Comies hither many a seore, si ;

hand of gfory, which I take to have been the

on the gallows, and which the witches turned
into a patent nagician's lamp, as would lead
a burglar s-ife into a::y donicile which he
might wish to plunder. We ain't burglars

a malefactor. (Right, right !) Well, right or

Two of these blacks miet, and one had a 6ne

that niggers are useful il, the way of morn
