The Two Boot-Blacks. 1. A day or two ago, during a lull in business, two little bootblacks, one white and one black, were standing on the street corner doing nothing, when the white boot-black agreed to black the black boot-black's boots. The black boot-black was, of course, willing to have his boots blacked by his fellow boot black, and the boot-black who had agreed to black the black boot-black's boots went to work.
2. When the boot-black had blacked one of the black bootblack's boots till it shone in a manner that would make any boot-black proud, this boot-black who had agreed to black the black boot-black's boots refused to black the other boot of the black boot-black until the black boot-black, who had consented to have the white boot-black black his boots, should add five cents to the amount the white boot-black had made blacking other men's boots. This the boot-black whose boot had been blacked refused to do, saying it was good enough for a black boot-black to have one boot blacked, and he didn't care whether the boot that the boot-black hadn't blacked was blacked or not.
3. This made the boot-black who had blacked the black bootblack's boot as angry as a boot-black often gets, and he vented his black wrath by spitting upon the blacked boot of the black boot-black. This roused the latent passions of the black boot-black, and he proceded to boot the white boot-black with the boot which the white boot-black bad blacked. A fight ensued, in which the white boot-black who had refused to black the unblacked boot of the black bootblack, blacked the black boot-black's visionary organ, and in which the black boot-black wore all the blacking off his blacked boot in booting the white boot-black.
