In canyons deep, comes home to me when

And wild hoofs beating the prairie sod,

O for the feel of a braided rein and the !

The North Wind'a Mustering.
From the dark of the boreul seas.
From the midnight m<irn of the pole,
To the sands of your southland leas,
"Where sweltering cities roll;
From the still of the Caves of the Cold.
To the resonant marches of men.
By the wind that runs, I summon my sons
To the aims of the north again
To the thips of the scurrying main
Where the stern wheels southward
To the lands of the Sun and the Rain,
On the wings of the dark I corno;
And nevor thy Love, nor the lure
Of thy Fame shall make thee free.
For a sail or a noul. at my rallying roll.

Ye have fathomed the fines of the East
And the reach of the West ye know.
And the wilds of the Earth, as the beast.
Ye have tamed to the whip and the hoe;

Ye have faced—Ye have failed of the
And the drums of the North, they shall

The Broken Vase.
This vase, where the white rose dies,
By touch of a wing was oleft.
Grazing It, song bird wise;
No sound revealed the reft
The slight, the secret wound
Has ^rown from day to day,
Healthily creeping around
Biting the crystal away.
Its dew no more prt>tects
The rose, that hangs forgot.
Dying—yet none suspects.
"Its broken—touch It not.
A hand we love may w ound
By touch in gentlest guise,
Then, with no sign, no pound,
The heart breaks, and love die®.
T%e world see^ not, nor knows;
But the heart a one wounded spot
Weep life blood, and deepens and grows;
"TIs broken- touch It not.
—From Bully Prudhoinme, by Curtis Hid-
den Page. In the Metropolitan.
A Little While Ago.
There comes a song In summer days,
A low and tremulous refrain;
"tts murmured In the leafy ways
And in the dropping of the rain.
It tells of pleasures all complete.
The Joys of which only youth may know,
And swings into this burden sweet.
" "Twas such a little while ago."
Bach weed bloomed delicately fair.
And life was only made for song.
Tfce world was filled with treasures rare
That waited for the brave and strong—
And all are brave when love is young.
And all sre stronic In hope's first glow;
How stoutly was the ohallenge flung
To fate, a little while ago
And whatsoe er the years may bring—
Bo sing the zephyr and the rain—
TV popples left all withering
Are dearer than the garnered grsdn.
Though toll and care through field or mart
Plod on forgetfully and slow.
Youth's sweetness llngere near the heart
And aeems a little while ago.

was characteristic of Spencer's hand-
writing, and that It was a clever, al-
though not a skillful forgery.
