Bores. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 21 August 1868

Bores. Loafers who sit down 111 an editor's sanctum and read newspapers to him. Mothers who force disinterested people to notice their children. Ladies who crowd you out of your seat in the stage or cars. Squalling babies in railroad cars. A young gentleman fresh from college. A man that reads his poetry to you. A pair of lovers. A man that wants to borrow money from you. Creditors of every description. Wives who make ' you go to church with them. Mosquitoes and newsboys. The man who sits down at your desk. The man who reads all the newspapers but never buys one. THE Ohio Statesman, a leading Copperhead paper, recently received a club of thirty new subscribers, which is pronounced the largest list ever raised (for said paper) in one district, and the "inference is," says the Statesman, " that the Democracy is looking up." FATHER ABRAHASI has now at least twenty clubs in Ohio, the least of which is over thirty, and the inference is that Democracy will continue to " look up." ...

^nr little Voltes. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 21 August 1868

^nr little Voltes. Crootlet. The evening was bright with the moon of May, And the lawn was light as though lit by day; l-'rom my windows 1 looked to see Croquet. Of mallets and balls the usual display, The hoops all stood in areli array. I said to myself. Soon we'll see Croquet. But the mallets and bulls umheeded lay, And the uutid and the youth, side by side, sat they, And 1 said to myself, Is that Croquet'.' 1 saw the scamp—as it was light as day—Put his arm 'round her waist in a loving way, And he squeezed her hand. Was that Croquet'.' While the red rover rolled forgotten away, He whispered all a lover should say, And he kissed her lips. What a queer Croquet! Silent they sat 'neath the moon of May, And I knew by her blushes she said not nay, And I thought in my heart, Now that's Croquet. THE BONNET.—Shakspeare must have had a vision of the modern bonnet when, in " The Taming of the Shrew," he wrote the following: I'etruchio.—" Why, this was moulded on a jiorri tiger, A velv...
