In fcpito of the fact that the glass is below zero, my right foot rejoices in more than normal warmth, whereas the left is quite rigid and stiff, and cold as ice.” Upon the advice of the family doctor, who was sent for without delay, the professor was sent to bed, when it was discovered he had two socks upon his right foot, while his loft was entirely unprotected.

Lady : “ How old are you, little boy ?” Little Darky : “ Well, if you go by what mudder say, I specie I’s six ; but if you gose by de frm I’s had, I’s moit a hundred.”
