Our little Blue Eyes is going to bed ,
But never alone goes she;
For Dorris and Dorothy over the way
In nightgowns white I see ,
So here is a thought for your dear little
Across the street they are going to bed .
And through the town, where we cannot
They are going to bed by the score ,
Till I seem to heir, "Good night! good
Passed on from door to door.
So here is a thought for your small, curly
AH over the city they are going to bed .
And the thousands of children throughout
the land ,
As westward the sun goes fast,
Will say their prayers and climb into bed ,
Till all will be sleeping at last .
Now here is a thought for your wise, little
Thousands of children will soon be in
And all over the world, as the sun journeys
An army of girls and boys
Will don their nightgowns and say good
Leaving their games and toys .
Oh, here's a big thought for your small,
curly head :
Millions of little ones tudked into bed !

The man and his wife were living in
Galveston. Texas, at the time t the
terrible tidal wave of last year. They
were caught in the Hood and snparated.
The man was nearly drowned, carried
across the bay, and lay an invalid in the
house of a stranger for weeks. The
wife sought him hopelessly for dayB,
then donned widow's weed and wont to

The man. as soon as he had partially
regained bis strength, sought anion;;
the ruins of his home for his wife's body.
It was not there. He widened the cir
cle of his search, but never did ho tind 11
trace of her. Disconsolate, sick, weary
of life, he went to the ranch of a brother
near Roswell, New Mexico.
Chance drawing the wife to this state
a few days ago reunited this tragically
parted couple, and, happy in their re
union, they are spending their second
honeymoon on the brother's ranch.
When the Galveston tlood swept over
the city both Parrish and his wife were
at their little home. As the water rose
they clasped each other in their arms.
Then their house was lifted from its
foundations and the merciless waves
swept the husband and wife out into
the darkness, the- tlood and the storm.
The husband swam bravely, shouting
for help to the winds which whistled
their derision. His arms grew weak; be
could feel hie wife slipping, inch by
inch, from his embrace. He could feel
that his swimmirg stroke was impotent
against the waves.
Then be sank. The water closed over
him. The chorus of the winds was
drowned by the strange, harsh music of
water rushing into the ears. He choked.
He felt the breaking of his last faint
hold upon the woman beside him.
Then all was still.
When consciousness returned to Par
rish he found himself in a farmer's
house on the main land. The farmer
told him, bit by bit, of the terrible havee
the storm had wrought, and of his mir
aculous escape from death being buf
