A MAN was crowded off the dock into the water. He threw up his hands and called for help.

The owner of the dock said, " We must allow this man full liberty to find a place for himself and not interfere with natural laws."

"True," said the man who had pushed him off, "he stretched his hands toward the clouds; we need only create in him a desire for the land," so he threw him a set of quoits.

"He needs," said the Radical, "not only Liberty, but Land."
