I wonder If the aagiiished moon looked 


Through all that long last night 

And buried In her scnrrcd bren-^^i li -it! m l 

The memory of that sight: 
1 wonder of th' uneasy birds awoke 
As glowed that strange, great light 
Which paled the puri.le east where morn- 
ing broke. 
And sang. Inspired by God's own breath, 
"There is no death! There Is no death!" 

There Is no death, O hearts that throb In 

With longing, pulsing tide. 
Or In love's fullness, nigh akin to pain, 

Unfearlngly abide; 
There is no death. O soul whom niggard 

Has left unsatlsfled. 
The cycles swing and Joy those Hps await 
Who oft have sung on earth in pain, 
"1 rise again! I rise again!" 

No sacrince, O Self, can blot thee out. 

Or satisfy the debt 
Which binds thee to the usurer of doubt 

With Interest of regret! 
Still is not life to even the« denied: 

One way remaineth yet— 
Aa was thy Christ, must thou be crucified. 
But with those wounds In hands and feet. 
E'en Self finds resurrection sweet! 

Rejoice, O soul whose work Is Just begun, 

That all time lies before! 
Kejoice, O heart whose treasures all have 

That dimmer, farther shore! 
The stone that angels moved away that 

Was rolled from Heaven's door; 
▲wake and stand forth in hope's sudden 

And sing as sang the birds that morn : 
"There is no death, fur Life is born!"

Among the quaint and ancient cere- 
UiOliies with which the Italian people 
keep their Easter celebrations, none is 
older or more picturesque than the one 
known as the festival of the Beata Gio- 
vanua, which is held at Signa on Easter 
Monday. Signa Is a small village situ- 
ated auioug the vine clad hills that can 
be seen from Florence. Of IJiovanna. 
the heroine of the festival, very little 
appears to be known, except that she 
was born somewhere in the thirteenth 
century and used to tend her father's 
Bheep, which were pastured on the hill- 
aides of Signa. Very early in life she 
gained a reputation for sanctity, and in 
course of time her fame spread far and 
wide. She was cretlited with the pow- 
er of performing miracles and with 
having special control over -wild ani- 
mals and storms. In later life she re- 
tired to a cell built into a bouse in the 
village of Signa and remained there Im- 
mured until she died and was hurled iu 

the village church. 

Now, every Easter Monday, in com- 
memoration of her virtues, all the par- 
ishes for miles around send gifts of oil 
and other things to the church of her 
native place. Deputations headed by 
the local clergy jiour into Signa from 
early morning until late in the after- 
noon. The i;ifts they bring are borne 
by a donkey or a pony, on  . hose Ijtick. 
in addition. Is a small child, whr) ix s«ii- 
posed to be the prettiest the village can 
produce. His hair and neck are cover- 
ed witli neckhices and ntlier ariiclcs of 
jewelry, wilii wliicli the w iineii have 
decorated him, and he Is often clad In 
gold embroidered robes. 

As cin h procession Is sightetl the offi- 
cials of the i hurcli sally out to meet It, 
with banners flying and bands ) laying. 
and it is scileiuiily conductinl into Signa. 
The donkey, witJi its bniden, is lc I into

To undi'istand the custom it is neces- 
sary to glrince at an Incident in l-'rench 
history. When the coiisi.alile Henri Ue 
Montniori ncy. owner of the ehauieau 
at Mello. was so pursue l by the hatreii 
of Cardinal Richelieu that he was at 
last beheaded for the crime of high 
treason at Toulouse, his wile had a lit- 
tle chapel built iu the park of the 
chauleau and begged the ciirditial to 
permit her to place the remains of her 
husband iu it. 

Iticheliou and Louis XIII. denied her 
prayer, and she relired in sorriiw t" a 
convent, where she had a sumptuous 
chapel built, in which ire.v stand 
statues in marble of her anil her hus- 

But the little chapel of Cires-les-Mel- 
lo, tluiugh einply, bei aiiie the center of 
the plluriniage of lovers on accoimt of 
the alleciioii which had prompted it*? 
erection. It Is to this modest place of 
worship that youths and maiflens re- 
sort from mill's away on Easier Mon- 
day to learn their fate. 

