&3 AS HE SEES THE
HUMAN SIDE 0' LIFE
Howdy, folks! How air ye to
day 'bout thawed out? Last Sat
urday wu shore a humdinger,
stem-winder, and pipe-buster, wus-
n't it? . u ...
My pipes froa up agin, but I did
n't cuss one Billable this time, see
in' as how I tried it on my pipes
sev'ral years ago an' they frii up
all the harder.
I tride to keep the weather from
getin so cold Sat. nite by takin
the thermometer in the bed with
me, but it didn't seem to do mutch
good. I woke up at 3:00 in the
mornin' an' it wuz zero weather
underneath the kivver; I staid
wake rest o' the nite, case when
my blood gets below zero I caint
sleep. I've not hyeard from Law
rence Kerley what the 'ficial read
in' wuz, but I'de say it wuz least
50 degrees below if he reports it
enny less, I think he orter be fard.
It's reported that the Rushians
sometimes take whole regmints of
Germans froaz stiff as a poker.
Now I don't b'leeve it, caze if they
wuz stiff as that, how in the heck
could they be runnin' so fast.
THE SIGN OF A MAN
The sign of a man, what e'r his
Is seen in the things held dear.
If for children his love is strong,
Dumb animals, women, flowers,
That man we need not fear.
Wine perhaps has weakened him,
Or there's other weakness in lieu;
But these traits are a saving
Their impress is upon the face
Be he of the Gentile or the Jew,
For the heart is there with heart
A big heart and loyal and true.
A true woman's sign ? The things
No matter whoever she might be,
Loves she the same, home and a
Then come what may throughout
She's the woman for 'you and for
Be she high or low on life's rug
Be she straight or erring on the
If music, home and children are
Birds and flowers then we needn't
fear ' -
That woman isn't bad, I will say,
For the heart is there, be she plain
or fair, ,. .
Heart sincere, loving, and kind
BILL SHANTER'S DREAM
Bill Shanter wuz a grate big guy
But you would never think
That he could out eat enny man
This side o' Kuttyhink.
One nite last year, in early March,
He et an awful batch:
Ten cakes, six aigs, a dish o steak
An' other things to match.
Then Bill forthwith "turned in" to
His wife, Zoe, said he'de live;
But naybor, Zeke, said "Little hope,
Not mutch ler BUI 1 ae give.
Well, Bill, he moaned an' kicked
On 'till way up in the nite,
When all at onct he raised in bed,
As if in awful fright.
"I dramp," said Bill, "I wuz a bird
An' flew from peak to peak, ,
But I'se so full of my own aigs
("That's the aigs in him," said
"An' I dremp I was a coffee tree,
Down wher big rivers flow,
With steamin' coffee on my lim's"
"But the moast excitin' dream I
had, '. : '
I wuz a steer could bawl,
A grate big steer, all runnin' wild"
("That's the steak in him," , said
' all.) ..
