Mister Ron's Basement #1328
This week we have dug out an 1881 book called "Ha! Ha!! Ha!!!' It is composed of humorous pieces clipped from various newspapers. The authors are listed as Scissors and Paste.
The authors of the pieces are not credited, but some of the newspapers are. From this we can attempt to determine who the writers are. We're just guessing here, but today's clever piece from the South Bend Tribune was most likely an effort of that newspaper's editor, Richard H. Lyon. It is called 'A Typographical Injury to Charley Bender.'
Time: approx four minutes
