Greenfield, Ind.,' Aug,, 17.--(By
Central" press, )-r-Thia little Indi
ana, town has at last realized, its
dream..'. s,; . . . - ,;
, For years H has wanted to erect
some sort, of lasting memorial to
its favorite son, James Whitcomb
Riley, th,e Poet who is often called
"America's Robert Burns."
AnaV. now the boyhood Play
ground of Riley is beingthrown
open as a public park. - ;
The 40-acre tract includes the
'old swimminn.hole" made ,fam;
ous in ioetry by the Hoosler laur-
The para: Is along Brantrwlne
creek, which was the favorite
haunt of Riley when a carefree
youth." . " ' -,v ;
"A' poet of the people, his own
people, was r James Whitcomb
Riley." says Greenfield. "Dream
ing their dreams, singing : their
songs, sharing' their Joys, sorrows
and fancies, he touched ' these
things with the' wand of his great
genius and enshrined them in the
heart of the nation, '
! "He was ; to American poetry
what .Mark" Twain was to Ameri
can prose. .
"One measure or his success,
but by no means the greatest, may
be. gauged by the fact that he was
one of the few Americans who.
having devoted their lives to po
etry, was able to gain a' fortune
by it. " . "i .' .' ' ' -
"Not only in America, but in all
the world, having children claimed
Riley, as their own.
"All the sorrows, the happiness
and the joy of existence, have been
exercised in his pages, and count
less thousands have laughed and
cried over them. .......
"He is the most widely read and
best beloved of the singers of
"Riley never . married, but he
was a lover of children, whose
spirit he divined so intimately."
Perhaps some of the "Literary
Critics" do not agree,' but, Green
field observes, what, deos it mat
ter what the critics think, if the
children love Jim Riley?
Looked like a baby river that
laying- fast asleep, x' y j .
And the gurgle" of the, worter
