When all the* shadows lengthen out,
An’ fall acroat familyur walks
So ladylike, and ioae ’emselves
AmoriRHt the weeds an’ jimson stalks,
There’s sum!bin’ in the look of ’em,
There’s sumthin’ in the way they lay.
That mortil man eayu’t. understand.
An’ yit they ullus seem t’ say,
“See the shadows lete^t heningr out!”
Hits a sign that Fall’s about!”
When all our mem’riea lengthen out.

Sound smaller in our list’nin’ ears;
When Tim. has gone an’ left hur mark
In little dabs o silvery grey,

That we Ui ' hear our feelin’s say;

The Wifeless Husband in the Lonely
Pity the poor husband left wifeless
in the town! While she is basking in
the warm sunshine on the beach or en
joying the sweet delights of rusticity
on the farm, he is left alone in the
crowded city, working his life out
from four to six hours a day to pay for
the luxury of his unthinking and ex-
nensive family. In the city in the sum
mer time there is nothing in the world
to amuse a man except baseball games,
roof gardens, parks, sails, highballs,
vaudeville shows, cafes swept by elec
tric-fan breezes, blonde and brunette
maidens, banks, poker parties, orches
tras, beer, picnics, “joyrides” and
mint juleps. Not another thing. Out
side of these all is work.
The business man comes down to his
stokehole of an office resolved to con
quer or die. He attacks the work with
desperate determination. From 9:45
to 10 :15 he works with feverish haste.
Then the terrific pace begins to tell on
him, and he falters. To renew his
wasted energy he goes out at 10:30 to
get a glass of beer which ha's been pre
scribed by his doctor whenever he feels
an attack coming on. At noon he re-j
turns to get to work again. By this
time he has dictated seventeen letters;
to the stenographer, has told the peo-j
pie by telephone that he cannot possi
bly see them to-day, and he feels that j
it is time to pass from labor to refresh- j
ment. The pretty stenographer, with
the little curl on her neck, also being
overworked, he decides to rescue her
and save himself by taking her to some
cooler spot. So they search until they]
find the coolest spot in the dining-room \
oasis, and after a few moments they !
feel strong enough to take a few mor-!
sels of food. By the time they have
had a bite, they find that it is 2 o’clock
and rush back to work. By 2 :30 they
are again at the office grinding away.
They work wildly until 3 :30, when it is
time to get ready for the ball game.
There he is held in close confinement
with other perspiring prisoners until (!,
when it is high time for dinner. This
meal—which the married man usually
consumes in the bosom of his family
to the sweet music of the children tell
ing what terrible things have happened
during the day; ‘‘and the grocer
brought the bill and Mamie must have
new shoes and Johnnie cut his finger;
for heaven’s sake, stop crying, baby”
—he is now compelled to eat at a hotel
or cafe with none of his own family to
love and caress. As he sits there con
suming only fried chicken, broiled
perch, crab flakes a la Neuberg, fruit
salads, auricot ices, and ten or twelve
other little morsels, tears come into
his eyes as his memory brings back the
meals of cold ham and burnt steak, the
dear old soggy potatoes, he used to get
in the home nest.
After dinner, nowhere to go except
to the vaudeville or the park or down
the bay or to the country club or on a
a ‘‘Joy ride” in an automobile. It takes
a strong character to bear such loneli
ness. Under such circumstances a man
is likely to get desperate. It is these
neglected husbands who give the poker
parties that shock our fair land. It is
these husbands — deserted by the wife
who is enjoying all the luxuries of the
country—who dive headforemost into
the mint julep and have to be rescued
and hauled home.
How can a woman who loves her hus
band leave him to pine away in the de
serted city while she spends his hard
earnings in the riotous gayety of a
summer hotel? It must rest upon her
conscience. Meanwhile the hard-
worked, long-suffering husband bears
up as best he may He conceals his
sorrows in his own bosom, drowns his
troubles at the nearest corner, and,
sore as his heart may be, greets the
world with a smile upon his face.
Hcttty’s uncle, who was a school
teacher, met her on the street one beau
tiful May day and asked her if she was
going out with the Maying party.
“No, I ain’t going.”
“Oh. my little dear,” said her un
cle, “you must not say ‘I ain’t going.’
You must ray, ‘I am not going,’ ” and
he proceeded to give her a little lesson
in grammar. ‘‘You are not going. He
