Hardware, Plumbing and... Tinning Have Your Plumbing Done ByA PLUMBER POET J. A. Spitz of New York is responsible for the following' verses intended to show that cheap plumbing is the most expensive. Mr. Spite prints it on the back of his business card:He smiles a smile of self content, He beat the plumber down;He's going- to have his plumbing done The cheapest in the town.He thought himself a corker, And winked the other eye;But come to think it over now He wasn't quite so fly.They put poultice on his stomach, They put ice bags on his head,The doctor and the nurse he had Just kept him in his bed.The doctor said it's typhoid, With just a scarlet rash;And thought it quite advisable To bleed him for his cash.And the patient convalescent,Thinks himself an ass, He sees too late that plumbing cheapBrings ills from sewer gas.WOOD-SULLIVAN CO.INCORPORATED NOV. 6, 1905238 MAIN STREET GOLDFIELD, NEVADA"THE BANK"NIXON BLOCKC.H.
