It was the stern porter stout

idle brushboy small,"
"Come hither, come hither, thou brush boy
small, and quickly telMo mc,
What is thy 'lay' and what thy pay, In my

I stand all day in the wash room gay, and I
brush each euralug guest,
I brush the coat of the man from Maine, and
with that he Is well content ;
Not a word doth he say, butheskippeth away,
and he glveth me never a cent;
And the broadcloth suit, of the man from the
west and eke his old slouch hat,
And every time he gives me a dime ; now bless
x him kind heaven for that !
The dry-goods clerk hecometh In haste for to
meet his girl he is late.
But when I am done ho pokcth fun, and he
saith.'put it down on the slate.'"
The 'convict suit' of State Street man I brush
with exceedingly care ;
He tlpsmea half, as he glveth nie chaff,
Forhescenteth a 'rise' In the air.

the gripsack of ponderous weight.
As he turneth to go he whtsperetli low,

So all the day in the washroom gay I s'ling the
light whisp broom.
Some give me a penny and some not any, and
erstwhile there comet h a boom,
For ti.e Harvaid man cotneth adown the stair
a smoking his cigarette,
His eyes they are red his feet like lead, and I
ween he Is slightly upset.
In his ulster pocket ho putteth his hand aid
whatever he first shall touch
He glveth It me, nor stoppeth to see if.it be
little ormuuh ;
And away he hleth to Kowdoiu Square to

to slumber behind the bar.
And thus my liege," said the brush boy small,
"I take what comes to me.
And I frequently collars as much as $3 a week
Up spoke that stern proprietalre, "Now by my
grandam's beard !
Thy tale is strange, aye, strange indeed, the
strangest ever I've heard.
An' thou speakest tiue thou gettest away with
tilteon times the work,
At a tenth tho pay of that rooster gay, my
tancy and gilt edged clerk.
And art thou married my brushboy small?"
"Nay, sir, my years are but nine."
"I've a daughter fair, with curly hair By my
Register! she shall be thine.
No more thou'lt stand In the washroom gay ;
thou shalt have my head clerk's place,
And each coming guest, lrom East or West,
shall bow before thy face.
Full seventy years I've a landlord beeu, and I
thought that I knew it all,
From tho lancy clerk to tho chambermaid

But now I seethat my eyes were blind, and
grlet to my soul I take
That I never knew, till I interviewed you, that

Smith Was Out.
Detroit Free Press.
A Griswold street lawyer was sitting in
his office the other week when a stranger
appeared at the door and said :
" Beg pardon, but can yon tell me where
Smith's olfice is?"
44 Yes sir next door."
The stranger uttered his thanks and
passed to the next door, which was locked.
Returning to the lawyer he said :
" Smith seems to bo out ?"
" Of course he is. If you had asked that
question in the first place I should have
answered it by telling you so.''
Tho visitor had a troubled look on his
face as he passed out of the building, but
that look was gone when he returned the
next day and inquired of the lawyer:
41 How muqh will vou charge me for a
verbal opiniorrin a little matter?"
The case was stated and the opinion
given, and the stranger was moving away
when' the lawyer said :
44 My fee, please."
44 1 haven't a cent to pav vou."
44 Of course not. If you had asked me
that question in ithe first place I should
havo answed by telling you so. Good

"You had a full house to-night," observed
"Oh, yes the house is always full. Davy
Crockett is very popular, but it exasperates
me to be compelled to play it all the
time. I often wish I had never seon nor
heard tell of the play, or at least that I
had quit it long before the public had
thoroughly associated me with the character.
I guess it is really believed that I
am a veritable Davy Crockett. When I
appeared as Richelieu in this city, a character
I played with wonderful success before
adopting this, one of the papers attributed
Crockett language to me. Of course
it was a lie, but the author no doubt lied
