THE VOICE Ot THE WEST OF THE WORLD
The West of the World
Is the Best of the World.
Mother Memory’s motto revealed to Man.
From time immemorial, since time first began:
Go West! With the Moon and the Sun
“The Star of the East” ran the race we must run.
The Best of the West
Is the Will of the World.
’Tis the Will of God in the hands of Man
To conquer—to labor— to build! tis HIS plan.
Go West! and be Free Men and true.
HE made it and blessed it for you, for you.
The Will of the West
Is the Work of the World.
’Tis the test of the best and Man is the Tool.
The Ashlar, the Workman, the Temple. Thou Fool.
Go West! ’Tis the Will of the Law—You
Must do the work which your hands find to do
The Work of the West
Is the Word of the World.
First spoken by Nature, long lost to Man.
Refound, in rereading aright, life s span
Go West! You must—on the play of the Sky
Or the Arc of the Earth ’ere you die.
Read the Word of the West
Hear the Voice of the World.
It is WORK for yourself 'neaili the Sky’s blue dome,
li is life and wife, and the boon of a home.
Oo West! Where Free Men conquer the virgin soil
And the blessings of Love crown the Sons of Toil.
The West of the World
Is the Crest of the Wave.
Of the World’s Mighty Effort toward God.
The path every Tribe, Empire, Nation has trod.
Go West! Each in turn, every soul of you must.
Tis the Voice of the Spirit crying out from.the Dust.
—FREDERICK CROWE, in Los Angeles Times.
LOOKED LOVELY IN BROWN.
‘Harry” Lehr Examined Hats in New
York for His Wife.
A symphony in brown was Henry S.
Lehr, as he prefers to he called since
he has reached the dignity of marital
state, but better known as the immac-
ulate “Harry,” when he strolled into a
certain fashionable hat store in Fifth
avenue a few doors from Sherry’s res-
taurant recently, says the Kansas City
Times. Mr. Lehr was alone, but it is
to be presumed he was there for the
purpose of buying a hat or hats for
his wife. At any rate, for an hour he
kept three of the pretty shop girls
busy while he dallied over one crea-
tion after another and in the end left
the store without making a purchase.
Probably no one was ever more par-
ticular or harder to suit than "Harry.
Hat after hat for women was shown
V> him and he did everything except
try them on his own curly brown head.
He would place a hat at every angle
in his hand, holding it off at arm's
length to get the proper perspective,
but nothing could suit him. In the
end the girls who had been so eager
to make a sale to Mr. Lehr were
obliged to give it up. With a courtly
wave of the hand Mr. Lehr left the
store and thanked the girls in a grace-
ful manner. Mr. Lehr was dressed in
a brown suit, a brown hat, brown
shoes, brown socks, a brown tie and
e\en wore a brown leather strap at-
tached to his watch, which hung in
the upper pocket of his jacket.
Quick Wit in Resenting Insult.
Of Gen. Ogelthorpe, the founder of
the state of Georgia. Boswell, Dr.
Johnson’s biographer, relates this
story: “When a very young man. only
15. serving under Prince Eugene of
Savoy, he was sitting at table in com-
pany witTi a prince of the house of
Wurttrniberg, who took up a glass of
wine and by a fillip made some of it
fly into Ogelthorpe’s face. The young
soldier was in a dilemma. He durst
not challenge so distinguished a per-
sonage. yet he must notice the affront.
Therefore, keeping his eye fixed on
ais highness and smiling at the time,
as if he took what had been done in
jest, Ogelthorpe exclaimed: That’s a
good joke, but we do it much better
:«% England.' Whereupon he flung a
whole glassfvi of wine in the prince’s
face. The affair in good bu-
BRASSEY LIKES OUR PLAN.
Lord Says His Country Needs Im-
Lord Brassey, accompanied by
Lady Brassey and Capt. Parkingham,
inspected Ellis island recently and
was the guest of Commissioner
Watchorn at luncheon. Before leav-
ing the island Lord Brassey praised
the system of the immigration in-
"I am turning to a study of the im-
migration question,'’ he said.
“This is because in my own coun-
try it has become necessary to study
this question. England is in need of
some kind of a restriction on the im-
migrants who are pouring in. - We
get the immigrants rejected by this
country. Your country gets the best
stock, while the inferior is admitted
by us by one hand and fed and cared
for by the other. This is becoming
a serious drain on the national
“I have stood for the policies of
your country all my life, as far as
they were adaptable to the English
people. I believe In the unity of
English-speaking people, and shall
always work to that end. I am also
a believer in the laboring man and
champion of his cause.”
One of the “Bad Habits.”
Princeton man tells of a conver-
sation that took place between the
coach of a football eleven and one of
the players. An important game was
soon to be played, and the coach was,
of course, most anxious that every
player should be in the best of phys-
ical condition. But to his disgust
one of the men. upon whom a great
deal depended if the game were to
be won, seemed to be in “bad form.”
Taking him aside, the coach had the
following “heart to heart talk” with
“See here, you're not looking so
good! Muscles flabby and wind bad—
awful bad. What's the matter? Been
“Not a drop.”
“Then you must be smoking.”
“Haven't touched a pipe, cigar or
cigarette since the training began.”
“Well, yes—a little.”
Whereupon the coach gave vent to
a snort of disgust. “See here! You’ve
go to stop that! Do you want to lose
At the left of my Oak Park desk
there hangs on the wall a picture of

