MY GRANDMOTHER’S GARDEN.
How well I remember the old-fashioned posies
That grew in my grandmother’s yard of yore:
The sweet honeysuckle, the climbing red roses.
That run o’er the lattice encircling the door.
Along the broad path leading down to the gateway,
A border of boxwood so primly did grow.
And quaint-shaped flower beds in bright colors, glowing,
Delighted the eye as one passed to and fro.
A big weeping willow stood nearby the gateway,
Its low drooping branches a cool retreat made
From the sun's fervid heat in the long days of Summer,
Enticing the weary to rest ’neath its shade.
Nearby stood the pump, with it’s long iron handle,
A boon to the traveler thirsty and worn.
Who, while pausing to drink of the cool, sparkling water.
To the lovely old garden their glances would turn.
The song birds their nests built secure from all prowlers.
In a neat little birdhouse upraised midst the flowers;
And they twittered and warbled in happy seclusion.
Through the sunshine and shade all the long Summer hours.
Along the old wall, like bold sentinels standing.
The tall golden sunflower looked out o’er the road;
And just underneath, in most charming confusion.
Petunias and asters with brilliancy glowed.
In a corner secluded, amid fern and mosses.
The myrtle and violet bloomed in the shade;
And a low rustic seat ’neath a bower of wisteria,
A quiet retreat in the cozy nook made,
A trumpet vine ran in magnificent riot.
O’er the trunk of an elm tree grown leafless and old;
Its long drooping blossoms in beautiful clusters.
Enshrouding in scarlet and gold.
Sweet pea and alyssum and lily-bell fragrant,
The flaunting red poppy and sweet mignonette.
Seemed bowing and swaying each one to the other,
Like beautiful fairies in a staid minuet.
How delightful it was in those long ago mornings.
To cull the bright blossoms while fresh with the dew;
Inhaling their perfume—1 ne’er can forget it.
Though ’tis many long years since that pleasure I knew.
The lovely old garden has passed from existence.
Its blossoms have faded, its beauty is o’er;
A mansion most stately with lawn closely shaven,
Now stands in the site of that garden of yore.
But no landscape patterned by fanciful flourish.
Nor orchid nor palm will appeal to me so
As the old-fashioned posies in grandmother’s garden,
In their beautiful blossoming long, long ago.
A FACT PLAINLY STATED.
It is Not Difference In Station or
Occupation That Makes The
flood Mather—It Is The Spirit.
If girls were educated to take
care of themselves, they would not
be so ready to marry, and they
would marry better, and there
would be less trouble—fewer di-
I vorces. If they were brought up
to work, they would know how
to use the broom, the duster and
the rolling pin. There are certain
qualities which are just as valuable
in the housekeeper and the
mother, as they are in the
business man—skill, intelligence,
and good sense. When those
qualities are rated a little higher
in women, domestic machinery
will run a good deal smoother,
and children will be brought up
to light their own battles and earn
their own bread. We all know
what that will tnean—less crime,
fewer paupers. The press and
the loom instead of the prison, the
altar, instead of the scafford. Again
and again the question is asked,
can a woman follow any special
calling, and be a good mother?
Love is born, so is good sense.
The woman who has those quali
ties will be a good mother, wheth
er she is a hand-worker or head-
worker. It is not difference in
station or occupation that makes
the good mother—it is the spirit.
Furthermore, some of the best
mothers, according to the old
standard, women who will toil
early and late, who never leave
their home, who deny themselves
every comfort and give up to every
right, have the worst children.
They do the hardest work, they
try to save their children from ev
ery hardship, only to learn, when
it is too late, that they have made
them idle and selfish.
William had just returned
from college, resplendent in

Facing death from shot and shell in
the civil war was more agreeable to J. A.
Stone, of Kemp, Texas, than facing it

TEASING AN AUSTRALIAN.
The Rt. Hon. George H. Reid,
the Australian statesman, was de

Reid is an enormously fat man,

“In ten years,” he said, “we

DOCTOR WAS DELIGHTED.
Bill Jones was an eccentric char
acter, a local justice of the peace
in a South Carolina town. He
was exceedingly tall—so attenuated
—in fact, that but for his hat he
would not have cast his shadow.
One night a number of his bonvi-
vants joined him in a symposium,
and many mint juleps were con
sumed. One of the party unstead
ily produced a revolver. It was
accidentally discharged, and a bul
let struck Bill Jones in the leg. *
Conscious-stricken and wabbly
with excitement and juleps the
owner of the weapon hastened to
the home of the nearest doctor and
pulled the door bell.
At length the physician, who had
himself been spending a riotous
evening, stuck his head from the
second story window.
“Whazza mazza?” he demanded
“I jush shot Bill Jones in the
leg,” replied the man below.
Shot Bill Jones in the leg?”
repeated the doctor wonderingly.
“Ash what I shaid, ” replied the
offender. “Shot Bill Jones in the
“Well,” he said, “that wash a

And he closed the window and
went back to bed.

seems to fail to tlo its duty.
