A certain archbishop, getting alone in years, had been worried for some time that he would fall a victim to a paralytic stroke. One evening, while playing chess with a charming young lady, he suddenly became very agitated, and feeling that his  presentiment  had been fulfilled, he fell back in his chair, murmuring,

“Your move”.

Alarmed, his partner hurried to his side,

“Are you ill?”, she asked.

“It has come”, the Archbishop replied, “at last it has come, my right side is paralysed”.

“How can you be so sure?”

 I have been pinching my leg” weakly said the Archbishop, “and there is absolutely no feeling”.

“Oh”, she said the charming young lady, blushing profusely, “your Grace, I do beg your pardon, but it was my leg you are pinching.”

My Prescription – Skipping Rope

A lady much afflicted with nervous complaints went to consult the celebrated surgeon Dr Abernethy(18th century). The rough and caustic manner in which he catechized her, so discomposed the fair one’s weak spirits, that she was thrown into a fit of hysterics. On parting she put the usual fee in his hands in the form of a sovereign and a shilling. Dr Abernethy pocketed the sovereign with one hand, and with the other presented the shilling to her, saying gravely,

“Here  madam, take this shilling, go to the next toy shop, buy a skipping rope, and use it every day; it will do you more good than all my prescriptions”.
