Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 4, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta OUR "STOUNG rOLK "Poor old house, falling into �Ueaav Ana ones youth and hope held war here! Ah, I'll dismount and' go Into tha poor littls room which once saw scenes at good cheer." Tying bis horse to a great tree In tha yard, Jaek entered the house and went to tha corner where was an jnpty, blackened fireplace. About that ftr*� place hla grandparents had gathered their first little ones, and there apples and chestnuts had been roasted on oold winter nights while warmth glowod within. To the rear of tha main house-which oonsialed of but one large room-had In later years boon built two other rooms of Wood. But they had rotted away, and nothing but bits of board and slender beams remained to tell of their one-time existence. Only the original one-room log houeo stood, defying Time. Jack sat on the hearth stone, his mind running back to other days. It was a balmy evening in the middle of April, and spring In that part of the world was far advanced. Trees were i leafing and early plants were begin- I nlngto unfold their blossoms. Jack went. In imagination, back many, many years. He pictured the house as Grandfather had built It for his bride. Ah, they had been two very brave young people, had Grandfather and Grandmother. They had weath-; ered many a storm together, had built up a food home; had eventually; grown to be what the world calls, rich: had out-grown the "old place."! and had made for themselves and t family a better one. But there, in that one-room log house they had atarted out, hand in hand, shoulder to ehoulder. Jack wondered how many; young couples of today had the cmlr- ! age to fight their way through hard-, ships and dangers as had dear �ld Grand-dad and Granny. j "They alone could not have weath-i ered all the storms." It was a. low. j aged voice coming from the wall I against which Jack sat. Jack straight- ( ened up'and looked behind him. -Vo one was there. "Tht.-y alone could not have endured," again said the; voice. "I and my brothers were of; great value to them. We warmed, ftd j and .sheltered them." 1 "Who are you that speak?" asked j Jack, wondering av-/naZ>>/on&I#e mHKN w* we must . ~.___... #~ speak of a lion's day Include the whole twenty-four hours, for during the night that the king of beasts doss his work. Tha lion loves a marshy country,' where the long reeds and high grass make K safe for his travelling about In Quest of his pray. In the absence of a >marshy land, he chooses thick, thorny bushes, which answer his purpose qatt* as wall. During the day he sleeps mostly, but will occasionally wake up and have a romp with his' wlfa and oubs, and M the day Is cloudy ha will roar from time to time la a discontented mood.

Whtn he came forth from their house s smile of satisfaction was on his face. "Why, Bonny, I have told yon many mHBN I'm grow'd up to be a man I'll be a wild oow-boy. I'll ride across the oattle plains, An' yelp and shout for Joy! "Or maybe I would drnther be A traveller 'round the worl', An' stop a spell at every place Where tho stars and stripes unfurl. "But maybe that would mak* me tired, An' awful sea-sick, too, A ridin' on the dusty trains. An' sailln' o'er the blue.
