Only a buttle for glory
Incited by clannish pride;
Only a campus all gory,
Furrowed aud torn, far aud wide.
Only a fow broken noses,
Sprained ankles, black oyes aud sort head-,
Only a Hold strewn with clothing,
And shirts, begrimed aud in shreds.
Only somo heathonish yelling,
Aud groans, as they stand or fall;
Oh, no, it's not strikers rebelling
Simply a cano-rush that's all.

Lays away his sleek, silk hat
No longer wears his broadcloth suit,
CuiTs, collar, or cravat.
He now puts on old overalls,
Stiff boots, aud dirty coat,
And walks to rural settlements
To work tho farmer vote.

And in his calling let him nothing call
But coach ! coaoh ! coach ! oh, for a coach, yo gods !

When Whittler.sweet singer, died a few weeks ago
And his s.iul to heaven was hurled,
Each frloud that passed by, said to us with a sigh,
He died poor in the goods of this world.
When Sullivan and Corbet t fought a fow weeks ago
Three nations praised tho lighters so bold.
And the papers still ling with "Corbott tho King,"
Who received llfty thousand In gold.
