The Rhyming Optimist (By Aline Michaelli.) c- Across tbe hHU, you say, they're- yins, greener pastures, fairer ways; !or their beauty you keep sighing ;hrougb tbe long and hutndrum days.

But lie was not strong and as the result "of overwork and p. chill, pneu- ..nionla set in-and in three days he was dead. Hard'Experiences' Mrs. Lloyd George was then left with the. problem of- how to bring tip three -children with nothing lo do It on but bad debts. Three days after her husband's death along came the landlord and auctioneer. The land- .lord turned her out into the wayside. the out her furniture, jhcy locked tho house up and drove came.'-tlia poor wo- man gathered her children to her and with their arms around one an- other they mingled tlieir tears. Doubt- less she thought she was entirely for- salterj, hut striding along In the dark'- ness came a lall.. strong figure who gathered them all in' his arms and 'there under the slars he lifted up his bands to. heaven and vowed thai as long as he had life ho would look after nnd prolcct bis brother's children.

Bui 1 have a sneaking notion, one by which I set great store, thai the lands across Ihe ocean cannot beat our native shore. And no hill whose distant hazes, glimmer purple through the gloam rivals this one clad in daisies, for fl holds my bearl and home. 'Tis fact that, here or yonder, things are pretty much the same, and no matter where they wander, some folks find it very Ume. Yet another fellow running right alongside as their mate may say: "My. but this is stunning; Ibis Is what 1 class as great.] You will never hear me klckjng while I'm on. this thoroughfare; couldn't ask for better picking, fiuer scenery any- where." So it's not the road you travel, through the changing sun auu hade, .whether U be dirt or gravel. climb or pleasure grade. Mow do not claim I'm lelllng any novel act or new, but the theme on which 'ra dwelling has one is :rue. You will find it seldom only where a certain roadway lies that can make It gay or lonely; fault or charm s in your eyes. If some reached .hose distant places, that far land of .heir desire, they still would find jarren spaces, every rose would have ;ts briar. Atid those chaps who al- ways hanker, for the farthest pas lures' bliss would iiud Ihere the same old canker they have ever found this. C. P.
