Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Well sir, I've searched this room high and low for that old valise of mine and I can not find it. Huh! That's odd, well!
/
Mr. Bunion: Can't find it anywhere, eh? Did you look all over the house? Everywhere?
Wife: I've looked in every corner and I can not find it.
/
Mr. Bunion: I suppose you've heard of my loss. My valise being missing, Ike?
Ike: Oh, yes! And I've searched the whole building. Can't find any trace of it. No, sir!
/
Mr. Bunion: Have you got any word yet about whether they've heard anything?
Police Man: Not a word. The Chief said this morning that that valise was not in this city nowheres, he is positive.
/
Mr. Bunion: Get any word yet, General?
General: Not a word. That valise is not in this country, that is sure! We've searched the whole country in and out and upside down.
/
Mr. Bunion: Hurrah! Harrooh! At last its gone! and I'm so happy!
/
Mr. Bunion: Confound! People who will throw banana peels on the sidewalk!!!!
