Now the merrle ploughboy hlketh
Down the back stairs on a Jump,
To the bar of soap alluring
In the basin by the pump,
'iben ho sprlntcth to the stable
Where he cuttcth up the leed,
I')r the patient cattle waiting
And the old rheumatic steed.
Then he chokcth down his fodder-
Pork In fat and overdone;
Enatcheth up thn soggy biscuit
Which he cateth on the run.
Hcrw he humpeth on the harness
In a momentary Jiff
On the framework-of the horses
That arc standing sore and stiff.
He snrmounteth lady fashion
On the off nag ery prim
Ah' to sltteth there astraddle
Meancth splitting limb from l'.mb.
Where the suckers wallcth eager
In the mllldam there below,
Cbtteth he with wistful longing
Glances full of tears and woe.
Then he turneth up the furrow
And the nngle wormlct, he,
frqulrmeth there In nil his glory
In abandon gay nnd free.
And the ploughboy's perturbation
Alreth words n full of woe
"it s dcrn tough to be n ploughln'
When the fish arc bltln' so'"

when he presented himself at the re

to sign his name. The recruiting ser

which the lad dashed off his signature,
and 'at once enlisted him and detailed
him for Immediate duty as clerk to
