THE ROUND OF LIFE. Two children down by the shining strand, With eyes as blue as the summer sea, .While the sinking sun fills all the land With the glow of a golden mystery; Laughing aloud at the sea-mew's cry, Gazing with joy on its snowy breast, Till the first star looks from the evening sky, And the amber bars stretch over the west. A soft green dell by the breezy shore, A sailor lad and a maiden fair; fHand claspedgin hand, while the tale of yore Is borne again on the listening air. For love is young, though love be old, And love alone the heart can fill; And the dear old tale that has been told In the days gone by is spoken still. A trim-built home on a sheltered bay; A wife looking out on the glistening sea; A prayer for the loved one far away, And prattling imps 'neath the old roof-tree; A lifted latch and a radiant face By the open door in the falling night; A welcome home and a warm embrace From the love of his youth and his children bright An aged man in an old arm-chair; ...

PLOATING PANi IEBS. A foot-ball association has beenlformedat Harvard College. Our. educational institu tions are keeping abreast of the times. The new British minister to this country is bald-headed, and asks for a suspension: of public opinion until the amiable qualities of his wife become known.. An exchange speaks of a young man who "ate dinner with green kids on." A dinner with green kids on is not bad to take, provi ded the "green kids" mean fresh lamb. There is something radically wrong about our professions when a pious minister only gets forty cents for joining a couple, and a wicked lawyer gets forty dollars for untying: the same. Tom Sayers., Jr., son of Tom Sayers, the pugilist, has achieved considerable fame in England as a fine baritone, singing much at social entertainments. It must pain the' old man to see his family so degenerated. People who imagine that Mr. Hayes is out of politics are mistaken. He was recent ly elected road commissioner of Fremont. It is understo...

RECOOMPENSE. The earth gives us treasure four-fold for all that we give to its bosom; The care we bestow on the plant comes back in the bud and the blossom. The sun draws the sea to the sky, 0, stillest and strangest of powers, And returns to the hills and the meadows the gladness of bountiful showers. The mother regains her lost youth in the beauty and youth of her daughters, We are fed after many long da) s by the bread that we cast on the waters. Never a joy do we cause but we for that joy are the gladder, Never a heart do we grieve but we for the grieving are sadder. Never a slander so vile as the lips of the willing re hearser, And curses, though long, loud and deep, "come home to abide with the curser. He who doth give of his best,,of that best is the cer tainest user, And he who withholds finds himself of his gaining the pitiful loser. The flowers that are strewn for the dead bloom first in the heart of the living, And this is the truest of truths, that the best of the gift i...

Pd ~J) NAAL AND IM PERSONAL, Kate Claxton is now performing to a very small audience. It's a girl. Half the grocers in Chicago are selling "butterine" for pure butter. For the first time in the history of New York the senate elect has a majority of dem ocrats. Queen Victoria has expressed her gratifica tion at reading the life of .President Gar field. Frank Hattan, the new assistant postmas ter general, was a drummer boy during the war. Prof. King is building another large bal loon on a novel principle, with further to test the easterly current. Dr. D. Hayes Agnew's practice is reported to have largely increased since his connection with the president's case. Bismarck, D. T., owes but $5,000. But Bismarck hasn't yet begun to build, sewers or wster works or pavements. There were 1,440 pounds of diamonds shipped to Europe from Cape Town last year. They were mostly secured by hotel clerks. Counsel Cook estimates that Corkhill is a liar. Like enough ; the public is beginning to believe ...

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, November 30, 188i. JERRY COLLL-S. - - - - - - - EDITOR CONGRESS convenes next Monday. BEECHER didn't know Guiteau was loaded. BENTON needs a flouring mill, and needs it badly. THE tariff convention convened at New York yesterday. DR. HAMILTON thinks Guitcau is insane enough to hang. THE Northern Pacific was finished to Miles City yesterday. ADVANTAGE should be taken of this good weather to supply Benton with plenty of fuel. NEXT year a large portion of the immigra tion to Montana will be byway of the North rn Pacific road. THE fight for the Speakership promises to be a warm one. A Republican will handle the gavel during the next session. SCOVILLE is defending Guiteau, his brother in-law, single-handed, and, it must be admit ted, is conducting the case with ability. EVERY dollar expended on the principal highways of Choteau county will bring a thousand in the way of trade to Benton. IF Helena should, after all, only get a branch of the Northern Pacific Rai...

NLIKE'S CONFESSION. Now Mike was an 'ostler of very good style, Yet sly as a church mouse was he; And he came to confess to the new parish priest, Like a pious and true devotee. When his sins were reeled off till no more could be found, Said the priest: "Are you sure you've told all ? Have the mouths of the horses never been greased, So they couldn't eat oats in the stall ?" "With respect to your riv'rence," said Mike, with a grin, "Sure for that ye may lave me alone; I've scraped till there's niver a sin left behoind Me conscience is clane to the bone !" SoPabsolved, happy Mike went away for more sins, Till the day came around to tell all; And the very first thing he confessed, he had greased The mouth of each horse in the stall! "How is this?" said the priest; "when here but last week, You never had done this, you swore." "Faith, thanks to yer riv'rencc," said Mike, "such a thing I niver had heered of before!" -.0·oe I~e~ Changes of a Century. The nineteenth century' has witnessed...

FLOATING FANOIES. The mistake that the Cornell crew made was in not securing the services of Iroquois and Foxhail as stroke and bow oars. Sleigh manufacturers learn with regret Vennor predicts snow next winter. They were hoping he would predict a hot wave. A tall man having rallied a friend on the shortness of his legs, the friend replied: "My legs reach the ground; what more can yours do ?" A most disgraceful affair recently occured in Kansas. Two prominent politicians fought a duel and neither of them was hurt. Why is pape r money more valuable than coin? Because you double it when you put it in your pocket, and when you. take it out you find it creases. "Honesty is the best policy." But you have to pay the prismiums in this world and realize on your insurance in the next.

WALT WHITMAN'S POEMS. [The following bits of verse are from Walt Whit man's new edition of his poems, which is now in the press of James R. Osgood & Co., of Boston.] As at Thy Portals also Death. As at thy portals also death, Entering thy sovereign, dim, illimitable grounds, The memories of my mother, to the divine, blending maternity, To her, buried and, gone, yet burried not, gone not from me, I see again the calm, benignant face fresh and beauti ful still, I sit by the form in the coffin, I kiss and kiss convulsively again the sweet old lips the cheeks, the closed eyes in the cuflin: To her, the ideal woman, practical, spiritual, of all of earth, life, love to me the best, I grave a monumental line, before I go, amid these songs, And set a tombstone here. The Sobbing of the Bells. [MAianight, September 19-20, 1881.] The sobbing of .the bells, the sudden deathnews everywhere, The slumberers rouse, the rapport of the People, (Full well they know the message in the darkness, Ful...

FOR THE 80RAP BOOK. A Few Bright Leaves From Pleasant Volumes. The marriage life is always an inspired, a vexatious, or a happy condition. The first is when two couple of no genius or taste for themselves meet together upon such settle ment as has been thought reasonable by parents and conveyancers, from an exact valuation of the land and each of both parties. In this case the young lady is no more regarded than the house and improve ments in purchase of an estate; but she goes with her fortune, rather than her fortune with her. These make up the crowd, and fill up the lumber of the human race, with out beneficence toward those below them, or respect to those above them. The vexa tious life arises from a conjunction of two people of quick taste and presentment, put together for reasons well known to their friends, in which especial care is taken to avoid what they think the chief of evils, poverty, and insure to them riches, with every evil besides. These people live in a constant c...
