CIRCA 4101:1111VV•
BY JOHN O. ruccmiy.
How I rue the day when I played croquet!
Tbat game with the tape of wire,
With the fancy mauls, and the roiling balls,
Lost me my heart's desire.
I'm beat by a blonde, that festive
Called ,witching Jenny Lake, •
Who wore more striped on ber balmoral
Thai shone on the painted stake.
She played coquet With a winning way,
Thia damsel young and fair; -
With a smile'sd cute, and a high-heeled boot,
'•-• And a rasa in her floating hair;
Such thrills of song, and suds bursts of mirth,
All for my own sweet sake,
Tillought a rainbow touched the earth
e she stood by the painted stake. '
I fell In lova like a turtledove,
And cooed and wooed her well;
But I fell in bate at her croquet mate, . .
And called - him a cheeky swell,
If he had not been, what did ho mean
Such a liberty to take
As to steal a lass, and insult the miss
Till she blushed like the painted slake.
, •
Alt l the game's all, up, - and my bitter cup
Is filled by a llownlng tate; '
For at church to-day, so the papers say,
Li:Lin:um I hate_ -
For that beaming blonde In the balmoral,
For treacherous Jenny Lake,
With a heart of ire In a nairtyr-flre
I burn at the painted stake.

And a weary task enga;
To try and learn, by degrees,

Pleasure Before Duty.

'lf there ever was :a doubtof.Grant's af
fection for his relations—though in .view
, of; the manner in which he has quartered
them upon the country since he became
President there contd hardly be any doubt
abbot it—his recent deelhiation to attend
the ceremony of unveiling 'a statute of
Abraham !Lincoln, at Fairmount Park,
on the 22d inst;,-must:tertainly4 remove
all tincertaintron the subjed. - In shit
big the reasons why- he Cannot be present
1 onEthe occasion, he says, "I am now on
- my way, with my family, to visit 'relations
'and friends among *horn 11 Was raised,
and whoni heft thirty-two years ago, and
Who have been adviso of my coming. I"
d&not see hew I can make a change now."'
Inorder to visit friends whom he- his not
visited for thirty odd years, though he was
"raised" among them, and whom he has
had ample opportunity to visit in all the

We fear that Grant's-patriotism- and , ap
preciation of patriots see no better than
his grammar:, which, wheriever be speaki

"there are no patriots, dead or alive, who
will be remembered snore gratefully / etc.,
uoi• none whom I more honor," etc. He
alio saps he is to-be "debarred the duty of

to excuse his dereliction. And let it not
be forgotten in this connection', that he
has been wasting the last three summers
in running around the cattle shows and

rich man's home in Pennsylvania, while
all public and otherwise 'wholly , unselfish
claims upon his time' have been.' utterly
