I and beside her bier My soul must speak and your soul must hear If she was not all that she might have been was the the Whose was the fault if she did not grow Like a rose in the Do you know? Does a lily grow when its leaves are Docs it bloom when its root is winter For a little while when you first were wed Your love was like sunshine round her shed Then a something crept between you two You led where she could not follow you With a man's firm tread you went and came You lived for wealth for power for fame Shut into her woman's work and ways She heard the Nation chant your praise But you had dropped her hand the while What time had you for a kiss a You two with the same roof overhead Were as far apart as the sundered dead You in your strength and prime and faded before her time Tis a common story This rose you say You laid in her hand When did you give her a flower Ah What matter when all is Yet stay a moment you'll wed again I mean no reproach tis the way of men But I pray you think when some fairer face Shines like a star from her wonted place That love will starve if it is not fed That true hearts pray for their daily bread Afternoon for March LOSING THEM BOTH The dearest little rosebud of a girl with cheeks where a pink flush came and went and blue eyes with long Jashes aud hair that waved without the aid of pins or irons I always thought her name the most suitable that could have been chosen fur her though the only wonder is that old Farmer did not name his daughter Rebecca or Sarah Jane Roseanna bad fortunately been her grandmother's name however and so she came as Rose Budd into the world for Mr Budd had made the Anna a mid- dle name instead of the first and dropped it When I began to like Rose Budd so much that I seriously thought of proposing to her Roper liked her too He was five years older than I a plain man of twenty-nine with faint sears on his face and a bald spot on the top of head A poor man studying medicine late in life because he had not been able to study in his hoping for his diploma in a year with a practice all in the future and I at twenty-four had the estate fur my own and money enough to live on comfortably There he no comparison drawn be- tween us I hoped that would not be favorable to uie and I coolly though politely took my place before him and cut him on all occasions with Rosebud I young and handsome and as I supposed elegantly dressed he plain poor and shabby looking ten years older than he really was What chance had he against And so he slipped quietly into the ground and I made love to Rosebud and one day kissed her on the cheek and told her life would not be worth having if I could not win her and she said nothing but all the roses and she let me kiss her again After that we walked boldly arm in arm through the village and friends teased me and the beaux dropped away and one day I gave her a ring to wear upon her left band forefinger Two weeks from that day I went to don on business 1 intended to stay a week but I was so successful that I remained longer finally I went into business in the city and began to know people I visited at the houses of wealthy chants and mol their wives and daughters I shall not copy that cowardly letter love me then and does not now and I had here lost her And Roper had won her When it was in the box I did try to fish 1 live alone at now an old it out again but it was too late bachelor with a limp and the dyspepsia It had gone and its she and a of little blossoms Thanks Miss Budd for your friendly flourish over the way at Dr Roper's i anxiety concerning my am sure Sometime perhaps I may to ft City Mr Budd does not share perhaps Flint would have me and ao would the worst of all the lines by which I told Widow Wiggins but whatever I may her not in frank honest words but in a gather to wear over my heart it will not De manner that no woman could fail to under- i a Rosebud I threw that away long ago stand that I did not remember and Roper picked it up and it makes his that we were betrothed I life fragrant After that no more letters in yellow en- came to trouble me and I paid at- tention to Miss Hanover and invested my money according to Mr Hanover's advice And days and weeks and months rolled by and if I thought of my little Rosebud withering because the sunlight of my love was withdrawn from it crossed my mind I drove it away with a sigh I could not help it I was fate Fate meant me for Miss Hanover and we had met that was all No not quite all for one ber it was the day after a splendid ball and I called on Miss Hanover whose escort I TO BE REMEMBERED Six Attempts to Destroy by Fire on a Sunday Wildest Excitement in tne Capital City COLUMBUS March night was one that will be long remembered by the citizens of Columbus About 8 o'clock the alarm of fire was sounded calling the ment over the river and into the eastern portion of the city The fire was found to be in the three story extensive brick house of William Moneypenny which was i filled with stearine flower etc j By the time the fire department reached Painful Consequence of His the premises the flames had gained such headway that all hopes of saving the ing were abandoned The worked heroically but failed to master the fire fiend until all combustible matter had been A DEATH An Accident Which Compelled a Man to Starve to Death False Weeks Food Without PHILADELPHIA February ing to the report of a local paper a man IDSt had been the night before one day I made this latter statement to Violette Hanover and she having heard bestowed on me her most aristocratic stare and asked me if I did not know that she had been engaged to Mr for six long months And to be married next week Mr added she So you see you must be mistaken about fate And you have only been flirting with said I bitterly Do you know that you gave me reason to hope everything