When he Wi it he e^'tp'-y his rent, and whea ne 'as it he \.ej it." [JUDY.] ON TUB SAFE SIDK.â Bob. â Weel, Sandy, and where wer ye last nicht? Sa,idy.-Ob, I w,¡s round at one o' thae Billiard-r :oms, where there were twa chaps fechting about Vreak-ng the balls, and as I thocht they might mak me pay fer them I cam awa oot. GOOD Boy -Cori scie nti,-)us newsvendor, who has been dispatched with all speed to the refreshment-room by a famishing passenger to fetch a penny roll, bribed with an additional penny to get one for himself (to famishing passenger) Please, sir, Iiere's your penny there was only one left. GHASTLY GRAMMAIL.-The fatal termination to so many recent cases of bronchitis suggests an addition to the conventional parsing of the verb "to cough," viz., pres. part coughing; past part., coughed; fllture part., coffin. ODD EFFECTS.â20s in the X. BAD BUSINESS.âClergyman (who suddenly discovers that he has Riven Cabby the counterfeit florin that he was anxious to destroy) Hi, Cabby I've made a mistake! Cabby (who has palmed off a bad shilling in change, and is hurriedly driving off): No. sir you'll find it quite corrcct 1 Hie JACET.âThe scandal pertaining to the abominable practice of removing human remaini apparently involves some verbal contradiction, for in the nature of things that which is removed can hardly be said to remain. [HN.] CUBT COMMENTS. The Jumbo topic continues to literally and figuratively the biggest thing of the season. One man has offered E50 towards a subscription, another has christened his child JuuJLn. The whole thing is more Zoo than logical. Tramcars propelled by electricity are the latest invention, one having been successfully tried at Leytonstone on the 4th inst. The principle is the storage of the electric force in cells, and could be equally well applied to cabs and carriages. If this obtains, what a sell for owners of horses George Nutton, a private in the Black Watch, has been sente ced to twelve months' imprison- ment for stealing a watch from Charles Gray, whom he temporarily deprived of sight by throwing pepper into his eyes. For such dastardly act this was Nutton like sufficient punishment. Had we been on the bench we'd >. ive given him pepper." Another fisher-lad is reported to have been drowned from a Hull smack. 4 l As more than twenty boys have been lost in this way since October, it certainly "smacks" of foul play. At the Surrey Sessions, on Monday, the 6th in8t Elizabeth Corbet was sentenced to twelve years' penal servitude for stealing an ulster. It is true she had often been previously convicted but still, twelve years for stealing an ulster seems incom- prehensible, except that she was tried by Mr Uardman. PE-CUE-LIAR.âA publican has just been fined for allowing betting in his tavern during a billiard match, which is- contrary to the canons of the law. The betters (and abettors) evidently wanted to "pocket" something else besides the balls. f The marker said that he frequently remarked, No betting allowed," but admitted that, tho gh there was no betting allowed, there was plenty on the Cue-T." [MOONSHINE.] A FVTURR POSSIBILITY. --Mrs Grand Dame du Monde (to Husband). Late for dinner, are we ? Very sorry, I'm sure. Truth is Marie, nnd I have been over to Paris to order some new dresses. Sorry to have kept you waiting.
