Then you don't think I practice
what I preach, eh? queried the
minister in talking with one of the
deacons at a meeting.
."No, sir, I don't," replied the
deacon. You've been preaching on
the subject of resignation for two
years an'ye haven't resigned yet."
Irritating noises can be avoided by
taking some old felt hats, cutting out
from these disks about the size of a
quarter and securely fastening them
to the bottoms of the legs of all chairs,
tables and other movable articles not
provided with casters. This also pre
vents the scratching of polished floors.
