We can double the output of eggs and

We can accomplish all this without any
great effort on our part. In the name
of “The Land of the Free and the

position, tip)soil to every poultry ruiset;
in the state of Texas, to at least treble

The Best Known Boy
in the World
[pROM China to New York, and around the world the other way, to London,
£\ there is one boy who is known and loved above all others—and that hoy i i
—IIn hint each marv knows the image of his own boyhood, of its droams
and its restlessness, and its wildness, and its mischief, and vayuc striving
to be decent, and ambition.
In Mark i wain’s Tom Sawyer each man sees the renewal of Ids own youth.
In Tom Sawyer each woman secs the son she loves. And why not, for Tom
Sawyer is really the story of Mark Twain’s own boyhood.
'flic Chinese mandarin chuckles over that classic incident where Tom
made th^ other boys pay him for doing his work. The little Russian trembles
on the dark hillside where he overhears Indian Joe plotting to rob the widow.
Tho.German in his trench tunnel, with death all about him. Catches his
breath asdic reads of Tom and little Becky alone in the tunnel.
Wherever men read’, they shiver with Tom in that graveyard that fearful
midnight when, by a new made grave, he saw a man murdered.
And each man who reads knows his own mother in Aunt Polly, and thinks
how lie too must have been a trying child; and he wishes he had a chance to
do it all over again and make it op to a long-suffering and patient mother. In
Tom Sawyer there is universal boyhood, there is laughter and tears. But there
is something bigger, ’ Not only those tlwngs w hich are difficult and abstruse yre
literature. A thing so joyous, so laughable as
loin Sawyer must be literature-^and the man
who wrote it, is one ‘of the most universal in his - -»
appeal of the whole Western Hemisphere.
Another Lincoln in Spirit
Mark Twain made us laugh, so that we had
no time to see that his style was sublime, that
lie was almost biblical in simplicity, that he was
to America another Lincoln in spirit.
To us, to every one in the United States, he
was just Mark Twain — well-beloved, one of
ourselves, one to laugh with, one to go to for
cheer, one to go to for sane, pointed views. Now
he is gone; the trenchant pen is still. But his
joyous spirit is still with us. Mark Twain’s smile
will life forever. His laughter is eternal.

In his work we find all things from the ridic-
ulous in “ Huckleberry Finn ” to the sublime of
“Joan of Arc”—-that spiritual book of serene and
lovely beauty. A man who could write two such
books as 1 Huckleberry Finn” and “Joan of Arc”
was sublime in power.
AH that is lovable and daring—that is spec-
tacular in American life, lu- has expressed’. All
that is impatient with oppression; but above all,
that intangible something that makes America
what it is, the world find:, in Mark Twain. He is
our Mark twain lie i; the great American.
Europe so recognizes hiui. Asia so knows him.
