"Yes," was the plaint of the second bard; "for instance, there goes Jung Jangles. No sooner did he sell that series of soap limericks than he had his hair cut and exhibited his meal ticket with great vanity." The Occult Refusal. With ferlinps of sreat perturbation. With heart that was all of a quake. He thought to the lady's location The vow that he wanted to make— And then with a mental vibration She gave him the shake. The Beautiful Snow Fall of Poetry. Deferentially the poet approaches the callous editor, who sits surround ed by manuscripts, with numberless sheets of copy on the floor, also. "I have here," says the poet, "a little effort I have just dashed oft on 'The Beautiful Snow.' " "Don't want it," growls the callous editor, pausing In his work of signing vouchers. "What's the matter? Beautiful Snow poems are seasonable, aren't they?" "Yep; but 1 don't want any." "Got cold feet, haven't you?" asks the poet, nerved by desperation. "You bet," says the callous editor. Indicating the manuscript on the floor. "All of that Is parodies on the 'Beautiful Snow.' '' The Problem. We see the man holding his head as though in deep thought. "What is on your mind?" we ask. "I have Just spent an hour looking for post cards to send, in order to avoid writing letters which would have taken 20 minutes of my time," he explains. Passing on, we continue our medi tative walk.

A. HAYES FOR WINTER SUPPER TABLE Preserve*» Cherries One of the Best and Most Delicious of Put Up Lunches. There is an ancient superstition that cherries and milk are a combination that will insure speedy death. There fore small boys and girls have been tortured with a most terrible uncer tainty when, surreptitiously, they have gorged themselves with the robin's perquisite or the later coming choke cherries, and have then had bread and milk presented to them as their sole choice of evening meal. From a feel ing of wish-I-dared to what-do-I-care, they have proceeded to gather the fruit of hidden branches, possessed with that same eerie uncertainty about the future which a boy may have when he courts death with a giant firecracker. Mothers have suffered from frightful apprehensions in cher ry time. Preserved cherries are amongst the most delicious of all the put-up fruits and are as serviceable for pies and puddings as any thare are, if one wishes to extend the cherry flavor in this way. The cooked cherry is de licious, and considerably less sugar is required for it than for preserves. To candy cherries requires a good deal more care than most domestic man agers can take, but some think It worth while, since the produce has more flavor than those that are ar ticles of merchandise. To preserve cherries a level meas ure of sugar to a heaping measure of cherries is a reliable portion. Twenty to thirty minutes is about the time required for cooking them. The old fashioned long cooking was not neces sary and deprived them of their beau tiful color. Cook and skim the sugar first before adding the cherries slow ly. SOUTH SEA TRAMPS' WHARF Strange Sights That May Be Seen on the Old Melgg Pier In San Francisco. "When old Henry Meigg built the long pier that juts out from the foot of Telegraph Hill in San Francisco," remarked the Californian, "he proba bly didn't guess that it was destined to become the most picturesque wharf in the country. He intended it to ac commodate his own line of steamer^, but in later years he settled in Peru and the wharf fell into other hands. "While retaining his name, it be gan to take on a peculiar character. It is nearer to the Golden Gate than any other pier in San Francisco har bor, and the South Sea tramps found it convenient to dock there. Their patronage became so important that in time it was entirely given over to them and to the other rovers of the sea that drift into San Francisco from the ports of nil the world. ''And so it is that you can go down to Meigg's Wharf any afternoon, when the trade wind Is blowing from the Pacific, and watch brown Kanaka sailors loafing on the decks of boats that reek of cocoanut oil and strange spice odors. And you can see copra being unloaded, and 'shell' and other products of Polynesia. Or you may chance to find an old-fashioned square rigger in port that has been three months or more coming from New York, by way of the Horn. These boats have no schedules. No one knows when they will drift in through the Golden Gate and pause for a short while under the lee of Tele graph Hin. ''Meigg's W'harf also has the repu tation of being the starting point for filibustering expeditions to the Latin American republics, and is always closely watched for smugglers." Crcsm Raspberry Pie. Line a pie dish with rich puff paste, and fill with a quart of raspberries sweetened to taste. Cover with pastry, but do not press this down at the edges. While it is cooking heat a small teacupful of milk, with a pinch of soda in it, and stir into it half a teaspoonful of corn flour which has been previously wet with a little cold milk; add one tablespoonful of white powdered sugar, and cook for three mintues. Pour the mixture into a small basin, and beat in the frothed whites of two eggs; whip to a cream and let it get cold. When the pie is taken fro mt.he oven lift the top crust and pour in the cream you have made; replace the crust and set aside to cool. Sprinkle a little sugar over the top before serving.
