MERRY ALPHABET.

A was an Archer who shot at
a frog
With an Arrow that might have
been shorter;
He shot at a frog, that sat on a log,
And made it jump into the water.
B was a Butcher who had a big dog
Always on hand for a pow-wow;
It would bite, it would bark, from day- ,
light to dark,
O you should have heard it Bow-wow!
was a Captain all
covered with lace,
,. W... \Vith sword and with
trinkets to rattle;
S.He was fond of fine clothes, but you need not suppose
\.That he ever took part in a battle.
D was a Doctor who rode in a gig,
And many good people
attended;
And when they were ill he gave them a pill,
And soon their diseases were mended.

Do many more lady-like things.

T---an Umbrella
U was. borne o'er
the head
Of a dear little Urchin, named Billy,
When a sudden gust came, and oh, what a shame!
'Twas changed to a big water-lily!
V was the Vase, in a mis-
sing valise; .
W the Watchman who
found it;
X was the ten dollar bill he had then,
With two or three extra around it.
Y was a Yacht that bore a blue flag,
And sailed off with speed, so
amazing,
SThat she and her crew received
their just due,
And were worthy the prize and the praising.
7 was a Zany-a silly young .
Li goose,
Who thought it would be very .-
jolly
To stay out of school, and to act
like a fool;
But he lived to repent of his folly.
