An Old Saw Refiled

AN OLD SAW REFILED.

Money makes the mare go;
How jolly ’tis to ride
A rattling pace, firm ground below,
And pleasure by your side!

But some where back tow slaves, slack!
Reeking with stable soil,
Have fed the hack and smoothed the track —
Economy and Toil.

— Julia Boynton Green, Smart Set.

The Daily Northern (Oshkosh, Wisconsin) Apr 29, 1902
