The entertainment furnished a
nice variety of sentiment , humor ,
pathos and homely hospitality.
The long and intricate drill giv

pleasing and well received num

The ladies of the Methodist aid

patronized it so liberally , '

When the Wheels of Time
Last Friday morning the wind
was blowing from the north and
continued , Saturday , Sunday ,
Monday and Tuesday with clouds
and threatening weather. Sunday
a fine snow began at early dawn
and continued all day. melting al
most as fast as it fell. The weather
was cold enough Sunday night and
Monday night to freeze the plum
blossoms which had already come
oiio full blast , and many flower
beds about town were blooming.
The leaves and buds on the trees
are frozen and nature seems to
have forgotten herself.
The weather had been warm for
three weeks and gardens were
mostly planted. The birds flitted
here and there and the fishermen
had been making good catcher of
black bass , crappies and trout.
When the wheels of time turn
backward and unrelenting winter
comes howling again to remind us
that stoves should be kept up un
til the middle of May , we wonder
if Dame Nature hasn't forgotten
tLe buds and blossom she Ivul en
couraged to break forth.
The sighs and wails of mankind ,
because of their mistakes , may
take some comfort in l.he thought
that they" are not alone in grief if
Dame Nature should relent and
see the error of her way , but there
is little comfort in that thought.
The burden seems to fall upon
To blunt the prongs of all the wrongs.
Though courage often fail u > :
To suffer woes from all our foes
And bear the ills that ail us.
It is our lot to no forgot
When we have crossed the river
The other shore for evermore
To sizzle or to .shiver.
Then while we roast they cannot boa t
That thej- can e'er escape it.
For where we go they will also.
No matter how they .shape it.
Their songs immune are not in tune.
If the- should sing their praises ;
I wouldn't-budgeon what they judge.
Who sanctiiies their phrases
Composed by Gussie Graeff tor Viola Helen
Urosius. barn June 21.1905. died April 19. 'OS :
One dear Easter lilly has dropped and faded.
One sweet baby voice has fled :
One fair brow the grave has .shaded.
One dear little playmate now is dead.
She has gone to heaven before us.
Hut she turns and u aves her hand.
Pointing to the glories o'er us
In that happy spirit land.
Cut you must not feel no thoughs of sadnesst
Sweet Viola is happy now :
She has knelt in heartfelt gladne.ss.
Where the happy angels bow.
