the famous beauties of our own time

coloring is there, the object itself is
pleasing, but the soul, that which is
to the human body what the flame is
to the lamp, is absent Now the
flame is what men love and look for.
That is real beauty. That is what

GOLD AND SILVER IN SPIGOTTY
By Berton Braley.
(All the white men employed on
the canal are paid in "gold" mean
ing American money while the vast
army of negro and native labor is
paid in silver Panama money.)
It's Silver does the digging,
And Gold supplies the brains
To make the Scheme no idle dream,
But something that remains;
With drill and pick and shovel
The silver work is done,
But it is Gold, undaunted, bold,
That plans the way it's run.
The silver roll is Hindoo,
And negro, black as night;
A Spanish crew and Chinese, too
The Gold roll's-wholly white;
Yet, spite df Silver's army
And all the dirt they toss,
Amid the mob on every job
The Gold man is the boss!
It's Silver does thaJabor,
It's Gold that shows 'em how
To make the dream of yesterday
The fact of Here and Nw!
And, though the brawny toilers
Are on the silver roll,
They're but the Body of the Work;
The Gold men are the Soul!
An acre of good fishing ground will
produce more food in a week than an
acre, of land in a year.
