MISS H. R. HUDSON.
The is lying fast asleep, '
. In hor Rundny cop and gown;,
Cells are tolling loud ami deep
In tho town. '
Hrtrmy field and sunny wood
Are go qniot mid 80 fair,
That the bells seem almost rnde, '
! " Echoing there.
Overhead is naught but blue;
And so still Hint Jem and I
Wonder if it in Sunday, too, .
Iu the sky.
Circled near us, hushed and bowed,
Hearing prnyor, the neighlmrsstnml,
Jem and I creep through the crowd,
Hand iu hand;
And we hear the pastor say,
With raised eyes and earnest face,
"Death, like sunshine, floods our ways
With God's grace."
Grandma does not hear or stir,
Only lies thoro with a smile;
Nothing seems to trouble her
. For the while.
He! gray lmir is smoothed away
Underneath her cap's starched band,
And ifho holds a white boquet
' In her hand.
After song and prayer are done,
She is shut from warmth aud light,
Carried forth through shade aud Run,
' Ont of sight.
Jem and I would follow her,
i,!But the pastor, teuderly
Lifts us, while the bells yet Btir,
To his knee;
Comforts ns with words of oheer:
"Little ones, yon must not cry;,
You can go to her from here,
If you try.
And Jem whispers very low,
As tho pastor turns away,
"Did he say that wo might go
J" Aiiy toyf i
Well you see the road tlioy took
""Heaven is pretty near I know;
Get your hat from off the hook,
And well go."
Maine Worse than Indiana Ever Was.
rortlMd Correspondence of the Hoaton Journal.
In fact our divorce laws actually en
conrago a dissolution of tho marriage
contract, and, as a result, the nunilier
of divorces is annually increasing, while
BOorea of lawyers find the business of
getting parties divorced a proliuibleono.
One lawyer is reported to have said that
his practice would , not bo worth a
picayune were it not for, liis divorce
Of the 487 divorces granted lust year,
238 were for destitution, ' 82 for adultery
79 for cruelty, 5,"i for drunkenness and
88 for cither causes, snub, its neglect to
provide, incompatibility of tamper, Ac.
One divorce to which our attention was
called at the time was decreed iu n
certain County for about as absurd and
trivial a reason as one could possibly
conoeivo, and yet, because one liked
"biled vittles" and the other didn't,
there was a want of harmony between
the two which was a sufficient cause
for the marriage relations to lie legally
severed; ' : . . ; . :
The Great Strike.
i The stagnation of trade iu Wales,
owing to the lock-out of laborers in the
coal aud iron works, seems to ba much
greater than any of which complaints
have been made iu this country. Ky
laud's Trado Circular mentions dozens
of iron works iu Wales where work
is wholly suspended. Ono employed
11,000 hands another 12,000 liands. The
iron works havo suspended operations
for want of coal, not for want of orders
so that the "lock-out" of laborers in the
collieries is the initial causo of the stag
nation. ' The effects ' nro wido-sproad.
The tracks of the railway companies are
crowded with empty cars and trucks,aud
the employes of the railway companies
are ibeiug discluirged or employed in
miscellaneous work to ' retain them in
the service; locomotives are laid up in
the sheds, and the wages of workmen
depending on the custom of the iron
workers and colliers are lieiiig reduced:
"in Liverpool acres of ships, which in
ordinary times would lie sent to South
Wales port to be loaded With coal, are
aid to be laid up in tho docks," and
me worse oi it is, that there is no pros
pect as yet of a resumption of work.
The Black Hills Gold Excitement.
The wild gold reports from the" Black
Hills continue with each returning mail,
but come . ohieiiy through - Chicago
sources, the latest a Sioujt City telegram
to the I iiter-Ocean of theOordon expe
dition, giving extracts from a letter of
Mr. Whitney of the party. This gen
tleman is not endorsed by any reliable
persons as yet, although the Inter-Ocean
says that he was formerly the proprietor
of the Madison House, and that i his
stalmnents are not questioned tlioro,
wuere lie is well ana luvorubly known.
Tho letter dated February 1, Curtiss
1'emK, liiacK tuus, says:
"I tliink I have struck the country
that I have been hunting .to make my
fortune iu. It is a spleudid country,
aud there is no doubt but there are mil
lions of gold here. There is oidy ono
drawback this winterer-cold weather and
deep snow iu the gulches. The south
side of the Hills is bare,' and our cattle
live and keep fut; but it is bad about
prospecting. Htill some of the boys are
working and making fair wages, i Close
to our stockado is a place where no
miner would think of looking for gold,
but we sunk a holo and struck it: 1'hcre
is no doubt in my mind that na soon as
tho snow goes off in tho spring, . so that
we can get intOitho mountains we will
strike the biggest kind. I am telling
you what niy opinion is. I don't wont
to create excitement in Bioux City or
anywhere else, bat if I were a young
man I should emigrato to the Clack
Hills the first chauue I had to ooine
through." . . i .... .
Mr. Whitney has also 'written to his
wife in Chicago a follows:
"We find the Rloek Hills all that has
bean represented mountains of quarts,
plumbago, and irn. i OoUt we rlud in
every pan that has been taken ont. It
is my opinion ihat it is as riiih as it ever
m in California."
