BY I flARLES DICKENS. aid The pure, the bright, the beautiful, That stirred our hearts in youth, The impulses of wordless prayer, The dreams of love and truth; The longings after something lost, The spirit's yearning cry, The striving after better hope«— These things can never die. The timid hand stretched forth to A brother in his need, A kindly word in grief's daik hour That proves a friend indeed; The plea for mercy softly breathed, When justice threatens nigh The sorrow of a contrite heart— These things shall never die. The memory of a clasping hand, The pressure of a kiss, And all the trifles, sweet and frail, That make up love's first bliss ; If with a firm, unchanging faith, And holy trust and high, Those hands have clasped, those lips have met— These things shall never die. The cruel and the bitter word, That wounded as it fell ; The chilling want of sympathy We feel, but never tell ; The hard repulse that chills the heart, Whose hopes were bounding high, In an unfading record kept— These things shall never die. Let nothing pass, for every hand Must find some wbrk to do ; Lose not a chanee to waken love— Be firm and just and true. So shall light that cannot fade Beam ou thee from on high, And angel voices say to thee— These things shall never die. is These things shall never die.

The Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, does not lack resourcefulness. He of thus writes to a friend of one his latest undertakings: "My ability as mayor to accom plish something for the single tax cause is growing on me. Opportu nities seem to be opening up. For iustauce, a board of equalization, having to deal with all classes of property in this city, assessing real and personal property, steam rail roads, street railroads, gas compa nies, etc., is in existence here. This board has never used the power in the past and has generally been filled by very ordinary, if uot cor rupt men. I have discovered that this board is appointed by the may or, two every year, they holdiug office for three years. By some strange accident I am the only mayor in the state of Ohio that has this appointing power. The first two vacancies would have occurred the 16th of next July, but that was too far off for my purposes. I have, therefore, found pleasant and profit able occupation for four of these men in other city positions, and now I am appointing four out of the six who can be absolutely relied on against all temptations, and the other side has just waked up to the fact that this board may raise Cain. Whether they will attempt to legislate it out of existence next January at Columbus, or have the supreme court declare the law un. constitutional, I do not know nor do I care; the damage will probab ly be done before they can act. I expect to put $100,000,000 on our tax duplicate. It is now less than $200,000,000, and if this process does not raise the dead in this lo cality, I very much miss my guess." Seven Years in Bed.

It is a grab which in its possibilities extends to all the cities of the state. Senator Quay is the leader of this cynical assault upon public rights. Under his direction a new kind of railway bill was "jammed" through the legislature and signed by the governor. It provided in general terms for the incorporation and re gulation of street railway companies —for elevated, underground or sur face purposes, or all these—giving to them the right of eminent do main. This right, with reference to particular property, attaches by the laW to the corporation first claiming it in its charter and de scribing tfte property it requires. Before the public was aware of this new law, Quay's pirates had filed charters covering the streets of scores of Pennsylvania cities. If the law holds, they thereby acquir ed the first right to condemn those streets for street railroad purposes, and the right will be good for seven years without being used at all. In other words, these charters have now a salable valne, as mere legal rights to blackmail cities. Among the charters were 14 for Philadel phia, covering every feasible trac tion route—surface, elevated and underground—in the fraternal city. — The Publie. !

New York, Jnue 25.— Frau k A I Vanderlip, formerly assistant sec retary of the treasury, who lias just returned to Washington from a long trip abroad, is quoted by the Tribune correspondent as say in S : "I think it is not only possible, but highly probable that European powers will agree in binding terms of trade combination against us within the next few years, and that the result will be the most gigan tic and stubborn commercial war in the history of the world. As most of our commercial treaties expire in 1903, I look for the real begin ning of the war then in a refusal of most of the continental nations to renew those conventions. "At the present moment Austria, which never did like us, is leading the movement against the United States, and 1 found Goluchowski, head of the ministry of that coun try, our bitterest foe. Obviously, the other ministries of the old world, including England, are art fully encouraging Uolouehowski in his course with a view of draw ing our fire before they openly de clare themselves. "For the immediate future our trade prospects were never brighter in Enrope. There has been al most a total crop failure in Ger many. The agricultural outlook is only a little better in France, and even in England the crop yield is not promising. In Russia there are loud professions of friendship for the United States, and one hears many expressions of admira tion of our commercial develop ment and methods. The Russians are modeling their tariff system after ours, and in a few years will try to apply it with vigor and severity against all nations alike, but particularly against the United States."

