Rapidly his wheel3 go round;
OT hough they leave no dust behind them,
Though they leave no rumbling sound;
Silently thjjy bear us onward
Soon our journey will be o'er
Soon the friends with whom we mingle
AVe shall see and hear no more;
Soon our feet shall press the meadows
Of the vast eternal shore.
Flying months and years remind ua
Of the world we'rPpassing to:
Let u3 leave good deeds behind us,
In the world we're passing through,
"Which shall be the seeds of kindness
"Watered by celestial dew,
And shall bear good fruits for others,

Years long after we are singing
In the immortal land above.
Men arc born, and men are dying:
Thousands come not one can stay;
Time is swift, his wheels are flying,
Never ceasing, night nor day,
For the laughter, nor the crying
O Of the stricken or the gay;
Gushing down the God-defying,
They who lgh at Death's delay
And from sorrow, sin and sighing,
Bearing gentle souls away.
Flans and schemes of men and nations,
Hearts and homes and homestead tree,
Granite walls and Art's creations,
All the eye delights to see,

Crumble, tumble, fall and fade;
Oh ! we need a world more cheering,
Free from graves and cypress shade;
Thanks to God! that world we're nearing,
In eternal sapphires laid.
Maine promises to give Grant and
Colfax 20,000 majority or more.
The Democratic papers object
to General Grant because he used to
chop wood for bis living. In fact
they don't like wood choppers, any
how. They have not yet forgotten
that the Illinois rail-splitter split up
the Democratic party in 1860 so
efTectually that they have never yet
been able to pick up all the chips.
New York has had Presidential
candidates at five of thg elections
during the past GO years, and in only
