My hair Is gray, but not with years, My locks grew gray through many a day Of dubious thoughts and fears. My shoulders bowed, but not by weight 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 'con'? 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 use, 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 meet His St. Bernard upon the street; 1 gavo Its head a pat or two It darn near gnawed my trousers through; 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 mind. 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 brat. How hard tho row I havo to hoe, As through tho long campaign I go! LIko captured thief, I slink and squirm, 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. Exchange Misinterprets Mrs. Pennock's Advice as to Climbing Heights of Fame. "We cannot reach Heaven by a slnglo bound But must build the 'ladder by which wo rlso From the lowly earth to tho vaulted skies And mount to its summit round by round." 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. T,r ! J I! I"rl J!'
