Easter, with its hard.boilod eggi

Merely a wisp of hay
lo stop up the crack in a window,
To keep the wind away;
Certainly not worth counting,
A paltry little sum,
That isu't enough to distinguish
A well-to-do from a bum.
A measly, miserable wad
That wouldn't pay for the water
In a good Kentucky tod;
Simply a sign of the spirit
To moisten the thirsty tongue;
& erely a fleeting nothing
More than a smell at the bung.
Homes for a thousand or more,
Or clothes for two hundred thonsand
Or food for a million poor.
Gee! what a little stack,
When you come to learn
Of the limitless yearn
Of a Harrimaniac!
-[W. J. Lampton.
Be a Booster,
Do you know there's lots of people
Settin' 'round in every town,
Growlin' like a broody chicken,
KI:ockin' every good thing down;
Don't you be that kind of cattle,
'Cause they nin't no use on earth
You just be a booster rooster,
Crow atnd b ost for all you're
If ypour tow)~n needs hoostin', boost her,
Don't hold back to waMit and see
[f some ot her feler's willin';,
Sail right ini, tIe co)untry's free.
No ono' got a i'i' taage on it,
Itsyours just 's much as his;
[f your towu is shy of boosters,
You get in the boostin' biz.
If things udon ' seem jutvd to kuit you,
And the- wvold seems kinder wrong,
Whlat's the matter with a boost,in'
,Just toe help the1( thinug along?
'Cause if you should st'p a goin'
We'd be in a sorry plighth
You just keep that horn a-blowin',
Boost 'er with aill yourt might.

-Closing Exercises of Colored School.
The closing exercises of the Pick
ens colored graded school was held
Friday night. John I. Miller, the
principal, has labored faithfully for
live months to inculcate the right
kind of knowledge and education into
his charges; how well he has suc
-ceeded was demonstrated Friday
night. John deserves much credit
for his patience and painstaking
.teachin;. The exercises were rather
lengthy but not wearisome. There
were 26 regular numbers on the pro
gramme, one special number, and
two encores. The programme con
sisted of songs, dialogues, recitationa,
speeches and drills. All of the se
lections were well rendered; the vari-'
ous parts were well carried out; the
pieces well chosen and much study
given to the proper delivery of them.
Vh Polo, the fan drill, the scarf drill
