And stops now and then to sigh For he says that this era of frauds and crimes Makes him yearn for the days gone by. •nd he makes me feel, while the tear drops steal To my eyes as I mourn my fate, That my ill-starred birth brought me onto this earth A decade or so too late. He tells of the actors who trod the stage— They didn't need scenery then— And it does him good to recall the rage Of some eminent public men. "People didn't neglect to display respect Deliberate and profound. And they'd never waste in unseemly haste Their energies getting 'round." Yet the world is moving and toiling still, And loving and laughing, too And honest purpose bends with a will To the work that it finds to do. And mighty men wield the sword and pen. And the lightning leaps forth to bear Each truth in turn that the world may learn Its lesson from everywhere. And so, as I think, ...

They had used their beat horses in. the effort to overtake it, to no purpose, neveT be ing able to gat anywherenear thie ani mal. At first we did not pay much attention to this story, but still it kept cropping up from different camps, and at last in the fall of 1875 I myself had a chance to verify the truth of the report. I had been sent on duty north along the Bed Deer river and was camped near a large baind of Blackfeet, who were hunting south of that river. The buffaloes had moved north in vast numbers and the prairie was black with them. I had gone out one morning with a party of Blackfeet '-to see one of their hunts, and' also to try and kill for my self. My horse was...

vys t'r li 1 $ HUNGER AS A MOTIVE. It Is the Aladdin*® Lamp of Civili sation. The rowels of nature's most powerful spur, hunger, are continually reddening the flanks of the primitive community, says the Monist. The apostle's scath ing arraignment of the Cretans, "whose god is their belly," would literally ap ply to every savage tribe—and many a civilized one. Hunger is one of the iriainsprings of progress. At its im perative command the flint was chipped into the arrow head, the dart, the spear. In jls honor the net was woven, the hoe was made and the soil broken. To ap pease its cravings the wild bull is broken to the yoke, the forests are Soiled, the ditch is dug through the marsh. On its errands the ship is launched on the perilous deep and the band sent out upon the war path. Into its service have been impressed the winds of Jieaven, the steam wreaths of the cal dron and the glittering shafts of the lightr. It is the real Aladdin's lamp of civilization.
