[blocks in formation]

How shall I Woo Thee? or, the Heart's Outpourings.

A curious and beautiful collection of love poems. Tenderly delicate, sweetly pathetic, and amusingly quizzical. Written in modern familiar style, with plain and candid declarations of love, warmly or moderately expressed, or delicately hinted at, as the case may be, and some of them boldly popping the question to the fair recipient. Some are sweetly responding, some are coyly denying, others vague and non-committal or else playfully coquetting; in short, they comprise all phases of letters in rhyme that one would naturally be supposed to use in a love declaration, whether in fun or in earnest. 1 vol., neat paper covers, price, 30 cents.

Minstrel Gags and End Men's Hand-Book.

Being a collection of Ethiopian Dialogues, Plantation Scenes, Eccentric Doings, Humorous Lectures, Laughable Interludes, End Men's Jokes, Huge Africanisms, Burlesque Speeches, Mirth-Provoking Jokes, Witticisms, Conundrums, Yarns, Plantation Songs and Dances, etc., etc.; in short, a complete Hand-Book of Burnt Cork Drollery, which will be found alike useful to the Professional and Amateur. 1 vol., neat paper covers, price, 30 cents.

The Language of Flowers.

A complete Dictionary of the Language of Flowers, and the sentiments which they express. Well arranged and comprehensive in every detail. All unnecessary matter has. been omitted. This little volume is destined to fill a want long felt, for a reliable book, at a price within the reach of all. i6mo, neat paper covers, price, 25 cents.
