“They’ll all come back again,” she laid.
That by-gone summer day,
.The while we watched the goodly ships
Upon the placid bay.
“They sail so far, they sail so fast, upon
their shining way,
But they will come agaia, I know, some day
—some other day."
Some day I So many a watcher sighs,
When wind-swept waters moarn.
With tears pressed back, still strives to
Of the glad coming home.
Good ships sail on o’er angry waves, ’neath
skies all tempest gray,
For quivering lips so bravely tell it,
“They'll come again—some day I”
Some day I We say It o’er and o'er,
To cheat our hearts, the while
We send our cherished venires forth,
Perchance with sob or smile:
And tides run out, and time runs on, our
life ebbs tast away,
And yet with straining eyes we watch for
that sweet myth—some day!
Full many a true and heart-sped bark
May harbor find no more,
But hope for her beacon-light will trim
For watchers on the shore;
And those who bide at homo and those upon
the watery way,
In toil or waiting, still repeat, “some day
—some blessed day.’’

Jacksonville, Fla., Nov. 23.—
Train 37 on the Savannah, Florida
and. Western railway met with an
accident five miles cost of Albany,
Ga., at 2:30 this morning.
The train is due here over the
Brunswick and Western connection
at 8 a.m. At the hour indicated
the train wfa moving at a speed of
about forty miles an hour, when a
broken rail threw the rear Pullman
sleeper, the Palmetto, over on its side.
It was dragged three hunded feel, but
before the train could be stopped it
was detached and rolled down over
the embankment. There were eight
passengers on the sleeper, all of whom
were badly bruised and shaken up.
They were nude as comfortable as
possible until the train reaohed Way-
cross, where Surgeon Hoiks of the
Savannah, Florida & Western R. R.,
came abroad and attended the injured
ones. . '■
NO BONES BAD BEEN BROKEN,
and all seven were able to proceed.
The train reached here at 1 p. m. to
day five-hours late. The injured
passengers were at once driven to
Among them are Bishop W nipple

pains in the hips, but they will pro

A Texas editor, having charged that
the father of a rival editor had been in
the penitentiary, was notified that he'
must retract or die. He retracted as
tollows: “We fine that we were mista
ken in our statement last week that
the Bugle editor’s sire had been in the
penitentiary. The efforts of his friends
to have his sentence commuted to
imprisonment lor life failed, and he
was hanged.”—Texas Siftings.
We feel sorry for a boy. To be a
boy of 14 or 15 means to bo the occu
pant of the worst old lumber room in
the house. If there is any money
spent on decoration it is in the girl’s
room, because the girls are supposed
to like pretty things and boys are
“rough.? The average boy carries
a feeling of neglect away down in his
heart, and this feeling often results in
bad boys.—Atchison Globe.

The. people through which the two
railroads are being built are already
realizing the benefits to be derived
from them. The hands engaged in
the work are paid regularly, and
there is consequently a good trade
with the storekeepers.
The Importance of Good Roads.
Wc find the following strong argu
ment in favor of good dirt roads, in a
late issue of the Bufialo Express.
The enormous increase in railroads
has resulted in the proportionate neg
lect of ordinary roadways. The aver
age country road is far from being
what it easily might be, and even its
present condition is not maintained in
an economical manner. This is the
natural result of rapid transit between
markets. But a reaction already be
gins to show itself, as the population
ot the rural districts multiplies, and
the demand for good hitthways increas
es in proportion. Col. Pope is labor
ing to stimulate this improvement by
laying before the people the best ideas
upon road making and road mending.
His connection with the bicycle trade
naturrally interests him on this subject
and has led him to make a thorough
study of it. While wheelmen are anx-
ious for the improvement of the roads,
it is a subject of still greater import,
ance to those who employ teams of
any kind to transport produce. Nine,
ty-nine per cent of every load by rail,
road, steamboat or express has been
carried in a wagon or truck over a
highway. Thus, even steam trans
portation is measurably dependent for
support on thedraftborse and his load
“The prosperity of any city,” says Col.
Pope, “depends largely upon the sur
rounding country, and the better the
road facilities, the faster the country
will grow in population.” This makes
the advantage of good roads mutual
to both city and country. A road
"over which a bicycle may be ridden
with ease and safety will save bund-
reds of dollars to farmers and others
driving heavy loads. The earliest

Recognizing the Republic.
DeValeote, the Brazilian minister,
yesterday received a cablegram from
Rio Janero, stating that United States
minister, Adams, had established rela
tions with the government now in con
trol of aflairs in that country. This
information he communicated to the
state department, and it is reported
that he urged upon the secretaiy the
expediency ofthis government instruct-
ing minister Adams to complete the
act of formal recognition. While it is
doubtless felt by the state department
that the republic of the United States
of Brazil has been established (upon a
permanent basis, it is probable that
the act of formally recognizing it
through our minister, will be postpon
ed until an official head or chief ex
ecutive, chosen in pursuance of tome
regular method, is established. The
meeting of congress in Brazil has been
called for next month, when the new
republic will probably be launched
with complete Organization. When
that is accomplished the question of
formal recognition by this country wil 1
probably hot be delayed.—Chronicle.
If a man wants his wile to believe
that he is a genius, his wisest plan is
to persuade her of it before he gets
married—He will generally find tt
easier then.—Somerville Journal.
She (eagerly)—Well, dearest, did
you speak to papa this morning? He
—Yes, I spoke to him. She (excited
ly)—What did he say? He—He said
“I understand you have just been
down to St. Louis?” “Yes; spent three
days there.” “Did yon see any of
the big bugs of the place!’* “No; I
went to a brand new hotel.”—Judge

upon this truth will be the first to be
benefited by it.
Throughout the state, and the whole
country, are farms, eight or ten miles
from a railroad, whose value is at a
minimum, yet, which, if the roads in
tersecting them were of the first class,
would at once rise in value, were they
twice as far from steam transportation.
Good roads are a national benefit.
All business originates in natural prod
ucts, which must find its way over a
common highway before it can reach
a market and attain its full value.
Smooth, hard roads, well drained, and
easily travenablc through a Urge part
of the year furnish this outlet;and alone
can furnish it. To neglect the high-
ways is worse than to neglect the
fences and woodpiles and weeds.
The World’s Urgent Cities.
The following information is often
inquired for, says the Poll Mall
Gazette, and as it may be useful in
many coses for reference, we have
compiled a table of the largest cities
of the world, with’ their populations
os stated by the latest authorities. In
the absonce of any official census, the
Chinese cities have simply to be esti
mated, and, of course, must be accept
ed as an approximation only. We
have not given any city whose popu
lation U below 500,000, although!
there are many we could enumerate!
which closely approach that figure. Il
will be seen that is the 35 cities tabu
lated below, there are 32,510,31£
souls, or nearly the population of the
British isles, a fact which cannot bq
grasped in a moment by any ordinary
