THE KOCK ISLAND AHGU& SAT UK DAY, MARCH 2, 1889.
The gats of Paradise, the poets say,
Swings open, untold splendors to diadoxa.
Once In thousand years, compelling those
Who would behold to linper In the way.
In the court I waited patiemlyy
And watched the changing throng. Life's Joys
Lured one by one away. 1 shunned repose.
Lent the great should more to my dismay.
Long years crept on. One day 1 clotted mine eyes,
- By weariness an instant overcome;
The (rata swung open wide, and closed again
Forever lost my glimpse of Paradise.
O striving, toilsome years ! O cruel doom 1
To linger, filled with sharp, regretful pain.

THE BELLE OF CROSSCUT.
- Crosscut was a river town, with ail that
the. name implies. . Log runners and
millionaires mingled on an equal footing.
There was no caste in Crosscut May the
best man win, was the motto of bcr citizens,
and a genuine love of fair play dominated
the hearts of those rude knights of the border.
It was springtime. The log drive had
passed Crosscut. The rough crowd of river
men was goue aud' the old time quiet reigned
again in the town. However, a log rolling
contest was at baud, and the people from the
surrounding settlements began to gather at
an early hour.
Crosscut's champion was Casper Fall. He
was young, an athlete of the woods, and the
pride not only of the gray beards of the town,
but of the younger men and maids as well.
"Ton must win, Casper, n said Jako, the
athleteS halfwitted brother. If you don V
"Wen, if I don'tr quoried Casper, as the
simple fellow hesitated.
"I was going to say, if you don't, youH
never git Nell Given. She'll marry tbe
champion; I heard her say so."
"You did exclaimed the young log run
ner. "I didn't think Nell would go back on
a fellow that way. I think a few brains, as
well as brawn, ought to weigh something In
a girl's eyes." "
Casper walked aw!, flushed and di.stnrbed.
n knew he hail no claim on the belle of
Crosscut She was old CoL Given 's daugh
ter, and he was the wealthiest man in town,
while Casper hadn't anything save good com
mon sense, strong arms and an energetic na
ture. He might never have fuet Nell but for
the fact that they both attended the some
school, and as children, boy aud girl, were
enthusiastic friends. "Ml lie your wife
some day," said roguish Nell, w hen they were
roaming the woods ou the return from the
old log school house one summer afternoon,
and the big freckled fiiced boy kissed her, and
thus was the compact sealed As they grew
older, the two drifted apart, naturally
enough, and when tho old colonel sent his
daughter to Chicago to a young ladies' school.
the breach widened immensely. To say that
Casper had given hor up, however, would be
stating that which was not truo. He mot
her sometimes after her return. She was an
accomplished young lady now, aud he folt
keenly Us own awkwardness and want of
Until the morning forth log contest Cross
cut's champion did not know who was to be
his contestant "A gentleman from Chicago
had proclaimed in the colonel's store that he
had a man who could beat the world on a
log, and CoL Given took exceptions to the
statement, at tho same time declaring that
he would back a man to the extent of f 10,000.
Tbe Chicago gentleman, who was sweet on
the colonel's daughter, good naturedly re
fused the bet, but, instead, offered to say no
more about a certain debt the colonel bad
contracted with him (Mr. Colron) if his man
(tbe colonel's) won the contest
"If my man wins, I hold you to the debt,
colonel, and," lowering his voice, "you are
to speak a good wcr 1 for me with Miss
To this the colonel agreed, and a day was
set for the log rolling contest.
In passing the house of CoL Given on the
evening before the day set for the struggle,
Casper Fall saw Mr. Col ton and Nell on the
porch In earnest conversation. This was not
a pleasant sight to the young man, and the
added words of half witted Jake served to
render Casper miserable.
"Nell Is only playing with my feelings,"
he thought. "She mnatis to marry the Chi
cago man anyhow, and merely brings in my
nam for a heartless joke. Well, Ml win the
contest, and then Ml leave Crosscut for good.
I've nothing to keep me here only Jake, and
I am quite sure he's smart enough to take
care of himself. "
Such were the bitter filings that filled the
heart of the young log runner. Ho was too
proud to go near the belle of Crosscut before
the contest, aud the remark made by Jake
that he had once henrd Nell say she would
nferry tbe victor, convinced Carper that she
had grown from an artlcs girl to a heartless
A crowd of several hundred people gath
ered at tbe river bank above CoL Given'
lumber mill on the morning of the great log
roiling contest One. of the most eager faces
was that of half witted Jako, Casper's half
brother. Ho was as anxious for the outcome
as the champion himself. Tbe feminine por
tion of Crosscut was well represented, and
among them was Nell Given, who had for
escort Hr. Colton, of Chicago.
At 10 o'clock a cheer went up as Casper
Fall stepped upon one of the logs and glanced
keenly over tbe multitude. His slender yet
sinewy figure was set off by a close fitting
Jacket and tights. On his feet be wore the
spiked shoes of the log runner. As the
shouts went up, handkerchiefs were waved
by fair hand, and Fall saw Nell Given wav
ing hers high above the rest His handsome
face flushed a little and an angry lignt
gleamed in his eye when he saw her turn and
laugh In the face of her escort
"A fine exhibition I am making for the
gaping crowd," muttered tbe young log run
ner. "This will be the last time, I can tell
And then a second and louder shout went
up a Casper's contestant stepped from the
bank and started nimbly running over tbe
logs. He turned a somersault and landed
safely within ten feet of Fall, coming up
bowing and smiling, like an acrobat in a cir
cus. This was the Crst time Casper Fall bad
looked upon the man be was to meet in a
struggle for the mastery. One glance served
to show Casper that bis rival was no mean
antagonist He was as supple as an eel, with
tbe dark face and fierce eyes of a Spaniard,
No doubt be bad been a matador in the Span
ish arena, and Casper realized that be wai to
win no easy victory.
CoL Given tittered the cry. The log rollers
bowed; then a tremendous shout went up
that made the heavens ring, and then the
Ah I such log spinning was never seen be
fore at Crosscut Backward, forward, with
the velocity of mill wheels the logs spun
under tho fort of txrth men. Now and then
particularly good movement was cheered
loudly. During the greater part of the time,
however, a deep silence reigned.
Mr. Colton rubbed his hands and smiled.
"My man will win," be congratulated him
self. "He's too much for the Wolverine.
Bee I waent that a grand turnf Don't you
see, Miss Given, your champion is tiring
he will lose; hurrah!"
The last shout fell from the lips of Colton
as his man bounded Into the air and landed
on the log on which Casper Fall was per
forming. This move was legitimate enough, but by
this time Casper had discovered two things.
First, that he was better log roller than
the man pitted against him; second, that the
Spaniard was resolved to win, even at the
axoense of fairness. .
"Ill beat him here and fight bun after
ward," muttered Casper, his teeth set in
Both men were on the same log now, spin
ning it with lightning rapidity.
With a grating cry the Spaniard left the
log, landing on another one near, w hile at
thetsanie moment bis ears were saluted by a
derisive yell from tbe multitude on the shore.
"There, Mr. Colton I whore's your cham
pion now?" exclaimed Nell, tapping his arm
with her hand. Did you see that! Casper Is
tbe better man. Hurrah for Casper!"
Pretty Nell Given flaunted her handker
chief high, and it caught the eye of Casper,
who felt thrilled at the thought that she still
desired him to win. Glancing at his rival at
this moment, Casper saw that bis dork face
was yellow with rage, a fct that satisfied
the champion of Crosscut that ho would now
have an easy victory, for a man in a rage
was apt to lose the management of bis feet in
a contest like this.
Again tbe two men spun their logs rapidly,
performing various figures, first on bauds,
then on feet, and in these movements the two
were about evenly matched. There was but
one way to w in tho victory. The one who
succeeded in getting his rival into the river
would be declared the champion. The Span
iard had made a legitimate attempt to do
this for Casper and failed. He now changed
his tactics. He ceased rolling his log aud
walked toward the khore. Had be given up
the contest I It seemed so at first, aud a re
lieved feeling swept over Casper FalL Half
witted Jake stood close down to the water s
edge aud looked into the eyes of bis brother's
rival as bo walked toward tho land.
"Look out, Casper!" culled Jake at the top
of bis voice. "Ho's comin' for ye!"
with an imprecation the Spaniard turned,
facing Fall, bent low and darted forward
like an arrow shot from a bow. ' ion

