TOMMY BROWN AGAIN
The referee's whistle had blown for
the last time. The match was over,
and immediately the crowd of specta
tors began to swarm around the
small gate which was the only exit
from the football grpund.
Robert Peeler, posted more or less
securely near the gate, endeavored to
restrain the crowd with 'Tass on,

rant. On the table was a bowl of
mustard and Pat took a big spoon
ful and put it into his mouth. The
tears began to roll down his cheeks.
"Pat what are you crying for?"
"I just remembered," said Pat
"that exactly a year ago today me
old uncle was hung in Ireland."
Mike by this time had a spoonful
of mustard in his mouth and the tears
began to roll down his cheeks, too.
"What are you crying forj'Mike?"
"Because you were not hung wii
your uncle," gasped Mike. Fuel
