Cody and Ed.
Look at the tender and loving faces of these
two. Can you not imagine the Platonic friendship that binds them together? Of course it
was love at first sight. I will describe their
first meeting. They gazed on each other for
the first time; their eyes became brimming
pools; their lips trembled, perhaps at the happy
thought of their use later on; their faces
brightened, and a deep blush slowly appeared on
each of their countenances. If one were near
one might see Cupid's arrow speeding towards a
safe retreat, their hearts. One would also see
Cupid, himself, grotesquely expressing his joy
at his own handiwork. And now we wish you
every joy. We bear you no evil thoughts.
May you continue as one for time immemorial, until at last, Cupid plucks
from your hearts the arrow that joined you together, and leaves you
stranded by the wayside.
Jack and Jill
Another of Cupid's successes. Young
Keeler is of a very romantic frame of
mind, he even bears the first name of
Dan Cupid himself. Gerwe, although
not in the least romantic, was attracted
by the. cherubic expression on Keeler's face. Notice it in the picture.
Does it not make you think of angels and the world to come? Can you
blame John for associating so much with him? Can you blame him for
keeping Danny in his room all the time and thereby exciting the jealousy of
Kinnavey ? Of course not, we all understand that they are soulmates and
that, just as two polar bodies in the sky above are mutually attracted, so
also are our friends John and Dan. They cannot help it so why should we
Sheriff and Crummy
Can you imagine a big hulking man associating with a young kid, just entered
into his teens ? If so you have a mental
picture of these two that will fit them
exactly. All they talk about is this
soft mushy stuff, and one time they got so soft that Bill gave John all his
soft boiled eggs, thereby denying himself the sustenance of the "fruit de
poulet." John keeps a diary and every day something about Bill M. goes
into that dairy, such things as, "Bill ditched chapel this morning," "Bill did
this or that," etc. But why rave more about them ? Let them go on until
this mutual ardor has died out in each of them, and then, and not till then,
will we be able to get any good out of John and Bill.
