&* EM'a, OS"' THIS BEAUTIFUL EARTH. if his beautiful aartlk! «ad this beautiful life! And only one span to enjoy It And we In our folly exhaust it with strife We do not know how to employ it. Our loves and our hates get so painfully mixed, In spite of our noblest endeavor, We live in a state of "between and be twixt." In a state of tranquillity, never. Make haste and be happy, ye mortals that can Cease yearning: for what cannot be. Remember ye have but the one little span Make it fruitful and joyous and free. Small matter that others have more than enough, While ye struggle and strive for mere bread Dame Nature is chary of sweetmeats and puff, Plain fare makes high thinking, 'tis said. The sun and the air and the bird's and the trees, And the glorious kingdom of flowers— The meanest of men is a monarch of these The purest of bliss should be ours. Then let us join hands for a happier clan. Be our fortune whatever it may Life is at worst but a brief little span, And at best little...

Hamilton, of the Seventh Ohio Volunteers, 259 Goodale street, Columbus, Ohio,writes: "Besides having the merits of Pe-ru-na so fullv Colonel Hamilton, of Columbus, O. demonstrated in my family, I have a number of friends who have taken it for catarrh and stomach trouble, and all unite in praising it. As a remedy for catarrh I can fully recommend it." Mrs. Hamilton, wife of the gallant Colonel, is an ardent friend of Pe-ru-na also. In a letter on the subject she writes: "I have been taking Pe-ru-na for some time, and I am enjoying better health now than I have for years. I attribute the change in my health to Pe-ru-na, and recom mend this excellent catarrh remedy to every woman, believing it to be espe cially beneficial to them." The spring-time is the most favorable time of the year to treat catarrh. There is so much less liability to take fresh cold that the treat ment is uni...

Wmnr Wribnne. TRIBUNE PRINTING CO Publishers. WILLMAP MINN THE legislature Minnesota has just passed a bill prohibiting- the practice of the boycott in any of its forms.

The penalty is a fine or imprisonment. G. W. DUNN, the naturalist, most ot whose work has hitherto been confined to South America, intends to start soon for the Philippines to make a collec tion for the Rothschilds, The trip will be chiefly remarkable owing to the fact that Mr. Dunn is 85 years of age.

Thou wast not born amid earth's stain and soil, And dreary din, and noise of jangled mirth Thou hast lived far from all our tears and toil. Oh, bring us back the blessing of thy birth! Speak but a little of that other life Which knew thee once, wild as the wind and brine Set free our spirits, straitened in their strife, To sweep those old unwearying ways of thine. Bring back the glorious freedom of thy flight, Skimming the crest of purple waves afar In that illimitable flood of light Which knows no stain of toil, no fetter ing bar. Give us to know the glory and the wonder Eorn of the flying rack, the gleaming foam, Where mighty billows rear their heads and thunder Against the wild black rocks which were thy home. Our hands are tired, our eyes are dim of seeing, Our ears are dull with noise of mirth and moan. Oh, give us back the beauty of that being Unwearied and unsoiled, which was thine own! —Mabe...

A HERO, He treads no gory battlefields. A Wellington, or Bonaparte He leads no Knights of Crimson Cross, Like Richard of the Lion-heart I've read of no exploit of his. Nor do I even know his name. For round his brow has ne'er been twined The laurel wreath of fame. In fact, he's just a simple boy. A merry, gentlemanly lad. Whose honest heart and kindly words Must make the very angels glad. The fearless glances of his eyes Candor and truthfulness reveal, And prove to all that he has naught Of meanness to conceal. At lessons, household tasks or play, His earnest spirit is the same In school, he stands the first in class, Is foremost in each manly game. Kind words and sunny smiles he gives To all. nor ceases then. Indeed, He's ready with a willing hand To help another's need. My eyes are aching for a sight Of him—my ideal boy-hero.
