A lady met a lady ,
On the street the ether day
(Oh this was in another town,
A million miles away!)
The lady to the lady said,
"How do you 'do, my dear?"
And, safely past, she curled her lip
Into a pretty sneer!
The lady whom the lady met
(Or, now, it wasn't you!)
Smiled such a pretty smile- and said,
"My dear, how do you do?"
When she was past she ceased to
And what do you suppose?
She wagged her head a little and
Turned up her prety nose!
I don't know why they did it,
And I don't know -why they do;
I only know what I did see
r (No, neither one was you!)
BEJ "That was a powerful sermon Dr.
Fourthly gave us today.
. "Powerful iB right He woke me
up five or six times." N. Y. World..
The prices of diamonds and Strad
ivarius violins have -gone up; Now
we are all sore.
