She drew It from its resting place.
Amid old lavender and lace,
And laughed to merry scorn
The faded bow and sprays of blue
For-get-me-nots the border knew
The feather crushed and torn.
The bonnet on her brow she drew.
And tucked a wilful curl or two
That truant played, within;
Then with a shy, coquettish pout
She smoothed the crumpled ribbons
And tied them 'neath her chin.
His eyes her mirrors were, and hers
Were soft as rippling water stirs .
In dreamland's garden closes.
Forgetful of my presence there,
He kissed her cheeks, her brow, her
Her Hps, twin scarlet roses.
I thought of how her mother wore
That bonnet, long, long years be
fore A veil hung coyly on It.
I thought of how I tore the mist
Of lace aside, and boldly kissed
The face within the bonnet.
How history repeats! For me
The poke a halo used to be,
Her mother's brow entwining;
And now, I see, he in his dreams
Has wrought the same ideal; it
On her, an aureole shining.

HAZE FROM DISTANT FIRES
Smoky Atmosphere Noticeable Here
Not Traceable to Other Sources.
While haze from forest fires In Wis
consin and Michigan is common here
nobody seems to recall a time when
smoke from fires In Montana and Idaho
has come this far east. Weather men,
however, say that the haze that Is so
noticeable now cannot be ascribed to
any cause other than the fires in the
far west. It has been some time since
