An Old Poem.
T read it back there somewhere in those olden
&kr Which sterner life has done with and discarded
I know it spoke of roses blooming by the ways
That Love trod, and then of the thorns on" Sor
And then of tears and memory and pensive gaze,
And but I never can recall the lines,' somehow.
I know not whom the author was; his station,
Did not impress themselves upon me at the

With soul and sweetness, from his sad and sim
And lingered, as have lingered never lines of fame
Within my heart, with throb of tenderness sub

The meter that it carried with it, or the feet
The verse contained, or whether it was short or
But I have not forgotten it was very sweet
And full of sobs and sentiment, and right and
And all the things required to make our lives
Tonight it comes to me from out the dear, dead
All dim and indistinct, as dreams of childhood
Or face of loved ones that sad Memory has cast
So near within the heart, and in the mine so
This much I know, its theme, a prophecy at last,
Tells ray own story at Hope's everlasting bar.
In the Skating Rink.
Whirl and joy and laughter,
To feel und not to think,
Th present nor hereafter
In the skating rink;
To spin and twirl in pleasure.
To live, to move, to do,
To keep the time and measure,
In the skating rink with Sue.
To hold her and to love her
Unspoken though it be,
As pure as stars above her
Is my love and constancy!
And so tonight, out yonder,
With laughter, love and you,
I'll never pause to ponder
O'er life's plans and problems, Sue!
The loathsome offspring of all sin is this,
And playing in a demon's rolcj
A grinning death's head of the soul
The tortured mind's avenging Nemesis.
The Cocke Brothers.
The State of- Tennessee has ever been
famous as the birthplace of famous and
remarkable men. In all the walks of life
her sons have ?.cliieved wonderful results
and won undying fame. None have won
for themselves more laurels in o short a
lifetime than Dr. James II. Coekc and his
twin brother, Walter, who were born in
the city of Knoxville, Tenn., about thirty
live years ago.
Dr. Cocke was one of the most gifted
and remarkable surgeons of his day, and
possessed such wonderful skill that his
feats in surgery were little short of the
supernatural. The most remarkable thing
in connection with his achievements was
the fact that he was blind, due to a blun
der of an oculist, who put a poison in
his eyes in his infancy. In spite of this
terrible occurrence he did not give up
and become a burden upon Jus people., but
started out to make his own way in the
world, and win for himself fame. lie
went to the Institute for the Blind at
Nashville, and after remaining there for
some time he went to the New England
Conservatory of 3Iuie and graduated
from that institution with the highest
honors, being one of the finest performers
ever graduated from there, boon tiring
of music he took up the profession of
medicine and the sciences, and after grad
uation from the Boston Medical College,
and taking post-graduate courses in the
Universities of Harvard and Pennsyl
vania, he began to practice in Boston, and
in a short time won an enviable reputa
tion in that city of culture. He made a
specialty of toxocology, the science of poi
sons, and it was this fact that ruined him,
for he performed all his experiments
upon himself with poisons and their anti
dotes. Dr. Cocke had only the sense o touch
to guide him. and yet he was able by this
faculty to diagno.-e diseases and detect
foreign growths that escaped the notice
of other famous surgeon?. He also per
formed operations that astonished the en
tire scientific world. He wrote a treat
ise entitled "IJIind Leaders of the Blind,''
which is today regarded as an authority
upon the subjects with which it deals.
But it was in the weird fields of spir
itualism and hypnotism that he perhaps
won his greatest fame. No other investi
. gator in these new sciences has ever gone
eo far ino the hidden realms of the mys
terious as did Dr. Cocke. It was in the
occult sciences that the strange and won
derful personality of the man was re
pealed. Hi? offices were the Mecca of the
wealthiest and most distinguished of Bos
ton's fashionable society, and his income
amounted to many thousands yearly.
Dr. Cocke had the delicate faculty of
touch so highly developed that he cau
distinguish the difference in color and tell
the different denominations of paper cur
rency, lie also had the power of facial
expression to a wonderful degree, and
could tell the shape of any building or ob
stacle that might be in his path.
A remarkable coincidence was that he
tigned his own name exactly as did his
father, who bore the tame name, and yet
lie had never seen his father's writing,
nor had he practiced to accomplish such
It was in the field of law that the other
brother excelled. lie was not so unfortu
nate as his brother, but he gained almost
a much distinction in his chosen profes
sion as did Dr. Cocke in his.
Walter Cocke graduated from the
University of Tennessee at the early age
of IS, end immediately entered upon the
fctudy of law in an office in Knoxville. He
had a very retentive memory and was
soon prepared for the practice of his call
ing. Notwithstanding his quick prepa
ration he was said to be one of the best
equipped, lawyers that ever practiced in
the Tennessee courts, and was considered
the most brilliant all-round attorney in
the State. He was a master orator, and
the words flowed from his tongue with an
case and beauty t-hat charmed all who
listened to him speak. He could play
upon the heartstrings of his hearers like
a great musician would upon the keys of
gome grand old organ. He had a most
.magnetic personality, and eould move a
jury at will, and he scarcely ever lost a
case. He often rose to the heights of the
. purest eloquence, and then it was that
he held such masterly sway over his audi
ence. The man was lost behind the beau
tv of his language, and one would listen
enraptured for hours, forgetting the on
ward flight of time. He would carry
his hearers out fo self and lead them into
lands of beautiful dreams and reveries.
Into the web of fancy he would weave the
sweetest threads of song, making one
forget all the sorrows of life and all tha

