1890: Local Logic

Expressions of People Picked Up by Diligent Reporters.

I was in Middletown, Conn., not long ago, and the friend with whom I was stopping one day invited a young lady, visiting the town from California, to come in and see a new upright piano which her father had just bought her. The California girl admired the tone and ornamentation of the instrument very much. All at once, however, she exclaimed in a voice of deep distress, “but there’s no place about it to hide a pie!”– Ethel Kufferneck.

From The News (Frederick, Maryland), Wednesday, March 26, 1890.
