HYMH TO TAB FLOWERS.
Day-start that ope your frowulJiH eye to twlokle ... From rainbow galaxies of eirth s creation. And dew dropaou Iter lonely altars'sprlnkle At a libation. Ye matin workhlperal who beading lowly Before the uprlaeu tun, God's lldless eye. Thrown from your chalices a tweet and holy Inoeuae on nigh. Ye bright Mosaics! that with atorled beauty, The door of Nature's temple teasalate What numeroua emblema of Instructive duty Your forms create! 'Neath cloistered bought, each floral bell that awlngeth. And tolls Its perfume on the pausing air, Makes Babbatu lu the fields, and ever rlngeth A call to prayer. Not to the domes where crumbling arch and nolunin Attest the feebleness of mortal baud. But to that fane most catholic and solemn Which Hod hath planned. To that cathedral boundless as our wonder, Whose quenchless lamps tue sun and moon choir the wind and waves-Its organ thunder-Its dome the sky. There as In solitude and shade I wander, Through the green aisles, or stretched upon the sod, Awed by the solema, reverently ponder The ways of God. Your voiceless lips, oh flowers! are living preachers, Each cup a pulpit, every leaf a book, Applying to my fancy numerous teachers From loneliest nook. Floral apostle! that in dewy splendor. Weep without woe, and blutn without a crime, Ob may 1 deeply learn, aad ne'er surrender Your love sublime! Thou wert not, Solomon! In all thy glory "Arrayed," the lilies cry "in robes like ours, How vain your grandeur! ah, how transitory Are human flowers!" In the sweet seenteJ pictures, heavenly artist. With which thou pal u test nature s wide spread hull , What a delightful lesson ihou tmpartcst Of love to ail! Not useless are ye flowers! though made for pleasure: filoomlog o'er field and wave by day and night. From every source your sanction bids me treasure Harmless delight. Ephemeral sages! what Instructors hoary For such a world of thought could furnish scope? Each fading calls a memento uiori, Yet fount of hope. Posthumous clories! angel-like col lection I Upraised from seed or bulb Interred In earth. Ye are to me a type of resurrection. And second birth. Were I in churchless solitudes remaining, Far from all voice of teachers and divines, My soul would find in flowers of Clod's or dalnlng. Priests, sermons, shrines! Horoc4 Smith. THE LI AC. I feel too tired and too old Long rambles in the woods to take. To seek the cowslip's early gold, " And search for violets in the brake; Nor can 1, as I used to, bend My little bed of flowers to tend; Where grew my scented pinks, to-day The creeping witcb-grass has Its way. But when my door I open wide To breathe the warm, sweet air of spring The fragrance comes in like a tide, Great purple plumes before me swing; For looking in, close by the door. The lilac blossoms as of yore: The earliest flower my childhood knew Is to the gray, worn woman true. Dear common tree that needs no care, Whose rootln any soil will live. How many a dreary spot grows fair With thy spring charm thy clusters give! The narrow court-yard In the town Knows thy sweet fragrance.and the brow n Low, bill-side farm-house bides Its eaves Beneath the gray-green of thy leaves. Loosed by the south wind's gentle touch , In perfumed showers thy blossoms fall; Thou asketh little, gl vest much ; Thy lavish bloom Is free to all; And even I shut in, shut out. From all the sunny world about. Find tbe first flower my child nood knew, Is to the gray, worn woman true. Marian Douglas. ONLY A BRAKEMAN. . 'Accident. An extra freight train on the B. & C It. R. was wrecked, last night, by a broken bridge, just leyond Carlyle. A son of the lion. Carlton Ballou was on the train, but fortunately escaped injury. A brakeman by the name of Marshall was the only person killed It was only a short dispatch cast into a corner of the morning paper amid a score or two of others, but it interested me, for I knew the whole brave story so well, and I felt in my heart almost a hatred for the writer, who had done such injustice to a noble life and over looked so grand a deed. I was only the night telegraph-operator at Carlyle not a very exalted posi tion, perhaps, but yet one of considera ble responsibility and trust. From seven in the evening until the same boar in the morning I held in the hol low of my hand the life of almost every man passing over our division of the road. I remember one night, when I was sitting alone in my little cramped up office and listened, from mere force of habit, to the varied messages as they went clicking by to the other stations in the road. The last train for several hours the f reight-a ccommodation from Brighton had been in for some time, and I had nothing to disturb me but my thoughts. 