THE VOICES - / heard the voice of the city .- Calling again and again ; ¦ * ¦ And into her arms there hastened Millions and millions of men . And 1 heard the voice of old gardens , Of quiet woodland ways ; But few hearts there were who would heed them In -the rush of the busy days . The cities grow old and vanish . And their people faint and die ; But the grasess are green forever , Forever blue is the sky . —By Charles Hanson Tovme , tn the Metropolitan Magazine . MY CATBIRD E . F . S . The catbird swings on the old tree bough , And forth from his bosom swell The liquid notes of his native song , Like the tones of a crystal . bell . All day he has plundered my cherry tree , The drab-cowled Puritan knave , And harshly chattered and scolded amain If a jew myself I crave . But noii ) when the sun sinks down to rest , And the shadows lengthen until It seems the earth forgets to move , And the very world stands still , A hush comes down through the waiting a , r &gt; j t The bir...

BURNING THE MORTGAGE [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 September 1908
BURNING THE MORTGAGE THE Edwards farm adjoins the one where I lived when a boy . There were three hundred acres of tillage , pasture and woodland , with a wellbuilt two-story house and two large barns . The Edwards children—Chester , Thomas , Catherine , Eunice—were my youthful neighbors and schoolTHeltCS In those days the farm was welltilled , unencumbered and prosperous ; but in an evil hour a traveling agent cajoled Jonas Edwards , the father , into buying the state right to make and sell a certain newly patented automatic farm gate , for the sum of two thousand . dollars . Edwards had a thousand dol- 1 lars in the savings-bank ; he drew out this and raised the other thousand by mortgaging the homestead . It was the old story . The muchvaunted gate proved a gate to trouble for Edwards . He was never able to sell it . But if the gate proved illusory , the mortgage was tangible . The farmer spent the remaining fifteen years of his life pay ing interest on it . _ Thoughts of the mor...

ON GRUMBLING . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 September 1908
ON GRUMBLING . Others of us can not be called grumolers or fault finders , we do many kind deeds and say many kind words , but we skim all the cream off the milk o £ our kindness . This skimming is a disagreeable habit we have taken up , but if we want our homes to be happy , restful places , we must weed out this habit just as quickly as we can . The husband comes in and asks his wife to mend his coat . Oh , you have torh yoiir coat ? You are always needing something when I am especially busy ; well , give it here . Of course she mends the coat . But she does it in such a manner that the husband feels that he has committed a crime . Now this wife does not really mind mending the clothes- ; she takes the greatest delight in sending her people out to their work looking as well groomed as is possible ; but she has the habit of making some unpleasant remark when a little favor is asked of her , and of doing everything she does in an ungracious manner . The children take their keynote f...
