DON'T LET THE SONG Don't let the song go out of your Hie ; Though it chance sometimes to flow In a minor strain, it will blend again With tho major tone, you know. What though shadows rise to obsoure life's skies, And hide for a time the sun; They sooner will lift and reveal the rift, Ii you let the melody run. Don't let tho song go out of your lifo; Though your voice may have lost its trill. Though the tremulous note should die in v the throat. Let it sing in your spirit still. There is never a pain that hides not some gain, And never a onp of rue 80 bitter to sup but what ia the cup Lurks a measure of swee'tness too. I Honore The strong snnshine which poured through the skylight of the big studio was tempered and diffused by a white muslin screen painted with blue drag ons, while tall vases, plaster bas re liefs, bits of odd tapestry, a palm tree or two, a brass tea urn and a luxuri ous divan with pillows three deep gave the room an air at once artistic and feminine. Five young women were sitting or standing at the easels, some flourishing charcoal sticks, others with paillettes on their thumbs, all in tent on mastering the difficulties of perspective "values" or "planes," while a sixth, with her hair nnbound and wearing a flowing red robe, rep resented their idea of a Moorish hero ine. Outside the buzz and roar of New York throbbed on the afternoon air, elevated . trams shrieked and whizzed by, street calls rose and fell, and a hurdy gurdy on the next corner ground out a once |)opular tune, but no one noticed these noises any more than the country plowboy notices the wind sighing all day through the pines on the hill "Time to rest, Nora," announced Miss Haviland, and while the wor shippers of art relaxed their tired muscles and exchanged theories, praise and criiicism with the frankness of the cult, Honora also stepped down and took a curious look at the semi circle of more or less realistic like nesses. "What she saw was a young, dark haired woman with wistful gray eyes, hands clasped before her and a sad an<" almost careworn expression. This Moorish girl was clearly a cap tive, pining for home, and, uncon sciously, a flash of her old spirit came back into Honora's face. "Goodness, do I look like that?" she thought, slightly straightening herself. "Dick, dear Dick ! "What would you say if you knew.? " -- "?You peso very well ; "you're' done it before, no doubt," observed one of the girls in a tone'of serene patron age, but Miss Haviland broke in kind ly, before Honora had time to reply : "Oh, no," she said, "Nora isn't a regular model. She just came to obligo us, d?dn't yon, Nora ? " "Pose ! " cried Grace Hunt in a clear, high voice, consulting her watch ; the captive's dimple disap peared ; she hastily resumed her sta tion and attitude, and the sorrowful look again crept over her face. The young ladies returned to their stools, and for some moments, nothing wns heard but the squeaking of charcoal and the scraping of paillette knives. " The line of the neck is good, but she's distinctly too thin, and her arms are unsatisfactory," deslared Mrs. Tremaine, selecting a flat brush and squeezing some raw sienna out of a tube. She was a young widow, pa tronized the apartment and spoke ex actly as if the girl had been a iay fig ure or a block of wood. "Your nose is too long and you are an ill mannered iceberg also," thought Honora, vindictively, with such a rush of blood to her cheeks that severely heightened the tint of their portraits with a touch of rose-madder. Honora went home that night with 02 in her pocket and insulted pride in her heart. Home for her now was a mere closet under the roof of a neigh boring apartment house. "Who is she, nu_ ray?" asked Gra.e, carelessly, as the friends com pared canvases after the model's de parture. "She has a stunning head of hair. You say she is not a profes sional ? " "Oh, no; she's a girl who has done plain sewing for Mrs. Lawrence, on the fifth floor. I happened to see her there and thought she looked paint able. She needed the money, I guess, by the look of her hollow eyes," an swered MisB Haviland, half remorse fully. A month passed after the pictures were finished, and the fair students of the Iverness did not see Honora - never thought of her. Early one January morning, however, the pri vate bell rang and Elizabeth went to the door. "Why, how do you do-ah-Katy, no, Nota, isn't it?" she Baid, wi+h her kindly smile. "So you want-to pose for ns again, do yon ? But you look Lhin. Have you been ill ? " "No, thank you ; Fm quite well. I wonld rather not pose, but I thought you might hare some sewing for me - possibly - one of you ladies," stam mered Honors. "Well, sit down and I'll speak to *.heothers." The girl sank into a chair in the dark little corridor, for ber limbs trembled under her. Miss Haviland, when she came back, ap peared somewhat at a loss for the right word herself. "We don't seem to have much in the way of sewing," she began, but