Ile didn't bring the engalgement
ring to her the night he had prom
ised, because he was out walking
with another girl, and the engaged
girl had heard of it. So the first
thing she did wlen lie called on
her the next evening, was to take
him by the left ear and shake him
about at a painlfll rate.
'What's that ?' he yelled.
'T'hat , sir-, is the eng)agremlent
rinr-and it will ring just the very
same way every time I healr of you
w~alking out with another girl.'
