(The following poem, is from an old scrap book, the property of Mr. Cary W. Townsend, and was sent to The Journal by Mr. Townsend. who has been interested in the poems which have appeared on this page, in connection with the Doll and Toy fund of the St. Nicholas Girls. Mr. Townsend has in his books, of which he has several, a most interesting col lection, not only of verse, but of ar ticles and stories, which time has rendered invaluable, many of them being out of print:) Window-wishers, window-wishers, ev erywhere we go. In front of every shop and store they're standing in a row. Some are old and some are young, sober ones and gay. Drifting in a wishing--dream, as every mortal may. Mothers with their hearts of love are gazing at the toys. Wishing for the gifts to glad their precious girls and boys; Women, women, everywhere sweet hearts, sisters, wives Wishing- for the joys they know would lift thear patient lives. Oh, that every empty hand might have Its fill of gold. And every gift the wishers ask be theirs to have and hold; And wreathed with every happy dream n answer would be blent Till all the hungry hearts might breathe the blessed word 'Con tent.' 'Tis good the hapless ones of earth who feel Dame Fortune's frown. May yet a-window -wishing go through all the streets In town; For earth still holds its meed of . gold, despite Its dark alloy, So long as we may dream of things to fill the heart with joy. And Iafe's a window-wishing play, since all our fleeting years We're gating at the "great beyond," and wishing through our tears, But "over there" each thirsting rose is kissed with blissful dew. And every wish will be fulfilled and all our dreams come true. Anonymous. FOR MISS LUCY MILTON -OF MARIANNA. Since her arrival In the city Miss Lucy Milton of Marianna, as the guest of her aunt.

No one can offer yon "bulk coffee" that is a satisfactory sub stitute f orFrench Market Coffee. In the first place, the blend of coffees that produce that rich, aromatic flavor peculiar to the genuine French Market Coffee is a secret of the French Mar ket Mills.

THE FRIENDLESS TOYS. (The following poem appeared in The Journal of November 14th, and is republished by request:) The toys were talking. I heard them J say: How we wish that we could go out to play. Big Sister and Brother have quite forgot How much they loved us. Is it not A shame that some ltttle girl or boy Could not have you or me for a Christ mas toy?" The pretty French Doll in her satin gown, The Teddy Bear and the funny clown. Were lying there on the nursery floor. They were not wanted any more. I think that they are still lying there, Toys and toys, on table and chair. And Big Sister and Brother have gone away And there aren't any children Lt to play, With all the lovely, lovely toys, That make happy some girls and boys. The St Nicholas Girl would like to know. If the toys will adopt someone else. If so If the Teddy Bear and the Funny Clown The pretty French Doll in the satin gown, Would like to make happy some girls and boys, Just telephone the St. Nicholas Girl At 616, and with magic twirl, All of the friendless Christmas toys. Shall play with some friendly girls and boys. Celia Myrover 'Robinson. MRS. GILLMORE'S STORY IN CURRENT MAGAZINE.

MISS JEAN GORDON IN MONTGOMERY. j.ne .Montgomery Advertiser of Wednesday contained the following nouce or ine appearance of Miss Jean Gordon, in that city: If all suffragettes possessed the charming personality, the sweet wo manly presence and the wonderful in tellect, with which Miss Jean Gordon impressed her audience at the Ex change hotel Tuesday afternoon, no one would even wish to contradict her emphasized statement that "Woman Suffrage is here! Whether you want it or not, it has won." Dr. Mac Caslin's Introduction of Miss Gordon was not only & beauti ful tribute to her, but to the splendid womanhood of America. The fact that Governor O'Neal's wife and daughter, Miss Olivia O'Neal, were present, suggested to one of the Equal Suffrage Association leaders that Miss Gordon's interview with the governor had entirely converted him. There were several gentlemen pres ent: among them: Colonel Mou'lthrop, of Mobile; Mr. Stafford Betty, Dr. B. C. Erhenreich, together with three gray-haired veterans, who when asked if they were present through love of the cause or curiosity, slowly winked one eye, and whispered: "Love of the ladies, God bless 'em." Miss Gordon says that the women are going after men like Congressman Heflin who was insulting In his atti tude toward the seven women who She Will Always Appreciate What You Find In This List Toilet Water Imported and Domestic.

President Wilson, who is ever courteous, assured the committee that it was out of his power to recommend . his personal views, but only those points approved of by the democratic party. - "Then to whom can women come for representation?" he was asked. "Well I think the women are repre senting themselves pretty well," he laughingly replied. So to woman there is no court of appeals, regardless of the fact that she is held responsible for her misdeeds and her taxes. Miss Gordon continued: "Women, did you know that you had not always had a soul, and that it was only accorded you by a majority of one vote? Then after a few hundred years it was decided that you had a right to your bodies, and a law was passed prohibiting a man to beat his wife with a stick larger than his thumb. Then finally through much strenuous efforts she was given a right to her own property and now the bal lot. It is here; will you take it by state's rights or have It put upon you by the National Government? "They tell you it will break up the home.
