"The Nad Old, Glad Old Days."
I am growing old and feebh . ;.ml
my clockwork's badly worn, an. I my
joints are all so rusty that they squeal;
and my teeth are out of kilter so 1
cannot eat my corn, and I have to
feed on bran and oilcake meal: so I'm
sitting around and waiting for the
comingofthehear.se, that will haul
me to the boueyard on the hill: anil
you'll find me grumbling that, tho
world is growing worse, that this
life is but a mighty nasty pill. O the
world was bright and joyous in the
sunny days of yore, when we sm
and wove our garments from the
fleece; when we had no underclothing,
and no carpet on the floor, and we
lit the house with caudles made of
, grease. Then the dandy oiled his
I tresses and the world was all his own
and thegirl with hoops around her was
1 in style; ami we had no fool con trap-
tic)" ll,S4' lw "'" telephone, and a
iciier iooic a mount to go a nine.
Then we cleaned our teeth with pumice
and with tallow blacked our shoes,
and we traded eggs for sugar at the
store, and we took the county paper,
which presented all the news, that
bad happened seven months or so be
fore. Kill it fills me with emotion
when I thinl; of olden days, and 1
have tostop mulshed a pint of tears:
O the dear old bygone people, with
their dear old bygone ways, O the in
cense of the dead and vanished years!
