[Mrs. Mary Clammer's Poem Before the New York Press Association.] Mnn of the eeg'r eyes and teeming brain ! - Snittil is the honor that men dole to thee , They pnatch the fruitage ot thy jeer of paiu I devour yet scorn the tree. What though tlie treasore of thy nervous force, Thy rich vitality of mind and heart, Goes swiftly down before thy Moloch's courne Men cry ; "it is not art 1" The poet, dallying with his fitful muse. On latftriuz Petasus. whose haltine Uride Sometimes given out he scorns the man of "news' Cries : "See, we're p.irted wide!" The noveli?t, elate, from lofty crest Of tiction'H lovely palace of the air, Look down and sighs : Only a journalist ! 'Mj height is his despair." , The. jays minute of feebler "literature," Who liphtly chatter on its outmost lim Of caught bntof their small "position'' sure Point scornfully at him ! The statesman smirched, with pallid malice grim, Or red with wrath, doth In the morning read Of fair faith bartered, of Hue honor dim, In his recorded deed. Lo, look for thunder then ! Tlis fierce reply In House or Senate, as he leads the vau ; Tirae-server and place-selkr, loud his cry ; 4Lown, cursed newspaper man !" Who takes the daily journal, cool and damp, And weighs its ceaseless toll on nerve and braia ? Xor morning sun, nor genial evening lamp, Keveals its birth, of pain. "Only a newspaper!" Quick read, qnick lost. Who sums the treasure that it carries hence ? Torn, trampled under feet, who counts thy cost? btar-eyed Intelligence I And ye, the nameless ! Best-beloved host !

On lonely wastes, within the swarming marts, In silent dream, in speaking deeds of men ; Quick with momentum from your deathless hearts. Your thoughts will live again. O, living journalist ! When faith hath fled. When men crush men; amid the thick of strife, Bethink thee of one Man, divine, who said : "I am the truth, the life !" Leave science, leave philosophy its crown. Yet sweeter ever must be that man's sleep. Who, Btill hia mother's boy," prays, lying down : "His Lord his soul to keep." Whate'er our prixep, or bow fair our crown. Or deep our IoeSnSS. oniv this is beet The soul's great peace. Nor sneer, nor smile, nor iruwu, Can shake It from its rest. Exalt thy calling ! On Its spotless shield Write truth, write honor valor first and last. Cravens may clutch thy stars, and thou not yield; Love them and hold them fast ! Defender of the people, of the State ; Kindler and qnickener of majestic thought, Sure of thy final triumph thou canst wait The crown thy patience wrought. To serve thy generation, this thy fate, 44 Written in water" swiftly fades thy name ; But he who loves his kind does first, and late, A work too great for fame. [For the News. THE HUMANITIES OF CHICAGO. HOW WEALTH AND CHARITY GO HAND IN HAND. 1. Goingout to Central Park, which lies on the western limits of Chicago, I passed a green and beautiful spot, on which were growing large trees, abundance of flowers, and grass kept green by irrigation. There were also fountains, benches and rustic seats. The whole was enclos ed, and seemed to be a delightful re treat from the sun, with its long and shaded vistas, but what struck me with surprise wasa large placard, bearing the legend : " This is the People's 1'ark. -Never Hind the Grass.'' The scores of happy children, tumliling around in all the abandon of joy, contrasted strangely with the wearied and distressed looks of the same class, sitting on the hot benches in the Cincinnati parks, while everywhere they are warned by little boards stuck up, to "keep off the grass." What is grass for, if the children cannot roll on it and over it, "Like bees all over, in seas of clover?'' Even in fashionable Lincoln Park, in Chicago, great spaces and commons are devoted to the people, ,2. Jutting out from Lincoln Park is a pier, running far into the lake, and fretted and washed by its green water?, and here a building has been erected and is kept up at the ex pense of the city, where all children may come and get the fresh air, and feel the glow of health, as it comes with the waves of the inland sea. Here the children of the poor are taken care of, nourished, brought back to health, and given free of charge what their more fortunate fellow-creatures who have wealth ob tain for money. 