"THE SUNDAY CALL"
/ paid five cents for a Sunday Call
It took me a jveefy to read it all;
I piled the sections upon the floor.
Till they reached the top of the kitchen door;
J hung the chromos upon the wall,
.md there wasn't room to hang them all;
The yard ii covered about ten feet deep.
With the comic sections of that Sunday sheet;
There were sections of pink and sheets of green,
A woman's section and a magazine;
And sheets of music the same if played,
Jt ould mak.e an audience quickly fade;
There were also patterns for women's gowns.
And lots of gentlemen' s hand me downs;
Patterns of all kmds and rubber dolls;
Ads for shot guns and parasols.
Why man, you need a wagon to haul,
A nickel's worth of that Sunday Call.
1 have taken The Call for about twenty years, but the issue
of Sunday, February 23d, to my mind, was the greatest of all.

Your Thumb for a Match
When you want a bright instant light just press your
thumb against an electric light button. When you desire
darkness do the same thing. Pressing a button that's
beside you means light ahead of you —coming up a dark
stairway, for instance.
Electric light is clean, quick, convenient.
Once have it in the house you'll wonder how you ever
got along without it. ',
It saves you much work, is always ready day or night,
and it does make things cheery. And just at the touch
of a button.
