THE BEST WE CAN.
When things don't go to suit us,
Why should we fold our hands
And say, "No use in trying,
Fate baffles all our plana."
Let not your courage falter,
Keep faith in God and man,
And to this thought be steadfast
"I'll do the best I can."
If clouds blot out the sunshine
Along the way you trend,
Don't grieve in hopeless fashion
And sigh for brightness fled.
Beyond the clouds the sunlight
Shines in the Eternal Pluu ;
Trust that the way will brighten,
And do the best you can. '
Away with vain rcpinings ;
Sing songs of hope and cheer,
Till niauy a weary comrade
Grows strong of heart to hear,
lie who sings over trouble
Is aye the wisest man,
He can't help what has happened,
But does the best he can.
So, it things won't go to suit us,
Let's never fame and fret,
For finding fault with fortune
Ne'er mended matters yet.
Make the best of whate'er happens ;
Bear failure like a man ;
And in good or evil fortune
Do just the best you can.
The Broken Hearted.
George D. Prentice.
I have seen the infant sinking
down, like a flower, to the grave; the
strong man fiercely breathing out his
soul upon the field of battle; the mis
erable convict standing upon the
scaffold, with a deep curse quivering
on his lips; I have viewed Death in
all his forms of darkness and ven
geance, with a fearless eye.but I never
could look on woman, young and
lovely woman, fading away from tho
earth in beautiful and uncomplain
ing melancholy, without feeling the
very fountains of life turning to tears
and dust. Death, is always terrible
but, when a form of angel beauty
is passing off to the silent land of the
sleepers, the heart feels that some
thing lovely in the universe is ceas
ing from existence, and broods with
a sense of utter desolation over lonely
thoughts that come up, like spectres
from tho grave, to haunt our mid
Two years ago I took up my resi
dence for a few weeks in a country
village in the eastern part of New
England. Soon after my arrival
became acquainted with a lovely
girl, apparently about 17 years of age.
She had lost the idol or her pure
heart's purest love and the shadows
of deep and holy memories were rest
ing like the wings of death upon her
brow. I first met her in the presence
of the mirthful. She was indeed
creature to be worshipped her brow
was garlanded with the young years'
sweetest flowers, her yellow locks
were hanging beautifully and low
upon her bosom and she moved
through the crowd with such a float-,
ing and unearthly grace that the
gazer almost looked to see her fade
away in the air, like the creation of
some lovely dream. She seemed
cheerful and even gay, yet I saw that
her gaiety was but the mocking of
her feelings. She smiled, but there
was something in her smile which
told that its mournful beauty was
but the reflection of a tear and her
eyelids at times closed heavily down
as if endeavoring to suppress tho tide
of agony, she looked a3 if she could
have left the scene of festivity and
gone out beneath tho quiet stars and
laid her forehead down upon the fresh
green earth and poured out her
stricken soul, gush upon gush, unti
it mingled with the eternal fountain
of life and purity.
Days and weeks passed on, and that
sweet girl gave mo her confidence
and I became to her as a brother
She was wasting away by disease
The smile upon her lip was fainter
the purple veins upon her cheek
grew visible, and the cadences of her
voice became more weak and tremu
lous. On a quiet evening in the
depth of June I wandered out with
her a little distance in tho open air
it was men mat sne related to mo
tho story of her passion and of the
blight that had come like mildew
upon her life. Love had a portion of
her existence. Its tendrils had been
entwined around her heart in its
earliest years, and when they were
rent away they left a wound which
flowed until all the springs of her life
were blood. "I am passing away"
she said, "and it should be so. The
winds have gone over my life, and
the bright buds of hope and the
sweet buds of passion are scattered
down and lie withered in the dust, or
rotting away upon the chill waters of
memory. And yet I cannot go down
among the tombs without a tear. It
is very hard to bid farewell to those
dear scenes with which I have held
communion from childhood, and
which from day to day have caught
the color of my life and sympathize
with its Joys and sorrows.
"The little grove where I have so
often strayed with buried love, and
where, at times, aud even now, the
sweet tones of hia voice come steal
ing around mo till the whole air be
comes one Intenso ana inounitul
melody that pensive star, which we
used to watch in its early rising, and
on which my fancy can still picture
ooking down and beckoning me to
ids own bright home every flower,
and tree, and rivulet, on which the
memory of its undying love has set
ts seal, have become dear to me, and
t cannot without a sigh close my
eyes upon them forever."
I have lately heard that the beau
tiful girl of whom I have spoken is
dead. The close ot her life was as
calm as the falling of a quiet stream
gentle as the sinking of the wind,
that lingers for a time around a bed
of roses and then dies, "as it were
from very sweetness."
It cannot be that earth is man's'
only abiding place. It cannot be
that our life isa bubble cast up by
the ocean of eternity to float a mo
ment on its wave and then sink into
darkness and nothingness. Else why
is it that the high and glorious aspira
tions, that leap like angels from the
temple of our hearts, are forever
wandering abroad unsatisfied? Why
is it that tbe rainbow and the cloud
come over us with a beauty that is
not of earth, and then pass off and
eave us to muse upon their faded
loveliness? Why is it that the stars
which "hold their festivals around
the midnight throne," are set above
the grasp of our limited faculties
forever mocking us with their un
approachable glory? And finally,
why is it, that bright forms of hu
man beauty are presented to our
view, and then taken from us leav
ing the thousand streams of our affec
tion to flow back iu an Alpine tor
rent on our hearts ? We are boru for
a higher destiny than that of earth.
There is a realm where the rainbow
never fades where the stars will be
spread out before us like the islands
that slumber on the ocean and
where the beautiful beings which
here pass before us like visions, will
stay in our presence forever. Brig
creature of my dreams! In that
realm I shall see thee again. Even
now thy lost image is sometimes
with me. In the mysterious silence
of midnight when the streams are
glowing in tho light of many stars,
that image comes floating on the
beam that lingers across my pillow,
and stands before me in its pale, dim
loveliness, till its own quiet spirit
sinks like a spell from heaven upon
my thoughts, and the grief of years
is turned to blessedness and peace.

