I figured It out that way, and stood
That evening finds mo In the pnrlor

mean. When a guy reaches that con
dition whoro ho gives himself tho
careful glance and says, "Geo! I got

bet there's only, ono parlor In tho
world for him.
I'm sitting on the sofa with ono mitt

Anyway, after tho bell rings I says
to my lady friend, "If you'll tease a

"Oh, how lovely!" aayB my lady

What does It mean In English?" H
It was up to mo to niako good. B
"It means," I says, "that Sara is B

"It Isn't poetical," I says, "but It's H