A dull thud followed, and the next in. ant
tho Saniard luy in the water, fkatiu; away
without a movement
A wild shout went up that rent tho very
heavens. Casper still kept his log. His rival
was in the water aud the victory was his,
but amid it all a strange feeling visited the
young chaiupiou. He realized what had
bapicued, if the others did uot Tbe Span
iard's attempt to win a victory by foul means
bad cost hun dettr. His head had come in
contact with a broomstick that held the logs
in place. Senseless, the treacherous man was
floating away to his doom. One glance was
sufficient to satisfy Casper Fall of tbe truth.
He pluugod into the water, and, seizing bis
rival's hair, draj"ged him to the boom and
called for holp. This was granted, and whon
the sileut form of Manuel Gorr was laid drip
ping on tbe shore, a naked dagger was found
clutched in his right band. Great was tbe
commotion that now ensued. After tbe Crst
shout weut up over Casper Fall's victory the
settlers gathered about the prostrate form of
"His skull is crushed ho is dead!" de
clared CoL Given in solemn tones, as be
modo an examination.

Dark looks were now cast upon Mr. Colton,
who essayed to explain.
"I know Manuel Garr had served a trin In
tbe penitentiary," be said, "but I had no
thought that he would murder a man if he
could not fairly beat him."
Nevertheless, the Chicago man was frowned
upon, and be found it convenient to leave
Crosscut at an early hour. It was a sad
termination to the day's festivities and proved
to be the last log rolling contest iu that
As for Nell Given, the incident quite so
bered her. She admitted that she had flirted
with Mr. Colton, but it was Casper she loved,
and in good time the two were made one.
Casper Fall has proved the stuff that is in
him by forging to the front as a successful
lumberman. CoL Given is proud of bis son-in-law.

Teuipted to lie Actresses.
"What wonder that a beautiful aud cluver
society woman should be strongly tempted to
become an actress?" said a young lady recently
to The Man About Town. "Look what they
have to gain) Fortune, famo, a world wide
appreciation of their beauty cr talents, and
freedom from the monotonous round of social
duties. I dont believe men can appreciate
tbe fascination which the stage possesses for
wotsea. Tbey take to it naturally. It ap
peals to their emotional and artiste natures.
Hasn't It been said that all women are actors
or Is it something stronger t The fact is,
whether it has ever been announced by a
famous personage or not, that the feminine
sensibilities make them far more appreciative
of the mimic portrayals of human emotion
than men can ever become, and this appre
ciation of acting is what makes great actors.
When one considers this natural inborn love