Soon after he had decided that
other people’s wants should become
his wisdom, a man asked him for
I something he thought he wanted to
! keep, but after refusing to part with
it his resolution jumped into his mem-
! ory and then to his surprise and re-
gret he saw that he cared less for the
article the man wanted than he did
for his resolution’s success. Memory
is a part of success.
Not Always Subtle, but Exceedingly
Rich and Fertile.
Prof. H. G. Lord, of Columbia, was
talking in Philadelphia about Amer-
ican humor. “Our typical humoi, he
said, “is not, perhaps, subtle. It is too
young to be subtle. But it is \eij
much alive, and very rich and fertile.
“There is a story about absent-
minded people that is, I think, a good
example of American humor. It runs,
in short passages, like this:
“A woman put her baby s dirty
clothes in the cradle and the baby in
the wash tub. She didn t discovei
her mistake till the child cried when
she pinned its left leg to the line as
she hung it out to dry.
“A man, about to go for a ride,
clapped the saddle on his own back.
He didn’t discover his mistake till h<*
became exhausted with trying to
“Another man put his dog to bed
and kicked himself downstairs. He
didn’t discover his mistake till he be-
gan to yelp and the dog began to
“A -doctor put a fee in a patient’s
hand and took the medicine himself.
He didn’t discover his mistake till the
patient got well and he became ill.”
Miss Reed’s Reply.
To the request of her publishers
for biographical details Miss Myrtle
Reed responded with the following
facetious statement: “I discovered
America thirty years ago and liked
it so well that I have not left the
country. When I came I had a pen
in one hand, a sheet of paper in the
other and was yelling for ink. At
this my father knew that I was
destined for the fourth estate, and
ran to the dictionary for a name that
would look well in print. Hence my
title, which everybody thinks a
pseudonym, and the English reviews
insist to be the name of a ‘gentle-
man,’ one of them saying. ‘The gen-
tleman who calls himself Myrtle
Reed.’ Dont’ you call that hard when
I have always been a perfect lady?
After this auspicious beginning the
rest of my career is history. • See

“Buck Shoals” Purchased by Cartel
Harrison s Sister.
The place to which Bill Nye, the
humorist, gave the incongruous name
of Buck Shoals, which was made fa-
mous up to the time of his death sev
eral years ago as his wild mountain
home, has been sold to Mrs. Sophie
Harrison Eastman of Chicago, a sis
ter of Chicago’s many-time mayor,
Carter H. Harrison, says the Atlanta
Constitution. The consideration is
not given out, but is understood;
though well up in the thousands, tc
have been less than its value. The
estate contains 100 acres and adjoins
George W. Vanderbilt’s estate, Bilt-
more, lying ten miles south of Ashe-
The place where Bill Nye did his
best work, wrote his funniest poetry,
and lived the best of his life, has de-
teriorated since his death. It has fall
en into alien hands, and its care has
not been so great a matter of inter-
est to the owners since its first owner
died. .Now, however, it will be en-
tirely renovated in every way that
money can do so, as Mrs. Eastman in
tends to make it her summer home il
not for the entire year. She will im-
mediately take possession of the fine
old residence as soon as some neces-
sary changes have been made upon it
Buck Shoals is considered one of the

Took Risks with Savages.
An explorer in the backwoods oi
Australia tells how some timber cut
ters took big risks. “I had given in
structions to the men in the bush
that on no nccount were they to lay
aside their firearms.” he says. “After
having been absent for a short time I
returned and found that they had
slung their revolvers and carbines on
a small tree and were working at
about fifty yards from them. I can
tell you they heard of it. The natives
have a playful habit of dragging their
spears through the grass with their
toes and all the while looking as In-
nocent as it is possible for them to
look. If the natives had only thought
of it they might have given the eutters
a warm time.”