I suspect that Providence may have sent you to our relief, after all. You know four of us girls-the four that you saw-live here with Mrs. Tre maine in a suite of rowms, and we've been houp .?keeping by turns, getting onr breakfast and lunch and taking dinner at the cafe. But we are ali tired of the arrangement, and we've been thinking if we could get some nice"-Miss Haviland hesitated - " refined young woman to cook the meals and keep everything comfort able, it wonld be a good idea all ronnd. Can you cook ? " "les." Honora's tongue really wouldn't say ma'am, so she made it "Miss Haviland " instead. " Then what do yon say to trying it ? We put oat the laundry work, so it wonld bo.easy housekeeping, ** sud CO OUT OF YOUR LIFE, Don't let the song go out of four Hfo; Ah! it never would need to go, Ii with thought more true and a brooder view We looked at this life below. Oh, why should we moan that life's spring time has flown, Or sigh for the lair summer time? The autumn bath days Ulled with paeans of praise. And the winter hath bells that chimo, Don't lot the song go out or your life; Let it ring in tho soul whilo here, And when you go heneo it shall lollow you thence And sing on in another sphere. Then do not despond and say that the fond, Sweet songs of your life have flown, For if evor you knew a song that was true, Its music is still your own. -Kate B. Stiles, in Boston Transcript the young artist went on to speak of wages and the usual "Saturday after noons." The candidate asked for an hour to cousider the matter. She walked np to the park and sat down on one of the wooden benches near the Fifty ninth street entrance. Honora thought how she had come to the city only four months ago, fired with the dreams of a larger life, and utterly ig norant of its difficulties, disappoint ments and perils. She thought of the brave start she had made, her con fident courage and high hopes, and the succeeding bitter discourage ments, repulses aud failures. Peli quagamas, Me., was the melodious name of her birthplace ; she shut her eyes and saw the prim village street, her old aunt's noat cottage, and her self, a restless, impetuous girl, grow iug up under the good spinster's wing, like an enterprising hawk under the wing of a well disposed hen. Six months ago she had offered a tale to a city newspaper, and all her troubles dated from that day, for it was promptly accopted,and the check which came back seemed to open out a dazzling prospect of wealth, fame and a "career." One or two later ventures proved equally fortunate, and then nothing would do but go to New ?ork and try her fortnne. Of course her elders remonstrated, but Honora's strong will and abundant relish ?or adventure carried tho day. Dick stormed, protested and implored - but what was a six-room cottage, even with Dick, to a girl stage Btruck for the triumphs of vorld theatre ? Of the succeeding months Honora did not like to think-their pitiless lessons were, still gall, to her spirit Enough to say that she bad left the expensive boarding house, and, too proud to confess her straits : qr ask help 'from''"home,' taken the poorest of lodgings. Even so, with a needle instead of a pen in her hand, the struggle was too hard, the battle was against her. . At this point in her meditations Honora jumped up and said to her self, resolutely : "lil do it ! It's betler than starv ing, better than posing and bettor than destroying my eves and ruining my temper by sewing 14 hours a day. I'll let them call mo Nora aud think it's me Oirish name," she declared, under her breath, "and lil give them some first rate Yankee cooking and go to the free lectures nud concerts and the museums, so that my time won't be all wasted. I'll take np my de spised diary again, and when I get home in June lil make a clean breast to D-ick." "Nora," said Mrs. Tremaine one May morning, shaking out the folds of her gown, "I expect a gentleman from Philadelphia t inner tonight, so lay an additional plate and have something a little extra, will you, and pretty flowers?" for "Elizabeth's pro tegee " was trusted now even to choose the bouquets. " He's the edi tor of 'Pettingill's,'" she said, turn ing to Grace. "A remarkable man! " Nora's heart gave a little flutter, but it died out immediately. The gentleman duly arrived, and between the ice and coffee he observed to his hostess: "Cousin Laura, I came to tovn today partly to see one of our contributors. Last winter a manu script reached th* oflice which struck ns all as something quite extraordin ary. It was in the form of a diary, purporting to have been found in the room of au unknown girl who lost her reason from sheer starvation in a well-to-do quarter of Gotham. She is a Down East girl, with literary ambi tions, and in her loneliness keeps one of those voluminess journals that no one really writes nowadays with won derful freshness and country wit. It might have been written .for her mother's eyes, or a lover's, perhaps ; it reveals her follies and her virtues both with such perfect spontaneous ness. When literature fails her she tries sewing, and even posing for art students, and she hits off the fine ladies and sisters of your craft with a most delicious mixture of satire and enviousness. But through it all runs the tragic sense of the rushing power of her environment, closing upon her like the remorseless jaws of a trap. The last four entries describe her sen sations on four successive days with out food, after a graud dame fails to pay her for the work she has done, and it breaks off with the first inco herent ravings of coming insanity. I never read anything more weird or powerful in its way than that last cry for help." "Tell us who wrote it, quick !" ex claimed Grace, who felt a light break ing in on her. "That's an odd thing about it. The sketch was unsigned, and the ac companying slip giving the author's name and address was accidentally lost. We had it put in type and de cided to publish it, thinking that the writer would soe and claim it. I bav9 the advance sheets here, but yester day, by good luck, the missing paper turned np and I determined to run in and explain matters to the presum ably irate lady in person. The ad dress, I believe, is in this neigebor hood ; the name " - Mr. Phillips took out a memorandum slip and regarded it through his eyeglasses - " Miss Honora Graves. Why, what is it ? Do you know her ?" Fortnna'ely Nora was in the kitchen daring thu ensuing conversational scene. She took her laurels very quietly when they were placed tumultuously on her brow. Sitting among the girls who welcomed her now as a sister "artist," she told them how the idea of transcribing her diary occurred to her as a last resort in the midst of a starving week, which came near to ending as tragically in reality as on paper? When no reply was received she gave tip all literary projects? and grasped the first opportunity that chance threw in her way - no other than Miss Elizabeth's offer. But upon beiug hailed as a promis ing "lion," with a career opening be fore her, our Honora very frankly and emphatically disclaimed the idea. "I might never succeed again," she said. "This wasn't art, but plain truth, which was forced out of me by the pinch of reality, and I don't want to have the screw put on a second time. No ; if New York has done nothiug else for me, nt least it has tamed my ambition and taught mo my placo." " But what shall you do ? You can't expect to travel incoguito and laugh at us in your sleeve, now that we know you ? " "Do ? I Hhall go home and have it out with dear old Dick,"cried Honora, impulsively, and that brought down the house.-Springfield Republican. NO HIRED WORKERS IN CUAM. The Benson Ia That livery Native Is n Landowner anil Kurtner. The great difficulty in Guam, from an American point of view, is the lick of laborers. Every native is a laud owner and fanner. A man may know how to bake bread, make shoes or build a house, get such a thiug as a regular baker, shoemaker or carpenter is unknown in Guam. You may be keptwaitiog weeks for a pair of shoes, or a chest, or a pair of trousers, be cause the man engaged to work for you has to harvest his corn, or build a hut on his ranch, or plaut his rice. Did you evor imagine what the condi tions would be if everyone were rich? Who would make our clothing, build our houses, cook our food? We should have to do these things for ourselves, unless we repaid somebody else by work for helping us in the time of our torubles aud necessity. These are the conditions in Guam. If you had ?"farm producing swoot potatoes, cocoanuts, corn, yams, taro, chickens, pigs,coffee, chocolate, sirup of cocoanut sap, vinegar, cider, sugar, beans and pumpkins, would you go to work on tho road for 50 couts a day (Mexican) or hue yourself as a farm hand for ?6 a month aud board? Tho peoplo of Guam will not do this, and are therefore called by some lazy and worthless. I have seen them on their plantations planting cocoanut trees, which, when once bearing, will give them a sure and steady incomo, be-, ^idea cul Ovating their-fiweet-.poUtoer, tobacco, coru, etc. I am sure I shoulu do as they do. . I do not say it is for the good of the'island that such con ditions exist. The roads and bridges aro bad, and nobody wants to mond them. Formerly all such work was done by convicts sent hero from Spain and the Philippines. We need labor ers and need them badly. Wo literally have no market, not a single store where you can go and buy a bushel of sweet potatoes, or a dozen of oranges, or a fowl or turkey. Yon have to, beg people to sell you thiugs. Th?y don't want money. They get preserved fruit, which they really do not need, and rice from tho traders in exchange for their dried cocoanut. We found that they were very anxious to get ship's tobacco when lust year's supply of tobacco gave out, so several of the officers laid in a supply of ship's tobacco and ex changed it for chickens, eggs, etc. It was the only way to induce the peoplo to bring them.