. . . But their heavy weights upon the ice, it grieves me to relate,

Were more than it could bear, and so they tumbled in like this!

Shave A Pig!

Illustration:  “Barber, Barber, Shave a Pig.”  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.  McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

“Barber, Barber, Shave a Pig.”

Barber, barber, shave a pig;

How many hairs will make a wig?

“Four and twenty, that’s enough,”

Give the poor barber a pinch of snuff.

“Sneeze on Monday.”

Sneeze on Monday, sneeze for danger;

Sneeze on Tuesday, kiss a stranger;

Sneeze on Wednesday, receive a letter;

Sneeze on Thursday, something better;

Sneeze on Friday, expect sorrow;

Sneeze on Saturday, joy to-morrow.
