Tuesday’s Piece

“After having received a lesson on government a child wrote the following:

‘An Absolute Monarchy is when He does as He likes;

a Limited Monarchy is when He don’t do as He likes;

a Republic is when He don’t do nothing at all.’ ”

(From the Boy’s Own Paper, 18th April 1903)

One thought on “Tuesday’s Piece

  1. Most boys like to think they have a girl friend, especially the 13 to 14 year olds. I would like to see an article on how to get a girl, and when you’ve got her, how to keep and please her. I would also like to see more articles on music in B.O.P. as I am a trombonist in the Tiffin School Band.

    Editor’s Reply : We will bear the suggestion for an article on how to keep a girl friend in mind! In the meantime there is an article on keeping Golden Hamsters on pages 34 and 35 of this issue.[8]
