Like is the damask roie you see, Or like the bloiioni on the tree, Or like the dainty flower in May, Or like the morning of the j, Or like the sun or like the shade, Or like the gourd which Jonah had E en ueh a man whose thread it pun, Drawn out and cut, and io is done. The rose withers, the blossom blast etb, The flower fades, the morn hastcth, The sun sets, the shadow flies. The gourd consumes and man he dies. Like to the grass that's newly sprung, Or like a tale that's new begun, Or like the bird that's here today, Or like the pearled dew of May, Or like an hour or like a span, Or like the singing f a swan E'en such is man who lives by breath, 'Is here, now there, in life and death. The gras withers, the tale is ended, The bird is flown, the dew' ascend ed, The hour is short, the span is long, The swan's near death man's life is doi.e! Like to the falling of a star, Or as the flights of eagles are, Or like the fresh spring's gaudy hue, Or silver drops of morning dew, Or like a wind that chafe's the flood, Or bubbles which on water stood E'en such a man, whose borrowed light, Is straight called in and'naid tonicht. The wind blews, the bobble dies. The spring entombed in autumn lies, 1 be clew dries up; the star is shot, The flight is past and man forgot. SIMON WASTHLL. W. L.

(The MSS. of this poem, which appeared during the first quarter of the present century, was aid to have been found In the Muneum of the Hoyal College of Surgeons, in Lon dou, near a perfect hnman skeleton, and to have been sent ISy the curator to the Morning Chronicle for publi cation. It excited to much attention that every effort ' t made todiscov er the author, and a responmble par ty went so fur as to offer of 5U guin eas for information that would dis cover its origin. The author pre served bis incognito, and, we believe, h.is Dtvtr been discovered. Behold this ruin! "f was a skull Once of etberial spirit full, This narrow tell was life's retreat, This space was thought's mysterious seat. What beauteous visions filled this spot, What dreams of pleasure long forgot? Nor hoie, nor joy, nor love, nor fear Have left one tract of record here. Beneath this moulding canopy Onct shone the bright and buny eye, But start not at the dismal void If social love that eye employed, If with no lawless fire it gleamed, But through the dews of kindness beamed, That eye shall bt forever bright When stars and sun are sunk in night. Within this hollow cavern bung. The ready, sift and tuneful tongue; If falsehood's honey is disdained, And when it could not praise was chained; If bold in virtue's cause it spoke. Yet gentle coicord never broke This silent tongue shall plead for thee. When time unveils eternity. Say, did these fingers delve the mine? Or with the envied rubies shine? To hewthe rock or wear a gem Can little now avail to them. But if the page jf truth they sought, Or comfort to the mourner brought, These hands a richer meed shall claim Than all that wait on wealth and tame. Avails it whether bare or shod These feet the paths ot duty trod? If from the bowers of ease they fled, To seek affliction'! humble shed; If grandeur's guilty bribe they spurned, And home to virtue's cot returned These feet with angel wings shall vie. And tread the palaces of the sky, Anonymous. Wise Word The head is more a skeptic than the heart. Salvation is more than a moral reformation. The pruned limb is seldom the one that dies. He insults his nobler self, who mocks at prayer. Only the boor thinks it un manly to say "thank you.', It our eyes were brighter, the tars would be brighter. Utilise even the thorns in your path, but not tor a pil low. A wise man's mistakes are the capital of his experience. Disposition is the mint that coins our comforts or their counterfeits. . Monopoly throws gold dust in the eyes ot politicians, to blind them. To err is human." That is sound doctrine; nor is it hard to live up to. Demagogues can talk patriot ism but it takes a man to live it and vote it. The greatest deeds are done by those who are the least conscious. $100.00 in Gold Given Away.

Written for the News: It was a warm day month of October and in the a largo crowd wan Bitting around the vil- j ine swore spinning yarns, some spoke of adventures with wild j beasts, others were relating sketch I tsot Western life. ''Now boys, j said (ins, '"if you will give me jour j attention lm- h while I will tell you how i lived fifteen years in twenty minute onro. It wan in the month of March, 1875. I was at work for James Hayes, a railroad contractor, rolling wli eel barrows, and we liv ed in a camp, a very rude log cabin. The camp was on the bank of the Emory River, and at this time we were vry much crowded for house room and more space was an ob ject. So one morning Mr. Hayesl catne out on the grade and asked if there was, a man on the job who could make board. As everybody kept quiet and I did not want to stand there like a niutnmy krow ing that 1 was a professional board maker, I kpoke up and said. "Yes, boss; you bet there it!" "Well," said Mr, Hayes, "point him oui!" So I just stepped out of the pit and pointed to myself. He said; ' Now my man, are you sure you can rive boards good and fast as I am coin pelled to have more shanties erect ed right away." "Yes sir. I am darn Bure I oan rive them, from one to a hundred thouiaml a fast hs the fastest and tun good as the best." "Well, now." he sivs. "I will give you two men to cut a;:d saw." So he i'd a man by the name ol George Rogers and n no urb to go with me. We started and weut east of the camp about nquartiT of a mile iilo a deep, dmk gulch, running north and south, and it was a wild looking place, too, and don't you forget it. We hau to go through this dismal place Then we went around the end of a topless looking mountain so far n I could ten. Well, we ar rived at this place, cut the trees and sawed the timbor, and arrang ed everything for board making next dav. and Rogers and the negro cawed enough timber and went liack to the camp, and then I was at my profession in great shape. On the 3rd about noon as I sup poted, for I had been at work very hard and was hungry, I concluded to eat a bite. As it was cold and a snow was on the ground, I bad built a fire to thaw my timber and warm my feet. So 1 had picked up my dinner pail, turned over a cut, and was sitting eating my din ner, when my ear caught the sound of a crush, crush behind me. I turned and looked, and saw a sight that froze the blood in my vein?. Out of a denfe murel thick et, a wild-eyed, long, ugly creature was advancing on me. I was in a pickle. 1 felt for my pistol, but as I did so remembered I bad left it at home. To bt continued Dixie Ilyeb. A OOOD LETTER From the Clerk of the droit Court Fkrnandina, Fla., Feb. 28,1896.
