(Be careful, muses, of his heels )
Thy drooping ears ami languid eyes,
Most subtle beast, might well breed
But thou shalt not obliquely launch thy
At me, thou wily rogue!
Now I have sometimes seen the unwary
Of African descent hoisted heavenward.
Contorted, writhing, by thy merciless
Then thou wonld’st turn thy luring,
To gaze upon thy melancholy work,
Or lure with basilisk glance some victim
Dealer in pyrotechnic novelties
Thou verily art loaded, c
From early morning till the steps
Of dewy dusk imprint the sky with stars.
I would not draw within
The magic circle of thy cognizant heels

PIIOFES SIGNAL CARDS.
He Delivers a Fine Address to the Chil
dren of America.
Dear Shildren: You vhas all right
Doan’ let somebody make you belief
dot you daon’ haf some good times. It I
could pe some shilds again 1 kick oop
my heels like a bird and doan’ care
lor nopody. I shall nefer be shmall
again, und wear some knee-breeches
und play horse mit de broom stick’
und when I reflect on dot I feels some
lump in my throat.
Vhen a man comes along und says
he vhas glad he vhasn’ some shildrens
anymore doan’ pelief him. He says
so pecause he doan’ take any comfort
und doan’ want nopody else to. He
vhas lame und cross, und his hones
ache, und his head vhas growing bald,
und he vhas shealous of you und wants
Maype it vhas better for me dot I
vhas a girl, but I doan’ know. It vhas
awtul nice to be a sweet young girl
und to be called angels, und to haf de
poys look at you so shently like a sheep.
If you vhas a girl doan’ you he asham
ed of it. Dot vhas right according to
Hoyle. Maype you can’t climb trees,
run out nights und go swimming in
der mill pond, but if you go py a circus
you vas in de front seals, und some-
pody else puys you a ticket to de
picnick. If I vas a girl I keep my
face so clean as never vhas. I make
shust like music. I walk along nip! a
nip! nip! nip? I keep my hands white
und my hair combed, und vhen somc-
hody meets me und says: “Hello, Susan,
how you vhas?” I answer him: "If you
please sir, my name vhas Birdie, und
I vhas’so weller ash nefer vhas.” If
I could be a lecdle girl, I learn how to
sew, und knit, und make some bread,
und split wood, und bring up coal, und
v/ash dishes, und hoe in de garden, und
den vhas married, my husband would
say: "Ah! noble wommans, you vhas
der capital prize in dcr lottery!”
How bully it vhas to he some hoys.
He doan’ have some taxes to pay—he
doan’ have some barns dat burn down
mit no insurance. Nopody wants to
borrow money of him —no gas bills, to
pay—nopody comes to insure his life.
All he has to do vhas to go py der
school house, play marbles, fly kites
sec'der circus procession,und catswect-
cakes and grow up to he governor.
Dot vhas all, dear shildrens. Doan’
you be troubled. It vhas all right
You vhas getting along petter a<
could be expected by der circumstan
ces, und all you haf ter do vhas to wipe
off your noses and speak nottings to
nopody.—Detroit Free Press.
