Ol'U Ot.l) . CIKK)1,
Here around this little threshold
l'lrt we sKv the eepliv shine;
Here it was that tiiytlc f.incy
Wove hertender thoughts with mine.
Here we listened for the echoes
Of a vuiee a from afar,
Telling of the perished legends.
And the glorious feats of war.
Here o'er History's page we shuddered
While Home's glittering legions tread
Onward o'er tho helpless living,
Onward o'er the sacred dead.
Here within these wall resounded
Curse of man and moan of brute,
And in rapture we have listened
To the. Grecian's pleading lute.
Hero we saw how man, progressing,
Upward climbed the golden stair.
Ami 1 ween we dreamed of terror
Crouching in his kennel there!
In this room and witli thee schoolmates
We have dreamed the dream of Kate
We have seen the slow progression --
Eirst to think, then calculate.
And how slow the mind, encumbered
With some old relentless fear,
Seems to march with muilled drum beat,
And a shadow hovering near.
Here we heard the harpstrings tremble
Listened to the Tales rehearse.
Here we learned our youthful lessons
Eratments from the Universe!
Hero we found the hidden treasure
'Neath the towers, by Ignorance reared,
Here our youthful minds oft wondered
At the ghosts our fathers feared.
Day by day, with measured heart beats,
Has the clock struck otVtho hours.
And we envied Adam's school days
There in Eden's leafy bowers!
Eor we saw our sturdy master
With precision mark each rule,
While ignoble Adam wandered
Through creation's new-made school!
Often down the pages gazing,
We have heard the Muttering wings
That have borne down through the ages
Argosies Jof,' hiuhcr things.
Often wondering at the changes
That have kissed thin land of ours,
We have seen a high perfection
Growing brighicr with tho hours.
And the hand outstretched, seemed reach
Down to lead us higher still ing
How the world has bowed, in silence,
To Progression's mighty will!
And we deem that life the rarest
That progresses day by day,
Eor the grander thoughts shall conquer,
And the low shall pass away.
Some dav. when the world grows riper
With it.", yellow harvest bent,
Men shull look in sadness backward
To the precious days misspent.
Some dav, when the heart grows kinder
And the passions all have llown,
Men shall see the broken signets
They, in tears, will have to own.
They will hear their weeping mothers
Pleading only for a word,
And in anguish, swelling deeper.
They shall feel their bosoms stirred.
We shall see tho low-browed monsters,
That have hovered round our path,
Turn aside at our progression
And in silence nurse their wrath.
Onward goes the beaming beacon,
Ami we follow in the wake.
For we see the shining eeptro
Where tho surging billows break.
And we see the tangled fo.esH
With their spangled wealth of gold,
And as day by day progresses
We some secret gem unfold.
Hope springs bright,;and Patience tarries;
Labor works with willing hands;
While all'cction iluds the corals
Hidden in Life's shining sands.
Thought grows deeper with a usage.
Genius leaps o'er barriers high,
While the magic wand of Progress
Spreads its beauties down the sky.
Toll and Patience walk together
Hand in hand, through every clime.
While true manhood leads thee onward
With a leadership sublime.
There is some gift freely given
Something dwells in every heart;
Hut It lacks the spark of reason
That shall give tho llame a start.
Every being is a monster
If but monster thoughts prevail;
Rut the reiiMin, lying Idle,
Leaves us drifting with tho gale,
Men are mummies; imitation
Seems the strongest force, indeed.
Hut in every soul thero smoulders
Some of Learning's richest seed.
With u common purpose, living,
All men drift upon the tide.
Weaker wills and feebler fancies
Does our destinies divide.
And as every struggle onward
Heaps mimic competition here,
Every virion moment passing
Ilrings its own attendant tear.

AnIiIiiiiiI Woolen Mills.
Tlio Ashland Woolen .Mills, tho prin
cipal manufacturing institution of the
town, increased its products during tho
year 1888 over those of uny other year.
The mills employ HQ people, and dur
ing the past year they used more than
100,000 pounds of wool. They made
(ifi.OOO yards of fino flannels, 3942
yards of cassimeres, 1100 pairs of
blankets, 17 dozen large shawls and a
large number of small shawls, stock
ings, yarns and etc. Tho woolen mill
still bears a prominent part in the
maintuinanco of tho town, as it lias
done for years past. Ashland Tidings.
What would bo tho result to Union,
if tho proposed woolen mill, that so
much talk was made about last sum
mer in this city, had teen erected?
The parties proposing to build that
mill, proposed to consume IfiO.OOO or
500,000 pounds of wool. If a mill
working up 100,000 lbs of material is
good for Ashland, a mill working up
four or five times that amount would
certainly be a good thing for Union.
