LIPP INSURANCE mm OF ALL KINDS MOUNT PULASki NEW MOUNT PULASKI, O18 THURSDAY, JANUARY 9, FORTY YEARS AGO Mr. and Mrs. Herbert E. Birks, who live six miles south of Mount Pulaski, observed their 40th Wed- ding anniversary Tuesday, Dec. 24, 1940. A poem was dedicated to tlem in honor of the event, with due respect to the unknown auth- or of "Katie Lee and Willie Grey," as follows: Two bright heads with eyes anew, Two young hearts so brave and true, Two bright faces terlbly blushed, Two pairs of lips so suddenly hushed, Happy boy and girl were they Forty years ago today. Standing whore the breezes blow Where the rippling waters flow, Standing by the winding brook Bending life a shepherd's crook. Half in thought and half in play, Forty years ago today. They had cheeks like cherry red, He was taller, 'most a head. She with arms like verea'-s of snow Swung a basket to and fro, As they loitered 'half in play Forty years ago today. .Pretty Jennie," Herbert said, And then there ame a dash of red. "Boys are strong and girls are weak," And tien again a flush of cheek. "And I'll carry, so I will, Your big basket up the hill." Jennie answered with a laugh, "You shall carry only half." Then with a shake of her bright curls, "Boys are weak as well as girls." Then up she started bright and gay, Forty years ago today. Do you thing that Jennie guessed Half the wisdom she expressed ? Men are only boys grown tall, Hearts don't change much after all So they started, half in play, Forty years ago today. It is strange that He.bert said, Then again a dash of red, "Life is but a slippery steep Hung with shadows cold and deep." But he didn't get his way Forty years ago today. Will you trust me, Jennie dear, Walk beside me without fear? And I'll carry, so I will, All your burdens up the hill." And they started on their way Forty years ago today. Close beside the winding brook Bending" life a shepherd's crook he still answered, with a laugh, "No, but you may carry half." So they each did have their way, Forty years ago today. Still they carry up the hill All their burdens with a will, And still she anwsers with a laugh "You may carry only half,- As she answered light and gay Forty years ago today.
