The Burial of Hopes

F. Peter Dunne of Mr. Dooley fame once told a story, says the Christian Register, about the evening paper in which Mr. Dooley first made his appearance – an ill-fatel sheet which the gods loved. 

One day, just before the end, a funeral passed the office with a band playing the dead march from ”’Saul.”

The editor and Mr. Dunne watched it with emotions and fear. 

“Can it be,” they whispered, “our subscriber?” – Boston Post.
