BABY'S PLEDGE.
(Wiitti-nli.v S. A. II. for the Citi/.kn.)
We girls were playing "Lady,"
Dressed in long skirts with trails,
And parasols, and hair done high,
And lady hats and veils?
We'd played at shoning, visiting,
Parties and church all day,
Until it seemed that really
There was nothing left to play.
Rut Elsie, who always had a plan
Beneath her clustering curfs,
Said "Lesf have a W. C. T. U..
Like the one mamma goes to, girls.
"We'll have a 'nitiation,
Like the college boys, you know,
And wear a badge like mammu's,
A pretty white ribbon bow.
And we will solemnly promise
To never, never drink,
And have a goat?and write a pledge ?
And?that is all, I think.
"Now Kato, you bring the ribbon,
Get some of your auntie Lou;
And Dorothy, you bring the goat?
I guess Ted's dog will do:
"And I will bring the paper
On which to write tne pledge,
1*1! get a piece of sister's,
With the pretty golden edge."
So Katy brought the ribbon.
Her auntie wasn't there,
So she took some from her basket?
I guess she wouldn't care !
'Twas hard to capture Fido,
He didn't care to play,
He didn't want to be a goat,
And was bound to run away!
So we tied him to a chair leg,
And there he sat and growled,
And when we sang a temperance hymn
That goat just upand howled!
When Elsie wrote her pretty pledge?
*'I "II never, never drink"?
That horrid goat just whisked his tail
And made her spill her ink!
We mopped it with our handkerchiefs
(I guess it will wash out)
And gave the goat a piece of cake,
So he wouldn't frisk about.
But on auntie's pretty carpet
Is a great big spot of ink!
We moved a rug lo cover it,
It's nicer there, I think.
When baby Bessie came to play
She was our new recruit,
Shesignedthe pledge, and woro her bow
So solemnly and cute!
We all had signed our names in full,
But baby just made O.
That doesn't stand for Bessie,
But we played it did, you know.
We all wished to be president,
And just were going to vote
When the ribbon broke?and it ended
In a wild chase for that goat!
Baby would not touch her mug
Of milk that night at tea;
She ate her brcad and butter.
As sober as could be.
Papa said "what's tho matter?"
And bent his head to hear,
And baby whispered, plainly,
"I'se firsty, papa dear!"
And she said, when papa answered?
"Have a glass of water, then"?
"I'se joined the double-see to you,
An' I never can jink again!"

