£HB BULL-'EM-OVER PEOPLE.
"Ain't it painful though. to meet 'em— Oèmê you'll savvy who I mean; Sort of folks that's always finding Spots on folks you thought were clean Hero's the sort of jolts they hand you Sort that gives you lasting hurts; "8he a winning glittle creature— Aip't it awful that she flirts?" "You may know some jolly fellow With a countenauce you like— Just about as clean a looker As you'd ever chance to strike Comes this hammer-arm'd despoiler, Ahvays watching out for kinks Saying: "Bully little fellow— Simpful shameful that he drinks!" "Or some hard-working: fellow-being: That you" ve learned to know of late, , Fighting bravely and unaided 'Gainst a stubborn, frowning fate; Jlist a mention inadvertent To this butt-'em-over pest; "Acts hard up t' keep it quiet How he's featherin' his nest." "Then that other fellow whose hand clasp Oft had saved you from despair— Surely there's no blot or blemish On his 'scutcheon white and fair. But this human turkey buzzard Seeking strains on every life, Sneers: When you see him with his wife. He's never half so jolly "Oh, these butt-'em-over people, With their poison-pointed darts Aimed always at fellow-beings, Tearing idols from our hearts! When our eyes are blind to falling God, in mercv, keep them blind If to sec would start us probing For the frailities we might find." PRETTY BIRTHDAY PARTY. Mrs. A. T.
