Aar exchange says, one day a
travelling man (you know what
that means) expressed surprise to
•n Irishman, who was feeding
meat to his chickens. He told
Pat it was a great waste, and sug
gested that he mix sawdust with
it and save half of his meal. Pat
was pleased with the idea, and
tried it. Later, the traveling man
was around again, and asked Pst
how the plan succeeded. It works
beautifully, exclaimed Pat. See
that yellow hen? Well I gave her
half and half and then gave her
all sawdust, and she hatched three
chickens with wooden legs and
the fourth one be jama, was a
darned old woodpeoker. Can’t
you give more suggestions?
