"Look here," began the youth, as he entered a butcher's shop, and
displayed two lovely-looking black-and-blue eyes, "you have fresh beef
for sale?"

"I have," responded the butcher.

"And fresh beef is good for black eyes, is it not?"

"It is."

"And you foretold that from his hand?"

"Yes, it had four aces in it."

gentleman. "Did he explain the reason why he would not let you go?"

"Yes, sir. He said there wasn't bait enough for two."

"My good man, you had better take the trolley car home."

_Mrs. Newlywed:_ "Oh, Jack, you left the kitchen door open and the
draught has shut my cookery book, so that now I haven't the faintest
idea what it is I'm cooking."

"Goin' in that house over there?" said the first tramp.

"I tried that house last week. I ain't goin' there any more," replied
Tramp No. 2.

"'Fraid on account of the dog?"

"Me trousers are."

"Trousers are what?"

"Frayed on account of the dog."
