In vain, though banished from thy heart,
I strive to bend to fortune's will;
I cannot with fond memory part,
Thine image, dear one, haunts me still.
Thy smile, that dazzling beam of light,
That gilded hope's bright morning ray,
That starred the darkest hours of night,
I worship still, though turned, though turned away.

Though banished from my heart, still mine
Remembers thee with fond regret,
I know thy love can never be mine,
But, ah! I never can forget;
My ever-constant thoughts are thine,
Ah! no, I never, never can, I never can forget.

Nor time, nor change of scene, to me
Afford their balm to soothe my pain;
My heart, though broken, clings to thee, 
Reluctant to unloose thy chain.
Thy form, each feature, every grace,
As first they dawned upon my view,
The tyrant, memory, may retrace,
But never can one pang, one pang subdue.-Chorus.

"Hullo Mike, I hear yer on a strike." "So I am. I struck
for fewer hours." "Did you succeed?" "Indeed I did. I'm
not working at all now." Philadelphia Call.

Father-Tommy, you should try and be a better boy, You
are our only child, and we expect you to be good. Tommy-It
ain't my fault that I'm your only child. It is tough on me to be
good for a lot of brothers and sisters I haven't got.

"I say, Jobkins, can you let me have the dollar you owe
me?" "Want it to-day, particularly?" "Well, you see, I have
the toothache." "What has that to do with it?" "A great
shock will cure the toothache, Jobkins, and I thought, perhaps, if
you paid me I---er---. Thank you."