Va., Juue '2->.— The following story is told by an eye-witness of t lie great flood at Keystvne, W. Va., on the 23d : "Keystone is the metropolis of the Elkhorn mining country. It lias but one narrow street and be cause of limited space many build ings were built on piles or walls over the Elkhorn or close up against the mountains. The town follows the meanderings of the stream for a mile. "On Friday night at 11 o'clock the storm struck the mountain and for six hours rain descended in torrents. At daybreak the thou sands of people along the Elkhorn and its tributaries realized that a great flood was upon them, but they little suspected the disaster soon to follow. By 9 a. m., the narrow valley was a raging, seeth ing, angry torrent. Houses, barus, bridges, fills, live stock and human beings were swept away by the mighty current and dashed on the rocks or trees below. "I was an eye-witness of the dis aster at Keystone, being a guest at the National Hotel. This hotel faces the mountain with a narrow spot between it and the buildingon the mountain side of the street. At the first warning many of the in habitants took refuge on the moun tain side overlooking the town and river. More than a hundred people, however, remained in the town to look after the women and children who did not escape early. The bridge leading to the depot was soon swept away, then the angry waters rushed through the only street in the town and we found hundreds cut off from the mountain retreat and the hotel was made fast to the telephone poles by means of a line. Hundreds of lives were saved. But in attempting to cross the muddy, surging waters which swept like an avalanche down this street many lost their hold and in plain sight of friends were carried on iuto the river and drowned. Houses plunged and danced in the mighty stream, with sereamiug wo men and children on the roofs. Horses, cattle and other animals went down iu droves and singly struggling for life.

It is a curious spectacle for the survivors of the party in England which stood by the Ameri can republic in the day of distress, and was fiercely villified by tin torv party for so doing, hut such is the fashion of the world. Our own tories, much less than a gener ation ago, would not tolerate the sight of the American (lag on this side of the line. What will they say now? If the American can be flattered and cajoled out of commer cial competition, a great diplomatic triumph will have been gained. — "Bystander" (l'rof. (loklwin Smith), in Toronto Weekly Sun.

NewYork,June23.—The World's Paris cable says : The statue of Napoleon, which adorned the top of the Vendôme column, when, during the reign of the Paris commune, the populace pulled dowu the " Ungodly memo rial standing in stupid glorification of war," was accidentally fished out of the Seine after a mysterious dis appearance of thirty years. When the Vendôme column was re-erected a new statute had to be provided. The Empress Eugenie, who is uow iu Paris, said to the World corre spondent : "When the communists prepared to overturn the huge bronze monument, the Marquis De Cystroue resolved to save the statue from destruction. During the night before he bribed three workmen to rig up great derricks and had the statue lowered and carried to the river and sunk. The Marquis was shot among other hostages held by the communists and therefore, though I kuew that the statue of the founder of our dynasty was sunk in the river I was ignorant of the exact spot." The relic has been taken in charge by the state commission for the preservation of historical land marks, of which this is considered the masterpiece.

Un questionably, the people of the civilized world by a large majority, sympathize with these hardy he roes, but the governments of the earth will not take any step to thwart the intentions of Great Britain. The Boers are uow look ing to the Hague Peace tribunal, but in vain, for England only con sented to the tribunal oti condition that no question concerning the South African Republics should be considered by it, thus showing that England at this time made no secret of her intention to subjugate those people whenever she wits ready to undertake the task."

It' there are Americans who are too busy in the chase for the dollar to realize the dangers ittvolvefi in the supreme court's decisions in the Porto Itican case, they may with out great mental effort obtain an analysis of that decision as made by an Englishman. TheLondonDailyNews, comment ing upon the Porto Itican case, says it was the most important de cision which this tribunal has ever been called upon to make. It re gards this decision as "A curious issue to 120 years of triumphant democracy." Then the News adds: "It is not progress, but retro gression ; not the advancement of humanity, but that disheartening product of our times—the militar ism of a democracy. We venture to think that the framers of the United States constitution would have laughed at the possibiltty of such a development as incredible. The decisions have extricated Pres ident McKinley from an uncommon ly awkward position, but is a la mentable headlong fall in the mor al scale and a turning of the back on all that has been the special glory aud distinction of the United States in order to join in the bar baric scramble for the waste places of the earth." Not progress, but retrogression, not humanity, but militarism—not the passing of another milestone in the path of civilization, but "a lamentable, headlong fall in the moral scale and a turning of the back on all that has been the spec ial glory and distinction of the United States in order to join in the barbaric scramble for the waste places of the earth !" Americans who can realize the truth of this arraignment must feel even more humiliated because of the source whence it comes. The Porto Rican decision was indeed a "curious issue to 120 years of triumphant democracy."—T/ir Commoner. Dyspeptics cannot be long lived because to live requires nourishment.

This well is the property of A. A. Bonvillain & Co. and Mr. John Foqlkes has charge of the drilling operations. Mr. Foolkes is an ex perienced machinist and inventor of Houma, aud had his machinery specially constructed for this work. The drilling operations will be open to the public, and the results will be given to the press. The Houma Oil and Mining Com pany will start their drill next week, the shipment of portions of their machinery having been de layed by the manufacturers, but is now on its way, and will be in position this week. The latest reports from the Bush well are that very little progress has been made in the last two or three weeks, owing to accidents. Lirette gas well is receiving con siderable attention. Water taken from this well bas a strong odor of petroleum, and shows indications of oil when allowed to settle. This well is situated on a natural eleva tiou corresponding to Spindle Top, and parties interested in oil devel opments are anxious to see this developed. It is owned by the Le Datiois Oil and Mineral Company, of Terrebonne. Call at Lee's drug store and get a free sample of Chamberlain's .Stomach and Liver Tablets. They are an elegant phy sic.
