The lovely hour goes
Into the purple distance of the lake;
The gleaming rower rows;
Yet seo, the lovely hour
Let? drop Its Jewel power:
Tho sacred Instant, shook with sudden
Files; nnd from all Ilio mnglc morning
Tho dew drips silently.
So lot thlno own tears be
Hid In the rainbow of a smiling eon;
Por lo, not ono
Of these, the Ever-going, take
Or tho sweet Now farewell.
Say not fnrewell! h
The word thnt seizes on the last of biles
Holds treachery unseen.
E'en though It hide Its dagger with ?
It sets a gulf between,
Into the coming hour melt away
Obedient as the melting roso;
Or, like the unrcgretti'ng dny,
Who nevor will return,
Yet radiant goes,
Drop thou thy pleasure in Its golden urn,
And do not say farewell!

Golden rod and brllllantly-tlnted autumn
leaves have heralded tho approach of Sep?
tember, which to some Is the saddest
month of all the year. Llko the leaves
m the trees, one by one the summer guests
who have brlghtonedi the long hours at
the resorts by ? heir presence depart, and
this falling awoy, though gradual, Is
unmistakably felt, until October sun finds
only a few lingering to1 the mother tree
to tell the tale of one happily spent Bos?
ton. Friends part, many to meet no more,
or else under such changed conditions a?
to render ,the .meeting devoid of that
freedom which is-one of tho sweet char
acterlsilcs of life at tho springs. The
college boy and the college girl who'have
fend poetry under the green shade trees
and enjoyed rowing on tho moonlit .lake
must exchange nil of this for something
more serious. School books will have
to supply tho place of the gnyety of the
sweet summer time and nonsenso will bo
crowded out by hard study. Nevertheless,
the season has left Its Imprints on the
sands of time and fond memory will carry
through the long vista, of years recollec?
tions Which are too sweet to be effaced,
"You may break,, you may shatter, the
vnso, If you will,
But the scent of ihe roses will bang
around It still."
Hall meetings of the patriotic so?
cieties will begin next week, and, as much
work has accumulated during tho summor.
these meetings will be of unusual Interest.
The Hollywood Alemorlnl Association and
?the Confederate Memorial Literary So?
ciety, whose president, Airs. Joseph Bryan,
is now In Europe; tho Colonial Dames,
the Daughters of the American Revolu?
tion, tho Daughters of the Confederacy,
each will shortly meet and continue to
do so every month during the coming sea?
son. And so pleasant have these meetings
been that they assume a social as well
as business aspect, and the gatherings
are among the most pleasant features
of the winter time.

But Couldn't Eat.
A man who has seen many years sail?

thing or two about food, as the following
"I am a cook on tho Great Lakes and
have for five yoars suffered more than
pen or tongue could tell from stomach
trouble, and have taken medicines enough
to float the boat I sail In, and yet with?
out any.relief from pain.
."There were long stretches of time
w.Vin I could not e>,'en keep milk or
wine or tho lightest kind of food on my
stomach, and I had fall?n away from 115

saw so much In' the newspapers about
your food, Grape-Nuts, thnt one day I
decided to try It, although without tho
least hope of success,
"So 1 bought a package In Cleveland
nnd made the trial, and my stomnch was
so cranky that I .was afraid to try more
th&n ono teaspoonful with a little milk.
To my surprise, I kept It on my stomach
without any bad feelings and at th* end
of an hou,? 1 know It had digested and
gone to the right spot, so I tried two
teaspoonfuls more with the "same result.
And now for the past seven months I
have lived .almost entirely on Grape
Nuts, whore before I simply lived On
medicines which consisted principally of
opiates- thnt relieved mo fo,? a time, but
shattered my norves and weakened my
