say was the biggest?"

friend. "I haven't seen a vaudeville show
since I was a boy. I must be going.'
"Hold on! The baby was the biggest be
cause It was a little Bigger. Ha. ha! Ain't
It a peach? But Mr. Bigger died, leaving
Baby Bigger and Mrs. Bigger. Which, of
thorn was the biggest after that?"
"Well, good bye."
"Hold' on. He was still the biggest. Mr.
