In the sweep of the silver ileio:
Bhe took mc away from my garden homo
And the old time friends I knew;
Awav from the fold of my ciimson clan
Through a hallway, dark and cool,
"Where she burled my thirsty, drooping lips
In the depths of a crystal pool.
Bhe brought me forth in the twilight shade
With a svtile, as her red lips pressed
Against my own, and her eyes ncre bright
As she placed my head on her breast;
And together vie wandered forth again
Where tho moon, danced through the
And tho breath of my clan came back to me
On the sweep of the twilight breeze.

When out from the moonlight clear
Another came up the winding road
With an old-time song of cheer;
And side by side on the rustic bench
They sat, where the moon shone dim,
And when ho left for the road again
lie took me axoay with him.
Be opened a dusty book one night
Where I had lain through the years;
And his eyes, half-closed in the loticsame
Looked out through a mist of tears;
And he kept mo there till tho gray dawn
The shadow awav with its gleams;
"Ashes of roses" heard him say
"Ashes of roses and dreams."
Is It necessary that everything In a

Those who aio shaking their heads tragi

That while Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit
and Cleveland are chopping away at one
another around the first ten day? of Sep

with the Mackmen, tho Nationals and the
Yanks. By that time thoy should hae

There me n number of reasons for this
action but the most liiipoltnnt one Is that
the It.irkfoid Tennis Club has In pist yeilM

a tournament on entrance fees alone, and
the ni.ipjorlty of tho members cannot nffoid

It Is too bad that this fixturo should go

tournament for the public pirk plijcrB pos
