ON SATURDAY MORNING
B> CLARA E. ATWOOD
Oh, when I go to grandma's house,
To grandma's house, my grandma's house,
Oli, when I go to grandma's house
At te i o.i Saturday morning,-
I take my bag with strings of blue,
Filled with thread of every hue,
And needle and scissors and thimble, too,
To grandma's Saturday morning,
I walk along such a tovely lane,
A flowery lane, with Mullv Jane,
When I go to grandma's, and it doesn't rain,
At ten on Saturday BOrun g.
And we see little burune* with cunning pink noses,
And hedges all covered with lovely wild roses.
Oh, daisies and buttercups and all kinds of posies
Are there on Saturday morning.
My grandma's house b white and clean,
With window sash and blinds of green,
Just the loveliest place I \ c ever seen
Is grandma's on Saturday morning!
Then when I get to grandma's house
I steal up quiet, just like a mouse,
And she says, "Who's coming to my white house
This sunny Saturday morning;-"
Then she gives me a kiss and a drink of milk,
Of creamy milk, of Molly Cow's milk,
That came from a mooley with skin like silk
So ear y that very morning.
And uiy grandma gives me some calico gay,
Pink and white and gleen and gray,
And I go down under tie trees to play
At grandma's Saturday morning.
And I take my little spools of thread
And my calico, blue and white and red,
For I'm making a quilt for grandma's bed
At her house on Saturday morning.
Oh, I have a beau-tiful tiue all day!
I feed the pigs and I ride ou the hay,
And at night, when I say my prayers, I say,
"Keep me safe till next Saturday morning."

Last Saturday morning about tsn
o'clock the old gentleman sank into a
deep slumber from which he never
awakened again on earth, but at 6
o'clock Sunday morning peacefully
passed into the world beyond. He was
a great and grand old man and »'«H
known all over this part of the country
as he had lived here over thirteen
When he celebrated his 96th birth
day, the fouth of last May, he expressed
a wish, inwhich all his friends heartily
joined, that he might live to see a hun
dred years roll over his head; but like
the patriarch Moses he was not allowed
to cross over into the promised lam' as
his work on earth was finished and the
reward already awaiting him at the
I White Throne over yonder. He had al
! ways been a very etrong and healthy
man and four year* of forced idleness
or worse, perhaps confinement to the
bed the gwater part of the time, would
not have passed very pleasantly for him.
Mr. LeClair, in his day, was a great
walker and, even in the last years of
! his life, he has frequently walked ten
lor fifteen miles in a day. Five year*
ago this fall he walked to Clearbrook
to see a friend and came back the same
He was born in the year 1812 in a
small village upper Canada. His par
ents were of French Canadian decent

, j father lived a hunded and eight years,
| and the mother nearly reached the cen

t When a boy he was taught the shoe-

' career, was never estranged from it
'or any long period His patron" in
L/nden will b» loath to wear the articles
which he hu mended for them but will
keep them as souvineers of the old
gentleman's fine workmanship and to
keep his memory green. In the shop
he did most of his studying and he was
a great student for, altho he never went
to school a day in his life, he read both
Greek and Latin.
At the age of twentyone he came to
America and soon after waa converted
from the Catholic faith to Protestantism.
About 1645 be entered the Methodist
Church and joined the famous old Black
Hiver Conference which later merged
into the Northern New York Conference
of which he waa a member up to bis
In 1845 he was married to Miss Hor
tensis L. Aubrey of Watertown N. V.,
but death soon claimed his helpmate
and joy was turned to sorrow.
In 1847 he married Miss Martha
Caughlan at Watertown and seven
children—six girla and one boy—came
to brighten their borne. The son,
Franklin LeClair, Uvea at Malone N.Y.
t-rocter Pierce, now of Maple Falls Wn.
married Maliuda M. LeClair but ahe
died about fourteen years ago leaving
an only daughter, Myrtle, who is living
with her father at Maple Falls. Mrs.
John Nelson of Auburn N. Y. is the on
ly daughter living.
In 1867 his second helpmate was call
ed away as the first and again his lot
seemed very sad; however in 1871 he
was wedded at Col con N. Y. to Miss
Matilda Williams, who has ever been a
close companion and sympathising
friend and especially so in the evening
of his life. Two children came to bless
the union but only tl c daughter, Mrs.
Delmer Johnaon of Seward Alaska, is
