TWIN CITY TOWN
POST
Robert Freeman and Willie Davenport, currently featured at a
Minneapolis night club with their very neat floor show, put on a red-hot
show at the Apex last Sunday night and are due to repeat this Sunday.
Two nifty steppers, the Poole sisters, Dorothy and Gwendolyn, and
“Skippy” Mosby furnished the feminine interest. This “Skippy,” little,
cute and clever, has a rather colorful personality. Freeman and Daven
port, both clever comedians, furnish the comedy. Davenport’s jokes can
stand a little cleaning up.
The Rook Ganz bunch furnished the St. Paulites and those Minne
apolitans who like inter-city fun plenty of tantalizing rhythm last Sun
day afternoon. A packed house was
on hand at the Gopher lodge Rest.
The St. Paul Elks will again pre
sent the radio band on March 10.
Minneapolis Elks will continue to
hold open house every Saturday
night until...
The many times married former
Green Pastures chorister who
slipped into St. Paul last week and
kidnapped his baby from his wife,
has acted as only many predicted
when the pretty little Indian girl
married him several years ago.
Too bad!

TYPOGRAPHICAL ERROR
(Reprinted By Request)
As you say, “She may be empty,
but I’ll tell the world she’s
clean!”
But when the sheet is printed and
is out upon the mail,
On its way to the subscribers I
have never seen it fail—
In the center of the front page, in
a most conspicuous place,
Some typographical error fairly
kicks you in the face.
For the typographical error is a
slippery thing and shy,
You can hunt ’til you are dizzy,
but it somehow will get by,
Till the forms are off the press it
is strange how still it keeps,
It shrinks down into a corner and
it never stirs or peeps.
That typographical error too small
for human eyes.
Till the ink is on the paper, when
it grows to mountain size,
And you see that blasted error, far
as you could throw a dog,
Looming up in all its splendor, like
lighthouse in a fog!
That glaring blunder juts out like
an ulcerated tooth,
Where it dodged the eagle vision
of the napping comma sleuth.
Couvade
Couvade is the uh me given by
anthropologists to the custom prev
alent among some primitive races,
by which the father of a newly born
Infant makes a pretense of going
through the same experience as the
mother and lies up for a time, ab
stains from certain foods, etc., as
though he, too, were physically af
fected by the birth. The custom
has been observed by travelers In
Gniana and other parts of South
America, among some Afghan tribes,
in parts of China, Borneo, etc. It
was noted by the ancients as oc
curring in Corsica and among the
Celtiberians. Couvade is from the
French, couver, to hatch.