Tlie mode of (liviuation is most curi- 
ous. The entrance to the chapel is pro- 
tected by a grill work through which it 
Is easy to pass your hand. The young 
man or woman who wishes to learu 
whether the chosen on ? will wed hlm 
or htr during the ensuing year takes 
a sou In hand and, putting the arm 
through the grill, tries to cast the sou 
on the altar. 

If the son falls ou the altar and stays 
there, it is thought certain that the 
saint will intercede for the lover and 
bring him, or her the happiness of mar- 
riage within the year. If, however, the 
coin should not fall on the altar or 
should roll off, adieu fpr a long time to. 
all hope of marriage. 

The sous of fortunate and unfortn- 
nate alike are gathered by the priest 
afterward and devoted to the purchase 
of masses for the unhappy.— Boston

TDservance of the Day Most ITotAble 
Evf-nt of Year in the Egy^ 
inn City. 


At the Greek church in Cairo, the ob- 
hurvance of Easter i.s the moat notable 
• veul of the year. A traveler who at- 
t'Jiided a service there thus describes it: 

"A goodly portion of the early serv- 
1' f was coil.!': I ' ' I'ui the farther

There « . i, i.., m sight but 
the magnificent screen, but we coul'l 
heiir voices that seemed to come from 
the recesses of a cavern alternately 
chanting and intoning in strange, un- 
funiiliai' accents. 

"During this part of the service the 
church was ilimly lighted, and the curi- 
ously sarbeU flgures moving through the 
gloom in the body of the church seemed 
singularly weird and uncanny. At a 
given moment the lights were turned 
up, and each person in the audieuce 
lighted his candie. The great dome re- 
flected the myrtiids of lights \intil our 
eyes were almost blinded by the sudden 

"At this point the golden door in the 
center of the iconnsinsis opened, and 
there came forth fr. in the holyof holier, 
into which IK) 1: . " in i.iuy enter, a 
pageant of scmlbavbaric .«i lendor. A 
Herald Krith staff in hand nnd wearing 
th* dress of the native Creek cleared the 
way. His .short, while kilt stood out 
like the gauze skirts of a ballet-dancer: 
he wore course, white stcckiugs, gar- • 
tered above the knee, and a rlchly-em- 
broiriHied zouave-Jacket. 

"IJoys carrying incense burners pre- 
ceded ihe patriarch, who was followed 
by acolytes, bishops, priests and other 
eccle.slastlcal dignitaries all in full

patriarch were gorgeous with gold em- 
broidery and prpciouK stones. Some of

In their hands. Of the two who wore 
near the end of the proce.ssion, one car- 
ri 'd an icon — sacred picture — the frame 
rl ' hly set in .iewels. which he turned to 
th** audience for veneration, while the 
other held in his hand a large Bible set 
with precious stones. 

"Forth from the 'royal door' they 
came through the center of the church, 
and with slow and measured step made 
their way into the courtyard — a mag- 
nificent spectacle. The (tignitaries gath- 
ered about the reading desk, while the 
patriarch recited the liturgy under the

Author of • Little Stories of Married 

(Copyrif;ht, by Joseph £ Bowles.) 

Yes, uiy husband and I ;)ulica iifck 
and neck together to eara a living, 
aU but once, and then I got ahead. 1 
was always great on pluuuing. No, 
you coui.lii i do the way I did. Marian, 
uiy daiiKt,(er, she couldu t either. Kring- 
tn* up's illflerent. 

1 was brought up to work, but I 
B«ver knew what work was till 1 
moved out west with my husband. 
When he cut down logs, I helped haul 
'em; when he built the cabin, I pla9- 
t*r«d U; after he'd planted, I hoed; 
and from then on iliere wasn't a [jen- 
ny earned but I d helped to earn it. 