3. Drinking Fountains innumera ble may be found all around the city, elaborately finished, and al ways running with pure, sparkling water, for the dumb creatures who serve man so faithfully and well. You see no tired, thirsty, famishing horses, for they, like man, find every provision made for their comfort, and the drinking fountains speak louder than any words in praise of our advancing civilization. There are many other institutions, such as Free Libraries, Free Con certs, Free Museums, Art Galleries, Zoological Gardens, and so forth, in the interests of the people, to be found in the great Metropolis of the Northwest, but the three that I have above singled out satisfied me that the love of all the fair humanities of life, and the most perfect and true religion, can exist side by sida with the greatest material pros perity, and as this great country grows, during the swift-gliding years, richer and grander, the peo ple will share tncre and more in its strength and glory. The Pessimist, or the gentleman who persists in finding something in tensely lovely in the past, and in predicting all manner of evil to our country and to the people thereof by reason of the growth of immense for tunes, has but to go to Chicago. There, he will find that people like these, who turned a swampy lagoon into a Venice and Paris combined, and who, when the labors of years were destroyed in a single night, plucked courage, fortune and suc cess from the ashes of desolation, do not obtain wealth except to adorn it, and this wealth and the power it gives, will be turned into a stream of blessing for all, and not hoarded for the gratification of the few. The miser, hoarding his gold year by year, for the benefit of spend thrift heirs, who will make his hard earned dollars "take unto themselves the wings of the morning and fly to the uttermost parts of the earth," may contemplate the vast public works of Chscago t the interests of the people, and all the people, and learn a lesson of wisdom, and he who decries the acquisition of wealth, and in village obscurity re tails his profound saws about the danger to the country from the Jay Goulds, the Tanderbilts, the Mar shal Fields, et cetera, has but to vis it Chicago, and see what men like these courageous, intellectual, brainy lords of commerce accomplish, and his soul, dwarfed by its "pent up TJtica" surroundings, will leap into new life, and flow in a channel as different from its present one as the once sluggish, creeping Chicago .River from the great artery this sort of men have now made it. The glory-of America is in its boundless resources, not of rivers or lakes, or plains, or mountains, or mines, but of brains, in the men who control its commerce, and to see these men Chicago is the place H. C. Wyoming Women. Albany lecturer recently 8poke as follows concerning elections in Wyom- The elections, though sometimes closely contested and very animated, are entirely peaceful and orderly. A lady no more hears low language or meets rough treatment at the polls than she does in her home. Some ladies stay about the polls and electioneer for votes, and no one finds fault with this. At the election for delegate to Congress Mrs. Corbett, wife of the successful can didate, a handsome young bride of a few months, went from house to house in Cheyenne and sent out carriages and wagons many miles into tha coun try to briDg the women to the polls. Mr. Corbett owed his election largely to the efforts of his wife and the women whose aid she enlisted. No one found any fault with her; every one felt her action to be necessary and creditable. Plucky? Rather. There are no cow ards among these women. The most retined and stylish of them can drive or ride the ranch horses and ponies, ani are capital shots with pistols or Winchester rifles. They think nothing of riding out, carrying a rifle and shooting a prairie wolf, a bear or a mountain lion. When the hostile In dians were roaming the country the women who lived at lonely ranches, where they often had to be loft alone for some time, talked freely about the matter, but showed no fear. One wo man that 1 know kept her doors aud windows fastened and her rifle within reach, but expressed no dread and kept on with her usual work. One night she heard a great noise in her corral (cattle-pen), and ia the morn ing found the Indians had been there and stolen three or four horses and kine, but they did not go near the house. They had heard how well she could shoot. In Cheyenne there are many colored people, and the colored servant girls vote the same as their mistresses, and are often brought to the polls in the samo carriages. When I lived at Chtigwatcr Station, on the road to tha Black Hills, about fifty miles north of