lynching have had, and can have, no ei

the life, even of a criminal, without war

IX EVERY HEART THERE IS AN ARK
In every heart there is an ark
That" stems the floodtide ot despair.
A raven and a dove are there.
Acioss the waters dread and dark,
We first send out .
The raven doubt.
Which, to and fro
Will come and go,
And fan its black wing in the air.
But bring no olive leaf to cheer.
We then sentl out the dove of hope,
Which 1 ho' at first she find no cheer.
Will come back when, at hour of
The windows of the ark fly ope.
Then after seven days again,
She starts upon h"sr patient quest.
Her weary footsole she is fain
Cn yonder olive bough to rest;
15uf first back o'er the waters dark
Flies with the leaf to cheer the ark.
Aye, even more she there remains
Yet other seven days and nighls,
Till I-ove come tlown with rainbow
And hope is needed ne'er again.
1 1 Not so with raven doubt. He sallies
Down in some boggy fen, to gnaw
His c-aven wing, and croak and caw
Or freezes lo some bust of Pallas.

Medical Discovery, tor purifying phe blood.
For children who are puny, pale or weak,
the 'Discovery" is a tonic which builds
up both flesh and strength. What is said
of it tor children applies equally to adults.
As an appetizing, reslorative tonic, it sets
at woi k all the processes of digestion aDd
nutrition, rouses every organ into natural
action, and brings back health and
strength. In recovering from "grippe ''
or in c.invalesence from pneumonia, levers,
and other wasting diseases, it speedily in
vigorates and buil.ls up the whole sys
