Tbe flush of youth was on his cheeks; his eyes were clear and his step elaatlcT In those days he could-likely have taken you and rolled you in the dust as Of ten as be wanted to. He could have poked you In tbe nose, and siappea your jaws until your teeth rattled without half trying. But he haa run his race and Is now patiently waiting for bis summons to cross the bar. Tou will be like him some day. The time will come when you will be no better oft than the old man. Tour ears will be greeted by coaree Jokes from the kids and you will realise what It is to be alone. That la, you will be unless you materially change your ways. For with all -your youth and gayety, you are cutting no more Ice In the world than the poor old fellow who waa the object of your mirth.- . ,r- ' . -'..V : v You can't make me believe that the wearing of a campaign button ever helped elect any candidate to of fice. 1 ' " ji ' jt 'V:'.
