CARTERCAR COMPANY PONTIAC, MICHIGAN Branches at New York, Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City and Atlanta Old Fashioned Stuff I knew a kid one day Who looked beyond wide orchard lanes of white To where a fellow held the laureled way Of fame and name and fortune in the fight; A kid who heard life calling, and who turned To catch tho echo of far-marching feet Where crimson fires of glory flashed and burned Along the borders of the swarming street. I know a fellow now Who looks across gray years with weary eyes Beyond the laurel and tho olive bough To rose-sweet dreams beneath re membered skies. To fields of golden harvest and the glow Of God's lost sunshine waning to the gleam Of star-lit dusk back home, so long ago It only seems the phantom of a dream. I know a fellow who Would give life's motley fame again to bo In orchard drifts where lost winds wander through And whisper sighing from the bending tree; Who dreams at each gray dusk within his den Of old time honor and old fashioned truth, And cries to God to lead him back again And leave him with the clean, bravo faith of youth.

One day a sympathetic friend called to ee Rastus, and questioned him on how his present unfortunate condition came to pass. "Dey jes done sent me .ter jail when dey jiadn't no right ter," elo quently answered Rastus. "Dat's what my lawyer tole 'em. I wah con victed on circumstantial ebidence." "Dat doan sound good ter me, Rastus," dubiously remarked the friend, shaking his head. "What am circumstantial ebidence?" "From de way dat I understand it," explained Rastus, "circumstantial ebidence am de feathers dat yo' leave around when yo' nab got done wid de chicken." Philadelphia Telegram.

"We came into New York one morning from a New England cam paign trip," said George Henry Payne, "and the colonel invited us to have breakfast with him at one of his clubs. The colonel's fnvnrHo .breakfast food is fishballs, and this diet was accepted as satisfactory to most of his guests. I "He had taken a mouthful of flnii : ball that had been placed before him wiien he turned and said: " 'What is this fishball?' "I tasted mine and confessor! t.hnt it did not taste like those that mother used to make. "The colonel took a second mouth ful and then said: " 'It's lemon, by George!' "At this moment the waiter placed in front of him some Viennese rolls. Roosevelt reached for one, when he noticed that they were all of the highly polished variety. " 'Waiter he said, in a most apol ogetic tone, 'I may be feeling fussy this morning, but I do not like lemon in my fishballs; I do not care for var nish on my rolls; could you bring me two soft-boiled eggs without turpen tine?'
