In 1881 Bill Nye was a briefless lawyer dabbling in country news- paper work at Laramie, Wyo.

That letter, which was reprinted everywhere, marked the advent of a new comic writer and the turn of the tide in ...

But a smooth and steadfast mind, Gentle thoughts and calm desires, Hearts with equal love combined, Kindle these never dying fires. Where these are not I despise Lovely cheeks or lips or eyes. —Thomas Carew. A MAID OF THE MILL. Mr. Richard Wareham, lying on his hack on the grass under an elm tree and dreamily smoking a good cigar, was about as near a realiza- tion of his ideas of Utopia as he was ever likely to he. With plenty of money, unlimited time and a feeling of unbounded satisfaction with his present position, Dick Wareham was happy. The half gentlemanly, half vagabond life which he had led all slimmer suited him exactly. His quarters at the inn in the vil- lage over the hill were comfortable, his portfolio was full of sketches, and trout had risen accommodatin...

The river brushed the banks like rustling silk, and the only other sound, very sharp and clear in the liquid monotone, was the crack of a woodpecker's beak on a hickory tree. It was a sweet, fresh, autumn morning in Lonesome valley. Before night the deer would bellow reply to the hunters' rifles and the moun- tain goat call to its unknown gods, but now there were only the wild duck skimming the river and then rising and fading into the mist, the high hilltop, the sun and again that strange crv: "Fingall! Fingall! Oh, Fingall!" Two men lounging at a fire on a ledge of the hills raised their eyes to the mountain side beyond and above them, and one of them said present- ly: "The second time. It's a woman's voice, Pierre." Pierre nodded and abs...

The rector had just ascend- ed the pulpit to deliver his sermon and to remind his parishioners of the importance of the day, when suddenly his sharp eye made the discovery that a stranger was seated among his audience, a man, whom —he was sure of that—he had never - seen there before. Whether from design or accident, the stranger had seated himself on the "bench reserved for the town of- ficers and men of rank and was cu- riously gazed at by his neighbors.

Wind, that art wailing through the night With the voice of a soul in pain, Thou hast waked the passion of wild regret, Which slumbered so long, to rage and fret 'Gainst the pitiless, fixed decrees of life. As well may the waves with the rock hold strife! Back to the tide of the Infinite, Poor heart, that hast cried in vain I Wind, that art wailing through the night With the voice of a soul in pain, Thou hast gathered up each cry of earth, That from mortal anguish ever had birth, At the door of the living to enter in, Weeping for sorrow and death and sin. Yet heart make answer, "God's will is right," And rest in his peace again. —Mary Gorges in Ch...
