Tolstoi and Bcverldge.
A dispatch from St. Petersburg the

much out of the common.
It was tho meeting of Count Leo

The Prodigal's Return.
(By Father Democracy.)
Fill high the foaming beaker, and lift
the roof with noise!
My prodigals are coming back, my
dear repentant boys;
My Buckeye sons who wandered off
into the camp of pelf,
And traded off their birthright for tho
jam on Hanna's shelf.
And now they're crawling back again;
they've just been on a lark;
Their Democratic character's indorsed
by Uncle Mark.
So kill tho fattest heifer and rub tho
For the bravo McKinley Democrats
are coming home tonight.
Stand back, yo tattered grenadiers,
wjio fought in '90,
And let tho runaways perform with all
their patent tricks!
Stand back, ye sons who never flinch
in danger and defeat,
And clear a space for prodigals upon
the Mercy seat.
In silken hose and golden laco and
They'll be a dazzling spectacle upon
tho big parade.
So kill the fullest heifer and rub tho
For the brave McKinley Democrats are
coming home tonight.
And to make sure the truant lads will
care no more to roam,
Dress up a mealy platform to keep
them safe at home.
Touch lightly on taxation, and trusts
and conquest wrongs, , ,
And greet them with a roundelay of
merry Marcus songs.
Tune up the Jackson fiddles and blow
tho Thurman horn!
We'll have a rag time jubilee that lasts
till early morn.
Then pass tho foaming beaker and rub
the silver bright
For tho bravo McKinley Democrats are
coming home tonight.
