  "All  men  are  ingrates,"  sneered  the  cynic.  "Nay," 
  The  good  philanthropist  replied; 
  "I  did  great  service  to  a  man  one  day 
  Who  never  since  has  cursed  me  to  repay, 
  Nor  vilified." 
 
  "Ho!"  cried  the  cynic,  "lead  me  to  him  straight  -- 
  With  veneration  I  am  overcome, 
  And  fain  would  have  his  blessing."  "Sad  your  fate  -- 
  He  cannot  bless  you  for  AI  grieve  to  state 
  This  man  is  dumb."
