For The Cairo Bulletin.
In the shelter of his cabin,
Lay tho farmer fast asleep,
Dreaming of the golden harvest
Which his strong arm soon weuld reap. :
From the over-flowing hcavons
Fell rich blessings In s bath,
Making here a silver lattice
Making there a winding path.
'When from out the sighing forest,,
From Its quiet dark embrace,
There appeared three plump brown figures,
And each had a woolly face.
They were bean, these midnight robbers,
And with wicked thievish Joy,
Sprang they In the waving wheat-field,
Sprang to frolic and destroy. .
In the yellow grain they tumbled,
Bending It unto the ground,
Jumping np and rolling over,
And them waltzing round and 'round.
'Till chanticleer gave the signal,
That the day was near at hand,
Then Into the forest bounded
This venturesome young band.
From the cablfl came the farmer,
Glad contentment In his eyes,
Which, on glancing toward bis treasures,
Changed to looks of dumb surprise.
Then a throb of disappointment,
Flushed his cheek with angry red,
Had he can nut a woolly bandit,
'Twould no doubt have lost Its bead.

Look up, my friend, above tho shades
Of dark tempestons night ;
Look up and pierce the gloomy pall
That veils the brilliant light.
The gate of dawn are swinging back
To usher In tho day
As countless star-beams fade from slht
Along the milky way.
Cast your burden off dispel tho gloom
Of sorrow, doubt and dread!
The stars of mercy, peace and hope
Shine calmly over head.
! Take courage, plume thy Inner power
For yet a loftier flight.
And rest not till you nobly ga'.n
Progression's topmost height.
Should clouds of trouble thicken fast,
Aud drops of anguish fall.
Fear not, for heaven's supernal love
Rests calmly over all
Resolve to face the darkest cloud,
And brave the roaring blast,
For right and truth shall guide yon on
And lead you home at last .
Let your thoughts soar away away
Beyond the land of gloom !
Up to the upper realms ot llht
Where flowers of beauty bloom
Still let thy prayers ascend on high;
Where knowledge, love and truth,
Dispense their bounties freely for'.h,
Alike to age and youth.
Pause at that shrine where Purity
Protects each soul from sin
Stay, till the germs of charity
Are plauted safe within ;
Then from the heights thoa'st dared to mount
Bring back thy matchless dower,
And bless the hearts of suffering ones
With sympathy, love and power.
Ask for the strength to bear the Ills
That cluster round your w ay ;
And to surmount the steepest puth
That leads to perfect day.
Plume your proud soul for nobler flights,
Tuuc your sweet voice for sou?.
Send forth the echoes of your notes
Along the haunts of wrong.
Send forth the victories that you gain,
To brighten error's beaten road,
To bring some soul relief.
Cease not to strive, pause not while life
Shall lend Its powers to thcu
Sing as you go In sweetest strain
God's authem of tho free.

SHARPS, FLATS AND NATURALS.
. Essay read by Miss Harriett Mary McK.ec, during
the Graduating Exercises of the Cairo Illgh School
Friday evening. June 1;J, IcTtl
Since the morning stars sang together,
music has filled an all important part in
the economy of nature. Not only does it
represent all that is emotional, but it is
used with equal propriety, to describe the
relation of nature's various parts; und they
are proper or improper as they are in har
mony or tl'scord.
Harmony means perfection end fi. icss.
Discord imperfection and vipleusent rela
tions. Wo believe, that from the ham's of tho
Creator,, nau're came a perfect and
harmonious whole; nothing iHscurdHit to
eye and cur 'i all iN broad expense Its
music was all j, r id pathcuis of joy. Its
chords were- pll common end iM notes
There .were no "FlaN or Slip ps" in fioso
days. No no! .s needed I'f '"3, nono nreded

