To Editor 'The News and Berald:
If yon will just allow me,
A sermon I'll give in rhymes
Of the little town of Dawkins
With the chom3 of "hard times."
The boulevards are dasty,
The water supply is done,
And when we think of "hard times"
Go a fishing just lor fun.
The streets are now deserted,
To the fields the folks have gone,
To hoe the cane and cotton
And plough John Barleycorn.
The Davis House is open
To all who wish a meal,
And those who like corn dumpling
Win never i-egret tne aeai.
Myers ha9 now completed
His annual artesian well;
One well jnst lasts him twelve montb,
How it is no one can tell.
McMeekin is off ou a furlough,
With Cupid's banner unfurled;
But this is all I'll tell you,
For I do not know the girl.
Goodlett is now residing
On the hilltop, mountain high,
Gardening and melon raising
And pulling the young spring fry.
| Oar council still retains its ehief,
For George is a faithful hand;
He's always at his duties
And guards our little band.
The water, is the purest
That comes from mother earth;
'Twill quench your thirst and cool
And fill yom heart with mirth.
If you wish to "kill off" sorrow,
Come to our little town;
We'll take you on a snipe hunt
And show you all around.
You'll ne'er regret your visit,
So come if you only will,
We'll hae some giud old Scotch drink
And also pay the bill.
