[Br a Gb,vs3-sked Poet]
y>u ever b en grass-seeding on th* hilU around the bays?
It'a very strenuous labour, so everybody says; If you're Irainirg for a contest, if you wait . to win tbe mile — - — Just go and harvest cocks-fcot in the Banks Peninsula 9tylr.
If jou're a boxirg champion of merely local ■ '■*,• fame, And aspire to beat Jack Johnson and make a world.known name 5 Don't go into training quarters, you can with those dispense— s*E<jtke a hook, go grass seeding—better train
ing. no expense,
If jou're troubled with djspeps'a and cannot eatafefd, Tjbave your home, put 'up Matilda, get out amongst tbe seed ; Too will have no need for doatore, or drugs that do not cure, *By the time the eeason'a over you will eat and sleep for sure.
If you chance to ho a boozar, and the bocze begins to pall — Get out, acquire a grass Ihirst, tb.9 best ttrrsfc of them all; When you're sinking you're first pint with v,. the season all behind, Sfftaectar 'from the gods like this—no Euc-b joy on earth you'H find.
