THE FUNNY SIDE'S FUNNY STORIES
A stranger once going through an Insane asylum came to a cell where there was a man praying to a chair. The stranger asked the guard why this man did this. He replied he was engaged to be married to a young - lady and about a week before the marriage the woman threw him down and. ran off and married another man. The next cell they came to was a man, hitting his head against the wall. The stranger asked the guard: "Why is this man doing that?" The guard said: "That is the man that married the woman." - . \u0084 - Joseph w. post. 629 College street, Springfield, Mo. • Mike—An' did yez hear it thoonder last noight, Pat?
