IIo bowed lid head a. If the chords
Of life lmJ snapped ln twain,
I couW not catch his harried word,,
But they sounded foil of rutin
Ills eyes were lit with A feverish Are,
His cheek with hectic stain,
And he stooped to kits my band,
Ills tears ran down like rain.
We met once more in after years,
When I—another's lrido—
Had learned to measure by my tears
The costliness of pride.
Amid the gay, unheeding crowd,
Chuncn threw us side by side
He seemed the wreck of a noble heart
Whose hope had early died.
Tbe unforgetten look returned—
The sad impassioned look
It seemed to pierce my very soul
And read it as a book.
He bowed his head and strove to smile
Alas I I could not brook
To know bow worthless all I gained
And see what I forsook. *j:

WBITTBN FOR THK ST. CLOUD JOHBHAT,,
BT MRS. JANE G. SWISSHELM.
JUDGE KNOX' S OPINION OF TH E SITU-
ATION, A N W A CAME O I
As Margaret walked homeward, a
brisk firm step overtook her and Judge
Knox was at her side. Sho had seen
him for thefirsttime at tho meeting
she had just left. His yoiee and man
ner was that of a man who knows he is
acting an important part in the world,
and is fully resolved to make both him
self and it the better for his having
been here. His face could best.be de
scribed by the one word "shrewd."
His hair was grey, and he walked with
a stout gold-headed cane, a gift from a
Sunday School association. As helation
came up he said
"Excuse me, Miss''—and hesitated,
"Merlyn" she supplied. "Yes, yes,
Miss Merlyn, I believe I do not remem
ber names quite so well as I did twenty
years ago but my friends Mr. and
Mrs. Granger, have told me of you,
and I know you quite well. I intend
ed getting an introduction at the meet
ing, but you saw I was engaged every
minute he had been Secretary "and
so 1 have been left to introduce myself
but we western people do not stand on
Margaret received his advances cor
dially, and noticed that in talking he
frequently threw back his head, or
rather raised it quickly as though his
ower jaw did not fall readily and he
must lift the upper to open his mouth
wide enough for an intcrjectional ex
pression to get freely ont. In doing so
he usually passed his fingers under his
cravat as though to relieve tbe pressure
on his threat. When be closed his
mouth he shut in all the red portion of
the lips which gave it the appearance
of a crack across his face, with a dent
at each end. He was evidently a char
acter, odd and interesting. After go
ing through the motion described he
"You are Miss Merlyn, Margaret
Merlyn, and I am John Knox—good
old name, but the mantle did not fall
with the name. They call me Judge
Knox because they elected me once to
a Probatcship in a new country where
I was then living. The title sticks
when the office is gone I am nothing
but a lawyer now, been in practice for
thirty-five years and got pretty well
used to the ropes. What do you think
of our meeting to-day
"Oh, I am rejoiced at the result,"
"Hem!" said he, closing his lips to
a crack, and striking the pavement
with his cane, then throwing up his
head, and passing his fingers under his
cravat he added: "We must wait for
"There needs no waiting to know
Miss Ironton is dismissed," said Mar
"But will she go he said, looking
straight before him and vigorously
swinging his cane.
"I was afraid she would disregard
any action of the meeting but this
was so emphatic, and Mr. Baxter taking
such a stand, how can she remain
"Simply, by remaining!" was the
reply and he continued, "Baxter's a
good fellow, gave a hundred dollars to
make his wife and sister Honorary
Members of the Association, allown
them to use his name in their public
appeals for funds, and all donations arc
sent to his care. The loss of his sup
port would be quite a blow, but he is
no match for Miss Ironton. Miss Au
gustus Ironton, niece of the Hon. Au
gusta Ironton—not a bit of it I" and
throwing up his hand he snapped his
fingers, saying: "she doosn't caro that
for his resolution," and he settled his
ehin in his cravat.
"But," said Margaret, "it is the res
olution of the society."
"All onol all one!" he exclaimed,
"if it were the resolution of two socie
ties, and the general assembly of the
saints, or sinners either. Societies do
not.amount to a row of pins in a close
fight, or in fact in any way except rais
ing funds. Some individual always
controls the society or runs the ma
chine. Miss Ironton runs this one,
and has an object in it The society
meets, passes its resolutions and then
its managers go, the one to his farm,
the other to his merchandise as I
said to my littlo congregation last Sun
day evening, tor you aro perhaps aware
that I add to the profession of the law
some little gospsl also I took out li
cense as a local preacher some twenty
five years ago, and occasionally havo
great success. My sermon lust Sun
day evening was on tho parable of tbe
supper, and those who permit the in
terests aad avocations of this life to
keep them away from that great feast
but as I was applying it to the case in
hand, a society disperses, eaeh member
is pressed by his own affairs, commit
tees fail to act, and one earnest man or
woman runs the machine. Miss Iron
ton has a nice place, in fact a magnifi
cent establishment, never was so well
fixed in her life, not one woman in
twenty thousand ever are. She is ab
solute mistress, every luxury, servants
to come at her call. She says to this
one 'go, and he goeth to that come,
and he cometh to another do this, and
he doeth it.' The children aro her
humble dependants. She gratifies her
love of power by governing them and
her natural ferocity by punishing them.
Sho has every motive for holding on
to her place. Then, her relatives anx
ious to provide for her, raised three
thousand dollars by fairs, donations,
&c, &c. This is placed in her hands,
to bo used far the Institution at her
discretion. Sho has had the discretion
to place it in good bank stocks, and
draws her salary from the funds of the
Institution. Yes, when they have been
that they didn't know where to getple,
meal for the next day's pudding, and
have come to me for five dollars—thank
God, I generally have five dollars—
Miss Ironton's discretion has led her to
buy on tho credit of the association, im
ported delicacies lor her own table, but
sho has always been too discrete to
touch that immortal three thousand."
While talking he kept up the occa
sional motions already described. They
Were his own peculiar mode of gesticu
and with, them and his some
times bringing the points of his finders
together across his breast, and then
throwing them apart as if he opened
