Jf Ihüre vvere dreams to sell. Do I uot know ful! well What I would bay?- Hope's dear, delusive spell, lts happy tale to teil; Joy's fleeting sigh. I would be young again- Youth's raaddiug bliss and bane I would reeapture- Though it were keen with pain, All else seeined void and vain To that fine rapture. I wonld be free once moreSlip tbrougli an open door Into Life's glory- Keep what I spent of yore- Find what I lost before- llear the old story. As it of old befell, Breaking Death's frozen spell, Lovo should draw nigh- Do I not know too well, If there were dreams to sell, What I would buy? - Louise Chandler Moulton. It Stuck in His Crop. Ttcreis too littlo corn an too much husk an cob, An it sticks in my crop. Ar.d folks that work Uardes' git least fer their job, An it sticks in my crop. It takes a big tree to perduce a small cherry, zl it needs a large bush for a tarnal sinall berry, An a man must git wealthy afore he can merry- An it sticks in my crop. There is mighty small taters an mighty big wceds, An it sticks in my Crop. An too big perfessions an too little deeds, An it sticks in my crop. An there's too little readin in too many pages, An too little wisdom in too many sages, An the men who work bardes' tbey git the least wages- An it sticks in my crop. An the men who earn bread by the 6weat of their brow (It sticks in my crop) Git the wust kin er bread that there is, anyhow, An it sticks in my crop. But the men who dress up like a dude or a dandy, They cat nothin worser than puddin or candy, An they reach out an grab jest w'atever comes handy- An it 6ticks in my crop. An the poor man, like me, who digs in the dirt (It sticks in my erop), Neverwears a tailed coat, never wears a biled shirt, An it sticks in my erop. But them swell chaps who never do toilin nor spinnin, But divide up their time betwist sleepin and sinuin, Go aroun like men peacocks in purple an linen- An it sticks in my erop. Itstick3 in my erop, I can 't swaller itdown, It sticks in my erop. That the hard workin woman must wear a coarse gown, It sticks in my erop; While the gala who're too nice fer to let the ol cat in, An all study music an paintin an Latín, Never wear nothin poorer than sealskin an satin - An it sticks in my erop. An it sticks in my erop that me an my wife, Gosh, it sticks in my erop, Hev pressed sour juice from the wine press er life, An it sticks in my erop. Fate seems ter delight just to kick us an cufE ns, An the worl doesn't care how much either one suffers, If we jaw, it exclaims, "What ungrateful ol duffers," An it sticks in my erop. -S. W. Foss. Plant a Tree. He who plants a tree Plants a hope; Rootlets up through fibers blindly grope; Leaves unfold unto horizons free. So inan's life must climb From the elods of time Unto lieavens sublime. Canst thou prophesy, thou littlë tree, What the glory of thy boughs shall be? He who plants a tree, ] Ie plants love; Tents of coolness spreadingout above Wayf arers, he may not live to see. GiCts that grow are best; Hands that bless are biest; riant! Life does the rest. Heaven and earth help him who plants a tree. And his work its own reward shall be. - Lucy LarcoEQ. OrigiiiaHty. Once as I pondered o'er strango books, and sought Prom secrets of the past a knowiedge new, Within my mind entliraüed there sudden grew The perfect gerui of a stupendous thought! No bizarre brain as yet had ever wrought This ocld, welrd wouder inlo shape, and few Could from the stores of Fancy bring to view A wWui to equal this, to me untaught I lts radiant advent thrilled me with delight, But as I dreamed I heard a sad voice say: "I who am living in a spirit home, With the same thought that pleasures thee tonight, Charmed grim Tiberius through a festal day And made tuinultuous laugüter roar through Rome!" - F. S. Saltus. Little Thinga. I threw a pebble out into the lake; The pebble was small, The lake was wide, But the circling waves, by that pebble made, Pictured a lesson that will not fade AVhile men on this earth abide. I gave of my love to a sorrowing world; The word was feeble, The world was wido, Bnt the love wave met with the sinking bark Of one who was dying alone in the dark, And a píean rolled Ín with the tide. I reached to heaven for a sinning soul: My prayer was weak, But God was strong. And sins like scarlet were washed and white, For the soul that groveled sprang up to the light. And the weeping beeame a song. -E. H. Chase. Music's Magie. Stealing through the twilight. Comes a breath of song, Like a faint suggestion Of a perfume gone. It steals into the chambers Of my beating heart, And a thousand dreamy fancies Into being start. I hear again the voices Heard in vanished years, I see again the faces Absence but endears. What magie is in music, Turning time to flow Baekward to its fountain In the long ago? -Frederick A. Blsbee. Cunlinued Jrom Sthpagc.
