By Rory O’Moore
When life was young and I a callow youth,
I watched the trail that led beyond the rirn
And swore a child's vendetta on the bonds
That held me fast, while I so lonfftd the dim
Ui.trodden paths 1 saw to venture, and to trend
The distance shore, all gleaming, gaily flushed—
By ever wanton fancy to be led
Each day, with all forbidding voices hushed,
Toward that fair isle, Adventure, and to there.
Breaking the last grim bond about me tied
By precedent of centuries—there to share
In every freedom 1 had been denied—
To stalk sweet Romance in her very lair
And win consent her guerdon hence to wear.
That vow, with fervent ardor, 1 have kept
And down the open road before me hied;
A restless spirit, like a fitful breeze,
In every quarter of the world I’ve sighed.
And said, not here the isle I seek, not here.
But ever other roads awaited me.
While hope, reviving, made the way seem clear
And my goal in the constant distance I could see.
Till, yesterday, familiar looked the road;
Deep within me something moved and woke;
And 1 stood gazing on the mean abode
Where I had grown weary of my yoke.
And lo, I knew my search, at last, was o’er;
For there stood Romance by the sagging door.

The report of the revolution in Russia, with the prob
ability of the abdication of the Czar, came as a surprise at
this time, although it has been pretty well understood
that autocratic government was approaching its downfall I
in that immense empire. At this writing the Czar still
sits on his throne, but he is merely a figurehead, as he has
been for a generation, while the “strong men” of the Rus
sian nobility gave him his orders. That there has been a
split among the strong men and that the pro-German par

The daily report that “war has been declared” by the
United States against Germany, or by Germany against
the United States, has become a chestnut, but that a state
of war actually exists does not seem to require any formal
declaration. It seems that we are “into it” at last, and
if we be there is only one thing to do—to get in and fight
as hard as we can. That we are all ready to “stand be
hind the President” when the time comes, goes without
saying. That a man has dared to call his soul his own
during the preliminary chewing of the rag, does not nec
essarily argue any traitorous inclination, and the Herald
would like to call the attention of some of his esteemed
contemporaries to the fact that there is one editor in this
field who was born in the state of Maine so long ago that
one of the first things he remembers is seeing the flag
hung union down across the maples in a neighbor’s yard
when Lincoln was assassinated, and that he considers his
brand of patriotism as good as any there is. In those
days, in the old Pine Tree State, “ Democrat” was a term
of approbrium, but it is not so now, and Woodrow Wilson
is the President of all Americans.
