Why EVerybodyWork8 But the "Head"
of the Family.
There, is a topical song greatly in
vogue at present which is rather xough
on the head of the family. It goes,
something like this: . - ' " ;
"Everybody works but father,
, . He stays it home all day;
Sitting around the fire,
Smoking his pipe of clay.
Mother takes in washing.
So does sister Ann;
. Everybody works but father,
My old man."
But "father" has yet to tell his side
of the story. It will be found in the
reports of the various factory inspect
ors, and it shows that father deserves
pity instead of ridicule. His side of it
may be also told in doggerel:
Mother works in a sweatshop,
Jenny goes out to spin;
Kit is ''cash" in a department store
-! Gee whiz, how the money comes in.
Jimmy picks slate in, a breaker,
"John i9 a "blower's dog;"
Everybody works but father,-'
A "chink's" got his job.
This would hardly run the gauntlet
of, a literary critic, -but it is, a mighty
powerful, showing why father does net
work, and if the exclusion ' bars are
let down; more an? more white fathers
will' "sit around ail day,' and ."chinks"
get father's job.--Mine Worker.

Louis Connolly of the stereotypers

convincing and sharpest reply to a
fresh clerk who knocked on the label,
that we ever heard In our lives. Mr.
Connolly had asked for the union la
beled goods, and, as usual, was getting
the customary advice from the clerk
as to what he ought to buy. Finally
the clerk thought he had one that
would floor ; big-hearted and honest

question: ."What is the-difference be.
