· HE HEATHEN CiKAVE KOItBEK. UY AH EX-JIED1C. {Dedicated to the class of 'U anil '75, Medical J)c- partnuMt University of Michigan.] Which I wish to remark, And am free to maintain, That for ways that are dark And tricks quite profane, Thesuatchcr ot stiffs is peculiar. Which the same I arise to explain. O Niulie the name-Which! name-Which! shall not deny, In regard to the saui ·, Thai it doii't signify,-Yet signify,-Yet his smile was pensive and grave-like, Thff'I frequent remarked, "All my eye." On those riighti preferred, Wheu quite dark wero the skies. Which it might bo inferred Of 0 Niglie likewise; For he played it these times upon Gabriel In a way every one must despise. 'Tis the angels' email Katr.e, In this broad Christian land Of infidel fame, With nourish quite grand To blow up his dead ones to judgment. Or the ease we do not understand, The angel was shocked, In 11 way that I grieve, And Nif* ought to bo knocked; Yet. I laugh in ipy sleeve, To think how that nc^then grave robber Did sell him, did sell and deceive. For the trick that was played By 0 Niglio on he And the point that was made Were quite frightful to see; And the angel,alas, Christiau brethren, Barked bliudedly up the wrong tree, Hfl flew low, cocked his eye, On a church-yard gazed he With a sigh, And said, "Can this he? So these are all dead Michigandera!" And he sounded a loud chivturee. X In the scene which ensued 7 Ho threw up his hand, And hi? language was rude : And hia smile wasn't bland; For he found not ti corpus responded, Which the same he could not understand. Kig pliiyed his trump-card, Which the same was a spade, . And he scooped that grave-yard Of its fixtures, and made It as empty's the hear! of a medic After hearing his first courts of lectures, Which is why I remarked,. And have tried to explain, That for waj s that are dark And tricks quite profane, The "snatcher of stiffs" is peculiar, Which the sums I am free to maintain. JUtuitertom, Jan. 3S, 1S75. W. JR.
