William F. McCotnbs the well-
known Democratic politician, re
lates the following ;
Little Tommy had a very pretty
sister. Pretty sister had a very
devoted admirer. One evening
when the devoted admirer was sit
ting in the parlor wailing for sister
to appear, he was approached by
“Say, Mr. Smith,” raiherpoini-
edly queried the youngster, "do
you love sister Jenny?”
"Why, Tommy !” was the
amazed response of the blushing
Mr. Smith. "Why do you ask
me a question like that?”
"Because,” was the quick re
joinder of the youngster, "she said
last night that she would give $5
to know, and 1 need the money."

Morning breaking on the hills—the curtain’s going up !
Sun’ll drink the world's health from the lily's brimming cup.
And in the woodland theater the rarest joys we’ll win,
The morn’ll shine the bright lights the world-show will begin !
A glad orchesira’s playing—
The music wants no words;
Concert of the birds.
The velvet vales are lifelike, the meadows are alive,
The bee from brightening blossoms drains the honey for the hive;
The gardens breathe in beauty, in gorgeous raiment dressed,
The hills seem heaven-kissed altars, by Priests of Morning blessed.
Hill and field and valley,
Glen and waterfall,
The Movies of the .Morning,
At the Master-Ariisi’s call.
See the moving pictures? ’Tis now no world of dreams;
Cattle seek the pastures, roads rumble with the teams;
Girls that gather violets—the kinfolk of the sky.
And barefoot boys a-splashing in (he brooks thai glittimer by.
Are we not in Loveland—
A world of blossom sweet.
The glory of the Morning
Where Earth and Heaven meet ?
And the Movies of the Morning breathe peace to batile-strife;
We are learning from the lilies all the litanies of life;
That a Heaven still bends above us where stars of Morning meet,
Home, and the hearts that love us in a world that's Heaven-sweet!
World of beam and blossom
In colors brave and grand.
Life’s living morning-pictures
By the Master-Artist’s Hand.
