The next moment the owner of the shop, an old lady, came screaming down from upstairs in a towering rage. "What doe ye mean. ye daft idiot!" she cried. "Dae ye no ken that rope's tied to the cradle, and ye've thrown the bairn oot?" Readers of our paper will do well, now that cutting and stripping is com pleted, to write to Messrs.