from I know it is time for me to dress for a she said so you must say good afternoon and don't look so ridiculously tragic Mr I hate scenes And I felt that I deserved it all as I went for the last time down the steps of over mansion In a fortnight was Mrs In a month Mr over of those who take a foreign trio with plenty of money in their pockets while others lie crushed beneath the fragments oF the broken benches at home went with his I had come to the city with a moderate competence I dad increased it by speculation until I was IS STILL IS THE Clothing AT THE IS THE BLOCK nd has just opened a STOCK OF absolutely wealthy Now I found myself almost poor There remained to me only the property which must bo turned into a farm and I myself must leave my hope of being one of the city millionaires behind mo and become a plain man of the same social status as Rose Budd's father without his comfortable knowledge of money in the bank to me However with the of the ble fortune the circle which gathered about Hanover had been seemingly scattered to the the people knew that Miss lette had jilted me and knew also that my money was gone The city had lost many of its charms and I wrote to the old woman who had kept the house at for my widowed father until his death to make it ready for my return Then sending the furniture of my lor rooms and packing my smaller ings in a trunk I started homeward I must go back to and become a farmer I should find Rosebud fading gradually away of course aud yet I knew that she would be prettier than ever How she had loved ungrateful I had been for that love Now I would make amends I would write as many repentant letters as were necessary and she would of course for- give me No woman ever forgets or ceases to love any man she has ever loved you know Yes after a little maidenly tance Rosebud would bloom again fur me I WHS sure of this as the train bore me ward as I was sure that the moon would rise that night There is no adage more true than the one that declares that misfortunes never come alone but always in troops Often of course one brings the other In my case the anxieties that had trooped so thickly about me made me and so led to a severe accident Having alighted at a certain station I delayed my return to the carriages until they had started I remember running ter them and do I remember dreams pain an ing in a little room with white curtains and a toilet table and a vision charmingly dressed Then some one Yes yes yes I think he'll do And understanding that this was my friend Hiram Roper I How did I come trying to sit up and failing in the attempt said Hiram wife and I were at the station and I saw you were a good deal and wo brought you on You know this is my said I And you are ried and in practice I suppose said Roper Oh yes getting on famously And you've had a bad time but you'll be all Come and him he will Rosebud And there was Rose After 1 had ruminated on that fact a few minutes I felt that truth was stranger than fiction Are you better Mr saic died here on the 4th singular circumstances His name was Wagonseller He was thirty-eight rears of age and was employed in a cotton at One evening in De- cember last he entered a Chestnut street to get supper When about through the meal he suddenly felt something sharp and pointed going down iis throat causing him intense pain For i moment he thought he had swallowed a large sharp piece of bone but putting his land to his mouth instinctively on feeling the pain he found that his false teeth were missing and he knew that it must bave been they which had gone down his The teeth were three in number They were fastened to a silver plate and bad been in his mouth for many years Recently the hooks holding them in place had worn loose and the artificial teeth had annoyed him by falling from his mouth several times Plate and all had gone iown his throat and he could feel them lodged against his breast Alarmed and suffering intensely Wagonseller went to his home which was in a suburb of the in Paxson street be- tween Fifty-first and Fifty-second He could cat no solid food and for two days took nothing into his stomach On the third day he managed to force down a tle bread and milk On this day the ferer went to the University Hospital to see Dr who after examining him seemed to have little hope of saving 1 Ins life Wagonseller then came to Philadelphia to stop at his house to receive treatment from her physician Dr art of No Green street THE MAN GROWS WORSE Dr Stewart was called on to visit the on the fifth day after the rence He advised him to take a swallow of gin as the readiest means of dislodging the teeth which still remained in his throat The patient followed his advice and almost immediately felt the teeth ing down But this only lead to a worse result The teeth moved down and lodged consumed Just about the time the fire per a man jts fury and the firemen were under very I of back to their and by degrees I began to understand that for this Plow an only sold in vicinity by SHARP SONS SEW PHILADELPHIA OHIO

