♦ A RESOURCEFUL MILKMAN. H You'll find," said the proprietor of a dairy to a new milkman who was taking over the walk," that the lady at 75 is inclined to find fault. You must soothe her down, and not be rude to her; she is a pretty good customer." Leave that to me, sir," answered the milkman. Those eggs you left here yesterday were stale," grunted the woman at No. 75 on the milkman's second visit. Them heggs was laid -arf an 'our afore you 'em by special quick-laying birds imported from the Mooly Wampo Island, ma'am, and they came down to this very 'ouse by Marconi- graph, so as ye should get 'em fresh. A bit of twangy flavour they may 'ave, madam, but you can lay odds they worn't 6tale." The fault-finding lady gasped, The milk didn't seem so good as usual yes- terday either," she ventured. a The guv'nor will be cut hup when 'e 'al"s that, ma'am," continued the milkman. u'E sent down to Halderney a purpus for a cow what'll eat nothing but peaches and pine-apples. í Never mind the hexpense," says he, í this 'ere cow we keeps a purpus for the lady at 75; and mind it sleeps on a feather bed at nights,'he says, í and don't forget the heiderdown quilt.' Was there anything wrong with the butter, ma'am?" But the lady shook her head; she had been effectively appeased.
