THE LAND OF BEGINNING AGAIN.
I WISH that there wore to ne wonderful
place
Called the I-ii.d of Reglnnlng Again.
Where nil our mistakes and all our
heartaches
Knd all of our [xior. selfish grief
Could lie dropped, like a shabby old coat,
at the door
And never put on again.
I wish we could tome on It all unaware.
Like the hunter who tinds a lost trail.
And I wish that the one whom our blind
ness had done
The greatest Injustice of all
Could he at the gates, like an old friend
that waits
For the comrade he's gladdest to hall.
We would find all the things we Intended
to do.
But forgot and remembered too late—
Little praises unspoken, little promises
broken
And all of tho thousand and one
Little duties neglected that might have
perfected
The day for one less fortunate.
It wouldn't be possible not to be kind
In the Land of Beginning Again,
And the ones we misjudged and the ones
whom we grudged
Their moments of victory here
Would find In the grasp of our loving
handclasp
More than penitent lips could explain.
For what had been hardest we'd know
had been best.
And what had seemed loss would be
gain.
For there Isn't a sting that will not take
wing
When we've faced It and laughed it away.
And I think that the laughter Is most
what we're after
In the Land of Beginning Again.
So I wish that there were some wonderful
place
Called the Land of Beginning Again.
Where all our mistakes and all our heart
aches
And all of our poor, selfish grief
Could be dropped, like a shabby old coat,
at the door
And never put on again.

SONQ.
Oh, what comes over the sea.
Shoals and quicksand past?
And what comes home to me.
Sailing slow, sailing fast?
A wind comes over the sea
With a moan In Its blast.
But nothing comes home to me.
Sailing slow, sailing fast
Let me be. let me be.
For my lot Is cast
Land or sea. all's one to me.
And sail It slow or fast.

THE WISDOM OF YOUTH.
SHE has only turned eighteen.
Not a tear her cheek has stained.
By no sad and tragic scene
Has her happy heart been pained.
But she'll tell you what to do
In the heat and din of strife
Just as though she ceally knew
All there is to know of life.
She has studied Greek and French.
She has read philosophy.
But her heart has known no wrench
Due to grief or misery.
So she laughs our woes away.
And she tells us what to do
With our troubles every day
Just as though she really knew.
She has only turned eighteen.
She has merely sipped the swaet
Of life's nectar and has been
Where the clover kissed her feet.
And so we of wrinkled brow
And of battered heart just smile
When our daughter tells us how
To be happy all tho while.
And we pray from day to day
That she'll never know tho rough
Of life's sometimes troubled way
Or complain of Its rebuff.
And we pray she'll never meet
With the heartache of the strife.
In the sunshine and the sweet
May she read her book of life.
—Detroit Free Press.
LIFE.
(T7E live In deeds, not years; in thoughts.

In feelings, not in figures on a dial.

Life's but a means unto an end, that end
Beginning, mean and end to all things-
God.

picturing and printing a lot of gush,
rant and rot, as to what vaudeville

stage perhaps one season) eat. wear,
and do. While about six lines suf

Harry Ferguson, the recently re
called preacher-Mayor of Hoquiam,
gained some notoriety when he was
Mayor by declaring in a sermon de
livered in Aberdeen that he had
been called by the Lord to save Ho
quiam from sin.
Instead of saving Hoquiam from
sin, he (judging by the majority of
votes cast for his recall by the citi
zens of Hocjuiam) only encouraged
and created more sin. If encourag
ing wage-earners to strike, causing
business stagnation; fermenting dis
sension, confusion; making old-time
friends enemies, isn't as sinful and
moro so, than the so-called sins of
those who reside in a restricted dis
trict (for the scarlet woman is con
sidered dead as far as society is con
cerned, though not by Him whom
such sky pilots as Harry Fergusons
profess to serve) I should like to learn
why.
The voters of Hoquiam, in my
individual opinion, covered them
selves with manhood, self-respect,
honor and horse-sense, so to speak,
by establishing peace and content
ment from now on in Hoquiam, by
retiring into political oblivion, at
least, its one-time preacher-Mayor,
Harry Ferguson.

fire, and run up Old Glory.

