6 ray, what would you like?" said a Toyman,
Addressing a group of young folks;
"I have toys in abundance, and very cheap, too,
Though not quite so cheap as my jokes.
Ihk ...^ '
"That iron-grey rocking-horse, just at your side,
With saddle and bridle complete,
Will go without whipping, and, equally strange,
Without making use of his feet.
"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.
"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 through the street.
FROM DEAN & SON'S,

" 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.
"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.
"Here'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 there's no duty 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.
"Examine this sword, with its handle and sheath
And its blade made of innocent wood;
'Twere well if all swords were as harmless at this,
And equally guiltless of blood.
"Here's a mill that will go without water or wind,
A wonder you cannot deny;
I really can't say whether it will grind corn,
But it will be quite easy to try.
The Baldwin Library 6

"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 expense.
Knock it down, and build up a new Parliament
In another five minutes,-or ten.
"Here's a famous menagerie, full of wild beasts,
See! the lion with wide open jaws,
Enough to affright one, and yet, I've no doubt,
You might venture to play with its claws.
" And 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."
