Author: Mrs. Effie I Canning Carlton, died Jan. 7, 1940 in Boston, about 84. Composed when she was about 15, in 1870 say. _ S.F. Examiner, Jan. 8, 1940. -Father, dear father, come home with me now,  The clock in the steeple strikes ten.  Old-time School Songs. Rueben, Rueben, I_ve been thinking, What a fine world this would be, If the men were all transported,  Far beyond the northern sea.  Poplars. _ Four poplar trees stood on the east side of the house at Little Oak _ three in a row and the fourth so placed as to make with its companion two tall columns which furnished supports for the ropes of a swing where play of this sort was gratified. Poplars, tall, slender, compact, give to a flat country a certain relief, a certain air of elegance. One notes their satisfying in the landscapes painted by Corot and many another artist.
