were there, too, rather tired and

I've found three!"
"Sec, there, now," said Uncle
Jacob, "I expected you would.
It's an odd thing I forgot to
comment on this before that the
folks who go looking for four-leaved

An amusing reply was given by
one of the pupils. A teacher had
told the class of the wonderful
voyage of Columbus and how he
insisted on continuing the voyage
after the other men were
clamoring to return. Then she
asked: "Who was Columbus?"
with the view of hearing how
well thev had followed her talk.
One little hand went up.
"Well, Johnny, who was he?"
asked the teacher.
"Columbus was the gem of the
ocean," was the answer.
Oh, yes, there will be plenty of

Perhaps some would like an old
style of preparing dandelions,
watercress and the outside green
