'AN AMUSING INCIDENT
A man was walking through
Westminster recently when he
perceived, just ahead of him, an
acquaintance whose handkerchief
was sticking out of His- pocket.
Seized with a brilliant idea, he
quickened his pace, and stepping
up just behind his friend with
drew the handkerchief altogether,
without the owner being in the
least aware of what had taken
He was just about to address
him and call his attention to what
he had done when he felt a tap on
the arm, and, half turning, con
fronted a quiet, gentlemanly
looking man, who returned to the
man his own purse, handkerchief
and a bunch of keys, and at the
same time saying:
"I beg your pardon. I didn't
know you were one of us."
In a certain quarter of Liver
pool where there are a number of
hotels and cheap restaurants, one
enterprising concern has display
ed in great illuminated lettersT
"Open All Night." Next to it was
a restaurant bearing the sign :
"We Never Close."
Third in order was a Chinese
laundry in a little, low-framed,
tumbledown hovel, and upon the
front of this building was the
sign : "Me wakee, too."
Teacher Now, remember that
in order to become a proficient
vocalist you must have patience,
Miss Flipkins Yes ; and so must
my next-door neighbors.
