...home; And soon, too soon, we part with pain, To sail o'er silent seas again.
PROVERBS AND POPULAR SAYINGS.
A barking dog seldom bites. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. A cat may look at a king. A chip of the old block. A day after the fair. A fool and his money are soon parted. A fool may ask more questions in an hour than a wise man can answer in seven years. A fool may make money, but it needs a wise man to spend it. A friend in need is a friend indeed.A good garden may have some weeds.A good workman is known by his chips. A hard beginning makes a good ending.

Three little kittens lost their mittens, And they began to cry: "O mother dear, we very much fear That we have lost our mittens."
"Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens! Then you shall have no pie." "Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow! And we can have no pie. Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow!"
