Ah. long and narrow is Shadow street,
Where the sunlight can never fall;
Whose mile after mile can but repeat
The crumbline house and broken
The marsh btyond and the cypress
A misty veil and a sombre pall.
Over its linchened pavements, see
The people of Shadow street creep,
They seem so like unto you and me,
- As they stare or frown or weep; '
' But they're something more andsome
V thing less,
And their eyes are dim with sleep.
They think they are live and wide
They are busy with, dreams long
. ueuu; i
Their hurrying feet no progress make,
And their clock tells time that has
They are planning their triumphs of
are coining the words long
They toil and moil; they rhyme and
But none of, the other takes heed;
Their hopes are ravens on weary wing
That out of their hearts they feed.
Each man and woman in twilight blur
Claps tightly a mildewed weed.
This corner house on the Market square
Is the place where they hrst abide :
They climb one morn up its creeping
And by dusk steal out at the side.
They come; pushed out of the pulsing
And so into Shadow street glide.
From house after house, from day to
They move when the day has paled ;
Thin and grizzled and farther away,
And by many a pang assailed , . .
They pass at last neath they cypress
But they never know that they have

When God hides from us so

tered the Wilmington, Southport and
Western Railroad Company. The
company is composed of Charles N.

phia capitalists. The capital stock of
the company is $10,000 per mile for the
proposed route, and of this $1,000
Tper mile! has been subscribed and
$6,000 paid in cash. Major W. A.
Guthrie, who secured the charter, said
to-day the entire enterprise was backed
by ample capital and the road would
be built to a certainty. A surveyor is
already on the ground and work is ex
f pected to begin forthwith. The direc
torsof the company are James Warring

as the deep water terminus.
