    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteMEERSCHAUM, n. (Literally, seafoam, and by many erroneously supposed to be made of it.) A fine white clay, which for convenience in coloring it brown is made into tobacco pipes and smoked by the workmen engaged in that industry. The purpose of coloring it has not been disclosed by the manufacturers.



There was a youth (you've heard before, This woeful tale, may be), Who bought a meerschaum pipe and swore That color it would he!



He shut himself from the world away, Nor any soul he saw. He smoke by night, he smoked by day, As hard as he could draw.



His dog died moaning in the wrath Of winds that blew aloof; The weeds were in the gravel path, The owl was on the roof.



"He's gone afar, he'll come no more," The neighbors sadly say. And so they batter in the door To take his goods away.



Dead, pipe in mouth, the youngster lay, Nut-brown in face and limb.

"That pipe's a lovely white," they say,

"But it has colored him!"



The moral there's small need to sing --

'Tis plain as day to you: Don't play your game on any thing That is a gamester too. --Martin Bulstrode

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteSEVERALTY, n. Separateness, as, lands in severalty, i.e., lands held individually, not in joint ownership. Certain tribes of Indians are believed now to be sufficiently civilized to have in severalty the lands that they have hitherto held as tribal organizations, and could not sell to the Whites for waxen beads and potato whiskey.



Lo! the poor Indian whose unsuited mind Saw death before, hell and the grave behind; Whom thrifty settler ne'er besought to stay -- His small belongings their appointed prey; Whom Dispossession, with alluring wile, Persuaded elsewhere every little while! His fire unquenched and his undying worm By "land in severalty" (charming term!) Are cooled and killed, respectively, at last, And he to his new holding anchored fast!
