If love could be guided by reason
If all men's hearts were true
If spring were the only season
If life contained no treason
I'd live with you!
But since the heart is foolish
And men's love mostly false
Since winter winds are ghoulish
And life not one made valse
I'll live eans vow.
A confectioner's establishment in

so popular that its kitchen has been

For The Courier
Flitting time comes at last, even for
the robin raised in a barrel. The wild
little fellow, who even snapped his beak
fiercely at me, and would not be fed,
would not be petted, showed his plebe
ian descent and lack of discernment by
simply running away, hopping through
a fence and into some dark corner under
my naighbor'6 porch. I suspect the cat
crunched his bones nicely. But the
well-bred, tame robin who would perch
very contentedly on my finger left me in
royal fashion, as a bird of the air should.
His eyes grew big with wonderment,
his whole little body trembled with
fear, or it may have been joy, at the
deed he was about to do. I, being just
a dumb animal, did not understand the
thought that showed in his dark eyes
They glowed with inspiration a sud
den, unfathomable, joyous wisdom
leaped into them. Then, without a
word, his royal highness took his flight.
His career waB begun, and I suppose that
ere this he has learned how to pull
worms out of the ground in most ap
proved spring-board etjle, has viBited
the mulberry tree, and has perhaps for
gotten barrels and the harmlessness of
the strange folks who Bit on porches.
During his very young innocence we
tried to keep from him the knowledge
of the cat. Now he must know that,
too, though perhaps it will not harrow
his little soul greatly until days come
when he himself carries fine fat worms
to yellow mouths in a tree.
There is something very wrong in the
Bystem of domestic economy known to
the birds, or at least it seems wrong.
Why, when they set out to rear a brood
of live, do they make a nest that can
not possibly hold the fledglings until
they can fly? Of course they are very
much like human parents who have
ability to rear three children respect
ably, but whose flock numbers ten. The
little birds fall out of the nest, and the
cat gets them, unlets they are very
strong of wing and limb. The human
fledglings well, Jet us not speak of
MID-SUMMER AND EARLY FALL
Mrs. C. B. Murray of Chicago is man
ager of a bouse boat that will accommo
date twelve persons. Mrs. Murray pro
poses to take parties on a two weeks'
cruise down the Illinois river, and to
make frequent stops and land excur
sions. She says: "Boating, swimming,
walking and climbing for two weeks
ought to give a tired woman new youth,
and that is what my house boat is going
to try to accomplish. If the plan suc
ceeds it will be amplified in the future;
enlarged so as to cover more ground and
accommodate more people. It promisee
to be a success this year."
