Works of Henry W. Longfellow
Among the poets whose lines
are most often used for musical
setting, Longfellow ranks with
Goethe, Heine and Tennyson.
As a child, music had always had
an active part in the atmosphere
of Longfellow’s home life. As a
youth and as a mature man, he
frequently attended concerts and
was many times moved to tears at
these performances. He liked the
music of the past better than that
of the future. Extracts from his
journals and letters quote him as
saying, ‘Music is the universal
language of mankind” and another
time “Music is the prophets art ”
"Among the gifts that God has
sent.” ‘‘One of the most magnifi
cent” He was particularly fond of
Beethoven’s music. Among his
many musical friendB were Ole
Bull, the noted Norweigian violin
ist and composer. Some of Long
fellow's best known works which
have been used for musical settings
in songs, operas, cantatas, etc. are
his “Stars of the Summer Night,”
“Good Night, Good Night Beloved,”
“A Psalm of Life,” “The Song of
Hiawatha” and other Hiawatha
works. “The Wreck of the Hes
perus,” “The Courtship of Miles
Stand ish,” and many others.
Truth is the highest thing that
man may keep.
Full wise is he that can himself
Honor is purchased by the deeds
How poor are they that have not
All the world's a stage and the
men and women merely players
They have their exits and have
And one man in his time plays
Reading maketh a full man, con
fidence a ready man and writing
an exact mm.
He that has light within his own
clear breast may sit in the center
and enjoy bright day. But he that
hides a dark soul and foul thought
benighted walks under the midday
sun* himself is his own dungeon.
The mind is its own place, and
in itself can make a heaven of hell
a hell of heaven.
Jack:—“Hey, what’s the big idea
painting your car red on one side
and blue on the other?"
Jim:—It’s a great idea. You
should hear the witnesses contra
dicting each other."

FEW husbands can understand
why a wife should turn from a
pleasant companion Into a shrew

You can say " I'm sorry" and

ing through" with I.ydia E. Pink
ham’s Vegetable Compound. It
helps Nature tone up the system,
thus lessening the discomforts from
the functional disorders which
women must endure to the three
ordeals ef life: 1. Turning from
girlhood to womanhood. 2. Pre
paring for motherhood. 3. Ap
proaching "middle age.”
Don’t be a three-quarter wife,
take LYDIA E. PINKHAM’S
VEGETABLE COMPOUND and
Oo ’’HmlUug Through."
