A HODMSCST INST AH Ca Maud Muller on a summer's day Was helping to put the wheat away. And she sighed sometimes for distant lands Where the girls don't assist the harvest hands. The judge rode by a man o note To see how her father meant to vote. And he craved a drink and she coyly laughed At his compliment as he gazed and quaffed. His heart beat fast. But he said "good day." Then remarked, "Oiddep!" and pursued his way. She watched him go and she softly sighed, 'Tis a lucky lass who becomes his bride." And the judge sighed too with his brain awhirl "Maud Muller's a stunningly handsome girl." The years passed on and the usual fate Came to those who mix in affairs of state. Maud's family labored from dawn till dark As the price of wheat reached the dollar mark. And her bright eyes shone with a fresher charm, As she lifted the mortgage off the farm. While the judge, he owned with a dismal sob, Was a politician -without a job. Washington Star. tH...i..l. ., ..... ...,..... i-fr .i 1 .. ...
