Ontslde of a dnsty tenement, 

With every flat to let. 
In one there lives nn Irish girl 

Wlio can't speak German yet; 
She blows up tires for bicycles, •' 

And she's all right on Mie blow, 
With a wheel in tier head, and of ton it's eaid. 

She's a good thing in Poverty Row. 


Down in Poverty Row, don't ask mo where. 
Yon can live without a cent if you only breathe the air; 
Each girl has her boy, and so so, don't you know; 
There's none of them right, you cnu tnke what you like, 
Down In Poverty Row. 

In winter time the snow will fall 

At night us well as day. 
And tiien they all eat enow-balls. 

It's cheaper than eating hay; 
They nil dance 'round upon the ice. 

And any old thing will go. 
Then they sing far and near, 'My Dad'B the Engloeer,* 

All 'roaiid in Poverty Row. 


Down in Poverty Row, don't ask me where. 
You can live without a cent if yon only breathe the air; 
Eiicb girl has her hoy, and so so, don't you know; 
There's none of them right, you can take what you like, 
Down in Poverty Row. 

Just Tell Them that You Saw Me 

Parody— Written by Franic J. Hurray. 

While standing on my feet one night, a cliangc from on my head- 

'Twas after I bad chewed a chicken pie— 
I saw a cop wlio saw me, he was looking hungry, too. 

And wished that he was half as full as I. 
"Is that you, Patf" said I to him; says he, "Begob, it Is; 

I've got to pull some one or lose me job; 
I guess I'll run you in, me boy, before I will forget." 

Says I, "All right, but when you see the mob— 


"Jnst say that I was with yon, or that I saw you last; 

Jnst telephone I'm working, 'nit,' you know; 
Jnst spring it, I've been hypnotized and got it iu the hip, 

Just tell them any old thing, it will go." 

While riding down the bay one night within a cable car, 

After the conductor pinched my fare, 
I saw a girl who worked for me when I ran a "Cliing' laundry. 

And writing checks in Chinee language there. 
" I'm glad to see you. Jack, again," that's what she said to me; 

I said, " I'm sorry that we met at all: 
I owe your mother twenty, Kate, and sister 't>oat the eame. 

Bat I'll be 'round to see them when I call. 


" So tell them that yon saw me and I waB fast asleep. 

Just tell them I was trying to touch yon; 
Then whisper to your sister if she'd let me have a ten, 

I could love her t>etter than I used to do." "

On a night that was bitter cold, 
I noticed a crowd, wlio were laughing aloud 

At something they chanced to Iteiiold; 
I stopped for to see what the object could be, 

And there, on a doorstep, lay 
A woman in tears, from the crowd's angry jeers,

Though by the wayside she fell. 

She may yet mend iier ways; 
Some poor, old mother is wailing for b&e, : 
Who ba« Been better dayt. 

" If we could but tell why the poor creatnre fell. 
Perhaps we'd not be so severe; 

If the truth were but known of this onlcast alone. 
Mayhap we would all shed a tear. 

She was once some one's joy. cast aside like a toy- 
Abandoned, forsaken, unknown." 

Every man stunding by bad a tear in bis eye. 
For some had a daughter at home.— C^A^'u*. 

The crowd went away, bnt I longer did stay. 

For from her I was loath to depart; 
I knew by her moan, as she sat there alone. 

That something was breal<ing her lienrt.

1 * > » I 

One nicrht as T sat by my flrepide, so weary, 

And dreaming of friemls vvlio were far, far away; 
TIioiikIi int- mory br<)iii;lit me oome tiiouglita iad and dreary. 

Yet others came. too. that were cheerful aud K&y, 
When, all i>f a sudileii, I found my eye rt-etin); 

On sometliiiie that broiiKlit many scenes to my mind— 
'Twae an old pncit of cards, and some tales interesting 

I tlioMKlit that 1 might in tlieir history find. 
The first scene that I saw tliat niifht I ttioiiglit was quite a pleasant sight, 

A grand old room ablaze with light— I whispered, "Kind regards," 
Whilst 'round ilie board sat yonngandold, they played for love aud not for gold. 

Whilst joy and sorrow all untold was iu that pacli of cards. 

Tlie next scene I saw filled my heart with great pity- 
It was a young man, and his parents 1 knew; 

'Twas tlieir only son, whom ttiey'd sent to the city 
To study and utow up a gentleman true. 

