THE LOVE OF LATER YEARS.
What of the strong: man's stubborn pas sion, When Love comes singing? sweet and low? What of the long-established fashion When Love comes pleading: "Let it go?" Prom habits that enslaved before He turns as one new-born, to sigh. He dreams of Wildwood haunts no more. His gun and rod uncherished lie. I The thunders of applause that shook The halls of state for him are all Forgotten when she turns to look And when lie hears her softly call; The wisdom that he had he lays Aside, forgetting to be Wise, He craves no honor but her prais®* His universe is in her eyes. IWhat of the strong man's solid reason When Hove comes sighing: "Stray with me?" i To noblt heights or down to treason He follows on submissively. From that which armies might have tried In vain to move him he re cedes. And at a pensive woman's side The strong man sighs and humbly plead*. The dreams that young love dreams are fair, The sighs that young love sighs are sweet. Glad angels hover, watching, where The lips ol coy young lovers meet. The skies above young love are blue, The laught» r of young love iä gay; To young a-ve all the world is new And ail its troubles lar away. But send to me the sweeter, later Love, blossoming where sorrows lie. The det p -r love the broader, greater, That comes to flow* r but not to die. For him, when youth's wild dreams are spent And Timt- has withered many a hope God's gifts ai ■ liest i! Love is sent To lead him down the western slope. —S. E. Kiser, in Chicago Record-Herald. Tales from the Knob Country (£ T" 5 HE Knob country lost its leadin ! and most valuable citizen vs lien Uncle Jasper died," reman,ed ihe man from that au. vied part oi the I':i.e coun ty wildenu -s that lies ba;. ol Laoha wack. "Why, Uncle .Immer could actu llv smell bear, I ncle Jasper could! And when it come 10 wild cats, why, gosh ail hemlock! he was li ko a prophet of old! "One time I hadn't seen a wildcat in two months, and I wanted a couple the wust way. Seemed as if wild cats had all left the county. So, one day 1 was passin' along by Uncle Jasper's and I asked him where all the wildcats was. "Ho said lie hadn't thought nothin' about wildcats for a good while. " 'Why,' says he, 'do you want some?* " 'Only a couple,' I says. " 'Lentme see,' says he. This is along in November,' he says. "Then lie looked around at the weath er awhile, and seemed to be considerin' the leaves, how they was failin', and then he says: " 'Well, Dan'l,' he says, T see by the way things looks that there's a couple o' wildcats down back o' the swamp .vender,' he says, and I'm glad you come along,' he says, ' 'cause 1 wouldn't 'a' thought nothin' about wildcats if you hadn't come along,' he says, 'and them two would a' been up here and played hob with my chickens to-night, sure!' he says. 'I wish you'd go down and git 'em,' he says, 'but you won't git 'em bol h if you don't act right, for they ain't together.' " 'Go down just beyend the big tama racks first.' he says. 'There, in one o' them tamaracks, or nigh it, you'll run agin one o' them wildcats,' he says. " 'It'll be the littlest one o' the two. Don't kill her dead,' he says. 'Jest wing her so she can't git away or jump on to you. Then she'll yell. Great Jupiter! how she'll yell!' he says. " 'Then you want to keep your eye peeled sharp, fer it won't be long before t'other tin'll come tearin' alongthat way, from up yi !«<lpr in the laurels, where he's lavin' about this time, watchin' fer a pheasant. " 'He'll hear them yells o' her'n,' says Uncle Jasper 'and he'll tear down to see what's goin' on. Stand out good where he'll see you about the time he gits with in a couple o' rod o' where t'other nn's a yellin', and spittiu' and squallin',' says Uncle Jasper. 'When he sees you he'll stop and squat. Then you let him bavé it. *' 'And be sure you kill him. If you don't mebbe you'll be sorry you went down after 'em. So be sure you kill him. " 'Then,' says Uncle Jasper, 'you kin settle t'other un,' he says, 'and you'll have 'em both, and I am glad you come along,' he says, 'so's tosetmetothinkin' about wildcats, and so's I could sort o' locate these two fer you,' he says. 'Them two is all there is in these parts to-day, 'cordin' to the signs,' he says. "That's the way Uncle Jasper laid out the programme fer me that day as to wildcats, and I follered it out and got 'em both. A leadin' and valuable citi zen Uncle Jasper was, and it was a big swat to the Knob country when he passed away. "It was somethin' tough on him that he had to go, too, partic'ly as he had to leave seteh a woman to be a Widder as Hanner was. W hy, whenever I remem ber Manner and them three bears I al most have to set down and shed tears for Uncle Jasper to think he had to go and leave setch a woman a widder. "Them three bears, the old she one and the two spring cubs, they come down into the corn patch at Jasper's clearin' jest about dusk one day, when the milk was in the corn, and laid out to have a high old feast on to it. They knowed, them bears did, jest as sure as you're born, that Uncle Jasper was 'way back o' the Knob, havin' the gun with him, and wasn't cornin' home that night; but they didn't know that Hanner had so many