How well I recall her caressing touch As she frr-ntly fondled them o'er: Her face so sweet sometimes grew sad. Though she prized them more and more. We children loved the treasures old. And knew by heart the stories they told. Thf re is a picture in its rase. Of grandmother's soldier brother; An or.ly son was lie and brave. And tender to his mother.

V i i NO CAUSE OF COMPLAINT. Powell Clayton of Arkansas Dis counts the Colored Brother's Woes. Ex-Gov. Powell Clayton of Arkan sas thinks the matter of color discrim ination will have no effect upon the candidacy of any one before the Re publican Convention. "So far as the Arkansas delegation is concerned," says the Arkansas leader, "there will be absolutely no grievance. There are but two men of color on the delegation. These were assured the same quarters as other members here ?lt the Planters', but they preferred to go among their own friends. "The colored men really have no just complaint to make, and I think they will recognize that fact, when they come to think. Quarters fortheir del egations, I am told, were not sought until all the choice places in the city had been engaged. Certainly they cannot now expect that discrimination will be made in their favor, when it would not be accorded the most prom inent white man in the country."' Two Lives Saved.

As the writer was talking to a re 'tired colonel in front of an uptown hotel k few days ago, a very handsome woman passed them, and the writer's eyes went after her almost as fast as the colon l's did. "By zucks!" exclaimed the writer, "isn't she pretty?" "Rather," admitted the colonel, "but beauty is something you can't most al ways sometimes bank on, especially the betuty of woman's face or figure." "Well, it's always good to look at, any how." "Of course, and sometimes it's lasting nd actual, but oftener the very pretty woman is not the most attractive." "Still, there's a charm in beauty," in sisted the writer, straining his eyes around the corner to get a farewell view of the fleeting vision.
