The Good Wife. It is just as you say, neighbor Green, A treasure indeed is my wife ; Such another for bustle and work I never have found in my life. But then she keeps every one else As busy as birds on the wing ; There is never a moment for rest, She is such a fidgety thing. She makes the best bread in the town, Her pies are a perfect delight, Her coffee a rich golden brown, Her crullers and pudding just right. But then, while I eat them, she tells Of the care and the worry they bring, Of the martyr-like toil she endures, Oh. she's such a fidgety thing! Mv house is as neat as a pin, You should see how the door-handles shine, And all the soft-cushioned chairs And nicely swept carpets so fine. But then sho so frets at the dust, At a fly, at a straw or a string! That I stay out of doors all I can, She is such a fidgety thing! She doctors the neighbors, oh, yes. If a child has the measles or croup, She is there with her saffrons and squills, Her dainty made gruels and soup. But then sh...

Getting a Call. First we despatched committees, By twos and threes, to urge The'labors for a Sabbath Of the Rev. Shallow Splurge. He came —a marked sensation, So wonderful his style, Followed the creaking of his boots As he passed up the aisle. nis tones were so affecting, His gestures so divine, A lady fainted in the hymn, Before the second line; And on that day he gave us, In accents clear and loud, The greatest prayer e'er addressed To an enlightened crowd. He preached a double sermon. And gave us an angel's food On such a lovely topic— . "The joys of solitude;" All full of sweet descriptions Of flowers and pearly streams, Of warbling birds and moonlit groves, And golden sunset beams. Of faith and true repentance He nothing had to say; He rounded all the corners, And smoothed the rugged way; Managed with great adroitness To entertain and please, And leave the sinner's conscience Completely at its ease. Six hundred is the salary We gave in former days ; We thought it very liberal,...

The Shoemaker, A shoemaker fat on his work-bench sat, AVith a shoo about half done; His figure was short, and his hair was gray, And his bright eyes twinkled in such a way. That you would have thought he was merely at play, Or having a bit of fun. All labor, said he, appears to be A part of mj' honored trade; They may dig, or preach, or hew or teach ; Whatever they do, you will see in each Something that's always within my reach. Or my daily custom made. The parson may smile, as down each aisle His eloquence sonorous rolls; He can only believe, wnen his sermon is o'er, And silence broods o'er the pews once more, That he only performs what I've done before ; For I am a curer of soles. The doctor delights, as he knowingly writes A prescription for pain and smart, To think that for aches he can give an ease, And also to think of the coming fees, I'm sure my profession with his agrees ; I practice the heeling art. An LLD, or a higher degree. Of scholastic lore commanding, May aspire to ...
