STARS AND STRIPES

From the October 1888 issue of The Christian Science Journal


"What can be more lovely?" Said Mother to Ned; And held up before him, So rosy and red, A dish of tomatoes, Rich, juicy, and bright. "Say, are they not pretty, Thus gleaming in light?" "Oh yes," said our Neddy, With something of brag, "One thing is more handsome,— The American flag!" Well said, my brave youngster.
