OUR CUTLERY LINE
IS COMPLETE !!
is now here and the
the most complete line
Sell thefKind That
Where Is It that one mar buy
All the olden golden Kleams?
Where are the pedlar folk that cry
As they barter Stuff o' DrenmiT
Spinner, can you wind, a thread
Of the mornl nit's eray and red!
Will your wheel hum round and whirr
with thn mlity gossamer
That drifts on the laughing breeze
Sent us from the seven seaaT
Weaver, can your heavy loom
Weave a fabric of perfume.
Mingle warp and woof with all
Of the visions we recall.
Fresh and fair and filmy fine
In a magical design?
Merchant, have you stuffs to sell
Like the chiming of a bell,
Woven opalescent mist.
Tangled eold and amethyst.
Coloring that swirls and sways
Dawns and dusks of Yesterdays?
Empty-handed from the quest
North and south and east and west
Empty-handed we return.
Grieving that we may not learn
Where In all the world to buy
Stuft 0' Dreams. And now we sigh.
Ho, the Stuff o Dreams we had
Made the whole world sweet and glad,
Shuttled sungllnta through the rain.
Coaxed brave pageants up the lane,
Brought the fairies to the wood
And made all things wondrous good.
Where Is all the Stuff o" Dreams?
Much we had but yesterday.
Only children now. It seems.
Toss the fabric In their playl
Our Own Ike Walton.
The salt mackerel ls a sluggish fish
and oasy to capture If one goes about
It properly It has none of tho streuu
ouBly aggressive defensive tactics of
the black bass, but once fairly hooked,
It ls a Joy to the sportsman's eye to
see It leap Into the air, Its silvery
sides gleaming as tho salt that shakes
from them sparkles In the sunlight.
The salmon ls one of the canniest
of our Indoor fish. Casting for It in
the top shelf of the grocery ls no ama
teurlsh feat. True sportsmen will
have none of the pot-hunting tactics
of going after It with a basket. The
true way to get tho greatest enjoy
ment of Ashing for the canned salmon
Is to provide yourself with n sharp
can opener and spear the fish with
that, the bright red label on the can
affording a fair mark.
A great many fishermen confess to
a liking for the tinned sardine, which
is now in the open season. Different
fishermen have their differing baits,
but if you may approach the sardine
softly and quietly until you are near
enough to squeeze some lemon Juice
on It, the prize ls yours. Another bait
that will land 'them If no lemons are
obtainable is to extend the hand con'
talnlng a cracker spread with mustard.
The sardine will leap at the cracker.
The bright golden coat of the
smoked herring renders it attractive
to the angler who appreciates a color
ful game. Holding the noso in one
hand and n sponge of chloroform In
the other, you may attack the
smoked herring, great schools of
whioh are being graduated at this
time of the year.
The lobster is fair game at all
times of tho year. It is enticed by a
pleasant smile and quickly landed by
some remarks about a pretty dress or
a bracelet. Tho lobster turns a deep
red when it is stung.
The Middle Ages. .
"Why do you say that The Cry of
the Hansheo' is a story that ls laid
in the middle ages?" we ask of the
critic whose revlow of the book has
been brought to our notice.
"Ilecause it Is."
"Nonsense. The time of the book is
in the early '60s."
"Well, isn't f0 the middle ager
A bald-headed man can talk as much
about hereditary early baldness as a
