A Curiosity of Hungarian Divorce


A farmer was arrested in a village in Hungary for firing two shots through the window of an inn at his wife and her father. Fortunately his aim was bad. On being asked his reason for the attempt he stated that he had already had nine wives, who had all consented, at his request, to be divorced. His tenth and present wife, however, acting on the "injudicious advice" of her father, refused, and consequently he felt annoyed. — London Standard.

Telephone Girl — I want to look at some black kid gloves.
Saleslady — What number, please?
Telephone Girl (surprised) — Why, how did you know that I worked there? — Somerville Journal.
