Now go into the parlor, and stop there un til we come down." Half-an-hour later, on going into the parlor, she found Harold sitting on a chair, wet through, holding a rain sodden parcel in his hands. "Whatever is the matter, Harold?" she asked. "Where' have you been?" "I've only been home for my night shirt." An old farmer was' noted for boast ing about the products of his farm. So one day a neighbor, thinking to take a rise out of him, sent his man to ask if he could have the loan of his cross-cut saw to cut a turnip up, so as to get it in the cart. He was not quite sure, however, that he had had the best of it when he! received the following reply: "You should have had the saw with pleasure, but I have just got it ...

Sinister. Sir George Alexander is another of those popular actors who receive in numerable requests from stage-struck folk to be allowed to join his com pany. He tells one amusing story of a clergyman whose son has gone on the stage. "My son, John," the clergyman wrote to Sir George, "threatens to go on the stage, and I want you to stop him." But in spite of every opposition, the young man did go on the stage. Some time afterwards Sir George met him. "Well, how does your father take it?" he asked. "I haven't seen him- lately," John replied, "but I know he still takes some interest in me because when ever there is anything in the news papers about 'an actor being charged with some crime he always underlines the report and sends the paper to .me!"