is not going. We are not going. You
are not going. They are not going.
Now, can you say all that, Hetty?”
‘‘Sure l can,” she replied, making
a curtesy. ‘‘There ain’t nobody going.”
None is so humble that his approval
is despised by a great artist.
Where the Responsibility Rests.
Much is being said in the public
prints just at present concerning con
ditions at the State Insane Asylum. An
investigating committee has made a
sort of "half and half” report, dealing
largely in generalities, and in a meas
ure acquitting the management of
charges made by former inmates, but
making very grave allegations.
As a result of the report a legisla
tive committee has been appointed to
make a further investigation. It is to
be hoped that this will he done in a
thorough manner, and will result in
something definite and tangible upon
which action may be taken intelligent
Meantime. The Tribune-Herald would
suggest that Georgians do not give too
ready credence to the reports of cruel
treatment and bad conditions at that
institution. Heretofore the State In
sane Asylum has been regarded as a
model of its kind. Its very magnitude
is difficult to comprehend. There are
3,000 patients there. In a city of 3,000
inhabitants, all of them sane, if could
not bo expected that there would be u
total absence of disorder, of trouble,
even of injustice and abuse. How
much more complicated, then, is the
problem when dealing with 3,000 peo
ple from all of whom the light of rea
son has fled! There are all classes,
from the violent maniac to Ihe invalid
epileptic and the harmless idiot.
The whole trouble seems to be that,
like many other of Georgia’s institu
tions, the asylum is compelled to hob
ble along on an insufficient stipend.
We are informed that time after time
the trustees have sought for a $10,000
appropriation, that they might build
separate structures for the treatment
of tubercular patients. It is little short
of marvelous that conditions are not
worse, when 34 cents a day must feud,
clothe and lodge the patients If more
money were appropriated a better class
of people could he secured as attend
ants, and the patients would he better
treated. The task of handling insane
people is not a pleasant one, arid wu
wonder that anyone would accept it at
the salaries paid.
Clearly, then, an increased appropri
ation would better, if it would not rem
edy, the situation. The Georgia School
for the Deaf, in our own county, is
handicapned by lack of funds. The
same poverty hampers the Academy
for the Blind.
And yet, despite all these facts, our
legislators insist on spending the
State’s time and money for annual ses
sions, where days and dollars are
wasted in trifling talk. The fees and
salaries of State House officials are
increased every year. Fat sine
cures are created for political favor
ites, "special atorneyships” make for
tunes for mediocre lawyers, new of
fices are created annually, and salary
grabs for which the Appellate Court
Justices lobby shamelessly, are at
tempted. All this while tho Confeder
ate veterans wait for their money, the
school teahers go unpaid, and tho in
sane, the ileaf and blind are neglected.
Georgia needs economy in some
places, and generosity in others. The
real blame for conditions rests else
where than on the immediate heads of
these institutions. Will the legislative
committee have the courage to tell the
truth, and apply the remedy?
Boys on the Streets.
.Small boys not vet in their teens are
frequently seen about our streets after
dark, and sometimes until late at
night. They dart about the corners and
dark places, conscious of the fact that
they should not he seen, and that mis
chief, perhaps not the innocent kind, is
pleasing and tempting them. The fol
lowing on this subject is from an ex
Parents, keep your boys off the
street, especially after dark. You know
not what an annoyance these little fel
lows are; besides, they learn all kinds
of meanness, picking up all the slang
phrases uitered by other boys who have
forgotten the prayers taught them at
their mother’s knee when they, too,
were innocent little tots like your own
bovs now. If you have a nice, beauti
ful yard, allow your boys to play in
them, never scolding them for their
merry laughter, for ’tis better tar to
be annoyed at home than to have them
mixed up in an ugly afFair on the street
of which vou know nothing until it has
grown cold on everyone’s tongue. )f
you value their education us you
should, vou will keen your boys off the
streets, where no evil associations will
corrupt their morals.
