WITH THE COMING OF DAWN

Dawn comes softly and pleasantly
over thr country fields, and If it loses
something of Its chsrm, tnrougn ib

haps most appreciated there. In the
hills the dawn comes gayly, stopping
behind each peak to make itseu more
beautiful, scattering color everywhere
and playing with its own reflection in
the deep waters of the lakes.
Tn thn Hrv afreets the dawn comes
swiftly and bravely perhaps because
the night Is ugly there and so Deter

is not so pleasant as dawn in the coun

Perhaps it is only the uninitiated
who feel the terror and the fascination
of the city streets at night Perhaps
the initiated know that the fascina
tion is not true and the terror not real.
Perhaps they are more fascinated and
more afraid than anybody. The unini
tiated do not understand.
They wonder why there are so many
people in the streets; why that old
man stands alone on the corner;
where that woman and the two chil
dren are going; where all the automo
biles come from; why, with so many
people and machines in tne street, la it
all bo strangely silent?
It is the hour before dawn, and
everywhere the earth lies quiet The
night street is silent as though
ashamed before the day. The young
men loanng on tne corner nusn ineir

on the curb speak in whispers. The

It is no longer dark. Neltner is it
light The night still hides between
the high, empty buildings. A pigeon
croons wistfully above the street its
voice rising to a fuller note as it reels
the breath of the dawn. Strangely
enough other bird voices break the si
lence. The wearv men and women on
the sidewalks are stirred by the same
songs of welcome that are sung in tne
fields and the hills. The birds are al
ways ready for the dawn. And it comes
