For that demoralixcd, cross-gnu nod K ■“"*<* That stranger dog returned Hill s dug s Insulting stare, in kind, Which tended to still more dirluris Hill's canine's place of mind ; With every bristling hair along H back, he fiercely frowned, And curled his tail until it raised His hind feet from the ground. And thawed his teeth and cocked his ears, And otherwise behaved Impertinently, as dogs do Whose instincts are depraved ; But all hia hostile sign* were met By signs as hostile, quite, And Bui's dog felt himself compelled To slink away, or fight. He flew into that looking-glass With all his might and main— FiUad with chagrin and Broken glass, He oon flew ont again. Rejection showed Bin’s dog that he Had got into a scrimmage, Through indignation at the sight Of his own odious image. The knowledge of his aspect quite Destroyed his self-esteem; For the hideous reality Surpassed his wildest dream. Life lost, at once, ail charm for him. So, mournfully, he steered Into a neighboring sausage-shop. And never re-appeared. like moral of this doggerel Is obvious, 1 trust; (For there is a moral lesson in BUI Baker s dog s disgust;) If some men knew how thev appear To others, they would hide Themselves within a sausage-shop— That is, they'd suicide. iHit and Humor. Obeying the Court Pst Muliooncy having been impaneled in a caac, was, with the rest of the jury, cautioned by the judge as they were about to adjourn for dinner, not to speak to any jiersou nor to allow any person to speak to them concerning the ease in progress. Pat was impressed with this warning. On turning the first corner he encountered Mike U , who wanted to speak to him about digging a well. Pat gave him a wild glance and passed on. Mike followed him, and selling him by the arm, said: “Man alive! what is the matter with you ? Are you craiy ?” Pat freed himself from Mike's vice-like grasp, and planting a terrible blow between Mike's eyes, hurried home to his frugal meal. His troubled look alarmed his wife, ‘■ln the name of all the saints. Patrick, dear, what's the matter with ye?” He made no reply, bnt, shaking bis head. looked more distressed than ever, and commenced eating in a harried and most voracious manner. She ran to a neighbor to have him come and see her husband. As they entered the back door Pat shot nut at the front. The neighbor followed. Pat started on a ran, reached the court-room fonr lengths ahead, and ensconced himself in the jury-box, greatly relieved. A moment after court was re opened in came poor Mike, both peepers closed, accompanied by Constable Hoag land with a writ for Pat. Not daring to serve process there, the officer called the attention of the sheriff to the matter. The sheriff, in tarn, notified the judge. The judge asked Pat to explain. Pat rose with trepidation, and said: •May it plase ycr honor, didn't you tell j os not to spake to any one. nor allow any one to sphake wid ns ? and rare Mike was Issiad to shpake to me. and the only way I could get ont of it was to give him a mild whack between the eyes—for wasnt I hound to obey the court 7” ()f course he was.
