A Fable forthelistraetiem of Mr. Hayrs. ;
From Uncle Sam.
A wild bull and an ass one day,
By chance met In a narrow way,
' , Where each against the rock must squeeze,
If they would pass along with ease.
The bull, though of an Iron will,
With deferential air stood still,
- And said, "Now half the road Is thine,
- And half the space by right Is mine;
- So let us choose the friendly plan,
And move along as best we can."
"Not so," the stubborn ass replied,
Whof blinded by his foolish pride,
Mistook the traveler's civil air
For evidence of craven fear.
"The right of way Is mine alone,
And you must back, while I move on;
Or else I'll stand here as you see
Till you shall starve or yield to me."
Now, angered at conceit so great,
The bull at once cut short debate,
And bowing low his massive head,
He tossed the braying quadruped
So far upon his airy road,
A spreading oak received the load.
The ass found all his efforts vain
To disengage himself again,
. And there he would be hanging still,
, A mark for crow or raven bilL
But people came from miles around,
To saw the limbs and pad the ground,
And worked for hours ere they could free
That foolish creature from the tree.
