A Life’s Lesson. i
(By James Whitcomb Riley.) I I
There! litle girl, don’t cry! j
They have broken your doll, 11
And your tea-set blue,
and your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
But childish troubles will soon pass (
There! little girl, don’t cry!
There! little girl, don’t cry!
They have broken your slate, I
And the glad wild ways
Os your schoolgirl days
Are things of the long ago;
But life and love will soon come by—
There! little girl, don’t cry!
There! little girl, don't cry!
They have broken your heart, I
And the rainbow gleams
Os your y’outhful dreams
Are things of the long ago;
But Heaven holds all for which you
There! little girl, don't cry!
Monday James Whitcomb Riley;
was 59 years old, or it should be;
said 59 years young, because age'
has not reached his heart yet. and
the songs of childhood still spring
from his soul.
No writer of poetry has so de
lighted the life of children since
Eugene Field faded from the earth,
and no living man is nearer the
heart of childhood.
But Riley has reached the hearts of
all who are human; he writes the
। simple stuff that goes to mirror hu
■ man life, and he touches the chords
; of sympathy and kindness that find
ready response wherever men live,
, move and have their being.
Riley keeps young, too.
He is the “Hoosier Poet,” and he
lives always the simple life that
keeps youth alive.
Born at this season when the
“sere and yellow leaf” brings sad
ness to some, it is little wonder that
he saw the other side, and finds joy
I in contemplation of the season,
I "When the frost is on the pumpkin
i and the fodder's in the shock.”
Endowed with all the love of na
ture, Riley has never longed for
wealth or fame, and has been con
tented to simply live in the hearts
of his fellow beings.
He is a man who can find more
pleasure in a dollar’s worth of flow
er seed, than in the cold, minted
metal itself. He sees the beauty of
the sky, and the woods, and the
birds, and can disregard the mud on
his feet; he is satisfied with the
simpler life, with no knawing desire
to hobnob with the nobility, and
with those who have won riches and
lost contentment.
He can see more in the blossom of
the rose than the millionaire can
see. He finds his greatest happiness
in the glut of the Indiana woods and
fields, rather than in the fleece of
the lambs on Wall street.
Great is Riley—may he live long
and prosper.
“Getting in your winter fuel is
easy. Paying the coal man is where

Says the Searcy Citizen: “The
women of an Ohio town have organ
ized an anti-gossip league. The
movement will never spread.” Per
haps the movement was started in

The way new subscribers and re
newals are coming in for the weekly
edition of the Guard from people of
all sections of the county is enough
to gladden the heart of the Guard

Says the Texarkanian: "To be suc
cessful is not merely to accumulate
wealth, but to assist in the upbuild

but how is a man to be successful if
he does not help to build up the

make his money?
Ho wdoes Mr. Roosevelt reconcile
his views about free trade with Can

The Paragould Soliphone says the
“ideal newspaper is one that would
be free from criticism by anybody.”
As a matter of fact, the nearest ideal
newspaper on earth is often the one
most criticised. Newspapers are like
individuals—amount to very little it
they do nothing, and if they do any
thing they are sure to be criticised. 1
