NURSERY RHYMES FOR WARLIKE TIMES

Jack and Jill went up the hill, And at what they saw wore stunned; They both ifSmo down and gave half a crown To tlio Prince of Wales's Fund. Mary had a little lamb, .Us fleece was as black as your boots, But she's made if, into nice ivurm socks * For Kitchener's new recruit*. Little Jack Horner sat,in a corner. Looking distinctly sottish, But he. pulled himself up with a final hie-cup, And he's now in the London Scottish. Litt'e IJo-T'cep hns lost her Sheep And can't tell where to find them: It is ten to one that, some horrible Hun Ts savagely riding behind them. A very little, man had a very little gun, But" its bullets were, made of lead, lead, lead; Von Khtck, And now quite a lot of them are dead, dead, dead. —From 'The. Books of To-day and Ihs Books of To-morrow.'
