VOL. V. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1872. No. 1.


[Illustration: MAUD MÜLLER.--DRAWN BY GEORGIE A. DAVIS.]

"MAUD MÜLLER looked and sighed: 'Ah, me! That I the Judge's bride might be!

"'He would dress me up in silks so fine, And praise and toast me at his wine.

"'My father should wear a broad-cloth coat: My brother should sail a painted boat.'

"'I'd dress my mother so grand and gay, And the baby should have a new toy each day.

"'And I'd feed the hungry and clothe the poor. And all should bless me who left our door.

"The Judge looked back as he climbed the hill, And saw Maud Müller standing still.

"'A form more fair, a face more sweet, Ne'er hath it been my lot to meet.

"'And her modest answer and graceful air, Show her wise and good as she is fair.
