"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."

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."

College education for women is futile. If they're pretty, itis unnecessary, if they are not, it's inadequate. Historians tell us that women used cos- metics in the Middle Ages. For that mat- ter, women in the middle ages still use them. The teacher was explaining the mean- ing of the word "Unit." Picking up vari- ous objects, she asked what they were, and each time received the answer, "a unit." Finally she took an orange from her box. "And what is this ?" she asked. "A unit," was the answer. Taking her knife, the teacher peeled the orange, and holding the peeling in her hand, inquired: "What is this?" The class looked confused, but after a time a hand went up. "What is it, James?" asked the teacher. "The skin of a unit," asserted James. Customer: "Have you a book called 'Man the Master of Women'?,' Snlesgirl: "The fiction department is on the other side, sir." C "How many students are there in the university ?" "About one in every live." O A college education: Something that enables a man to get a job from a man who never went to school. Said the math professor: "Now watch the blackboard while I run through it once more." Someone has ob? .ned that it takes a student twenty minutes longer to say what he thinks than to tell what he knows. In her school essay on l'Parents," a lit- tle girl wrote: "We get our parents when they are so old that it is impossible to change their habits." For about an hour a man from Denver had been boasting to an Englishman about the magnificence of the Rocky Mountains. "You seem very proud of them," ob- served the Englishman. "You bet I am," replied the man from Denver. "And I ought to be, since my ancestors built them." The other thought this over for a few moments, and then asked, "Did you ever hear of the Dead Sea?" "Yes, indeed," replied the man from Denver. "I know all about the Dead Sea." "Well, did you know that my great grandfather killed the thing?" One Sunday morning the pastor of a Negro congregation noticed that an old face had reappeared among his Hock, and after the sermon made it a point to wel- come the supposedly repentant backslider. "This is the first time I have seen you at church for a long time," he said. "I'm sho'ly glad to see you here." . "Ah done had to come," explained Rastus. "Ah needs strengthenin'. I'se got a job white-washin' a chicken coop an' buildin' a fence roun' a watermelon patch." - 0 The distinguished but absent-minded lecturer was traveling by train but when asked for his ticket was unable to find it. "Never mind, sir," said the conductor, who knew him well, "I know you bought one, so it will be all right." "Thanks very much," said the lecturer, "but hang it all, man, I've got to find it to know where I'm going." . S Before I heard the doctors tell 1 The dangers of a kiss, f I had considered kissing you- w The nearest thing to bliss.
