The Two MyHtcrles.
We know not what it J?, dear, this
aleen'sn deep and still.
The folded hands, the awful calm,
the cheek so pale and chill;
The lids that will not lift again,
though we may call and call,
The strange, white solitude of peace
that settles over all.
We know not what it means, dear,
this desolate heart pain,
This dread to take our daily way
and walk in it again;
We know not to what other sphere
the loved who leave us go,
Nor why we're left to wonder still,
nor why we do not know.
But this wo know: Orr loved and dead,
if they should come this day,
Should come and ask us "What, ls
life?" not one of us could say.
Life Is a mystery deep as ever death
Yet oh, how sweet it is to us, this life
we live and see.
Then might they say-these vanished
ones-and blessed is the thought!
"So death ls sweet to us, beloved,
though we today tell vc naught :
We may not tefl it to "thc quick-this
mystery of death
Ye may not tell us, if ye would, the
mystery of breath.''
Tho child who enters life comes not
with knowledge or intent,
So those who enter deal li must go as
little children sent:
Nothing is known. But 1 believe that
God ls overhead.
And as life is to the living, so death is
to the dead. Wall Whitman.
A SPRINGTIME MESSAGE
To Those Who Have Laid Loved ?ear
Did you ever stop t'.> think that
God hides away so many secrets under
the snows cf winter? Who eau tell
what mysteries are buried beneath the
white cover, so deep, so dazzling in its
purity when it ti ist falls on the brown
leaves and withered grass ? lt is true
to its trust and never whispers of the
possibilities that are being sheltered
and nourished by its enfolding. The
flowers are only sleeping, their tiny
pubes arc thropping with life down
in the darkness, and after t hey awake,
rested and refreshed they will bud
and blossom more beautifully than
The have branches of Hie tte s bend
lovingly down in a feeble attempt to
protect the little sleeping blossoms
and the wind, wc say, sighs mourn
fully as its rocks them to and fro, I ut
it is only chanting a lullaby that is
known to nature's children alone. All
is quiet and pe.?c? under .sno?. |
awaiting the sound of "spring's trum
pet" to awaken bo a larger life and
greater loveliness. So when "life's
winter is past"' and thc snow has melt

what wonderful surprise await us. |
Life, full,.free, throbbing lire that
will never need to s eep again under
the winter's sorrow, for
"Behind ihe dim unknown
Standeth Ci<>d within the shadow, keeping
Watch above his own."
And what seemed death to the nat
ural sense was only a hiding away of
the germ immortal with God standing
guard, ready to bring lt forth in good
time. The king who comos and
spreads his robe of ermine over till,
treads, oh S-J gently, because of the
sleeping bud-; and tender blossoms be
neath his feet in their earthly cradle.
The awakening time is not yet and
. they will sleep more sweetly under
.the ermine robe. Why do we not
think of this when our bea: ts are
heavy laden because of what, bas been
hidden away from us, remembering
that there lives one who never loses
sight of our Howers, even though they
wither here in thc cold blasts that
come from the sea of pain ai.d the

the gardens that are sunkissed etern

come back to us from under th-2
winter's snow and we are of more
value than they. The little hirds
that build their homes in thc height-,
and bide in the clouds come back,
when they bear ol' the spring's new
birth or resurtection and wc are of
more value than they. We, too. will
awaken from tho sleep that eli ses th .
weary eyes just long enough for thc
angel in waiting to bear us o or the

"Morning Lund" of which it is said,
"and there shall be no night there"
neither anv snow, or pit i ess rain is
needed to kill and make alive, from
the depths will ct,me forth the hidden
treasures. D"ad, we said of them,
but not so. Like a gerathat refuse.',
to sparkle is bidden for a time from

after he bad received the first bullet

Monday night that bc thought that
Carroll meant to kill him also. Myers

The trouble probably bad its origin
in Hie reporting of Carroll for violat

said that some time ago, Caultield,

liave since been an "informer," in the
employ of the constables, had given
information against Carroll, causing ;
the enmity which existed and which
resulted in the shooting. At all

the mote serious trouble which fol

that lio can not positively say just
what provocation was given for the

Carroll and just then, Hunter
Sharp, John Murphy, Capt. James
l-Mat iey and Capt. J. B. Francis, who
had previously been along with Caul
lieid and Myers, rushed up and gave
Myers their assistance in trying to
keep the men apartand to stop the trou