'Well, Billy, how's No. 5?' a voice suddenly asked, as the outside door was pushed ajar. One hour late I replied, hastly, and then, lookii gup, I saw Tom Marshall, a brakeman on the last freight, filling up the doorway. 'Come inside and have a chair, Tom I added, as I rec ognized the face of my questioner. Only a moment, to-night he an swered me, as he sat down at my in vitation, his lantern resting between his feet on the floor. 'I have a call to make this evening, and must wash up a little tirst.' Where away to-night, Tom not up on tne bill again surely?' lie shook his head in the affirmative, his eyes fix ed upon my table where the instrument was ticking away. Of course it's none of my business, my Voy, but it seems to me you go to tne great wbite house too often of late. Ballou might object, and 'tis said they're engaged, you know and I look ed up at bis strong Saxon face from where I lay stretched on a bench by tne walL . I think they're mistaken about that, Billy, but Ballou has more opportunties than I can enjoy,' he replied, very slow ly. 'I only get in here two nights a week, you know, I do the best 1 can. Then it is serious. Tom?' I asked, for f liked this broad-shouldered, fair haired fellow, brakeman though he was. I'm afraid it is with me, Billy he replied, his eyes gazing steadfastly at the lantern between his feet, 'But, good-night; I must go; will see you again as I come in And the heavy door closed behind him. As I sat there alone in the office after he had gone, I thought of all these things thought them over again and again. I had known Tom for two years, and I liked the boy. I knew, or thought I knew, Kate Carr, up in the big white house on the hill. A proud girl enough in her way proud of her father's riches, Iter own beauty, and the dozen suitors who had knelt at her feet. Ever since Tom first sought her society I wonder ed at his welcome. It seemed so strange a thing to me that one so proud of her position, so thoroughly a slave of society as Kate Carr appeared to be, should so openly encourage the attentions of a mere freight brakeman a man of whoa fattily connections we knew noth ing, and whose only wealth was his monthly pay. Still Tom was a young and good-looking fellow enough, and perhaps, after all, she was a little vain at having so handsome a suitor, even though so poor, to add to her lengthy string of victims. I never could believe tiat she had the heart to return his great, honest love, and be willing, in exchange, to sacrifice all her hopes and pride for his sake; and then, besides, rumor had it that George Bal lou, the son of a rich banker of a neigh boring town had already gained her promise, and, from many little things which had fallen under my notice. I began to believe that rumor for once was right. And Tom loved her, and I thought it over all night when I was not busy, and wondered in ray own heart how it would end. Tom never came back to the depot that night, though I looked for him, and his train left eastward while I was taking my breakfast at the only hotel the place afforded, and I caught but a glimpse of nim as they swung round the curve. I afterwards heard the whole story from his lips, but I can tell it best for myself. From his car he passsed up the long hill to where the lights of the Carr mansion were twinkling among the trees, determined to learn his fate from Kate's own lips that very night. The parlor windows were dark when he ascended the stone steps and rang the bell, and the servant who answered it, recognizing his face, told him he would find Miss Kate in the garden. In the moonlight, dreaming ths ever new dream of love, he passed with quick stf p down the graveled path by the well trimmed flower-beds to where the summer-house, thickly shaded by clinging vines, stood at the further end. This was his favorite resting place, and many a pleasant hour was passed there with her his idol, his queen. As he approached now, he was surprised to hear, borne on the still night air, the tone of voices in earnest conversation. In all Tom's nature there was nothing cowardly, nothing base ; but his own name, spoken in a man's deep voice, caused him to halt almost without knowing he did so. I naturally supposed from all I saw and heard that you cared for Tom Mar shall' It was almost a question, and the si lent listener outside in the moonlight bent forward to catch the low tones of the reply. Oh, George, how could you ? Why, he's nothing but a freight brakeman 1 What would papa say if he heard that?' It was the soft tender voice of Kate. And you truly only cared for me, darling Y I only loved you, George.' That was all ; and the strong man that listened, whose only crime was poverty, turned back quietly in the darkness turned back through the low hedge and out into the moonlit