REMARKS.
It does not always happen that every
body is pleased at a Sunday School
Convention, but it appeared to the
writer that. every face seemed to say
as plain as words could express it "I
have hada delightful, a glorious time."
I do say, there is no place in this
beautiful Northern Neck where the
Convention could have assembled under
the same conditions and been so well at?
tended. The delegates had no distance
to go, and could easily make their way
to and from the sessions of the body
without getting more than slightly
sprinkled?for it rained nearly all the
time.
Some of us had f eared that on account
of the body's meeting at the extreme
eastern boundary of the conventional
territory, the schools would be poorly
represented, but we were all surprised
and delighted at the fair s how ing of
representation.
Out of 40 schools, 31 reported and 28
of these were represented.
As to the effort of the church and
community to entertain we had exer
cised no concern about the matter, for
we knew too much about the Irvington
people and how royally they could do it,
but we had not dreamed of its being
done on such a fashion?so much and
such a delicious variety "that it seemed
acharity toeatit."
But the delightfully charming homes
to which these delegates were so cdur
teously welcomed constituted a feature
of the meeting the memory of which
will abide as some sweet dream. We
could hear all around us whisperings of
pleasure awakened by the sweet music
of the unpretentious choir which inter
spersed "the proceedings. But these
people seemed asequally delighted with
the Convention; so much so, that some
were heard to say: '?I f the Convention
wants to eome back here next year we
will entertain it again."
The Baptists were not alone in this
display of generous hospitality and
Christiancourtesy but brethren of Meth
odistand Presbyterian faiths "borewell
a part," and now in turn from usall an
equally generous appreciation.
fo all those who have never been so
fortunate as to see Irvington and know
it's people all we have to say is
"eome and see," Memuer.
THE CONFEDERATE REUNION.
BY MINNIK SEAY,
514 North 28th Street, Richmond, Va.
Get me my knapsack, Mary, and my uniform of gray;
Get my battered helmet, Mary, for I'll need them all today.
Get my canteen and my leggins, reach me down my rusty gun,
For I'm going out paradin' with the boys of '61.
Never mind them bloodstains, Mary; never rrflnd that ragged hole
It was left there by a bullet that was seeking for my soul.
Brush away those cobwebs, Mary, get the bonny flag of blue,
For I'm going out paradin' with the boys of '62.
These old clothes don't fit me, Mary, as they did when I was young
Don't you remcmber how neatiy to my manly form they clung?
Never mind that sleeve that's empty, let it dangle loose and free.
For I'm going out paradin' with the boys of '63.
Pull my sword belt tighter, Mary; fix that strap beneath my chin;
I've grown old and threadbare, Mary, like my uniform, andthin.'
But I reckon I'll pass muster, as I did in days of yore,
For I'm going out paradin' with the boys of '64.
Now, I'm ready, Mary, kiss me-kiss your old sweetheart good-bye.
Brush away those wayward tcardrops Lord, I didn't think you'd cry!
I'm not going forth to battle! chcer up, Mary, sakes alive:
I'm just going out paradin' with the boys of '65.
Soon we'll all be paradin", Mary, in that land beyond the sky
On that bright, celcstial shore, where we'll forever cease to cry;
But before we do go, Mary, let's meet the boys once more,
And practice for paradin' on that bright and shining shore.
"SEND US WIVES," IS
JVYOMING'S CRY.
Thoiisainls of Yonnjr Men in That
State Are Anxions to Get llelp
meets.
Tell us where and how we can get
wives,', is the cry that is going up from
thousands of young men in the West.
Mingled with the voices of the young
fellows are the more mature voices of
middle aged and even elderly men.
B?cause of the hardships attendant
upon a life in the West in the early days
a thousand men crossed the Mfssouri
River where a single woman made the
venture. This proportion was kept
up for years, and the male population
so greatly out numbered the female that
there were too few wives togo around.
In the Big Horn Basin, in Wyoming,
is a long, fertile district called theGrey
Bull Valley, from a river which flows
through it. All the ranchers were
wcalthy, but only half a dozen had
wives. Chinose usod to take care of
the houses in that country.
The ranchers met one day and 500 of
them formed the Grey Bull Matrimon
ial Club. They advertised in Eastern
papers for wives; telling of the advan
tages and praising the Wyoming coun?
try. I n two week | the government h ad
to send extra help to the Post Office.
The postma. I or was swamped with mail.
All of it was addressed to the matri
BMMtasl club. That was nearly two
years ago, and since that time there
there have been 400 weddings in the
Big Horn Basin.
At Chadron, Neb., the Northwestern
Railroad has an eating house at the de
pot. A dozen girls are employed there.
It is in the heart of the cattle country,
and hundreds of cowboys and ranchers
live in that section. The manager of
that eating house changes forces about
once each month. The girls simply
marry and become "queens" of big
ranches or settle on homesteads with
their husbands.
There never has been a time when
there was not a dearth of women school
teachers in Wyoming, South Dakota,
Nebraska and other Western States.
The teachers marry just as fast as they
come into the new country. Two years
is a long time for a teacher to be on
school duty in the West. In a few years
they are sending their own children to
some new teacher. The public schools
are great recruiting stations for wives
for the ranchers.
At Laramie, Wyo., the young men
formed a matrimonial club and placed
advertisements in Eastern papers ask
ing for wives. There are many girls
in Laramie and they held a meeting to
express their indignation that the boys
should go elsewhere when there were
unmarried girls in their own town.
The result was that the girls organized
a club and placed counter advertise?
ments wherever the men had advertised,
advising girls to stay at home and cal?
ling attention to the fact that there
were plenty of unmarried girls in
Laramie. ?*
INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER.
A newspaper that at the outset joins
its destiny to that of its community, de
termined to win>uccess for advancement
of that town, to encourage the making
for the town a better, and better and
yet ever better place to live in and to do
business in and be|proud of, such a news?
paper when passing years have demon
strated its purpose, must find that it has
aunique place in the community?a place
impossible of attainment by any individ
ual or by any other institution.
No individual, no other institution, is
given such responsibilities or must meet
such requirements. In such a news?
paper is concentrated a range of en

