SUNSHINE IN SUMMER
tTho sunshine and tho summer
A little while are mlhcyi
Tho blossoms on the whitethorn
The rose and columbtna
The happy birds that wake the bowr
Vlth sweetest music after showra
Their Bong to me Is hope and cheer
The little while I linger hotel
Tfho mists above tho meadows
The silver of the rills
And those dark waving shadows
That nit along the hills
Are mine Theyre the unmlnted ore
From which Faith gets her metal pure
An Inspiration ever sweet
Attends the shadows at my feet
II know that there Is grandeur
In yonder sweep of sky
Tho mute and boundless ocean
The mistwreathed mountains nlghl
There is a powr that guides my feet
From day to day A something sweet
That whlrptra to my heart or joy
Arvi wiilch no ivll cn destroy
1 listen to the murmur
Of winds In grasses green
And In tho lordly aspens
Their sllvry loaves botweenl
Asone who walks with Gladness I
co cut and pralso tho summer sky
Tile furrowed Holds tho waving corn
And bees that vocalize the mornl
X marvel at tho beauty
Who Universe displays
3 wonder at the dawning
And passing of tho days
X task my aching brain to find
The laws applied to humankind
In valnl Above around beneath
The only laws are life and death I
3 love the hopeful season
When Faith In reaping sings
3or seated by the roadside
I wait the sweep of wings
And as I wait Earths pleasures seem
Like Aladdins wondrous dream
But Love of all Is perfect best
And to he Is my angelguest

I Theatricals in Ennis Gulch I
ITbeatricals
By Paul P Harris
Q
Written for thl Taper
1 VERY miner In the gulch barring
L old Eddie Grim who was deaf
dumb and half blind was on the tip
toe of expectancy There never hod
been a theatrical troupe in the gulch
nor had the most visionary of its four
score Inhabitants thought there ever
would be
Kansas Joe allowed that no such
event could be pulled off Women
folks never will stand for belli
dragged way down into Ennis Gulch
JOodd mill from nowhere jest ter
spiny act fer a gamblin cussin fight
in passel o men Taint nateral no

any woman thet would so fer ferget c
her sex I dont lay no calcerlntions I
on seein it done said Joe Sandy
Crowley who had been married four
times while living in civilization reck
oned women had done stranger things
frtiore now and Billy Ennis son of
thcfiate old man Ennis who first dls
toverea the rich deposits in the gulch
and who died with his boots on a few
months subsequent to the discovery
the result of carelessness in not pull
in1 JuRt calculated that there was no
accounting for tastes
Kansas Joes reputation as a shrewd
jufee of human nature was destined
Ito be shattered for on the day ap
pointed a scraggy weatherbeaten
little hand of barnstormers appeared
doe wished that he hadnt been so
sartin but felt almost repaid for
Ibis loss of reputation when he saw
the evolution of a theater from the
old warehouse
I
Tae manager of the company was
not at all a tenderfoot and had had
liis day prospecting for the yellow
dust Though habitually penniless
lie was full of good cheer and many
were the good ones that he told at 1
the expense of the fiercelymustached
i leading man and even his low comeI
diun came in for his share of the
drubbing but the story that meant
most of all to his hearers was one
lie told of the Little Lady darkhaired
Margaret who was becoming such a
genuine actress He told them how
Le found her in Denver pale and
wasted trying to earn enough money
sis seamstress to support herself and
her invalid mother how she had
been used to better things and that
she had been defrauded of her in
heritance by a mucntrusted guardian
and that it had been within her power
lo reclaim her own and put an end
< lo all of her want but that she had
not done so feeling that she could
better afford to endure poverty than
3ie disgrace
disgraceGreat
Great credit this manager took to
lilmself for his keen discernment and
Ibis ability to bring to the surface real
jjenlus wherever it existed and how
ever deeply it might be buried in pov
erty or even worse
bylirnrt
htnrt and when the curtain was rung
upon that memorable night Which
proved to be both first and last of
the performance everyone looked for
the little lady with the hollow cheeks
and the large eyes and they thought
how fine a thing it would have been
if she in her time of her greatest
need could have been deluged with
the golden treasure of a nights win
flings at the faro bank The money
meant so little to them and it would
nave set everything right with her
and her sick mother and when they
thought of the guardian who was reo
sponsible for all of the wrong their
laces were not pleasant to look upon
Little Ladys part that night
might have been taken from her own
life so real was the story of hardship
and selfabnegation and her audience
flaw her only living as she had lived
suffering as she had suffered before
they Vad known her
A tall wellboned man with slight
3y Btooplng shoulders sat on the ex
treme right of the improvised theater
and poomcd very much affected as the
play progressed He was swayed by
Tery shadow of emotion ns if he were
seeing real life instead of a very or

This motion with the amendment
that me marshal be instructed in
stead of requested as the latter word
by no means expressed the meaning
and that the instructions be both
given and put in execution forthwith
passed the house without a dissent
ing voice and though the subscrip
tions were solicited with a showing
of gunsit was more as a matter of
form or through force of habit than
because of necessity for there was
not a man of the fourscore who
thought himself rich enough in the
remembrance of good deeds well done
to afford to lose the opportunity
Kansas Joe was appointed a com

