Whenever you think you've come to the end, And you're beaten as bad as can be, Remember the diamonds are chunks of coal, That stuck to their jobs, you see. Reprinted from DeWitt Clintonian. The only stationery Dad needs for writing the children away at school is a checkbook. Joe has it from Henry direct that he intends to put whiskers on Fords.
