LOVB-DRE AM OF STARS
BY FRANK L. STANTON.
The wind is feeling for to find its way
From the dreaming darkness to the Rose ol Day;
For the stars have whispered from their home of blue
Of an old loved garden where they dreamed of you !
And it's O for the glory of the bloom and beam.
And the old, sweet story in a star’s love-dream !
The Wind is singing, for the song came
When the stars made music that could breathe your name;
Is there one at a window in a light-lived place.
Where the rose is fairer that has seen her face ?
O light in glory from the far skies stream—
Tell the sweetheart-story of the stars’ love-dream !
Love is ihe glory of the Springtime, sweet;
Love Is the story all the stars repeat;
Lead life loveward, to the lilies there.
Where every blossom is an answered prayer.
And night shall be light, and Its splendor stream
'Round the old, sweet story of a world’s love-dream.
fi0yii0 rm ommEm.
Just around the corner! O, it's just a little ways
Where there lingers still the joy-times of our iiappy childhood day
Though sometimes the way is weary,, and we chafe beneath the load
That we bear on tired shoulders as we trudge the weary road.
Yet ev’ning comes upon us.and we seize the rest we’ve won.
Laying down a while the burden ge have borne since rising sun,
We can close our eyes on toiling and mem’ry's wings of gold
Ply back just around the corner to the childhood days of old.
Just around the corner! Such a little ways to go
When we travel back in mem’ry to the joys we used to know
Such a little backward journey, but how long the journey seems
When ’tis measured by the heart-aches and the pains of vanished
Such a little journey taken on the wings of memory.
Though now how long the way, and weary, since the days of used
to be. '*■
But when ev’ning’s shadows gather quick we take the backward
Till we’re just around the corner where we used to laugh and play.
Just around the corner! .0, how blue the arching skies;
And how sweet the roses blooming, and how sweet the woodland lies
Hear the music of the water as it turns the grumbling wheel;
Watch thr partridge through the thickets in the cooling shadows steal';
Hear the chatter of the squirrel, hear the nuts as they fall;
Catch the far off welcome echoes of the old horn’s ringing call!
Long the road that we have journeyed, though it’s but a little ways—
Only just around the corner to the joys of our days.
GHOST THAT COMES TO PRAY. | LOOKED LIKE PROMISED MAN.
Apparition Reported to Have
Been Seen In London Church,
From tlie I.ondon Kaily Elpresa.
A mysterious apparition has been
seen io St. Thomas’s Church Re
gent street. The story of the ghost
ly figure is lold by the Rev. Clar
ence May, the vicar, who asserts
that it appeared to him personally.
He is partly supported by other
people, who state that noises were
heard by them before the appear
ance of the spirit.
"The events have occurred in
the course of the last three weeks,
said Mr. May. “Uncanny knock-
ings were heard by the caretaker
and her nephew, who was with
her in the church at the time. She
came and informed me, while the
man waited outside. No one could
have passed him without being
seen, but when I arrived the church
"A few days later my curate, the
Rev. John Evitt, heard patterings
of feet, although no one was in the

Victim ol Carelessness Came Back
With Pointed Remark Cancern-
Ing Companion's Immediate
Two negroes were working in
a coal bin in a Mississippi town,
one down in the bin throwing out
the cpal and the other wielding a
shovel. The one inside picked up
a large lump and heaved it care
lessly into the air, struck the other
a resounding blow on the head.
As soon as the victim had re
covered from his momentary daze
he walked over to the edge of the
bin and, peering down at his mate,

does resemble my promise."