His weekly allowance they thought would suffice him 
To live on the l>e»t and for study to pay; *^ 

Tliey knew not lh>>''-"ii Contpunlons enticed blm 
Away from hTs studies at poker to play. 

I saw iiiiii ns lie left his seat, he never tiiought his pals would cheat; 
Each time he piayi-d he met defeat, and still he calle<l them pards; 

Bat there will come a reckoning day, aiid he will throiii;)) tins foolish play 
Bring sorrow iu the old folks' way, all througli that pack of cards. 

The last scene of all I beheld with much sorrow. 

For there WHS the scene of the gambler's black fate; 
No tiiought had they got of the waking to-morrow, 

Tlioiigh then they'd repent but to flnil it too late. 
The hrlL'ht gold was stacked by tlie side of eacli player, 

The miser's l>lack creed was in every man's heart. 
As quickly the bets pnesed twizt backer and layer, 

And ruin was king lu the devil's slave mart.

■ Words by Harry C. Clyde. Melody by Joa. J. Sweeney. 

~ Times were hard in Irish town, ev'rything was going down, 

Aud Pat Maloiie was pushed for ready cash; 
Be for life insurance spent all his money to a cent. 

So all i>r his affairs had gone to smash. 
But his wife spoke up and said: "Now, dear Pat, if yon were dead, 

That twenty tlioiisand dollars we cmild take." 
And so Pat lay down and (ried to make out that be had died, 

Until he smelt the whi'skey at the wake; 
Then Pat Malone foruot lliat he was dead. 

He raised himself and siionted from the bed: 
"If this wake goes on a minute, the corpse he must be in it; 

You'll have to get nie driiuk to keep me dead." 
Then Pat Malone forgot that he was dead; 

He rained himself and shouted from the bed: 
" It th 8 wake goes on a minute, the cor|i8e he must be in it; 

You'll have to get me drunk to keep me dead." 

Then they gave the corpse a sup, afterwards they filled him up, 

And laid him out again n^Hin tne hed: 
Then l>erore the mornlug gray ev'ryl)ody felt so gay. 

They all forgot he only played off dead. 
'So they took him from the bunk, still alive, but awful drunk, 

And put him in the coffln, with a pray'r; 
' But the driver of the cart said: " Bedad, I'll never Start 

Until I see that some one pays the fare." 
Then Pal Mahme forcot that he was dead; ' . 

He sat lip In the cofUn. while he said: 
"If you dare to douht my credit, you'll be sorry that you said it; 

Drive on, or else the corpse will break your bead." 
Then Pat Maione foroot that he was dead; 

He sat up lu the coffin, while he said: 
"If you dare to douht my credit, you'll be sorry that yon said it; 

Drive on, or else the corpse will break your head." 

So the fiin'ral started out on the cemetery route, 
Anil the neiiihbors tried the widow to console. 
Till they stopped l>eside the liase of Maloiie's last resting place, 
And genlly lowered Patrick ill the hole. 
... Then Malone beL-au to see, just as plain as one, two, three, 
That he'd furgot to reckon ou the end; 
'■'... So, as clods l)«i:aii to drop, he liroke off the coffln top. 

And to the earth he quickly did ascend. 
- . ' Then Pat Malone forgot tliat he wax dead, 
••; • And from the cemetery quickly fled; 

•; Be came nearly going under; it's a lucky thing, by thunder. 
That Pat Malone forgot that he was dead. 
Then Pat Malone forgot that he was dead, ■•'.■•' ■■ ' 

And from the cemetery quickly fled: 
Be came nearly going under; it's a lucky thing, by ttliinder, ' 
Thai Fat Malone forgot that be waa dead. - ' '

While standing on my feet one night, a change from on my head— 

'Twas after I had chewed a chicken pie— 
I saw a cop who saw me, he was looking hangry, too. 

And wished that he was half as full as I. 
"Is that you. Pal?" said I to him; says he, "Begob, it le; 

I've got to pull some one or lose me job; 
I guess I'll run you in, me boy, before I will forget." 

Saye I, "All right, but when you see the mot>-— 

"Just say that I was with yon, or that I saw you laat; 

Just telephone I'm working, 'nit,' you know; 
Just spring it, I've heen hypnotized and got it in the hip, ,. 

Just tell them any old thing, it will go." 

While riding down the bay one night within a cable car. 

After the conductor pinched my fare, 
I saw a girl wiio worked for me when I ran a "Chlik > " laundry. 

