NEWS ========= OF INTEREST IN THE SOCIAL REALM THE HAPPY GIRL Helen’s smile is bright as sunshine, Helen’s eyes are happy-clear, Common little cares and worries Never seem to touch my Dear; Helen's walk is blithe as dancing And her voice with gladness rings, Yet she is no pet of Fortune— She is pleased with little things. Helen’s sympathy is welcome As fair weather after rain, ■Griefs and troubles that are told her Never seem as bad again; Gld folks love to have her w ith them, Every child adores and clings, Happiness springs up around her— She is pleased with little things. Wondrous raptures come but seldom, Ecstasy is bought with tears, Rainbow dreams that Youth goes seeking Seem to vanish with the years; Fame is often disappointing, Riches, we are told, have wings, .So life’s greatest gift I count it: To be pleased with little things. —Elsie B.
