Have a Care and Beware.
There's;; bhy, _doin coy, has a toy Which consists of % quiver and how; By repute he"s acute, rather mute, andean Aiovt A__t his aim is at random, I trow. It is clear, he's a queer little dear, and I bear That his arrows arc swif. in their 'light; Have a care, and beware how you dare anywhere Meet the youngster by day ur by night." Now ho brings 'neath his wings silken string., pretty things, And lie ________ his true lover's knot. Which he tries to disguise as he ties up his eyes, Then he's .find as _ hat every jot; But I find, though lie's blind he's inclined oft to bind Maidens' hearts with liis tr.iy "cord, of love;" So beware, have ___ care how you fare when you dare To commune with this boy W you rove. With a glance of romance he'll advance and en hance All the virtue? that he may possess; On liis knees he will please ; by degrees he will tease, Then he'll flatter and soothe and caress. So again, to be plain, if you design to retain In your service this cherub, I say, Have a care, and beware, or he'll pare c'en to bear You in triumph to Hymen one day. Dearest, Come Kiss Me. A Western lady published a poem commen cing— "Dearest, come kiss me; my lips arc yet warm, And my bosom still pants for the clasp of thy arm; The blood dances wildly through each throbbing vein; But I droop, oh! I droop for thy kisses again." To which a very verdant young gentleman re plied— J< _-roo-sa-lcm ! dearest, I dart like a fish ; My lips shall with kisses respond to thy wish; I'll check not the blood thrilling wild in each vein ; But I'll stop thee from drooping for kisses again. Then turn up thy bill, love, I'll pounce like a bird ; And through vale and through forest tho smack shall be heard If you suffer for kisses, Tm t_u_. 'you may bet;' And I'll kiss thee from morn till the sun shall be Bet. Come kiss thee 1 why, thunder ! I'm ono of that kind ; I'm tho chap of all others you're trying to find ! Ho you ______ t look farther—l'm in for a chance, Tho' the blood should 'cavort' —and your pulses may dance. So bring on the fruits, love—your kisses, I mean. For 1 dream now of nothing but peaches and cream; I'm waiting, and panting, and praying till then; So come along, dearest, as quick as you can. t—_________H_______H___n__N_SnßMH__il■_■__■ Wit and Humor. Boys love to play and girls to dis-piay. If a nut could speak it might say nono of your jaw. New Axiom—A thorn in the bush is worth two in the hand. Affectionate times when everything is about as dear as it can be. A blow from a ludy is welcome if she strikes you agreeably. The person who made the welkin ring had an abundance of brass. When is a wave like an army doctor? When it is a surgin'. AYhy is the Rinderpest like a mouse ? Because the cat'll catch it. When is a cat on tho top of a house like an or ange ?

If you throw a stone into water, what does it become before reaching bottom ? Wet Since the sun of fashion has dried up the water falls, the ladies are wearing waterwheels. Anybody can tell you about the daily rate of gold, but who can tell about the Nitrate of silver. Whence did the author of "Whittington and I bis Cat," derive his inspiration? From the _____ of history. A witch being at the stake to be burnt, saw her son there, and desired him to give her a drink. — "No mother," said he. "it would do you harm, for the drier you are the better you will burn." Charles James Fox, canvassing for an election, asked the vote of an honest mechanic, who was bitterly opposed to his interests. The fellow re fused it, but presented him with a halter. 'Tray fcir, keep it," said the wit, "for I presume it must be a family piece." Darby says "he once met ft man who made nerve-and-bons-all-healing salve; he was an en terprising fellow, and tried an experiment with it. He first cut off a dog's tail, and applied some to the stump. A new tail grew out instantly.— He then applied some to the piece of tail which be cut off, a new dog grew out and he did not know tother dog from Which.' 1 We call this a dog-on'd tale. Bill Scrugs, Esq., visited a school in Ohio and made an educational speech. He said : "Young ladies and gentlemen, you are gather ed here for the purpose of obtaining an education. Education consists in being educated to respect education and learning and education. Educa tion teaches us that education teaches us that ed ucation comprises all things learned from educa tion. Educate yourselves, and when you have a good education you will bless tho day that you acquired a good education." ~~ _.___.
