Walt Mason's Prose Rhymes were read daily by approximately ten million readers. These are "prose rhymes" on daily life, current and historical events, ideas and objects-almost anything of interest to him-in a folksy way. For example, on the "wireless [the telegraph]:" "We can only pause in wonder, as we read these thrilling tales.We can only take our lids [hats] off to the noble master mind that achieved this latest triumph over fog and wave and wind. Yet, to show appreciation, we might buy some shares of stock in the Wireless Corporation office.With each share we'll get a picture of a hero." On good deeds and worldly goods: "There are better things than boodle on this little ball of mud."
