THE Si.JV TWO CENTS STAMPS.
We.com", new Ivs cent slamp,
We’ve been waiting for you sometime;
F a- mnv we can buy five slumps,
IT, the whole amount of one dime.
You e col’eye boy's change is scarce,
Cun’; afford often, to buy a stamp ;
And il was lucky you came along,
So as to keep them out of a cramp.
As for us, we don’t intend to cry,
Because the three Cent stamp is dead.

Two cents now brings the checks,
Just as well as the good old three;
Two cents brings the letter,
From the girl we cannot see.
So to you, new stamp, I wish
Along, happy continued earner,
May you bringjoy to many a heart,
And drive away many a tear.

with his imposing manner and im
pressive voice, slowly and distinctly
repeated the marriage ceremony |

the Lucy Cobb Institute, appeared on
the stage and began to play upon the
costly organ, given them by G. 1.
