PORTRAIT OF A G.!RU About whose proud and' famous name, this day, ' Are you adream? Your silken lashes seem Heavy with secrets your red lips would say: Around your placid brow , what rever ies play Their Merlin tune, In this light-hearted noon ' Of girlhood, with its green and golden May? Within your gentle, rosy-finger hands, Where lilies sleep, Great destinies you keep-. Thrice happy he who kneels to your commands! From that gold disarray, your crown, what strands Shall gleam anew Some distant day, when you Wrap round a smaller head these fillet bands! What though the stealthy years en croach, you'll wait With your slow Bmile, A brief, imperious while, Dreaming white dreams till Love smiles from the gate Then, in the darkling years, may kindly Fate This solace lend My dim eyes, and forfend That gracious, gradual end to youth's estate - W.

The infant squatted at my feet, remarked confidentially, "Nice mud, daddy," and proceeded to investigate the mud. I ignored its claims to be my offspring, and pro ceeded with the construction of my oration. Then the genial gentleman arrived and seated himself beside mq. "Delightful child," he Bald. I grunted. "Easy to see who's his father," he proceeded, glancing from me to tho child. I . started. Was this infant, to be forced upon m§? Talk about forcible feeding what of forcible fatherhood!
