MADE A Hit
A comedian in a Paris theater re
cently made a great hit out of a pain
ful incident. While indulging in a bit
of horse-play on the stage he ac
cidentally struck his head violently
against one of the pillars on the
stage. On hearing the thud, every
body uttered a cry.
"No great harm done," said he.
"Just hand me a towel, a glass of
water and a salt-cellar."
These were brought, and he sat
down, folded the towel in the form of
a bandage, dipped it in the glass, and
emptied the salt-cellar on the wet
part. Having thus prepared a com
press, according to prescription, and
when everybody expected he would
apply it to his forehead he gravely
arose and tied it round the pillar.
