Southward Into the raving blast, sea ward into the night The AVakatipu went rolling past in the devil's own despite; For all the demons that twist and turn wherever the tempests blow Had sworn to batter her, stem to stern and drag her to drown below; She dug-her nose In the sweeping seas, slie put her head, to the gale, For 'tis just as luck and the Lord shall please if a ship will win or fall; And the devils smote her In scornful sport, but she battled, against them all; For the mascot bringing her back to port was . a baby born with'a caul.

The manager, hear ing the noise, rushed out, and, seizing the yokel by the neck thrust him into the shop, where he was told he could not leave till he paid for the damage done. Nothing was found on him but : a £100-note, and this, he pleaded, be longed to his master. The manager, however, was relent less, and pricing the pane at £5, he returned the-yokel £95. The latter went 011 his way, and was seen no more, and tho manager to this day is looking for someone to change bis £100-note, which was a forged one.
