spurred their feet, and lent Imagination
to their dance. Strange cries they some
times gave, but musical the gondoliers
of Venice give tho ram when piloting
quiet gondolas along. I almost heard
the sptashlns of the oars In their strnngo
crier, and saw the loggias sparkling in

would disappear. T think she spnt Ions

So In her .-toad would come a different

prettv face amidst a cloud of wraps.
"I hate the sea'" a petulant voice uoul-1
exclaim. "I never will get up till after

ILLUSIONS OF THE SCA.
The pure ozone of the Atlantic breeze
most truly breeds flirtation In its train.
An ocean voyage brings uch strange
hallucinations, too! Up In tin first-class
set the Married Man, so Jolly in the gay
deck-sports, so gallant In his manner
toward the girls, has now become an
object of commiseration and of pity. Hfi

on board. "I feel o sorry for that man!
At last night's dance he leally hinted that
he cared for me and there he's tied up to
a. wife he tannot love! Poor fellow! It
Is so sad and strange!"
It did seem strange. For Just a day or
two before I saw him almost weeping
as ho fondly kissed his pretty wife fare
well upon Southampton dock. "Good
heavens! I hate to think of this beastly
voyage without you, Mary!" I had heard
him say, with frankly red-rimmed eyes.
"Drop njo a postcard every day to let
me know how all the kiddles are. This
four week's trip is Just a bit too long."
Tes, it was strange! Perhaps the sea
had given the Prettiest Girl hallucina
tions! The voyage drew at length to Its last
day. That final morning I rose early
and watched till New Tork Harbor and
the great Statue of Libert appeared. I
was deeply impressed by the lovely
statue with the beautiful strong face and
high Imperious arm. She seemed to
beckon lonely emigrants onward, onward
to peace and prosperity.

after much thought, and he set to

To be sure he put green grass and
some yellow daisies at the side of the
automobile; he made the road brown
and the sky blue, but for all that the
picture was red very red.
Then he found a picture of a big

carriage window shone the hottest sun
I've ever known. Such heat was new to
me, an English girl. I did not like that
blazing, burning sun. I wanted a cool
shade, nnd one quiet sleep. But Philadel

When commerce between this country

business depended almost entirely upon
Importations. Toys of a certain kind

The American toy man Is resourceful.
He decided that, as far as possible, what
can't bo had from Germany shnll bo
made In the United States. Consequently,
many of the factories are now producing
(roods that have hitherto been sold only
by German tirms.
l'cthaps the domestic product won't

average American child will be as happy

dolls, guns olid games.

every week bearing ft few toys of Euro

shipped from the German factories to
Holland or Sweden nnd from the ports
of either of those countries tho toys will

So there is no teason to worry about
playthings while the troubles of school
are just beginning. Santa Claus' chief

When the glow of early thought declines In feeling's dull decay;
'Tls not on youth's smooth cheek tho blush alone which fades so fosl,
flut tho lender bloom of heatt Is Bono, cro youth Itself be past.
Then tho few whose spirits float nbove the wreck of happiness
Are driven o'er the shoals of guilt or ocean of excess:
The magnet of their course is gone, or only points In vain
The shore to which their shivered sail shall never stretch again.
Thou the mortal coldness of the soul like death Itself comes down;
It cannot feel for others woes, It dare not dream Its own;
That heavy chill has ftozen o'er the fountain of our tears.
And though the eye may sparkle still, 'tis wheie the lco appears. '
O, could I feel as I havo felt, or be what I have been.
Or weep as I could once have wept o'er many a vanished scene;
As springs In deserts found seem sweet, all brackish though they he,
So midst the withered waste of life, thoso tears would flow to me!
