THE ONLY WAY
Howler I made quite an impres
sion with my voice last night
Hinkley What did you do? Sing
into a phonograph sqmewhere?
n. y. even in the msurence bisniss
there is sumtimes some fun
a little guy which is adjuster for a
fire insurence cumpany went over in
jersey the uther day to look at a bUd
ing which had been scorched pretty
he went all over the place very
cairfuHy, and when he got through
the feller that owned the hflding said
he would hke to have his opinion as
to what caused the fire
i aint exackly certen, says the ad
juster, but i am inclined to think
probly it was friction
friction, says the man, what do you
mean friction, what kind of friction
could of caused this fire
well, ansers the adjuster, there is a
kind of friction we sumtimes run
acrost that comes from rubbing a ten
thousend doller policy an a five thous
and dollar bflding.
after the guy had thought it over
for a cuppel of minutes he claimed he
was being insulted, and got as mad as
"How much a pound are your sau
sages?" "Der brice has gone up," replied
the proprietor. "I vifl haf to sharge
you twenty-five cents,"
"Nonsense," said the woman.
"Why I can get them at Shaubaum's
for twenty cents."
"Veil, madam, vy don't you do so?"
".Don't be impudent sir. He was
out of them.
"Ah, veil," replied the man, smil
ing, "ef I vas out of dem I vood let
you haf dem for twenty cents, too."
