Let us tako an example or two:
"A cloud passed over the sun!
The wind blew west and the skies wore clear,
The dear, fond faces wore still as dear,
Joy grew mighty, and pain was done
But u cloud passed over the sun!
A cloud passed off from the sun!
The wind blew east and it prosagod rain,
There was no light in the heart for pain,
And joy was dead and hope was Bpun
But a cloud passed off from the su'n."
Wo have offered a reward of $50 to the ono who will cap
ture the meaning of the above and bring it to us dead or alive
It will not do, however, to say that it simply means that the
writer had an attack of the dyorafumlajigs.
Compare, if you please, with this piece of unintelligibility
the following transparent gem from our own pen:
"A thousand clouds may hide the sun,
The wind blow west or south ;
Thero'3 brightness still for every one,
Perpetual as the smiles that run
'Round Robert's ruddy mouth.
The sun without a cloud may shine,
Winds drift from tropic isles;
They can not touch this heart of mine
And holp mo every care resign t
Like one of Robert's smiles."
Is there any ambignity to this? Need anyone rack his brain
to discover what is meant? Methinks nit.
Wo have the Up-to-date
in the best
$3.00 & $3.50
in the world.
