Ah, the blighted flower now dropping lonely, Would perfume the mountain side, If the sun’s bright ray had but shone today, And the pretty bud espied. If you’ve any alms to give to the poor, Don’t wait till you hear the cry Of wan distress in this wilderness, Lest the one forsook may die. Oh, hearken to poverty’s sad lament! Be swift her wants to allay; Don’t spurn God’s poor from the favored door, As you hope for mercy one day. Don’t wait for another to bear the burden Of sorrow’s irksome load; Let your hand extend to a stricken friend As he totters down life's road. And if you've anthing good to say of a man Don’t wait till he’s laid at rest; For eulogy spoken w'hen hearts are broken Is an empty thing at best. “Whatever happens,” said the pa triotic citizen, “there is no doubt that the country is safe.” “Yes,” said the cynical grumbler; “the country is safe enough. But with these railway trains and automobiles, how about the inhabi tants?” Editor (to office boy)—Mr. Witt has called for the jokes he left the other day. Have you seen them? Office boy —-No, sir. I read them, but I couldn’t see ’em. One evening at dinner, a lady who had the reputation of being the most in veterate ‘kicker’ at the hotel, asked the waiter why the dessert served her was called “ice cream pudding.” “If you don’t like it, ma’am, I can bring you something else,” the negro politely re plied. “Oh, it’s very nice, indeed,” said the lady. ‘ ‘ The name is all I ob ject to. If they call it ice cream pud ding they should serve iee cream with it.” “Well, ma’am,” replied the waiter, “that’s just our name for it. Lots of things called that way. You don’t get no cottage with a cottage pudding.” “SCRAPE.” The word “scrape,” meaning a diffi culty, derived its origin in a curious way. When deer roamed the forests they used to scrape up the earth with their fore feet, and, and thus leave a hole sometimes a foot or two deep. When wayfarers passed through the woods, they were in danger of falling into' these hollows, and wrenching an ankle or twisting a thigh, and thus they were said to have got in to a scrape. The Cambridge students picked up the expression and applied it to any perplex ing matters that brought a man morally into a fix. Contrary to the general impression, the phrase, ‘ ‘ not worth a tinker’s dam, ’ ’ is one of innocent character. It origin ated in a device that tinkers have used from time immemorial whenever they desired to flood a portion of their work with solder. It is a circular wall of-dough raised about the rim of a plate with a turned over edge, and serves to prevent the melted solder from escaping. The material from which such a wall or dam is made is worthless after having been used once. Upon this basis, naturally enough the expression came to be em ployed to characterize anything that was of only temporary usefulness.
