The New Cup
by [?]


“I’ve a lovely new cup from Uncle John,”
Said Dorothy; “only see–
It has beautiful golden letters on,
And they spell ‘Remember Me.'”

“Oho!” laughed Fred. “Why, Dorothy dear,
They put that on mugs and plates:
I‘ve studied jography ‘most a year,
And I know the names of the States.

And when you see that anywhere,–
At least, since this fuss with Spain,–
It’s the President who puts it there,
And it means ‘Remember the Maine’!”
