PLEASUBE8 OP nuPE.
Of the pleasures of hope much baa
been said. Poet bave written of the
benign Influence ol tbat bright spirit
sent to cheer uisn in bl onward path ;
ol that balm for alibis griefs, troubles,
The power to hope is one of the great
est blessings we enjoy. It comes to all
classes of persons; to the poor In bl
humble cot, as well as to tbe rich In bis
Splendid abode, and Is alike a source ol
pleasure to both the Ignorant and en
lighted. Although disappointed hopes
sometimes cast their shadows about us.
yet, without hope much of tbe Joy of our
lives would be gone, for nn n universally
oucede that man is truly bcrelt Irom
whom all hope Is gone and who walks
through life's darkened .' path with only
despair lor a companion.
It is hope that gives us strength in
times oi danger. The shipwrecked
siilor, out on the broad ocean, with noth
ing visible but the sky abjve aud waters
ahout htm, may still hope that be will
besuved, aud tbji Is certaiijljt a source
ol strength to biin. - t
Wiiat Is the soldlcr'f Incentive when,
after long and continuous fighting, all
things seem working to disadvantage,
and be i almost discouraged? What is
it that enable him to push lot ward with
increased z al ? It is the hope tbat by
greater exertion on his part bis efluru
may be attended with success.
A man lost upon the dessert, almost at
the point ol death Irom hunger and
thirst, uuder the burning sun, r.erve
himself to one Jast effort upborne by Die
uupo ui me.
It Is hope that incites us to continued
exertion In some one direction. It Is this
that enables tbe scientist to pursue with
unremitting labor bis search after some
new and undiscovered truth. 1 bis bu
been the Incentive through all tbe days
nay years oi toil in this one direction
the hope that hi efforts may be atteuded
with success; that the truths lor which
ho bu labored so long aud arduously
may be established.
Similar bave been the results In the
case ot Inventors. Tbey have endund
great sufferings in the pursuance
ot their olijefct. Hope has been
the "Beacon light and guidu"
through all the weary years of toll. Alto'
in every day life hope enables men to put
forth energies and accomplish that which
would be Impossible, unless men were
tired with a purpose and hoped to reap a
luture reward. The merchant to defend
bis honor.to save bis commercial reputa
tion, has labored day and night, ha
denied blmsell recreation and rest as long
u hope remained, but when inevitable
ruin stared hlui in the Lee be could do
more. Hope lent Imn strtnj-th. When
hope was gone eBort was no longer posU
t hat a dreary monotonous man h this
life would be it not brightened and
cheered by hope. It is this that smooths
the ropd course of life, brings oy
where all thing else do fall. It is the
greatest blessing we enjoy, and without
which we would mid littlo pleasure in
Ilope holds the Christian's recompense
bebore his eyes. Hope cheers the death
bed, and hope takes away the sting of
ddath an I the victory of the grave.

Tramps are toot tourists who, being
out of employment, go about Irom town
to town begging acrumb here and there,
and Invariably bumlns work. Some.
people seem to hive a knack lor putting
tne tramp to work lor bis food, while
other Inexperienced person are so am old
as to show Ills Majesty the breakfast
taoie first. They have voracious nnne.
tltes, and when shown the wood pile
nsve pressing business on the other side
ol the back fence. There are some lion.
cat and really good tramps, but they are
so lew ana wiue apart that we on not
distinguish one from tbe other. The
poiicti "Cleaned out" the Hibernian en

There is .ciaii pi people who roam
from plaoo to place, ob'abilng their bread
by begging. Bomabl these person are
realljt deaerytng; JlJt Is Trry difficult
to deterulne wbleH tbey are. We should
try ,a4 help xliui much as possible,
lor we jui)4 re myHfjIiat In one sense
of tbe word they are our brothers. Cairo,

of tramps, and the policemen art trying
to get rid ol some of them. Let us ad
try to have at least an cnconraglng word

, THE SILVER BILL
Tbe latest sensation Is tbe passage ol
the silver bill over the president's veto.
The silver question has been agitated In
congress almost Irom the opening days
ol tbe present session, and huppy, 1
think, fur tbe business Interests of our
country, it has at lat been d finitely
settled by the passage ot the act over the
presiuem's veto. Judging from the
votes It received from the representatives
ot the western ai.d southern states, it is
evidently popular in thoso sections the
east alone opposing it, Tho bill, of
course, met with some opposition In con
gress, and this, together with the relusnl
of the president to sign it, proves that it
is not acceptable to all sections, but
whether or not, under the clicutustances.
the passage ot tbe bill la jest for ihe
g neral Interests ol the entire country,
a piob em, which wu are unable to solve
it Is a robleui, which time only can
solve. We cannot, however, but hate
our doubts and lear as to lu results.
One ol the strongest and most prevalent
incentives to virtuous conduct Is the de
sire ot the world's esteem. We act right
r filter that our acll ms may be applauded
by others than to imve the approbation
ol our own conscience. We n irain from
doing wrong, not so much from princi
ple, as Irom Ibe tear vl Incursiiig the
oein-ure ot the world. A duo regard
ought, Indeed, to l.e ptid to public opin
ion; but there Is a regard which we owe
lo ourselves, wbli-h isol lar greater im
pcrtauce. A regard, ahicb should keep
