mo tell tho tale
Mv father oft told
JL V A story of the days
Hope fled und misery
Dtood stark and urlm before that band
Of men beyond compare
The tale of Washington the grand.
Who crossed the Delaware!
One Christmas nlRht. long years ago.
When shrilly cold winds blew
And through the darkened air the snow
On frozen plnloni flow
A little band of patriot souls
Stood bravo and fearless wlar
In Iclncss and anger rolls
The fretful Delaware.
Nor Ice. nor storm nor cruel blast
Can hold these heroes back:
They have rrsolved thedlo Is enst
For freedom's cause! A track
Of blood upon the snow they've left
From shoeless feet and bare;
Of all lift's comforts they'ie bereft.
Beside tho Delaware.
But "Onward! Onward!" Is the word
Their bravo commander speaks.
When thro' the storm his voice Is heard
Knell uon of freedom seeks
To do his bidding; put asldo
Is every wo; and care
There's vlct'ry o'er the Icy tide.
Across the Delaware.
On through the gloomy stormy nlcM
With hardships dlro they -ope
"For Ood and native land and rlghtl"
Their watchword and their hope;
Until at last all cold nnd dark
Thry greet the morning glare;
Safe thro' tho tide they've reached the
Across tho Delaware.
And then nine miles beyond they go.
With steadv solemn tread
' To whero thn hated Hessian fos
Bleep In their drunken bed.
Aroused from dissipation's doze
In wild surprise they staro.
And conquered give their swords to
Who crossed tho Delaware.
This children. Is the story truo
Of noble fearless men;
And may Its lesson be to you
A guide and solace when
Storms hover noir my brave grandson
And you. granddaughter fair-

along the law's or the white turnpike.
As she n cared the town however the

just a trifle condescending. The rea-

who were repairing a bridge ocr which

that he could not contnln himself.
Aunt June gathered up her lines and
clucked to the white mule "(lit up

The mule started off rather briskly
but not too briskly to let Aunt Juno

Aunt June's anger hntl cooled some

which she did Iter trailing. The but-

was slow the merchant was patient:
for Aunt Juno's butter wns of the best

There were 40 cents to be traded out

ACOUT DRINKING WATER.
No Invariable Hutu us to the IJnautltj
l'tiople bliould Cotuuuio.
According to Prof. Allen we should
drink from one-third to two-fifths as
many ounces as we weigh in pounds.
Therefore for a man weighing 1CS
pounds there would be required 50 to
C4 ounces daily or from one nnd one-
half to four pints. This the Journal of
Hygiene regards as a very indefinite un-
svvcr. The amount of water required
depends on the season of the year the
amount of work douu and the krihd of
food eaten. In hot weather we require
more than In cold because of the great-
er loss through the skin though this is
in part made up by the lesser amount
passed away through the kidneys. If u
man labors very hard be requires more
than If his labor Is light. A man work-
ing In a foundry where the tempera-
ture is high nnd the perspiration pro-
fuse not Infrequently drinks three or
four gallons daily. If the food Is stim-
ulating and salty more watnr Is re-
quired than If it Is bland. Vegetarians
nnd those who use much fruit require
less water than those who cat salt fish
and pork and often get nlong on none
except what is in their food. In most
cases our Instinct tells us how much wa-
ter to drink far better than any hard or
fixed rule. For ages they have been ac-
quiring a knowledge of how much to
drink nnd transmitting that knowl-
edge to descendants and if we follow
them we shall not go fur out of the wny.
It is of more use to us to know that pure
water Is essentlul and that Impure wu-
ter is one of the most dangerous of
drinks than to know how much of it Is
required dally. If one lives In n region
where tlie water Is bad. It should be
boiled nnd put nwny In bottles well
corked in an ice chest nnd In addition
one should eat all the fruit one can 11
fruit agTees. Fruit contains not only
pure water but salts which are needed
to carry on healthfully the functions ol
life. Medical Tlme-
