Simmons are also rendered palatable,

Ah! that reminds me of an old
b ichelor's poem.
"The leaves are falling, falling fust.
And chilly Mows the northern l)at.
The fields have lost their bloom.

And dreary are the groves and glades,
One ruy still lights the gloom,
The teasing 11 y has run its race.
No more with towel and pillow case
We need to rise at night to chase
Mosquitoes round the room."