And writing checks in Chinee language there. 
"I'm glad to tiee you. Jack, again," that's what she Bald to me; 

I said, " I'm sorry that we met at all, 
I owe your mother twenty, Kate, and sister 'bout the same, 

But I'll be 'round to see them when I call. 

"So tell them that yon saw me and I was fast asleep. 

Just tell them I wax trying to touch you; 
Then whisper to your sister if she'd let me have a ten, 

I could love her better than I used to do." 

I Lo ve You Yet

You said you loved me better than I knew. 

But ahl you know you spoke untrue; 
Yonr heart whs faitiiless and your love was false. 

And yet I loved, I loved but yon. 
You claimed me as your happy bride. 
You pressed mc to your loving side; 
You took my hand within your own. 
And vowed you loved Imt me alone. *' 
But ah! you little dream'd I knew 
That you were faithless and untrue. 

And now I wander sad and lone, the past a drear and vain regret, 
Aud tho' your many vows were broken, 1 cannot help, I love you yet. 

"I loyed you better than yon knew, machree" — 
Those were the words you spoke to me, 

And tho' I thought you loveil me as you said, 
I knew that this could never be. 

For woman's heart is not a toy. 

One deed her love will oft destroy; 

I saw you kiss another's lips. 

Like bee, whicli stolen honey sipa. 

Ami ah! you lilile dream'd I knew 

That you «ere faiIlileH« and untrue. — Chonit.

I'm a celebrated workingnmn, me duty I never shirk; 

I can do more work than iiny imin from Pittsburgh to New York; 

It's a j)erfect holy terror, boys, how I'll get through me work, 

Providing I can do it in a barroom. 
I'll hoist derricks with me sliouliler, push freight cars with me breath. 
That will make the boss feel tickled, till he's on the edge of death, 
But, between us all, now whi8|>er that I only have to sweat. 

When I'm doing manual labor iu the barroom. 

There are coppers withont nnmhers, with their well-developed ehesta, ' 

Who make.the most agtoiitiding of the whole police arrests; 

They'll pound the air with veiiueunce, then dilute their manly chests; 

If you'll only chase the liquor in a bammm. 
They will catch thieves without iMiinl»ers, they'll be np to snuff, you see; • 
They've cnucht a hundred murderers, including yon and me. 
But you'll find out when you know them that they must have twenty-three 

Of the very largest schooners in the barroom. 

There are actors who have acted in a linndred different roles. 
And some whose fame extend l>eyond those two confounded poiea. 
But you'll find their acting qiialiites lies deep within their souls. 

And they draw their inspirations from a barroom. 
Their poses are heroic, and tlieir methods are sublime; 

They give old Garrick cards and spades, their soul is full of rhyme^ ' ; "' 
But w hen you come to solve tiiem you will find that at the time 

They ouiy do their Johu McCuilough's in a barroom. 

There's the politician robust, with his pre-election ways. 

Who works his fine influence on the l>lo<miing Fourth Ward Jaya^ 

And for fourteen iiegs of lager tlien hie nobs he buidly pays. 

And he operates liis canvass in the barrooin; 
But when the electioii'e o'er and the free beer is all gone. 
He'll wonder how the deuce it was that his opponeut won; ' ■ 

He'll find out that I voted for the other son of a gun,

In a cozy little cottage sat a couple old and gray, 

A fire in the hearth was burning bright. 
There a letter they were rending from their son who went astray; 

He left them on one cold and wint'ry night; 
Bis companions, whom were evil, had him forge bis father's name; 

The parent, in his anger, wished him dead; 
But the son had since rc|H-nted, and this letter home bad come, 

And to his wife these words the old muu read : 


Let me take my place at honie again. 

Back among the dearest friends of all. 

Back to mother's dear caress, and yonr old age I will bless. 

Then let me take my place at home aguiu. 

Now the old man would not listen to the pleadings of his boy. 

The dear old mother's health soon gave away. 
For her heart was sadly pining for her eon, her only joy. 

Who left them in both sorrow and dinmay: 
One night as they were sitting by their cozy firef>idc, 

The son was brouuht in pale and ill from need. 
Then the father he forgave him, and with joy the mother cried. 

And now my lad no longer taas to plead:— Chorut.

In a Pnllman palace smoker sat a number of bright men. 

You could tell that they were drummers, nothing seemed to trouble them. 

When up spoke a handsome follow, " Con>e. let's have a story, boys. 

