Vereins Kirche. Fredericksburg, Texas.
The former White Elephant Saloon, built in 1888. Downtown Frederickburg.
White Oak School, circa 1920. On the grounds of the Pioneer Museum.

Chalkboard with German phrase. Something about work…

My German is rusty, but I think the saying means "Work makes living better, laziness weakens the limbs." The word "süβ" stumps me, though
süß is sweet.
Work makes life sweet, laziness weakens the limbs.
