Prepare to pound ; drugs must be ground; the brazei. mortar ring, And the pestle roll in the marble bowl, and the scales will have to swing. it is merry Christmas tide, when worthy people eat Five times as much as is good for them, drink ten times more than meet. ; The fields lie bare in the winter air, or yield beneath the plough. I Though tallow be they, w’e make our hay; ’ti* f the doctor’s harvest now. The boys are home for the holidays, and they teed unchecked by rule j Of dietetic discipline and economy at school, | Roast beef tney cram, and turkey, and ham, or sausages tuck in, | And pudding of plum, until they become filled | nearly to the chin. But oh! the vast capacity which the juveniles evince! Each urchin still some room can find within for the pie of mine#, Or tart 01 jam and blanc mange they cram ami their skins with jelly stutij And custard and cream, and yet they deem that they have not had enough. Desert succeeds; new appetite its delicacies w ake, And they gobble up apples, oranges, nuts, al mond*. raisins, cake; Besides a deal ol candied peel,and dates, French plums, and tigs ; Whence business to us shall accrue, so please the little pigs. The revel is not ended yet—lor pastime they stand up, And that restores their appetite, and heartily they sup. They gorge a mash of rich sweet trash—at mid nignt seek tbeir beds, The sun will smile, next morn, on bile, aud no end of aching heads. There will be pills lor thee to grind, and draughts for thee to pour, And powders thou w ilt have to weigh; provided be, therefore. And mingle and make all ready to take, each remedy and cure, For leeling queer, of Christmas cheer to come which will be sure. Mix plenty of the dose of black, roll many a pill ol blue, And also compound colocynth, and compound aloes too; And the powder grey in doses weigh, likewise the Fill?: Jalap: Aud the Pulv: Khei—they’ll be wanted by right many a little chap. To remedy too much mince pie put upVin: A ill i m : Tart: And Ipecacuan which will lik® benefit impart, And to distress trom lond excess in pudding give rebel, And the system clear of the wine and beer to gethei with the beef. Of Senna good provision make, and Scaiumouy as well; Divide in doses manifold a lot of Calomel. Cheeks w ill grow pale on beef and ale, il maid ens dauce and romp, Quinine at hand have, tnerefore, and Mislara Fern Comp. See that our lancets are all sharp; our cupping glasses sound; Scarificators springing well, and well, il need be, ground; Our leeches ail right, and inclined to bite; for blood must needs be shed, In case it should, through too much food, be determined to the head. See that Unguent: Cantharides is at thine elbow nigh; For blisters it may also be our duty to apply; And since we’re atraid that so many our aid this Christmas will require, The led lamp clean—that it may be seen—and look to the night-bell wire! 4F«* A Card to the Lsdle«.—br.
