ESSAY ON A COW A cow is an animal with four legs on the under side, and is born when very young Cso is her calfj. A cow is useful in two ways. It gives milk. The milk is good to drink. Also white. So is the left hind foot, except on brown cows, and theirs are black. A cow has ears that wiggle on hinges. So does her tail. A cow is bigger than a calf, but not so big as an elephant. Cows are made small so they can get into the barn when no one is looking. Some cows are black and others hook. Cows have horns but they canlt blow them. To freeze cows, milk you use ordinary cold ice. Cows' milk straight is too strong, therefore they always dilute it at the well. All cows give milk and butter, but no eggs. A cow has a tail also which hangs by one end, and swings to and fro-mostly fro. A dead cow will not hurt you. Neither will a live one after it is dead. That is all there is about a cow.

Paw: Well, the money you lend represents capital, and getting it back represents labor, my son. Pa, what's a post graduate? Paw: A fellow who graduates from one of the correspondence schools, I suppose. Gosh He grasped her roughly by the wrist and drew her forward. She was deathly pale. Her free arm dangled helplessly at her side. Her very purity was transparent, but she was stiff, unyielding. He drew her gently to himself, his hand sought her fluttering throat. She broke. She yielded. That white breast was finally resting upon his own. Their arms were entwined. "Thank God!" he said, "that I sent you to the laundry yesterday-else I'd be wearing a dirty shirt now." l'Willie," said his mother, "I wish you would run across the street and see how old Mrs. Brown is this morning." "Yes'm," replied Willie, and a few min- utes later he returned and reported: "Mrs. Brown says it's none of your busi- ness how old she is." A maiden lady of uncertain age became very indignant when the census taker asked how old she was. Did you see the girls next door, she asked, the Hill Twins. "Certainly," replied the man. "And did they tell you their age?" "Yes," "Well," she snapped, "I am just as old as they are." "Oh, very well," said the census man. And he wrote in his book, "Sarah Stokes, as old as the Hills."

A BROADCASTING RECIPE This is the story of a young bride who asked her husband to copy off a radio recipe' she wanted. He did his best but got two stations at once, one of which was broad- casting the morning exercises and the other the recipe. This is what he took down: Hands on hips, place one cup of flour on the shoulders, raise knees and depress toes and mix thoroughly in one-half cup milk. Repeat six times. Inhale quickly one-half teaspoon of baking powder, lower the legs and mash two hard-boiled eggs in a sieve. Exhale, breathe naturally, and sift in a bowl. Attention! Lie flat on floor and roll the white of an egg backward and forward until it comes to a boil. In ten minutes remove from fire, and rub smartly with a rough towel. Breathe naturally, dress in warm flannels and serve with soup. AS THEY WOULD SAY IT NOW Samson: "I'm strong for you, kid."