June.
June is one month in the year when
I am really glad to know that I am
fast coming to that age where the
music of that poem which I read
a long, long time ago when I didn't
understand as much as I do now
about life and things, the one that
reads " the last leaf upon the tree,"
comes home to me like the crooning
of a mother to her slumbering babe.
It strikes me that way, because 1 am
fast reaching that stage in life when
the call of death will come as a song.
But June is the time when I feel it
most and I reckon it must be because
June is the month for brides and
roses, two of the world's fairest cre
ations. The bursting of hud into
bloom, that's it, whether it is the
rose or the bride. It's the begin
ning of life for them both, and I am,
as I have said, at the stage where I
can look upon the birth of both with
a gentle smile and say: "It is well."
What a mystery there is in store
for these blossoms!
What a wonderful labyrinth is
open to them, and I, who have suc
cessfully followed the clue and met
Minatour of life's vagaries and de
stroyed it. look with keen pleasure
upon the wondrous gaze of wide eyes,
as the young flower cpens its petals
and gazes about in surprise and
wonderment. Once when I was
younger, I couldn't do that; I was
too busy finding my own way through
the winding path, unlocking the
door, inspired with curiosity at what
I might find behind it, and often

meeting with disappointment and
tears, but after passing through the
chamber of sorrow, I have found the
garden of life, the fountain of con
tentment ever flowing, and the sun
shine of peace enveloping me in its
soft rays. And so having found my
happiness and having realized my
self the pleasure of that mysterious
search, I can appreciate and enj«g
the looking on with kindly eyes the
beginning of the search of others.
I remember r.s well as yesterday
when I, too, with my life-long coin
panion started hand-in-hand along
the brook of life, and many and hard
were the obstacles in our way, but
we persevered and succeeded and
crossed them all in safety. But we
were fortunate; we both started on
the same side of the brook. That is
the secret of it all, and Lffe's garden
er of each of these tender blossoms
would have that same soft, wide-won
dering expression, though strength
ened and perfected, in the golden
autumn of life; he must be tender
and give it the best care, for it is a
fragile plant, and coarse handling
soon robs it of its attraction. And
if they would both, when they reach
the golden age, enjoy each June as
they did the first, recalling in the
beginning of others what their be
ginning was, let them both start on
the same side of the riverltt, and un
der the circumstances, no matter how
choice the fruit on the other side
may be, let neither of them cross the
stream without the other. I remark
upon the golden antumn and harmon
ize it with the beginning of summer,
because I have found that in autumn
we find the days that most resemble
spring the most joyous of the autumn
and in the autumn of life the spring
months are equal sources of pleasure.
An English paper tells this story
about Oliver Wendell Holmes. When
in England in 1886 he was at a great
reception in London. He oat quietly
in a corner, feeling a little faint, and
observing refreshments in the dis
tance, he turned to an elderly man,
whom he supposed to be a butler or
something of that kind, and asked
for a bottle of soda water. The sup
posed servant brought the soda with
great alacrity and remarked: "lam
very glad to meet you. Dr. Holmes.
I aui Prince Christian."
The autocrat of the breakfast table
was naturally taken aback, but quiet
ly recovered himself and said: Dear
me, I have not had much acquaint
ance with princes —at least not
enough to distinguish them from
waiters at a glance."
After that the genial poet soon be
canio the center of a circle of royal
people, whom he entertained for
hours.
Thunderbolts are not completely
understood. They are lightning
phenomena, spherical or ball light
ning. They are gaseous beyond
doubt, for when they expode with
great violence, no trace of matter can
be discovered. Their color is bluish,
and they appear at once, when at all,
after terrific flashes of lightning of
the darting or filamentary type.
Sometimes the luminous balls fall
slowly, but do not usually strike the
earth, but move horizontally as if sup
ported by the electrical field of force
of the earth. When they explode a
strong wave moves in air in all direc
tions, and a penetrating odor of ozone
fills the adjacent space. The energy
of explosion is supposed to be utilized
in the formation of oxygen into the
ozone in the lightning. Knowledge
of the cause and real nature of thun
derbolts is meager. They are more
plentiful at sea than over land.
Upton Sinclair, who is au advocate
oi divorce when married people are
unhappy, tells this story:
A woman in one of the large cities
of this country was one day per
suaded to go to a spiritualistic se
ance in order to hold converse with
her dead husband.
"My dear George," said the widow,
in tears, " are you happy where you
are?"
"Happier than I was on Earth
with you," George answered, with
alacrity.
This was something of a poser, and
the widow paused to decide what she
should ask next.
" What is it like in Heaven, dear
George?" she finally asked.
"Heaven!" exclaimed George, "I'm
not in Heaven."

