HE U6ED A TACK. How Undertaker Made Sure the Wig Would Stick. As the story goes, an Irish under taker was laying out the deceased hus band of a weeping Hibernian widow. The corpse wore a wig, and it was very difficult to induce it to stay on straight, as wigs ought always to do, even if they don't. The bereaved widow was called in to assist. "Go an' git me a pot of glue, Mrs. McGov- ern," said the undertaker, "so that I may keep bis wig where it belongs." Mrs. MocGovern set out after the sticking material, and after a time she returned. "Here is the glue for ye," she said with a sigh. "Mrs. McOovern, you kin take back the mucilage," said the undertaker "the difficulty Is fixed. I used a tack." .-Buffalo Times.
