r S The Twins Decoration Bay
EltCY nnd Mercy were 10yearold
twins and they resembled each
PERCY ns much as any brother and
sister can They were both sweet
dlfcposltlonod children with generous
Impulses and on the morning of Decorn
tlon Day their good mother gave them
two baskets of beautiful flowers to carry
to the cemetery telling them to scatter
the blossoms ou the graves that had not
been remembered by any one else for
lu the cemetery lay many unkept graves
the family and friends of the sleepers
having wandered far from that part of
the world or were too poor to buy flowers
to use as emblems of their lore of tho
dear departed
As Percy and Mercy walked nlong the
pretty treeshaded suburban street lead
ing from the town to tho cemetery their
eyes fell on Home little children playing
about the dooryard of a poor humble col
lage which bore the signs of poverty
t was the evening before Decoration
Day and Willie and Mabel were In
the rose garden cutting roses to
weavo Into wreaths for use ou tho
morrow Near to the town In which
they Hi oil was n Military Cemetery nnd
it was the custom of the townspeople to
lay floral tributes on the soldiers gmvos
every Decoration Day And among those
most interested In thus showing their
respect and love for the men who had
fought and died for their country was
old Mr Grey Willies and Mnbcls grand
father Indeed It was Grandpapa Grey
who had worked so diligently nil spring
in tho flower garden In order thnt there
might be nn abundance of flowers for
the annual occasion in which be was so
deeply Interested
Youll be able to cut two bushel
baskets full of flowers he said to
Willie and Mnhpl on the evening before
Decoration Day Dont spare n rose nor
n pink nor any Und of blossom that
will add to the beauty of the tloral
pieces Ill assist In weaving the
wreaths nnd diamonds and crosses
Willie nod Mnbcl tool the sensors nnd
hastened to the garden to gather the
bushel baskels full of flowers After they
bad worked a llttlo while Willie grew
tired of the task set him and declared
that he thought It n foolish custom to
make such n ass over the dead soldiers
And Its n pity Grandpapa will work
so hurl to get n garden full of flue
flowers Just to have them nil cut down
for Decoration Day If I had worked as
IK has done since the first day of spring
Id not give up tho results of my toll
you may be sure
Well there arc runny other ways the
flowers might he used said Mabel
Next Friday Is my birthday nnd
tberell not bo a flower left to decorate
tho rooms nnd tables for my party Its
always fco Grnndpiipn managed to have
tho finest ffowcrgnrden Irt town nud
Just ns It begins to look beautiful
Percy dotting his hot as he bowed re
spcctfully to the woman In the chair
But may we get a drink of water hero
My sister and I have quite a Mule walk
befoio us nnd ore both thirsty
Certainly my children smiled the
sick woman Will you come lu and
sit down while my son sets the water for
you Then turning to tho boy ehc said
PIcnc Freddy get two cups of wutii
for the little strangers
Percy and Mercy thanked the good wo
man for the Invitation to sit In the room
and found some chairs plnln rude
wooden things Are you 111 r nsUed

But Im very very much butter now I

Teddy and the StorK
EDDYS nurse took him to the
700 to see the nnlumK Teddy
wall seven Fears old amid was un
s only child a fact which Teddy
often deplored So often he
wished and wished that he had a
sister or a brother But so far his
wlahch bad never been realized Tiring
of the monkeys the elephants and all the
other animals which children usually und
so Interesting Teddy begged to bo taken
to the Bird House as he called the
aviary lie had heard hIs uncle Tom tell
his father that the stork had brought
a baby to his rlends the Smiths living
next door This news had conic to Toddy
I dy that very morning while bls Uncle
I Tom was making u short business call on
Teddys papa And Teddy had thought
and thought about It all the forenoon and
when after luncheon nurse bad asked If
be wished to go to the zoo that afternoon
bo said Yes Nurse please And to
himself ho said Ill have nurse take me
to the bird house and Ill whisper to the
old stork that Ive seen there to bring
me a baby sister Id rather have a sin
ter than a brother for Im boy enough
for our family or so nmmma says
So after a very short visit to the ani
mals Teddy begged to go to the bird
house and of course nurse led him
thither Its n funny taste that some
kids has the nurse mentally observed
Now Id rather watch one monkey than
a thousand birds theyre such little cut
ups But birds And the nurse
I turned up her nose contemptuously But
an Teddy wns master she obeyed and
oon they were watching nil sorts of
birds and feathered creatures
Pretty soon Teddy found the stork 1
All hero were several of them together I
and Teddy smiled happily He had
never seen but one stork there before and
now he counted live Ah be had n now
Idea I lie would nsk each of tho live
storks to fetch u baby slater And out
of the live nt least one would respond
So creeping close to the wire netting
which him from the birds
separated ho I
whispered pry loudly addressing Ii very
tall stork who was quite near to him and
who was standing on one foot looking
about as grimly as n sago Please old

One week Inter wo were again engaged
In fierce conflict On entering tho field
my comrade was pale and Bald to me
Brother I feel that tomorrow youll have
another mnn walking at your right His
voice wns firm but low and full of feeling
though no fear caused It to quaver In
ruin I tried to cheer him up See how
fortunate we were to escape without
hnrm In the battle of last week I ex
plained Ah he answered calmly but
there were others hundreds of them
who fell It Is ns much our duty to dlo
as It Is the other man Why should we
congratulate ourselves on living when
flo many of our comrades hAil to perish 1
If so many thousands of men must dlo
woll why should not I bo cue of them
But wo must nil pray for life I In
sisted Thero la homo there arc father

from the intenseness of tho boor 1
glanced nt my comrade his eyes shone
with unusual brilliance his cheek Will
tho color of ashes My duty as well as
nnotherR I heard him say Just the mo
ment before the order rang out Flro 1
In the hour that followed nil thought
of companions watt driven from the mind
Like Infuriated demons wo fired null re
ceived fire Slaughter was everywhere
The ground under our feet sons red with
wnrm life blood I won blinded to every
thing about me Tho very sun seemed to
shed blackness The roar of the cannon
the cries of the wounded and dying oh
my children never will I forget them
As the night set In tho battle was de
cided The boys In blue bad won the
victory Then I began to look for my
comrade He was nowhere to be seen I
walked over the field Soon I came upon
him lying fnce turned to the stars a
smile on his white face My duty ns
well nn anothers went through my mind
And he had performed his part of the
sacrifice anti perhaps another man lived
through his death
Grandpapas voice sank low and tears
glistened on his eyelashes He paused In
winding n wreath pressing u white rose
against his breast Flint comrade In
war was by beloved brother I James he
snld softly And his grave Is unknown
Among the many lying In unmarked
graves In our Military Cemetery n milL
from our town lies that dear boy who a
short hour before his death declared that
It was his duty as well nn anothers to
die for his country
Instantly Willie and Mabel were ai
