I've promised her I will not swear
Of wine 1 will not drink my share
I will not smoke a cigarette,
Nor ever run a single debt,
Despite the credit I can get,
I will not stay out late at night,
Nor unexpected guests invite
No 10-cent limit will I play, '
Nor will I have a word to say
Of how she gossips day by day
I've promised that I will not write
How members of her card club fight
No statements of the facts I'll make
"When she turns out a lemon cak
That ax and hammer cannot break,
I will not publish private things
Nor roast a neighbor when she sings,
But very circumspect I'll be,
1 had to promise this, or she
Would not live In the house with me,
All Aboard for 1010!
Hail! Hail! The.gang's all here
The gang that getteth aboard each year
The same old crew with the same old " stew,"
That planneth to ride all the long year thru.
Hail! Hail! Though the crowd may scoff,
The cry still rings, We will never get off,
But we'll hold our seat down the long dry beat,
In spite of the drouth and the blistering heat."
Hail! Hail! For the dear old cart;
All aboad for the New Year's start;
Never a flagon shall go in this wagon ;
Never a rider who getteth a jag on.
Hall! Hail! Rings the well-worn cry;
But the tongue gets thick and the pipes get dry;
And alas and alack, when the cart gets back
Even the driver returns In a hack.
The Clever Ilare.
" I'll foil them yet," the hare exclaimed.
(The hounds were at! his back.)
He donned a pair of rubber boots,
And thus erased his track.
OO much cannot be said
in appreciation of Pine
hurst as a model village
as to its sanitary, hy
g i e n i c and comfortable
conditions, but too little
has been said anent the "spirit of the com
munity," which is deserving of special
notice. "People seem to change so
when they come here," said one guest to
another. "Why, those A B C's are
thought to be so exclusive and conven
tional at home but down here they are
the kindest and best of neighbors."
One has but to live the simple, sensi
ble life of Pinehurst village for a time
to get the kinks of cityism out of them
permanently. It seems to kind of
warm up the heart strings, and the Pine
hurst sunshine penetrates even into the
temper?, producing a sunsnine tem
perament, and I think even an Esqui
mau would warm up and become neigh
borly and blubberless after a time by
Perhaps the true communal spirit is
here without one fully knowing it!
Anyway, this ideal could not be better
illustrated than at Pinehurst. The es
sence is brotherly kindness common
interest and sympathy. This we find.
The true community spirit is the adapta
tion of all to one common interest of
unselfish service for others. This is
present in a marked degree. The rele
gation of show and competition of extrav
agant display in dress and homes and
personality to the barbarous and pro
vincial ash pile where it belongs is a
part of it and a large part of the "Pine
hurst Spirit!" Each one needs the
friendly-grasp, the help and encourage
ment we alone can give each other at
times and this spirit we find not lacking.
The "Pinehurst Spirit" is a tangibility
and asset of the place which is now
paying large dividends io the "subscrib
ers. 7 it is said, tnat tne meal or tne
true community spirit is never reached,
because of the imperfection of its expo
nents, yet this fact does not lessen the
value of the ideal. The Pinehurst spirit
does in fact exist and even if it falls
short of the ideal, it is a delightful liv
able, rare spirit of the place. So that
what Pinehurst is in itself in its own
constituent parts, is of paramount interest
and effect, as men and places are worth
only as much as the things are worth
about which they busy themselves.
It is easy to perceive then that to work
against each other is contrary to reason,
when by working together so . much of
good can be accomplished, and easy thus
to see that the Pinehurst spirit is the
natural wholesome blossom of the
human plant of neighborliness.
We do not usually learn till too late to
cultivate and make the most of ourselves
as we do not of our communities. One
hasfbut to come and see and experience
for himself in order to himself apprt
ciate at its full value the fragrance and
delight of these southern pines and
flowers as well as of the Pinehurst

of the lower creatures. Birds which
have fallen into the hands of naturalists
and which had previously suffered se
rious wounds on the legs were found to
have actually reenf orced the dressing of
down with small straws or twigs just as
a doctor would set a broken limb in
splints before applying bandages. To
this same facE M. Tatio, a naturalist,
bears witness, and his statements are
borne out by no less a celebrity than
Fulbert Dumonteil. Tatio says that no
less than ten times in his experience he
has found birds whose limbs had pre
viously been broken by shot and the
fractured ends had been neatly approx
imated and ligatured together. He adds
that the skill displayed in this perform
ance would have done credit to human
The bee, that wonderful little creature
the organization of whose community
must always be a source of admiration,
is among other things an excellent
doctor and goes about its work in this
particular with the same scrupulous care
that it exercises in all else that it does.
For certain ailments it sucks the astring
ent dogwood, poplar, wild cherry or
hickory. Bee keepers sometimes place
a small vessel containing a decoction of
wild cherry in the bee hives during the
winter that the little honey makers may
minister to their ailments if they are
stricken during the period when the
rigors of weather would make it difficult
for them to obtain remedies elsewhere.
The care of the health is a first con
sideration with many dumb creatures of
which man has an intimate knowledge.
Even the tiny fly that performs its toilet
on the window sill is bent on extending
its days to the allotted time of flies by

A " Toast " to 1910 and a Happy New
Year to the Golfers. May their shadows
never grow less! May each one be
"one up" at the home green "with
the red blood all aglow ! " May each
shot grow "longer" and each score
grow " smaller," every ball be a " nice
ball" and every putt "deadly." May
"distance" get married inseparably to
"direction," and every walk in life be
as optimistic and hopeful as down the

every " bunker " fail of its purpose and
ponds cease to " mentally terrify "

"Pinehurst summer" and everybody's
"game" be "present" when wanted

A Happy Golfer.
