Why does my nature fain destroy
The beautiful, tbe rare,
And give my heart one moment's joy
To fade and vanish there.
Yes, tbou sweet violet of the woods,
Thy modest severed flower,
I might quite well have understood
Would wither in an hour.
Thy gentle dew-dipt violet eyes
Peeped out from 'mid tbe fern,
My wanton hand secured the prize
With eager unconcern.
I should have left you to perfume
Tbe woodland's quiet air,
Perchance to cbeer some brow from gloom
Or free some heart from care.
I know I can not well repair
The injury I have dane.
But thee I'll seed to one as lair
As chaste, and yet unwen.
Ob. should tbe fade as in my hand
Thy fragile petals do,
My heart the blight could not withstand,
Twould droop and wither too.

THE EAGLE AND THE PEOPLE.
The attention of tbc Harper Graph
ic, which published several articles
from a patent allairissucd-iu this city,
called tbc ''.New Ucpublic," which
articles were published for the pur
pose of showing the people of Harper
county that the Eagle did not reflect
tbc entire sentiment of Wichita on tho
railroad question, is called to the re
result of the vote of day before yes
terday, not only in the city, but in the
couuty. The Graphic will notice that
notwithstanding the aforesaid sheet's
oppo-ition the C. Wood Davis road
was just as strong before our people
as either of the other, and further,
that tho C.un.K did not then, nor will
it over misrepresent the people ot this

"And the rain came" to our part of
the-20unlry also; it was on the night
of the 1st inst., and "every tinkle on
the shiuglc" found an "echo in the
the heart." come light showers have
fallen since, which proved beneficial in
our gardens, but for wheat and oats,
alas! it is too late. Wheat fields arc
taking on a ripe look, inviting tho
reapers, and oats arc heading on the
shortest possible stems. Cron is look
ing well where it was early planted,
and cultivators are out in force.
Some of our farmers invested con
siderable money in nursery stock this
spring, but I fear the returns realized
will not be great. It is a pity, for
fruits largo and small, and ornamental
trees and 6hrubbery add 60 much to.
the beauty and value of our places.
The mad dog scare is not con
fined to cities, and since a man and
some animals have been bittcii by a
rabid dog, just north of tho Ninnes
cah, your correspondent holds all
canines in greater dread than ever.
"Afraid of a dog?" Yes, indeed, and
always was, that is, if tho auimal were
strange. Our schools arc nearly all
closed, teachers and pupils alike well
pleased to be free to roam as fancy
dictates, where 6teru duly does not
point in an opposite direction. Since
the late rains havo freshened the faco
ot mother earth, it is one of the
reatcst pleasures to canter out in the
early morning when the "dew on the
grass is shining." Mjriads ol liny
blossoms gem the green turf, sonic of
them more beautiful tliau exotics.
There is a good deal of excitement on
the question of bonds, and while