Cheyenne, the poll for that district was about a mile south of as on that road. We were all wanted to vote to help elect Frank Hamilton, from Baltimore, a horseback reporter from the Cheyenne papers, justice of the peace. So they took an old-fashioned Rocky Mountain stage-coach that was standing disused at the public ranch (tavern), loaded in twelve or fifteen men who worked about the ranch, three ladies and the colored servant firl, put to the coach a pair of wild orses, they wanted to break in, har nessed two well-broken horses before them, put the ranch in charge of a young colored man from Baltimore who had not lived in the Territory long enough to bo a voter, and away we bowled down the road together to the poll and voted. The wagons were bringing women to the poll for thirty miles around, and in the evening the people from the poll came up to the public ranch and had a grand supper and dance in honor of Frank Hamil ton's election. Women's pay in Wyoming is as good as men's, or better. In Cheyenne tl.e waiter girls and chambermaids get . -'." to $30 a month, while men's pav in different employ ments is $18 to $25. At Chngwater Station, where I kept the public ranch, collected the Black Hills stage fares and acted as postmas ter, I received $3o to $00 a month, and the stage drivers, whose work is at times very hard, as they have to drive through in the face of wind, rain, hail or snow, told me they did not get as much as I. Stage Terms. The general terra used to designate an actor is "fakir," a word which ori ginally meant a magician. From it is coined the verb "fake," which means to imitate or sham. Few actors are willing to acknowledge that other actors are good; hence the slang of the theater abounds in terms used to designate bad actors. Of these the most frcqueut are "duffer," "snido actor," and "bum actor." The "variety" player is looked down upon by the legitimate actor, and Some Things About Words. are queer things in some re spects. Perhaps you think that they have always the same meaning. For instance, that "prevent" and "charity" and "pitiful," and many others I could mention, always meant just what they do nowadays. If you think this, you greatly mistake. A word is not like a house, which, if let alone, stands still and has the same look yesterday and to-day. It is more like a landscape, which varies from time to time. Some words have, in the course of several hundred years, so changed meir signincation that they mean the very opposite of what they used to. There is the common word "prevent." It comes from the Latin words venire. io go, anu pre, rieiore. iow any one ean go before another for either one of fo purposes. He may go in front of him, to help him along; or hs may come m iront or mm, to push him back. ow, just think of it; three hundred years ago, this word "prevent" meant the loriuer; it now means the latter. Nowadays you prevent a person by stopping, hindering him; your forefath ers used to prevent persons by assisting the u e., "going before," to lead them on, as it were, by the hand, not to keep them back and irapedQ them, as prevent means in mesa a ays. "Quick" is another word that ha3 changed its meaning. It used to mean alive; "quick and dead" means the living and the deceased. We do not often use the word nowadays in that sense. "Saints" once meant all holy persons: now. it signifies chiefly dead persons who are esteemed holy. "Pitiful," meant showing pity; now, it means, as you know, something en tirely different. "Gossip" is from the two words "God" and "Sib;" aod did mean God parent; now, by a gossip, we under stnd a talkative, tale-telling person. At the christening of Queen Elizabeth, in his great play of Henry the Eighth, Shakespeare makes the king say to the Godparents: My noble Gossip, ye have been too prodigal: I thank ye heartily; so should this lady. When abe haa so much En hsn." Another word that has lost its old sense is sober. Among us of to-day, in ordinary use, the word means not intox icated. Some hundreds of years ago, and in certain uses still, it had the sense Of sedate only; when we use it in this way nowadays, we frequently sty "sober-minded," in orIer fully to express our meaning. "Charity" now usually signifies the giving of alms to the poor. But not so in the early life of the word. It then meant simply love love to God and to man. The derivation of words is also a very interesting study. There is the word "husband." He is (or ought to be) what his name indicates the nowe-bond. "Wife" is