homespun her education poor She was very good excessively good but not an elegant lady Then too she sent me notes in big buff envelopes and used a little i for the personal pronoun which should have been honored by the capital I And Farmer Budd with his uncouth coats and wonderful hats and long gling beard and hair was not the sort of a law I should and there was Miss Hanover Perhaps the was the most powerful one of all in the working of my ment for Miss Hanover was beautiful all millinery and upholstery and papa over was called Prince Hanover by his friends and had his dinner table set for forty every day and wore a fortune of dia- monds on his bosom and made friends wherever he went by his lavish gifts and he was the greatest stock gambler in don Papa Hanover had smiled on me and counseled me how to invest and dined me with his daily friends and Violette love this is Mr Markham one of those country gentlemen we are ing to make city And Violette had smiled radiantly upon me Since then how many a tete-a-tete had I not had many I was learning to dance with had forgotten to write to Rosebud for two weeks Then came an anxious little note on thin blue paper beginning Dear take cp my pen in hand much troubled in mind regarding you I know you would write if you was not sick 0 Henry if you are sick do and let father come up and see to you Henry I will not write more until I hear from am too in my mind We are all well and in the hopes that you the same blessings i remain Yours truly ROSE P let come if you are sick I am so in my mind I hastened to reply the awful dread ol Mr Budd's fatherly care hanging over me BO to speak by a single hair I wrote to Rose but Here a most poetical story worked out in proper persons A and repentant hero I had been sent back o Rosebud to be nursed and forgiven Had she not forgiven me she would never bave flown to my aid All that I could do was to squeeze her hand She took it away rather quickly but about one inch and trance to the stomach above the en- Had they passed into the stomach according to medical the chief danger in the case would have been over But lodging as they did the patient could swallow nothing not even milk or water It was absolutely ble to get anything down his throat Milk was recommended but when it would be poured down as soon as the glass would be removed from his lips it would come back exuding from ears mouth and nostrils The strangest of all was what followed The lived for seven weeks without swallowing a morsel of food or a drop of water liven the juice of an ange he could not From a stout hearty man weighing probably 190 pounds he dwindled away to a mere skeleton His hands became horrible to look at by reason of their loss of flesh Strangely enough too all this time the man who was perfectly conscious and rational had no appetite no craving for food The smell of victuals he said made him sick From the time he went to his house four days after the accident he had not stood on his feet lying alternately on a bed and in an chair This ture he kept at the recommendation of his physician until from lack of food he be- came so weakened that there was no option in the matter and he had tn lie all the time Operation with an instrument was suggested by his physician but this his sister would not consent to unless ance could be given that it would result in saving bis life This of course the could not promise and no such ration was tried SEVEN WEEKS WITHOUT FOOD After being for over seven weeks out food Wagonseller died death resulting from inanition or in other words tion To the very last he had no appetite for food The day before his death ho began to get short of breath and told his relatives that he felt himself dying Up to the last hour he retained his senses and talked freely about his case instructing his relatives to have a post mortem tion made upon his body In accordance with his request the examination was made by Drs Stewart and Agnew The plate with the teeth in it was found about one inch and a half above the entrance of the stomach the hooks firmly imbedded in the flesh There were marks at certain inter- thinking of going back to their respective houses there rang out a second alarm It was from the eastern portion of the city The cause was a burning stable which was destroyed Loss The third alarm originated only a short distance from this latter one and was also a stable and was likewise entirely consumed The fourth alarm was only a couple of squares from the third fire was likewise a stable Here the flames found food In the in- closure were two horses and a peddler's wagon filled with notions One of the horses was burned to a and the other so horribly scorched that ils eyes shriveled up in their sockets and poor brute was shot to relieve it of its sufferings The piteous moans that the animal gave ed human in their misery The total loss at this place was the water from the last fire ceased to drip from the gaunt pieces of timber that arose from out the smoking embers when the fifth alarm was struck upon the bells This blaze like the rest was discovered to be in a stable which the destroying flames gerly lapped into ruins Loss An- other fire a short distance from the last was discovered in a hay loft but happily extinguished before any alarm was given It is given up by all to have been the work of incendiaries the object of which was plunder and perhaps murder The night was most propitious being dark as Erebus About midnight a sighing wind sprang up nied with a drizzling rain as the night wore apace Many of the street lamps were extinguished and all things conspired to render it truly a such it was The two companies of the 0 N G were ordered to hold themse ves in readiness to be called out at any moment Many gentlemen armed with shot guns patrolled their premises and showed by their determined looks that they fully realized the awful danger which threatened them While the different Ores were burning men and women bare headed rushed wildly through the streets reminding one of the description days in Paris It was a night lone to be remembered and can only be compared in the excitement it created with the firing on Fort Sumpter Several strangers were arrested charged with being implicated in the base incendiaries but as a matter nothing only tial evidence is them Had it been positive Judge Lynch would have decided their fate THE DEVIL FISHING The devil sat by the river's The stream of Time where you'll always find Casting his line in the rushing tide And landing the fish on the Dank behind him He sat at ease in a cosy nook And was filling his basket very fast While you might have