THREE WISHES. I Ln Infant in Its u-adlo slept, And in its sleep it smiled ajid one by one three women knelt To kiss the fair-haired child; And each thought of the days to be And breathed a prayer half silently. Dne poured her lore on many lives, But knew love's toil and care; Its burdens dft had been to her A heavy weight to bear. She stooped and murmured lovingly: "Not hardened hands, dear child, for thee." I One had not known the burdened hands, But knew the empty heart; lit life's rich banquet she had sat, An unfed guest, apart. "Oh, not," she whispered, tenderly, "An empty heart, dear child, for thee. A.nd one was old; she had known care, She had known loneliness; Bhe knew God leads us by no path His presence cannot bless." She smiled and murmured, trustfully: "God's will, God's will, dear child, . for thee." British Weekly. Edith's Burglar, i jsrIFTH AVENUE was deserted, or JrJ nearly so.

WRECK OF THE VALENCIA. Disaster Adda Another Traced? to the Annali of the Sea. The wreck of the steamer Valencia off the west coast of Vancouver island adds to the annals of the sea a tragedy that will long be remembered. All hut fifteen of the 150 persons on board were drowned. The loss of life was not so great as that in a number of wrecks of similar character, but the peculiarly dramatic and cruel circuin stances of the disaster heighten its horrors. As in the case of many ill fated vessels wrecked in that vicinity, the Valencia, steering by dead reckon ing In a fog, got off its course anff struck a reef. Threatened with sink ing, the captain chose to hurl his ship Against the coast, which at this point is a precipitous wall of rock. From an early hour Tuesday morn ing until sometime Wednesday the men and women buddled on the deck of the Valencia confronted the pros pect of almost certain death with dry land and safely lying apparently al most within a stone's throw. The heavy se...

Garden THE COMING FARMBOY. The time is fast approaching when the intelligent, industrious and energetic farmboy will occupy a more prominent place in the affairs of the State and nation than he has occupied in the past. The rapid pace which has to be taken by people engaged in the professions and In mercantile pursuits in order to successfully meet the competition on every hand is not conducive to the mental endowment of the descendants, and the farmboy of rugged constitution and industrious habits will be In greater demand to take their places than has ever been known.

Scott Favors Corporations With Governor Dencen's administration augumcntcd by the firm position taken bv the Illinois supreme court, it begins to appear that, considering the rela tive positions of the railway corporations and the people of the state, the latter are to get justice. Not that anyone in authority, or otherwise situated, presumes to war upon the rail ways, which are a valuable adjunct to commerce and civiliza tion but that these corporations have gradually trespassed upon the interests of the people, is the action of the higher courts valuable, says the Dixon Daily Star.

Although we pride ourselves upon living' in the Twentieth Century, an enlightened age, it seems that some of the spirit of vandalism, so much apparent in the Middle or Dark ages is still languishing in the veins of some Twentieth Century degenerate. Monday morning our merchants whose places of business are on the north side of Front Street were very much disheartened after coming down town to find their plate glass windows scratched. In most cases the mark does not start from the edge of the glass, or a break would liable to occur at any time. It is quite impossible to say what the outcome of the scratches will be, but should a door be slammed hard or should the window receive a blow i...
