THIS WILL KILL OR CURE. Are you given to lisping ? If you are, read aloud the following. Take it easy and do not lose your temper, says the Penny Magazine t "Amidst the mists and coldest frosts, With barest wrists and stoutest boasts, He thrusts his fists against the posts, And still insists he sees the ghosts." You should manage the above any time within a fortnight, and then you may try this one: "Thou wreath'd'st and muzzl'd'st the far-fetched ox, and imprison'd'st him in the volcanic Mexican mountain of Popocatepetl in Cotopaxi." By this time you will have passed the elementary Stage, and may tackle something really hard, such as— ."When a twister, a-twisting, would twist him a twist, For twisting a twist, three twists will he twist; But if one of the twists untwists from the twist, The twist thus untwisting untwisteth the twist." At thi3 point we believe that most lispers are either quite cured or else they indignantly decline to go any further; but it is really advisable that you should master this last and most difficult of all "Theophilus Thistle, the successful thistle-sifter, in sifting a sieveful of unsifted thistles, thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb. If, then, Theophilus Thistle, the success- ful thistle-sifter, in sifting a sieveful of unsifted thistles, thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb, see that thou, in sifting a sieveful of unsifted thistles, thrust not three thousand thistles through the thick of thy thumb." If, after this, you are a lisper, we are afraid we Can do nothing more for you. 0
