"For look how high the heaven
is in comparison of the earth; so
great is his mercy also toward
them that fear him. Look how
wide also the east is from the west ;
so far hath he set our sins from
Yea, like as a father pitieth his
own children; even so is the Lord
merciful unto them that fear him.
For he knoweth whereof we are
made : he remembereth that we are
The days of man are but as
grass; for he flourisheth as a flower
of the field. For as soon as the
wind goeth over it, it is gone : and
the place thereof shall know it no
more. But the merciful goodness

ever upon them that fear him : and

THAT LITTLE CHAP OF
(Mrs. Ida Goldsmith Morris, of
Glasgow, Ky., some time ago
wrote a poem entitled, "That Little
Chap of Mine." i It was copied
everywhere, the Southern Clipping

papers that had used it. Then it

HONOLULU, NOVEMBEK, 1902.
I can't lay claim to anything as
fur as looks may go,
An' when it come to 1'aniing, wliyj
I don't stand any show;
But thar must be somethin' more
in me than other folks kin see,
'Cause I've got a little chap at
home that thinks a heap of me.
"I've had my ups and clowns in
life, as all folks have, I guess.
An', take it all in all, I couldn't
brag on much success;
But it braces up a feller an' it tickles
him to know
Thar's someone that takes stock in
him, no matter how things go ;
An' when I get the worst of it, I'm
proud as I kin be
To know that little chap of mine
still thinks a heap of me.
"To feel his little hand in mine so
clingin' and so warm.
To know he thinks I'm strong
enough to keep him safe from
To see his lovin' faith in all that I
kin say or do
It sort o' shames a feller, but it
makes him better, too;
That's why I try to be the man he
fancies me to be.
Jest 'cause that little chap of mine
he thinks a heap of me.
"I wouldn't disappoint his trust
for anything on earth,
Or let him see how little I jest;
naturally am worth
An' after all it's easy, "up the better
road to climb,
With a little hand to help you on
an' guide you all the time;
An' I reckon I'm a better man than
what I used to be,
Since I've got a little chap at home
that1 thinks a heap of me."
.MYSTERIES OF LIFE AT LOS
From the latest local directory the
Los Angeles Times has made a
compilation of the number of persons
engaged in various occupations
in that city. As the results
are of more than local interest, the
list is given here:
Cigar and tobacco 135
Building contractors 182
Fuel and feed in
Insurance agents 158
Meat markets . 120
Mining companies 102
Nurses .",. 107
Oil companies . '144
Physicians . . -v . . . 494
Real Estate agents , 446
Rooms to rent 535
Music teachers 235
From this it appears that the
leading occupation in Los Angeles
is keeping "rooms to let," there
being no less than 525 persons so
engaged. But the doctors make a
strong showing', coming next! in
order, only a little less than 500.
The Times estimates the proportion
at one doctor to every fifty
There is also a dauntless little
army of 446 real estate agents
though how they all live is a wonder.
Yet the problem of existence
for them is probably no greater
than for most of the 438 attorneys
not to mention the 235 music,
teachers and others.
It has always been a good deal
of a puzzle to visitors what the
people of Los Angeles live upon,
aside from climate, and this 'list
from the Times does not help to
solve the mystery. No doubt the
