Col. Robert Ingersoli is a rapid
thinker and usually lias a good reply
on the end of his tongue whenever
he is interrupted in the midst of a
speech. On one occasion, however,
his gift of repartee failed him. It
happened that he was unusually se- 9
vere in his abuse of the Democrats,
acting, cf course, upon the supposi
lion that he was addressing an audi
ence composed entirely oi Republi
cans. After he had about finished
his diatribe he asked:
"Is there a Democrat in this whole
audience? If there is I would like
him to stand up and tell the audience
how he tec Is.'
A gray -leered old man stood up
in the crowd nnd Colonel Jngersol
turned on him.
"So you're a D-moora-, are vru ?"
'. just tell this vast audi
vou iel. Jut describe
;io:is. I want this great
crowd to ..now w-.at you lee ike."
A deathlike stillness fell upon .he
crowd and the old man replied in a
loud, piercing voice that coulil be
heard all over the housr: "I feel like
a sound h tzelnut in a bushel of rot
A roar of laughter went up from
the crowd and for once the colonel
was not ready with a very good re
