Youn^ fellow. I -want to hold speech with you? i
But never tv word of the things you do.
And never a. word of the waye you walK.
Nor the Kotara you Keep, nor the way you talK.
For I Know that a man ls called undergrown
If his wild, wild oats are as yat unsown.
But I wondered If somewhere?away from here?
Somebody, a woman?perhaps lt's queer,
I wonder if she doesn't bend and sigh
O'er a picture of you tn the days gone by.
O, certainly not I I've no mind to preach
And no creed to give and no rules to teach.
I was thinKlng. that's all, as I -watched your face.
And I thought that somehow I could faintly trace
The path where the dimples played hide and seer.
When you -were a toddler- -there. In your cheeK.
And I wondered, that's all. as a man will do.
Who cherished the picture she Kad of you.
You'll pardon me. surely? It's not for me
To hinder your pleasures. A man ts free
To come and go as he liKes, and. yes.
To act as He pleases. That's right. I guess.
It's simply a fancy, because you are
A stranger to me, and I wouldn't mar
A moment of yours. But, whose fingers hold
The picture they tooK -when your curls were goldT
When you were a toddler I Your picture, then.
Before you set foot on the path of men.
I simply was wondering who would?well.
Who treasures your picture, and loves to tell
The tales of your wonderful boyhood years 7
And maybe she Kisses lt, while her tears
Come clouding the sunlight that's tn her smiles
At thinKlng of all the baby wiles I
And the measuring marh that she made on the wall
But then it ts not my concern, at ail.

The Intruder.
A certain boat coming up tbe Mle
?laslppl one day during tbe flood lost
ber way and bumped up against a
frame bouse. She hadn't more tban
touched lt before an old darkey
rammed his bead up tbrougb a hole
In tbe roof, where tbe chimney once
came out. and yelled at tbe captain
on tbe roof: "Whar's yer gwlne wid
dat boat? Can't you see nothln'?
Fust thine; yer knows yer gwlne to
turn dis house ober, spill de old wom?
an an' de cbll'en out In de flood an'
drown 'em. What yer doln' out here
In de country wid yer boat, anyhow?
Oo on back yander froo de co'n fields
an' get back Into de ribber wbar ye
b'longs. Ain't got no business sev'n
miles out in the country foolin' roun'
people's houses nohow?" And she |
backed out.?Life.
Hints to Lovelorn Gents.
If she makes a practice of eating
onions for supper every time you call,
lt ls a sign tbat she ls Indifferent to?
ward your suit.
If you spend a lot of money sending
flowers to her every day lt may make
a blt with her. but she will marry
somebody who has more sense.
Don-1 talk to her about love In a cot?
tage. Talk about a brownstone bunga?
low and spring the cottage on her after
you get her.
If she ls handsome, tell her about it.
and If she isn't, tell her anyway.
Have an automobile catalogue in
your coat pocket where she can catch

THOUGHT IT WAS IMITATION
Barney Weller Was Fond of Jokes,
But Rooster Under His Bed
Wa* Too Much.
Barney Weller waa about the fun?
niest fellow you ever saw. He waa
always making people laugh by play?
ing Jokes on somebody, and he put up
a game on a victim every day in the
week. He was In Chicago at a big
hotel on one occasion when the butt
of one of his Jokes sought revenge
by securing a live rooster and tying
lt under Hamey's bed at night.
At three o'clock in the morning the
rooster turned up for his first vocal
selection and let out a long, shrill
crow. The second performance ot
this kind wns teo much for the humor?
ist. He dressed himself hastily and
rushed down to tbe night clerk.
"Give me my bill!" he said fierce?
ly. "I'm gotng to get out of thin
place!"
"But please tell me what the
trouble ls," suggested the night
clerk.
"That don't matter," said Wellei
angrily. "I'm going to cet out ol
here and get out quick!"
"At least," begged the clerk, "Iel
us know what ls the matter with th*
hotel before__y^ru go."
"Well," exploded Weller, "there's t
crazy fool next door to me who tblnki
this place is a henhouse. He's speni
the last two hours trying to Imitate t
rooster."?Popular Magazine.

"I learned something new the othe
day," said the father of a boy who I
prone to playing hookey from school
"The letter carrier makes his firs
delivery about the time we are all a
breakfast. I noticed that wben th
bell rang my boy would sometime
hurry down before any one else coull
get ahead of him, although he wa
naturally so lazy that usually yoi
couldn't get him to go at all.
"This set me thinking. I soon foum
out that he ran downstairs to the let
ter box only when the previous da
had been a fine one. I followed hlr
and caught him In the act of destrcj
Ing a postal card his teacher had sen
to me, stating that the boy had bee
absent from school.
"It was a neat little trick, but
managed to checkmate him all rlgh
by having the teacher send the card t
any place of business downtown."
Value af a Laugh.
When you go to visit the sick d
not forget that a good laugh ls one c
the best tonics and a blt of humoroti
gossip or piquant saying ls bette
than any drugs. Make tha Invall
smile If you cannot start up a laug)
but maka your visit short; remembe
that too mach of a good thing ia a
bad as too little.
