SONGS FOR THE SENTIMENTAL.—­No. 10.

  You talk of love—­I would believe
    Thy words were truth;
  Nor deem that thou wouldst e’er deceive
    My artless youth: 
      But when we part,
      Within my heart
  A small voice whispers low—­
      Beware!  Beware! 
      Fond girl, the snare!
  it’s all no go!

  You talk of love—­yet would betray
    The heart you seek,
  And smile upon its slow decay,
    If ’twould not break. 
      In vain you swear
      That I am fair,
  That heaven is on my lip! 
      I know each vow
      Is worthless now;
  [Illustration:  YOU’VE MISS’D YOUR TIP.]

THE TWO NEW EQUITY JUDGES.

“Between the two new Equity Courts, the suitors in Chancery will be much better off than formerly”—­said Fitzroy Kelly, lately, to an intimate.  “Undoubtedly,” replied the friend, “they may now choose between the frying-pan and the fire.”
