Bits and Pieces

Bacteriologists having pronounced modern bullets sanitary, it is inconsiderate and obstinate on the part of soldiers to die from their effects.

To other horrors of peace should be added the man who brings with him to the restaurant table his dead and decomposing cigar.

People who say, “I know I’m hard to get along with, but I can’t help it,” wouldn’t do better if they had a chance.

Shirt sleeve diplomacy beats the bare bayonet kind, anyway.

Even better than Bernard Shaw’s advice to the soldiers to “shoot their officers and go home” is Dr. Karl Liebknecht’s, which is simply to “go home,” leaving the officers and aristocrats to continue the fighting if they will.

The average boarding house chicken is a great help to the dentist.

If some men had their lives to live again they probably wouldn’t leave so many dollars for their heirs to scrap over.
