His upper story is no doubt
A trifle out of plumb ;
Strange tilings are flying in and out
The roof is leaking some ;
To some gre&t truths the man is blind
And yet he boldly dares
To freely exercise his mind
In all mundane affairs ,
He bravely dares to plot and plan
In every race that's run ,
And thinks himself the greatest raau
That ever spiked a gun ,
And now to pops and democrats
And others I declare ,
His belfry is not full of bats ,
No insects winter there.
His heart may be surjharged with guilt
Observe I said it "may"
But what he knows he knows he knows
And , knowing , says Ills say.
So if he Would , in making laws ,
With other statesmen mix ,
I'm here to help his blooming cause
Or perish trying. BIX
State Journ ;
Easter Sunday , this year , will fal
on March 30th. The Lenten seaaoi
commences on Ash Wednesday , si :
weeks before Easter , and this make
the date Eebruary 12. So it is only i
little more than three weeks until al
the social gaiety must cease. Date
for social events are being arrangec
The rule forfixing the date of East
er Sunday is rather a complicated
one. Commonly , it is said to be the
first Sunday following the fourteenth
lay of the moon , or full moon , attei
thu vernal equinox , or the beginning
af spring. This rule applies in tnh
instance , spring commencing OT IJch
23. It will thus be seen that Easter
Sunday could not come much earlier
in the year taan it does this time ,
tn practice , this rule cannot befol
lowed exactly for the reason that the
noon would be full at different times
in various parts of the world , so that
Easter would follow a day earlier in
: he eastern hemisphere than in the
Accordingly an ecclesiastical or
deal moon is used in figuring the
late. This was settled at the Coun-
; il of Nice , in A. D. , 325 , when the
restern usage was adopted as univer-
al in the Christian. The exact date
s based on certain chronological cy-
les , the progress being a com plica ted
ne. The Dominical letter of the
ear 1902 is E , and the Roman indica-
ion is 15 , With a certain value giv-
njto the Dominical letter , the prob-
: m is complete , and the date is ar-
ived at exactly by mean of certain
ules. But it is enough to know that
iaster falls on March 30 , and that
ient begins on Eebruary 12. The
