ll THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS. FOR HOME READING Eiyah Drown. Elijah Brown, the cobbler, was enamored of the muse, And all hia time was given np to stanzas and to shoes. He ncornod to live a tuneless life, infiloriously mute, And nightly laid his lust aside to labor at his lute, For he bad registered an oath that lyrical re nown Bhould trumpet to the universe the worthy name of Brown, And, though hia own weak pinions failed to reach the heights of song, His genius hatched a brilliant scheme to help his oath along, And all his little youngsters as they numer ously came Ho christened after poets In the pantheon of fame That their pootio prestige might impress them and inspire A noble emulation to adopt the warbling lyre. And Virgil Brown and Danto Brown and Tasso Brown appeared, And Milton Brown and Byron Brown and Shakespeare Brown were reared. Longfellow Brown and Bchiller Brown arrived at man's estate, And Wordsworth Brown and Goldsmith Brown filled up the family slate. And he believed hia gifted boys, predestined to renown, In time would roll the bowlder from the bur led name of Brown. But still the epic is unsung, and still that worthy name Is missing from the pedestals npon the hills of fame, For Dante Brown's a peddler In the vegetable line, And Byron Brown Is pitching for the Tusca rora nine ; Longfellow Brown, the lightweight, la a pugil ist of note, And Goldsmith Brown's a deckhand on a Jer sey ferryboat; la Wordsworth Brown Manhattan has an esti mable cop, And Schiller Brown's an artist In a Brooklyn barber shop; A roving tar is Virgil Brown npon the bound ing seas, And Tasso Brown Is usually engaged in mak ing cheese ; The cobbler's bench Is Milton Brown's, and there he pegs away, And Shakespeare Brown makes cocktails in a Cripple Creek cafe.
