Tho following Bno poem, which Jitack
wood't Magazine has pronounced to be the
bust lyric of the century, is by George W.
Cutter, of Covitgton, Kentucky :
Harness mo down with your iron bands,
lie sure of your curb and rein,
For I scorn the power of your puny hands
As a tempest scorns a chain.
How 1 laughed as 1 lay concealed from
For many n counties hour,
At the childish boasts of human might,
And tliu pride ol human power.
When I saw an army upon the land,
A navy upon the sens,
Creeping along, n snail-like band,
Or waiting a wayward breeze:
AVhen 1 saw the peasant reel
With the toil that he faintly bore,
As ho turned nt the tardy wheel,
Or toiled at the weary oar I
When I measured the panting courser's
Tho fliitht of the carrier-dove,
As they bore a law the kingdecroed.
Or the lines of impatient love,
I could but think how the world would feel
As theso were outstripped afar,
Whn I should be hound to tho rushing
Or chained to tho (lying ear.
Hal ha! ha! they found meat last,
They invileil me forth at length,
And 1 rushed tu my tlnone with a thunder
And 1 laughed in my iron strength.
Oh ! then yo saw a wondrous change
On tho earth and ocean wide,
Whero now inv fiery ruiics range,
Nor wait for wind nT tide.
Hurrah I hurrah! the waters o'er,
The mount-tin steep decline:
Time space have iclded to my power
The world ! the world is mine!
Tee rivers the sun hat i enriipst blest.
Or those where lii beams decline,
Tho giant streams of tho queenly West,
Or the Orient floods divine.
The ocean pules wherever I sweep,
To hear my strength rejoice,
And monsters of the briny deep
Cower trembling at my voice.
I carry the wealth an 1 ore of earth,
The thought of Ond like mind;
The wind Ian at':et my going forth,
The lightning i left behind.
In the darksomo depths of the fathomless
My tireless arms doth play;
"Where the rocks ne'er saw the sun's de
cline. Or tho light of tho glorious day ;
I bring earth's !i tenng jewels up
From the hidden cave below.
And 1 make the fountain's granite cup
With a crystal gu-h o'erti w.
I blow the bellows, I forge the steel,
In all the -hups of trade ;
I hammer the ore and turn the wheel
Where my aims i f strength are made;
I managethe furnace, tho mill, tho mint,
I carry, I siiin, 1 weave,
And all'my doings I put in print
On every Saturday eve.
I've no tnutili s to (ury nohreuth to decay
No b Hies to he hid on the icll',
And soon I intend you may go and play,
While 1 manage the world myself.
But harness medown with your iron band',
liesureof your curb and rein.
For I -coin the strength of puny hands,.
As the teuuie.-i scorns the chain.
I live for tlm,e who love mo,
I'nr those 1 kuow are (ru,
Forth? heaven that smiles above me,
An) awaits mv ;iril, loo;
Koi iiii humiii ties that b;nd me,
For the task by trod assigned ijjc,
For the bright hopes Mi tchind me,
And the good that lean do.
1 live to mrr, tbe'r story.
Who've suffered for my sake,
To eumluin tneir glory,
Aii'l f 'lie in tueir wake :
Hards, inartys, patriots, sages,
The. uobtn of all ai;c,
Whose deels crown history's pages,
And time's great volume make.
I live to hail that SHasmi,
By g fted minds foretold,
When men shall live by reason,
And not alone by gold
When man to man united,
And every wrong thing righted,
The whole world shall be lighted.
As Eden was of old.
I live to hold communion
With all that is divine,
To feel there is a union
'Twixt natute's heart and mine,
To profit by atlliction,
Heap truths from Holds of fiction,
Grow wiser from conviction,
And fuluill'eacb great design.
I live for those who love toe,
For those who know me true,
For the heaven that smiles above me,
