Tho Littlo Boy is sad and lono
And not inclined to play.
Ho talks in soft and tender tono
To toys ho's laid away.
For ho has faced tho question old
Whose answer none can tell
And as he waits, clear, soft and cold
He hears tho tolling boll.
Ho misses from tho usual place
The form ho loved so true;
Ho fails to see one smiling face,
Ho hears no "Howdy-do!".
In vain he turns to Brer B'ar,
And Brer Rabbit's dumb;
Brer Fox says naught when he asks,
Don't Undo Remus come?"
Tho Littlo Boy is sad today
And mourns his playmate dead.
He does not care to laugh and play
With toys around him spread.
Across the hills tho cortogo sweeps,
The band plays soft and low;
And Little Boy in silonce weops
Ho loved his playmate so.
The animals that told queer tales
With Undo Remus' tongue
Aro dumb forever; Little Boy
Your heart with grief is wrung.
You ask in vain the whence and why,
But we who've older grown
Can but confess we've no reply,
And you must grieve alone.

thousand employes of the Consolidat
ed Sand Co. are idle, owing to a

as ho has been In business and Dr.
Hall Is accounted one of tho best
business men in tho west.
Dr. Hall's democracy Is of the old
Jeffersonian-Jacksonian brand, and
when the buglo calls to political bat
tle he is always ready for tho fray.
This well known fact gavo rise to
a good natured thrust at him during
the meeting of a well known Lin
coln literary club some months ago.
A practicing physician of Lincoln
read a paper on materia medica, and
in the discussion which followed the
physicians present found themselves
warmly opposed by a number of lay
men. Dr. Hall defended his broth
er's paper in a vigorous address, but
whon he finished a newspaper man
present roso up and said:
"Doctors do not take their own
medicine, and they have little faith
in drugs. I know, because my fath
er was a physician. Now there is
my friend, Dr. Hall. When he was
practicing medicine up in Saunders
county ho had a system that always
produced the best results. When a
republican camo to him Dr. Hall
prescribed calomel and quinine and
told the patient to continue the
treatment until he felt results. But
when a democrat came Dr. Hall
would hand him a copy of 'The Life
of Thomas Jefferson,' and say: 'Read
this carefully and bo healed.' "
And in the laugh which followed
the paper under discussion was side
