Oh! heaven is nearer than mortals think, When they look with a trembling dread At the misty future that stretches on, From the silent home of the dead. 'Tis no lone isle on a boundless main, No brilliant but distant shore, Where the lovely ones who are called away Must go to return no more. No. heaven is near us; the mighty veil Of mortality blinds the eye, That we cannot see the angel bands, On the shores of eternity. The eye that shuts in a dying hour Will open the next in bliss; The welcome will sound in the heavenly world, Ere the farewell is hushed in this. We pass from the clasp of mourning friends, To the arms of the loved and lost, [ And those smiling faces will greet U31 there, Which on earth we have valued most. Yet oft in the hours of holy thought, To the thirsting soul is given That power to pierce through the mist of sense, To the beauteous scenes of heaven. Then very near seem its pearly gates, Arid sweetly its harpings fall; Till the soul is restless to soar away, And longs for the angel's call. I know when the silver cord is loosed, When the veil is rent away, Not long and dark shall the passage be, To the realms of endless day. THE LIGHT-KEEPER'S SON.

A long, narrow strip of land belonging to the Canadian government and jutting out into the Gulf of St. Lawrence, was, at the time I write of, known by the appropriate title of Cape Hurricane. On account of the dangerous condition of the coast, a magnificent lighthouse bad been built at the extreme point of the cape, and hard by stood the cottage of the keeper, an old seafaring man, named Samuel Johnstone. Besides two daughters he had four sons, the youngest of whom, Hale, aged fourteen years, is the hero of my story. One day in the early part of September, the boys and girls, with the exception of Hale, drove about ten miles inland, for the purpose of being present at a wedding the same evening. Samuel Johnstone, who was a widower, was consequently left alone with his little son. As night approached, the former perceived, with some anxiety, that the sky was overcast by heavy clouds, that a cold, wet wind was blowing from the north,and tbe experienced mariner at once concluded that a great storm was impending. "Hale," he said, ejitering the cottage anTaddressing thtrboyj who was reading by the open fireplace, "run down to the cove and pull up your skiff high and dry. You'll never sail the little Sea Gull again if to-night's storm strikes her." "All right, father," the boy replied with alacrity, for he would not lose his swift and beautiful little pleasure-boat for the world. "I'll take care of the Sea Gull. Will you light the lamp?" "Yes. Hurry up, my boy; for the storm is breaking already. God help those at sea to-night! The wreckers will be bappy in the morning." It may be well to remark here that along the barren shores of Cape Hurricane were scattered the cabins of fugitive Indians, outcasts from their tribes, and here and there might be seen the shanty of some fisherman, who could act also the roles of smuggler and wrecker when occasion required. Hale found his task of placing the Sea Gull beyond danger more difficult than he had imagined. Hence, it was some time before he was ready to return to the cottage, and when he turned his steps in that 'direction the wind was howling dismally, the waves were already lashed into a fury, and the spray from the rocks dashed over the boy, drenching him to the skin. The lighthouse lamp, constructed on the revolving plan, now flashed its radiance through the intense darkness of the night, at intervals of a minute's duration. I love a lighthouse, whether glistening white and beautiful, kissed by the purling ripples of a gentle sea, and bathed in the golden sunshine of a summer day, or standing firm and invincible, lashed by the angry surge, breasting the tempest's wrath, and lifting its fire-crowned head into the black, thundering midnight sky. To me it is at once an emblem of tbe infinite peace which accompanies virtue, arid of the grand, sublime courage which resists temptation. Hale stopped suddenly with an exclamation of surprise and fear as he approached the cottage. Something had happened which made the boy's blood run cold, and drove the ruddy color from his healthy face. He crept up to the window and looked in. One glance, and he understood all. Four wreckers, awkwardly disguised with masks of canvas, had captured and bound the keeper, wresting from him at the same time the great iron key of the lighthouse. These men, for the sake of the booty cast up by the hungry, merciless waves, intended to sacrifice hundreds of human lives. A thrill of horror ran through the boy's frame as he thought of the enormity of the crime that these men were about to commit. A cold perspiration broke over his brow, and he trembled like a leaf. He crouched down in the shadows under the window-sill, and in a few A NEARLY FATAL RUNAWAY started a j horrible ulcer on the leg of J B Orner, Franklin Grove, 111., which defied doctors and all remedies for /four years. Then Bucklen's Arnica Salve cured him.

