We of the lesser mind, in our
news do each day find, things that
make us worry. And as we scan
the headlines bold, we read of how
this world is sold, on buying war
stuff in a huTry. Now as you read
each line like that, just count it
out asi idle chat, they can’t soldier
your sweet brat, nor disturb the
family cat, nor find out where the
mop is at, let them scurry.
Now if we take the big shots
first, and with war we quench their
thirst, oh let’s not tarry. They
shout out their patriotism, and all
the other kinds of zizism, of the lot
be wary. For with all their milk
and honey, all they want is filthy
money, and death’s bone hand to
parry. Pay no mind to their great
boasting, to their wining, dining,
toasting, their money-carts down
hill are coasting, and in hell they’ll
soon he roasting, just be wary.
Cader Brannon, of the Sinclair
Service, versatile mechanic and
utility man had an ideal job on
Tuesday last. The front wheel brake
on a 28 Ford needed relining and
Brother Cader drew up a cushion.
Or rather, he drove the car up to
the cushion and seated himself at
his work as any other hrtist would
have done- I am sure even the
great Paderewski would have en
vied the courtly manner in which
Mr. Brannon began his, labor, es
pecially the many-springed seat
upon which his utmost was resting.
I’m ready to bop the next bird
on the head who makes that cute
remark about it only being ”208
or so days before Christmas.”
Lewis and hi& CIO are probably
one of the many things we Ameri
cans have to put up with. Some
man has to feel the pulse of the
people and feed them digitalis tab
lets to hold it down until they’re
ready for some office then give
a quick shot of stricknen to pep
i up the voting booth. Boy, you have
to hand it to Lewis, Mulcleinney,
and Hitler. All leaders naturally
are able to feel the Tise and fall
of the human emotional tide.
Horace, of the McMullen variety,
said he had been told that women
used to use perfume in lieu of tak
ing to the bath tub. He furthers
his comment that so far as he can
perceive, THE STILL DO!
What about it, ladies?
Who was the young lady (good
looker that she is) who was pun
ished for mussing up a table by be
ing kissed thoroughly by a drag
store cowboy ?
Upsy daisy, thar podner.
Horace says he was standing be
tween two love-birds recently and
that their looks of love passed thru
him. The sensation, he continued,
was like unto flushing a covey of
partridges in his chest. In other
words (his words) his very soul
vibrated to their emanating emot
ings.
Yoo-Hooinglv yours. f
