Othcr. can seek as well as I,
Uy exercise of mind.
Where'er I go. what'er I meet,
I'll t'trivp to understand,
Let error should betray my feet,
And I loc self command.
I'll strlvo to know If I ntn right;
Then in the right I'll stay,
Till f win learn a greater light,
To guldo mu on my way.
Think not that I'll receive your views,
lli'cnufio you them believe;
In wisdoin'ti soiiIch they must bo weighed
Before them I'll receive.
If vou believe that 1 am wrong,
Willi thoughts and mind astray,
Show me your pure and better light,
That I may tee my way.
I'll not presume my thoughts all right,
Hut Mill my mind is free,
And I will iiho It with my might,
Wliilo more light hope to see.
I hope, I journey on my wav,
Midst scenes of Joy and sorrow;
I have learned some since yesterday,
And more will learn tomorrow.

Editor Oukoo.v Scout :
November eighth, uiul n perfectly
cloudless sky by day, and crystal
heavons studded with golden nails by
night. At dawn tho mercury stands
at forty five; at noon at Beven
ty, with sixty at sunset. And such
sunsots. Our language has not words
to doscribo their beauty ; human ability
no power to renew them in pen
pictures, or trace upon canvass. They
cotno at tho closo of oach day in their
rocal splendor; painted by tho finger
of tho Divino Artist, upon ono-third of
tho heavens ; and framed in a halo of
God's own glory. In tho glories of
theso sunsets, man has no ownership,
no monoply. They aro tho proporty
of tho rich and tho poor nliko ; of tho
whitoman and his darker brother; tho
Creator's gift of beauty to all. We
know what tho beauties of a northern
landscape of deeidious trees can be.
Wo havo known tho orango and tho
and the gold ; tho green and tho rod
upon tho leaves of tho mountain for
ests, from our youth up. Wo have
lain upon tho green sod under a late
fieptonibor sun, or in early Octobor,
drinking in theso beauties, whon each
mountain was, to tho cyo, only a mass
of variegated color and beauty. And
wo tried to take in largo amounts, for
woll wo know that it would soon fade ;
that tho soro and dead brown would
toou clothe tho forests, thoir beauty
all gone; that soon ug.iin, tho chill au
tumn blasts would sot tho trees to shiv
er and shako all thoir doad and dying
leaves to tho wot bosom of Mothor
But como with mo to an autumn
day in tho Pino Woods. Dato it as
abovo. Tho wild llowers aro Btill in
bloom. Violots, blue and white ; bright
golden imitations of tho yellow daisy;
and lillies with a moro royal purple
than ovor tinted tho rohos of l'orsian
monarch or Hebrew king. Tho loaves
upon the Poach trees aro as greon as
in Juno. Tho wiro grass just begin
ning to turn .brown, and tho young
oaks just putting on thoir coat of rich
est red. Our deeidious trees do not
ahow tho varioty of color and beauty to
lto soeii in a northern forest. But to a
young oak, a porfeot cono of leaves,
standing in tho still air, and otloring
its rod leaves to tho golden suushino,
shows a richness of color not to bo
oqualled in nature And wo may
drink our fill of theso beauties and
gazo upon this gorgeous array without
forobodings of coming storms of sleet
and snow. No sadness comes with tho
autumn tints of abouthornpino woods.
Wo know that our winter timo will
como; but wo also know that tho life
of tho past summer will not bo buried
in tho death of snow, ico and hail.
Nature does not die horo; loaving us
only faith and hopo, born of oxporionco
in tho spring's resurrection and now
ucsh of life; hIio only rests in tho full
nosa of her beauty. Wo know that
tho oaks will retain their leaves until
tho spring buds crowd them oir. Wo
know that very much plant life is
growing steadily on, for llowora of
spring. Wo know that tho solemn
and fasoiuating pines will continue
green and unchanged 5 and yet chang
ing as they drop their long neodlos,
ono by ouo, weaving u brown mantle
for tho unrullled bosom of Earth. Wo
know that our winter is coming; but
wo shall not bo housed, with racking
coughs and stilling coal gat, for tho
next four months; but without over
ooM and mittens wo may go out to
breathe the puro air of Heaven every
day and every night.

