Tilt: VOICE OF ACTl'My.
The maple fades; the ash tree stands and
quivers;
• Across the path the spider spins his bars
For lassie’' face, whose step among the leaves
Sounds like an army’s in the licld of Mars.
II.
f The grass grows brown ; the rose's breath Is lost;
The bleeding grapes migathcred tempt the
bee;
While katydid, pale prophet of the frost.
Chant.' her last signal from the locust tree.
III.
In circle swift around the fields doth sail
The keen-eyed hawk, with under-wing of
white;
And from tlie stubble all the quivering quail
Dart for the thicket with a humming flight.
IV.
The mute gray squirrel, sobered with the year.
Holds the ripe nut in lithe uplifted paws;
And reynard -its. profound philosopher,
Beside his den and meditates on cause.
V.
Apollo still is cruel us of old :
The frightened Daphne through the pastures
skips;
: The birds tly south ; the woods in red mid gold
Put on t lie splendors of apocalypse.
VI.
The evening sinks; the boys returning swing
The haslet luden with the pawpaw’s fruit;
While through the shadows flaps the rapid
wing
Of whip-poor-will whose monologue is untie.
VII.
The dun October’s half-orbed moon descend'
The sloping Zodiac ; the white clouds fly
On swifter wing than albatross unbends,
And red Orion climbs the eastern sky.
VIII. *
And tints by day and thus by night I trace
The dying glories of the autumn time;
Against the snow I set a stony face,
And fling behind this withered leaf of rhyme.

A Style of OourUhiy That in I 'tah i* Thought
jRomniitic.
The courtships of the saint* are not al
ways romantic alburn. Dr. Sharpe of this
city has four wives, and if he lias go *d lin k
he will have another before long. During
the last few weeks l.e has had a courtship
on hand which has given him great trouble,
lie employed a girl named Mary White as
a servant in one of his families. Mary was
a fresh, plump, rosy cheeked young Mormon.
Her father was a saint with two wives.—
Mary was the daughter of wife No. 1. W ife
No. 2 was gay and giddy, and when Dr.
Sharpe carried Mary hack and forth be
tween her father’s home and the place of
her service, he saw and bewitched her as
White said. Altera while Sharp enticed
No. 2 away from lipr husband, and then
White got an idea that the doctor had be
witched him also. Another saint came along
who was in the soothsaying business, and
lie told White lie had something that was
good for him, hut that it would coat money.
The price was agreed upon. \\ bite bought
the charm, worked it, and the evil spirit ot
Sharp was exorcised. .lust as \\ bite was
beginning to feel at case onco more, Sharp
drove up with Mary And asked permission
to make her Mrs. Sharpe No. To this
the old people objected, tor tin*)' believed he
was possessed of the devil,and they thought
he did not support his other wives any too
well. Wln-n they pave Sharp the reasons
for their refu-al he was furious, and he took
an oath in their presence that he would
have Mary.
In the course of time 111 convinced the
old man that it had been ordained from all
time that Mary should become his wife;
hut the old lady said that the doctor had
hoodooed her husband once more, and she
refused to assent to the union. Then Sharp
had a vision or two which he related to Mrs.
White. She was still inexorable. Two or
three days later lie had a revclatiou that it
would he very acceptable to the Lord to
have Mary become his wife. It had no ef
fect on her mother. Then Sharp dreamed
dreams of mighty import every night, heard
tremendous rumblings in the skies, saw a
great light, and read many commands writ
ten on the fleeting clouds, all to the effect
that Mary was his and his only. The old
lady’s teeth were set tight.
Taking a new tack, the doctor then threat
ened to summon Mrs. White heiiorc the high
council. She told him the Sanhedrim <*f
the saints had no terrors for her. Then he
appealed to the bi«hop of that ward and
finding him dull of comprehension, he went
before the council with his grievance.
Here he found sympathetic listeners. The
old bishop was promptly removed and a
new one who believes in marrying off the
young women, was appointed. Sharp* is
on good term* with the ecclesiastic, and
considers hiinsvlfus good ns married already.
Mary is now at school at Provo, and Sharp
has gone after her. The new Bishop is
wrestling with her mother, who now sees
the futility of further resistance, and who
will, in a few days, it is understood, formal
ly consent to the union. In Mormon socie
ty this is considered a very romantic court
ship. All Muruion love stories begin and
end something like the above.
Since the reopeniogof the crusade against
the Mormons the elder- of the Church have
decided *hat the saints must be urged to a
dopt more generally the polygamous rela
tion. Many good Mormons have never in
dulged in that feature of the faith, but
w ith the powers that be it is considered of
vital importance. At the last meeting of
the priesthood the women were sent home
alone, and after they had disappeared the
saints not in polygamy were asked to retire.
When they had gone Cannon and others of
the chief priests announced that the time
had come when Mormonism must put on a
hold front and practice all that if preached.
The priests and others in authority who had
but one wife mu^t give wav to bettor men
who had two, six, or ten wives. Men who
did not live up to their religion were un
worthy of positions of honor under it. This
sentiment was a.-.-*nted to with rapturous
applause by all present. The weeding out
of the half-hearted saints will begin at once.
This action has been brewing for a long
time. A good many very faithful Mormon#
deterred by poverty, respect for the feelings
of their first wives, and by fear of Govern
ment precautions, have not “lived up to
their religion''in the pa-t. All such will
be tolerated hereafter, but they cannot hope
to rise to places of honor in the church.
Moat of the big polygamists, of course,
arc old men. One young fellow, named
Rudgcr Clawson, a son ol Bishop ( law son,
now about twenty-one year* of age, inspired
by the belief of the ciders that j*olygamy
should be more general, has already two
wives, and ^looking around for more. Two
years ago he married Florence A. Din woody,
and one year later he was joined to Lydia
ripencer. Both are young women, brought
lip under the teachings ol Mormonis®, and
both aro seemingly very much attached tc
their young lord. The conduct of this young
fellow in taking two wives almost before hr
w as out of school so worked up the Gentile*
and the Federal officials litre that they de
termined to make an example of him, il
possible. Step by step they proceeded on
liis trial, gathering the needful evidence,
until only the testimony of the second wifi
was w anting. This cost them many a chasr
and numerous long vigils. A* soon as
young Clawson and his bride* discovereil
that the officer* were after them, they broki
up housekeeping and the young womei
went into retirement. Several times the
officers got on their track, out at the la
iuomeut lost it. Finally by a clever ru.-e
rooy were caugni jii too oacx yaru ni n
dwelling-house w.here they had barn hiding
and the writ was served on theui. They
were taken at once b<;ftyf the fjrnnd jury,
and they freely admitted all the facts in th#
case. When the indictment was returned,
Olawaon was arrested end held in W/WVl
hail. It is beleived that he «*jn In* convict
ed, and that he will be sente yeera older be
fore he gets a chance to take a third wife.
The prompt action taken in hia ca.*e has
been a damper on the ardent spirit*, ef
many other youthful Mormena who were
contemplating polygamy.—A’. T. torn.
