As the story goes, the oldest settle-, ment in all that part of the original wildwood was at Passadanky. The deep gully and the creek that roared through it were there when the first settlers came. Neither had any name, and it was not until folks began to see ghosts along the creek and In the gully that appropriate nomenclature for them was suggested. Silas Grubb, so EE SCADS THZ WILD KLtPVOS. they will tell you, shot a deer one day. It fell, and he stepped up to It to cut Its throat. As he was standing a...

THE DYING YEAR. Mow the year Is sinking slowly. Sinking to Its last long sleep, And the passing hours seem holy* While we turn aside and weep. 1.1ke a friend about to leave us, Very precious still it seems All too honest to deceive us. Though made up of transient dreams. Yet those dreams are Interwoven With the fabric of our souls. And In passing they have proven Life is real as it unrolls. O the year of tears and laughter, Shade and sunshine, calm and storm, Passing on, while we come after Vainly searching for its form. Still that form, so feeble, lingers Like a pilgrim by the sea. And it points with trembling Angers Toward the unsolved mystery. O how lovely In Its dying Is the year so gray and old. While the wintry winds are sighing O'er a new grave in the mold. By that grave with open portal. Thoughtfully we stand and wait Till the old year, like a mortal, Sinks beneath the walls of fate. From that grave we come rejoicing At the breaking of the morn: In these words our gladness v...
