[Willi apologies to the uicmorv of the late Mr
t'oo, the editor imitates his most favorite poem
prompted by his failure in carrying out his specu
lative plans which were,entere<l into with the ex
liectatioti of his delinquents coming to his rescue.]
j Once upon a midnight dreary, while 1 pondered
weak mid weary
o'er many a pastdue bill tlmt lav before.
While 1 sat there nearly sleeping, presently there
came a creeping,
As of something slyly keeping steallhv tread out
side the sanctum door,
! And I thought of ghostly lore.
1 Long 1 >at there listening, fearing, cverv .ten i
| distinctly hearing
As the sentinel walked to ami fro:
I no sound at all was making, but niy verv kuecs '
were shaking
With the prespiration breaking out in head, from
! every lore
! Fell "kerplunk" u|«.ntlie sanctum floor.
I Still my heart kept rapid tieating till 1 thought
I me of retreating
j And into the back room iiuicklv tore.
, Now in this same room quite handy, there the
devil had stored some dandv brandy
, Ami I thought "I will not bandy 'words with con
science o'er
i A little lip, for building plans do press me sore."
' Soon my spirits gan uprising with alacrity «ur
! prising,
So 1 took a little more—just a lingure more:
j "Now." said I, "this skulking evil—he it saint or
| lie it devil—
| Shall, tome, at least lie civil," and I fear I some
what swore,
| litu of that 1 11 not be sure.
. Now it seems he heard the fleeing when I sought '
to hide my being
j In the little backroom store,
! So no further moments loosing, nor no smiling ,
welcome choosing
j In he came and sat perusing, maiiv a small uti- !
I settled score
| That were sent iu from the days of yore.
There he sat as well contented as if he the olllcp i
' had rented
And would hold it evermore:
; "This is bad" 1 heard him mutter, very bad but
let her liuttcr.
\ I must have my bread and butter even if I ain I
a liorc.'.
This he said, then nothing more.
••11a!" said I."he thinks 1 fear him. I.iule does i
he know that near him
1 Stands a demon that will make him roar
I Fierce 1 grew as valiant lleetor 'twas rierhaiis
the pleasant nectar) i
When I saw my creditor scanning all mv uniuiiil :
i billets o'er,
j Fierce 1 burned unto the very core.
| Out 1 came, lie rose to meet me. and held out !
I his hand to greet
But his face a sudden pallor bore,
! For my soul was hotly burning, and my glance
upon him turning
I could see a sudden yearning to escape beneath I
the tioor—
But staving, only saying. "I've dug a well for!
which you're owing,
■ This I want and nothing more."
••lie this kick our sign of parting, liend!" I cried
toward him starting.
But he saved himself by darting out the sanctum
U ft his hat and uii|>ai<l bill, nothing more.
And that building 1 was planning, still keeiis me !
hoping, yet quite hopeless.
: Hunting up some new. strange creditor never ;
seen before,
But that hat and bill one gave me on the night
he tried to brave mc-
And the brandy punch that saved me while 1
think 1 swore-
Will lie the editor's cause for dwelling building,
never, never more.
