<j> <t> RATHER LATE IN THE DAY, PERHAPS ! </t> " Oh, grandpapa dear, such fun ! The fortuneteller's come ! Do come and have your fortune told ! " <a> Punch </a> </j>

<j> <t> A LUSUS NATURE. </t> A paragraph in the P.M.G., the other day, was headed, " A Lion Loose in a Circus. " Bad enough. But a still more extraordinary incident would have been A Lion "tight" in a Circus. <a> Punch </a> </j>

<j> <t>[Untitled]</t> THE opposition of the Madrid tradespeople to the New Bank Act continues. Printed notices are to be posted up in the windows announcing that bank notes will not be accepted. Clearly these are not notes of admiration ! <a> Moonshine </a> </j>

<j> <t> GOOD SUBJECT FOR A PLAY WITHOUT WORDS. </t> Humpty Dumb-ty. <a> Funny Folks </a> </j>

<j> <t>[Untitled]</t> HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS the Commander-in-chief has issued instructions for the immediate closing of an Orange lodge, which has been formed in an infantry battalion in India. This is a sort of orange without appeal, and the duke gives it no quarters. <a> Moonshine </a> </j>

<j> <t> BALD CRITICISM. </t> Clarice : Look ! There's Herbert Thincropp in the stalls. Don't you think it's time he took to the dress circle or private boxes ? - Isenlt : Yes ; or used a good hair restorer. <a> Fun </a> </j>

<j> <t> DOMESTIC ECONOMY. </t> She : Won't you have some of your favourite pudding ? I've made it expressively for you. - He : My dear, this is extravagance - we can't afford it. You know it isn't paid for. - She : Well, never mind ; if it isn't paid for I've got the receipt. [ Then he had two helpings. ] <a> Fun </a> </j>

<j> <t> A SHOOTING STAR. </t> Miss Leale. <a> Funny Folks </a> </j>

<j> <t> BEGINNING EARLY. </t> Mother : Dear, oh dear, Louise, you are chattering like the little waves. What makes you chatter so much, child ? - Louise : Cos, mamma, I've lots to say ! <a> Pick-Me-Up </a> </j>

<j> <t> POETICAL AND PRACTICAL. </t> Bridie : My heart's dearest, you will trust me now and for ever, won't you ? - Hubbie : Can you doubt it, my angel ? - Indeed I will ! - Bridie : Then trust me now and for ever, my love - with a SL. note ? <a> Pick-Me-Up </a> </j>

<j> <t>[Untitled]</t> THERE are a million more females than males in Scotland, so the census has just discovered. This is bad news for our English girls ; for, of course, the Scotch ladies will not sit down to this state of things. It has always been impossible to keep the Scotch men from coming South to better themselves ; it will be equally impossible now to prevent the Scotch women from following them. <a> Moonshine </a> </j>

<j> <t> THE SWEETS OF THE BISLEY COMPETITION. </t> The Bull's-eyes. <a> Funny Folks </a> </j>

<j> <t> JEAMES'S SUMMARY. </t> Jeames : Dull session, dull season ! - Things bad in the City ! - Hinfluenza all hover the shop ; and, now the Hemp'rors gone, the sooner we're horf the better ! ! <a> Punch </a> </j>

<j> <t> " PROOF " POSITIVE. </t> Madge : Pa, that nice young fellow, Mr. Downing, is awfully fond of kissing. - Pater : How did you find that out, you good-for-nothing girl ? - Madge : I had it from his own lips, pa. <a> Fun </a> </j>

<j> <t>[Untitled]</t> SOME persons think themselves emancipated when, after all, they are only addlepated. <a> Judy </a> </j>

<j> <t> SARCOPHAGUS FOR DEAD LETTERS. </t> A Post-crypt. <a> Judy </a> </j>

<j> <t>[Untitled]</t> CONJUGAL scene between M. and Mme. de Bondamaousse : " Why, " said the husband, " do you put the hair of another woman on your head ? " - " Why, " retorted his better half, " do you wear the skin of another calf on your hands. " <a> Pick-Me-Up </a> </j>

<j> <t> WHAT MISSS LEALE SHOULD HAVE BEEN CHRISTENED. </t> Aim-y <a> Funny Folks </a> </j>

<j> <t> REQUISITE FOR GOING TO LAW. </t> A good deal of money, a good deal of patience, a good cause, a good attorney, a good counsel, a good evidence, a good jury, a goo judge, and - good luck. <a> The Bristol Owl. </a> </j>

<j> <t> PEOPLE WHO STAND ON SLIPPERY PLACES. </t> Those who live on the fat of the land. <a> Funny Folks. </a> </j>
