I like to sit and think of bygone days; When she was near with her sweet gentle ways, She often came when life seemed dark and drear, And with a smile gave words of hope and cheer. I count those days, as diamonds set in gold; As dear as any memory can hold. They’ll always be a light along the way; The rays of which will brightly shine for aye. I know that when I cross the bar, I’ll find her near the gates ajar; And her greeting, with a smile, will be “Come in, dear friend, and rest with me.” Celia Mabel Nickerson. Swanville, Maine.

DIFFERING IDEAS OF GENIUS World' Has Never Thoroughly Recog nized Any One Definition of High ly Prized Quality. Carlyle was much laughed at for saying that genius was an Infinite ca pacity for taking pains. That does not sound like genius; one imagines genius as raveling its hair, whatever raveling may be, and producing the im mortal Word to the accompaniment of epileptic fits; absinthe also goes with genius very well. But in reality genius, I suspect, is a tamer affair and arises easily enough in men like Rembrandt, who painted pictures because he liked doing it and because the sitters paid him for their portraits. Much more satisfactorily to Carlyle it arises in men like Flaubert, who revealed much of his attitude in one phrase of his cor respondence. “Today I have worked sixteen hours and have at last finished my page.” Therein lies the difference between Flaubert and De Maupassant; it may be, too, that Boileau was right in advising the poet a hundred times to replace his work upon the bench, endlessly polish it and polish it again, but many instances of almost sponta neous creation confronts us. It is enough to quote that in six years, be tween 1602 and 1608, Shakespeare ap pears to have written eleven .plays, among them “Julius Caesar," “Ham let,” “Othello,” "Macbeth” and “King Lear.” What shall we say, then, of the vague thing, genius, which is to man kind what the thing we call soul is to man? For my part, I believe it to be volcanic rather than sedimentary. It is as if the spirit of the race accumu lated in a creature, the spirit of life claiming to be born. Genius will out, but it is most frequent in certain pe riods of human history, such as the Elizabethan or Medicean, in certain places, such as France, Italy and the low countries, under pertain influences, such as oppression, war, revolution or social decay. That is an interesting catalogue, mu, if history repeats itself, the future for genius, as evidenced particularly in art, would be black, for there have been few periods where comfort, ease and security bred genius. It is as if the plant needed something to push against. Everyday life becomes more secure, justice more certain, property more assured; humanity grows fat. and the grease of its comfort collects round its heart. It is difficult to imagine ge nius flourishing in a world perfectly administered by city councils.—Har per’s Magazine. Literary Towns. Ontario has had- the good sense to call one of its towns or cities Shake speare. and the suggestion has more than once been made that the new fed eral capital of the Commonwealth of Australia should receive the same fine and illustrious name. Bacon figures twice in town nomen clature in America, but whether it was in compliment to the great Elizabethan, or to the product of Chicago there is nothing to show. In the same great country which called its capital after its greatest man, Washington, there are a large number of Miltons, and al most as many Byrons, and at least a dozen Burnses, probably the last being the abode of canny Scots or their de scendants. There are only two Tennysons, how ever. and the same number of Shelleys and Keatses and Ruskins and Balzacs. Thackeray has one town named after him, whereas his rival and contem porary, Dickens, scores three times.— London Tit-Bits. Looks for World Famine. Mr. Egan. United States minister to Denmark, says if the war lasts two years longer ti e whole world will be on the verge ot starvation. That is possible. With 10.000.000 men in arms, consuming and not producing, the time is coming and is not far off when there will be no food left. A foodies! world will be a strange experience. There have been famines, but for the people to have nothing to eat any where is a situation that has never been anticipated heretofore. There is some gratification in th'nking that the Hun will be getting hungrier than we are and will be turning to us to bor row a itttle flour and bacon, which we will be sure to lend him on condition that he promises to behave himself and let up on his kultur.—Ohio State Journal. Keep Bees and Need No Sugar. The United States department of agriculture has started a campaign to stimulate bee-keeping, this as a real war economy measure, for honey can take the place of sugar, and there are absolutely unlimited supplies of honey in the flowers that grow wild all over the land. Bee-keeping is very easy, and any man who goes about it carefully and with such elementary instructions as he can get from the department of agriculture can have a good crop of honey the first year and be able to laugh at the scarcity of sugar, besides making a profit by the sale of the product of his bees.
