A Very Light Yarn.
Peter O’Leum of the oil regions has twin daughters named Gasoline and Kerosene. They are a pair of fine girls, and compared to their cruel old father they are refined and, on occasion, brilliant. A young man named Naphtha, a volatile cousin, went sparking one of the girls last week and hasn’t benzine since.—Now and then. The chances are that like most young people they preferred to spark in the dark, and the young fellow was afraid that the vapor might ignite and create an explosion when the “old man” struck a light.— Once in a While.
