The woar soda fountain clerk vuggesteth this that, From pldin old lemon phosphate to a doge of anhfat, And finally the ladies fair with one consent conclude That chocolate and cream shall be their BOda fountain food.

Now, finally th? soda clerk suggcstcth that each maid Shall pay for wbat she drank, and then beghnutli the tirade, For all the ladies vow In wrath--yea, yea, they almost sob- That they will his employer Bee and take from him liia job, And then they take their parasols and sternly away, And not a cent of all that bill do they tain to pay. The gentle soda fountain clerk be falleth In ft And leaneth on the vichy tube, and wicked he eajs. Is this not true, just as we have composed it, with much work? It surely is, and if you doubt go ask the soda clerk. --Baltimore American. j \
