AT THE SIGN OF THE SKULL
A strange old tavern have I seen.
Tlie walls are thick, the garden green.
"Tig damp and foul, yet through the door
Do rich men come as well as poor.
They oome by night, and they come by day,
Aud never a guest Is turned away.
Tt.o landlord, an unwholesome fellow.
Has a oomplexton white and yellow.
And though he looks exceedingly thin
Does nothing else but grin and grin
At all htB guests, who, after awhile.
Begin to imitate his smile.
The guests are a fearful sight to see,
Though some are people of high degree.
For uo one asks when a carriage arrives
A decent account of the inmates' lives,
But holy virgins and men of sin
Sleep cheek by jowl in this careless Inn.
And beautiful youths la their strength and
Have taken beds by a leper's side,
But all sleep well, and it never was said
That any kind ot complaint was made.
For all the people who pass that way
Appear to iutenri a lengthened stay.
The house has a singular bill of fare
Nothing dainty, nothing rare,
But only one dish, and that dish meat,
Which never a guest was known to eat.
Night and day the moai goes ou,
And the guests themselves are fed upon!
These merry guests are all of them bound
To a land far off, but I never found
That auy one knew when he should start,
Or wiBlied from this pleasant house to part.
0 strange old tavern, with garden green!
In every town its walls are seen.
Now the question hasoften been asked of me.
u it really as bad as it seems to be?

The Coniolence Fund.
Every little while conscience stricken
individuals refund to the treasury de
partment certain sums of money con
fessed to have been ill gotten from the
government m various ways. It is
tonishing that notwithstanding the thou
sands of dollars that have been sent to
the treasury on this account no special
record has been taken of them ; that there
is never proof to those who have thus
"squared themselves" that the money
ever reacnea tne proper disposition.
Treasury officials now recognize this
dereliction, and separate accounts will to
kept in future, if for no other purpose
than to enable public officials to vindi
cate themselves from anonymous assail
ants who may impugn their trustworthi

THE WAYS OF PROVIDENCE.
While tho travel 'long the pathway!

While his ears he closes tight
To the beggar's piteous pleadin.

So mighty an exceedin, J"'t
Till it Booms as if his power
Had no endin or beginnin,
An If this world we're placed in
Was the final en of livin,
An after death to mortals
No f utur' state was given.
We'd bo right in thinkin Providence
Had miseed its calculations.
But w'on we recollec' that some day
There'll be a changin places
Wo jes keep right on pullin steady
In contentment's easy traces,
Feelin sure that at the endin
She'll even up tho rations.
THE DISPERSION OF MANKIND,
Stately on tihinar's ancient plain
Uprose a mighty thought in stone.
The thinkers scoffed in pure diBdaln '
Of forces mightier than their own.
Full many a moon bad waxed and waned,
Full many a brain and hand had striven
To pile a totvar, which, uareutrained
By bound or bar, should smite the hearta.
Then came tho Injured Godhead down
And cursed them with an alien Bpeech,
And from tlie thuuder of his frown
Afar they wandered, each from each.