Something that will help lo pass the time away." 

" I will tell you how we'll manage," said a bright knight of the grip, 

" Let us have three wishes, something good and true; 
We will give friend Bob the first chance, he's the oldest gathered hens "— 

Then they listened to a wish that's always new: 

*' Just to be a child agiiin at mother's knee, 
Just to hear her sing the same old melody. 
Just to hear her sjieak iu loving sympathy, 
' ~ Just to kiss her lips acain. 

Just to have her fondle me with tender care. 
Just to feel her dear, soft fingers through my hair. 
There is no wish in this world that can compare. 
Just to be a child at mother's knee." 

There they sat, those jolly drummers, not a sound that moment heard. 
While their tears were slowly falling, there was no man epoke a woni, 
: For the memories of their childhood days had louched their dear kind hearts, 
. When, as children, they had played at mother's knee. 
Then at last the spell was broken by another traveling man, 

"Your attention for a moment I do crave; 
I will tell yon of one precious thing, so dear to one and all, 
'TIb a wieh we long for to the very grave: 

Just enough of gold to keep me all my days. 
■ ' Just enough with which some starving soul to save. 

Just enough I wish to help me on my way. 
Just enough to happy be. 
Just enough to know I'll ne'er be poor again. 
Just enough to drive away all sorrow's pain. 
You may wish for many things, but all in vain. 
Give to me what precious gold can buy." 

The conductor, passing through the train, stopped in the smoking^ar; 
Be had grown quite iiiteregied in the stories told so far— 
■ " Please excuse my interruption, but I listened with delight " > 

To your wishes, both of them so good and tnie; 

Yet there is a wish that's dearer, better far than glittering gold, ^ 

Though a simple one perhaps you all will say, ■ '"' 

Tis a longing that is In my heart each moment of my life, 
Tis a gleam of euusbiue strewn across my way: .; , .. 

Jnst to open wide my little cottage door, 
; Just to see my baby rolling on the floor, 

Jnst to feel that I have something to adore. 

Just to be at home again, 

Jnst to hear a sweet voice calling papa dear, - 

Just to know my darling wife is standing near; ^ - 

You may have your gold your lonely heart to cheer, 

But I'll take my baby, wife and home."

T will staff yon a eong, anil it won't be very long, 
'Bout a maiden sweet, and she never would do wrong; 
Ev'ry one said site was preiiy, slie was not long in the city. 
All alone, oh, what a pity— poor little maid. 

She never saw the stieets of Cairo, on the Midway she had never strayed. 
She never saw the kutchy, kutchy— poor little country maid. 

She went out one night, did this Innocent divine. 

With a nice young man, who invited her to dine. 

Now he's sorry that he met her, and he never will forget ner; 

In the future he'll know better— poor little maid. 

Chorus. ■ ^ 

She never saw the streets of Cairo, on the Midway she had never strayed. 
She never saw the kutcliy, kutcliy— poor little country maid. 

She was engaged as a picture for to pose, . . 

To appear each ni^ht in abbreviated clothes. 

All the dudes were in a flurry, for to catch her they did hnrry; 

One who Caught htr now is sorry-poor little maid. 
She was much fairer far than Trilby— lots of more men sorry will be 
If they don't try to keep away from this poor little country maid.

I'm In love with a charming young lady, 

JtiHt the finest yount; lady ou earth; 
A gem of the very first water. 

And I'm proud that she's Irish by birth; 
I met her i)eneath the green bower; 

1 kissed her and liked it bo well; 
She blushed like the fairest of flowert ' 

That grow in a mossy green deli. 

Kathleen, so fair and bright: star of eve and darkest night; 
'Mid shady laue and meadow green, I long to roam with aweet E^athleen. 

Her parents they boast not of riches; 

Tiiey've a neat little farm of iheir 0wn| 
Her father he digs hie own praties, 
- And they live in the County Tyrone; 

For miles 'round our Kathleen is famous— ' 

G<)0<1 looks anil good nature serene; 
. . Tis there she is alway* acknowledged 

As the fairest young colleeu e'er seen.— CAortM. 

We are going to get married next Sunday, 

And the iild folks will give us away; 
The belle in tlie church will l)e ringing. 

And the boys and the eirls will l)e gay; 
As sure at) the stare are above us. 

My Kiitlileen will ever be true; 
And as from the church we are coraine. 

All the boys and the girls shout burroo. — Ctiorut.

