"these prices cement apart."

It takes some time to get the fowls

turkey here the day before Christ
and put him even on the local mar

for the trade. It seems people
will never learn this." Turkeys

Croup and La Grippe because it

A poet has said of the saloon that it is
appropriately called a bar:
A bar to heaven a door to hell;
Whoever named it named it well.
A bar to manliness and wealth,
A door to want and broken health.
A bar to honor, pride and fame,
A door to sin and grief and shame.
A bar to hope and a bar to prayer,
A door to darkness and despair.
A bar to honored useful life.
A door to brawling, senseless strife.
A bar to all that's true and brave,
A door to every drunkard's grave.
A bar to joy that home imparts,
A door to tears and aching heats.
A bar to heaven, a door to hell,
Whoever named It named It well.
