A Beautiful Poem. Read by Eld George Gowen at the funeral of Miss Minnia West. IF I SHOULD DIE TONIGHT. II I should die tonight My friends would look upon my quiet face Before they laid It it its last resting place, And deem that death had left it almost fair And, laying sno -white flowers against my hair, Would smooth It down with tearful tenderness, And fold my hands with lingering caress Poor hands, so empty and so cold to-night; If I should die tonight My friends would call to mind with loving thought. Some kindly deed that my icy hands had wrought, Some gentle word the frozen lips had said; Errands on which the willing feet had sped; The memory of my selfishness and pride, My hasty words, would all be put aside, And I should be lov d to-night. If I should die to-night Even hearts estranged would turn once more to me. Recalling other days remorsefully. The eyes that chill me with averted glance Would look upon me as of yore, perchance, And soften, In the old familiar way; For who could war with dumb, nnconcions clay? So I might rest, forgiven of all, to-night. Oh, friends, I pray to-night, Keep not your kisses for de id, cold brow; The way is lonely. let me feel them now. Think gently of me; I am travel-wor.i; My faltering feet are pierced with many a thorn; Forgive, ob, hearts estranged, forgive, I plead; When dreamless rest Is mine, I snail not need The tendernesa for which I long to-aight.

Venus, as a punish ment, ordered Cupid to inspire Psyche with a love for the most contemtible of mortals. Cupid, however, when he met Ps3che fell in love with her at once.

And at night she arose and look ed upon Cupid and to her delight saw tha most lovely 01 faces, but a drop of oil fell from her lamp and awoke Cu pid. She fled and arrived at the palace of Venus, who kept her as a slave. l or her urntle obedience and silent attention Venus consented to Psyche becoming united to Cupid. Leisure Hours. WhioTi is riRftar. to thoroughly cleanse and purify the blood just . if i:ui now, or muKo yuuiBtJii jiuuiu w the , many dangerous ailments which are so prevalent during summer?

A thorough course of Swift's Specific is needed to cleanse the blood and puri fy the system, toning up and strengthening it all over.

A fact often overlooked, or not al ways understood, ia that women suffer as much from distressing kidney and bladder troubles as the men. ihe womb is situated back of and very close to the bladder, and for that reason any distress, disease or inconvenience man ifested in the kidneys, back, bladder or urinary passage is often, by mistake, attributed to female weakness or womb trouble of some sort. The error is easily made and may be as easily avoided by setting urine aside for twenty-four hours ; a sediment or settling is evidence that your kidneys and bladder need doctoring. If you have pain or dull aching in tbe back, pass water too frequently, or scanty supply, with smarting or burning, these are also convincing proofs of kidney trouble. If you have doctored without benebt, try Dr. .Kilmers Swamp-Hoot, the great kidney remedy. the mild and tbe extraordinary effect will surprise you. It stands the high est for its wonderful cures.
