"It will be my turn next," I said severely. " No, no I" exclaimed Gould, "look, lie is there still !" I looked, and, sitting on the chair I saw a brown, soft, unformn d lump, about as large as a man's fist. We drew closer and surveyed the object. It seemed a bal of fur, brown, and prettily mottled.

Pun. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 1 May 1885
Puin. Whenever a young man finds that he has given expression to. a pun, he should take a pieces of assafcctida about as big as a hickory-nut and chew it. He will net feel like' making an other pun as long as the taste of the drug remains in his moutlh..He should carry some of the diug in his vest [pocket when he goes out in company, airndtl-keip~ra'place»in hie moitl iconi-, stantly. It may be offensive to the company, but it will not he half so ofiensive as his old back-number, teeth worn puns, and he: will become a favourite. If this course will not cure him lie had better' go and drown him self. There is no such thing as a new pun, as every wold that is u-:ceptible of a I un has been punned upon for thou sands of years, so when you hear a per son make a pun you be sure that it is a thousand years old.
