The merchant with a, stock of flies!
For, tell me, what
What earthly use,
It is to swat
When flies are loose,
If all the fruit and half the meat
And other food you have to eat'
Has been the common stamping
For all the flies in blocks around?
Don't patronize the merchant who
Has foodstuffs open to the, view,
Without a glass, without a screen
To keep them insectless and clean;
So when you find a grocery store
With fifty million flies or more
You'll turn and say,
In accents clear,
"No, thanks good day!
I won't trade here.
I'll try some other place for mine
Where flies don't find a 'welcome'
And where they're not on pleasant
With fifty-seven brands of germs."
That's what I'd say .
And go away
The merchant with a stock of flies!
It is very necessary that the stu
dious child should be encouraged to
take enough outdoor exercise -to pro
tect its health and insure its growth.
Teacher and parentworking together
will find it possible to correct the "too
much indoors" error.
