THE OUTCAST’S WARNING.
BY MARY H. PRICHARD.
Almost within the city*fe sound
A bloated, unknown corpse was found
Beneath an oak tree, on the ground,
One hand outstretched imploringly.
That bony hand so stiff and cold
Still grasped a paper, worn and old.
Which to the world this story told,
Of Strong Drink’s fatal treachery :
Here, underneath this wild wood tree,
My sinful soul from earth must flee,
With none to cheer or comfort me,
Alone in all my misery !
“ If time is spared me, I will write
What brought me down from fortnne's
To this, my present woeful plight,
An outcast dying helplessly.
“ Some tempted souls in time of need
May take a warning when they read,
And check their reckless, downward
.Avert their fearful destiny. _—
“ Once I possessed a home of bliss
.And loving friends, which now I miss ;
I never dreamed to die like this,
Amid wild nature’s scenery.
“ No eye to shed for me a tear I
No heart to hold my memory dear !
No hope my dying honr to cheer,
Or light the dark futurity.
“ Forsaken, friendless, poor and lone,
No place on earth to call my own,
Hope, rest and peaoe forever gone,
Leaving remorseful memory
