Ask JleNot to Drink.
Fair lady, ask me not to drink ;
A toast a thee to-night
For broken yows and blasted hope
Expose the demon's blight ; ..
Put back the wine, I dare not taste
Put back the sparkling bowl
Far who hath quaffed a draught so deep,
! And rpacficd a blissful goal? .
Oh ! ask me not, there lies within " ' '
A poison deep and dire t
And every drop but serves the mors
To flui Utv utenj pre j
Each draught will quench my sense of gnift,
Ana oust yontn s budding nope,
Bach drop will sink me deeper still
In mora night to grope. ,
Oh I press me not to tquch the cup,
Within are glaring eyes, "
And starving widows, hungry babes,
And leeipg orphans' cries 1
Whom the Oods destroy they first make drunk
Then ask me not to drink '
Ph, teinpt Die notj but spare my soul
From iUatli-'s eternal brink. .
I have three sisters mlhtr fair,
Like angels around my way
Whose'love Is like the stars that hqe
With undiminished ray
Shalt they be doomed to see me fojl
A prey to maddening drink
And sundered bo the love that binds,
Or snaps the golden link f
Another sleeps where sadly ivsvEj
The willows In the vale
And midnight whispers In the sky
Come on the sighing gale
She passed away as summer's breath,
Iu life's Incipient bloom
Then tempt me not, I would not max
Her slambers in the tomb. .

One of those annoying, yet ludicrous

vonerable father, who had bis eold soecs

Adonis jumped out of the boggy prepar
atory to assisting the young lady in, but
sue suaoeniy toot one ol those strange
freaks to whioh the desr'se are all sub

four feet from the steps, and considelra-
Diy oeiow the step upon which stood the
young lady. She probably wanted to
oonvince her lover that she was not clum
sy if she was fat, snd thought that this
would be a good time to show him her
agility. Be this as it may, she gave a
jump and landed ip toe center of. the
buggy, if she had stopped there, all
would have been well, but alas 1 the thin
boards of the bottom of the buggy, una
ble to stand the pressure, gave way, and
tne young lauy continued her descent.
There was a piereini! scream i a tluDe
ing horse with a youug man holding to
him'; a bundle of mHulin in tbo buirsrv.
and two little gaiter boots pointing to
wuuin en mooes oi too ground under it.
Paterfamilias rushed to the rescue and
detaohed the horse from the buggy.
He then got up on one side, and the
young nan on the other, snd they al-

Tha boards had broken in the canter.
