HcxxO With HiiRers manicured flue, with eve-lids massaged each night, A woman sat in a spotless shirtwaist, at work by electric light; Stitch, stitch, stitch, with scarce time to eat or rest, And still with a voice by Delsnrte trained, she sang this song of the West: Work, work, work, its 110 in the shade, , « And work, work, with cooking and beds to be made. It 1 s oh! to have a slave; but they're thirty dollars, I'm told; No washing, nights out, a piano to play, or useless and sassy and old. Work, work, work, with no time for repose, Work, work, work; when the freight war ends nobody knows; Tucks and ruffles and gores, featherstitch, French-knots and lace, Till over the shining I fall asleep and fall over flat on uiy face. Oh! men with sisters dear, Oh! men with mothers and wives Please do get up and water the lawn, feed the chickens and clean the knives. Work, work, work, I've a paper to write on "rolled wheat," Work, work, work, the church must bo kept on its feet, Cook and bake and wash, wash and cook and bake. The children need clothes, but dear only knows, whether by Easter they'll make. Work, work, work, in a blaze of golden light, Work, work, work, the weather's too warm and bright. The children are making dirt pies; I must stop them; its-real ly a sin. The boss is coming home from work and a caller has just stepped in. It's oh! to sit at ease, 'mid the flowers in my garden bright, But alas! there are weeds to hoe, and the sprinkling to do every night. But, one short hour to feel An eastern twenty below Would cure all my plaints in a very short time; So I guess I'll stay here, you know. — Rosa C. Clarke. Every man is a poet who has it in his heart to say: ' 'It is a flue day.'' Poetry is not an abnormal product of the mind. It is the normal from which we have widely swung in these days <jf drudgery. Many a man spoke to the Scribbler and said it •was a fine day this week, for which Southern California bo praised. These days with the cool mantle of fog in the morning, lifting in the early hours for sunshine with gentle breeze, continuing until the sun goes down like a glowing caunonball with only a few minutes of gloriously colored twiligh'- these are the days making every man a poet. And this appreciation is not written for the benefit of tourists. Some things we reserve for ourselves. If the upper San Gabriel valley ia contemplating the formation of a large choral society, the project should be encouraged in every way. Let utt remind you of something from a sordid viuvv if you will not look at it from the educational and musical standpoint. A big Biiccessful society means that the name of Covinii ami environs will go into tht3 Southern California papers for big, appreciative, write-ups of this affair advertising space for which Covina would lie obliged to pay good, hard dollars if the same space were devoted to display exploitation. That's one way of looking at it. It'ci a safe bet that many a man thi.s week told his wife with a t-our face that he didn't want to K<> t'> the circus, but that he Vposed he'd have to KO and take the kida. Oh, what a blfa->int! children are sometimes! Tnat would he the only excuse to the uian who wouldn't rni=a the eir- oiio if he had to (jo in disuse. Kids indeed! There is no man too old lint to enjoy the circus. The annual circus i* a safety valve which blow-, off about this lime each year. iJon't dissemble. (Jn 10 the circu-j and say you like it, because v A rather laughable paragraph in a paper from the far east is that which deals solemnly with the question as to whether the citizens will be able to stand the smell of crude oil if it is applied to the roods. It seems that the east is slowly waking up to oil as a layer of dust. The transcontinental railroads use it, but the eastern towns still stand back and discuss it with disfavor. Oil sprinkled on those splendid macadam roads of the east would not injure the olfactory nerves of anyone and would obviate the necessity of running the omnipresent water-wagon. And then again, if they didn't have water-wagons, nobody vould bo in danger of falling off. It's a pleasant sound of mornings to hear the school bell. All summer long we missed it. The troops of children on their way back and forth give the town an enlivening atmosphere. It is on incentive to hustle. And just about the time we get our school houses all built we'll have to remodel them to make more room. Demand for Government Stenographers, Railway Mail Clerks, Bookkeepers, Etc. For some time there has been such demand for Stenograohers, Kail way Mail Clerks, Bookkeepers, Forest Clerks, Isthmian Canal Clerks, etc., that the government is having trouble to secure enough help to meet the needs of the service—due, no doubt, to the fact that so few know how to go about preparing for and securing these positions. These positions are quite pleasant and practically permanent; the work is light, the hours short, the pay good—81200 to 81000 a year to begin with in the Philippines and Panama (with free transportation), and nearly as much in the U. S. A good thing about many of these positions ia that they constitute the very best preparation for any other line of clerical or commercial work. The San Bernardino Business College and Civii Service Institute is the only school in California making a specialty of coaching for the U. S. Civil Service and assisting young people to secure goverment position's, examinations for which are held in the same building occupied by this school. Particulars can always be had by writing the school. How's Your Stationery? Once in awhile an idea for advertising finds favor immediately with the public. That is the experience the Argus is meeting with in relation to the new commercial envelopes just now put on the market. An attractively printed envelope is a rare thing—it is a hard matter to accomplish, but judging from orders we think we have solved it this time. The envelope is printed on the reverse side in green or blue ink, netting forth in clean type the advantages of Covina and vicinity, speaking of the 800,000 high school and of other things of which wo uro justly proud. The retail price is ten cents the bunch at Clapp's ding store, and it will pay you to ask him to show a sample. The Argus shop will supply the rancher or business man with this same envelope hi quantities! not less than 250 for a siriglo order, and will place th« regular business address of tho purchaser on the front. Order your stationery made this way arid keep in thu front rank. We have already sold over ]0,."iM(j ( ,f them. Convention in Pomona.
