Out of the leaping furnace name
A tom of moltenelivef came;

Went forth to meet It s destiny.

Where a mother kept her dead child's heti.;

Around a faithless woman% arm.

Sounded like dirge.*

Whose spiriti from the deep are stirred:
Awaking with the morning light,
Again I listened to the; SOU
Rut with Its surges,
We heard uo dirges i
Rut only life's activity ;
Morning dispelled the gloom of night
At noon I sauntered forth to view .
The throbbing of that living sea;
Still It was surging, ,
•
. But only urging' •
All men to be both strouk and free*
Strong In the soul, with conscience true..
At Closing-4a) , onCe - more I -stood,
Gazing across that mighty sea ;

he calculated be could pass them on

to take a disinterested view of hie

But Dux never got over the turn
it gave him. He became kinder stu

One; evening, in au out-of-the-way
snburb, he knocked out the brains of
an Old man with a Sledge hammer
for the sake of a miserable watch of
no value:
'Caught iL the act by a young po

James was brought up at the Assizes
for the fifth time. The evidenee,was
overwhelming, the defense weak, the
jury indifferent. While the dozen
in the box Were trying whisky cock

By this time a crowd of new arri

The - orator of the crowd made

theifoliowing discourse; with much

Mr. Dux extended both his bands,
and received from tl ose of the ora

He weighed it in his right palm
for a few seconds, turned it over, and
then applied it to his-right ear.
