Mr. Coogler is undoubtedly one of

poem entitled "Keep Silent, Hand ''
which we will quote:
Weak hand of mine, keep silent ever,
If this bosom beats apart
From all tb~z is good and true ;
a Pen uot a li::e that would lead to vice,
For what is written on that scroll

Keep silent, hand!I for the gift to fell

For every word I hereon trace
That would keep a soul from heaven.
