When Mitchell Young went from his work f <
his dinner , last Thur da > , he found his lion
filled with neighbors and friends who had gatl

mind him that it was his biithday. Mr. Your
was not in the least exiK-eting a celebration i
his honor and contributed his part to the plea
ure of the occasion by being really Mirprisei

Mr. Young with a handsome rocker , the recirj

gratitude and how < leeplhe was touched I
this token of esteem from friends and neighbor
A very pretty paper holder , match-safe , an
several articles of wearing appaiel were al-o r
ceiveil and much appiociatod. Si > eecheswei
made by a number of the guests and the follo\
jng poem , written by Mr. . Young , was plea
ingly read by Mrs. Slntts :
In the state of Illinoion a bright May inon
The hero of our tale was born ;
A little brown-ejed lad was I.e ,
And fair for all tlio world to see ;
A mother's pride , a father's joy
How dear to all this biown-ejed boy !
As bis mother knelt by his cradle-side ,
' What .shall we name the boy ? " s.he cried ,
And the father's bosom with pride did swell
As lie answered. "Let's call him Mitchell. "
And so Mitchell the name become ,
And following that is the surname Young.
How very quick the season's fly !
And childhood's jears roll swiftly by !
The baby grew as a babj might ,
( Hut we'll not tell . \ou about his height , )
Hut onlj insist that he was good
As the jears sped on to > oung manhood.
The parents toiled both early and late
Trjing hard to make both ends moot ;
Still thej were happy and had good health.
And the father was anxious for more wealth :
He wanted a home for each of the boys ,
Hut land was high in Illinoi-- .
So he said to his w'ife one day ,
"There's plenty of land out west , they si > ,
In Nebraska , six hundred miles or more ,
There's prairie land as smooth as the floor :
Wo can each take a home-toad all we need-
And Vncle Sam will give ua deed. "
The mother's teardrops quicklj start :
Ho\\ can sliefiom the old home depart ?
How can she ever make the change
And start anew in a land so strange ?
Hut she made answer , with wistful gaze ,
"I long for green and plea-ant way ?
And I do not want to complain ,
Hut wont it be hard to live on a claim ? "
Hut she saw that the husband's mind was se
And she -aid in her heart she'd not regret
The dear old home to leave behind
If there was something better to iind.
When the children were told they were fllh'
with delight ,
And each had plea-ant dreams that night ,
For they dreamed that they were going
Whore there's milk and hone\ flowing :
Win n- the -uninier"- . gentle breeze
Wa\c- the gold upon the tree- .
And then Mitch and Frank and Mo-e
Straightwa.\ began to pack their clothe ? ;
Co.it- and pants and -hiits and socks
Were packed into a great , big box ;
Into two wagons loaded all they posses-ed ,
Hitched on their teams and started west.
Day after _ day on , on thej went ,
Sleeping at night beneath a tent ,
Up again at break of daj
Once more pur-iiing their onward way.
Thev were on the road a verj long time.
When di l thej come ? Spring of seventy-nine ,
Along Heaver yallej thej tnuoled one day ,
And that evening the father was heard to sa ;
"No use going further's I see ,
Tin-land is good enough forme ;
This is the \ery place we seek. "
( They were camped close by the creek. )
The boj's- were out earlj- next morning.
And before noon all had claims adjoining ;
Thev built sod houses and settled down ,
Kach on his homestead , not far from town.
They experienced neither a sweet nor bitt <
Hut all thing * , good and bad , mixed up.
Of the re-t of the familj no more I'll mentioi
Hut once more direct yonr attention
To the one with which we started out.
Yon want to know more of him , no doubt.
"Well , since he's been here -core of years
We'll call him one of the pioneer- .
He reached the jears of mid-day life
Without taking to himself a wife ;
Fact is , lie thought hene'er _ would w"d.
Hut alwajs live alone instead.
He wouldn't have a woman strong
To lead him by the no-e along.
Hut at last he tired of patches and strings ,
Huttonlo clothing and similar things ,
And , as he looked at his own de-olation ,
Declared single bles-edne-s full of privation.
And , regardlo of vows made heretofoie ,
Said no longer he'd be a bachelor.
It's nearlj two jears since he took a wife
To be his companion all through life :
Hut for this I'm sure he's not to blame
For mo-t of you have done the same ;
And 'tis riirht , they saj , acio-s life's tide
For man and woman to go side by side.
In town lie's built a COZA home
And thinks he'll take life as it comes ,
So on life's .s'immit we see him stand
Surrounded today by many friend-
\Vith be-t of wishe- and right good cheer
To this old-time friend and pioneer.
Vnd now mjtorj's neailj done.

S The peddler is here , now. He will work the fr
JS. citizens by showing fine goods as samples ,
accompanied by a flood of sunshine talk. You may think his recom ft
mendations are good = = investigate them. He is here today , somewhere
else tomorrow. He will promise to give you two dollars for one if you
want him to. ( He is out for his health. )
If.you want to buy a Diamond , buy it of some one you know : some
one you can find if you want to ; some one you know is responsible. n
Don't pay out a cent until you get your goods or know what you are
getting. The fakir laughs after he catches a customer , because he is
not afraid to do them and do them hard. He never expects to try it on
4 the same one again. After he fakes you he uses your name to fake
I some one else. On account of the many lapses in the Diamond Schem
er's club , he will give you $160 for $100. ( Of course you get all the
lapses ; he does not want them. )
When you want to buy a good article , patronize a home dealer.
You get to see just what you are paying for before you buy. You have a
a good assortment to select from. When you buy of a home dealer you
have no delays , no express to pay , and other inconveniences to contend
with. BEWARE OF THE PEDDLER OR CANVASSER !
