The "hediter" had a birthday coming and just as the clock struck 12 he was invited to try a trapes act over a couple of sofa pillows with his eyes blind- ed by a hand kerchief. Tenderly gently and gingerly-knowing the care of the Mrs. for the pil- lows-he proceeded when he found his ponderous anatomy ensconced in the broad lap of Will Wolsey and like a thousand bees and hor- nc-ts b'vVui'iiiiiig beneath his coat- tails, came the patter, patter, pat, slapper. shipper, slap of everyone present.
