ISLAND P--HARMACY CO. 417 Crescent Avenue IT'S FINE TO BE A-LIVING By Bob Turnbull It's fine to be a-living these splendid days of spring, To do a little giving, to help some sad one sing. It's fine to shrug one's shoulders, to delve into one's work, To lend a hand to all the world, and ne'er a duty shirk. It's fine to be a-living, to be a workman, To know we have a place in God's eternal plan; It's fine to battle upward for things that are worth while, To shake our brother by the hand, to see his genial smile. It's fine to be a-living, to have a dear home nest, To clasp in fond embrace the wife, in all the world the best. lt's fine to be a-living, it's just a lot of fun, To know we play a manly part, as life's great race we run. LINES I bought a linen Cuttyhunk, a lovely fishing line, Its threads j~lst numbered twenty-one--I thought it was just fine. I showed it to my friend Bill Gray but he exclaimed "I hope You won't go fishing with that thing--why, man, it's just a rope! "Why don't you use a fifteen thread ?--it's just the very thing, It's limber, soft and very strong and glides through guide and ring." "A fifteen thread did you advise ?--Bill Gray, I always thought You were a thorough fisherman, an angler and a sport. "A fifteen thread's a cable--you don't give the fish a show, A twelve thread line is thick enough--ask John, he ought to know." But John just laughed derisively--"No, I don't use a chain, A six thread cord is strong enough--beyond there is no gain." Then Billy Smith, the weakfish king, began to heln and haw: "A cotton thread is just the thing, you don't need any more. You fellows all use hawsers and you make real anglers sick; To land a fish with rope like yours--shucks, that is not a trick !" That night I lay a-dreaming on my downy, cosy bed, I dremt that I was catching whales and using spider's thread; And now I am in gravest doubt--just what line should I get ? A heavy one or cotton thread ?----1 think 1'11 buy a net! --Exchange from New York. THE FINNY BACHELOR By W. E. Cortissoz I know a little garden Beneath a green-gold sea, Pvhere bright, bronze plants are growin' And grow so gracefully. Amidst their undulations, A flash of gold I sifted; And in and out the waving Kelp it seemed to hide. It was a little gohl-fish Who lived there all alone, In this most lovely garden In the Bay of Avalon. 1)ay after day I find him Alone in his domains; He darts, then lingers, to and fro, And in his garden reigns. I see that he is happy, And that--his praise "to One, Who caused his life to hal)pen In the Bay of Avalon.
