I think perhaps I shall go wtatfuUy
Along the streets of gold.
Remembering how earth, too, onoe
wee fair
And dearly loved of okL
The pearly gates may shine reepleo
Fair to my wondering eyes.
But they can never bar the memory
Os earthly, sunset skies.
And I shall never be content with all
The glories that may be.
If there is not. beside the jaaper wall
One flowering dogwood Arse.
With all the music of the heavenly
Upon my senses ringing.
Something will lack if I «h t n no _
where hear
A robin singing.
Amid the scent of frankincense and
My thoughts will turn again
To blooming orchards, apple, plum
and pear—
To lilacs In the rain.

"Was that the first time he bad

"As far as 1 ever knew, it was."
Che girl replied. “At least it was on

"Which, of course, confirmed his

“That Is a grand schooner," Tom
declared. "She has some of the finest
lines I have ever seen on a boat of
her type, and she seems to be is
sound as a nut."
Pauo smiled: “She was the finest

replied. "She Is solid mahogany from

"She looks like a good 'dirty

"If you would call riding out more
than a dozen hurricanes in the open
see during those years, she'll fill that
Sill," I’auo declared. She looked qutz
ically at Tom: "You never saw a
hurricane as we get them down here
did you?”
“Not yet."
“Wait until the wind begins
screaming up between 80 and 100
miles an hour," Pauo stated with
knowing emphasis. "It is an educa
"What happened after he got the
boat built?" 1 wanted to know.
“He sailed her back to Papeete In
time to meet the newlyweds." she
Hiid. "At that time dad and grand
father hadn't met for nearly eight
years. They all came home here and
•gttled down."
"And then?” I raised by eyebrows.
"Bloody old Tarea ‘got them.'"
Pauo said quietly.
T think wa all sat up at that 1

way she had said it She said slowly:
"First It was my great-grand
father. Then it took my grandfather,

My own mother was taken next, and
finally my dad. It is the curse of
Nu. that ugly old stone god that sits
staring blindly, up in the ancient
temple high in that left peak.
"It has followed nay family for al
most a century with b chain of vio

my great-grandfather on the Whit

that curse—l too am doomed!"
Suddenly Larry sat up: "Non

For a second or two I thought
Pauo might be going to hit him. I

But they HAPPEN! I have lived

"You sure you are not a bit super
stitious?" Holmes said lightly.
"Wouldn't you admit being just a
little superstitious?" He was banter
ing. Saw he wa* in a bad spot and
was trying to josh and kid her out
of it.
"Call it by any name you like," she
told him softly, "but I have seen too
many things happen not to be con

It was late when I opened by eyes.
1 knew by the light in the room that
the sun was high. The living room
was empty as 1 went through lb a
bathing suit headed for the lagoon.
I found the others sunning them

house. Tom and tarry had the shoul

were lying In the sun painting on a
little more of that ever deepening
coat of tan.

along the pfer and leaped over In a
running dive. Cool water roared past
my ears and Imparted a delightfully
exhilarating shock to my body. That
pepping up was welcome, for I had
stili been a bit slumber-fogged, from
too sound sleep.
The impetus of tbe dive died and
I popped to the surface, threw the
hair from my eyes, and lit out for
the boat house In a fast crawl. I
was breathing bard as I pulled my
self from the water and joined the
others. But my head was clear.
“Hurry up and get your tan

he could have resisted the standpat

Actually the convention appeared to
favor Senator Hi*am Bingham or
Nicholas Murray Butler for president
purely on the wet issue.
But will there be a third party and
if so, will it face economic truths?
The prevailing sentiment here is that
no Republican delegates from purely
Republican states went home dis
couraged. yet with no plan, aside from
that of Nicholas Murray Butler. Os ail
the leaders who attended the con
vention there was nome ready to meet
the economic situations.
The La Folletles and other pro
gressives had no place in the con
vention. Butler is old, he will lead no
Republican office-holders in south

administration or the old gttard. gave

Cry Has More Than “Beer'’
I tis true that the Republican re
volt occurred over the liquor plank.
It Is true that delegates gave hardly
a thought to anything else. It is true
that some leaders desired a "stronger”
man for vice president because they
see need for powerful anti-red public
figures, but delegates remained calm
on that.
Yet, beneath the cry for beer is an
economic urge to grasp at something
to bring us out of the dumps.
The drys have found the depression
their worst enemy.
In the meantime, the rank and fil®
having tasted near victory in the Re
publican convention on the liquor is
sue, will not be silent on other Is
sues. If the Democratic convention
does not give its delegates any great
er satisfaction, then both major par
ties may suddenly find themselvet
confronted by an unorganized group
much more difficult to fight than a
third party.
De Quincey being asked why there
were more women than men. replied
“It is in conformity wit hthe ar
rangements of nature; we always see
more of heaven than of earth.”
