Eight years old and goin' on nine.
Teacher says I'm doin' fine.
Git my lessons every day.
Hardly ever have to stay
After school for being slow.
Ain't'so very happy, though.
'Cause the fellers laugh at ne.
All but Johnny Baker-he
Takes my side. He knows all right
I ain't strong enough to fight.
'Cause I hurt myse'lf one day
Fallin' off a farmer's sleigh.
And the doctor cut my side
Awful deep, and ma she cried.
And since then Pm awful thin.
And, gee whiz; it hurts like sin
When I try to jump and run.
So you see it ain't. no fun
When the fellers laugh and say:
Fraidy cat, you dassent play."
And my eyes get kinder wet
When they call me " Teacher's Pet.
Gee: they never talked that way
Till I tumbled off the sleigh.
Wunst I licked three kids so quick
That it made 'em good and sick:
And I uster dodge and run
Jes' as fast as any one.
Now when recess comes along
1 jes' wait to hear the gong
Call us back to work a lot.
'Cause that's all the fun I've got.
When the kids play "one old cat"
I jes' sit and hold the bat.
Wishin' I could cork the ball
Like I uster do last fall.
Yesterday when Reddy Lee
Seen me settin' there, says he:
" Fellers, look at ' Teacher's Pet
He's afraid to play, you bet.
'Couse he knows 'd smash his face
All around this old place !"
Johnny Baker seen me cry.
And he blacked old Reddy's eye.
And he made his nose bleed too.
How I wisht that I could do
Somethin' good for Johnny : he
Allers does so much fer me.
Maybe twon't be very long
Till~my side gets godadsrn*
If is Igood and strong'
If it ever does, I bet
They won't call me "Teacher's Pet.'
A Creeping Death.
Blood poison creeps up towards the
heart., causing death. J. E. Stearns,
Belle Plaine, Minn., writes that a friend
dreadfully injured his band, which
swelled up like blood poisoning. Buck
len's Arnica Salve drew out the poison,
healed the wound and saved his life.
Best in the world for burns and sores.

Several years ago, soon after "Treas
ure Island" had appeared and attract
ed public attention to Mr. Stevenson,
two gentlemen were traveling up to
London from Norfolk. One of them
was reading "Treasure Island." Pres
ently, having finished the book. he
dropped it into his traveling bag, re
marking, "Well, I think I could my
self write a better child's story than
that." The other, who, by the way,
was his brother, urged him to try.
Six weeks afterward the former hand
ed to the latter a complete tale in
manuscript. It was "King Solomon's
Mines," the first novel that made a
reputation for Rider Haggard.-London
"According to this paper," said Mrs.
Naggs, "widows make the best wives."
"I don't doubt It, my dear," replied
Naggs, "but nevertheless I don't feel
justified in shneing off at the present
moment merely for the sake of making
a good wife of you."

A Heartielt Tribute to a Friend.
A friend of former United States
Marshal Isaac 0. Barnes having died,.
he attended the funeral. He arrived
promptly and seated himself in the
crowded room to await the services.
For some reason there was a very long
delay, and the solemn silence of the
darkened room was anything but con
genial to a man of Mr. Barnes' dispo
sition. The heat also was very oppress

Barnes remained silent for what to

a hoarse whisper audible all over.

"Yes, indeed," said the stranger. "He
was a very fine man." -
"I should * say he was," replied
Barnes, "and smart, too; smarter than

louder whisper, getting excited, "if he
had had the running of this funeral
he'd been underground an hour ago."
