HERE SHALL THE PRESS THE PEOPLE'S RIGHTS MAINTAIN, UNAWED BY INFLUENCE AND UNBRIBED BY GAIN. CHARLES E. PAINTER, Editor. STEPHENS CITY, FREDERICK CO., VA., SATURDAY, AUGUST 6,1881. VOL. I.---NO.3. Beautiful, laughing summer, With shafts of golden light, Lodged in the trees where the whispering breeze Is fanning a world so bright. See how the yellow sunbeams Chase all the shadows away, While birds and flowers and pearly showers Wake up the perfect day. The pearl-gems that sparkle at evening Bright diamonds seem at morn, Where sunbeams float like golden moats Among the shadowy corn. The wild rose leans from the hedges, Buttercups glow like gold, While lily-bells in bosky dells, The mystery of summer unfold. The sweet fern haunteth the forest And the vine-entangled glade, And sunbeams make of tangled brake Quaint pictures of light and shade ; The merry song of the reapers Comes o'er the yellow maize, As they bind the sheaves 'mid falling leaves Of the golden harvest days. The fickle si...

A schoolgirl passed by the gurgling flood, Which kissed the stones at her active feet, And the song it sang was glad and good, Afl she bounded over light and fleet, Ringing in torn her childish lay ; That was the song of a later day. A maiden walked by the brooklot's side. And heard the song of the silvern stream ; Fair, and soon to become a bride, Every impulse a golden dream ; Heard no echo of sin or strife, Naught but the sweetest psalm of life. A woman passed by the brooklet's side, Walking in sorrowful grief alone, Hearing moans in its turbid tide Echoing those her life had known ; Changed the sound of its restless ruin, Life had reached to the height of n...

What I Would Do. If, far from cultivated bower, I came across a lonely flower By mortal hands untended, Where one but seldom turns aside The leaves where it was wont to hide, Alono and unbcfrieii.lcd; Though fair as any jewel set In Flora's radiant coronet— Her roses, lilies, daisies— If there in solitude had grown, With none to make its duties known And none to speak its praises ; How make amends for all its loss, If I Humid chance to come across This littlo floral beauty, That, near a path but seldom trod, Looked calmly in the face of God And smiled as was its duty V I would not let its face amid More showy buds and blooms be hid, Which would with sweets o'erpower The timid thing, or in their pride With lofty insolence deride The lonely littlo flower.

But if I came acroßS this flower, Far, far remove...
