it, you go." Tbe chosen vanguard
presented himself at tbe appointed hour to
beg an extension of time ; the mail bad
failed to bring him promptly what he had
relied upon. Tbe commissioner replied
tbat tbe time bad not railed to come around,
neither would his word fall; ami the dis
missal was Immediately made.
Miss Barton remained In tbe otllce three
years, doing her work so well tbat her books
Lare still shown a models. At tbe end or
that time she fell under suspicion' of politi
cal heresy. Buchanan was In power. It
wss known tbat she came from Massachu
setts. So did Sumner and Wilson. It wa
a dangerous State, and she was suspected
ol being "a black republican." She plead
ed guilty and gave up her position. Judge
Mason had previously resigned ami return
ed to ihe West.
After Lincoln's election, wLlle tbe war
was brewing, and after publie opinion bad
turned, the patent office began to quake In
its shoes, and desiring to have a friend at
court, Lincoln earnestly Invited Mls Barton
to come back. By ber father's advice she
returned. She wse welcomed with open
arms, and nothing was considered too good
for her. They would not allow ber to do
aay thing so menial as to st at an otBcs
desk, but sent ber the choicest pert of ta
work to ber own roots, sad sappfled her
with a messenger ta carry it back aad forth.
SothlagsweatOBtllitbe war broke out.
Tbe government was poor aad lesklaf st
every seam. Many of Uie clerks to the pat
eat office were disloyal. 'Miss Bartow went
to tbe commissioner, D. 1. Holloway, and
told him If be would dlsatias two af these
disloyal clerks, she would herself doth
work of their two desks, 6a conditloa that
their salaries (laoeaeh), should reavria

thankfulness, should plant for others yet to

believed tbat every good thought, every

Pluck from tbe tree of any life these flow
era sad there remains but the barren thorns
or bigotry and creed. All wish for happi

there grows this sscred flower or eternsl
hope. Immortality Is a word that hope
through all the age has beea whispering
to love. Tbe miracle ol thought we can
not understand. Tbe mystery or death
and hope we cannot comprehend. This
chaos called the world has never been ex
plained. Tbe goldea bridge or lire from
gloom emerges and on shadow rests. Be
yond this we do uot know. Fate is speech
less, destiny I dumb, and the secret ol tbe
future ba never yet been told. We love,

more we fear. Upon the tendcrest heart
the deepest shadows rail. All paths,

Character alone survives. Goodness alons
