An Epitaph
Her has flew away from here,
Went away from sin and shame,
Heav'n will say, "Walk in, my dear,"
When she whispers, "I have came!"
Says Mrs. Jones to Mrs. Brown.
''Why don't you call on me?"
Says Mrs. Brown to Mrs. Jones,

girl, when I was your age I never ran about
the streets; I always went to bed at eight
o'clock, and to church on Sunday.
Kid-Huh, must a been brung up in a
orphan's home.
lie-Let me be your mighty oak and
you my clinging vine.
She-No, thanks. It would be more a
case of an ivy plant clinging to an old ruin.
"Bangs says that our minister has gone
to the devil since he got to Europe."
"Naw, he said that the last he heard
from him the parson was going to Rouen.
