WARNING AGAINST DIS EASE. AH disease may be said to be pre ventable. Modern science has dis covered this and more many dis eases formerly thought incarible may be cured if taken in time and proper ly treated. Of no disease is this more true than of tuberculosis, the dreaded disease which has desolated so many bomes throughout the length and breadth of this fair land. The realiz ation of this fact has prompted the crusade which is now being waged in almost every part of the country against the further spread of tubercu losis, the end being attained by object lessons and lectures showing the causes of the disease and how it may foe cured or prevented. Brownsville will have the benefit of this great -educational work in behalf of human ity next week, thanks to the benevo lence and progressiveness of her phy sicians, druggists and business men. It will be a great opportunity and all should avail themselves of it without fail. The Corpus Christi Herald of re cent date tells the story of a man liv ing in that city who has supported a wife and children "decently" on 15 a week and paid debts aggregating $300. The tale does not begin "once upon a time" either, but it is doubt less safe to assume that it occurred "before the Merry Widow hat and di reotoire gowns and afternoon bridge "became necessary to complete the sum of feminine happiness. An Astonished Editor. The editor stood at the pearly gates And. gazed at the passing throng, And read the caprice of the fickle Fates As they pushed and hurried along. And dazed, he gazed. Open-mouthed, amazed! Thinking surely St. Peter was wrong. For he saw before him the man whom ho Had scored to a finish below. And this same man pranced with a motion free. As he pinned on his new halo -And fastened it down With a glittering crown And a diamond studded bow. And there was a man he'd declared to be A villainous, thieving chap. And he was astonished and jarred to see Him enter, nor stop to rap. i very much, fear,". He remarked, "that here They've not followed the 'Weekly Kerslap; "For to me. it is clear that he's made a mistake. And I view the result with alarm. And my duty is plainly correction to make Before he's done actual harm." So he made a slide For St. Peter's side And punched him a punch on the arm. ""Hold on, Pete," he said, in an earn est tone, As he jabbed him and punched him well; If you make a mistake the fault is ' your own, And I d better relieve you a spell; For you're fifilling the sky With some people that. I Don't approve," said the Saint: . ""Go to hell." And just then the editor's wife awoke ; And the editor's" wife was mad, As she poked her husband a vicious Toke. -' And shoUte"d: "Quit punching me, dad!" And he opened his eyes . In wildest surprise -At the horrible dream he'd had. Denver Timesr Nurture your mind with great Thoughts- to believe in the heroic makes-heroes. Disraeli.

She was ready forleep, and she lay on my arm, In her little frilled cap so fine. With her golden hair falling out at ktne edge, Like a circle of moonshine: And I hummed the old tune of "Ban bury Cross," And "Three Men Who Put Out to Sea," When she sleepily said, as she closed her blue eyes, "Papa, fot would you take for me?" And I answered, "A dollar, dear little heart," And she slept, baby, weary with play, But I held her warm in my love strong arms. And I rocked her and rocker away; Oh, the dollar meant all the world to me. The land, and the sea. and the sky, The lowest depths of the lowest place' The highest of all that's high. All the cities, with streets and pal aces. With their pictures and stores of art, - . I would not. take for one low sort . throb Of my little one's loving heart, Nor all the gold that was ever found In the busy. wealth-finding nast. Would I take for one smile of my darling's face. Did I know it must be the last. So I rocked my baby, and rocked away. And I felt such a sweet content, -For the words of the song expressed more to me Than they ever before had meant, And the night crept on and I slept, and dreamed Of things far too gladsome to be, And I wakened with lips saying close to my ear. "Papa, fot would you take for me?" One morning at dawn, my babe was as white . As the pillow on which she lay, For the angels came in the dark mid-' night And bore my darling away. And I bowed my head and thought of those Who dwell far over the sea, who hear not the voice of the blessed Christ, "Let the little ones come to Me." So I laid my baby to rest aT last In the church yard so -lonely and cold. But I know that she now is with God on high. And is walking the streets of gold. So I gave my wealth that all might hear -The words that so comforted me. For so many are the hearts that are weary and sad, Yonder over the restless sea. Who hear not the voice of the blessed Christ "Let the little ones come to Me." Eugene Field The above poem is one of Eugene Field's most beautiful tributes to the "wee one he. loved so well. It was written several years before the poet's death, which occurred in Chi--cago early in the nineties. Foi'-Sale.
