f THE DAY OF SMALL THINGS.
No novels bow, but oviet1e;
Cigars gn place to cigarette.
Titanic, "suna" Ui twinkling "atare."
Pictures to sketches, "jkidih" to "yr,"
Bonnet to things like housemaids' cap.
Baiiguru to tit-bita, booka to scraps.
Aud three-volume novel to "abort ato
nes." Gibbon like length nd epic glories,
Lika mammoth n4 ce bears, are gone.
Earth brings not back the mastodon;
The microbe taken it plane. Tbey kdl us
Not by a giant, but bacillus.
Monster, huge dragon, Laid'y worma,
We fear no 'tia unseen "genoa"
That floor u in our full pride.
We want a "Jack the Germicide,"
And uoi the giant killer now.
Behemoth and the big bowwow
Are gone; for aught not smart and little
We do not care on jot or tittle!
ACROSS THE WAY.
Aero the way my lady dwelia.
Behind ber window ' ahelt'ring Vara,
While jealous curtain hide her eye
A o!ujv cloudlet veil ih stars;
And al! my lonely life doth know
Of baj.pmtoi began the (lay
When brut 1 saw ber tunny far
Arrow, the way.
Across tie way I see her stand
Idly iu ut' jt the passer-by.
t)r alowly gate from eat to weat
With upturned face to wan the ky;
A happy ueiither prophet she
For. be the morning what it may.
My day is fair when she appeara
Acrosa the way.
Across the way I hear iier sing,
Wbeu winter evening longer grow.
Cay ehunlinette and ballad new.
And tender song of yearn ago.
A cold dark room, a window wide.
Are all the price I have to pay,
Wtiilelightaod warmth and peace abound
Arroaa the way.
Across the way in dream I go,
And tell my love and learn my fate
. Sweet ilresma that always gladly end
In libs supreme, in rupture great'.
She smile and lays her band in mine,
Arid then I plead for leave to stay,
Or whisper, "Come, lovecome with me
Across the way."
