opera house to the hotel bus. Curly Andrews was in

a chromo, a " God Bless Our Home" picture, a box of
grease paints, and a 5x10 telescope. The rest of the

A SHY LITTLE MAID.
A love-lorn lad wooed a coy maid onco,
All of a summer's day ho plod,
Oft ho spoko of tho bonrts of lovo tho duncot
And shyly sho shook hor head.
Whon from his heart hope had almost fled,
Ho spoko of bonds ho had in town,
Still, tho silly littlo maiden shook hor head,
But sho shook it up and down.
O lovely Pyrrah, thoro must bo
Somo handsome lad a-courting thee.
With roses ladon from neighboring bowers,
Else whonco this pretty wreath of flowers?
Your swoot simplicity in dross
Hath tangled youth in many a moss.
Tho luckloss boy knows not thy heart,
Thy stillful oyos, thy knowing art;
But happy, hopes thj lovo to hold.
Rash youth! In time ho will grow old,
And, having plunged in seas of lovo,
Swim out, and place his coat above
Tho tomplo door. Brine soaked it hangs
To warn wild youth that "love hath pangs."
