Cajanus. a Swedtob giant who was

London in 1742; and several old hand

Thirty years later we have Charles

however, died young, at the age of
twenty-two. from bard drinking. Cot

born at Kinsale In 1761 and at the age
of fifteen was eight feet high. This

A poet once Jumped to the condualoa
that there was no rhyme to Tlpperary
and said ao, whereupon an Indignant
Irishman, who chanced also to be a bit
of a versifier, pounced upon him and
poked fun at him In a lengthy poem,
every other line of which rhymed or
wo supposed to rhyme with the place
bt question. Thus:
A hard there was In sad quandary
To find a rhyme for Tlpperary.
Look labored he through January,
Tet found no rhyme for Tlpperary;
Tolled every day In February.
But tolled In vain for Tlpperary:
Searched Hebrew text and commentary,
But searched In vain for Tlpperary.
And so on through many scores of
stanzas, ending up with:
He paced about hia aviary.
Burnt In despair his dictionary.
Blew up sky hlsh his secretary.
And then in wrath and anger sware he
There was ao rhyme for Tlpperary.
