01 all the places of amusement in our
city, the skating rink Is certainly the
most amusing. Old men and young
men, old women and young women,
boys and girls, alike congregate there to
try their skill on the rollers. It is in
deed a most excellent exercise for the
rheumatic. Tho sport "limbers one up"
to a wonderful degree. A fellow starts
off and suddenly sees an imaginary
nlckle, and ''goes for It" accordinly
most ot them see It over their shoulders
at any rate they generally lail 111 that
direction, and "O what a full Is there my
countrymen!" W. W. says II he had
picked up a nlckle every timo he "duck
ed" lor one, be would new have had
enough ol the '.'necessary" to keep him
in icecream, soda water and circus-cash
lor the approaching season indeed 1
had some experience in that line myself.
The floor seemed to be endowed with an
astonishing amount ol "attractive force"
wherever 1 roamed. In fact, it si-emed
to me as a huge magnet, and so it seems
ed to every one else.
Nothing Is more laughable than to see
a gorgeous piucadilly, enclosing a pro
mising young gent, glide gracefully up
to a fair damsel lor a "waltz around the
room," and fall headlong with tear
ful vulocity, much to tbe niortillcation
ot the piccadlally and the promising
young gent aloresald.
llacing is one of the principal leatures
of the evening, and when two rivals
start oil, there is no telling where they,
will stop, thereby greatly endangering
the gable end ot tho building and
whenever W. S. falls the p.-ople of tho
neighboring houses rush otil, and ex
claim with one accord, Earthquake.-!
We would advise all to pay the
rink a visit and enjoy its sport, but be
fore entering do not tall to remember
! that our city has several reliable insur
I anco agencies. W. L. W.
An Ideal is a conception proposed by
tbe mind for imitation or realization.
Ills a standard, h model of perloetion
which we erect and vainly strive to at
tain. Wc take all the lovliuess, the beauty
and virtue of Hie and concentrate them
In one great lde.a. We clothe this with
a magnificence, enshrine it with a glory
unprecented by anything which exists.
This constitutes our ideal. It looms up
beloro us In all of Its splendor. We gaze
upon it with wistful, longing eyes, and
strain every nerve and muscle in our at
tempt to reach It. Graduully wo ap
proach, but it moves away, soars
higher still and is as far or further irom
us than before.
We are like a child chasing a butterfly,
which flits gaily from (lower to shrub,
now stopping for a moment to sip the
nectar from a rose, giving the pursuer
the opportunity to lay his fingers on its
delicate wings, and as he is about to
grasp it firmly it darts away, leaving the
child gazing after it with wonder. Ke
sees not the beauty ot the flower which
tor the moment had attracted the butter
fly. His desire W tor the beautiful
creature with gay wings, and when he
sees it again alight upuu a rose be dashes
away in fresh pursuit. But he meets at
every turn the same disappointment, and
the longer he follows it the more dcs.
pairing he becomes of ever securing it.
So with the Ideals we make lor our
selves In Ule. They are pleasant pics
turesever Delore our eyes alluring us on
ward. We all have our ideals, but they
dlflcr vastly. Culture and education has
much to do with this, for the more a per
son studies, the more he understands of
the world, the deeper lie has inquired
Into the workings cf nature, and the
more he bas unravelled its mysteries,
the lurther away becomes his ideal and
he is obliged to work harder, to light
more fiercely each battle, In order to ap
proach It. liutas he advances, it recedes.
If we had not the power ot creating
for ourselves an ideal, life would be aims
less; we would go daily through the old
routine ot duties, accept pleasures and
cares wiih tho tame unrulllcd spirit. We
would not advance, for we would have
no Incentive; we might, perhaps, not res
trograde but continue on iu the same un
broken calmness, the very evenness of
which, would to some, be stilling.
II we had nothing to strive lor we
would overcome! no difficulties, sweep
away no obstacles from our path which
leads us onward.
