is no doubt up on 'Pigs is Pigs,'' a subscriber writes, but he is 'way off on Susie Adams." He continues: Butler says it was a little girl in Billings, Montana, who came home from school and announced: 'I learned a new memory gem to-day "Susan Adams forgets Susan Adams." This possibly may have occurred at Billings, Montana, but the fact is it did occur at my house in Toledo, Ohio, and the little girl is my granddaughter, now a young woman. Only she said Susie Adams, not Susan Adams, which of course was much 'Enthusiasm begets enthusiasm."" Other contestants for the honor of originating this misapprehension are now entitled to be heard.


Examples of humor from comic weeklies of widely different regions: "London Opinion:"

"No. No oysters, lady, only cockles and whelks. We only 'as oysters when there's a R in the month." "R in the month? And 'ow do you spell Orgust?"

"Le Rire" (Paris):

"Is she making a rich marriage?" "I should say so; he is a butcher who has been arrested three times for profiteering."

"Numero" (Turin, Italy):

Traveler "It's a nuisance-these trains are always late." Resourceful Conductor-"But, my dear sir, what would be the use of the waiting-rooms if they were on time?"

"Looker-On" (Calcutta, India):

The Wife-"It's disgraceful, John, to come home at such an hour, and I don't know how you can expect me to believe such an absurd excuse." The Husband-"Well, my dear, that'sh the tale I've made up and that'sh what I'm jolly well going to stick to."

"William Shakespeare was born in 1776.
The place of his birth is uncertain; some
say Strassburg, some Strafford, some
stratford von a von. Most probably he
was born in the first or the last, since
he was the greatest German poet. There
are other authorities on file, however,
who believe he was not the greatest Ger-
man poet, but that he was first discov-
ered by the Germans to be the greatest
poet. However this may be, it is certain
he was the son of the village black-
smith, the ninth son of honest parents.
Among his best known plays are
"The Taming of the Shrewd,' 'Juliet
Cæsar,' 'The Hurricane.'... He created
some wonderful characters like the
wired sisters in Macbeth and the Aërial
by which her master spoke over long
distances in another play."

The first and last parts of the book ought to have been left out, for they are Scripturally, and therefore scientifically, unsound. The middle part we have been reading in reliable encyclopædias. Therefore we are saving the cost of the book for other and more useful Christmas gifts.

At the breakfast table, says "Harper's Magazine" under the caption "History's Slow Advance," Mary called her mother's attention to a hole in one of the napkins. "Yes," acknowledged her mother, "we do need new table linen. I have bought none since before the war." Instantly the face of Odessa, the colored maid from Alabama, became a study in astonishment. She eyed her mistress a moment thus. Then comprehension dawned and her face relaxed. "Oh," she said, "you mean d' last wah!"

The word vitamin, according to the colyumist of the Glasgow, Montana, "Democrat," "is pronounced vit like fit, a like the middle one in Arkansas, and min like Min, a girl's name. The accent is on the vit. It is a thing that is found in food like calories only much more fatal if they ain't any. . . . If a fellow goes and eats say eggs, cheese, whole wheat, lean meat, spinach, and lettuce, he has got hisself well fixed with vitamins and need have no fear. Vitamins are not so expensive as calories was when we was eating them on account of the war but vitamins command fairly respectable prices."

Another colyumist, who gathers the "Gleanings" for the Ravenna, Nebraska, "News," prints this inquiry:

I'll try to be solemn,

I'm neither a plagiarist nor a literary

Why don't they quote me in the fa-
mous Outlook,

In the "By the Way" column?
Perhaps the answer is that in this col-
umn we as a rule try not to be solemn.

many imitations of
