| EXTRACTS FROM "PUNCH" & "FUN." A Desert Island. My father and mother consulted each other, As soon as they taught me to toddle, And sent me to school where I grew up a fool, With a quite inacce-sibte nodd'e. I confess—and I wish I could do so As nicely as John Jacky Rousseau— That my fine head of hair was eatrpty and bare As the island of Robiuson Crusoe. Though I studied the pages of several sages They never improved me one tittle; Till a notion, one day, to my brain found its way And astonished my brain not a little. But fanoy-and probahly whoso Perukes this ballad will do so— How the thought mast have trembled to find it e- sembltd That anchodte, Robinson Crusoe. A Conundrum. My first is a Company, p'r'aps a bubble. My second's no one, so that's no trouble. My second is also a la,dy, yet you My second know well as the Pa. of a Jew, A great light of Israel, who might Indeed be called an Israel-light. My third you may hear on your road to Eton, Still going on though thoroughly beaten; My third you may meet at your grocer's shop, Like a boy with a plaything my third has a top. To complete my whole one line I need. Well, my whole is a pnzzle to all who read. The importance of finding me out isn't vital, But you'll see what I am up above. I'm the title.