to the advice of bis friends and On the
request of Myers, he started for bis
home, on Anson street. Carroll was
left behind, as Caultield and the rest
of the party walked up King street
and turned into Hasell street. lt
was said Monday night by one of the
witnesses that just after Hie party
turned into Hasell street, Carroll was
seen to lie following and was heard to
remark, ''1 got bim now where I want
ulm." The party was walking slowly
through Hasell street, and discussion
?f the affair had in fact ceased, when
thc men crossed Meeting street. The
stre t is particularly dark in this
block. Caulfield was walking ahead
of Ids live friends arid when within a
short distance of Maiden lane, Caul
lieid, suddenly stopped, probably see
ing Carroll U.om up before him with
thc pistol, and took a step or two
hack towards thc party, when Carroll
?pened tire. None of thc party seemed
to bave been paying any attention to
Carroll, and it was suggested Monday

many of them were made with a view

Gentlemen:-1 desire to call your

law read 1890 Instead o? 1905; soin
appointing trustees this year, allow
me to suggest that you commission
them for one year only so as to be
ready for thc new law next year. If
you simply allow the present trustees

O. B. MARTIN,
Ho Kind In the Home. .
The habit of treating those who are
noan st and dearest to us wltb dis
courtesy, is one that clouds the sun

young and looking for your prince,
just test bis home couduct. Do not

young man is in the parlor; lind out
what bc is in bis mother's sitting
room. Do uot judge bim by thc way
he can tip his hat. but by thc way he
treats the old, especially his parents.
Tbc home where mutual consideration
rules is always a happy one, if it be
the top Hat of a cheap tenement or an
abode but on the prairies. There
should be a certain respect observed
in thc most intimate relationships.
Wives have- no me re right Lo search
their husband's pockets than they
have to take the same libetry with
an acquaintance. We have no more
right, to rob the baby's bank than to
force the vault of thc national bank.
We may burt the feelings of a society
acquaintance and there is no great
harm done, beyond an estrange meut
of two people who care but little for
each other: but when we stab thc fond
mother's heart, that loved us with a
love next in tenderness to heaven's, or
wound tbe sensitive feelings of a
brother or a sister, life ls not long
enough to ex tl act the sting from

Young Men Wanted!
Every young mau in this town and
county is wautcd! Wanted from the
street corners, from the loafer's ren
dezvous, from the Idler's promenade;
turn^your steps into the highway of
noble aim and earnest work. There
arc prizes enough for every successful
?yorker, crowns enough for every
honorable head that goes through the
smoke of conflict to victory. There
is within the young manan upspring
ing of lofty sentiment which contri
butes to lils elevation, and though
there are obstacles to be surmounted
and difficulties to be vanquished, yet
with truth for his watchword, aud
leaning on b's own noble purposes and
exertions, be may crown his brow with
honors. He may never wear the war
rior's crimson wreath, the poet's chap

though no grand universal truth may
at his bidding be confessed to the
world, though it may never be his to
bring to a successful issue a great
political resolution -to be the founder
of a republic whose name shall be "a
distinguished star In tue constellation
of nations-,"-yea, more, though his
name may never he heard beyond the
limits of Ids own neighborhood, yet is
his mission none the less a high and
holy one. But why clo so few young
inch of early promise, whose wise
hopes, purposes, and resolves were
radiant as the colors of the rainbow,
fail to distinguish themselves? The
answer ls obvloi s They are not will

success. Whatever aptitude for par

none but the laborious and the studi

Remember Mother. Boys.
How the ohirp of that lonely cricket
brings to mind the dear old homo,
yrs, years and years and years ago, we
are afraid to say bow many-when the
breezes crept in under the low ! barg

swept the roof of the old-home a lov

and tuberoses was wafted in from tbe
garden. We remember tbe deep dark
sbaduw under the rough old oak, and
tbe ruddy lights through the red cur
tained windows; the pleas mt rooms,
the books, the music, and-mother.
Do you remember mother? It is your
mother we mean. Tho mother who
laughed over our baby antics, grew
proud of our boyish triumphs, bid ber
sad heart beats when we lett the home
fo!d to win our way in the world, tbe
mother whose hair grew gra^ in her
care for us, whose heart grew bumble
by the multitude of ber prayers lu our
behalf; whose face grew more tender
as the years marked their progress
upon her cbeecks, whose stops faltered
and whose hands trembled because
ber bouyanoy bad been given freely iu
our t chair. The mother who staid
in tho old home wbilo wo were far
away. The mother biri in the nest
after the lledgling had down. There
came at last a letter to UB In another
band, and dear old mother was at
rest. Then we went home but dbe old
time home was gone fi r.:ver. Ah, we
know, how trivial everything then
I seemed beside mother's love. We
know how a kind word of old would
have cheered ber heart. We know
how the business cares crowded out
the home letters; and how mother
watched and waited for the tardy mis
sive. We know how ber heart bled for
an old time caress, and how she went
to rest with a prayer on ber lips for
you. And now it is too late, ami the
crickets play their lonesome melody,
while a white stone in "God's Acre"
marks where mother rests after her
work is done. Remember mother, boys,
before it is too late-we have yet time
to show our appreciation of her .love.
See ber bair, it ls as white as snow,
and it has been bleached by care of us.
Watch her steps how tbey falter.
Cherish her. Show her your love. Court
ber as you would a sweetheart, If1 you
would make her happy. All too soon
this mother will be gone, and then

