Not illustrated. 1919 edition. Excerpt: ...John Barleycorn, In a grave both deep and wide, And now My Lady Nicotine They'd lay down by your side. The Prohibs guard your grave, John, And dance in ghoulish glee. They think they have laid you out For all eternity. You raised a lot of hell, John, And you held a lot of joy. But all the warmth and cheer you brought Counts not for you, old boy. How long will you lie buried, John, No mortal man can say. It may be till old Gabriel's horn Awakes you on judgment day. You may be yet a come-back, John, And resurrection know. This is the land of Liberty. The Fathers made it so. And you, My Lady Nicotine, With all the joys you bring, And all the many charms you have, Of which our lovers sing. They're after you, my lady fair, But a harder job they've found Than when they laid John B. down in The cold and silent ground. Whom Would You Think?

"Pardon me," added the butcher, gazing patronizingly at this personage "you're one of the family that's been abroad and whom I haven't had the pleasure of meeting before, perhaps?" "Ye'll hav' t' go higher than thot." "Not Mr. Malcolm's new wife?" gasped the fat liile man. "I didn't have a suspicion that he--" "Higher, mon. O'im higher." "Higher?" uttered the perfectly bewildered butcher. "Yis. O'im the cook." more
