Heard and Seen: TAIL LIGHTS ON COWS AND CALVES/EARLY MORNING.

Bill Price
Washington Times-Herald
December 31, 1922


A Column FROM and FOR Everybody

Dear Bill: A Fresno, Cal., farmer failed to hang a tail light on one of his calves; it strayed into the road; a motorist collided with it, and sued the farmer for $229 damages to his car. He insists that stock should obey traffic laws. Maybe the Maryland legislature will compel Maryland farmers to hang tail lights on their old mules, as well as cows and calves. Nearly every Washington motorist can recall finding Maryland stock standing peacefully in the roads, both day and night, quite unconcerned about approaching vehicles.

MOTORIST.




EARLY MORNING.

IN THE COUNTRY—

At 4 o'clock the noisy cock
Booms forth a lusty crow,
To tell each hen and all the men
To work they soon must go.

The horses neigh for oats and hay
The pigs begin to squeal
The cattle low to let you know
That they too want a meal.

IN THE CITY—

The rattling car keeps up its jar
From bedtime till it's light.
You try your best to get some rest,
While mad enough to fight.

Sam Simple.
