Monday for the first time, offensive odors came from the mud and slime that was shovelled into the streets by householders and storekeepers. In this work men, women and children were engaged. Wives of prominent citizens were seen with shovel and hoe, some of them wearing their husbands' trousers and rubber boots, doing as best they could the work of men.

If he'll go with us, I'm strong enough why, I shovelled snow on the special to Bismarck that's how they let me ride and skating home I didn't stop to rest " "Yes, yes, my boy, we know." "I walked and walked straps broke I forgot to tell you that's why I had to. But it didn't do any good it didn't do any good!

The engine lurched and shook and rattled, and as they shot under a bridge the engine seemed to shout in her ears. The fireman shovelled on coals. Bobbie unrolled the brown paper and disclosed the toy engine. "I thought," she said wistfully, "that perhaps you'd mend this for me because you're an engineer, you know."
