Tommy was very proud of his pen

he counted over the colors carefully,

When commerce between this country

business depended almost entirely upon
Importations. Toys of a certain kind

The American toy man Is resourceful,

of either of those countries the toys will

YOUTH AND AGE
THEKE'S not a Joy the world can give like that It takes away
When the glow of early thought declines In feeling's dull decay:
'TIs not on youth's smooth cheek the blush alone which fad63 so fost.
Rut the tender bloom of heart Is gone, ere youth Itself be past.
Then the few whose spirits float above the wreck of happiness
Are driven o'er the shoals of guilt or ocean of excess:
The magnet of their course Is gone, or only points In vain
The shore to which their shivered sail shall never stretch again.
Then the mortal coldness of tho soul like death Itself comes down:
It cannot feel for others woes, it dare not dream its own;
That heavy chill has frozen o'er the fountain of our tears.
And though tho eye may sparkle still, 'tis where the Ice appears.
O, could I feel as I have folt, or be what I have been,
Or weep as I could once have wept o'er many a vanished scene:
As springs in deserts found seem sweet, all brackish though they be,
Po midst the withered waste of life, those tears would flow to mc!
COURTING'A SPANISH GIRL
PROCEEDS ON ODD LINES

the process In courting proceed on such,
unique lines as In Spain. In no othof

unmarried girl of good social position
never walks In tho street unless accom

If tho lady Intends to respond, she will
presently make an appearance -on thrt
balcony and enter Into conversation with)
him. He ma"y even talk to her when,
she goes out, and her chaperon will turn
a. deaf ear when the lady coyly throw
replies over her shoulder. In this some

If Independent inquiries made by parent

For months the bashful couple will
