AIN'T NATURE WONDERFUL!
Mr. Conductor, would you please
give me a transfer on the jellyroll
Rowf! Rowf! Why didn't yuh ask
for It -when yuh got on?
Gosh, we ought to shoot ourselves
to accommodate the bear. Notice
the way he almost jerks the roof
down when he rings the bell and
tries to unhook the back platform

will only give me a chance. You
ought to hear me say: 'Yes, mother,
you let me go wherever I want to.' "

ON A HOT DAY .
"What are you hollerin' at the ice
"Want to make him mad," replied
the youngster with defiant red hair.
"I want to make him mad so's he'll
throw something at me."
"So he'll throw something!"
"Yes. He hasn't anything to-throw
but a chunk of ice an' that's what