it takes on the quality of citizenship?a
quality denied to the product of any
other institution.?Kansas City Star.
MEMORIAL TO FIRST PRINTER.
Of particular interest to Virginia
newspaper men is the pew (No. 6) in
the restored Bruton church set aside as
a memorial to William Parks. The pew
ioor is marked with a bronze tablet
bearing the inscription:
"Willliam Parks. Printer-Editor,
1736."
William Parks was the "Father of
Virginia Journalism." He cstablished
Lhis paper August 6,1736. The Gazette
was the official organ of the Colonial
Government, bearing the same relation
to the local govcrnment as the London
Gazette did to the goverment of the
mother country.
William Parks was a practical printer.
He published legal documents and law
books, some of which are in existence.
The date of his death and the place of
his burial are unknown, but his dust
probably mingles with the dust of the
other colonists in old Bruton church
yard. To make the pew of special in?
terest to the newspaper men of the
present day, and to make the memorial
more significant, it is proposed to allow
the members of the craft to donate the
pew. Virginia Gazette.

AFTER THE "M1YSTERS."
(Timos DiapaUh.)
The reputable lawyer regards his pro
f essional ethics as highly and as sacredly
as his honor, and he endeavors at all
times to protect his calling from un
scrupulous practitioners who may eome
in to disgrace it. Of late years "shy
ster" practices have became common ih
some sections, and bills have been f ramed
forpassage by the Legislatures of many
states to drive out the offendere. Such
a measure has been prepared by the
Hampden county, Mass.,bar, and isnow
before. the General Assembly of that
State. The debate indicated that prob?
ably a majority of the members are of
opinion that some action is necessary to
curb the evil.
Penalty of law or disbarment is the
proper punishment for those lawyers
who degrade an honorable profession.
The epidemic of graft and the desire for
money are mainly responsible for this
condition of affairs.
The ambuiance-chasing lawyer, as
the Philadelphia Public Ledger truly re
marks, is essentially guilty of barratry,
an oflfence for which the mere lay man can
be punished under the criminal code.
Many lawyers, however, are slow in tak
ing the initiative, when they should
promptly seek to expel their associates
who fail to observe what ought to be
an inviolable rule.

BACHELORS YS. BACHELOR MAIDS.
While Danville, 111., ladsandlassiesarc
beginning to experience the undefinable
sensations which scientists say are
more apt to prevail during the spring
seasons and are variously termed love
and spring fever, according to the per
sonality or mood, their elders, who
are classed as "old bachelors," "old
maids," or "bachelor girls," are also
having a touch of the malady.
The girls and old maids in mass
meeting petitioned the town council to
place a U*x upon unmarried men. The
old bachelors in retaliation asked that
human icicles should be taxed $50. At
their next meeting the girls prepared
and issued the following reply:
"We have read the reply of the Dan?
ville bachelors to our appeal to the City
Council, in which they make a counter
[>roposition to tax us $50 for every time

NEW POST CARD REGULATIONS.
The new postal law went into effect
Vfarch 1st whereby it is permissible to
?end souvenir postal cards through the
-nails, containing writing on either
nde. Hitherto it has been permissible
to send cards with the writing on the
reverse side only.
Cards are often very handsome, and
the reverse side is entirely occupied by
the lithograph. To write on the re?
verse side of these cards is diflicult
aecause of the glazing of the surface,
ind also because it mars the beauty of
the cards. By the new law, people will
t>e permitted to write on the front of
the card, in the apace reserved for that
purpose, as is permitted in foreign
:ountries. The new law does not refer
to the ordinary one eent postals issued
by the Government, which have an en?
tirely blank reverse side, for the sole
purpose of the communication. No
writing will be permitted on the ad?
dress side of these cards.

THE NEWSPAPERS CLAIM.
A newspaper is in no sense a child
of charity. It earns twice over every
dollar it receives, and it is second to no
enterprise in contributing to the up
building of a community. Its patrons
reap far more beneflts from its pages
than its publishers, and in calling for
the support of the community in which
[t is published it asks for no more than
in all fairness belongs to it, though
generally it receives less. ?West Point

one at bedtime. As a rule, laxative dosea

Ask your doctor about this.
