LAUGHABLE DEFINITIONS. Many children are so crammed with everything that they really know nothing. In proof of this, read these veritable specimens of definitions, written by public school children "Stability is the taking care of a stable." "A mosquito is the child of black and white parents," "Monastery is the place for monsters." "Tocsin is something to do with getting drunk." Expostulation is to have the smallpox." "Cannible is two brothers who killed each other in the Bible." "Anatomy is the human body, which consists of three parts, the head, the chist, and the stummick. The head contains the eyes and brains, if any; the chist contains the lungs and a piece of the liven The stummick i, devoted to the bowels, of which there are five, a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes w andy."
