Umaha Homes in INeed of
Relief During Hot
"Pleas, mamma, may I have a
drink of milk?"
Lisped by baby lips, this simple
little pica would be vain in many
Omaha homes were it not for The
Bee's free milk and ice fund. . ,
For there are many hemes in the
city too poor to have on hand this
necessity of child life, so the Visiting
Nurse association finds. . ?
Vln such home's, and for such help
less little ones, milk and ice are pro
vided daily throughout the hot sum

More Truth Than Poetry
I know that the manifold millions -Which
prominent persons possess,
Are a burden of care that is grievous to bear
And bring only grief and distress. " .
I frequently hear them complaining
That fortune is liard to endure, .
A id wishing they might share the simple delight
That alone can .be known by the poor.
And I've wondered, if sorrow increases i
As bonds and investments accrue, ' ,
Why they cling to. their store, and keep on making more
Yet somehow or other, they do.
I know that a statesman holds office
At a terrible price to himself,
That the ungrateful state lays the man who runs straight
With a sneer of contempt, on the shelf. ,
I've often heard statesmen asserting
In voices they scarce could control,.
That the .struggle and strife of political life "
Destroys a man, body and soul. y.
And I've wondered, if such is their feeling '
That they ever hold office at all .
Yet the very same men will be running again
For the very same jobs in the fall.
' . '
I know that the lot of an author'
Is more than uncommonly tough; . ,, , . , ' : -He
has few delights, has the person who writes.- :
And nobody pays him enough. .
Great authors will frequently tell you
They wish they had learned to be crooks
Any life they'd prefer, so they frankly aver,1
To wearing their hearts out on books.
And I've wondered, if authors arc martyrs
Why they do not speak out, loud and strqiig,
And say that the pen they will not lift again,
For I notice they write right-along!
