Americans in the Strand. DUBLIN THRUBBLE. Date-stamped on hins iggs laid in Oirish Free
State are to be a patriotic green in future. Siveral hins have been arristed for laying
iggs wid orange yolks. "LONDON A CITY OF PROSPERITY" - \USays visiting millionaire.\u "Yeh,
I been livin' at the Swellchester fer tree weeks an' I ain't seen one starving
millionaire". COURT CIRCULAR. Coronation Claims Court. Mr. Mussolini, claiming to exercise
his hereditary function as Royal Sniffer of the Procession Route. (Under consideration by
