Hen whom the lust of office docs not kill:

Men who possess opinions and a will
Men who have honoi men who will not lie:

I've never known a dog to wag
His tail in glee he didn't feel,
Nor quit his old-time friend, to tag
At some more influential heel.
The yellowest cur I ever knew
Was! to the boy who loved him. true.
I've never known a dog to show
Half-way devotion to his friend:
seek a kinder man to know,
Or richer, but unto the end
The humblest dog I ever knew
Was, to the man who loved him, true.
I've never known a dog to fake
Affection for the present gain
A false display of love to make,
Some little favor to attain.
I've never known a Prince or Spot
That seemed to me vkat he was not.
lint I have known a dog to light
With all his strength to shield a friend,
And whether wrong or whether right,
To stick with him until the end.
And I have known a dog to lick
The hand of him that men would kick.
And I have known a dog to bear
Starvation's pangs from day to day
With him who had been glad to share
His bread and meat along the way.
No dog, however mean or rude,
Is guilty of ingratitude1.
The dog is listed with the dumb.
No voice he has to sneak his creed
His messages io unmans come
15v faithful conduct and by creed
He shows, as seldom mortals do.
A high ideal of being- true.

W\ TO HE REMEMBERED.
James A. (Jarriehl before the Supreme
Court ot the United States in \*W.
S\ hen PeHeles had made Greece immortal
in aits and arms, he invoked the genius oi
Phidias to devise a monviiiKiit which .-iiouid
symbolize the beauty and glory of Athens
Thar artist selected for his theme the tute
lar divinity of Athens, the Jove born god
dess, protectress of arts and arms, of indus
trv and law, who typiiied the Greek con
ception of composed, majestic, unrelenting
force. He erected on the heights of the
Acropolis a colossal statue of Minerva, arm
ed with a spear and helmet, which towered
in awful majesty above the surrounding
temples of the gods. Sailors on far ships
beheld the crest and spear of the goddess,
and bowed with reverent awe. To every
Greek she hod the symbol of power and
glory. Rut the Acropolis, with its temples
and statues, is now a heap of ruins. The
visible gods have vanished in the clearer
light of modern civilization. We cannot
restore the decayed emblems of ancient
Greece but it is in your power, O Judges, to
erect in this citadel of our liberties a monu
ment more lasting than brass, invisible, in
deed, to the eye of flesh,* but visible to the
eye of the spirit as the awful form and
figure of justice crowning and adorning the
Republic rising above the storms of politi
cal strife, above the din of battle, above the
earthquake shock of rebellion, seen from
afar and hailed as protector by the oppress-
ed of all nations dispensing equal blessings
11 covering with the protecting shield of
i the weakest, the humblest, the meanest A
until declared by solemn law unworthy W
protection, the guiltiest of its citizens.
