"MINE AND THINL"
By Nora E. Hulings Siegel.
Mine- lisps my tiny autocrat toddler
As he holds his kitten toward me;
His blue eyes aglow with the pleas
Of possession there plain to see.
The little furry ball of life-hood,
Shrinks, trembling rejecting the
Each humble breath drawn craving
Of the flesh thew unwittingly defame.
Mine ! claims the ostenatious hus
As he Jealously guards his bride;
Each posture bespeaking possession
Mistakenly held at her side.
Her pure face and langor of move
Uroclaiming her goals sacrifice,
Which maidenhood pays at the alter,
Ah love! and ignorance is the price.
Mine! croaks that grim savant de
Whose coffers ne'er remunerate toil.
His tallions reaping wreck to mor
Ghoulishly retaining the spoil;
That stretch of clay subservlent;
The lone rows of mounds 'neath the
Whose ghostlike spires pointing
Describe mine! mine! mine! mine!
"Thine"! holily breaths the young
As she o'er her babe softly benls;
Worshipful prayer swelling upward;
Mother love librating ascends.
All Thine," yea, and thine Eden's
The grall I shall transcribed to thee;
Ignorance is flowered in wisdom
Whose travail paid the debt to
I am thine, Omnipresent ever.
Thou art mine to beand embrace,
Mine and thine, blind mortal that
The soul from the flesh they deface.
Mine to give. I love the possessor;
Thine to hold, to live and guide.
Mine and thine, we are one, The Al
The mortal and immortal beside.
DEATH CLAIMS A CHERISHED
On New Year's morning, just a few
moments after the bells had ceased
extolling the advent of the New Year
surrounded by the family. (all that
were in Butte), Mrs. Charles Foster
Clark passed peacefully into immor
tality. Contrary to the wishes of
those who so ardently prayed and
hoped against hope that the
patient would recover. A fav
orite in Butte's social circles,
a young wife and recently the
mother of her first born, she was one
whose graces of person and of char
acter were many and whose daily life
brought often into manifestation the
most admired traits of sterling wo
manhood. A large local public found
itself deeply interested in the tid
ings that came respecting Mrs.
Clark's condition, during the days
when she was known to be making
an intrepid fight for life. The mes
sages of cheer that sometimes came
serve to make all the more distress
ing the unwelcome announcement of
her death. It is an affiliction in
which the large company of those
who esteemed and admired Mrs.
Clark will share.

entire colored population, extends

PROF. WASHINGTON'S STAR.
Among the news dispatches of Sat
urday was one to the effect that
Booker T. Washington. the colored
scholar and leader of his race, had
delivered an address at one of the
California towns, and that the banks
and most of the business houses- had
closed for the occasion. Thirty or
twenty, or even ten years ago who
would have predicted that within two
generations of the close of the war
such an honor would be shown one
of Booker Washington's race as that
a community would take a "day off"
to hear him speak. This is an even
higher compliment to Booker Wash
ington than to have dined with
President Roosevelt. The latter
event was the whim of one man. The
California incident was the spon
taneous tribute of an entire commun
A woman should not think every
time she finds a stray hair on her

Two Irishmen got into a difficulty
and agreed to settle their trouble by
a fight, promising that when one
should say enough they should quit.
After one had knocked the other
down and pounded him severely the
weaker of the two began calling out:
"Enough! Enough!" The other paid
no attention, but kept hammering
away. A bystander called out: "Why
don't you let him nup? Dlont you
hear him say that lie has got en
ough?" "I do." replied the hbest man.
"ibut lhe is snll a liar I neve-cr know
when to believe him."
