BRIDE OF TUB AVTVMS ' $Ulf.
Oh, golden rod I sweet golden rod!
Bride of the Autumn Sun;
Has he kissed ' thy blossom tlili mellow
And tinged tliem one by one?
Did the crickets sing nt thy chriateulng,
When, in his warm embrace, '
He gave thee love from his fount above,
And beauty, and cheer, and grace?
lie brightens the asters, but spou they fade;
He reddens the lumnch tree; ' i
And the clematis loses its sunny bloom,
Dut he's true as truth to thee.
Scattered on mountain top or plain,
Unseen by human eye,
He turns thy frii'ige to burnished gold
By love's sweet alchemy. ;
And then, when the chill November comes,
And tlje flowers their wor have done ,
Thou Hrt still unchanged, dear golden rod,
Bride of the Autumn Sun.

"Just prai.se is only a debt, but flat
tery is a pnvent." , , f .
This nUicl is called forth, by one in
the Farin and Homes 'of August iGth,
from the ftble pen of Mr.' Me.ss.er
which contained these words:
"A just recognition and acknow
edgement of the services of deserving
men, while in the prime of life nn
activity would bring luindreds of tlie
best class of men to the front and eo
far towards enabling merit instead of
cheek to become tht predominant
force in all the avenues of farm and
These words contain the key to the
uplifting of humanity to its best con
dition and capacities. While finan
cial credits and business credits gener
ally are ruinous, on the other hand
there is nothing that helps the world
onward and upward so fast as the
kind of credit to which I refer to
Too many people are afraid of praise
when it becomes their turn to bestow
it, however much they may wish to
necome tne recipients of it ; and yet
the approval of the public is the best
encouragement a man can have to
stimulate him to further action in
ways that are right. Don't flatter
that is not what I mean. Never be
stow a sort of hollow, meaningless
praise. Uut when you see a worthy
act, no matter what it is, be it some
thing that shows a clean spot, a true
nobleness of heart, don't be afraid to
speak highly of it. Don't be afraid
of making others better than you are
by praise. It is a means we can a
avail ourselves of for doing so.me good
to humanity in its facilities.
If you are an employer, don't be
afraid of making a few lauditory re
marks now and then in the present
of those in your employ when the
are doing well.
rome men anu I get so out ol pa
tience with them act as though they
thought they would spoil a man
they praised him a bit, and lose sight
of their own worth, which they al
ways try to keep prominently before
their eyes in the bargain!
Poor souls, some of them have so
little worth I don't wonder they fear
they will lose sight of it ! It is the
littleness of man that makes him feel
great. The smaller a man becomes
by perversion of passions or corrup
tion of talents, the bigger he seems to
himself. We see instances of this all
around us, and they simply mean
oppression oppression of the race.
It should be so that,
"For all good causes
We can find a place,
In all mankind
A brotherhood to trace."
But this key note to the uplifting of
humanity is a sadly neglected feature
of true life, except at the hand of the
flatterers who do more harm than
good in their hypocrisy. There are
some things you will praise a man for
behind his back that would make a
mightier man of him if said to his
face and by you.' Put yourself in as
humble a position as you choose, be
little ypurself all you. please, and by
all means avoid calling attention to
yourself, but don't, don't be too shy
of encouraging a good thing in others
when you see it.
No sensible man will be anything
but benefitted by such treatment, and
we don't ask you to ruin fools by it.
Suffice it to say that too much of the
praise administered goes to some dig
unary wno nas goi ueyonu it. Jt is
not hero but in the lowly walks of life
where men have got much to achieve
and little to achieve it with that it is
needed most. A. P. Reed

' Toads In Bocks.
Many well authenticated stories of
the finding of living toads and frogs
iu solid rock are on record, and that
such things are possible was demon
strated here recently, when the work
men engaged in Varley & Everill's
lime rock u1 north of the city,

fr ... pped out of a pocket in the
center of the stone, saya the Salt Lake
Herald. Of course, the occurrence
created a tremendous sensation among
the workmen, and operations at the
quarry were for ft time suspended,
and the movements of the frog were
watched With' great Interest.' The
animal was somewhat suiailer than
the ordinary frog, and was perfectly
white. Its eyes were unusually large
and very brilliant, but the frog was
apparently blind. Where the mouth
should have been there was only a
line, and on the feet was a dark,
horny substance. Mr. Everill at once
took charge of the curiosity and put
it in a tin can, but the frog died the
next morning. lie brought it down
town and it was examined with in

and it was afterward presented to the
museum, where it will be preserved

A Celebrated I'ractical Joker Geta the
Tablet Turned on Hint.
Young Edward II. bothorn ia pretty
nearly as much disposed to practical
jokos as was his father, who in his day
beat the world's record in that lino, but
the young man has recently had to ac
knowledge that for once he was over
come. The incident occurred at tho
hotel whoro Mr. Sothern was stopping.
A party of his friends were discussing
the laughable and effective sceno in tho
second act of "Lord Chumloy," in which
ho takos his morning bath behind a
screen, and after splashing in a bath
tub full of water speaks of tho coldness
of the water and his perplexities in
dressing. The group of his friends fell
into an argument as to whether Sothern
could do tho wholo thing in nine min
utes, tho timo which it occupies on tho
lho debate culminated in a wager,
tho winner to donato stakes to a charit
able purpose, that Mr. Sothern rould not
enter tho bath-room at tho hotel, robed
only in his dressing-gown, take his
plunge, dress himself a3 in tho play, re
peating tho lines set down in the samo
manner as he doos each evening, and re
appear in nine minutes. Mr. Sothern
thought ho could, although ho had never
tried it. At tho timo appointed tho per
sons interested met Mr. Sothern in his
room, and whilo he retired behind a
screen to disrobe for the trial one of tho
number volunteered to fill tho bath-tub
with water, stipulating that at the ap
pointed cue only Mr. Sothern should
plungo into it so as to bo thoroughly
submerged. This gentleman , was the
ono who had wagcrod that Mr. Sothern
could not succeed. When all was an
nounced as ready Mr. .Sothern entered
the bath room, . partially closing tho
door, and proceeded with the lines of the
play, speaking thom just a3 earnestly a3
he does on the stage. People who havo
seen tho play will remember that ho
speaks of tho water being frozen, his
calling for a'hammer to break .the ico,
his shivering in contemplation, and then
saying: "One brave plunge, and all is
over," just as ho is supposed to dash into
tho wator. ' ' " , ' '
Sothern mado a brave jump into the
bath tub at tha hotel, and tho noise of
tho plungo was distinctly hoard outside.
Then camo up a groat and . agonizing
wail. "Oh," shrieked Sothorn, "you
villains havo filled this tub with scald
ing water. Never mind. I'll make it
yet, but I will do my shivering outside
of tho tub."
There woro shouu of laughter from
tho other room, but .Mr. Sothern pro
ceeded with the lines and business of
tho scene to the end, and issued from
tho bath-room fully drossed and asked
