VANISHKU HOV All the Year Round Where are Ahey gone, those dear dead' days. Those sweet past days of long ago. Whose ghosts go floating to and fro When the evening leads as through her mase ? Where are they gone ? Ah ! who can toll? Who weave once more that long passed spell T They did exist when we were voung, We met our life with strength and trust. We deemed all things were pnre and just. Nor knew life had a double tongue. We lightly saiiK a happy snng, Nor dreamed our wsy could e'er be wrong". And then all changed ; as life went by, The friend deceived, or bitter death Smiled ss he drank our desr one's breath And would not let us also die.

We once had friends death h id not t t en And Mowers and songs that could not last Were ours in that most blessed time, When earth seemed heaven's enchanted clime. And so I think when lights burn low A ml all the house is fast asleep, From out a silence vast and deep Those dear dead days we worshipped so, Breathe on us froir their hidden store Their long-lost peace, their faith onco more. God keep these dear old times; ah me! Beyond our vision they may rest Till on some perfect day and blest Once more those dear dead days will bo. for deatii, who took ail, may restore The past we loved, to us ouce more.

Supervisory Legislation in Kansas Previous to the nomination of a can didate for Speaker in the caucus of the Republican members of the Kansas leg islation, the following resolution was adopted as the sense of the members, and to which the nominee is fully pledged We, the Republican members of the incoming legislature, now in CAUCUS assembled, recognizing the justice of the demand that the relations between the people and common carriers be distinctly defined by statutory law.and that no feel ing of uncertainty may be entertained by any jierson present, and to tho end that harmony may prevail in our midst, therefore, resolved that recognizing the subject of railroad legislation as one of tho most important to be presented at the session of the Legislature, and believ ing that our Constitution demands at our hands the passage of a fair and equitable law regulating freight and fare, we hereby affirm individually and col lectively, that we will support no man for speaker who does not give to this caucus satisfactory assurance that he will no frame the Committee on Railroads as will give the advocates of railroad legislation a full majority of said committee. In the course of an address in New Orleans on Prisons and Asylums, the Rev. Dr. Hugh Miller Thompson, uttered these words of truth, and we may add, of warning: The Duke of Wellington said there was nothing more terrible than a great victory, except a great defeat. Ihe path of civiliza tion is strewn with the wounded mid Scad. Kverysm I of a man is at the expense of a victim. Civilisation is based on a wolf theory of life. Business is conducted on that principle It is on this theory that Wall street and Carondelct street exist; that most people arc doing their business. It is get all yen can honestly ; grab all your hands can lay hold of. Your neighbor has grabbed iu bis turn and got all he could. The man that grabs the most is the most honorable man. This is not altogether to be condemned. It opens up avenues of advancement for men in the world. It is a very rough sort of a plan, and no where does it come out in all its harshness as in this country. We have no hereditary wealth. Krery man's wealth can be counted in terms of so many scalps which he has taken in the strife. When one goes to the highest rank of rich men, say a man like old Vanderbilt, he has a hundred million soalps. When you go to a man like that and ask for money on the Christian idea that he holds it in trust from God, he laughs at yon and you can't get into bis head that wealth is a responsibility, or that a man in the United States should not do with his money just as he chooses. The consequence is that the possession of wealth in tins conn try is demoralizing, not only to the men who own it, but to everybody. Why the man who steals $r00 should be sent to the peni tentiary, and he who steals $100,000 to Con gress, the victim can't understand. Or why the man win steals enough to support his family for weeks is branded as a felon, and the man who has stolen enough to build a house on rifth Avenue is held in great honor, and ail tho military companies turn out at his funeral. The unfortunate gam bler is taken up, aud his occupation con sidered disgraceful. If he buys or sells cot ton or pork on a future market, he is a legit imat merchant, and modern philosophy condemed all efforts to reform criminals. They are morally diseased, and have fallen out of the tanks let them go. Tho fittest will survive. The Coming Man. Cincinnati Enquirer. As at present outlined against the po litical sky, Hod.
