When Stars Are In the Skies
When stars are in the quiet skies
Then most I pine for thee
Bend on mo then thy tender eyes
As stars look on the sea
For thoughts like waves that glide by
Are stillest when they shine
Mine earthly love lies hushed in light
Beneath the heaven of thine
There Is on hour when angels keep
Familiar watch oer men
When coarser souls are wrapped In
Sweet spirit meet me then
Thero Is an hour when holy dreams
Through slumber fairest glide
And in that myfitic hour it seems
Thou shouldst be by my side
My thoughts of theo too Bacred are
For dayllghtB common beam
I can but know ther as my star
My angel and my dream
When stars are in the Quiet skies
Then most I pine for ihoe
Bend on me then thy tenflcr eyes
As stars look on the sea

Helen Harvey was to spend her va
cation at her aunts cottage in She
boygan where the wash o old Lake
Michigan should take the place in her
ears of the buzz of a department
She was full of anticipation as she
sat in the northbound train Two whole
weeks to be out of doors and free
and Tom was coming up by Sun
Dear old Tom She thought of
Decoration Day when he had told her
his dream of fitting up a little flat
and making a home for her some
She had given him no answer as
yet but had promised to decide be
fore Sunday
He was her kind friend but like
many other young girls she still
waited for the hero of her dreams
and started out on her little outing
with all kinds of delightful possibili
ties in her mind of meeting the un
Meanwhile Tom stood behind the
counter and measured off laces and
ate cheap lunches that he might buy
a box of Allegrettis for Sunday even
Helen tried to read but enjoyed
more looking out at the dense
woods through which they were
passing Suddenly she was minded
to look at her purse and see
if her trunk check and the two crisp
five dollar bills which she had bought
for return fare and extra expense
were safe
The check had slipped out of sight
and in searching for it she held the
bills between her fingers
The train turned a sharp curve just
then and a strong current of air
swept the car Instantly the money
fluttered from her fingers and out of
the open window
Passengers and trainmen were kind
and sympathetic and the conductor
gave her a stop over check at the next
station that she might walk back and
look for the money and come on by
a later train
She remembered that it was just at
the curve and the conductor said it
was about two miles back so she had
some hope of finding it
But the tears would come as she
thought of the precious money so
hard to earn and so hard to save and
of how she must write home for
In spite of her trouble she was in
fluenced by pure air and beauty of the
scene to stop to pick some wild roses
for her belt
But as she neared the curve she
became absorbed in her search so
absorbed indeed that she did not no
tice a gathering storm until it burst
upon her
The only thing to do was to push
through the underbrush and seek
shelter in the dense woods Among
the pines it was almost dry and her
footsteps were noiseless on the carpet
of needles
A little way in she stopped startled
for she had come upon habitation a
shelter made of boughs against a rock
Regarded each other Is silence
a smouldering fire and standing be
fore it all looking more startled than
herself a man young tall fair ath
They regarded each other in silence
but the girl felt no fear for she knew
that she had met her hero
The man spoke first Are you a
wood nymph or from whence come
you She told her story sure of
sympathy Too had indeed he said
kindly but will you not accept my
rude hospitality Please como be
Sylvia for my woodland bower
And Helen under the spell of tender
blue eyes cast away prudence and let
herself be made comfortable in the
leafy shelter while her host busied
himself with replenishing the fire
She had a delicious sense that she
was having a really romantic exper
It is very beautiful here she
said Are you camping or fishing
as she caught a glimpse of a skiff
drawn up on the shore and almost
concealed by boughs
Both he answered uneasily hut
you must not ask me about myself

and sky
boat and unless you believe in me I
shall go away in the boat and leave
you alone in the storm and not pre
pare for you a luncheon of fish and
berries as I plan to do
The fire blazed cozily and the man
built out the leafy roof that she might
be quite dry
The queen must be safe and hap
py he said Helen had never been
called a queen before but she liked
Disappearing for a few minutes he
came back with lisn and berries on
large leaves and a can of water He
cooked the fish deftly over the blaze
and Helen produced from her lunch
box sandwiches olives and cake at
which he exclaimed with unfeigned
delight Such a merry meal it was
and before Helen knew it she was
