JUST a few of a number of Chinese Word Pictures used by Frederic Poole in his fifteen minute delightful crayon sketch on The Humor of the Chinese Written Language.
The most novel entertainment on the public platform charmingly instructive and a ripple of merriment from beginning to end.
Always presented as a prelude to his
INTERPRETATION OF THE CHINESE DRAMA
and his Illustrated Lectures on
CHINA, ANCIENT AND MODERN
After Mr. Poole's eleventh appearance before the Academy of Science and Art, Carnegie Hall, Pittsburgh, Mr. J. B. Hench, Secretary, wrote:—
Your chalk talks on the Chinese language might well be expanded to take up the whole evening.
Your sallies of wit are as irresistible as they are unexpected.
Your work puts you in the front rank.
