KREMOUœiSSSS TWO THINGS NOT LOOKED FOR Even Stolid Englishman Saw the Hu> mor in One of Josh Billings' Famous Jokes. Andrew Carnegie told a good story at the expense of Matthew Arnold I d his "Autobiography." It seems that the English critic was not successful in his lectures in the United States, but he was anxious to learn, and lie asked how Josh Billings held his au dience. The American humorist re plied: "Well, you mustn't keep them laughing too long, or they will think you are laughing at them. After giv ing the audience amusement you must become earnest and play the serlou* role. For Instance, "There are two things in this life for which no man is ever prepared. Who will tell me what these are?" Finally some one cries out, 'Death.' 'Well, who give» me the other?' Many respond— wealth, happiness, strength, marriage, taxes. At last Josh begins solemnly; •None of you has given the second. There are two things on earth for which no man is ever prepared, and them's twins,' and the house shakes." Air. Arnold did also. Too many men who boast of being self-made seem to have been interrupt ed before the Job was finished.
