LAUGH AND THE WORLD
LAUGHS WITH YOU
(Ella Wheeler Wilcox)
Laugh and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its
But has troubles enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.
Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go.
They want full measure of all your
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all.
There are none to decline your nec nec-tared
tared nec-tared wine,
But alone you must drink life's gall.
Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by,
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a large and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain.

BY OUR FLORIDA BARD
In the past score of years, wise men,
not of the east, have done considerable
iconoclasting in regard to Christmas,
but without any perceptible result, so
far as the great mass of the people
are concerned. Some of these wise
guys have insisted that Christ could
not have been born on the 25th of De December,
cember, December, because at that time the shep shepherds
herds shepherds could not have been keeping
their flocks in the fields. Others have
called attention to the Yule festival,
immediately following the turning of
the sun .and the beginning of the
lengthening of the days, which fes festival
tival festival was held in many heathen coun countries
tries countries for centuries before the Chris
tian 'era. Perhaps these highbrows, are
right, but what difference does it
make? The main thing about Christ Christmas
mas Christmas is to get together and have a good
time and .make other people happy.
Date makes no difference.

And the wise men, thrilled with rapture?
.As they hastened through the nigfrti
And beheld the infant Savior
On his pallet bed of straw
With his young and tender mother,
(This is what the wise men saw) ..
Then they knelt in adoration
And they brought their gifts of goWL;
But little cared he for these treasures
Wondrous gifts of wealth untold;.
For the little hands were groping
Until they found his mother's breast
Then he lay serenely happy;
Mother's love a place to rest.
So into each simple home life
'Comes this blessing from above,.
Gift of God himselfthe Father,,
Mary's gift a mother's love.
Blessed is he with love of children
And parents' love oh, untold worth
And as songs ring out for Christmas
Glory to God and peace to earth.

nave decided that the artistic values
of the words and music of a poem ar?
equal. At present In the United
States and Canada the writer of the
words of a song gets only a pittance
of the royalties or a small sum out outright
right outright at the start. In England many
of the most popular ballads have
brought thtlr writers no more than
two or three guineas, while the com composer

checks for years. What measure pub publishers
lishers publishers apply to the two arts thus
combined to make words so much Uss
valuable than music is rather hard to
understand. Verse writers might well
send a little gold medal to the just just-minded

ruled it a false one.