the door of his heart, he added a very
unusual emphasis to his v.ords, and
made them singularly impressive. Af
ter swinging his cano with unusual vig
or back and forth in silence for several
seconds, he continued:
"It was three hundred I think, that
held the pass against Xerxes and hisdo
army and with such a leader as Miss
Ironton, her thoroughly, entrenched
three thousand, will hold that Ther
mopola against ten such associations."
"And for God's sake," exclaimed
Margaret, "what is to be done
'•Why, you must oust her," he siid,
throwing down the upper part of his
head against his firm under jaw, clos
ing his lips to their tightest pressure
and running his fingers under his cra
vat. "I was in hope" he added, throw
ing up his head, "until I saw her that
Mis. Bateman would do it, but she gets
hysterica. It must be a woman. No
man could take it up, this quarrel among
women and she must be backed by
the press and public opinion. They
all shiver at sight of exposure and
Miss Ironton has artfully taken advan
tage of this. They treat the public as
though it were a great baby to bs amus
ed with falsehoods, or as England
sought to treat our colonies, tax its be
nevolence lor the support of their In
stitution, and deny it the right of know
ing what is done with the funds.—
Their Annual Reports aro budgets ol
make believe. Now, my dear young
lady," he said with an air of knowing
all about it, "My experience of this
same public is that it is quite as intel
ligent as tbe average of grown people,
and that jou can trus* it, every time.
You call on the publio to support your
Institution, and it responds liberally
.Your Institution gets into a snarl like
this, call on your public again, tell the
exact trnth, and if your cause is just,
your generous public untangles the
snarl, and instead of losing, you gain
in its confidence.
As I was saying, some woman must
espouse the cause of these orphan chil
dren, make it her own, not by getting
up a personal grievance to redress, but
as the Savior espoused the quarrel of a
lost worid, by making its debts His
own. I understand it is your purpose
to do so, to turn the burning glass of
public scrutiny into that establishment,
and it cannot stand the fire a month.
Get a good focus, and the Iron woman
will melt under it"
"I agree with you, but have promis
ed to await the action of the Annual
Meeting, if this fails."
"Well, this will certainly fail, but it
is better to wait. You must not have
hysterics, must be cool, you must to a
degree, concentrate the opposition, or
your forces will desert and enlist under
the enemy. In youth I had a military
turn of mini and a christian's life
here is a life ot warfare, with principal
ities and powers, and spiritual wicked
ness in high places. As I said to my
congregation on a recent occasion, we
must put on the whole armour of God.
Well, if you feel it a duty to make
war ot the wickedness on that hill,"
nodding toward The Home, "you must
do all to stand, and stand therefore—
that is, because your cause is just, and
you have made every preparation."
"In other words," Margaretsaid smil
ing, "you would have me trust God and
keep my powder dry!"
"Exactly so, exactly so Sec what
you ean prove. It is not what is true,
but what you can prove to be so. She
will contest every inch of the ground,
and this ease may come into court. It
it should, rely upon the best service I
can render I will take my fee in the
satisfaction of a good deed"
"Into court siid Margaret in sur
"Exactly. If, as Mrs. Granger in
forms mo you intend doing, )u make
a public statement of facts she may sue
"But if I can prove what I say
"SO much tho worse, in a criminal
action. Our law hold's that the great
er the truth the greater the libel. I
shall not trouble you with technical
terms. You would not be permitted
to prove your assertions, and cculd be
imprisoned, for iuaking them. Only In
a civil action could you be permitted to
prove the truth of your assertions. Sit
down aud count your cost before you
begin to build vour town."
They walked on in silence as if he
gave her time to make the calculation
Her eyes were bent on the pavement
and Judge Kendon's wards came up,
"You might be on the high road to
any success, and if your sympathies
crossed your path, off you would go on
a tangent." She had all a woman's
dread of a court, and in studying law
as a profession, did not propose ever to
enter a court room. This new view of
Th» Home troubles startled her and
"Mr. Baxter, and all those other peo
are so earnest they will surely car
ry this matter through. Judge Ken
don- feels that she must leave."
"Hem!" sail the old gentleman,
as he threw up his head and ran hisgets
fingers under his cravat. "Baxter will
not resign his Postofnce, nor Kcndon
his place on tho Bench to follow the
matter up. Should Kendon and Grang
er publish a statement, Bullion will
publish a minority report. The thing
would go into tbe political canvass,
and a large party sustain Miss Ironton
for party purposes. They have no per
sonal knowledge of the facts, and can
not make the case their own. I should
by no metns advise you to undertake
the job, but if you do, rely un my as-were
sistance to the last. Small as that may
be it may be useful, for a large majori
ty of these people who voted for that
resoludou to-day, feel that they have
done their whole duty, and will give
you the cold shoulder if you attempt to
more. Very few will resist unto
blood striding againut sin. Good peo
ple like to see the good work go on,
but it must go on in their way. The
Scribc3 and Pharisees would have wel
comed Christ if He had come in their
way. Tbe Association wishes Miss
[ronton remored but to remove her
will not endanger the Association. She
will not be removed without such an
explosion as they feel will destroy tbe
Association, and there the matter
stands. Let any one step in and dohim
anything to alarm them for the safety
of the Association, Miss Irontoa stands
her ground and in self defense, the
association will rally to her standard.
No one is competent to the task ot her
removal but a woman, so that there can
be no appeal on aaesunt of sex, and it
must be one who has a vocation for
self sacrifice, one who can bear the de
sertion or positive opposition of those
who have pledged their assistance, one
who can bear to have the vilest or
meanest motives attributed to her ac
tion's, one who if need be, can bear im
prisonment, and yet stand her ground,
an Abby Kelly Foster or Lucretia Mott.
Count the costs before you take any
important step I" &nd be made a vig
orous lunge with his cane at some im
aginary object, and continued:

