the appropriation was provided just
half gone, the population has passed
1,460 and is still climbing. Mr. Pou
expects it to exceed/1,500 in another
month or so if it keep growing as it
has been for the last four months.
It increased 75 in November and for
the first 24 dayH of December it has
jumped half a hundred.
The annual appropriation of $527,-
000 was figured to operate the prison
and care for a population of 1,200
with the aid of "old' man economy,"
but the excess of over 200 prisoners
wilt necessitate some-more pinching,
Air. Pou said. Whether the pinch can
be carried far enough to stretch the
appropriation even further is the big

sends them to us.”

Washington, Dee. 29f—One hears
quite a bit about -the congressional
"smart set.” Also it’s referral to
sometimes as the “fast set.” One can
get into it, too, at a^irice.
It isn’t particularly exclusive, but
it's pretty expensive. That’s why
it’s mainly purely congressional.
Washington's permanent officialdom
isn’t well Enough paid to afford such i
/ ** *
A good many
very well afford it, either. To be
sure, they’re paid SIO,OOO a year now;
as compared with only $7,500 last
session. It’s quite a difference. Still,
the “smart set” appears to be living
up to it. Maybe rather more so.
A few rich men set the pace and it
makes the others hump to keep up

“So-and-so ought not to „keep the
company he does—it's too swift for
his bankroll.” One hears that- remark
. lots of times. They say there are
congressmen whose credit’s none too
good at the department stores. Ten
thousand a year isn’t enough tomain
taiie-an otherwise impecunious “smart
setter’s” smartness and pay ordinary
bills with likewise.

Os course a great many congress
men—doubtless a large majority—
lead very staid, quiet I* v ®» at the cap
ital. or put l in the suburbs. It's the
“smart set,” however, that’s most
noticeable. The r folks back heme
would open their eyes if they could
see some of their representatives en
joying themselves in Washington.
* * t,
The very fact that the “smart
set’s” away from home probably is
one of the main reasons why it’s so
“smart"—even smarty. A certain
type of persons -of impeccable deco
rum in the midkt at restrainingsur
roundings tend* to go on the rampage,
tacking such influences. Nearly ev
erybody's a little that way.

THESE IS NO DEATH.
This poem is often accredited to
Load Lytton but most authorities sty
it 'is the'work of J L. JtcGreery, au
thor of a volume entitled “Songs of
Tail and Triumph" published ia 1868.
There is no death! The staAi go down
To rise upon some other shore.
And bright in heaven’s jeweled crown
They shine forever more.
There is no death! The forest leaves
Gonvert to life the viewless aid; .
The rocks disorganize to feed
The hungry moss they bear.
There is no dfath! The dust we tread
Uhall change, beneath the summer
To golden grain, or mellow fruit,
Or rainbow-tinted flowers.
There is no death! The leaves may fall
The flowers riffly fade and pass
They only wait, through wintry hours.
The warm, sweet breath & May.
There ; s no death ! The choicest gifts
That heaven hath kindly lent to
Are ever first to seek again
The country of their birth;
And all things that for growth or jsy
Arc worthy of our love or care,
Whose loss has left us desolate,
Arc safely garnered there.
Though life become a desert waste,
We know its fairest, sweetest flow
Tran-planted into paradise,
Adorn immortal bowers. '
The voice of birdlrke melody
That we have missed and mourned
Now mingles with' the angel choir
In everlasting song.
There is no death! Althongh. we grieve
When beautiful, familiar forma
That we have learned to loVe are torn
From our embracing arms—
Although with bowed and breaking
With sable garb and silent- tread,
We bear their sinseleHS dust to rest.
And say that thev are "dead—”
They are not dead! They have but
Beyond the mists, that bind us here.
Into the new and larger life
Os that serener sphere.
They have but dropped tlieir robe at
To put their shining raiment on :
They have not wandered far away— „
They are not lost, nor gone.
Though disenthralled and glorified.
They still are here and love us yet;
The dear ones they have left behind
They never can forget. •
And sometimes, when our hearts
Amid temptat’ons fierce and deep,
Or when the wildly raging waves
Os grief or passion sweep, y. .•
Feel upon our fevered bfow* p
Their gentle touch, their breath of
Tlieir arms enfold us. and our hearts
Grow comforted aiijj calm.
And ever near us, thougli unseeu.
The dear, immortal spirits tread—
For all the boundless universe
Is life—there are no dead!