And awaits my spirit, too ;
For the wrongs ihut neel resistance,
For the cause that lacks a-sisunce,
For the future in the distance.
And the good that I can do.
A Kentucky Bridal Tour.
There came one d iy to a little, inland
town in Kentucky, a young rural couple
who had just b. en bound by trie "silken
bonds." Their destination was the depot,
and the bridegroom was evidently quite
imi'itlient for b ar the train should arrive
before he could reach the ollice. Huying
one ticket, they stood on the platform until
the train had slopped
When they entered the ear the bride
groom found" Ids bride u seat, kissed her
most atl'ectionately, bade her "good-bye,"
and goiiiK out, seated himself on a box nnd
cuiiiiiier,ei-dvhitlling most vigorously. He
watched the train out of sight, regret do.
picled on bis face, when a uystader,
thinking the whole proceeding rather
strange, reoived to interview him. Ap
proaching him carelessly, and chewing a
straw to keep up bis courage, ho said :
"Keen gettin' married lately?"
"Yes," said he. "me and Kallie got
spliced this mornin'."
" Was that her you put on tho train?"
" Yes," with a sigh.
" A likely lookin gal," said our question
er. "Anybody sick, that she had to go
" No," but here he grew confidential.
" You see me and Sallie had heard that
everybody when they got married took a
bridal tour. So I told Sallie 1 hadn't mon
ey enough for both of us to go, hut she
shouldn't be knocked out of hern. Sol
just brought her down here, bought her
ticket and tent her on a visit to some of her
folks, and thought I might get Koine work
barvestin' till she got back.1'
That afternoon found bim busily at work,
and w hen in a day or two after Bailie came
back, be welcomed her cordis Illy and af
fectionately, and band in bandthey started
down the dusty road to their new bom
and duties.
A Young Man Who Wants Advice.
Dotroit Free Press 1
It was the second time that he hnd ac
companied tho young lady home from one
of those little social parties which uro got
ten up to bring fond hearts a step nearer
to each other.
When they reached tho gate she asked
him if ho wouldn't come in. Ho said he
would, and he followed hor into tho house.
" It was a calm, still night," nnd tho hour
was so late that he had no fear of seeing
tho old folks. (Sarah took his hat, told
him to sit down, and she left the room to
lay on" her things. She was hardly gone
before her mother came in, smiled sweetly,
and dropping down besido the young man
she said :
" I always did say that if a poor but re
spectable young man fell in love with
Sarah he should have my consent. Home
mothers would sacrifice their daughter's
happiness for riches, but I am not one of
that class."
The young man gavo a stirt of alarm.
He did not know whether he liked Sarah
or not, and be hadn't dreamed of such a
thing as marriage.
"She has acknowledged to me that she
love you," continued the mother, "and
whatever is for her happiness is for mine."
The young man gave two starts of alarm
this time, and ho fell his cheeks grow pale.
"I I haven't ," he stammered,
when she said :
" Oh, never mind. I know you haven't
much monev, but of course you will live
with me. We'll take in boarders, and I'll
risk but that we'll get alone all right."
It was a bad situation. He hadn't even
looked love at Sarah, and he fell that he
ought to undeceive the mother.
"1 hadn't no idea of -of " he stam
mered, shell she hel l up her hands and
said :
"I know you hadn't, but it is all right.
With your wages and what the boarders
bring in we shall get along as snug as bugs
in a rug."
" Hut. madam, but but "
" All I ask is that you be good to her,"
