The Handy Man.
Tommy came out of a room in which father was tacking down a carpet. He was crying lustily.
“Why, Tommy, what's the matter?” asked his mother.
“P-p-p-papa hit his finger with the hammer,” sobbed Tommy.
“Well, you needn't cry at a thing like that,” comforted the mother. “Why didn't you laugh?”
“I did,” sobbed Tommy, disconsolately.