I am In love with a nice little girl, she's only sweet sixteen; 

She works down town, just near Park Row and Pearl, she's my queen; 

She has a bicycle, I've got one, too; oh, bow delightful it feels; 

On Sunday morning, as daylight is dawning, taking a spin on car wheels. 


My Coney Island girl, she's just the sort that you'd like: 

She's Rof no medals, hut oh, don't she look nice on a *' bike"; 

She dresses dainty and neat, on her forehead a Marguerite curl; 

I take a trip Sunday, and sometimes on Monday, with my Coney Island girl. 

When we reach Coney the pleasure be^ns, meeting the girls and boys; 
Then take a ride on the bi^ carousal, oh, what joys; 

If we don't want to ride home on a " hike," sometimes we take the last train; 
We sing every ditty that's sung In the city, but always end with this refrain :

Matt Casey formed a social club that beat the world for style. 

And hired for a meeting place a hall; 
When pay-day came around each week, they'd greased the floor with WU| 

And dauced with noise and vigor at the ball: 
Bacli Saturday you'd see tht-m dreeeed up in Sunday clothes. 

Each lad would have his sweetheart by his side: 
When Casey led the first graud march the rest would fall in Um] 

Behind the man who was their joy and pride— for , . ^ 

Casey would waltz with a strawberry blonde, 
' And the band played ou; 

/ He'd glide 'cross the fioor with the girl he adored. 

And the band played on: 
But his brain was so loaded it nearly exploded, 
.• The poor girl would shake with alarm; 

He'd ne'er leave the girl with the suawberry curls. 
And the baud played on. 

Such kissing in the comer and such whisp'riog in the hall. 

And telling tales of love behind the stairs: 
As Casey was the favorite and hi- that ran ilie ball. 

Of kisxiug and luve-mukiim did his share; 
At twelve o'clock exactly they all would fall in line, 'v. 

Then march down to the dining hall and eat; . 

But Casey would not join them, although every thing was fine. 

But he'd stayed up-siairs and exercise his feet— for— C'Aorj<*. 

Now when the dance was over and the band played "Home, sweet hoaM,** 

They played a tune at Casey's own request; 
He'd thank them very kindly for the favors they had shown; 

Then he'd waltz once with the girl that he loved best: 
'Most all the friends are married that Casey used to know, ■.':.'■ 

And Casey, too, has taken him a wife; '-' 

The blonde he used to waltz and glide with on the ball-room floor, 

iB happy Missis Casey now for life— for- CAoru*.

A passing policeman found a little child; 
She walked beside him, dried her tears and smiled. 
Said he to her kindly, " Now you must not cry, 
I will find your mamma for you bye and bye." 
At the station when he asked her for her name. 
And she answered Jennie, it made him exclaim: 
"At last of your mother I have now a trace — 
Your little features bring back her sweet face.** 

"Do not fear, my little darline, and i will take yon right home. 

Come and sit down close beside me; no more from me you shall 

For you were a babe in arms when your niotlier left me one day; 

Left me at home, deserted, alone, and took you, my child, away." 

"Twas all through a quarrel, madly jealous she. 
Vowed then to leave me, womanlike, you see. 
Oh, how I loved her, crief near drove me wild." 
"Papa, yon are crying," lispe*! the little child. 
Suddenly the door of the station opened wide: 
" Have you seen, my darlint;? " an anxious mother cried. 
Husband and wife then mcetine, face to face. 
All is soon forgiven, in one fond embrace. 

**Do not fear, my little darling, and we will take yen right home. 
Come and sit down close beside me: no more from os you shall i 
For yon were a babe in arms when your motlier left me one day; 
Left me at home, deserted, alone, and took you, my child, away.

They were happy as lovers conUi be, 
Engaged to be married, the time was qnite near, ' ,.•' 

Theii young hearts were beating with glee, 
Bnt oft, between kisses, d<ar Katie would say: 
" We mui't look forward to our wedding day: 
This world is made up of eiinsliine and rain; " 
And when John would langh, she would sing this refrain: 

"Dimes and nicltels, nicl^els and dimes: 
If we thought more of them, we'd hear of less crimes; 
Now, John, when we're married, in case of bard timea* 
You save the nickels and I'll save the dimes." . 

At last they were married and settled, 

In a nice little place of their own, 
And a baby wonlU call out for P)ipa, so sweet. 

