WHEN THE HENS LAY.
Our family is extravagant,
And always want to buy
'ivery pesky thing they see,
Though the price be low or high;
Eut money's gettin' awful skerso,
'Tis skerser every (lay,
And Pa says we can't do much
Till the hens begin to lay.
.)fa wants a bran' new range.
And a kitchen cabinet, too;
Pa says we can't afford 'em,
And Ma is in a stew;
She frets and scolds about 'em
Most all the live long day,
And says she'll surely have 'em, too,
When the hens begin to lay.
Pa wants a new spring wagon
And a first-class set o' gears;
a; says he can't afford 'em
Unless he sells the steers;
Va can't afford to sell 'em,
But then he needs the pay,
Pa said he wouldn't see him
It Just gave him the blues
But Ma set aa-dignified,
When he asked our monthly bay
And told him he could have it
When the hens began to lay.

NATURE'S GREAT BANK.
'The Land In the Storehouse That

Jished on the morning of creation, and
from that day to this It has paid royal
4dividends, and has not for a single
day suspended or closed its doors.
The Creator of all things founded it
on a Rock of Ages, created a bureau
of deposits, called nature, which has
made daily deposits from the first day
till now. These deposits exceed in
yalue all the precious metals ever
mined, or the unmined riches of Colo
rado, California, Alaska and South
America, with diamond mines of
South Africa thrown in.
The soil of the world constitutes
this bank of the world. By the op.
erations of nature the products of the
soil are returned to It annually, thus
increasing the original deposit of soil
fertility. Nature wnrtr "

distributed over the wide surface of
the world and pennies or dimes or

No one ever gained a friend by tell

First of all, it is necessary that
you learn your friends' peculiarities

If ever you were a friend you will
be able to keep quiet as to the weak

ber that confidences given you when
you were close together are to be re
spected more than ever now.
Next never permit yourself to speak
or listen to any disagreeable words
about them. If you are in doubt as to
some speeches they have made, or
some action of theirs go to them and
ask them what they mean.
