POWER OF HOPE. Hope lands tbe child to plant the Rower, The man to sow the seed, Nor leaves fulfilment to her hour, But proimits again to deed. —Sarah F. Adams. TIIUEE LINKS IN A CHAIN. Neither the brush nor the pen, but the lancet and tlje scalpel, are properly my tools, and yet for an hour past 1 have been occupied in delineating on the canvas of memory certain scenes that belong to the past. The reverie painted pictures are three in number, and each is vivid, sharply defined and stands conspicuously out in its setting of trivial or exacting circum­ stance. Have they anything in common, despite their seeming dissociation!1 I be­ gin to think so. A more •dubious prob­ lem: If there is indeed a hidden secret link between these events, will the dis­ covery thereof aid or hinder the realiza­ tion of my dearest hope? I have «it pres­ ent 110 answer to this question. The lirst scene imagination lias con­ jured anew before me with all •the exact­ ness of realism reveals the interior of a...

4 RECOLLECTION. As when a player, weary of the day, Takes up his instrument and plays along, First aimlessly, until unto some song.

GROVER IN PERIL BIS TRAIN BARELY ESCAPES GOING THROUGH A. BURNING BRIDGE. Investigation Shows That the Fire Was Probably Purposely Set With the In­ dention of Wrecking the Presidential Train. CHICAGO, Oct. 17.—A News special from Memphis, Tenn., says: When the pilot train preceding the presidential train arrived at a trestle between Bonner Ville and Jonesboro, Ark., the engineer discovered the trestle to he on fire. Ho did not make the discovery \tntil it was too late to stop the train before the en­ gine had passed over the burning portion. As soon as possible he backed the train off the trestle and jumped down to exam­ ine the Are. He found that a section about ten feet square was in flames, and rthat the fire had been started on the •under side of the timbers.

HANDICAPS ON HOSPITALITY. The Coining of tlio Guest Implies an Up­ heaval of the Routine of Living. "With every advance that tlio worlil has made it has left some virtue behind. Now, it becomes a question whether the virtue of hospitality is not to be the next sacrifice to the elaborate civilization of modern life. The chief causes which threaten its ex­ tinction are three: First, the enormous increase of travel second, the pressure of occupation and third, the growing ex pensiveness of living, especially in th« great centers. The passion for travel which has devel­ oped in all countries, but most here in America, makes people unwilling to keep up a complicated establishment which must be shut up or left to run itself when the proprietor takes his winter trip to Florida or his summer jaunt to Norway. Each year, therefore, increases the num­ ber of people who prefer to live in a hotel, or an apartment, with the fewest possible servants. This at once becomes a handi­ cap on hospitalit...
