THE LAND HE HAS GONE TO.
Beautiful Words By the Late
Robert J. Burdette.
I watch the sunset as I look out
over the rim of the blue Pacific,
and there is no mystery beyond
the horizon line, because I know
what is over there. I have been
there. I have journeyed in those
lands. Over there where the sun
is just sinking is Japan. That,star
is rising over China. In that di
rection lie the Philippines. I know
all that. Well, there is anwher
land that I lock toward as I watch
the sunset. I have never seen it.
I have never seen any one who
hus been tf'cre, but it has a more
abiding reality than any of these
lands which I know. This land
beyond the sunset—this land of im
mortality, this fair and blessed
country of the soul—why, this
heaven of ours is the one thing in
the world which I know with ab
solute, unshaken, unchangeable
certainty. This I know with a
knowledge that is never shadowed
by a passing cloud of doubt. 1
may not always be certain about
this world; my geographical loca
tion may sometimes become con
fused, but the world—that 1 know.
And as the afternoon sun sinks
lower, faith shines more clearly
and hope, lifting her voice in a
higher key, sings the voice of frui
tion. My work is about ended, I
think. The best of it 1 have done
poorly; any of it I might have done
better, but I have done it. And in
a fairer land, with finer material
and a better working light, I will
do better work.

BY NANCY BYRD TURNER.
I want to go back to a place my heart remembers, 1
An old square house on the top of a sentinel hill
Where slow Time loiters along however it will—
Blue Junes and gray Novembers.
There spring returns with the music of whippoorwills calling
And sudden violets where a slope is green
And smoke adrift on a south wind spicy and keen
When the slow, damp dusk is falling.
There autumn comes with a click of frost in the night,
And a hickory log and a lump of lightwood pine
Flame on the hearth and set the gloom ashine
With a riot of ruddy light. ^
An unkept, ragged old guardian wall incloses
An arbor purple with grapes and a lone pear tree
And borders of mignonette and savory
And ranks of crimson roses.
There's a stream near by, where mellow-bugs dart and skip.
That chuckles aloud and talks in cheery tones
And brims a cool deep basin among the stones
Where dusty feet can dip.
The doors stand wide in the tranquil house on the hill.
And the wind walks down the hall and stirs a curtain—
The wind or spirit, never I could be certain—
And the rooms are sweet and still.
Ripe acorns rain on the roof, a faii y din.
And wake me deep in the nightime over and over;
At many a dawn a cow gets into the clover
And rings the sunrise in.
A curly path through a Held, a sagging rail,
A hole in a hedge, a mark on a sassafras tree;
The way that my boyhood went is blazed for me
In signs that cannot fail.
Nothing will hush this crying, whether or no!
My heart is fain for the miracle it remembers.
The beauty of old sweet Aprils and Septembers;
I cannot choose but go.
The long highways of the world are seven times seven;
Though a man should travel them all from shore to shore
And yet at the last Rnd one old trail no more,
He has missed the road to heaven.
1 will turn my back on the noisy markets of men.
O roses, wait in the sun by (he garden wall;
O Angel, touch the curtains in the hall—

“Our new minister is just won
derful. He brings things home to
you that you never saw before.”
“Huh! I’ve got a laundryman
who does the very same thing.”
LIKE THE CLIMATE.
“When your wife gets angry
does she cry?"
“Yes,” said Mr. Meekton. “It
isn’t the warmth of her temper I
fear so much as the humidity.”
THAT ODD DOT.
Do Not Disparage the Boy Who
Do not discourage that boy of
yours because he is odd, because
he does not get the highest grade,
because his card shows he is dull-
Why, that may be one of ihe signs
that he is great, but not in the line
exactly of the books crammed into
his hands for him to cram into his
head. Recall that Beecher said
that he got more discipline out of
inventing excuses why he could
not get his lessons in mathematics
than he ever did from the books.
Longfellow has expressed our

Do not disparage the boy who
seems dull. It may be his way.
One of the things of which our col
leges boast is one of the things of
which they ought to be most
ashamed : namely, they will
send a student home if his remarks
on examination are not up to per
centages. Forsooth. That is some
thing to shame a school. Let the
student get what he can assimilate.
He will get a lot out of association
and effort and encouragement.
Why brand him as a fool because
certain studies do not wedge them
selves into his brain just .exactly as
in the texts? Education should be
democratic. Some would gear it
simply to the intellectual aristocrats.
Moreover, read again those lines
of Longfellow. They have often
“No, I shall marry only a brave
man,” said the maiden firmly.

takes bravery for a poor mut like
me to propose to such a beautiful

Make 10 lbs. of Soap
and Save $1.00
The cleansing power in any soap or cleanser you
buy is lye. Soap is tallow (grease) mixed with
lye and water. You can make it yourself and save
a great deal of money. It will suit your needs better,
too, for you can make just the kind of soap you want,
either hard or soft.
Simply take 5^ pounds of clean grease (lard or
tallow) free from salt. Melt it down. Then set aside
Take a large can of R*d Seal Lye and dissolve it in
3^ pints of cold water. Bring this to about Summer
heat and pour it slowly into the melted grease. Stir
until the mixture becomes uniformly thick and pour
into a mould. Cover up and set in a warm place until
next day. Then you can cut it into pieces and you’ll
have 10 lbs. of the finest cleansing soap you ever used
—and will have saved about $1.00.
Isn’t that well worth while? You bet it isl And
then just remember these other fine uses for Red Seal
Lye: It is a water softener, saving a great deal of
soap- It kills all disagreeable odors, purifies and dis*
infects at the same time. Dissolve a spoonful of it in
a quart of water and you have a wonderful cleaning
solution for helping lighten your work in washing
dishes, doors, floors, woodwork —everything about
the house. A little of it sifted into the sink cleans
out the pipes and prevents them from becoming
But make sure the lye you buy is Red Seat Lye.
This pure lye is granulated and packed in cans that
are easy and convenient to use. Always ask your
storekeeper for, and be sure to get, the old reliable
Red Seal Granulated Lye.