road, with pale face and heavy heart. He had loved her with all the giant strength of his strong manly nature he never knew how much before, as he did now, alone in his misery, his suffering, and those heartless, stinging words, 'He is only a freightbrakeman ringing in his ears with every step he took. He was poor, was nothing but a brakeman, had neither wealth nor lineage of which to boast ; but, after all, he was a man, and like one he suffered his loss suffer ed through the long still night, patient ly and silently. As the long Summer days faded into the shorter ones of early Fall, and his train passed baek and forth by the sta tion on its dally trips, I watched Tom, and, knowing so much as I did, I could read his sufferings, though he tried so bravely to hide it all and appear out wardly as cheerful and light-hearted as ever. Poor Tomt the blow was a hard one struck by her little hand, and the strongman bent beneath it, whether he would or no. It was nearly Winter when the end finally came, and that ending was in deed terrible. For several weeks heavy storms had been raging along the entire line of the road, and many fears were expressed by railway officials about the safety of the road-bed between Carlyle and Farmersville, the next station east. All along these few miles there were heavy grades and numerous small bridges and culverts already loosened by previous storms. That night when I went on duty it was raining hard a cold, bitter rain, naif sleet, blown here and there in gusts of heavy wind. The night itself was intensely black from swiftly scudding clouds,broken now and then by vivid glares of forked lightning that seemed almost to tear them in twain. My Instruments were almost unmanageable owing to the electricity in the air, but about midnight a mes sage came through in jerks from the Division Superintendent at Baltou: "Opr, Carlyla. 'Send Iloud with extra rant, to report track at Fannersvilla for No. 2. Move cautiously. -w.B.a" Bond was Tom's conductor, and I handed the order to him immediately. An engine was ready at hand, and they soon had the short train of ten cars made up in the yard. Just as the en gine backed down from the tank and was being coupled on, George Ballou, muffled to his chin, and holding a small leather valise in his hand, came hurriedly around the edge of the depot building. 'Bond he said to the con ductor, who stood there with his lan tern raised to give the signal for start ing, 'I want to go down with you. I must be home to-night Bond looked around rather surprised at the request. 'We're more than like ly to be wrecked before ever we get there, Mr. Ballou he said, quickly. But, if you must go, take your own risk and get on. I don't care.' Ballou, don't got 'it was Tom's voice speaking very low. 'Take my advice, for there's not one chance in ten of our going through to-night without trouble.' 'But I must go,' came the answer. 'My mother has been taken ill a tele gram just received.' Wait for No. 2,' then that will be nearer daylight.' Yei and it might be too late. No I must go to-night, danger or not. Sure ly I may risk it if you can!' I have no one to think of but my self.' The words were almost lost in the wind 'You have Kate, and it is my duty to go, not yours." And the brakeman regretfully turned away. Only a moment did Ballou gaze after his lantern, as it went flickering down the wet platform and then as the short traia started he stepped into the ca boose, and I leaned from my seat to watch Tom swing up on the little iron ladder and mount to the top. Just exactly how it all happened to day I do not know, but at the bottom of the second grade the earth had been washed away from beneath the rails, and they hung almost unsupported just below the surface of the water. Thun dering down the grade in the rain and night, every brakeman at his post on the top, the great freight engine plung ed into the water and went crashing do wn. Car after car was piled up there aad hurled to one side down into the ravine. Clinging to a brake just back of the engine, and peering ahead through the storm, his hands wrench ed clear by the shock, Tom was hurled outward into the air. The crash stun ned him, but the cold water into which he fell revived him again, and he crawl ed out from the debris on to the bank and worked his way back towards what should be the rear end of the train. When the first terrible crash came, the caboose had been pitched violently forward and then flung down, and now hung tremblingly suspended upon a single timber of the culvert, which trembled and threatened each moment to part and let4the battered car fall on to the ragged rocks below. 'Is there any one hurt Cal? Tom asked, anxiously, as he finally found the conductor standing alone in the rain beside the track. No; all out safe, I think close call, though, Tom; awful wreck! 