Gay Old Dogs.
"You can't teach an old dog new
"Oh, I don't know. They all want to
try the taujro and the inavixt."
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY.
In speaking of a person's faults,
Pray don't forget your own,
Remember, those with homes of
Should seldom throw a stone;
If we have nothing else to do
But talk of those that sin,
'Tis better we commence at home
And from that point begin.
We have no right to judge a man
Until he's fairly tried.
Should we not like his company,
We know the world is wide;
Some may have faults and who has
The old as well as the young
Perhaps we may, for aught we know.
Have fifty to their one.
I'd tell you of a better plan,
And find it works full well;
To try my own defects to cure
Before of others tell;
And though I sometimes hopo to bo
No more than some I know,
My own short-comings bid me let
The faults of others go.
Then let us all when we commence
To slander friend or foe,
Think what harm one word would do
To those we little know;
Remember curses sometimes, like
Our chickens, "roost at home";
Don't speak of others' faults until
We have none of our own.

won't bo as large as we had expected.
Within 24 hours after it was announc
ed that you were to speak here more
than a thousand of our people were
