There is no b"tter advertisement for a growing town than a proficient and well-conducted organization of this kind. ways en newly-reconstructed Ghosts By A. A. Tanner. The ghosts of those I used to know, Whose earth remains in earth He lew, Come as still as falling snow And whisper to me through the veil. But if I tell it—my, O my! My chums in suspect a lie, And to disprove it some will try, It seems to them an idle talc. Evil ghost it is they sav Who comes round about that wav, The ghosts of Saints off farther stay In parts to mortal man unknown. Familiar spirits thsy must be Who return their friends to see; To tell the truth they are not free, Their liberty is not their own. Such talk as this from those I hear Who are deaf with spiritual ear, They do not know the truth quite clear Which makes a man from errors free. The outer man all know is clay, And when 'tis laid in earth away, The ghost is gone from earth men say Because a ghost they cannot see. Ghosts are present as perfume In an orchard when in bloom, They linger not around the tombs. They walk upon the zephyr's wings. There present here there present there, They can be present anywhere, Unseen as odors in the air, Around their earthly friends they cling. Your mother's ghost and father's too, Unseen are standing near by you To brace you up and pull you through In moment of distressing need. They press upon your mind a thougtht, Hold it with you till it's caught, You that way are spirit taught. But know not how your mind they feed. They touch your feelings with their own When to you it is not known, You may have thought you were alone, Their tender love they make you feel. That you a hapy life may live They warnings never fail to give, Your imperfection they forgive, Your many many faults conceal. 7=r R <4 m .A FITZ « HIGH GRADE WE WISH TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE NOW HAVE THE FITZ SHIRTS FOR SALE IF YOU HAVE WORN FITZ OVERALLS.