and quailed before the flash of his eyes
and the burning anathemas that fell from
his scornful lips.
In all his speeches he never referred to
a book, but quoted everything from mem
ory and made all his defenses and prose
cutions in an impromptu manner. H
merely took notes, and when the day ol
trial came Ire would appear in the court
room ready in every particular.
But his mind became clouded in early
life and he died just in his prime at the
age of about 30. Dr. Cocke survived him
but a few years. Thus went out two ol
the most remarkable sons of genius that
the State of Tennessee ever produced.
The Tennessee Central.
The writer had occasion the other day
to take a trip over Col. Jere Baxter's new
railroad, the Tennessee Central. 11ns l

which was ever built on wind and run
on hope. And it mirt stand as a monu

of inspiration. Great, weird, rocky crag

rattlesnakes and other dreaded denizens
of the forest primeval; that clear and

sights which please the eye of the trave'-
er over the lennessee Central. Its moun

true from Cookville to Emory Gap. There
is not one moment of that distance which

sees great logs larger in circumference
than he imagined existed upon the face ol
the earth. Yes, and he sees other things
which give him a clear insight into human
nature than he may have ever had before,

woman barefooted, even at this season oi
the year, selling chestnuts to the passen
gers. At the next stop he sees an old
man-with liuckleben ies for a!e. Again

novel sight of two mountain belles on s

A Case of Self -Def ens.
In a. certain West Tennessee ct unty no
so very long ago there came to irht one
of the most amusing instances of a pica
in court ever re:-ord d in this State. A
citizen of the rural precincts cf-rae into
town one day and took on a f"w more

Report of a. Chorch Wedding by a n
Editor Who Discountenances
An editor who was thoroughly tired of
the foolishness that goes on at a church
wedding finally got even as follows, says
the Atchison Giobe man: "They were
married in great style. All the elite of the
town were invited, principally because it
was thought that they would be more likely
to bring elegant presents for the bride.
'"Of course, the ceremony took place in
the church, and the church was most beau
tifully decorated for the occasion. Potted
plants were borrowed here and there,
wherever they could be secured without
making the owner mad' enough to-fight.
"The bride's young lady friends had the
decorations in charge, and when they were
not making nosegays they were chewing the
rag about the trouble and work, and wish
ing that the bride had sense enough to get
up- her own wedding. The ushers wor
claw-hammer coats, parted; their hair in
the middle and stepped high when they
walked down tha aisle. The coats were
hired from a costumer. and their white
gloves came from an undertaker's, who kept
them on hand for funeral occasions.
"It was a ring ceremony. The ring was a
mustrous gold band borrowed of the vil
lage jeweler. People called the bride love
ly, but she was so homely that hollyhocks
wouldn't grow in the dooryard where she
lived. The bridegroom was dressed in con
ventional black, so called because his father
once wore the coat to a democratic con
vention. The presents- were simply ele
gant. They came from people who couldn't
afford to hire the washing done or buy
baker's bread. Then after a 'sumptuous
wedding supper' the bride and groom went
to St. Louis on their wedding tour, where
they spent more money in 24 hours than
both, of them can earn in a month."

WHEELER WAS TOO POLITE.
Embarraulns Dilemma In Which
"Fighting: Joe Lately Found
At Washington the other day it "was rain
ing: hard, and the street cars were crowded
with passengers more or lew bedraggled.
Among them was Gen. Joe Wheeler. Next
to him was a woman wearing a mackintosh,
who rose to get eff at Fourteenth and F
streets. Gen. Whieler noticed an umbrel
la leaning against il e car seat.
He grabbed the umbrella, ran after tha
woman, caught her at the door and said:
"Pardon me, madam, but you left your um
brella." , t
The woman looked puzzled, but took the
umbrella. Gen. Wheeler resumed hi seat.
Then a woman on the other side of him
gave a little ecream and said: "Why, you
nasty little man, you gave that woman my
umbrella." Then she appealed to the con
ductor. Gen. Wheeler apologized, but the woman
said: "Now you just get right off the car
and get it for me or I'll notify the police."
Meekly the veteran of three wars
tumbled off into the rain and ran after the
woman with the mackintosh. He made a
hurried explanation, got the umbrella and
rushed back to the1 waitine car. -s
As he handed it back to its owner he said:
"I trust you wll ipardon me, madam. I as

Grade Doses by Ilanlf.
One Marshal Le Febvre fell ill of an ague,
and his servant, an old soldier, caught the
malady at the same time. The servant was
quickly cured, but the fever clung to the
marshal until it occurred to his energetic
duchess that the doctor had blundered by
giving the marshal the same doses as to a
Erivate soldier. She rapidly counted upon
er fingers the different rings of the mili
tary ladder. "Here, drink this; thi3 is
suited to your grade," she said, putting a
tumbler to her husband's lips. And the
duke, having swallowed a dozen doses at
one gulp, was soon on his legs again.
"You ve a great deal to learn, my boy,"
was the lady's subsequent remark to the as

Mr. M. J. Rossman, a prominent mer
chant of Greensboro, Ga., and an elder
in the Presbyterian church of that
place, has used Peruna, and in a recent
letter to The Peruna Medicine Co., of
Columbus, Ohio, writes as follows':
"For a long time I was troubled with
catarrh of the kidneys.and tried many
remedies, all of which gave me no re
lief. Peruna was recommended to ma
by several friends, and after using a
few bottles I am pleased to say that the
long looked for relief was found and I
am now enjoying better health than I
have for years, and can heartily recom
mend. Peruna to all similarly afflicted.
It is certainly a grand medicine." M.
J. Rossman. .
