THE MAX WANTED
Never was there such a clamor for
the man who knows his trade!
Whether with a pen or hammer,
w hether with a brush or spade he's
equipped, the world demands him,
calls upon him for his skiil. and on
pay day gladly hands him rolls of
roubles from its till. Little boots it
vhat his trade Is, building bridges,
shoeing mules—men will come from
Cork to Cadiz to engage him and his
tools. All the world is busy hunting
for the workman who's supreme,
whether he is best at punting or at
davoring ice cream.
Up and down the land are treading
men who find this world a frost, toil-
ing on for board and bedding, in an
age of hustling lost. "We have never
bad fair chances, Fortune ever used
us sore," they complain, as age ad-
\ ances, and the poorhouse lies before.
Handy men we are," they mutter,
masters of a dozen trades, yet we
an't earn bread and butter, much
1 ss jams and marmalades. When we
i ok a situation, stern employers cry
..gain: "Cha3e yourselves! This
u eary nation crowded is with handy
uien! Learn one thing and learn it
iully, learn in something to excel,
i .en you'll find this old world bully—
iL will please you passing well!" Thus
i eply the stern employers when for
, ork we sadly plead, saying we are
farmers, sawyerg, tinkers, tailors gone
to seed. So we sing our doleful cho-
rus as adown the world we wind, for
t he poorhouse lies before us, and th^
tree lunch lies behind."
While this tragedy unfolding
in each corner of the land,^pien of
sUill are still beholding chances rise
011 every hand; men who learned one
thing and learned it u^ and down and
to and fro, got reward because they
earned it—men who study, men who
know, if you're raising sweet pota-
toes, see that they're of special
worth; if you're shoeing dromedaries,
shoe the brutes with all"your might;
if you're peddling trained canaries,
let your birds he out of sight. What-
soevfer you are doing, do it well and
with a will, and you'll find the world
pursuing, offering to buy your skill.
