THE BOY I USED TO BE
I'm going home to see the folks,
Just one week from today.
I know just how the place will look
And know just what they'll say.
I'll sleep in my old wooden bed,
And I'll wake up, at light,
To find me the boy I used to bo
Has come back overnight.
I'll lie till mother calls, "Will, boy,"
And "Billy!" father'll yell,
"Say! Breakfast's ready hustle
"What ails ye can't ye smell?"
That will be Sunday morning, so
We'll go to church, we three,
Dad marching on a bit ahead
And ma behind, with me.
There'll be a straight-out sermon
No paltering with the Book '
And dad will drink it in, and wear
His stern old "Sunday" look,
But mother, if I catch her eye,
She'll half smile back at me,
And slide along a gumdrop to
The boy I used to be.
I reckon if It comes to pass
That Judgment they foretell
I'll plead three things I was
And that she loved me well;
And that I kept my lifetime clean,
(So far as lay in me)
That, yearly, I might chum with him,
The" boy I used to be.
Inez G. Thompson.
Good morning, Brother Sunshine;
Good morning, Sister Song,
I beg "your humble pardon
j If you've waited very long.
I thought I heard you rapping;
' To shut you out were sin,
My heart is standing open;
Good morning, Brother Gladness;
Good morning, Sister Smile,
They told me you were coming,
So I waited on a while.
I'm lonesome here without you;
A weary while it's been.
My heart is standing open;
Good morning, Brother Kindness;
Good morning, Sister Cheer,
I. heard you were out calling,
So I waited for you hero.
Some way I keep forgetting
I have' to toil and spin
When you are my companions;

Irrigated Semi - Tropica! Lands
La Lomita Tract 27,000 Acre
These lands, now selling at from $50 to $100 per acre, are
producing crops of Alfalfa, Sugar Cane and Cotton during
the summer months, and crops of vegetables during the
winter, netting more money per crop, than the land now
costs, per acre.
In addition to the foregoing, there are wonderful possi
bilities for the production' of Oranges, Lemons, Grape-Fruit,
Nuts and Vines, which promise to rival the immense pro
duction of California.
A climate tempered by the Gulf Trade Winds, making a
delightful spot for an all-the-year-around residence, or ah
ideal location for a winter home, free from snow and ice--fully
equal' to the most favored portions of this or foreign
We have here, the unusual combination of:
The most fertile soil. . - . . ,
Abundance of water for irrigation,
A climate unsurpassed.
The cheapest labor in the country.
These four conditions exist only in the two counties at
the southern extremity of Texas, further south than any
other part of the United States.
Lands under less favorable conditions are readily selling
at $500 to $1,000 per acre in Washington and California.
We therefore confidently believe that, in the near future,
this property will command a higher price than any lands
in the Union.
We cordially invite your correspondence and investigation.
