THE PSALM OF LIFE.
Tell me not in mournful numbers,
"Life is but an empty dream 1"
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.
Life is real 1 Life is earnest !
And the grave is not its goal ;
"Dust tbou art, to dust returnest,"
Was not spoken of the soul.
Kot enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each tomorrow
Find us farther than today.
Art is long, and time is fleeting,
And our hearts though stout and brave,
Stilt, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave,
in the world's broad field of battle,
In the bivouhcof life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle,
Be a hero in the strife !
Trust no future, bowe er pleasant!
Let the dead past bnry its deadl
Act act in the living present!
Heart within, and God o'erhead!
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind ns
Footprints in the sands of time
Footprints that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing shall take heart again.
Let us then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.

Value of Toe. la Walking.
The idea that the lesser toes are neces
sary in walking is generally entertain
ed, and it has been a surprise to Euro
pean physicians to learn that amputa
tion of all the lesser toes of both feet
has been followed by complete recovery
and the restoration to usefulness of both
the feet operated upon. The feet healed
slowly after the operation, bnt very
steadily and without unpleasant com
plications. The operati ju was perform
ed, and in a little more than a year and
a half the patient danced all night and
experienced no iucunveuieuce whatever

her ago are fond of. The cause of the
trouble was originally chilblains, which
was neglected nntil it produced con
traction of the muscles with the most
intense pain, which was at times so
severe that she could not enjoy the
necessary amount of sleep. Surgeons are
of the opinion that a great deal of need
less suffering is endured which might
be relieved by extremely simple opera

How to Prevent Croup.
We have two children who are subject
to attacks of croup. Whenever an attack
is coming on my wife gives them Cham

prevents the attack. It is a household
necessity in this county and no matter
what else we run out of, it would not do
to be out Chambprluin's Cough Remedy.

Wagner Sold "Lohengrin" For SO.
"When-in the fifties-. Wagner's work's
began to spread through Germany, one
town after another put 'Tne Flying
Dutch,' 'Kiensi,' 'Tannhauser' Hiid
'l.ohemtiln' on its theatre's program,"
writes Richard Wagner's biographer in
tiie October Ladies' Home Journal.
"At that epoch theatres In Germany
gave no percentage whatever. The only
obligation the law imposed on them was
to buy the score. The price of fhe score
was fixed in each special ease between
the theatre and the author, and varied
according to the population of the town
and the success expected. Once the
score was bought, the theatre had no
further obligation toward the author.
Wagner usually got from forty to eighty
dollars for a score, and rarely one hun
dred and twenty dollars. What Wsgner
got -once for all-tor 'Riensi, 'The Fly
ing Dutchman," rannhausei' and' Lohen
grin' amounted, therefore, all told, to
something like fifty to one hundred
dollars from each theatre which put
these works on the stago.

have been the sale of the scores to the
publishers, several of whom have made
fortunes with them. But the fact that
