Reproof to Scoffers. The usual fate of reformers Has o’ertaken the Alphas at last, Their soulful aspirings for beauty and grace Have met with a cold, chilling blast. They give us no credit or favor For things we have done or will do, We are dreamers and boasters and ravers, We are fickle and false thro* and thro’. First, come the inquisitive tourists Painfully seeking with noses in air A cleanly spot for the soles of their 1 feet, Bqt not a spot could they find anywhere. They thought our high aspirations Were only some vaporing dream, | The meaningless echoes of club room i talk, ' Pretentious and not what they seem. | But why have the gods condescended , To inquire if we do as we ought? We never aspired their notice to gain, Their favor we never have sought. Quite content to benefit mortals. Self-approval is the meed that we ask; 1 It is easy to criticise busier men, I To demean or belabour their task. But there’s one thing they can do to help us And ’tis something we hope they wil...

Then a mere kid, he used to sit on the “forms” and sing for the printers when “copy” was slow. Sometimes when the type would get , “pied” and the boys get to a-carsing, his sweet voice would break into I melody above the angry babble and lull them into good humor again. | But his ambition never ran as high ;as journalism.

I There were the widowed mother and I the six or seven brothers and sisters ; back in Cornwall dependent upon j him, who needed pecuniary aid. So I he moved over to a blacksmith shop and learned the trade, that he might keep the wolf away from the door of his old home ...
