This photograph was taken before the Germans started their retreat. At that time visitations of bomb-dropping aeroplanes war of daily occurrence and the people were in constant terror because of their attacks. Note the looks of fear on the faces of the women in the foreground.

A Modern Samaritan

The street was dark, the night was cold;

I met a man polite and bold.

“The kindly man will always share

The load his brother has to bear.”

‘Twas thus he said, and then he strove

His kindliness to full prove:

He took my watch, and eke my rings,

My pocketbook, and other things.

Song

The flowers that grow in my lady love’s garden

Are fragrant and sweet;

They flirt with the sun, but they pray for her pardon

At sound of her feet.

They take the bee’s kisses and toy with the breeze,

And lure the young birds from their nests in the trees;

But when she is nigh they seek only to please

Their Lady of Infinite Grace.

Were I but a rose to…

Mother

By Lilian Lauferty

Love her today. Fold your young arms around her,

Smooth back her hair where gentle sunbeams play.

Thought your wild strength, unleashed, may still confound her,

Love her today.

Love her today. Spare not one dazzling token,

Nor leave unsaid one love word you can say.

Soon comes long silence that may ne’er be broken:

Love her today.

Dirigibles Good As Bomb Throwers

While the Germans are ahead of every other nation in the development of dirigible balloons, the French and English have a goodly number. They cannot compare in size with the giant Zeppelins, but they are swift and can perform good scouting duty. The dirigibles, however, are proving of less effective service than the aeroplanes.

Summer’s Remembrance

By Frank Dempster Sherman

How softly Summer sped!

Between the dusk and dawn she slipt away,

Leaving her lighted torches, gold and red,

Her last farewell to say.

The meadow’s urns she filled,

And trimmed the forest’s lamps of leaves, to be

Ready for Autumn’s welcome when she willed

Earth’s loveliness to see.

The garden’s hearthstone shows

Does insanity follow in the wake of civilization?

Are we fast becoming a nation of lunatics?

Is Chicago going crazy faster than any other city in the world?

To these three questions three noted Chicago alienists answer “Yes,” says the New York World.

They were V.H. Podstata, superintendent of the Dunning Insane Asylum: Dr. James P. Lynch and Dr. Oscar A.…
