A Star reporter overheard Col.
J. J. Hickman reading a letter
from his wife, who is now in Mis
souri, and caught the following
paragraph about what his little
three-and-a-half -year -old grand granddaughter
daughter granddaughter Catherine said to her
papa last Sunday morning about
going to church:
"Catherine came in and asked
her papa if he would go with her
and mamma to church. Pie said,
'No.' She said, 'Why, papa, all
the men go with their wives to
church. I saw them there Lst
Sunday, and if you don't go all the
little girls will think I have no
papa, for their papas go with them
to church.' He said, 'You tell the
little girls you have a papa at
home:' 'No,' she said, 'I won't do
that. I will just tell them you are

For the way is growing dreary,
And the feet are often weary.
And the heart is very sad.
There is heavy burden -bearing,
When we think that none are caring
And we half forget that ever we were glad.
Comfort one another,
With the hand-clasp close and tender,
With the sweetness love can render
And w ith loo1 s of friendly eyes.
Do not wait with grace unspoken,
While life's daily bread is broken
Gentle speech is oft like manna from the skies.
Comfort one another.

Down the ages, sweet as sinking
Of the happy choirs above.
