Voici le Wheeze:
A woman who was too economical
to subscribe for her home paper sent
her little son to borrow the copy
taken by their neighbor. In his
haste the boy ran over a four-dollar
stand of bees and in ten minutes
looked like a warty summer squash.
His cries reached his father, who ran
to his assistance, and failing to notice
a barbed wire fence ran into it,
breaking it down, cutting a handful
of flesh from his anatomy and ruin
ing a fiv'a-dollar pair of pants. The
old cow took advantage of the gap in
the fence and got into the cornfield
and killed herslf eating corn. Hear
ing the racket, the mother ran, up
set a four-gallon churn of rich cream
into a basket of kittens, drowning
the whole litter. In her hurry she
dropoed and broke, past all hope of
m'nding, a twenty-five dollar set of
false teeth. The baby, left alone,
crawlW through the spilled cream
and into the parlor, ruining a twen
ty-dollar carpet. Juring the excite
ment the eldest daughter ran away
with the .hired man, the dog broke
up eleven setting hens, and the calves
got out and chewed the tails of four
