THIS ONE OUGHT TO BE SIMPLE
Read this over slowly and pay close
attention to the time of each opera
tion: Just suppose twice sixty letters
Should be sent you every day,
Would you leave them to your bet
ters? Surely, you'd not run away!
Once again, suppose dictating
To two typists each reply
Took four minutes that's fair rat
ing, Though to beat it you might try
And suppose the typists rattled
These replies with all their power,
And, however hard they battled,
Could dash off but twelve an hour;
And the suppose the task of signing
And re-reading each neat sheet

A good thirty seconds' feat;
Now, how long, pray, would be
Ere your task complete would be
If this thoughtful point you'd heeded:
Equal labor for all three?
When you get the answer it will
be nine hours. Try it.
To exterminate ants from the
larder, wash the shelves, then dip a
small paint-brush in a little pure car
bolic acid and smear along the edges
of the shelves and bottom of the door.
This will not leave an unpleasant
odor, and will drive the ants out.