His father was helpless. It was his duty to act—to outwit these men—to save hundreds of lives now at the mercy of the wreckers Hale had not long to wait. Two men were left to guard the prostrate form of old Samuel JohnHtone, while two others cautiously left the Cottage and ran swiftly toward the lighthouse. The key turned in the lock and both entered. The next instant Hale had followed them. The storm was raging fiercely. At intervals v lightning quivered through the sky, and rolling thunder seemed to shake the very battlements of heaven. The wind howled like a savage monster in search of prey, and flung foam-crested waves upon the beach, like packs of yelping wolves whose white fangs glittered through the darkness. Hale quickly removed his shoes as he gained the entrance of the lighthouse. The door was left open. He listened. Both men ascended the stairs. The boy's heart beat with great thumps against his side as he felt for the key. If he could secure it, it would be easy to lock the wreckers out when they came down, and * then to repair what damage they might have done to the lamp. But, alas! the key was gone. For an instant Hale was confused and disappointed, but it was not long before he had contrived another plan which he determined to put into execution. At all hazards he would follow the wreckers to the top of the lighthouse. Trusting to his perfect knowledge of every nook and cranny in tbe premises, Hale, with the stealthy motion of a cat, ascended the steep, narrow, winding stairs. For the first time in his experience they creaked beneath his weight. Up, up he went, every slight noise sending a thrill of terror through his frame; up past loopholes, which now admitted no single ray of light; up, until the second last round was nearly completed, and then he stopped. What was it that made bim shiver as though afflicted with an ague? What caused him to crouch down in the inky darkness, scarcely three feet from the bottom of the last rickety flight of stairs? He held his breath and listened. Despite the fearful roaring of the tempest without, Hale distinctly heard the low murmur of voices, and the loud, echoing sound of descending footsteps. He recognized the wreckers. One was an Indian; the other Miles Parker, a white man, and both suspicious and dangerous characters. "Ughl" exclaimed the former, as he paused on the last step. "Me hear um is<jser~StrF'"" " The sharp-eared Indian had detected the almost suppressed breathing of Hale. The brave boy never moved a muscle, but the beating of bis heart was painful in that fearful moment. Two steps to one side and either of the men would have trampled on him where he lay. Woudl they make a search? Would they strike a light? "Go on, you coward!" said Parker, impatiently. "There ain't no human bein' but them in the cottage within miles of us. Go on, I tell you!" "Ugh! White man, him fool!" the Indian answered, muttering discontentedly as he passed downward. Parker followed, and soon their echoing footsteps died away in the distance, and Hale rose, with a prayer of thanksgiving on his lips, for the danger was past. Quickly he ran up the last flight of stairs, and one glance showed him all. The wreckers had not extinguished the lamp, but simply broken the revolving apparatus. In another lighthouse further down the coast the light was stationary. Pilots, therefore, would naturally mistake one for the other and run their ships upon the rocks. The plan of the wreckers was perfect in its diabolical ingenuity and in its certainty of success. Hale, however, was equal to the occasion. Closing the heavy door of the little circular apartment, he bolted and barred it firmly. This was scarcely the work of a minute. Then, standing on a stool, he found—oh, joy of joys!—that he could reach the lamp, and move it easily with his bands—in fine, that he himself could perform the work of the revolving apparatus. "One, two, three, four, five, six," he counted, with the regularity of a clock, until he reached "60," and then the brilliant light flashed out upon the darkness, and many a pilot, miles away upon the bosom of tbe stormy gulf, saw the well-known signal and steered his vessel accordingly. It is scarcely necessary to relate how the infuriated wreckers, voting vengeance upon the person who had outwitted them, ran up the narrow stairway and flung themselves again and again upon the stout barrier which separated thpm from the heroic boy. Suffice it to say that amid the howling of the storm, the curses, threats and pistol shots of the baffled ruffians, five feet away from him, Hale calmly and precisely continued counting the weary minutes of that long, terrible night. His arms ached; his limbs could scarcely support him; he was almost overcome with fatigue; but he never flinched—he stood with invincible determination at his post of duty, saving by his exertions the property of anxious merchants and the lives of storm-tossed mariners. And when the anger of the storm sub- WIELDSASHARP Ax.--Millions marvel at the multitude of maladied cut off by Dr. King's New Life Pills, the most distressing, too.

