Highest of all in Leavening Power
TWO WAYS TO LIVE ON EARTH.
There are two ways to live on earth;
Two wars to Judge, to act, to view;
For all things here have double birth
A right, a wrong; a faise, a true.
Give me the home where kindness seeks
To make that sweet which seemeth small;
Where c cry lip in fondness speaks.
And c cry mind hath care for all;
Whose inmates live in glad exchange
Of pleasures,, free from vain espouse;
Whose lives beyond their means no'er range,
Kor wise denials give offense;
Who in a neighbor's fortune find
So wish, no impulse to complain;
Who feel not never felt the mind
To envy yet another's saint
Who dream not of the mocking tide
Ambition's foiled endeavor meets
The bitter pangs of Hounded pride,
Nor fallen power that shuns the streets.
Though Fate deny its glltt'ring store.
Love's wealth is still the wealth to choose;
For all that gold can purchase more
Are gauds. it is no loss to losel
Some beings, wheresoe'er they go.
Find naught to please or to exalt:
rheir constant study but to show
Perpetual modes of finding fault.
While others, in the ceaseless round
Of daily wantsjmd daily care.
Can yet cull flouers-from common ground.
And twice enjoy the joy they sharcl
Oh, happy they who happy make!
Who. blessing, still themselves are blestl
Who something spare for others sake.
And strive, in all things, for th bestl

Tht 1-ast Gladiatorial Combat.
Gladiatorial games "were prohibited
by an edict of the Emperor Constantino
in A. D. 325, but from some cause,
probably the londly expressed disap
probation of the people, the edict was
allowed to fall into disuse, and its pen
alties were never visited on its violators.
During the reign of Honoriusthe defeat
of tho Goths in Italy was celebrated by
games, but in the midst of the fights in
the amphitheater of Vespasian a monk
named Telemachns found his way into
the arena and parted the combatants
with a large processional cross.
The populace swarmed over the bar
ricades and tore the monk to pieces,
but the moral effect of the heroic act
was permanent, and in A. D. 404 an
imperial edict abolished gladiatorial
sports in the Coliseum, and shortly
after throughout the Boman empire.
The fight stopped by Telemachns was
the last in the Coliseum, and that struct
ure is now consecrated to the honor of
Telemachus and the Christian martyrs
who perished in the persecutions by
Nero and other emperors. St Louis
