unrise Theproud cock down on the Vxfiison farm loudly hailed the new day, and the sun rose reluctantly in the pink, soft sky, like a woman in an her glory slowly opening her eyes to radiate happiness, laughter, and warmth, of which the world was so much in need. Tulips stretched their petals towards her in praise while hirds chirped a warm welcome. How lovely and peaceful it was in this ioneiy spot, where Howers grew in spite of the fact that a war was going on, and hirds stin swung gracefully through the air! Qver the edge of the hill something not yet discernihie was silhouetted against a rosy sky. As the silhouette took form, one could see a wagon on four none-too-steady wheels coming slowly down the road which wriggied its-elf past the neat little cottage in the valley, only to disappear over the low hills on the other side. Alongside the rickety wagon full of shining milk cans. a harefooted youth was whistling gaiiy, his hands hidden in faded jeans. He wore a iight htue shirt of sturdy material, of a quality which descrihed his nature as wen as his clothes. Though hoth his shirt and jeans were patched in varying shades of hiue, there was a took of cleanliness ahout him. There was nothing unusual ahout his iooks: he had an average mouth and nose, and his height was not extraordinary, yet, when one looked into his eyes one wondered what thoughts lay hehind them and why his dark hrows were often drawn together, making him seem oider than he was. He liked the stillness that surrounded him, a peacefuiness that made him sigh inwardly with contentment. The sun had now risen fully and the sky had gradually changed to a deep hiue, with little whisps of cloud hanging life- Iessiy in the air. A He was in the valley now, walking past a little cottage dozing in the warmth. lt, too, was touched with the radiance of the sun like everything else in the vaitey. A few dewdrops still giistened here and there, giving the whole scene an ethereal quality. He had stopped whistling for fear of disturhing the heavenly peace that pervaded him and his surroundings.

hunches of forget-me-nots. Regretfuny he turned to the valley for a last look, drawing his eyehrows together in deep concentration as if trying to rememher this scene forever. Then he turned resolutely toward his goal without looking hack. He hegan whistling again, as he approached the top of the hill, hut not as gaily as hefore. With regretfui eyes he walked on tin he had reached the top, took one more glance at his enchanting valley, and slowly faded from view. i V NINA VAN DAM Quttercups Although they did not speak so 1 could understand, Their drooping yellow cups in the scented afternoon, Swaying gently to the touch of some suhtie, rhythmic hand, Woke a half-rememhered aching in my hreast that even June Could not ease. .And the streaming liquid light that lay across the Hoor Sought the Finely threaded veins of their petals, just the same As rememhrance plucked the strings of my throhhing heart once more, -And their glowing iridescence lighted deep in me a name That thought was lost forever in the Caverns of my soul ' And would wander there forgotten like a silent, vanished ghost, All alone with none to answer to its mute, eternal dole. But the Howers in their wisdom drove away the foolish hoast, And I knew, with hopeless misery, the ghost was come again. Q Godf That huttercups and June should he the givers of such pain!