We had only one child— you know 
what Marian is. She was Just the 
•ame then— not big and large-boned 
iUu her father and me, but Just while 
and light and dancey— never strong. 
P»rhaps I d kept all the etrength for 
myself and hadn't any lelt to giv.' her. 
But even when she was allln' it was 
M Kiuble to take care of her- and 
1 planned for her. It was like living 
In the prandpst story that was ever 
written to ^lan for Marian; and pull- 
ing; ncrk  )nd neck we'd thriven mighty 
well, so's as soon as ' she got big 
enough we sent her to a school in the 
eaat. She was our only child, and we 
•ent her away from us; but it wasn't 
hard— nothing was hard, for we were 
planning for her; and we saved here 
and we gained there, afid she had the 
best, and by and by Joseph sold this 
piece pf land and that piece of land, 
and we tame with Ine money to New 
York and he began to speculate in the 
stock market. 

My, but the money flowed In! And 
for the first time my heart went dead 
tired. I sat in the hotel all day Ions;— 
you know what a hotel bedroom is. ' 
I sat there all day long while he was 
down speculating, and tatted— crazy 
work, tatting! I sat and tatted to keep 
from thinking, for I knew—! He was 
always giving me money for clothes. 
•Why don't you go out aild buy you 
a camel's hair shawl?" says he, "and 

black silk dress and a purple velve! 
bonnet." Land. I Just put him off 
saying I'd do it. Nearly every day he 
gave me a roll of money and told me I 
lo buy clothes; but I thought nothing 1 
—for I knew. I never went out of the 
room till he came home, and then j 
we'd Uke a walk toeether -he all 

, and me In niy ol'I with 
I Uo-drt dead tired in me. From the

■IV y, too— but he wouldn't hear to

' thing to know when to sav?

No, my dear, you couldn't have put

I said: "Oh. If he Is, I'm glad of it!"

^iwn the corridor, halting — halting. 
Whrn he came In his face was white 

"Miiandy." he said, and stopped and 
stared at me; then he groaned. "On, 
poor mother, poor mother! You're 
smiling so I can't bear to tell you. 
We're ruined. I've lost every cent we 
had in the world!" 

"Is that aH?" said I. "Well, lefa

"We had an accident down the 
roast," he began; "Matka upset my

tioiir and some seal oil that I brought 
ilong for dog feed. Wo ve traveled

•Yes." echoed Buckhurst, "we've 
lauled this grub clear from St. 
Michaels, and we want what there is

frank, ingenuous smile, while his voice

A liig black six-shooier had leaped 

0 the stranger's hand and lay care- 
easly therein 

With a sharp gasp of incredulity 
Thomas instinctively shoved his hands 
roofwards till his heels left the floor 
Buckhurst pipe in hand, with gap- 
ing jaws, rose stiffly, hack to the wall.

"Now get into your clothes." com-

Buckhurst and Thomas lashed their 
' bleeding ilogs up the steep bank, paiis- 
' mg Leiore the door of a log cabin, 
j Howling curs swarmed from the vil- 
i iage roofs, while out from the low tun- 
nels crawled tattered, fur-clad Eskimo 
■hlldren and silent women. From the 
abin a wrinkled old man tottered, 
I speaking guttural words of welcome to 
i the newcomers. 

"Here'a a go. pal!" said Buckhurst, 
as be unlashed the bulging sled. 'It's 
all iiquaws and kids. 1 wonder where 
Ihe bucks are." 

"Uiinno, and what's more, I don't 
•are! " replied Thomas. "What I want 
is something; to eal, and mighty quick, 

In haltiDK words and eloquent ges- 
tures the old chief explained that the 
I men had gone hunting and would not 
! return for many days. 

"He says the grub is gone and 
they're all starving." 

"Serves 'em right!" grumbled the 
ither, as he strained at the heavy 
grub-box. "They it ought to work sum-^ 
mers and lay up a grub-staKu. 'Sposi-

hauied 300 miles Well. 

As Buckhurst prepun'.j iii  w.-irome 
meal within, willing hands bniught 
wooden bowls of water from the dis- 
tant hole, while old women, weak with 
hunger, mutely laid offerings of dried 
,;hlps, grasH and driftwood for thf fire. 

Weeks before hunger had stilled the 
childish laughter of the village, and 
teething babes sucked at rawhide 
thongs, while the elders gnawed on 
bits of bone and salmon fins which 
promised nourishment. 

