ESS! jißyi j E AN ESSAY ON POETRY (Being the introduction to the section of selected matter in Mr. Viett’s new book. “The Deeper Hcirmonies,” now in press.) INTRODUCTION. Max Maury, in his terse introduction to Matthew Gregory Lewis' splendid novel “Rosario,” says:— “The intellectual treasure of humanity needs to be constantly husbanded by intelligent and energetic hands, so that every parcel of gold, foolishly thrown away, be returned with respectful love, to the common hoard.” In the collection of prose and poetry here presented the compiler lias gathered the stray parcels of gold that have met him on his literary pilgrimage, applying to the process of conservation, what he believes to be a mature literary judgment, and a keenly poetical taste as well. The appreciation of poetry is as much a matter of intuition as of reason, and a high quality of both constitutes the best light under which it may be viewed.. The high consideration with which for many years the poetical work of the...

6 THE STIRRUP-CUP. My short and happy day is done, The long and dreary night comes on, And at my door the pale horse stands To carry me to unknown lands. His whinny shrill, his pawing hoof, Sounds dreadful as a gathering storm; And I must leave this sheltering roof And joys of life so soft and warm. Tender and warm the joys of life— Good friends, the faithful and the true; My rosy children and my wife, So sweet to kiss, so fair to view— So sweet to kiss so fair to view; The night comes down, and lights burn blue; And at my door the pale horse stands To bear me forth to unknown lands. —JOHN HAY. CHRISTIANITY OR NOTHING. I desire that, in judging of Christianity, it may be remembered that the question lies between this religion and none; for, if the Christian religion be not credible, no one with whom we have to do will support the pretentions of any other. —REV. HENRY FOOTMAN, M. A. “INVICTUS.” Out of the night that covers me Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods ...

AN ESSAY ON POETRY. (Continued from page 5) soul of Charity; hence the poems of pathos arc among the sweetest and most touching of all. But the banquet is awaiting in the Temple of the Muse; the feast is spread, and we will not longer keep the guests waiting at the portals. Thanking you for your patience, and imping to please, 1 am Yours faithfully, GEORGE F. VIETT.

Vol. I. No. 41 The ancient saw that “accidents are liable to happen in the best regulated families,” is always in order and always acceptable in extenuation of the occasional, but like all good things it loses in force and conviction if repeated too often. The Norfolk Railway and Light Co. has had quite a few accidents in a somewhat short space of time, and while we do not wish to make capital out of that which is liable to happen in the best establishment on earth where machinery is depended upon to do certain things, the failure of the city lights on Tuesday night, when the town was left in total darkness for the space of fully an hour, serves to emphasize the contention on which we have been harping—THAT NORFOLK IS SERIOUSLY IN NEED OF TWO ESTABLISHMENTS FOR SUPPLYING LIGHT TO THE CITY. For an hour on Tuesday night Norfolk was a dark town indeed. People could hardly grope their way along to their homes, and had it not i>een for a brilliantly clear atmosphere matters wo...

2 ness, for when his noise is over, it is over for good, and peace and cpiietness seem the sweeter by contrast. Not so in Norfolk! Life is one long-drawn horror for sensitive and delicate people during the Christmas week. Crackers are sold for days prior to the 25th, and the small boy begins his torture. Night and day the miserable intermittant popping keeps up. Women and babies are kept awake all of Christmas Eve and Christmas eights, and even on the 26th the miserable thing is not over. Then comes New Year's, with a repetition of the agony, then an interval to the Fourth of July, making during the year a full seven-day horror to add to all our other afflictions. Drunkenness, blasphemy, obscenity and the spasmodic explosion of fire-crackers in every corner of the city regardless of the sick and the dying, go to make up as debasing, as paltry and as pitiful an attempt at a celebration as could possibly be conceived by the benighted savages of darkest Africa. No art, no beauty, no mu...

themselves, for ice skating is one of the healthiest, most fascinating and delightful sports one can indulge in. The admission is only 25 cents at night with 25 cents for skating. There is a charge of 25 cents for admission in the morning and afternoon, but there is no charge for skates or skating. There are now several local hockey teams and hockey promises to become the leading sport here. It is a game that calls for the highest skill on skates and it puts into motion every part of the anatomy. The first two weeks of the Ice Palace have shown that the people like ice skating and as the season advances the crowds will increase in size. We still say that the new theater should never be built in Tazewel street, but if we must have it there let ’er go. Anything for competition and some good shows. If one desires to see a real first-class production one must journey to the big city by the Hudson. A sad c unmentary for the “exposition city” with the exposition just cue year away. “I’m g...

ONE #i.75 SIX MONTHS uo THREE MONTHS 50 PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY FOR SALE ALL OVER Address all communications to 422 E. flam Street SUGGESTION TO NORFOLK’S LADY SINGERS A very beautiful custom prevails in England during the Christmas festivities. It involves an act of charity, atonement and self-humiliation on the part of those whose lot is cast amid the pleasanter ways of life. During the Christmas week one frequently encounters bands of supposed gypsies singing on the street corners. Stopping to enjoy the unusual quality of the music they render, the onlooker is amazed to note the beauty and refinement of the company. If not informed on the matter, one will wonder why such people are singing on the public streets and collecting small coin from the many willing hands, when they might make a fortune on the stage. These people, men and women both, are frequently the cream of society, people of the highest talent, who have taken thi...

