"Pray, what would you like?" said a Toyman,
Addressing a group of young folks,
"1 have toys in abundance, and very cheap, too,
Though not quite so cheap as my jokes.
The Baldwin Library
' A full set of bricks is enclosed in this box,
(With the mortar we well may dispense,)
But with these you may build a magnificent
Without e'en a farthing's expense.

(" With these you may raise up a Royal Exchange,
In less than five minutes, and then
Knock it down, and build up a new Parliament
In another five minutes,-or ten.
" A doll's pretty kitchen, stands next on the shelf,
With grate, pans, and kettle, and pot;
With dish and tureen, and all crockery-ware,
Knives and forks, and I cannot tell what;

"They would not quite do for a great city- feast,
But I think I may venture to say,
A minnow or tittlebat there might be cooked,
As a rarity on Lord Mayor's day .

" Yet, stranger than that-whatsoever his pace,
Whether canter, or gallop, or trot,
Though moving at ten miles an hour-he ne'er.
Advances one inch from the spot.
Examine this sword, with its handle and sheath,
And its blade made of innocent wood;
"Twere well if all swords were as harmless as this,
And as equally guiltless of blood.
A wonder, you cannot deny;
I really can't say whether it will grind corn,
But it will be easy to try.

SHere's a fine stud of horses, which, strange
though it sounds,
Live neither on corn nor on hay;
A. gentleman's carriage, and tilbury, too,
For which we've no taxes to pay.
A coachman so plump, and a footman so tall,
Who cost not a penny for food;
For to tell you the truth, all their insides are
With a permanent dinner of wood.
" Here's a famous managerie, full of wild beasts;
See I this lion with wide open jaws,
Enough to affright one, and yet I've no doubt,
You might venture to play with his claws.

( Here's a tiger as tame as a lap-dog, you'll find,
And a fox that will not steal the geese:
So here you must own the old adage is proved,
That wonders are never to cease."
"Here's a wagon well laden, and here is a dray,
With horses and harness complete;
You can drive them in parlour and drawing-
As easily as in the street.
"Here's a whole file of soldiers, quite ready for
And each of them armed with a gun;
You may knock them all down with a feather,
You may pocket them-every one.
