Soap and towels and tooth brushes
And stogies and tobaccy?
Every one that ls'nt game
To go to war and fight,
And would ruther stay at home
And read their magazines at night,
t Had ort to take a tumble
Bj To the pleasure It provides.
And let a little sympathy
Uit underneath their bides,
I And loosen up and send a little
O' their cheer to camp,
Where it's cold and bleak and dreary
And uncomfortable and damp.
And where men with hearts as big
Ab only West Virginians grow
Are waltlu' fer the order
Vrnm tinoilnnorloru fur In en
And Rive their lives fer country
Anil fer folks like me ami you.
And It seems to me a mlslity.
Mighty, little thing ter do,
For you and me to take em
Out some papers and tobaccy.
And help ter cheer 'em up
And entertain 'em some Ily Cracky!

Sec. Snow Secures Novel
Musical Number for
State Convention.
PAUKJ2R8BUUG, W. Va., April 17.?
Walter A. Snow, general secretary of'
I Be West Virginia Sunday School Association.
which will hold its Thirtyfifth
annual convention in Parkersburg
May S. 9. 10, In securing attractions tor
the groat gathering of Sunday scitooi
workers, has been exceedingly successlul
and In doing so he has attempted to
emphasize the music as one of the
strong features of the convention. That
lie has succeeded in securing some of
_ the best attractions possible in this
connection is shown in the fact that
he has engaged 1'r. Adam Geibcl ami
Prof. Hall, of Philadelphia, to have
charge of the music throughout the
convention.
These two ntcn of wide reputation
will appear in West Virginia for the
first time, and will introduce a feature !
during the convention that 1ms never
before been witnessed in the state. Dr. I
Geibel, who is a well-known hymn 1
writer and has composed a number of
popular secular pieces ot music, is j
blind, but on the second night of the i
convention will compose a hymn impromptu
in the presence of the audi-!
unco.
He will explain the principles in-:
volved in the composition of music, j
anil then will ask some person In the
audience to name words of a common I
and well known church hymn. He i
will then proceed to write new music 1
J to fit the old words. He dictates while |
Prof. Hall writes, dictating soprano, [
alto and so on until the end of the j
v erse and does the same as to the bus-* i
and tenor, immediately upon comple- \
Mr tion of the dictation Prof. Hatt goes |
through, after which I)r. Gcibel sings ;
it and teaches it to the convention.
Another great musical feature of
I: the convention will be the Institute!
Glee club of the West Virginia Col* j
lcgiate Institute, at Industrial, W. Va., :
colored singers, who will render a program
of negro folk songs that Is ex- :
pected to be one of the most enjoyable:
featut es on the entire convention pro
gram.

Why Do You Worry?
Why should any one worry? To
worry shortens life. Like anger. It
reacts anil poisons the system. The !
federal health service has taken worry j
so seriously that It has issued u bulletin
warning the American people j
against the danger of worrying and the
blessing that comes to tho?.e who are i
active members of the glud-liuud so- j
ciety.
Logical.
A Roumanian ?cienrtst says that old i
age Is duo sola); to a decrease In the
amount of water in the human system.
That sounds reasonable. Wore you
over acquainted with a fish who filed
of old age?