Thomas, knife in hand, sliced thin 
strips of bacon for the pan, while Chief 
Joe eagerly gathered the moldy rinds 
and apportioned them among the 
mothers, who muttered tu the skin- 
clad infants In their arms 

St)on a fragrani steam of cooking 
food, of boiling coffee and frying meat. 
I filled the low room Children cried 
ioftly. while the squaws stirred un- 
easily and moistened their lips 

rnmindful of the hungry sounds. 
Buckhurst and Thomas voraciously fell 
to and noisily cleaned up dish after 

The low door swung back to admit 
i stooping figure, which straightened 
up sliowing the tall form and clean- 
■;haven features of a while man. 

"How are you. gentleme: .' I judged 
rom your sled outside iha there were 
- rangers slopi)ing here. 

"All right, Matka!" he called through 
the door. "Unhuok the dogs; we'll lie 
jver here till to morrow." 

"Yes, captain," came liaok from out- 

"I say agaiu, we must maintain law 
and order." 

The governor paused and gazed at 
the bearded population of Faro Mo-iu- 
lain, which had assembled at the 
Northern saloon. He continued: 

"These stran.pers have been robbed 
of that which is more precious in this 
dasolaie country than gold—their food 

"Loni; ago we formed regulations 
governing this camp, which read, im- 
mediately foUowing the section refer- 
ring to the return of stray dogs, as fol- 
lows: Any person or persons con- 
victed of stealing grub or provisions 
of any kind shall be publicly whipped 
at the post iu front of the A. C. com 
pany s store, and forced to leave cauip 
12 hours thereafter.' 

"Therefore, as it is your pleasure 
to carry out the letter of our law, as 
chairman of this meeting, I will ap- 
point Mr. Barton, Kid" Sullivan and

The commitlee Bled to the bar and 
backed against it, while the eager 
crowd pressed forward along the walls 
and grouped themselves behind the 

The door opened toldly and a man 
entered, followed by a native. Barton 
sprang toward him with a cry. and, 
grasping his hand, wrung it fiercely. 

"Why, Cap! Is It you, Cap? Where 
did you oome from? Come here and 
let die look at you, Charley! This Is 
a good sight!" aud dragging the smil- 
ing visitor by the arm, he brought 
him toward the light, where the rest 
of the committee stood bewildered. 

"Yes, I'm Charley, all right!" an- 
swered the other. 

He felt a heavy hand on his shoul- 
ler, while the pitted visage of Brocky 
I If ok was ihrust before his eyes. 

"Quess ye don't remember 'Brocky.' 
do ye? Ye ain't forgot that day at 
White Horse rapids, when ye dragged 
ine off them rocks half-diowned, have 
ye? Well, I aint! Put her there!" and 
turning to the indignant onlookers, he 
■laid: "Gents, they's a vacancy on 
this here committee from now on!" 

"Me, too," cried Barton. "I resign 
ray place!" 

"What's the trouble?" said Captain, 
scanning the angry faces surrounding 
blm; then, spying the hairy front and 
sneering eyes of Buckhurtt and 

"Ah! Ix)oking for more trouble are 

! M?" 

"That's him!" louuiy proclaimed 
Kuckhurst. "I want to know what 
this camp's goin' t6 do with this here 
itrong-arm man." 

Th6 governor mounted a chair and 

"Gentlemen, a nii.scarrlage of justice 
seems imminent. Two of our commit- 
tee have refused to act, and aa chair- 
man of the recent meeting. I will ap- 
point in their places Big Mike' and 
Mr Jones of Australia. 

To Matka's questioning eyes, the 
:Ircle of stubborn faces boded trouble, 
le loosed his knife in its sheath, and 

king his place beside Captain, 
•ched with wary glances for a hos- 

e sign. 

"Yes! I held you up," said Captain; 
hut I was starving, and you refrsed 
me grub — " 

"Don't ye believe him!" yelled Buck- 
aurst, while a murmur of dlsbeliaf 
ioun4ed from the crowd. "He just 
ivalked in on us and took it." 

"You lie!" Captain's voice cooed soft 
ind clear. 

At the words the crowd, dividing, 
icrambled hastily toward the walls out 
it range, leaving Captain and Buck- 
hurst facing each other. 