To those who are desirous of living!
one hundred years we can see .notb-l
lng-objectionable in the above' sugget
tions. So far as they apply to local
life, we presume none of our citizens
could te worse og for following them.
In fact, our present dally life is
modeled much after the same lines.
We are not all fortunate enough to
have roof gardens for sleeping apart
ments, hut the tendency to seek pure
air is in evidence among tbe lowliest.
If we can't get abundant exercise in
walking, we get about as much In bal
ancing ourselves in overcrowded trains
and trolly cars, and we eat moder
ately enough because, with the ten
dency toward increased prices for food,
there is no other alternative.
Public and private baths are in
creasing everywhere at an unusual ra
tio, and the tendency of the age, even
among the fair sex, is to combine
comfort with fashion i i such a way
that beauty or "the mode" shall not
be the price of physicial fortune.
Thc French physician's doctrine is
simply that of rationality, and evolu
tion seems to be following exactly on
that theory. *

Tell of Their Weird Night Forty Feet
IN SUBMARINE BOAT FULTON,
Which LiaYB Twelvo Honrs on tho
Bottom of tho O o e a n
With Nino Mon
At Newport, R. I., gallant navy
men spent twelve hours Wednesday
night and Thursday morning in the
tiny living room of the submarine
torpedo boat Fulton, as -she rested
forty feet below the surface of
Narragansett Bay. It was a test of
the splendid nerve of tho naval fight
lng man, as well as tho supreme test
of the deep-under-the-sea war eugine,
and both emerged triumphant.
All communication .with tbe land
was cut off. The roof of'the conning
tower' was bolted In, and silently the
waters of tbe bay closed over the grim
looking craft at a quarter past eleven
Wednesday night, and she slowly sank
below the surface, having on board
nine otllcers and men, who had vol
unteered for the test.
From that hour until a few minn tes
after eleven Thursday morning the
venturesome nine experienced, wide
open eyrs, the fanciful dream of Jules
Verue. Dawn appeared, and showed 11
an absolutely unruled suraface where
the Fulton bad gone down. For all u
tbe interested Jack Tars at the New-11
port Torpedo station knew, tbeir
mates bad met the fate of tho aub
marine crew that went down to death
recently off the coast of England.
A NIOIIT WITH DEEP-SEA FISH.
And for that matter, fer all that
the tars aboard the Fulton knew, they
bad taken tbeir last look at daylight
and bad gone down in a living tomb.
Air tbe life that remained to them
was contained in a cup shaped steel
tube. TonB of water encompassed
tbem. The breaking of a valve the,
loosening of a bolt, tbe tightest dis
arrangement of the machinery, such
as frequently happens wherever
machinery is used, might mean death
to tbem in one or its most horrible
Deep down there in thc sea, sur
rounded by entirely new and hidden
perils, it might be supposed that tbe
Jack Tars sat In silence, each one
busy wltb bis prayers, but they did
not. Some read magazines, others
p'ayed chess with improvised pawn's
and others slept, while still others
kept watch and stared at tbe tish
that gazed at them through the bull's
eyes as curiously as the Ash stared at
"It was Just like the forecastle of a
man-of-war," said one of the otllcers.
Science triumphed over death. A
few minutes past ll Thursday morn
ing thc surface of the bay just off
the torpedo station began showing air
bubbles on a scale slightly larger than
those thrown by a porpoise.. Tbere
was an Interval of five minutes, and
then slowly from the depths rose a
great mass of gray Iron. It looked
like a whale rising for a sunning.
"llOW'd THE WEATHER?" CAULK ASKS.
Gradually it shook the water from
Itself and took definite shape. A
group of a hundred Jack Tars on the
wharf h t loose a cheer, and the Ful
ton was Moating on the surface of the
Captain F. T. Cable was the first to
appear. "Goad morning," be said
cheerily. "How's the weather?"
Cable bas made about two thousand
trips below, in European as well
as the American waters. He con
fess's a preference for deep-sea life,
with an occasional breathing s?.ell,
fishlike, above the surface.
Naval Constructor Woodward fol
lowed to the deck.
"Splendid!'' be cried, with the air
of a scientific man.
One by one they crawled up through
the conning tower, and as fast as they
got out in the clear, lighted cigars
and pipes. The navy man thus far
has found only one grave objection to
the submarine boat. Ile cannot
smoke under the water.
The men were as fre->h looking as
though they bad spent the night in
barracks, or swinging comfortably in
hammocks aboard a battleship. They
bad breakfasted comfortably off cann
ed goods and coffee, cooked on an elec
trie stove, and fruit. They seemed
loath to leave the Fulton and step
back on dry laird. .
In every detail the test had been a
supreme succ ss. At no timo was any
d'scomfort felt by any of the men.