seen that hit ly hook Was differently baited for every cast He caught em as fast as a man could Little or big it was all the same One bait was a check for a round amount An Assemblyman it and out he came He took a gem that as Saturn shone It rank in the water without a sound And caught a woman who long was known As the best and purest for miles around Sometimes he would laugh and sometimes sing For better luck no one could wish And he seemed to know to a dead sure thing The bait best suited to every fish Quoth Satan The fishing is rare and And he took a drink somewhat en- And yet a parson swam round the line That e'en the most tempting of baits re- fused He tried with his gold and his flashing gems Hung fame and fortune upon the line with embroidered hems But still the dominie made no sign A woman's garter went on the hook I have him at quoth the devil brightening Then Satan's sides with laughter shook Ae bo landed the preacher as quick as lightning TOTAL Reno Destroyed by FirC One Million SAN FRANCISCO March Reno Nevada dispatch At about a quarter to 6 o'clock this morning an alarm of fire was sounded The fire commenced in some wooden building at the west of the streets back of the Masonic block A fearful pale from the west at the time and the water could be got on the

shoote with a rifle glass balls which are sent into the air as fast as a man can throw them Presently Abner Byng who was sitting by That's noth ing What's Why that shooting Did you know Tom No Well Potter was the best hand at s rifle I ever saw could beat this man Carv er all hollow I tell you what I've seen this man Potter do You know may be along there in the cherry season Mrs Pot ter would want to preserve some cherries so Tom would pick em off tor her and how do you think he'd stone Why just fill his gun with bird shot and get a boy to drop half a bushel of cherries at one time from the roof of the house And a came down he'd fire and take the stone clean out of every cherry in the lot a positive He might occasionally miss one but not often But he did bigge shooting than that when he wanted to What did he do Why Jim you know him Well Tom made a bet once with Jim that he could shoot the button off his coa by aiming in the opposite direction am Jim took him up Did he do He fixed himself in and aimed at a tree in front of him Th ball hit the tree caromed hit lamp post caromed and flew behind Tom and the button off as slick as a whistle Yoi bet he did it That was fine shooting Yes but I've seen Tom Potter bea that I've seen him stand under a flock o wild of them coming lik the kill them so fast that th front of the flock never passed a given line but turned over and fell down so that i looked like a brown and feathered Tom did it by having twenty-three loading rifles and a boy to hold em H always shot with that kind You say you saw him do this sort o Yes and better than that too Why tell you what I've seen Tom do I saw him once set up an Indian rubbe target of 800 feet and hit the bull's ey twenty-seven times in one minute with on He would hit the target the ba would bounce back into the rifle barrel jus as Tom had put in a fresh charge of pow der and so he kept her going backward an forward until at last he happened to mov his gun and the bullet missed the of the barrel It was the biggest thing ever saw the very biggest except one What was Why one day I was out with he was practicing and it came on to rain Tom didn't want to get wet and he had n

arrival in that city of the military officers who were gone while traveling n the neighborhood of Bismarck by a arty of road agents We Of course the military gentlemen are somewhat annoyed at the gossip which has sprung from the humiliating circumstances it army officers being captured and robbed a little party of masked freebooters tut the had the drop upon the unsuspecting passengers and what could The officers may have been having their arms in their lands instead of underneath the seats of their vehicles and in not having their guard immediately at hand but when they were ordered to throw up their hands in he presence of experienced road agents he time for the exercise of valor was past and discretion was about all that was left All the circumstantial evidence now at land leads to the belief that the robbery was deliberately planned and that the knew that the ambulance con- a considerable sum of money Lieut Rioe inquired of the captain of the whether any wagon had passed on in advance and was answered in she negative But then the robbers were not communicative by any means The robbers spoke to each other by numbers instead of by names While they were oing through the officers and Mr Cohn Number Two about the Indians in the country and the robber Tell into the lieutenant's trap but was quickly snatched out by the captain of the gang singing out Number Two don't talk so much Rice wanted to see what kind of a voice the robber had The captain saw the point and kept his numbers one two and three quiet The captain did what little talking was necessary Silence was golden Talking of legs Mr Cohn says that they were about all of the person that was ble the black masks completely Covering their faces and their buttoned coats giving all of them a similar appearance Mr Cohn critically examined one of the two pads whose legs was encased in brown overalls and he was about to sue his inspection when the road agent in his rear ordered him to keep his eyes to the front if he wanted to save his head Colin remarked that his hands were cold and he was trying to keep them warm Stand just where you are and I'll get your and going to the ambulance be got the gloves and gave them to Cohn These road agents by the way were teous and high-toned and though ally harsh in their language they were not disposed to treat their victims with un- necessary violence And I
