MR. GROCER: HERE'S A GOOD SIGN TO POST IN
, (Buy Not Unless You Live Up To It.)
WASN'T A TBACE OF COBBUPTION.
NO QLUCOSE IH IT, HO ADPLE

one long black suede glove, and
when I got down to the hall and
found all the other guests my
dear, I was the best dressed wo-.
Don't get sore because
And riave and roar at fate,
Be thankful you can eat all right,
And have hair upon your plate.
The parrot is, so I believe,
A most annoying creature,
He saves his choicest cussing up
To hand out to the preacher,
