THE EW MAIOE..
I ( pologics to E. A. 1 'oe. i
j Once upon a midnight dreary, while I
wandered weak and weary,
j Dowu a street of our great city, where I'd
often been before;
Walking on, a sudden feeling ctnie to me
' as I saw wheeling,
(ienlly o'er the pavement stealing, so m e-
tning like a uympli ol yort;
Surely 'tis a mnid, I muttered, maiden
from the Turkish shore.
Simply this and nothing more.
But there bad been various rumors that
the maids were decked in bloomer-.
And I thought me, this is surely ope that
I have seen belore:
Yet where had the figure vanished?
Was i lie form of beauty fam
ished? Had the Goel of Fashion bauisbed all the
dress that I adore!1
No, 'tis Dot a female, said I; but a man
gone Wilde with lore.
'Tis a male and nothing more.
Presently my soul grew strontjer; hesita
ting then no longer,
"Are you man or maiden?" said I. "Tell
tne truly, I implore."
What was my snrpri-e on hearing that
strange being, Dotbing letring.
Say to me wilh voice so cheering: "I am
maid, sir, to the core.''
Yes. she jumped from oft" her cycle. Hay
ing on the starlit shore:
' I am maid toreverniore."'
I bethought me for a second, then 1 to the
Drew" her to one side, and there the
sentiments of my heart did pour;
Said unto her: "Will you ever from these
-hocking garments screr?
Make me answer, shall I never see the
skirts that once you wore?
When will you again adopt the costume
that your mothers bo'c? '
Quoth the maiden "Nevermore.''
And the maiden, ever rlittiug, still is sit
ting, still is silting,
On those wheels with tires inflated, and
around the streets doth soar,
While her pants hare all the seeming of
Ja.ks blouse with apples teem
ing. Or a maid who in b. r dreaming bad for
got to cover o'er;
But the common sense evolving from the
heathen days of yore.
Shall be lifted nevermore.

WHY DO WE I0 ITT
Perhaps some sage can tell me
died, I'd like to know
The secret of the titles that I hear where'er
There's Brown, who studied medicine, at
taining some renown.
Whose w ife 1 bear referred to now as ''Mrs
Dr. Brown. '
What reason for the custom can the wise
ones give to me?
Why not ao well reier to her as "Mrs.
Brown, M. 1),V
Because O Shea is one ou the bench why
should we always say.
In speaking ol his charming wife,
'There's Mrs. Judge O'Shea?''
Is -he p. judge by marriage? Was she wed
ded lo the court?
There should be some g od reason while
the title she should sport.
If one should wed a justice, pray advise
me would she be
Entitled to be known by all as "Mrs.
If not. w hat reason can we
ive for speak- ;

I)j titles go to families for use of
And if they do, why aren't they used
daughter anil by son?
Why not a "Miss Lieutenant Sharp?
