THS DETERMINED PROPHET.
"Well git bad weather ylt," he aald.
When March was warm and pleasant.
"Don't ye go an be misled
By theae nloe days at present.'
And aa the days kept fair and nice
And winter grew. more distant.
He kept predicting enow and ice.
For he la quite consistent.
"When April days came laughing In
He said: "1 11 bet my gizzard
This month will bring, aa sure as sin,
A record breaking blizzard."
When the last fleck of loe had gone
Along the river channels,
' He aald: "You'd better keep 'em on"
Referring thus to flannels.
And now when breaths of rare perfume
Come drifting on the breexes.
He wears a look of settled gloom
And not a prospect pleases.
He says this weather's a deceit.
The weather man's a Nero
Who'll suddenly turn on the sleet
And force things down to zero.
The falling snow will deeply drift
Along about December,
And then his eyebrows he will lift
And chortle: "You remember!
I've been a-tellin' you 'twould be
Just like It is at present.
Ye cau't put too much faith, ye see.
In weather that is pleasant.'
