Speaking of Henry Ford's purchase of a million dollars' worth of city bonds, Controller Engel said; 'He talked about buying those bonds exactly as I would talk about buying a sack of peanuts.' — News item.
There's a heap of pent-up goodness
in the yellow bantam corn,
And I sort o' like to linger
round a berry patch at morn;
To live as gently as I can;
To be, no matter where, a man;
To take what comes of good or ill
Mother for me made excuses
When I was a little lad;
Found some reason for my conduct
When it had been very bad.
Can't is the worst word that's written or spoken;
Doing more harm here than slander and lies;
On it is many a strong spirit broken,
The world is bright and sunny —
If you haven't any money,
AFTER all is said and done,
After all the work and fun,
After all the sighing's over
And the laughter fades away,
WE play at our house and have all sorts of fun,
An' there's always a game when supper is done;
An' at our house there's marks on the walls an' the stairs,
CAN you go to another who wins in the fight
And give him a hand-shake that 's true?
Do you find yourself feeling a sense of delight
In the good work another may do?
