Here Is the open portal, whereby Peace
Doth woo thee to her most secure retreat;
Without, the noise and groaning of the street.
In the tierce strife for wealth and wealth's in
crease. Surges like baleful thunder, nor doth cease
While morn to night and night to morn re
peat The dreams of wild ambition, and the fleet,
Strong tide flows onward, giving no release.
But enter thou; a soft encircling gloom
With slender sprays of jeweled light abloom.
Mellow with incense and the breath of
And in the mystic glory of his shrine.
One, Holiest, who with welcoming hands di
vine Doth wait, to free thy soul from sin and care.
Falls on the kneeling multitude a sweet
And sudden hush, as if with one accord
Their eyes beheld the Presence of the Lord,
And bowed in gracious homage at his feet.
Before the shrine the veil of incense rolls;
Enraptured voices, rising high and higher.
With one long burst of love and joy aspire.
In breathless longing of uplifted souls.
O blissful ecatasyl Most precious gift!
That thus can free from all the bonds that
The winged spirit backward to the clod:
And through the mist of earthly cloud uplift
This moment of rapt silence, beautiful
With holy fear, and holier love of God.

The Way the Sultan llules.
In unhappy Morocco written law there
is none. Prisoners languish in chains,
some innocent, some pcuilty, but they are
condemned without trial or released only
through bribery. I find no security for
life or property. The rich deny or bury
their wealth, which is unearthed by
threats anil confiscated by torture. The
poor lie down and starve. I see tribes of
Lardy mountaineers in constant revolt
against the sultan. I cannot see that the
sultan in any sense governs anything or
anybody. He makes no roads, builds no
harbors, fosters no trade, administers no
just ice. He only keeps his place by set
ting one tribe to plunder another, or by
keeping whole populations in a state of
starvation, and hence unable to resist his
As he plays off the tribes within so he
plays off the nations without. He keeps
out their influence by fomentingtheirrival
jealousies. In Tangier itself, the diplo
matic capital of Morocco, there is not a
wheeled carriage. Why? Because there
is not sufficient cohesion among the con
sulates and legations to get a carriage
road made. This is called the status id
quo, and is sometimes lauded as an admir-
able policy. Fortnightly Review.
Food of Prehistoric Man in K a rope.
The wild horses that roamed over Europe
in immense herds appear to have furnished
the chief food of early man in Europe.
Enormous refuse heaps, consisting mainly
of the bones of wild horses, have been
found outside of the caves, as in those at
the foot of Mount Pellegrino. near Pale
mo, where the floor Is formed of a magma?
of the bones of wild horses, which were
either stalked with spears, driven by the
hunters into pitfalls or chased over the
cliffs. Similar deposits have been found
at the cave of Thayngen in Switzerland,
and in front of the rock shelter at Solutre,
near Macon, where there is a vast deposit,
the relics of the feasts of these savages,
nearly ten feet in thickness and more than
300 feet iu length, composed entirely of the
bones of horses, aud comprising the re
mains of from 20,000 to 40,000 individuals.
An i:arly Display of Fireworks.
A very fine display of fireworks was let
off from a magnificent building in the
Green park, London, in November, 1748, to
celebrate the peace of Aix-la-Chapelle.
The next fine display history records is
the elegant one they had in Paris, on May
31, 1770, in honor of the marriage of the
Dauphin, who was Louis X I in embryo.
The French, in their intense enjoyment,
got up such n line crowd 'and had such an
elegant panic that nearly 1,000 persons
were killed. Some of them were pushed
into the river, and some died of shock and
suffocation in the crowd. New York Even
Fishes That Carry Torches.
Many of the dwellers of the deep seas
have no eves, and are therefore unaffected
by the total absence of light, which is one
of the characteristics of great ocean
depths. Others, besides having from one
to 100 eyes, carry torches of phosphorescent
light, which nature has kindly provided
for the denizens of the deep, Chicago
Thompson's Try Humor.
A "Johnian Don" once asked Thompson

he answered, "Well, I did hear indirectly.
for I was aware that emigration had great

Letter Writing; Is Easy.
The most worthless man we ever knew

him. Atchison Globe.
Sleep on Lft Side.
Many persons are unable to . sleep on
their left side. The cauee has long been
a puzzle to physicians. Metropolitan
papers speak with great interest of Dr.
Franklin Miles, the eminent Indiana
specialist in nervous and heart diseases,
who has proven that this habit arises
from a diseased heart. He has examined
and kept on record thousands of cases.
His New Heart Cure, a wonderful remedy,
is sold at Hart z & Bahnsen's. Thousands
testify to its value as a cure for heart
diseases. Mrs. Chas. Benoy, Loveland.
