A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

A LOST NIGHTSHIRT. Some years ago (says a reader) I was employed as "general" in Scot land. We were having exceedingly cold weather, so cola indeed, that every night I carried my bed from my bedroom to the kitchen floor, it being much warmer there. I had just retired, about midnight, one night, feeling rather tired after a long day's work, when clang, clang, clang! went any master's and mis tress's ibedroom bell. Now, I had just begun to feel warm, and as the hour was so late, I did not intend to an swer it; 'but in a few seconds, clang, clang, clang! went that bell again. I hastily rose, and slipped on a skirt, threw a shawl round my shoulders, and opened the kitchen door. My mistress, whb was standing up stairs on the landing, called down: "Annie, where did you put Mr. A's. nightshirt?" "Isn't it "under the pillow?" i asked. Then Mr. A. roared: "No; and you'd better come and find it!" Upstairs I went and searched every where, ibut all in vain, and wasn't Mr. A. cross, and didn't l...

A shy young man had been calling on the sweetest girl in the world for many moons, but, toeing bashful, his suit progressed slowly. Finally she decided it was up to her to start some thing, so the next time he called she pointed to the rose in his buttonhole and said, "I'll give you a kiss for that rose." A crimson flush overspread his countenance, but the exchange was made after some hesitation on his part. Then he grabbed his hat and started to leave the room. "Why, where are you going?'!.j3he asked, in surprise. "To the—eir—florist for more roses," lie called from the front door.
