LIGHT FOR ALL.
bY J. ouasTicK,
You cannot pay with mntte y
The million eons of toil
The ailor on the ocean,
The peasant on lite soil, ,
The laborer on the quury,
The hewer of the coal,
Your money pay the hand.
But it cannot pay the soul.
You gaze on the cathedral,
Whose turrets meet the sky;
Remember the fotindationi
That in earth and darkness life,
For. were not these foundations
So darkly resting .there,
Yon lowers could never sour up
So proudly in the air.
The workshop must be crowded
That the palace may be bright;
If the ploughman did not plough,
Then the poet rould not write.
Then lei every toil be hallowed
The man performs for man,
And have its shares of honor,
As p;rl of one great pUn.
See, light darts down from heaven,
And enters where it may:
The ej eg of all earth's people
Are cheered with one bright day,
And let the mind's true sunshine
He spread o'er earth as free,
And fill the souls of men,
As water fills the sea,
The man who (urns the soil
Need have no earthly mind,
T)e digger ' nid the coal
Nerd not be in spirit blind,
The mind can shed a light
On each worthy labor done,
As lowliest things are bright
In the radiance of the sun.
The tailor, aye, the cobbler,
May lift their hands like men
Better far that Alexander,
Could be wake to life again,
And think of all his bloodshed.
(And ail for nothing loot J
And ask himself 'What made I
So useful as a ilioef
What cheers the music student,
The poet, the divine?
The thought that for his followers
A brighter day will shine,
Li t every tinman laborer
Enjoy the vision bright
Lei the thought that comes from heavei
Ue epiBdd like heaven's own light!
Ye men who hold the pen,
Rise like a bund inspired,
And poets, let your lyrirs
With hope for man be fired;
Till the rid becomes a temple,
And every human heart
Sh II join in one great service,
Each happy in his part.

I79I, she came here wilh Col. Starko and
and his family. Al the earnest requeti of
Col, Starke, General Jackson piloted his