OUR LETTER TROJI Y7A3niNQTON,
Mattora oflntorost Reported toy our Reg
Washington, Noy, 1M, ISO).
Eniroit OitKdio.v Scout:
Secretary Window's soheino for in
creasing tho amount of money in cir
culation has leaked out, as such tilings
usually do, although his annual report
will not bo madu public until the day
after tho Presidents messago is sub
mitted to congress, and it may not af
ter all bo in his report, us I am in
formed that Mr. Harrison has declined
too endorse it in his mcesago, but tho
Secretary will probably insist upon in
cluding it in his report. MrWindom's'
idea is to havo the govormont issuo l,
or 2 per cent, bonds to bo convertnblo
into cash upon tho demand of the
holder. Ho believes that such a
schotno would go a long way towards
preventing dangerous stringencies in
tho money market, such as tho ono
from which tho country is just recov
ering. Nearly all tho eabinot oudorso
tho idea, and tho only reason that Mr,
Harrison objects to incorporating it in
his message is said to bo that thoro is
not time to consider such a radical
change in our financial methods at tho
Thu schemo is not original with Mr.
Windom. It was originated away
back in tho 70's by onu of tho bright'
est young members of the then Green
back party Mr. John Urisbou Walker
who was at that time uditing a daily
paper in Washington, and who is now
editing tho Cosmopolitan magazine It
was becauso Senator Sherman, then
Secretary of tho Treasury, roftihod to
adopt this or u similar lohoino and
permuted in his polioy of commuting
tho currency in order to bring about
tho resumption of specific payments
that Mr. Walker demanded through
the columns of his paper the impeach
ment ol Secretary Sherman adomand
which at that time attracted national
Loading republicans such as speaker
Heed and Itepreaentattvo McKinley,
fay that then, will he no financial legis
lation, at thin session of congress; hut
there i a strong r-lurin-nt in the repub
lican party that will demand in loud
tones that a free coiling bill bo pufficd
or that something bo done to largely
incroai-e tho volume of currency in
circulation. It is nn important and
interesting question, and it is certain
to be heard fiom thin winter, both in
and nut of congics?.
The f-penkcrnhip light is quiet on
tho surface, hut raging fiercely in tho
under current of pi.iit.en. Mr. Mills
announcennTit that he would retire
from tho House at the closo of the
Fifty-second congrCEB was a very
shrewd move, and it h;:s undoubted
ly improved his chances, and it looks
now :is if he might bo the man, if a
Southern irnn bo chosen. But of
course, he has tn con'end against the
various combinations curtain to bo
made against any man who obtains a
temporary lead, and the fact that ho
openly declares himself a free trader
will undoubtedly lose him some votes.
There is a conservative wing of tho
democratic parly, at tho head of which
is Kepresontativo Flower, who has a
"barrel" and Piesidenlial aspiration?
which is decidedly opposed to any
unheal treatment of the tariff question.
This element is working to have Mr.
Flower placed at tho head of the Ways
and Means committco of tho noxt
House and it is claimed that they
will rofuso to support any candidate
for Speaker who docs not pledge him
self to put him there.
The republican programme has been
announced, for tho session. It cm
braces the passage of an apportion
ment bill, a shipping bill, tho regular
appropriation bills and the Federal
election hill. To carrv out this pro
gramme two things will bo absolutely
necessary a change in the rules of
tho Senato and tho presence of a con
stant quorum of republicans in tho
House as the democrats have an
nounced their intention to oppose every
onn of theso measures except tho re
gular appropriation bills. There is
said to bo in existenco a written agree
ment signed by 13 republican senators
to change tho rules and pass tho elec
tion bill before tiio Christmas holidays.
Thero is ono notablo thing imming
ling wi,th tho returning congressmen
of poth parties they all speak in most
respectful terms of tho claims of the
Farmers Alliance, and that is a good
deal more than they did when here
last. Votes always command tho re
spect of politicians.
Everybody predicts and expects that
tho short session of congress which
eonvenos noxt Monday will be, from
ono and another cause, one of tho
most exciting in our history, as well
us ono of the most important in its
ed'eet upon tho political future of tho
threo great political parties, for it'U
now conceded by all shrewd observers
that tho Farmers' Aliauce is ono of
tho great political partios of the coun
try, and that it will take a prominont
part in tho great national battlo of
