WHAT MOVED FM
A school teacher recently gave his
pupils a lecture on patriotism. He
pointed out the high motives which
moved the territorials to leave their
homes and fight for their country.
The school teacher noticed that
one boy did not pay attention to the
instruction, and a test question he
asked him:
"What motives took tne territorials
to the war?"
The boy was puzzled for a mo
ment; then, remembering the public
send-off of the local regiment at the
y railway station, he replied
'Locomotives, sir. ixmaon Tit-
Bits.

PROMPTED
The vicar was just about to give
out the banns of a marriage the other
Sunday when he discovered that he
could not find the book. However,
he began groping meanwhile for the
lost volume.
"I publish the banns of marriage
between between "
"Between the cushion and the seat,
sir," whispered the verger, hoarsely,
suddenly realizing what the vicar was
looking for.