SOME FRANCHISE CORRESPONDENCE, And a Scurrilous Attack Upon Mr S. T. Dickinson, Jr. The following is a reproduction of correspondence addressed by Mr. S. T. Dickinson, Jr,, a prominent and respected business man of this city, to the members of the Retail Merchants’ Association. A copy of the first and third letters was sent to every member, and it is but a fair inference that the answer comprised in letter No. 2 was written by some member of that association, though it is rather distressing to consider that so honorable a body would harbor so petty and cowardly a scamp, to whose communication we give attention only to indicate the desperate straits to which some of the opponents of the Fentress franchise application are compelled. Strictly within his rights and privileges, Mr. Dickinson addressed this letter to the members of the Retail Merchants’ Association; it is conservative and deals strictly with facts justified by common observation : Norfolk, Va., Dor. 16, 1905. Dear Sir:— H...

6 BEHIND THE VEIL. Here, amid the (‘limes diurnal, Just before the veil I wait, Soon to hear the voice Supernal Sounding 1 though the vaults of Fate; Soon, sweet Hope, immortal youth, Leaping from the shrines of Truth, Woo each warm anticipation O’er the portals of sensation. Did Jehovah but design me For a moment’s dream of time? To these perishing joys confine me, Barr’d from yon eternal clime? Is this musing mind a breath, Lost in all-victorious death, Frail as dust and vapor flying, When these mortal powers are dying? Soon this frame will be a plunder, Crumbling for the worms below; Must I, as it sinks asunder, All to mold’ring darkness go? All of conscious life bereft, At my utmost limit left, Born to quench each warm sensation, Deep in drear annihilation? Is not life a path allow’d me, Up to life beyond the sky? Why hath Ciod with thought endow’d me, If the powers of thought must die? Happy, were I made to be, Like the brute from reason free, Gay amid the seasons o'er me, Heed...

Vol. I. No. 42 MR. HATHAWAY S CIRCULAR LETTER TO THE RETAIL MERCHANTS. One painfully noticeable feature of the case of the Norfolk Railway and Light Co. versus the Fentress franchise application, is the conspicuous lack of ability with which the former has been handled. This is admitted by all those who have discernment enough to judge. A prominent Norfolk attorney was heard to say that, thrown to the single resource of its printed advertisements, its circular letters, and its written controversial matter, the Norfolk Railway and Light Co. would, in any court, have been most disastrously beaten by the articles that have appeared in this paper, and this has been accomplished with only partial information on the technical and legal aspect of light and power operation and franthises. The people at the head of the Norfolk Railway and Light Co. are evidently of that all too common kind who value brains of only certain quality, and appraise ability according to their own standard—the stan...

2 Hathaway to the contrary notwithstanding. Mr. Hathaway’s explanation of the reduction in gas and electricity that has taken place since his company first took charge of its present property is the bare statement of a fact that it received as information by those who do not know, though there is no determinate conclusion reached by drawing comparisons of the charges of long ago with those of to-day in the face of the immense strides of modern appliances and the solidification and concentration of capital and productive energy. The real question at issue is, Are the public getting the benefit of the later methods? Mr. Fentress appeared to think not, offered to demonstrate the fact, whereupon the Norfolk Railway and Light Co. grants his contention, and steals his thunder with the modest demand that he be shut out for his pains. In other words, Mr. Hathaway, representing his monopoly, practically says to the people. “This man Fentress is right, light and power can be supplied at cheap...

of neglect of public duty, and the offending corporations brought into court, or Mr. Hathaway should be afforded the stage to wriggle out of a somewhat compromising situation. This clause in Mr. Hathaway’s communication has excited more comment than any other, and it’s up to somebody in authority to give a waiting public some explanation of this alleged distressing state of affairs. We are glad at this point to leave the sad and sombre elements of this letter to take up the following cheerful paragraph : “In another paragraph in his (Mr. Dickinson’s) letter he speaks of ‘this octopus.’ Norfolk is a city that has within its corporate limits about 45,000 people. Calling an industrial corporation in a city of this size an octopus is the most ridiculous part of the whole proposition.” Here is where dignity and decorum take wing and risibility comes on in waltz time. Mr. Hathaway associates an octopus with immensity and ponderousness alone. It must be a whale or it is no octopus! For the...

HAPPY NEW YEAR. THE OLD AND THE NEW. “A flower unborn; a book unread; A tree with fruit unharvested; A path untrod; a house whose rooms Hack yet the heart’s divine perfumes; A landscape whose wide border lies In silent shades; ’neatli silent skies; A wondrous Fountain yet unsealed; A casket with its gifts concealed, Tills is the year that for you waits, Beyond To-morrow’s mystic gates.” When we look back at the year departed, and shake hands with all its precious memories, we realize how inevitable was our Destiny, as our triumphs and our failures fall upon our heart with a peace that is softer than silence. The year that has left us, what of it? We have tasted of its cup, of its bitter and its sweet. It has no more to offer us. It is dead, but the memory of it will never be erased from the tablets of the brain, and the good that we have done will be to our heart as dew upon a fainting flower, while the thoughts of the kind words spoken will come to us as sweet and pleasant as the n...

6 A SEA ROMANCE. A mermaiden beautiful, Clever and dutiful, Sat on a sea billow trimming her frock With coral and spangles She'd found In the tangles Of seaweed that grew by the side of a rock. A merman was roaming About in the gloaming— A handsome young merman who dwelt in the sea, And he spied the sea fairy So graceful and airy, And said, “She’s the very mermaiden for me!” When the starlight was fading He went serenading, And played on a lute that was studded • with pearls; And he sang, “From your pillow,. Come dance on the billow, Oh, sweetest and dearest of all the mergirls! “Be mine, and together We’ll lloat like a feather, And sail far away in the curl of a wave; But if you reject me, And scorn and neglect me, I'll go and I’ll bury myself in a cave.” The mermaiden listened, Her amber eyes glistened, She lied from her slumber to dance in the foam; And when they were married A green billow carried Them off to their beautiful sea grotto home.