-Correspondence, Chi cago Becord. QUAINT AND CURIOUS. A Duquesne (Iowa) man has a dog which was sent him by express all the way from Manila, Philippine Islands. Some of the wooden churches of Norway are fully 700 years old, and are still in an excellent state of preserva tion. Their timbers havo successfully resisted the frosty and almost Arctic wintere because they have boen re peatedly coated with tar. In Belgium organ grinders are com pelled by law to play each morning before the police magistrate, who must be satisfied that their instru ments are iu tune. An organ which is ont of tune must be put in order before a license is issued to the player. The practice of eating arsenic is vory prevalent among the peasautry of the mountainous districts of Austria, Hun gary and France. They declare that this poison enables them to ascend with ease heights which they could only otherwise climb with great dis tress to the chest. People are right or left oyed just aa they are right or left handed, and jnst as the right hand is usually tho more powerful, so is the right oyo. Only one person in 10 is loft sighted. It is very probable that the uso of weapons during countless ages has had some thing to do with tho extra power of the right eye. . : t Two curiosities in American ship building have recently boen completed at San Fraucisco. They aro stern wheel launches for use on thc Amoor river, Siberia, and when loaded thev draw but six inches of water. Thoj are 35 feet in length, 12 foot iu boam, and have a hold 21 tachos in depth. They have made seven knots nn hour on their trial trips, and tho eugiuea are wonderfully light and compact. It is not a common thing to see n church bell up a tree, yot there is one in the parish of Thoi field, Horts, Eng land, which occupies this unique po sition. Bather more lhau ?0 years ago the church wan rebuilt. There were not, however, sufficient fnnds tc complete the rebuilding, aud tho up per portion of thc tower and church remain unfinished to tho present time. AB there was no belfry iu which to place the bells, one was hung on the brauch of a targe walnut tree in th-* rectory close. .^OOOOOOOOQCOCOCGOOOOOOOCO MPAIBNIHE Iii THE PHILIPPINES. ?

McOutcbeon, the Manila correspondent of the Chicago Record, writes as follows in regard to tho progress of tho war in the Philip (Troopois deploring In order to Und some insurgent sharpshooters ooocouledln thu grass ulong the road from ludan to Naic.) pines: The organized insurrection ia practically at au end, and, therefore, the troops have to ?eal only with guerilla bauds and outlaws. Yet in the lase forty days the American forces hero have lost more men, more arms and moro supplies in the so called pacified districts than during any previous period of like length since tho insurrection began. If this is what guerilla warfaro means, thou wo will need more troops somo day, for tho new method of fighting ia proving moro effective than any stylo that tho insurgents have em ployed preciously. Almost every day brings a report of somo fresh ambuscade, wherein small forces of our troops aro attacked by a hundred or more Filipinos. Usually ono or more of our men are killed, aud tho rest are driven away by sheer force of overwhelming numbers. Then follows a punitive expedition, but these sortios seldom find c trac9 of tho enemy. Invariably tho insurgents kuow the exact strength of the force they are ambushing, for they usually lie in wait for small groups of ten or fifteon men, which they permit to approach] so dose that their first volley killa-or; wounds most of them, and leaves thc [ rcst.utfcorly -demoralized."---'' - ) Insurgents who live within, oui* lines, who are amigos in the daytime and enemios at night, have been par ticularly pernicious. It is now un safe, more than ever befcrc< to move in small numbers, oven in the dis tricts which aro presumably pacified by the presence of strong garrisons. The rank and file of the people in tho towns aro in full sympathy with these marauding raids, for they never render help by word or deed which BRINGING IN A WOUNDED FILIPINO. will aid our troops in locating a nc whipping the guerilla bands, althougl it is certain that thoy aro always awari of the plans and prospective move ments of these bauds. Even to-day there is not a native ir Manila, friendly though ho may pro fess himself to be, who will broatho i word ns to Aguinaldo's whereabouts yet there are doubtless thousands wh< know oxactly where ho is, and man; who doubtless aro in coustaut com munication with him. The list of our losses by bolo mei and ambushes in tho occupied dis tricts since January 1 is rather start ling. A list which I have selected from the files of a daily paper, and doubt less far from complete, shows tha about forty meu have been captur?e by the insurgents in the last fort; days, ns many more have been kille? and wounded, almost a hundred rifle and a great deal of ammunition hai been lost and a big quantity of ration has fallen into tho enemy's hands. Mobt of theso depredations have oe curred in the territory which we no^ are supposed to hold, and all the en gagemonts would como under the hea< of ambushes and assassinations. Thero is certainly a new conditio! UNITED STATES OA.VALKY Iii I>L.