A Weak Mind
Miss Bowland taught school at Norway, Me., and she evidently understood how to make the boys and girls put the best foot forward. One day she was putting the class through the toe-the-line drill in the presence of two young gentlemen visitors from out of town. These lively spectators, at some feat of the youthful squad, indulged in a giggle. “Children,” exclaimed Miss Bowland in her loud, clear tomes, “What is it a sing of to see people laughing?” “A weak mind,” shouted every voice, and the young men subsided.-Boston Traveller.
