V BJones wi» ferklc and fair.
With eye* like heaven, and O, Turk hairl
midnight raven's wing e^tuM cvmparw
A moment with it, I tell you what.
If ever you loved a 6ckla maid.
You'll know of what stuff Bessie Ji tiee was
made;
'■i, Bessie, the wicked, winsome jade,
With lips like an apricot!
I called her ••angel," and she said “hushl"
I swore that I loved her, sail then it was‘tush:*
1 strange little f ggle and poppy like blush.
And “l don’t care tn change my lot!"
I said. “Then I'll blow out my orains fickle
maid!'*
I wouldn t-—you've anna to spare I’m afraid!**
O, Bessie, the wicked, winsome jade.
With lips like an apricot!
I rushed from the h<u»e in wild despair;
I might—or I might not—have torn tny hair;
Rut no matter —that's neither here nor there!
1 loved, g»t jilted, ignored the spot;
Had the blue*, recovered, hut never essayed
Ta pay court t» another, on account. 1 ‘m alratd
Of B —sie—the wicked, wi.-.souie jade,
With i'ps like an apricot!
Well, she married % man twice as old
As herself—(I»d bless yon, the truth must he
told!
She endured an old man for the sake of hi*
gold,
And l thmk you will envy her not;
\l lea*t till the "old chap" is quietly laid
lu the tomb of his fathers—long gout le the
shade.
0 Bc«*ic, thou wicked, winsome jade.
With lips like an apricot!
*'An old man's darling"—"A young man's
slave!"
Wai the soul excuse that n»y fickle love gave
Kor wed ling a man with oue foot in the grave,
And I wished her muc joy of her lot;
tnd I—though I m single, and forty, and staid.
Should have mated, no doubt, but for this fickle
maid.
0, the wicked, winsome jade,
With lips like an apricot!
TAKE YOl It COUNTY PAPKIt.
W«ll Sqnirr ynu pay you don't take
your county pup r,'
No Major I get city papers on belter
tern.**, ho take a couple ol them.'
‘lint Squire these county papers are a
great conveuiei ce to u*; the more we en
oo»irage them the better the editror can
make them.'
I don’t know that they are 01 any con
▼enience to me.'
'I he turrit you sold last spring was ad
\ erased in one of tl»**ui and you thereby
•ibismed :t customer.'
•Very true Major, but I paid three dol
lars tor it.’
'Now if the neighlmre had not main*
taihe i that pren*, you would have been
without the ntcana of publishing your
daughter's marriage and your brother's
death Inst eummer.*
*Yes, ye*, but—'
'And your nephew whs a candidate for
the Legislature, yon was highly gratified
at nis newspaper ^de'ence, which elected
him and cost you nothing.'
*Y e s, but ihc-e little thirds are new*
to the readers and make the people take
the papers.’
No, no, Sq lire not if they were all
bke you. Now I tell you Squire, the day
will coin** when somebody will write a
long eulogy mi your lif*-, character Arc .
• d the printer wdl put it in ty pe, with a
heavy black rule over and under it, and
wi h all your riches this will be done for
you as a grave »or a pauper. Your wealth,
liberality a .1 all such will be apok.-nof.
but the printer as lie spells the words in
• • ranging the ty pe, will remark. ‘Poor,
mean, devil, lie never took the paper and
is now swindling the printer out of hi*
