CSequel to My Nifty Camel in the Advance for 1909j
Come friends and fellow playmates dear
And join with me this day
In grief for my poor camel, who
Has lately passed away.
It is with grief I take my pen
To honor him that's deadg
And praise him for his services,
Although his life is sped.
'Twas but a year ago since I
Enjoyed with honest pride
The service of my camel true,
As on him I did ride.
But from that time he sickened. and
He shrank beneath my weight.
He could no longer climb that hill
With the selfsame steady gait.
And when I saw his life was slowly
Drawing to a close
I deemed it was my duty for
To give him quick repose.
So early one bright morning, e're
The sun rose in the sky.
Mid sounds of lamentations, then
I led him off to die.
VVith one shot from the rifle then
I solemnly did hack
The thread of brutal destiny
And killed him in his tracks.
Then, touched with pity and remorse,
I sorrowed o'er the expiring horse.
"Ol1! Cyclone dear, your work is o'er.
And you shall climb that hill no more.
I little thought, when Hrst astride
Thy back I did attempt to ride.
That crows and bnzzards e're should feed
On thy fleet limbs, my noble steed.
The falling leaves shall be thy bier,
So fare thee well. my camel dear."

Slowly and sadly I turned away,
Yet I felt no pang of sorrow,
For I knew he would be in a happier land
When he woke on the morrow.
But now each night, as I trudge home
From school all by my lonely,
I often sigh, and think of him
That I once loved so fondly.
Oh! friends, I've lost a noble steed
He was my joy and pride.
This world is ups and downs to me
Since my poor camel died.
THE IVIOCCASIN PLANT
In the spring and early summer, the grass is fresh and green, and the bees
buzz merrily as they Hit from flower to tlower. The birds sing and twitter in
every bush and tree, thrilling our hearts with joy.
The roadside and fields are dotted with white and pink daisies. Violets blue
and yellow cover the hillside, and the wild strawberry peeps from every rock and
tuft of grass. The wild currant, also, with its bunches of pink blossoms, abounds
throughout the woods, and along the fences the cherry with its delicate white
flowers grows in wild profusion.
In the woods under the stately redwoods, nod triliums, dainty little bluebells
Along the creeks, green mosses of varied hues cover the rocks and ground like
a velvet carpet, with here and there a cluster of gold or silver leaf fern. On the
banks, great bunches of five finger and sword fern grow, making a beautiful ar-
bor, suitable for any Fairy Queen. Then, in shady nooks, the little Lady Slipper
grows in delicate shades of pink and white. The Indians call it the "Moccasin
Plant" from the following pretty little legend:
Years ago, a tribe of Indians lived on the banks of a beautiful river. The
women used to sit by this river and chat. One young mother never took her eyes
off the cradle where her baby boy slept. She called him "Little Bravof ' Time
passed on, until Little Bravo was ten years old-
