AFTER THE SHADOWS.
Life may grow darkened, though love has
The strength of its light ground it;
Til! longer and deeper the shadows grow n,
Hide the halo of bliss that crowned it;
Ciotids may float, down on our valley of
And crush our meek flowers with seorn-
«ng, . .
Yet never this song in our spirit
After the shadows, the morning.
Never so closely does pain fold its wings
But the white robe of Sympathy’s near it;
And each Uar that the dark hand of Misery
Brings the touch of a blessing to cheer it;
As fades the dim night at the coming of
When it weaves its bright web of adorn-
So floateth pale grief from our life path
Ccme, alter our shadows, the morning.
A National Flower.
From the New Orleans Picayune.
There is a controversy going on as
to what shall he the national (lower
for the United States. The Now
York Sun is for the sunflower. The
Herald demands that the violet shall
be the national emblem. The Her
ald, in advocating its views, says :
“It is true that the sunflower has
good points. It is hardy, brilliant in
color and constant in its habit of foe
iDg the source of light. But it lacks
the fragrance and daintiness of the
violet. It is almost a weed, if not
The St. Louis Republic has notions
on the subject. It says :
“If the United States are to have a
“national flower” let it be the finest
and fairest of the North American
continent—the flower of the deciduous
magnolia (magnolia makropliylla,)
indigenous in the woods of the central
Mississippi valley. Or if not that, then
the catkin of Missouri black jack.
As for sunflower,’ wc will have none
The magnolia proposed by the Re
public is not our Southern variety,
the grandiflori, the most splendid
native flower on the continent. ■ It is
not to be expected that a specifically
Southern blossom would be chosen as
tho national emblem. But at any
rate, let us have a truly American
flower. The sunflower was sacred in
Egypt, the violet was Napoleon’s fav
orite. Why not choose our mountain
laurel, (kalmia latifolia,) which
crowns the mountains of the United
States from Maine to Alabama. It
exists in immense tracts in the Blue
Ridge and Alleghany mountains and
loves high places. It is a splendid
flower, peculiar to our couutiy and
confined to none of the sections that
have figured in the history of the na
tions; It belongs to all.
HE’S NOT AFRAID.
Capt. John M. Duffy Solves the Pro
‘‘Don’t you like ’em?"
“They’re all right; what’s the matter
Nothing, only I thought you might
not have noticed them. Six dollars!
Think of it! Six dollars! And I
wouldn't give them for a gravel pit in
Tyrone of a turt bog in Donegal. I've
solved this free trade bugaboo. Here
is a suit that was planted in Georgia,
thinned out in Georgia, hoed and
plowed in Georgia, picked in Georgia,
ginned in Georgia, spun in Georgia,
woven, dyed and made up in Georgia,
and now I’m wearing it. Talk about
English free trade! It is physically
and financially impossible to ship cot
ton to England, make it up into wear
ing apparel and ship it back low
enough to compete with our Southern
manufactures. They can’t do it. I’m
in for supporting home manufactures.
How does this fit me?”
The reporter said that the suit fitted
like the paper on the wall, and it did.
A Chapter of Calamities.
From tho Northwest Trado.
A Southern merchant had a chance
the other day to fin’d the first cause of
an accident which happened in his
store. A rattlesnake frightened a cat,
that scared a hen, that knocked a jar
of jam from a shelf, which hit the fau
cet of a barrel of molasses, which turn
ed the faucet, causing the loss of a
barrel'll molasses. But the man who
sends A* boy who orders goods which
nourish the body which supports the
mau who never intends to pay for what
he received is often more expensive
than this rattlesnake.
THE NEW PRIZE STORY
if? eagerly sought for, rea'. with pleasure or dis-
appointment, is then tossed aside and forgot-
ten. Hut Indies who rend of Dr. l’Icrce’s fa
vorite Prescription, rend It again, for they dis
cover in it something to prize-n messenger of
Joyto those suffering from functional derange
ments or from any of tho painful disorders or
weaknesses peculiar to their sex. Periodical
pains, internal inffummatinn and ulceration,
leticorrhen and kindred ailments readily yield
to its wonderful curative and healing powers.
It is the only medicine for women, sold by
druggists, under n positive guarantee
from the manufacturers, Hint it will give satis
faction in every ease, or money will be re
funded. This guarantee lias been printed on
the bottle-wrappers, and faithfully carried nut
for -many years. $1,110 by druggists, or six
