An amusing story is tokl by the virar cf Monmouth of a doctor who had been called in to attend a working man. Having done what he could for the time being, he told the wife to take her husband’s temperature in the morning. When the doctor called next day he asked if she had done as he told her. She explained that they hadn’t a “tromometer” in the house. ‘‘But I put a barometer on his chest,” sho added, "and it went to ‘very dry.’ So I gave him a pint of beer, and he’s gone to work.” ” The peopleof London are noted for their stupidity.” wrote a- schoolboy. “’Where did you get that idea?” asked the teacher. “Please, miss,” was the reply, “it rays in the text book ' the population of London is very dense* 1”
