A brawny Scotchman offered his blood. The patient gave him $ 50 for the first pint, $ 25 for the second pint- but the third time he had so much Scotch blood in him that he only thanked him. " How do you like your new boss, Mayme?" " Oh, he ain't so bad, Lil, only he's kinda' bigoted." " Whadda y'mean bigoted?" " Well, he thinks words can only be spelled one way."

Then he added, brandishing his razor: " But today I don't care a rap. I backed a winning horse yesterday and d~ ew $ 25." The congregation had come to pray for rain, and were met at the church door by the clergyman. He looked them over and observed: " My friends, where is your faith? You have come to pray for rain and not one of you brought an umbrella." In going over the records of the Navy Recruiting Station at Detroit, it was · observed that only one man named Murphy had been enlisted dur­ing the past 14 years from Michigan.

It makes recommendations for changes in de­sign of further construction. When the cost of repairs to any naval vessel appears disapproportionate to her value, the board may inspect her and report upon her with the view of sale, determining whether she should be sold as a ship or as a hulk and what equipment would be retained for fur­ther use. Prior to the inspection of a ship, the Captain submits for the boards consideration a written statement relative to such repairs and alterations as he deems necessary. If there are any alterations which he deems neces­sary or desirable that have been turn­ed down by one of the bureaus he submits it to the board for reconsider­ation.
