The Vanished Days.
[W D. Nesbit, the humorist of
the N.. Y. American, thus "joshes"
the South in his peculiarly happy
vein. Nesbit is an "indulger" from
'way back, and living in free and
easy Gotham, he is inclined to be
gay when. referring to the "mel
ancholy" condition of Dixie]:
Lay the jest about the julep in' the
camphor balls at lost,
For the miracle has happened and
the olden days are past;
That which makes Milwaukee thirsty
does not foam in Tennessee,
And the lid in Old Missouri is as f
tight-locked as can be
0 the comic paper -colonel and his
cronies well may sigh,
For the mint is waving gayly, but the
South is going dry.
By tho stillside on the hillside in
Kentucky all is still,
For the only damp refreshment must
be dipped up from the rill;
No'th Ca'lina's stately ruler gives his
soda glass a shove,
And discusses local option with the
South Ca'lina Gov.;
It is useless at the fountain to be
%% nkful of the eye,
For the cocktail glass is dusty and
the-South is going dry.
It is water, water everywhere, and
not a drop to drink;
We no longer hear the music of the
mellow crystal clink,
When the Colonel and the Major and
the Gen' and the Jedge
Meet to have a little nip to give. their
appetite an edge,
For the eggnog now is nogless and
the rye has gone awry,
And the punchbowl holds carnations,
and the South Is going dry.
All the nighteaps now have tassels and
are worn upon the head
Not the nightcaps that were taken
when nobody went to bed;
And the breeze above the bluegrass is
as solemn as is death,
For it bears no pungent clove-tang on
its odorific breath;
And each man can walk a chalk-line
when' the stars are in the sky,
For the fizz glass now is fizzless, and
the South is going dry.
Lay the jest about the julep 'neath I
the chestnut tree at last,
For there's hut one kind of moon
shine and the olden days are
For the water wagon rumbles thro' ~
the Southland on its trip,
.And it helps no one to drop off to'
pick up the driver's whip;
For the mint beds make a pasture and
the corkscrew hangeth high,
All is still along the stillside and the
South is g1oing dry.

"I had 9, horse one titme that hilked

you whistled, balk if you ,laughed

"One day he balked and I could
not make him move forward to save
me. An old negro happened along
and supplied a remedy. Going to
the side of the road he pulled a hand.
ful of dog fennel weed. Taking this
he rubbed it under the horse's nose.
The animal shook his head once or
twice, raised up his tail and started
down the road in the merriest trot
you ever saw. That treatment of dog
fennel cured the horse of balking.
He never made another attempt to
act ugly after that."- [Nashville Ten
