A FATAL PROFESSION.

" Well, Mr. Smythe, you've passed your examination very satisfactorily, but stay - what is your profession ? " asked the Insurance company man. - " I am - er - er - a - poet, " said Smythe, blushing. - " Oh ; and do you take or send your poems ? " - " I usually call with them, " said the rhymester. - " In that case, Mr. Smythe, " said the official, shutting his book with a snap, "we certainly shouldn't think of insuring your life ! Good morning ? "
