He'll iiinch himt'.f a time or two, rollover ou his bed, engage in calisthenics till he is sure he isn't dead, recall the day's significance with never-Jailing humor, and come out to compare hi girth with that of the consumer. And side by aide before hit hole these two will riminisce.and each will tell the other what hia weight, if any, la. They'll feel of one another's rib, tell stories, laugh and prattle, jump up and down to see whose bones will make the drier tattle, and then, with standing back to back and no flnall bit of unc tion, they'll ascertain if they can throw a shadow in conjunction. Ar.d w hich the country wiil await with trembling and misgiving, for if they can, we'll lmve to think of how to keep on living another SO days and nights, frostbit and tempest-shaken, and pay ing an admission fee to see a piece of bacon. But let us all be reassured And have the heart to sing: We don't believe a dozen such Could bot e to show a thing; Or forty of them half and half In solid phalanx there, Unless they couuted One-two-three, And Oiled themselves with air. Onr Mr. Taft should be ashamed to be so fat and sleek with everything so high we can't eat meat but once a week. He ought to be too big a man in other ways than his to keep so buxom when he sees how thin the country is. A sympathetic president in smb. a time of test would ask for nothing but to take pot luck with all the rest. He'd eat his hard and simple crust, his prunes and batter cake, and join the country in the stand we've taken as to steak. It does seem ike hard-heartedness for one in such a place to feed himself on tarrapiu and set ua such a pace. He ought to live on hominy and grow so thin and gaunt hat anyone with seeing him would think he was in want. It would become him very well to say, "I live on rice," and prtive it when he wrapped his coat armit.d his body twice. We'd all stand up and honor him, alike with us bereft, and cheer him with what liltlu strength the most of us have left. - St. Valentine will open up His moving picture show And run a nickelodeon ' For ssveu day a or so. He'll show us Algernon the Dude, And Little Wit and Dunce, And lKre us ten ibly again With those unwitting stunts. And maybe this time we shall rise, As we should do, by gum, And put this whole infernal brand Of hauior on the bum. We never did know what it meant, if anything at all, or who it was that started if, or why we had to fall for sat li a custom. Oftjj we think the way that we behave most make the good St. Yaltn'iue turn over iu his grave. It is a shame to bleak his sleep, which else were quite, seieno, and ke'p him spin ning just as if there were a belt between thai ancient and respected tomb of him a long time diad and all the wheels thereto in some fool picture maker's head. At any rate the country will by hook or crook survive and hail the blessed day that saw tieorge Washington arrive.
