Down at Noscihv'a in the Strand I found, ooi
fateful dny,
portrait that pined for as only
may—
print of Mine, she flourished yean
ago.
Was B&rtolozzi'a daughter and a thoroughbred,
you know!
A clean and handsome print it waa, and rhiij
at thirty bob—
That's what told the salesman as 1 choked a
rising sob
But I hung around Noeeda's as it were a holy
shrine.
When 1 wan broke in London In the fall of *89.
At Davey's, in Great Russel street, were auto*
graphs galore.
And Mr. Davey used to let me con that pre
cious store
Sometimes I read what warriors wrote, some
time* a klup's command,
Hut oftencr still a poet's verse writ in a meagef
hand
Lamb, Byron, Addison and Burns, Pope, John*
BOD,
Swift and Scott-
It needed but a paltry sum to comprehend tht
lot
Yet when friend Davey marked 'em dowifc
what could I but dccline?
For I waa broke in London in the fall of *991
Of antique swords and spears 1 saw a vast and
dazzling heap
That Curio Kenton offered me at prices pass*
ing cheap:
And, ohl tho quaint ohl bureaus and the warm*
trig pans of brass.
And the lovely hideous freaks I found in pew»
tor and in glass!
And, oh! tho sideboards, candlesticks, the
cracked old china plates.
The clocks and spoons from Amsterdam that
antedate all dates
Of such superb monstrosities I found an end
less mine.
When 1 was broke Ixrndon in tho fall of *891
Oh, yo that haukcr after boons that othen
idle by—
The battered things th*t please the son)
though they may
vex.
Tb« UaseaMaable Seraaader.
Out in the chill of the midnight gloom
Stood the youth with hi* light guitar.
Unheeding the'microbes' threatening doom.
Nor the chanticleer's note afar.
And he sang full long, full loud, full sweet.
To his lady lore on the window seat.
Who gayly sent him from time to time
A bud or a nosegay to cheer his rhyma.
And this is the lay
That would skyward stay
When he cleared his throat and began to |U*)n
"Oh. lady sweet, whose smile I prize.
Unloose to me, I pray.
The fettering fringes of thine eye*
Keep not their light away.
The stars abova are gleaming clear
Each sylvan voice is still
Nor conies the prying sun to peer
Across the eastera kill.

A Mighty Mean Triek.
A 6-year-old child with a large appetite
and a special fondness for pancakes and
maple sirup arrived at the breakfast table
the other morning and forthwith demand
ed cakes.
"Eat your oatmeal first," said her father.
"How many dukes cun I havof" said the
greedy young lidy.
The father, who is given to practical
jokes, cogitated for a moment and then
•aid:
"If you eat ope plateful of oatmeal you
can have three! cakes, but if you eat two
platesful you cln have four cakes, and if
you eat three platesful you can have six
cakes."
The child accepted the arrangement
promptly, and one plateful of oatmeal dis
appeared in a twinkling then another
plateful followed slowly, and a third was
consumed witk evident difficulty
The cakes acd sirup were then prepared.
The youngster had been growing mors
solemn every moment, and when one
mouthful of cake had been disposed of
suddenly roand ont in anguish:
"My tummy'a full of oatmeal and I can't
sat any cakes at all—boo-hoo!''—Chicago
