THE ABSENT-MINBEB BEGGAR.
BY RTJDYARD KIPLING.
When you've shouted "Rule Britannia"—when you've sung "God Save the
Queen"—
When you've finished killing Kruger with your mouth-
Will you kindly drop a shilling in my little tambourine
For a gentleman in kharki ordered South ?
He's an absent minded beggar and his weaknesses are great—
But we and Paul must take him as we find him—
He is out on active service, wiping something off a slate—
And he left a lot o' littile things behind him !
Duke's son—cook's son—son of a hundred kings—
(Fifty thousand horse and foot going to Table Bay '.)
Each of 'em doing his country's work (and who's to look after their
things?)
Pass the hat for your credit's sake and pay ! pay ! pay !
There are girls he married secret, asking no permission to.
For he knew he wouldn't get it if he did.
There is gas and coal »nd vittles and the house-rent falling due,
Aud it's more than rather likely there's a kid.
There are girls he walked with casual. They'll be sorry now he's gone
For an absent minded beggar they will Hod him;
But it ain't the time for sermons with the winter coming on—
We must help the girl that Tommy's left behind bim.
Cook's son—Duke's son—son of a belted Earl-
Son of a Lambeth publican—it's all the same today !
Each of 'em doing his country's work (aud who's to look after the
girls ?
Pass the hat for your creditor's sake, and pay ! pay! pay !
There are families by the thousand, far too proud to beg or speak,
And they'll put their sticks and bedding up the spout,
And they'll live on half o' nothing paid 'em punctual once a week.
For the man that earns the wage is ordered out.
He's an absent-minded beggar, but he heard his country call,
And his regiment didn't need to semi to find him;
He chucked his job and joined it. So tbe job before ns all
Is to keep the home that Tommy's left behind him !
Duke's job—cook'B job—gardner. baronet, groom-
Mews or palace or paper shop—there's some one gam away !
Each of 'em doing his country's work (and whose to look after the
room V)
Pass the hat for your credit's sake, and pay ! pay ! pay !
Let us mtnage so as later we can look him in the face,
And tell him—what he'd very much prefer-
That while he saved the Empire his employer paved his place,
And his mates (that's you and me) looked out for her.
He's an absent-minded beggar, and he may forget it all.
But we do not want his kiddies to remind him
That we sent 'em to the work-house while their daddy hammered Paul,
So we"ll help the homes our Tommy's left behind him !
Cook's home—Duke's home—home of a millionaire,
(Fifty thousand horse and loot going to Table Bay !)
Each of 'em doing his country's work (and what have you to spare?)
Pass the bat for your credit's sake, and pay ! pay ! pay !
Consistency is a Jewel.
Back in 1888 Wm. McKinley, then a
member of the House of Representa
tives, attacked the then Secretary of
the Treasury, Mr. Fairchild. for hav
ing distributed among banks without
interest fully $59,000,000 of surplus
money, that, as he put it, ought to be
in the Treasury, and he charged, with
particular eloquence and indignation,
that the President of lhe United
States and his administration were
solely responsible for the congested
condition of the Treasury and the
alarm that existed about the currency
situation.
So indignant, indeed, was Congress
man McKinley concerning this outrage
that in the Republican convention of
1888, he, as chairman of the committee
on resolutions, saw that into the plat
form was put a denunciation of 'The
Democratic policy of loaning the gov
ernment moneys without interest to
pet banks.'
It is estimated that before the distri
bution of money to banks now begun
is completed, there will be $129,000,000
thus deposited in pet banks without
interest, which they will loan out at
from 6 to 10 per cent. This is the
policy which the successful McKinley
adopts, and is exactly the policy which
the McKinley struggling upward to
ward eminence denounced in 1888.

Crumpacker s Blow at the South
The usual Congressional ass has put
in appearance. Representative Cium
packer, of Indiana, has brought forth
a measure to cut down the quota of
Southerti Congressmen. In other
words, to benefit the Republican party
Representative Crumpacker has evolv
ed the brilliant scheme of depriving
the Southern negroes of representation
in Congress. The excuse given by Mr.
Crumpacker for this is that many of
the negroes cannot comply with State
requirements regarding voters. The
negroes were deliberately enfranchised
by the Republican party for the pur
pose of outvoting the Democrats in
the South aud to retaiu Republican
power in tb.' South. Are the negroes
more ignorant now than in 1896? Why
does not the brilliant Mr. Crumpacker
rooie forward with a sc'ieme tor re
hiring the Congressional representa
tion of his State or of Massachusetts,
i.v the ground that there are thou
-niids of men in both States unable to
fulfill the requirements exacted of
volts f Mr. Criuupackei'.s scheme is
n deliberate attempt t> pen-eeu:e the
South and will be recognized as such
i>y every man, white or colored, from
Virginia to Texas. It will not work.—

Humor in Congress.
Representative Allen, of Mississippi,
must look to bis laurels. There is a
new humorist in Congress. The dis
covery is Cushman, of Washington,
whose wit is keen, whose sense of the
< ridiculous is acute, and who tells a
good story in a delightful fashion
Cushman is tall and lank, of Abe Lin
coln style of architecture with legs sc
thin that he himself says that he has
often been arrested for being without
visible means of support. Another
quaint expression is that he was once
so poverty-stricken that he sewed
buckshot in his summer coat Co make
it heavy enough for winter wear. He
bubbles over with original sayings
and he utters them in a spontaneous,
unconscious way that adds to their
effectiveness.
Mr, Cushman is put down in the
C'onc>essioiialDirectory as a Congress
man at-large, his State being without
definite Congressional districts. This
reminds him of a story. He was once
approaching a town where be was
billed to make a speech aud stopped at
a house on the outskirts of the town
to get a drink of water. He met the
farmer's wife at the well.
"Wh.it is the political sentiment
around here?" askedCushniao.
"I dunno," said the woman, "I don't
go to political meetings. They say
there is a Congressman at large, and I
think the safest thing for me to do is
to stay at home." —Washington Post.

I You may have heard
j about SCOTT'S EMULSION
I and have a vague notion,

; purest and the best in the'
i world, but made so palata-,

SCOTT'S j
EMULSION j
looks like cream; it nour- \
ishes the wasted body of J
the baby, child or adult \
better than cream or any %
other food in existence. It!
bears about the same rela- 1
tion to other emulsions that f
cream does to milk. If you J
have had any experience)
with other so-called "just as <
good" preparations, you!
will find that this is a fact. ,
The hypophosphites that are J
combined with the cod-liver oil!
give additional value to it because j
they tone up the nervous system,
