  "Lo, I was like a sparrow all alone on the house top," tee-
heed Billy Walker.  "He didn't chirp much like a sparrow,
did he?"
  "Hush," said Artie Taft, with the air of mild reproof, and
he raised a warning finger to the third story windows whence
nuns' voices filtered happily. His tone was Sister Julia's drone
of the litany." Let us give thanks, 0 miserable worms of sin
and evil, for him our holy brother. He has quitted his pil-
lar of mortal pain; he is wafted to bliss in the realms above."

      :;WO leaves upon a forest stream
      w   Fared side by side,
      Together floated on awhile
      But parted by an eddy's wile.
             To meet again?
             Perchance again
      But farther down that gliding forest stream.
      3  E met upon Life's changeful mystic stream;
      30    Toiled side by side,
      Together toiling on awhile,
      But parted by sly Fortune's wile.
             To meet again?
             Perchance, again,
      But farther down that changeful, gliding stream.