1 never saw a worse in thirty years 1' Help me ! help !' The cry rang out shrill and agoniz ing from the suspenped caboose below them. Help 1 I'm wedged in t Quick r It was Ballou's voice beyond a doubt Give me the axe I' and seizing the weaponTom sprang out upon the totter ing car and dropped down through a shattered window. He knew the slen der, trembling timber could not sustain that weight long. He knew he was going to almost certain death. He knew a moment's delay might rid him of one who had won from him the woman he loved. It was a moment for vengeance. but he forgot it all. He knew a mo ment's delay and all of George Ballou would be a dead, mangled body. But he never hesitated, never doubted what to do. He was only a brakeman, but he was willing to sacrifice his own life, wreck his own happiness, to save the man Kate Carr loved. A martyr, you say a hero. No; how ceuld he be f you iorget be was but a freight brakeman. Here, quick V he cried, as with a few rapid blows he cut aside the broken seat which pinned his rival to the floor or t he car. 'Quick !' for he felt the car settling, and heard the groaning of the timber giving way. CaL catch hlml and grasped by strong hands, Ballou was drawn up through the broken window to the ground above, and then, with a lurch and crash of breaking timbers, the heavy car plunged downward on to the rocks, splintered on their sharp points and dashed to pieces. Just as the morning came, they found Tom lying there, crushed out of all shape, between two great timbers. They brought him up to the depot and laid him reverently in the great ladies' waiting-room, and, as the rail road men bore him by my window, some one in the crowd said: How luckly that only a brakeman was killed." Some way it seems to me that great hearted Tom Marshal has gone home to a Father who never looks to the grimy clothes and the weather-beaten faces of His children, but rewards them according to their deeds. If so, his must be an exceedingly great reward. E. The Icebergs off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland have seriously interfer ed with the fishermen this season. Nantucket has many New Yorkers domiciled in the quaint old place, and the inhabitants think of 'applying to congress for a charter to run a fashion able seaside resort for the elite. '-What's the elite?" said one Nantucker; 'taint no use havln' it down here, anyhow, fur we're taxed heavy 'nough now, you bet?" MERITED PHOMOTION. Gen.

Godfrey Weitzel having been promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel of Engineers, is about remov ing to headquarters at Philadelphia. Gen. Weitzel occupies a prominent place in the military records of the United States. He graduated from West Point, and was appointed Brevet Second Lieutenant, Corps of Engineers, July 1, 1855; Second Lieutenant, July, 1856; First Lieutenant, I860; Captain, March, 1863; Major, August, 1866, and Lieutenant Colonel Sune 1882.

During the nine years General Weitzel has been stationed in Detroit he has expended in the neighborhood of $5, 000,000 in river and harbor improve ments in the district he had in charge. The Nicaraguan Canal Scheme. The house committee on foreign af fairs has begun consideration of Rep resentative Rosecrans bill which pro vides for the incorporation of the Mar itime canal company of Nicaragua. The first section of the bill which names the incorporators was not con cluded when the hour of adjournment arrived. The incorporators proposed rjy tbe uui are U. S. Grant, E. D. Mor gan, H. J. Jewett Howard Potter, William K. Garrison, Frederick Bil lings, Geo. B. Loring. Wm. L. Merry, Wm. B. Franklin, Solon Humphries, Frederick Butterfield, J. Thomas De franco, James It Keene, Richard Ten Broeck, E. F. Beale, Wm. Dennison, Edward C. Anderson, Daniel Ammen, Geo. F. Baker, Alexander Taylor, U. S. Grant, Jr., Wm. H. Barnum, E. F. Biggs, Edward 1L Clymer, A. G. Men- ocal, Charles Dana, Robert Harris, Man ual Candra, Edward T. Smith, Jas. II. Work and S. L. Phelps. The Mil pro vides among other things that the cap ital stock shall consist of not less than 500,000 nor more than 1,000,000 shares of $150 each, which shall in all respects be deemed personal property; that the United States shall exercise such con trol over the canal as is now or may at any time be prescribed by treaty with Nicaragua and shall enjoy its free use for the transportation of troops, muni tions of war and mails, and otherwise in accordance with stipulations in ex isting treaties, and if the United States see fit for national reasons to tempor arlly occupy and manage said canal the rigbt to do so is reserved and secured to the government