Now Bryan was having
A speech phonogaphed,
When who should walk in
But the giant Bill Taft
And they laughed.
"Good morning," said Bryan,
Displaying a look
Of joy and surprise
As he laid down his book
And they shook.
"I have come for a visit,"
Said Taft, while his-hat
Was hung on a nail
By the great Democrat
And they sat.
"Delighted?" said Bryan,
."If I be allowed
The sentiment Ted
Has so often avowed"
And he bowed.
"I suppose," ventured :Taft,
With a smile that was sweet,
"You have just made a record
That I've got to beat"
Very neat,
"Why no," Bryan laughed,
"I have records for two;
You may make one yourself
If you wish so to do
After you."
But Taft waved his hand
With a show of suspicion,
And said, "I an not
A machine politician"
Intermission.
In the old Roman calendar
September was the seventh
month of the year. This brought
Labor Day around in the heat
of the summer. All the unions
said it was too hot to march far
enough to make any impression
on capital. Like every other
politician, Nuia was afraid
of the labor vote, so he pushed
September along to the ninth
place in. the calendar and had
Labor Day fall on the first day
of Autumn. TheI unions were
thus enabled to' march twice as
far, and Numa had to refuse a
third term.
The old school bell will toll the
knell of youthful summer joys,
and the girls will meekly get In
line, together, with soins boys;
but the gamer youngsters will
hide out a few days in dissent,
and later on the last one in will
run for president.
The summne girl will get her
coat and Marry Widow hat, and
journey-homeward fromi the sea
uincertain where she's at; but
the widow cailly caressed be
cause she stuck to. togues, will
bring a mollycoddle home and
showJt to the folks.
- The tourists 'who have been
abroad on fashionable trips, will
homeward wend with hotel tags
stuck all around their grips;
and thronging in their wake
will come a neverending flow
of busted immigrants -to see
where they got all the dough.
September is when the au
tumal equi-nox the mosquito
out. This occurs on the 22a,
when the sun ~goes over the
equator for a touchdown on the
jice-cream gigglery anid summer
underwear. The 6041 man will
kick coal, and Mrs. Roosevelt,
leaving Sagamore Hilt, will turn
to Washington ttAd thei serious
business of loadiwe some more
shells for lions,
The cooler air will stImulate
The Presideni41're.

And then there will be dolnt
on this noe too ,stable eat
and every.Democrat will get,
campaign dollar's worth; the
Hisgens, Debs, and all of that
inconseguential fry, will duck
into the weeds and watch the
big event go by; and the Taft
men, looking on the while the
fireworks pop and sizz,. will hold
on tightly a'nd inquire, "Which
cloud of dust is his?"
rihe touch of Fall make the ripe
And falling acorn thud,
And the crawfish will throw up
his tail
And burrow in the mud;
The dread mosquito will depart
From this terrestial. scene,
But he'll die, as well becomes
- the brave,
With his face 'against the
screen.
And the fall-enlivened- colt
will frolic on the hill, and the
railroads will return the folks
they found too tough to kill; the
fat and idle plutocrat will close
his summer place, and thecan
didate will mount the stump
and run off at the face.
After the 23d, September will
be under the influence of Libra,
the seventh sign of the zodiac.
The sign of Libra represents a
pair of scales held in the claws
of a scorpion. It is of Chaldean
origin, and is supposed to mean
that about the 23d is where the
ice man gets stung himself.
People born under Libra are
incapable of pretense; the wo
men never kiss women they
hate, and the men play a
wretched game of poker. Libra
people also have no ear for mu-'
sic, and generally play some
particularly loud instrument in
the village band .
Thie swallow will desert the eave
And start the movement south

A Quall's Singular Stunt.
The prize nature faker story
comes from Alexandria, the
county-seat of Campbell county,
Kentucky. A quail's nest on
the farm of Edgar Thatcher was
invaded by a hen that laid one
egg there. ' The mother quail
drove the hen off when she re
appeared to lay some more eggs,
and set on the one hen egg and
her own. The hen egg hatched
firdt and the quail then aban
doned her own egg for the
adopted chicken, which -she
raised until it was large enough
to be taken to town for a
"springer." - [Cincinnati En
