He opens the door and walks right

in. Through the open door comes
the smell of something good cook
v.itli blue eyes that have smile wrin
kles, iu the corners, just like his own,
and crinkly dark hair, just like his
own, too, bending pver the stove.
She is just tasting the something
that smells so good, w ith a spoon.
When she sees the big man in the
door she tastf sv so quickly that she
l.urns her tongue! But she can .use
it just the same, even if it is burned.
She runs .to the big man and says,
"And is that yoursetf, now, Larry,
darling? Snre, I'm that glad to see

The big man had just time to saj',
"Sure, Eileen, you were always a
great one for burning yourself. Do
y,.u remember that day at Grannie
Malone's" when out into . the
kitchen tumble a little Larry and a
little Elileen and a baby. They have
heard his voice' and they fall upon
the King of the Crossing as if he
weren't a king at all, but just a plain,
They take off his cap and rumple
hif hair. They get into his pockets
and find some peppermints there.
And the baby even tries to get the
silver star off his breast to put into
"Look at that, now!" cries Uncle
Larry. "Get along with you! Is it
trying to take me off the force, you
are? Sure, that star was never in

More Truth Than Poetry
By JAMES J. MONTAGUE
THE CHILD AND THE MILLIONAIRE.
Reemtlr at Lenox a imU boy .pureed a nickel offered him by John D. Rock.
' As old John D. sat on the porch
To take the mountain air, v
He saw a mildvnd gentle child
' At play beside his chair.
His fingers in his pockets delved,
- And presently withdrew.
A glittering and radiant thing
A nickel, bright and new.
"Take this, my child," the old man said,
Leave off your idle play,
Jnvest this gift with careful thrift, -
And you'll be rich some day.
With such a handsome property,
You'll learn the love of toil,
And may, like me, at' eighty-three,
Possess the Standard Oil."
The little child held up his, hand,
Palm outward in alarm,
And, deeply piqued it shrilly Mirieked,-
"Free gifts do naught but harm.
Though of the proletariat, -
I have not sunk so low
" That I'm content to take a eent
Without a quid pro-quo!"
Now honor to the little child
That valiantly did spurn
As worthless trash a sum of cash ,
It knew it could not earn!
And now our simple tale is done,
We reach the moral which
Concludes it, viz. : That urchin is
Not destined to get rich!
WHICH HE DOES:
Apparently Villa would rather fight than be president.
THERE'S A LIMIT.
In Lenine's claim of ultimate' world domination he says nothing
about conquering Ireland.

seizes the baby and sets her in a safe
corner by herself, gives her a spoon
and says, "There, now you can be
cutting your teeth on that."
And when the children have quite
worn Uucle Larry out he sits- upon
the floor, where they have him by
this time, and runs his fingers
through his hair, which is standing
straight up, and says to the mother,
"Sure, Eileen, when you and I were
children on the old sod we were
never such spalpeens as the likes of
these! They have me destroyed en

are, or Irish, I want to know?"
