Why This Thusness

We saw old men yesterday at the base ball game who sat in the hot sunshine for two solid hours and yelled at every opportunity, who would melt into a jelly in half that time if they had to manage a hoe-handle in a potato patch. By their side sat some younger men, who were none the less interested, who would drop dead in their tracks if they had to do a whole hour's work in the corn field. There were also a lot of sweet young ladies, who did not seem to know that it was even warm, who would faint at the idea of cooking a meals victuals or washing the dishes afterward. That base ball game is a great business anyway. (Source: Madisonville Hustler, Fri., July 26, 1895)
