Khii\\i6t Doesn't Know I'm Coming

Words and chorus ineloity by Raymond .\.'Dri>wne. 

I was sittintr in a train that was speeding o'er the rails, 

Whili' at my side a chance companion sat: 
He was Intiely— so was I— and it happened that ere long 

We tM.tti. in" friendly way, began to chat; 
Soon hi' told how. long ago. he had left his boyhood's homo 

To s«'tk for wealth in lands wherf friends were few; 
"But niv wandi-rings are done, for I'm going back at last 

To be with her whose love was always true. " 


"Mother doesn't know I'm coming home; 

Just to surpris»? her I've not told her; 
For I wrote and asked them not to tell. 

Till in my arms once more 1 hold her; - 
She'll be glad to see her wand'ring boy— 

'I'he bov who left her just to roam— 
And fur worlds I wouldn t miss the welcome Of her kisa, 

>'or laother doesn t know I'm coming home." 

When we reached our journey's end, and within the depot Stood, 

His brother met him at the door and said: 
" I ai:i 1,'lad to si-e you. Jack, but I've bad news to tell: 

You'r>- just an hour too late, for mother's d^ad " 
In J.ii-k's eves the teardrops stood, as lie dasned his brother's hand— 

'Txvas a cruel blow that lllleil his heart witli pain: 
And 1 thought with sad regret, as I watched him standing there, 

vt the iiappy words he'd spoken on the train.— f/i<»u#.

On the Delaware

In a quaint old-fashioned city, on the peaceful Delaware, 

Lived the fairest little lass I *'vei knew. 
We were lovers there in d.iys gone by. and happy were our (freams. 

As we talked of future days and what we'd do. 
The dav I asked her for her hand I never will forget. 

She s^iyly said. " Yes, Ted, I'm yours f(«r life." 
In a fortnight we were married, but alas: we soon did part. 

For a higher iMjwer claimed my darling wife. 


I can never forget her. no matter where I roam; - • .•- 

I can never replace her, in our old sweet home; 
Many mai<ls I've met in foreign climes, but none to me seems fair 
As the girl I woiK'd and won uiH)n the Delaware. 

Sometime ago I wandered through the church-yard where she lies. 

And Siting on her grave soon d(»/.ed away. 
And in my Ureanis I seemed to see her a.s in days gone by. 

With loving face as sunny as the day. 
I took her in my arms once more, then gazed Into her eyes. 

And whispered, '• May. don't leave me here alone " 
But in a mist she vaiiislie<l. and my heart again was s;id. 

For she was lost to me. my wife, my own.— C'A.// «».

It was just before the battle, tlie troops were ordered on. 

And a Soulier with his sweetheart l)j- his side 
Were both praying for liis safety and that he might soon return, 

And live ill peace and comfort with his bride. 
They would suoii have lieeii wedded had he not been called to arms. 

And It made the jiarting all the worse to bear. 
But he said, " >[3' country calls, so well be wed when I return. 
Let US hope twill be the answer to our prayer." 

" When I return we'll be wed," 

Those were the last words he said. 
As he shouldered his musket and marched along. 

Perhaps to be soon with the dead. 
But her sweet smiling face cheer'd him on, .. 
• - Though her heart sank within as lie left. 

And long In her meiury there lived that farewell, 
"When I return we will 1)6 wed." 
In the thickest of the battle, amidst the shot and shell. 

Stood the soldier with the br>\est ot the brave. 
When upon them came an awful charge, and with the rest he fell. 

While sti'Uggling for his country's tiag to save. 
As his comrades gathered 'round "iilni, "tell my sjveetheart " were his

Nothing in this world can take her love away;

For when a woman truly loves her love will stay.

You always found my love was just the same. .-

A Farmer Never Can an Actor Be

John Reuben fnun the country thought he'd t(» the city go, ,, \ , 

" I'm tired of the farm." said he, " I'm going Ui jum a show. > \ 

A real live actor I will Ije, my fame it sliall resound ' 

"Oh, what a fool." the neighl)ors fsaid, "no bigger can be found." 

So to an actor's boarding-house in the city U<'iilK'n went. 

The show-folks guyed him all day long, he didnt mind a cent. 

" I'm looking lor a good soubrette witli me to do a turn."' 

They introduced him " Polly Jones," and from her he did learn: 


" *' First, you stand up on your head like this, ' ' ■ •• ; 
- . :- .;■ To the audience wave a little, , ... 

. 'Waltz upon your ear, 'way back to the rear. 

Turn a summersjiult, but don't you miss, , .;- 

Then you do the hutschi knt<-hl dance, ' . 

Make a 1)0W or two at every chance, ' '■ 

Tell a funny gag. and dance the buck aiid rag. 
That will be an act of whii-h we can brag." 
Then she told him she would like to dine, 
Reul)en SJtys. " lets have a iKittle of wine: " 
Then She blew him and made him si»end his tin, 
'Till for the farm that jay did pine; 
On the train, next tlay, Reuben did flee, 
" The old farm right (piick I'm going to see. 
Home is good enough, but you l»et she was hot stuff," 
A farmer never can an actor be. 

A short time after he got home, thei-e came the county fair. 

And ev'ry farmer that could go. .soon hurried to get there. 

Now Rpul)en he was one of them, he brought the folks down, too. 

And told them to enjoy themselve.s, while he'd the llve-st^x-k view. 

The gambling tent attracted him, he watched the wheel go 'round, 

" That business is an easy one. no l>ett<«r can Ih' found." 

