Eu sec that shop or stall by there with the pretty books on the counter ? Wall, I saw the bill sayin' "Please take one," and so I takes one of each sort until I had a nieo bundle like. Then the man comes up, quite pleasant be looked. Have eu got enough, he said 1 in English. "Well," I said back, have eu got hn.v ilore, Sir?" (i Oh yes," he said, "plenty where they come from.

Twice over I went, and then he stopped short. "Aye master," he said, not qwt-e so friendly in his voice this time, Aye mister," eu don't want nmch do you?" No more, nor that indeed sir," I said back. Can't esu thmk of a. few maro cousins, my dear sir?" ho said, and then I sees that he is spe-akin' sareastic, and I siaid to myself "Now, Caebricks boy! Eu hold him equal. "Eu know," IIA went on to talk, "we like to nwke family distributions like this. Eu get hold of a harrow and I'll fill it with. enough books to send to your seventy- seventh cousins." I said to him that if he would give me enough to go round my third cousin.5 and my Welsh uncles it would be quite enough. An' indeed a regular sport he was. He gived me a big bundle, and as I saicT "Thank eu kindly, he said to me "Toil my word, no wonder we love Lloyd George! Are eu all the same in Wyles?" "Pretty much indeed," I told him. "My word!" he said, "fnncy a natian. of Lloyd George's!" < Have eu been down to the pigs, hachgen ? Well, indeed, it's savin, it I am if I never teU the troth again: there's pig, down by there as big as bulls.

Aye, boy, hotter music nor Susie Hannah playin' on the piano it would be to have that. ol' Goliath squealin' in our back garden, ?nd waitin' to bo turned into ?acon. I have enjoyed the show right tidy. As good as a eyraanfa any day I holds.
