THE RETURN OF FIDO
A conservative old farmer had saved enough money to buy a car. One
day while backing out of the garage, he ran over old Fido who had been his
pet for years. He was nearly heartbroken but never wasteful, so he sent the
hide away to be made into a rug, the carcass he sold to a restaurant, represent-
ing it to be a racoon.
A day or so later he was detained in town through the dinner hour.
Being hungry he asked for a second helping of the meat. When the waiter
returned with the second dish, the farmer said: "This sure is good meat, where
did you get it?" "Why that's part of the racoon you sold us a few days ago,"
was the reply.
The farmer pushed his plate away, arose from the table, as he murmured:
"Fido, when you were alive, I called you time after time and you did not
come, but you are coming this time."
MISS WALLACE: Dever, I thought you said it would take you only
an hour to go to town and back.
DEVER: Yes, Miss Wallace, but when I was at town I was neither
going nor coming.
I have a faculate mind
And try to be a Prof.,
But how can I be dignified,
When I've fallen for a Soph.
