the boss was sitting in a restrant
watelng for his lunch when he no-
l tised a old man that looked like a
farmer sitting nere by him & on the
. other side -of the tabel a fresh young
l-fellow was
!v purty soon they brought the feed
in to the old man & before he touched
anny of it he folded his "hands & said
grace
while he was doing that the young
smart aleck snikered & tried to get
other peepel to look at the old man-
but they dident laff, none but him
soon the old man raised up his
head & began to feed his face
you must be a old-fashioned guy,
the smart young feller said to the
farmer, i gess down where you live
evryboddy says grace '
the old man gave him the onct over
& then he said, no, young man they
dont . N

gess the rest of em aint so old fash-
;- ioned as you, eh, old sport
well, said the farmer verry slowly,
while all the rest of the peepel near
lissened, i have some remarkably fine
pigs on my farm, but i suppose they
are new fashioned, for i feed them
well and they never have to wo.rk and
they are well cared for but my pigs
