There were six men of Hindostan
(If sagos' tales are true)
Who ratner plumed themselves npan
How very much they knew.
And intimated they could give
Old Solomon, did he but live,
A f rieudly Up or two.
One day those men of Hindostan
Went out to take a ran.
And carried big umbrellas for
Protection from the sun ;
But op there came a jlmmy-cane
With forty different kinds of rain
Before there walk was done.
And then these men of Hindostan
These men of wisdom vain.
Shut all Lbutr big umbrellas up.
To keep them l.om the rain ;
And though the torrents roared and poured.
These men proclaimed "Wecm'l afford
To pat 'em ap again '"
Oh foolish men of Hindostan !
As foolish as a pup
What wonder jeers till all the land.
While sorrow fills your cup?

regard to the superiority of the Hirsch

pleasure to recommend Prof. Hirschberg
as an excellent optician, and his glasses
are simply unequalled in my experience.
