Actor Who Could Not Write.
The true story of "Joe Miller's Joke
Book," is an interesting bit of literary
history. Truth Is that Joe Miller never
read a joke In his life, and therefore
could not have compiled a book of
jokes. For Joe Miller could not read.
He was an ignorant actor, who
achieved great success In 1714 at the
Drury Lane theater In London. And
the only way that Joe Miller could
memorize the lines of his parts was
to have them read and reread to him
until he was able to repeat them, the
duty of thus drumming dialogue and
cues into the comedian's mind being
entrusted to a wife, whom he had mar married
ried married for the purpose.
Off the stage or on. Miller was not
a wit or humorist. But a year after
his death a pamphlet appeared in
which 247 jests were given, of which
only three were ascribed to Joe Miller.
They had been compiled by a man
with the appropriate name of Mottely.
By the middle of the Nintf-enth rrn rrn-tury

increased by successive compilers to

BUILD FROM FOUNDATION
We have heard scouting praised by
judges and fire chiefs, by clergymen
and policemen. Recently came a ver verdict
dict verdict In favor of scouting as a leaven
by a representative of another calling
a Lincoln (Illinois) motorman. This
gentleman announces that since scout scouting
ing scouting took root in Lincoln he has noticed
a marked decrease of mischievous and
annoying pranks on the part of boys
who formerly liked to "flip"' cars and
do other things to make themselves a
nuisance to car men. The speaker
was of the opinion that the boy scout
attitude of mind has had much to do
with this desirable change, not only
because the movement puts its fol followers
lowers followers on their honor, but also be because
cause because It gives boys something useful
and interesting to occupy their time
and attention, which is, by the way, an
opinion arrived at independently and
coincides with that of some of the
most famous educators In the world.
An editorial In the Lincoln Star re reporting
porting reporting the motorman'8 verdict adds:
"This may be a little matter as
things go, but It Is one of the small
matters that go to make big ones."
The scouts believe In going to the bot bottom

are right in small things they will not
err in the larger.
