THE BOY WE LOVE.
Oh, for a glimpse of a natural boy—
A boy with a freckled face,
With forehead white ’neath tangled
And limbs devoid of grace.
Whose feet toe in; while his elbows
Whose knbds are patched all ways,
Who turns as red as a lobster $lien
You give him a. word of praise,
A boy Who’s born with an appetite.
Who seeks the pantry shelf
To eat his “piece” With, resounding
Who isn’t gone on himself.
“Robinson Crusoe” reading boy,
Whose pockets bulge with tiflsh,
Who knows-the use Of rod and gun
Afid where the brook trout splash!
It’s true he’ll sit in the easiest chair.
With his hat on his tousled head,
That his hands and feet are every

Easy going republicans and even
those of other political beliefs, are
apt to wonder at the strife, irt the
political ranks of the republican
party in this state. The average
yotet is Wondering why, if, “so
much depends on standing shoulder
to shouldfeF, And" maintaining the
gold standard at all hazards” in this
state, the republicans aid like to
split over Mitchell. But when the
strife is over and the smoke clears
so the thing is seen as it is, it will
be found the fight was not over
Mitchell at all, but that thè trouble
was between Simon,Scottand Corbett
on one side and the more honest
class of politicians on the other.

his click or the republican party.

lose control, knifing and all other
kinds of dirt known to the crafty
