Sleeping On One Side *
Have you ever seen anyone with Bell's Palsy? Well, it's quite a sight.
One Danny Shaw got this peculiar ailment the other day from sleeping in
a cold dorm-and,-sleeping on the same side all night long. So, one side
of his puss became immovable, as it were. And the whole thing becomes
quite uncanny when he is struck by a burst of mirth and laughs out of one
side of his face, the other remaining quite blank.'
