BASE BALL GAMES
There will be a game at the btayton |
Ball Park the last three day* of this
week, Thursday Friday and Saturday. ]
And there was a chap among us
By the name of Robert Waite
Kinder cute and tonguey
Guess he was a graduate.
* He could talk on airy subject
From the Bible down to Hoyle,
And his words flowed out so easy
Just as smooth and slick as oil.
He was what they call a skeptic,
And he loved to sit and weave
Hifalutin words together
Telling what he didn’t believe.
One day while we were waiting
For a flood, we sat arouffd
Smoking nigger head tobadko
And a hearing Bob expound.

The Thursday game will be played
witn Lebanon. The Lebanon boy* are
a good bunch and they will arrive in
town something like the illustration be
Hell, h«.- said was all a humbug,
And he showed as clear as day
That the Bible was all fable
And we ’lowed it looked that way.
Miracles he said and sich like
Was too thin for him to stan.
An for him they call the Savior
He was just a common man.
‘‘And altho I haven’t always
Used the Lord exactly white
When I hear a chap abuse him
He must eat his words or fig h t”
Now this Bob he weren’t no coward
And he answered loud and free,
“Stack Your Duds and Cut Your Capers
For there ain’t no flies on me.”
And they fought for forty minutes,
And the lads would whoop and cheer,
When Jack spit up a tooth or two
Or Bobby lost an ear.
Till at last Jack got him under,
And he slugged him once or twice,
And Bob straightway acknowledged
The divinity of Christ.
But Jack kept reasoning with him
Till the poor cus gave a yell,
And allowed he’d been mistaken
In his views consarmn Hell.
