Corn is king now, and what a strong,
calm, virtuous king It Is? The solidity

other object. It represents plenty,
richness, honest Industry and whole

apples, the potatoes all rally about It
and give it honor and praise.
So, thero Is a sentiment to this glor
ious affair. It celebrates tho purity,
prosperity and plenty of tho home. It
Is the happy fields of summer brought
Into winter, to make us all glad and
warm nnd happy.
Of course, It will do that to every
man and woman whose henrts are in
the right place and who behold God's
bounty In the golden corn.