The governor tactfully cleared his 
hroat and began: 

"Sir, you have admitted that you 
■obbed these men at the poRit of a 
{un. You can't expect us to believe 
;hat these gentlemen refused food to a 
lungry 'musher.' " 

"Sure. Tha!t don't go." scoffed a 
jearded bystander. "I reckon you've 
ibout had your little say." ■ 

■ Well. I haven't had my little say," 
uiirmured Captain. "I want you to 
aear the truth of this matter." 

"The truth!" said the governor. "I 
lon't see why we'd ouxht to take your 
*ord any more tITan these other fel- 
ers. Who are ye. anyhow?" 

"He's Charley ("aptain," chorused 
barton and the "Kid." "You've all 
leard of Captain, squarest man on the 
tfukon. You Dawson men remember 
:he rescue of the Porcupine party, 
lon't ye?" 

A murmur of surprise greeted the re- 
narks and men looked curiously at the 
lero of many wintry tales, while in a 
•pspeL-tful silence be briefly told of his 
weetiug with the fwo at the village.

"Naw," answered Hall, 'not very; 
but I doan guess nobody kin he'p me

The stranger rode into the stream, 
almost touching Jenney as he 
iialled, and they began discussing 
ways and means. They had about 
decided to transfer Hall to the other 
side on the horse, and then attaching 
Jenney's bridle to the horse's girth, 
try pulling; when lo! there was a 
gentle whinny from Jenney as she 
moved up to the stranger's saddle-bags 
and began snitting. 

"By jingo!" cried Hall. 

"Nothin' better." drawled Ibe 
stranger, as be knowingly looked at 
Hall and moved on across the stream 

Jenney followed the scent of corn 
and oats, and by the judicious use of 
a few handfuls was coerced on her 
way as stolidly and jog-trottiugly as 

When they were fairly started Hall 
thanked the stranger, who said, 

"Not 't all." and they went on a

was not much of a talker, but soon 
the stranger spoke with true moun-

"An' what may be yer name, fr'en? 
an' how fur be ye goin' this road?" 

If this question was unpleasantly 
personal and pointed, the honest Hall 
did not feel it. but answered, readily: 

"1 keep the straight road after you 
reach the Pikeville fork, and go on 
about four mile. My name's Hall

Second Miles'.one 

Through the cycle of Ihi globe, 
We pass into a brighter day ; 
Better fifty years iu Europe, 
Than a cycle in Cathay." 

This issue niakrs the Second 
Miie .Stone the Reporter h a s 
passed since its debut iu the journ- 
alistic arena. As we look back over 
iis career it is gratifying' to us to 
kuow that it has not beeu u.sed to 
propiote the selfish end of any in- 
dividual or individuals, it has been 
the highest aim of the inauagenjent 
of Its colunuis to give to its readers 
first-- Kditorials that are in.-tructive 
as well as intersting. While w e 
ypeak of the race we do not fail 
to tell our people of their needs as 
well as of their accomplishments. 
In the selection of subjects we lias e 
tried to let them grosv out of the 
needs of our people. .Second — We 
have published .11 our news col- 
umu- the doing.s of our people a s 
reported to us by our correspond 
euts without friend or lavor. We 

have not only tried but have suc- 
ceeded up to this issue: in not l e- 
ing in not being identified in any 
news paper broils, which in fi u r 
mind is degrading.  ectarianisji, 
creeds and dogmas have not been 
known to our columns. We have 
not striven to serve a pait of our 
jieople, but all of theui. We hare 
not striven .so much to condemn 
vice, but it has beeu our highest 
aiui to leward virtue and leave vice 
out in the cold. If we have made 
any progress since we passe'i our 
first mile stone, we alone are not re 
sponsible; bnt we are willing to 
give the credit and praise to GikI 

men are learninor to scratch the fel- 
lows back that .scratches his. There 
was a time when they were unable 
to resent an insult and when thev 
they felt that so Long as thPircheek 
was not smitten nor their house 
hold offnnded that they were alright 
but after learning t h e eaidinal 
truths about union, they think 
differently and act differently. And 
now they say for as much as you 
do it unto the least of us you have 
done it unto us all. There are some 
in this town who do not sive them 
credit for having that much sense 
but it is true just the same. It 
matters not how worthy an enter 