The wreckers, who had made their escape before daylight, were afterward captured and punished as they deserved to be—by imprisonment for a long term of years. When Hale, on descending from the lighthouse in the morning, released his father, the latter wept tears of joy in thanking heaven for so heroic and noble-hearted a son. Later the little fellow received a bronze medal for heroism from the government. Even at this day, visitors to Cape Hurricane, hearing this story told, unite in applauding the grand and noble deed, and in calling down blessings upon the hero, Hale Johnstone, the lightkeeper's ARliOR AND BIRD DAY. PROCLAMATION BY THE GOVERNOR, NAMING FRIDAY, MAY 2. By authority of chapter XIV of the Public Acts of 1899,1 hereby appoint Friday, May 2, 1902, as Arbor and Bird day, and in full approval of the purposes of this act I again urge upon the people of Connecticut the necessity and the duty of taking a more active interest in tree culture, and the preservation of game and song birds. And I especially recommend that those in charge of the schools of the state use every effort to impress upon the rising generation something of the real Value of our forests, shade trees and birds, to the end that Connecticut may not suffer the irreparable loss that will surely come to the communities that fail to give constant and intelligent protection to these invaluable gifts of nature. Given under my hand and seal of the state, at the capitol in Hartford, this sixteenth day of April, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and two, and the independence of the United States the one hundred and twenty-sixth. GEORGE P. McLEAN. By His Excellency's command: CHARLES G. R. VINAL, Secretary. £ The war revenue reduction bill, which has passed both house and senate, wipes out all of the taxes imposed in order to carry on the war with Spain. These taxes were reduced in 1901 about $40,000, 000. The present measure will reduce the revenue to the extent of about $78,- 000,000, in detail as follows; Manufactured tobacco, $27,000,000; brewers' products, $25,000,000; tea, $10,000,000; special taxes, $4,500,000; legacies, $2,800, - 000; spirits,"^QOO,000; stock transactions, car tickets, etc. ,$8,000,000. The new bill will go into effect July i, except for the abandonment of the duty on tea, which will not become effective until Jan. 1, 1903. The White House at Washington, for the first time since President Arthur's administration, is to have a thorough renovation on artistic lines. So heavy has grown the list of favored guests in the Roosevelt household that they have found it necessary to have recourse to the famous East room as a dining-room, which, by the way, was a part of the original design of the house. One feature of the plan of renovation is to turn this great East room into a state dining-room, involving a transformation of the decorations into those of the colonial style, with open fireplaces. The present state dining-room will be used for small dinner parties. It also will be redecorated. The entrance hall also is to be renovated, in order that in general tone and character of decoration, it may accord with the embellished East room. To defray the expense of this undertaking, an estimate of about $30,000 was submitted to Congress. Common Sense In Lav. When we are told that every law must be enforced to the letter though the heavens fall, it has a brave sound, but a wise regard for the public good demands that the laws be BO executed that the heavens may not fall. The maxim that "the extreme of the law may be the extreme of injustice"— "summum jus, summa injuria"—is of venerable age and has had the approval of the best jurisprudence as well as the best statesmanship of many centuries. It is not mere "sophistry"— as somewhat hastily, I suppose, it has been called—but it may well be quoted in support of the application of simple common sense to complicated and perplexing exigencies. I think there is not a government in the world, not even the most conscientious, that does not refrain from _ rigidly enforcing to the letter some laws standing on its statute books, either because they are antiquated or because such enforcement is practically impossible or, if beneficial, would result in evils greater than those •which those laws are to prevent or repress.— Carl Schurz. Preparing Dales. The preparation of dried dates is carried on largely at Awabi, and as the season had now commenced I took the opportunity to observe the process and was taken round the factories by the sheik. The dates selected are picked before they are quite ripe. The factory had a chimney about fifteen feet high and contained several open, circular, copper boilers, capable of holding five gallons each and nearly full of water. Into these vessels the dates are put and allowed to simmer over a slow fire. As the water in the copper decreased from evaporation it was filled up again, but it gradually became inspissated by the extraction of the juice of the date. The fruit is left in the water about half an hour and is then taken out and spread on mats or cloths in the sun to dry, after which it becomes hard and of a pale red color. It is exported in large quantities from Muskat to India.