I IIATE A JEOO&. !
I hate a fool like pizen,
Bad-as I hate a thief,
And hate a liar, for they all
Bring other folks to grief;
I hate a noseing gossip,
"Whose nabty prying snout
Pokes inter peoples business,
To ferret bii'thin? out.
I hate their pizen scandal,

I s.lkn-5 hate a, drunkard,
A loafer, and a fop;
And hate a kid-glove dandy,

I hate deceit and fawning, .
And hate like all possessed
A snarling, jawing temper
That gives nobody rest.

conclusion that the domestic cat was
unknown to pre-historic man.
- You ought to let me pass here
free of charge, considering the be
nevolent nature of my profession,"
said a physician to a toll-gate keeper.
" Not so," was the reply, " you send
too many dead-heads through here

argue the point, but paid his toll and
The caution of the New England
er in giving an answer to a direct
question was illustrated the other
day, when a man asked an. Eastern
friend whose family were not noted
for very active habits. " Was not
your father's death very sudden?"
Slowly drawing one hand from his
pocket, and pulling down his beard,
the interrogated cautiously replied,
" Waal, rather sudden, for him."-
An absent-minded smoker nam

thing of importance in the ear of old