interrupted the mother. "Sarah has n
tender heart and a loving nature, and if
vou should be cross and ugly it would
break hor down within a week."
The young man's eyes stood out like co
cobnuts in a show-window, and he rose up
and tried to say something. He said:
', Great heavens 1 madam, 1 can't per
mit "
" Never mind about the thanks," she in
terrupted. " I don't believo in lone court
ships myself, and let me suggest mi early
day for the marriage. The eleventh of
September is my birthday, and it would bo
nice for you to be married on that day."
" Hut but but " he gasped.
" Tnere, thero, I don't expect any spooeh
in reply," she laughed. "You and Sarah
fix it up to night, and I'll advertise for
twelve boirders right away. I'll try nnd
be a model mother-in-law. I believe I am
good-tempered and kind-hearted, though I
did once follow a young man two hundred
miles and shoot the top of his head off for
agreeing to marry Sarah and then jump
ing the county I'1
She patted him on the head and sailed
out, and now the young man wants ad
vice. He wants to know whether he had
better iret in the way of a locomotive or
slide ctl the wharf.
Inflation, as it is now preached 1 y the
modern Democracy, is filly illmtraled by
thb able Grosvenor, of Missouri, whose
able speech is only answered by the oppo
sition bv h thv abuse. He says:
The lender Iuukiis as ne forecloses nis
mortiraiies. and tru-ts that our great Amer
ican financiers, the invaluable friends of
tho poor man, may aive us one more trial
of cheap monev. H" likes to lend in Hush
times, with eold at I V). and to call in hi
loans in hard times, with troll at 111), lie
prays for more money and another fool s
paradise, l'es. let us vote down specie
payments, as England did in ISM. Vio
lent changes followed: paper rose nnd fell
a) per cent., aid that land is not yet free
from the terrible concentration and tyran
ny of wealth then produced. Kight years
of continual diator taught the- needed les
son; must we aUo sutler more before we
learn ? Let us try more u oney, as tho Chi
nese did more than a thousand years ago.
Let us try more money, as our fathers did.
In 1TS0 the thril'tv barber of Philadelphia
economized hi! papered tho walls of his
shop with continental money. Yet, seven
years later, lihode Island had another kind
of money, which the farmers, when thuy
paid debts, took to town' in pillow-cases.
Lot us try it again as France did, until a
pound of butter cost fK))f($l"ll) and a hack
ride 000 livres ($1,2001. Let us try it again
as the Confederates did. l'ostoflice clerks
resigned because they could not support
life on $'J,0O0a year, and a pound of coffee
cost $30. Remedy, more money! Then a
hootseller in Richmond could not break a
$600 bill, the hoots costing $'200, and the
burersaid. " Never mind tha change; it is
not worth while to let a little matter of $:S00
stand in the way of trade." Remedy, more
money ! I hen a handful of beet cost a bas
kettul or dollars, and a gold dollar was
worth $12,500 in imper. Finally society
relansed into barter, and the doctor sent to
his friend for "ten or twenty visits worth of
corn. 1 et there are men wno pretenu
not to know where inflation ends. The
world knows. Nowhere but in the gulf of
Castor Oil.
(From the Detroit Free Pie.-s.l
She had had her mind made up for two or
three days that the boy needed tome castor
oil, but she knew that she must approach
him gently. She placed the bottle w here he
could see it, and when he turned up his nose
she said :
" It's just like honey, my darling."
He seemed to doubt her word, and she
" If you'll take some 1 11 let you go tothe

