Rub a dub, dub, We men of the hub Have got up a grand pow-wow : We started the light. And think it is right To keep all we got, anyhow. As tierce as a boar We went in for war, And robbed on the land and the sea ; Now it's o'er we appeal, As there's nothing to steal, Let us have a Peace Jubilee. In unity live, Forget and forgive, And bury all feuds and complaints; Let this bo our song— War and thieving are wrong, Except they are done by us Saints. Now "let us have pe/'ce," As there's no one to fleece: Though Chandler and Sumner may howl, It won't _t to try on Our tricks with the lion ; He knocks down our bonds with a growl.

FINETTE. Finette was young, Finette was fair, And never a lover had she, Finette she cried in her young despair, '"Twere better we never should be ; The dance will go, and it irks me so, Here by the lonely tree." Gerome was hale, but Gerome was pale, For a lover he fain would be. And he would not know though we told him so, That the maiden he chose was free ; So Gerome he stood in the dusky wood, And a sorrowful wight was he. Finette she said, as she raised her head,, "Somebody watches for me." Gerome, he said, with a lofty head, "My lady is looking for me." Gerome came one, and Finette came two, Two little steps balf way; Gerome, he sighed, and Finette, she crier, But never a tear had they. The dance is done, but the game is won, Merrily ends the day. *_. A Lyric Poem. I met her by the seller dore, The look she give was cold and stum; Her eyes looked pitchforks into mine, And mine looked pisen into hern- For we had loved in days gone by; Hei daddy said that 1 might take her; But, a...

Boil it Down. Whatever you have to say, my friend, Whether witty, or grave, or gay, Condense as much as ever you can, And say it the readiest way ; And whether you write of rural affairs, Or particular things in town, Just take a word of friendly advice— Boil it down. For ifyou go spluttering over a page, When a couple of lines would do, Your butter is spread so much, you see, That the bread looks plainly through, So when you have a story to tell, And would like a little ronown, To make quite sure of your wish, my friend, Boil it down. When writing an article for the press, Whether prose or verse, just try To utter your thoughts in the fewest words, And let them be crsip and dry. And when it is finished, and you suppose It is done exactly brown, Just look it over again, and then Boil it down. For editors do not like to print An article lazily long, And the general reader does not care For a couple of yards of song. So gather your wits in the smallest space, If you'd win the author's...

A Talk with the Baby. BY EMILY HUNTINGTON MILLER. Baby, baby ! come sit on my knee, Nobody's waking but you and me; Cat and kitten are fast asleep, But still my wearisome watch I keep; Rocking the cradle to and fro, Singing merrily, singing low, All the rhymes that ever were sung Since long ago. when the world was young. Ten o'clock ! do you mean to stay Broad awake till the peep of day I Baby 1 now, there is no one near, Whisper a secret in my ear; How did you learn the wondrous speech All our wisdom could never teach ! What is the meaning of all your words, Soft as the twitter of rustling birds? Nobody knows what schemes may wait Hidden away in your nodding pate; Dear little dreamer, tell me true, What are you planning to be and do! Baby, baby ! your fingers white. Reach for the big, round moon at night; Strive in their eager grasp to hold, Wandering rags of the sunshine's gold; When shall we ever make you know How, in the sun, the blossoms blow? How the winds run on fairy feet Ov...

"Poor boy, mamma will kiss it,'' My finest, fattest turkey dead ! Our next birth-day will miss it. This shirt, it needs a button on, These pants, they need a brush. 'Tis ten, and time your pa was gone, Oh, baby darling, husn ! A dozen pairs of hands I need, And strength to wield them all: A dozen pair of feet to tread The housewife's mazy thrall; A dozen heads to take a share, In this great throbbing pain, And hearts—nay, there is one where care Is never taken in vain !

But-it don't take a car- | pet-bagger long to pack up. His wardrobe consists of one shirt, marked "John Smith, ' one pair pants, one pea-jacket, one old hat, one second-hand tooth-brush, one dozen Sumner's speeches, and one hundred copies Ritual Union j L.ague. Carpet-baggers never wear drawers nor socks. This is an infallible method of dis tinguishing them from white folks.
