The
snow is me nory gar-
. ment
God wraps around the
earth,
-That his- dream may remem
ber How fair it looked at birth.
That on its perfect beauty
He may look unafraid
The snow-drift glory hiding
The scars that man has
made.
Don't go out of life leav
ing behind you a noise that
sounds like the tearing of a
wet rag.
It's g6ing to be difficult to
induce the women's- clubs to
burn their bridge parties be

i-HflT WON THE -3M6: 1
THE. GREAT UNKNOWN
By Berton Braley.
The Average Man's got you or T,
Or so we claim,
We cannot, though we trvand
o try,'
Find out hjs name ;
And yet for half that goes awry
He gets the blame.
We roast him for his taste in art
And music, too,
His ethics in the busv mart
W,e sniff at "phew!"
In 'politics we say'-hfs part
Makes things "askew.
He keeps alive the rotten show,
The silly book-,
Yet, though we wander to and fro
' And look and look, v
riXn
The Average Man we do not
know 1
Nor find his nook.
He isn't you. or I or Smith
(To THAT we cling) T
He isn't any kin or kith
Of all our string.
In fact, the Average Man's a.
myth,
There's no such thing!
A lieutenant-governor who was
poisoned got three lines in the pa
pers, while a football player got
half a column. Most anybody can
be a lieutenant-governor.
It's a happy child that knows
its own father welf enough to pull
his wjoiskers.