"Oh, only a spoonfjl, just one spoonful,"
she replied as she uncorked the bottle.
"And you'll give me some sugar, be

"Of course I wil a big lump."
Ho waited until she began pouring from
the bottle, and then asked :
"And you'll give lue ten cents, too?''
" Yes, of course."
" And you'll buy me a shoo-fly kilo ?" he
went on, seeing his advantage.
" I guess So."

A Good Hope.
Hope Id the winged oplrit which is
always elnglug to us out of heaven of a
possible which lit better than any pos
itive, the standing contradiction, tothe
proverb all the age" cry aflame on, that
a bird In the band is worth two Id the
liuali. There Id no heart-whole man
or woman on tliU earth, to-day, who
ran truly say that a hope come to auch
fruition aa earth ana time allow ever
began to be so good as the aliy, aweet
glow of a hope newly rlaen. Thi, at
least, has eertHinly been my own ex
perience. My one lniierial LlesMng
all my life has) been a certain eager,
tremulous otilookfng. few meu nave
bad a happier fortune than liaa fallen
to my lot ; but If that could be which
God hasi saved us from in liin Infinite
love If an angel from heaven could
say; " You cau come into fruition at
once ; begin again at fifteen, uml have
every slightest wish itistautly fullllled
no waiting for a place until you are
tbirty-six no weary murcli toward
oasis year after year, but fruition at
ouce and forever, which will leave no
room foranlicipatlon, and no need"
I would lieirol heaven to save me from
such a fate as that, and give me still
the old, blessed, buoyant hope that is
not seen. Anil so I say to you, youiiK
met) and women who have still to light
your way, and wonder many a lime
what will come of the light, I know
no more than you do how to answer
that question, no more than I know
how to answer it for myself; but this 1
know, that, if you can bold on to a real,
pure hope, ami follow its lending, thai
is treasure the fruit inn can never equal
between this anil the foot of the great
white throne. Hut it is clear to me
that this blessed belonging of life must
rest again on these sure f uindalious :
First, a true faith in Ood, and second,
a true endeavor in ourselves. For, as
the farmer would be a fool indeed if lie
bewail to plant his corn and expect his
blossoms in November, or if, in these
early summer days, he sat on the stoop
and salt), Here is summer again ; Ma
ture is stirring ; she knows what lo do ;
I need not care; things wi1! come all
right without my trying; I shall have
all I waut and hope for ;" aud as he is
only wise when he seizes on the right
Instant, and, with that on his side,
which means to the farmer that ueaveu
is on his side, bestirs himself, and puts
his whole manhood to the task of
making his hope come true, so in our
whole life this truth holds good and
can never be neglected, or our hope
will be false and vain. There are hosts
of men and women who indulge In the
most winsome dreams of a fair aud
good future, and begin at last to try
for it, when there Is uo more t-ense in
their trying, for this world at least,
than there would be In planting corn
the last of July, and trying for a crop.
Hope thou iu God, the Psalmist cries,
but a hope in God that is not true to
the reveialion h- has made his law is a
lie. Robert Coliyrr.
Florida Oranges.
In nrious parts of Florida, south of lat.
30, especially along the Si. uohn'a and In
dian Rivers, there are immense groves of
wild oranges ; Hartram, in his "Travels,"
mentions having seen in 1703, near Mos
quito Inlet, a ridge about half a mile wide
and forty miles long, which was one dense
orange-grove, interspersed with magnolias
and a few other trees. So thoroughly es
tablished is the tree, and so generally is it
distributed, that many have supposed it to
be indigenous; hut botanists who have in
vestigated the matter regard it as an in
stance of remarkable naturalization, and the
trees as having descended from those which
are known to have been introduced by tho
early Spanish colonists. This wild orange
is bitter, olten called in t loriua tne outer
sweet, and so exceedingly fruitful that a
tree in full bearing is an object of great
beauty; the wild orango lurnisties stocks
on which to bud other varieties, and the
fruit is used to make marmalade. In
Florida there are three methods of estab
lishing an orange-grove: toclcar up a wild
grove, renoving all trees not needed, and
budding with sweet fruit those that remain ;
to take up young wild trees and set them
in nrenareu ground, and there bud them ;
and to raise stocks from seed, bud them in
nursery rows, and when of sufficient size
set them in the plantation, as is practised
with other fruit. Each mothod has its ad
vocates, but it is probable that the last
named, though apparently slower, gives
ultimately better results. Appletnns'

