Till: DAWN OF SOCIALISM.
The light ot day Is breaking.
O'er the eastern hilltops high,
And the shades of night receding,
Vanish from the morning sky.
And as the mighty shadows
Uy the sun are driven far,
8o shall greed and wrong and profit
Nevermore earth's pless'ures mar.
For the light ot love Is breaking
O'er the bonds ot sin and shame.
And Its beams shall fill the nations
With a steady glorious flame.
It Is coming, surely coming,
And tho dsy Is close at hand.
When. Instead of strife and hatred.
Lovo and truth shall fill the land.
Then Join the band of workers.
Who stand so true and brave
Aud strive for tho rule of Justice
And your fellow men to save.

Awake, ye worklngmcn, awako.
Cast the scales from off your eyes,
See the web that's woven round you,
Hear your suffering brothor's cries.
It Is time to rouse to action,
You have slept by far, too long.
Illsa up In your strength and
Vote for right Instead of wrong.
Ye are like so many cattle.
Driven on from day to day,
For tho woalthy are your masters
And in reverence you obey.
You are forced to labor steady
For your dally cruat ot bread.
While the Idle, la their mansions,
On dainty tare are ted.
And the freedom that you boast of.
And the liberty you claim.
The protection and ihe Justice
All are yours, alone In name.
This Is not what God Intended
Should reward all workers true.
And He's waiting now. to aid you,
If you'll only dare and do.
I heard a prooeher telling
In a crowded church ono day.
Of the poor bonlshted bcathon
In tho countries far away.
He told of the cruel cuatom
Of enslaving the'r fellow men,
Ot tho beat'ngs oft that are given.
And the tortures fine and again.
He told ot tho women and children
Oppressed by fashions so vain,
Of the superstition and darkness.
And their greed for money and

Instead of our dear Lord and Savior.

THK FATK OF THE TITANIC.
(Tune: Auld Lane Syne.)
On a clear night -In tho balmy
When the breezes softly blew,
And the sliver radiance of the stars.
Gleamed white o'er the waters bluo
Across the ocean so wide snd deep,
Like a bird on the billowy aea
Tho Titanic came with two thousand
uU' . . . u
For quean of the sea was she.
Yes. smoothly she sailed tho treach-
.. crous sea,
With her cargo of human freight.
jNe'er heeding the danger lurking
Nor the warning, 'till 'twas too
Twas a monster ship on her maiden
And she sped o'er the waves like
While alt on board -were merry and
Leaving sorrow and care behind.
All feeling secure In the strength of
Seeking comfort and worldly Joy;
When all ot a sudden she struck
And It wrecked her there llkea toy
Then sorrow reigned In place ot
When the hidden band wrought
There loved ones true, In close
Met their fate la the aea below.
Others parted In tears at the vessel's
When the life boats all were filled;
And some sang "Nearer, My God. to
Till tho song the cold waves
O. let us take heed from this warning
Where rich and poor met one fate,
And trust not the riches that perish
, with rust,
Dut turn before Its too late.
Let us live for the cause that Is holy
For our fellow men humble and
To rid the world of sin and or strife
And make It moro holy and pure.
