WIT AND HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 3 May 1884
WIT AND HUMOUIi. A jaw, eight feet long, has lately been unearthed at Wisconsin. It is supposed to have belonged to a woman of the Miocene ago. A large portion of the swamps of Florida are said to be capable of produoing five hun dred bushels of frogs to the acre, with aliga tars enough for fencing. An embryo poot, who is certainly a close observer of human nature, remarks—1 Time marches on with the slow measured tread of a man working by the day.' The question whether angels fly or not has led to a serious fight between two Amer ican professors. They fought several rounds. The man for the wings conquered. It is now announoed, on the authority of an eminent physican, that it is considered unhealthy to rise befere eight o'clock in the morning. This applies to men only. Wives can rise at seven and light the fire as here tofore/ In a state out west, whioh shall be name less, they never suo for. divoroe. When a husband gets discouraged, he takes his wife to the brow of a cliff to view t...

Sally Salter she was a young teaoher that • taught, And her friend, Charley Churoli, was a preacher that praught, Though his friends all declared him a poreeoher who scraught. His heart, when he saw her, kept sinking and sunk. And his eyes, meeting hers, kept winking and wtink, While she, in her turn, fell to thinking and thunk. Ho hastened to woo her, and sweetly ho woood, For his love to hor grew—to a mountain it grewed, And what he was longing to do then he doed. In secret he wanted to speak, and he spoke, To seek with his lips what his heart had long soke, . So he managed to let the truth leak, and it loko. He asked hor to rido to the churoli, and they rodo, They so sweotly did glide that they both thought thoy glode, And they came to the place to bo tied, and wore tode. Then " Homewcrd," he said," let us drive," and they drove; . As soon as they wished to arrive they arrove ; For whatever ho couldn't contrive sho con trove. The kiss he was dying ...
