Whn once voice seenn to you more sweet
Than any other volej ou know
do slow, my friend, so slow I
Kor brightest ejes have oft betrayed,
And sweetest voice of youth and maid
Tho very falsist things have said,
And thereby wrought n ileal of woe 1
do slow, my friend, go slow I
Whin you're convinced you nre a poet,
And, wishing a'l the world to know it,
Call on some editor to show It,
Your verses full ot glow and blow,
do slow, my friend, goilow!
Tor muiy none lias done the some,
And thought to gr.i.p the hand of fame.
And jet lias never seen tho samo
In prlat. And why waste-baskets know I
do iloiv, my friend, go slow I
When ou lo greed for monej jleld,
And long tho mlg'ity ponerto wield
Thai's always found In gold in II ild,
With senseless pomp and prldo and show,
Oo slow, my friend, go blow I
For thousands, tempted by the glnro

Sjt for the thief. An 1 now despair,
H'gret undslumo havobrcujht them low s
do Blow, my friend, go slow I
Tho good old earth Is ncer wrong;
K ich ot her works takes J ust so long i
Months pass bctoro a happy throng
Of daisies la the meadow,
do slow, my friend, go slow!
And spring gives life to summer's llow'rs,
And summer's sun and summer's show'rs,
Prepare the fruit for autumn's bow'rs,
And autumn frost brings winter snow i
(So, slow, tdy friend, go slow!

cians were playing u waltz, and playing
it well i only strange to say there was a
nine among them, which came piping in
with its shrill, persistent little treble in a
inaiiiiei' distractive to Dick's over sensi

that the only thing in the world worse
than a llutc in an orchestra was two

of music. Xevertlieles-i, as long as he
was there lie might as well dance, and,
looking around for familiar faees,h'H lirst
glance fell upon a brown-eyed maiden
whom he h(l met at a party only the
week before, and whom he had admired
with tho guarded and half-supercilious
admiration of a veteran society man. In
another minute they were on the floor
contending with their fellow creatures
for a little room to whirl around in, and
seemingly successful in their struggle,
until a slight lurch sentlheni rather sud
denly against another pair of dancers.
"That was stupid, wasn't it" said Dick
as they slopped to take breath after the
