NONSENSE FOR GIRLS.There was a young lady named ETTA, so placid that nothing could fret her;Till a boil on her nose, so disturbed her repose, that her manner was changed for the better.THERE was a young lady named MAUD, who had recently,come from abroad;But her bloom and her curls, which astonished the girls, were both an ingenious fraud.

There was a. young lady named KITTY, who thought she would make herself pretty;So she stuck up her nose, and wore her Ma's clothes, and tried to astonish the city.There was a young lady named ANN, who wanted to live upon bran;When they cried out "What folly!" she pointed to dolly, and answered, "I will if I can."i ;

There was a young lady named LOU, who burst a large hole in her shoe;Then out came her stocking, which really was shocking, but what in the world could she do?There was a young lady named JANE, whose face was distorted with pain;When they said, " You might die !"

There was a young lady named ROSE, who walked on the tips of her toes;When she went to a ball she astonished them all, and frightened away all her beaux.There was a young lady named RUTH, who never could tell you the truth;When they wanted to cure it, she would'nt endure it,-and said it was only her youth.

There was a young person named VIC, who eat till she made herself sick;So they fed her on gruel, which was not very cruel, but not at all tasty or thick.There was a young lady named BESS, who was constantly making a mess;She dirtied her clothes, and blackened her nose, and tore a large hole in her dress.

There was a young person named JULIA, whose tastes were so very peculiar;That she eat little gnats, and made puddings with rats, which did'nt agree with Miss Julia.There was a young lady named GRACE, who actually ran in a race;But she tumbled down flat, and. spoiled her best hat, besides getting scratched in the face.
