ATTEMPT TO WRECK TRAIN.
An attempt was made to wreck tho

early Sunday morning 2G miles north
ot Fulton on the Illlols Control. Cross
ties had .been placed on tho truck.
Whon tho tnilu was stopped soveral

This was In Atlanta, but It smacks ot

Hoft, lowaud sweet, yet clenr and itronit.
Hose the rich volume of your sons'.
While on the languid Auitutt air
That awept your face anil stirred your hair
Invoked as liy aomu iiinulo spell
Wild KiMta of tmiKlc rote and fell.
In Uio vague hollows of the night
The calm stars swung iteadfaatly bright;
A bird belated In the gloom
Flew neatward with bedraggled plume;
A star shook loose her fiery train
And awept scrota tho sapphire plain ;
Then all was still except tho strong
ltlcli tone of your sweet song.
I stood entranced; my ou) was bound;
Melodious thrall enwrapt me round.
I lived again the wild uncouth
Dear devious days of my lost youth;
Hut llooda of song swept In and drowned
The old-time singers sorrow-crowned;
I aaw once more the friends ot old,
And heard their voices manifold;
The waste wan years slipped (lowly by
With many a change ot sea and aky.
With many a change of form and hue
And left me happy there with you.
There's a big stir being nindo by
lot of "advanced thoyght" people
who claim that the world needs n.
new religion. They are mistaken.
Tho world does not need a now re
ligion. What It needs Is for Uio peo
ple to live up to the teachings of the
ono wo have. Tho world needs less
petty bickerings about tho minor
points 'and differences In creeds and
dogmas and more of tho real brother
hood of man. Tho religion of Jesus
Christ Is ull-suft!cing hut a great part
of tho world'M people persist In mis
interpreting Its teachings.
Tho mau who does business with
