THE SWEET LITTLE MAN.

DEDICATED TO THE BTAY-AT HOME RANGERS.

, The following verses were written by Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes for the benefit of certain "nut." of U.S A , who would not go to the war between North and South, but preferred lounging at ease and criticising their betters:—

All tbe brave boys under canvas are sleeping, All of them pressing to march with the van. Far from the home where their sweet-hearts are weeping; What are you waiting for, sweet little man?

You with the terrible warlike moustaches, Fit for a colonel or chief of a clan; You with the waist made for swordbelts and sashes; Where are your shoulder straps, sweeet little man?

BiiiTj him the buttonless garment of woman! Cover his face lest it freckle end tan ! Muster the Apron String Guards on the Common— . That is the corps for tbo swoet little man .

All the fair maidonß about him shall cluster, Pluck the white feathers from bonnet rn_ fan, . , Make him a plume like a turkey wing nus.

That is the crest for the sweet little Man

Every prudeot man carries "NAZOL" i his vest pocket Nothing so good for pre venting and relieving oougha and colds 6rj doses 1/6.
