The golden sun had had hid its face
Behind the western plain;
The birds their songs had ceased to sing,
And silence seemed to reign.
The rising moon began to shed
Its rays of silver light,
The dew drops, on the tender grass,
Shown like diamonds bright.
And while the stars in splendor shown,
I sat in silent thought;
How can it be that cruel fate
Hisso much trouble brought.
Nature’s will is so perverted
I cannot but lament;
Social happiness sacrificed
Without the heart’s consent.
A true affection once rooted
In a heart true and pure,
Can ne’er be eradicated
As long as life endure.
We cannot commend onr desires,
Our strength it is’nt much;
Only an earnest longing soul
Yields to love’s gentle touch.

requesting you to read them carefully:
Humanity with all its fears,
With all its hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
We know what Master laid thy keel,
What workman wrought thy ribs of steel,
Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
In what a forge and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
’Tis of the wave and not the rock;
’Tis but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest’s roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Onr hearts, our hopes, are all with thee!
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our
Our faith, triumphant o’er our fears,
Are all with thee—are all with thee!”

The School Law
We all thought that when the law was
•o changed as to pay teachers quarterly
that there was a great improvement, but
it seems there was a certain amendment
by some fool to change the school year
which passed at the same time.
The school year now commences July
Ist. ia each year and thus counteracts all
the good that might have accrued from
the so called improvement in the law.
All teachers are not men with no families
nor potatoes; A teacher who has two
hundred dollars in patches and has to
move the first of July is at a heavy loss.
The first day in September is the proper
time to commence a school, that just suits
the county and the town and the law
should conform to the best interest of
those concerned. IFhile this is sufficient
reason in its self, there is a more impor-
tant one, which is this. The law makes
no prevision for the time rquired to make
the change, It will cost the state two or
three hundred thousand dollars te change
or the public schools will have to bo sus
pended for the first six months of 1895.
Our legislature should look after this very
important matter and strike the amende
ment changing the scholastic year. If
something is not done evory legislator
will think there is a cat in the meal barrel
before he get* through this business.
