Mister Ron's Basement #1250
C. B. Lewis wrote weekly columns of humor for newspapers for over fifty years! Long time Basement listeners are very familiar with his stories of Mr. Bowser, which we have been presenting for a long time. His earliest work might be considered his funniest. This week, we are presenting some hilarious gems from his 1875 collection, 'Quad's Odds.'
Today we hear about a grocer who learned a painful lesson in 'The Awful Fate of the Man Who Advertised.'
Time: approx five and a half minutes
