There sat a weary little bird
Hemmed round by cruel bars,
Alone her soul one could not find
Beneath the pitying stars.
but speeding to her side there came
One with so s wet t a song,
That for a moment slipped away
The burden of his wrong.
"Now wherefore dost thou seek me
Bird of the woodland free ?
I cannot turn a merry note
To bear thee con.pany.
"Hie, hie thec back to woodland
Fly o'er the sunlit plain,
Dip in thecool, and sparkling

I ne'er shall taste again.
"Here, would the shadow of my
Darken thy sunny day :
Fettered aud bound" I must remain,
But thoa ! away ! away !"
But to the sweet and pleading notes
The wee bird made reply ;
"To share thy sorrow is my joy,
Thy bars my liberty-"

A very daring robbery was com
mitted Wednesday night at Rev. G
R. "White's residence, in Sharon
township, about 5 miles from Char
lotte. TVia rmnr lti.liftft anC centlemen
of the neighborhood had beeu invi -
ted to a musical entertainment at
Mr. "White's house, and it was while
thy were enjoying the pleasant par
ty aud listening to the sweet straius
of music aud the charmiug voices of
the siugerB, that the robbers enter
ed, with stealthy tread, a room in
the very ceutre of the house, aud
carried off a large trunk, filled with
Mr. aud Mrs. White's clothing, jew
elry and other valuables. There
wie a great many persons at the
entertainment, and, ou account of
the gay laughter and 6ouud of the
music, the thievts entered the
house, secured their booty, and fled
without attracting attention.
The entertainment ended about
eleven o'clock, and it was not until
most of the guests had departed,
that Mrs. White missed the trunk.
She was looking for some of her
guests' gosjamers audi wraps, which
she had put in her room on the ar
rival of the guests, and when she
went in there, at the end of the en
tertainment, she could not tin! auy
of them. They were much puzzled,
at first, at the disappearance of the
things, 'but when she remembered
that she had put them on her trunk,
and, looking fir that, discovered
that it, too, was gone, she was utter
ly astounded. It very soon became
apparent to every one that the house
had been robbed, although it was
brilliantly lighted and full of peo
ple at the time.
As soon as the truth flashed across
Mr. White' mind, he gave the
alarm. And search was made in every
direction. firtiie stolen goods, as
welllas tile-perpetrators of the deed.
Mr.-.W. A. Griffith had just got
ten out of the house when the dis
covery was made,. and Mr. White
called! to- hinn and thev mad'jc a
After alhiost giving up in des
pair, the diligent searcher discover
ed the trunk, about 75 yards from
the house; but it had been literally
turned upside down, and everything
of any value stolen. All of the
wearing apparel, the table linen, .and
jewe'ly were gone.
Among other articles that were
stolen are a watch chain, a gold ring,
and g01d badge. The ring, has the

government for the printing of
bonds and current notes. The mills
where it is manufactured are at Glen

department receives the paper direct
from the hands of the manufacturer,
and every precaution is observed in
order to prevent any loss. Short
scraps of red silk are mixed with the

charger has been written out and
hangs near the mounted hide and is
signed by Sheridan. It says that
in disposition he was spirited,
though honest, aud would stand the
heaviest firing as steadily as the best
of Sh?ridan's well trained men. He
was as tough as a pine kuot, and
possessed of a large amount of
equine pride. Winchester was black
when in the war, but ag- turned
his coat to a dark, bay. He died in

If I were asked to define the-
meaning of a successful' man, 1
should say a man who has ntaide a
happy home for his wife aud' chil
dren. - No matter what he has not
done in the way of achieving wealth
or hbnors, if he has done that he- h
a grand success. If he has not done
that, and it is his own fan It, though
he be the highest in the land, he is
a most pitiable failure. Klin

All nations and tibes of
people have their peculiar
history. AYe know much of
the highly polished Greek and
the daring Roman.

brave Highlander among his

An- impenetrable vagueness
envelops his origin.
AYe have reason to believe
that, before the arrival of Col
umbus, these wild sons of
beautiful "Ne World" knew
of no such being as" the civi
lized white man. They knew
nothing of the "Sweet Songs
of David,." noiVof the ''Sermon
on the1 Mount."
Their music and their songs
were in the winds and the
Around the peaceful camp-

ignorance, which so often pre
cedes an impending doom.
How little-they dreamed of
resigning their" happy liunt-ing-groimdis

against the whites. How long

Endow them with the duties,
