"VOICES FROM AFAR." [BY THE MAN IN THE MOON.] A Cadoxton gentleman went into a barber's shop in the neighbourhood to get a shave. Whilst awaiting his turn, he consulted one of the time tables that were placed in a small pocket hanging on the wall. When he was going away he said, I will take this time-table, as I see you have two, and here is the penny for it," when the following conversation ensued :— BLtrber-Vot for you give me von penny more ? Gentleman -1 said I would take this time table, and that is the penny for it. Barber—Non.non, dot is von schilling. Gentleman—A shilling Why, my Aunt Sarah's torn cat, its printed price one penny what do you, eh—— Barber—Veil I tell you. One day a shentleman come in and say-" Would I have my name in time tables, one schilling for ze month."
