PROVING THE PUNCH
Skids You think -his story has a
al punch to it?
Skittles Sure thing! You ought
. -to have seen the way it put me to
new york. a nice yung feller i
know got an awful wallop, up to his
best girl's house the uther nite
he is one of these guys that think
pretty well of hisself , and he thought
he was making an awful hit with thig
skirt and her whole famely
as a matter of fact, he ain't strong
with nobody except the girl herself
the old folks have got him sized up
all rite, and they've got about as
much use for him as they would have
for a poisoned cheese
so when the yung feller asked the
girl to marry him, she said, well,
frank, ime willing, but ime afrade pa
will put up an awful holler
why, says frank, the uther nite i
was in the next rom and i herd your
pa telling your ma what a lot he
thinks of me
ha, ha, ansers the gerl, you don't
know pa i
he was just handing that out to
ma to aggravate her
he likes to kid her more than any
thing on erth, and every time he says
anything decent about you, she gets
madder than blazes
, frank still thinks pretty well of the
gerl, but he aint exackly sure whether
he wants to marry into her family or
"My dear," the little 'girl's mother
said, "don't you think you're getting
too old to play with boys?"
The little girl frowned in scornful
astonishment. "Why, no, mamma,"
she cried. "The older -I get the betr
ter I like 'em,"
