A TALE OF A CAN, A FLY, AND A TAIL
v By "Larry Ho."
, ,
. ,
A sad little dog with a can on his tail
at'down in a corner to weep and to wail;
He moaned "O I wish that my tail were cut off,
And then at the naughty boys gaily I'd scoff.
A man came along with a very kind heart
And he said "If you really are anxious to part
With the tail that your parents have given to you
Why I have an axe and I know what to do.
'wSo4with speed and percision he deftly undid
That dog's little wagger just as he was bid ;
The'dog gave a howl, and then smiled at the man
And saidr'O-how sassy I'll be to that can."
i, "
, ,The days rolled along and the summer drew nigh
! Anil" one little dog looked real good to a fly
The ny rooted firm with its sharp little toes
And the dog had no tail to disturb its repose
i
Along came another fly, then came some more
They camped on the back of the dog "by the-score
And thpn did that dqggy thus hopelessly wail
O my, how I wish that I had my old tail.
So he hustled away and he looked up the man
"O give me my tail, though it wear a tin-can.'y
Tne man was distracted: "O that I can't do
For your tail disappeared in a holiday stew."
, O little dogs given to endless complaint
I trust that hereafter you'll practice restraint.
O better a can on your tail, though you screech
.ThanV fly on your back when you've no tail to teach

"The car4s are market!" said
the: man.
lThe woman cowered. ,
i v?The cards are marked !" he re
pated. - ",'
There was no tragedy, how
ever." Seems the ba"by had got
ten hold of a lead pencil and
marked up the euchre deck.