A Touching Story.
A drunkard, who bad run through his
property, returned one night to bis unfin
ished home, lie entered his empty hall.
Anguish was gnawing at bis heart-strings,
and language was inadequate to express his
stont as he entered his wife's apartment.
and there beheld the victims of his appetite
a loving wife and a darling child. Mo
rose and sullen he seated himself, without
a word he could not speak ho could not
look unon them. The mother said to tho
little boy at her side:
"Come, mv dear, it is time to so to bed."
and tho little baby, as usual, knelt by her
lap, and, gazing wistfully into the face of
her suffering parent like a piece of chiseled
statuary, slowly repeated her nightly orison.
When she had finished, the child but four
years old, said to her mother; Dear moth
er. may I otter one more prayer V"
' Yes. ves. mv sweet net. iirav."
"Oh, Ood, spare, oh, spare my dear
puna !'
That prayer was lifted with electric rap
idity to the thnine of (jod. ll was heard on
high; it wa heard on earth. Tho response,
" Amen I ' hurst from the father, and his
heart id' stone became a heart of fle-h. Wife
and child were boili cla-ped to his bosom,
and in penitence he said:
" My child, you have saved your father
from a drunkard s grave."
Next Speaker of the House of Repre
sentatives. The friends of the various candi
dates for Speaker and for clerk of the
House of Representatives appear at
this time to be redoubling their exer
tions. Tiie friends of Mr. Randall for
Speaker speak more confidently than
any of the others, and It la very cer
tain that he has many warm advocates.
But a strong under current is evident
ly setting toward Mr. Kerr. A letter
received here to-day from Pennsylva
nia stales that It is an error to suppose
that Mr. IUndall bas the unanimous
support of the delegation from that
State, and also says that Senator Wal
lace is opposed to him. For the clerk
shin, Mr. Ueorge M. Adams, of Ken
lucky, bas ao far developed the great
est positive atrengtb, but it Is thought
that In the event of Mr. Kerr's elec
tion to tbn speakership the chances of
Mr. Hteveuson Archer, of Maryland,
for clerk would be very fair. Mr. Calk
ini, of the New York World, will be
pressed by the New Yor delegation
for clerk. Special to Jialtimore &un.

The income tax of A. T. Siewart, dur
ing the eight years that lax was in
force, was something over SS00.00O;
and ills individual taxes for the four
years ending with 1874, his personal
tuxes amounted to .-r8SS,22U80. And
Sam. t'ary habitually singles out poor
man with large lamilies, iu his Onio
audiences, aud tells them they pay
more taxes than Mr. Hlawurt does!
This is the sort of vulgar and menda
cious lying resorted to by a candidate
for Lieutenant Governor of the third
State iu the Union. And these ure the

Commenting on Cary's performances
iu the line we havealluded to, the Cin
cinnati! Commerciol says :
It is plainly true that the assertion
that Geueral Cary, has made that Mr.
Stewart does not pay a dollar of gov
ernment tax, is a vulgar falsification,
made up in the course of a deliberate
ettort to arouse the prejudices of the Ig
uoraut, and inflame the passions of the
thoughlless aud the vicious. It may
uot be iuapt to say in this couuectiou
that the foundation of Mr. Stewart's
colossal fortune is the system always
adhered to in his establishment of tell

the quality of goods, so that no matter
how humble or ill-informed a pur
chaser may be, there is no deception

may add that he is investing very
largely in enierprises, most carefully

The Immediate Business Future.
On this subject the new September
hook of the Mercantile Aiienc of Dun,
Harlow & Co., of New York, on the
immediate business fuluie, has the fol
lowing: Whether the expectations which
have been entertained of an Improved
condition of irade lor the present year
are to be realized or not, the next nine
ty days will determine. That these
Hopes or revival Have not been san
guine Is true, liut the disappointment
wmcti may follow their non-fulnll-
ment will tie none the less serious."
After dwelling upon the importance
of the crop movement to the recovery
of business the same authority goes ou
to say :
" TIioukIi it may take many months
to realize this wealth, the operation by
which that realization will he carried
forward ought soon be manifest, and
the probablo lvault pretty definitely
anticipa ed. It is undeniable that
there exists now a very uncertain aud
feverisli condition of tilings that busi
ness In firs' hands is almost at a stand
still, and t nit to induce purchases
something is needed more tangible
than bright prospects, which have too
often proved delusive. We are, there
fore, on the eve of a in ist important
and critical season in the commercial
history of i he country, and close ob
servers will waicli with some anxiety
the indications which the next few
weeks wilt afl'ird."
