HIS LAMB WAS THERE.
Last month a Cleveland travel
ing man was married and was
given a month's vacation. He and
his bride have been spending their
honeymoon in a quiet summer re
sort. The other evening, as they en
tered the diningroom and sat
down, as usual, in a secluded cor
ner, the young husband noticed a
very good customer at a table
"Say, dearest," he whispered,
"there's Mr. Jones over there.
You won't mind if I go over and
dine with him, will you? Think
how fine it will be if I got back
from my wedding trip with a
smashing big order."
The little bride agreed, rather
ruefully. Her traveling man hur
ried over to Jones, shook hands
with hirh, and ordered his dinner,
which included roast lamb. Then
he began to talk business.
He was so earnest about it that
he didn't notice when the waiter
removed his meat dishes and
placed A dessert before him. Then
suddenly he looked down at his
plate and exclaimed:
"Why, where's my lamb?"
A little voice over in the corner
piped out: "Here I am, dear!"
