121 days. From which take the 52 Sundays, leaves 69 days.
Now, there are 52 Saturday afternoons off, which makes 26 days,
which, taken from 69. leaves 43 days, from which deduct 15 legal holidays,
which leaves 28 working days; but every man gets two weeks’ vacation
on full pay, which, taken from 28, leaves 14 days; and as every man has
an hour each day for dinner, which amounts to 13 days in a year, there
is only one day left. This day happened to be St. Patrick’s day and the
Irishmen refused to work on St. Patrick’s day, so the contractor arranged
for a couple of GARY TRUCKS to take the place of the six teams and
drivers and so settled his labor troubles and solved his hauling problems
without a strike or lockout and to the entire satisfaction of all concerned.

the contractor was wrong in his figures, but light in his conclusion to

These orders good only on new future advertising, not on old contracts
