winter comes on every hand Snow shovels bloom so gay AmeriAnd brightly sing their merry songs Throughout the dark cold day The people then do sally forth To clear the walks of snow And heave it gently to one side Because they love it so An evil tool the shovel is That breaks the backs of men And much they hate it all day long When winter comes again And yet it blooms the w i n t er through Nor minds the snow a bit It gaily sings day after day While much enjoying it Which it was our intention to write a few verses of an humorous nature But the more we wrote about the pestiferous shovel its way of life and of all the misery and heartbreak it causes the more exasperated we became and we lost all our sense of humor in one dull sickening plop And to add insult to injury and exasperation as a usual thing from the time of the first snow un til about the last of March one no sooner rids the walks of one snow Public AUCTION As I am quitting fanning I will sell the following property on the

the fuss about by the city folks over the recent snow precipitation He says those who holler about excessive snow in the city were to come out on a farm they would know what an over sized snow storm really means in an unappreciated way He says the first thing he did that morning was to take off for the barn He waded toward it until the snow reached up lo his neck so he had to wade back and get a shovel and it took him 30 mins to get through Then another 15 mins to get to the pig lot and another five minutes to shovel a path to the b And he hadnt been able to get down to the mail box yet It must be pretty tough living on a farm in the winter TIS TOUGH TO HAVE TO SHOVEL SNOW TO EVERYWHERE ONE WANTS TO GO Note to Walter Schwandt Con gratulations on being elected pres ident of the North