tuned by a master miiclp'1, Na.,vo ci'mo
in pel 'c;c iane from the hand of Ood.
Wo do not propose to d'cuss tho ques
tion of how it lost iN peif' .:t hu. aiony, and
therefore, how Shi'rps rid 1 itits bf 'amo
necessary. Wo do not bc'ievo they wcro
used in music when grr id Old Father Jubr1
tuned h's he p. 11' simple herti was
pleased with only tho not1 In the scale, "
there was a scale, and there coeld not be
many dircords ruado of them.
But his .children i'icro8'ng in erthly
wisdom, multiplied d'cord, as they mul
tiplied tho notes of tho scale, rnd tho in
struments upon which they wcro produced
in all the'r various combinations, and
"Sharps and Fla's" csmo JnH use.
Probably at first they were only used to
patch up faulty passages, and make har
mony. But they have grown In favor tntil
they uro thcossonllal clement In composi
tion. Thb samo general facts rroTotrue,
In ho 'lives of men.
la the grand old days of simplicity and
innocence thcro was a sameness in the lives
of toicn, a harmony that kept all relations
smooth and pleasant. But with increase
of knowlcdgo came incrcaso of wants, and -
with strains to satisfy these discordant elo- .
mcntscame the Sharps and Flats. First ;
they .appear only as restorers of harmony, .
then as necessary elements in tho general
composition of society.
Seeking to enlargo the different strains
which make up the music of life, we find
first, the Sharps, or thoso peoplo w4io are
always astonishing tho world, with their
great deeds aud works. These are the
men wo believe in and reverence, for it is
natural and necessary to believe in great
Emerson says, "If tho companions of our
childhood, should turn out to be heroes,
and their condition regal, it would not sur
prise us in the least."
The search after the great is the bright
est dream of youth, and the most serious
occupation of manhood. .
But we find tho Sharps in common life.
They are those people who are always
hurrying and driving through tho world as
if what they tailed to do never could bo
done by any possibility by any one
They are tho people who cannot under
stand how anything can be accomplished
without fuss, and who have not a particle
of patience with others who may see the
obvious impracticability of setting the
world to rights, in one's short life-time.
But they soon wasto and exhaust the
powers of life, and dry up the very sources
of true happiness. And when they near
the banks of tho river of death, they will
look back in utter astonishment at the
little they have accomplished.
Sharps abound in all the departments
of life. In tho literary world we have
men of considerable intellectual ability, "
who furnish most of tho spice of literature. ..
Most of the editors of our daily papers
are good examples of this class. What a
reputation they have ! They are a sort of
mental reservoir, that may burst upon you
and overwhelm you at any moment.

ticians, who are tougher than India-rubber,
and whose consciences arc much more
Even the ministry has its share of men
who are always keeping their respective
denominations in hot water, by trying to
create a sensation by tho promulgation of
heretical doctrines, or tho use of questiona
ble mcasurscs to increase their own fame.
If tho bodies of some of these men were
as crooked as their minds, they would be
able to ride on their own backs.
And now, for fear of having our opera nil
in Sharps, let us look for the Flats.
We have heard tho crash of tho orches
tra, in the political and religious wars, and
the different instruments, in tho different
classes of Sharps, but, as it has all been in
the higher keys, let us change tho key and
seek a more mellow strain.
Some ono has said, the best recipe for
going through the world in an exquisite
way, is to feci that every one, no matter
how rich or poor, needs all tho kindness he
can get from others, in the world, and in
this way tho Flats, or tho really good peo
ple, in tho world, are try ing to live. We
have illustrated our Sharps by great men,
but the truly great, belong among tho
Flats, that is, thoso noble-minded men,
who havo sacrificed everything for tho good
of others, for no other motive, save that of
disinterested benevolence, could have
prompted them. What a glory is shed
around every action, evincing such an en
tire denunciation of self I What a dignity
does it import, to tho character of a man,
to seo one governed in all his conduct, by a
principle so far removed from the sordid
maxims and the policy of a selfish self
seeking world. Here is a greatness which
all must acknowledge and revere. Here is
found every clement of character, with
which truo greatness, can bo invested,
and tho solid loundation of tho whole, la
that virtuo which consists in lovo to Ood,
and lovo to man. Thoso are tho people
whoso work is slow, sometimes almost Im
perceptible, but as sure as tho water, which
by constant flowing, wears away tho hard f
est rock. It is their mission on earth to
make life moro pleasant, to calm tho
troubled scenes of war and conflict; they
uro iudecd tho pence makers on earth.
'In every homo thero is somo ono whoso
duty it is to smooth tho rough places of
domestic life, and upon whoso shoulders all
tho burdens fall. And as they tako up the
burdens day after day, wo do not know of
tho heart-aches they enduro. And often,
though wo think wo love these people who
aro represented by tho Flats, we find only
after they aro gone from us, how much we
were really Indobted to them, for tho har
mony and sweetness of our lives.
"In this dim world of clouding cares,
We rarely know till wlldorcd oyes .
Bee white wing lessoning op the skies,
The angola with si unawares."
Experience, somo ono has aptly said, is '
alight hung at the stem of a ship, and
often tho people we find most lovable and ,,
helpful have gained their power to help
others by what they have loomed In the
