ROBERT FROST
(Continued from Page One).
And shout from where I am, What is
it?
No, not as there is a tinia to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow
ground.
Blade-end up and five feet tall.

And plod: I go up to the stone wall
Io: ,tfriend : visit.
Mr Frost was like that here. When
you came to his house, he didn't say
I't working on a poem," nor look in
at a pile of unread ptroof, nor say
"What can I do for you, youg man?"
Ile came u)) to tte' stle wall for a
friendly visit.

LA31ENT
After tis or., .Jol l mouth, and curss ,lhis day.
And Jolt nake, an(' ate
-Let the day pr h--Nerein I was torn. and the night in thich it swo
said 'Thir is oss,..,id conceived.'
-Le that dad be darke!s: let not God regard it frot above, neither let
t1k light shine upon it.
"Let darkncss and the shadow of death slain it; let a cloud dwell upon
it; let the blacknets of the dat' terrify it.
"Ar fe. that nilaht, let darkness seize soon it; let it not be joined unto
the days o' the year, let it not come into the nutmber of the months.
Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.
"Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up thei-r
mourning.
Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but
have notte; neither let it see the dawning of the day:
"Because it shut not up the door of my mother's womb, nor hid sorrow
from my eyes,
"Why died I not from the womb? Why did I not give up the ghost when
I came out of the belly?
Why did the knees prevent me? cr why the breasts that I should ceck ?
For now should I hare lain still a.nd been quiet, I should have slept:
thee, had I heen a: rest,
With kiugs and eotuseltors of the earth, ws hich built desolate places for
' themselves;
"Or -eth prines that had gold, who filled their houses with eiler:
-Or as an hidden untimely birth I had not hesn; as infants whieh never
sa light.
"There the wicked cease from troublin.g; and there the weary be a- rest.
There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice ol the
Copp)e-o
"The emanl and great are there; and the servant is free from hitt mastee.
!Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the
bitte ir soul;
Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for
hid treasures.
"Which rejoIce exceedingly, and are glad when they can find the grave?j
"Why is light given to a man whore way is hid, and whom God bath
hedgest in"
From the Book of Job.
DEGENERATION
"The Globe" is extinct, the "St. James Gazette" is merged and submerged
in tb , "Esvening Stansard:" there are no naners of such metal now in e-
istence. The difference in them and the evening pners of the day is a very
simple one: the former were meant to olease the educated, the latter are
designed to entertain the uneducated, and the uneducated may be equated,
very larelv. with women. It ic an odd paradox: there is no doubt, I sur-
pose. that the instruction-cr. If you like, education-of women has made
immense strides in the last thirty years; yet it is true that when a news~
paper editor says to himself: 'We have an immense number of women read-
ers and we must see that they get what they like,' the result is drivel."
From "Things Near and Far," by Arthur Machen.
ARTI?
. Perfumes, in fact. rarely come from the fowers whose names
they bear. The artist who dared to borrow nature's elements wculd only
produce a bastard work which would have neither authenticity nor style,
inasmuch as the essence obtained by the distillation of the flowers would
bear but a distant snd vulgar relation to the odor of the living flower.
waftin git fragrance into the air,
"Tlauts. with the excention of the inimttable iastnine which it is im -
possible to counterfeit, all Powers are perfectly represented by the blend-
of arcoaftie spirits. stealing the very personality of the model, and to it
;ddinc that nuance the mere. that beady scent. that rare touch which en-
titled a thing to be=calied a work of art."
From "Against the Grain," ty J. K. Hssmaovs.
SUCCESS
scandal ever seeks Q shining mark. No sooner doe3 a person-
ality manage to set itself off from the group than the intelligentsia inme
dlately wishes ta now who, how and why."
From "The Titan," b' Thoodore Deise:-.
EPHEMERA
"The tenocence of a girl is like milk which is turned, by a thln-derciap,
kIy an evil smell bi a bot day, or even by a breath."
Fron "ModestMignon," by lalsac',-
FAME
ou base escaped the romsdy
Of swift, -pretentious pyaie and blame,
Antt smashed a tavern where thev sell
The hariot's wrine that men call fame.
From "Blackguard," by Maxwell I odehn -ira.
