FLASHES OF THOUGHT.
A wonderful stream is the River Time,
As it runs through the realm of tears,
With a faltless rhythm and musical rhyme.
And a broader sweep and a surge sublime—
As it blends with the ocean of years. —[B. F. Taylor.
Haste not; rest not; calmly wait,
Meekly bear the storms of fate.
Duty be thy polar guide—
Do the right whate'er betide;
Haste not, rest not, conflicts past,
God shall crown thy work at last. —[Goethe.
The sky was all beauty, the world was all bliss,
Oh ! who would not pray for an ending like this ?
So my beautiful May passed away from life's even;
So the blush of her being was blended with heaven;
A window was opened-—my darling was gone!
A truant from time, from tears and from sin,
For an angel on watch took the wanderer in.
—[B. F. Taylor.
In every life some rain must beat;
In every life some sunshine is;
Some early find their share of sweet,
Some longing wait their bliss.
Be patient till our joy appears—
Our turn will come some day.
Some day all our birds shall sing,
Some day all our joy-bells ring,
Some day bloom our promised spring-
Some day, some sweet day.
-—[Lewis J. Bates.
Sarcasm is the natural language of the devil.—[Carlyle.
History is but the lengthened shadows of great men.—[Car-
It is certain, my conviction gains infinitely, the moment an-
other person believes with me.—[Novalis.
If thou art wise thou knowest thine own ignorance, and thou
art ignorant if thou knowest not thyself.—[Luther.
There are many wrong ways in doing a right thing, but there
is no right way of doing a wrong thing.—[United Presbyterian.
FLASHES OF FUN.
The merry cockroach swallowed up the editor's new paste,
Then murmured "It is nice to have a literary taste."
Remember, my boy, that the young women hate a fresh young
man as much as they do one that is stale.
Priscilla—Don't you wish you were old Van Bullion's wife ?
Prunella—Nop; but I wish I was his widow.
Father—Do you really desire to make my daughter happy ?
Ambitious Youth—Certainly. Father—Then don't marry her !
Customer—"I want some egg-plant." Grocer—"Yes'um."
Customer—"And I want some that is fresh laid, too." "Yes'um."
"Jimmie, where did you get this five cents ?" "It's the one
you gave me for the heathen, mama." "Then why did you keep
it ?" "My teacher said I was a little heathen."
Silver bullion and coin to the amount of $4,407,848 was ex-
ported in October.
In 1890 there was invested in cotton manufactories, and ma-
Emerson Bainbridge, Yorkshire, England, in three collieries,
employs 15,000 laborers.
Guggenheim says he isn't going to boom silver, but says it is
going up on its own merits.
The deaths caused by the earthquake in Southern Italy num-
ber more than four hundred.
The city of Baltimore has a population of over 500,000, and
is increasing at the rate of 25000 a year.
Jose' Salvador Franch, the Anarchist who threw the dynamite
bomb in the theater at Barcelona, Spain, has been garroted.

the oath of allegiance be '.aken to him under the title of Nicho-
las II. .
The merchandise exports for October were $83,558,372; im-
ports for the same month, $59,681,674, balance in our favor,
There is an unmistakably better business feeling spreading
over the country. Democratic destruction of business interests
is thought to be scotched, if not killed.
The New England "Tariff Reform Club" is going to change
its name to the "Free Trade Club." That's right. Show your
black flag and not sail under false colors.
The Japanese have taken Port Arthur, China, supposed to
have been nearly impregnable. Chinese reported loss in killed
and wounded 20,000; Japanese loss reported "heavy."
There was a mine explosion at Blanche's mine, West Virginia.
Seven were killed and four badly injured. There are no coal

The American Bell Telephone company has issued 5000 new

of the public by this giant monopoly.
The postoffice department under the Democratic administra-
tion shows an increase of expenses of $3,250,309, and at the
same time a decrease of receipts of $816,454—this for the last
fiscal year. Cleveland's management a little while longer would
result in bankruptcy.
The new Cleveland loan of $50,000,000 was taken by a syndi-
cate made up in Wall street at $1.17. Read what Messrs.
Watson & Gibson say about it in their daily New York letter in
this issue. Americans hate idiotic management; that's why sen-
sible Democrats gave the Administration such a black eye in the
late election. What would our readers think of a farmer who
would go and destroy his crops, and then to pay his running ex-
penses mortgage his farm, when he had good silver money lying
idle in his house which he might use to pay them—that's exactly
what the Democratic Administration has done, and is doing.