The statesman has his ideal ol a govern
ment, and he raises his voice iu tones
of eloquence und power, denouncing the
lallaclcs ami corruptions which exist
111 works with unfaltering dilligence
over barriers insurmountable iu his de
sire to realize his Ideal ; and though ho
lalls short ot it iu the end, yet he reaches
a standard, which would never have bet
come his had lie not his ideal continually
pressing hi in forward. Raphael's winged
cherubluis were his ideal angels.
Milan put jupon the canvass his Ideal
of womanhood, perfect in Its coloring,
glorious In Its loveliness ; the face looks
down upon Its admirers Irom eyes which
could be conceived ot only in the brain
of one who possessed such a wonderlul
Ideal. Old, blind, poverty stricken
Milton In his garret, without even a nty
of light to pierce through the darkened
chamber of his brain, conceived his
Ideal, his Immortal epic, though be hud
been deprived of the powci to gaze upon
the external beauties which surrounded
him ; yet his soul was lighted by his
glorious ideal which his closed lids eould
not shut out. There has been but one
lite that has ever attained to Its Ideal and
that llfo la our Ideal, our model ot pers
lection. A Mo that passed through
trial and privation; was taunted, mocked,
acourired. betrayed and crocilled. but at
last triumphed and ascended, i Bo It so
with us. Lot not tu world, iUJeen
and bltlwr. larqnimi deter ui on our
march. Let us strive to attain our ideal,
and though we do not quite reach It
here, In the herealter will be our re
ward. K. A.
studying history of creation,
we buome conscious ot a progression In
the rankftna dignity of that which we
contempt.,, 'i'ng Was planned and ex
ecuted by a n,8tcr mind. After all things
were ready Gor, seated man In his own
Image, and endowti him with that sits
preme Intelligence ..,ch makes him
master and lord ol this mwer world.
The mind subserves many noble and
ustfulcnds. It Is or tbe utmost Impor
tance to man, given to him by tho Crea
tor as an Instrument with which to im
prove his temporal condition. The mind
of the child is feeble. It 8tumbr8 t the
slightest dilliculty, and Is bewildei.d by
the least mystery; but gradually it de
yelopes, und acquires new energy und
power, rising in might and majesty, un
til it is uble to fathom the mysteries ol
All human institutions moulder away.
The works ot art, however solid, grand
or beautiful, either by ihi ravages ot
time, or tbe bliud fury ol mortals, perish;
but the uilnd which conceives these
things, lives on. Its empires never fall
to decay. Jts scepter never des
parts. How tho thought thrills us,
when we remember that these
minds will outlast all the mighty monu
oieiits of lime, and live on after the last

Standing upon t-oiue lolly summit,
we view the material wofltl In all Its
beauty and sublimity. '1 lie boundless
oceans, the vast mountain chain, the un
broken forest, the precipece and the
cataract, all lie within tho range of our
vision, and we bow an bumble worshiper
amid these countless manllestations of
the creative power. But as we pay our
homage to the beauties and wonders ol
the maieriul world, Me pause to consider
the moral world ol'tnau.
Can the scenery, however luir, sublime
or wonder! ul, ol this physical creation
compare with the mind that is eudowed
with the thought of eternity and an un
told amount of Intellectual riches? Does
not this possess more interest for us thun
mountain, forest, hill or dale.
The great man is admired because he
unites the general tendency and aspiras
Hons ot his time with the power to give
them adequate expression in his own
words and deeds. Great minds are sum-,
maries ot their times; they teach in
a forcible manner the lessons which have
been wrought In the experience ot a peo
ple for ages. Socrates was the apostle
of thought, ilis lnlluenue in leading
men to use direct and ellecllve modes ot
reasoning, was Incilculable, and has per
haps had more tfl'ect on the world than
the victorious career of Alexander, or
tbe brilliant achievements ol thellomans.
We catch glimpses of the beautiful mind
of the poet bsaraing lorth in his writings,
just as we sometimes see the sun, far
down below the blue waters, and we re
peat the ''Author's mind replete with
hallowed riches, stands a cathedral, full
of precious things.'' M. L.
