FOR THE YOUNG FOLKS. NORTH POLE MAN AND THE SOUTH POLE MAN. Said North Pole man to South Pole man, I "And how is the weather with you?" Said South Pole man to North Pole man, "There is something wrong with the dew. It ought to be wet, but it's frozen yet, And I don't know when it will thaw: My spirits are low, and I'm tired of snow, And the weather is chilly and raw. We both live alone in the Frigidy Zone, And I think it's a horrible plan, So one of these springs let us pack up our things, And visit the Equator man." "0. Equator man," said each Polar man, "We'd like to live alwa.ys in sun." To each Polar man, said the Equator man, "You'd very soon wish to run; You'll burn to the bone in the Torridy Zone, And it's never the place for you, For the sun's as hot as a boiling pot, And will roast you through and through." So North Pole man and South Pole man Both said, "That is good advice." They cling to the Poles, and the earth still rolls With the heat, the snow, and the ice. --(From "The Children's New Encylopsedia.") ACCOUNTING OF STOCK. Come here, little girl, come here, Your daddy has serious fears That no one took care, when combing your hair, To see what became of your car.. Why, bless me! I shouldn't have said There was one on each side of your head! But p' rape it is done that way for the fun Of hearing two secrets as easy as one! Come here, little girl, come here! Your daddy is anxious to see If that nose is in place on the front of your face Just where it's intended to be. Dear, dear, it's too round at the end! But that'll be easy to mnd- A little girl's nose grows jus* where it grows So it'll be easy to pinch, I suppose. Come here, little girl, come here! Your daddy with trouble is tossed. It's ages. since he has counted to see That none of your toes have been lost. Thank goodness There's ten of 'em here- There was no occasion for fear. But every one knows a little girl's toes Should all hurry with her wherever she goes. Come here, little girl, come here! And cure your poor daddy's aJarms. He rea'ly can't 6ay, from so faraway, If you've got the right number of arms. 1 What! No more than two? Is that right? I Let's sr-e if they're fastened in tight. Jiut wo Isr. bacV —and I'm specially glad l-be,y'n so well adjusted for hugging ycur dad! j —Burges Johnson (In Harpit'i Magajagft" f91 Inarch )