there is occasionally found a man per

road comes near. Mrs. John Boyd,

WHAT HELL IS.
Tho Swedenbcrglan Idea of tho
Place of Everlasting Torment.
NOT VHRV HOPEFUL.
Tho St. Louis Globc-Dcmocrat, in
editorially rcvicViug tbe wheat crop
ami prices ears that the latest crop re
ports arc somewhat more unfavorable
than the previous ones as regards
gprinjj wheat, but tho outlook for
whiter wheat is hopeful, llarvcstiug
has begun m some of the state, in
cluding Missouri, where an unusually
largo yield is certain. As the wheat
crop in Asia has been up to the aver
age, and that of Europe promises to
be fair, the prices for tho American
farmer arc toot likely to be auy higher
this year than they have been for the
pan twelve months,unlc&s a European
war taUes place, of which there is no
immediate prospect. However, thi
appears lo assure cheap bread for the
poor man for the nest year at least.
"What People Do In Hell." a ser
mon b- tho Rev. Jabe Fox, was read
before the Swedeuborgiaus in the
nioruiug service yesterday. Accord
ing to Mr. For, hell is an organized
society, having laws and oilicer, and
divided into separate communities, or
states, as the kingdoms of men iu this
world arc. He says: "And we know
hell must abound with shrewd, e. li
ning, scheming men, who will form
governments for their own uitcrcU
and aggrandizement. Then if
one joins himself at last to some soci
ety ot devils in one ol Hie hells, it is
from choice. And the Lord tiuallv
permits it, because with the character
ho has formed by hiseil life in the
world it is better for such a one to he
with his like. lie would he more mis
erable to live among the aiijjcls. It is
true, the life of an evil spirit in his
own world is, iu comparison with
heaven, most wretched and miserable
ami full oi pains and torments; but it
is the best of which the evil spirits arc
capable. In the truo light of
heaven tho state of tho lost ap
pears as it really is, and thus
it looks just as low and sordid
and dreadlul aud painful aud hopeless
as it really is; aud the evil spirits look
miau, foul, base and deformed as the
truly arc. In hell everyone acts from
the love ot self; aud so everyone an
tagonizes ever' other, and would do
harm rather than good, if an internal
force did not prevent. So hell is gov
erned by force; and evils are violently
repressed. It they were not. society
would bo utterly destroyed. To com
pel unwilling obedience, terrible pnn-i-hments
aro snflicted, and the most
vindictive cruelty is shown. The evil
spirits aro as buy as men iu
this world are, and there Is active so
cial life, and a very ancient aristoc
racy, aud in all this ambitious and
jealousies aud rivalries beyond what
wc have any idea of; and never any
peace, rest aud security. The people
there are tho bad from this world,
with all their evil aggravated aud let
loose, and it is easy to ceo how they
cau niako a perfect hell. Milwaukee

Tho wife of the great railroad mag'
liate is gentle, allable, courteous, re
tirius. &he would not bo called a I
haudsome woman, yet her face is far
more attractive than mam- a bcautr.
she is well educated aud possesses an
air of refinement. She couriucCs all
who couio within the sphero ot her
iniiuence mat tnrougiiiicr rcuriu; na
ture sho ha3 deprived society of an
important ornament. Her inclinations
have made her a devotee to her family;
tlicro is her enjoyment and she cares
little for the pleasures that do not in
some way tcud to bring1 the en
tire family together. She is
the confidant and constant companion
of iter daughter Xeliic, and passes cv
eral hours each day with the three
jouiij: boys, Kdward, Trank and Har
old. She participate in their pleas
ures, and is never so happy as when
planuiii some surprise fur them. Her
son (JiWgc, a young man of twenty
four, counccicd with his father iu

Mrs. (lould wa a Miss Miller, wlto;o
father wa a successful grocer of New
York. She wa brought up in a well
appointed home, ami has been accus
tomed to all that wealth and refine
ment bring from her childhood. Mr.
Gould was a partner of a Mr. Leupp
in the leather business at tbe time he
married Miss Miller, aBd she brought
kin a considerable fortaae.
Ik his careful prepared speech at
.Montgomcrv, Jciterson wavis recog
nized the fact that tbc "lost cause" is
lost forever. He spoke of the people
of their "common country," and ex
horted them to be faithful to their ob
ligations as citizens. In one of the
impul'ivc impromptu bpeeches which
he made later on. he said, as reported,
that "the lost cause is not lot; it will
live again; it ! not dead, but -Iccp-ing."
The Mobile llcgi-tcr says to
this: "To the old confederates who
fought through tho civil war it looks
as if the caiic for which we
fought i pretty thoroughly dead."
And it pertinently "iuquire
what the cause actually wa. If
slavery, no man not even Mr. Davis
wilfdeny that the accursed institu
tion is as dead as the bondage of the
children of Israel under Pharaoh. If
it was the right of secession, and the
arbitratemcut of tho sword did not
settle that, "it so happens," ajsthe
Ilejristcr, "that Alabama has placed in
her constitution, adopted by the Dem
ocratic convention of lb-. a clause de
claring 'hat tncre can tie no bcctssioa
by thu state from the union.' The
Kinie if tiuc of other MJtitheui states,
and, with the reason for de-ir-ing
a separation gone, an attempt
at secession i more likely lo come
from some other quarter of the tiuiou
than from the south, if it shall ever be
thought of again, which is not prob
able. "The north and the entire re
public," says our coternporary, "may
ren satisfied that the south, and the
old confederates especially, regard the
lost cause as tbc right of a state to
secede from the federal government
at pleasure, and they regard that
cause as so very lost and dead that
they have repudiated it ia express
laasuage ia their state constitutioBS."