another very interesting word. It originally meant the ono who wore weaving being a common indus try of women in other days. '"Saunter" is from sain't-terre, or holy laud. When the Crusaders who had cone in great numbers to rescue the Holy Land from the Saracen, who had invaded and conquered it returned to their respective countries, they had so long led the lazy life of the soldier that they had acquired a slow, indolent way of walking and persons would say of them: "There is one who has just come from saint-terre." Hence, saunter to walk indolently, leisurely. "Gospel" is God's-pel, or good-tidings. "Angel" is a messenger; "God," the good Being. Dr. Lowrie. Teaching the Young Idea. "Attention, children!" said the prin cipal, entering the class-room, followed by a stranger; this gentleman will a-sk you a few questions in arithmetic. Ha is the superintendent of schools at Mula Gulch, Nevada, that great Western Si.at of which you have so often heard." "Which his name are Dodd Shorty Dodd." said the visitor, and mounting the platform he drew a bowie-knife from his boot-leg and tapped for attention on the desk. "We will now proceed to do a sum in simple edition. A gentleman who had a head on him from last night met another gentleman in Dew-Drop Inn, who put a huad on him. How many heads did that gentleman have on him? 'ThreeP Now you're talking. We will next proceed to subtraction. Wall eyed Bob had live fingers ou his left hand (including his thumb) when he injudiciously called Buckskin Joe a limping mule. Buckskin Joe drawed his eleven-inch tooth-pick, and the bar keeper subsequently swept up two fin gers. Howniany lingers had Wall-eyed Bob left? 'Three!' You're right, and I,ve $500 here in this little pocket-book that says you are." "We generally do these sums in apples and other domestic fruit," said the principal, timidly. "Quite right, quite risrhl," said the gentleman from the Far West, "but my plan is universally admitted to be more national more patriotic. It was criti cised soma at our last convention at Gallows Forks, but a majority favored it, and the gentleman who opposed it walks with a crutch yet. Now, then, kids, hump yourselves for a problem in multiplication and edition. A gentle man held a full at a social game of poker three nines and two sevens. How many spots was on his cards? 'Forty-one!' Surely! Mister, yonr class is no slouch of a class at 'rklnnatic. I will just give the kids one more an easv one. Five hoss thifves had oper ated for five days before the Vigilantes huno' them, and had stolen twenty-eight heaiTof stock. How many hosses a day did each hoss-thief steal? K)ne and tliree-twenty-tifths of a boss!' Right, and if any man says you ain't, don't take it from him, if he's as big as a grain-elevator. Now, mister man, trot out yourclass in moral philosophyl" Chic. m A Wonderful Lake in Iowa. Barlington Hawkeye. The greatest wonder in the State of Iowa, and perhaps in any other State, is what is called tho Walled Lake, in Wright county, twelve miles north of the Dubuque aud Pcciiic Railway, and 150 miles west of Dubuque City. The lake is two or three feet higher than the earth's surface. In some places the wall is ten feet high, fifteen feet wide at the bottom and five feet wide at the top. Another fact is the size of the stone used in its construction, the whole of them varying in weight from three tons down to 100 pounds. There is an abundance of stones in Wright county, but surrounding the lake to the extent of five or ten miles there are none. No one can form an idea of the means em ployed to bring them to the spot or who constructed it. Around the entire lake is a belt of woodland half a mile in length, composed of oak. With this exception the country is a rolling prai rie. The trees must have been planted there at the time of the building of the wall. In the Spring o'. the year 1850 there was a great storm, and the ice on the lake broke the wall in several places, and the farmers in tlio vacinity were obliged to repair the damages to prevent inundation. The lake occupies a ground surface of 2,800 acres; depth of water as great as twenty-five feet. The water is clear and cold, soil sandy and loamy. It is singular that no one has been able to ascertain where the water comes from or where it goes, yet it U alwavi clear and fresh. WAIFS. A basRet full of onions will not hoU water, because it is full of leeks. The Cincinnati Art Club is doing finely. Six more pork-packers have joined. Philadelphia Xetcs.