may appear, for eleven hours and a
half of the twelve that they passed at

Captain Cable says they could have
lived with the same supply for several
hours more; but they drew on tbeir
reserve supply In order to test the
pumps and satisfy Constructor Wood

In naval circles here the success of
the Fulton's test is regarded as of the
utmost importance. Naval Construc

went through every test splendidly,

the Fulton, or any boat of ber type,
can make a cruise < f ?too miles and re

What Hie Crew of thc Fulton Say < f
The following experience of the crew
of tbe submarine boat Fulton while
forty feet under water will be read
WHAT CAPT. C'AUI.E SAYS.
Having been down in submarine
boats about two thousand times, the
sensation was not new to mc. But
there ls no particular sensation. The
air was just as good below, as it is up
here. I slept comfortable. 1 know that
Captain Woodward is very particular
about the air in his sleeping room, and
when he was satistkd theie is nothing
more to be said.
For eleven hours and a half we liv
ed on the free air in the boat. We real
Iv did not have to draw on the reserve
supply, but I thought it well to test
the apparatus to see that it was in
working order. There is no more dan
ger in one of these boats than there is
in any other kind of boat.
We sank to the bottom easily, and
we were pretty well tired out from the
hard work of the previous day, and yet
some of us played cards or read maga
zines and thc papers of tbe day until
about 10 o'clock, when wc all went to
sleep, save one, wbo stood watch for
two hours and then called bis relief
from time to time. We could hear ves
sels with propellers passing by.
We had cooked some of the food,
which was relished. Our stay below of
twelve hours was nothing new lor me
and for our men, as we have on many
occasions remained below an.l without
using compressed air at all.
Sleeping under the water In submar
hie beats is easy acquired by men who
woik with these types of boats, and
lhere is no more to fear in them, like
our trip just ended, than in sleeping
on board a water vessel of any kind
Everything in tbe boat worked well
and we simply carried out the orders
of the trial board and were happy and
willing to lay down and sleep. There is
no reason why the Fulton could not
have stayed down twice as long, for we
had food and water, reading materials,
cards and checker boards to keep us
happy for that length of time.
Some of the boys bad writing ma
terial on board, and when they awoke
Thursday for breakfast, which con
sisted of eggs, milk, coffee and bread,
they wrote letters to some of their re
latives, and while these letters were
being written there was bardlj the

WU AT OTIIKKS SAY ABOUT IT.
Constructor Woodward says: We
got along splendidly. There is no
particular sensation about sinking
except that of descending in an ele
vator. After we got down the sena
Hon, if one closed one's eyes, was ex
actly the same as it is on thc surface.
There was no diQlculty in breathing,
the air was pure and wholesome, anti
shortly after going down I turned In
and went to sleep. I slept soundly.
Others slept also, but I am Informed
that some of the men read magazines
and played cards. But they all got a
proportionate amount of sleep, and so
far as I am aware, feel now no ill
effects fiom their experience. The
test was in every respect a success.
H. H. Morrell says: "Its a peculiar
sensation when you begin to go dawn.
If you have any fear at ab, then is
thc time lt strikes you. You know
that you are shut, in that there is
water all around you, and lt sort of
catches your breath, but after a while
you become accustomed to being
where you are and it doesn't seem at
all strange. It is very quiet, of
course, and there is no movement of
any kind. 1 bad a sleep, and I slept
well and ate well. We read maga

about our strange position, but I
