BY GERTRUDE ROBISON ROSS
T know that Love can never die;
A And so I walk all trustfully
And take my fill of earth and sky
Nor question what life offers me.
No hand can tear my dream apart
While love lives in my Mother's heart.
The grail that shone for holy men
Shines just as white for me; and so
I dream their old dreams o'er again
Nor dread the dark, nor fear the foe.
There shines a light that cannot blur
Deep in the tender eyes of her.
I know that I shall never fail;
The ills that doubt and fear have made
May march on me while others quail
And find me safe and unafraid.
For all the strength of all the lands
Lies irt my Mother's fragile hands.
ON CIRCUS DAY
Many Thousands Throngh
Tents of Barnes Show at
Circus day is over!
And the night brings with it no
harrowing tates of accident or
crime to darken the memories ot
the day. Though 8000 people
crowded to capacity the large tent
of the At O. Barnes ciru yester
day afternoon and many turned
away, everything passed off In or
der and in the evening when 600ft
more visited , the tents the man
agement was equally satisfactory
save for report of two offenses.
Chief of Police Verden Mof titt
and hfs corps of workers are
largely responsible for the excei
ent manner in which the street
traffic was handled.
In reply to complimentary re
marks regarding his work yester
day and that of his men, Chier
Mof ritt said:
"We did our best. However,
it is much easier to handle a
crowd than it used to be. Teopic
are willing to cooperate and when
asked to do a certain thing, they
do not stop and argue about it.
They Just do as they are asked.
They know there is a reason why.
And undoubtedly prohibition
had much to do with a lack
of crimes being committed."

which has been set aside in rev
erence to motherhood and noth
ers. both those who are living
and thop" who now are but sweet
memories. The custom of re
