OP Dad Brown.
Of all the kids as went to school In our blamed
town.
There wa'n't no Oner feller there than Ol' Dad
Brown.
He wa'n't so tarsal handsome, n'r so bloom in'
smart;
Be wa'n't no bypercrita to whine about his
heart
But when It kum to goodness of the all-wool
kind.
He'd leave such ornery scrubs as too and me
behind.
N' all the girls liked blm. It seemed a little
strange.
For he didn't give no taffjr, 'n' nerer had no
chance;
N" wa'n't no good at sparkin somehow 't
wa'n't his bent,
N'as for fightln', fiddlesticks! wa'n't wuth a
cent.
"N the bullies all guyed him, 'n' used to say as
when
You got him In a corner be wouldn't fight a
hen.
But when a bound n' slugger, as ought to
bare been spiked.
Said somethin mean about a gal as us kids
liked.
It' we. as mad as hornets. Just stood by and
grins.
Instead o' Jumpln' In n klckln' off his shins
Ol' Dad bust out cryln' n yankln'off his coat.
Went flyln' at bim like a windmill 'n a goat;
'N'he'd a licked him, too, 'n' all hls.gol-
durned pack.
If the dirty coward hadn't tuk the bull thing
back,
N sneaked around the corner 'n' skulked up
town,
S' left us kids a yellin' there for Ol' Dad
Brown.
Jest there I learned a lesson, I ain't forgot It
The com to tie to ain't none of your braggln'
set.
But Jest the quiet kind, whose trumpbet goes
unblown.
Until some danger calls or wrong to be re
dressed Then bet your bottom dollar he does his level
best.
"N he alone will stand In life's reducin flame.
Whose soul untarnished Is by cankrin rust of
shame.
C. l W. In Needles Eye.
The Keystone Monogram's grand
opening occurred last Saturday
night and everything went off
most auspiciously. The new quar
ters are fitted up in an elegant
manner, the bar and fixtures being
massive and grand. Large crowds
were in attendance and while many
followed the games of chance others
took delight in playing a friendly
game of jkxjI or billiards. During
the entire evening the orchestra,
composed of Frank Watkins, pian
ist; Harry Miner, violinist, and
Henry Zaul, cornetist, ably assisted
by Leon Hahn, vocalist, produced
lively music. These gentlemen
form an excellent quartette and
area musical combination of which
Williams may well be proud.
Meanwhile the genial proprietors,
Cap. P. Smith and li. F. Sweet
wood, circulated, in their well
known friendly manner, among the
the throng, and occasionally assist
ed "Scotty" and AI in dispensing
the refreshments. The even
ing was a success in every particular.