In the evening when John would come home. 
When the Union declared the hig strike at the mill, 
John went out, with his dear Katie's will — 
She says: " Do not fret: we laugh at hard times. 
For you've saved the nickels and I've saved the ilmcB."— Chorus.

. While strolling along with the city's vast throng, 
On a night that was bitter cold, 
I noticed a crowd, who were laughing aloud 
At something they chanced to behold: 
; ■.■ ' I stopped for to see what the object could be, '' 

And there, on a doorstep, lay 
A woman in tears, from the crowd's angry jeers. 
And then I beard somebody say: 

She may have seen better days, when she was in her prime; 
She may have seen better days once npon a time: 
Though by the wayside she fell, she may yet mend her ways; 
Some poor, old mother Is waiting for her, who has seen better days. 

If we could bnt tell why tlie poor creature fell, 
Perhaps we'd not be eo severe: 
!■' If the truth were bnt known of this outcast alone, 

.'■'...:.! \': Mayhap we would all shed a tear. 
■..' ■ :;■' She was once some one's jov, cast aside like a toy— 
^' ■ .' ■"■ Abandoned, forsaken, nnxnown. 
•■ ■', ' Bvery man standinu by had a tear in liis eye, - • . 

.:..-■. For some had a daughter at home.— CA©rw». ; - 

■;^ The crowd went away, but I longer did stay; 

For from her I was loath to depart; 
I knew by her moan, as she sat tnere alone. 

That something was breaking heart; ' - r^ ; . 

She told me her life, shs was once a good wife, :'.' ;. 

Beapected and honored by all: ,.'"'.' 

Ber hnsbaitd had fled ere they were long wed, 

AaA tMUi dowB her cbeeka sadly fall.— CAtfriM. 

Mhldon Rnfh one day came into town, just to see her uncle dear; 
Maiden Ruth had on a girlish gown, and it made her look so queer; 
Maiden Ruth bad never seen New York, not until that day, poor thing. 
As her uncle took her all around, she began to sing: 

Oh! Uncle John, isn't It nice on Broadway; 

Ohl Uncle John, here I will remain; 
Oh I Uncle Jolin, now that I've seen the Bowery, 

Life in the country's awful slow, and I'll never go back again. 

Uncle John escorted maiden Ruth all around the town, with care- 
First he took her iin to Central Park, then they went to Cliatham Square: 
Strange sights maiden Riilh had witnessed from Harlem down to New York bay; 
Every one could tell what pleased her most by the way she'd say: — Charua. 

Uncle somehow lost her In the crowd, up and dowm the street he ran. 
Soon he found her happy as could l>e, chatting with a policeman: 
Uncle John then said to maiden Ruth, "Come along," but Riiih replied, 
'* I must kiss that handsome man in blue," so she did and cried:— CAorus.

Not half enoueh in manners staid; •^^i'>' 
I really try to be discreet; '^ "^ \- 

I've jDBt come hack from school in France, 
The matron led me each a dance. 
Althouuh my education was complete; 
So papa came for me, 
To take me home, you see. 
He WH8 80 pronil of me, you know, 
He said, "To Paris we will go. 
And there we'll Btay for a week, 
. So that yonr French you may speak; 
And when yoa go home to mamma, 
Tou'll tell her what yoa've seen. 

I went to Paris with papa, to see what kind the Frenchmen are, 
Such fanny ways they've got — Americans have not; 
Tod really fhoiild to Paris go; yon learn so very mucli, yon know; 
I saw a lot in Paris that they never taught in school. 

And when we came back to mamma, 

She gave a ball, with great eclat ■, 

She said, " My dear, I'll bring yon ont; 

Now show them what you've learned in France, 

Bow well you sing, how well yon dance; 

And, mind yon, show what manners you've been taoght.** 
"-So when the dance t>egan, 

I to my partner ran, 
'■-I kicked my toes up In the air, 
, I'd seen them do it over there; 

My cigarette I drew, 
■ French ladies do that, too. 

And our young cnrate blnstaed so 

When I sat npou bis knee.— CAortM.

Words and Music by Harry 8. Miller. 

In a lonely little garret dwelt a once sweet village belle, .. 

The only place that Bhe dare call a home: 
She had inarritd 'gainst the wiehes of the dear ones who loTed her so well. 

And now 'inidet Btrangei'S she was left alone. 
A youth from city grand had won tier heart and hand — 

He'd pictured to her all so bright and guy; 
It was then the fattier told, " All that glitters, my child. Is not gold.** . 