The jury not being quite certain an
to how much of the fiercemustacbed

to play act in a realistic manner and
how much to pure depravity gave
him the benefit of their doubts but

A Wonderful Oiler to Women
We havefdpelvejtfwbrd of a moat
remarkble offer whlbhis to be mad c
to women by The Delineator of
New York
Taking the fact that next yea r
yeaa
lineator offers to distribute 17500
among 1901 women The plan i Ii
so cleverly arranged that a woman
1Ihlng in a small fowl or village
has just as good a chance to win
one of these 1901 prizes as a wo
man living in a city because the
prizes are given tor the number of
subscriptions secured in n town in
proportion to the population of that
town instead of being given simply
to those who send the largest list
subscriberswhich of course
are most easily obtained in big
cities Another clever feature ot
the plan is that all she cities and
ane d
Canada have been arranged in
seven classes The cities of the
greatest population are grouped in
Class 1 and as these cities are not
very many the prizes offered are
twentyeight the highest prize be
ing 500 and the lowest 5OO The
total amount of prizes given away
in this class is 1000 The remaining
s
maining smaller towns and villages
fall into six other classes and as
the number of towns in a class increase
e
crease because of course there
are more small towns han large
ones the amount of prizes give n
away to a class increases BO that
in Class 7 there will be 4000 dis I
tributed among 601 winnersI
Furthermore to everyone who 1
fails to win one of the 1901 prizes
there will be paid an extra com
mission on subscriptions provided
they equal one out of every two
hundred inhabitants of the town
trom which the contestant sends
themI
themThis
This is altogether a very liberal
offer and one which the famous old
Delineator is well able to make
good From our pointof view we
do not see why such an offer needs
to be made by the Publishers of
The Delineator for we believe it
already has nearly half a million 1
subscribers Its strong hold upon
the affections of American women I
i has come in the past generation
from its practical advice about
dress details and home matters

Plain Talk
To THE COLORED VOTERS OP
NEW YORK NEW JERSEY OHIO IN
DIANA WEST VIRGINIA AND ILLINOIS
Perhaps you have been notified
or will be notified that John C
Dancy of North Carolina will can
vass your state in the interest of
McKinley and Roosevelt We
wish to call your attention to the
fact that this is the same Dancy
who two years ago after the
wholesale killing of the colored
people in Wilmington North Caro
lina took it upon himself to go
North and circnlate the report that
the colored people were to blame
for all the trouble which caused
the killing of so many of them
The colored people of North Caro
lina have always trusted Mr
Dancy but he has proven himself
unworthy of the trust reposed in
hVm He is one of those scheming pol
iticians who place their jobs above
their much abused people
Let me say to the colored voters
of these United states of America
beware of J C Dancy for be does
our race more harm simply to hold
his fat job than the sainted Fred
Douglass did it flood during hia

life of earnest lolling in our behalf >
It1lucv has deceived the people t r
our odes peaceful old state and If
givens chance he will deceive you
Dancy is no longer honored by the
people of his own state The mark
himc
Be it rememberedcolored brethren
that aUof the big office holders
among the colored Republicans have
promised Mark Hanna to deliver
their entire colored vote for McKin
ley and Roosevelt We have al
lowed the socalled leading Ne
groes to sell us outlong enoughand
haltn
tCouJq we forget the fact that Mr
McKinley has not uttered a word of
protest against the cruel treatment
bye
him in 96 and who u votes he
is seeking for reel i on there
would be no excuse for ua deserting
him in this hour of triton Dancy
Cheatham Lyons < Grcun and others
say that Mr McKinley is a staunch
wouldn
like to know from what authority
ae
loss to see why a colored man should
vote for Bryan It is all right
toy
vote for Roosevelt after his coward
ly attack on the brave and loyal
colored soldiers who fought so gal
lantly at San Juan Hill but they
cant see for the life of them how
any colored man can afford to vote
Bryann
Well a few days heuce thousands
of Negroes will show themfar better
than they can tell themselves how
the job can be done
We have always been trubto the
Republican partyand if Mark
Hanna and the President can give
justa cause for Jaying aside the
principles of the Republican party
surely the colored voters can give
good reasons for laying them aside
The negro has been cruelly treated
under the present administration
and he has greater cause for de
serting the Republican party to
day than he has had since his en
frachisement If the Negro will do
his duty to his God and himself
alike on the 4th ot March 1901
William J Bryan will be inaugu
rated President of these United
States of America
I claim that we have allied our
selves to the Republican party as
a race too long for our good In
the South the NegrosQbest friends j
are Democrats and the sooner he
realizes that fact and ceases fight
ing them the i better it will be for
him We have nothing to lose in
casting our vote for Bryan and
S e enson We can very well af
ford to follow such race lovers as
t
Bishop H M Turner Hon W Lee 1
Person L Milton Turner and 1
scores of others
Again I say beware of Dancy
Cheatham and the rest of the selft
styled leaders they are not inter
ested in the welfare of their race
They want to see McKinley re
elected in order to hold their fat
jobs What care they for the rest
of their people Not one of them
1
would hardly speak to you after
the election Go to any one of them
1
to aid you to get a spittoon job andj
they would put you off on the ex
cuse Civil Service Colored breth
I
ren these fellows would sell theI
entire race to hold their jobs
