' JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY The Davs Gone By 0 the days gone by! O the days gone by! The apples in the orchard, and the pathway througn tne rye; The chirrup of the robin, end the whistle of the quail As he piped across the meadows sweet as any aightingale; When the. bloom was on the clover, and the blae was in the sky, And my happy heart brimmed over in the day gone by. In the days gone by, when my naked feet were tripped By the honeysuckle tangles where the . water lilies dripped, And the ripples of the river lipped the moss along the brink Where the placid-eyed and lazy-footed cattle came to drink. And the tilting snipe stood fearless of the truant's wayward cry And the splashing of the swimmer, in the days gone by. Oh, the days gone by! Oh, the days gone by: The music of the laughing lip, the luster oi tne eye; The childish faith in fairies, and Alad din's magic ring The simple, soul-reposing glad relief in everything When life was like a story, holding neither sob nor sigh. In the golden old glory of the days gone by. JAMES WHITCOMB RILEY, A Memorial Day Vision The past, as it were, rises before me like a dream. Again we are in the great struggle for national life. We hear the sound of preparation the music of the boisterous drums, the silver voices of the heroic bugles. We see thousands of assemblages, and hear the appeals of orators; we see the pale faces of women and the flushed laces oi men; and in those assemblages we see all the dead whose dust we have covered with flowers. We lose sight of them no Wore. We are with them when they enlist in the great army of freedom. We see them part with those they love. Some are walking for the last time in quiet, woody places-with the maidens they adore. We hear the whisperings and the sweet vows of eternal love as they lingeringly part forever. Others are bending over cradles kissijig babes that are asleep. Some are reciving the blessings of old men. Some are porting with mothers who hold them and press them to their hearts again end again, and say nothing; and some are talking with wives and endeavor ing, with brave words spoken in the old tones, to drive away the awful fear. We see them part. We see the wife standing in the door with the be be in her arms standing in the sunlight sobbing. At the turn of the road a hand waves she answers by holding high in her loving hands the child. He is gone, and forever. We see them all as they march proudly away under the flaunting flags, keeping time to the wild, grand music of warmarching down the streets of the great cities through the towns and across the prairies down to the fields of glory, to do and die for the eternal right. We go with them one and all. We are by their side on all the gory fields, in all the hospitals of pain, on all the weary marches. We stand guard with them in the wild storm and under the quiet stars. We are with them in the ravines running with blood in the furrows of old fields. We are with them between the contending hosts, unable to move, wild with thirst, the life ebbing slowly away among the withered leaves. We see them pierced by balls and torn with shells in the trenches of forts, and in the whirlwind of the charge, where men became iron with nerves of steel. We are with them in the prisons of hatred and famine, but human speech can never tell what they endured. We are home when the news comes that they are dead. We see the maiden in the Vntiow of her sorrow. We see the s l.ered head of th old man bowed with the last grief. The past rises before us. We hear the roar and shriek of the bursting shell. The broken fetters fall. These heroes died. We look. Instead of slaves we see men and women and children.

They died for liberty they died for us. They died for us. They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, un der the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, th sad hem locks, the tearful wjlows. th em bracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless 1 ke of sunshine or storm, each in the windowless palace of rest. Earth may run red with other wars they are at peace. In the midst of bat tle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for th soldier. Iiv ng and dead cheers for th liv ing and tears for the dead. KOBfcKT U. IUEKSULU A LIFE EVERY HALF HOUR THIS YEAR'S TOLL That Is What the Figure Show That carelessness is uomg in driv ing Automobiles . -H The '"Literary Digest of February 1, devotes much editorial space to the auto and its death toll. The Digest carries several headlines, gleaned in one week from papers in San Fran cisco, Omaha, Wichita, Detroit, At lanta, Chicago, Cleveland and New York reading as follows: Girl is Killed; bchool Girl Mruck by Reckless Driving, Dying; Street Car Crushes Auto, Truck Gears Drag Woman for U.Ies; Car Rams Auto, Kills 1 Hurts 4: Three Dies as Autos Skid on Snow; Woman Killed by Au- i r it . r e . . f Killed: Six Hurt in Auto Collision; Man is Killed, Three are Hurt in Accidents; Three Instantly Killed as Train H ts Auto Party; Auto on Wrong Side of Car. Hits Child Aged 6; Salesman Dies After Auto Crash." If the same death rate is maintain cd this year as wtts maintained last year a human life every half hour. day and night, every day In the year, will be the toll of autos in 1922. These figures are given by officials of the National Satety Council, who further estimate that 15,000 persons were killed in the United States last year, an increase of about 4000 over 1920. These figures led one editor to re mark that "our highways are as dan gcrous as the field of battle," and another to say "each year the streets become more dangerous. Killings in the metropolis now average more than two each day in the year." Ten per cent or the auto accidents throughout the United States occur at grade cross ng, officials of the Haiti more and Ohio Railway safety de Dartment state. "It ought to be i very simple thing for the driver of an automobile to keep a snarp look out as he approaches a railway crossing." remarks the Dayton News, "but in the simplicity of the thing lies the greatest danger. The New York World believes that most of the auto accidents are caus ed by carelessness, and the Provi dence Journal states that the careless ness is exhibited by both the auto driver and the redestrian. The World says "these accidents may be minute ly classified. There is for most of them onlv one class carelessness And the State is doing little to put the careless driver out of the busi ness in which he is an hourly men ace." The Journal states that "pe destrians often leave the sidewblks without looking for approaching ve hicles; the person who steps injront of a car can hardly exoect the driver to stop within a distance of two feet even if the rate of speed is moder ate." The Journal states further that neither the pedestrian nor the car driver has the exclusive right in the street r.nd that accidents will be avoided if both will use caution. Just what will stoD this butchery? Jail sentences, we believe. In Detroit, the home of automobiles, they are sentencing and confining prominent citizens to jail for violating speed ordinances and traffic rules. A few weeks ago several of the leading busi ness men of that city were behind the bars. In Ohio last week two damage suits totaling over $100,000 were filed against two men who had care lessly driven into other automobiles, inflicting serious, lifetime injuries upon those in the machines that were struck. Every State is confronted with the same problem, and each State will have to take drastic action to curb the fool drivers. As the New York Journal states, "it makes little difference to the parent whether his boy is kill ed by John Jones with a shotgun or an automobile. And the man who rikes another machine or pedestrian and runs awtoy, as many have done, is the arch coward of them all." When Your Farm Stock i Sick, Look for Rats.
