A Mornl.ig Call.
When she spied him coming
She wore a kerchief round her head
Her papered curls to hide.
The flounces on her skirts were torn,
Her slippers were untied.
Her jackets wanted buttons, and
'Twas not exactly clean,
And througn her worn-out sleeves quite plain
Her elDows could be seen.
When she received him.
Upon her brow her fluffy hair
Like tangled sunshine lay.
Her pretty Mother Hubbard gown
Was rich in ribbons gay.
Her little shoes were decked with bows,
Some meadow flowers clung
>"ear her fair throat and from her side
A small scent bottle hung.
And It's a sure thing.
That never yet for conjurer
Did quicker change befall
Than that young man evoked who come
To make a morning cull.
Here's a beautiful story of "the tribes
of the wandering feet.'"
A band of weary Indians, driven by
their foes from place to p'.aee, finally
crossed a broad river and setting up
their tepees, exclaimed, "Alabama."
The meaning of the word in the Indian
tongue is ''Here we rest."' And thus
a state was named.
The sequel we know.
Where these aborigines expected to
Und rest and a home, they found only
enemies and the grave.
So of us all—
Humanity, driven hither any yon.
looks forward to the day when 11 shall
cross the broad river of Trouble and,
setting ut> its pilgrim staff and say to
itself, "Alabama: Here we rest."
Anil that day never comes.
You say to yourself in the early day-'
there must be toil and sacrifice until
the foothold is gained, until the business
is established, until the income is gain
ed. litttwr, you have passed that goal.
Still you strive and save. You discov
er that the foothold must be retained,
the business boomed, the income in
creased to increasing needs. Place and
position secured, a great effort must be
made to hold place and position. There
is no Alabama in a strenuous life.
You have said to your self: The
children are small. There must be pro
vision for them. Someday they will
grow upand leavethe family. When they
are able to take care of themselves then
a well earned season of repose shall be
enjoyed. Well. The children have
grown up. You have advanced the
date of your day of rest. The children
must be educated. Toil and economy
is necessary. When the children are
educated and murried then we can say
to ourselves, ''Here we rest." Well
The children are married. Then they
must be launched in business, etc.. etc.
If the children are taking care of
themselves there are parents or dear
friends, or the worthy cause —
And so we go on, slaving, saving,
walking the dusty highway, bearing
our bundle upon us until some day we
drop it by the side of an open grave.
Is it not better so?
We need stimulus and incentive.
Without something to live for, work
for and die for, life would be an insip
id and dull commonplace. Besides—
The burden steadies the feet and
keeps erect the moral backbone.
When your work is done, then and
not until then, can you say to your soul,
"Alabama.'' And who that is able to
work wants to admit his work is done
Rather would you not prefer that epi
taph which is written on the Hat
stone over the grave of the soldier of
Padua: ''Here He Who Never Rested,
Rests."—Seattle Star.
What Women Can Do.
There are lots of things a woman can
do that a man can not.
A woman can hold more clothes-pins
in her mouth and look through a knot
hole iv the fence at the same time. She
can come to a conclusion without the
slightest trouble of reasoning on it and
no sane man can do that. Six of them
can talk at once and get along tirst-rate
and no Iwo men can do that' She can
safely stick fifty pins iv her dress while
he is getting one under his thumb-nail.
She can button her shoes standing up
with both feet ou the floor but he can't.
She is as cool as a cucumber in a half
dozen tight drasses and skirts while a
man will sweat and fume and growl in
one loose shirt. Can talk as sweet as
peaches and cream to the woman she
hates while two men would be punching
each other's heads before they had
exchanged ten words. She can throw a
stone with a cur;.\e that would be a for
tune to a baseball pitcher. She can
MJI "No" an.' sUok to it tor a time. She
can also say "No" in such alow voice
that it means "Yea." She can sharpen
a lead pencil, it you give her plenty of
time and plenty of pencils, She can
pass a display window of a dry goods
stOi-e without I tripling, if she is run
DlttfJ to catch a train She can dance
all night In si pair of sheet two aises too
small for her and enjoy eyery minute
of the time. She can appreciate a kiss
from her husband seventy-ttve jrean
after the marriage oermaony Is perform
ed. She can go to chunh, and after
wards tell you what every wosaanin
tho congregation had on. and. in some
rare instances, can give you a faint idea
of what the text was. Bheoan walk
half the night with a colicky baby In
her arras, without once expressing the
desire of murdering the infant. She
can go to the theater every evening, and
the matinee on Wednesday und Batur
day, and still possets safflolent strength
to attend a Sunday evening sacred con
cert. She can—but what's the U»eJ A
woman can do anything and every
thing and do it well. She can do more
in a minute than a man can in an hour,
and do it bettor, she can make the al
leged lords of creation bow down to her
own sweet will, and they will never
know of it. She can drive a man crazy
for twenty-four hours and then bring
him to paradise In two seconds, by .-im
ply tickling him under the chin, and
there does not live a mortal son of
Adam's misery who can do it.
Marry In Haste and Repent at
A very young couple of Coon Rapids,
lowa, were married at Audubon, lowa,
a few days ago, and the squire who was
called upon to tie the knot gave the fol
lowing address to the groom, as report
ed by the Advocate:
''Nine-tenths of the unhappy mar
riages are the results of green human
calves being allowed to run at large in
society pastures without any yokes on
them. They marry and have mustaches:
vhey are fathers of twins before the; are
proprietors of two pair of pants, and the
little girls they marry are old women
before they are thirty. Occasionally
one of these marriages turn out alright
but it is a clear ease of luck.
"If there was a law against young
galoots marrying before they have out
their wisdom teeth, we suppose these
little roosters would evade it in some
way; but there ought to hi a sentiment
against it. It is time enough for these
bantams to find a pallet when they
have raised enough to buy a bundle oi
lath to build a hen hou-e.
"They see a girl look cunuing and
they begin to spark real spry.and before
they are aware of the sanctity of the
marriage relations they are hitched for
life; before they own a cook stove or
liedstead they have to get up in the
mi.idle of the night and go fora doctor,
so frightened that they run themselves
out af breath anil abuse the doctor be
cause he does not run too, and when the
doctor arrives there is not linen in the
house to wrap the baby in."
Tho Origin of Love.
The poetical account that is given
from Aristophanes of the origin of love
explains the old idea which still vague
ly (survives that every soul has some
whe'u its particular mate, and explains
also the tribulations that occur in (hid
ing it. According to this poet philoso
pher there were once throe ecxes, de
scended respectively from the sun,
earth and moon, and each had a duality
of heads, arms and legs. But the beings
so endowed were round, and revolved
about with the facility of a Fourth of
July fire wheel.
In the process of time they grew so
tierce and powerful that Zeus was put
to his wits' ends to know what to do
with them as they attempted at one
time to storm heaven and over power
even the gods. He did not wish to de
stroy them outright; "so he directed
Appollo to cut each one of them in two
which was done, and thus the number
ofbuman beings was doubled. Each
of these half being* now continually
wandered about seeking its other half. j
When they found each other their on
ly desire was to be reunited by Vulcan i
and never to be parted again. And this
longing and striving after union— that
is what is meant by the name of love."
As the separations that necessitate
this union were made in heaven, wo can
now we why all perfect matches are
supposed to be ordained there. The
ill assorted and irritable ones are those
that spring up without knowledge and
in a haphazard fashion, whereby two
halves that never bslonjpd together arc
unequally yokej.
