r ABILENE REFLECTOJi PUBLISHED BY Xj. EC. LITTS & CO. TWILIGHT. The shadows are veiling the brow of the hills. And vapors are soothing the murmuring rills, "While Twilight the daughter or sunshine and shade Is Queen of the evening, In glory arrayed. She gracefully mantles the waning of day, And welcomes the evening in golden array; Yet softens the glimmering curtain of light "With shadows that melt on the bosom of night. Triumphant she rides on the billows of Are, "With chaplet of jewels, in queenly attire; In-gold-tlnted armor she flashes her blade, And marshals the stars in their nightly parade! "With coursers unheeded, undaunted they run, "Whose Tootetcps all follow the path of the sun, "When softly unfolding her curtain of blue All spangled with silver, she wavesher adieu. Thus onward forever with banners unfurled, Her halo of glory enraptures the world. "While jentinel stars on the borders of night If ow herald the vast constellations of light. v In silence its millions of ...

f i? r U rt r t" 1 TURKISH RECREATIONS. "How tlis Indolent Snbject of the Saltan Amuse Themselves. The' traits of a people may often be judged as correctly from their pleasures and recreations as from their history and serious conduct In the freedom of the idle, pleasure-seeking hours, a people will betray whether they are imaginative or matter-of-fact, whether they are gentle or rough, whether they are sober or buoyant of spirit. It is usual to find that a people who dwell in rugged, inhospitable lands, in re gions of storm and gloomy skies, prefer amusements which are hardy and act ive; while those who dwell in softer, sunnier climes enjoy themselves in milder recreations. The old French chronicler, Froissart, observed, when in England, that the English "took their pleasures very sadly." The English, and especially the Scotch, dwelling as they do in a capricious climate, are noted for the ruggedness and hardihood of their sports. The buoyancy and gaycty of the French character, on...

2 f Lr 9- TEA DRINKING IN JAPAN. Occasions of Klaborate Ceremony Among the Higher Classes. Some letters recently received from Japan from an American traveler who is having exceptional advantages for becoming acquainted with the native life of the country, give some vcrj' curi ous and interesting items about tea drinking there. He says "tea-drinking is the great feature of Japan. It is not only a national taste, it is a social insti tution. On the railroads tea is offered first-class passengers at stations as water is provided for them with us. In traveling by private conveyance the little roadside inns for accommodation of travelers are called and are tea houses; tea is about all they have tc offer. When you go into the shops they bring you tea; it is a part of the general courteousncss and courtliness of their way of doing even in petty trading. But all this is merely incidental, quite aside from the real business of tea drinking. The tea you get in such ways is, of course, genera...

T ABILENE Uf LECTOR PUBLISHED BY H. LITTS & CO. ROSES. "Ihave roses to sell! 1 have roses to sell:' The voice of the vendor grew faint as it fell. I went to my window and threw it up high, Because I loved roses and wanted to buy. There were women and men speeding fait through the street. The footways resounded with hurrying feet; I looked to the left, and I looked to the right, But the seller cf roses was nowhere In sight. 'I have roses, sweet roses."' I heard it again. And a little wan torm hurried by in the rain; No friend to protect her to shield her from harm- No wealth save the roses that hung on her arm. She came to my beckon, so modest and shy. And blushed with delight when I offered to buy. I took the best blossoms; I gave what I chose; She knew not the value of even a rose. "I would not take money," she said, with a tear. "It father were well, and if mother were here. I can not help feeling I've felt it all day Ashamed to sell flowers that we once gave away!"j She fled,...

tax u Abilene Keflectoe. Thursday, November 24, 1887. HENEY LITTS, Editor. As the end of Mr. Cleveland's first term drn"-- near, the conclusion forces, itself on public notice that his adminis tration has been attended by no public calamity but by a generally improved fiscal and political feeling ; and all this im spite of the combined opposition of the Benublican party, a powerful and corrupt political organization. The Labor party learned a good lesson in New York last week. Instead of their vote showing "how to do it," it practically shows "how not to do it." Now let these side issues stand aside and go in with the Democratic party, which has ever been the poor man's friend, and demand a revision of the tariff that will revise and a reduction of war taxes that will reduce. A great mistake is made with regard to "do-nothincs" in the church. There are no such persons. Those reputed to be such are always busy in one of sev eral ways: either practically undoing what others have done,...
