"CONNAUGHT" came to the front again,
  This year at London Show;
He well deserved the prize he won,
  I think you all well know.
 
He marched around the show ring,
   With heart so light and gay;
There's nothing like good breeding,
   Ta's "Denmark" and "Fireaway."
 
Although he has been laid aside,
   His symmetry's the same;
Just as it was in boyhood,
  And to the front he came.
 
And that's induced his owner,
  To double his service fee;
So now it's twenty guineas,
  And that's too much for me.
 
"Connaught"
Foaled in 1888

But you can have one of that breed,
  By coming to Nothard's Stud;
For he has one by old "Connaught,"
  That's equally as good.
 
His dam is got by old "Danegelt,"
  That's so lately passed away;
He was the leading sire,
  Of roadsters in his day.
 
Here you have the finest sire--
  Connaught and "Danegelt's" blood--;
That you can find, go where you will,
  In any other stud.
 
And if you have not seen him,
  Come down at once and call;
His service fee is very low---
  Two guineas pays it all.
