One day last winter Mr. and Mrs, Mullen and the children were on 'a crowded car. When the car stopped at Mullen's destination, it required some time for the six to make their exit. While Mullen is a slender chap, he has i decidedly fat 'voice. Some of the passengers tittered as father and mother squeezed the young sters through the exit. AsT his wife stepped off, Mullen said : "Jennie, have you all the children?" "I -guess so," replied his wife, who was a bit sore the way the kiddies were cutting up. "Don't start the. car, motorman, until we count them," replied Mullen, trying to keep a straight face. The motorman was wise. He threw on the juice and the passengers guffawed. What Mts.
