Caption Caption: English translation: "–Twenty five francs each word! What will you send sir? –I’m in a hurry to get out of here.// Neptune benefits/takes advantage from/of the transatlantic cable to perform on the trapeze as exercise with the carriage becoming impossible since he ate his horses to do as everyone else.// –Here is the bottle of cod liver oil that madam told me to buy her. –It is four francs? – Yes madam, and I sent a telegraph to Newfoundland to see if it is fresh, that makes it 404 francs.// –The mister went to the transatlantic telegraph to talk to America. –Oh! My god, at twenty-five francs the word! And my husband is talkative, we are ruined!// You're stupid! There is nothing humiliating, on the contrary, the new world and old are proud to have put themselves in our position. It is our transatlantic cable.// Return of the fever of the month of August. // –You want the cross on August 15. My God, sir, it is very simple, I'll give you the recipe. – You wouldn’t have anything easier than that?// Holiday of August 15th. At both theaters of war, the city of Paris saves extras by replacing them with pins.// –I won the watch! So, where are the needles? –You're stupid! They are in Germany to make war.// It is I who degreased the greasy pole! I could be useful to the lady.// –Your Bavarian beer is not frothy! – I would think so! After all that is happening at home, if you imagine she will do her head/mousse!// –You got the prize drawing this head? But it has no eyes! –The teacher at the boarding school doesn’t want us to do the eye."
