A Zoo Keeper Is Ordering New Animals

The teacher put a question to the class:

“What does a cat have that no other animal

A number cried in unison:

“Fur!”

But an objector raised the point that bears and skunks have fur. One pupil raised an eager hand:

“I know, teacher–whiskers!”

But another objector laughed scornfully.

“Haw-haw! My papa has whiskers!”

The suggester of whiskers defended her idea by declaring:

“My papa ain’t got whiskers.”

“’cause he can’t!” the objector sneered. “Haw-haw! Your pa ain’t no good. My pa says—-“

The teacher rapped for order and repeated her question.

A little Johnny raised his hand, and at the teacher’s nod spoke timidly.

“Kittens!”
