BY EDWIN 8. HOPKINS.
When the leaves are off the bushes and
the quails begin to pipe,
And the hickory nuts are falling and tl.e
pawpahs good and ripe,
And the twigs you htep .so carefully on
sure to snap and crack,
And you whistle to the setter and the
squirrel jaws you back
O. them's the kind of days for me to meet
the rising sun,
With hunting boots "and trousers and a
do-.ble- rr.Mt-i n;
When the woods are full of hap;y sot.nda
of every sort and type,
And the leaves are off the bushes and the
quails begin to pipe.
There's a kind of free-like fueling Lroken
loose inside of you,
And you want to holler awful but you
know you dassen't to;
For the frosty woods is always full of
From the tussy li,ile partridge, with its
whizzing, whirring wings,
To the leaping, long-eared cotton-tail,
that goes a-skip inr hence,
And the frisky little chipmunk on the
top rail of the fence,
Where he giggles till he dabbles up as if
he had the gripe,
When the leaves are off the bushes and
the quails begin to pipe.
There's a sort of dreamy sadness, too, a
feller often feels,
With his game hag full of pheasants and
the setter at his heels,
As he plods across the meadows at thea
setting of the sun j
And he thinks of them dead pheasants at
the banging of the gun,
. , . , v u i .
And he has some queertsh notions about
the-souls of birds and jiien,
And the happy hunting grounds that's in
the everlasting when,-7
For he's marked the day behind him
with an awful ugly stripe
When the leaves are off the bushes and
the quils begin to pipe. I
If They Were Women.
As in last Suiid iv's issue of the
Courier-Journal some ten famous wo
me i told what they would do if they
were men. the men are now given a
chance to reverse the discussion and tell
what they Would do it tiny were the
fair sex. It is believed that the sub-
joined contributions will be read" with
as much interest as thos printed last
week from the pens of the ladies.
FROM MERRY BOB BURDETTE.
What would I do if I were a woman ?
I would try to be a man. Cut that
o,.r ...d it on rmir b,!.in.r .rb,
daughter, and it wilt an ornament
of grace unto thy head and chains
about thy neck many times a day.
1 would shudder and groan every
time the Monster was mentioned, but I
would studiously avoid acquiring the
slightest of his many accomplishments
and the bestjof his manifold ways.
I would never learn to lay a tire in
range or fireplace. Every time I
touched a fire 1 would put it dead out.
Then I'd never be expected to make
The first loaf of bread I baked 1
wouhiiet it. drop on the clog and kill
him. Then I'd never be asked to bake
bread again, and I'd get a new dog.
When I descended into the laundry
I would manage to bring out all the
fancy flannels white as ghosts, and all
the white shirts as blue as the skies of
June. Then I'd uetfer be asked to assist
at the Wihtub again.
I would pinch every baby that was
given me to hold black and blue in
half a dozen places before it could catch
its breath enough to shriek, and I
would frighten the life or tease the
temper out -of everybody's children
whom I was asked to amuse. Then I'd
never be troubled with other people's
young ones, and nobody would ask me
to teach the infant class while the tired
teacher took a vacation.
If I had-to sit on the front seat
when asked to drive I would rather
carry a large son umbrella and gouge
the driver's eyes 5ut and run the team
into a fence corner the first mile out.
Then I'd get the back seat on the
shady side every time ever afterward.
I would always sit sideways in a
street car. Then I would have plenty
I would wear a carriage dress in the
street car if I had no other way of
showing it off.
I would smash something choice and
expensive every time I swept a room or
dusted a parlor. Then I'd never be
asked to do such work.
In church I would never rise during
the singing and never kneel during
prayers. Then people would notice me
and say: u Who is that pretty girl
with such lovely eyes?"
At the the theatre I would wear the
biggest hat obtainable.
At cricket and lawn tennis matches
I would 4it iu the front row and raise
1 would cultivate such charming
helplessness, such hopeless innocence,
such pretty, childish ignorance, such
fascinating dependence, such dainty
baby ways, that people would -say:
" Oh, we must take care of her; she
doesn't understand these t biu gs." Then
all my life long I would lie petted and
coddled, and fondled, and cared for in
a thoiwa nd ways, where more independ
ent women have to " hustle H for them
selves. That is, daughter, if other- women
would care for such a sweet little bit of
helpless. Maybe they would. You
know better than I do how women re
gard that sort of a woman.
But, you can gamble your peace of
mind, your love of ease and all your
enjoyments of life, that the Monster
Man wouldn't torment the solitude of
such a woman with his presence longer
th 4ii a day or two, and she would thus
be sj ared one of the greatest annoy
ance to which mankind is subjected.
Robert J. Bcrdette.
WHAT DR. TALMAGK WOULD DO.
If I were a woman:
I would stay a woman.
If there is anything despicable to my
mind it is an effeminate man or a mas
Just in proportion as woman does
her work in the sphere that God has
appointed for her, he will be happy
There is si great multitude of men
now who, by their manners, assume a
sort of womanhood. They want to be
soft; they go simpering through the
world, and they are far from being of
interest to any bod'. A man should be
a man a woman a woman, and nothing