p'ints about her. "They had been rompin' around in the corn, tearin' off roastin' ears and havin' a good time gener'ly, before Hanner dis covered 'em. There wa'n't no gun in ■ . , 1 the house, but Hanner didn't calc'late Lo let that bear family harvest that corn crop, gun or no gun. "Uncle Jasper had both the dogs with him, too, but the little yaller whiffet was to home. So Hanner, she grabbed a pitchfork, and callin' the whiffet start ed fer the corn patch to attract the bears. "The bears didn't 6ee her till the whiffet begun to bristle up and bark, but when they did look up and see what ■ was cornin' they only sniffed, jest as if they considered that here was more fun than ever cut out fer 'em. But Hanner's . dander was 'way up, and when the old bear riz on its hind feet and made a big showin' o' teeth, Hanner marched right on. and give the hear a jab with the pitchfork that made it holler. "The whiffet attracted the boar in the rear at the same time, and the three of 'em scrambled away and shinned up a : chestnut tree that stood in the patch. "If them bears had an idee 1 Hat by gittin' out o' the way o' the dog and the pitchfork in this way they was goin'to ! have the field all to theirselves when 1 Hanner got tired o' waitin' fer 'em to ! come down and went away, they was terrible mistook. Eii's Sam lived only a mile from there, and Hanner could 'a' , soon skited over and got him and his gun, hut she wa'n't goin' to tal e no 1 chances on ihem bears gittin' away, so she plunked herself down at the foot o' the tree and l:ep' the bears from giftin' down otiten it, though they tried to do it more than a dozen times. "Hanner knowed that Eli's Sam'd he along hy there early in the mornin'. so there she sot and sot all night, jabbin' the pitchfork good and deep into the hears every time they'd think they had a chance to sneak down, and sendin' 'em back outen reach a'gin, hollerin' and grittin' their teeth. "A iittle after daylight next mornin' Eli's S'*m come along, on his way to his (■hoopin', and ns luck would have it he had his gun with him.' He heered some one ho'lerin' to him. and he see Hanner standin' in the corn beckonin' to him with the pfehfork. " 'What's the matter, Hanner?' says Eli's Ram. "There ain't nothin' the matter!' Hanner hollers back. 'But I got a crop o' hears here, and I want you to help rne gelber 'em!' she hollers. "Then Eli's Sam, he see the boars in the tree, and lie trotted over there on the double-ouick and picked off all three of 'em as easy as turnin' pancakes. "A shame to leave seteh a woman as Hanner a widder? Should say so: and leadin' citizen and valuable to the Knob country though he was, 1 wouldn't 'a' tli ii n ! : T'ncle Jasper would 'a' done it. "But Hanner didn't stay a widder long. How could she? A lumber con tractor with considerable money res cued lier, and they tell me she's livin' at the county seat now, in a real board house with shingles on to it, an' hes a woman to do her washin'.' N. Y. Sun. TO DETAIN FOOD IMPORTS. Good. Arriving; from Germany, France nml Itniy to ne Exam ined for Adulterations. "Several cargoes of food products have arrived at eastern ports from Ger many, France and Italy, suspected of being in violation of the new pure food act. which went into effect July 1, and the collectors of customs at the pons of arrival are requested to hold the ship ments until a chemical analysis can be made to ascertain whether all or any part of these cargoes can he admitted." This is the substance of a letter re ceived by the secretary of 1he treasury from the department of agriculture, and is the first step toward a testy of 1 be new law. Dr. Wiley, chief of tbe chem istry division of the agricultural de partment, has been engaged for months in mat ing a careful analysis of all food products imported. He has carefully as certained and noted the component parts of all commodities imported, and has prepared what may lie termed the blacklist. Upon this list is a complete record of all commodities found dele terious to health, all that are forbidden to he sold in the country where pro duced. all which are restricted in sale in the countries in which made or from which exported, and ail which are false ly labeled either in respect to place of manufacture or contents. These classes of goods under the new law may he ex cluded. The suspected commodities men tioned in the letter from Secretary Wil son include canned goods, sausages, wines and liquors, olive oil and other food products. Instructions have been issued by the secretary of the treasury to the respective collectors of customs who have jurisdiction over the "car goes" to detain them. The collectors will be required to forward at once to the secretary of agriculture samples of the goods. The "cargoes" that have been held are upon the agricultural de partment's blacklist, and Secretary Wil son, from the advices received from sources abroad, has reason to believe the entries must be excluded. The new law is In large measure re taliatory, the result of foreign discrim ination against American food products, and will De enforced by Secretary Wil son without regard to the protests it may bring forth from European govern ments.
