Long ago Jack Kirby used be out late all night playing cards. They had it as a habit. They used leave a cover of potatoes near the fire. When he came this night he got the cover of potatoes and put them on one chair and sat down on the other chair. He left the chairs and the cover there and went to bed. He was not long in bed when he heard a great noise. He got up and got a light. When he came down to the kitchen the chairs and all were fixed up against the wall and the hearth was swept clean. His mother heard him and asked him what happened. He said that the cat knocked a mug.
