A Girl's Idea of Bora.
At a recent public school examination
for girls this composition was
% handed in by a girl of twelve:
"The boy is not an animal, yet they
can be heard to a considerable in>
tance. When a boy hollers he opens
his big mouth like frogs, but girls hold
their toung til they are spoken to, and
they answer respectable, and tell just
how it was.
"A boy thinks himself clever because
he can wade where the water is
deep. When the boy grows up he is
called a husband, and he stops wading
and stays out nights, but the
grown-up girl is a widow and keeps
house."?New York Journal.
