WILL I HAVE A CHANCE?
When Uncle Walt no longer sings,
hangs up for aye his lyre, and rust
has left its silver strings as Nineveh
and Tyre; when sinks in western skies
his sun, and he puts his bow to rest on
laurels he has won, will I, then, have
a show? God grant him many years
to go! but tempus fugit still, it's fu
gited, you know perhaps it always
will. . But soon must come the twilight
shade for time doth call no halt the
old gent with his gleaming blade is
sneaking up on Walt. We usefl to hear
the roundelay of merry village chimes
at eventide, day after day, in all his
"Rippling Rhymes;" the full-voiced
sweetness of the thrush, the trill from
linnet's throat but now, methinks,
there is a hush, a subtle sadder note.
Rheumatic germs now haunt his lair.
and who can hope to sing a cheerful,
optomistic air, with one foot in n
sling? And so, per chance, if fates
decree the Homer of the West shall
hang upon a willow tree his harp and
take a rest-; if germs keep vigil at his
door, with crude St. Vitus , dance
should Walt decide to rhyme no more
will I then have a chance ? J. Har
vey Burgess.

GENTLE CORRECTION
ttpULSIFETt seems mighty touchy,"
MT observed the retired merchant
"He was talking to me this morning
and shooting holes throngh the king's
English In his usual reckless way. 1
ailed bis attention to a few of bis
grammatical errors.
Instead of being
grateful he shook
bis fist tinder my
nose, and said that
for three sous be
would posh my
face throngh the
back of my bead.-1
can't understand
that sort of con
duct I'd thank any
man who won Id
correct me when I
make errors In my
speech."
"In a born you
would," commented the hotelkeeper.
"You think yon put np a fine line of
English when you are talking. You
re satisfied you never make any bad
breaks, so feel safe In saying you
would welcome criticism, but If some
harp who Is wise to all the fancy
curves of the language came along,
nd showed you where you get off, you
wouldn't wring his hand In an ecstasy
of gratitude. No, doggone It, you
would climb on his person and discolor
one of his eyes.
"If there's any man makes me tired
and sore, It's the one who calls me
down when I am speaking a piece, and
tells me I nm making Llndlcy Murray
roll over In his grave. I don't mind If
there ore only two of us present at the
time, but when there are Innocent by
standers around I get all worked un
and insist upon a hand to hand con
flict. No good sport would do such a
thing. If you don't like the way I
talk, you can pass up this hotel when
makinc your dully rounds. If you
must hand me a package of criticism
or admonition, send It by mall. Then
I can read It In the privacy of my own
bed room, and there won't be anybody
around to ralpe a horse laugh.
"My education was sadly neglected
when I was young. I went to school
only a few months and everything I
learned was wrong, for the teacher
was fanner who took np educational
Work as a recreation when the weather
presented him from cultivating his
beHiris. The little I know I accumulat
ed by reading the newspapers and a
few dime novels. i
'Consequently I am always taklne a
fall out of th 3 language. I never could
wise myself to the fine points of gram
mar, and It was only recently I milt
saying 'I done It,' and 'I have went.'
Every now and then an nleck stops me
in the middle of a discourse and shows
mo where I am wrong, unci If there Is
any way of getting even with that man
I always do. There was a drummer
for a shoe house who used to frequent
mis place. I took a liking to lilm, and
always gave him the best room and
saw that his eggs were fresh from the
vines, and looked after his comfort
generally.
"One day I was telling him a story,
and he stopped me Just when I was
approaching the peroration, and began
to explain the difference between
shall' and 'will.' It seemed that I al
ways used one of these words when I
should have used tho other, and In the
goodness of his heart he explained the
whole business to me. When he had
made everything clear he asked me to
finish my story, but I told him, in a bit
ing sort of way, that I might wound
him to the quick by misplacing a few
more words, so I would spare him that
Inulction.
"Then he saw he was In bad, end he
began telling me how he always liked
to be corrected, and he took it for
granted that others felt the same way
about it, and the more he talked the
less use I bad for him.
"He registered here many times aft
er that, always got the worst room in
the bouse and If there was a particu
larly tough steak on hand, It went to
him. He tried Ills hardest to square
himself, and was always looking at
me, hoping to see a winning smile on
my chaste lips, but be never got any
thing but the arctic glare, and I sup
pose he's kicking himself, even to this
day, because he made that break. And
if you want to queer yourself with all
your friends, you'll keep up this thUJt
of telling people of their mistakes.'
Miss Mame Thomas left Sunday
for a two weeks visit with relatives
and friends at her old home in West
Plains, Mo. Miss Frances Whittier
has charge of the millinery store dur
ing Miss Thomas' absence.
