My auto, 'tie of thee, short out to poverty—of thee I chant. I blew a pile of dough on you two years ago, and now you quite re fuse to go, or won't or can’t. Through town and country side, you were my joy and pride, a hap py day. 1 loved thy gaudy hue (thy nice white tires so new,) but now you lose at least one screw, most every day. To thee, old rattle box, came many bumps and knocks; for thee I grieve, Badly thy piston’s torn, frayed are thy seats aud worn; the whooping oough affects thy horn, I do believe. Thy perfume swells the breeze, and good folks choke apd wheeze while we pass by. i paid for thee a price ’twould by a mansion twioe, now everybody’s yelling “Ice”— I wonder why? The moter has the grip, thy spark plugs the pip, and woe is thine. I too, have suffered chills, ague and kindred ills, endeavoring to pay my bills since you wert mine. Gone is my bank roll now; no more ’twould choke a cow, as onoe before. Yet if I had the mon, so help me brother John—I’d buy another car, I swan, and speed some more.—Clipper Clippings.
