Ail Honest Boy's TIcwartl. .
The following little story from
Success Sragazine telling the reward
that came to a newsboy who was hon-
est and faithful is a good one for all
boys to read:
At the state Democratic convention
"held in Charlotte N. C which was
in session for a week a little boy
eight years old. Cicero Alexander by
name sold one of the delegates a pa-
per. The gentleman gave him a dol-
lar and the boy not having the ne-
cessary change went away- to get it.
When he returned the gentleman had
gone into the hall and could not be
found. The boy after hunting vain-
ly for some time burst into tears.
Someoae suggested that the boy go
upon the rostrum in the convention
hall and tell the chairman which the
bov at once did.
Chairman Parsons took him by the
hand led him to the front of the
stage and requested that balloting be
suspended for a few minutes. He
then explained that the boy desired to
return to someone 95 cents in change
that was due him. The gentleman
arose in the rear of the hall but be-
fore he could say anything 2000 dele-
gates many of whom had been accus-
tomed to call out "no change" on the
ballots when their respective coun-
ties were called took up the cry in
unison and yelled for ten minutes"Xo
change!" At the conclusion of the
yell they crowded toward the ros-
trum. One delegate took the Ititle
fellow's big straw hat and put into it
a half-dollar. This was followed by
nickels dimes and quarters until
$19. .'ij was it" his hat and the boy
A delegate yelled ".Mr. Chairman
I nominate that boy for state treas-
urer." He was informed by the chair
that as a candidate for treasurer had
already been nominated his motion
was not in order. Another delegate
then said "I move that the boy be
nominated for chief page in the next
general assembly of North Carolina"
and the motion was carried unani-
mously. Thereupon the chairman
told the boy that he must make a
speech. Walking to the front of the
rostrum he bowed low and said
"Gentlemen I thank you" the only
speech during the convention that
was noted for its brevity.
A Hope and a Fear were wed one day
By the grave of a happy hour;
A dead faith's knell was the marriage
And tlie ring was a withered flower.
And one of them died and one was
To live thro' the days forlorn.
And there by the side of a Hope that
The world's Orst Tear was born.
A Rose and the Sunshine were mar-
ried one day
By the shore of a meadow sea;
The wedding words were the songs of
And the priest was a rambling bee.
The lover sun touched a lifted face
As fair as the dew-wet morn ;
And as the Rose blushed red at the
things that he said
The world's first Kiss was born.
A Dream and a Duty met one day
In the midst of a busy mart.
And one held a rose from the garden
In the Land of the Loyal Heart.
But Duty looked on up a cross-
The cross of the Sanctified Thorn.
And there by the bier of a Dream that
Th? world's.first Smile was born!
If power were mine to wield control
Of Time within my heart and soul.
Saving from ruin and decay
What I hold dearest. I should pray
That I may never eea&5 to be
Wooed daily by Expectancy;
That evening shadows in mine eyes
Dim not the light of new surprise;
That 1 may feel till life be spent.
Each day the sweet bewilderment
Of fresh delight in simple things
In snowy winters golden springs
And quicker heartbeats at the
Of all the good that man has wrought.
But may I never face a dawn
With all the awe and wonder gone.
Or in late twilight fail to see
Charm in the stars' old sorcery.
Irish Witty Before Foe.
Col. Nugent commanding officer of
tie Irish guards at the annual dinner
of the Windsor and Eton chamber of
commerce told a atofy of an' Irish
soldier in the last war.
At dusk ol a day throughout which
they had been lying under heavy flrS
an officer crawled up frith orders for
the battalion to assault upon which
the Irishman got up shook himself
and said: "And whoy not?"
On another occasion when a maa
screamed at the loss of a finger on
the battlefield a sergeant shouted to
Urn: "Hold yer row yer cowardly
skut; there's a mon over there who'
lost his head and he hasn't said a
' How It Might Work Out.

Growing Three Crops of Equal Pro-
portions on Same Land at Same
On the farm of Burress Bros. near
San Benito there is now growing up-
on the same ground three different
crops. Last winter the first crop to
be planted was cabbage this crop be-
ing almost harvested now. Between
the cabbage plants on the ridges are
planted cantaloupes planted this
spring which are beginning to "net"
and from which ripe melons will be
I shipped within a few days. Between
I the cabbage rows is planted cotton
the latter being planted about the 1st
of April; Brownsville Herald.
I The harvesting of two and some-
j times as many as three crops from
I the same land is no longer considered
j phenomenal in South Texas but in-
stances of three crops of equal pro-
1 portions growing at. practically the
! same time are somewhat rare and in-
I deed novel. However with the proper
I efforts at fertilization the series
should prove anything but detriment-
al to the soil and at the same time
yield in an abundant manner. Gal-

It is evident judging from the vote
for school trustees recently that
socialism as an organized political
movement is not strong or gaining
much strength in Waco for only nine
votes were polled for the three social-
ist candidates. The people here don't
know or care much about socialism.
And yet to tell the truth there is
much" that Is attractive in the theory.
Tlie name is against it though. Lots
qf people think of socialism as really
akin to anarchy. This is altogether
erroneous. Socialism stands for the
