Harsh all P. Wilder Pulls Out a Few Stories
From His Pouch.
"It's difficult, " said that jolly little jest
er. Marshall P. Wilder, in a recent etiat,
"to string together coherently new jests
and jokes in a formal interview. Humor
ous efforts, as you know, do not strike any
two people in just the same way. Much
denends noon the occasion toTriMlcf nlir.
i fill turn of words erTerriv-e eirieeirtl 1 v rr
an audience. For instance, last year in
Flint, Mich., I gave vent to a spontaneous
remark that c.Mcited more applause than
anything else I said during the evening.
Just as I was approaching the footlights
to bi ;rin my monologue the electrie lights
went out and left the house in total dark
ness. Pausing a few seconds for the return
of the light which very dismally failed to
give us illumination, I said: '.Ladies and
gentlemen, this is a terrible predicament;
for me. I fear you will be unable to see
my jokes.' But the audience very prompt
ly saw that one and gave me a warm wel
come. Before they had finished their
handclappinfr and laughter the electric
lights again were all in harmonious opera
tion. Speaking of the difference between
English and American humor, here is an
anecdote which perfectly illustrates it. An
Englishman, a new arrival in New York,
meets an American friend on the street
and says, 'How do you feel, old chap?'
'Outof sight,' replies the American. 'And
what may that really mean, y'ktiow?' in
quires the puzzled Britisher. The Ameri
can enters into a labored explanation of
the cisatlantic idiom, whereupon the
gentleman from London, still somewhat
puzzled, but evidently satisfied, exclaims,
'Very droll and clevah, don't y'know.' A
few days later some one asks the English
man how he feels by way of greeting, and
this is his response: 'Pon my word, old
chap, you cawn't see me, y'know.'
"But, after all, " continued Mr. Wilder,
"the English are very loyal to their
friends. Fortunately in England I have
a number of admirers. When I was last
over there, I met one of them who said to
ine in a most confidential way, 'Mr. Wild
er, those were very funny things you told
us last year.' Ycu see, it takes about a.
year for a good American joke or anecdote
to germinate ia English soil and bear any
kind of fruit."
At this point I asked him whence he
derived his best appreciated jokes. Mr.
Wilder, alter a thoughtful pause, replied:
"From everyday life. To illustrate: I saw
two Irishmen on a Broadway cable car
yesterday. One says to the other: 'Mike,
your clothes look purtty tough and seedy.
Why don't you get a dacent suit of
" 'Well,' answers Mike, with almost a
pompous confidence in his explanation,
'there's not a tailor in Harlem that kin
measure me, I'm that ticklish.'
"Another illustration: One Irishman,
'I bear you've had the grip bad.' Another
Irishman, 'Y"is, a bout a month ago.' "Ah,
Pat, the grip is a terrible disease. It's the
only thing you're sick with after you're
"An Irishman with only one leg was
goii along the street when he met a
friend of his own nationality. 'What,'
says the friend, 'you've lost a leg, eh?'
'Yes,' said thu other despondently. 'Well,'
observed the friend, 'my poor man, you
won't miss it these hard times.'
'Here is another cable car incident that
I witnessed recently: A man was indulg
ing in profanity in the car when there en
tered a lady and her husband. The latter,
taking umbrage at the blasphemer, said,
'See here, you mustn't swear before my
wife,' whereupon the blasphemer an
swered, 'Excuse me, I didn't know your
wife wanted to swear.'
"This is a pretty good one: A young
darky, indulging in hitting his thumb
with a hammer every few seconds, was
asked what he was doing that for. His
philosophical reply was, 'Kase it feels ao
good when I stop.'
Here is another: A man was carrying a
disreputable looking dog into an express
office when an inquisitive policeman ask
ed where the canine was bound for.
Promptly came the answer: "He don't
know, and I'm d dif I do. He's chewed
up his tag. "
Mr. Wilder's concluding story before re
viving another visitor he attributed to
Mr. Henry E. Dixey and related substan
tially as follows: Several old chaps were
sitting around the big stove in a rural
barroom telling stories and so on when
another old chap of much the same type
as themselves hobbled in. t-eeing no va-
cant chair, he finally commissioned the ;

shed a dozen oysters on the half shell. The
landlord made haste to obey the curious
order, and the other half dozen old codgers
rose en masse and passed out of the room
to witness the unheard of exhibition. In
the meantime the old fellow who had giv
en the unusul order planted himself in
the most comfortable chair in front of the
stove and was pleasantly meditating when
the old chaps returned, preceded by the
landlord, who said, ''Your horse won't
cat them oysters, boss."
''Well, bring them to me then," said
the stranger, relapsing into his cheerful
reverie, unmindful of the senile worthies
of the village who were returning to the
warmth cf the stove to find one of the
chairs fully occupied. Trufh.
