through mudholes, up bill, down bill,

in Shakespeare's comedy of "A Mid

"Over bill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough briar,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere."
As we journeyed we saw a corn field
that looked like Bill Nye's 40-acre farm
of cliff and, accosting a passer-by, asked
hlra how they cultivated it. "Well," be
said "When tbev ret ready to plant it

to death with my finger nails as some
others did. I did not need any guard
