BEYONL THE SUNSEr. The road that ased his father's door He thought stretched on forevermore, Through fragrant vales of tangled grass, O'er many a misty mountain pass, Out into Wonders unexpressed Beyond the cloudiands of the west, Through lands and cities of rcnowmz To where the mighty sun goes down. And so he left his father's door And said, "I will return no more." He traveled forth beyond the bridge, He climbed the lofty mountain ridge, He passed the river and the town To find out where the sun went down; But when he sank at close of day, The sunset still was far away. He trod through many a wind-swept gtn; In mighty towns he mixed with men. The breath of many an alien breeze Tossed him o'er unfamiliar seas; He breathed the spicy gale that blows From Southern archipelagoes. And in the quiet Eastern calm He sought sweet sleep beneath the palm. But when he looked at close of day, The sunset still was far away. ie thought to leave his father's door And travelon forevermore. A wither...

Sutphin,.an other of Glasgow's physicians, who is familiar with the young man's case, and has made a study of mind reading, as well as what is termed "muscle read ing," by performers who claim to be guided by the thrills of the muscles of the subject. Dr. Sutphin gives some speculations at length on the alleged dis Uinction between mind reading and mus cle reading, and arrives at the conclusion that, though there may be trickery and imposture used by some people, there is such a thing as mind reading and no such thing ps mnuscle reading.

The question as to how long it will take at the present rate to complete the destruction of the forests of the United States seems to be one which will prob .Jly be solved within the next ten years, unless more effective means shall be found to preserve the wood land ewhich still belongs to the United States and to various States. The matter is one of extreme importance in every sense, and it is also one which directly and personally interests more thousands of human beings than is imagined by persons who are not familiar with the growth and extent of the lumber and timber industries of the country. To indicate the importance of this consid eration It may lIe sufficient to say that in the yeas 'ended May 31, 1890, the aver age number of persons employed in the logging camps, in the transportation...
