Dumbells of Business
OUT among the gnarled oaks of Squirrel Cove there buzzed a busy manufacturing plant. It had been established since Time wore a bib, and, as far back as History could recall, had been handed down from Whiskers to Whiskers without a break. The same old Superintendent with his chew of Fine Cut tucked away in a back-cavity, was always on hand each generation to bury the father and drill the son into the mysteries of Production and Distribution. Old Faithful used to love to take off his beaver cap and stroke the top of his glazed Summit while he told some eager visitor all about the industrial heirloom and his long and watchful connection with it. In the course of centuries the Concern had of course worked up some business around the County, but at no time did there ever occur what you would call a Sensational Increase in trade. In fact, careful scrutiny revealed nothing in the whole town that could be associated with a sensation of any kind.
