The Dew

     Tambo.—Can you tell me the difference between the dew that falls on the grass and the late President McKinley?
     Int.—I’m afraid I could never guess that one. You tell us the difference, Tambo.
     Tambo.—Well, sir, one is mist from the heavens and the other is missed from the earth.
