any emergency that may arise. Cap
tain Blum, the commander of the
local company, seems to have been
entirely equal to the emergency, and
as 'a result a dozen of the mob are

A pair of shoes, hat and violin,

For US alone,

Has turned from Him and gone.
They are drinking and cursing
Their lives away,
Committing some sin
Poor sinners, they'll wish,
In the judgment day,
That they had never sinned
Their lives away.
Some are living Christians,
Doing good every day,
While their mothers and fathers
In their dark graves lay.
Those are the ones
That will reach that land,
And join in the fair angels' band.
