Some time ago she nursed a young linnet with a broken wing until it could fly, and gave it its freedom. She has a free lunch, on plates, at all times of the day for stray kit- tens. But she has the foresight to serve it under Mr. and Mrs. RuG felle's cottage (also of Band Row), and very olten at 5 a. m. a cat ser- enade takes place. Her latest ac- quisition is a canary bird with one eye. Some one overheard her ask her husband if h~ could get a glass eye for her new pet! A regime of raw food is prevalent among the members of the band, advocated by Conductor Mulford. Manager Porter is a star pupil, lie says it is doing him a worhl of good. The numerous arguments pro and con have suggested the following stanza to Roe Plimpton: Nuts and raisins, Cabbage and slaw; That's how we eat 'era: Raw t Raw ! Raw! ! While our pencil is in the pantry department we choose to mention an "elderberry pie," donated to us by Mrs. Melhorn, wife of one of the flute players of the band. It suggested a harp, a halo, and other angelic paraphernalia ! A work of art ---with Ah,-alon material. "What do you make a week?" asked a magistrate of an Italian organ grinder who was complain- ing of boys throwing Stones at him. "'Four pounds, saTe." "Eh, what ? Four pounds for grinding an organ?" "No saTe: not for da grind---for to shut up and go away."--Tit-Bits. O. W.