It soon came true, and she bad cause to say: ''- 

, Chords. 

*♦ If they'd only write and ask me to come home, 

I'd feel aJ> though forgiveness they had shown, 
": And my heart would ceaee its pain, I'd be happy once again— 

If they'd only write and ask me to come home." 

In an humble little cottage sits a father bowed in grief, 

A mother, too, is weeping by his side; 
They have just received a letter, and it told them, in words cmel and brief, 

■riist her they loved with broken heart had died. . 
Oh. had they only known that she was left alone. 

How gladly would they've culled her back again. 
♦Tis the story we all tell, "She had loved not wisely, but too well," 

And not thoonly one we hear exclaim:— CViotm.

My sweetheart is a dark-eyed tirl, she lives right close to me. 
And ev'ry morning in the year her smiling face I see; 
The neighbors all love her, too, she has sucli a winning way. 
And when I come home from my work, I'm often beard to say: 

"I love my girl, and she lo^es me; 
We're just as happy together as we can be; 
We have a cozy, little home: we're married now, yon see; 
For I love my little wife, boys, and she loves me." 

Tee, we've been married quite a while, and very pleased to say 

That we are quite contented now, and never rned the day; 

We've never had a quarrel yet, we haven't got any time. 

And when the rainy day comes 'round yoa'li find ns not behind.— CAA

One Easter Sunday morning, while th^sun was shining clear. 

And good folks to the old ciinrch cume, the parson's prayers to bear; 

They little knew, while seated there, upon that blessed day, 

A human life was ending in a home just o'er the way. '. 

A man in deepest poverty, without a single friend. 

Would answer soon the call of death; his life was nearlng end. 

With no one there to comfort him, no tender words to say — " 

He heard the morning service in tlie church acroes the way. . ;_ 

The ministei'was preaching hii> good and sacred teaching, '-. .. 

The congregation sat in ecitacy; 
The bells had just ceased ringing, the choir was sweetly singing -. 

"Nearer, my God, to thee. 

The preacher's words touched ev'ry heart within those sacred walls; 

He told how honor always thrives and how deception falls. 

The outcast in that humhie home, whose life had been a blank, '•';■ 

Sighed BOftly at those truthful words as nearer death he sank; 

He knew not that the preacher was liis honored brother Ned, 

Whom he'd not seen for years, not since to hide bis crime he fled. 

If he could live life o'er again, his thoughts would never stray 

From each word taoght that morning in the cbnrcb acroaa the w»j.—Clk

We were none of as tblnking of danger, 

Ai the train eped on in the night, 
"I'i 1 1 the flames from a bnmini; forest 

Maiie the passengers wild with fright. 
Then a tiny maid near a window, with ••mile, Mdd, 

" There's nothing to fear; 
I'm sure that no harm will befall yon. 

My Dad 'a the engineer.'* 

"Daddy's on the engine, don't be afraid; 
Dnddy knows what he ie doing," said the little maid; 
" We II goon be out of danjicr, don't yon ever fear; 
Every one is safe, because my Dad's the engineer." 

With the sparks falling closely abnnt as. 

Thro' the flames we (sped on so fast. 
And tlie lirave little maid's father 

Brought ns thro' the danger all safe at last; 
And the proud, sweet face of his lassie. 

And the words of the calm, little dear, | 
Will live in my mem'ry forever, 

" My Dad's the,engineer."—i?«/'rolfl.

There's a little snide street, that yon cannot call sweet. 

Where the Board of Health often will rally; 
It's nhoat a yard wide, and tlie law is defied — 

The police call it Paratlise Alley. 
There'H a girl living there, with cross eyes and red hair. 

And her front iianie, ihey tall me, is Sally; 
£very day on the strt^it she sells Frankfortera sweet. 

That's the sausage of Paradise Alley. 

Every Sanday, even in rain or snow, 
With her Frankfort pudding, 'long the street she'll go; 
All the boys then fny, in a wliispcr low. 
There goes the sausage of Paradise Alley. 

When O'Brien's little boy nsed that girl to annoy. 

They all thoaglit that she would not go near him, 
Bnt she caught him one day, broke hi(i jaw right away. 

Just to show them that slie didn't fi-ar liiin. 
When the young man got well, to a friend he did tell 

How a red-beaded girl they called Sally 
Bad hit titm with a l>one that was harder than stone — 

'Twaa a sausage of Paradise Alley.— (7A<»-u«. 