\Z, CENTRE AND AN INSU11UI ol warfare confronting the troops. Th timo is evidently gone for big, iinpot ing columns to march sedately throng tho country, columns so big that th insurgents deem it imprudent to o fie opposition. When tho column has passed, they como ont of tho woods and fall upon the little bands of strag glers and outposts and signal corps men. From now on the guerilla methods muBt be met by smaller and more mo bile forces. General Lawton, with his great experience in this method of waging war, would have been quick to adjust himself to tho new conditions. General Bellispro-eminently qualified for the kind of work that will now have to be done, while Geueral Funs ton, whose Cuban experience has fitted : tyra well to meet the new conditions, will undoubtedly adjust his tactics to meet those of tho insurgents. - Down in Negros Gcnoral Smith has for some mouths been engaged in the guerilla kind of fighting, and ho has been uble to crush it ont. When a drepredation was committed near or in a town on the island he promptly imposed a heavy lino on the placo. After doing this several times tho cit izens resolved themselves into a sort of vigilance committee aft a matter of financial preservation, and the depre dations ceased with startling sudden ness. Tho Tagalos, however, are more tenacious and vindictive in their fighting than ibo Visayans of Negros, OUR Ll AO A DE BE SCOUTS and it will require tho most stringent measures and vigorous pursuit to put them down. With Aguinaldo loose in the islands the work will be harder and more dangerous aud much moro lasting. A column of cavalry moving through the Luzon country is an extremely picturesque sight.

Every trooper carries his entire outfit on his horse's back. The cav airyman'u full kit consists of a bridle, a baiter, a saddle, saddlebags, blanket roll, poucbo, carbine, carbino boot, lariat, picket pin, nosebag, currycomb and brush, saber, two horseshoes (fit ted to his horse), some horseshoe nails, 140 rounds of carbine ammuni tion, a Colt revolver and twonty-five rounds of pistol ammunition and a canteen. li addition to these things he has his saddlebag more or less filled with rations. When a cavalry man is mounted, with jingling spurs and blue flannel shirt, thrown open at tho neck, with his felt campaign hat tipped rakishly over one eye, girt np with all his paraphernalia for the fray, ho makes a very interesting total and is likely to inspire respect in those who see him. Several hundred of him, mounted on big sixteen -han d American horses, distinctively multiply the im pressiveness of the picture. The G.-oTvth of Our Cities; America's growth, proportionate and absolute, in urbau population, has boon one of the marvels of tho cen tury. Of the 4,000,000 population of tho United States in round figures in 1790 only 132,000 resided in the cities of 8000 inhabitants or over. In 1890 of the G3,000,000 inhabitants of the coun try as a whole 18,000,000 Jived in cit ies of S000 or moro inhabitants. The city population of the United States, which was in the neighborhood of 3.35 per cent, of the aggrcgato inhab itants of the country in 1790,was 29.20 per cent, in 1890. As the growth of urban population, proportionate as well ns absolute, has been continuous for the past hundred years, and has shown a tendency to increase in tho past three or four de cades, the chances are that the returns of 1900 will show that more than thir ty-three per cent, of the aggregate population of the contiguous portion of tho United States reside in cities. As tho general tendency in nearly all growing countries is for tho cities to increase faster than the rural dis ENTERING SAN FEDRO. tricts the urban population is neces sarily greater in tho older nations thau in tho younger communities.

Tho exterior walls of a compara tively new building on Washington street, Boston, Mass., have an inter esting history. They were originally the walls of the Province House, a noted mansion of colonial times, which was built in 1679. It was three stor ies high, built of brick, with stone steps, and a beautiful lawn ornament ed the approach. In 1715 tho Prov ince bought it as a residence for the governors, who were wont to address the citizens from a front portico. It became private property early in tho present century and was soon compar atively isolated, a block of brick stores being erected in front of it. For somo time tho Province House was used as a negro concert hall. Fire in 18G4 destroyed all but tho walls which, as before stated, were used for a new building.-Detroit Free Press.