O N S E A I E FAJOMING.
About the year 1,100, King Wil
liam Rufus, of England, was sho°t while
hunting in the Nex? Forest, by an un-of
fortunate arrow sent from the bow of
Walter Tirol. There was a good de.l
of gossip and scandal about the affair
as there is now when a man in authority
killed. Some thought it was a
judgment on the red-headed, self-willed
ting for having destroyed a great num
ber of fine farms, and' turning good
many quiet people out of doors for no
better reason than that he wanted to
hare an immense forest, well-stocked
with game, in which to hunt with bis
nobles. Some said that this man, Wal
ter Tirel, who, by tho way, was a great
lord, and a great favorite with the kin"
had killed his master by accident, and
was sorely sorry for it but ethers who
less charitable by far, held that a
quarrel had arisen between them,
that the arrow was purposely aimed at
him. And what tended to" make this
theory probable was the circumstances
that the slayer, as soon as the deed «as
done, put spurs to his horse, galloped to
thesea coast and embarked on board a
vessel bound for the continent.
The dead king, however, did not liathe
long neglected, for a poor chareoat
burner who lived in abut in the edge
»f the forest, and who plied kls art there
found bis monarch weltering
blood, the arrow still sticking
placed him on his one-horse c°al

to live in the same New Forest, rent

Now, the strangest part of this story
is to como. Ajreeent American traveler
in England, states that tbe direct de.

