Uncle Sam’s Larder

November 12, 2012

EVERY State has its favorite dish, for which it has gained culinary fame. No other country in the world produces a greater variety of food than the United States. If your appetite is jaded, if it demands something different, then consult the map for some new ideas. A study of this map will be a revelation of the remarkable resources of Uncle Sam’s larder.

A Little Life

(Detroit News.)
A little house to keep,
A little floor to sweep.

A little meal to make,
A little sweet to bake.

A little friend to know,
A little flower to grow.

A little bird to sing,
A little hand to cling.

A little child’s caress,
A little life to bless.

A little grief and pain,
A little cheer again.

A little fleeting day,
A little prayer to say,

A little house to keep,
Life has no joy as deep.