e desire to say to our citizens,
that for years we have been selling
ur. King's isew Discovery lor Con
sumption, Dr King's New Life Pills,
Ducklen's Arnica Salve and Electric
Bitters, and have never handled
remedies that sell as well, or that
have given such universal satisfac
tion. We do not hesitate to guar
antee them every time, and we stand
ready to refund the purchase price, if
satisiactory results do not lollow their

great popularity purely on their

Sherman's Remarkable Dream.
St. Louis Republic.
Writers who have' busied them
selves picking up anecdotes and inci
uents ot the lile or Sherman appear
to have wholly overlooked the story
of his remarkable dream. Tho edi
tor of "Notes for the Curious" has
had tho account in a scrap-book for
upwards of twenty years. It is as
One night the General took refuge
in an old farm house and had fallen
into a deep sleep when he was visit
ed by a most exciting dream. He
fancied that the house in which he
slept was surrounded by a band of
guerillas, who had dug a hole be
neath tho room in which he lay,
filled it with powder and touched it
off. The explosion that followed
was terrible, and the General thought
he saw himself flying through the
air 111 sections. The shock of this
terrible experience caused him to
jump to the middle of tho floor.
Hastily dressing, ho left the building,
lie had not gone far into the night
when a red glare shot up from the
farm house, followed by a terrible
explosion. The building was wreck
ed, but the dream had saved the
of the great General.
Dr. (J. Y. Karle, Pickens, S. C,
writes: "I recommended 15. D. 15.
to a man who had suffered for years
with a malignant ulcer on his leg,
that seemed to resist all other treat
ment. After using four or live bot
tles tl.' ukr begun to heal and his
leg is now sound and well."
A Lake Formed in Colorado Desert.
This desert is in the eastern part of
Sa Diego, the southern county of
California, and is about two hundred
miles directly south of what is known
as Death Valley, on the boundary
line between California and Nevada.
The Souther Pacific Railroad runs
through the Colorado Desert, on a
northwest by southeast route, and its
station at Salton, 90 miles from the
Colorado River, marks the lowest
evel on the route, being 2G3 feet be
ow the level of the sea, while for
some thirty or fifty miles southeast
ofSalton the land is 250 feet below
the aea level, the width of the portion
having this great depression varying
from five 'to twelve miles. In this
tract, during the latter part of June,
water began to appear, seeming at
first to emanate from some unknown
subterranean source, and by July 1 a
ake some thirty miles long by
twelve miles wide and two to three
feet deep had been formed around
and stretching to the southeast of
Salton. It was soon discovered.
however, that there was a strong
current in the lake from the south
east, or the direction of the Colorado
River. Several channels, ordinarily
dry, lead from near the banks of this
river to the desert basin, and it was
soon apparent that the water came
from the river, which is always at
its highest stage rate in June, as the
result of the melting of the wiuter
snow in the mountains of Colorado,
Utah; and Nevada. This river at
Yuma, in southeastern corner of the
State,isl40feet above sea level.andMaj
Powell, of the United States Geologi
cal Survey, places it as only a short
time back, geologically, when the
river emptied into the Gulf of Cali
fornia some two hundred miles north
of its present mouth. The river car
ries an enormous amount of sand and
silt, and is supposed to have built at
its mouth a dam which cut off from
the Gulf the large areas of country
now included in the Colorado Desert
and Death Valley region. The av
erage rainfall hero is only three inchs
es a year, and, with the temperature
as high as it is, evaporation proceeds
very rapidly. It is thus that were
left these great basins, the lowest
land of the United States, and, as the
evaporation here proceeds at the rate
of 100 inches a year, it is not supposed
that any quantity of water which
may now be poured into the Colora
do depression by the overflow of the
rtver will cause more than tempora
Why it is Popular.
Because it has proven its absolute
merit over and over again, because it
has an unequalled record of cures, be
cause its business is conducted in s
thoroughly honest manner, and be
cause it combines economy and
strength, being the only medicine of
which "100 Doses One Dollar" is true
these strong points have made
Hood's Sarsaparilla the most success
ful medicine of the day.
Women not a "Class," but a "Sex.'
Goldwin Smith, in the Forum,
If women were really a claas with
out votes, their class interest might
suffer. Rut we repeat, and it is the
very gist of the matter, that they are
not a class but a sex. Whatspecia
interest ot women can be named
which is in danger of suffering at the
hands of a legislature composed of
their husbands, sons and brothers?
What grievance is there, redress of
which has been denied ?
Refore man hands over the govern
ment to woman, he ought to be
satisfied that he can not do what is
right himself. Iu an age of "flabby'
sentiment and servile worship of
change, we have had enough of weak
and precipitate abdications. To one
of them we owe the catastrophe of
the French revolution and the de
luge of calamity which has followed
To man, as he alone could enforce
the law, the sovereign power came
naturally and righteously. Let him
see if he can not make a just use of
it, in the interests of his wife and
children as well as in his own, before
he sends in his resignation.

Thousands of dollars worth of
chickens are destroyed by Cholera
every year. It is more fatal to them
than all other diseases combined.
But the discovery of a liquid remedy
that positively destroys the Microbes
has been made. Half of the young
chickens are killed by Microbes
before they are fryers. A 50-cent
bottle is enough for 100 chickens.
It is guaranteed. If, after using
two-thirds of a bottle you are not
satisfied with it as a cure for Chol
era, return it to the druggist from
whom you purchased it, and he will
refund your money.
