It is claimed by the friends of Al­ bert Seheffer of St. Paul that that gen­ tleman's chances for the Republican nomination for goyernor sh\nld b« good, as there is "growing opposition to Charley Oilman, traceable to MR connection with certain railroad," J*st what this connection is the article in the Pioneer Presa which advanced the idea failed to state. If Oilman's connections with any railroads wonld tend to decrease his political strength in the rural districts of the state, Mr. Scheffer's friends would injure their strongest opponent by enlightening the public in the matter. The people in this part of the state haro reasou to know that the most successful fight ever made in this state against the railroad corporations was made by C. A. Gilraan when member of the Min­ nesota house of representatives in 1876, '77 and '78, and the whole north­ ern part of the state was benefitted by the victories ho achieved. Gilman's "connection with certain railroads" is responsible for a growin...

The Fords had always lived in luxury. But on his death-bed Mr. Ford called Effie to him his articulation was imper­ fect, but she caught: "Bad investments, mortgage bonds. Poor! Poor Barker will tell you." A few gasps and it was pver. All day she had tried to bring order out of chaos.

Slowly to and fro a woman paced the Waterloo bridge, London, appar­ ently unmindful that a drizzling rain bad set in and that her thin shawl was becoming wet through. After awhile she turned her steps toward the para­ pet, and leaning over its edge, gazed down into the black depths beneath. The next instant she stood erect upon the parapet, a shadowy figure seen through the mistiness of the night. In another moment she would have been fluttering like a wounded bird, down to certain death, had not a man's hand held her buck from the fa­ tal act, as he exclaimed: "Fo' God's sake, lass, dinna do't." For a second the woman struggled in his grasp, then,...

The gladsome current o( our youth, Ere passion yet disorders. Steals lingering like a river smooth Along its glassy borders. But as the caroworn cheek grows wan, And sorrow's shafts fly thicker. Ye stars that measure life to man, Why seem your courses quicker? When joys have lost their bloom and breath And life itself is rapid. Why as we near the falls of Death, Find we its tide more rapid?

AFTM MANY DAYS When I was a young fellow I lived on father's farm, down there in Connecti 9 cut. You've seen the place. The church was near the tavern, and be­ hind the church was the"'parsonage And there lived Dominie Wheeler and his daughter Dolly. On Saturdays, after I had my supper, I used to dress myself, and tell my mother that I meant to call on Dominie Wheeler's folks. Mother generally answered that I couldn't do better that the dominie's conversation was sure to be improving, and that Dolly was not "hity-tity, like some gals she could mention." Father would aaa: "and a pretty ittle cottage, too." And armed with parental approval, I would go to the parsonage. It was a good time to go, for the ser­ mon had to be finished, as a general thing, on that evening, and Doily and 1 had delightful long talks in those sol­ itary moments, and one evening I proposed to Dolly, and she accepted me.
