The recent lynchiug of a negro

The extra session of the Ken

Mitute for the Geoble election

Hou. John Sherman, former
Representative in the House for
a long term, member ot the
Senate and twice holding Cabinet
positions, died at his home in
Washington City at 7 o'clock the
morning of the 22d in the seven
tieth eight year of his age. The
immediate cause of death wh de
scribed hb brain exhaustion. In
private life Mr. Sherman was
known is a ohrewd business
man, whose liab'ts of industry,
thrilt and economy h.ul built up
n large fortune and fo him the
r.iition's IlimiMM'N were fine' iir

If we only do what it pleases
us to do, or what is easy to ac
complish, what reward have wo.
And should I write, it is not be
cause it ia an easy task, but be
caaso you ask mo, and should I
pencil only idle, thoughtless
words, the golden moments that
bav been given me are wasted
and jour precious time wasted
also ."should you peruso them.
Then what shall 1 write! I can
not, like Jules Verne or Rider
lluggard, bring the imagination:
into play, for it is not the myth
ical but tho real in life that takes
hold ou 'my mind. It is true the
study of mythology had quite a
facination for me; in my school
days, but I sometimes wish there
had never been any myths, for
even now that I have reached the
I fnrluilli rnilml in 1hi blddpr of
years, the mythical and real
in history become contused in my
mind, and I wonder, should it ever
be my good fortune to sail the
billowy deep, if I would not find
myself peeping out of tho port
hole expecting to see old Xeptune,
ti real live god of the sea with
his trident in his hand presiding
over the waters. Hut were there
no such thing as mythology,
Poesy would lose one of its great
est charms. But it id not myths
but the real things that come un
der my observation of which I
propose to write.'
And I am reminded of a little
incident that came to me curing
my recent visit in Fvansville
which bears on the idea that
what we possess does not belong
to us but to God. A bright little
boy of four summers went to eeo
bis little friend, and in the course
of the evening said to his host
"whose house is this," and of
course tho reply was, "its my
house." "So," mM the little
questioner, "it is not your house,
it belongs to Cod and ho has
just loaned it to you to live in
A great many people get the
idea into their heads that all good
thingB no matter how sweet ou
the out side aro bitter within.
They will not enter heartily iuto a
day's enjoyment, fearful they will
have to pay for it ou the morrow.
While reading a tew eveniugs
past the following paragraph
came nuder my .view, and which
1 think is worth reprinting: ''A
reverent quiet manner should be
observed when in a church. It
us not good form to talk or
to introduce people while there
Nothing is more inappropriate to
occasion or place than talking,
whispering, giggling or exchang
ing greetings when walking down
a church aisle after service on
Sunday. It is proper to wait
for all conversation until outside
of the building. One should re
member that church-goiug is not
for social purposes."
A great many theoriea or idens
are advanced about Heaven, what
it is or how we will enjoy it. Uut
the predominant thought with me
always is that supreme love will
abound there. There will bo no
restraining of the feelings, but
love to the fullest, widest, deep
est extent of the word. Here re
pulses aud frigidity of manner are
so often met with that one longs
for a clime of perpetual love and
As Allhallowtide approaches
merry chestnutting parties are
scampering through the woods
bursting tho bristling burs aud
and rolling out the plump and
bouncing chestnut to bo roasted
on the night of the 31st. On this
night, it, is believed bv the super
stitious, that witches and hobgob
lins are out for a frolic and though
our young folk are not supcrstii
ous, yet they enjoy a little diver
sion, iu which the wierd and un
canny is a predominant feature,
and no dcubt next Wednesday
night many a merry party will in
dulge in a midnight seance, with
lights turned low and an ominous
silence pervading, peering into
tho mystic future, tempting the
Fates to spin life's threads of
brightest gold and silvery sheen,
and to long withhold the knife that
