Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE, ALTA., SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1909. From a Western Window Delia and I (By George Herbert Clarke) Delia and I are driving Driving, driving; Sleepily jogs the reliable roan. And over the meadows the blossoms are blown. And the song of the thrush finds an echoing Shriving, Shriving in "to be clear as her own. Delia and i are moving Moving, moving; few words are spoken, but many are meant: She smiles at the sunshine, on her I'm intent, And .still thro' the wood steals the jessamine scent, Proving, Proving our hearts and laughing at Lent. Delia and I are turning toward home, Turning, turning; The stars are alight in the infinite dome, The field hues are faded to glimmer- ing The moon-ship is launched from horizons of Learning, Learning the roads that lead lovers; to Rome! Magazine for April. It is a sad commentary on the frail- j ty of human affections to witness the i passing of the Teddy Bear, and the: i beginning of the reign of Bill Possum. For seven years in the great. Repub- lic to the south of us, and in a les- ser measure in our own country, Ted- dy Bear hay been the ido! cf child- ish hearts, and the most cherished possession iu many a. nursery. Rum- ors have, reached us from time to time of Grand Society dames who have made friends with Teddy and carried him about everywhere bask- ing ;in the favor of their smiles, but of that we have seen nothing in this country. A stray edition of bear- ship decorated with a huge of blue ribbon and adorning a'mantle or piano, we see once in a while as index of the owner's shade of hfrro worship, but that's all. may expect to sec- Kl dy no more. His day is waniif'. -n- deed has waned; and he is u Hn, Been. We are told on good ity that all the world's a stage? and" that the men and women have their exits and their entrances and the same applies to Teddy Bears. "Sec- ond childishness and mere oblivion" have now be Teddy's part while Bill'' Possum makes his bow. It was through the ex-President's prowess as a hunter that Teddy Bear first became associated with him; and it seems that at a recent ban- quet in New Orleans the 'possum oc- cupied a prominent place in the menu and had the honor of being served to President. Taft, and leaped into fame at once. It is not quite easy to see the connection between the'lit- tle gray animal with the pinto-like coat, pointed nose and long curved tail, and "Big Bill Taft" of the gen- ial look and comfortable proportions. j "Comparisons are we are I assured, so will not go into the ques- tion. It is enough that Bill Possum's place is firmly fixed, and he is giv- en the place of honor in all the big shops from New York to San Pr.-incis- co. He is here too, for 1 saw a small girl hugging him to her bosorn yes- terday, quite regardless of the teas- ing of an older brother who advised i hanging Billy up by his tail. She promptly scorned such treatment of her new pet, and went off to bed the pointed nose pressed lovingly against her cheek. In a corner of the room, quite forgotten, lay three battered delis and a desolate Teddy JBear. The subject has interesting possi- i bilities and speculation might be j continued indefinitely. Is the cus- I torn of establishing a likeness between the President of this great land and ja member of the animal kingdom to THE CANADIAN BANK OF COMMERCE HEAD OFFICE. TOROJTTO ESTABLISHED 1867 B.