telling all about herself It is so easy
at nineteen to talk of ones self when
melancholy sympathetic blue eyes are
lavishing tender glances upon one
If I come to Sheboygan may I
come to see you he asked Oh
that charming air of deference It
was just as she always knew the hero
would bo
I believe the rain is stopping she
said at last I wish it might rain al
ways he murmured lying lazily at
her feet This brought the warm
color into her face and looking up
she saw that the sun was beginning to
Really I must go the storm is
quite over she said rising He rose
too and looked at her with grave
sadness saying It will be lonely
after you go but if you will allow
me I can take you almost to the vil
lage in my canoe you are not
No hesitatingly But she went
sitting quietly in the boat while he
stood in the stern and bent to the
Both felt the beauty of the scene
and with that greatest proof of per
fect sympathy were silent
The boat grated sharply on the
sand He sprang out and helping her
took her hand holding it for a mo
ment to his lips
I want to thank you little girl
he said for trusting me as you have
to day It is good Tor a man to be
trusted Think of me kindly some
times but speak to no one of me and
as a pledge I ask for one of these
He touched the roses in her belt
With trembling fingers she gave
him one Then smiling sadly he
pointed down the road to the station
Good bye he said and God keep
Helen saw little of the road for her
tears and it was through a mist that
she looked back once and saw him
standing like a picture againBt the
bluo of lake and sky waving his cat
to hor
At Sheboygan her aunt met her and
chlded hor for being careless about
the money In hor heart Helen won
dered if she had lost or gained
The summer days passed swiftly
but when alone she thought of hit
hero and sometimes of Tom who
would have been quito wretched had
he known how ho suffered by com
parison and how slender his chances
were becoming
But on Sunday he came in holiday
attire and drove up after dinner with
as he said the best singlo rig he
could get at the livery to take Helen
driving They drove to the falls along
the pretty lower road each feeling
the constraint of an important ques
tion to be decided
Tom being more nervous talked
more Funny thing at a little sta
tion down the road he began We
stopped for water and there was such
a crowd that I got out to see what
was up They had just caught n
murderer a man who killed his wife
He was a fine big fellow a college
man they said It seems she was
much older than he and not his sort
but anyway hed married her and
shed nagged him ever since and fin
ally she said something about his
mother and he struck her she fell
against something and died later
from the effects Meanwhile he got
away Last week the detectives got
trace of him here but its only the
last few days hes been seen poking
about the bushes near the track and
early yesterday morning he came into
town to post a lettor They tracked
him into the woods where hed been
hiding but he eluded them and put
out into the lake in a canoe A little
way out the boat struck a sunken
spar and sank He knew how to swim
but they think ho was hurt by the
spar for after a few strokes he went
down They brought him back intc
the village dead and there wasnt a
thing in his pockets but a withered
rose He had not at all a bad face
but its queer what a man will do
when hes roused isnt it
But Helen was silent and looking
into her pale face Tom exclaimed in
consternation Why did I tell you
about the horrible thing We have
happier things to talk about and
He drew her to him unresisting as
ho whispered You have not forgot
ten dear that you are to give me my
answer to day What is it
Very low it came Yes
The next morning the postman
brought Helen an cnvolope in which
were two rain washed five dollar bills
Lavender Leaves
The wavins corn was green and gold
The damask loses blown
The bees and busy spinning wheel
Kept up a drowsy drone
When Mistress Standish folding down
Her linen white as snow
Between it laid the lavender
One bummcT long ago
The slender spikes of grayish green
Still moist with morning dew
Recalled a garden sweet with box
Beyond the oceans blue
An English garden quaint and old
She nevermoie might know
And so she dropped a homesick tear
That summer long ago
The yellow sheets grew worn and thin
And fell in many ji shred
Some went to bind the soldiers wounds
And some to shroud the dead
And Mistress Standish rests her soul
Where graves their shadows throw
And violets blossom planted there
In summers long ago
But still between the royal rose
And lady lily tall
Springs up the modest lavender
Beside the cottage wall
The spider spreads her gossamer
Acrops it to and fro
The ghost of linen laid to bleach
One summer long ago
