Daddy Flick was a queer old Dick, Trudging along with a crooked stick, Frowsy and dirty and tattered and torn. Wearing a bat that a goat would scorn To nibble at, it was so forlorn; And I Hate, with a solemn regard for truth, That a garment inu-t be in a state of ruth, A very unsavory species of game, J fan up-town goat will reject the same. He was gray as a badger and old as a crow, Ami his ees wore queer well, beery, you know, Bleached and weak and he had, I suppose, Tlienratah-urd and peculiar nose Thatfcver invited a paser-by To think of the worth of ebriety. Naught can I say in his praise I wot. Respectable Honest? Oh, certainly not! Most people called him a wretched old sot. Only a beggar. He used to stand Djv by day, with his hat in his hand. Asking for pence from the grave and the gay. And getting them, too, I am glad to say, Not in abundance, but just enough F...

Doctrine and Devotion. BRYANT'S LAST nYMX. As shadows, cast by cloud and ran, Flit o'er the summer grass, So, in thy sight, Almighty One! Earth's generations pass. And while the years, an endless host, Come pressing swiftly on, The brightest names that earth can boast Just glisten, and are gone. Yet doth the Star of Bethlehem shed A luster pure and tweet; And still it leads, as once it led, To the 3Icssiah's feet.