A WONDERFUL BRIDGE.
The Largest Suspension Bridge in the
World.
With the passage of a bill by the
United States Senate granting Allen
O. Rush, a Los Angeles engineer, a
right-of-way across Goat Island and
permission to utilize a portion of
land in the Presidio reservation, the
Jtrst tangible step was made toward
the execution of plans for spanning
San Francisco bay with a $2(5,000,099
suspension bridge to be the longest
in the world.
If the House likewise approves the
bill, and it becomes a law. Rush will
immediately lay before the munici
palities of San Francisco and Oakland
his proposition for financing the en
terprise as outlined to and endorsed
by the leading commercial bodies of
the bay cities.
This provides for the organization
of a joint corporation to operate and
control the property—San Francisco,
Oakland and Rush to own one-third
each.
Rush's plans for the construction
of tho bridge provide for issurance of
twenty-year bonds with the fran
chises, right-of-way and other privi
leges as collateral. He says he has
assurances from two European finan
cial syndicates that they will take
up the entire issue.
The bridge as planned will be nine
and a half miles in length. The bay
will be crossed from Lombard
street, near the base of Telegraph
Hill, to the north side of Goat Island
which will be traversed and thence
to the flats near Emeryville. The
bridge will be suspended 150 feet
above the water level, thus admit
ting vessels without interruption of
trafiic. To make the approaches a
moderate grade, the bridge will, it is
planned, be extended over Lombard
street to Van Ness avenue where the
passenger terminal is proposed to
be erected, and thence on to the
Presidio where the freight terminals
are planned, permission for which
was given by the Senate.
On the Oakland side it is proposed
to make the terminus near the race
track.
The plans provide for four tracks
for steam railway purposes, four
tracks for electric traction cars, two
automobile and vehicle ways and pe
destrian walks and observation paths
on either side of the structure. The
railway tracks will be operated un
der a common user plan, the revenue
from the bridge being derived from
a fixed toll for vehicles. Whether a
toll will be levied against pedestrians
is a detail not yet decided.
Tho engineering feature of the
bridge would be the construction of
the eight piers from which the sec
tions, each 2,230 feet long, would be
suspended.
Rush has invented a method which
he says is patented and declared feas
ible by eminent engineers. This is
to build steel and concrete caissons
in a drydock each measuring approx
imately 325 by 225 at the base and
tapering upward to a height of 150
feet. When completed each would
weigh 90,000 tons.
The next step, according to Rush's
plans, would be to fill and seal a
series of twelve steel tubes each 32
inches is diameter with compressed
air. This he figures, would give the
hollow pier or caisson a buoyancy of
110,000 tons. The plan is then to
tow them to position and settle them
in the mud by allowing the com-
V#kssed air to escape. The weight
of the caisson will plunge it deep in
the mud and the water and mud will
be pumped out, allowing the work
ers to excavate down to bedrock,
which is estimated to be about 140
feet below the surface of the water.
After bedrock had been reached the
caissons will be fillded and will form
a pier rigid enough to stand any dis
turbance.
The superstructure will be built
upon ten flexible steel cables each
twenty inches in diameter, it is
planned.
He has devoted three years to the
furtherance of his enterprise. He
has appeared before the Chamber of
Commerce of San Francisco, the
Chamber of Commerce of Berkeley,
the Merchants' Exchange of Oakland,
the Realty Associations of Richmond
and of Oakland and outlines his prop
osition, he says, and received the un
qualified indorsement of all these
bodies.
Rush is extremely pleased that the
Senate acted favorably on the bill,
giving him the concessions which
have been denied others. The bill
was introduced by Senator Works.
"I have received assurances that
the House of Representatives will
also approve the bill granting me the
necessary right of way," says Rush.
" If the House acts favorably on it
and the President concurs, the plans
will as soon as possible he laid olTiei-
ally before the Governments of the
two cities in concrete form. There is
a necessity for such a bridge, the
plans are feasible and the leading
commercial bodies have given them
their approval.
Rush cstim ites the daily ferry fares
at $70,009, and the yearly freight re
ceipts of the ferries at $11,030,000-

I.augh, and the world laughs with you.
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old F.arth
Must borrow its mirth ;
It has troubles enough of its own.
Sins?, and the hills will answer,
Sigh, it is lost on the air;
The echoes bound
To a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.
Rejoice, and men will seek you,
Grieve, and they turn and go;
They want full measure
Of all your pleasure,
But they do not want your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad. and you lose them all;
There is none to decline
Your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life's gall.
Feast, and your halls are crowded,
Fast, anil the world goes by;
Succeed and give
And it helps you live,
But it cannot help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a long and lordly train;
But one by one
We must all tile on
Through the narrow aisles of pain.
