IN FOUR ACTS.

ACT I.

"Ho, ho!" said careless Willie Gates;
"Who couldn't learn on roller-skates?"

ACT II.

"Ah, ha!" said he, as on the floor
He struck out boldly for the door.

ACT III.

"So, so!" observed the roller-skates,
"We'll interview young William Gates."

ACT IV.

"Oh! Oo-o-o!" said Willie, meek and humble,
"I thought 'twas easy ; now I tumble."'"
