Mara Fine Clothes
Registration for Primaries
Light in Coos County The
My hair Is gray, but not with years,
My locks grew gray through many
Of dubious thoughts and fears.
My shoulders bowed, but not by
Of toil; I have a slinking gait,
Like the small boy who softly goes
To wash the jam mark from his nose;
I am a candidate.
Of every man I seek to know,
"Is he a, friend or mortal foe?"
I yearn to learn from every one,
"Now are you 'pro' or are you
I eye each man I meet askance
And mentally compute my chance,
Searching my memory's archives dim
To find If e'er I injured him.
There's Smith, a man I well could
Egad, it gives my heart the blues;
I often wake In icy sweat
It seems I never can forgot
How one day in the past afar
I gavo poor Smith a bum cigar;
I Avonder if a chance there be
That he still holds a grudge at me?
There's Johnson well, I chanced to
His St. Bernard upon the street;
1 gavo Its head a pat or two
It darn near gnawed my trousers
And worst, I do not know, to boot,
If Johnson saw mo pet the brute.
If not my friendly bit of play
Was so much labor thrown away.
Oh; thoughts that prey upon my
How bitterly the past can blind!
When I impounded Simpson's shoats,
I lost nt least ji dozen votes;
And, spanking Jackson's little lad,
I spoiled my chances with his dad.
For each one of these littlo knocks
They'll fix mo at the ballot box.
Each smiling youngster that I meet,
Paternally I stop and greet,
And, gazing at his vacant phiz,
I tell the kid how bright ho is;
But when he's gone a horrid doubt
Stirs In my brain and struggles out
(Alas, too late) reminding that
I should havo kissed that littlo
How hard tho row I havo to hoe,
As through tho long campaign I
LIko captured thief, I slink and
As humplo as the writhing worm,
Aim do my lovoi best to seo
I get no voter soro at me.
Forsooth, It has no feather weight
tiio uimien of a candidate.
Misinterprets Mrs. Pennock's
Advice as to Climbing
Heights of Fame.
"We cannot reach Heaven by a slnglo
But must build the 'ladder by which
From the lowly earth to tho vaulted
And mount to its summit round by
The above quotation from Oliver
Wendell Homes', "Tho Chambered
Nautilus," partly expresses tho basis
of a stirring talk which Mrs. C. A.
Pennock delivered to tho students ot
the colored Marshfleld school, which
she conducts at her home, yesterday.
Mrs. Pennock wanted to instill in the
minds of tho pupils tho necessity of
ambition, and stick-to-ltlveness to
reach the higher j""'"s of the world
and get the best out u. life by climb
ing tho heights of fame.
It impressed the pupils all right
and stirred up their determination
to study and learn. After the talk
by the teacher, who is greatly ad
mired by her students, everyone
worked hard until recess.
Then came trouble. Eddie Fong, a
Chinese lad, took the talk too liter
ally. In his Oriental mind, raising
to higher things meant to elevate
himself and his only conception of
this was to climb. Immediately he
sou upon a nearby tree as a means to
attain In his end and surpass his
follow students in the race. He was
making rapid progress and was
highly jubilant until ho reached the
uppermost boughs of the tree which
were too frail to Biipport him.
Dr. E. Mlngus was called to attend
him. A badly sprained wrist, a
broken finger and a few other minor
injuries are now Eddie Fong's handi
caps in the race upward but he has
afforded an example that will prevent
tho other pupils from following too
literally Airs. Pennock's remarks on
climbing to fame's dizzy heights.
