Not illustrated. 1916 Excerpt: ..."And they're welcome to all things else," he said, When the robbers came to rob him. OLD GRANNY DUSK OLD Granny Dusk, when the sun goes down, Here she comes into thish-yer town! Out o' the wet black woods an' swamps In she traipses an' trails an' tromps--With her old sunbonnet all floppy an' brown, An' her cluckety shoes, an' her old black gown, Here she comes into thish-yer town!

Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire! Can't you h'ist that winder higher? La! they've all got past like "scat!"... Night's as black as my old hat--And it's rainin', too, at that!... Wonder where their old fire's at! THE YOUNG OLD MAN VOLUNTARY BY ARTLESS "LITTLE BROTHER' MAMMA is a widow: There's only us three--Our pretty Mamma, little siste...
