I ' UP WITH THE FLAG w
"BY BERTON BRALEY.
Up with the flag! Up with the flag!
Up with the flag we love!
Till its colors flutter from every roof
And merge with the skies above,
And our eyes shall fill and our hearts
shall thrill
With the joy that is always new,
At the grand old sight of the red and
N white,
And the stars in a field of blue.
Let our flag unfurled to a watching
world
Be proof that we keep our trust,
Thatve take our part with a valiant
heart
In a cause that we know is just! .

1 NUTTY NATURE NOTES.
A perch never seeks shelter when
it rains;
In warm weather the rhinocerous
gets lazy and when he feels, pleased
lie lets the -wind wanis tail.
Let it float on high, and if men must
die
To keep it from blot or stain,
They shall meet their fate with souls
elate
They shall not die in vain.
For the-flag still holds in its ample
folds
The spell of its olden flame,
And our pulses leap and we bum
down deep
With a wonderful, quenchless
flame:
As the flag flings free for all to see
In the sweep of the winds above.
Up with the flag! Up with the flag!
Up with the flag we love!

fishing for 'em you can mislead 'em
by making believe you are teaching
the worm to swim.
