Jokes "Now, sir," inquired the bullying law- yer," "what is your business ?" "I'm in vaudeville, sir," was the prompt reply. "Isn't that rather a low calling?" sneered the lawyer. "Perhaps it is, sir," was the cool an- swer, "but you see it is so much more honest and decent and respectable than my father's that I am rather proud of it." "What did your father do?" "He was a lawyer, sir." She was a dear old lady who never let an opportunity pass to get some free med- ical advice, or to ask the doctor some questions which had nothing to do with the case in hand. On this occasion the doctor had called to treat her husband for some minor ailment. "Doctor," she said, "can you tell me why some people are born dumb?" "Why-ahem-certainly," replied the medical man. "It is due either to con- genital inhibition of the faculty of articu- lation, or to some anatomical deficiency in the organs of vocalizationf' "There, now," she remarked trium- phantly, glancing at her husband, "see what it is to have an education? I've asked Henry more than 100 times why it was and all he could say was, "Cause they are.' " The height of illegibility-a doctor's prescription written with a post office pen in the rumble seat of a second-hand car. Teacher: "Jane, who was Anne Bo- leyn?" jane: "A llatiron, sir." Teacher: "What do you mean?" jane: "Well, our history book says that 'Henry having disposed of Catherine, pressed his suit with Anne Boleynf " N "Heah, Rastus, is that quarter I bor- rowed from you two years ago." "Y'all might just as well keep yo' money. It ain't wuth two bits for me to change mah opinion 0' you." C "Next to a beautiful girl, what do you think is the most interesting thing in the world ?" "When I'm next to a beautiful girl, I'm not worrying about statistics." "B-e-d spells bed," said the teacher to her backward pupil. "Now do you under- stand, Tommy?" "Yes," said Tommy glibly. "Well, c-a-t spells cat, d-o-g spells dog, and b-e-d spells-what did I tell you b-e-d spells?" "I've forgotten, teacher," whispered Tommy, contritely. "Well, once more b-e-d spells what you sleep in. Now what is it?"' "My shirt!" Q Given: I love you. To prove: That you love me. Proof: 1. I love you. 2. Therefore, I am a lover. 3. All the world loves a lover. 4. You are all the world to me. 5. Therefore, you love me. Teacher: "What is the half of eight, Frank?" Frank: "Which way, teacher?" Teacher: "What do you mean?" Frank: "On top or sidewise?" Teacher: "What difference does it make?" Frank: "Well, the top half of eight is zero, but the half of eight sideways is three."

"Why does a clock run?" "You would too if you had ticks!" The subject before the class was, "The Cow." The teacher asked the class about the uses to which the parts of the dead animal were put, when it was brought out that the flesh was eaten, and from the hide leather for boots and shoes was made. "And what do we make of the horns?" the teacher queried. Up shot the hand of a small boy. "Well, what is it, my boy?" "Hornaments, sir." The train was pulling out and the old gentleman was just settling down comfort- ably. Suddenly the door burst open, and a young man tumbled into the coach and seated himself, panting and puffing, op- posite. The latter looked on with obvious disapproval. "You must be very unfit, young man," he said, after a while. "Why, when I was young I never panted like that after a run." "Perhaps not," said the other, "but I missed this train at the last station." A traveling salesman, having missed a bus, found himself with two hours to spend in Brushville. He approached a native. Got a picture show here?" No " tx u A poolroom, or library?" "No." "Well, how on earth do you amuse yourselves?" "We go down to the grocery store in the evenings and watch the bacon slicer work." A minister, traveling on one of those way-trains that stops at every station on a side line, was reading his Bible. "Find anything about this railroad in that book?" asked the conductor, as he reached for the minister's ticket. "Yes," replied the preacher, "In the very first chapter it says that the Lord made every creeping thing." The curate was passing down the village street when he encountered two boys fighting. He promptly seized the tallest one by the collar and said to him, "What are you two fighting about?" "We were fighting about you," the boy replied. "Sammy Jones said you hadn't the brains of a hen, and I said you had." The following notice was inserted in a rural weekly: "Anyone found near my chicken house at night will be found there next morn- ing." Diogenes met a World War veteran. "What were you in the war?" he asked. "A private," the old soldier answered. And Diogenes blew out his lamp and went home. C Visiting lecturer, indignantly, telephon- ing: "Are you the man who interviewed me this morning?" A Reporter, answering from the newspa- per office: "Yes. What's the matter?" "You've got me down in the evening paper as making a perfectly insane state- ment." "I printed just what you told me." "You report me as speaking of the days when great men were riding Greek goats." "Yes. Isn't that what you said?" "Certainly not, you blunderer, I said 'writing Greek odesl' " A young man went to his doctor com- plaining of insomnia. The doctor exam- ined him, found nothing radically wrong, and advised the man to start counting when he went to bed and go on until he fell asleep. The following day he was back again at the doctor's house. "Well," asked the medico, "and did you follow my advice?" "I did," replied the patient. "I contin- ually counted up to 45,875." "And then you fell asleep?" "Oh, no, doctor! Then it was time to get up."
