Who chases and races through all
With his eyes ever on the main

Why he all tho shocks never stood.
But he failed, for he paled and he
quivered and quailed,
When it came to the test "Making

Of smiles and of wile3 of Dame
In his dreaming and scheming may
catch a faint gleaming,
Of a goal that his eyes will entrance.
But he pales and he quails, and his

For he sighs and he cries at the van

The fellow who's ready and (sturdy
Who hustles and rustles and learns;

That fellow success quickly earns.

He will work like a Turk, and a duty

A Seasonable Fabie
Mr. Jimplecute, the eminent defend
er of national honor and pro-ponent
of the "Greater America" policy, had
just finished his pleasant task of as
sisting his children in their Fourth
of July fireworks exhibition. Mr.
Jimplecute was yery warm, very pa
triotic and very happy. Had he not
assisted in celebrating the natal day
of the great republic that was-' dedi
cated to human freedom, equal rights
and representative government?
Mr. Jimplecute walked down to the
gate which adorned the fence sur
rounding his fine mansion, thinking
to catch a breath of fresh air before
retiring to his slumbers. To his sur
prise he noted a small, dark-complexioned
man peer'ng through the orna
mental Iron bars of the fence.
"What are you doing there?' sharp
ly queried Mr. Jimplecute.
"L was merely watching the ex
hibition," replied the stranger. "It
was very fine."
"Ah, you .enjoyed it, did you?" asked
the grate; ;Mr. Jimplecute.
"Very,, much,, sjr,' replied the stran
ger, "ufc. might I make bold to ask
you the occasion for such a demon
' "W-h-at," stuttered." the. surprised
Mr. Jimplecute. "You don't mean to
say that you do not know that this is
tho glorious Fourth of July?"
"I am well aware of the date," re
plied the stranger courteously, "but
what has that to do with this great
display of fireworks?"
Mr. Jimplecute was so astonished
that for a few moments he was
speechless. When he recovered the
use of his tongue he proceeded to
"This is the anniversary of our na
tion's birth; the natal day of this
free and glorious republic; conceived
in liberty and brought forth by the
blood of our revolutionary sires. It
marlcs tho striking of shackles from
the limbs of free men. On this day the
Declaration of Independence was
signed, the document that set forth
the incontrovertible fact that all men
are born equal and entitled to life,
liberty and the pursuits of happiness.
It was, sir, the greatest document
ever penned by the hands of mortal
men. It gave representative govern
ment to the world and sounded tho
death knell of monarchical rule. Have

Yes, I heard of the Declaration o In
"And where was that, may I ask?"
queried the puzzled Mr. Jim-plecute.
"In Manila, sir. I heard an Amer
ican soldier refer to is as a blanked
incendiary document, and he prohib
ited my people from reading it."
Mr. Jimplecute wanted to say some
thing, but before he could definitely
decide on what to say the small man
with the dark complexion bowed
courteously and disappeared in the
gloom of the evening of the glorious
