Simple But Insuperable Reason Why

be One fancies that few types of men,
can, from time to time, have afforded
te royalty more amusement of a quiet
ill sort than provincial mayors of Eng
is. land. "From the Foreland to Pen
ea zance," by Cldve Holland, contains the
story of a mayor of Weymouth who,
he during one of the visits of King
de George to the town, was destined to
;ie afford "comic relier' to a ceremony of
cc: some importance.
les The' occasion was the presentation
of an address of welcome to the king,
ike and we are told that the mayor, on ap
the proaching to present it, to the aston
in ishment and dismay of all, instead of
to kneeling, as he had been told to do,
gsts seized the queen's hand to shake It
iers as he might that of any other lady..
Col. Owynne, the master of the cere
monies, hurriedly told him of the
the faux pas, saying: "You should have
hail kneeled, sir."
Lin "Sir, I cannot," was the reply.
"Everybody does, sir," hotly asserted
The mayor grew red, and evidently
much upset, exclaimed: "Confound it,
R. sir, but I've got a wooden leg!"