—Geographical Journal. A Survival of the Primitive. A Philadelphia philosopher thus (explains the general preference for a wall table in a restaurant: "Primitive man ate in peril. The cave bear, the saber tooth tiger, even some warrior of his own kind, was apt at any moment to leap upon him and to devour his food and perhaps himself. Therefore he took his meals with his back against a cliff or in the corner of two adjoining cliffs, if possible, and with the open country before him. That, you see, was the safest way for him to eat. He could not then be surprised. "And we still have in us that memory of the primitive man, and we still unconsciously, when we sit down to our repasts, choose places that give us a wall for our protection. That and not a desire to see things is what causes us to pick out walls and corners. You can see as well from the middle of a TOOHS ©r from any other place, you know." * "Hunm^i" Art Criticism. The old negro "mammy" of the antebellum type, is fast disappearing, and when one does meet with the genuine article there is generally reason to remember the occasion pleasantly, says the Baltimore Sun. Recently a gentleman was making some purchases in a small grocery in west Baltimore, when there entered the store one of those characters belonging to-the days gone by. Hanging conspicuously on the wall of the store was a large lithograph depicting an airily clad youngster in R field of waving grain. The picture immediately caught the eye of the newcomer. "Who dat?" she asked the clerk. "Why, that is George Washington," replied the clerk, with a twinkle in his eye. "Huh!" grunted aunty dubiously. "Hit luks mo' lak Moses in de ambush." Lincoln used to be fond of telling a story of a lawyer in a Woodford county town who desired the nomination for county judge. On the morning preceding the evening on which the county convention was to meet he applied to the livery stable keeper in his village for a horse and buggy in which to drive to the county town, sixteen miles distant, where the convention was to be held. "Give me the best and fastest horse you have, Sam," said he, "so that I will have time to go around and see the boys before the convention comes in." The liveryman, however, was supporting a rival candidate, and gave the lawyer a horse that outwardly appeared perfect, but which broke down entirely before half the journey was completed, so that when the candidate arrived the convention had ad-; journed and his rival had been nominated. On his return to the stable late the following afternoon, knowing that it was useless to resent the trick played upon him, he said to the owner: "Look here, Smith, you must be training this horse for the New York market. You expect to sell him to an undertaker for a hearse horse, don't you? Well, it's time wasted. I know from his gait that you have spent days training him to pull a hearse, but he'll prove a dead failure. Why, he's so slow he couldn't get a corpse to the cemetery in. time for the resurrection!" THE GREAT DISMAL SWAMP of Virginia is a .breeding ground of malaria germs. So is low, wet or marshy ground everywhere. These germs cause weakness, chills and fever, aches in the bones and muscles, and may induce dangerous maladies. . But Electric Bitters never fail to destroy them and cure malarial troubles. They will surely prevent typhoid. _ " We tried many remedies for malaria and stomach and liver troubles," write* John Charleston of Byesville, O., "but-never found anything-as good as Electric Bitters."

A queer custom, which prevails at no other court than that of Great Britain, is the announcement at the beginning of each .course at a dinner of the name of the cook who has prepared the dishes served. The origin of this custom dates back to the reign of King George II., who made a great favorite of one of his cooks, promoting him to the rank of chief over the heads of" all his seniors. This, of course, created great jealousy, and every effort was made to oust him from royal favor by rendering him responsible for the failures which were laid upon the king's table. Greatly incensed thereby and fearing to lose his post, he complained to the Iring in person, who immediately gave orders that henceforth whenever a dish was placed before him the name of the cook responsible for its success or failure should be announced in an audible tone. Select. Once when passing through a cemetery in Lenox- Eliot Gregory was surprised to see that the members of one old New England family had been buried in a circle, with their feet toward its center. He asked the reason for this arrangement, and a wit of that day, daughter of Mrs. Stowe, replied, "So that when they rise at the last day only members of their own family may face them!" ' - By an ingenious method of measurements, the movements of the top of the Eiffel tour, when swayed by the wind, have been studied, and it has been discovered that the general effect of the wind is to make the top of the tower describe an eclipse.
