Into the light Of to© bloat— On! of the day very dreary. Out of the world of the weary, Into the rapture of rest. Out of to-day’s sin and sorrow, Into a blissful4.0-morrow, Into a land without, gloom; Out of a land filled with sighing— Land of the dead and the dying Into a land without tomb. Out. of a land of commotion. Tempest-swept a* the mad ocean, Dire with the wreck drifting o’er, Into a land calm and quiet; Never a storm cometh nigh it— Never a wreck on its shore. Out of the land in whose bowers J’crisb and fade all the flowers— Out of the land of decay— Into the Kdeu where fairest Of flowers—and sweetest and rarest— Never shall wither away, Out of the world of the wailing. Thronged with anguish and ailing, Out of the world of the sad, Into the world that rejoice*— World of bright visions and voices— Into the world of the glad. Out of a life ever loncful. Out of a land ever mournful, Where in bleak exile we roam— Into a joy-land above us— Where there’s a Father to love ns— Into “Our home, sweet, sweet home.” Written for the Democrat.] Winter Amusements. Poor old Winter is fast draw ing his last breath;—and how many mourners has he? Alas I rear but few. But I love the grim aid months. Yes, yes, winter has its enjoyments, its entertainmcnts) and its pleasures, as well as its cold, storm, ice, and unbearable long nights. Then is the time for those good, old fashioned eveuing visits. Not for a little fashionable skip-in and skip-out sort of a call, such as we are accustomed to now-a days, that begin with a “how do ye do, dear. Such an age since I've seen jour dear face!”—when you know positively that you met her “face to face” on the street the day before;—and end with a •do call again soon. 1 am aver delighted to sec you.” And then, before you have hardly .clos ed the street door, conies such ex pressions as “I do wish that wo man would stay at btimvs I never * * , think of snatching a quiet hour to read, but in she comes, with her never-ending gossip.” But a real sit-down-talk, running over, in a single sitting, half the inci dents of ones life. How it revives one to live over again those sacred items of past years. Winter brings us lectures, public speeches of all kinds, dancing parties, for those who love to “tip the light fantastic toe,” long sermons at church for the more sober minds. It has also its out dixir amusements. Ask the mer ry skaters as they skim over the clear sparkling ice, or the wooing lover, as he takes his affianced to follow the merry tinkling sleigh bells, snugly tucked in their warm robes, as they bound over the clean scope of country, away from the noise and din of the busy bustling city; or that big schoolboy, as he even throws aside his coat, in the exe. ss of his eagerness to make a “whopping big” snow ball to give the teacher a “stunner” as lie passes; or that little boy, who even cried on the road to school as he makes his spendid snow ea nal, or slides down that nice long hill on his line new sled (for the sole purpose ot drawing it up agafn,) that lie leased ‘‘papa"’ or “inamina” about, a fortnight past. —Ask these if winter is dull or dreaiy. 1 think they will ail agree with me, that it is just the time for amusement. And then there is reading, that most splen did of all splendid amusements for those splendid long evenings. Oh, what a blessing! And how thankful we should be that we are enabled to study and learn the thoughts of others through the me dium of books and papers. I'.U'I.INK. • Russellville, March 22, 1875. —— - •'T*. - - — Written for the Okmockat.] Better Times not far off. Nokristowx, Ark., ) March 22d 1875.j Mn. Editor: 1 am not one of those beings who believe in su perstitious old graveyard ghost stories, and many traditional signs and wonders that have been hand ed down to us from our grand fathers and grandmother*,1 as cer tain fore-runners of some future event. But 1 am a firm believer in signs, notwithstanding, hut tliev must be bused upon action, and with this theory in view, 1 mil of the opinion that better times are not far off; and why? Because the sign of better times is based upon substantial visible action on the part of the farmers at this time. They are waking up from their former lethargy to a realign tion of the great truth that they, and they alone, of all professions, have it in their power (with the help of Providence) to make times better, and they are going to do it; and how are they going to do it? lty making their farms all self sustaining and having a sur plus of everything raised on the farm to sell. But says objector, who are they going to sell all this surplus to; well r.ir, did it ever occur to you that over half the population of every country, on an average, follows other professions, and yet every one, from the least to the greatest, must he supplied by the farmer. Why sir, “The farmer’s the chief of the nation.’’ But wi at’s the sign of better times in Pope county? It is this, and is based on action. The farmers sowed more wheat last fall, more oats in Fcb’y, than they ever have done heretofore; and now the cry with them is, where can I get grass-seed? The cars are bringing grass seed, the steamboats are bringing grass seed; our farmers are all preparing some select spot for to sow their grass on. They are going to sell you eggs, butter, onions, tomatoes, beans, peas, melons, squashes, cucumbers, po tatoes, wheat, oats, corn, hay, and not so much cotton; they are going to pay cash for all they buy, and expect cash for all they sell. Then we will have plenty of money and better times, which is not far off in the future. Yours Truly, Millet Seed.

Norristown, March 20, 1875. Mr. Editor:-—On last S-y about 12 o’clock, noon, the trim little steamer Ben Wood, partly on a pleasure trip and partly on the hunt of wood, landed here by request, and took on your corres pondent and several others of this place, and then “lit out” for up the river, shoving an immense, ug ly barge ahead. We glided up the river like a greased eel for about five miles, when we discovered a beautiful, clear little river, mak ing in on the right. Capt. Joe immediately turned the wheel to the right, and ill five minutes more we went steaming up Illi nois Bayou. We went tip as far as Horse Shoe bend, where the barge was left for wood: U>e steamer was then turned round, and we run back to the mouth in a short time; discovering the truth, that Illinois Bayou is a river, navigable for steamboats, (if not too large). But, horror of horrors, when we came to the mouth a fearful storm was just ahead, and Capt. Joe very wisely tied up. In about ail hour it calm ed down a little, Capt. Joe turned loose, put her in the Arkansas riv er, and in twenty-five minutes, I was standing on the bank here, watching a streak of smoke go to Dardanelle. Yours, Miluet Seed. DIED.
