That made our hopes beat high.
Sho mado no promise, travo no hint.
Yet wo were filled with glee.
More than we dreamed would come to paw:
When mother said, "We'll see."
So has It held through older years,
As It was proved before.
So may It hold of other worlds
Beyond this mundane shore.
Sho gives no promise, makes no hint.
Yet bliss will surely bo.
Moro than wo dream may come to pass,
For mother says, "We'll see."
Reached the Limit.
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley told In an ad
dress In Washington a story apropos
of food adulteration. "There was a
man," ho said, "who manufactured so
called silver spoons. A dealer bought
largely from him, but was always clam
oring for a lower price.
" 'But I can't lower the price,' tho
manufacturer would say. 'unless I put
in more lead.'
" 'All right moro lead, by nil means.'
Thus tho dealer would reply.
"Then one week tho dealer wired that
ho would take an enormous consign
ment of spoons if tho price wore cut a
further 10 per cent.
"'I can't cut tho price nnothcr pen
ny,' tho manufacturer wired back.
" 'Put in more lead,' wired tho dealer.
"'Impossible,' was the manufactur
er's reply. 'Last lot I shipped you were
nil load.' "
