We take from Hon. lloke Smith's At?

one of Sam Jones' announcements of "fa
collection, the result of which is usually
placed at the disposal of Mr. Jones:
'? 'Now, brethren,' said Mr. Jones,
comes that uhiouitioiu, inevitable collec?

you fellows seem to prefer to give
broken doses You seem to be dealing
in homeopathy instead of allopathy.
Som? of you follows give a penny anil
