DASH'S HOLIDAY.SAID Dash, a young and handsome dog,"While mistress is away,I '11 run out to the fresh green fields,And take a holiday." My cousin keeps a farmer's flocks,And pleased I 'm sure he'll beA grand relation like myselfAt his poor house to see."So Dash drew on his Sunday coatOf velvet, soft and red;And a fine hat, with snow-white plume,He put upon his head.^ ----------------------------F-iThe Baldwin LibraryUniversitSFl. yda

I'm Dash-in town well known;A most distinguished lady's pet-I scorn a vulgar bone."Then I 'm afraid, good cousin Dash,"The white dog, laughing, said,"That in our rural home you'll findYourself but poorly fed."They walked together to the farm,Blanche full of harmless glee;And just outside the woodbine porchThey good old Keeper see.Says Blanche, " This is our cousin Dash.""He's welcome," Keeper said;And into his snug dwelling-placeThe London dandy led;3^d ----- ------ -------------------i

You're come just in the nick o' time,"The homely sheep dog cries;While with fat bacon and good bonesHe Dash's plate supplies."To-morrow's the Hunt dinner, lad,And they'll be glad to seeA friend of mine-a cousin too-Rare fun it's sure to be."You hunt, no doubt?" "Sometimes," said Dash,"A rat yields me some sport;But hunting's out of fashion quiteIn Queen Victoria's Court:S4

K^ -----------------------gDASH'S HOLIDA Y.He sniffed the soup-turned up his nose-Asked every dish's name;And, sighing, said, "He hoped to makeHis dinner upon game!"Declared he only claret drank,While all good home-brewed quaffed;Till at his airs and graces allThe honest foxhounds laughed.They offered him a mount next day;And such was Dash's pride,That he accepted it; althoughHe knew he couldn't ride.So next day, on a fine grey steed,He joined the merry Meet,In top boots, spurs, and jacket "pink"-A huntsman's garb complete.~ui,

By petting he's been spoiled outright:He's only fit to stayWith some fine lady in her roomTo jump about and play.^ _____________- -- -___________---------

j^ ~ --------------------DASH'S HOLIDA Y." That's true," said Blanche; "yet this I knowOf my poor London friend,-With his own feeble life Dash wouldHis mistress kind defend." He's a good house dog-vain, I grant,As puppies still will be;This ducking will have done him good,As by-and-bye you'll see." I dare say, if we went to town,We might as awkward seem,And find the streets as hard to crossAs Dash did our small stream."