Were I woman:
I should consider that nothing was

thing ncie vulgar than jealousy.

This is what I would do.
And if the men were to expect me to
return any gratitude to them for it
why that's just what I would not do.
FROM WILL CARLETON.
If I were a woman I should thank
God for considering my soul worthy
such an environment, and strive each
day to show him that his confidence
was not misplaced.
THE AUTHOR OF " HELEN S BABIES.
If 1 were a woman:
I would trust my appearance more to
Dame Nature than to the dressmaker,
for I see that healthy women attract
mote attention than exquisitively-dress-ed
I would regard my heal'h as my for
tune, to be respected according by
others as well as myself.
I viu Id spend a great deal of time
out of doors, even if I couldn't do it
except by weeding my own garden.
I would read and study as much as
my father, husband, brother or son, so
as never to be regarded as " only a wo
man." I Would never treat a man of doubt
ful character as any better than a wo
man of the same sort. I know how
men regard women who u make allow
ances " for men whose lives are not
what they should be.
1 would never regard a mere admirer
as a possible husband, nor accept ad
miration as a substitute for love. I
have seen thousands of dogs as much
admired as women.
I would '"cut" any male acquaint
ance who talked sense to men but f riv
olties to me. John Habberton.

the Lord God "planted a garden cast

rested again. And I hope it was a
good long rest. For the next that the

One Thing at a Time.
"Early in life," relatsa a gentlemen
who has now spent man? days in the
ervice of God and his fellow-men, "I
learned from a very simple inci.lent a
wholesome lesson, and one which has
since been of inc .'enable benefit to tne,
- "When I was between twelve and
fourteen years old my father broke up
a new-field on his farm and planted it
with potatoes, and when the plants were
two or three inches high he sent me to
hoe it. The ground at that place was
hard to till; it was matted with grass
roots and sprinkled with stones. I
hoed the first row, and then stopped to
take a general look at the task before
me. Grass as high as the potatoes was
everywhere, and looking at the whole
from any point it seemed a solid mass.
I h id t h3 work to do all alone, and as
I stood staring at the broad reach of
weedy soil, I felt a good mind not to
try to do anything further then with it.
"Just that min 1 1 e I happened to
look down at the hill nearest my feet.
The grass didn't seem just quite as
thick and I said to myself, kI can hoe
this one well enough.1
"When it was done, another thought
came to help me: i shan't have to hoe
but one hill at a time at any rate
"And so I went to the next and
next. But here I stopped again antl
looked over the field. That gare me
another thought too. I could hoe
every hill as 1 came to it; it was only
looking away to all the hills that made
the whole seem impossible.
'1 won t look at it! 1 snxl; am I
