Hampton Will Resign
From Clifton Bank
Rather than withdraw from the
democratic ticket, on which be was
nominated at tl o recent primary elec
tion, Mr Hampton will tender bis
resignation as director ol tbe Clifton
National Bank.
Tbe federal constitution states that
no officer ol trust or profit ucder tbe
federal government is eligible to serve
as a presidential elector. Inasmuch
as National banks are created by fed
eral eo.etment, it has been beld that
an officer of any National bank is not
allowed to serve as a presidential elec
tor. Mr Hampton was immediately ad
vised ol this ilaet by the Democrat
and his prompt action in resigning
from tbe directorate ol the Clifton
National is typical ol tba man.

The Ancient Mariner
(Br Vioia Maclay.)
A tall, but slightly stooped old man
is standing outside Ihe door where a
wedding is to be solemnized. The
old man has a snowy beard and hair,
also bright and glittering eyes. As
three youne men come up the na'.k
lo attend tho wedding, he stops one of
them, much against his wishes, and
proceeds to loll him of an oxperience
he one had. Tbe weddipg guet
tries to draw away but is held by the
skinny hand of this old man known
as the Ancient Mariner.
The Mariner then relates a eea vry
age with two hundred men How
they merrily sailed tor the South in
fair weather, but when near tbe Equa
tor a stcrm arose, which drove tbess
toward tbe South Pole, into tbe land
of perpetual snow and ice.
One day, an Albatross, a bird of the
south seas, came and lit on deck.
The tailors received it with great joy,
tor after its coming, the weather
cleared and a north wind sprung up
At this part of the story, a shadow of
pain crosses the "Id seafarer's face,
which leads h'e listener to enquire the
cause. He an-wers: "With my
cross-bowl shot the Albatross."
Stormy weather followed the killing
and the soldiers blamed bim. saying
that be bad killed the bird of good
omen. One day tbe vessel suddenly
entered a beca.med sea, and aa for
many davs, "as idle as a painted
ship upon a painted ocean." The
water gave out and every tongue he
came paroh'd. His shipmates, to
punish bim tor his cruel deed, bung
the dead bird around his neck.
Time passed slowly and it wss with
joy they beheld a speck on the west
ern horizon, which they thought to be
a ship, but it was witb heavy hearts
they witnessed tbe approach ol a
skeleton craft with two passengers.
Life in Death,, and her companion.
Death. The two were shaking dice
for the posses-ion of bim. and Life In
Dath won. She histlcd thrice and
the bark slowly glided away oer the
waters, leaving tbe crew trembling
with fear. After its departure his
shipmates turned ghastly faces to
ward bim and with fearful curee gleans
in their eye,dropped dead. but as much
as he wished to, be could not die. Life
in Death having won bim.
He suffered a thousand deaths while
with no one but dead men for ship
mates, When h looked out to eea be
imagined he saw the urse in their
eyes and when be looked at his feet
he saw tb;ir lifeless forms. He tried
to prsy but only a wicked whisper
came from bis swcllen lips. On- day
while blessing tbe fish becanee they
were so beppy-tbe spell was brolen.
A restful sleep then came and held
him for many hours He awoke to
find it had rained and his thirst was
quenched. He could bear the roaring
of a storm, but it did not seem to
reach the ship. Tbe vessel wu- saila
ing on peacefully when it made a sud
den bound and he fell in a faint
While in this t-anco be beaid two
spirits talking of the aBgelie power
that was taking the ship north faster
than buman life could endure.
He regained consciousness in the
night to learn thai a gentle freeze
was taking the ship north quickly
but without much raotioj. Lr! hen
glancing toward tbo north be lehe'd
his own country and it was with sots
of joy be saw the light bouse and be
loved kirk. Turning to the deck he
saw the AngeJ spirits leaving the dead
men Hearing tbe dash of oars be
looked and siw tbe pilot and the her
mit coming to ard him in a boat.
Just then a terrifio earthquake shook
the sea and the ship went down. He
wasssved by tbe pilot pulling him in
to tbe boat. He told tbe hermit of
tbe killing ol the Albatross and then
felt bettet.
The Mariner then said tobislis'ener:
"It often seems to me that I must
again tell some one ol my cruel but
thoughtless deed; and that is why I
t-.M nn ni story. farewell i

before I go I wish to I'll )Ou:

All things both great and small;
For the dear God that loveth us;
He made andlloveth all.' "
Tbe Acctnt Mariner is gone and
the wedding guest turns from the
door a sadder, but wieer man.
