Can't you remember how you crammed the itchy stuff down in your long black cotton - ribbed stockings? Knots like misplaced muscles sticking out. Over that long underwear, black sateen bloomers and black sateen petticoats briar-stitched in red were worn smackup till Easter morning and then you were stripped down to white starched drawers and petticoats, whether it was snowing or not and the next day you developed anything from a runny nose to frost bitten feet.

They surely lived at the North Pole, or else didn't have blue Jays in mind. A man can't very well make for himself a place in the sun if he keeps continually taking refuge under the family tree. Elie Metchnikoff, one of the world's greatest bloligists, had the theory that old age Is brought on by accumulations of putrefactive bacteria in the intestines, and that, to check these, preparations of sour milk should be included in the diet.

This is just a little I added to it. The fellow who has pity for his unfortunate fellowman remembers himself at sometime in his life of. being in the same fix. The old saying, "There's nothing new under the sun," goes for every human being we weren't made to escape things while the other fellow gets everything going in the way of bad luck.
