NORMAN DAILY TRANSCRIPT—NORMAN, OKLAHOMA
My Arcady. R
i weary of my air castles
And tlieir dizzy height
My heart goes homing earthward
Somewhere upon this solid earth i
My Citadel .shall be
And there I'll rear my castle walls 1
And make my Arcady.
1 want no stately villa
That well night house a king;
1 want no towers nor turrets
Nor any such vain thing;
A simple, vine-clad cottage
Were quite enough for me,
Where I might welcome kindr d houIs
To share my Arcady
(Editor's Note: Owing to the ill-
ness of our capable society editor,
Miss Dorothy Bell, today's column
must he curtailed except to thj ex-
tent of those articles which have
come in. It is to be hoped that Miss
Bell will be able by Monday to take
up her work again.)

profitable business, or the I AKINfi
