1m The Devil Gone T
ed
a
[Br Key. F. W. Pauker. ]
I sometimes,think, as think I must,
How modern people do;
And how they struggle hard, to bust
The devil plum In too.
Our fathers would write In their creed,
The devil lived alway ;
But moderns want their creed to read:
The devil has gone away.
And while I spend my time to think,
These thoughts come in my mind ;
And here I would not have you shrink,
But read these thoughts you'll find.
The devil Is gone, as some would say,
He cannot catch our soul.
But who Is he that leads away
And many don't control t
Just who It is, I fain would know.
That sits with fiendish grin.
And sees so many people sow
Such fearful seeds of sin ?
Yes, who was he that taught the lie,
The Hindoo wife believes—
That with her husband she could die.
Her angry god to please f
The Ganges river Is the place,
Where many a babe Is thrown ;
And can yon tell me how that place
And fearful lie became known.
That If the babe was sick or poor.
The Hindoo mother thought
Her god with her was angry sure.
And then the deed was wrought.
O. who was he, I want to know.
That did in days gone by,
Rejoice to see poor matters burn
And harmless people die !
Come, who Is he that fills a man
With a fearful greed of gain,
'Till he becomes one of that van
That leads a life of shame ?
And 'till he'll stand behind the bar.
And not disdain to sell
What ruins young men near and far.
And sends them down to hell ?
And 'till his neighbor's blood he'll spill
In a cruel shameful way.
That he might fill hts coffers full.
Ah, who is he, I say t
The devil is gone, still some will say.
But a question more I'd ask—
And now y ou will not say me nay.
.Vs I resume the task.
Tell who It is that fires the young
With passions to do wrong,
Until their parents' hearts are wrung
As weak ones by the strong Î
Those parents who In life did try *
To guide youth's steps aright.
Have their parental heart stung
By the one they thought so bright.
There's many a mother's heart broke
By sins of daughters bold.
The foul felnd that fell that stroke.
His name is left untold.
O, who is he, once more I'd ask,
That gives that man a thrust
For that which ruias soul at last.
And makes his life a-cursed !
For that which makes his wife wear
A weary careworn look,
Has blighted all hopes so fair.
Her husband from her took ?
Of questions more but grant me one,
And answer me I pray.
Who's the fellow that carries his business on
If the devil is gone away !

Go where you will they stare
the observers in the face. The
following are specimens for ad
vertisements in our great dailies:
For Rent—Two rooms furnish
ed with a young widow.
Also the following harrowing
announcement :
Wanted—Four girls to strip in
a tobacco factory.
A lady who is desirous of dis
posing of some of her property
advertises :
For Sale—A piano by a lady
with carved legs.
They were an enterprising
firm so they advertised their
laundry business :
For nice bosoms go to the
Misses Jones, only 10 cents.
A reporter wrote :
"Several dogs were shot in
west end.
And so it goes.
A farmer who wished to enter
some animals at an agricultural
exhibition, wrote as follows to
the secretary : "Enter me for
a jackass."
A Nevada paper advertises for
a first-class saddle horse for a
lady that is young and gentle
and easy to ride.
The proprietor of a bone mill
advertises those sending their
own bones to be ground will be
attended to with punctuality and
; dispatch.
A recent advertisement in a
country paper reads thus: "For
sale, a bull-terrier dog, two years
old. Will eat anything; very
fond of children. Apply at this
office."
A man came into the office the
other day and thus addressed us
at the desk: "How y-ou vas to
day-, I hope ? I want for to ad
vertise my leetle tog on der

Philipi Gossi, of East Fork, has
the contract for hauling ore, and
Frank DelFVea for furnishing
coal.* Hoisting machinery is en
route, and when it arrives, a
shaft is to be run down at the

cross-cutting—anyway it is re
ported that the mine is to be
prospected from this point in a
most thorough manner. We are
more than pleased to see that
Mr. Clark and Mr. Brown have
taken hold of this property, for
the reason that, if there is a lead
in the mountain there, they are
more likely to find it than any
one, who has ever taken hold of
it. So much showing surely
must come from an immense lead;
and, once shown up, Custer
county and, especially Lost Riv
