A Placebo

WHEN Mr. Canning was about giving up Gloucester Lodge, Brompton, he said

to his gardener, as he took a farewell look of the grounds, I am sorry,

Fraser, to leave this old place.--Psha, sir, said George, don't

fret; when you had this old place, you were out of place; now you

are in place, you can get both yourself and me a better place. The

hint was taken, and old George provided for.
