! The time of the year is approaching
l when the average man begins telling
j how he used to shovel paths through
eight I'eet of snow at four o'clock on
r mornings when the thermometer reg-
| lstered so far below zero that the
mercury rattled Around In the bulb
t like a mustard seed.
That is the sort of man who will
go out the first heavy snow and show
his family how to clean the walks. He
will have a nice new dollar snow
i shovel sent up from the store, and
I will begin preparations by slipping
, and falling down the front steps. Dur-
I ing his slide several bushels of snow
j w ill surreptitiously become inserted
| between his shirt and his undershirt,
j Liow in the name of time it gets there
] is a mystery as deep as the cause of
j the aurora borealis or the production
ol' radium, but the fact remains I hat
it gets there. The man will overlook
j it for the moment, however, and be-
J gin lossing great shovelfuls of snow
to right and left, and he will be work
inj "ke a steam plow when the old
man who lives upstreet and who has
a bad temper and rheumatism will
happen along and get forty pounds of
snow in the face. After the ensuing
argument the average man will re-
sume operations. By and by his back
will begin to ache, his neck to be stiff
and sore and his arms to feel as
numb as though they had been para-
lyzed since he was ten years of age.
But he will stick to it, for his wife
and children will be watching pa from
the window, and the baby will be
pounding the window pane with its
sticky fingers and goo-going glee-
At last, after years and years of
lifting and shoveling, the walks will
be cleaned, and the man will straight-
en up painfully and start to the back
door, when his wife will open the
front door and cry:
"You left a little bit of snow be-
hind the horseblock, dear!"
