The Old Songs
"When day is done, and o'er the world
the gentle twilight drops;
"When rush and roar have died away
and busy traffic stops;
"When spicy breezes borne by June
from Araby the blest;
When "not a wave of trouble rolls
across my peaceful breast"-1-I
love to sit at ease and hear some
sweet-voiced singer sing
The good old Zion songs of yore, which
fondest memories bring.
"Since I can read my title clear"
the tears come to my eye.
But through the mists I seem to see
those mansions in the sky.""""
When evening shadows cool and deep
have fallen o'er the -world,
I have forgot the cares of day when
"fiery 'darts were hurled."
And sitting in my old arm chair be
neath the rustling trees
It seems that I am borne away on
"flowery beds of ease."
A clear voice sings the good old songs,
and in my thoughts I stand
"On Jordan's stormy banks," and
gaze on far-off "Beulah Land."
Fond memories cf other days the old
songs bring to me,
When "Now I lay me down to sleep"
I lisped at mother's knee.
When purpling shadows limn the west
with gold and silver sheen,
"Sweet fields beyond the swelling,
flood stand dressed in living green."
The echoing music of the songs rings
outjupon the air
The happy promise writ of old,
"There'll be no sorrow there."
All troubles flee as flee the days, and
with a restful sigh
I gaze "O'er Canaan's happy land
where my possessions lie."
Old days, old friends, com9 trooping
back from out the shadowy past
As o'er my soul those dear old songs
''their web of memory cast.
Those good old songs, those dear old
old songs! When I am callfd to go
I want to hear their melodies in
measures soft and low.
"Just as I am without one plea," I'll
lay me down to- sleep,
For "Jesus, lover of my soul," will &till
His watch care keep.
And when I wake to end'.ess day on
yonder shining shore,
I want to hear those grand old songs
of Zion evermore.
Those grand old songs our mothers
sang J O, sing them o'er to me,

A Fellow Feeling
A few weeks ago this department
contained a few rambling remarks on
the .subject of singing, and it was
therein stated that the writer did not
think much of salaried choirs or the
modern way of conducting church
music. A number of letters commend
ing the stand taken have been re
ceived. The liberty is taken of quot
ing from' one received from a south
"I am an. elder in one of the most
'up-to-date' churches in this city, and
every Sunday I sit in my place and
hear some girl scream and shriek,
doing the solo stunts, or else the
choir will sing a 'hanthem,' as Pat
called it. Some yell loud, some yell
low, and when tlfey get through
about the only thing one understands
is the 'amen, a men, a men.' I
am always glad when they get rid of
that last 'a men.' If some good
old sister were to get up and shout
during that performance it would
stampede the audience and she
would probably be 'pulled' for dis
turbing religious worship. But there
is no danger of a shout under the
spell of that kind of singing. At any
rate it never has happened and I am
not afraid to venture the prediction
that it never will. I endure that kind
of singing thinking that possibly .the
procession to which I belonged has
gope on and left me behind. But
when I read tho 'Few Rambling
Thoughis' I knew there was at least
one man who knew good singing
when he heard it. When you swing
around" the circuit with your old-fashioned
concert company, be sure and
include P In your Itinery, and you'll
find me right up in the amen corner
ready to join in on the chorus."

The Missing Link

We immediately noted that our
question was an ombarassing one, but
before we could frame an apology our
host said: ---
"The portrait hung there once. We
removed it for cause."
"Ah!" wo exclaimed, our tone of
voice Intimating that wo wanted to
hear more but were too polite t' nk.