Bow her hair it got red, by the neighbors 'tis said. 

That, at one time, 'twas black and unsittlitly. 
And young Tommy Killecn said that once it was green. 

And then changed to that color so briglitly : 
8o we guess, hy the l>y, thnt she uses hair dye. 

In a manner, like Mrs. McNaily, 
And I now do proclaim that the color's the same 

As the sausage of Paradise Alley.— C'Aoruf.

Oh, talk ahont yonr sweethearts fair, and girls of high degree; 
Your Bow'ry pearls, and English girls from far across the sea; 
But I can't see where they come in, they never were in line. 
For up-to-date ideas, with this race-track girl of mine. 

My girl's a "corkerl " site's a New Yorker; 

Siie plays the raci'9, stie gets the " dough"; 
Siie loves me dearly, and so sincerely. 

Tell mc how you found that out? She told me Ml 

At Shcepshead Bay, in summer time, she's simply " ont of sight! " 
She bets liir " stuff " like Piitsburgh Phil, and always gets tbem right. 
Tbe " touts," they all take off their bats and stand right In a line. 
And look for information from this race-track girl of mine.— C7 Aorta. 

And when the racing season's o'er, she goes across the " pond "; 
I've heard some tales that dear old Wales of her is very fond. 
In Paris, on the Boulevard, she never fails to shine; 
For every day is Sunday with this race-track girl of nA^e.— Chorut.

At a kind old mother's side sat her eldest boy, her pride, 

Wlio wonUl soon arrive at manliAOd's stage of life. 
When ilie lail iN^gaii to tell of a girl he loved so well. 

And intended askini; her to l>e his wife. 
On that loving motiier's face care at once your eye coald trace. 

Like the change of hrighicxt sunlight into gloara. 
'* Have yoii stopped to think," said she, " what yonr lot In life shoald be. 

Ere you ask a girl to leave a happy bomeT " 

When you ask a girl to leave a happy homeetead. 

And to sail with you o'er matriiiiouy's foam. 
You should have employiiieut then, earn your way and living, 

When you ask a girl to leave a happy borne. 

When tbe kind old mother said, " Tell me, lad, if von were wed, 

How could vou support a wife and drees lier weflf " 
Said the lad, ^' Why, wu could live on the muuey you would give. 

And in one of fatlier's houses we could dwell." 
"But the girl," tlie mother cried, " has a dignity and pride; 

To depend on ns, from home would never roam; 
ThoQgh we'll help yoa all we can, we want yon to act a i 

When yoa aak • gi>l to leaTe a happy home."— CAorv*.

Don't yon remember sweet Alice, Ben Boltf 

Sweet Alice, with hair so brown. 
Who blushed with delight if you g.ive her a amlie. 

And trembled with fear at your frown f 
In the old church-yard, in the valley, Ben Bolt, 

In a corner obscure and lone, 
They have fitted a slab of granite so gray. 

And Alice lies under the stone. 

Under the hickory tree, Ben Bolt, 

That stood at the foot of the bill. 
Together we've lain in tlie noonday shade. 

And listened to Appleton's mill. 
Tbe mill-wheel has fallen to pieces, Ben Bolt, 

The rafters have tumbled In, 
And a qniet that crawls 'ronnd the wall as you gaze. 

Takes tbe place of the olden din. 

Do yna mind tbe cabin of logs, Ben Bolt, 

That stoo<i in tbe pathless w<io<i? 
And the bntton-ball tree, with its motley boughs. 

That nigh by the door-step stood f 
The cabin to ruin has gone, Ben Bolt. 

Yo would look foi the tree in vain; 
And where once the lords of tbe forest stood, ' 

Grows grass and tbe golden grain. 

And don't yon remember the school, Ben Bolt, 

And the master so cruel and grim? 
And the shady nook in the mnning brook. 

Where the children went to swimf 
Grass grows on the master's grave, Ben Bolt, 

Tbe spring of the brook is dry. 
And of all the boys who were ecboolmatea then. 

There are only you and 1. 

There's a change In the things I love, Ben Bolt; 

They have changed from the old to the new; 
But I feel in the core of my stiirlt the tratb, 

There never was a change in yon. 
Twelve months twentv have passed, Ben Bolt, 

Since first we were friends, yet I bail 
Thv presence a blessing, thy friendship a truth, . - 

Ben Bolt of the salt sea gale.
