Advice for Those About to Bout
Advice for Those About to Bout.
At this period of the yearlings it is not out of place to offer a little advice to those about to “bout.” Advice costs nothing, which makes it so popular as a gift. Well, take it or leave it. Here goes:
Let not your right hand know what your left hand is taking.
A round feed equals any number of square meals-and figures can't lie.
One swallow does not make a Christmas.
Many friends few helpings.
A bob in the hand is worth two in the pudding.
No man is a hero to his wallet.
Christmas time is a swell time and all swell that ends swell.
