IParifled Too Much.
A dilapidated looking old man, who
i was chewing sassafras root with grent
, energy, suddenly appeared in the wa.t

river, and as he approached a man who
i was waiting for a western rain he polled

his hand and said:
My friend, yon are looking yaller
about the eves, which is a sore sign that
yonr blood is in a bad tt ite. One bottle
of my blood purifier will restore yon to

"All right, mister, all right. If a
feller wants to keep on looking yaller
about the eyes when a pannycea is at

Ibout the middle of April you'll be on
your back with a ppell of bilious fever,
i but you needn't lay it np acin me."
The next rierson approached was a se

the house, bnt I don't think so. Here's
your pannycea, and if yon don't want it
I can't compel you to btiy it."
The third person was a man with a

Whrn Fathvr Carvea the Duck.
We all look on with anxious eyes
When father carves the duck.
And mother almost always sitrbs
When father carves the duck;
Then all of us prepare to rise.
And hold our bibs before our eyes.
And be prepared for some surprise.
When father carves the duck.
He braces np and grabs a fork
Whuue'er be carvtM a duck.
And won't allow a soul to talk
Until he's carved the duck.
The fork is jabbed into the sides.
Across tae breast the knife he slides.
While every careful person hides
From flying chips of duck.
The platter's always sure to slip
When father carves a duck.
And how it makes the dishes skip!
Potatoes fly aiauckl
The squash and cabbage leap in space.
We get some gravy in our face.
And father mutters Hindoo grace
Whene'er he carves a duck.
We then have learned to walk around
The dining room and pluck
From off the window ailla and walls
Our share of father's duck.
While father growls and blows and Jaws,
And swears the knife was full of flaws.
And mother Jeers at him because
He couldn't carve a duck.