" A gambler I would like to be, for that my heart do«'s yearn;" " 

So he went up, spoke to the boss, and from him he did learn: 

"First, you get a sucker on the string. 
And to your room you hint willliring. 
And then when you play, things will come his way, . .■■ 

For a little while y(ni let him win, ' -\ 

Then when you thiilk he has won enough, • 

Just you start to make a g(K)d big bluff. 
That's the way to win. to get all his tin, 

For he'll weaken. .Tiid you get the stutT; ' -^ 

Now I'll show you how the trick is done, ' 

We'll start a little game, but just for fun." ,• 

Said Reuljen, "dont you fret. Ill make a little bet. 
If for my money I can get a run." . ' 

Soon the jay he held of .'ices three, 
' " "I'll bet you all I've got if you'll agree: " 

' - Then the gambler shoWd a flush. 4 poor Reuben made a rush — 

A farmer never can a gambler be. 

Now, Reulien got disgusted, "I'll settle and stay here. 

They cant do me wheti I'm at home, there ain't no con. men near," 

A farmer I will live and die. for that is good enough, 

I'll raise my cows, and sell my wheat, though country life is tough." 

Election time was coming nijar, excitement reigned supreme. 

For Congress they put Reuljen up, he felt as In a dream. 

" Now there's the thing that I've longed for. I Irnow not how to turn; 

And then he met Senator Smith, and from hfoi he did learn: 

V ■ CuoRts. ■/. 

"First, you've got the crowd to organize, 
:- In the papers you must advertise. . -. 

Then you hire almll, give the crowd a ball, 
^, ;■ Make them think (ui you there are no tlies; .. 

.'".■,. Spend your money free at ev'ry place, 

Be up day and night, always keep in sight; 

Then you'll have a show to win the race." 
" ■;■• So poor Reuljen hustled through the town. 

You bet your life he done things go<jd and brown: 

His money It did flow it was a holy show 

Why, even his watch he put in pawn. 
• -: Election day came, sunny, bright and free. 

" This is the day on which III honored be."

Cupyriicbt, 1898. b) Victor Krenier. Words and Music by Ragley A. Uobaon. 

Within a dreary prison cell a young man sat alone. 

And in re|)entance siidly bowed his head. 
As once more he recalls the smiles of one who was his own, 

Wlio now, jierhaps, was mourning him as dead: 
One month tiefore he'd forged a note, and thereby did obtain 

The nee<led wealth to make her his for life; > 

A criminal thev held him now, ids heart near broke with pain. 
Unknown to her who was his promised wife. , 

Chorcs. ' 

For he did It all for love, for one he loved dearer than life. 
Tho one sweet girl he fontilv wished to make his loving wife; 
With thoughts of her, his loved one, as fair as the sunshine above. 
'Midst dangers and strife, he risked his young life— a hero all for lov©. 
The scene is clianged: the prisoner now, with other heroes true, 

Is fighting to defend his native hmd: 
£.scaping from his prison cell, he's donned the soldier's blue. 

And desix'rate is the task they have on hand; 
Uiwn the gory battlelleld all danger he defies. 

And by his hrav'iy wins undying fame. 
The pardon that awaits him now he deems a worthless prize, . 
Compared with her whose love he now can claim.— c'Ao/'i«.

CopyriKbt, 1897, by Caiirttui, CaTana«ch Jt CV>. VVonlnaiKl Muali- by Ouute L. Oarls. 

At a little niilroad station sits an old man ev'ry day. 

Waiting as tlio' he exjiected some one from the far away. 

And at night he homeward totters, with a teardrop In his eye. 

To himself he Sillily murmurs, she Is coming bye and bye. 

Now l)ereft of all liis reason, with a sister lives alone. 

When a young man made a fortune, built a mansion of his own; 

But his fondest Imiies were shattered, when a message came one day. 

And the mem'ry haunts him ever, tho' he's feeble, old and gray. 

Every day at the station he waits and waits in vain. 
Watching the many faces that on every train; 
Who can it 1h» that'he sighs for from morning till eventide, . 
Every day at the statior. he waits for a promised bride. 

Listen. I will tell the story, o'er and o'er it's tolil each day. 

How when young he loved a maiden, were engaged, the jwople say; 

On the morning of the wedding went to meet her at the train. 

But a message handed to him broke his heart and wrecked his brain; 

Thus it read: "The train has InH^n wrecked that was bringing you your 

My (iod, have I lost my darling: this the man then sjidly cried, [bride." 

Back to home then kind friends leil lilm. wlie<-e the wedding was 

Ev'ry day since then he's waited at the t-talioa for the dtjiid.— t'/n'. [spread,

This book tells all almiit venomous serpents 
and snake charmers from the earliest days, 
when the wily serpent in Kden tempted our 

first mother. Eve, 
down to the present 
time. It explains 
fully why the whole 
snake trit)e have, 
through all genera- 
tionsand in all coun- 
tries, inspired the 
Implacable hatred 
and fear of men, 
birds, and the brute 
creation, although 
the gresit^st enemy, 
as well a.s the great- 
est victim, has un 
doubtedly been man. 
At his hands the 
snake has no mercy 
to hope for or ex- 
pect, and from the 
enake he, in some 
unguarded moment, may in an instant receive 
that wound, whose puncture, though barely 
hirger than the prick of a sbarp-polnteu 
needle, is the seal of doom on earth. It would 
take many times this space to give even a 
brief idea of its contents. It is interesting 
and ln.striiciivefrom l>eglnnlngtoend. There 
is nothing more thrilling to l^ found in the 
wildest i)age8 of romance It relates facts, 
not fancies, lllustnitod with 28 fine engrav- 
ings. Bound In handsome colored cover..
