Where is the boy-the real boy-the boy
that used to be.
The boy that planned to run away and
go to sail the sea.
The boy that yearned to twist a brake
upon the local freight,
The boy that thought a circus ring held
all of proud estate?
And where's the boy-the boy-est boy that
ever lived at all.
Who whistled on his fingers in a wild.
Boys nowadays go solemnly at learning
this and that
Which he held in the busy brain beneath
his ragged hat
Oh. where's the hat he used to wear?
The "coffee straw" whose peak
Rose high, while all the sagging brim
slapped him on neck and cheek,
Or else it was a "hickory," a shoe string
for a band
'he dealer strung them on a cord, all
ready to his hand.
lie was a Boy! He knew more things
than you and I may learn,
He knew where Indian turnips grow, and
how they Itch and burn,
He knew the birds familiarly, he watched
And had his private fishing place where
only he might go,
Re went barefooted-- ow his feet got
stone-bruised right away!
He never had his two front teeth. Where
Is that boy today?
h, how he'd whistle! First and little
finpgers In his lips,
And then a blast that out the air like to
a hundred whlpe!
And how he looked! His morth stretched
wide, his eyes all strained and set
It's strange that such a boy as that is
now no longer met.
Decollared and be-shoed our boys go eis
lesmly through 1tfe
And never stand red-faced sad blow ap
ea their finger-fe.

"Where is he?" the apple trees say it
In all the new joy of their bloom,
The breeze come laughing, and sway it
Along with the clinging perfume;
The grass that is greener and cleaner
Than any the meadow has known.
Is asking it, miming the gleaner
Of clover by summer winds blown.
"Where is he?" the brooklet is singing
As gayly it chatters along;
"Where is her' the birds that are wing
Have blent In the lilt of their song;

His feet that were shapely and comely.

They mind how his wee fingers scorning
The thorns, at the branches would haul
Until they could reach to the rarest

And claim it because it was fairest
Of all of the roses that grew.
They miss him, and miss him, and mism
The breeze of the morning is sad
Because it no longer may kiss him
And shake with his laugh that was
The orchard is solemnly quiet,
So quiet, indeed, that the bees
In wonder go hurriedly by it
And seek In the faraway trees.
"Where is her'" A hush on the hillside
A silence all day In the field.
An untrodden path by the rillside
And then is the answer revealed.
A myrtle is lovingly creeping,
A cypress bends down to be near

Disraeli was speaking in support of
Lord Lytton's motion condemning the
evacuation of Kandahar. "My lords,"
he said, "the key of India is not Merv,
or Herat, or"-her, came a long pause,
and rather painful anxiety in the au

of the thread-"It is not the place of

The Ifugaos are very friendly, and
are continually offering gifts of chick

drink on the order of taput, which they
bring forth on all occasions, and the
etiquette of the country requires that
one should take a drink. The con
tinued invitation to drink this "cong.
cong" was the most disagreeable part
of the trip through their country.
