Call up memory
Telephone back to boyhood days
if you would brush away the dark
shadow of business cares from your
brow for a moment
Turn the pages backward Dont
stop to pine over one that might have
been blurred with a sad incident
turn them swiftly and eagerly until
the brilliant pages of boyhood are
reacheda lad of ten twelve or pos
sibly fourteen summers Draw the
scenes of your old home close into
your imagination until within an
hour you have lived a whole year
back yonder where life was sunshine
and roses
The scene is laid in the big red hills
where the chestnuts swing in hauhty
defiance high up in the topmost
boughs of the tall tall trees Where
the old colonial fence rows are mark
ed with long straight rows of chin
kapin groves I
A boy bounds out of bed as the first
rays of daylight plays across an I
October sky and with happy delight
hails the first white frosty morning
of the season In the long hallway he
is fondly greeted by a faithful old dog
which follows him closely through the
kitchen wagging its tail in happy
anticipation of the good times coming
Here the boy engages 40 Old Mammy
in a sharp argument comes out mas I
ter of the situation by filling his
pockets with fresh sweet biscuits
and warm crip doughnuts then he
makes his way into the back yard I
amid familiar shouts of negro dialect I
and broken sentences of reproof
Bootless and barelegged he braves
the brisk morning air and brushes
aside the frost from the long grasses
with his brown feet Down through
the old apple orchard he flies away
until out of sight of Old Mamy
he stops to divide lunch with the dog
and warm his toes in the sandy bed
where the Calves have lain
The foliage of the apple trees is
I sparkling with a thousand bright em
eralds Jack Frosts diamonds of an
October daybreak and here and there
a big red applemellow sweet and
juicy hangs temptingly just out of
ordinary reach
But this boy is not hunting apples
Provided with a cotton picker bag
which wiiigs from his shoulder and
ilmcbl drags upon the ground he
I eaps the fence at a ingle bound and
hurries toward a grove of trees in the
woods pasture
I Chinkapins My oh Did you ev
er see tile like HP gives oath tree a
heavy shaking and the ground is cov
I ered with the beautiful black spark
ling nuts Thats line Now never
mind the burs they wont stick this
boys feet Oh no He rakes and
picks up and blows the trash and
leaves from every handful Now and
then he catches up the cotton pick
ers old bag in both hands and sizes
up the contents Each time his face
grows brighter Well now Thats
most of em Hell leave the balance
to the pigs
But hold Theres some beauties
sure Goes back pulls a limb down
and adds a few more to his store He
starts again but not without looking
back several times in anticipation of
another early visit there
Cold No no This boys heart is
too warm in the rich wine of life to
shiver in the frost However as he
turns his bright face toward the dear
old home and sees the dark blue
smoke curling trout the chimneys
as the delicious flavor of the morn
ings meal is borne to him on the fad
ing sweetness of the melting frosty
he quickens his footstep
A few minutes later the scene is
around the family board Mamma has
guessed 500 Papa 850 Grandma 1000
Sister cut it down to 300 but Grand I
pa raised it to not less than 2000 I
Ah grandpa youve been to the
trees I guess I
Yes my son many many times
when I was a boy like you I
