LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION: “Money can buy a pretty good dog but it can’t put the wag in his tail.”

AUTHOR: Josh Billings was the pen name of humorist born Henry Wheeler Shaw (20 April 1818 – 14 October
1885) One of the "brightest and most popular humorous men of the day," Shaw was best know for his homespun philosophy, with
©Puzzles by Pappacom tremendous originality. His humor was filled with comic devices of understatement, anticlimax and antiproverbialism, conveying a sense of
ease and spontaneity that belied the actual effort and time that went into each composition. He once said he worked three hours on one
particular saying, just ’to get it right.’ His imagery is sharp and original, and his sayings 'excel in succinctness.' Though a deep thinker, he
usually managed to override gloom with lighthearted witticisms that convinced an audience that "life was worth living after all".
