3) Love Pie. Ingred. - 1 Shady tree, 1 Small seat, 4 Lips well pressed together, 1 Neat waist well squeezed. Method - Mix the ingredients well together & serve in the dark. E. Linden, Ardenlee Avenue, Belfast

Where is he now? What! don't you know, What's happened now to Jim, Why! he's in Khaki now; and oh! The difference to him. K. or R. McC.

2) Oh ye who are so good yourselves, So pius & so holy, Have naught to do but mark & tell, Your neighbours faults & folly. J. ?
3) A Recipe for Love. Take two young folks with light young hearts and mix them up in equal parts, Add sentiment to suit the taste, also a slim attractive waist. Season with kisses, cakes and sweets and prospects of a hopeful kind, also a purse quite amply lined, With bliss the whole should then be stirred, Until he meets another Bird. Jas. Cairns 22/11/19
