From The Topeka State Journal, May 31, 1913. By Roy K. Moulton. The office boy’s grandmother dies At least three times a week; The bookkeeper develops ills Of which he’s apt to speak. The ribbon clerk abruptly jumps His job at 3 p. m. He says his kids have got the mumps And he must go to them. The boss does not feel well himself, And thinks he needs fresh air; He goes out to the baseball park And finds his help all there.
