Who is the owner of the cow, where is the cow put out to grass, that provides the milk of human kindness; and does the calf get the best part of the milk, judging by the amount of kindness one receives? Did the horseman who “scoured the plain” use soap? What does this “continual feast” that a contented mind is said to enjoy consist of? When a man, through being pressed, eats more dinner than he wants, may he not be said to bo stuffed with forced—meat? If it takes nine tailors to make a man, how many sailors does it take to make a buoy? Do the “roots of words” produce “flowers of speech?” Who can “smell a rat” the quickest, the man who knows the most, or the man who has the most nose? Rackward and Forward.