and our patrons. We hope not to i prize a Negro is engaged in there 
be classed amoufj the news paper j are some of the other class who 
braggarts: but we ate willing to | cou.nder it beneath their dij/nitv to 
t ike an humble place in the journ- 1 patmnl/e hin» Then there are other 
alistic ranks, and do with our might | white merchants and husine.ssnien 
what our hands find to do. We've who patronij-e the Xeeio in busi 

tried not to make the breach be- 
tween the races any wider, bu^ if 
possible to bring them clo.ser to- 
gether. In doing this we have not 
advocated .social eqtiality but sim- 
ply contended for a fair deal in a way. We have not wavet/ 
the bloody shirt nor hois.ed the 
black flag at any time, unless we 
were forced to do it. We have as 
best we could complimented the 
good and coLdemned the wrong. 
In our next issue we will start for 
another mile.stone: and as we clear 
the port we want to leassure you, 
that it shall l)e with us as iu the 
future as it has been in the 
We will .serve you to the best of 
our ability, and above all we will 
do iind say the right a.* God gives 
us power and knowledo-e to see 
and know the the tight : then 
jng your loyalty to a good 
and believing in the justice of our 
cause: we say, all Hail.' 

The Negro *aintnofoor 

All of us are not fools if wt- do 
have fits. The Negines like other 

ness in proportion to the amount 
of trade the  receive from them. 
Every true Negro not only in this 
town but in all towns will see to 
it that h? spends his money with 
the class of niercha ts who prov e , 
they appreciate apd want his trade | 
Whatever you tlo do not have to 
fall out with a man to stop dealintr 
with him but when he asks you 
about it just tell hini you have de- 
cided to scratch the feilows back 
who scr's yours. We have given 
every ' merchant i u this town a 
chance to ask you for your patron- 
age and yet there are some who by 
their open refusal to advertise with 
us they dont want your trade. Vou 
read our columns refularly and 
there are some whose business you 
have never seen advertised. Why? they dont want your trade 
: nd when ever you go into theii 
places you are goins where you 
have not been asked. It is true 
we d': not spend much we 
do not havd much, but whenevei 
w e hate Huvthing to spend let us be 
suae to spend it with the merchnnts 
who appreciate our trade.

Ask me." Mr. Jhoniiie Farley 
the uight engineer of the state asylum 
took another lonK, iiiigeriug look _ 
the mirror and bestowed another lov 
lug pat on his m w necktie. 

His roommate, 'rimmy Lawrence,' 
walked around critically and look an- 
other look at Mr. J. Farley's necktie. 
"You got em skinned to death, John,' 
said Mr. Lawrence, with the air of oue 
having authority. 

"You're right." went on Mr. J. Farley. 
"You see. Tiuimy, I couldn't aflord to 
blow In a lot of dough on a new Kaster 
.suit like all the rest of these dudes 
around here have done. But, Timniy, 
I know a lot about dressing, an' 1 knuw 
that you can have a pretty bum suit, 
but If you've got a peachy necktie peo- 
I pie will Jest keep their e.ves on that an'

ple get a flash of this necktie of mine, 
say. they won't think of anything else. 
It'll kill 'em dead. Say, aln'l It a won- 

I Mr. Lawrence allowed that It was. and 
j Mr. Farley, after another look at the 
I necktie which so gorgeous that it 
would have made .Joseph's coat of many 
colors look like a dish rag, was about ro 
take a turn around the asybini grounds 
before when Luke Lavin, the 
electrician, entered. 

"Say, Jack." said Lulte, "I'm 
against it." 

"Why"' queried Mr. Lawrence, turn- 
ing so that the full bi oadsldeof his Won- 
derful necktie was flashed all at once 
upon the astonished gaze of the electri- 

"Out of sight," said Mr. Lavln. "Looks 
like a peacock's tail." 

"What's the trouble?" asked 
proud owner of the Easter necktie. 

"I'll tell you." went on the electrician. 
■You ought to be Interested, too. You've 
been making eyes at that little white 
faced Thomas girl that's been here a 
couple of weeks helping in the office. 
You know the women attendants here 
In the asylum always color a half 
dozen eggs or so apiece every Easter 
morning for our breakfast, and we fel- 
lers got up a prize this time to go to the 
one who colored the orettiest sen.
