The inventor of the Singers' nesiwg-machine made four million pounds. Some people seem to pass all their days in continual expectation of the unexpected. In ancient days, when men and maids Sat in the cosy ingle nooks, They dreamed romantic dreams-or so, At least, we read in story books. Alas the stout old oaken logs, From which the sparks, all cracking, flew, Have given place to gas-jets, snd The old romance is banished, too.