upon payment to the stockholders of the canal at the rate of 5 per centum annually upon the capital invested together with the necessary expenses for the maintenance of the work. The If aming of Nantucket. Names are important things in this earthly career of ours, and one humor ous correspondent accounts for tlfb name of Nantucket as follows: The oldest inhabitant who owned the group of islands of which this is one. gave them to his daughters ere he died. Rhoda took Rhode Island, Elizabeth took the island since named for her. Martha took and named Martha's Vine yard, and as for the remaining island, Nan-took-it. This interesting legend has not the merit of antiquity, as it can be traced back no further than lb7U. There is another and more beautiful legend, The Indian tradition is that the' Great Spirit was once smoking when He partly filled nis pipe with sand. When the mixed remains - were emptied from the pipe into the sea they formed the island of Nantucket The name is said to be an Indian modifica tion of Nautikon, a name left by the Norsemen who visited it in the eleventh century. The best authority pronoun ces it a corruption of an Indian word meaning "far away". It is called Na- tocko on tbe map of 1630. The agent of the Suez canal telegraphs De Lesseps that he had written to the naval commanders protesting against the action of the British consul at Port Said in preventing vessels from entering the canal as a violation of its neutrality, and declaring that the company will hold the British government responsi ble. The whole staff of the canal re main at their posts. Count Telfener, who married M'si A -la Hungeiford, Mrs. J. W. Ma -kej's bLtrr, is an alert and active iHisiius man. Both his title and ins enormous fortune were won by sur.ccsssful busi ness ventures in Italy. He is now n- tereoted lu American miuea and rail ways, and expects to spend much time in this country. He was a friend of Victor Emmanuel, and has often en tertained King Humbert at his pala tial villa in Rome. Secretary Folger has appointed Rep resentative Crowley, New York; E P. Ellis, Milwaukee, and James G. Hill, Supervising Architect, a commission to decide upon the selection of sites for public buildings at Detroit, Minneapo lis and Denver. A CRABBED CREATURE. Thai nature cares for and entertains ber own has become an estalilihhed fact to all observers. Who does not love the sound of tne usghtly srintuiaunir waves lcaplo from the phosphorescent sea, as bey break aualnht the rocks In tbe Hummer night until Nature herself, weary of the operation, turns the sounding surf towards tne oppposue snore, leaving Stranded some badly-mutilated tnall, which wanders solemnly on. Bohemian fash ion with all its worldly store upon 1U back. On the same beach may be found our crusta cean edible the crab whose chiel apology for exist ing at aU seems to to be lu ability to furnibh a delectable meal to fortunate bipeds. The crab being covered with a hard, im penetrable shell, It is not easy to molest or make Lira afraid; therefore he Wages war in his watery world unceasingly whenonee attacked. Although tiny, he cannot be said to be devoid of understand ing, having ten legs to assist bis locomotion ; this, however, avails him little, for, when conquered, he never turns his back to his enemy, starting Into a bold run. but, likemany politicians during election time, slips off sideways. There eomes a time in the 11 fe of this pugnacious fellow when t he years bring him more bone and muscle than he can dispose of with comfort, and he finds him self in a very tight place: his shoes pinch him and ho begins to realise tbe practicability of ap plying to I'ame Nature for more room or a houe In proportion to bis increasing size. Nature slowly responds to the call; but in her own good time provides a new home, so that the enter- HMng little creature does not wander about lorai-less, but is provided for suitably, as was tbe old sailor, who dropped his rheumatism and crabbednvss w hen he applied the Great German Remedy, Kt. Jacobs Oil. This last, however, may sound rather fishy to the skeptical reader, ami to such we would reply in language too plain to bo misunderstood in words illustrating facts that even the waves of time cannot wash away or scaly epithet affect St. Jacobs Oil to-dny ha rendered tho lives and homes of myriads of sufferers brighter than ever the electric light can. which people pause to admire along the way. htill more happily served than the old sailor was an Invalid, who wrote thus concerning his case : "CROOKED HAERTEL," Accept a thousand thanks for that "golden remedy." I suffered for many years with rheu matic pain in my limWs. My leg were drawn together, and peple called roe "Crooked llaer tel." 1 used'ST.
