A Little Story With a Big
Thought in It.
A m onth ago the R ed C ross chapter
In Bay City, Mich., received a hurry
up call for 150 dunnage bags. Troops
were about to move, and through an
oversight th e ir equipm ent was not
complete. The bags had to be made
and sent w ithin 48 hours. A request
for help w as sen t over the town, and
the sto res w ere searched successfully
for the rig h t m aterials. Among those
who quickly responded and cam e to
the ch ap ter w orkroom s to help were
two little girls, sisters, about ten and
tw elve y e a rs of age, each eager to lend
a hand and do som ething fo r the boys
who w ere going to th e front. All day
long the fingers of the women and
the little girls w ere fairly flying. Bag
a fte r bag received the last stitch un
til scores w ere piled up ready for
sh ip m e n t Closing tim e came, and the
woman sup erin ten d in g the m aking of
the bags counted those com pleted and
announced th a t If every one of the
w orkers could come early the next
m orning and work all day the beg»
would surely be finished In tim e for
shipping by evening. Tw o crestfallen
little girls, the little sisters, w ere w ait
ing for h e r a t th e door as she dw
Red Cross Dunnage Bag*.
"W e a re aw fully sorry, m a’am," an 14
the older of the two, “b u t we can’t
come back tom orrow . Tou see tom or
row we have to—” And, w ithout tin
lshing the sentence, she looked back
w istfully a t the pile of bags.
“It is too bad you can ’t come back,”
said the sup erin ten d en t, "but I want
to th an k you, and we all thank you,
fo r th e work you’r e done today. Tou
two have te e n a w onderful help, and
th a t pile of bags w ouldn't be nearly so
big if you had n ’t been here. Good
D igh t”
The next m orning when the su p e r
inten d en t cam e down to unlock th«
w orkroom s for the day she was asto n
ished to see the tw o little girls stan d
ing In th e cold by the locked door.
“Oh, I'm so glad to see you I” ah«
said. “I thought you said you couldn't
“Oh. we knew those Red C row bags
Just had to be finished fo r th e sol
d iers,” exclaim ed th e little one, with
glistening eyes, “and we got up at
th ree o’clock this m orning and got the
w ashing done early 1”

T hey’re a queer old set
T hey growl w hen its dry
T hey laugh when its wet.
T hey lay iu th e ir b ed ^
A nd sleep and snore
And Nevar get up
’Till half lutst four.
W hen th ey crawl from the quilts
And in to th e ir clothes
They are careful to notice
W hich way th e wind blows
N ext they drive from th e hills
A few bony, old cows
And w hen these are “ pum ped”
They feed th e old sows.
T hen to breakfast they go
And they cat and they eat
And swallow and gobble
W ith m anure on th eir feet.
A fter th a t to the factory
l’he whole bunch will go
One after th e other
In a eort of a row.
T here they talk and they talk
A bout—well—spiders and cheese
'Till th e poor, bony horses
G et weak in th e knees.
W hen the dinner bell rings
T hey clim b in th eir “ sh av ”
Fill a p w ith hot w ater
And old, stin k y whey.
Then they s ta rt off for hom e
At a poky old pace
Clean th e ir hands on th e towel
And go “ feed th eir face.”
From th en u n til n ight
Thev lay iu the sun
And dream and im agine
The work is all done.
Anq th e wom en, why bless you,
From sum m er till fall
And from fall until sum m er
Do n o thing at all.
W hen the few skinny Jerseys
Are pum ped for the n ig h t
And the pigs and th e chickens
Are all out of sight,
They clim b in th eir " T in Lizzies”
A nd go rid in ’ a ro u n ’
Som etim es even as far
As Cloverdale Town.
The m en are all “ dad s”
And the women are croonv,
The children are “ kids”
And th e young folks are spooney.
They have a Red Cross
A nd a grange of some “ class,”
Goat w ent on a ta n trim
And fell through th a t glass.
Down at th e G range
They sweep and they eat,
The rest of th e tim e
Talk “ su b stitu te w h eat.”
Such a lot of old stuff
T h ev sew up at Red Caoss,
M ake everything wrong,
To be “ rip p ed ” by the boss.
The sock* th a t they m ake
Fit a uiati wi t h the g"U t,
And all th e pajam as
Are made inside out.
W hen of sew ing th e y ’re weary
A nd work seem s to lag
H eads get together
And they chew the old rag
This Red Cross and G range
G et mixed in great style,
One can ’t tell which is which
Only once in a while.
Thev use the sam e cups
And organ and spoons,
T hey eat th e sam e grub
And use th e sem e room s.
They sing the same song
And salute th e sam e nag
And both clean th e ir cups
One the sam e d irty rag.
Now Unce Sam
G ot onto th is bunch.
H e pulled down his w hiskers
A nd "got him a h u n c h .”
To tu rn up the tim e
And save davlight not fled
So he ordered th e bloom iug
Old clocks set ahead.
Now the cheeeem aker, he,
G ets up by the moon
And the voung folks find tim e
Ir. the d aylight to "sp o o n .”
The kids get to school
At eight—sakes alive
We dine a t eleven,
H ave supper at five.
I t stirred up th e men
Like bees in a hive
So one day lately
Thev "h a d a big d riv e .”
“ W ill“ got up at th ree
W ill P enter at four
Dad P o rter slept all n ig h t
W ith his hand on th e doer.
All ready to s ta rt
And do O rctow n’s p a rt
To get a full quota
R ight a t th a sta rt.
T he m om entum th ey got
Sent them "o v er th e to p ”
And th en th ey kept going
They just couldn’t stop.
“ Com prenez-vous tran caas”
Or is it “ Cum T n x ”
Even Four T housand
E ig h t hundred bucks.
Then th e women sat up
Took notice and sai-J
