SWEET REST BEYOND THE Rl\ ER.
I sook a place In this Had world.
Where sorrow's not at mortalsliurlod,
Some s;.ot when- man may Hud roposo.
And east aside his weight of woos.
I ask It of the birds and flowers,
I seek It In tbs forest bowers;
But no! In all my soarcb I find
No place that's suited to my mind.
Tell me, thou graceful forest tree!
Hast thou not one small spot for me?
My heart’s so weary of earth's cares;
Canst thou not sooth mo? unawares
The tall tree heaves a long, sad sigh.
As gentle broezos murmur by.
That sigh—i Lttow It answered “na.
I turn, would that I knew tho way!
Across the plain tho forest lies,
In beauty rlolng with the skies;
Is there not some sacred place,
Whero vines and branches Interlace,
To form a quiet cool r etreat,
For man’s tired brain, and wca-y foot?
Alas! I fear It la not there,
For zephyrs murmur "tls elsewhere."
Canst to 1 mo, happy, flowing stream,
Dancing along with crystal gloam,
Hast, In tho bosom of tho earth,
n found ajplaco whero sorrow’s dearth?
Some place whero Joy and rest abound,
Some spot of consocralod ground?
Weklva, loaning on In gloo,
Wafts back the answer, "nay,” to me.
Oh, wondrous moon! thou queon of night!
Toll mo, hast thou not, In thy flight,
Found e’en the vistngo of a spot,
Whore sin and sorrow enter not?
Hast thou not seen, In all thy round,
9 placo where pcaco and rest abound?
A dark cloud hid her face away,
And soft but sad she answored "nay."
I gn/.e up to tho nzuro sky,
An ' there, mctbluks, an angels eye,
ks down Into this soul o' mine,
Breathing words of Import divine.
Tell me, sweet angel, tell me, I pray!
Whero is that placo whero this poor clay
May find repose, fo long besought,
r this life’s >-tern battle's fought?
Mctliinks the oyo has brighter grown,
On snowy wings has nearer flown,
, right within this hea**t of mine,
Again I hear tho tones divine;
But sweeter aro their accents low,
For list! a promise they bes.ow,
vords, with Joy this hoart does quiver
Aro, "rest, sweet rest, beyond the river."

An Unconquerable Yearning.
From the Chicago Tribune.
“I nin not in the habit of smok
ing, Miss Chipperly,” said the young
man gallantly, “but when a lady asks
me to join her in a cigarette I certain
ly cannot refuse. Thank you. You
were saying (puff) ”
‘T was speaking, Mr. Peduncle, of
the fulse standards of (puff) civilizu
tion and refinement that prevail in
society. Too much attention is paid
“It is true,” responded the ycun,
man. ‘‘Our modern society (puff) is
in many respects a mere outside show,
with nothing but hollow forms and
meaningless (puff) conventionalities
“It is this,” said .Miss Chipperly
speaking with great earnestness, “that
prompts me (puff) to defy the arbi
trary and unreasonable exactions and
impositions that self-chosen leaders of
society preset ibe for my guidance,
Who made them to be the judges of
what is right and wrong (puff), prop
er or improper, good form or bad
form? The independent soul spurns
the shackles of (puff) a false creed of
manners and forms and dares to stand
upright i i its own native strength
of manhood and womanhood! 0,
Mr. Pedum le 1” she exclaimed, clasp
her hands excitedly, “have you
never felt an irresistible impulse, a
stern and relentless inward monitor,
deep and unconquerable yearn in
to go forth into the word and lay
hare your whole soul ”
‘ Miss Chipperly,” replied the youth
rising unsteadily to his feet, pale as a
sheet, and flinging, with a nerveless,
trembling hand his cigarette into the
fireplace, “I have! I—I—wow
think I feel it prompting tnc this
moment? G-good evening 1”
And with frantic haste Oliver Ped
uncle rushed forth into a cold, hollow,
heartless, jeering world, in obedience
to one of the mightiest impulses, one
of the most relentless, unconquerable
irresistible yearnings that ever stirred
the inmost soul of mortal man ?

The Educational Test.
The Chicago Inter Ocean, writing
of the educational test in the south
says: “That the states have a con
stitutional fight to impose educational,
or other qualifications upon thir vot
ers, provided that such qualifications
bear upon while and black alike, is
r.ot questionable. As a matter of fact,
every state does except some condi
tion of men from the right of suffrage.
Connecticut and Massachusetts ex
elude those unable to read. Four
states exclude non-taxpayers. Five
exclude members of the United States
army, whether officers or privates.
Most, but not all, exclude idiots and
the insane, and about eight specially
exclude duellists. There is almost an
infinite variety in voting qualifications
of the various states.” It is very plain
that the southern states can regulate
this matter to suit themselves.
It is a mistake to labor when you
are not in a fit condition to do so.
