GANDERBONE 'S JUNE FORECAST
(Copyrighted 1008, by C. H. Ricth.)
It was the seventeenth of June,
And great was the convention?
The vote was coming pretty soon,
And thrilling was the tension.
"Alabama!" cried the clerk,
And some there were went daft
When a U. S. marshal showed his head
Out in the seething mass and said:
"Count 22 for Taft!".
The Cannon men turned pale as ghosts
And the Hughes men gasped for
The men for Fairbanks clung to posts
As colorless as death.
"Arkansas!" the clerk exclaimed,
And the hall shook fore and aft
When a spry postmaster, white of
? Hopped to the main deck of his chair,
And cried " Eighteen .for Taft!"
The Fairbanks men exuded groans,
And the Cannon men shed tears?
And the Hughes men uttered none but
That once had utter cheers.
"California!" booned (lie clerk,
And the whole convention laughed
When a revenue collector rose
And whistled shrilly through his nose,
"Count 20 more for Taft!"
The Hughes men looked at the Cannon
And they crawled out of their
|HAnd the Fairbanks follows joined
HP tliein when
ft They pulled their Teddy Hears.
K And they all rushed up to the center
As men who had mode ready?
And when the din and the tumult
id the dust had settled down inTlic
candidate, was Teddy.
And when Hill Taft discovers what
mean trick they have played him
'11 shed his coat and go to find the
in who lias betrayed him. He'll liunr
up the White House steps, with
cli jump growing warmer, and Ted
ill hear him coming in and slip
to his armour. They '11 spar around
e room a bit, and Ted will cry, "See
re Hill! I know the whole affair
ust look all-thunderation queer,
11; but listen: You'll be named for
jce, and when we're both elected,
jliy, I'Jl resign. You'll get it, Hill?
Vet is, that T suspected Rryan would
Ifeat you, Bill, which made it neeesfor
me to head the ticket, Hill,
v everything miscarry."
3*1 Bill will sink into a chair,
awa* that he has messed it, and will
exclaim, '' I see it now! By Jove, I
should have guessed it! O, most ungrateful
wretch am I to think that
you who made me?my benefactor and
mv friend?had shamelessly betrayed
Whereat they will embrace and hug
As lovers reunited,
And Ted will rest on William's breast
And softly say, "De-lighted!"
June gets its name from Juno, the
Roman goddess of marriage. Juno was
supposed to see everybody happily
married. She was highly gratified to
do this, for she herself had. married
Jupiter, who was a worse runabout
than Boni Gould. When the celestial
chorus was playing Parnassus, Jupiter
hung around the stage door like
a Pittsburger. He stirred up more
scandal than Tom Piatt, and was as
bold as Gilmanaire Gorey. Juno finally
avenged herself upon her rivals by
turning tlicni into cows, which made
Jupiter a cattle king.
The college graduate will hear
The Macedonian cry
Of Kansas farmers who must get
The wheat cut by July.
I They'll rustle out while yet the lark
Is chirruping his matin,
I And chase the binder round the field
^ Exuding Greek and Latin.
The dinner bell will bring the sage,
the scholar and the cynic, and dintiei
will become a sort of scientific clinic
Astronomers will talk of Mars, ol
Saturn and of Venus, aiftl Latinists
recall a few romances of Silenus. The
Junobug will -be mentioned as the
genus Laehnosterna, and other bug?
will speak of land as being terra firnia
They'll quarrel, shout and sometime*
swear in Arabic and Greok, and now
and then a dainty hand will clasp 5'
damask check. And all the while th<
farmer, full of wondering and doubt
will deeply marvel what the hotel Hil
it.'s all about.

They will not have any. Upon the
contrary, the stork will till only single
orders under the zodiacal sign of
Cancer the Crab. Children born under
this sign will crawl backward and
cry for erabapple jelly.
The smiling heavens will inspire
The skylark and the linnet,
And the busy parsons will turn out
A new bride every minute
A few friends will throw shoes and
And taste the wedding cake,
And then make bets among themselves :
On whether it will take.
Mr. Bryan will complete his wall
around. Denver about the 30th, and,
, will set a deadfall at the gate for
Governor Johnson. In the course of 1
the month all democrats who have
fought (ist-fights on the (loor of congress,
or in any other way distin-'
guished themselves, will be honorably
mentioned for vice-president.
I'lie boys will seek the swimming hole
In quite excited packs,
And paddle in it till the sun
Puts blisters on their backs;
And when the disobedients
Come wet-haired back to town,
They '11 get a few more blisters raised
A little lower down.
Commencements will come in again
and knowing well this bore, the wily
parent will take up a scat quite near
the door; and when his own child has
declaimed, and shows his skill and
pluck, he'll lead the plaudits for a
1 time and impolitely duck.
The hungry boy will stow a few
| green apples in his turn, and his ma
will lay him belly up out in the blaz1
ing sun; and after while the pain will
cease, the agony and gripe, because,
by virtue of the sun, the once-green
fruit is ripe.
And then the Fourth will come again,
With death and lockjaw from it,
And Pike's Peak in the public eye,
^ With Bryan on the summit.
