August Forecast.
Co(uorrIIT 1908, BY C. U. RIETH
It was August the third,
And quite soft were the skies,
And it might be imagined
Bill Taft was likewise;
Yet he played it -that day upon
In a way politicians despise.
Which they met on the train,
As all candidates will,
And they wagered a dinner
In test of their skill
The winner to make the best
put on
The homely cognomen of Bill.
"bl suppose," Bryan said,
Stirring ice In his tea,
"That in view of the times,
As between you and me,
The smaller the bill is the better,
The which any one will
"Very clever," said Taft,
Here is mine: I've a hunch,
You are not very strong,
(And he gave him a punch),
For they don't like a long over
due bill!"

And the Peerless One paid for
the lunch.
August was named for Au,
gustus Cosar, nephew and
adopted son of Julius. August
was every bit as great a man,
but his uncle had a better press
bureau. When the Black Band
got Julius, his nephew was but
19; but he had already worn the
toga virillis and shot a bear.
Mark Anthony tried to get him
out of the way by making him
a sort of vice-president, but after
Augustus had beaten him 5 u
and 2 to play on the green at
Modena, the big d&awing vard
of the Roman chautauqua-was
glad to marry the young man's
sister and be a kind of Nick
Longworth around the Roman
White House.
The Augustan age was the
glory of Rome. .Like Mr. Roose
velt, Augustus showed fight all
-the time, and the empire en
.joyed peace. There were no re
formers, and times were good.
The emperor liberally patronizei
literature, and even wrote ve'rsel
himself. Poets like Horace anm
Virgil had their own enamlele<
gold chariots with liveried alli
-gator bait on the job behind, anm
-instead of having the cruel cir
cus games of Nero, the populac(
met in the colliseum and wrot4
limercks for prizes. It is.saI~
that Augustus found -Rome
city of brick, and left it a -cit
-of marble. He was a verypoi
man, and in order to miake~
month as long as ,anybody'
they took a day from Februggi
and added it to August, whicl

The bullfrog will essay his lay
along 'the winding creek, and
the dude will bite the summer
girl upon her damask .cheek;
the sun will burn the festive
tramp clear through his under
shirt, and Carrie Nation will
give tongue, and kick up sod
and dirt, the while her ladyship
pursues the new directoire skirt.
The candidates will buzz
around before the voter's door,
and all the babies will get kissed
and snuggled up some more; the
motherwill say, "Ain'the nice!"
with every kiss and hug, but
the father will declare he's a
dern old kissing bug.
The Anna-mosity which the
Count Boni de Castellane and
Prince Helle de Sagan bear one
another. will cool a little, and
about the 15th they will get to
getlier and shoot dice for the
Gould children. The fleet will
continue to banquet acros the
Pacific by easy stages, and upon
reaching Manila the stoinachE
of the officers will be put in dry
dock and scraped.

Editor Told the Truth.
'Miss Vey Morgan, da tghter
of. J. L. Morgan, editor of the
WaItrika (Okla.) News, was
mra ledrecently to N. L. Reed,
a yoking business man of that
place. The editor, in giving an
acDount6f tl4e'wedding, says:
For the first time in our 'life
we have the privilege of writing
the announcement of the mar
riag of bur own daughter, and
we do not have t6 write a lot of
stuff that we don't believe about
the. blushing bride, etc. Time
can tell whether either one of
them is entitled to congratula
tions. We only hope that they
may never regret their actions,
and if 'they do they can blame
themselves, as they have made
their choice. They also ha re
our best wishes. Our advice we
are not going to offer, because it
would not be accepted at what
we-would'consider it worth."
Fruit and Sugar for Horses
Grain Is not the only food on
which the horse thrives. In
Egypt the Khedive's best mares
are fed largely on currants, and
these fruit-fed animals are noted
for-their endurance an4 speed.
Figs, during the fig harvest,
form the food of the horses of
Shyra; they turn to it from
oats or hay. The green tops of
the sugarcane are fed to the
horses of the West Indies, and
for long weeks, in many parts
of Canada,. windfall apples form
the horse's only food. In Tas
mania peaches and in Arabia
dates talke the place of the usua
6hay and oats, vorn and bran.
