(By M. G. Churchill.)
When I was a babe at mother's knee,
I was happy and free from harm;
'Tvvas there I spent my happy days,
While I was reared upon the farm;
I knew no cares of the world,
No troubles could I see;
If I knew then what I know now,
How happy I would be.
Put naturally then, as I grew up,
My thoughts began to roam;
The pleasures of the world I knew
Was everything but home.
I often heard others speak
Of what they chanced to see;
The more I heard, the more I thought;
The same appealed to me.
'Twas then my mind would wander,
No pleasures could I see;
Home, Sweet Home, no longer
Seemed what it used to be;
The world was full of pleasures,
In the city they were free;
Put Home, Sweet Home, is grander
Than all the world to me.
Sometimes in youth you'll wander,
Sometimes in youth you'll stray:
You'll think home has no pleasure;
It seems worse from day to day;
Put remember when you leave it
There will be sure a time to cone
When your thoughts run back to thos?
Of Home, Sweet Home.
It's true we have some hardships,
If not. what would life be?
If we had no cares and troubles
Could we the pleasures see?
They say life's what you make it,
Put I cannot quite agree.
For I know if I could have my choice
It would be Home, Sweet Home,

be four numbers on the course, and
all are good ones. There is no one
movement that can do more for the
benefit of a town than a good lyceum
course. These numbers will be given
in the Puls-Gansemer hall, and will