lives just where his old ancestors did

his sooty ait and, what is stranger than
all, still hauls (he produce of his kiln to

The Post office Department ha-3 its
stamps ready. They are engraved by
the American Bun!c Note 'Company,
and arc in the very highest style of art!
The symbols from tiie stamps are in
keeping X7ith the spirit ot the age and
the peculiar character of our institu

of Franklin the color is Roman ochre.
The two cent denominations are. light
bronze, ar-d have the post horse and
ride: while tbe three cent stnmps,
which are of imperial ultramarine, h-.vc'
a locomotive heading to the right. The
six cent stamps are of the same color as
the three cent denominations, and bear
the brad of Washington. Those of ten
cent arc orange color and bear a shield
on which rests an eagle with outstretch
ed wings. The twelve cent denom
inations are in milori green, with a
representations of an ocean steamship.
The fifteen cent denominations repre
sent the landing of Columbus. The
picture is in Prussian blue, and the
scroll and ornamental work is in palo
India red. The twenty-four cent
stamps have an admirably executed
representation of the Declaration of
independence, tbe picture being in pur
ple lake, while the scroll and orna
anental work, is ot light milori green.
The thirty cents have an ea«le facing
to the left, with outspread wings, resting
on a shield, with flags grouped on eith
er side. Above the eagle are thirteen
stars, arranged in a semi-circle. The
eagle and shield are in carmine,
while tho flags are blue. The ninety
cent stamps bear tbe head of Lincoln
in an oval. The portrait is in black,
while tbe surrounding ornamental scr. 11

The directors of this road, as we
have already stated, despairing of gov
ernment aid, have askedforthe power
of mortgaging their lands, and the re
quest has been granted. These lands
are estimated to be worth not less than
8100,000,00?. The company propose
tj go to work at once and construct
•Jieir line as rapidly as their means will
permit, commencing at the head of
Lake Superior Tand proceeding west.
The first section ot the road will ex
tend to the Red River, and strike it at
the head of its navigation, a distance oF
a little over two hundred miles frem
.\»akc Superior. The western portion
of this section, which will be about 125
miles long, will pass through the best
part of Minnesota, having a soil of great
fertility, specially adapted to whett
growing. Tba next section will extend
from the Red River to Fort Clarke, on
the Missouri, about 250 miles. Fort
is about 500 miles by the course
of the river above Sioux City, which is
the highest point now reached by a
railroad from the East. Tbe surveyed
distmce irjro Luke Superior to the
Missouri is 435 miles.
Tbe Missouri is navigable from Fort
Oiarko to Fort Benton, near its falls, go
that, when the road is finished to tbe
former point it will take most cf the
travel and traffic to and from Montreal
acd Idaho, and a large share of the Or
egon and Washington territory. Here
tofore ail the machinery and other sup
pliesforthe gold regions of Idaho, Mon
tana, and Western Oregon have been
taken Ihere overland at eDormous ex
pense, or by tho long eourse of the Mis
souri from its mouth. This business
itself will furnish profitable emtlfy
ment for a railroad extending from
Lake Superior to tbe Upper Missouri,
reducing so grertly as it will tho length
of tbe voyage. These supplies will te
furnished from the Lake region hereaf
ter, and will make a most important ad
dition to its business—one which will
increase from year to year.
Tbe opening which the first section
of this road will make for the rising
settlements in the Saskatchewan coun
try, by means cf the navigation of the
Red Riv? r, is one of great importance.

An illustration of the importance to
lake commerce of the opening of a
part only of tbe Nonbcra PaciSc Rsii
load is found ia the fact that an emi
nent Eaglish engineer who was sent to
Minnesota from London two years ago,
to examine report on the St. Paul
L::ke Superior Railroad, gave it as
bis opiuion u*= thirty propellers
""ould be required to eary off the grain
immediately en the completion ot that
road. It would not be lor.sr before this
first section of the Northern PaciSc
Railroad would bring as much grain to
the lake as the St. Paul road would.
At Srst sight tbe estimate of tha engi
neer may appear wild, but a plight cal
culation will make it plain, that thirty
propellers, averaging i'ouneen trips a
season, and carrying a eargo of about
thirty .thousand bushels of wheat,
would not be able ty transport in a sea
ion more thru twelve to fourteen mil
lions of busbefs. Ia view of tbesj
facts and prospects should there be any
delay in enlarging our canal, so as to
lower its charges for freighting, and
