IN H &RVEST DAY. Through Farmer Gale's wide fields I passed Just yester-eve; My week of holiday was spent, And idly on the stile I leant, Taking my leave. Of all the fair and smiling plain, Wood, vale and hill, And all the homely household land, (The warm grasp of each kindly hand Bides with me still); And I was sad. The stricken grain Around me lay; I could but think of silent glade Of buds and blossoms lowly laid The harvest day. "And this is all !" I sadly said, "These withered leaves This gathered grain; spring's hour of bliss And summer's glory turn to this Some yellow sheaves!" Then Farmer Gale-that gdod old man, ac .imply wise Who overheard, and quickly turned, Said, while a spark of anger burned In his gray eyes; "Lad, thou art town-bred, knowing naught Whereof thou pratest! For, be the flower as fair as May, The fruit it yields in harvest day Is still the greatest! "And thou-thy spring shs 11 quickly pass; Fast fall the leaves From life's frail tree. In harvest day See ...

THE CHOICE. "Which shall it be, dear mother? To Which home shall I go? The grand old castle besk'e the sea, Or the little brown cot below. "Which shall. it be, dear mother? A p'ain white muslin gown, Or the richest and rarest of lace and silk To be found in Insley town ? "Which shall it be, dear mother? A tiny plain gold ring, Or wealth of gems and diamonds rare, That would ransom a captive king?" "My child, your heart must answer The question your lips have asked, Lest sowing in pride you sorrow When the harvest is overpast. "Choose with your heart, my darling; Let pride be swept away; Flowers are fairer than jewels, Gather them while you may. "Oftan glittering diamonds Conceil but an aching brow, A-d the chill heart's bitter throbbings, Bear record of falsehood's vow.

SIN. Once in a midnight, starless, dim and still, A face leaned to me from the shadowed dusk, A perfume fell about me as of musk, Thro' all my veins there shook a warning thrill I could not understand, I only knew The face was tender, and the eyes were sweet, That arms twined closely round my lingering feet, That lips were red as roses in the dew. I turned away, half longing, half in fear. With stranger air and proud averted eyes, She clasped me closr with reaproachful sighs, Her tears fell like the rain in autumn sere, I could not put her back. Her clinging kisses Fall on my icy lips until the blood Burst into flame. Her face was like a bud Royal, and perfumed with mad poisoned kisses; She drew me to her bosom, warm and fair, Closer and closer in the waning night, My soul was drunken with a strainge delight; I wound my eager hands in her golden hair, I could not hear the secret words of dread That gave me warning. Only her rare tones Whispered and languid; only the faint moans That...

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, April 11, 1882. JERRY COLLINS. - - -. - - EDITOR JESSE JAMES has robbed his last bank. 'I'HE laboring men of the west will remem ber Arthur. WE doubt whether the PLesident ought to have a veto. THE Pacific coast will not forget Arthur and his veto. THE Democrats carried Cincinnati by a mIijority of 6,000. THE passage of the Crow treaty bill is a feather in Delegate Maginnis' cap. IF there is a Democratic President elected in 1884 Arthur can claim all the credit for it. IF the PAcific coast is Democratic in 1884 it can be saia that Arthur did it with his little pen. THE New York Sun says that eleven per cent. of the enlisted men in the army desert every year. DELEGATE MAGINNIS, as usual, is making a good record. If he wants another term hut we desist. WE understand there is trouble in the camp already about the "ring" slate. There are too many would-be bosses. THERE are 57 lawyers in the Senate and 195 in the House, a large majority over all other professi...

THE NIGHT OWL BROOD. ii n Harrowing but Fascinating Life of the Ed- h itor, the Reporter and the Typographer a in a Metropolitan Newspaper si Office. fi Some genius has said, "The day was made a to, drone and dream, the night to learn and ramble." The majority of mankind fulfill ing nature's law, spend the hours of darkness .irn needed rest; but there are a class of per sons whose varied duties enforce night work --a labor at once enervating and demoraliz ing both physically and mentally, yet abso lutely necessary. It is rather a remarkable fact that to a majority of the unfortunate t wretches who perform this nocturnal labor, there is a sort of infatuation for it, increas ing rather than otherwise as time goes on. h There is, to be sure, a trifle advance in wages ti to the night workman, though not sufficient ii to pay him for the energy expended and the certain premature relaxation of energy of both mind and body. Of all these nocturnal laborers, there are none whose abilities are...

A MIISSISSIPPI PILOT'S STORY. sonme Facts About Alligators as They Were in the Good Old Days. The passenger, who was going down the big river for the first time in his life, secured permission to climb up beside the pilot, a grim old grayback, who never told a lie in his life. "Many alligators in the river ?" inquired the stranger, after a look around. "Not s: many now, since they got to shooten' 'em for their hide and taller," was the reply. "Used to be lots, eh ?" "I don't want to tell you about 'em stranger," replied the venerable pilot, sighing heavily. "Why ?" "Cause you would think I was lyin' to you, and that's sumthin' [ never do. I can cheat at keerds, drink whisky, or chaw poor terbaker, but I can't lie." "Then there used to be lots oflthem ?" in the passenger. "I'm most afraid to tell you stranger, but I've counted 'leven hundred allygaters to the mile from Vicksburg cl'ar down to New Or leans. That was years ago, afore a shot was ever fired at 'em."

Editors of the River Press: In reply to an article published in the Ben ton Record I would state that the discharged Quartermaster employee who waltzed away with government property in the dead of the night, as that paper stated, is Mr. John Zim merman. That gentleman has been in the employ of Captain Lloyd for the last three years and, it is;safe to say, stands above re proach to-day. John left the employ of Captain Lloyd on April 1st for the purpose of settling at Barker, and as he had bought a good deal of government property at public sales, he bought two horses and as he could not get a wagon very handy here, he applied to Captain Lloyd for the loan of one to take him as...

An Extract. "I can never forgive you," and as Myrtle Hathaway spoke these words, saying them slowly, and with a very mournful cadence, showing how every fibre of her being, every pu!sing nerve in her little, shapely body, was being stretched to its utmost tension by the cruel weight of woe that was bearing down upon her, she threw her arms around Riordan's neck in a passionate abandon of grief that knew no bounds. And yet how beauti'ul she looked, as she stood there that soft, Sensuous day in June, when the sky was qiivering with torquoise bloom, and a l.rge red-and-white cow stood outlined agtainst the western horizon. Wonderfully clear brown eyes shining through a mass of tangled hair that drifted over them. A pair of red lips quiveling with the sobs that shook her slight frame. Soft, peachy cheeks, down which the tears-those saline but un erring evidences of a broken heat--were f lling like April rains. "And is there no receding from this re solve, my sweet ?" whispered Rupert in...
